ETS2 update 1.9 is live

The highly anticipated AI update (and also the largest update so far) for Euro Truck Simulator 2 has just been released for everyone.

It took us a while, but it's finally here! We want to say thanks for amazing support of everyone who has helped us with beta testing and reporting remaining problems with this patch. We have been through a very rigorous public feedback loop - and over 20 intermittent beta builds! It has taken us longer than we anticipated to finalize the game update, but as a bonus we have managed to work around critical compatibility problems with several popular mod packages.

As mentioned in the previous blog post, this update doesn't include only AI changes, but also other improvements.

Code:

  • Brand new traffic AI system;
  • Oculus Rift support (with the -oculus launch option - this will be improved in the future), now also in the retail version;
  • Early support for gamepad-controlled mouse cursor;
  • Improved handling of automatic gearbox (more gears, interaction with cruise control);
  • Improved compatibility with semi-broken prefabs used in mods;
  • Improved error handling in radio playback;
  • Updated defaults for the Xbox 360 controller in the input wizard to provide a better initial experience.

Models:

  • Scania Streamline improvements (model, textures, paint jobs, new parts and accessories) - you may need visit truck dealer and re-purchase some parts;
  • Volvo FH16 improvements (interior, wipers, shadows);
  • Iveco Hi-way improvements (dashboard computer, shadows);
  • Paintjobs are properly applied on add-ons in interior views;
  • Map improvements.

Sound:

  • V8 engine sounds for Scania R and Scania Streamline.
The full list of changes through public betas is listed in this Steam discussion thread.

Steam version will be updated automatically, retail patch can be found on the update page. We expect high amount of people trying to download this update and we are fairly sure our server won't handle it, so consider activating your key on Steam and downloading it much faster from Steam servers.

Modding info

If you want to make a mod for ETS2 or if your existing mod doesn't work in 1.9, please read 1.9 modding changes.

If you are using mods and some of them don't work, please be patient. ProMods with support for 1.9 will be released today (thanks guys for your bug reports for 1.9!), other map and physics mods (this includes weather mods etc. which can change physics values) may not work correctly.

    2. I shouldn't need to rely on a mod to fix it. I've mailed SCS about this problem months ago, but never got a reply. I hope they will fix this, because it's so annoying to be forced to switch lane last-second. (The AI vehicles don't really like me for doing that.)

    4. They are a small team working on several projects in parallel. Everytime SCS makes a blog post there are always assholes like AnonymousMarch 25, 2014 at 7:32 PM who demand things now. You people dont have patience. All the updates are free and you fuckers still complain so fuck you all. It doesn't matter when the truck was released and when the game was released. They didnt put the mp4 because they didn't get license from Mercedes. Now that they got license they will put the Actros MP4 in the game and what I said sounds fair.

    8. You seem a bit ungrateful, let me help you with that. They're by no means a big budget company. We're talking a 10 man/woman team. They're not only working completely with modders, but also updating the game as much as they can in the time they've allotted to themselves, which may not always work out as they hoped for as time progresses. Perhaps a simple "thank you" would suffice. Seeing as they could of done what a lot of big budget companies do and release their game as is and forgot about it entirely. Let's not forget that they've accomplished getting proper licenses for the trucks too, which is not only difficult to get from companies but expensive too. Obviously you have zero clue on what it actually takes to build a game, particularly what goes in behind the scenes such as getting the licenses for the trucks and tedious tasks such as that. Maybe you should either find a game that better suits your abusive complaints and or, better yet, further your education as your spelling is atrocious to say the least. You're acting like a 9 year old brat that didn't get what they want, you should be treated as such and therefore you should be sent back to your room, where you can refrain from using the internet and hopefully in the time you have to reflect on your negative comments you can pick up a dictionary.

    9. you sounds like an developer from this game !! AnonymousMarch 26, 2014 at 9:37 AM

    10. You still dont understand
      Firstly SCS is a small dev company and they work on many projects in parallel. Secondly a truck needs to be made first and then they have to test it before final release.You are very demanding because you ask so many thing at once and you cannot have them. I can confirm to you that it takes 6 months to create 1 truck. You will see new trucks on the game but you need to have patience. They were focusing on releasing 1.9 which slowed them down. The posted the DAF XF Euro 6 on November 26th 2013 which means that we might get it in April or May. They sold you a game without promising that they will add features and they made every free to us and you still complain! What can I say. You dont respect the hours that the programmers have spent making all this patches for FREE. They have worked there asses off and still working.

And for example the mb licence is lost since the game released in 2012 oktober !! The MP4 is out as 2011 before the game relaesed they should have so enough time to make the mp4 end !!! you little piece of shit sounds like an developer of the game looking finish !!

    15. They didn't get license from Mercedes at first place so thats why they didnt put the Actos MP4. Now they are coming closer so both sides will agree and we will have fully branded Mercedes trucks and the new mp4. I too paid for the game and dlcs but I want more things from SCS. More money=more features to be added.

      Delete
    16. You're obviously extremely dense and or a 12 year old child incapable of understanding the concepts behind making a video game. FYI, no I am not a developer of any game. I can, however, appreciate the time and effort SCS has put forth in a game they could of released AS IS, as most big budget companies do this sort of practice nowadays. It really isn't SCS's fault that they're unable to obtain the Mercedes license, a lot of car and truck companies refrain from allowing companies use their licensed vehicles because they're afraid of their name and vehicles being damaged. This is why big budget companies like Rockstar (The company that made Grand Theft Auto) do not have licensed vehicles in their game. If you want the Mercedes that bad, download a mod that puts it in the game. Mods aren't burdened by having to have a license in order to use the name. Perhaps if you think you can do better, or if you seem to think it's so easy to do, maybe you should make your own game and see how far you get.

  24. Thanks SCS. But the steering respons is bad, comparing to the 1.8 older patch.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Just a fucked-up version of 1.8.2.5 nothing more.
    I tried it and didn't like steering wheel behavior. it became a racing game.
    I'll stick with 1.8.2.5 thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah i uninstalled the game due to force feedback just not working, i have the G27 and it has no resistance regardless of what you do with the settings, give it a bit of left/right steer and the cab starts to list its pretty horrific.

      Delete
    2. Idiots, if you don't understand how you configure your G27 properly you should stick to playing Super Mario. I have a G27 too and after some tweaking it works perfect. It's not the game's fault.

      Delete
    3. you are the idiot who can't see the difference.
      steering wheel sensivity is totally fucked up. the game is now ets: most wanted, where you can turn 90 degrees just by turning sw 5 degrees.... Perfect example of ruining a game

    4. You obviously don't understand how your steering wheel works then.

    2. sorry for bad English, but here's what he writes : Unable to read fileI
      the game files were not modified.You can apply this update again after fixing the issue.
      More information about this issue might be available in the log found in C:\Users\Damir\Local\Temp\ets2_patch_0000000053320ECB
      and Thanks

      Delete
    3. From what you write I think you downloaded the patch and selected 'run' so that the patch runs actually from your temp folder.
      This could get you some issues like the one you're experiencing.
      Instead, try to redownload from www.gamershell.com: click download, then click again when your file is ready and then choose 'save file as' and choose to save it to your desktop.
      Extract that RAR-file, this will create a map on your desktop, open it and start your update.
      Works fine on my system :-)

  31. Surely all these "Well done comments" dont use a wheel, specifically the G27? Go in the game, move all the force feed back/resistance sliders one way, play the game and then go in the settings and move them the other, they simply do not work anymore the wheel dosent auto centre or try, there is no resistance even on full lock, no more power steering resistance when engine off, broken.

    1. I agree, the suspension is very weird right now.

      But now the 6x2 trucks have the same kind of weird wobble with 1.9.-.
      Also, the truck keeps shaking when you turn...
      As you said, it's a step backwards.

  52. My wishlist:
    - A simple Record & Replay facility. Last few minutes would do. I want to see my errors when something goes wrong. After all it's a simulator, right?
    - Pavement slippery when wet. This forces us (that's me and AI) to drive more carefully.
    - Some oncoming cars with high beams on. So that I get pissed off and flash them.

  57. SCS Team ,
    First of all - great job for the 1.9 update , I like it a lot.
    I want to let you know that playing with mouse is still not comfortable.Turning the steering wheel with mouse is good and it can be adopted, but controlling the acceleration and braking with mouse is very sensitive and difficult to master.
    I am sure you will overcome this problem and we will have good acceleration and braking control with mouse.

    Thanks SCS.

  60. Well for those getting an Error you need to disable all map packs as there is a fault with the update, Yes a fault... the maps have not been done correctly for the update there for causing steam to crash with the maps you have loaded. Disable all and the game will run.
    Been in contact with SCS and they only released going east, Poland, Czech etc so it not there fault.
    I have bases in tunis,Greece and spain at are no longer on the world map, I am hoping that this problem is fixed VERY VERY SOON as that was my main reason for buying the game.

  73. With the patch 1.9.22 SCS has shot an own goal. Now a lot of Modder and Mapper get further no more. Modding is no more possible at the moment.

    If SCS wants to sell only DLC's, they should say it here honestly. Then many will play no more ETS 2 and the Moddingszene will die. Then nobody more will play ETS 2, or buy it.

    Then more and more greetings will come absolutely: SCS = R.I.P.

  76. Many thanks to all the SCS team for my share of the update. My first trip anew was all in darkness to Zurich but already the many subtle improvements are apparent, including the "I" in AI. I look forward to seeing lots more when light dawns!

  78. Please reduce the steepness inside quarry's as I cannot get out with 25ton loads. Even with the 500hp V8 Scania.

    Wheels start spinning but cannot get traction in any way on the steepest pieces.

    2. You can also try driving on the outside of the bend up. Try to stay in one gear.

  79. Hi,
    What do you mean with 'more gears'. Does the truck now got up to 16 or 18 gears, or does the truck go from 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 etc, rather then 1 to 3 to 5 etc. Both of these I didn't spot yet. As last: those more gears, are these for simple and realistic automatic?
    Thanks for the nice update, keep going!

  84. I have terrible framerate after this update. I was playing everything maxed with 300% scalling, no MLAA, and having above 40fps in cities. Now it is like 17fps.

    i7 920 @ 3.8 + Phantom GTX580

  85. Good to finally have the update. Only issue that I have faced so far is the traffic buildup to the underpasses becoming grid locked as traffic seems to give way at any point blocking the path

    1. Agreed, I thought this new AI system had rectified this problem, but, apparently NOT.

  86. as to my above comment about the traffic was meant to state that traffic doesn't seem to give way leaving all roads completely blocked

  88. You guys ROCK!!!
    I wanna point out a few things about SCANIA:

    - A Scania without skirts/spoilers is a RARE sight in reality. The Highline remodeling was a good move!!!
    - Most new Scanias have their GRILLE painted the same as the rest of the truck. This should be implemented in the game!!

    Perhaps like this:
    -Older Scania remains same
    -Streamline with powerful engines would remain with black grille.
    -But Streamline with weaker engine would have the grille colored like the truck!

    Please consider!!!

  89. I wish so much they could take a little time for preetyfing all 7 old trucks in the game..i mean, bring them closer to reality, not tunning.
    Just more tires are welcomed.
    And show us they start the work for another MAP DLC, no matter how far, or not, they are. Hungary and Italy are unfinished, Spain, Portugal, and all Scandinavia..
    and last, resolve the BUGS with the physics from actual version .
    very good job with the new AI !!!

  90. Thank you for the info on the software update. Can't wait to try it out!!!

  91. Steering acts funny now. I have the Logitech GT and I could play the game without any problems with previous versions.

    With V1.9, steering became wobbly, as if there's a lag between the wheel and the game. You steer, the truck doesn't turn enough, steer a little more and suddenly it's too much. I had to switch the speed limiter back on because I can't drive at higher speeds anymore.

    Hope SCS releases a patch addressing this issue.

    1. I reply to my own post: I traded my truck (a Scania) with another (an MAN) and the problem disappeared. So the wobbliness was truck related. Go figure..

  92. A LOT of issues and bugs with the 1.9.22....

    1. My game crashes when trying to start engine in a Scania R 2009... (Have NO MODS, so it's NOT a mod conflict)

    2. Ai cars just suddenly "disappear" into thin air in front of me when driving...

    3. New AI is STILL useless... drivers are STILL driving like IDIOTS... NOT respecting red lights... Crashing in to me when I am standing still...

    4. Steering has become waaaaaay to sensitive and TOTALY SHIT with my G27 steering wheel...

    ...and the list goes on and on and on....

    This update has only been a HUGE dissapointment. I'm going back to version 1.8.x :(

  93. i want to read something new about the other developments - ATS ,WORLD OF TRUCKS and a new DLC !!!

  94. Congratulations, and thanks SCS!
    For future update, I suggest pearly paints for trucks and allowing to put personal images as decorations for trucks.

  95. Bonsoir,
    version toujours en test en ce qui me concerne mais premier bug rencontré avec IVECO High Way qui a un gros problème de comportement. Il se balade de droite à gauche, est à peine pilotable.
    Sur la même partie avec les mêmes réglages aucun problème avec de STRALIS ancien modèle.

    Autre bug, certains truck IA vont très très vite.... très très ! ;p

    1. Vous avez raison. J'ai eu le même problème. Les camions sont différents dans leur comportement. J'ai changé mon camion et il est ok maintenant.

      Delete
    2. Tu veux dire par là qu'en passant chez le concessionnaire et en achetant un camion "tout neuf" le problème est réglé ?
      Ce pourrait être logique en un sens... à essayer !

    3. Oui. J'ai échangé mon Scania pour un MAN et le problème est résolu.

  101. All this delayed time releasing this patch because of "thorough" testing and it was biggest redesign of game portions and it seems the majority prefer 1.8.2.5

    I can't believe people are saying you made the physics even easier, more arcade-like. The game was already more arcade physics than simulation.

    I have given up on American Truck Simulator being any different considering your biggest patch to date has made the game even further from a simulator.

    I can only hope another game company comes along and starts making proper truck simulators.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Perhaps your entire development team needs to suspend making patches for a while and just spend some time driving a real truck so you can come back and actually make a proper simulation game.
