Upcoming ETS2 Update Sneak Peek

Currently we are hard at work testing and finalizing data and code for the next Euro Truck Simulator 2 update. There is a lot of stuff coming into it, some notable features visible on the surface, also many changes under the hood, including several months of tweaks of car AI code. We are working in "when it's done" mode - we don't have a specific release date for it to announce. If testing confirms that we are in good shape, we would like to have the update out before the Summer really kicks in, but don't take it for granted.

We have already shown you the work-in-progress Seat Adjustment feature earlier. It has since been further improved to get a little extra flexibility with more camera controls.


Thanks to contribution from our friends at Heavy Load Studios in Poland, we are adding 3 new cities: Venice, Graz, and Klagenfurt to the ETS2 world. This extension of the map will be a free part of the update for all players. The new roads comprise a lot of kilometers to explore.


Here are some countryside shots from this map expansion as a little teaser:

    5. Maybe the DAF Euro 6 is in the upcoming update. As for the other trucks they will be releaeed either in September or October because it takes them 6 months to make a truck.

    4. Well,John Hauhgey, this problem comes with the 1.9 update. Maybe you don't have this problem, but I do. I'm playing this game since the release too, but still have this problem. I've searched google and there are many other people that have the same problem. If you think you can fix it, then tell me how you would check my system?

    1. It is only an update for the game and in my opinion a really friendly gift of SCS and Heavy Load Studios, that they give us a small world expansion. The scandinavian DLC is actually in development and I think that contains more cities ;)

      Delete
    2. Oh, MsHeavyAlex, that was almost rude. No, that was rude. Sorry, but it was. That new piece of gaming world is free gift, exactly as Race-Sim-Net wrote. A free gift, together with many other game improvements. I didn't expected even small map expansion will be given us for free.

      Bug patches and core improvements, yes. Fair developer releases stuff like that for free. But new content? How many developers do that? Developing games is a business for SCS, not a hobby you can do after your work. They must eat and pay taxes and they have their families, they live from creating games. And still, they are so fair and friendly developer that they gives us some nice surprises time to time for free.

      Come on, think before you write something next time.

    2. well steam is free and you can use your product key on stem to claim ets2 there too. so sod off if you don't install steam it is your problem.

      Delete
    3. Why SCS didn't released their paintjobs for all users they said already in a ealier article. With steam it is easier for SCS to manage all content and to update it. They also have no problems for creating product keys and lastly players can't lost their product keys anymore, because the DLCs are linked to steam.

      Gerne nochmal auf deutsch:
      Warum SCS die Paintjobs als Beispiel nicht für alle User veröffentlicht, haben sie bereits einmal sehr ausführlich geschrieben. Mit Steam ist es für SCS einfach um einiges leichter, alles zu managen. In dem Fall ist Steam für die Vergabe von Produktkeys zuständig und nicht SCS und außerdem können Spieler keine Produktkeys von den kleinen Paintjob-Paketen mehr verlieren, da diese direkt mit Steam verbunden sind. Zuletzt lässt sich alles per Steam viel leichter und auch schneller auf den neuesten Stand bringen.

      Hierbei beziehe ich mich voll und ganz auf den Blogartikel von vor einigen Wochen ^^

  40. Hats off the SCS.
    First off they make the game,
    Second they have you guys breathing down there necks every 5 mins, wanting this and that.
    Third they are still working on the game and developing it, even recognizing the work that the good modders have done.

    Give them some more time and it should all come good, I would rather they work and bring all the trucks in together as now they have the licences for the new brands, they have to be right whilst working on another new game in ATS. Patents guys they will get there

Villach is transit crossroad to Salzburg, Graz, Udine (IT), Ljubljana (SLO), and next, I would like to add highway A10 Salzburg - Villach + Tauren Tunnel . Add maybe add city Udine and Trieste. This would be ideal. I hope that between Klangefurt and Venezia is a lot of tunnels. THX

  58. I started playing this game last weekend (bought it a long time ago, but never had the time to play) and think it's already a great game as it is now.
    Three things I noticed so far:

    - Game has microstutters every X time, no big drama, but still annoying
    - The highways are hardly populated by AI drivers, while more traffic and even traffic jams would add to the driving experience
    - Rain is very well simulated, dripping down the windows etc, but it would be great to have other situations (snow, hail,) as well. Also added wind would add to the driving experience

  64. Good job but please, what about Ireland?? Are we not in the EU?? Bit of disgrace don't you think??

    ReplyDelete
  65. What's the point in new trucks? What if there was only one type of truck and everyone had to drive it?

    If it's a simulator and not an arcade game, there are more important points to be improved.

    - Instant replay much needed to see what went wrong after a crash.
    - Different types of failures such as flats should occur (depending to the maintenance level of the truck).
    - The player should be able to deal with some problems (flats, overheating etc).
    - Parking the trailer is too simple. Difficult parking places should be created (TSM has some).
    - Attaching/detaching the trailer should be made more realistic. It's not that easy in real life.
    - Transport prices are ridiculously high. No truck driver earns millions of Euros every month.
    - Realistic jobs please. Hauling 20 tonnes of gravel accross Europe doesn't make sense.
    - Physics still needs some tweaking. You can enter curves at any speed and the truck never tilts over.

    Don't waste time on new trucks or better grass, please..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ok, adding to realistic jobs, I needed to bring acid to euro goodies... :D Seems they don't like their workers...

      But about one truck... Are you mad? Everyone has his own preference, and it makes the game really a lot more realistic, if I can choose what truck I drive. And you can roll your truck, sure! Attaching/detaching is made big, for players who aren't as good in driving as you (probably). SCS could add an 'expert mode' or 'hardcore mode', where the prices are lower, detaching/attaching is more difficult, and where you need to back up your trailer.
      But this game is for young people as well.

      So I think it would be perfect, if you could chose between 'expert' and 'beginner' mode.

      Delete
    2. Well I have other preferences than different trucks as you may have noticed. Regarding expert mode, this could be made depending your level. Things may get harder while you gain experience.

      Ok, just one truck was a bit too far but as I said, it's my preference.

      And no, I'm not an expert driver and will never be one, as long as the game is so easy..

      Delete
    3. That's true, but there are so many people who wants new trucks, more trucks, and different trucks. I actually like your idea of making it more difficult, but I think there should be a button as well, for the really young people.

    1. Let's stay serious here. I'm not so sure they are talking about summer 2014. There's no way they will be able to release anything this summer. Maybe another paintjob DLC but nothing bigger than that. Remember that the last big patch took them 6-8 months to release after they announced it here on the blog.

    2. I'm not agree with Anonymous above. I think "before summer really kicks in" means by the summer soltice, i.e. the next weekend.

    You are one of the fairest and most honest developers on the market.

  77. it could also be cool with tandem trucks with moveable Dolly, because it is them you get more experience couse it is harder, and it could also be cool if we also gonna unload and load our trucks with goodies so we not all the time have to swift trailer, and a good thing then we are gonna park our trailer could it be so cool if we could get out of the truck to detach all the ployments and lower the supporter, and lift and lower the axle could also be very nice I hope you will think about my idea SCS :-)

On the way to e-Acres there's a turn marked as detour which leads to a terrible road and a half broken bridge, just like in "Dangerous Drives". This trail is not shown on the map. That was real fun.

    2. I had to cross the bridge under heavy rain and fog. And yes, the trail included a flooded patch. My truck got stuck in the middle of the trail. It was not easy to get it going again.

  84. Oh yes indeed!!! If some of the challenging roads in STDS were introduced to ETS2's map, that'd be real fun!!!

  85. First: you should include all the countries of EU on your map - ther is no sense
    to adrress the game Euro Truck Simulator if there is half of the countries missing!
    Second: according to all cash inflows(players,truck companies,sponsor contracts) you shoud develop and improve the game much,much faster!
    Third: you should consider to put the players community wishes and ideas
    on the first place. Sooner or later you may face unexpected drop in community
    support - and then what?
    With best wishes and regards

    1. In reply

      First - I can only agree and with patience, I expect we'll have it sooner or later. There are some talented mod teams working on map developing along with the SCS in-house development.

      Second - SCS has opened it's doors via interviews [check out DaSquirrelsNuts] and explained that they are not a big mega developer and as much as they would like to churn it out, they are resource constrained. They also have quality standards that they are committed to meet. This means a slower and steadier roll-out of development, rather than a more immediate one. In point of fact, the updates have been constant and regular, the game is improving and frankly, they show more community attention than any of the big developers of the traditional FPS genre in terms of post initial release support.

      which leads me onto

      Third - I cannot agree with your suggestion. SCS are unable to, for reasons referred to above, address all the communities wishes immediately, but to suggest they are not putting the community first is simply incorrect in my opinion. Each of the updates and DLCs, both free and paid have directly addressed a community wish. And they don't seem anywhere near finished with this strategy and have stated their intention to continue.

      With the way SCS are acting with the community, I predict continued growth [slow and steady perhaps] within ETS2 and of course, step jumps with the release of their future titles ... ATS being the one on everyone's wish list.

    2. For a moment I thought that you are an official representative of SCS for public. Anyway very nice and reasonable comment, I must say that.But who says that we have to agree on everything? ;) It would be boring!

  86. SCS I'm having problems with patch 1.10.1.9s is the steering wheel same time's stops turning

  87. I've had a similar problem after going to 1.9. I have traded my truck (Scania) to another one (MAN) and the problem went away. YMMV.

  88. It just keeps getting better and better. Another example of the continued support for ETS2 with SCS making good on their promise and have the strength of mind to deliver it on their own time frame. Bravo and thanks. All this does is encourage me to buy each of the DLCs and addon paint jobs that come available.

    Also fantastic to see the community work getting recognized by the developer. SCS always got it when it came to the mod community and the great skill and talent that exists there .... leading the way.

    Still loving SCS ETS2 and it has a long future for me.

  89. Why didnt they finish Austria in German Truck Simulator and at the beginning of ETS2? Im happy that they're doing it now but it should've been done a while ago...

  90. Bullshit. Stop making fools of yourselves and start doing something more worthy, for example, removing turks (kebabs) and lauching the one and only real truck simulator - American Truck Simulator!
    P.S. And I'm not even trolling as you, dorks, might think.

  92. SCS could add functionality for the fog lights in trucks. It would be much nicer if those foglights under Scania/Volvo/Iveco/MAN/etc. light up, or even if we could ride with only them lighten.

  94. You guys should really consider making a multiplayer setting for those who purchased the ETS2 game from the official website www.eurotrucksimulator2.com PLEASE

  95. Looking great, SCS! Keep up the good work and take your time! I can wait (somewhat) patiently :D I do have a question that hopefully you can answer. Though I'm not a Steam fan, I did have to install it for ESV: Skyrim. What I'd like to know is: when you release ATS (which will no doubt be steam), are you offering it as only a digital download or will there be a disc (like Skyrim)? I'd be more willing to buy the game if I at least had a disc...

    1. Amazon are taking pre orders for a DVD version of ATS. It says so on their advertising. To be released on August 22nd (hope that date sticks). Comes with a key for the later Arizona addition to the map.

      All the best.

    2. Another bit of information for you... this question was asked on amazon. You might be very interested in the reply as the DVD version seems to be coming out before steam get it!!

  97. Hi SCS,

    Love ETS2 and everything about it. Awesome game and I've preordered ATS cause I trust you to give us another trucking game that will take the genre to the next level. I'm a guy in his 60's and have been gaming since amigas were the latest thing!! Just a few comments from reading others comments... First comment is about steam. I'm not keen on using it as I always buy the disc, and yes I know I can use my disc ID to get to play free on steam, but simply don't want to. So how about when you sell the next disc addition like you did with 'going east' (which I bought) how about adding the full set of gorgeous metallic paint options us no steam users can't get, and let us buy them on the disc. Just a suggestion, and I'll probably get slated now for saying it, or corrected for being naïve.

    The only other comment I would make has already been stated by many of the posts on here..... 'snow'. Wouldn't it be possible to add a snowy environment to the Scandinavian maps as they see very unnatural and southern European without that. Maybe a probability sliding scale like in the setting for rain in the game options menu. You never seem to reply to any comments asking for snow scenes, so it would be great if you could reply to this post, even just to say 'no' it's too difficult, or 'no' it would take up too much time and resources. Then at least the snow posts will stop and we can drop the subject. I think snow in Scandinavia would be the icing (pun intended) on the cake.

    Best wishes to all whatever you choose to do, and I'll always be a fan of ETS2. Especially from a guy who used to say......... "Truck simulators, no way!!"
