Goodies from Logitech, still working on ETS2 patch

We have received a very cool offer from Logitech for closer cooperation. We are getting access to developer SDKs, allowing us to take better advantage of the capabilities of their input devices. We were also kindly provided with a heap of hardware to try out and develop on.



Here is another picture from the hardware test lab as we are putting the steering wheels, gamepads, gaming keyboards and mice to good use:


Having so much cool hardware around gave us an idea - we can do some sort of a competition related to Euro Truck Simulator 2 with really great prizes! Good quality steering wheel with pedals and gear stick makes a huge difference when playing our simulators, so hopefully we will make a few of you really happy.

We will need to wait a bit more though until the next ETS2 update is finally available. No doubt we are testing the limits of patience of many of you; taking so long with the patch. Big things are brewing, both for the next update and for the overall vision of future evolution of ETS2 and our truck sims in general. Unfortunately big changes in technology take time to develop and test properly, we cannot release them half-done. We are now mostly done with the changes planned for the game update, so please bear with us, the wait is almost over (though not quite, we are talking probably weeks, not days, before it's all fine-tuned for release).

You may be curios what it is that we are cooking it for so long. To satisfy this curiousity, for once let us open up the kimono and show you unedited release notes which were sent to our beta testing group yesterday along with a new game update 1.3.51. As you can tell just from the version number, we have been though a ton of internal builds with incremental changes and improvements over the past months, the release notes only cover changes from previous  1.3.38 internal build.

Hi

Finally, after long time, we have a new testable build.

Patch from 1.3.38
http://_censored_

Full install
http://_censored_

We did several significant changes so unfortunately it did take long
time to get things back to a usable state. It is possible that there are
still some bugs related to them. Note that profiles and saves written
by this build can not be loaded by older version so you should keep a
backup copy of them in case there is some problem or if you want to
switch to the previous version.

The first major change is change of the map format from single file to
set of sectors. This change allows several people to simultaneously work
in distinct parts of the map and might allow coexistence of mods which
independently extend various distinct parts of the map. We also changed
format of several definition files to improve coexistence of some types
of mods. Existing maps in older formats need to be loaded in the editor
and re-saved before they can be used.

The second major change is addition of asynchronous loading.
Significant portion of the data is now loaded asynchronously to avoid
temporary pauses during the game. Note that currently there are still
things, mostly related to AI traffic, which do not support the
asynchronous loading so the pauses might still happen.

As side effect of work on multi-monitor support (still experimental),
the non-ui portions of the game now do not use letterboxing for
non-widescreen resolutions and instead they expand the vertical FOV.
Note that the advisor/on-hud mirrors are currently still positioned on
theirs letterboxed positions.

Known issues:
*) Some new texts are still in english and the build was currently not
updated from GetLoc.
*) The map contains parts which will connect to DLC. They are currently
not marked as unreachable so they are visible in the map and it is not
possible to get 100% exploration of the map.
*) Signs in new parts of the map are not finished yet.
*) When loading older save, the console will contain error messages
about various quarry objects. This is expected.

Additional changes
*) Improved resistance to missing data to some degree
*) It is possible to change length of transition area for clutch pedal
using g_pedal_clutch_range cvar
*) The engine now consumes fuel when left idle.
*) Various fixes and improvements of truck dashboard indicators and
backlight intensity
*) Various physics tweaks + even stronger clutch
*) Support for output of truck telemetry information for use by
third-parties (still work in progress)
*) Force feedback parameters were extracted to definition file so they
can be tweaked by mods
*) Fixed AI curves on UK bus stops
*) Added rumble-stripes to some prefabs
*) Fixed electro poll in the Sawmill
*) Fixed floating lines in recruitment agency
*) Tweaked "give road" sign
*) Fixed hole in forest mountain
*) Fixed missing light above 3rd door in garage
*) Magnum: Adjusted paintjobs, narrowed fenders
*) Fixed various bus stations
*) Fixed pavement in Bremen
*) Fixed alpha sorting for tunnel signs
*) Added stop lines to various prefabs
*) Fixed direction of arrows on roundabout signs
*) Adjusted curves on some crossroads to prevent AI crashes
*) Fixed shadows of some accessories
*) Fixed intensity of small light accessory
*) Fixed positions of accessories on frontgrills
*) Volvo: Fixed interior animations
*) Scania: Paintjob fixes
*) Various other map fixes

    1. This is not job for SCS, it's all up to Mercedes and Logitech... SCS can't influence on making brand wheels, especially since they didn't even approved using original name in game....

      Would be nice for sure

    2. Yeah, that would be great w/ real working horn button, turn signal (w/headlight switch) and windshield wiper levers!
      And maybe a ignition lock with a fake key... but I'm just getting lost in the details :D

    6. It doesn't have to be a branded wheel at all.

      A look-alike, that has a bigger radius than the rest of the steering wheels on the market would do just fine...

      But this was just an idea, I doubt this will ever happen... Though, it would be awesome to have something similar to the truck steering wheel, the immersion in driving would be even better! :)

    7. unfortanly mercedes actros wheel whit the logitech will never happen. because thay need to change the complete g27wheel.

      trustmaster can make a kind of truck wheel.
      that is for the t500 that support switchable steering wheels. like the gt wheel, ferrari f1 wheel and ferrari 430 wheel)

      like orther have sayed that is up to trustmaster to make a kind of wheel.

  3. SCS remember to check the position of the trailer on the tractor and please take a look at the gas tanks becouse they look to small on Majestik Volvo and Renault Magnum .. and if you have time now make an Actros 3D model with 2 tanks becouse this tyre's not cool ! :D.. And maybe some future patches removeable cab spilers.. You're a very dedicated and that's what is keeping the game up! :)

    3. That's because they don't want to tell us everything... They mentioned surprise for the next patch and I'm hoping for double trailers :) There are some secrets ofc and DLC that will be out some time later so expect much more

      BTW this is great SCS, we'll be patient because we want this done properly and I don't doubt you will. Great job!

    4. I don't complain, I don't whine. I just read the changelog didn't find anything I had problems with before and posted my puny opinion. Sorry for not adding "IMHO". Like other ETS lovers, I am waiting for the next patch and new content.

  9. After reading some of these articles about the patches when they talk about changing the technology behind the game so much, I seriously get the feeling the ETs2 we got in October wasn't the ETS SCS wanted to release. Just reading a glimpse of what's going to be added, and what they keep talking about is quite amazing. It's a very rare thing that a game developer will totally overhaul a game engine after releasing the game, and adding so much to it. For consumers atleast this is great news. But for SCS as a company, I have to question this decision from a business prespective. This isn't going to attract new customers, and bring those back to the game that didn't like it before. I suppose I could be wrong, because the next game they release, I'll buy without question. Their is always that!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Good to see that the game will become more stable. However i doubt that it will fix my ETS2 crashing every time i start the game. I know 50+ mods will not help this but it never used to have this problem. I now have to restart my career (was lvl 38) with no mods and this has made the gaming experience not as enjoyable.

  11. I like the updates you're making to the clutch. It will make playing with manual clutch even better :D can't wait. But don't rush it. Do it properly before giving it to us :P

  14. Some of the misses:
    -no indicator for short lights on dashboard (green one) in Volvo and Scania
    -Volvo usually gets damaged when entering in a hotels if equipped with a lower bumper accessories
    -revcounter in Iveco and Volvo
    -Cheaper sideskirt on Iveco covers directly exhaust pipe. Mercs also.
    -no radio in cheaper DAF, Volvo and Scania interiors but Iveco has two?!
    -fuel comsuption same for all engines?
    -tyre wear should be improved also - after only 10000km tyres have 15% damage and need replacement. If not damage transfers to trailer...

    1. Interesting. I hadn't thought about the tires that much, but after reading your post I looked around (it's been a LONG time since I drove HGV's) and came across Michelin, who offer a “7 Year / 700,000 Mile /3-Retread Manufacturer’s Limited Casing Warranty” on their long haul tires. What this means is that it is guaranteed to last for 700K miles on 3 retreads. So original tread, and then 3 retreads, comes down to each tread lasting 175K miles (281K km)! These are tires designed for usage of around 80K miles a year. Yes, I am this dull.

  21. Hi SCS,

    I'm glad to hear news about this. I just wanted to comment on something.

    I noticed the screenshot with the guy using multimonitor, and I assume that this new version will include side views. This is good, but I will post how I play, in case you want to know about the different playstiles people uses.

    In my case I have 3x22" screens, at 5760x1080, all of them positioned in a straight line, meaning they are not positioned at my sides, but as a flat screen. I also have my cameras adjusted to 40-45 fov, instead of the default. I use TrackIR to look around, and this results in a very realistic view, as my side monitors are NOT deformed, and I have to look down even to see my steering wheel. The left mirrors is as fill all the screen height.

    With this change I'm afraid that I will lose this hability and be "forced" to have, again, a small dashboard and a zoomed out view. I hope that at you let multimonitors users select if play as it is now, or with sideviews.

    In any case I'll record a video from a camera and send you the link by email so you see my setup, in case you're curious.

    Thanks!
    Regards.

    1. The side views are optional. Currently there are three modes:

      1) Multi monitor oblivious. Considers entire image to be single extremely wide resolution. This is the current behavior of 1.3.1
      2) Triple monitor aware UI. The UI elements are rendered on the middle monitor, the 3D image is stretched as with 1.
      3) Three separate views with UI on the middle monitor.

  24. Hey SCS Team,here some things you need fix:
    -Using Retarder on Volvo,in a downhill make the truck damaged easy,probably by colision,and need a fix
    -Sideskirts for Scania 6x2/6x4 chassis
    -Sideskirts for Volvo 6x2/6x4 chassis
    And btw,the new trucks (Iveco Hi-Way and New FH)will come at next patch too?We're really waiting for these new trucks,and with this great game,these new great trucks will be awesome.

  25. Great news SCS.

    Especially the changes to the map system are good news. So i assume there is light at the end of the tunnel ?

    Reading the other changes i hope the Volvo FH16 crash bug that was introduced with last patch will be fixed too?

    I guess the list of changes is not complete anyway and just contains changes made from last beta patch, not last final patch.

    3. @Anon 12:48 Exactly!!! For us it's "only" a game, we can wait. For SCS it's about reputation. Everybody knows what happened when patch was released too soon, and again, everybody yelling at SCS where's the patch. Well not everybody, today I see lots of reasonable and supporting comments, thanks God for that.

      It's absolutely necessary to make sure everything works right, to test everything well. Everybody who can read can deduce that most important part of patch is DLC support system. This is, in fact, about business, SCS can't afford blunders. Give them time, for God's sake.

      Play another game, if you're now bored with ETS2, or you know what, ask a girl for a date or do any other thing to give your life a meaning, and when patch will be ready, then come back.

    WOW !!! About Logitech, I have a G27 Steering Wheel and I love to play ETS2 (and 18WoS, ETS, GTS, UKTS, ScaniaTS, T&T).
    I am a real truck driver, my truck is a 18 speed gearbox, (four gears Lo splitted + four gears Hi splitted and two reverse) the shifter has two buttons: the splitter button and the range button.
    I would like very very much to have a Logitech shifter like the real, with the TWO BUTTONS in the knob. SCS and logitech are developing hardware to truck sims? If the answer is YES, Logitech has the G27 Wheel - perfect for ETS2, but needs an exclusive shifter to improve the experience. G27 is a great hardware to plat racing cars whith 4, 5 or 6 speeds, but a truck has 10, 12, 16, 18 speeds with spliter or both spliter and range buttons.
    I use my G27 in the split/range config, simulating the two buttons with the B0 and B1 of the hardware. Could be muth better usinf a shifter developed by Logitech with the butons in it.
    Isn't it?
    Great job, SCS !!!

    1. From Wiki:
      Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is an aqueous urea solution blended with 32.5% high purity urea and 67.5% deionized water. DEF solution is used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to lower NOx concentration in the exhaust emissions of diesel engines.
      The solution may also be referred to as AUS32 or as AdBlue, a trademark held by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA), which ensures quality standards are maintained in accord with ISO 22241 specifications.

  47. Please also send a mail to Thrustmaster and Fanatec. These two companies definately will support you guys, but all you need to do is ask.

    Both companies are ready to give you acces to their SDK's and give their support for their implementation.
    If you have implemented Logitech, Thrustmaster and Fanatec gear and proper FFB support (instead of spring effect with a bit of rumble). Than you will make a whole lot of people of your community more than happy. :)

    Can you give us any more information on this, thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To access the telemetry you will need to write a plugin which will register with the game to receive notification about changes of values of various telemetry channels (e.g. position, speed,...). We plan to release documentation of the API together with the patch.

    1. I know how you feel. I always dreamed of the G25 and later the G27. Now I finally have the money and it isn't available anymore, lol.

      It's going to be re-released soon, but Logitech don't want to say when exactly. That kinda pisses me off, because if I get impatient I might get a Fanatec. Other people waiting for the G27 might get some other wheel too. Logitech can really lose buyers this way.

      Delete
    2. Honestly dont buy a fanatec wheel. I had a fanatec GT3RS V2 and it broke three times within eitght months. I only sold the third replacement wheel three months ago.

      Delete
    3. Wow... thanks for the heads up then! I was actually looking at that same wheel. Fanatec's shipping prizes already scared me off a bit, but if their quality isn't what it should be...

      I just hope the G27 will be re-released soon.

    4. Paulski, on logitech website you still have the option to buy the wheel, and it`s available in store here in Canada. What makes you think it`s unavailable?

    1. It takes time you find and fix the problems that the beta testers report, plus they are working on improving alot of the the problems that they find along the way, add to this they are working on extending the map, adding more truck models, and new features etc etc, it all takes time, meself and the other beta testers are working like crazy to help find the problems and report them to SCS, who in turn are working like mad to fix anything we find, so there is nothing else for you to do but wait until SCS deem the patch ready for release.

Yes we should be able to do store deliveries emptying the entire trailer by ourself with a wheeler/dolly and a ramp and go up and down ramp loading boxes onto wheeler and go up and down ramp repeatedly until or energy bar at top of screen has run out then we must argue with customer that we are short some boxes. After we have to take a shit like the sims and drive to next stop eating fat foods like burgers fries and drinking alcohol while driving extremely tired. Welcome to the life of a delivery driver not a trucker ;)

    WoT is free to play game(!) and players get updates with new tanks etc. almost every month! They had 6 updates in the same time we had only 2 updates (1.2.5 in November and 1.3.1 in February). SCS wake up! People need updates! I really hope for a new patch until May ends.

      So much hurry to enter STEAM, at this time they don´t have any place to keep the money they earn with ETS2 sales... but they know we will have many and many updates and DLC´s in the future, not days, maybe weeks and don´t forget: weeks means months

      Let´s wait, when it finally comes out, i have no doubt it will be great, just wondering how it will cost??

      What a stupid comparison...

    3. Why this comparison is stupid?

      Delete
    4. "Free to play games" are a whole different business model.

      The companies behind those F2P games get constant income from so calked "microtransactions", used for constant development.

      Companies like SCS get money only once for their games.

      Just name 3 game companies (not F2P) that support their games as much as SCS does. The only company I can think of is Polyphony Digital (from Gran Turismo). EA, Codemasters, Ubisoft etc all release games that are full of bugs, but rarely fix any of them.

      Delete
    5. I can't name 3 companies, because I don't play so much games. SCS games are different from others. We don't have storyline or career like in other games so we can't compare it with anything. When you buy a game with single player, you spend several hours to finish the full game and then you put this game on your shelf or you play it again. Nobody tells develeopers to update or redevelop single player in their games because everybody knows that they can't change storyline. They can only make DLC's, and DLC is very popular novadays. ETS2 is game that never ends, and the only thing you can do is driving, and this driving is boring after some time, so the updates with new content are needed to keep this game alive and players interested. SCS is not a Activision and they are not releasing every year a game that mililons buy.

      Delete
    6. true, it's a hideous and stupid comparison

      Delete
    7. SCS Software are the best :D

      Delete
    8. But when you bought ETS2 you knew it would only be endless driving. SCS aren't obliged to add new content for free. So people should be grateful instead of all this whining.

      Just look at other simulstor games; Train Simulator 2013 for example. For a new train you have to fork over 13 Euro's at least.

      Delete
  99. Also World Of tanks makes more money than World Of Warcraft does at the moment, so that might have something to do with the amount of updates they can put out.
