Photos, Betas

We are still processing the photos and videos from our Car Crashing Day event - and of course the sfx themselves still need a lot of work to process, clean up, and implement. This is not something that can be plugged into the game immediately, please have patience with us. Anyway, today we have placed a bunch of photos from the day to our facebook page here.


Meanwhile, work on game update 1.8 is in full swing, with testing going on in closed betas.

However, there are reports of problems people are having with 1.7 version. These may not be game-breaking problems that trouble everybody, normally we'd wait to include them with another major update. But especially for people running larger map mods, there are stability issues reported, problems that if fixed would no longer require arcane workarounds for mod users. So we thought that doing a public testing beta release might be a good way to see if have managed to make the game more robust. If you have been affected by any of these issues, please let us know whether this update makes the game more stable without causing some undesired side-effects. We'll consider making this into a regular game patch.

Changelog beta build 1.7.1:
  • fixed crash on freight market when too many jobs were generated (mods only)
  • fixed rare crash that sometimes happened with air horn usage
  • fixed incorrect trailer placement when automatic parking was used in Trameri Warszaw
  • fixed engine displacement volumes for Volvo and Iveco
This beta update is currently only available through Steam; to access it, you need to opt in to access betas, and switch to "public_beta" branch. Thanks for your feedback!

    1. I know it would be nice to have these extremely long truck/trailer combos in the game, but, they are not legal in all part of Europe. In the UK for example the maximum length is 18.75m, the Gigaliner is over 25m long, so, not possible.

      Delete
    2. 18.75 is the legal limit ? How the UK then to be the first European country to have 32 meter trailers on test for road usage ? And i know for a fact average semi trailer + Truck have a limit on 24meters allmost all around europe

      Delete
    3. I would be happy, if we could buy our own trailer... and when SCS would put this kind of a truck in to the game:

    4. https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/semi-trailers On this site you can see all the information about maximum length of the trailers in the UK. And my eternal gratitude goes to SCS for giving option for non steam players such as myself to download hotfix 1.7.1. Greetings from bolus(World of Trucks).

  7. I have been using the 1.7.1 beta for several days. I used to have the "fixed crash on freight market when too many jobs were generated (mods only)" error and this completely fixed it.

  8. Can't wait for the next version of the game that will bring the new AI code, hope that will change the game really and brings something and hope some other suprises that you haven't revealed yet!. Keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  9. This is not in the new 1.7.1 beta, but since we are talking about bugs I thought I should tell you this.
    When you save near the railway with the gates closed and load it back up the gates become transparent and the A.I vehicles and even I was able to drive past it.
    You should try it, it is not something that could happen often but something that should be taken care of.
    Thank you for a great game SCS! Keep up the good work

  11. pink trucks problems?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you have the cracked version so buy the game then complain

      Delete
    2. From what I've read, the pink trucks problem can be fixed by not using a pirated version of the game.
      Only happens in cracked versions of the game. The fix would be to do the right thing and buy a legal version

    3. i wish there was a like button for johns comment (the one time i need a like buttoin and there isnt one)

  12. Also noticed a minor glitch, probably relates to going east: when viewing the map, if zoomed in, it won't pan all the way east. For example, it's not possible to click on Debrecen to get a job list from there as the map won't let you see it - the map moves itself back west and Debrecen (and other cities that far east) are then hidden under the job list.

    Also applies to the main map when looking at it while driving.

    1. It's mod-connected issue. Try switching some of them off to examine which one is guilty.

      Delete
    2. Is it a mod issue? I have never installed any mods and also have this problem.

      Delete
    3. It can be caused by mod or edited file game.sii, so try to replace it by original file and problem will be gone.

      Delete
    4. It's probably have no plans to add many trucks. Most likely they will update current trucks (like the new FH).

      All trucks require a license and approval of their respective truck maker. This is a long process and costs money.

      Also, they will not add trucks that are not commercially available or for sale in Europe.

  15. yeah, i like public beta in steam :-)

    2. They have the licenses for all trucks in the game apart from Mercedes.

      It's not that they don't want to, it's just they haven't been able to get Mercedes to agree to license it for the game.

  22. Hi
    Why Update only for Steam User ?
    I have CD version and I pay more money as a Steam user and I always have to wait until finally the normal download is available.
    Is bit unfair.

    1. The choice is there to activate your key on steam. Steam is good, been using it for 10 years now. Though if you refuse to accept, that steam makes your and SCS's life easier, then it is the waiting room for you.

      Delete
    2. Steam is an cheaper, easier, more powerful medium for distribution. You can enter you key in Steam and it will become a Steam powered game, so you will get updates automatically and access to DLC right away.

      Delete
    3. I agree with Anonymous, We pays most of moneys and we no have any beta. I now have activated a steam version by my CD key, but it is really unfair!!!

    4. Seriously?! The betas were running since 1.4/1.5 and just now you're complaining to have it for non steam users just because they only mentioned now? Since months are those beta patches on steam! It contains only a few features for the next patch and it brings some bugs. I you want beta builds then add the key to steam! if not: WAIT FOR THE PATCH

  33. Hi. I run Promods Scandinavian edition and did have a problem with crashing when entering the job market on certain profiles. Since the release of the 1.7.1

  36. I have seen some videos on youtube and the game looks very cool.
    IF SCS finds a way to add randome noise or small bumps, cracks and lines on the ground that can give subtle and mild shakes or joltings, accompanied by the sounds made by the trailer (*CRANKKK* *BADUMM*) and some cabin movement... That day I'm buying the game.
    Aaaand, if you could please add a button so not so good computers could disable mirrors, or make some better ones... Not a big deal, but my framerate die on cameras with the mirros activated (even without HDR)

    ReplyDelete
  37. So... I installed ETS2, patched it to version 1.7.1 and installed the Going East DLC... And all I get is :

    "INCOMPATIBLE DLC : Part of the currently installed downloadable content is not compatible with with the current version of the game and will be disabled. You need to apply the latest update to restore compatibillity. The following content is incompatible: DLC Going East!"

    So now WHAT???
