Arts & Structures

The team at SCS Software is still very busy improving the game for a zero-day patch. Our volunteer testing corps are finding so many opportunities for improvements and fixes that each day since going "Gold" we have addressed a dozen or so issues; some of them bug fixes, some of them wish-list items. So when you unpack the game from the box or download it from the Internet on October 19th, make sure to update the game. The game that is shipping is not broken in any way, but the update will make it even more robust and add some extra polish.

Many images and movies were already published from the game, either by us or by people who were included in the beta program, and it's hard to show you anything from a novel angle that would make it newsworthy for a blog post. So for today we thought we would show you a few special sights from the game - several landmarks which are dotting the game world and making places in the world recognizable to those who know them.

Quite an effort was poured into our collection of art pieces and unique landmarks; it's always a tough balancing act when developing an open world game: how much to focus on the scale of the world, how much to invest onto details, should we instead spend more time on the vehicles, etc etc. We don't have design teams with 100-200 people headcount like the major game productions (Grand Theft Auto series games come to mind as an example of greatly executed games with incredible amount of content). The core art & design team on ETS2 was about 8 people for most of the production time of the game, and they had to share the load of building the map, populating it with objects, building all vehicles, and to come up with decent looking set of UI screens on top of it. Lots of work! (And lots of time as it turned out). Hopefully you'll find it worth it. ;-)

    1. LOL Why would you need that? To feel the wind on your face? hahaha

    2. There is no need for openable windows at all...

      Put yourself in SCS position...
      What PRACTICAL use would it have for the game, so it would be worth to make...
      No use at all!

      If you want to feel the fresh air or wind in your hair, open your room window. ;)

      Delete
    3. Please, add openable door so people can get out while driving 90k per hour, or also can be used to get out of the druck and stretch our legs, it would be so much more realistic than openable windows. Also, make houses so we can go to our home, oh and families while we are at it. And also, add childreen that we wont see grow up because we are closed in a truck that wont allow us to open windows.

      plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz it would make this game more realistic than it is.

      Hell, just call it The sims 4 while you are at it, and dont add the trucking feature, we dont need it.

    4. People.. he (and I) need openable windows so that you can hear the engine properly.

      You can see in the .ini file that all external sounds are muffled to 20% ... So I end up turning up the volume, then later I want to use an external camera, and BAM I'm going deaf.

      Delete
    5. We don't need openable windows to feel wind on our faces, we need openable windows to add realism to the game. I said it before and I'll say it again. When you switch from inside camera (1) to external camera (2) note that you put out head through closed window - this is not realistic. We just want windows to be opened before using external camera (2).

    7. Opening of doors would be cool, but only be able to get out when the truck is standing still, to be able to walk around and snap some cool pics of some stunning scenery :D For example, while the truck is filling up with petrol or before the the ''driver'' needs some sleep, get some stunning pics of the sunset over the alps or the see when on the ferry on the way to England :)

    8. Ever played a simulator with a ''walk around and practicly do nothing'' function?
      I have and I can assure you that it's 1. useless 2. pretty damn ugly (because the peds always walks idiotic) 3. you can't walk that far anyway

      So it'd be ugly, not properly designed and useless.
      Walking around in a simulator - NO


      About the openable windows
      Hearing the sound of the engine, alright that's kinda nice...

      Openable windows because ''you have to smash your head trough the window to look backwards and it's stupid'', so you'd rather wait 15 seconds to open the damn window to stick your virtual head trough? Seriously, use your imagination, if you got a creative mind every game will be more fun...

      Openable windows? I say there are more important things than that, like other things... that are part of a truck... I guess... shit like airlines and a proper way to attach the trailer, rear-view camera's, etc.

    1. The screen goes black for a reason when the driver in the game becomes tired, the blackness simulates falling asleep, there is also an option in the games menu to turn this off so your screen wont go black, but you also do not need to sleep either while in the game.

  4. Please shut up about openable windows as they wont be adding features now they will be making sure that any remaining bugs are ironed out so that the game is virtually bug free, THEN features can be added, i agree it would be a nice feature as it is on other games but its not going to make or break the deal for people and if people refuse to buy the game because of this then you are clearly to immature to realize how hard it is to make this change especially now its this close to release.

    1. 70% of the small features that have been made recently will not attract a single more user. As you don't even know all the thousands of little features.

      For me, if the windows won't be openable, I will have to edit the .ini - but the game might prevent it.
      The sounds are muffled to 20% inside, so if you switch to an outside view, you are going deaf.

    6. @Kim

      Yes, if you wanted the boxed version, however why would you want a boxed vesion if you can get a digital one? if you buy the boxed version you get an outdated game already when you recerive it, they are atm. working on a 0-day patch, meaning it will be released the same day that the boxed version hits the store, if you buy the game on origin or a service like steam, it would automatically get the newest version, meaning no reason for you or me to waste time checking for updates all the time.

      Anonymous October 10, 2012 8:40 AM

      Pointen med origin og steam er at du har alt samlet, når du får ny pc henter du klienten ned og alle dine spil bliver hentet og installeret igen, ved nogle spil henter den også selv dine save games ned hvis du har aktiveret origin skylager.. så simpelt, desuden henter Origin og Steam selv de nyeste opdateringer, ved at købe den fysiske version skal du manuelt ind på deres hjemmeside og hente opdateringen.

      Anonymous October 10, 2012 8:42 AM

      That is the way i'm planning to buy the game atm. however, if they does the same crap with the installer this time as they did with German truck simulator, then you would only be alloved to install the game 5 times before you have to buy it again.. this i'm NOT interested in, nor should you be, unless of cause you have to much money on your bank account. On Origin or Steam there would be no limit for times you can install the game. At the same time it gives an advantage for SCS since you can only run the game on 1 pc at a time. Meaning people would have to buy to copies if they wanted to play to people at the same time.

      And it is not that it is hard, it is unessesary since it already exists on Origin, so why are it limited to so few countries?

    8. @Kim

      No reason to be sorry, i know you where being helpfull :) my point was just that missing the option to buy it from origin takes away a few advantages, that you won't get by buying it from SCS directly ;)

      Buying it from SCS will most likely also be the way i do it when it is released.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Thankfully I had the chance to see some of these sceneries in-game, and I can assure you, there are many more to see on the road...

    The only disadvantage of the map I can think of is basically Germany, which (save for the improved vegetation and some new cities + roads) feels almost completely recycled from GTS - which means that the variety of the scenery there comes nowhere near the detail and diversity of the new areas: about 90% of the time we drive along fieldlands and pinewood there, while the cities also pop up from nowhere (unlike in the new areas, where urban areas appear way before the actual driveable city streets).

    I hope that SCS will continue the overhaul of these older areas, as they are simply not up to par with the greatness of the new countries. But just my two cents... :)

    2. The UK only, it's not SCS's fault or the publishers. Well, it is the publisher's fault, they can't produce the game in time, due to it's high demand. The publishers are not used to such big titles.

They release the game ONLINE FOR DOWNLOAD on 19th of October but Excalibur or Amazon have to pickup the game from the factory where the boxed version is produce, take it in their warehouse and then ship to the costumers. This take time. And this is why if you download online directly from Scs you can have it on 19th but if you buy in boxed version, you have to wait untill 26th. CLEAR?!??!

    3. Jos Wayne you talk crap. SCS make the game, the Publisher then publishes the game. The clue is in the word publisher. SCS send the digital game to the publisher then they copy the game on to there DVD and then put them in there printed box. Which is why if you look around you will see different publishers have different ideas about how the box should look. I always pre-order on Amazon, and SCS games are the only ones they do not release the same time as the digital version. I have two other games pre-ordered on Amazon. Black Ops 2 and Football Manager 2013, both have the same released date as Steam, and both will arrive on my door mat on the day of release. But just like Scania TDS I will have to wait 7 days just because I prefer the box version. Not Good.

  26. Please, in update 1.1 give us combo trucks.
    The fan community has long longed for that.
    It will give the world a more realistic feel, because you see them alot.
    Trailers with 2 or even only 1 wheel could spice up the game to.

    Another important feature is that we can have or own truck + trailers, with our company name and logo on it.
    But the logo should be designed by us off course, not one of the pre-installed 8!

      You are correct to an extent, but they aren't full length trailers, it is usually a fixed wheel wagon, with a semi on a dolly. It's basically 1.5 x semi length; although there are attempts at the moment to overturn the ban in the UK on the longer vehicle. It's being done by Denby Transport, who are trialing a new trailer.

  27. The game will cartrain ?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I wanted to share with one I think is not quite positive nuance of ETS2. Why truck traffic always go very right and just to the right? And at low speeds? It does not matter it's highway, two lane highway. I've never seen traffic truck left. In GTS / ATS this was not. Truck traffic occupied all stripes and overtook each other. And in ETS2 does not. Only passenger cars occupy the extreme left and the middle band of the highway, sometimes the right, if you should turn. I think it is very strange and incomprehensible. In real life, the same is not the case.

    Who thinks about this?!

    Dynamics of the game is reduced because of the strangeness. Once a player has on his truck abuts the pedal to the floor and goes to the left, middle and right, and overtaking is possible. But do not do trucks traffic. That is very, very strange.

    Sorry for the bad English.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Trucks on left lane? Where? In Bangladesh?

      Delete
    2. Generally the left lane is meant for faster moving traffic. It is generally considered bad custom for a truck driver to enter the left lane (at least in medium/heavy traffic).
      Even in some countries it would be against the law, on most stretches.

      When playing the older games I was constantly frustrated to see trucks driving in the fast lane all the time.

      More realism FTW!

      Delete
    3. Those are the kind of people who critisize and have no fucking idea for real world trucking. In Europe it's against law to drive with truck and buses in 3rd lane.

      Delete
    4. and if it's a 2 lane road or highway, overtaking with a truck it's also prohibited!

      Delete
    5. You can rarely see truck overtaking. For example, I live in Slovakia and here it is forbidden by law. There is a fine just for overtaking by truck! They do overtake, but only much more slower traffic like argricultural machinery in rural areas... So based on this, it is very realistic, that trucks in Europe don't overtake. After all, you can't make AI traffic, to respect differencies in laws thorough Europe. It would be madness to create such game. No simulator is perfect, nothing can be perfect so take it or leave it. I'm gonna definitely buy it on 19th, because I liked STDS and I'm looking forward to the all new big world.

      Delete
    6. In the UK, Artics must use the outside lane, due the speed limiter at 56mph(90kph), whereas cars and vans can run along at 70mph (112kph).

      Delete
  29. Hello;

    One of the very important things to add realism to the game is truck maintenance, for ex. when you drive certain amount of kilometers or miles, wheels and oil need to be changed, also this could be applied to water radiator or else the truck will be heating a lot and engine starts stopping.

    Please SCS consider those ideas as it will make the game more realistic since it is trucks simulator.

  47. Hello Scs,

    i think you should work more on make the lands look different from each other. .

    When i'm in Poznan or Verona, the cities look the same, i mean walls, houses, etc. .

    For the rest you are doing such a GREAT JOB !

    ReplyDelete

    1. I agree about that. One means to make it look different which would also be fairly easy since it doesn't take a hell lot of resources (as opposed to houses) would be different vegetation North->South.

    2. Honestly just change the tiles to orange and stick poplars everywhere and you're good. Also why are there so many Sunflower fields in Scotland :P

  48. the window will stay open for another version the upgrade, now understand why the window open, it was not going to wind in your face but when you have to, raining and you are not able to see the mirror right then open it and see the rearview able to change lanes safely think of it

    sorry bad english

  49. Proposal:
    Take cargo from the port and deliver the fuel station =

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi SCS,

    One thing that would make the game more interesting is multi drop deliveries, have 1 trailer where you have to go to various city's or parts around the city to deliver all of the cargo, then at the last drop off you could mayby take the trailer back to your original start position.

    Thank's

  58. Dear SCS;
    You made a great work of course but still needs to be improved as you said. Sooo..As a ten years working real trucker, i would like to offer these for this game:

    1- Change the tanker, cement and panel trailers with the more ralistic ones as you made for other trailers. Cuz especially the cement-silos and benzin/gasoline tankertrailers looks very unrealistic and effects the simulation atmosphere badly.

    2- Low-roof trucks has mega-cabs inside too. This is an annoying bug which can be block your license agreements. And 6x4 chasis are toooo long, trailers stand 10m. far away from trucks, it is not real. And some cabs has sunroof inside despite of not having sunroof outside :P Especially DAV :)

    3- Volvo cab should be immediately re-modelled. Cuz tachos are like a cartoon, tacho lights are even in low-end too shiny. And outside view of XL cab is like an egg... Volvo is not so oval if you look carefully its real photos.

    Thanks for your efforts and great work anyway. These are just ideas which you can make for the next updates of the game ;) I will absolutely buy this perfect game from its own website to help you in improving operations ;)

      Sorry to say it, but if you don't wan't anyone else to comment on what you have written, you should write them a mail instead..

      If you write anything public, then you should expect that people comment on it.

      PS. and if you want SCS to take you just a bit serious, you really should watch your attitude

    4. Take your "precious" ideas to yourself... All i wrote do not interest you. I can write wherever i want ok!!!! İ don't want to make SCS put release date forward. and i have written all these in mail too. You are not the only smart people in here. Read before comment if you want and use your brains!!!!

      Have you noticed that everyone else is being polite towards you and yet you are flaming like a 3 year old child who doesen't get what he want's from his parents in the local store.

      Anyway, please do the rest of us a favor and cut your internet connection, that way the rest of us won't have to deal with your sorry ass attitude no more.

    13. Honestly EuroTrucker83. You dont act like somebody thats been trucking for 10 years in real life. My faher Used to drive trucks for a living and he didn't act like you. You act more like a spoilt 13 year old with a bad attitude and I wouldn't be surprised if SCS ignores you because you are being so rude to others on here.

    14. omg guys, have some mercy with this poor little kid, he is just a kid , all he wants is ur attention, ignore him for God Sake !!!
      p.s ( not all kids get good parents to teach them how to be polite and how to speak with other people, so cut him some slack )

    17. Hmm, why your acting like that?

      This blog is a public place so everyone have a right to comment and reply to each others comments.

      If you got something personal to SCS, e-mail it. Is it that hard to do? I think it's much easier and less painful.. also you get a better chance of SCS reading what you actually got to say.

      Now you made yourself a complete 'Idiot' in front of everyone but obviously you don't care because they can't beat you up.

      But it's not about beating you up, it's about the attitude and respect you give to us. Respect me, I respect you.

    ReplyDelete

  64. Hidden roads that are not marked on the map-it's tempting for the game and more interest to find ways that you can reduce route. This is the hidden place of the road and we must recognize them in the game!
    This is a very good idea!

      Ahh, you mean like he want's to buy it locally to support a store in Spain instead of sending the money to some other country?

      Well, in that case, i don't know of any stores located in Spain that has it for sale, but i'm fairly sure you could find a random store that sells games and ask them to special order it for you :)

    2. It's quite simple really...

      50% of price to SCS for making the game and 50% to publisher who is hosting the download of the game, payment system, making the installer etc... Fair share ;)

  69. SCS,

    I am not no scientist, but if you need more people to get you backing on steam then maybe you need to play crude and smart.

    Instead of writing a full page about the updates on your blog why not just add a link from the blog and direct it to the steam vote button which will then forward you to what ever it is you intend to write about on your release information ?

    Surely this will push people into helping get ETS 2 onto steam ?

    Maybe this isn't possible, i dont know as i am a building contractor, i build properties.

    But you guys make games, websites and design technology.
    I understand horses for courses but at the end of the day, only yourselves can help push this as you are in control of your destiny.

    On the other hand, i have voted for you on steam and will happily continue to help you by posting on there as you can see here below:


    Winged Dog Just now Delete

    I make you right "Conqueror of the roads "

    Steam have shot there self in the foot, if i never had over 100 games on steam i would kick there ass goodbye.

    I mean take a look at some of the other publishers on here ???????????????

    I personally think that it must be down to more than what we are hearing or seeing, i recon they are asking for two much of the percentige of the game from SCS
    If this is the fact then maybe SCS should speak out and back there corner on there blog and on here.

    Dont get me wrong SCS if this is the fact then i back you after all spending 3 years making this game has probably cost you over 600K even though you have released a couple of other games STDS and TAT during the making of ETS2 to fund the game further, i feel you should maybe come on this blog more often rather than let the community do all the work.

    Molie


    I will speak my mind, as i have always done before.

    Good luck i hope you succeed with getting on steam for your sales to a wider audiance, but it wont do it itself clearly.

    Molie
