The Power of Community #3

We have used the title "Power of Community" twice already on this blog, but it's very fitting to use it again.

First time around, it was to in the case of a member of the truck sims fan community helping us find a publisher in Brazil. Trying alone, we were not lucky enough to identify any company interested in distribution of our games there. Fortunately, players of our games often know way more than we do, especially when it comes to local market conditions, so the recommendation to approach Tech Dealer was spot on. After releasing 3 games though them already, we have freshly signed ETS2 with them now, too.

When we used the title again, it was to comment on the incredible uptake of crowd-sourced translation of Trucks & Trailers though GetLocalization. It was a great experience, too, we have since used GetLocalization.com again and again, most recently for Euro Truck Simulator 2. The game is at the moment fully translated into over 20 languages, and more are in the works. For one of the upcoming game updates, we hope to be ready with utf-8 support, being able to localize the game into even more languages. Our programmers are currently working on this, also inspired by the help of community and the chance to offer the game in native language to even more of our fans.

Now for the third time we felt the title was needed, we have some interesting development in the truck brand licensing area!

Since last week, we have received e-mails from three truck manufacturers inquiring about our game. It seems to have been the result of a group of our fans bombarding their facebook pages with a campaign to license their brand to ETS2 (or so we understand) - it was loud enough to attract their attention. We tried to approach all truck manufacturers over the past 3 years, and mostly it wasn't really a problem that we were refused. Actually it was the problem of not being noticed at all, not being able to reach the level of decision makers in the companies. Now it seems that where we have not succeeded, you guys managed to make them raise their ears and notice our game. Nothing is to be taken for granted, the discussions are at very early stages, but with a bit of luck there is a chance for 3 more vehicles in our game getting the proper name and brand in future ETS2 updates.

Not everything works as a charm though. We have also been trying to use the power of the fan community to get noticed by Valve, the company behind Steam, on the Euro Truck Simulator 2 Greenlight campaign. Unfortunately so far this was not a success, the game is now lingering at #43 on Greenlight, actually losing a couple of places in the race since last week. Perhaps when the demo is out on October 19th, it will raise awareness of the game by so much that yet more votes will come. Others are way more lucky in this regard, Farming Simulator 2013 did not even have to go through Greenlight and was accepted to Steam with no problems (you can pre-order it already). Maybe we have picked the wrong simulation niche if there are so much more farmers than truck drivers? ;-)

To end this post on a positive note again, let's take a look at a few more landmarks spicing up the world of ETS2!

  5. Easy answer to why farming simulator got in and you didnt. Farming simulator has multiplayer! you dont. so you will never get nearly as big as farming simulator unless you make multiplayer. then you will grow bigger:)

    2. Multiplayer is not needed to make a great game.. but I have to agree with this one. Steam likes multiplayer games more.

      Anyway, very good news. I would like to see these 3 licences in the upcoming patch :) .

      Delete
    3. Agree to this as well.

      Both Farming Simulator 2008 and 2009 did fairly well, due to the vast amount of mods (for 2009 at least) Then 2011 came out with multiplayer as well.

      Mods and Multiplayer are the keywords here!

      ETS2 is likely a great game, but I want to share my experience with my friends!

      Delete
    4. SPOT ON, for sure it has something to do with MP.
      Me and my son has already bought FS2013 and looking forward to several hundred hours together as we did in Farming Simulator 2011. Really wish we could do the same in ETS2.

      Delete
    5. I think it has more to do with their publisher being Focus Home Interactive. They currently have 38 games on Steam. It's probably a lot easier to get a game approved if you already have games on Steam. SCS Soft just needs to get their first game approved to get their foot in the door, and we might get a whole bunch of other SCS sims that follow.

    6. How can you multiplayer in a truck sim? You see another truck that looks like AI but is actually a real person.. What's the big deal?

    7. I think it would be better to just add convoy missions to ETS 3, you won't have people ramming you, and you'll never have to wait for people to be online or have internet problems.

  7. Scs software You want to know why you didn't get on steam.

    simple no MP unlike farming sim has. tho your really going have to make a Deep real life truck simulator. or Rename your MP game to Trucker's world. so if people want to load trailers up they can use forklift's ect. container forklift type things and tighten p your trailer loads. and the other type to get them off trains so you load them onto trucks. dispatching type option were people message truckers to tell them where the cargo goes. a MMO simulator like that will get you on steamlight! use the kickstarter project. to gain the fund for MP!. i mean honestly SCS answer this. how many more eurotruck games can you make without changing stuff deeply?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No it is because of the Farming Simulator community and the things you can do in game like plough/roll/harvest/bailing/load bails/planting etc etc and the sheer amount of mods for the game. Multiplayer on Farming simulator is pretty terrible if you have tried it it is very laggy because thee is no dedicated servers

      Delete
    2. Laggy multiplayer?

      Must be because the majority of the community in Farming Simulator are 12 year olds on a dated laptop.

      Try running the game on a decent gaming rig with a decent internet speed and you will see how well it runs.

      Delete
    3. @James and first reacting anonymous
      I think both of you are partly right. I'm not big sypathizer of multiplayer (unless it's a strategy game), but I agree Steam community almost expect multiplayer. Maybe more then zombies. :-D Second thing is about... well, let's call it roleplay. About things giving feeling you're really in. I did not tried Farming Simulator series, but I know older similar titles and variety of things you can do is usually wide and pretty deep. No wonder that people who play both type of games would love to load own trailer with forklift, see a crane moving container from train or ship onto bed, clean vehicle in car wash and things like that. It would bring them feeling they're really in. Even CB in 18WoS series brought more of this feeling.

      You know, I'm fine without these things and I even don't want them. SCS fulfilled my wishes like rail crossing, toll booths, road works and so and I'm glad. What's more, extensive truck tuning will surely add feeling you're in and have influence on gaming world. But I understand people who wants features we talking about.

      Delete
    4. When you publish an MMO (not normal multiplayer) then you really don't publish it via steam.

      Other than that i'd agree that an GTS/ETS/18WoS MMO in a style similar to Need For Speed World would be great.

      Delete
    5. One of the reasons it may not have done so well on Green-light is, some people just do not like Steam.

      Delete
  8. Since Steam isn't currently working out as much as we all would like, would Desura be a possibility?

    Also, if we buy it on the website, would we be able to download the Windows version and the Mac or Linux version as well without having to re-purchase the game? And the price...I heard it was going to be either $30 or $40, and to be honest, I wouldn't mind paying $50 if I'm free to put it on a few computers (that I own) over various platforms (Windows/OS X/Linux).

  23. People need to stop asking for multiplayer all the damn time. Most people who play these types of games are not old enough to even drive and are kids. I for one don't want to get suicide rammed all the time or cut off in multiplayer the AI looks great

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yes, but what you don't seem to understand, is that these "kids" are a big part of the customers buying the game. More of their friends playing with them = More copies sold.

    2. They are also the death of the COD series I don't even play it anymore because I'm sick of kids on it

      Delete
    3. Totally agree, I don't want a bunch of kids annoying me.
      Even without collision I wouldn't like it.

      Great example: Test Drive 2 on a console, kids ramming you all the time, driving on the wrong side of the road, etc.

      Ofcourse accidents happen, but I don't want to play with people who do it on purpose.

      Delete
    4. You guys really cant get it into your heads that multiplayer does NOT mean MMO. the multiplayer 99% of the people in here are asking for is a lobby so friends can join in. not a massive multiplayer online platform with servers and shit.

      Its when you get those kind of multiplayer games that what you are talking about happens and noone wants that.

      We want a option that gives us a chance to join a couple of friends, and people will have the choice to play alone or with others.

      So before you go against the idea of multiplayer in ETS2 please try to understand what we are asking for before you go out with a statement against it.

      I fully agree with you statement about kids running into you and ruining your gaming, but you have the choice to either play alone or let someone you know join your game, and even if that someone is ruining it for you, you have the comand to kick him out of your game.

      So from now on when people read multiplayer please think of what kind of Multiplayer we want. only a few wants MMO, and scs is smart enought to never make this game a MMO. if they add any kind of MP it will be the same kind as in farming simulator, and i bet most of you would like that, even the ones that are against it now.

      Best regards

    5. Tiwaz,

      You got that pretty much spot on, apart from there would be a gap in the market for a simular idea for Multiplayer, i will try my best below to explain in some detail, please bear with me.

      If SCS was to create a multi player game with servers, your right the kids will crass into you etc etc, and again your right server admins could kick them, once they have been kicked the server admins if setup correctly could place your truck and trailer back to zero damage as if nothing had crashed into you at all ever, and everyone would be happy, but on the other hand, if that person was who crashed into you did it by accident then, maybe SCS could implement something like a point system so that that person cant move his truck once at a certain number on that server, but make the point system a little like we have in the UK. If we speed we get points on our license and we are only allowed 12 points or 13 if the judge approves it for whatever reason.

      Also

      If SCS was to invest in going into multi player they could also add these features into the game which IMO would really bring the game to life, and bring in a massive community base.

      1: Option to work for the Police
      2: Option to be a mechanic at a workshop or mobile call outs
      3: Option to be a body kit workshop
      4: Option to be a truck driver
      5: Option to be a Fork lift driver for unloading/loading
      6: Option to be a tyre fitter
      7: Option to be a client, offering loads to trucks
      8: Ability to talk to other truckers through voice chat but make it come through a CB
      9: Option to work as a truck salesman
      10: Option to work as a Truck Washer


      I would seriously look into this Multiplayer SCS as i think with what foundations you have at present, and with some further investment you could not only smash yourselves into the likes of STEAM, ORIGIN and whatever other sale area. you would by far have probably the best game on the market ever.

      Look at "San Andreas" i mean look at the amount of jobs you can have, look at the amount of attention that game gets, even though the graphics are terrible and the game is dated.

      I recon this sort of game would resale at £45.00 British Stirling Pound with out even pushing it and to have the option of open source like SCS have, imagine the mods that would be created for the game, i mean come on that would be amazing.

      Steam would be begging SCS for the game, oh how the tables would turn.

      So in a nut shell i wouldn't completely right that off, who know's SCS if i win the lottery i would definitely invest in you and get you floated on the stocks.

      Delete
    6. You guys are going way over the top with the multiplayer thing. It would be at its best a feature, that would allow the player to host a server on their computer where a few friends could join. Not massive servers with mmo/rpg features that would cost huge amounts of money to run.

      Delete
    7. Maybe your right it would cost a lot of money, but the return would be greater.

      And the community would grow 100% plus, which leads to more money which then leads SCS to better opportunities.
      Better resources, Equipment, Labour, Knowledge.

      I bet you if you sat SCS in a room and asked them if they did this for fun, they would more than likely give you the same andwer as i am going

      "NO"

      They do it to make money for there families and lifestyle. The pleasure side comes from people on in the community like me, you and everyone else who participates in writing on there blog about there games, or company. Generating ideas, Helping them is always going to help us as the purchaser.

      So who knows these ideas may be the next big bang they release, but then they might just say oh well, we've made our cash on the truck games lets make a game for young children where they can pop balloons.

      So i am a great believer of speak now or ever hold your piece.

    1. Really no, despite it has word "Simulator" in title, ETS2 is primarily a game. Don't be confused with Flight Simulator title, it's also primarily a game, and very good game, but still far away from reality. If you want to buy road vehicle simulator, be prepared to spend tens thousands dollars.

      Second, ETS2 is focused on tractor+trailer configuration. It's obvious. You are right that truck you posted is common too, probably your father or uncle drive this type of truck so you're unhappy it's not in ETS2, but it's not in possible to do everything. There is nothing 100% perfect in this world.

    2. Actually, if I remember correctly, SCS did once have the "other" C+E configuration in their Valusoft games. I can't say which (because I can't remember, it was years ago), but I always remember I hated them... They were so annoying to steer

    2. Tbh, it's not that difficult to make your own. All you need is about £100 to buy the actual wheel, then probably another £50-75 for the electronics, and probably another £100 to house the wheel and electronics. Then start the whole process again with the pedals, and again for the gearshift. So, probably looking at around £750-1000. Do you really want to pay that, plus the markup that a manufacturer and vendor would put on it. Be serious, I know these prices because I looked into making one; not just for ETS, 18Wos, et al, but also for Omnibus as well. It's just not economically feasible.

    3. I'm not expert in electronics, but I suppose generic Windows drivers may will not work with home-made controller like that...? Well maybe there is way how to made a simple home-made joystick, but I can't imagine wheel, pedals and gearshift.

  34. Put it this way, I have a GTS, ETS, Farming S 2011, Agricultural Simulator 2011, T & T you gave me, all originals you gave and a demo SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator,... Farming Sim 2011 is nothing special but it has multiplayer, even in the new part of it is improved graphics and added some vehicles and tools but that's it, and again there is multiplayer, so ... ETS 2'll definitely buy whatever that was released in ETS2 can see a difference in improving although in my opinion I'd have a lot more to add it to the game even better, for example, they have a problem in FS2011, I think they put medium or minimum PC configuration for the middle .... But when it comes to the fact that you have a little more than 40% of the tools on the map FPS really start to decline because the CPU jumps to over 80% or even 90% do not speak about setting the graphics because almost all the low, unless you have a lot of , a much stronger configuration of the PC, which means that you can not play the game with all the tools on the map and you feel like you lag a lot.

    You will make it on steam, i bet. If not now then after release if you add something to the demo or release version that directs players to vote for ETS2.

    Since you mentioned Farming Simulator anyway, you should switch scripting language to Lua which is nowadays in a lot of games (including all GIANTS games like farming simulator).

  41. Farming simulator 2011 was on steam already, so steam already knew the game. You guys are new to steam, that might explain the situation.

    I disagree with "The game is at the moment fully translated into over 20 languages". While watching a youtube video i found a lot of mistakes made in the dutch translation.
    I've send an message to the uploader, and he changed it.

    5. Some of you guys aree so ungreatful. Its not laziness that stuff like that isnt added. They are a very small team and it takes time , money and resources to add stuff like that. SCS isnt as rich as other games developers and they had a time restriction before they ran out of money> Also I am sure that the truck companies that allowed their trucks in the game had a restriction on SCS so that they can not show real damage to their trucks in the contract.

      before criticising SCS you should research games development. I can tell you its not as simple as some of you think it is.

  65. My idea was, instead of greenlight is better to put the demo of game and than by viewing amount of people who has downloaded the demo you can decide to put or not the game in your sales, of course this suggestion is for steam not for you.
    anyway I wanted to buy it on origin but they added tax on actual price, so at this point I prefeare steam, if you will release demo i will check if it is ok on my macbook 2008, and if it's running o.k than i will purchase it for sure

  68. This is totally unrelated to Euro truck simulator 2 but I was wondering if anybody could help. I have a Fanatec GT3 RS V2 wheel and Fanatec CSR Elite pedals. I have the pedals hard mounted to my cockpit (This is where the problem starts).

    So my problem is I think the lead that allows me to connect the pedals directly to my wheel is after coming loose under the pedals because they dont work when I have them connected to my wheel but they work if they are connected directly into my computer Via USB. Its a complete pain to unmount my pedals from my cockpit because its a Homebuilt (By my brother and myself) and its completely closed in. The leads fror the USB and PS2 connections in the pedals are plugged in to a box underneath the pedals. I also know that i have to unplug the pedals from USB if I want to connect them directly into my wheel.

    So after explaining my problem. I am now wondering if its possible to edit the controller file in German Truck Simulator so that it will recognise my pedals seperate from my wheel so that I can use my wheel and pedals. The problem with that game is it will let me select Wheel + keyboard or Pedals + Keyboard or Keyboard + mouse but I am not offered an option to use my wheel + seperate pedals. I've been searching for two days for a solution and cant find anything.

    I know the best solution is to pull up my pedals and check the connection but where they are is in a tight spot and its a total pain to do so. I hope somebody can offer a solution.

  71. SCS you have made the BEST simulator on earth those days.
    But for the updates are gonna come in game I have some ideas:
    1) It will be great if in the game will be tadem trucks.
    2) Police, ambulance, fireman's cars on the streets.
    3) Only when you open the window on your side you should be able to
    watch outside of the truck.
    4) Should be 4 seasons in game.
    5) And the damage be visible, -I know this is gonna be very difficult
    to you SCS.
    6) Be able to buy and customize your own trailer.
    7) Be able to place the GPS on the window or a laptop with the map on
    his screen in the cab.
    8) The download time should be more longer, not just go and park the
    trailer an press T and that's it.
    9) You should be able to sleep in your cab but the rest time won't be
    that longer then you sleep where's the ZZZ sign.
    10)And finally what's everyone call for, a multi-player world !

    I know some of those updates won't come in game but, at least will be some of those. Good luck SCS, after some years we wait for ETS 3 :)

      Great idea, and if they want to expand their map, they should contact the creator of the "Reservoir Map V.5", because there is narrow roads, huge bridge, etc.
      I don't know if there is already all of these things in ETS2, so just wait.

  80. IF there is prospect of getting licensed trucks sometime in the later updates, with the massive graphic improvement over the first one, I think it's a winner :D

    STEAM download would be nice but we can always Pre-Order from a different vendor.

    ReplyDelete
  81. On the side:
    It would be nice to see some more specialist trucks in the future such as maybe 8x4 or oversize good vehicles with a customisable convoy e.g. Selecting the cars and their paint/parts (such as beacons, lights, bullbars etc) and selecting the areas of where these cars should be in relation to the truck. Maybe another option to select a truck convoy with more than 1 truck but only one being player-driven and others would be driven by AI-employed drivers - objective would be to drive the truck within your predefined space.

    I once met with a convoy while driving home at night. There were around 7 or so white cars, some of them offroaders some normal hatchbacks all with beacons on the roof. They blocked the intersection and 3 trucks with parts for wind turbines - about 20-30ish meters in length each - drove through. They clogged up both lanes on a dual carriageway for a while and then got pulled over :P By the time I got home and out of the car they were just passing my house (since I live near that dual carriageway). It was a hell of a sight and a light show, certainly would add to gameplay if something like this were to be implemented.

    I was also thinking like many people here about trailer customisation, to match the truck for example. Then only drive to depots, have your own trailer loaded up (either yourself or by a computer with a cut-scene of a guy in a forklift putting some euro-palettes in the trailer) and then going off. Advantage of that would be to have a nice, smooth, uniform rig that would look ''professional'' such as this Eddie Stobart truck:
    http://www.slamglobal.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Isotrak_EddieStobart.jpg
    It would add opportunity for the player to create their own company brand and name in game, that would have its own distinct style and look and would be easily identifiable. Maybe there could be contests for the best looking rig - in game and between players.

    Maybe also an add-on loading bay and a smaller trailer hitch. So many ideas, so little time 0.0

  87. I think ETS2 has a great potential for downloadable contents. Expand the world inside the game, adding Scandinavia, the Baltic states (if not included in this upcoming release) and Ireland.
    Personally, I would like to see Norway in this game in the future with its rough landscape and narrow roads, making it tougher to play. For example, "Trollstigen" and the "Atlantic road" would be suitable choices.
    But then again, it's dreams and not reality.
    If SCS software would take Norway into consideration later, it would be awesome!

    1. I bet you don't need it. You need to breath, you need to eat and drink, you need to go to school when you're young and you need to pay taxes when you're older and finally you need to die when you're old enough.

      Also, why you wrote "we"? It sounds manipulating. Why you guys (you're not the only one) don't write "I want..."? Don't talk for everybody, talk for yourself.
