There's always something to improve...

Today's post digest: state of the upcoming ETS2 1.9 patch, sneak peek at graphics team work in the area of vegetation.



We know that you are eagerly anticipating the release of Euro Truck simulator 2 update 1.9; we hear your complaints that already quite some time ago we hinted that it would be out "soon." We definitely do not want to delay the release, but thorough testing in closed beta keeps revealing more and more little yet annoying problems and bugs. We'd like to make a good impression right out of the bat, even in the planned open beta pre-release, so we would like to ask you for a bit more patience. It's not just tuning and bug fixing, now that we are close to release, there is also significant effort under way so that we don't ruin the work of mod makers with the new update. Existing mods out there unfortunately too often contain semi-broken assets and data, and we need to add backwards-compatibility layer into our data loading code to workaround the problems. Hopefully important existing mods won't break too badly and can be fixed where necessary and made compatible with the updated game.

Shifting gears a little.

Our graphics teams are always thinking about how we could improve the visual perception of the game world. We though you might like a sneak peak into raw graphics development, sort of a glance under the hood of what's coming...

One such area of graphics improvements is vegetation. Perhaps our current vegetation is 'good enough' for some, but we see that there is still plenty of work ahead of us on improving it. We always felt we could push for more variety to further distinguish the feeling of driving in various countries; also mix up some bushes between trees, add different tree types, and even improve the look and feel for the grass... Overall going for little more realistic feel.

Here are some work in progress screenshots, and the references that the graphics team is using during their discussions:

  1. Nice SCS, I hope for you that your ''loyal fans'' stop complaining about stuff now.
    But I think you should make these sort of post more often, I think it's pretty interesting and it also shows that you still care (which is kinda weird, since the game's already two years old :P).
    News is always good I guess, eventhough it's bad news, it surtainly shows that you're working on it.

    Good luck! ;-)

    1. They are doing a great job, though the old code isn't quite useless. In my opinion they should keep the old code for most of the cars with a German plate. Cause that's how most of 'em drive in real life. Don't get me wrong, there are German people who can drive, but most of them drive like shit. Unable to cope with merging lanes, failing on entering highways and more. Germans are great technicians however they should be forced to drive autonomous cars

    2. You see well this status. SCS should post more often about they are doing. But this environment is breathtaking. :)

    3. is ther any chance that scs will open up all roads in the future, it's sometimes tedious that the quicker routes are blocked off

  5. its possible to make it in hd ? and add in the game what modders do : tandem truck and in the traffic some emergency vehicles....and another thing is : when a road is blocked delete these barrier and make some construction yard or some accidents with police car , ambulance...its more real .
    thanks.

  7. Great! I don't mind waiting longer for 1.9 if you need time to polish stuff... writing an entirely new AI/physics engine is obviously going to throw some hefty issues! The sole reason I am saving up all my monies to upgrade my terrible laptop with 21fps ETS2 to a gaming desktop is to run future SCS games on max settings as I realized early on that your graphical content was going to get better and better... I was right!

    1. Actually as far as I remember SCS never said anything about new physics. AI only. Physics has only minor tweaks and improvements.

    2. @infinity: They said something about new suspension code, Imho thats a bit more than minor.

      Delete
  8. First, contratulations on improving the 3D engine and visual quality. As you say, it makes the game feel more real.

    But also, a small constructive criticism. If you want to go towards realism, you should get rid of one of the biggest flaws that all these game series has: extremely wide roads.

    I know you wrote a post about this on the past, explaining that you don't want things too hard for people playing on keyboard, or for those that lack some ability controlling the steer, therefore making the game a bit frustrating.

    Having introduced the mouse controller, and now that you focus more on realism (both world + truck driving), I consider this something major, as it changes completely the driving feeling, not only on highways, but also on two way roads, specially on narrow ones with lots of curves.

    If you watch OMSI (the bus simulator), it's extremely hard to learn it, first because you can't even start the bus without reading a manual or pushing random buttons, and second because it barely fits on the city-lanes. You have to constanly watch around to make sure you are on your lane, and be careful on roundabouts and bends. But there you have, lots of people playing it, and guess what, they all eventually learnt how to move on the city with a bus (in game), how to approach the bus stops without hitting the curb, etc...

    Basically, what I'm saying is that even if at start it feels a bit hard, eventually you learn where your truck is, you know your distances, and the general truck-driving feeling is completely different, making it an even more realistic simulator and pleasant driving.

    Just my two cents.
    Thanks,
    Regards.

    1. Big +1 to this whole post!!!

    2. Well, don't forget that OMSI was made by two enthusiasts with extreme focus on simulation whereas this game also reaches gamers with a more casual approach that play because it's so relaxing ;)

      When it comes to the simulation part of the game, I find some other issues more disturbing such as unrealistic motorway exits, especially in Germany (probably due to reuse of content), as well as sometimes insufficient signage and strange speed limits.

      Delete
    3. Please SCS, read this post and consider it.

      Delete
    4. +1

      More challenging roads would just be great! And even if you implement some more narrow roads, that doesn't mean that the whole map would have to look like that. But I would really appreciate if the player was able to select what kind of roads the GPS shall choose in order to get exactly the driving experience they want. For instance, sometimes I really like doing a relaxed ETS2 trip, although I often find some stupid AI behaviour as the only real challenge a bit annoying (I'm looking forward to the new AI and hope it will exceed my expectations).

      Delete
    5. Aye! I've been wanting more of a challange since like the beginning. Especially when parking.. Would love an extra reward for parking f-n flawless. And some smaller roads would be awesome, or at least good old "wide load" cargo. Just something to make it a bit more difficult.

      The argument for wide roads seems fair enough, but we that would want more of a challange shouldn't suffer I think.

      Delete
    6. True, the game is too easy right now. It's kind of boring. If you ask me, Scania Truck Driving Simulator, even the open map, was awesome, a lot more challenge and it felt like you were driving a truck and you have to be careful.

      Delete
    7. just No. because, the OMSI team is much smaller than the SCS-team. They need much more time for updates. They can't make graphic improvments. They can't change the game-engine. OMSI doesn't give that much return of investment. You need a mix between mainstream-arcade-customers and hardcore sim-like-truck-driver-customers.

      If ets2 gets more difficult then the scs-team gets smaller and we get less updates...

      Delete
    8. Personally, I like it the way it is. I belong to the category of 'casual players' and appreciate the ease of the gameplay as it is now. I can understand that there are players who want to have more challenge. That's fine with me, but please, don't make a high level of difficulty the default, or rather, the only available difficulty in the game. I don't know if it is possible to adjust the level of difficulty in form of an additional option in the gameplay menu.

  21. The pictures look very promising. However, I've got the impression that the grass could be a bit more densely populated so that you can't see that much of the ground texture between the individual tussocks any more. You (or at least I) really see that and it doesn't look as good as it could yet. Have you maybe already thought about adding a grass density slider to the graphics options? I'm curious what the new vegetation will look like when it's finished. Keep up your great work!

  28. Congratulations,

  31. Hello SCS

    I have been playing ETS2 version 1.7 for some time now. Any chance of fixing a bug where the truck gets painted pink even though you paint it some other color? Will this be fixed in 1.9?

    8. I bought the game and against piracy. But those who make fun of Ahmed should realize that the game got attention in several other countries where it was never considered for a release by SCS. I think those counties are in Asia & Africa, where the current price of the game is a whopping amount when they try to buy it online. So its 50-50 fault, 50 for piracy and 50 as SCS is not checking on the game price for those countries, which are good markets for SCS.

  37. There's always something to improve...

    -Realistic trailer coupling
    -Realistic suspension (and better physics modeling in general)
    -Physics to allow for jackknifing
    -Realistic physics for dirt roads (or remove them)
    -Double trailers
    -Huge oversize drop-deck trailers & loads (with weight bearing front dolly)
    -Possibility to overheat engine (i.e. if high revs held too long)
    -A way to wave traffic on, if they stop to let you in (because sometimes they do not leave enough room)
    -Improved physics so that fish-tailing at 100km/h creates 'tank-slapper' momentum

    if you want to make the game look like real life, please make the truck driving feel like real life too.

    2. Great news as the grass really goes into our inmersion. About the other changes, yeh, as Dimitris said, they are working hard on the physics and AI sytems. In my opinion the trailer attaching (as you said) and the parking areas (loading docks, and new buildings, objects) should be the next point for us to get a challenge into "simulation".

    4. To be honest, I'm with Annon on this one and his comment doesn't deserve the childish respones... (Not being an annon doesn't mean you got more rights or are correct all the time, get off your high horse.)

      It is kind of weird that just now they start working on something that's rather insignificant like grass...
      I think their time is better spent on the progress of ATS for example, but that's just me.

    5. This is also for the ATS smartass, grass also exists in america you know? And they have got a team of 30 devs and some of the are graphic devs and they just cant do physics, because they trained for the graphics

    6. Wow, I didn't know grass also existed in America...

      So you're saying that graphics dev aren't needed for ATS? Well I guess you're right. You showed that you're obviously very inteligent...

    1. As you asked who's looking at it when driving: I do and I've often thought that the game's vegetation could look a bit more realistic, especially the grass. By the way: I'm not sure whether the people working at this issue now would also do such a great job on AI or physics writing. They're probably specialized on their domain. Just an assumption =)

    3. Ey SCS doesnt only try to go into a DRIVING simulator, they also try to make our driving interesting, with really good looking places, and there goes the grass. And anyone can admit that it can be better, so why not put some efford into graphics as the truck models are already great done. Its really inmersive, and its GRAPHIC work, not physics or gameplay. Thats a different work, they wont have all the team doing the same thing, so just let the graphic designers try to improve on something.

      Delete
    4. You have no idea what is the essence of simulation games, writing such nonsense. I wrote that the graphics is important but this is not a basis of a good simulator. Driving realism, good physics, devadtation mechanism, variety of routes, company management, random events, all this stuff affects on the gameplay. Graphics are just an addon especially that is prety good already.

      Delete
    5. Okey, lets let the graphic artists take some coffee for the physics, driving, etc. gameplay programmers. Thanks for your respect. Keep on thinking "grass" is the only thing all the team is working in.

  61. One thing that'll be nice to be added is an "instant" button for adaptative acceleration, for those who play with keyboard.

    ReplyDelete

    1. can u give a point & and/or a reason for that ?
      are u bored for (un)pressing the UP key or what ?

      Delete
    2. Adaptive gearbox*. There's already an option for this in game. When it's activated you press the gas pedal 100% and the gearbox change to a lower gear for more power. Keyboard is always 100%.
      I play with keyboard, and sometimes I want to overtake another vehicles faster or need more power to maintain speed for hillclimbing and need to press ESC, go to config, enable this option and continue playing, to have to do it again to disable the option.

      When I'm bored of pressing acceleration key, I activate Cruise Control. lol

      Delete
    3. With adaptive gearbox option enabled, it change gears around 2000rpm.
      With this option disabled, it change gears around 1500rpm.

      My suggestion is just to turn this proccess that I mentioned above more simple and faster.

      Delete
    4. I also think such a function would be useful for those who play the game only with mouse and keyboard. Rig 'n' Roll for instance has it. And I think the developers of that game generally had many very good ideas. I was glad when I saw that some of these ideas had been adopted in the development of ETS2, and I would love to see some more coming in future updates/games by SCS Software.

  65. Please improve the sensation of speed of the game? When I am 90km / h looks like I'm 60km/he when I'm at 30km / h feels like I'm at 5km / h. From 100km/ha sense of speed begins to be much like reality

    1. You are driving a TRUCK idiot!

      Delete
    2. Sense of speed, I believe is hard to convey in a game, without side monitors or graphics blur effects (think arcade racing games).

      To me 100km/h in this game feels like I'm doing about 100km/h. (At least after having experienced previous SCS games where 100km/h feels like 50km/h).

      Anonymous, how does vehicle choice negate feeling of speed unless that vehicle is moving at a constant speed with no reference point of view to the exterior world? (ie not a truck)

  66. muito bem SCS parabéns....
    Não façam nada às pressas para não ter problemas futuros....parabéns!!!

  67. Hey SCS you are great, not only new trucks but new environment also. And all of that for only 30 euros plus 10 euros for DLC. It isn't expensive considering you're giving us all this for free in your game. I'm loving everything you put in ETS2. Just the thing with steam is little annoying, but everything else is perfect. Keep up the good work. bolus (World of Trucks)

    i think thay forgot to put the game pictures whit it.
    ;)

    It looks very good, can't wait to test the new patch
    one thing that disapoints me alot is the ai at the moment. it does stupid things and does not always whats out where you drive. Thay change lane whitout even looking if you are driving there. just turn on the turn signal and go.

    even alot more cars/trucks as ai will be nice. the roads on the highway are to emty

    ReplyDelete
  69. the waiting doesn't affect me so much (patience is the key for brilliant stuff),
    but seriously, there are LOT of other things to improve.
    I didn't know if it is possible now, but I would love to see in the future in ETS2 , ETS3, ATS :
    - hands on wheels
    - better parking support/assist (more real looking and a bit difficult)
    - detailed trailer coupling
    - short video (~ 4 sec) for loading- unloading, like a cut-scene
    - other trailers - with specific loads (long, "heavy", wide, maybe doubles, with
    more type of pipes, with more types of tanks, the same for timber wood, with army tanks and stuff, with boats, )
    - multiple point delivery (2 or 3 would be enough)
    - add ignition battery damage, and lights damage, etc, ...and engine random (rarely) stop...
    - more upgrade parts (+ 3-4 tires would be perfect, some other Lumen Style Lights, other front bars )
    - 6x2 and 6x4 sideskirts, and exhaust
    - interiors needs a little rework, at least @ last Scania (and the same for exterior)
    - the GPS should let u show & pick the fastest route, or the shortest one...
    - and the map looks so unfinished (more exactly - half made), 2 more DLCs are welcomed (Go North and SouthWest)
    - the few the mods remains, the better the game become (it's a saying : the good / welldone work is that into just u are involved, (not thirdparty)) : the proof is in this post also !!!
    - the eternal problem with the police, ambulance, firevehicles, and other traffic (pedestrians in cities, more types of little cars, and also small "trade cars" bikes, motors, tractors where is the case, train route in the proximity of the road where is the case, not only where is crossing)
    - real engine sounds, crashes.. throttle and brake sounds
    -may a say about interaction with hired drivers ? (I mean see them on the route at least) :)
    - + DAF, Renault, MAN, Majestic , a payed DLC, or better included 2 and 2 in the MAP upcoming 2 DLCs
    and so on...
    (the AI and others physics problem hope u solve in the 1.9 patch)
    anyway, till now the game has grown up, hope & wish from now on, the same !!! Good job SCS

  70. Hey SCS, what a brilliant job you have made of ETS2. I find it completely compulsive playing. I'm just disappointed that I ran out of drivers before I purchased 'Going East'. All these new Driver Agencies and still no drivers to be found. I am making money like there's no tomorrow but nothing to spend it on. 152 Drivers, 154 trucks, more available garage slots than you can shake the proverbial stick at and around £40,000,000 in the bank. I've upgraded all my trucks (mostly 750hp Volvos with a very few 730hp Scanias) to the sensible limit with top of the range wheels, extra lights, horns etc., but without being able to expand my business any further, it all becomes a bit pointless. I guess if you are not going to make an extra supply of drivers available, the only option is to create a new profile and start again. Incidentally, that situation also happens in Rig'n'Roll. You eventually get to a point where the gas stations no longer supply any fuel, no matter how many trucks or money in the bank you have, so it's back to square one and start over.
    A bit of competition with rival companies (as per Rig'nRoll) would be good.
    A Chart showing comparative performance of selected drivers over a certain period also.
    More info on driver performance over a longer period than just the preceeding week.
    MORE DRIVERS. That would do it for me.

  82. In pictures 2,3 & 5 I can see a massive difference between the Google images & your screenshots. The difference that I see is the huge gap between the roads edge & the white line. If a real truck driver on the Google images needed to pull over to the side, they would have no choice but to go off road. In your screenshots that is sadly not the case.

    ReplyDelete
  83. your work is getting perfect mostly in vegetation quality
    But however I have a doubt:
    my computer is weak to play heavy games (high quality graphical) so was wondering if the game will run smooth on my computer without acting crashes or more compicaçoes

    Thanks for reading

    I hope answers

  84. Little things do make a big difference and I like the idea of making countries more "country specific" - so if you can remove the sunflower fields and hay stacks from the UK that would be a start :)

  87. I bought the game and against piracy. But those who make fun of guys who use pirated game should realize that the game got attention in several other countries where it was never considered for a release by SCS. I think those counties are in Asia & Africa, where the current price of the game is a whopping amount when they try to buy it online. So its 50-50 fault, 50 for piracy and 50 as SCS is not checking on the game price for those countries, which are good markets for SCS.

    I bought ETS2 weeks ago and it's amazing! it's very beautiful to see your company growing up little day by day.
    As mentioned, it could be nice to add seasonal changes to environment. Could be possible link seasonal changes to gaming weeks in order to see changes during gameplay?
    It could add more excitement to gameplay as you have handle loss of grip during snowfalls, or drive in heavy fog in autumn.. I know that it would need probabily a heavy modification of the code, .....maybe patch v2.0?

  101. Excellently looking! Why don't you guys add realistic damage for the truck. You know, glass shatter. It would make the game a lot better. Oh... and add the house too on the picture before the last. Try to add some wild animals like in Scania TDS.

    ReplyDelete
  102. +1 for glass damage and some wild animals
    in meantime, I did not see yet "real" forest along the roads, in Austria for example, and i'm sure not only there must be mountain/forests near highways.
    I have the strange feeling that the droved distance /speed ...is not proportional with the reality, if u know what I mean. (arrive too quick from a point to another)
    and hell yeah, it would be good some rework on the existing DAF and MAN, but also introduce the new ones.
