Development update

We owe you an update on some things happening now which are already frequently discussed in comments.

Truck brand licensing situation is clearing up, and we don't have just good news. Despite years of trying to approach truck and trailer manufacturers, and in some case very extensive negotiations, we are far from securing all major truck brands. For a long time, we have been showing you in-development screenshots and movies with proper branding. It was a part of our negotiation strategy: to show truck manufacturers how public - our fans - react to real brands in our games. Fans' reaction has been without exception always positive, people are excited about driving "real" trucks - but even that is not strong enough argument it seems. As you may have seen in recent movies and screenshots from the game finding their way on the Internet, we are now in the process of switching back to "Majestic" and "Valiant." The destiny of another major brand still hangs in the balance - after two years of discussions, there are only precious few days to see if the negotiations are concluded successfully at the last minute.




 Steam Greenlight situation is tough, too. We have been giving a good fight, but recently it looks like our little campaign for our fans to vote on Steam is losing steam a bit. It's not a lost cause yet, but our chances of making it into Top 10 anytime soon are not too high. In fact recently the number of votes for ETS2 seems to be slipping compared to the average votes of Top 100 games in the rankings. Here is a screen-grab from current Greenlight statistics available for developers.


We are not losing faith that Euro Truck Simulator 2 can still win your hearts even without all brands covered. The release of the game is only a new beginning, with any luck will be able to boast about good sales numbers, so we may have better arguments to persuade brand owners to join in. We are going to support the game long term with updates, fixes, and improvements, there are exciting things planned beyond initial release.

If you are eager to see some more moving pictures from ETS2, we have created a new Playlist on our YouTube channel with a collection of movies coming out of beta testing. There are 8 videos in it at the moment, but it looks like there are going to be hours of in-game footage there eventually:

    3. You have problem with that ??? I'm from Poland too.
      Imho people who are responsible for giving licenses in Volvo and Mercedes should gtfo from work :/. Games are the best places to show products. ETS2 could be the best commercial for brands. Young players will be able to see things that they might not know. Imagine for example 15 year old fan of truck. Lets say that he's not fan of Mercedes or Scania. After few hours spend in game he might become fan of Mercedes or Scania. Why? Because there's no better way to meet truck (except real life xD). That's all. I hope that people in Volvo and Mercedes will think same as me about development of their trucks.

    6. Artur Nowak, you know you should behave more mature, with the age of 15. Don't blame ScS because manufactures reject their offer.. it's their big loss, and it's very expensive to get license from those brands.

      Delete
  2. No worries ScS, i don't think the game will collapse because of few original brands are missing , we still know how each and every truck looks like cause they are all different. I must say i didn't see this coming with the change of brands, but i understand it's necessary. To be honest i don't care to much about brands, i just want the game to be enjoyable. Thanks for your honest explaination, i think lots of people wanted that cleared of, and keep doing the good job, i look very much forward to ETS 2. cheers :)

    1. SCS, You have done and are doing what is possible, we believe in the potential of ETS 2 and cheered for the major brands of trucks can enchergar that too. As fans of trucks, the original brand makes a great lack in our simulator, but we can not abuse the effort you are making to make it as real as possible. I am also saddened by the lack of original brands, but thank you for all the work during all that time invested in ETS 2, which for me is the best simulator of all. What remains is to settle for the "make believe" and we hope that, even if slowly, SCS get all the necessary permits. I wish you great sales at launch and after launch.
      To finish and avoid ridiculous comments, I am very happy and grateful with all that you did, I'm happy with everything is ready, everything is beautiful to me, ETS 2 is great. I await the release because I dream about it every day!

      SCS THANK YOU!

    1. That's what I think as well, not in those exact words, I only mean the MOD part of your comment to be fair...
      A small mod can change Valiant and Majestic into Volvo and MB, modders don't even have to change the truck itself to make it look realistic, I can't really see what's different from the real trucks.

      Too bad Volvo and Mercedes, you could've had some nice attention due to ETS 2.
      I understand MB though, the game doesn't have their newest truck, oh well, who cares?

      Good job as always SCS, I already pre-ordered anyway! :P

      Delete
    2. I have to agree, with the first part of the first comment and all of the second. This will be the first release of a truck sim game by SCS where I am not getting ready to have to add other trucks models to replace the default models.

      Personally I can not see why Volvo or Mercedes will not allow there logos to be used in this sim. In previous version I can understand it, but from the videos and playing STDS, SCS have made a big improvement on how it feels to drive a truck. Anyway after modding SCS trucking games over the past 6 years, adding the correct branding will not be a problem, and will certainly not stop me buying this simulator.

    2. In Mercedes case, I don't wonder why they took their brand off. Because this game doesn't even have their newest truck. Truck companies are very giant companies so it's easy to understand that they don't want to accept something as small as ~10 people's company's vision about their trucks to represent them. But still I think they are losing valuable marketing value as the same time. Although truck driving simulators are not so popular in mainstream, the people who are willing to buy these are either young people interested in truck driver's career or some older people who doesn't even use internet that much, but would immediately buy this game "to their children" as a christmas present if they knew it excisted. Either way I think the buyers will be the same people who buys real trucks too, so very stupid from truck companies to take their brands off..

    2. Its kinda like the Porsche , so big companies like Polyphony Digital & Grand Turismo in Japan never could achieve Porsche brand being in the game. Electronic Arts got only long long time ago. Instead the name was RUFF and its was the Porsche. I don't mind if I have to make my deliveries with Scania, I've got my impression about Scania & must say Im proud to drive their truck in the game! Nuff said.

    1. Cets, once again, I want to get mad. But I've discovered that you won't listen if I rant on. SCANIA and MAN is likely, Renault has the real logo, but not the real name, but what's that matter?

      It's not SCS's fault. Big companies like EA, about 50x bigger than SCS couldn't get a licence for some cars in their racing games, so really SCS, 50x smaller have done a good job. Modders WILL fix this. I've been talking to the modding community, and huge mods are being planned for ETS 2.

  23. Too bad they do not know how to advertise and there are companies that can as fans claim from their sin. But I think the game can not just about real names Joca trucks who plays games for fun, not for the sake that they do not know what brands of cars or trucks who knows what brands come on now, how many games are market not true with real names or their names on cars? So this game can not be reduced only to the name, I think it's a pretty good game to be quite successful for a long time is also expected. Important that the trucks look just like the reality that not just call and it is nothing, now I think this is an obstacle that the game will not be released, bought and played by fans who are waiting for almost 3 years days. So far scs you my congratulations for your work. Sorry for my English not very good. Can not forget to Romania and make a map. I hope most fans will agree with me.

  25. Brand Management for Dummies: If the truck companies agree to have their brands represented in the game alongside a lot of other real brands, they will, in essence, be competing. None of them will agree to be the lesser brand, and since it's a game it can be difficult for them to control how they are perceived in it. Imagine a bunch of Youtube videos with a [brand name] truck crashing into a traffic jam - how happy is the marketing department going to be about being seen in that situation?

    That being said, I do hope they would come around to letting SCS use their brands. This is, after all, the premiere trucking simulator series in the world. Car brands compete to be able to get as many models as possible in games like Gran Turismo and Forza, the truck manufacturers need to get with the program and realize the potential.

  29. Of course Real Brands means something but, I, for instance, want to play the game. IF real brands are not possible this time, like you said, when the game rolls out, gamers play and such, the game will be more known by most brands, and then they can think over about adding their brands to the game.
    I know that they will do it, in the future!

    1. LOLZ.. thats an EA product.. why are you wondering.. EA big.

      Delete
    2. I'm not wondering and EA is one big...shit

      Delete
    3. Yeah, but that big shit has also a shit load of cash it can invest in something like that. Also the publicity the manufacturers get from an EA game is probably 1000 times bigger than what these truck manufacturers would get from this. Also, I don't think something like having their brand in a trucking simulator would do any good business wise for those truck companies. It's all about that.

      I don't mind about them too much. I want the trucks look good, sound good, drive good and for the game to be good. A little logo on the steering wheel is a very minor thing (although it won't hurt anyone).

  53. Hi developers,

    Maybe you could release an download for an "real logo mod".
    So the mod is good quality and the brand owners can't complain

  55. I like SCS what you did with Volvo and Mercedes look almost real, i was afraid that you will do an ugly badge vor te Volvo, but you managed to crete a beautiful one, i personlay like it.

    I hope Man will still be licenced, because you are talking about it, " The destiny of another major brand still hangs in the balance - after two years of discussions, there are only precious few days to see if the negotiations are concluded successfully at the last minute."

  56. I really hope that Renault give license to SCS. I don't care too much about Merc or Volvo, but I want to drive a real Renault Magnum. Or, for better say, I hope to drive a licensed Renault Magnum. But if SCS don't take the license, I hope that they do it better than GTS. I really don't like the GTS' Magnum cause it's too different from the real one. For now I can only cross my finger.
    Never give up SCS, I'll always support you guys!!!

  57. I don't mind Valiant or Majestic at all. Call them whatever you feel like. It is the sim and truck driver experience I want. This will be a great simulator! :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. BTW SCS, i forgot to say big thank you for making ETS 2 beta testing video playlist, now all the videos from the beta are there and not hard to find on the internet, big thx for that.

    The game will not be a fail if Volvo and Mercedes aren`t in the game, yeah it is a sad news but, maybe after a few months they will give you green and you can make a patch adding the licences.
    I hope Renault will be licenced, i don`t like the Magnum, but i like the Premium. :D

    Oh and a question for you, the engine sound will be "real", i mean it will be from the recording session with the real trucks or you will change that too.

  59. A new video uploaded to Utube, this is a long video at over an hour long, without any speeded up footage


    Euro Truck Simulator 2 Beta Version 0.918

    Truck - Upgraded Route 66 Renault Magnum

    Trip Information - Torino To Dortmund

    Route Length - 631 Miles

    Game Time - 25 Hours And 42 Mins

    Real Time - 58 Mins ( Approx )

    A loverly drive, in a Magnum, mostly "A" roads, and a bit of motorway thrown in, it made a nice change to drive mainly on winding roads, than a motorway, took me a bit longer to do it this way though but it was less boring than constant motorway driving.

  62. Hey guys, I was looking through the game files in STDS and noticed that there's a Kia C'eed in the trafficstoarge.sii and I've found files for it elsewhere, but I've just never seen it in game. Does anyone want to prove me wrong or check out the files and see if you can enable it. You can never have enough traffic vehicles!

    ReplyDelete
  63. WTF is wrong with all you idiots "OMG If there's no branding it's REALLY bad" and "cos there's no branding, I'm never gonna buy this game"

    Did any of you have any of the earlier SCS games? like 18WOS, ALH, ETS? And didn't you, like me, find, very easily, a mod to make all the trucks have real names and logos? There will be mods: I predict within 2 weeks of launch maximum, to have real brand names and companies and stuff.

    Obviously, it'd be nice to have real logos and stuff from the outset, but if the manufacturers won't play ball, it can't be like that - and SCS can't release it with unlicensed brands. One thing I want, and one thing only, that's the game launched ASAP. One thing I DON'T want is any delay caused solely by trying to get brand-name permission. That would be a bad thing, for certain. The sooner SCS get the game launched and earning revenue, the sooner they can work on updates and on other games, and, maybe, in a later update, they can include branding if they get permission.

    Me, I say get the game out as soon as possible, screw the branding for companies that won't play ball, and let the modders do that, because SCS can then turn around and say "well, it wasn't us that did it".

    Me, I'd like to see an update on ALH using the ETS2/STDS game engine... :D

  65. Wow I'm so very very dispossession that Volvo possible wont make the game but its possible that's because their new FH isn't on the game as well as Mercedes equivalent that's why the are holding off. Me personnely I think we fans of the game should start a fan riot on Volvo and tell them they should pay SCSSoft for them to use the brand.or maybe get the press involved?! Please tell us why they wont to drop the branding of ETS2 and what there main argument is for us who are confused

    1. Pretty sure they make you sign a NDA before you even get to talk to someone at those companies. So don't expect to hear why. At least not unless you're willing to try to think as they do.

      I'm thinking that maybe their truck sales are based on brand value and not on actual truck interior design and feel, ie, they prefer to sucker ppl into buying on impulse and because they think it's the cool thing to have and being able to tell friends you have a 'insert company name'. But with a game like ETS2 you'd get to actually see and experience it for yourself, and they won't stand behind that... (but can't sue either since they didn't agree to show their brand and thus can't claim misrepresentation, nor can they sue on the basis that the trucks are accurately modeled but didn't get permission as that'd be the same as saying that they're true to life and can be used as a guide before purchase)

      Least that's what I'd do if my sole motivation was to focus on quarterly revenues and mid term profits.

      PS: Sorry for the overall dark tone, I tend to take it a little too personal when it comes to big companies.

  67. Ah well, both are somehow to be expected. Carmanufacturers are getting more selfish by the day, demaning more ridiculous things and a larger sum of money before they get in a game that can never harm their reputation.

    As for the Greenlight thing.... you might as well call it a day. I think what I feared for became reality: too many horror games, and too many wanna-be titles with the word ''Simulator'' in the title, making people think ETS2 is also just another sim.

    Too bad, but oh well. You guys do the best you can.

  69. Do not worry, SCS Software developers have worked hard and if they will not give licensias, already a mod fix. I really do not find any difference in the exterior and interior, plus it does not need to see Mercedes or Volvo, I care about is driving.
    What I liked about this game are the Conditions by changing climates, the passage from day to night and vice versa, and when you get gas or rest, with that for me is a very accomplished game.

    1. Just for a stupid logo? Lol so many angry kids... People understand this, ETS 2 is still that awesome game that is about to be launched just without 2 "real" trucks, SCS did in my opinion a great job replacing the licences with fake ones, but those fake ones are made with high quality, the Volvo logo, or Valiant is allmost the same as the real one, and Majestic logo looks great too, if you say that you wont buy the game just because Volvo and Mercedes didn`t aprove the licences you prove how stupid you are. I`m sorry for saying this but it is the truth, like someone said before, ETS 1 and all of SCS games didn`t had any real licences and now when it has it is wrong because you want to much, it is not SCS`s fault. Volvo and Mercedes are the bad people ;) try to understand this.

      I understand you are too little but try tu understand this, in these days it is ALL BOUT MONEY and i`m not refering to SCS.

    Its the game's concept and its quality, a gamer enjoys while playing, not the real brands of trucks.

    I don't whether non-branding is gonna hurt your pockets or not, but its definetely not gonna hurt our feelings for you guys.

    As far as branding is concerned, you guys (SCS) is itself a Brand in TruckSim.

    Thanks for the playlist on Youtube.

  88. From a Valiant driver:

    I understand the complex nature of brand usage, but still, to me it seems that Scania and MAN are the only ones to prove their superiority in the truck business by this kind gesture (positive publicity, whatever the cost..) and make their PR-image a lot stronger in the future drivers' (and maybe even customers) generation.

    These other brands don't really seem to know or understand the value of niche marketing or what effect this game has on the young minds of future truckers. (And older ones too, I'm wishing my "Valiant" was a Scania :)
