The Competition is here!

Stop doing whatever you have been doing and hurry to download the latest patch of Scania Truck Driving Simulator!

This weekend, you have a chance to win a free digital copy of Euro Truck Simulator 2 - all you need is to have a Top 3 result in a new Dangerous Drives challenge called Leave the Port! Of course we will only be able to give you your free copy of ETS2 when the game is finally finished - but you will get it the same day as the game is released on our official website.

The competition rules are simple and we don't make them too formal - don't cheat (we will see the replay after all), and try your best to have a Top 3 result on the leaderboard as of Sunday, August 5th 2012, 22:00 Central European Summer Time. Anybody with a legal copy of the game is eligible, whether the game has been purchased in digital form directly from our own website or in a DVD edition distributed by any of our publishing partners. We will contact the winners by e-mail on Monday, and also make the results public here on the blog, with a YouTube movie of the best performance.

Please note that due to the need to restart the database for an update during the release of the patch, the official website and game services may become temporarily inaccessible shortly after this announcement.

Note to current beta testers of Scania TDS: sorry guys and gals, your results will not be considered, you could have trained on this challenge for too long already to master it ahead of anybody else. You may happen to deserve a free ETS2 copy by some other means eventually anyway ;-).

  5. I don't really think I will be competing. Just against myself, I suppose. And I don't have that much time to try to do it again and again to get the better result. Well, in the real life you don't have a restart button to click it, every time you hit someone's Range Rover. Anyway, good luck to everyone.

    2. It is no joke they are fucking cheaters. Here is how. Open config and change uset g_developer "0" to uset g_developer "1". Start game, go to challenge, press 0 and move the cam to near the finish line and press F9. The truck will now be positioned right by the finish line, all they do then is wait for the timer to go to a time which SCS believe is possible, but in truth is really not possible and then drive the truck over the finish line, challenge complete. This is why I will never create an online account or bother trying to do this challenge as quickly as I can, because however many time you do it you will never beat a cheater, and SCS will hand out a free copy of ETS2 to the biggest one. Suckers.

      What about the replays, which all look different that you can download for the top 10 fastest times to view in the game, start the game click on the relevant dangerous drive, it will show the top 10 fastest time and to the right of the user name is a play button which will download their replay to your PC for you to view.

      What about g_developer "1" needing g_console "1" which itself forces off-line play ONLY.

      Go and talk your twaddle elsewhere.

      Delete
    4. Oh, and what about ONLY being able to use the g_developer "1" to move the cam with an off-line ONLY profile, cam move IS disabled for an online profile.

    5. It's possible but highly unlikely to happen. Those first few recordings almost look as if they were on railroad tracks...I tried it and got under 1:30 but still were crashing things a lot.

    8. What a load of muppets. If people can hack the game then of course they are going to be able to find a way to cheat to get the best time. Just like people use hacks in on-line shoot em ups hacks will be used in this game as well and any one who thinks other wise is deluded.

    9. if you mod or hack the game. the game automattilcy disables all online features

      Delete
    10. Well if you use memory hack to stop the clock then you might get there. Don't know how the replay would tackle it. Will it make the truck drive faster to get there in time or will it show that the clock stops in the replay. Will we know?

      Delete
    11. @Michael yeah right, just like last night when I played COD MW3 on-line and was killed along with the rest of my team by a player who openly admitted to using a wall hack and auto aim which is supposed to be blocked online. What ever the developers do the hacker will always be one step in front. SCS should have spent the money they wasted on setting up these stupid time trials and leagues and used it for a multi-player option. I would much prefer to be able to drive my truck along side another player or see the other trucks on the road knowing that they were real people rather than silly ai. And what does I can do this in x number of seconds/minutes prove ? You are a better truck driver than anyone else, bullshit. Just proves in a real truck you would be the worst kind of truck driver possible. SCS should be promoting safe careful driving, instead they want you to go as fast as possible. Well done SCS are there not enough death on roads all over Europe, mainly caused by speed ?

      Delete
    12. have you ever tried to place a mod in the game or change the config file, the game says you have mods installed and/or changed the config file and that you are placed in offline mode. oh and why do you even compare COD to one of scs's games. that makes no sence at all. and about multiplayer: ITS HARDER TO MAKE THEN YOU THINK. and other players are just going to crash into you.

    13. You cannot cheat or hack the game if you do you will be banned from entering the competition.

    15. I think SCS, great game developers know more them some "anonymous" guy.

      Delete
    16. I can not see why the reference to COD makes no sense, but so you understand here is why. If a billion dollar companies like Infinity Ward and Activision can not stop hackers hacking there games, then what makes you thing SCS can stop hackers, hacking there's ? COD has a system in place that is supposed to stop hackers playing on-line matches with hacks. The hackers get around this by making these hacks look like original files from the game, so the on-line security system does not realize that they are using hacks. So what is to stop a hacker doing this to the on-line part of STDS ? Sorry I am being stupid here, This is SCS the greatest software developer in the world, with billions of dollars and the greatest security system known to man. Who's security system is so good that it can not be cracked by anyone. Which is why STDS along with ETS, GTS, UKTS is available for free to anyone who owns a computer and an internet connection. For reference I hate hackers and all the people who download hacked material, but I am not that stupid to think that any game or software developer is able to stop there games being hacked on-line or off-line. So Michael you believe what you like and continue to be fooled that if you use a mod while using the SCS on-line function the SCS security feature will not allow you to play. While the majority of us realize that like every other game the SCS security feature can be fooled, just like you Michael.

    17. FPS games like COD/MW, normally your firing bullets shooting people or getting shot yourself, being able to fire more bullets, with more power/damage & giving yourself a higher damage threshold & being able to look through walls or auto aim makes up for lack of skill and is hard to spot by other people unless absurd values are used like 1 shot from a .22 pistol being able to take out a tank or APC.

      Come to STDS, driving through walls/objects, being able to seemingly reverse faster or other things to get into the top places will show up on the replays anyone can download for the top 7 places from within their own copy of STDS, on the other hand if you can drive faster as you have added extra power and changed the gear ratios you still need an element of skill as there is no “auto drive” function to invoke which would be the equivalent of invoking auto aim and being able to look through walls is rather pointless as everything will be where it was the last time you played it.

      It’s just more that it is unlikely as there is NO direct person on person element like FPS or car racing games on-line.

  14. scs please fix the game menu screen.. before the patch my graphics card temp was only 60°C (i monitor it allways), now after the patch it goes 70-75°C and riseing.. i alt+f4 the game becouse i didnt want to now if my card is going to blow!

    5. Calm down, it’s slightly faked! they are both SCS trailers, the drawbar trailer shipped with STDS but seemingly has nothing to connect to in the game that I have so far found, so for the purpose of taking a picture I backed up the other trailer to it then dropped it off, thus making it look like there were 2 trailers being picked up as an example.

      It does make me wander if SCS ever intended to have drawbar combinations (ridged truck + drawbar trailer) as the drawbar trailer is more than a static object, as the AI will tow it in a nose-up fashion connected to the 5th wheel as “traffic” and its wheels turn etc, so it may have been for AI drawbar combinations so the roads would have other types of truck traffic on them, I suppose only SCS know.

      i.e. they cannot go where they like when they like or on any road they want, they have to stick to predefined routes.

  22. I have sent a mail to SCS Software, regarding ETS 2.
    When you like the things I suggest, please reply +1 so SCS knows they have to take it seriously.
    The mail was this:

    Dear SCS team,

    Your games are very nice, that's something I need to say at first.
    You are the only company that delivers great truck simulation games.
    I'm really looking forward to the release of Euro Truck Simulator 2, hopefully in September.

    When I saw the gameplay footage from Excalibur, I noticed a few unrealistic things, apart from the couple noticed below the video.
    If you want to let ETS2 rock, those little details should really be fixed (in my opinion).

    The things I noticed were:

    - You placed a sign "Ausfahrt" at a wrong spot. Those signs (including "Uit" for NL and all other countries) are only placed when you leave the highway
    In the video, the truck took a exit, but that exit went to another highway, so a sign was not supposed to stand there.
    This is something that I also noticed in ETS 1.
    - The lanes on the highway are also too short, so you cant really be accelerating before inserting.
    - The lanes also don't feature a different kind of striping like in real life
    The lanes should feature square striping, please take a look at this picture http://www.roadpics.net/nl/A27/A27Z/24.jpg
    - The AI traffic does not take the curves very smooth, but this maybe WIP, because it's only a beta.

    There are also a couple of things, regarding the trucks, wich can't be implemented in the release version, but could come as an update or even DLC:

    - Trucks don't only come with a trailer, but most trucks are the so called combo trucks.
    These trucks are a long requested feature, but are only available with mods yet.
    It should not be very hard to make this, because you can still use the same cabins as the standalone trucks.
    A very old game, Hard Truck II, from 2002, already featured combo trucks together with trailer trucks.
    - There are only trailers with 3 axes in all your games, but most trailers only have 2 or even 1 axle.
    - More variety in trucks. I really like the Renault Premium, but there should also be a smaller model from Mercedes and Scania.

    When you implement these few things, there is also more variety of AI trucks on the road.
    Because you can make them available as affordable DLC, you are also making money with the new assets.
    In my opinion, realising this part is just as important as making new parts of the map.
    A bigger map is only cool if we can drive on them with a bigger, more realistic truck fleet.

    Can you please respond to this mail, SCS software? It took me a while to support you with this mail, so I would really like some feedback.
    I did mail my suggestions to you, instead of posting them on your blog, because I really wanted to make sure you read it.
    I hope you like my suggestions, I would really like to help you making your game is the best available till yet.

    Kind regards,
    Sander Schenk

    1. You're wrong. Nearly all european trailers has 3 axes. I've never seen a 1 axed trailer in my whole life, i think.

    4. Yes, you're right, this requires some research, but really would make the game better, I guess.
      Thanks for the feedback

      Delete
    5. the trouble with drawbar trailers is they are normally owned by a specific company who only use them with their own vehicles, so would only really work with AI as traffic, simply because very few company’s tow other company’s drawbar trailer as there is little standardisation in coupling height or drawbar length, even the towing eyes come in many size and types e.g. 40mm & 50mm DIN, 40mm Swiss, 57mm(AKA: Swedish), 76mm NATO, 80mm ball, as the type depends on the towing vehicle weight vs. trailer weight, towing eye nose load, body length vs. drawbar length thus dynamic loading (Dc, D, V & S, etc, etc) which have to be calculated.

      On the other hand most semi-trailers use 2” (50.8mm) kingpin, the only other available option is the 3.5” (88.9mm) kingpin which is almost exclusively used for heavy haulage (given B-trains & triples can use 2” kingpin) or the 110mm ball (off-road use) so everything is much more standardised in couplings and dimensions etc, which allows most normal tractor units to tow most normal semi-trailers hence the amount of trucks that tow other peoples semi-trailers.

      Trucks with drawbar trailers would only really work in ETS2 for player use if they could be loaded or unloaded (i.e. empty) or if swap-bodies were used, but then you would be limited to specific types of work.

      This is something that I also noticed in ETS 1."

      that's not right. When you drive on a German highway, you will find an "Ausfahrt"-sign also when you leave a highway on an exit to another highway... It's not everywhere but they place the sign on some places...

      Delete

  28. Many demands more cars, trailers, trucks, bigger map, larger view area and more object and so on.. You all forget that all this require bigger PC to run the game. SCS could easy give you all this, but then only few would then be able to play.
    Fewer would then buy it and in long term, the game would not exist. Please stop demanding and look forward to the best truck sim ever made, no matter what we think missing.

  29. One thing there must be changed in ETS2, that is i can't stall with my Thrustmaster RGT Pro Clutch...

  30. You can stall with the clutch with a G27 wheel, though I haven’t tried it yet with patch 1.3.0, but with prior patches the clutch felt just like a truck clutch, BTW in real life it’s quite hard to stall a truck in 1st gear in comparison to a car.

  31. Am I the only one who'd prefer the 'Look Left/Right' buttons work so that as long as you keep the particular button depressed you're looking in that direction and when you release it your view would return to forward view (common in many racing games eg. Live For Speed). I'd find it particularly convenient in intersection where you could just quickly check if anyone's coming instead of slowly panning your head around the cockpit.

    Of course that would interfere with the looking out the window option. But maybe a separate keys for 'quick look' or something.

    2. Exactly. There isn't anything 'unrealistic' about turning your head quickly. I do it all the time when driving in real life. Also, the aforementioned LFS is a racing simulator and turning your head quickly and holding it there by keeping a button depressed doesn't hinder it's realism a bit.

      And just for the sake of clarification for whom it may concern, I didn't mean that the POV would just magially shift 90 degrees left of right when the button is pressed. What I meant is when you look either side the POV moves faster than the basic look around. I dunno, some 60 degrees or so just enough to see out the side windows and see the right side mirrors, and remains there until you release the button.

      Personally I find the current way of looking rather cumbersome, especially when you're negotiating a tight turn and want to see how close a fence, container or whatever object is. I also seldom use the fixed side-view mirrors so quickly glancing over to the right to see what's going on in there would be more than great.

    3. You can use the keys on the numeric block to rotate the view to several predefined positions.

    4. As i use a wheel & H-shifter I use mouse-look, as it’s much easier than the cumbersome slue buttons even if you map them to the extra buttons on the wheel & H-shifter.

      In the end I got rid of the normal slue look buttons and replaced them with the snap view mappings the same as the keyboard keypad uses for ~45deg view left/right, though I still mostly mouse-look but extra buttons for snap view are good for when changing gear.

    5. Ah, I wasn't aware of the numpad buttons. Thanks for the heads up! I mapped the corresponding numpad buttons to my wheel replacing the normal look buttons and it's definitely an improvement. Although I still need to reset my POV with yet another button but it's way better nonetheless.

      I have the H-shifter as well but due to my current setup on the table I have to keep my mouse behind the shifter making it's use rather unconvenient. But that is merely a matter of rearrangement.

    6. If you have a G27, on the H-shifter you have the D-pad, you can map keys to the D-pad so e.g. look ~90deg left/right snap view use the left/right of the D-pad, then D-pad up can be used as look-reset OR “inside view cam” which dose the same job but with the added bonus is will switch from any cam view that’s outside while the look keys on your wheel do ~45deg snap-views

      So between the permutations and given you may have one hand on the H-shifter it’s a mere formality to snap-view and view-reset/internal cam.

    7. It is G27 indeed. I mapped the 90deg-left to the top left button on the wheel and 45deg (or so)-right to the top right button and straight ahead to the mid right. Seems to be working quite well for my intersection surroundings check after a quick test run.

      That D-pad configuration sounds pretty nice as well. I might try that when and if I get around to mount the shifter some place lower than my desk, and the wheel. It's currently a tad too high to naturally rest my hand on it thus making it difficult, if not impossible, to reach the D-pad. Or maybe I'd just need bigger hands.

    3. I somehow don’t think we will get the map tonight, it could be sometime this coming week or the week after etc, I don’t think their statement “For the next patch, the one we are preparing only after this competition is over” implied tonight or even Monday daytime, so should be treated as a none specific “after” rather than one that implies immediacy. – though I would be happy if I was wrong lol

  42. SCS will it be possible to make the game ask me if I wanna use the mods in mod folder or act as the mod folder is empty.
    This would be nice so I don't have to delete all mods each time I wanna play online and copy them in again when I wanna use them offline. A simple question when I start the game.
    Do u wanna play online or offline. If I select ONLINE then the game will not use the mods... That would be nice...
