A few quick notes

Today is actually very busy day, we can spare you the trouble of reading long text; let's entertain ourselves with a pell-mell interesting screen grabs and links...




Look like Euro Truck Simulator 2 is in really fine company in the sales charts already!

We were asked by our friends at Czech website SvetSim to help them promote their ETS2 competition - note that this link is any good for Czech readers only.

If you still cannot satisfy your fix for more YouTube clips of footage from ETS2, we recommend again our ETS2 YouTube playlist with beta tester recordings.

There are some very positive reviews of the game coming in from Brazil, if you know the language, you can read them here and here.

Last but definitely not least - our work on support for more languages in the game engine is going very well now, we have preliminary results with Korean and they look (as far as we can tell) quite believable. So we'll be looking for translators for more non-European languages - Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese... Unfortunately right-to-left written languages are still beyond our reach, but we'll revisit this code again in the future.

  1. SCS IS THE BEST.
    I think there should be a donate page on there website.

    1. I support that idea ;-)

      Although i have to admit i like the idea about a early realeased demo of the game even more.. Not only would it give the fans a chance to try it out, but it would take some of the stress from their download servers on the 19. October :-)

      Delete
    2. I too support this idea. I would readily donate cash if it would help in any way further developement, and the possibilities of dlc. :)

    3. +1, I'd donate a little!

    4. Instead of donating you can buy another copy of ETS2 and give it to a friend

    5. I wouldn't want to donate £25 though.

  2. good idea from these player:

    ETS 3, no, i want ETS 2 to grow a lot, adding 2013 trucks, map is already big but they want to extend even more and that is only a good thing, a lot more trucks sounds, horns and a lot more.

    Even if they ask 10$ for a DLC is not a problem, i really want a truck DLC and new trailers as well like i said even if they ask 10$ for it.

    1. Totally agree with you S7efan.

      Delete
    2. One thing I'm disappointed in, and always have been is the horn sounds from ETS, STDS etc. Put in the proper horn, for all it would be to get a truck and record a few blasts of it here and there.

    5. You can buy it digitally from eurotrucksimulator2.com on the 19th.

  4. If they continue at this level, the ETS 3 may be the best simulator of the last decades, not counting the endless possibilities and the possibility of DLC's expansion of territory, can you imagine an ETS International?

    Good work SCS ...

  6. I would love if it was possible to not only do 2 hour long deliveries but 4 and 6 hour long deliveries even if it meant a few stops to sleep and refuel.

    Anyway SCS is the best at doing these truck games. I will support them as long as they do realistic truck sims.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In ETS2 there are already deliveries that requires about 30 game hours of driving, or 2 sleeps between. It's about 1500-1700 km of drive, and almost hour and a half in realtime.

      Trust me, this is long enough. You don't want more.

  7. Yeah! I'm from Brazil and can't wait to play ETS 2!! Here in Brazil we love trucks, we even have Formula Truck!!

      Where are the Double Trailer,CB Radio;Pedestrians,Seasons etc. Where the Devs.of 18 wheels of Steel haulin?

      Like Mark said Ped's are in the game, as for the others;
      Double Trailers are illegal in the UK, because of the length.
      CB Radio, Seasons: These could be brought in in a later patch; it has been said many times, that they are releasing it yet they know that more things need to be done, and they are working on them now. For all these things to have been included in this release, we would have been waiting for probably another 3 or 4 years. Rig n Roll anybody?

      Delete
    4. Where are the Ped´s? i see no in the Betavideos

    5. They're in nearly every video, they're in pictures too.

  14. I found this in the first Brazilian review
    "If you are behind them and flashing light, they open up passing lanes for doubles" Does this confirm doubles as being in the? Not that I really care but I know a lot of other people on this blog do!

    1. No, it's another thing. Imagine you go on an highway at a upper speed than de BMW ahead of you in the middle lane, ok?

      You give them a high beam signal and they will pass to the lane at the right so you can pass them ;)

      Hope it's clear enough :)

    I ordered my copy from Amazon months ago, but I've decided that I too will also buy a digital download copy, just so that more of the money will go to SCS. Good luck, you deserve to make a lot of profit for the work you have put in.

  26. Shut your mouth! Only one position under FIFA13 on German Amazon? That's really impressive. But you know, something is even more interesting, that tractor simulator as no.1 and football manager as no.3 in that chart. Maybe a specific taste of German gamers for simulations? Hard to say, but maybe it partly explains ETS2 success too.

    But it doesn't matter, really. Being in top 10, with FIFA or COD or WOW addon, that's simply an amazing success. You deserve it.
