ETS2 Beta build 1.7.2.1

If you are running Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Steam, we are doing another public beta release experiment before releasing an update officially. Please note that is is a small interim maintenance update, not a major feature release.

Highligts include:
  • gearbox tweaking for some of the trucks
  • new exclusive Volvo FH 16 interior
  • several tweaks and fixes of new Volvo tuning parts
  • Volvo FH cabin decal now customizable, works with backlight


To access the beta on Steam, right click on the game's title in Library, select Properties, go to Betas tabs, and pick "public_beta" build. This version of the game should be fully compatible with all save games and stored profiles of the 1.7.x edition of the game.

  1. Basically you have duplicated the mod so Vanilla Gamers can use some of the better features :D

    Looking good though

  2. Finally I can use 750 plate on the cab, great job. Would be cool if you fixed old FH cab, since it's out of proportion.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Cool update, great opportunity for those who have a CD key of the game to activate it on STEAM, best choice in my opinion.

    BUG : The MAN TGX small and medium size cabs are missing the interior small window behind the door (while looking from the interior) even if from the outside is clearly visible.

    Can you add optional roof spoilers and collars for the cab ? Like those optional side skirts. The Scania Highline with roof spoilers with collars would look great.
    And if possible, I would like to transform my "Majestic" spare wheel into a gas tank.

    Keep up the good work

  5. nice work but there is a bugbear there not enough drivers for all garage slots i think you could get the ets players to post in pics of there face and fill in a form to regulate it or just make more for all the garage slots (it is disappointing to see people run out of drivers ) reply if i have a point

    1. and then add road tax, tax and driver insurance (every time uj hire a driver the insurance goes up) to combat the wooingly high money witch everyone's getting start a finning the business side admin staff root planers fuel drivers for your garages garages managers i could go on lol

    2. It's Euro Truck Simulator not Euro Truck Manager.

      Delete
    3. true but in that case why is there half a Management game in euro truck sim 2

      Delete
    4. I'm all for an extended management part. Right now once you own 2 garages you will never ever run out of money. Adding things like having to hire planners, mechanics, buying dedicated trailers, having to compete for company contracts, having to pay insurance and having random events like accidents or delay fines (some of which can be avoided by hiring more or better planners) and so on. I think it would add a whole lot of depth to the game and increase longterm fun.

  6. I like that you are developing new interior even if it's not for Mercedes, because I always look from inside of cabin when I drive. And backlight on cabin decal now it's like in the real life. I don't use steam so I will wait until becomes officially available for everyone. You are testing this on steam because it's easier that way for you and than later if everything goes without bugs everybody(even those who don't use steam) gets stable version with new interior and other stuff. I like how you think SCS. I now know that this is the most productive idea. bolus(World of Trucks)

  9. One small request SCS:
    1. Can you please make the default fog lights in all the trucks seperately useable (like what you have done with the extra horns)?
    2. Static bending lights(cornering lights) while turning or when indicators are turned on - possible?
    please consider. A long time ETS player from India! Hearty congrats and best wishes for all your future endeavours.

    1. That is one of the really old "bugs": you are now actually saying "I have a crack". If you buy the game on Steam or CD, the truck will become normal color again.

      Just don't be poor and buy games. I can buy 20 copies of ETS 2 if I want to, just right now.

    3. I have a "Paid" Steam version and this update turned my truck red also.
      The headlight lense tint is also now red.(MegaStore Mod)
      Granted it is probably the Mod's I have loaded.. but its red none the less.

      Delete
    4. Red parts can be caused by missing textures or wrong rendering. I experienced it with one tuning mod.
      About pink truck, is it possible to produce pink truck bug on legal game? Just for fun/trying

    2. Totally agree. And what's even worse is that these pirates dare to come to this place and complain about everything that's wrong with this game in their eyes! Or even whine for a product key! That's what happend when the GE DLC was released. Pisses me off. Stupid kids.

  13. My game update automatically yesterday so I'm glad to see the changelog here. Anyway I'll give my opinion on the interior (not to take as complain). Personally I see more "exclusive" the default configuration, than the new one, specially the steering wheel, with color leather matching dashboard, instead of plastic-looking grey.

    Also I have to say that the cellphone added it's a good idea, but maybe it should be an interior addon configuration, which could be available to other trucks as well, like some mods do, giving some sense to the interior addons tab. Maybe it was an item in your (SCS) wishlist that wasn't completed, but configuring the interior with curtains, flags on the windshield, cellphones, laptops, etc.. is something many mods do and that I'm sure many people would love.

    As I stated many times previously, I wouldn't mind paying (and I'm sure many players also) for a DLC with custom interior configurations, not just the dash and driver seat appearance, but also for adding different things to the interiors. Driver plates was a great idea, but the game still misses that "more customization" feature that many players miss.

    Thanks!
    Regards.

    1. Replying to myself... looking closely at that device on the left (exclusive interior), I'm starting to thing it's not a cellphone? I have no idea about the features of this truck, so I ask to anyone that know for sure... Is that some "exclusive" device for controling something on the truck, or just a phone?. Thanks.

      Delete
    2. I didn't see new interior yet, but digital tachograph is located on the left side above the windshield in many trucks including Volvo. On this picture you can see it on the left side above the steering wheel and the windshield: http://apps.volvotrucks.com/volvo-fh/fh16/images/FH16/new-volvo-fh16-interior.jpg. And on this picture you can see close-up of the tachograph: http://www.tachohellas.gr/prd_images/15I6E4V1T.jpg If it ain't the tachograph than I don't know what it is. Volvo already has an integrated cell phone on the dashboard as you already saw in the game. bolus(World of Trucks)

      Delete
    3. @Anonymous: Based on the keys I see and after seeing that tacho, looks like it isn't a phone, but some kind of "shortcut" to the tachograph, or something like that, as it has "M1" and "M2" keys, which I know nothing about... looked a bit old for current cellphones, so it now has more sense to have it in the exclusive interior.

      Delete
    4. Katixa you are right it's a shortcut but not to the tachograph. M is short for memory. M1 and M2 are memory settings that can be set by the driver. They position the suspension. Let me explain, you have two buttons lets call them arrow keys for setting the desired ride height, when you have desired height then you press and hold the M1 or M2 button. You also have stop button that you need to press while holding the M1 or M2 button, this will program the M button that you are holding to go to the height you have just set, so there is no need to push other buttons again you just press M2 or M1 to go down or up.This is how it works in real life. Now I like SCS even more, because I want to use all the buttons in the cabin. :) bolus(World of Trucks)

  15. I wasn't really bothered to activate my game on Steam. I think I will do it right now.

    Although I am more like a CD gamer, not a gaming library gamer, I disliked Steam. Now knowing the advantages and such, it sounds like Steam is just a win/win situation. I would recommend it to all, even because it isn't noticeable in game.

    1. I was a non(anti)-Steam many years ago, when their first games required the platform to download or update, but honestly I've been using it for some years even activating boxed games on it (the few that allow it), and I'm glad I did... doesn't affect my PC, the games get updated automatically, I can just download or delete them as I want, I don't have to worry about inserting DVDs or broken DVDs, serials, etc..., and I get many offers, and discover new games, that I wouldn't have if it wasn't for it... I have a huge library which is made mainly from christmas or season offers (-75% off, etc.) excepting some just-launched games. I understand some people want 100% control of their installed software and to have the boxed game, but maybe they also have the wrong idea about Steam... I also WAS a CD gamer... who knows, maybe I still will buy some physical game which includes a map or something (Skyrim, I did, for instance, but activated then on Steam and was downloaded/installed there) but for everything else, just Steam.

    1. No announcements pending as far as we know. They currently have resources in getting 1.8 out the door as well as American Truck Simulator.

      Delete
    2. Work on native Mac OS version has been under way for almost a year with dedicated personnel to make it happen. The goal is to be 100% up to date with Win and Linux versions and keep it that way once the Mac version is out. Not a small task - catching up with constantly evolving ETS2 codebase has been very difficult, and necessary Mac specific optimizations are somewhat tougher than we expected, too. compared to Scania TDS Mac port for example, we are facing much more complex problem due to the project's size and requirements. Please be patient with us, ETS2 on Mac OS is definitely going to happen!

    3. linux and mac version are nice to see, but i would like to see the small ressources of scs are used in more content/functions/updates/ATS/ECS instead of porting to other systems

      they havent done anything since I stumbled across that site months ago. It is going nowhere.

      Even if they did get somewhere, they cant make B-doubles and road trains without SCS changing game code so it wouldnt be much of an oz truck sim..

  22. Uggg... such an ugly interior. What the hell is going on with you SCS? Can't you see how it looks? You better left the old one and just add that remote. I'm starting to feel disappointed and to regret that I bought the game and DLC. You also said you are going to release the AI patch in October, now it's December almost. I'm starting to think you are slowly forgeting about ETS 2 and focus on American Truck Simulator, this isn't a 2 months update. I hope you are preparing something bigger like AI for the final version of this update. Don't forget the people that brought you here. You promised us that you will keep updating the game for a long time, I hope you will keep at least that promise.

Why can t we assign only some kind of jobs to our drivers? Like giving to a driver to only transport chemicals or only apples. and why can't we meet our drivers on the road?Why traffic trucks don't steer? Or why the their whipers don't start when it's raining?These are the real problems of the game!GIVE US THE NEW AI!

      QUOTE: "We are now hard at work merging in two important code changes - improvements in physics, especially in the area of suspension, and major traffic AI rewrite. Both are big functional changes that need to be integrated and tested extensively. Time needed for testing each such major feature change is always hard to estimate, but we hope that it is a matter of weeks rather than months before it's all ready for release in another ETS2 update."

      There a clerical error. SCS meant to write a few months, rather than years. Well, now just gone three weeks of that same scripture, and they're not even received a 1.7.2 bug fix patch. But is expected to, yes, they come up with another one the hasty lie.

      Okay, I'm nasty, but they promise too much and then they have to cancel the speech or do something else.

    1. all those well known scene-mappers are able to tell us the own opinion with own name,
      those scene-mappers know why it is so easy to make little cheap DLC and public-betas on steam... and they know WHY it is a win/win situation for Modders and Develpers.
      which map we will lost when you retire? the most important maps are made by teams...

      and just for info: you do not need to create a steam-community-ID, you are able to use steam without that community-stuff:

      So there are no reasons for decline steam,

      if you want open betas and some more little DLC then register your key on steam and decline the community-id

Only the 6x2 and 6x4 are not provided. As I think a lot of people would be happy for sure!
