We have travelled a long way!

When I started this blog in September 2010, I was thinking that it may take up to a year to release Euro Truck Simulator 2. I thought it will be tough to write here regularly for a year, but that I can last that long. What naivety!

It turned out that our ambition to take the game quality and scope further than just to follow a conservative plan took "a little" extra time to fulfill.

Along the way, we ripped out old physics clean from our engine and replaced it with an all new system. We changed the lighting/shadowing system completely, going the defered-renderer route as many modern 3D engines these days. We implemented a very flexible "tuning" system for truck customization. We re-built several truck tractors and trailers from scratch. We implemented a new license plate generation system, our rear-view mirrors are now much better and configurable, we implemented multi-threaded system for our behind-the-scenes procedural generation systems to lessen framerate spikes. We have a much smarter vehicle AI. We have much more varied weather and time-of-day system, all new animated sky, we recorded many new sounds. We have built a huge map full of interesting landmarks. We put solid work into support multi-monitor, into 3D stereo imaging, we have a flexible and reasonably configurable support for multiple input controllers usable at the same time. When it all started to come together, we gathered a 50+ strong team of volunteer testers from the heart of the community to help us test drive the game in the final weeks. All in all, we have burnt over 40 man-years developing ETS2 - but in fact it was way more as we are building the game on foundations laid be the previous games.

We know it wasn't enough.

Some 33 months after starting to work on the game, we have at last reached a crucial milestone. The game will at last be released this week. But the journey will go on, we have a lot of features to add and improvements to make in ETS2 and in games that will come after it.

We know that our virtual world should cover more territory. We know that some trucks as well as trailers would deserve re-modelling. We'll need to optimize the engine some more to make it work smooth with even more content.  Many truck manufacturers have gone for a facelift or complete overhaul of their product line since the game plan was set to motion. We don't yet cover all chassis configurations, there are interesting trailer combinations that we have experimented with before but haven't had the time to complete. We have yet more truck sounds to record and implement, many ideas on how to further refine our vehicle physics, the AI traffic could be smarter and richer with other types of vehicles.

We know, and with the continued support of our fan community we know that we can do even better. Stay with us!

And what a community it is already. In anticipation of ETS2, this blog has grown visitor counts steadily:



Considering how many websites and blogs are re-posting and/or translating our blog content into various languages to make it easier for readers to check out ETS2 news in their native language, there may be well over 30 thousand people following our progress daily around the world! Once the game is released and even more people discover ETS2, we hope that the community will grow even stronger.

We should now think of ways to make your participation in the community easier. Perhaps it is finally time to launch an official SCS message board, or perhaps the research that you are helping us with from time to time would be better facilitated though a moderated wiki page. It is one of the many tasks of this Autumn for us to come up with a way to tune you in better.

Have a good night!

  5. You should be proud of what you did, and of course, rewarded for all the effort you have put into this project.

    I can only wish you the success that you definitely deserved.

    3 days to release, impatiently waiting to play out, like all other fans of the world of trucks.

    Surprise us and release the game a little earlier :)

    Go ahead SCS!

  6. As Derk van der Wijk few comments above says, lots of emotions and pride can be felt in today's post. And man, there IS why to be proud. When I started to read this blog, in September of 2010, I did not expected ETS2 project will turn into top-class product. I expected good, modest game, similar to previous titles, maybe better. How wrong I was. In just one year, it was clear it will be Opus Magnum. And ETS2 was not the only one. Do you realize ETS2 is fourth new game we see born on this blog (not to mention Mac ports)? And in every previous three games, we saw new and new pieces of puzzle called ETS2. There were other surprises and puzzle pieces in numerous blog posts. I only hope there are still some pieces I didn't saw. :-D

    BTW, that wiki for research purposes/knowledge base, mentioned in last paragraph, is great idea. Could be really useful, especially if you'll someday return game setting on overseas roads.

  11. I played all the truck driving games that you SCS released, wasted many hours and was always blown away by them and from what i saw so far this one wont disappoint eater, i'm glad that you guys finally managed to get licensed trucks into the game, truck modifications and many more stuff
    Can't wait for Friday :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. The game is looking so much better than ets1 from what I've seen so far, can't wait until Friday! It's a shame it hasn't been 'greenlit' yet on Steam but hopefully it will be in the coming months. If not then at least you'll have gained some publicity from those who have viewed it on the client.

    I agree, some more community features on this website would be nice as this is about the only place apart from youtube and steam discussions where the most up-to-date information can be found about the game. An SCS forum would solve that I think!

  13. Respect Mr. Pavel! :)
    Jesus, i just hope that all your time that you have put into this game will pay off! :)
    Good luck!

  14. I already Pre-ordered the physical DVD of the game, and man am I excited.
    Pavel, and all of the workers at SCS, I thank you for the time and effort you have put into these games. I've been playing since Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel, and I will continue to play. It is very heartwarming to see that you guys haven't gone the route many budget game companies have gone, losing quality through hard times, but all of your games(save convoy, we shall not speak of that) have instead showed improved quality, and I think ETS2 will be the biggest jump in quality in the entire series. I am really glad that you guys didn't give up, and continued to work hard.
    Once again, Thank you Pavel, and all of SCS

    4. I know its "Euro Truck Simulator" . Honestly, if you were in the fan community in the days of ACROSS AMERICA there were people wanting European trucks and European maps. And we didn't say "OoooOo this is ACROSS AMERICA you shouldn't want what is native to your land"
      Blimey. Remember Both "Across America" and "ETS2" were made by the exact same people. So yeah. I doubt they have a prejudice against either one. So why should you .

  22. Dear Mr.Pavel Sebor

    I am exited waiting for your game with all its new functions. All your Milestones youre reached. I followed your blog every Day and i think its a great idea for a community message board.

    the game will be better and better all the time, but i've read all the time on german mayor trucksim board (1DTF), that it is wished to have the logistic system of the haulin game. Buying a trailer once and drive suitable cargo with it.

    The doubles function is also wanted. no need for you to bring trucks using this function, i think the community will do that job. and i guess its only the doubles function the community want. There also more things but, you have time bringing that news in the patch-work. Step by Step.

    So last, but not least, some germans in our mayor board were angry about cover design in germany what rondomedia brings. Old Logoes and the whole cover box design isn't similar that what you bring.

    Your black cover design is amazing, and promise new sales and will let the community grown. It let someone, seeing that in a shop, be interested for what is in the box. What game will i buy if i buy that. And you, SCS Soft, get more Sales depending on your black box design.

    But in Germany, it isnt so. The Box Design rondomedia will bring in 4 days is a joke, nevertheless its a shame. New People who see that standing in the Shop, will not be attentive. We in the german Community will know, what is in the box. But... Its important to get new people winning on the game to get more money for further experiments and patch working.

    I am of the opinion, rondomedia take the function of a jailbrake in your , scssoft, carreer.

    Some people of the german mayor trucksimforum write to rondomedia and they give pattern textiles back. There is no sense of community work.

    Maybe youre good advises to change the publisher in germany.

    Best greetings

  23. Can`t whait for those truck sounds i hope you can add them in with future patches. Different horn sounds will be great as well, in tuning you can change horns but only estetic the horn sound is the same if you can make different would be great.

  24. Thanks Pavel, and the entire SCS team. Applaud the decision taken in 2010 to actively interact with the community with this blog. It is great to see how far the interaction has come through (from 3 comments in the very first post to the hundreds of comments seen in recent ones).

    A forum and a Virtual Trucking Company (if not multi-player) would be great.

    Hands down on what you have done, this performance is something to be proud of. Late 2011 I started following this blog, and seeing some many things done in such a short notice is really big, and worth to wait for. The ETS2 community indeed is growing by the day and i'd too like to see more and more people visiting this blog every day because you have earned it, BIG TIME!

    I hope that SCS will grow and we will see more gamesfrom you guys!

    Cheers!

    5. I am a bit disappointed myself about the sounds. One of the many things most people like about trucks is the sound they make. I was expecting all truck to have different sounds recorded from the real truck, but after seeing these videos I can hear I was wrong. The first thing I noticed about Scania TDS was the sounds. As they were recorded from the real truck, it made it sound like a real truck and when driving it, I still get the feeling that I am driving a real truck. With these sounds I am not so sure. Lets home SCS release a DLC with all new truck sounds soon, preferably recorded from the real thing.

  35. Hi SCS,

    First of all, congratulations for reaching this milestone.

    After reading that long list of new and rewritten features on your engine, it comes to my mind a feature that I've had in mind for some time. I though that this could be a good opportunity to share it with you.

    One thing I've been missing all these years while both developing and downloading mods for your games (18WoS, TnT1, TnT2, ETS, GTS), is multi-mod compatibility. And I don't mean being able to install several mods. I'm talking about being able to install several mods that alter similar files.

    I've been developing mods for Skyrim for some time, and I realized one big main difference between their way of saving the changes, and yours. If I edit the map in your prism editor, a whole new map file needs to be written. In Skyrim, only changes made are saved (lets say, axis ref.27fh0000 moved from XYZ "27,30,0" to "28,30,1". Item ref.00102f33 deleted, etc.). So the game loads the main / official data, and only changes made are applied.

    In your case, doing this would allow users to have several mods for the main map installed, while still being able to use your latest official version with fixes (currently if I create a map using version 1.1 and eventually you updated to 1.5, users are forced to use that outdated 1.1 version if they want to use my map). Lets say someone adds a mountain road somewhere, only those new items or references would be added to the base map.

    Another example is, if I edit one variable in the "road" configuration file, and another modder modifies another variable in this same file, currently users can only have one "mod" installed, or either know how to edit the file themselves. One way of handling these variables indepently would be to allow modification from the editor, so when the mod is saved, you create a file with the changed information the game needs to load after loading the main data.

    I know it's easier to say than to do, but maybe you want to add it to the list of features to improve your engine.

    Thanks,
    Regards.

  36. Congratulations Pavel and team! ETS 2 is looking to become a fantastic simulator. I for one can't wait to get my hands on it.

    An official SCS message board sounds like a great idea! Please set one up so that all us fans can meet up and exchange tips, ideas and experiences on the official forums. :)

  37. Thank you for all hard work. Up until STDS my favourite two trucking games were ETS and Hard Truck2 (very, very old, but with great physics and sounds). Now there will be finally proper trucking simulator, with modern engine, with modern graphics and hopefully with many gaming hours to come. Videos and images really shows amount of effort to make this game.

    Please don't get put off by these jerks who wants bigger map and other stuff. You made the most difficult and the most important thing: physics and feel. Looking forward to release! Best of luck with sales.

  39. Hello,

    Thank you very much for all the work you have done. It's a long time ago when I discovered this blog... I thought to look over you again after German Truck Simulator. So I just google to SCSSoftware. I saw there 'SCSSoftware blog', so I went for a look. Meanwhile, I thought that this is not the official blog of them (you), but soon I changed my mind when I saw the blog. I saw first a message from Euro Truck Simulator 2. I was so glad to see it. I remember that there were not yet veeery many messages about this. I've showd it to friends and familiy. After a long time following the blog, we came at this moment. The game (Euro Truck simulator 2) already pre-ordered (and a friend wants to look first to see how it looks). Just a few days and then ....

  40. I'm from Germany and I know many friends how heared from the ETS 2 although they dont't like simulations ;)In my point of view the SCS Team have done a game that is as great as possible with so few people! I hope SCS will get enough money to create a "ETS 3" with a bigger team.

    I would like an ETS with little journeys to america or Australia or Canada.

    The SCS team created an graet ETS! And it would be bad if there wouldn't are some liitle mistakes, because then nobody would need a next Truck Simulation ;) and SCS could just release map-addons or trcuk-addons until the whole world is in a simulator.

    So just do your best and the people will buy next SCS games!

    2. I think America is too big and not interesting.

      I've got an idea : Siberian Truckov Simulator

      Delete
    3. To be honest, what's so interesting on Siberia? I know there is not only snow, I know there are places with virgin and beautiful nature, but compared to America, it would be boring in the game. Look at 18WoS: there are forests in Oregon, mountains in Colorado, snow in Montana and Canada, desert in Arizona or Texas or Mexico, tropical Florida, meadows in Kentucky. Big cities with skyscrapers and small towns too, six lane highways as well as local roads. Just everything on one continent. And what's maybe bigger advantage, every big city has unique shape (Los Angeles, Frisco, Vegas, New York, Dallas, Detroit, or Montreal in Canada) given by buildings, recognizable for most people on thish planet thanks to movies. It will be familiar for them, even if they were not in America. In graphics of ETS2, it would be amazing.

      I'm not saying f**k Russia. Smaller, challenging part of Siberia would be good choice for Extreme Trucker type of game, together with other interesting areas. Add great vehicle called Kamaz and it will be entertaining, I'm sure. But not whole Siberia.

    4. I would prefer Australia myself. With the New physics, it would be great to be able to drive a road train from Sydney to Perth. And with the new graphics engine the scenery would be awesome.

  41. Sorry SCS all your previuos truck games: ETS, GTS, UKTS, I downloaded them illegally maybe because I thought they're not that smooth and doesn't feel that big.. But this one ETS2 I will buy, because I have been following this blog and all other sites and I really was feeling how much you are putting into it. When you write something and I read it I feel that you writing honestly even if something went wrong you still say how it was. And I hope people will understand it and pay for it because it isn't that expensive compared to other good games.

    Awesome. Looking forward to playing the game :)

    One thing I find annoying is that your games are marketed alongside a lot of really, really bad games. There are sites specialized in "simulation" games, where all kinds of Streetsweeper Sims, Forklift Sims, Utility Vehicle Sims and all the other low-budget garbage are sold alongside your fine games. I'm sure the problem is with the publisher, not you, using the same style cues, fonts, box design and so on as the cheap games, but it really does nothing to help your sales to be mixed up with the kind of ripoff-games they sell.

    Brand management, is what I'm saying.

    3. DLC will be the way to go, if SCS want to make some more money from ETS2. More countries in the map, New Trucks and Interiors. Tadems (Wagon and Drag) maybe even little 7.5 toners like the DAF LF. Maybe we could have some day cab trucks and interiors ? Would be great if SCS set up a website/forum, where you could go and vote on a DLC you would like to purchase.

      All the big games now do DLC, Call Of Duty, Sniper Elite V2 all have DLC. They do not cost fortune to buy and they increase the playability of the game. So I would be willing to support SCS even more by purchasing DLC.

  45. Definitely gonna buy ETS2, been watching the progress. For the future, aside from patches and updates on ETS2, I would love to see a new version of ALH using the new physics/game engine. ALH was at least as good as ETS, with the new physics and improvements made for ETS2 it's time for a big, new American map!

  46. One of the problems with Steam is that you can only vote if you're a registered Steam user, and I don't feel the need to register as I don't want Steam for anything. In general, I'd like to see your stuff on Steam as all distribution is good, but not enough to faff and register just to make that one action and then never use it again.

  47. ETS 2 in live in Midwest USA all buy it when it comes out its relaxing driving unlike, most you race. Should in long-term look at getting into flight sim business lots in Europe and North America feel big companies shafted us Microsoft is one. I know not pratical at this time , but getting real terrian data like fsx and auto generating prefabs locations based on real world data have trucks and cars drive on it and generating weather in real time and season changes. Would be good long term goal does not have to 100% accurate for cities those can be auto generated based on vector data

  49. Great post and fantastic achievement. I hope at some point you do get on Steam as well.

    The Farm Sim is not to be underestimated, it has a big following and modding community behind it, the variety of vehicles and things you can do is quite good as well as a multiplayer component. Similarly to ETS, also very relaxing. But I very much agree that ETS is of the quality that it ought to be on Steam, specially given some of the other crap that exists on there, this should be a no brainer.

  50. il faudrais aussi par la suite a l'aide des mise a jour approfondire le tuning avec la possibilité de modifié l arrière du camion par choc échappement derrière la cabine feux sur les déflécteur et une possibilité de placé avec la souris les feux de gabarit ou on veut sur le camion avec un système de symétrie ça permettrais une personnalisation infinie avec des dessin que formerais les led selon comment elle sont placés

    1. Dude, I love the 18 WoS games, but seriously, calling ETS2 a fail before you've even played it? = fail.
      Now I admit, I didn't honestly care for ETS, and GTS and UKTS were honestly only mediocre(in my opinion, not saying its a fact). But from what I've seen of this, it is a vast improvement.

  53. Great post! I have bought your games before, and ETS2 is in my buy list as well.

    I just hope there will be enough mirrors on your website for ppl to buy and download your game on friday this week.

    I'm sure there will be quite a crowd trying to buy & download this game as soon as possible. :)

    1. Well actually, sometime from one pc to another (with same specification) you can have difference in performance... i would advice you to test with Scania Truck Driver Simulator's demo ;) (best way to see if it could work right)

    2. Thanks for answering friend, Scania truck simulator I do not go, I'm afraid that this either, thank you for your help

    3. If scania truck driving simulator doesnt work on your computer then Euro truck simulator wont work. Your processor is very old and not very good and you only have 2gb of ram so I highly doubt you will ever be able to play Euro truck simulator 2. You really need to upgrade.

  62. the better and smarter ai would and map expansion would be 2 great things.

    but im a bit disapontet that no one (not you scs and not the guy from frist german trucksims board) talks about at least the tinking about multiplayer... i agree with the 1DTF/DPR-NET 100% but i would also like to see that you scs at least say you think about multiplayer in any why.

    as for the ai i would like to see the ai passing me on contryroads if i pull over and stop with indicator(s).. al lot smater as you said.. that would bring the change for a "sleep anywhere"..

    the logistic system is needed too.. its as importent to me as multiplayer to be able to buy a truck AND a trailer and deliver goods with that trailor.

    and also i think you need some more realistig prefabs.. the german autobahn in stds and ets2 look and feels real bad.. maybe use googlemaps in photo mode or google earth..

    i need a translator.. my english is finished:
    wieso wird die rechte spur zur ausfahrt? das gibts fast nirgens in deutschland.

    sry my english. greatings from germany.

    1. The AI will pass you when you're on the emergency lane with blinkers on, but I'm pretty sure you can't sleep there (would be unrealistic).

      The exits in many countries are different and it would take too long for SCS to make them all mirror the reality. They might make new road objects at some point but then probably for any new content created. I doubt the roads of this current map will be changed significantly because at the moment it all fits together nicely.

    2. sleeping on the side half in the dirt on Country roads.. not the highway of course.

      Delete
    3. That is not legal in most european countries. Thats why the truck stops are in european countries.

      Delete
    4. I think you have a point about the exit, but not with the sleeping. You won't see truckers stopped on the emergency lane to sleep as they would receive a hefty fine.

      Delete
    5. i think i have also a point about the multiplayer..

      what? you did never see trucks park and sleep in the exit or entry on the autobahn? i see this all over europe.

      and even in the citys thay park like cars and sleep!

      Delete
    6. You wont see them park anywhere they want to sleep here in Ireland I can guarantee that. There is a massive penilty to a truck driver for doing so and a big fine.

      Delete
    7. The multiplayer should be like with 2-3 players. So that you could do a business with your friends. This should be the first step.

      The big server variant is other thing.

  63. I would like the idea of an SCS-forum, could be a nice central place for community-based information and discussion about not only ETS2, but also the other games.
    The downside is that to my knowledge many people interested in ETS2 either don't speak English at all or they attempt it and end up with something that Google translator would do better. But I still think a global SCS-forum would be used regularly next to any local forums that already exist.

  64. Thank you SCS for making this game, I found out about that forum maybe 1.5-2 years ago and ever since I've been following this forum. I first thought the game will be pretty much the same like GTS and ETS but I was wrong. The more posts you made, I realised that this game is going to be big. The way you listened your fans and making posts, I've never seen that before. Now I am waiting for the release :) I pre-ordered the game 15 days ago and now I have to wait 3 more days and then I'm going to play 24/7 :)

    Best wishes from Estonia

  65. Congratulations!

    I can feel the how proud you guys at SCS is and you should be!
    I cant belive it 2 years already.

    The idea about an official SCS software forum would be great.
    Now im just hoping that i get the game on friday.

  68. Actually buy the game, but I'm from Chile, has not been discussed here anything about the game, in fact do not talk about anything regarding the automotive, no idea what I can do, but certainly I realize that SCS is a small company, but in Chile, has not marketed the game ...

  69. Dear Mr. Pavel,
    I'd like to thank you so much for beeing so clear with your fans, for the constant commitment you put in this "game" (that's more than a simple game). You really deserve the best from this product and from the future ones. So again thank you Mr. Pavel and the entire SCS TEAM. Just remember that you can always count on your sincere fan community. I have to say that the wait for this game's been really impatient and destroying but you finally "completed it" makin' my dreams come true...yes, it makes me happy but I feel a certain sadness too, like when you finish to read a fantastic book that has completely captured you inside it. I'd like to describe this blog, all its visitors, members, admins etc etc like a ONE, UNIQUE, BIG FAMILY. Best Regards -Matthew- from Rome

  70. I have followed the blog almost from the day it was started (and have played the games since I first discovered ETS when it was released) and during this time, SCS has really become my favorite game developer. The way you interact with the community has shown that I am not just a walking money bill to you. You have shown that you care what us the players think and that you are doing your best to serve those thoughts, not some guy in a suit with a bunch of stocks of the company. In other words, you have played a big part in restoring my faith in the gaming industry that has been dominated by big companies and their shit attitude towards their customers.

    I thank you SCS and hope to see you around for a long time. I know I will be here for all that time. It feels like the journey is just beginning with the release of ETS2 as I've had the priviledge to enjoy this great game for some time now just to see you have really done an amazing job.

  71. so this game was picked after all on steam@greenlight ?

  72. I have a suggestion which is not about development: I think you should make a launch trailer, so those people who don't follow this blog regularly may know that the game gets released. :)

  73. Hello Pavel,
    I already said, but I will repeat!! Amazing work you did it!!! The game is fantastic and I know how much work you spent in this project.
    But, keep in mind, here in Brazil, with my blog, I will do everything to improve and promote ETS2 for our community.
    Thanks for your passion!!!
