Can we climb even higher?

Thanks for the incredible volume of feedback on the previous blog post. I have taken the time to read all of it. I always do read all comments, even though sometimes it can be a pain - it's been quite a lot of reading during the past 2+ years!

Whether we go for paid ETS2 extensions or not, rest assured that we are going to release fixes for the core game for free, and we do not plan to stop just at fixes, we have lots of improvements in mind.

However, we also need to move forward. If we kept improving the game forever and for free, of course we'd make the hardcore players super happy, but while having our development capacity occupied this way, there would be no investment into future projects. One day we'd run out of juice. So finding a viable business model for extending Euro Truck Simulator 2 in parallel to being able to launch new project(s) is highly desirable. You get new content and new features relatively quickly, on the order of months, rather than having to wait for years for a new big game like it was in the case of ETS2. And with crowdsourcing, there is a chance to both have the cake and eat it - we wouldn't have to pick between evolving ETS2 and starting something new, we may have enough resources to grow SCS to pull off both.

Maximizing the revenue from ETS2 is crucial for giving us the strength to invest even more into our games. We are really grateful for your help in spreading the word of mouth and exposing new players to the phenomenon of truck sims. You are fantastic, thank you! We were delighted recently by very positive and thoughtful user reviews on Metacritic and long discussion that the game inspired on hardcore player websites.

We have made it to GamersGate, we have made it to Origin, but one big piece of the puzzle is still missing - making it to Steam in order to get the game in front of millions of its users. I have been bringing the topic up on the blog repeatedly, some of you might be tired of it already, but there are also many who keep asking for news on this topic. Anytime we mention our ETS2 Steam Greenlight campaign, we can see very positive effect on the votes coming in. Just check the graph below to see what the mention earlier this week has managed to do:


We have climbed one more step on the ladder!

I am sure regular readers of this blog who happen to have Steam accounts have all voted long ago, but there are more people coming every day. The "power fans" who have websites, message boards or facebook pages bringing news about the game are also doing a lot to help. Thank you for keeping the Greenlight campaign in focus and reminding your visitors of its potential benefit for the future of truck sims developed by our little company. Valve is going to announce a new wave of Steam-approved games on November 30, can we still make a difference? So please keep the YouTube movies coming, make sure to have your blog and facebook posts reminding your audience about it, there is this whole network of modding sites where tons of players are coming every day, there is Twitter,  there are institutionalized "friends" on services like Google+ or even the very Steam itself... all these and more are channels that can be used to help spread the word.

Thank you!

Pavel

    1. Yes, totally agree, I feel as if we are shaping the game, I wish other gaming companies do the same and have feedback from people.

  4. Congratulations, Yep for me It's a pain to read some comments too:/
    They just don't know how PR works and want everything new Added for free.
    Keep going and let's hope we see something amazing added :D even if it's 20 € DLC

    1. €20?
      The game is €30...
      That should mean you buy a game for a game, but I doubt the content is that big.

      €20 isn't realistic, I don't think a lot of people will buy DLC that's almost as expensive as the game.

      Better make small DLC's for a less expensive price.
      Like making one country for €5, instead of entire Europe for €30 for example.

      Delete
    2. Well.. People playing World of Warcraft allmost pay the same price EACH MONTH, as I paid for ETS 2, just to keep playing and the expansions are the same price as a new game.. So this could be very realistic. And I would buy it! SCS did one hell of a job and they deserve to get paid for their effort!

      Delete
    3. @Johnni9999, +1, no +2; actually +9999.

      Other companies dont provide us with such a platform and yet we do not hesitate to buy their games and expansions.

      SCS, if you ever feel grace for us make the DLCs half the game's price but would buy it either way.

      Delete
    4. I think the way that ROF does it is great.
      They offer you to buy singel planes, or single addons for just a couple of euros (more advanced ones are more expensive) but the more things you buy the more discount you get.

      I think if you have to buy a whole pack of stuff you don't want becase you really want one or two things can stop some buyers.

      Basicaly, i think you sell more food at a Buffét than at
      À la carte ;)

  6. I for one have both voted for ETS2 on steam as well as making it a favorite. I already own a copy of ETS2 but if Steam ever offers it (fingers crossed) I will certainly purchase a second copy to show my support for your continued efforts in improving this already wonderful game . Also quite excited about DLC . Thank you SCS

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i would buy another copy also but scs you guys gotta come on more often on steam and under the game do annoucements like we are now at #21, like other companies on other games are doing. you guys better do this fast before all those valve games you said that are going to come out at the end of this month. Also just joining other peoples clubs on steam and announcing there , you will get more votes. same with scania simulator.

      Delete
  7. I voted for it on Greenlight, even if I have bought the game already (of course). I don't plan to purchase it again tho. I just hope we'll be able to get the DLCs out of Steam then.
    I wish you all SCS team the best and wait for the incoming patch :)

  12. Please, tell us mac players when will we see release. Give us some news. Just saying a port is in progress for mac and linux on your steam page isn't enough. Tell me more.

  13. Splendid news! I am very happy that ETS2 is climbing on Steam Greenlight. I have personally referred ETS2 to many of my friends.
    Keep up the outstanding work SCS Software team.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The idea behind UKTS, GTS was good in my opinion. Now that ETS is here to stay, I recommend you present the idea as DLCs instead of individual games as you have initialy.

    Make ETSx (x for version) the core game with a basic city and cities (like UK, Germany, etc.) as DLCs, expansions; whatever name appropriate. More like with EA(Maxis) with the Sims and its expansions.

    We acknowledge your efforts and honour your intelligence SCS, keep the good spirit going.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Have you ever wondered why EA has become so impopular? I sure would pay for a DLC, but not for 10.0000 DLCs to get the game a bit complete.

      Delete
  15. One of my favorite things about the game is the ability to customize the trucks without having to mod things. It would be nice if you could add more options in a future dlc. For example, it would be nice to change the rear fenders or the grille of the truck between plastic, paint, or chrome, like the mirrors. Also, I'd like to see a few more rear wheel options too, because compared to front wheel options, rear is lacking!

    ReplyDelete

    1. agree with this, i like to see different curtain mods too, more in cab mods all round.

      Delete
    2. And please officially add the transmissions which are contained in the resources but not in the standard ets2 upgrade dialog. Don't forget to set different prices to the options, most of them cost 10K right now. For now they have been made available by some mod (sorry forgot URL) but i'd prefer to have that officially.

      Delete
  16. When you are already planing the next project I'd like to see an American Truck Simulator, with the new graphics, physics, new five hours driving distance map and big cities.

    Make DLC available as an old fashioned add-on when you are finally done with all the DLC for ETS2 and I will buy that one, if the DLC added new features and helped modders.
    I still think it is the best choice to spend time on e.g. realistic prefabs, traffic signs for all european countries and let the modders do the work.

    And please do yourself a favour and finally create an official forum for feedback. People can register with their ETS2 key and vote on the next game or DLC and you get a better representation of the opinion and wishes of your paying customers.

    1. SCS, can you please, please, please change the ETS to something general. Like Extreme/World/Global/SCS Truck(ing) Simulator to accommodate the rest of the world.

      Next we will be complaining to say a certain sim is crafted better than the other, please.

      Delete
    2. Yes I would love to see an American truck sim, the same quality as ETS2. I would be willing to even pre order it as well. Would love to see the trucks like peterbilt and Freightliner international and so on. I think there are alot of people like me that would love to see a usa based truck game. Thanks SCS for your hard work and excellent games. I have been supporting you guess since before petal to the metal.

  17. I wish you luck with steam.

    BTW DLC for ETS2 which I would really appreciate is one which give tandems to game.

  18. I would definately pay for DLC if the DLC would contain more cities in Belgium! Thanks! :)

  19. brilliant feedback from a company thats shows its wanting to develop and create the best game they can :)

I HOPE SCS READS THIS POST AND THINKS ABOUT IT I DESPERATLY WANT THOSE TRUCKS IN THE GAME ....also i hope that you will add FREE features to the game and with features I mean things like actual dirt on truck so you can wash it in fuel stations or so :)

    1. No problem hun, simply transfar 15.000,- to 20.000,- € to scs bank account for the design, implementation and publishing costs and you'll soon have your free features :)

    2. I cant believe people Actually ask for free addons and features in the game. I mean if they know what it takes to program a game like this. It takes alot of hard work, and if they do it all for free than SCS would be no longer and we would not have these great trucking sims to play. So SCS keep up the great work and don't worry the majority of us don't mind at all paying for your products. Again keep up the great work, looking forward to what you all have up your sleeves for the next addon DLC or new truck sim, rest assured that I will be in line to buy it..

      Delete
    3. I think they could add some little features for free, and letting us pay for new trucks or map expansions would be no problem for me, you always keep the option for free mod maps, and if you want better quality, buy SCS DLC!

  22. Hope your next investment will be a super fantastic Bus Simulator!

    1. I personally find city bus driving boring, though wouldn't mind an add on to ETS2 where you can buy busses for long distance travels. That would be cool. Would be even cooler in a sequel to 18 WoS with added Greyhound busses. I'd love that.

  25. Does your next patch include changing the weather frequency at all? I know a few people have mentioned it but I have clocked up 64hrs real time in total (or 84days in game). I have seen rain on maybe 10 occasions and in most cases it seems to happen right as I need to rest so I wake up to more sun.

    Is there any way to change this myself? I don't want too much bad weather, but at the moment I am barely seeing any at all.

    1. you are lucky...I get rain within ten minutes of starting each and every delivery..bit of a nuisance with monsoons in Europe of all places..Lol!! One would think that the game would be the same for all of us..but...

      Delete
    2. guys its a bug. if you have fatigue on it barely rains and when you turn it off it's like a monsoon. scs is already aware of this bug

      Delete
  26. I really wish SCS all the luck in the world, but there have been many issues still unresolved in past games that have carried over into ETS2, for instance starting with ETS, the modding community had to add all trailers to the AI traffic including GTS, UKTS and now ETS2, why this wasn't resolved in beta testing I have no idea and I'm sure this will be addressed in the up coming patch, but was never taken care of in the last 3 titles,

    It's good news that you plan free updates and bug fixes, but for me to pay for game expansions, the core issues need to be resolved first. I have over 30 mods installed in ETS2 just to just to address issues not taken care of by the beta testers and as a beta tester for several developers and up coming titles it's the core issues that need to be addressed, first and fore most.

    Thank you, SCS.

  27. I purchased my certified copy of ETS 2 Original. I am very pleased with the game. Just would like to request that more pedestrians were included in the game. Cities are deserted. The gas stations too, and places of loading and unloading seem abandoned. And once again I would suggest the possibility of opening windows alongside the sterna noises, eg: the sound of cities or when a vehicle passes or to the side.

    As more the rest is the maximum, congratulations!!

    sorry to hijack this blog entry

    some are releasing activation codes online. I do not believe this is legal? I sent an email to the info@scssoft.com address with the code this guy posted on the internet. Is this the proper way to contact scs to have them block and stop these activation codes if the action by the guy is illegal?

    ETS2 is a great game and I do not want the company to lose sales due to illegal activities on the internet.

    1. I believe you've done the best what you could. They check warez sites and adds leaked keys to blacklist, so these keys will not work in next patch. But of course no one can check all sites, so if you have suspicion on new, not yet known key, emailing SCS is probably right thing to do.

  29. Bom, obrigado a SCS por fazer um jogo tem bom quanto os outros anteriores. Esse jogo é fenomenal, mas poderia ser mais melhorado criando mais velocidades de limpadores de para-brisa (pausada,média e rápida), e fazendo também outros níveis de chuva como garroua,tempestade bem forte e também fazendo com que os faroletes debaixo dos farois ascendesem,os farois de neblina.
    Valeu SCS pelos seus jogos excelentes. OBRIGADO

  32. Hey Pavel!

    Since you read all the answers, I hope you read this one too! :)

    It's been mentioned here before already I guess but I think its worth to say again, so here goes! :)
    Can you (in the next update after this one) fix that if you buy a truck with a low roof (ex. FH16 with a flat roof no GlobeT.) that when you look up from the inside it looks like a flat roof too? I mean, I love trucks with a low roof, they just look so cute and I would love that the interior matches you know .., you had this problem in GTS and such too

    And can you include side-skirts for some trucks (as FH16) when you add more axles because it sucks a bit that you can only do it on the Mercedes (as far as I know)
    Try to add axles to the both Renaults too, and maybe some more tuning options to the Premium, its such a lovely truck :)

    Thanks a lot! Looking forward to the new patch somewhere this week! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Have you thought about improving the anti-aliasing (AA)?

    This is one point that can really be annoying sometimes especially in the cities. The current AA option only seems to work within the cabin but not outside in the landscape.

  35. Hi SCS ! The game was, would be more similar to the simulator if you add to it and correct it,

    1-visual damage (broken lights, windows, turn signals, punctured tire, etc.).
    2-year change (mud, snow, ice, fog, wind) for this can make winter tires and headlights against fog.
    3-would love to see Mercedes Actros MP4 as well as old trucks 80s 90s.
    4-A lot of people and animals.
    5-Car AI ride the train on the tracks, even the wheels do not turn (correct).
    6 more narrow roads, and bad with holes and puddles (on them fun to drive.)
    7-The opportunity to see their employees on the road (and track their movement on the map).
    8 The ability to lower the glass (then the noise in the cabin will be more, you can hear the sound of the engine).
    9 Stations of the service-not only in cities but also on the tracks.
    10 The ability to make its own way on the map.
    11-If the caller 911 is small damage they could fix in place and not to overtake a truck in the city.
    12 extra buses, motorcycles, etc.
    13 Dirt on cars.
    14-What would the driver to get out, and look like a truck or a trailer hitch
    15 Policemen in cars that-be stopped and fined.
    16 shops and cafes in the cities and on the roads.
    17 Fix the sound turn signals (they are not as real)
    Wipers must work at least 2 modes continuously and intermittently.
    18 The smoke from the exhaust.
    19-Ability peredvigatsya the cabin.
    20 Heavy load is low speed and fuel consumption more.

    Please answer whether the new trucks (especially MB Actros MP4)!???

    If you are adding it, I'm willing to pay for each DLC and support you!

Now I want to turn to some Europeans who complain that they do not want and will not pay for DAZ. Guys do not you ashamed? you in Europe wages are higher than in Russia and you feel sorry for 10-20 euros for a quality DLC?! SCS have a lot of labor (day and night) that would make the game better and it is time = money! they deserve to get paid for their work after a hard ...P.S Greetings Greece from Russia ))

      Delete
    6. I bet what Pavel wrote is true and he/they read every comment. But Oleg, do you read the blog too? Hope so, but... you know: it was said many times there can't be visual damage, because manufacturers really don't like to see their vehicles visually crashed. It was choice between real brands and damage model. No chance to have both. Real brands are much better for SCS's business. Damage model, in addition, means pretty big investment into their technology.

      Of course I like most of your ideas, and especially no.11 could have possitive impact on gameplay. There are also many ideas which, I believe, are in SCS's plans for long time. Let's hope we'll some of them in next months. :-)

      Delete
    7. I did not know that the manufacturers do not want their cars to be visually broken (we also do not want it, and tried to not get in an accident because it's not nice and expensive repairs) but ... in real life, all the cars are broken down and get into accidents. There must be something to do at least punctured tire or a light bulb lamp (for example)?! ))

      Delete
    8. @Oleg 12:03AM: yeah, maybe tyre puncture (or in general, system for worning tyres) wouldn't harm agreement between SCS and manufacturers. That's against nothing, I guess. Features like these would be great.

      Delete
    9. I agree with all the above comments about ETS2. Would be nice to see your AI trucks roaming around the maps.
      Having online muliplayer or lan
      Would be Interesting to see other truck axle configs, we have alot of double turning axles in New Zealand as well as B-trains, long nose cabs.
      I think overall this game is fantasic and would be happy to pay for DLC's even though the cost here would be much greater but that doesn't matter
      Adding more features to this game would certainly extend the life of the game.

      cheers

    12. 100% agree, Please SCS at least consider in next patch: visual damage, the opportunity to see their employees on the road and track their movement on the map, the ability to make our own way on the map, and a log to track each driver you hire and see how he is doing.

    13. Maybe this is wrong place to post my message, but it's all about the realistic gameplay.
      There is one thing is strange for me. I've damaged my truck on 33% due to road accident. After that engine became suddenly stop and start and my GPS have shown something like: "Your engine seriously damaged..." Okay. I've been take a visit to repairing station and fixed all, but not body (stayed damaged). This message continued to show with engine stop/start cycling from time to time. Why? Has body affected engine? In real life it's possible to swap the engine. It will run perfectly even if body seriously damaged. Why GPS asks me to fix it when engine have no damages?

      Delete
  36. i have to say that i'm not all that into paid dlc's but that is just because i like my hard earned pennies and i don't have a lot to spare, but if you think a paid dlc system is necessary with a focus on the future i will gladly supprt you guy's.

    there's one think i'dd like to mention regarding the game itsself and that's the AI. it could really use some work. that fact that cars go around corners at 10 km/h is quite strange, it just doesn't feel 'real' (comparing it to the driving style of dutch people that is). so if you have the chance to do some tweaking that would be my point of interest.

    as a fellow games programmer (still learning it though, it's what i'm studying right now), you have my full support.

    yours sincerely

  40. Loving the game. Would like to see DLC but if it's paid, then it must be a low price ie £5. If only Scandinavian countries could be added; my best mate is from Denmark - he absolutely loves the game, however he so badly wants to see his home country in-game.

    I have a bit of a grudge, though. As much as I love ETS2, there are a few details I would like fixed. First of all, AI. The one major point I have to hold is about the speed of AI vehicles. They get going so quickly, and stop even more quickly, so when you're tailing a little AI car that suddenly hits the anchors, I constantly find myself driving (at quite a rate of knots!) up the backside of the AI vehicle.
    My other grudge is cabs. Let's say I bought an MAN TGX base model with the ultra-low roof. Or at least that's what it looks like from the outside. In the incab view, I end up with the high roof, which should not happen- the roof should be just above my head.

    Other than those two things, I absolutely love the game. I fully support SCS software, and I hope that they consider my criticisms as constructive, not just thinking of me as an old gripe.

    Keep up the great work SCS!

  42. Still have no idea why people don't know about certain games unless they see it on Steam, and I suspect 'gamers' like that will not be playing a truck sim, but every little helps I suppose. Good luck SCS.

  45. I think I found the problem with drivers not finding return jobs too often...

    while editing the economy_data.sii file from def, having made a mod to it to gain a big wedge of cash, I wanted a more subtle effect that just gains a little more cash. And, while looking in there, I found:

    driver_no_return_job_prob: 0.1 # 10% of no return job

    driver_no_return_job_prob: 0.5

    Looks to me it's getting set to 50% by the second line which is likely there by mistake. I've altered it to 0.1, will see if it works more nicely...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also think it's a mistake. Probably there should be some other parameter that determines the employee, like hazardous cargo or smtg, but now it's just "no return job probability" copied from the top.

  46. and I still say ALH2 would be the best "next project" using the new game engine and physics in ETS2 on an American map and with ALH type features like 2nd hand trucks and such. ALH was a damned good game with good gameplay (including stuff like employees and truck wear and such as in ETS2), the main thing that let it down was the game engine.

    1. ONE: Speak ENGLISH
      Two: Ferry and Train are a lot more expensive for trucks than they are for cars, so this is realistic in this game
      Three: If you want all those things, why don't you become a truck driver. Although I'm not sure if truck drivers go clubbing on Sunday, when stuck on a parking near a motorway in the middle of nowhere.

  48. Some ideas to improve the immersion :


    1: A percentage of random foreign plates for AI vehicules. It's not really realistic to have mostly plates of the country we are in

    2: Virtual companies. They could have their own name, colors, and headquarters / garages.

    3: In relation with number 2, name of the company on the trucks, for AI and our own trucks. Maybe some trailers with the company name on it too.

    4: Everything else I would like to see ingame except visual damages which is not wanted by the brands are in Oleg-Verhovodoff's post.

  52. Dear SCS Soft staff,

    I have pre-ordered ETS2 box from a retailer in Turkey on 23rd of October. However, I haven't received my game yet. Release date has already been postponed three times. The game should have been available on 26th of October; first it was postponed to 1st of November, then release date was set to 9th of November, now I see that recent release date is 14th of November. What is happening?

  53. Want to kick start a project, to create parallel project of ETS2.

    The flight simulator genre are sitting ducks for new more modern flight sim as Microsoft gave the fans the finger with Microsoft flight. Can work slowly toward building a flight simulator series. Already, got landmarks and the road signage and the buildings to use. Would slowly build code for a basic flight sim I know its risky undertaking for a company of your size, but ETS 2 map got a perfect setup for VFR flying actually.

    No real competition, people have flight yokes, rudder pedals, other aviation goods, collecting dust. World scaled now in ETS 2 perfect for basic general aviation planes now. Just need terrain to scaled in lay over it to cover up the map holes.

    The software used FSX is like 6 years old and bug ridden cesspool. People will buy payware and DLC for flight simulator and spend thousands of dollars on it. The base of these people are retirees and older people, but they have more money than 18 year old college kid. Microsoft 30 year customers and threw them under the bus.

    Its just requires coding, just start out simple like Cessna 172 or Piper PA-28 plane to choose from. Nothing complicated at first. 2 to 3 planes to choose from like 20 airports.
    Do not need 100% real life accuracy at first, but it provide the pull to let simmers know the market is not ignoring them anymore. Hardcore want 100% scaled map of Europe or North America do not need that at first, but if you capture 10% or 20% of the flight sim base its additional revenue to use funds for future truck games, or improvements to flight simulator to make to the over the long term a competitor for X-plane or Prepar 3d.

    1. FSX and X-Plane will not be beaten in years there are far too many DLC for them to chose from same as Train simulators. Only thing to really focus on would be another niche like Farm Simulator or Trucking the major game titles all ready have their loyal fanbase and it would be like trying to get a dog person to become a cat person

    2. Let's not underestimate SCS. There is a hovering chopper up above the London skies.

      It's also featured in STDS extension patch.

      Between Rotterdam and Amsterdam there are passage aircrafts (looks like Boeng's) fly and roaming. Probably there's an airport there.

  54. Guys, can not now need new destinations!? Why do we need of twins (almost) best to add realism to the game as I wrote above, and then expand the map with new cities and countries (though not many of them will be 5.3 but high quality and beautiful)!? I would also like pokatatsya in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Eastern Europe, and of course the Ukraine and Russia, but ... Why do we need the same thing, you must first make the game more realistic real simulator, and then expand. It is necessary to the village with country roads including bad roads but cut corners (it would be interesting I think) :).

  55. HI SCS!

    At first.YOUR GAME IS THE BEST GAME EVER.
    And with the DLC's.All other Game Developer do it with DLC's so you can do it,too. why Not?
    I would pay a lot more money for ETS2 than for other games,like GTA or so.
    So. Do it with DLC's BUT,try to do,what the Player tell you.
    Like, a BIGGER map,more Trucks, SCANIA T,The new Actros MP4,the New Volvo,new DAF,new Iveco.Own Picture upload for Company Sign.Decals wich u can place where ever you want.

    Maybe, A MULTIPLAYER(without Sleep Timer),where you can make a Company and Friends of you drive for the company.

    Driving ON Ferrys and Trains, not in that symbol,in ETS1 we can drove on these too, why not here?

    Where is the Sign Inside the Cabin,where you can see that the Bacons are Activate?, maybe more Tuning for Inside the Cabine.

    There are much more to do,and YES I WILL PAY FOR IT ! It is it Worth!

  56. First i would like to say i love the new game engine, Runs much better and way smoother than the old game engine ever did. the physics of the game are A++. Yes there is still a few minor bugs in the game, which is to expect in a game of it's size. I really enjoy playing the game. But, there has been a few changes that went back to stone age for me. For example the lack of trucks is a big downer. I think there could have been a few different models of the brands you have in the game to choose from. Then to the trailers, You took trailer ownership back out of the game. That was the most disappointment to the game to me. I loved being able to haul my empty trailer back and getting another for different loads. I do understand that may have happened due to having a constant change of loads at all locations.

    All aside great game and i thank all of SCS for there time and hard work, Hope to see an American version with the new game engine.

  57. With all the bugs and things that have been found what were the beta testers doing???.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Glad to see you made it to GamersGate. I was a very strong proponent for getting it on GamersGate. I've also been doing what I can to promote awareness of ETS 2 on Greenlight.

    Two things that can really help with Greenlight: Clarifying on the main details whether existing customers can get Steam keys (those who purchased from GamersGate, Green Man Gaming, Origin, or direct, etc.) and whether you intend to add Steamworks features (achievements, cloud uses for saves/settings, and leaderboards) as well as workshop support for mods, etc.

    I'd love to see expansions for ETS2 but I have no interest in crowd funding and would prefer the traditional pre-order model (ie. knowing that my money will actually get me a product with a firm release date).

    But I'd also love to see a new take on the Extreme Trucker series. A spiritual successor as it were. I'd like the open world style of ETS2, combined with company management, but centering around various winter roads in Canada/US, etc., and perhaps some of the regions in South America too. But unlike the Extreme Trucker games, I'd want to see real care and attention required to not screw up. I.e., ensuring you don't go through ice due to driving too fast with too heavy a load. The need to chain up, etc.

    The game engine used by ETS2 certainly appears capable of truly doing such regions justice.

    Finally, please support multiple monitors! Being able to see the full cab split over two monitors (regardless of whether one monitor has a higher resolution than the other) would be great. I'd like to use the actual mirrors, but with the current need to scroll with the mouse, that's not entirely easy to do while also using a wheel.

  59. Hello,

    Is there a possibility scs software could make a part of the game SCRIPTABLE?
    So we dont only have to relay on if scs software expands the game features or not.
    This would also give modders a change to become creative and not only change meshes or parameters, thats kind of an old fashion way of modding games...

    Look at the modding community of FARMINGSIMULATOR and how succesfull and creative the mods are!!

    And they still sell addons too!!!

      So too solve this feature request thing u can make ETS 2 for a part scriptable, so modders can customize some features which ppl want, and SCS-software can focus on creating new games or bug fixes or buyable high quality content.

    1. You want to try looking at real truck specs. Most of them are using 12-speed now, with automated-manual boxes. There are still some 16 speed twin-splitter types, but pretty nearly all the trucks in this game are at least available with 12-speed, and on most of them that's the default. The 16-speed manuals are mostly used on heavy haulage variants.

Mnozí dospělí, jako já miluju tuhle hru a bylo by dobré upozornit z dospělých SCS pro tento simulátor!
    Teď, když jsem se může kritizovat hru, tam jsou věci, chybí v kokpitech nákladních automobilů, například, v Volvo a Scania indikátor poruchy LED potkávací světla a mercedes deska je neúplná (chybí čas a rychlost) a myslím, že ostatní auta také .

It even doesn't work good between English and German, or other two easy languagese. Czech grammar is so complicated and full of exceptions, that output from Google Super-Dooper Translate is absolutely hilarious. You must always laugh for five minutes. On the other hand, you're almost forced to decipher it to find original meaning. Take it easy, write in English. Or at least google-translate it to English, it'll be a little more readable.

  71. Congratulations for the beautiful game SCS ETS2! Do not mind paying for DLC, some of the negative is because they are financially dependent children or adolescents of parents and these parents have other priorities and also unaware of the level reached in this game and can still move! Many adults like me love this game and would be a good idea to draw attention from adults SCS for this simulator!
    Now, if I may criticize the game, there are things missing in the cockpits of trucks, for example, in the volvo and scania fault indicator LED low beam and mercedes dashboard is incomplete (missing time and speed) and I think the other trucks also .
    It would be an excellent addition to customizing the interior of the trucks with the same variety with which we paint the trucks including the steering wheel, pressure gauges and dashboard!

  72. Adding multiplayer would be great but I have never experienced that multiplayer is added to an existing game afterwards, it simply is to much work to implement.
    Making the map bigger is something most of us want, however, bear in mind it is a very time consuming job to enlarge the map. I do not think it is possible to increase it very much. Sacrifices have to be made and finish up the countries that you have started with and then perhaps adding 1 or 2 extra countries.
    On the order hand, adding more content to the game (more weather effects, slippery roads, different trailers (double), extreme/long trailers, AI companies, V8 sounds, merging companies, flat tyres, overheating engine, dirty trucks, for example) can be done without to much effort and will enhance the gaming experience dramatically.

And if all players leave you have a choice to continue where you are going and go back to where you were in the game before joining a friend.

  78. What I would suggest that you do is to release packs of additional content at affordable prices.

    I do think that all cities and countries should be free in with the game even if they were added on later. It would be unfair if we get all the core countries in and then get some more great places that we now have to pay for - it's unfair to an extent to the people living in those countries that some made it in and some other need to be purchased.

    IF you were to price additional countries and roadmaps, make sure that the add-on content will be very detailed and as true to life as possible, introducing new unseen content in form of road textures, back roads, B-roads, environment objects and new options for trucks.

    For example, it would be great if we could drive in near-arctic conditions in snow with chains on the tyres.

    If any new customisation content will appear, you should wait untill there is a bigger bulk of items and new customisation parts/options. It should be substantial enough to justify paying for it e.g. it can't be a pack adding 5 exhausts for 4.99gbp.

    Game could also benefit with some new challenges. Trucks can be shown off at expo's across Europe, judged on the level of customisation, quality of the work, performance and attention to detail. This could provide an opportunity to earn some more in-game cash for players as well as improve the reputation of players trucking company, giving bonuses to earnings and more prestigious special cargo.

    With that, truck racing is fairly popular in all it's forms. Doesn't need to be a track for racing, it can be an airstrip for drag racing or literal drag-racing, hill-climbs, time trials and driving skill tests/competitions.

    both of these could have onlne leaderboards for players to compare their results and challenge one another. Something to add a bit mroe fun to the game :)

    On the side:
    All trucks should have side skirts/tank covers with all wheel bases as well as new specialised wheel bases such as 4 axles, 8x8 - to be used in combo with a dumping attachement or as a crane - and a long-base truck, 4x2, 6x2 and 6x4 for use with smaller containers and trailers.

    I think 3.99 would be acceptable for DLC, depending on the size and quality of the content as well as the impact it has on the game. what do you guys think?

    2. ...and 4 euros for a medium size country would be ok

  79. BTW I meant 3.99 GBP per a dlc pack.

    for example:

    A body Customisation DLC pack on its own would be 3.99

    A new country/pack would be 3.99

    New trucks/traffic vehicles would be 3.99 if ever there will be any more coming, maybe with options to buy smaller trucks and vans

  80. Some things that need to be repaired:
    1 - Lack of indicator light low on some trucks;
    2 - Trip computer in incomplete mercedes and other trucks;
    3 - If you run diesel, what to do? The wizard repair seems to fix the truck but does not solve the lack of diesel.

    An interesting addition would customize the interior with a lot of variety of indicators including trucks analog, trip computer, steering wheel ...

    The ETS2 truck simulator is an excellent design that can go a long way with DLC flysimulator competing with Microsoft, but do not try to make another flysimulator, are experts simulator trucks, is a genus of them being flysimulator and ETS SCS!
    It really does not need to be very real if this becomes unplayable, keep the balance between realism / fun continue keeping parking maneuvers as optional entitled to bonus (this was a good idea SCS)!

  81. i have another idea
    if multiplayer is going to be difficult to make or even play as users may crash into each other,
    why not introduce multiplayer through LAN, where people connected through your internet can play with you, missions where you have to work together to deliver goods, in other words two truck loads
    this would be good
    please think about my idea and please comment on it

    1. Yes yes, thats the way. Op to 4-6 players.

    2. Yes it's a very good idea, please SCS look after a multiplayer, were we can play with 4-6 players team. The idea look after an server who players can buy per years space on this server for playing together, that look seems a good DLC.

    The ETS2 ai traffic and wrong signs/symbols are all working on my nerves.

    ... But this engine works wonders guys (SCS), you are the best and keep up the best work.

  84. First, kudos for this great game.
    Would you please consider a more complex management system,
    and please let me be able to sell my garage, i have some i don't use.

  86. Haven't got time to read all the comments, but there are some good ideas, and truly awful ideas. We need to "sort through" the good and bad ideas before releasing payware DLC.

    Good luck with Steam SCS, I don't own any kind of site where I can post links, but I have them in all my forum signatures.

    2. Most points are good, but i think they should make a much better singleplayer before thinking about a multiplayer;)
      The biggist problem is the traffic. You can see on forums how many tried to improve it. There should be 10 times more trucks ,they should go 90 Kmh on highways and they should overtake each other like cars do. At the moment ets 2 truck-traffic has nothing to do with reality!

    3. {Support of two screen (To see entire cockpit)}

    4. common, 90km/h is not allowed at least at most of countries in ets2 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_limits_by_country

      Delete
    5. A Simulation doesnt care about whats allowed. It simulates the world like it is in reality!
      No matter if 90kmh is allowed or not, 70 kmh is far to little.

  90. ran into an invisible barrier near Strasbourg today, damned if I know what it was but it did about 17% damage to the truck.

  91. Something i don't like is the full moon during night...i think the sky at night need more various graphics..it's always full moon...


    For the traffic,i think it's fine..maybe it needs some improvement there and there,but the game is already really great...

  92. they wanted voices for game...but to many problems in game...light slowdowns by day(fps drops)and many other little things!Just wait for the big patch and than we will see...but it's a good game,but not really ready (-;

  93. What would I like
    for each country its own companies
    own trailer with logo
    No garage, a site with warehouse, workshop, etc.
    sleep where I want it

    and they talk about dlc, how you imagine it? they put something in the room without stated!

  94. I picked this game up from a Warez site to play it before buying, not knowing there was a free demo.

    I played for several hours and bought it! It is a good game and quite interesting on many fronts.

    However, there are several things Oleg mentioned that I fully agree with, while i want to add others here.

    I drove a truck in the USA and would like to see an expansion pack for the USA, but enjoy the EU vehicles greatly.

    - Add USA expansion pack
    - Add Police (Cars and Motorcycles)
    - Add weigh station metrics where you are responsible for the load you pickup. (Some vehicles would be over weight if they hauled certain loads and IF caught).
    - Add Log Books to record driver hours. In USA, we can only drive/work 10 hours then 8 hours off.
    - More more more, cars, trucks, busses, people, side-roads etc.
    - Realistic vehicle actions from non-player vehicle. I.E. who gives way to oncoming traffic to LET THEM turn in front of you when they can do so after you pass?!
    - Random vehicle breakdowns for any type of issue. THIS is REAL LIFE for even new vehicles (Dont say Truck Mfg's dont like to see their trucks break-down in a game, it IS RL!)
    - More realistic truck/trailer, vehicle interactions. I have never backed up to a trailer and just connected.
    - REMOVE speed limiters on trucks as an OPTION to buy from Mfg or maintenance depot.
    - More realistic truck handling when hauling unstable loads such as Petrol. Petrol is unforgiving on fast corners and will turn a truck over easier than a box or flat bed load.
    - Give us the ability to let the driver out to kick the ass of that stupid bastard that wont let us out of the yard after we pickup the load or the stupid dirt bag that refuses to go through the GREEN traffic control light! (ridiculous the cars wont go through lights or some intersections when they have the right of way!)
    - Throw some crisp bags and drink bottles on the dash, THAT IS REALISTIC!
    - When vehicles flash their lights at you, make the actual headlights on the vehicles go BRIGHT too, not just make a fast flash as we dont know who did it.
    - Allow loads to have maintenance issues too, this would force a driver to stop every XXX km to check the load, just as it is in RL (Real Life).
    - Allow RANDOMIZATION of events (Road Closures, accidents, weather, floods, break downs, etc) to be selected by player.
    - Promote and partner with Steering Wheel, Mouse, keyboard mfg's to offer proven devices to be offered for sale to increase the player enjoyment vs. wondering what will work with the game.
    - If a bit more effort went into this to bring it much closer to RL, this would be a GREAT tool to train rookie drivers before they actually started working.

    I paid $23 USD for my copy of the game for an online download. I would pay additionally for ALL of the above, but that would be a new game, World Truck Simulation - Ultimate.

    I am a more realistic sim lover, Falcon 4.0 is a great example of realism. WHile some dont like the small details of checking if any tires are flat during a walk around vehicle inspection before every load is hauled, i think it adds greatly to the whole game.

    Here is my money, keep the momentum moving, dont stop development now, you are making great progress.

  98. You don't "need" anything!! You WANT the patch, but you dont NEED it. As long as SCS does not release the patch it means they are still busy working on it. Be patient, go outside, have a wlak and talk to people.

  99. since this is a sim game and some of the physics are a little off, can we have something like this? Multi-objective stability control algorithm of heavy tractor semi-trailer based on differential braking designed to minimize the likelihood of rollover and jack-knifing. First a linear vehicle model of tractor semi-trailer is constructed. Then an optimal yaw control for tractor using differential braking is applied to minimize the yaw rate and lateral acceleration deviation of tractor, as well as the hitch articulation angle of tractor semi-trailer, so as to improve the vehicle stability. Second a braking scheme and variable structure control with sliding mode control are introduced in order to achieve the best braking effect. Last Fishhook maneuver is introduced to the active safety simulation and the active control system effect verification. The simulation results show that multi-objective stability control algorithm of semi-trailer could improve the vehicle stability significantly during the transient maneuvers. The proposed multi-objective stability control algorithm is effective to prevent the vehicle rollover and jackknifing.

    if you can work out something like this, I have played the demo but I promise to buy the game If you can do something about this, some semi-trailers more than others even below of the 90km/h speed limiter
