Status update

A short update on what is happening now at SCS Software...

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.

Of course, in the meantime our other teams are pushing for progress in other areas, including American Truck Simulator, new territorial expansions for ETS2, on new trucks, new buses, we are adding new features to World of Trucks... a lot is going on! We are placing big bets on the future, so four new people are coming to SCS just this week to help us speed up our work.

And there is more, we'll have even more exciting news for you in near future about our push for adding yet more development talent and capacity.

Meanwhile, there are some other cool things happening out there...


There's massive discount available now for a huge bundle of simulators - The Superpower Sims Bundle. The bundle includes the original classic Euro Truck Simulator game and many other notable simulators for ridiculously low price. We hope that this can bring in fresh players to the truck sim family, and for some people, it may also be a cheap chance to finally own a legal copy of the game. In addition to getting a bunch of nice games on the cheap, Bundle Stars will contribute to SpecialEffect charity from each sale made.



We are also happy to announce that Scania Truck Driving Simulator has been Greenlit by Valve with the help of fan community! While it's not a new game for many of you, the additional exposure to the 65+ million-strong Steam player base is great news for us. This could mean yet more revenue and funding for investing into our current and future work. Thank you guys!

  3. SCS,please focus on finishing the original trucks first before continuing to work on new trucks. Also, please, please, please, do some sound tunning for the other trucks, other than scania. they sound like mad vacuum cleaners and are not half as polished as the scania and the new volvo. please, i really want to play with other trucks present in the games, but the extremely annoying sound of the trucks keeps me away...and polish them like the scania

    1. In addition to your comment, I'd like to suggest when recording sounds of the trucks, record the throttle release sound, because at the momment the trucks sound the same with throttle on and off, which is not really accurate.

      Other than that, it is good to hear improvements for ETS2! Thanks SCS, keep it up!

      Delete
    2. i would love that too.. it's soo satisfying,when you release the throttle on a real truck, when the hydralics are at work :D

      Delete
    3. In my opinion SCS has received a shitload of money from Scania and Volvo to overpower their trucks. These 2 brands are so overpowered, you can't overlook them. For example, you can't drive a Renault, Man or Iveco properly, cause they lack power, and additions, which the Scania and Volvo's do have.
      Also it is a pity that the new Mercedes' and DAF trucks weren't already implemented in the game. These types are almost half a year on the market. It isn't that hard to design a new truck?

      SCS you should be ashamed of yourself by overpowering the Volvo's and Scania. The new Volvo truck has a whole list of engines, where other brands only have 3. Reconsider your strategy, and give every brand a fair chance!

      Delete
    4. you ever looked to notice that in the real world, Scania and Volvo have been having a willy-waving competition ever since the 500BHP V8 came out? From what I hear, the 750 volvos in the real world have an appetite for gearboxes, too... it'll only be a matter of time til Scania do a 780 :)

      Delete
    5. Other companies have not allowed a marketing deal as well as Scania and Volvo. If companies want to be fairly represented they need to put some skin in the game (no pun intended).

      Delete
  4. Sounds great scs I can't wait to take my truck/ trucks to new locations! I brought Scandia as well a while ago some great challenges in that. I'm glad everything is working out well for scs the only thing the company has done that I really didn't like was make the halloween dlc steam only :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. +1 I also didn't like steam only, but I believe in SCS. They are the best gaming company and I'm sure that they will find some way how to give option to sell that halloween dlc for non steam players. Anyway they have to do that with small dlc but all the big dlc will be for everyone. I guess they will make small dlc bundle for the non steam players when they make more paint jobs and interior dlc. SCS can sell bundle for more than 2 euros and problem is solved. SCS thank you a million time for all the free stuff that you gave us in this game. I was disappointed when you made dlc for steam only but now I understand. I will patiently wait for you to make small dlc bundle for non steam players. And I wait for you to make Balkans, especially Yugoslavia. Maybe even some Yugoslavian trucks like for example TAM and FAP or even Zastava trucks. Greetings from bolus.

    2. Please SCS, in the next update add DLC of skins, users no-steam want us of the DLC also. You do not discriminate to us

  5. Really excited! Can't wait for the new patch. I also hope for a sound upgrade in the near future! Engine sounds and effects are a big part of the experience.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Adding to that, dunno if any of you ever thought about trailer sounds? The new Volvo is just amazing but I prefer the Iveco Hi-Way only coz it got its own unique sound. I love the engine start sound it makes. :)

      I delivered Iron Pipes in the morning today (:P) when this idea of having some iron rumbling sound from the trailer hit me. Dunno if this will be a burden on the SCS team but I'd bet this will bring the game more closer to reality.

      Continue with your endeavours SCS and I hope you can squeeze this tiny detail in some future patch as well. Also, if you guys read this, can we have a forum on WoT where some or any of you from the dev team can have some quick words with us?

      Thanks for sucha nice game SCS. Hail the Hauler i.e. you! :D

  11. Not bad so far SCS. But when you do a Major AI rework, please, please make it finally happen, that we can see our own company's trucks in AI traffic.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Could you also try to make traffic jams that don't just occur at signals (e.g. motorway, dual carrigeways ect.) It would add that bit more realism to the game.

      Delete
    3. +1 Anonymous, On the traffic jams, my humble opinion is that this would be one of those HUGE little things that would add amazingly to the game-play / sim-play experience.

      I don't know diddly about programming but in my dream, it'd be a slider to allow players to set their own preference for amount of traffic.

      Delete
    4. Currently, game has pointless feature called light signal. Please make AI sensitive to signals, including light signal.
      Add right/left hand rule and don't let AI drive trough walls after crash.
      In longer future, please add something like police and other alarm vehicles (you may get fined, if you don't let them pass). Also, why not add big police chases and radio traffic reports.
      Please improve AI reactions (breaking) and give them better lights. It would be good to get light signal from AI vehicle, that there is a speed/road control ahead.

      Delete
    5. You need to stop AI racing up on the inside and overtaking when using both lanes to swing late into a turn.

      Rather than going into turning lane, sometimes you need to stay in current lane and then turn across when you reach the corner (tight corners or longer/wider trailers) and so many times AI cars race up the inside and crash into me.

      Indicators (turn signals) are pointless in this game.

      Delete
  12. Please also animate the AI wheels, and if posibble the drivers also

    Add more type of cars, motorcycles, some bikes in the cities, pedestrians (on the zebra crossings also)

    Good job till now, but the gamers expect from this game lot of reality !

    3. "...add buses to drive on ets2..."

      What part of Euro TRUCK Simulator 2 is so very difficult to understand? Unless I've missed something in my several years on this planet, Buses and Trucks are quite separate entities.

      "...Please add double trailler..."
      I've said this before, and, quite honestly am getting sick of it. In the UK at least, Double trailers are actually illegal. Therefore, unless you want the UK to be removed from the game, or want it to be not much more than an arcade game, double trailers are a ridiculous idea.

      Delete
    4. Please add double trailer! please! kkkkkkk

      Delete
    5. At double trailer point, GTA San Andreas is better truck simulator than ETS2

      Delete
    6. UK is a relatively small part of ETS2.

      If they are indeed illegal everywhere in UK I'm sure they can be omitted from being implemented for deliveries there and kept to European locations that allow them, rather than your solutions of either adding double trailers and removing UK from map or keeping UK but never adding double trailers.

  25. Sounds good.

    I have two requests that will never happen.

    Change how company skins work so we can

    1: Paint each type of trailer Krone/Schmizt/Tankers individually again like UKTS.

    2: Paint BOTH sides of the trailer individually.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Simply great news. A massive thanks to heap onto all the rest from me also.

    The decisions you are taking are good ones. The WoT really is intriguing and we all wait to see this resource mature and develop.

    The AI update will be most welcome and I think, if done well, can refresh this title [as if that is needed yet] and give it a huge boost which will serve the future well as you build out your vision, one bit at a time! We're all here enjoying the ride.

    Is that list of ideas still the same size or growing? I bet it is not getting shorter but I encourage all efforts to attempted to!

    Congratulations on the company growth. This is perhaps the best news of all. Don't over-stretch though ! Make sure each step is on solid footing 'cos as a customer, I want SCS to be around producing great stuff for a long time to come.

    Finally, SCS, thanks for the continued support of the mod community.

    1. Speak for yourself . If you paid attention , multiplayer is not in plan for now . STOP asking for it !

      Delete
    2. He's just another user asking for things without really knowing what's involved. In my dream world, this game would have multiplayer. As a decent programmer, I can tell you that SCS doesn't have the current following or pockets to achieve this goal. I hope this is the step that WOT is getting us closer to, but without our loyal patronage to see continued growth of the series this dream won't happen. We, the loyal trucking sim players, have to continue to bank roll this endeavor with our hard earned cash for years to come. SCS will continue to see my money.

      Delete
    3. Multiplayer is probably years down the road, well true multiplayer. In all honesty, I don't think it'll work as good as people think. Where there will be honest gamer, servers will ultimately be taken over by trolls only interested in crashing and being idiots. Once that happens, multiplayer will be dead for the dedicated follower, so all the resources put in will be wasted.

      As far as not giving a shit... they spent a LOT of time on the expansion map, released a new truck (that people asked for) and have spend nearly a year rewriting the AI (something else people wanted).
      On top of that, they are working on American Truck Simulator (yet another thing the fans want) and Bus Driver 2 (which, surprise, is another game the fans want).

      You're not going to get everything you want the exact way you want it. They are still a small indie developer who are developing games that their fan base wants. In order to give people extras they want, money has to come in.

      Delete
    4. if the game was multiplayer and had a Lan option you defeat the trolls right there also you could just have privet servers

      Delete
    5. Lolol, this noob.

      Multiplayer is hard to rewrite. And keep in mind, although they can unmod the servers, I have truck skins and mods in my game which will crash if you leave the skin but uninstall the mod. This means you cannot run with mods.
      And as said above, there will ofcourse be 10% true truck gamers and 90% trolls who f*ck your game up

      In another note: they didn't give a damn about the community, they don't did that ever, 100 other projects first etc...

      Just What the F*ck. The COMMUNITY has been nagging about for instance DLC/Map extensions, new trucks, etc etc. What do you mean by not listening to the community? If they get a lot of request that could be fixed in time, they will make the COMMUNITY happy.

      And another note, to everyone:
      DO NOT NAG SO MUCH AT SCS!!!!
      They gave you everything the most of you wished for, and you go nag about Bus Simulator? THIS IS GODDAMN TRUCK SIMULATOR!
      And I see a lot of "please set the Antos in", too. Well, a real truck needs a license, eh?

      Be happy with what you got. ETS is one of the best games I have ever played.

  41. Agree about the sound on some trucks (although volvo seems better now), having said that the new iveco sounds to me that the air pump is running constantly.

    That said AI traffic is the biggest pain at times - 2 bad faults: 1) traffic ignores yield/give way lines at junctions and traffic stops to near the junctions for you to be able to pull the trailer out without hitting it.

  46. SCS, I've got 2 questions, please respond:

    1. Do you allow using ETS2 gameplay footage on YouTube if the commentary isn't directly related to ETS2? For example, talking about some news while driving in ETS2.

    2. Any chance you'll add an option to roll down the windows of a truck to enjoy ambient sound? I know the cabin should be soundproof, but an option to roll down the window to hear the full engine sound or more importantly - all the great ambient sounds effects would be great.

    Please let me know, SCS, especially reg. the first question. I do see people on YouTube talk about random stuff while playing ETS2, but I would prefer to make sure that you're OK with that :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. This is the content sharing licence from their website - http://www.eurotrucksimulator2.com/ets2_content_sharing_licence.pdf

      2. Something like that may be on their list somewhere, but usually we have found that they add things people want (in that "people" is more than one or two, but a larger feature request)

      Delete
    2. 1. Thanks, I read this and that's why I had to ask because points 1.2 and 1.3 are inconsistent. The first one says that the content must obey the rules of the service you post it on such as YouTube's "Fair Use", but point 1.3 says that if it doesn't obey them, then they must obey "Fair Use" so... if it's not Fair Use then it should be Fair Use?

      Makes no sense and "Fair Use" actually means that it must be used for educational purposes or as a mean to "make a point" - present the footage for explanation. Which would suggest that talking about something else while showing footage would be not allowed as it won't meet the "Fair Use" condition.

      2. From what I read here in the comments some people (not just me) ask for audio improvements - better engine sound etc. and although rolling down the window wouldn't be necessary, it seems to me almost like an obvious thing to have in a truck sim - I'm not requesting having an in-game arm to stick out the window, just let some ambient sound in for better immersion :)

      Delete
    3. If you read the license as a whole, it's quite clear. SCS gives you a license to post personal content (and monetize it if you want) as long as it falls under the rules of whatever site you are posting to.
      If there is abuse or misuse, then that license can be terminated. Who makes that decision? It's wholly up to SCS and they have the right to make the decision.

      As far as, as you put it, ambient noises in the cab. If you are so adamant it be part of the game, then create a mod. SCS have provided that avenue.
      As I said, it may or may not be on their list, but it will depend on priorities. What may seem simple may not be as simple to code into the game, especially when they have their resources in much more pressing areas. If enough people want it, then it may be added at some stage.

      Delete
    4. Reg. license - as a whole... yes, that's the impression I get. I also got the impression that SCS seems quite loose about it and actually appreciates people using footage from ETS2 which pretty much advertises the game for them, but just wanted to make sure.

      Reg. cabin - I've added it as a suggestion to the forums, we'll see, but I must say... thanks you so much for the idea. Seems simple, but... yes, I can just make it as mod. I hope it's possible, though, I'm not a modder (yet), I know there are sound-related mods that change the engine sound, for example, but not sure if the volume of ambient sound is adjustable.

      Anyway, thanks for the idea, I'm facepalming now why didn't I just thought of it ;)

    1. I for certain dunno why you guys are hellbent for a multiplayer mode in a simulator. There are very and I say very rare chances of any of the two friends to meet in transit or form a convoy, unless you deliberately change your route and even if you guys do, what will you do next? Sit at the gas station or rest stop and chat before moving along?

      Other than this I fail to fathom what purpose would a multiplayer mode serve. The map is huge already and will extend more once SCS introduce more map extensions which I believe they would considering the demand for it. So -1 for multiplayer.

      Many would agree that SCS focus their time on improving the realism, physics, AI interaction, business side and more to take this to the next level of awesomeness rather than MP.

      No hard feelings brother but MP just doesn't make sense in a sim.

      longer trailer don't work in short time (while changing code) because of huge prefab and map updates are needed for that.
      more different trailer don't work in short time (while changing code) because new models cost huge develop-time.
      more traffic-trailer is maybe possible, if they make a slider in options for amount of traffic then slow computers can handle this.

    2. I bet the ones crying for double trailers are also the ones that will most likely not even be able to handle them. If they knew what they are talking about then they would know that there will never be double trailers in ETS2.

    3. Double trailers are easy bro what are you talking about?

      I bet the ones crying for double trailers NOT to be included are the ones that wont be able to handle them.

  58. Guys, we need in game "truck+small trailer" that is something what is missing here too !!
    Traffic AI must be more realistic, more cars on roads, sometimes are happened some traffic brakes on highways too, so it must be everything more realistic.
    In global, game is going in good way.

    An if is possible, give Us "option button" for dissonect AutoSave in game...sometimes is a little bid disturbing, specially for those, who have low quality graphical card ! It saving game every 5.min...sometimes several times in 5.minutes !!

    I wish you guys a lot of good days in future !!

  73. SCS , I want to thank you for the game ETS2 and wish you success and prosperity! Please let a DLC with old (80-90 years) and new trucks ( MP4 , Antos , DAF CF , Euro 6 , etc.) . Add in game 1 Dust and dirt on the truck (especially on the glass ) 2 puddles and potholes 3 Par smoke ( exhaust from a truck ) 4 after rain and fog in the morning ( sometimes strong) , etc. 5 more variety in the ai traffic (motorcycles , old cars and vans , etc.) 6 can add hands on the steering wheel (as in the Race Driver GRID ) http://i59.fastpic.ru/big/2013/1106/cc/beb751fbf4219631bfdb3ebdd0f366cc.gif ? it would be nice = ) . Also, please fix the sound of one winking lights ( they sound wrong) 2 windscreen wiper 2 positions (permanent and intermittent operation ) . Can I ask a lot but the game will be more realistic :) Thank you.

    2. brand-licensed trucks don't have any dirt, and much smoke is not political correct to. they NEVER look ugly in the game.
      there is only truck where scs can do this, its the majestics. but scs have no ressources for that, look at the scs shedule, they plan tons of other things.

      Delete
    3. in real life, too, do not smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe? and the cars do not get dirty with mud?

    4. Насчет грузовиков несогласен, это дело личного вкуса и каждому не угодишь, а что касаемо игрового процесса, то я согласен игре не хватает суровости. Грязи, пыли, разбитых дорог, ржавчины, про внешние повреждения пока промолчу, хотя бы выше перечисленное сделалиб, а то все как в сказке. Не хватает той самй сложности которая следует с профессией Дальнобойщика. В общем +1

  88. in my opinion, the map needs rework, cause all the highway crossroads, and not only, looks like each other...maybe are 4-5 variations, but this is not enough
    ..and more decorative objects in some places, and people on the streets in the portions of the cities

  89. I really hope that one of those major traffic rewrites is making ALL of the AI front wheels moving right or left according to the turn they are taking, so the cars won't look anymore like toys running on a rail

  91. Привет из России! Спасибо за отличную новость, вы идете в правильном направление, но в будущем хотелось бы увидеть multiplayer)
    Физика-надеюсь увидеть более реалистичную и сложную физическую модель, чтобы в поворотах все таки приходилось снижать скорость.
    AI-надеюсь их станет побольше, без нагрузки на компьютер. Хочется видеть трафик который так же снижает скорость на поворотах до скорости игрока.
    Еще раз спасибо)
