Humble Weekly Bundle: Simulators 2

We have accepted an invitation to make Euro Truck Simulator 2 a part of Humble Weekly Bundle: Simulators 2. If you don't know what Humble Bundle does yet, they are worth checking out and maybe even bookmarking - you can get good games on the cheap, and at the same time do your bit to make the world a better place by supporting charity.

Somewhat related, our regular audits reveal that there are still hundreds of thousands of people playing the game, to put it gently, with no valid activation code. This discounted bundle may be a chance for them to finally buy a genuine copy of the game and support SCS Software in our work towards the ultimate truck simulator. To improve the proposition, we have even spiced up this bundle release with a time-limited exclusive: an all-new truck paint job DLC, with a theme quite attractive to old-school gamers. We'll make it available for purchase after the event, but for a few days the Fantasy Paint Jobs Pack DLC can only be had in the Humble Weekly bundle.


The comments below this blog post will of course be mostly about the status of the upcoming ETS2 update and overall progress...

So here is a short status report before the weekend:

The open beta for ETS2 update 1.11 has brought in a lot of feedback. We have a huge changelog of bug fixes and improvements since the open beta was launched, probably more than we anticipated, but it only proves that spending some time with the community at large providing feedback is very useful before actually going public with a game update. ETA for release? Possibly early next week, unless a new major bug is spotted. In that case, we'll test your patience again - but surely you'd prefer to get game updates with as few bugs as possible.

The new DAF Euro 6 truck is now very close to finish line at last. It had better - over a half man-year has been invested into it so far! We hope to release it as the main star of one of upcoming game updates at some point this summer. Meanwhile, the teams are working on two more truck models for ETS2, and two more for ATS!

The Euro Truck map design team working on a new ETS2 expansion - DLC Scandinavia - is working very hard even now in the middle of the hot summer. There is extensive work being done on the back-end of World of Trucks. Yet another bus model is under construction in one corner of the office, while a new trailer set is under construction on the opposite side of the office. New game features are trialled for future 1.12 ETS2 update already in closed testing... you see, we keep ourselves busy!

    2. renaulthater ??

      Ah, ok you drive Scania.

      Because, Scania Driver hates all other truck brands:

      Volvo ugly, Mercedes ugly, MAN ugly, Iveco ugly, DAF ugly, Kamaz ugly, BMC ugly, Sonacome ugly, Freightliner ugly, Peterbilt ugly

      but Scania... the best the best. All other truck brands detroy...

      Delete
    3. The only trucks which I hate in the game are Renaults and Ivecos. I like the rest but mostly I drive Scania or Volvo. I have done quick jobs will all trucks in the game. MAN like them but my only con is the blinker sound,its super slow but I can use an MAN sound mod which would be better.

      Delete
    4. Why do you hate Iveco ?? Italian trucks are not good ??

      Iveco is not a bad truck.

      Iveco EuroCargo is Truck of the Year 1992.
      Iveco EuroTech is Truck of the Year 1993.
      Iveco Stralis is Truck of the Year 2003.
      Iveco Hi-Way is Truck of the Year 2013.

      And the problem is, a lot of people have not drive a Iveco. And they say Iveco not good... What is this ??
      Better is drive this truck and form opinion...

      Ok??

  6. I must retype my message:

    First, great work that you do here!
    But i have 2 suggestions for you.
    First, it where awesome for us when you do every or every second day an post on Facebook or the blog with informations about the work from the day.
    So it is not so hard for community to wait for the awesome work that you do.

    Second, on the modder site it where awesome when you could release a legit changelog, so that the modders can see what they have to change on their mod for perfect compatibility to all new versions of the game.

    So thx for all that and keep up the good work!

    Greetings from Germany :)

    1. I remember a dev interview with DaSquirrelsNuts back when ETS2 was released on steam and they said that they where working on a coach bus simulator using the same map as ETS2 (look at the bus stops) but it would take 3 or 4 years before it will be released because they want to have a finished game, unlike American Truck Simulator wich won't be finished when released (just California). A couple of months ago they posted a picture or a video of them recording the sounds of a bus.

  37. DLC Scandinavia means that you should activate a second point of articulation (then modders can do the rest of the work) considering that most of the real trucks in the North are gigaliner and/or truck and dog trailer!!! So I hope you guys will be including that in the game!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, devs from small indy games say that it's really easy for them to add a second pivot point. So for a company like SCS it should be a big problem at all... Maybe it's just not possible in ETS, but I doubt that to be honest.

      And it's not like they have to make new trailers and such, because the modding community would love to make doubles I guess.

      I sorta get the feeling they wont do it because they don't want to scare off kids/casual players.

      Even some of the old 18 WoS games had double trailers...
      And 18 WoS did NOT have the automatic park thing, so it was really tricky to park those doubles with a huge American KW W900, haha!
      I loved tryin to park those doubles in 18 WoS though, after a few deliveries I actually got pretty good at it.

      Oh well, I guess it won't happen, since the community have asked it so many times, but we never got a real answer from SCS.
      Maybe some day...

    3. SCS and its games such as 18 WoS series, ETS, GTS, UKTS and the latest ETS2 are quite famous in China, but all of these games are not officially released (e.g. with local publisher) here. So many (or nearly all) of the SCS fans in China (including me =.=) know the exist of this company and its games by pirated copies at first. But from the game Trucks & Trailers, for which SCS put Chinese language version into account, and put the translation project on the online localisation site so that people in China can also participate in the develop of the game, we realized that SCS is a company that really wants to make popular and good games. When ETS2 was released, its great performance and "revolutionary" improvements compared to the former ETS deeply impressed the Chinese game players (not only those SCS game-lovers), and the game also supports Chinese! Besides, the developers have been making every effort to fix and update the game from the release date till today. So in China, people would call the company like SCS "业界良心", i.e. "company with conscience". It's actually a "joke", but really means something. So more and more people in China have bought the game, either in retail version or in steam version. Basically the games not officially released in China usually cost quite a lot of money ( the original price of ETS2 + Going East DLC is about 210 RMB , and many people in China earn only 2000 or 3000 RMB monthly, so I bought the game on steam during Christmas sale), but more and more people here still want to support SCS, because they know that SCS won't let them down.

      I hope that the words above can answer Jack Wall's question and let SCS know its fans (at least ETS2 fans) in China :) (and sorry for my poor English)

      Delete
  43. To all the free-loaders (who may read this forum) just buy the game and support this developer. You are not cool or impressive. Do the right thing!

    SCS, thanks for the update and the progress on the various fronts. 1.11 Beta has been excellent and the regular mini revision released always good to see. The european summer is steaming along (literally here today) so my impatience will need to be controlled again !!!!!!!

    Finally, do not feel you pressured to release anything until you are happy. Quality trumps quantity along many folks post comments that suggests they may not understand that.

    Any chance you can put in an option to stop automatic windows popping up when I arrive at a destination? I gotta ask !

    also a wish: please refine a bit the textures and polygons on old trucks (for me the wheel and the mirrors looks bad on almost all models, also the buttons), redesign some minor parts (there are at least one truck without 3D pedals, and other without cable connections to the trailer - they are just painted)

  58. As Adam Jones from the band Tool said about the release time of the new album they are working on: ''It's not good when it's done, it's done when it's good''.

    Take the time that you need, SCS, I don't mind waiting for new content because it's consistently great, and I feel that you guys live up to that quote, releasing something only when you are happy with it, and it shows.

    Keep up the good work SCS!

  62. "This discounted bundle may be a chance for them to finally buy a genuine copy of the game and support SCS Software in our work towards the ultimate truck simulator."

    Perhaps if they saw you were already starting to work towards making it "the ultimate truck simulator" they would, but since you've actually made physics easier over time (1.9x changes) they may not believe your words, that any amount of money will ever see you try and make "the ultimate truck simulator", but rather just "the ultimate truck game".

    P.S. Before any of the ill-educated come to chime in with "it'll never be a simulator, that's impossible to simulate everything from real life". It does not have to do the impossible, but rather a simulator aims to simulate (as accurately as possible) the fundamental aspects of that simulator genre. I would argue that vehicle physics is an intrinsic part of any driving simulator. Making them easier is therefore a step in the opposite direction of "work towards the ultimate truck simulator".

Rather, you should have gotten an email from Humble Bundle with a link to your bundle redemption page, where you can log in to your Steam account and click a button to add the game to your Steam library. Alternately, if you have a Humble Bundle account and were logged in to it when you purchased the bundle, it should show up at the bottom of your Humble library under 'Bundle Purchases'.

  72. Hello and thank you for all the extra stuff you add to the game. I have bought a few of the extra paint dlcs but would it be possible to maybe make some dlcs that arent paintjobs?

    Maybe some more lightbars/lights? Or some neat interior things, I know this would probably be a bit more difficult, but surely lots of people would like these things without having to resort to finding mods for them!

  73. Great Paint Jobs!

    I don´t like land borders so I bought the last Paint Jobs with the flags only to support SCS. More of paintings like this! :)

    And you don´t have to write that there is a lot of work to do just because here are some kidds who write anonymus shit and can´t wait.
    The most of us are standing behind you and we can wait! :)
    Make it slow and good and for the money just bring out a few optical things like the paint jobs and we are helping out. ;)

    I would wish that I can write with my WoT Account here. Than you could deactivate anonymus. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  79. You should keep doing game updates for free but you should release things like new trucks as separate DLC that people pay for. It doesn't have to be much, but with the amount of people that will pay for them, you will be able to make some money rather than relying on just paint job and map DLC.

    Your player base is continually growing so you need to be able to grow your development team as well. At the moment, I think you have too many projects at once for such a small team.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Totally agree. This happens at my company, where we are just 4 guys at development, and the boss keeps throwing in more and more projects.

      Free game updates should be focused on enhancing the 3D engine, some game features like types of deliveries, more simulation on interiors, camera configurations, update interior/exteriors of existing trucks with better model if needed, big-long-Etc.., and the rest (trailers, tuning items, trucks, etc.) should just be buyable DLCs. You could end up having a game that includes DLCs for many countries around the world, many truck models both new or old, lots of trailer models...

      That's how a simulator survives nowadays and also almost becomes a gold mine, specially on Steam, instead of releasing a new game every 2-3 years, being a start-over both for the team and for the players. Just take a look at Train Simulator 2014 on Steam and it's long list of DLCs (trains, routes....)

      Delete
    2. I also have to agree partial. Let us pay a small amount of money for new big updates like the new truck that's coming soon. Just something between 1 - 5€.
      Many people like the game but also like alot of the energy you keep putting into it. And if you dont need the extra money. Use it to get better security for the game keys.

      But please do not look at the train simulator like Katixa said :p.
      That would scare lots of people away. With DLC over 2000€ on release. Thats just to much.

      But I will say it again. Small amounts wont do no harm. Make it like the paintjob packs. There pretty cheap. I actually only use 1 paintjob of all the packs you already released. But I did buy them all. Just to support you. Like I will deffinitly buy the new fantasy pack when its released on steam.

      Keep up the good work SCS. You keep us entertained for years to come :)

      Delete
    3. @Chris Van Assche: You don't have to look at the 2000€ DLC negatively. It's obviously the result of releasing more and more DLCs over the years.

      The game as-is comes with several tracks and trains. The good thing to know is that you can browse lots of train types (steam, electric, american...) and buy what you like. Obviously you will never buy them all unless you've got lots of money, but you wouldn't have all those for free either.

      Having a big collection available is only positive. Everyone willing to pay would buy a new truck, map, or trailer from time to time... 2-3 times per year almost for sure... that's around 10-40€ per year for one person, assuming he buys only 2-3 add-ons. When I used to play Train Sim (and I'm not rich) I didn't have problem paying 20-40€ only on christmas discouts, on several trains. And months later buy something else I want.

      That's how this works... instead of getting money from a game release every 2-3 years (and then from new customers), you keep getting it from DLCs of new, and existing customers. Even if the DLC list is 3000€ worth, you will just buy what you can, or want.

      Delete
    4. That's true, have alot of train simulator. But found it bit to expensive myself. Thats why I said it :)

  80. Hey SCS!

    You should create custom skins like the demo-colors for each truck so it looks like we're test-driving the vehicle before we add it to our fleet, as you see in real life. (but we actually bought it already, so no internal changes, only skin)

    There are skins available on the internet for dl but they don't work anymore with the new (beta) patch so it would be awesome if you guys can create such a pack! And you can use it to show the brands their own vehicles in those custom colors too :)

They made MB Trust Edition without cab exterior; they made RPremium Racing without cab interior; they made beautiful new Volvo FH-FH16 without correct front lights (FH has chrome, FH16 has black u know?); they made all of licanced trucks, not em %100 correct... too many things wrong or missing at all trucks interior or exterior... but they made beautiful trees, grass etc. like in real also... So, how can we want all of that realistic things?

    1. The truck manufacturers don't like having their trucks damaged or destroyed as it would affect their "image" as a truck manufacturer in negative way and would most likely prevent SCS from keeping or adding their trucks in the game, also if they did allow visual damage it would cost more money for the licensing which would be better spent on other features or even more trucks.

  90. You know guys, ok, you work on everything, but you more and more diverge with real life on roads !

    I will give you just 3 points :

    1. not realistic exit from companies near Highways (direct on highway - this is not USA map ...lol ...look new roads in new update)
    2. speed all over the map on highways are for trucks 80 km/h in game ... is this right, realistic ?? No. In a lot of countries is 90 km/h !!!
    3. GPS dont work like it must...that is for sure...I go cross the 70 km/h on sign and on GPS I have 50 km/h in city....and you put in city signs for 70 km/h ...

    I know that you have full hands of work, but if you think that this game must be close to real life, than you must do this way too ;)

    What about Virtual Memory ?? After 30 minutes is everything in RED....and when we will see version for Win 64 bit ????

    2. By default, the route advisor shows the current truck speed limit, while the signs show the car speed limit. There's an option under Gameplay to show the car speed limit on the route advisor, though.

      Delete
    3. Executor ...I know this ...but if sign change the rule then it must GPS too ...no matter if is this in city circle ;) .... because I put on roads which goes in city for example 70 km/h and you can drive there this speed...but GPS all the time read 50 km/h for trucks ...and this is not compatible with signs rule - on which way will this game work in future

  91. SCS guys , it will be nice if you can allow the trucker to sleep in his cabin sleep , sometimes i don't find truck stop immediately or some kms after the driving time is over ,so sleeping in the cabin with our truck parked on the side of road will make us avoid the fine , until driving to rest area.

  92. SCS you should abandon all the work for ETS2 and focus all your resources at one project = ATS. Why? Beacuse you have too many unfinished subjects! Everything is taking for ages and your fans are impatient. You won't sell more copies of ETS2 when the game is now almost for free in bundles. Release ATS faster (hope Q4 this year) and you will earn more money than all the DLC and paint jobs. Now when people know your games, they will buy everything from you. Open your eyes, we need to move forward in trucking games.
