Review Renders

From time to time, before new vehicles make it into the game, our artists are creating renders from the work in progress models for internal review purposes. Until a vehicle model is complete and ready to be imported it into the game, this is the way for us to understand if we are on the right path with the 3D model.

This almost-finished T680 looks so cool on the renders that we thought you might enjoy seeing it as well!

    2. You want Cab overs... go play ETS 2... this is an American game.

    3. Cab overs ARE American, you jerk.

    4. Not so much anymore. No one really uses them for long haul. Our roads are made to a reasonable size, and regular trucks ride better. It'd be neat to see some retro cab overs, I'd agree. However I think that's something for modders to add.

  7. It would be nice when you start a company. you can only buy old used trucks. get parts from junkyards to maintain your trucks. As you earn more money and level up newer trucks become available.

    1. Availability should not depend mainly on level, but affordability, imo.

      Delete
    2. oh yea i agree, I did say - As you earn more money. But these trucks should have high mileage, rusty bodies which affect performance.

      It would be good to apply for contracts and these are affected by your company rating.

      Delete
    3. I doubt it that truck manufactorers will let SCS make their trucks look bad, so I don't think SCS will make used truck dealers. Too bad, I think it's actually a really nice idea.
      It'd make it a bit harder to start a company with crappy trucks and then work your way up.
      Oh well, after a few levels the bank is without a reason and no financial prospects willing to lend you $100,000 anyway, so you can cheat yourself in a daycab truck.

      I wish they made it a bit harder to get your own truck. But I cant deny that I took the loan as soon as it popped up. :P

      Maybe it'd be harder if we had to buy our own garage first, instead of getting one for free. I never got that anyway, you truck for a none-existing company in ETS, but you start with a shed... Why would someone who works for a company have a shed for his truck?...

      And I dont think truck manufactorers will be happy about crappy second hand truck with another name, since they still resamble their brand.
      For example: Mercedes in ETS 2 will sell new trucks and Majestic sells second hand trucks. MB probably won't be too happy about that and won't give their license I guess...

    4. I agree the forerunner trucks are fast keep up the goox work ; P

      Delete
    5. As a matter of fact, I was thinking about this today. I personally think that the starter trucks should be sleeper-less trucks such as those made by GMC and Mack, with with trucks that feature sleepers being unlocked once you put at least one skill point into long-distance hauling.

      Delete
    6. That would be a nice idea Shannon, however here in the states at least most people start off as over the road. Typically you have to work a year or more for a company and then they will give you a local route/routine where a day cab is fine. It's actually more realistic to start us long hauling but I get why that doesn't work gameplay wise.

  20. I'm pretty sure that SCS is going to merge the two continents into one game in future. They will release ATS with same map scale as ETS2, so why not to connect those maps in a new game called "Trans-Atlantic Truck Simulator". Maybe SCS will make map even bigger from 18WoS ET2 maps and call the game as World of Trucks!

    2. Surely it's got to happen eventually?

      Why would they have two separate maps when you could join them? Sure it'd be a bit more difficult but the end product would be much better! :)

  27. I just read a comment from one of the guys talking about merging continents and creating "Trans-Atlantic Truck Simulator". Just wanted to say this could be the most amazing idea I`ve ever heard. SCS might wanna consider it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Are we going to get it with the Kenworth 7-spoke wheels shown on Kenworth T680 website?

    http://www.kenworth.com/trucks/t680.aspx

    And will we get more than one cab option (76" sleeper) since you gave trucks in ETS2 three cab options?

    Will we get some tuning options like you can spec the truck in real life?

    http://t680configurator.kenworthtruckco.com/

    i.e. Fairings - none, partial, full (as you have in renders)
    Bumper - Painted (as you have in renders), unpainted, chrome
    Interior - Tan/Slate Grey & Vantage/Diamond VIT (Diamond leather inserts)

    Renders look great, I just hope this means you got licensing approval from Kenworth now.

    1. SCS has showed daycabs, sleepers and flattops already and there are some pictures floating around on the web that show a Peterbiltwith tuning parts.
      And even if SCS won't be creative with accesoiries, modders will probably come up with all sorts of cool parts, just like they did with ETS 2's trucks... Eeerrr... Well... The ETS 2's Scania...

      (No idea how this reply from me showed a couple of comments up)

    2. I agree, Strangerberry. ATS will be leaps and bounds ahead of ETS 2. And with newer features modders will take advantage of it quickly, with some cool additions.

      Delete
    3. Oh you saw it in some early development screenshots.

      Tell me more about things that will make it to the final release.

      Remember how they showed pics of double trailers in ETS2 and then they totally ended up in the final game!

  42. Looks absolutly beatiful and again with a great eye for detail!
    10 nuts on the wheels, a mirror mounted above the passenger side window, antennas, it all looks great!

    I just hope all trucks will be high quality in ATS. In ETS 2 the MANs, DAFs, the old Ivecos, Mercedeses, Renaults and the old Volvos are just so notibly worse than the premium trucks. They're still good, but they're just not as good as the new models.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Not sure about Mercedeses and old Volvos, but DAFs, old Ivecos and Renaults are low quality. MAN is quite nice, but satnav is extremely poor quality. I wouldn't mind if SCS improved those models.

  46. One can Only Assume that ATS is still far from release. So I think we'd all like an update on the DAF Euro 6 for ETS 2 that you started in November how far is that from completion ? Why no updates on the truck ?

    Also SCS please make the DAF Euro 6 interior realistic with the right trim colors.
    Don't do what you did with the Volvo FH 2012 the real truck has a black greyish trim but you made it a yellow cream color.
    I mean you have the licence from the manufacturers so you can make interior with the right trim/colors

    2. I think what there saying about the interior is the real volvo is not yellow cream interior which is true and would prefer grey and black like the real volvo truck interior. I think SCS could have done better job with the interior and not used yellow cream. So I guess theyd like SCS to make the new DAF interior they way it is in the real truck.

  48. Bence ETS2 oyununun haritasını daha da genişletip tüm Avrupa kıtasına yaymalısınız. Daha uzun yollar, daha çok ülke ve bu ülkeleri şehirlerine yolculuk etmek oyunun daha geniş ülkelerdeki kitlelere ulaşmasını sağlayacaktır. İyi çalışmalar.

  51. How about log books so you have to log your hours like a real trucker? Or break downs on the highway? Those sort of things should be allowed and adds to the experience of being a driver.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Am I the only that thinks ATS will be added into ETS 2 with a DLC?

    Didn't anyone noticed that since 1.9 versions they added in options->gameplay the line Region Presets with: Continental Europe, UK and USA?

    I don't think that USA is there for nothing.

    Didn't you noticed that since a few versions there are buses station that are even in the GPS?

    Try to think at those things, because I see a future integration of American Truck Simulator and maybe the new upcoming Bus Simulator in ETS 2.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I myself hope they're going to release ECS and ATS this way. I think the best way would be to release those games as standalone expansions, like Simbin's RACE expansions, or Bohamia's ArmA II OA, etc. They can be bought and used separetly, but if you have both of them, you can use all the content in a single game, without switching to the other. The idea of having an intercontinental road transport corporation transporting passengers, and hauling in Europe and North-America sounds great.

      Delete
    2. I probably don't know any better about this than you do, but to my mind the fact that there's a "Region presets" option doesn't necessarily indicate that ATS will be integrated into ETS2. I mean, couldn't the effect your choice in that "Region presets" line has right now already be what SCS intend(ed): Selecting all the units and the clock notation used in your country/region with only one single click instead of having to change everything in the "REGIONAL SETTINGS" manually? I'm pretty sure there are players over in the US who prefer miles to kilometres or gallons to litres. If I had an American game with the option of using °C instead of °F, I would also make use of it as I don't have a too great feeling for the latter unit, °C is much simpler. Just an assumption...

  58. So what about adding International truck right after 2006 models and road train ? :P

    Ps. Nice work :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We won't see road trains.

      SCS took it out because they found it too hard to program with their newer, more "realistic" physics since STDS, ETS2.

      Unless that is why they made the physics even more arcade-like in latest patch, to allow for doubles in ATS.

      Either way we lose. Worse physics with road trains, or better physics without road trains.

      And "style" doesn't come to mind when I see your plastic covered boxes on wheels. I guess criticism is a two-way street.

      Delete
  60. We would really encourage SCS to also include the classic style trucks such as the Peterbilt 379 and the Kenworth W900, etc. That would be awesome! Maybe create and addon expansion for classic trucks alongside the new ones?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think SCS will, but there are a million 379 & W900 mods for games like Haulin that will be converted to ATS. Heck, even ETS2 saw a few of these models converted and most of the people who will make/convert trucks for ATS didnt even mod ETS2, it was mostly Russians.

  64. Dear SCS,
    I have 2 questions:

    2. How many cabins are you going to make for the new Actros, becouse there are 6.

    Thanks!

  67. Дорогие разработчики, очень, на мой взгляд интересный вопрос: когда вышло платное обновление Going East, вы убеждали нас, что следующие территориальные DLC будут выходить чаще, так как у вас очень много времени заняла полная переработка движка, но уже прошло больше пол года, а вы даже не показали какие страны будете добавлять. хотя в начале года вы упомянули такие предстоящие обновления

    ReplyDelete
  68. These are beautiful pictures SCS keep up the great work. One question though. Is it possible to have the gameplay similar to UK or German Truck simulator where you start out driving for a company and work your way up to buying your own truck and becoming an Owner/Operator? I really enjoyed that style of gameplay as it is more realistic. Anyways keep up the great work and I look forward to hearing more news on ETS2 and ATS

    ReplyDelete

    1. i'd suggest a yes/no solution: you can choose from these 2: do i want to start my own company from the beginning like in ETS2 or do i want to start like in GTS and work for someone before i start
      but nice idea!

      Delete
  69. Let us have a home with a garage where we can store say 3 trucks, and 3 trailers in the yard.

    Perhaps have a few possible locations where we can have our house, and once purchased it shows up on the selected part of the map, so we have a bit of choice where we work from.

    Perhaps a rest bonus (RPG style) if we sleep at home.

    And if we want we can hire other drivers to drive the trucks we are currently not using (kind've like ETS2 but trucks are only given away on a job-by-job basis, not permanent), and we get to decide what jobs they do, and have to manage them a bit, trying to organise trips that we can find return jobs from in advance etc to maximise profits and keep the wheels turning.

    There are so many different things you could do to expand on the gameplay for ATS, but I realise time is your limiting factor but please SCS try to innovate a little bit and give us new opportunities and more options to play different ways. I think ETS2 is a bit too linear and lacking decisions and freedom as well as not being friendly to role-playing (which lets face it, at some level you are all role-playing being a truck driver).
