Small advertisement for our twitter channel

If you are not following SCS Software on our Twitter, you are missing out on some tiny news, just like right now about ETS2 being #1 Top Seller on Steam!

94 comments:

  1. Cool, but what about the Volvo patch? When it will be released?

  2. I do not have a twiter account, and to be honest I do not want one. To many tweets make a twat.

    Any Chance of a update that is worth while for people like me ? I do not use Steam or Linux.

    A few comments on what you hope to add to the next patch/patches would be nice. All we have at the minute is speculation any chance of some confirmations ?

    1. Try an engage you brain before commenting perhaps? ETS2 on Steam equals more potential sales from a wider audience, more sales will allow SCS to further develop the game and look at areas such as map expansions and getting licensing deals with other truck manufacturers.

      It's all Me! Me! Me! with the modern generation.

    2. Try to be more tolerant to other commenters. I actually agree with him because:

      1. Before the game realease SCS promised that they are going to be very active with realeasing patches in the future.
      2. There was no interesting/valuable information about changes to game mechanics (which is always interesting to read) in the future patch since the post "evolving ETS...".

      P.S. If they are going to surprise us with something really interesting, impressive and new then it's okay. But if this patch is not going to be any bigger than the previous one then I personally (!) think that SCS has betrayed their promise.

    3. Its interesting to me that every person I see using the "Twitter=Twatter" joke has absolutely no idea what it even is, or even how to use it. Do you proudly proclaim your lack of knowledge over every subject?

      "Twat" is used fairly often as a derogatory term here in the UK, his post made perfect sense to me.

  3. All does not want to facebook or twitter, but I want to play a free time and waiting for a patch, which been about 2 months in the works.I'm not interested in twitter, but I want information about the new patch.I don't twitter or facebook information.

  4. Hello, I wanted to say was that ETS2 appeared on magazine specialize as "France road."

    ReplyDelete
  5. Wow, #1 three months after official release? I expected success on Steam, but I could not imagine even Top 20. Now Valve must think they should be MUCH faster. I wish Valve every dollar of their participation in profit, but let it be lesson for them how many more bucks they could have. (The whole Greenlight is great and helping platform for independent developers, so I really think that Valve truely deserves the money coming from it).

    To SCS, I wish you much more than "15 minutes of fame" on Steam, well 15 weeks as #1 would be nice. :-D Of course let's be realistic, I simply mean as long success as possible.

  6. Congrats! SCS,
    And thanks for the great game.

    1. You asking for something like military secret. :-D These numbers are usually not given to public, at least not so soon. In fact developer could tell, but usually it's part of publishers strategy. You may know sales of other games, but be assured these numbers are only estimated sales by 3rd party companies.

  15. Let me congratulate you on this!

  20. Guys from SCS Soft, make it more fun: make in some patch, a better rain, with more intensity... that kind of rains that you cant see your hand in front of you, and put one more speed to the whippers, to "try" to make you see through that hard rain!

    ReplyDelete
  21. There is someone having the same problem as I do?
    My nights dont get darker when raining..
    I do not have a screen shot, but im playing and the night is about 22 hours in game, but i can clearly see without lights.. it dont get darker... i saw a lot of vids of people playing at night, raining, and here, it dont do nothing..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 22 hours is early for ETS2. Raining or not, it's still visible. Really dark night starts from midnight or slightly sooner. It's like a summer solstice. But on the opposite side, you can see stars even after 7 AM. So really not sure if that's a summer. :-D

      Maybe in next patch they'll adjust it. I'm for keeping summer conditions, but little more according to reality.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've been playing the demo for a few days and just purchased the game through Steam. Great game! Could you make available a European road basics tutorial (signs and etiquette) for American drivers? Also, why has the moon settled into a geosyncronus orbit? I've noticed that it NEVER moves. Again, great game! :)

    1. Almost all important road signs of more than 20 European countries:

      Speed limits for all countries worldwide:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_limits_by_country

      Some basic rules and conventions, it seems it's a pretty good article:
      http://www.reidsguides.com/t_au/t_au_driving.html

      As you can see, conventions are really not so far from American conventions. Etiquette on roads, however, differs from country to country. Discipline in the north, savages in the south.

  40. just love to play this game, but in this time from the release date and the latest patch, there is nothing new... hope will be very soon any new upgrades, new patches, new roads on the map, new countries in the map, new weather improvements (snow,...).
    Really hoping for any new stuff in ETS2, but not to forget would be great to add in the job list new products, like audio-tv stuff, computers, any kinds of materials, construcion materials, new foods, food tankers, etc. Really hoping any new stuff will be downable with the patches or from your download section. I'm two times a week on this blog site and nothing new about new items for the ETS2 game. Please SCS, can you account this for the game. I really hope so. Many of us would like to see new items and other stuff that can improve this driving simulation. With regards, Tony & Alex (Lj, Slo).
    PS: thanks for adding Slo language in the game, we love it. :)

    PACH VERSÃO 1.2.24

    1. O sistema de peso das cargas será independente da carreta, associado ao DEF da carga, possibilitando ter pesos diferentes, para cargas diferentes;

    2. Além disso, a informação do peso da carga aparecerá no nome da carga, facilitando a escolha da carga por peso, além das opções atuais;

    3. Além do DAF, Volvo e Iveco ganharam seus logos e nomes reais, faltando apenas agora os Mercedes;

    4. Os Volvos ganharam sons reais;

    5. Implementado retarder no jogo, associado ao tipo da caixa de câmbio;

    6. Nada de expansão por enquanto. Se a SCS está criando o mapa da expansão, nós Beta Testers não recebemos nada ainda.

    7. A SCS não informou o prazo de lançamento do novo patch;

    É isso pessoal, vamos ficar atentos as modificações!!

  46. O que é um blog. Não há nenhuma menção de quem você é e quando você conhece. Por SCS-equipe em si não fornece estas notícias importantes. Sim, eles dizem algo sobre o steam e notícias twitter. Mas nada de importante e essencial. Claro, estes são bons, mas não se aplica um patch ou DLC.

    E desculpa para o Português ruim.

    Saudações da Finlândia

    What's a blog. There's no mention of who you are and when you know about. Why SCS-team itself does not provide these important news. Yes, they tell something about the steam and twitter news. But nothing important and essential. Sure, these are good, but does not apply a patch or DLC.

    Greetings from Finland

    Mikä blogi. Ei täällä ole mitään mainintaa ja kuka sinä olet, kun noin tiedät. Miksi SCS-team ei itse kerro näitä tärkeitä uutisia. He kyllä kertovat jotain steam ja twitter uutisia. Mutta ei mitään tärkeätä ja oleellista. Toki nämä on hyviä,mutta ei koske patch tai DLC.

  47. Most people wait for new patches and extensions of gameplay, not such kind of news you've posted recently... The situation becomes really disappointing and my guess is that Volvo patch will be the last one (at least free) for ETS2

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have with the same mind. SCS-Team now wants much money and forget about the free patch. Guess that there will be a few DLC out first, and later a free patch. I hope that I am wrong. They must also be corrected Daf interior, it is done as a child.And and ...Volvo and Iveco reach there according to.

  48. I will not agree with what the friend said above not to be pessimistic.

    But going into the third month and do not have a real update, I believe that the game had a rapid growth and higher than expected, but I believe that SCS has a plan for ETS2, after all we know that this game yet just beginning.

  49. What we expect. Nothing information about coming. November last blog update patch. Okey, they have a hurry, but why tell the t-shirt of mail or twitter in the game and steam, if you do not have to give any information about patch. I WONDER. They previously written a blog very much, but now is very quiet. In a hurry, but, but. Date not important, but the information on what is coming, a few photos, or ...? but not anymore. Of all the main news not anything.

    1. Yes. Need at least some information in what direction they are going with new patch. It's not about date. It's hard to write a couple of strings and photos to all the fans of a game?

  52. On December 6th, Pavel wrote on this very blog: "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."
    He said "a LOT" and there isn't any news about the games themselves.... just updates about the distribution of ETS 2, about how sales are doing well, Linux, etc. Never ANY news about the CONTENTS anymore... about how they are doing with their THREE other projects... Come on SCS... I understand that you were not "forced" to create a blog for your fans but, since you did, you've created expectations! Either you have a blog and you update it or you shut it down.
    At the time you were about to release ETS 2, you gave us a LOT very often and that was much appreciated.
    Please Pavel, come up with SOMETHING soon... ;)

  59. I agree with steam being a crude unnecessary add on/ spyware site but if the game sells well in theory it should be well supported and we can see well done expansion packs..., I was a fan of SCS and think they are great but not having a patch out for so long for ets2 especially over the holidays when many people had free time and eager to play it is rather poorly done, having said that thought the game is 'stable' as is but there should of been at least a token patch it would hardly take long at all to add more default radio stations and put Volvo in now that they can and add a few more custom skins for trucks, we did the right thing by buying the game to support the people that made it that fact that so many mods are popping up so quickly shows how easy it is.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Eh, I disagree with it being a crude unnecessary site. While I may not care for it, many people only play PC games that come out on steam, for them it is the "portal" for gaming on the computer. And to some extent I can understand, as I find the interface to be at least half decent, and it does organize the games well. Also, how could it be considered a spyware site? They tell you that their taking the information, so it isn't as if it's behind your back....

    Also to the person who said why would we care if it sold well on steam? I care, because it means that we may have a more secure future for SCS games. Not just financial people think of these things...

They need as many revenue streams as possible. Your jobs aren't affected by the success or failure of this game, theirs are. I'd love an update too but am adult enough to understand that the developers need to make money to keep the doors open. Grow the hell up and be patient.
