Driving on ice

Here is a video recorded earlier this December on another of our truck engine sound recording sessions. Looks like we are going to welcome Volvo brand into ETS2 with properly sounding truck engine. ;)


We happened to pick a freezing cold day to perform the recording, but it was a great opportunity to experience how the vehicle behaves on ice. You can tell we had quite some fun!

The past two months since the release of Euro Truck Simulator 2 have been very busy; we are not resting on our laurels after the great start for Euro Truck Simulator 2 on the market. SCS Software is currently split into four groups pushing in four different directions! This video represents the effort of the one group working on improvements for Euro Truck Simulator 2, but we are looking forward to sharing with you our plans for the other three projects we have in pre-production now.

We should not forget to mention that if you go to forum.scssoft.com, you will find a place to discuss SCS games related stuff. We are launching without much fanfare, consider this a trial by fire, we still need to finalize the structure of the forums and beef up the moderator team of the message boards.

  3. hey guys your truck simulator was so nice but there's something missing on truck's. truck have suspension and the roads are all very you know you can add more interesting thing's into that. like speedbrakes,bumpy roads,muddy roads,sandy roads,more suspension works. and also some truck rottling, jerking sound when the truck get in to some bumps. please add this too then it will be more interesting.

    AND PLEASE ALSO CREATE SIMULATION ON TOURING BUS SIMULATOR,passengers,kids etc.etc.. thanks

    2. Why people are so fond through Steam? I rather prefer the game box in my hands than downloading it... It's the same as buying an ebook. It's not tangible.

    3. What if there's a crisis or something like an earthquake? then it destroyed your house no offense, your game box is inside then it got destroyed your game box is lost forever! even if this happend to me as well the difference is, mine is on STEAM. ;)

    1. I agree. Unlike most companies that just publish a game, release it, and then disappear off the map (I'm looking at you 1C, creators of Rig'N'Roll) SCS continues to add on to their games. When they say something new is coming to the game, they mean it. And SCS, I really appreciate that you do so much for your fans :)

  19. Wait, you said four directions? That means ETS2 evolving and three new products? Wow, thats... that's great, but sounds maybe too ambitious. Hope you know what you're doing. :-D Almost sounds to me like one of those project shouldn't be associated with trucks or buses, 'cause working on three big vehicle games doesn't make much sense... well really looking forward. Curious as one can be. Best of luck! :-)

    And great video, as usual, thanks! It seems you have good time not only with a truck. :-)

  20. Parabens SCS! The game is still more good I miss pedestres.As cities are deserted. The works are always parades, do not see any workman trabalhando.Somente my truck loads and truck descarrega.nunca sees another doing mesmo.Continuo thinking the windows open, allowing external sounds, the cities, the traffic, are heard inside the cabin, give more life to the game and tiararia the monotony of travel, especially long ones. I believe also that a little unexpected, give the touch of emotion that is missing in the game.

    1. You know... Google Translate don't do any magic. Before converting a text you must learn how to write in your own native language. Go back to school.

      Delete
    2. Well in fact Google Translate doesn't do magic even if you're professor of your native language. :-D The only one trick to force Translate to produce so-so understable sentences is to write as simple sentences as possible and to forget special constructions appearing only in your language. Then, maybe even 50% of text will be translated good.

  22. I would love to have the VOLVO badge on the steering wheel - the original one, as released by SCS, not modded bu some kid :D
    I use this truck exclusively and this should be the cherry on top of the already super tasty cake that ETS2 is!
    Congratulations SCS! and congratulations VOLVO! for understanding that openness is what people appreciate and what differentiate unscrupulous businessmen from highly respected automotive manufacturers.

  27. Can you fix the interiors so it matches the exterior? :)

    highline outside = highline inside

  28. I have a few things to say:
    1. I am glad that you posted on the blog, especially since it's been a while.
    2. Please everyone, don't think that SCS is going under just because they haven't posted in a while. No, they did not take our money and run. SCS is still there like they always have been, and always will be. So please, enough of this negativity.
    3. I am very excited that Volvo's license will be in the game, because that is my favorite truck in the game! And it's a big step in creating a promising future for your company. Maybe one day all the brands will be licensed! Mercedes is the next big step, I think.
    4. Everyone, please read the whole post before commenting. Don't just post negative comments or things that aren't even true. Nowhere does it say that there will be snow implemented in the game. It would be nice, but don't get your hopes up. The game is beautiful the way it is, so appreciate it.

  29. Well, it looks like it´s going in the right way.

    I believe SCS knows what we really expect from them, so let´s keep waiting to see what we will get.

  44. Hi guys,
    Could you make a Linux version of the game?
    Btw, Valve is trying hard to finish Steam for Linux and I think this will be a good time for you to get some publicity. When Steam will be officialy released they will recommend some games that work natively on Linux and you can be there along Left 4 Dead and Serious Sam3.
    It shouldn't be to hard for you since you already have a OpenGL renderer.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree definitely! You almost write my thoughts! I told here about possibility of linux version few months ago. Maybe they are making linux version right now. As this blog says, Scs has four teams; one is on Ets2 development and from three other team at least one is making a new game, perhaps new bus simulator, one team might be doing also a new game, or developing game engine. But I can't figure out what the fourth team would do else than porting Ets2 to linux!

  45. I begin to understand SCS more and more when they let us days or weeks without any news.

    No mater what they post, there´s always someone asking or demanding for the same shit over and over again...

    I think that some guys should take a professional driving license and drive real trucks, then they could have real sounds, smoke, accidents, police, adjusting seats,snow, rain, sun, fog, dogs crossing the roads, babies asking for a ride and everything else.
    and more: earn real money!

    1. Do not forget "opeanble windows". :-D

      Yes, it's annoying for some of us here, you're not alone. But for SCS, it must be frustrating. That 1% of constructive criticism, useful/original ideas or simply not bothering messages are invisible in 99% of repeating shit. It's like damaged LP, if you remember, but made of brown material. Really wonder where message board will be in week or two, hard to say now (and wish it will be better), but most of messages there are exactly the same.

  47. Love to see where ice and roads gradually get piled in snow and hit black ice have to steer out of it. Or forced to change routes because of storms tornados or whiteout blizzards. Like the days shorter in winter time to 8 hours. Have something where the defrost not working have get your scrapper out every hour to get crap off windows. Add weather reports and forecasts like real time be awesome.

  49. You have doing a good job BUT! You have to redone the sound file, it shulld be a bigger sound file to cover all the rations in a engine sound. Like when you drive a racecar sim it simulates the hole registry from idle to full speed. Listen to a scania 141 on youtub and that i like to hear. And one thing other! If you have a trailer on it shulld feel like it. I have driven trucks for many years and the feeling that you have a heavy load is not there.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well SCS has done a decent job with the sounds - they are definitely far better than that of their older games. Especially in ETS2, it sounds like you are driving a real truck. As far as the weight of the trailer, well you can feel it. The truck's braking and acceleration are impacted by the trailer noticeably, just how it should be. Same in Scania Driving simulator. You can definitely tell when you have a trailer. And don't worry, as time goes on the game will only get better,

      Delete
    2. Well i'm not worry, just telling whats wrong. And onething you are wrong about is that "it sounds like a real truck" well i have to say you are very wrong!! And the other is the load, well you cant just try to imagine a feeling you have to been there and done it. Then you can be a good advisor how it shulld be. I only wish i can give you help.

    3. You have to redone the sound file, it shulld be a bigger sound file to cover all the rations in a engine sound. Like when you drive a racecar sim it simulates the hole registry from idle to full speed. Grand prix legends was made in 1998!!!! Have a better sound!! And its almost 2013 now and the quality of the sound are like Aces of the deep game in 95!! Your game is like a Rolls Royce on the outside but the inside is like a donky kong game 1982

    In an update you had include the option to change the rain-intensity and brake-intensity. That is really nice!
    But please include a similar option to change the traffic-intensity! The roads are to empty now! So every user can choose his preferred intensity. I think for you it isn't a big problem?
    This game is so nice! Only one thing I disrupt, the traffic...

    In our forum, there are many people, who want this!

  66. Dear SCS;
    Thanks a lot for improving your excellent game step by step to perfect :) This is the most profitable and enjoyable investment i had ever made :) Please don't forget also this two issues for the next patch:

    1- Change the AI MIDIBUSES wiht REAL BUSES WHICH ARE SEEN ON EU ROADS such as Setra, Man, Volvo, Mercedes, Vanhool or Scania Busmodels. Because there are no midibuses on EU Highways in real life and we don't see the same bus models in everywhere in Europe as you did in game ;)

    2- Please add sideskirts for all 6x4 and 6x2 trucks. I don't want to use mod for this, because mods make the game lag when they became a part of the models :(

    Greetings from Turkiye ;)
