We have to make a few trips to the post office

We are returning to regular programming at last on the blog after a bit of a pause. I was chasing new business opportunities lately and the blog got a bit neglected, sorry. There are a lot of very interesting topics to cover over upcoming blog updates, but for today, here is a glimpse at what we are doing now.

In the photo below is a fraction of parcels we are sending out these days to people from our fan community who have helped us the most with Euro Truck Simulator 2, either with translation of the game on GetLocalization.com or in our per-invite beta testing group. The power of the community is incredible, and we felt that we need to try to express our gratitude for the help.


This is a unique edition of the game, "Developer" edition which nobody can buy in stores (only a few hundred were manufactured and they are not for sale). Inside is the same game, only he packaging is different, and in this case it is sent out with signatures of the ETS2 team members to turn it into a truly collectible item. :-)


Thanks to everybody who contributed with their time, knowledge, suggestions, tips and critique! Our fan community is a critically important extension of our small team. With your continuing help and support, we can get much farther, ETS2 is only a milestone on the road towards the ultimate truck simulator...

Your sincerely,

Pavel

    3. PS Vita is imho the only of all consoles where SCS games would make sense. But still, I can imagine Extreme Trucker type of game on this device, not Truck Simulator type. Then, maybe, wider audience would be interested.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well.. ETS2 sure is best trucksim yet.. but far from perfect. So hope you still keep develop! :) To be MORE of a sim, my wishlist is:
    * Changing weather (dont need to go into that)
    * Programmable GPS/Nav. (so easy to do, yet ignored)
    * More shifting deliveringpoints (no skill in back into a open parkingspace)..
    This should improve simulation 200%... for me at least.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks, SCS!
    Maybe, think about a Christmas Special Mod, with snow and decorated cities, as mod?
    ... dashing through the snow,

  39. Well Done SCS !

    I have some ideas (maybe some of them has been written here already, sorry for that):

    What about new trucks ? All truck in the game are from 2009 I guess, there are more recent ones.
    What about taking hitch-hikers ?
    Real police, police cars...
    Tire wear ? It blows up on rare occasions and also if we don't change it on time.
    Food, restaurants ? Driver have to stop to sleep, ok, but what about food ?
    AI improvement, because sometimes trafic is very dumb. They stop too soon before crossing lanes and such. And they move too slowly most of the time.
    Interior customization ? Adding decorative items...
    Paintjob editor ? To make our own paintjobs easily ingame.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Say lads, about those upcoming patches, could there be a possibility to add exhaust smoke? Would be nice to have it back, it adds even more realism to the game.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good Idea Alfist-GTV6.
      i would duggest some "waterspray" behind tires when rolling on wet road. And perhaps : fog (without rain, dark days (without sun and without rain), seasons would be more difficult to implement... Some games like OMSI (bus simulator) and Flight Simulator offers the ability to have real weather trough OACI code.
      But the work you've already done is really awesome and excellent.

      Thanks a lot

      Delete
    2. In one Czech interview (for games.cz) Pavel indicated that real weather could be possible in the future. Let's hope it's in the plans for that mysterious "ultimate truck simulator". :-) Or maybe it could be in Bus Driver 2, if there will be game like this.

      But since the time is very compressed in ETS2, it probably does not make much sense to have a real weather there (Bus Driver type of game could offer real time, on the other hand). Imagine two hours of rain in real life, that means several days of constant rain in the game. Set in Europe, not in tropical forest. :-D

      But yeah, why not more varied weather conditions in ETS2 (one day, maybe next year, not now - there are more important things to do).

      Delete
  41. Hi Guys!
    I really enjoy the game so far, it has some deficiencies bugs etc. but if i see that someone is writing about food in this game ... please this is not The Sims. Adding the polce cars on roads and patrols on the road sides it only can take more realism in the game, for me it would be a good idea to put some ambulances or fire trucks driving on a signal in the cities and everyone need to make some place to let them drive like in real life. I think that SCS should "repair" the look of DAF truck wich looks not as it seems, our own trailers is very good idea, also making them customizable make them even better putting some additional light changing wheels like in trucks. smoke for pipes is good too. I call it my own christmas wish from SCS!

  42. Guys, i need something to understand, help me.
    When i drive in Europe - everything is ok.
    When i drive in UK: speed is 90 km/h allways, but somehow for 'in game hour" i made 70-75 kilometer, why is that??

    2. Tris is real thing, i'm not joking. I double checked it.
      This is very bad thing, cause for 5 "in game" hours i did just 350 km instead of 450 km.

      Fix this thing please, it's annoying.

      Delete
    3. how did you managed that? i just tried this on highway from glasgow to carlisle, went at 90kmh (kept by cruise control) and after one game hour, odometer was increased by 89km (pretty exact).

      how do you measure driven distance?

      Delete
    4. Yes, on odometer it was exact, BUT on GPS when you drive with cargo you will got 70-75 km (kilometers on GPS is different?? =))
      I used to drive few times in UK and cheked this strange thing.
      In Europe everything is ok: odometer = GPS

    5. thanks, i will check it.

    6. Yeah, check please, or I'll think i'm a paranoid. =)

    7. Maybe the GPS is supposed to automatically switch to miles for the UK, but it's not calculating properly.

    8. Maybe, that's why i asked to fix it problem.

    9. nope, this is not problem with units. but it's rather complicated issue so i'm not sure when it will be fixed.

      thanks for a nice catch and a lot of help.

  43. So what is the status on the update?

    Also could you PLEASE put up a proper forum already so that the community has one "official" place to get together and talk ETS2 as well as one central "official" place to add and get mods etc.

    It is sorely needed that you add a proper forum instead of using blog comment system.

  48. I'm not extremely familiar with Trucks and what they need to do as it goes for Weight, but shouldn't there be Weight Stations ? Like you need to drive over a Scale that measures the Weight of the Truck, i saw that on 18 WoS: Across America :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I suppose the game policy is designed in spirit "as little crime as possible". So you even can't pick an overweight load, there is no such thing in the game. So no need for scales too. In 18 WoS, there were these loads, so scales was gaming element with a sense. And to have scales just for being in the game... not much sense. Although it would be realistic and they could appear randomly, as in most countries the police have those mobile scales.

      You know, I somehow miss these funny elements too. It was hilarious to take an overweight load, do not bother with the scales and then (mostly successful) chasing with the police. But I understand it's better for SCS's reputation to not implement these things again, at least in game with European setting. I don't know it, but maybe it also helped with branding negotations. Finally, first ETS won the EuroTra Safety Award, so it's understable SCS wants to continue in that spirit.

      Delete
    2. At least in Germany there is no such thing as the weight stations in the US but haven't seen them in any other country in Europe as well that i visited.
      Guess that type of weight station is a pure US feature.

    -cops who drive or to perform traffic control

    1. Dude .. where in EU have you seen freeroaming ambulance and firefighters truck on the highway ?! :D

      Delete
    2. No problem with that, if they would have beacon turned on, you can always imagine that the ambulance or firefighters run to some accident.

      What's the problem is that current ETS2 engine does not know to what country certain road belongs. So you could see a German police car in France or Czech ambulance in the Netherlands. And that would look silly.

      So adding emergency cars would mean to have at least three new models for each country, rewrite huge part of game code and in map editor, define which roads (or maybe areas, in better case) belongs to what country. That's not a small task.

    3. Yeah, I don't like CETS, but in this case I must defend him. Finally he wrote something constructive, pointed exactly where he think the problem is. Lots of guys done the same thing with Scania roof or mirrors, I remember it very well, and SCS noticed it and reworked the model. So this comment must be not taken as complaining too.

      Delete
    4. High, what you are pointing out is correct for that model, however there are more then one type of highline.
      http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6032/6855722948_7003305914_z.jpg
      as u can see from that picture, this is the model they use in the game, wich is consistent with the model on the picture. Therefore it is correct, if it was not, i very mych doubt that Scania would allow them to procede with the release claiming the Scania logo in their game.

    5. Here is another one, the same model as i linked above, but this time with the R730.

  54. SCS team, thanks for a great game, but....

    As a moderator at a forum concerning this and other of your games, I see a lot of people having trouble with mods, especially any new cargo mods, most seem to be game breakers at present.

    With trailer mods, the situation is slightly different, in that we have to continually swap mods in and out of the game, as trailer skins are overwritten rather than added.

    A suggestion was made tonight at truckmods.board.net about possible folders for trailer skins, that we could simply drop mods into, and the game pick them up as additions rather than overwrites. Is this even possible to implement?

    Keep up the good work, and thanks for what is still a great and fun game.

    2. Well on Euro Truck Simulator 2 official site, do you see Windows 8 as supported operating system? No. You know why? Because there is no such thing written! It says Windows XP/Vista/7. You may suggest SCS to work on Win 8 support, but until Win 8 support is not clearly written there, I wouldn't even expect it should run good.

      Of course there may be other issues too. Graphics drivers for example. Also: did you installed old DX9.0c (from 2010 I believe) or new distribution made specially for games compatibility with Win 8?

      But you know... you bought the game, I suppose, so you have right to write to SCS tech support. Send them logs and everything, these guys are professionals, I believe they will know much more than we all together.

    3. I READ THAT WIN 8 HAS DX 11 INCORPORATED SO I TOUGHT I DIDIN't HAVE TO INSTALL IT ....I INSTALLED Dx 9 into the game folder but nothing ...game keeps crashing HOW DO I CONTACT SCS SUPPORT ?

    4. I INSTALLED THE LATES NVIDIA DRIVER FOR MY SPECS AND FOR WIN 8 .... IF IT DOES NOT WORK I WiLL CONTACT SCS SUPPORT !

    5. Why do you insist on shouting and changing between upper case an lower case. I'm amazed your getting any help at all with that attitude. Calm down.

      Delete
    6. LOL i'm not shouting.....just wrote my concern, i did not want to contact scs support because we have such a great community , after all the game should be optimized in future updates I HOPE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

    7. Directx is indeed implemented in windows and you don't install it, you update it through this link: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35
      In here you'll find the whole files who CERTAINLY DO NOT HAVE TO BE INSTALLED IN THE GAME FOLDER; JUST CREATE A FOLDER TO YOUR LIKING AND RUN SETUP.EXE FROM THE BUNCH OF FILES!
      http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109

      OpenAL is a one-time install that comes with the game, either on the retail DVD or the game installer file. JUST INSTALL THAT AND LEAVE IT ALONE.

      Run the game and see what the game.log file (open with notepad.exe) says.

      Sidenote: THIS IS THE LAST MESSAGE I'M WRITING WITH YOUR COCKY ATTITUDE

      PS. If you had visited eurotrucksimulator2.com you would have found this under the about tab:
      Q: The game crashes, stutters, or hinders my progress; what should I do?
      A: You should write to our support. Please, describe the issue as much as possible. Also, open your Documents -> Euro Truck Simulator 2 folder and attach game.log and game.crash files to your report, as well as compressed "profile" folder if possible. Without those files we will not be able to investigate your problem further. You can reach SCS Software support for ETS 2 at support@eurotrucksimulator2.com.

    2. It's not only that steam sucks but all steam games must implement a few features like that complete b*llsh*t of steam community features and the "achievements". And all that needs to be implemented and tested for ETS2 before they can officially sell it via steam. Guess thats whats really going on at the moment.

  81. SCS, I probably say on behalf of a lot of people that your work sure hasn't gone unappreciated. I'm glad you guys are still keeping yourselves busy so that y'all don't get rusty. I really, REALLY hope you guys are considering making a new US-set sim with the same features, detail and effort put into it as ETS2. The Extreme Trucker series was ok, but I think it's time we got another step up from 18 WoS American Long Haul. I'm keeping my fingers crossed; keep up the good work fellas!

  83. Hey scs, now i know why mercedes benz/daimler doesn't want to give you their license truck
    I wanna to give you some point..
    first this is the mercedes benz actros picture

    As you can see, the mercedes logo is different than your virtual truck creation
    second, there is actros chrome writing next to the logo
    I think, if you fix those problems, im 100 percent sure daimler/mercedes benz will give you their license//

    Best Regards,

  90. thanks for a great game SCS! But the driving in the game is a bit to easy for my taste. So my suggestion is that you can get Mail or get contactet because a heavy or oversized load need to be transported. it would be fun with something diffrent.

    And my other suggestion is something that you already know and that it double trailers. it would be fun with some more challenge even though its probaly not legal to have in some countrys om Europe. Its wouldnt be ultra realistic with ileagal double trailers but it would be more fun driving. So im hoping for a DLC or something with Doubble trailers or oversized load DLC

    Have a great day, you guys at SCS

  97. An idea to create more revenue for future projects would be to have truck packs available to buy as addons , for instance one model from the 70's the 80,s and the 90's for trucks such as mercs,scania,daf,volvo,man and renault as people young and old have memories of these trucks and i know would love to buy them as addons and drive them in ets 2 . cheers stu

    1. I love older trucks! They are much more beautiful than moder versions. Also, there were more European truck brands up to 90's, such as ERF, Seddon, Leyland, Foden, ÖAF, LIAZ and others. Especially those British were so beautiful, but who knows them now? I would love to see them in ETS2 one day, or maybe in another SCS's games.

      Would be also great to have a game similar to Extreme Trucker, but this time with worldwide known European extreme trucks: GINAF, TATRA and KAMAZ.

    1. Great game engine, you must be joking. I have a top end PC. I run games like COD Black Ops 2, COD MW3 and Sniper Elite v2 at 90 to 125 fps on the highest setting. When running ETS2 I get fps of 40 to 60 on high settings, no ultra settings used. The game engine is crap. The graphics in COD are miles better than the ones used in ETS2 and the frame rates are lower in ETS2 :rolleyes Instead of concentrating on DLC and other payware add ons for ETS2 they need to create a new game engine and then create ETS3. They have made massive improvement with how the game plays, but the performance is abysmal.

      I also see SCS have gone back to the old days where they can not be bothered to communicate with there fans. For the last year or so there was a new topic on here nearly everyday, I suppose to promote ETS2. Now ETS2 has been released the blog has dried up. Also we where told that there was more patches planned for Scania TDS and there has been nothing about that for months, I fully expect ETS2 to go the same way.
