Calm weekend ahead of Storm?

We have been enjoying the the first calm weekend before the release; no longer under any pressure to push the game towards completion. We hope that you had a great weekend too, and that you are looking forward to the upcoming weekend so that you can spend some quality time with ETS2 :-). Starting at midnight on Thursday, let's see if Euro Truck Simulator 2 can stir up the storm!

To reflect on this quieter period, here are a few historical landmarks that you may pass by on your journeys in the game. Soon enough, there will be so many great screenshots and movies published from the game by the fans that we will have hard time showing you something unique. We may have to think of ways to show you something that you cannot yet see in the initial release of the game!

    3. i got Logitech driving force GT specially for this game.Works perfect and you can enjoy driving in the game.
      If you can not afford G27 get the Driving force,the only -minus is HAS NO Clutch and mechanical gear box.Everything else is PLUS!CHEAPER AND PERFECT!

  4. Thanks and conragulations SCS ;) I hope you will change the rest of old trailers (cement, benzin/gasoline tankers and paneltransport) with the more realistic ones in next updates. We will also continue bombarding the mailbox of the truck manufacturers for licenses. I hope you can get and present them for the next update too. Best regards ;)

    1. Yes there will be a demo version, I've seen a video of it on Youtube, probably the same with other SCS games, 1 hour trial then it'll probably ask for an activation.
      My guess is that it'll be released on the same date as the digital release.

    2. the demo wil be 10 trips or 4000 kilometers.

  17. I have been waiting for this game to be released for so long!!
    I've discovered this blog in spring of 2011 and I had hoped that it will be released within few months :D I really liked ETS and I was replaying 18WOS back then.
    Now, after all this time it's being released but I don't have a pc at the moment. I would sooo buy this game and play it for long long hours but I guess my waiting has to be prolonged for a few months till I get a pc ^ ^
    I will be so jealous to see all the youtube videos and pics of other people playing!!! :D
    SCS, please delay the release date of the game at least till 2013??? Naah just kidding :)))

  18. Well done SCS team, this is very good news, you all deserve a little break from the pressure you have all been under, its a shame about STEAM not really getting behind you, but who misses the train, misses the train. Still you managed to get ORIGIN in the bag so it hasnt been a complete kick in the balls.

    Nice pictures, just like you say i cant wait to start trucking next week, im even going to get me a few beers and truck right on as its the only time the old saucers cant nick me for DD :)

    Thank you all for making this game i hope you get your money back with a massive profit so that you do more games for us purchasers and thank you for keeping us all informed on the blog near enough on a daily basis.

    GOOD LUCK

    Remember TEAM

    If all else fails, call in the Jamacains :)

  20. ==================================
    hello scs,

    in my opinion you should release an add-on pack with
    a map extension, new ai traffic vehicles and some
    older truck and trailer models.

    another add-on pack could contain new buildings, models, movers
    and prefabs for modders.

    i would pay 9,99 EUR for each pack

    best regards

  26. I love historical landmarks. It's our European heritage and true treasure, above everything else. Thanks for not forgetting them.

    I understand that many people rather asking for truck functions, precise models, new trailers. It's game about trucking, in first grade, and of course it's important to be focused on that. But for me, it would be boring to drive realistic model in anonymous virtual land. That's why I did not enjoyed first ETS too much. So thank you for every single unique (not only historical) building, thank you for effort with national road signs, for road network more matching reality (I think it almost can't be better with this scale of map) and everything helping recognize in which country now I am.

  28. I'm going to buy ETS2 from the SCS website on friday morning and then I will buy the DVD version when my local Gamestop gets it in stock. The reason I am going to buy two copies is to show my support to SCS and hopefully fund whatever is coming in the future. I cant wait to play countless hours of ETS2 and my brother will have fun with it too when he comes over to visit. He loves playing Scania Truck driving Simulator when he comes over.

    1. Go to youtube and search for "How to back up a tractor trailer" by "jimscee" (and there are other videos. My parking skills in Scania truck sim. are way much better using only side mirrors.I have been doing this because in ETS2 if you don't park well, extra points for experience will not be given to you.

    2. Really like the double trailers... Are they in game at all?

      Delete
    3. if you'd read first anonymous "Just came back from playing Beta at my friends house. Really like the double trailers but backing is still very hard for me :)" you'd get that his friend has beta-version (so lucky to be able and play it to check for problems in the game) and that he did spend time driving doubles but finds it hard to drive in reverse (=> if not in game, he wouldn't know how hard it would be, so yes in game)

    15. I think the same as the anom above( 6:11 PM), we did not have a word since they said that doubles could be in-game more than a year and a half ago; needed someone trolling for us to have some information about it (literally, a word) and it isn't due to the lack of interest, as every post there is people asking about doubles (and spamming, of course).

    16. Yeah they obviously read the blog and have no doubt seen the many people say Is there doubles but still they don't.

  38. Hello SCS, guys!
    I have an ideea for the game. Now when you're using Cruise Control and you are on a hill if you set the speed to 50 km/h the truck will go over that speed. It would be nice to make the truck to auto brake when the speed is over the cruise control set limit, this way you can't overspeed, break law and be punshied.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would like to see this too

      Delete
    2. But is that realistic?
      I don't know, I've never driven a car with cruise control...

      Delete
    3. That wouldn't be realistic at all dude

      Delete
    4. Using cruise control would not really work. But in some new cars and some trucks there is an option to set the speed. For example if you are entering a 40mph zone, you can set the speed to 40mph and then if you try and go over that speed the computer in the vehicle will not let you accelerate. Once out of the 40 zone, you can then either set a faster speed or turn it off. Maybe that is some thing SCS could add as part of a DLC ?

      Delete
    5. Thats called a automatic retarder. Turn it on an brake loose to set max speed.

      Delete
    6. It is called cruise control with speed limiter. Google it for more details. Comes on a lot of new cars now, and is increasingly being seen on trucks. I know it is on the Scania R730 as I have been driving one for the past three weeks.

    I have been looking at some BETA gameplays from ETS2, and what i have noticed is that you arent able to put on side stacks on the 6x2 and the 6x4 chassi's. I would love to see that in the full game, can you please make that happen? :) otherwise i would feel a bit disappointed.
    But i will be buying it eny ways

  50. Dear SCS!

    I think if you are going to do the DLC-s for ETS2, then the first one should include new trucks, that aren't in the game at the moment:

    - Mercedes-Benz Actros mp4
    - Iveco Stralis Hi-Way
    - New Volvo FH16
    - New DAF XF

    Don't start with the extention of the map at first. It is big enough for us to have hours and hours of enjoyable gameplay.

    Or maybe, you could do a combo DLC. Like releasing a one new truck and at the same time giving us for example the completed map of Poland. I may like this variant even more than the first one.

    What do you think?

    Regards!

  57. Regarding DLC, I don't want to use a credit card or paypal to pay for DLC. Instead I would have prefered to buy an extended version of ETS 2 for 60 € with all future DLC included. That version obviously isn't available, because SCS Software needs good sales first to later make some add-ons.

    Anyway, I still want some option to buy DLC like some old fashioned add-on, even if it is trickling in in smaller parts like typical DLC. Consider working with amazon, because I am willing to pay extra.
