Not enough zombies!

Thanks for everyone's support with Steam Greenlight campaign for Euro Truck Simulator 2. We have over 1,600 votes already, and over 50 pages of mostly very encouraging comments.

Still it looks like it might be a good idea to add a few zombies into the game; judging by some of the leading submissions so far, adding zombies could bring us an order of magnitude more votes! ;-). We'll most likely resist the temptation - but kidding aside, this is a cold reminder for us as well as for you our fans that the potential of our truck sim "niche" is really limited compared to mainstream topics that Joe the gamer wants to deal with in the games he buys. The scope, depth and quality of our games are always going to be limited by how much money = manpower we can invest into them; how much money it's possible to make selling them to people willing to buy them. This pool is not that big. Exposure is key to get the game in front of as many eyes as possible.

The push for ETS on Greenlight will definitely continue for some time, nothing is decided yet. We thought that perhaps the fan community can help us even more in this long term effort. The effect of our blog has its limits, the news will get old very quickly. But quite a lot of you are running trucksim-related websites, blogs, facebook pages and message boards. Some visitors may come to you only from time to time, wouldn't it be great to have something permanent on the page to bring their attention to our cause?

We would like to offer you a set of banners and buttons that you can put on your web property to support ETS2. If you like any of the buttons, please use them to link them to the ETS2 Greenlight page. Big thanks!






We have these buttons and banners nicely packed in a ZIP file for download, with version including JPG on black and white backgrounds and PNG with transparency, at several sizes here:

www.eurotrucksimulator2.com/ets2_greenlight.zip

To wrap up this post, we have another YouTube movie for you. This one has been actually recorded over 2 weeks ago, some of the things in the game have been changed since then, and even the game logo in it is now obsolete. But we thought it would be a shame to lose all the work invested into creating the video, we quite like it.

  3. I've added the greenlight link to my own facebook page and asked everybody including non fans of the game to vote.

    I cant wait to do the long haul deliveries in ETS2. I just hope there will be a retail DVD version in my local gamestop upon release.

  9. One thing that should be fixed is the cargo trains number of wagons behind the locomotive. There are usually a lot more wagons behind it, even around 50. So 5-7 is not really normal.

    Not really hard to fix I guess, so think about it!

    Thanks for your time SCS!

    1. Putting that many cargo trucks behind a train would be stupid. Every cargo truck takes up the resource of the computer and like many I would be rather annoyed if the games frame rates reduced just because a train had so many trucks behind it. This is a truck simulator, not a train simulator. If you want to see realistic trains then maybe you should take a look at many of the train simulator that are available. Yes it is nice to see realistic scenery, but keep it as frame rate friendly as possible, so 5 to 7 trucks behind a train is fine by me.

      Delete
    2. I can't see how longer trains would affect frame rates that dramatically. In that case it would either be a big problem with the game engine, if such objects would have that kind of impact on the game. Or even more likely, the player would have a very shitty computer.

      I don't think it would be stupid. I think 50 is too much, but there could definitely be some longer and some shorter trains. Variation is the key to make something entertaining.

      Main point should be trucks, so the trains don't matter that much. But if 50 wagons causes problems, then why wouldn't 1?

      Delete
    3. If you think adding train carriages to the train wont effect FPS much then you need to do more research. Its like people want lots of traffic but the more traffic the more resources the game will take up and lower FPS. I do agree there should be longer and shorter trains but it should depend on the graphics settings. If your computer needs low settings then it should have short trains only but if you can have ultra settings then long trains with more traffic should be seen with variations of lots of traffic during the day to very low ammounts of traffic at night. It should be random though. So if your graphics are at Ultra and your computer can handle it should vary between lots of traffic to hardly any traffic and it should vary between long trains and short trains.

      I am not asking for this I am just adding to the discussion.

      Delete
    4. @steve farrel:
      Kinda odd that the frame rate stays the same in train simulator games, no matter if there is 10 or 50 carriages.

      Train carts are not like traffic or pedestrians, it is one big thing moving to one direction. Pedestrians/cars are individual objects that have different textures and need to be rendered individually. A train passing by shouldn't affect frame rates dramatically, no matter how many carriages it has. Either the engine is not good enough to handle it or the player's computer is not good enough for the game, if it becomes unplayable when that happens. Of course it has affect on the frame rates like everything else in the game, but the game should stay playable.

      Delete
    5. I never said the framerate woild dramatically be reduced but every object thats aded to a game is something else that the computer has to use resources for. Also in train simulators most of the time your computer oesnt have to draw lots of traffic along with the train most of the time.

      Everything that is added to the game including trees or road side signs will add something else that will use computer resources and reduce FPS bit by bit.

  12. I am so drawn to ETS 2 - and I find it difficult to put my finger on what exactly it is. I came upon ETS 2 at simflight.com (Been a flight sim junkie for many years) of all places, and was truly impressed by the youtube clips I found. Bought STDS in a flash four days ago - and have been trucking around the freeform map ever since. Even went out and bought a Logitech steering wheel to get that extra good driving feel. Absolutely love it! You guys have done an excellent job with STDS - and I honestly can't wait for ETS 2 - really! :)

    Found myself some lovely mp3 radio channels that helps me get that imo immersive truck-haulin' feeling. A bit of country, easy listening, rock etc. etc. ;)

    I am a 39 year old family guy with two small children, so an hour or two of trucking after the kids are sound asleep, and the wife busy with the latest reality show or whatever; is sweet relaxation for me. Takes my mind of work and chores - and eases me into my own little truck-world for a little while. :)

    Great stuff! I really hope you succeed and make boat-loads of money off ETS 2. Cheers SCS - you deserve it. :)

    2. The acceleration caused the "bobbing" while going up through the gears.
      Thats normal with a heavy load and lots of torque.

      Delete
    3. It’s still not quite right though as the Merc needs looking at, as the rear mudguard/tyres are to close and given with the dynamic load transfer from the front with rear wheel torque, as the front rises this portion of weight should be transferred onto the rear axle compressing it, all the merc’s (4x2, 6x2 & 6x4) seam not show this trait of dynamic load transfer as the rear axle/s of the merc appear to stiff with little movement in this aspect whereas the Volvo (4x2, 6x2 & 6x4) do and also have a larger gap between rear mudguard/tyres, its almost as if the merc’s are on the “bump stops”

      Delete
    4. It's true about the gap at the back wheels. Seems weird.
      I didn't notice that at first.

  18. There are indeed two major issues with Greenlight and the offer of games on it, which I see as a threat to ETS2's chances.

    1, there are TOO MANY horror games. I keep looking on Greenlight every day, and on the first day already I got sick of the amount of zombiegames on it. Doesn't matter if people will realise this too, but they keep ETS2 away from the pages people will still want to browse too, decreasing chances on success.

    2, there are TOO MANY fake simulators! This is the largest issue. People like us, who know ETS2, know that ETS2 is a totally different game than Airport Simulator, Heavy Transport Simulator, Trainstation Simulator.... Toilet Simulator >.<
    However, the majority doesn't know ETS2, and thinks it's just another Simulator branded game. You can see it in the comments, some people actually downvoted the game for the Simulator bit.

    All in all though, if we get EVERYBODY here to vote on ETS2, these things shouldn't limit the success and goal for ETS2.

  22. I wonder would SCS ever consider joining the WMD project for their next gamehttp://forum.wmdportal.com/forum.php
    http://www.wmdportal.com/about/

    Some basic info of what WMD is



    WMD (World of Mass Development) is a new platform for games creation from the award-winning developer Slightly Mad Studios that allows:

    Developers to submit ideas to an active gaming community, raise the funds needed to develop them, get continual feedback from community team members that can play work-in-progress builds, use the WMD Portal to promote their project, get help from other developers, and ultimately launch their game to an eagerly-awaiting audience
    Players to browse available projects and join any they are interested in, download and play regular builds of the game, participate in discussion & polls, speak directly to the developers, and eventually earn money back for their contribution when the game is released

    WMD is therefore a unique prospect for both developers looking to raise funds for their projects and gamers that want to get involved in exciting upcoming titles.

    So far Project Cars on the WMD project cars has raised over 1.4 million euro.

  29. Hi SCS software. If you wanna do well on steam make multiplayer. everyone i know is looking for games on steam and everytime they find a good game the comment "NO MULTIPLAYER" comes and they dont buy it. the games become much more fun if you can share it with friends. and NO we dont want massive multiplayer servers. But adding multiplayer and setting it up so 1 player start the game and the others join he's game, then you dont need massive servers because if i start a game and a friend of mine joins me i am the server. That would make the game alot more fun, to build up a company with a friend or to build up two different companys and work together. i really think you should make an update like this for ETS2 and inform on greenlight and here that a update like this is coming soon. then i know your votes on greenlight and your sales will go skyhigh compared to now. i dont know anything about making games but i know that if you want to increase interest of a game a multiplayer option like this will do it. we dont want multiplayer online servers just the option for a couple of friends to join our games and play together. And for all of you who will whine about this. it will be an OPTION to use it. YOU deside who gets to join you or IF someone gets to join you. so people wont be able to ruin your gaming experience. So SCS Software, you probably already know this but a option like that will be the best for this game especially if u want to make it on steam. Its more fun to play a game with a friend. I even played Farming simulator 2011 for several hours, and that isent because farming simulator 2011 is a good game, it had the option to play with a friend, and that is what makes games good. So im really hoping you read this and reply on it. it would be a shame if the option doesent come to the game because you would get ALOT more sales with it. so when you are done with ETS2 start working on expansions. A multiplayer expansion you could sell. people would pay to play it multiplayer. and those who dont want it can just not buy it:)

    So lets hope you read this and decide to listen to what i just said. it really will improve the game alot;)

    Best Regards
    Tiwaz Norway

    1. They read messages like this almost every day. They aren't adding multiplayer because they have just 10 people, if they were about to add MP to the game, it can only be done in 1 additional year. And there is much more people who want to buy this game in THIS sumer, than people who want multiplayer.

  30. When we can see a Video of the Engine Sounds from the other trucks??

  31. I don't get it...

    SCS has always made niche games, why the sudden desire to reach the mainstream audience?

    Also, you might be only reaching 1% or less of total worldwide gamers (most probably less), but that total keeps increasing as more and more gain access to personal computers, so your revenues will go up with time.

    Furthermore, there is a good chance that you will continue to refine your concept as the iterations keep rolling, and before too long you'll have a built up such an amount of experience within that genre that not many games studios will be able to compete with you, and you'll gain a monopoly of sorts within the motorized worker sim (want more worker class sims from scs, farming and all others).

    Lastly, you have to believe that there will be a shift at some point in the near future, where people do not only play pc games for entertainment, but also for a chance to experience an alternate life, or in this case, a desire to experience what it is like to be a trucker. The pc community will mature as the years pass, we're still in the infancy of this industry, don't loose site of that. :)

    1. I dont care about reaching mainstream. i just want multiplayer option and i think the effect of adding multiplayer will increase sails alot. and that is a very good thing for us and scs. more sails means more money for scs to improve games and make new ones. and if you say that they look for a alternate life multiplayer will make that life even more realistic;) so the game is good without multiplayer but great with multiplayer

      Delete
    2. i absoultely agree with you, but you know there are only limited people who loves simultations games, i mean it will never reach the role playing, shooting, strategy etc. genre. However as you said, if they added multiplayer it would boost their sales a little, so lets just hope they'll surprise os with that new feature in the future :)

      Delete
    3. They need to reach mainstream to be able to help their team grow and to help them to keep making games. The more people that buy their games the more money they make. If they remain niche then they will only be able to gain enough to just keep them going. I cant how hard it is to understand why they want reach out to mainstream and get out of the niche market.

      PS Why do I have to do captcha each time even when I am logged in. I have a hard time reading a lot of those captcha's

A good idea is that u SCS may prerelease the ets2 ( a beta version) to to see what could be corrected or added to the final ets2 and to recover a litel bit your budget ( maybe to add someting at the ets2).The beta version might have a serial code and with that serial u can upgrade the betA ets2 to the full ets2 ( when appeares and maybe to put it in steam

    9. I think the closest newest comment on trucks and their licencing was

      quote in - Steam Greenlight is here!:
      SCS SoftwareAugust 31, 2012 8:13 PM
      "We have licensed the rights from certain truck manufacturers to use their brand INSIDE the game."

      To me, that says they don’t as yet perhaps have ALL the truck makes fully confirmed as licenced, with perhaps a question mark over Iveco or daf, given there has been plenty of videos of Scania, MAN, Renault, Volvo, Merc

      Delete
    10. alright sorry for bringing false info AnonymousSeptember 2, 2012 6:27 PM i really thought they had all of the 8 trucks licensed, since the recent ExcaliburPubVideos , said Any " mention of truck manufacturers seen in these videos is subject to change. SCS Software are hard at work getting the best manufacturers on board so what may be seen in these early previews does not fully represent" thats the reason i got confused.. again sorry for the trouble

    7. you welcome nico & stefan ;) it seems like Andrei got something against you guys.. Andrei do you know some games need crack, if you lost your original copy? its much easier then all the trouble you have to through, and it's legal. also some people prefer a orginal copy of a game, with a cracked.exe so they dont need to put the CD in and out, everytime they have to play.

      Delete
    8. Yes you right Jasmin. I have UKTS but German version. I understand German but when I start modding it will not work on others... I downloaded crack (which didn't work btw) because well, I purchased the game but I can't play the same version as others.... But is it really legal than.... I'm not sure xD

      Delete
    9. exactly i see the problem there Nico, i would have done the same. I remember once had a issue with gta iv i started modding it, and suddenly i couldn't enter the game, because some mods overwrited the exe. files :S so i had to download a crack for gta 4 hehe, but the game was legally purchased ^^ so as long you have the game purchased for only your self, you are allowed to get a crack .exe for it, not to others ;)

      So maybe SCS could give me some light with doubles? Are they in or are they out. Otherwise people just get dissapointed.

  47. Some stuff looks unfinished or same as in the ETS. I really don't like that most of the warehouses are/or has completely same layout as in ETS. Another thing camera following is the same and the look from the wheel keeps vibrating like in ETS. So the game looks really unfinished or same as ETS which isn't good at all. Because of all that things it becomes same game as previous games, but with bigger map which has more realistic things and new menu layout with alot of features in it... I hope that game is still in beta ant you keep changing thing in it.

  48. I think SCS is just buying more time from us to complete the game. And to conceal release date SCS is asking of our help to put ETS2 on Steam.

  50. I think you're underestimating "Gamers". There is a huge potential in these games. Just look at Ship Simulator Extreme and Farming Simulator 2011. Although the kicker for these games boils down to Multiplayer. Everywhere you go and read about these games, you see Multiplayer being put up as the number one thing about it. Today, players expect a game to have multiplayer. Look at the "Trainz" - After their multiplayer patch launch, they had a period with 150% increased sales following it.

    I would be more than surprised if SCS wouldn't see the same kind of numbers if they added multiplayer. Simulation games simply aren't as fun alone.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have added one of the banners to my blog - http://zakxaev68.blogspot.com/

    Let's hope that many users will do the same and to support the project, so we can hope to see the game in Steam.

    One tip to SCS Software's team about the last banner - i have fixed the Steam Greenlight logo on the banner that i have used, because on the original one the Steam Greenlight logo is not exactly in the center of the image and does not look good, but that's a minor problem :)

    Good luck with the bug fixing and polishing the game :)

Il devrait seulement y avoir un vote positif pour savoir le potentiel client disponible pour ce jeu .. et non un vote positif/négatif qui permet aux imbéciles de voter contre par stupidité ..

    "We have set the release time to first week of August 2012". This is what you wrote in February. We have September and you don't even want to tell us release date. We have a right to know. I bet publishers already know the date. This is how you treat your fans!

I asked them to add the ability to allow me to use my Fanatec CSR Elite pedals plugged into USB seperate to my GT3S V2 and the next patch they adde the ability to use my pedals seperate to my wheel. I asked them to have one mirror only in the HUD and the next patch they ha the option to have just one mirror in the HUD.

      Just because you are disapointed wih what SCS is doing doesnt mean you have to lie about them.

    3. I tottaly agree with you. Yes, the game looks cool but communication with fans is very poor. Developers are asking fans help and fans are doing the best to help. But then fans ask for a release date there is a total silence. If you don't know the date then please tell that. I really hope you will not loose fans support and will treat them better. I trully believe that difference between "buy the game" and "download torrent" is in developers ability to make sure game fans likes not only the game but developers team also. That's why it is so important nice communication between players and developers. Both sides wins that way. Please don't make people to choose "download torrent".

      Delete
    4. Also SCS dont owe us anything and we dont have the right to know the release date until they are reay to give a solid release date. If they give us a new release date and it gets pushed back again we will get more negative comments from people that are disapointed.

      Delete
    5. @Anonymous. As a customers and fans we have a right to know. We are not a random players. We wait for this game over 2 years. They did not released game in first week of August so they should tell us new date. I understand that they did not make ETS2 in time but they can't sit like nothing happened.
      @steve farrell. They just added support for more devices, nothing special. Ask hundreds of people asking about openable windows or cabels attached to the trailers.
      @Slatkus. People need to realize that fans are supporting SCS for many years and they don't listen to us. Maybe we should not listen to them either? Close the blog, don't tell us nothing, release the game when you want to and ignore us even more.

      Delete
    6. Wait you are still bloody crying over openable windows. You guys really need to get a life. I can also say that openable windows and cables connected to the trailer is nothing special too because it doesnt matter to me.

      Get over yourself. SCS dont owe you anything and you dont deserve anything from them. Just because you think you are owed something doesnt mean its true. We will get a release date and maybe we might get your OH So precious openable windows and cables some time in a patch.

      Delete
    7. Maybe because we like to drive with opened windows???
      Maybe because we expect something more then just graphicly tunned ETS/GTS???
      Maybe because we want some features that will make this game more realistic???

      One step at a time. Budget and time restricts what they can add. For all we know the window deal may come in the future. Or not. What we do know is that they cannot implement everything this time around.

      That is where Steam can help. Not to make games depend on it, but earn SCS more money to allow them to not only continue to make their products but to add to them.

      And that is where we can help, by buying the game, by spreading the word. So hang in there and continue to support - and give ideas, who know what they will add in the future? (c:

    12. CETS you realize that SCS is one of the best developers to communicate with their fans? given new content weekly, isn't something you will see with other big famous developers, and remember they are only around 13-15 people in their firm, i think it's over impressive they are capable of making those sims games as few people they are. and you're right about that, they aren't much without their fans, no company is of course, but you must realize they can't fulfill wishes for everyone, now see in ETS 2 for the first time ever, we have adjustable mirrors, well that's a good start if you ask me, we might get those adjustable windows, in updates, and people be patient with release date, i know we all want it badly, but waiting is all we can do, and since the game is in beta stage, well that means it isn't far from going gold.

      Delete
    13. Yes they made mirrors so why they can't make windows? They had over 2 years for this. I really doubt this will be added in any update. I understand that they don't have time and money for multiplayer but trucks should have more features. Is this a Truck Simulator or not? Maybe it's a Truck "Driving" Simulator like STDS? Yes I have new title for this game: Central Europe Truck Driving Almost-Simulator! Sounds good for me.

    15. seriously CETS i would like more to see realistic damage then openable windows, if i made a wishlist to SCS to what to include in ETS 2, trust me they would delaye it for xtra 2 years. simulators need visible damage as openable windows.. and honestly whats so special about having openable windows? you can see in STDS the instruments move, when u do a thing, i know it's realistic having openable windows, but it's not the keybreaker in simulator, for me atleast.

    Dear SCS.
    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.
