Even more about the next BIG update

Let's continue previewing even more items that you can expect to experience in the upcoming Euro Truck Simulator 2 update to ver. 1.11. This update is under extensive testing now, and no, we still don't have a release date to announce, other than when it's done.


Today's post will be illustrated with images captured while testing deliveries around some of the new map areas: close to the city Klagenfurt am Wörthersee and the border between Italy and Austria.


As with all previous updates lumping together several months of continual development, the new update will touch pretty much every aspect of the game: physics, AI, simulation, and gameplay refinements.


Speaking of physics: We have added support for sway bar simulation. Refining the composition of truck suspension has given us more control over truck and trailer stability. We have also recalculated the center of gravity of all cargoes, achieving more individual behavior of the whole rig depending on what is being transported. Now if you apply too much vigor during cornering, flipping the trailer is a more likely possibility, especially for particular loads. At the same time, we still need to keep in mind that the game must be playable for people without a truck driver's license and experience, so it's about finding the right balance between providing simulation fidelity and giving the player assistance during driving.


There was also some work done to improve collisions of player's truck and AI vehicles, or situations when the truck is scrubbing the railing or other surface - vehicles now have more realistic inertia post-crash. Finally, we have re-created all scratch and crash sounds in the game. Remember our Demolition day?


On topic of sounds, while we have much more ambitious plans to improve our sound system in a considerable way in the future, we have finally listened to your feedback concerning imbalance between interior and exterior sounds, and provided a stop gap solution. For this update, where needed, we have altered and equalized the sound volume of in-cabin engine sounds and external engine sounds for all trucks.

  1. Sounds Excellent guys, I can't wait for this update! :)

    One point though
    "At the same time, we still need to keep in mind that the game must be playable for people without a truck driver's license and experience, so it's about finding the right balance between providing simulation fidelity and giving the player assistance during driving."

    I personally don't have an HGV license, but would still like to try the most realistic experience you can reproduce. I think the best way to achieve this, while still keep it playable for those who don't want it too difficult, would be to introduce a "hardcore mode" Which would push your ability to provide the most realistic experience possible, for those of us who want it, but without affecting newer/more casual players. As well as more difficult physics, and crashes, it could also add things like having to be more accurate when backing up to a trailer, so the fith wheel and kingpin, have to engage, before we're able to push T to make the final connection, and all the other realism touches, you've been inundated with in the past.

    Just my thoughts, either way, I look forward to the changes your bringing in the next update.

    1. That is exactly what I want to see in the game as well.

    2. I'm totally agreed with this point above.
      Even more than that, I've changed "income" to 0,07 from 1,0 and start the game again, so I got less money less powerfull truck, more realistic penalties for cargo damage, collisions etc.
      So I'd be exsited with possibility of "hardcore mode" too =))

      Though I can't wait for new update! You are awesome despite all negative comments of miserable minds here!
      Big up!

    3. I quess SCS thinks if we are not a truck drivers but just players, that means we would not handle with driving a real truck, so they are making arcade physics for kids. Or maybe they can't develop a real simulator for hardcore players?

      Delete
    4. SCS should make it realistic/hard and give options to turn on assists (or turn off certain features) for players who need it.

      I don't like how they just water down complete parts of the game to appeal to the lowest common denominator. It's not the way to make a simulator. Make it a proper sim as the base and put options to turn on/off the realistic elements that will apparently stop people from playing your game because they keep rolling their truck around corners and can't figure out why XD

      Delete
    5. Yes, we need assistance!

    6. "At the same time, we still need to keep in mind that the game must be playable for people without a truck driver's license and experience"

      I think this statement and belief is severely misjudged. People who play simulation games want it to be as accurate a simulation as it can be. I'm not a 747 pilot but I love the PMDG 747 as from what I understand it's a fairly accurate representation of flying that plane. I don't drive a bus but I love the fact that OMSI seems like a fairly realistic experience.
      The majority of your players want it to be as close to driving a truck as it can be not a watered down GTA version of driving a truck.
      Why do you think there are so many mods that alter the physics, weight etc?

      Ideally a truck sim for me would have
      a fairly accurate reproduction of a good size of part of the UK (that looks and feels like the UK not the same boring copy and pasted prefabs) expandable by DLC
      realistic driving experience
      dynamic traffic I,e approaching Birmingham on the M6 at rush hour you're bound to get backed up for quite a while.
      played in real time. i.e Penzance to Bristol is going to take 4 hours real time.
      a proper Virtual Cabin with switches you can either operate with the mouse or assign buttons to. (that way people could make they're own custom dash like has been done for OMSI)
      More varied loading docks
      I can go on and on but I think you get the picture.

      SCS you have a monopoly on truck sims at the moment but if a company came along such as MR software and made a truck sim to the standard of OMSI your games would become obsolete people would leave your games in droves to play a proper simulation.

      You need to stop pandering to the small minority of players and realise people play Euro Truck Simulator because the want as accurate a simulator as it can be. I think you really need to rethink your strategy on this.

    7. A "hardcore mode" option sounds like a pretty spot on solution making everyone happy.

      Delete
    8. Agree, would really be awesome with the Hardcore Mode!

      Delete
    9. The game would not have sold like it did without the accessibility to non sim players that it now has.
      While pure sim players may find it dumbed down too much and want it much harder, just remember this game being so well supported is largely due to it's being mainstream friendly.
      So think a bit before you all scream we want it harder as we like pain so very much, that not everyone playing this (in fact most people playing this) play it because it is fun and relaxing.
      Sure add a hard core mode, but make it not effect the core game that is currently very enjoyable to more than just the Masochists.
      If you want it real then go do it in real life, this is a game with a nice sim feature, lets not ruin it for everyone hey.

      Delete
    10. A mode with the most realistic physics possible would be great. If you are concerned about accessibility, let us turn on "hardcore physics" from the options menu and leave the default setup accessible.

      Delete
    11. OMSI?? fuck you, and creates shame in the face, say it's the simulator.

      Delete
    12. I totally agree, we need it to be more realistic and a hardcore mode would please everyone. After a while this game it starts to get boring, because there is no challenge right now. I haven't played this game for a long time because I got bored, it's too easy and the fun goes away really fast after more than 103h of play. Last time I've played was when the multiplayer was released, tested it with some friends.

    13. What is your post supposed to mean Anonymous june 18th at 5:19???? It makes no sense at all all i see is post written by a child who looks like he's just learnt to swear. If you've got a valid point to make then fair enough but quit hiding behind the anonymous tag please

      Delete
    14. To give people options and what they'd like to have as realistic, Have a options page on game settings where a person can pick individual realism settings they want like you find on some other simulators and some already in ETS2 today

      Delete
    15. I agree with most of you here: Under Options -> Gameplay there should be possibility to pick preferred physics engine setup:
      1. Original (little arcade)
      2. Hardcore (just like second largest player group needs)
      3. Custom (ETS2 should have standalone custom_physics.sii and backup or even better: simple tweaking program with somewhat graphical interface, that allows you to play with physics settings without affecting original ones. Sim copter (game from 1994) had a nice example. Only add "Restore earlyer settings" option)

      Somebody complained, that SCS didn't reply to his/her mail in 3 days. Don't worry, it may take over a week, because there are lot of players mailing to them.

    16. the problem alot of people are missing is that the levels of "realistic" truck simulation that we and many others want has to be looked at logically and from SCS grounded point of view ..
      Our monitors simply CANNOT reproduce a realistic simulation of the driving .. I have an awesome monitor.. 1920x1080 .. 21 inchs .... here's the problem .. thats 21" .. where's the other 5-6 foot that a windshield is ?
      SCS are making the best they can with the room they have .. we have to remember the limitations of monitor or computer vs real world.. I'm sure if we all had Oculus Rift or Track IRs or a 6-8ft wall to project onto (or anything like that) SCS would make a greater game. I understand the realistic limitations of the available technology.
      Keep up the great work SCS ...
      And for the record some great ideas for the Hardcore modes.. so I do agree but ...

      Delete
    17. To this simulation driving of cargoes maybe its a good option or not to make in gameplay option button to turn that on or off. For casuals players will be standard off and if somebody want to have real trucking expirience will tur it on for itself.

      Greetings SCS from Poland you are doing a very great job. I wait for your further job on ETS2. Thank you :)

      Delete
    18. I really like the idea of hardcore, wich would enable a different psysics engine, or even have to versions in the installment. Hardcore exe and regular exe. Or even a intelligent script that advance the physics engine as you lvl and become more experienced. The idea of working bottuns within the cab sounds very good indeed. That way we could implement the valve key to switch between 2 engine sounds, muffled and open pipes. Alot of great thing could be acheived. Still i agree on the game have to be playable for all who loves Semi´s, lorry´s, Trucks, sættevogne.

    19. I'm with thebigbadonion!!!!!!

    20. Yeah, I fully support the idea of possibility to switch game to "Hardcore mode"!

    21. "The game would not have sold like it did without the accessibility to non sim players that it now has."

      That was discussed by SCS in this post and everyone apart from you in this little discussion seemed to also notice, that is why people are suggesting an OPTION of additional simulation aspects so that people wanting more simulation can play with more realistic physics etc and the rest who can't listen to dance music and think at the same time can keep playing Need For Speed with trucks.

      "While pure sim players may find it dumbed down too much and want it much harder, just remember this game being so well supported is largely due to it's being mainstream friendly.
      So think a bit before you all scream we want it harder as we like pain so very much, that not everyone playing this (in fact most people playing this) play it because it is fun and relaxing."

      Truck driving can still be fun and relaxing with realistic simulation, it's not rocket science, you would just have to drive more carefully and actually understand truck handling and basic physics so you can realize that taking a banked 90 degree corner at 100km/h is probably not a good idea. But as it is, you can just drive like it's Grand Theft Auto.

      "Sure add a hard core mode, but make it not effect the core game that is currently very enjoyable to more than just the Masochists."

      I love how you think driving a truck realistically is somehow painful and that simulation fans only want it to be realistic so that they can be 'tortured'. Like I said, truck driving isn't rocket science, but having few consequences to bad driving behavior makes for a very dull experience apart from those who just need SOMETHING to do whilst listening to music.

      "If you want it real then go do it in real life, this is a game with a nice sim feature, lets not ruin it for everyone hey."

      If you don't want it real why not play a game featuring trucks where the game is not based around driving realistically (red lights anyone?) There are a few out there.

      Oh, never-mind. You're obviously a moron. Carry on.

      Delete
    22. WOW!

      We ask for better physics whilst KEEPING options for players who like how easy (or 'accessible' as they say, lol) the game currently is, so that sim fans can be as happy as the players who are content with how the physics are at the moment.. and what do we get?

      "Oh noez, shuttupz guyz or hai! SCS will makez it 2 hard 4 uz!"

      Derp.

  3. Hello really simpas damage still no new american truck simulator I hope that all works well can not wait to run over

  4. Looking forward to the update. But I think that the game should have an easy and hard mode. On easy mode it should be harder to roll the truck for people with less experience, and on hard mode the physics should be more realistic making it easier to tip over as it would be in real life.

    1. I think this would be a great idea actually! It does need to be more realistic in some ways as it is too easy to keep the truck on the road.

      Translation.

      You said it is too easy to keep the truck on the road but I am unable to do so and you have hurt my feelings.

  5. First, thanks for the update.

    About making the game playable for people with no license: Game settings are for this purpose :)
    Keeping in mind this game engine improved a LOT since ETS and GTS, maybe you should reorganize your menus and add a new option amongst the typical "game settings, controller, graphics". It could be: Simulation options.

    Here you can put everything about fatigue, fuel, trailer realism, suspension realism, rain, braking... whatever... Even economy, allowing us to set a % bar to set if we get more reward or less (setting 100% as current values for example). and it's up to each player to make things harder, or easier.

    I would like to remind you that this is not intended to be a Need for Speed. Most games out there with the title "simulator" on their name, try to respect as much as possible reality, without being too hardcore, but respect it.

    Driving a truck is not like flying a plane, and there you have in Flight Simulator tons of options about wind damage realism, stall, flaps, etc., making FS playable or unplayable depending on your skills and/or knowledge.

    So I think that, rather than not implementing nice features to a truck simulator engine that gets better everyday, just to make it playable for some people, you should make those calculations customizable instead of hard-coded. Remember that also many of us don't like certain features or behaviours because they aren't very realistic, or see they could be considerably improved.

    Thanks!

    2. Agree, trucks are not like planes with a bazillion switches etc and complicated startup systems etc.

      People seem to think this game will be unplayable with more realistic simulation when in reality you will just have to slow down a bit and actually drive to conditions.

      The fact I don't have to even change my driving style for dry/wet surfaces really says something about the watered down nature of the simulation aspects here.

      No, it does exist, and it will most certainly b released at some point, but it seems SCS has just put it on the back burner for the moment while they work on some ETS 2 updates.

  30. while on the interior sounds, please check the turn signals on the Volvos. they are ear-splitting when playing at a decent volume, and do not seem to be fixable with an add-on. in real life, turn signals are much more quiet.

    there's also a weirdness when certain sounds (like the cash register) is played. it temporarily 'turns down' the other sounds, which then slowly return.

    thanks

  40. About sounds, I would LOVE to have the possibility to open my window and hear the actual engine sound while driving. I have asked this before, but since you are working on a big update on sounds, it would be a nice adition to the game.

    Why I ask this? Because here in Brazil we still have trucks without air conditioning, it means we drive with open windows. This allows you to listen to the exterior sound, wind, and cars nearby. I would love to have this to my favorite driving simulator!

    Thanks!

  59. Hi;

    First SCS thank you for the continues support for the game, I hope other developers would be as generous as you.
    Regarding balancing the game to be playable and simulated at the same time,
    if you remember back in the late 90's you had a truck game that would let you choose between playing as arcade or simulator, certainly the simulator was harder but it had a choice, so my humble advise to you make options in the menu that would make the game either simulator for people who want realistic driving, or arcade for people who just want to have fun with the game.

    Regards.

  60. Finally a sound update, thank you for listening after such a long time,

  65. We will be very happy if the game developer add some realistic damage mod of the truck in a collision...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think that may be a brand name licensing thing to do with the truck manufacturers. By having having real damage, it shows their brand in a way they do not want to be represented. That is why games like Grand Theft Auto do have car damage, but if you notice, all of their vehicle brands are fictional, but have a clear resemblance to vehicles in real life. Even in 18 Wheels of Steel Across America, they had vehicle damage, but they could do it because they were using names such as Pacific instead of Peterbilt, and Kinetic instead of Kenworth.

      Delete
    2. The developer would not add a mod. They would implement it in the game ...

  66. I used to really enjoy playing ETS 2 but I hardly ever play it since the massive disaster with the physics which I have been patiently waiting for a change back or some fix since 1.9.

    I could get really pissed but I just don't have it in me anymore, how many posts does it take ? Theres 25 pages on the forum with 9k views of beta testers and users wanting the physics back. We weren't complaining about the physics before you watered it down to rail road driving. Why couldn't you make the physic changes optional ?

    Point is I used to play this game now I don't because its boring as hell, you can't even tip your cement trailer going around a bend at less than 60km/h. No amount of paint jobs or scenery can change this because driving is the freaking main part of the game.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You may call the 1.9 physics update a disaster while some people may call it great. There will always be wars about everything in this game because for some reason, some people expect a REAL simulator while some people just want to play and have fun.

      Just because the title includes SIMULATOR doesn't mean the game is actually one. Its a GAME. A GAME is meant to be fun for a majority of the game's market. Many people would not like it if the game was a true, REAL simulator so quit complaining.

    2. Since 1.9 update came out i have not played ETS2 at all. Reason is really worse truck handling.

  67. Where is New(Not know to new) Mercedes MP IV?

  68. This game is meant to be a SIMULATOR. If trucks in real life sway, have load shifts and can tip over have that in the game don't remove it like you did. Not only that your enforcing it to every player who plays this game to drive like were are on rail road tracks with no option to turn it off is just beyond me.

    I would just like the 1.8 physics back along with a lot of other users as well because driving in this game is like you have no load attached to your truck. I mean the trailer doesn't even sway in the mirror at all.

I wish there could be more driving games focusing on any decade from 50's to 80's. Truck games or other, just to see those nice and original looking vehicles.

  70. "At the same time, we still need to keep in mind that the game must be playable for people without a truck driver's license and experience, so it's about finding the right balance between providing simulation fidelity and giving the player assistance during driving."

    That was about the dumbest thing I've heard regarding a game that defines itself as a simulator! What gives!? I'm all for having easier modes (which I hope that means) or something like that, but dumbing down the game as a whole, woof.. >_< Simulators are meant to be darn hard if you don't know what you're doing! But sure, newbie mode or something, fine.

  72. All said and done if your gonna make as real as possible change a few things around/the roads are to perfect(put pot holes in the road surface rough it up) AI Traffic throw a smash into the mix less on the buses cars towing trailers/mark out on maps where rail way crossing are when your on the back roads.And more big inclines on hills the list can go on but there's just some idea's.Yes the roads are different around the world.Here in oz the roads are as ruff as guts but still great to drive on.......

  73. First of all, thanks for your effort and improvements.
    "we have altered and equalized the sound volume of in-cabin engine sounds and external engine sounds for all trucks." you said. I got a question for this...
    *Volvo sounds are awesome. (+note: blinker sound is too much and unreal). In-cab engine sounds like in real also external engine sounds like in real too. All of them so close real Volvo sounds. You did well with this game engine. So enough for me (Im using prof. sound card with 5+1 and also got prof. headphone.) But other trucks sounds are not good enough, without Scania R420 sounds and Renault Premium sounds.
    *I think the key points are ext engine sounds are more mechanical +noisy and in-cab sounds are little bit mechanical, more silent +more bass levels (for exhaust sound) etc. in volvo, r420 and premium sounds. So they have good and enough sounds for this game.
    *The question is: Engine sounds will be unreal, if you equalize in-cab engine sounds and ext. engine sounds for all trucks. I hope you will not make it in this way. And I hope I misread...

HI , thank you very much this looks awesome !! but i am only talking about seat positioning feature ! we don't want new cities right now !! focus on details and more details , like for example new wipers settings slow , medium and fast ! keyboard shortcuts for Radio as someone here has mentioned ! and more stuff like that ! it will make the game awesome ! also focus on the weather different sets of weather! hopefully it will start to snow sooner :D ! but it's still great jobs guys , keep up the good work you're by far the best game developers !!

    1. Oh, again! "We don't want! We, our Majesty the First!" Or who exactly are "we?"

      I, for example, am most excited about new area to discover. New features (seat positioning) and core improvements are great, great and great, but mostly I'm lookking for new part of map.

      What's more, SCS didn't spend developing time on that new area. It's a outsourced work done by Heavy Load Studios, while SCS focused on new features and improvements.

      Yes, ideas you mentioned are great. Let's hope some day we will see them in ETS2 and other games. But please, speak for yourself next time, don't use "we". Of course it's likely someone shares exactly same opinion with you, but you don't know that - and what's more important - you have not been elected as speaker for others. :-)

  75. So I used to play world of Warcraft.. And all I would ever see on forums people bitching about how easy game is..and how they should make it hardcore and make people work 10 times harder to get shit.. but game just keeps on getting easier do you know why? Cause only 10% of people enjoy playing a fail game like omsi bus simulator (which sucks monkey balls) and 90% of people like to get rewarded for shit they do and just simply play the game. So if multy billion company like Blizzard making stuff easier this guy won't make it harder to please 10% of retards that have to prove to them self's that they are the shit by playing games that too hard and unenjoyable for 90% of players..
