ETS2 vehicle registration plates

One wish-list item we can take off the list, a hundred more to go...

During the past weeks, we have toiled on the flexible registration plate system both for trucks as well as all types of AI vehicles. The goal was to represent each country in the game with proper license plates for front and back of vehicles (which usually differ, and not just by color as in the UK). Our previous license plates system was often criticized before for not being good, in fact in the early days of beta test it was the most raised issue for taking away the feeling of reality on the roads. So we decided to listen to player's feedback and do something about it. The new system is very flexible; it's data driven so customizable and extendable, it's procedurally generated so a huge number of combinations are possible, and it's actually better optimized than the old system.

 



We DO listen to your feedback all the time, you just must keep in mind that the volume of requests for features to include in the game is huge. If we were to grant all your current wishes (and no doubt more will come), we'd have to spend several more years on the game before it's finished. Nobody really wants that, right? ;-) We really need to concentrate now on just wrapping up what we have started already to get the initial release of the game out. We know you are very impatient to get your hands on the game already.

The release date of ETS2 doesn't mark the end of development for the game. Just as with Scania TDS, and if fact even more so, we are committed to continuing development of the game beyond release version. Future updates will not contain just bug fixes if any are needed, but also major feature additions. There are also plans brewing for extending the virtual world - of course we are aware that many of you are not happy that we are not properly covering more of the territory of Europe. It will not be a small undertaking, but with your support, we may be able to gradually grow the virtual world, too.

  1. You have my erspect for the work you do! The evolution between Euro truck and it is just amazing! You can be proud of the work.
    Just a question, they will be represented officially manufacturers? (Real name, real model)

      But let's just get our hands on the game, support it with our wallets and hopefully SCS will reward us down the road :)

    3. Yes, it's me :) Every day for at least 6-8 hours. :) Bad that there is no counter, real-time, as in the ETS-ATS, otherwise say for sure :))

    4. Well, it's just sad that you score more that can be done within a timeframe. I have an eye on you and lets see for how long more you can cheat.
      When you score 6000 within a time where its possible only to make 4500 point, you show yourself as cheater, and I can prove it.

    6. 32k in delivers Serge Olson... that's definitely not average time spent on hauling so many points, that's impossible. It's cheats just like the other top 5 goons.

      Delete
    7. How much time do you spend on the game? I have minimum 6-8 hours, on average 12-14 hours and more.

      Delete
    8. weekly i spend around 15 hours, and on that i can haul 850 points.. i don't have time to play it everyday. I guess you played it everyday for 7-8 hours to reach 32k points, well if that's the case, i'm sorry accusing you for being a cheater, i just have a hard time understand, how it's possible to reach 32k points.

      Delete
    9. Every day I spend my time in the game, since the 1.4.0 update, and every day I spend a lot of time. The average number of points per day 1500-2000. Sometimes a little less, and when the rivals were in 7,000-11,000 points, then had 3000 points and bring. It was hard, his eyes closed, but he had to go forward. I love this game, and look forward to ETS2.

    12. Relax guys, SCS has an eye on him, and the next update will stop him from cheating.
      He says he make 1500-2000 per day and he says he play 7-8 hours per day, that's 250 point each hour,
      which you can not do without cheating, do the calc. Back before update 1.4 he jumped from 18000 to 87000 in score i 2 days. Before the reset the board. But what the heck, when the new update come, the board will probely be reset again and the cheat should be over.

      Delete
  5. This is amazing SCS, the plates look absolutely fantastic, you have done a real good job regarding this feature. However, I do have a question: is it possible for the player to customize the license plate of the truck/trailer as he wishes? E.g like here?

    http://pictures.topspeed.com/IMG/crop/201005/mercedes-actros-12_1600x0w.jpg

    (MB=Mercedes-Benz, 1860=18 tonnes, 598 horsepower and the S I believe stands for Stuttgart).

    Thank you, I hope you will reply:)

  6. Amazing work :-) iv been sitting on the edge of my seat,,,,, well it feels like forever,,,,,, but it's going to be so worth it.
    Sorry to ask this but iv got 1 question (not wanting to fire up people so they start complaining we want this we want that we want to be able to put rockets on the truck and fly to the moon) just wondering if there are double trailers or 7.5t trucks. If not I'm not going to demand them the games going to be great anyway

    1. Screw that! You won't notice when you play. And if we want to have more vehicles on the road at once, they can't have them looking as good as the players truck (will kill our PC's).

  11. I waiting a long time.everyday I am entering your blog .when will you release the game?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't remember people asking about registration plates in the comments. Maybe beta testers did but not people here. Ok you did new system for registration plates, cool, we are happy. But if you DO listen you probably know that we want few small features for the TRUCKS, because it's a TRUCK simulator right?

    Let me put this again:
    - openable windows (up and down in separate buttons)
    - attachable wires to the trailers (one button to attach and detach)
    - in-cab light (one button to switch on and off when it's dark)

    As you can see I'm not asking for multiplayer, double trailers or winter season like many dreamers here. I'm also not saying it must be done now but it should be added in future updates. I will be grateful if you listen to what I wrote. Response would be appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i dont need openalbe windows, the wires autoattach is fine, ok maybe the in-cab light would be an idea for ets3 or a patch..

      more important is indeed the multiplayer.. i really hope this comes in ets3 atleast.

      greatings.

      Delete
    2. Stuferus if you've played STDS you may have noticed that switching from inside camera (1) to head-out camera (2) happens with the closed windows? It's not realistic for me to put head out through a closed window. If you first have to open the window to use the camera 2 then it would be more realistic right? That's the reason why we want openable windows.

      Delete
    3. yeah CETS keep asking about those small features, and eventually they'll see it, let's just hope they will add it in the updates/expansions at least.. oh and i want a much brighter Moon, thanks

      Delete
    4. Moon could be brighter but also should be half the size. It's just too big!

      I want add that in the future we should be able to buy trailers and assign them to the trucks. Now in our company we can connect driver + truck but driver + truck + trailer should be the goal.

      Delete
    5. @CETS

      Hahaha, what are you crying, many people have asked for license plates into the game. ;)

      But there was a few months ago a post of SCS where they had it already, but now its muche nicer! ;)

      Lol, you must learn to read.

      Delete
    6. Indeed CETS now we're talking about real simulation! i wish Astragon ( developers of many simulation games) had helped ScS develop ETS 2, then we would have so much realism, you couldn't imagine ^^

      @ Flokstra i know many people were looking forward to se how the plates would end up in the game, and it looks great no doubt about that, however for my sake, they didn't had to post it, i would have preferred, a new video showing us something about firms and truck license, just my opinion.

      Delete
    7. Now i understand the needing of openable windows. if you CAN look out you have to open the windows! I was thinking you cant look out in ets2, but there are also other tasks to do with opening windows.

      Like wind sound that must be variable if you driving fast and slow to hear the wind and if SCS do this right you need to change the truck sound also because you can hear better the motor and horn and thunderstorms and AI Cars cars. That will be time consuming, but necessary i think if they decide to make openable windows.

      Greetings

    8. Please please please, die just now. Just get rid of the idea to open the windows. It is useless, so stfu.

    10. CETS you're just an idiot. ETS 2 has 166 more features and has taken more than 30 man years to make, and all you can thing about is Opening a dam window. What's so great about that when you can add lights a various features to your truck, hmm?

      Also, almost every member from the UK asked for real registration plates as ours were not only the wrong colour but didn't make sense! We needed this, you want openable windows. How about virtual farts too?

  13. "We really need to concentrate now on just wrapping up what we have started already to get the initial release of the game out."

    may i maybe ask, how long you think that will take?
    there are many releasedates around.. just wondering which is the real one or if thay all are wrong.

    i/we (i hope anyone agrees with me) want the game sooner than later.. but a "finished" and nearly "bug free" version.

    cant wait to drive.

    btw. a wish for ets3 or an ets2 patch (plse note it): isnt it possible to (how should i state this..) - while building a company not only buy trucks and hire drivers, but buy own trailers too and have tham just loaded and unloaded?!? i hope you understand what i mean.

    greatings and sorry for the last part in the deleted last comment.

    1. talk about a system similar to American Long Haul or you could buy a flatbed trailer and load cargo only been made for this trailer? I agree on principle to!

      Management for the part, I would have been able to buy raw land and gradually build his garage (near buildings set!) With these colors.

    2. company owned trailers able to be given color, wheels, bumper,....similar to truck would be 1 of the first features for me. Basic control on how my company will look like would be cool too like anonymous above me mentions, couple choises on raw land (near big road= expensive, cheaper further away)couple variations to choise from (number of garages, room for x trucks,....)and with few items that you're able to change like a plate woth companyname. however last part (the building) is for me only extra

    I like the licenseplates, they look very nice.

    I have also something what could be importand for you guys.
    It's about an internet site were you can place your ambitions.
    If people like your ambitions they can support you with money.
    Offcourse there are a lot of Therm of Uses and Policies, and you really need to bring out your project at the end.

    Since ETS2 is about to get released, you could describe your "Kickstart" as follow: By a funding from €#####, we have enough money to extend the map of the game.

  29. I'm hoping ETS2 is the last of its series and the patches will just make it bigger & better.

    Here's some ideas for you guys to list down into future patches(Hey replies, READ: FUTURE PATCHES NOT THE ORIGINAL RELEASE). Would be nice if SCS themselves replied to this!

    - Realistic thunder effects:
    ---* (During lightning storm) If the player is with the outside cam, they hear the loud version of thunder, but if they're inside the cabin, they hear the silenced version of it(silenced as in it's quieter and bass is felt in the car)
    ---* (During lightning storm) Realistic lightning. The rumbling does not appear right after a strike. It takes some seconds. In Scania TDS, it only takes a fraction if the lightning always hits nearby, which it shouldn't. Rumbling should also be longer and have more bass.

    - Echoes
    ---* (Tunnel - only outside cam) When a truck is driving through a tunnel(or a bunch of cars are driving through the tunnel), you can hear echoes off walls.
    ---* (Woods - only outside cam) When there's lots of trees around, a smaller echo could be heard. Trees have to be really close and it wouldn't work on a highway.

    - Dirt
    ---* Dirt will appear on trucks/cars if they drive on the grassy areas/gravel. If it rains, and the player drives on a grassy area/gravel, then the dust on the truck/trailer gets darker and is more visible. Appears near wheels.

    - Rain
    ---* After the rain stops, the 'effects' of the rain(the droplets on windows) usually leave dust marks on the windshield or the droplets themselves are still there for quite some time. (In the areas where the wipers can't reach)

    - Service
    ---* Trucks will have to service regularly. If they don't, the trucks 'age' and lose some of their speed and take fuel faster.

    Ah that's my list done for today.

    Criticism welcome, don't be a total ass though.

    (Do keep in mind, these are ideas for future patches, don't want to delay the game do we!)

    1. You have very good ideas.It would be great if we could see all these improvements in the future patches

      Delete
    3. Yeah, it would include every larger sound that comes off the cars.

    4. For me the most important thing to add after release are cities. Cities and new countries. Maybe they can put them in the game gratis or maybe they can make some DLC but, i hope that scs enlarge the game world

    5. I completely disagree with karlip.

    6. Please do contribute why, Mark, because as I said: any criticism is welcome and the ideas can be improved.

    7. These are just pointless, why ask for this when you could have other things like more realistic cargo depots, on truck damage and pedestrians?

      Not a single request will be in the game unless it was put there earlier as the game is in the BETA stage anyway.

    I may be wrong, but is the letter "Q" permited in the Austrian registration plate system for the end random letter part (if used), the same for "O" for the random letter part ("O" is used in some of the geographical codes and the letter part of personalized series as O & 0 look the same)

  35. Hi SCS. Great that u are talking about how long its left now it completly turned my interest from 0 to 10. and love that you are talking about your planes to expand and patch the game after release. In my opinion you should focus all your time after the release to make a big patch with multiplayer before you extend the map and add all the small things. i would easily pay 60 euros for this game if it had multiplayer and i know that everyone i know would to, even tho they arent as into this game as i am. With multiplayer you will get fans that dont even give this game a thought now. and yes i know you wont be able to make multiplayer before the release and im not asking for it either:P But if you have even thought about making a multiplayer patch (lobby style, so the one hosting is the server and others join on his server) i would strongly recomend that you inform about that. If multiplayer is something you plan to make i think people that only will buy this game if it has multiplayer will buy it before it comes aswell. If multiplayer is added later on as a patch or expansion the interest will go up even before the release of Multiplayer. I know you have read all my other post regarding this and others posts aswell. If you dont want to reply thats fine, but i and probably many others would want to know if you are planning a expansion. when you are planning it isent important, but if you are planning it it would be epic to know. alot easier to get friends interested aswell. + you can inform that multiplayer expansion is coming on steam and i think that will get you 100x more votes then it is now. The game is just insane, you are by far the best at making simulator games, and with multiplayer (planned) i know people who dont even care about driving trucks will buy it:) Driving alone is fun for thoose who like trucks++ but boring for those who doesent. so i am not demanding multipleyer, but i know that you know very well what it would do to your games and to your company, it wouldent just make the game the best one released so far, it would make SCS software Grow alot. and for you guys who say: I DONT CARE ABOUT SCS GETTING BIGGER AND MAINSTREAM!! i just want a good game. srsly? if this game gets more mainstream and scs gets bigger and get more money. automaticly the games will be better and you will be able to get all the fetures that you want. if they become larger they will afford to make openable windows and cabin lights and small Smurfs that hug you|

  37. I am interested if someone knows how to extract whole base.scs with scs_extractor?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. make a new folder

      copy/paste the base.scs &/or the def.scs to the new folder.

      put scs_extractor.exe in the same new folder.

      right click on scs_extractor.exe and copy then paste a short-cut to it also in the same folder.

      call the new short-cut e.g. scs_extractor_base

      do the same to also make scs_extractor_def short-cut

      right click on the scs_extractor_base short-cut and select properties.

      on the end of the target add: base.scs base

      to make e.g. without the []
      ["C:\new folder\scs_extractor.exe" base.scs base]

      do the same for the scs_extractor_def short-cut, but just add: def.scs

      to make e.g. without the []
      ["C:\new folder\scs_extractor.exe" def.scs]

      then just run the short-cuts like any other short-cut, the def.scs only takes a few sec to unpack, the base.scs takes 30sec to 1.5min

    2. Thanks b101uk,I will try that.

      Delete
    3. or just make a random folder, copy base and extractor in to it, take the base file and drop it over/on the extractor.exe and it unpacks it self

      Delete
    4. It works,once again thank you very much for quick and detailed answer.

    5. yes drag & drop works for the def file - will make a def folder if scs_extractor.exe & def.scs are in the same place.

      but with the base.scs if you drag & drop it on scs_extractor.exe it don't make a "base" folder, so you have to then cut/paste or drag/drop all the files/folders into a "base" folder.

      both method are just as easy, but the method i posted the short cuts are always there to re-use with newer patches/pached base.scs/def.scs

    3. Dude. we are asking for a Multiplayer Lobby style not a Online server. You start a game, then invite a friend or 2. YOU deside who gets to join and who u want to kick/invite. noone want massive online multiplayer. Just the option to invite some friends to your game, so noone can smash into you unless you invite him and let him do it. and you will always be able to kick that person if you invite a person who want to fuck up for you. and it wont cost scs any money to keep servers up, bacause your computer will be the server and others need to join your game, so it depends on your computer and internett speed if the server is good or not. so dont complain about multiplayer beeing a bad thing. If they add multiplayer EVERYONG that are against it can just choose not to play multiplayer. multiplayer doesent take away the option to play singleplayer it just adds the option to invite friends to your game and play with them. and that has been said in almost every post about multiplayer so before u start bicthing READ the posts not just multiplayer then nerdrage!

      Delete
    4. I believe that ETS2 world will have plenty of interesting content so that game would not need any multiplayer,for now.

      But I have a suggestion: for all people who want to compete with each other,to make a server on which players will have own profile and a option to upload their current in-game status/info about money,skill,career progress,number of transported cargos,trucks etc. and compete in various categories.I think that this would be best and easiest way for the beginning.

      Delete
    5. I think the most hilarious part here is that people think you can simply implement a multiplayer functionality with a patch. Adding such a feature would require major rewriting of the game engine. It's not going to happend for ETS2, and you'll have to accept that.

      Delete
    6. I still don't get how multiplayer would be a valid option.

      say you invite a few friends to your game, the game world is so big, literally hours (big plural there) of driving from one side of the map to the other. What are the chances you'll ever meet up? And if you do meet up, what then? You guys may as well play in your own single player game and talk through a third party app, for all the difference that would make.

      Honestly though, explain to me how you imagine it would work!

  46. personally i am looking forward to the release of ETS 2 , i've enjoyed all the truck sims so far so are eager to play this one too ... Whats with all the fuss about multiplayer ? ... All i can see happening is a bunch of numptys crowding up the game and spoiling it for those who actually enjoy what they do , so a suggestion might be to get a seperate game maybe demolition truck derby to satisfy there needs ... And has for the rest be grateful for its arrival and any future issues you have maybe they can be addressed with a patch , like most games are nowadays , so be patient and no doubt it will be worth the wait ... good luck for the future SCS , at least you have one happy bunny here

  50. Hello SCS, to see of you are working hard with the game, and even for me, I do not know these cards very different from those European countries, glad, because you caring so much about it, wanting to leave the game ever best for us.

    These days I am very busy, and nor is it whenever I can get on the blog several times a day, which is not old, but I'm always trying to keep up in here. And today it is the most important holiday in my country (Brazil's independence),
    I can stay here, seeing and remembering some old posts.

    While the vote on the cover of the game, do not know if I've chosen the cover of Steam GreenLight, but please respect the other brands that SCS got the license beyond Scania, please choose the symbol of the wheel only just written 'Euro Truck Simulator 'without the truck Scania, about other brands.

    I hope you understood what I said.

  51. Could someone be so kind and explain to me why exactly is it so important to know the release date? Everybody knows they're already making pretty much the finishing touches and once that's done the game is out. What difference does it make to one's life knowing the exact date since he/she/it won't be playing it any sooner than not knowing the date anyway? It's done when it's done and that's that. There are million and seven games to play in the meantime. And I'm fairly sure we'll all know it well in advance when it's ready to ship out.

    In ETS2 we should be able to buy our __Own Trailers__!!!!
    That would be a cool new update to the series. And i think its time to have something new and different to the games.
    Besides Alot of companies(Like in game Eurogoodies etc.) in real life dont have their own trailers. The company thats going to haul their product needs to have own trailer.
    To bring more reality to the games it would be nice update if we could buy __ouw own trailers__.
    System would work just as buying trucks so you have a list of all trailers and then you choose whatever trailer you want buy it and then you could take it from your garage or at trailer dealer.
    And you could get more money if you haul with your own trailer rather than companies trailer. All the other company trailers would still be there if you dont wanna haul with your own trailer then you can take company trailer.
    I think that would be an awsome update to game. If you can add it to the game it would be awsome

    Replies
    1. And where do you park all the trailers you would need when they are not in use, or are you proposing is you only buy a tipper trailer you only get tipper trailer type work etc

      Each garage would need a few of the following just to start out:
      Tipper trailer
      Reefer trailer
      Flat trailer
      Low-loader trailer
      Box trailer
      Shipping container trailer
      Fuel tanker trailer
      Chemical tanker trailer
      Powder tanker trailer
      Food tanker trailer
      Waste tanker trailer
      Cement mixer trailer
      Brick trailer
      Panel transporter trailer

      As for real life, you would be surprised how many large company’s own or long-term contract hire trailer fleets while only retaining a small amount of their own trucks so hire in owner-drivers on long-term contract who because of the long contract period paint their trucks in the colours/brand of their principal employer.

      By large company’s retaining ownership of trailers they save money, as haulage is cheaper and you don’t have sub-contract drivers waiting around being paid while their own specific trailer is loaded, as they can literally take the first available loaded one. ;)

      Delete
    2. It would be a alternative to existing trailers.
      So that you could buy your own trailers when you have started your own company, but you dont have to buy them because those company trailers would still be in the yard.
      So when you dont have your own company then you haul company trailers but when you start your own company and buy garages then you can buy your own trailers.
      You dont have to buy all existing trailers because you still could get company trailers if you want...
      And those trailers what you bought will be at your garages...

    Hi SCS. Great that u are talking about how long its left now it completly turned my interest from 0 to 10. and love that you are talking

    about your planes to expand and patch the game after release.

    In my opinion you should focus all your time after the release to make a big patch with multiplayer before you extend the map and add all

    the small things. i would easily pay 60 euros for this game if it had multiplayer and i know that everyone i know would to, even tho they

    arent as into this game as i am.

    With multiplayer you will get fans that dont even give this game a thought now. and yes i know you wont be able to make multiplayer before

    the release and im not asking for it either:P But if you have even thought about making a multiplayer patch (lobby style, so the one hosting

    is the server and others join on his server) i would strongly recomend that you inform about that.

    If multiplayer is something you plan to make i think people that only will buy this game if it has multiplayer will buy it before it comes

    aswell. If multiplayer is added later on as a patch or expansion the interest will go up even before the release of Multiplayer.
    I know you have read all my other post regarding this and others posts aswell.

    If you dont want to reply thats fine, but i and probably many others would want to know if you are planning a expansion. when you are

    planning it isent important, but if you are planning it it would be epic to know. alot easier to get friends interested aswell. + you can

    inform that multiplayer expansion is coming on steam and i think that will get you 100x more votes then it is now.

    The game is just insane, you are by far the best at making simulator games, and with multiplayer (planned) i know people who dont even care

    about driving trucks will buy it:)
    Driving alone is fun for thoose who like trucks++ but boring for those who doesent. so i am not demanding multipleyer, but i know that you

    know very well what it would do to your games and to your company, it wouldent just make the game the best one released so far, it would

    make SCS software Grow alot. and for you guys who say: I DONT CARE ABOUT SCS GETTING BIGGER AND MAINSTREAM!! i just want a good game.
    srsly? if this game gets more mainstream and scs gets bigger and get more money. automaticly the games will be better and you will be able

    to get all the fetures that you want. if they become larger they will afford to make openable windows and cabin lights and small Smurfs that

    hug you|

    Hope you read this and i would love a Reply:)
    End qvot

    Totally agree with you !!

      Delete
    3. Wow this guy can really write "multiplayer" many times.. People who are not fans of simulation will not go for it even if it has multiplayer or not. Lets assume SCS adds this feature. Next the same people (the ones who will not buy this without multiplayer) will then complain that its boring in multiplayer it would have been better if we had Trucks with guns. Good luck with that

      Delete
  55. Now i understand the needing of openable windows. if you CAN look out you have to open the windows! I was thinking you cant look out in ets2, but there are also other tasks to do with opening windows.

    Like wind sound that must be variable if you driving fast and slow to hear the wind and if SCS do this right you need to change the truck sound also because you can hear better the motor and horn and thunderstorms and AI Cars cars. That will be time consuming, but necessary i think if they decide to make openable windows.

    1. And after a rainy day you can clean your windows by pulling it down and up.. A bit realism, the windows will never be 100% clean after this. But they need to fix the rain on the windows to hold on longer than 2 seconds after the rain stops firts.

  60. people READ this:
    SCS is not going to add anything to ETS2 like opening windows, map upgrades, multiplayer or other things because it is just TOO close to the release. No game company does this because now it is just Bug fixing and BETA testing. so stop whining about them adding new stuff because they simply can't do that at this stage of the game(every game). So just stop with those posts and post something usefull for scs.

  61. Pleeeeeeeeease release date!

    ReplyDelete
  62. SCS, I massively respect your work and cannot wait for ETS, thanks to Pavel and the team for producing such a good group of games recently. If you were to add some things before or after release, and which is arguably far more important than opening windows or gas lighters or whatever extreme simulator fans want. I think that AI traffic now needs some more variety, there are now plenty of small cars, but it does need to be fleshed out a bit:

    International coaches,
    Cars with trailers and bikes,
    Smaller trucks like the MAN F2000,
    MPV's,
    Emergency vehicles (just in normal traffic for now),
    a lot more vans; like an Opel Vivaro or Citreon jumper, maybe even minibus variants.
    Caravans being towed
    Motorhomes,

    Hell maybe even buses, but that'd be local traffic in the cities, not on the highway.

    Also there needs to be a lot less truck cabs driving around, it's very rare to see them on the highway in real life.
    If you can't implement all of this then can you please add a 'traffic density slider' or something of the sort, to make driving a bit more interesting and realistic. With certain hotspots like the Paris Autorouté or the M25 around London, and varying levels between the day and night! It's only a suggestion and I appreciate your on a budget, however I'm happy for the game to be released in 2013 if it means more features and such!

    Can't wait for the release regardless!

  71. I think it would be really cool to add a TeamSpeak or Vent channel to the game so it could be pseudo-multiplayer. We could voice-chat with other truckers in the game... maybe a seperate channel for every country to make it act like a radio. But then again, maybe I'm just being romantic about the CB radio and trucking in the USA. On the other hand, it would be quite simple to implement as this feature could run independant of ETS2.

God, as they got to the translations, I would have already fired the fuck these workers, even so you can not call them, think that they also send gas takzhe____ wait to come in April, then in July, September it.d., and end may come to write for the new year and the date is not known, like they are there and work and do not have to believe excuses bring the game to perfection, it's sand in the eye.

  79. Before you release ETS2 i'd be happy to see the following annoying BUG which has been in all SCS games so far being fixed:
    It's impossible to use cruise control (c-key) together with a joystick with configured throttle. The reason most likely is that the throttle axis returns slightly different values each time even if the throttle has not been moved by player which constantly disengages cruise control. The program should save the initial throttle setting when c is engaged and use a deadzone threshold (maybe configured deadzone for the axis) to determine whether to disengage cruise control or not.

    1. Idiots are taking over
    2. It has so many compatibility issues with IE9

  83. I'm hoping that in time you can extend the current world with more secondary roads "European roads" and more contries all the way to the Ural mountains, is some sort of one big "expansion pack"... :)

    There's nothing i'd like more than to drive in my country on some very well represented roads and scenery (like you did in the rest of the virtual world...
