Bratislava to Birmingham

We would like to point you to another time-lapse Euro Truck Simulator 2 video depicting a cargo delivery, created by one of our hard-working beta testers. The video is a bit grainy due to high compression rate, but quite cool nonetheless.



Meanwhile, ETS2 Steam Greenlight campaign continues. Don't worry, we are not really adding any zombies ;-)

      Hey SCS,

      1) I noticed on the video that the guy who recorded it used full lights when there was incoming traffic. In real life, using full lights when there is incoming traffic could end up in getting a warning/ticket.

      2) And in some countries, cars have to have lights on during the day too. (It's like this in Estonia, at least).

      3) I hope the horn from German Truck Simulator comes back to the series, it was really good. Too bad STDS had the old horn.

      Thanks. I've also e-mailed you guys some small suggestions(not as obscure as I've seen in replies here, on the blog).

    4. Um, i don't know whether u guys have tried European Bus simulator 2012 but it did have two very realistic feature n that was the tachograph which records every thing a truck driver does including if he was speeding or if he has avoided taking rests,etc and all of the previous scs games have had them but with no functionality, is this like some thing that scs software gonna implement on in ets2 or??

      Secondly, the graphics and weather, i mean if rains, some vapor inform of fog builds up on the mirror and you have to turn on some heat on the windscreen in order to see what´s ahead of you, just speculating on this because all the videos have seen so far seems not to have this feature neither.

      And lastly, where are the dirt effects and snow, not to forget to mention reparation and other services such as changing tires and oil after driving long distances as it was in rig n roll 3. I thought u guys postponed the game from march all the way to 4th quarter of 2012 so u can have the time to make the game as realistic as possible and I as being your number fan has been patient enough with every excuses you have come up with so far, so please, don´t disappoint me as your nr.one big scs software fan and the rest of the other millions of girls n boys out there with the final results....

    5. Chris, seriously? you're 'expecting' this much from a small team not even a tenth the size of the team that made GTA4 and THEY couldn't even do all this?

      I don't know about the rest of you, but I just want to drive around and maybe make belief for a few hours that this is my life and my truck.

      Sure, I'd love all those features, and I'd expect them from a 150 man strong team, but not from SCS, at least not for another 5-10 iterations.

      You want those features sooner, start learning about programming, 3d art design, sound design, and just do it...

    6. It's taken 30 man years to make the game, and you're still not happy? You're not their number 1 fan, I've not said anything stupid to SCS once, and even I don't think I'm their number 1 fan. Probably in the top 50. You get some hard core fans out there ;)

      They've delayed it for a longer BETA stage, so if you want the game now, don't be surprised if you fall off the map whenever you enter certain places or you get tired every 30 seconds. Then you'd complain.

      But if they delay it, you'd complain it took them ages to make. You can't let SCS win, can you?

    7. Good to see that everyone talking abaut doubles in these replys...

      Delete
    8. True they are very silent about doubles, 1 post and then they stopped about it, so I fear it won't be in the game..


      Same as some info for the editor, we have gotten 0 info or statements about the map editor, mod tools, etc for this game. It's that what keeps their games alive, so they could so some support for it at least.

      And last, I could do this with a 2 man team: http://www.trucksimsforum.de/viewtopic.php?f=181&t=14385

      So you think scs who are professinals can't do these things (placing and skinning signs ?)

      Its those small things who require least effort that make a game realistic or not. Check Omsi; Grphics from the stone age, but such detailed bus and signs on the road, it is more realistic than all of scs games combined (and yes Omsi has been developed by 2 students)

    9. First, that talk about doubles has be done to death already, just like the open-able windows and release dates, it's past the joke state and the annoying state, now it's just in the sad state...

      And secondly, I'm making a game with my bro, and am thoroughly impressed by the sheer depth and attention to details we're putting in there. That said, thinking back I remember when UFO enemy unknown came out, and hearing it was made by two brothers, I'm starting to understand something. maybe it's easier for ppl that live together to do focused work, where as it's a completely different ball game when you have to manage employees, that each have their own ideas and values. At least to me, it sounds like this might make a huge difference.

      So given the size of the game world they're making for us, and the number of trucks and possible variations with customization and all, not to mention the ability to manage a small company in game, I think it's fair to say they're giving us their A game.

      On a personal note, I'm still worried about that level restriction on gear and trucks, as if cash wasn't enough. And also would like to know if you can set the speed of the auto-centering feature for the wheel for when playing with keyboard. But...But, you don't see me whine about these things in every blog posts, I mentioned it once (well twice now...duh) and that's it. They see it, they don't, it's not an issue, I'll see when the game comes, if it's not 100% to my liking, then big deal, what is...like ever...

      In STDS is possible to change auto-center speed in config and controls.sii,but in ETS2 would be great that can be change in the options,for keyboard players.

      I personally prefer slower auto-center when driving at high speed and faster a-c at slower speeds,in STDS I somehow managed to adjust and is much smoother and easier to steer with keyboard.With vanilla steering config I was little bit disappointed because the truck turning is too rough.

      Your Wrong, the landscape is very nice. When the truck droved into Germany, there was a lot of trees around and also like the motorway at night, looks very realistic.

      Landscape is good in ETS2 no need to change anything.

    5. @jasmin: Thanks. Been driving these games for years, trying to keep it real. I can't really say much about licensed trucks, partly because it is not my place to do so, partly because, as mentioned here in the blog, they will keep trying until the last moment (and possibly beyond for all I know). Hopefully manufacturers will realise this only heightens brand awareness. (c:

      Had to rewatch it to see that track-ir was used, hehe, didn't notice the wheel becoming more and more visible as your head must be getting more and more heavy from the time spent driving. :P

    2. I think that it might add a little more realism, but for ETS2, it's completely pointless. Now, somewhere down the line, I wouldn't complain if windows would open, but for now, it's a waste of development.

      Delete
    3. Really? There are lot of things missing from real life and you suggest for openable windows?

      -How about random act of aggressive drivers?

      -Dollys need to be down after unhooking a trailer

      -Bugs in the windshield are lacking

      -More realistic trailer hooking with dollys

      -Random flat tires

      -Random mechanical problems that result in tardiness

      -Real inspection of the truck and trailer

      -A real analog log book

      -weight scale with random inspection

      But nooo, lets go for windows in the cab, because it is more "realistic".

      I dont hope to get all those things up.. but comon... windows? out of REAL things?

    4. He never said anything about realism you stupid fuck. Just another douche on the internet bashing other people's comments to feel better about himself. If that wouldn't be the case, you wouldn't be pulling words out of your ass and present them as something someone else said.

      What a joke. I'd like to be able to open the window a lot more than any of that unnecessary shit you just listed. Bugs in the windshield? Really? You suggest that and bash someone who suggested openable windows. Holy shit you are stupid.

    5. I hope so much they will delay the game til next year, just because of your greedy bloody openable windows wish , we hear it everytime in every damn blog, but what mr. AnonymousSeptember 4, 2012 1:38 AM suggested sounds 100 times better having in a simulator, and Wow Sir you really lack realism, if you really prefer openable windows, then all the other features op posted, so to me it seems you are the dumb fuck, Well in that case, let's just hope they will delay the game for at least another 2 months, just so they can satisfy you too, i wouldn't mind honestly.

    6. @AnonymousSeptember 4, 2012 11:05 AM

      You'd vote on openable windows compare to all of the real things I mentioned? You sir are a genius!

      Yes, bugs can sounds irrelevant to truck driving industries, but when you pass in a humid zone filled with bugs, it can be messy on the windshield. You probably took a drive in your mom's car many times and never see a single bug in her windshield, but get this, its all about wind resistance.

      You want more realism in this game? How about a manual transmission operable with the mouse and double clutch system (in this case, lets say shift is the clutch). I bet you couldnt play that game for less than 2 minutes and be pissed about it!

      There are thing way more important in this game that could be add BEFORE your stupid litle openable windows. Even truck drivers dont open those windows, the sound from the wind resistance of the truck on the highway is so too loud. It lacks interest to be even added up on this game.

      Again you are pulling stuff out of your ass. I have never claimed that I would want it for realism and either did the guy who suggested openable windows in the first place. Just shows what a jackass you are. Maybe you got valid points about those features, but it doesn't matter, because your brains are the size of a pea and can't comprehend what your eyes are reading.

      And talking about moms, yours probably said you were the center of the earth and the best part is that you believed it.

      You are so funny, you make it look like I'm talking to 3 different anonymous, when infact I'm talking to the same person. I do not care if the guy mentioned realism or not, if you read ALL the threads in all the SCS blogs, you would notice that openable windows as been brought more than once. I actually have not read ALL the messages that people left. But I have seen the window BS so many time that it was time to piss off the guy who did. And obviously, it worked, so my work here is done. And what ever you say after, I will probably troll you again and again and again, because I have nothing else to do.

      So please, keep pulling stuff out of your ass to make my time easier!

      pfft. you're nothing then a sad piece of lying trash, openable windows goes for the realism too, that's why the other fools mentioned it in the first place. Why the hell would u want it otherwise. Oh let me guess because you expect you can bloody smoke in the game too? and then you want the opportunity to open the damned windows.. you can't even admit it can you, cause you like to play mr. smart guy. Now do you self a good favor and apologize for calling him a dumb fuck, you started this war, now get what's coming to you, that dude only shared his opinion and u just had to be rude, cause ungrateful shitheads like you, can't agree on others suggestions, well that's very mature of you, and now he's trolling the shit out of you.. something that was unnecessary in the beginning.

    3. I don't exactly like the idea of a traffic jam. Sure, it would sound realistic, but if you guys ever drive a car on your own, it is very unpleasant to sit in a traffic jam especially when you are the driver. Happened to me lots of times and it is always a huge pain in the ass. I wouldn't want that to happen in the game too.

      Some areas with more traffic (which would then slow the traffic's pace a bit) would be great, but not the ones where you move one meter a minute.

      Delete
    4. I do thats a good idea.

      Delete
    5. I don't really want traffic jams. But heavy traffic where the speed may become limited to around 20mph on a motorway during peek times would add a more realism, without the tedium of sitting in stationary tailbacks.

      It would also make you more mindful of when you accept the harder deliveries. Though for that to really work, there would need to be more smaller roads as alternate routes, let it play into the risk-reward. Do you risk a 4pm 2hr delivery window down the M62 in rush hour, or take a longer route on single lane roads that would be quieter?

Same if you drive 51 km/h for just 2 seconds and you will have a bill on your ass. But now in ETS2, driving 2 hours and your have drivin only to pay your punishments. Will be a disappointment in fun and your pocket in ETS2.

Why haven't any of the major gaming sites picked up on this? Someone like Rock Paper Shotgun should do a story, preview or something on ETS 2. They really should.

      I would like it to be dynamic, as in heavier density at specific times/days, eg: before the start of the business day in cities, Friday evenings, around festival days (would be different for different regions/cities). Maybe, that is too complex.

  35. Nice video, TruckerGal. Thanks!

    General observation - Most of the other trucks are too slow and they go past in a blur. Would like to see trucks maintain similar speeds. In the one instance where the truck maintains a similar speed (2:44), it remains for around 15 seconds (~110 minutes gametime - not bad), then suddenly takes off.

    Similarly, didn't see other vehicles maintaining the same pace as the trucks. Some cars go past fast, not all.

    Unrelated - In STDS, cars overtake you (the truck) wonderfully on a two-way road. Also, they flash lights to signal you (the truck) when you're trying to get into a main road (and waiting for you to complete the turn).
    Nice touches, just noticed them.

    1. Well, like in real life you'll never catch those keeping same speed... (c:

      As for that truck taking off, he had a box trailer, I had a tanker trailer and a feeble little engine. I blew past him at the fuel station, though. (c; Beyond that I can't really say.

      Cars do overtake on a two lane road too, but only if they are a clear shot -- mostly. Some cars overtake slower, others fly by so fast they'd lose their licence if caught. dc:

    2. Thanks a lot for taking the time to respond, TruckerGal.

      Just to be clear, the comments were for SCS and were not on your driving style. :-)

      I like the explanation for the truck speeds with respect to their trailer sizes, just that it was a little too abrupt (considering I couldn't notice any traffic ahead of it all the while).

      In real life, based on my observation (US), you observe different groups of vehicles maintaining similar speeds, and their momentum is usually broken by tolls, exits, splits/merges, traffic (or a sudden road rage).

      Overall, I like how the AI has improved.

  44. PLEASE STOP with this time compression rubbish. It does not give you any idea of what the game/simulator is actually is like. Lets see a video of a smaller distance delivery, lets hear the sounds of the trucks, not this crappy music that you continue to use. Are the truck sounds so bad that you have to use this crappy music to cover it up ? We all know the scenery is good, but what about other things. How can we see if there is a change in how the AI act, if the only time you see them they are going so fast ? And most importantly when is the bloody release date ? How much longer can you keep holding the released date back ? Not giving a release date is just plain stupid, you keep telling us you are a small team, and only have limited resources, but for some reason you do not want to release it ! Surely you want a return on all this work, so why not release now ? Are there that many bugs ? However long you wait there will be a few bugs slip through the net, so release now and then do what every other game developer does and fix with patches as an when bugs are found.

      "Extreme Trucker 2 is a project commissioned by ValuSoft. While SCS is the developer, we do not decide on the features and we do not own the resulting product; it belongs to the game's publisher - the game is created on order and budget provided by ValuSoft."

  59. You did a nice job on imrpoving graphics, AI, lightning, trailers, traffic,signs (however you could still do some effort on this one)

    But you forgot your old prefabs scs..

    Those highway exits are soo USA and totally not EU (going from 2 to 1 lane and then back to 2) In europe we have an extra lane for exits and entrances at the highway
    Scs you should totally take a look at this and finally make some decent updated prefabs or at least a prefab editor like the one the russians have made...

    This is how EU roads should look like

    http://www.trucksimsforum.de/viewtopic.php?f=181&t=14385

    If, I as an amateur modder, can do things like these, you should be able to do it aswell scs.

    I am not saying you should delay ETS2 further and I know you can't do it all, but perhaps some ideas for your updates or patches.

    I am mostly buying this game to mod it, I hope you have made it mod friendly again (still no info about map editor etc ??).

    1. The approximate 'real' time it takes between the countries:

      The video is 7.25 minutes long (without intros) -> 7.25x16 = 116 Minutes (Less than 2 Hours)

      16 = Scale

      }
      0:15 - Start (Slovakia)
      0:38 - Czech Republic
      2:20 - Germany
      4:32 - Belgium
      5:10 - France
      5:52 - England
      7:40 - Destination Reached
      }

      0.38(Czech Republic) - 0.15(Slovakia) = 23 Seconds x16 = 4.08
      [4 Minutes 8 Seconds from Slovakia to Czech Republic]

      2.20(Germany) - 0.38(Czech Republic) = 1.42 Minutes x16 = 23.12
      [23 Minutes 12 Seconds from Czech Republic to Germany]

      4:32(Belgium) - 2.20(Germany) = 2.12 Minutes x16 = 34.32
      [34 Minutes 32 Seconds from Germany to Belgium]

      5.10(France) - 4:32(Belgium) = 38 Seconds x16 = 7.2
      [7 Minutes 20 Seconds from Belgium to France]

      5.52(England) - 5.10(France) = 42 Seconds x16 = 7.12
      [7 Minutes 12 Seconds from France to England]

      7.40(Dest.) - 5.52(England) = 1.48 Minutes x16 = 24.08
      [24 Minutes 8 Seconds from England to Destination]

      4.08 = Slovakia -> Czech Republic
      23.12 = Czech Republic -> Germany
      34.32 = Germany -> Belgium
      7.2 = Belgium -> France
      7.12 = France -> England
      24.08 = England -> Destination
      --------
      101.32 Minutes from Bratislava to Birmingham. (1 Hour 40 minutes)

      I might be wrong, but it's just my calculation ;)

      Delete
    2. Yeah, it's wrong, because you can't handle with sexagesimal numbers as they were decimal. For example, if video without intro and outro is 7 minutes and 25 seconds long, you can't say it's 7.25 minutes long. In fact is 7.42 minutes long. You know... 30 seconds are not 0.3 of minute, but 0.5 of minute. ;-)

      But let's say the time is really compressed 16x, although we don't know it, you are probably right and it makes sense. So here we go:

      country|start|end|compressed_time|real_time
      -------------------------------------------
      SK|0:00:15|0:00:38|0:00:23|0:06:08
      CZ|0:00:38|0:02:20|0:01:42|0:27:12
      D|0:02:20|0:04:32|0:02:12|0:35:12
      B|0:04:32|0:05:10|0:00:38|0:10:08
      F|0:05:10|0:05:52|0:00:42|0:11:12
      GB|0:05:52|0:07:40|0:01:48|0:28:48
      -------------------------------------------
      Total|0:00:15|0:07:40|0:07:25|1:58:40

      So 1 hour and 58 minutes (and 40 seconds) from Bratislava to Birmingham. :-)

      Delete
    3. Oh yea I see where I've done it wrong, thanks for helping me out.

      23 x 16 = 368 <- I've taken away 8 so it rounds up to 60 and made it 4.08 what a mistake :).

    1. You guys are forgetting that there are compulsory rest periods, you can only drive a set number of hours per day between rest periods.

      Trucks are mostly limited to 90kph which they can only do on some roads like motorways.

      Assuming you could somehow keep 90kph without ever deviating below that speed 1798km would be as near as dam it 20 hours (19.97h) of just driving plus at least one rest period.

      Really you would be lucky to average ~70 to ~75kph across minor & major roads which is as near a dam it 24 hours driving at 75kph average or ~25.7 hours at 70kph average, which assuming you started the journey at the start of a working day would be 2 rest periods.

    1. SCS I see there is an error with the timing for the euro tunnel journey, its ~35mins, but in the video departure was ~19:11h and arrival was at ~19:16h, which is just 5 min’s or 30min’s to fast [not using time-zones]

      Or if using time-zones:

      It’s 30min to slow – i.e. if departing France at ~19:11h CEST arrival in the UK would be 18:46h BST [19:46h CEST] + 30mins error = 19:16h BST [20:16h CEST]

      If you email an NDA for me to sign and return, I will quite happily test the game for you and root-out little errors like this and report them ;) lol

    3. Just remember if you adjust this little error as you call it, there is many other thing to think about. The time to latest deliver should be less, the time to arrivel should be less. The time to when you need to sleep should be less, and if everything should be right, you should be 35 min less sleepy. So a little error is now a huge error that will not be corrected before release.

    4. Anonymous - September 4, 2012 9:55 PM:

      It says quite clearly at 5:50 in the video that it should take 35mins which is comparable to real life times for the journey, that means the ETS2 clock should change by 35mins given you are warped from e.g. France to the UK or vice versa, there really should be NO fundamental problem with reflecting the journey time of 35mins given you are “warped” from one place to the other, if they can add 5mins to the ETS2 clock then they can add 35mins to the ETS2 clock instead.

      Now I seem to recall there are also ferries in ETS2 perhaps they also take just 5mins on the ETS2 clock? but e.g. Amsterdam (IJmuiden) to Newcastle UK ferry time is ~16 ½ hours (the only regular ferry service out of Ijmuiden to the UK in real life) – FYI: in real life on long ferry crossings you can take your compulsory rest period “if you have a cabin”, so you can leave the ferry with a FULL driving day ahead.

      If there is a problem that all/most delivery journeys from the UK to Europe (or vice versa) get broken because you cannot make them in time then that’s a fundamental problem with the time that has been allotted for delivery journey and NOT a fundamental problem with reflecting the correct expected “time” for the allotted rail or ferry service on the ETS2 clock.

    On this screnshot is visible that the truck have "diagnostics",I wonder if will be only damage diagnostic like in ETS,GTS or it can be ablebe to wear truck parts such as engine,tires,brakes,suspension and their impact on driving performance.Eg realistic engine overheating,worn-out tires causes more slipping,excessively braking causes the faster brakes wasting so that we more prefer a engine brake,after all that we must carefully manage with truck and service vehicle parts with time if want to safely deliver cargo on time.

    Frankly,I do not expect all this possibilities directly in upcoming game,but if the sale was good it would not be bad to try add these possibilities later in the game,I think this would make even more realistic and interesting gameplay.

    Sorry for my english.

    -----------------

    It should be cool to hire 1 or more engineers into your company which will help you out when you or your hired drivers are having problems with the truck on the way to destiny or just at the company itself. He has his own service caddy to drive to you and help you getting back on the road ASAP. The more skills the engineer have the faster he is able to fix your truck but also it will cost more in price of course. All truck parts he needs to use will cost you as well just like real life.

    Beside of this, it would be cool to see random tower trucks with a truck hanging behind them. Just suggestions for ETS3 someday :)

    Valve’s indie game voting system Greenlight has received hundreds of submissions from developers since its launch on August 30, but users eager to vote for games they’d like to see added to Steam’s catalog were also confronted, perhaps not too surprisingly, with fake and/or offensive entries from pranksters. As a result, Valve has updated its terms and now requires a $100 fee in order to submit a game to Greenlight (the fee is not retroactive, so anyone who submitted a game for consideration before the fee was implemented won’t have to pay it). In another bid to reduce the “noise and clutter” from Greenlight, the queue window of unrated games has shrunk to just a dozen.
    Valve also stated that it will donate the collected fees to Child’s Play, a charity that brings toys, consoles, and games to children in hospitals around the world. “We have no interest in making money from this, but we do need to cut down noise in the system,” UI Designer Alden Kroll said in a separate post.
    Steam’s community, though supportive of the update, carries just enough healthy divisiveness for discussion. “I guess I’d rather submit a game to Desura or sell it through the Humble Store before taking the risk of paying $100 so a group of trolls can downvote my game and it doesn’t even make it on Steam,” one comment states.
    “This is a really good change,” another poster says. “$100 seems a little high to me, but any developer completely serious about getting their games onto Steam should be able to pay it. Greenlight isn’t the place for mods or freeware games anyway.”

  84. Excalibur Publishing changed the release date of ETS2 from 28.09.12 to 19.10.12 http://www.contactsales.co.uk/EXCALIBUR_PRODUCT_LIST.htm
    That means SCS has more time to fool people around and make more jokes about zombies. Who's laughing now?
