The New Volvo FH Series news

We know that we haven't been sharing much news recently about a highly-demanded that truck we have under development (see the results of our survey) - the new Volvo FH Series. The fan community is always bombarding us with requests and questions about it, so here is a little update...

We have the bulk of the work done on both exterior and interior at last. Still ahead of us is texturing, setting up dashboard controls animations, modeling of chassis for the various axle variants, and of course a set of tuning parts to be released along with the truck tractor. This still represents quite some man-weeks of work, but for sure the new Volvo FH is coming, and will be the star of one of upcoming game updates during the Autumn.

Let us show you a couple of Work In Progress shots of the interior model:

    1. Yeah, yeah, this looks great, too bad they never finished the existing models (idiotic sunroofs, trucks with low cabs on the outside, but with the interior of big cabs, ugly textures... Etc.)

      Delete
    2. What is the "new FH series"? Are the existing ones replaced or is this a complete new truck?

    2. also PATCH 1.4.12 IS OUT GO TO THE ETS2 WEBSITE!!! I just needed to spread the word since theres no blog post

      Delete
    3. Because SCS is too lazy to do it themselves?...
      Thanks anyway, but this is something the company should tell us...

  7. Great, congratulations for your efforts, I love SCS...

  8. Congratulations!

  9. would be a good you can modify the exhaust pipe on the truck and change the noise SCS please put the noise leakage

  10. But the old and the new model of trading, as at IVECO !

    ReplyDelete
  11. anyone who says congrats or great don't belong here, Its taken over half a year to make this volvo which still isn't finished and yet modders can do it in days / weeks. By the time this model comes out it will be replaced by a new Model RL.

    1. I was under the impression that they're exactly the people who belong here. Surely fans of SCS software and the effort they put in are the people who should frequent this blog??? Or am I missing something? Do you think this message board should be filled with Anonymous trolls like you who will knock SCS no matter what. By the way, You do know that the majority of models which have appeared in ETS2 by modders haven't been built from scratch they have been converted from the older games. That's why they're done in days.

      Delete
    2. You don't know how long it takes to make a good model . If you're so good why don't you do it yourself ? Learn how to , and then speak here . Besides , they are working on many other things simultaneously . That's why it's taking so long . I want this Volvo more than you can imagine but you have to understand that it takes time .

      Delete
    3. Dont forget they are also working on the new patch ECS ATS and WOTR and maybe planning on ETS3

      Delete
    4. At the moment, there is only one FH2013 mod that has been copied a few times. And you can clearly see it's been made in a few days, and that's not a compliment. Truck mods will NEVER reach the quality of the official content.

      Delete
    5. Oh come on, a team of professionals that know what they're doing don't need this much time to make ONE model...

      I understand that making something nice takes weeks, but the time SCS needs is just ridiculously long.

      Patch 1.4.8. is what ETS2 needed to be fom the beginning, that also took ages.

      Saying SCS is perfect company that makes only awesome things is "sweet", but it's also bullsh*t...

      Delete
    6. Yes admittedly scs have taken a while but look, no modder will be able to perfect like scs will, they have exclusive access to trucks not like we do, respect the time taken and all the hard effore, well done scs, this looks amazing

      Delete
  12. SCS Software, can you please put in an option were you can move the side curtains forward please? as I like the curtains out a bit

  15. Is this only the FH16 or are the smaller engines included, too?

  16. Those modder are not fucking patient by making this too with buggy interior and uglier model. I prefer this...

  17. Autumn: 23 September to 21 December

    1. DLC comes out September 20th, and the official cover of this addition is the new Volvo. That patch has to go before 20 September . Well I think scs? :)

    2. Volvo will NOT be ready till September 20th. It will be ready for December, maybe November.

  19. It looks incredible and I can't wait for it! Your news came just in time for many I think - keep working on newer models for the game but make sure you give us the choice to buy the Euro 6 models besides the previous one just like you did with the new Iveco!
    As a Renault fan I would ask the newer version of those but I more prefer the new Daf Euro 6 or the new MB Actros MP4 :)

    Once more congratulations!

  20. Still waiting on the update from Steam for Euro Truck Simulator 2. Nice Volvo but I prefer the Peterbilt that I have.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Guys, you are awesome! Looks really good, great job! Keep doing it, and make the new trucks of the other brands as good as this! I hope you make them too, but just this Volvo reaches at least for the next 2 updates! I hope there'll be soon a blog in which you tell us something about your plans for the next time ! But now, the Volvo is important so keep working on it that the truck just will be as awesome to drive as is looks like ;) Thanks SCS !

    ReplyDelete
  22. Do you build the models from scratch or do you get given cad files from Volvo and/or other manufacturers?

    Looks great BTW :)

    1. Ja pi...e DUDE let them work on ETS 2 and still evolve it ! You want then to drop their actual work and do for you that murica truck game ?! Are you nuts ! They have no team that have 200+ people so give them a break! ETS2 for now is most important. They released it early to have income so they can do the rest! They are no multi million company! And you kids nagging them to make new games every year! You little rude t..s! You are annoying little p....s REALLY! Go play your COD that is excrete every years! Because they make lots of money and have many people working on it. SCS is small company but you little re...s think that they can make games like huge companies. You are so stupid people. Please be gone for ever :/

    2. And you dear to call other people rude?
      Youre the only one acting like a complete asshole here.

  57. Nice!

    1. Please think of updating your engine for cpu multicore
    support (more than 2) and real antialiasing by gpu.
    2. Please add the gas pedal to be controlled with mousewheel
    for keyboard + mouse control or as alternate low speed
    cruise control.
    3. Please fix unrealistic motorway exists, which root is a
    main lain. Use the breakdown lane for it.
    4. Please send me pallette of Czech Budweiser... Or not :P

    ReplyDelete
  72. Looks great, but for me it would be incredible to create Mercedes Actros MP4.
    Last but no least - would be possible to do some change to automatic gearbox to make manual changes occasionally ? It could be simple switch button between automatic and sequential version of gearbox as it is now... ;-)

  81. I beg of you guys, there is only one request I have for this truck (and the existing volvo) change the Globetrotter sign so it is paintable!

    ReplyDelete
  82. like in the next update could paint the rim of which is black rims front. At the rear is the only center that is eastern black eagle of the core and we wished we also mirrors the core we we chose. And in each mirrors could also put 3 or 4 equal to the tail lights bumpers are just a few tips that I think was well beyond my greatest desire is to add SPAIN and PORTUGAL

    ReplyDelete
  83. hopefly they make the light above the driver working ;)

    ReplyDelete
  84. PLEASE STOP WORKING ON NEW TRUCKS AND WORK ON MAC VERSION!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Please add functionality of converter dolly to turn. There are already several mods made, but due to your changes in game code, the dollys do not turn (they could in previous games!).

    Please do not leave out features I could enjoy in previous games.

    Due to lack of turning dolly, dog/pup trailers in this game will not turn and behave like a pig trailer (no articulation).

    This means a dog trailer setup (with converter dolly) will not reverse any differently to a regular semi-trailer, again leaving this game unrealistic.

    Currently there is no way (EVEN THROUGH MODS!) to have a dolly that turns independently from the trailer it is bearing weight on.

    ReplyDelete
  86. SCS, it would be great if you allow in the next patch or whatever the option to allow to roll down the window so you can hear more sounds like cars passing through!

    3. I agree to the fact that incabin sounds need a push (+decibel). Can't say so much about rolling of windows. How many times are we gonna use such a feature? Not many i suppose.
