SCS is celebrating

Thanks to everybody who considered Euro Truck Simulator 2 worthy of purchase! Whether you have bought the game in any of the digital editions, or the box version in a store in your country, you are casting a vote of support for us to continue improving our truck simulators.

Yesterday, we felt the urge to make a small gathering in a corner of our office and drink a toast to celebrate. There was a reason to celebrate - sales from www.eurotrucksimulator2.com just exceeded 2 thousand copies (in about 15 hours since midnight launch), and seeing our game high in the sales charts on sites like Amazon.de, Amazon.co.uk, CD Galaxis, Empik, Gama-Gama, Orange.fr, Spelbutiken, or JRC, the afternoon felt really special after working on the game for so long.



You may be curious if we are just resting and doing nothing now that the game is out, but this is definitely not the case. For illustration, here is a subset of "commits" placed into our Subversion database over the past couple of days. You can see that among other things, we are working on improving multi-monitor support, adding support for Asian languages, fixing bugs in our QA database, and generally still focusing on general improvements of ETS2.

    2. whats wrong with having cheats?

      Delete
    3. Hmm... my favourite part of ETS 2 is clawing your way up which cheating completely defeats. When you think about physiology (spelt right?) you want to have levels, earning money and slowly unlocking new things, if you don't then people will want to stop playing. Don't believe me? Ask the man who spent so long trying to complete a game it killed him.

      Delete
    4. Nothing wrong with having cheats in itself, but I have to agree with Mark here. The experience of working your way to the top is what makes it exciting. Just bought a slow truck with a bank loan; And I like being stuck with it for a while. The strong, powerful stylish truck is out of reach for now. And I like it this way. Keeps me interested in the sim for much much longer. Theres no hurry. It's the journey to the goal that excites me. Not the goal. :)

    5. But, if someone plays for their own enjoyment. Who is to say they can't play with cheats? That's like someone buying, I don't know, a bottle of pepsi; and then having people telling how and when they may drink it. It's bull***t. There are many games (usually action oriented), that I have bought and will use trainers and cheats until I get the hang of the game mechanic. Admittedly, it is rare event indeed that I will cheat on a driving game; simply because I WAS a truck driver, and I couldn't cheat there so why would I do it on a game? But, my original point still stands. If you play a certain way, DON'T tell others that they should play the way you do.

    8. Don't be so stupid use Cheat Engine 6.2. well it worked for me, I hacked money and levels.

    9. Mark, I replied not to be at the top, I replied because they asked about cheats.

    10. i would love to be able to have a free roam option to explore with a trailer attached , whilst not on a JOB. great game btw

    11. I like mods, I really do, but I don't want to waste my hard earned money yo test a crappy mod.

      I always had 2 accounts, one to play and the other with 9 bilion euros so I can test the mods.

      Cheats would be nice and after all, you don't HAVE to play with cheats and saying cheats aren't nice for the game is pretty selfish in my opinion...

  2. I was curious where we can report bugs as I cannot find a way to disable the Y axis on my joypad from being acceleration. There is just no way to disable, only assign it to another axis. :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maximize the deadzone for Y axis

      Delete
    2. The simplest way is to temporarily assign X axis to the acceleration. This will remove the Y axis from it. Then you can assign X back to the steering.

  11. You have all rights to celebrate Congrats :) Awesome Simulator
    Btw i have a question if anybody minds answering it:

    If you go to the Graphics section in the Options, and Choose Advanced Settings, what does Scaling mean in ( % ) ? like 125, 150 etc

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey AnonymousOctober 20, 2012 3:23 PM Scailing basically just means how you want the quality in the game, if you put it fully 400% the game will look incredible, but it takes a lot of performance, so Scailing 100% and under, looks horrific, no detials at all. i would suggest scaling between 150 and 200% ;)

      Delete
    2. No, it's the anti aliasing. Higher number: better looking.

      Delete
  12. How to force ETS2 to use quality settings in Nvidia Panel to get real antialiasing??? Why I can't set up smooth edges with Nvidia settings??? This was possible in ETS1 and GTS! I am very disappointed about graphics quality with 100% scaling. I have pc that is recommended and game looks terrible. I can only dream about 400% scaling...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. what are you talking about :O graphics is the beast, best i've ever seen in truck sim! yet the engine is so much optimized compared to scina tds. I play everything on Ultra, with a 300% scailing, however i've disabled the antialiasing, because it kills performance, and i don't see any difference with or without it.

      Delete
    2. well, i noticed the same thing too, the antialiasing doesnt work on this game :/ , the edges look horrible as stated above, and the graphics are not the best, even SDTS graphics was better, i am a bit disappointed to be honest, i was expecting to find antialiasing x8 , or x16 , but this one doesnt even work , anyways , thanks SCS for ur effort ;)

      Delete
    3. i see your point there Jack ;) i would love to add 8x antialiasing as well, cause the edges are a bit low quality, but let's hope they will implement it in the future updates, besides that, the game looks astonishing ;)

      Delete
    4. In a way, I sort of agree, I love the ETS 2 graphics, but all the edges are so jagged... would you be able to add AT LEAST 4x antialiasing in a future patch? The textures are perfect though!

      Delete
  13. Maybe you can try to change it in the game itself.

    SCS thanks for the nice game, currently playing the demo till my box version comes in.

    Never seen such a variety of information panels as in this game. Now let's see what is possible in the full version in a couple of days.

    Can you tell me where can I report bugs that I saw in ETS2? (It's only some minor ones, don't worry :-) )

    1. Here would be my guess, that's what I do, or via email.

  15. Thank you SCS! But I miss one thing, where are the used trucks, like in GTS? I don't get any e-mails about used trucks, or is this a bug? I don't want to buy new trucks instantly to my drivers :D

    1. In GTS you had a couple cheap trucks offered via email, in ETS2 you can get a loan from the Bank but have to buy new ones.

  16. Thanks for the best simulator

  17. I've only been able to try the demo so far, and wow it is amazing! So much better than Scania Driving Simulator, Trucks And Trailers, and Extreme Trucker 2 combined! So much better, so much more fun to drive. I am just amazed by the high-quality of your games SCS. The trucks all came out so nice. The menus and descriptions are so professional and astounding. Great work, great. Can't wait to buy the game!

  18. Love it! Graphics and gameplay are top-notch. There are only 4 downsides for me:
    - No Multiplayer (that's a most for nowadays game)
    - No Baltic states (again) ''
    - You can't drive underwater tunnel that connects England and Europe (it teleports you)
    - You can't drive onto the ships like you could in ETS Gold

    Everything else: LOVE IT!

    1. Forgot to add, these are huge downsides for me :(

    2. You can drive onto the ships at 'Dover' and 'Calais' however you cant at 'Harwich/Felixstow' and Its connecting port.

      Delete
    3. You can't drive in that tunnel even in real life. So why waiting, watching train carrying your truck in dark tunnel... why even implement something like that. :-)

    Really I can't stop playing it. Of course there are some smaller things to be better in next game or perhaps update, but for now, your game is great.

    I hope even more will buy it, it's worth it.

  23. i absolutly love this game:D playing it while talking on skype with a friend of mine. Man i wish You guys would make it posible to play togeather with a few friends. would easily be the best game i have then:)

    Playing alone gets kinda boring after a while, but would be more fun if i could convoy with my friend.

    Really dont care about anything else then adding that. Multiplayer and maybe adding Norway and (Trollstigen) would be epic. speacially with a winter mod:)

    Hope my wishes will come true:)

    Can't wait for the upcoming patches, and expansions for ETS2. I've been playing ETS2 for quite a few hours, and it's a blast!

    I'm playing with multidisplay setup (3 displays), so i shall wait what you guys at SCS come up with improving it.

    And it's great that the game has my language (Finnish).

    Anyhoo, gongrats again, and now back to trucking for me! :)

  27. Bug: Ha más cégnél vezetsz autót, még a legelején, akkor bármilyen fülkés kamiont vezetsz, csakis a magas fülkések vannak benne. Javítsátok létszives.
    Grafikai optimalizálás: A lámpák fénytávolságnál, ha be van kapcsolva, igen csak belassul a játék. A scania-nál is volt ilyen, de ott egy patch mejavította. Ezt is javítások légyszi.

  28. The game is amazing, i just made 6000 km with my Actros :D.

    There are some bugs and things to be tweaked but it is the best trucking game EVER! At least at the moment, but i`m sure no other company will make truck simulators better then yours.


    BTW, who wnats cheats? When i played GTS i wanted cheats too because the map was boring, freeway after freeway, now in ETS 2 i don`t want to hear about cheats, the map si so beautiful, yeah SCS did put a lot of freeways in ETS 2 too, and i hope in the map epansions they will remove as much as possible the freeways, at least make them only with 2 lanes on each side, i don`t like those with 3.

    Hope you will add more tuning parts in the feature too. Thanks again for a very nice game, i`m playing a lot :))

  29. Looks like you had a good time! Relax for a few days, we've got what we want for now. ;)I will be getting the game from Wednesday-Thursday, but right now, I'm playing the demo and it's great. You don't quite realise how many new features there are until you actually try the game for yourself. :)

    It looks like you had a great well deserved celebration!:D I have a few questions though:

    Which one's the person who writes on the blog the most?

    Who's the man in charge?

  33. Finally got my copy of ERS2 working last night! It is a totally awesome game. Thanks SCS, you deserve time to celebrate. Can't wait to see what map expansions you are planning. Personally I would love to see Spain and Portugal added, and more French cities added too! ;)

      Seriously: You claim that you made the mod people are searching for, and point to a specific forum. But then, there is nothing to find, and then you claim you are not advertising that forum, and you won't share because people will copy. So, for the majority of people out there (if not to all), you are simply a waste of time.

      Hic rhodos, hic salta. Give the mod now or rest in the oblivion of all the blabbers claiming they have / know / did / are whatever.

      PS. you need to register to download it, that's all.
      and btw, you are the reason why i don't give away my mods so easily! why i have to make mods, no matter if its simple or not, to people who only offends me and never said thanks!?....


      also, SCS, you really made a great game, i din't thought it will be this good, but you really out done your self. i don't want to start listing some bugs, or other mistakes i found... you have many great fans that already reports all those things so you cloud fix them and improve your game even more. best of luck in future project. Cheers!

    11. Thanks for sharing. No time to check it out atm, registering there is much too complicated for a simple mind like me, because I cannot type 4 letters without making a mistake, but the password has to be at least 6 characters, and must be typed in twice, and I cannot see what I type in that password field.

  40. I forgot to mention a very nice feature that SCS included in the game, i really didn`t know about it untill i played along jurney. When you drive a very long jurney your wheels, engine and grea box is damageing a little without crashing in somthing and is cool, your tire is worning-out, after i drove about 1000km my wheels where 2 % worned-out.

    @Mark: I know that, i like the roads in the UK, i just said that 3 lanes freeways aren`t that beautiful, in my opinion. Of course 3 lanes is better, i know that but this is a game it is supposed to be beautiful not boring, and when i`m driving on those freeways i`m geting a little bit bored, more country roads should be fine. Don`t get me wrong, i`m not complaining, the game looks awesome.

  59. I would also like to make one small suggestion for a fix: the city of Groningen in the Netherlands is spelled ''Gröningen'' on the small signs at city limits. The highway signs etc show the name right though, with an ''o'' instead of ''ö''.

  60. Nice to see a Helloween fan has been working on this game! \m/
    I felt like I was back on holidays in Czech Republic when driving from Praha towards Brno, listening to Radio Beat!
    I'm playing the demo for a second time, and I just can't stand the long waiting period to receive the boxed version.

  61. SCS, you deserve all the praise you get because you have delivered a game that is so realistic and fun to play, I have been playing all day today and had to force myself to stop playing so I could eat properly !!! WELL DONE and look forward to ETS2 just getting better and better.

  62. Hey, SCS! I already made a mod for ETS2. This mod (it's actually a cheat) is for lazy people. More info and download link on my blog:

  65. I bought this game yesterday from your site. Took my Fanatec CSR out from Xbox 360 setup and started up the game. Everything worked like a charm! Easy setup for steering wheel and Clubsport pedals and I was on my way to deliver my first load.

    One thing crossed my mind as I was driving. Is there a speeding limit on open roads and in cities? Or was I just blind and overwhelmed of this nice game and didn't notice them? =D

    1. there are. 50 km/h in the cities and 80 km/h on the highway/outside cities and 70 km/h outside the cities in some countries

  73. Game is awsome but i have two suggestions for future patches of the game.

    1. Add one more chassi type, the most commom cind of them all for eurotrucks, the 6x2 not the one with twinsteer wheels or with two drive axles 6x4 that is already ingame but normal 6x2. Frontwheels, drivewheels and boggiewheels. This is not as imprortant as nr2.

    2. Please fix the stupid useless enginebrake in the game, get rid of the b key on keyboard to use enginebrake. What i meen is please make the game more realistic on that part by making it work like in real trucks. The guys behind OMSI manage to make the retarder work like in real buses so i dont see the problem you guys can make it work like that on the trucks in ETS2.

    The enginebrake issue please fix it onestly ruins the game for me and its enough for me not to buy the game cause its not realistic at all and its just wrong for me.

    Incase you need more info on how this works incase you fix this. let me know and ill inform you and help you out to get it right.

    3. @Alex, take "B" button out and chuck it away - issue solved!

      If 'not realistic' engine brake (who even force you to use it?) is enough to not buy the game, you simply don't deserve to play it.

      Delete
    4. man tgx does not have a re-/intarder. thay use engine brake by shifting down as far as i know. just as one example..

      if you dont want to use it with the "B" key, use your wheel shifter (if you have a g25 or g27).

      Delete
    5. @AnonymousOctober 20, 2012 9:23 PM

      Reason its ruins it for me is because i driven real trucks alot and i always use to set so that the enginebrake and/or retarder works with the break pedal. But hey i dont think you will understand where im comming from untill you get older and actulay tried to drive a real truck.

      @AnonymousOctober 20, 2012 9:39 PM

      MAN TGX has both retarders and enginebrakes but how they are activated im not sure of cause i only have driven Volvo and Scania IRL.

      Those of you that dont understand my point of view or wants to argue about me being stupid, save it. Im not going to use any energy on explaining or arguing with you.

      Delete
    6. i dont say you are stupid.. i never would. there was a test/review like video on yt where thay sayd tgx does not have retarder nor intader, so i was thinking its just the engine by downshifting.. my bad..

      i would really be intressted why you dont like the "B" key or whats your problem with it. i think i dont understood your first post 100%. sry.

      but yeah ok if you dont want you dont have to explain it, i hope scs understood what your saying.

      greatings

      Delete
    7. The reason why i dont like the b key or just press any key for enginebrake or retarder, its simply because its not that way it works in real trucks or buses to be spesific.

      Take the Volvo for example you have the handler with the + sign in the O with () thats the engine/retarder brake handler. You have 0,A,1,2,3,B
      where 0 is completly off, A is so it works with cruise controll or whene you use the service brakes (aka the brake pedal). 1,2 and 3 is manually activating it to either slow down or hold the truck back whene going downhill, where 1 is 30% 2 is 70% and 3 is 100% braking power. B is a special brake program for Volvo's With I-Shift gearbox. I tried the b funtion on a real volvo fh and its like hitting a brickwall almost instant stop.

      you can read more about it here:

  76. Great game, have been waiting since I first heard it was announced. I've been loving it since I bought it on its release. However I've encountered an odd bug, and I've tried many different things to try and fix it but to no avail. The problem I speak of is that the keyboard commands for looking left and right do not work in the game. I'm wondering if because a lot of people play this game with TrackIR that this might have been overlooked on the keyboard side?

  79. You can add radio whatever you want. You just need to go to: Documents/Euro Truck Simulator 2/ and open file live_streams. Then you need to search source of radio, you like to add. Then, write something like this:
    stream_data[62]: "http://radio.m-1.fm/m1/mp3.m3u|M-1 Lithuania"
    Here i added to the game M-1 Lithuania. And it's works :D

    I found... cracked version, just to try, how the game looks. So... I think, that game is...
    AMAZING.

    3. Do you not understand, that "... just to try, how the game looks."; is what the DEMO IS FOR! Good god, why do people not understand this, or are people just lying to cover up their piracy? I can understand doing something like that if the game doesn't have a demo, but when there is a very flexible demo available...
      I'm not saying your a liar, and maybe you couldn't download the demo, but you have to admit, it doesn't look good, and it is unbelievably disrespectful to SCS to announce you're pirating their game on THEIR OWN BLOG. What the **** is wrong with you people??

  82. Hello;
    Thanks for the great game, I am playing demo digital version (1.1.1) and have encountered one bug:
    When my truck is damaged and need to be repaired, when I press F7 and call a service center, they charge me but they don't fix it, even if I called service center again the same thing happens, what really works is going to the green marker inside the service center to fix it fully.
    Anyhow, have fun, celebrate, and take a vacation, YOU guys deserve it.
    P.S. I am missing times when every morning the first thing I do was checking your blog to see how ETS2 is doing and when it will be released.
    Regards..

    1. "Call Service" thingy is just if you're stuck, flipped, or can't move when they TOW you to a service station, but don't fix your truck, you need to go to the green marker and go "inside" the service station.

  83. I don`t know if it is an AI bug or not, but i was on a country road and the AI was in an overtake, he didn`t had time to enter on his lane so i braked but he went in me without braking.

    And i found a few bugs, sometimes when you are switching between cameras you hear in cabin the outside noise but if you switch back to 2 and then to 1 will fix this.
