Meanwhile across the ocean

The work on American Truck Simulator is not shrouded in total secrecy, and we felt it's high time that we show you a bit more of what we are working on:

    4. Ooooh, so that's why there are so many US trucks in Europe for shows and such... Because they're 'just big'.

      I really wonder why ETS fans always have to post ridiculously childish posts on anything related to ATS. It's pathetic.

    9. Yes, the ATS fans have been bitching about pics to SCS (and I agree with them), but they haven't been bashing ETS like the ETS fans do with ATS or atleast, not in such extent as the ETS fans do (you just said a great example of that by saying ''AMIRICAN GAY SIM''.)

      And don't get me wrong, I'd post a similiar comment too if ATS fans were massivly bashing ETS, but they don't (with a few exeptions perhaps).

Stop complaining about ATS, I love ETS2, But I've been waiting 10 years for a decent ATS! If I could play the 18 wheels series I would, I'm having to wait for a highly detailed ATS game that will run on my computer, I will be buying ATS the day of release, Whether it's at full sale price or if it's got a release/ets2 owners discount :)

    16. To be honest, I don't actually see why ETS fans are bashing ATS. I LOVE Euro Truck Simulator 2, the first one was pretty decent too! I trust SCS not to mess up ATS. ETS, ATS. In ETS you drive a truck around live as a european trucker. In ATS you'll be driving a truck in the US. Also, you can shut up about the US trucks always being too big, or just to show off because there ARE cab-overs! For example: The Kenworth K100.
      Btw, I'm from the UK but don't see the point of this argument about ATS being rubbish because of the big trucks and that it's in America.

      @above
      Lol.

    17. Yeah, the DAF pics will be from mods. There are no DAF's in North America. The only trucks I see over here from the ETS2 game are Volvo's, but I admit, the ones here are alot uglier than the Euro ones. Still can't wait til this game comes out. I love the fact it looks like there are some actual city areas to drive through, and the graphics look awesome.

      And yeah I don't know why everyone is bashing the North American trucks. Yeah they are different. Yeah I like looks of the Euro trucks more. But the fact is the trucks are bigger over here due to many reasons (Bigger loads (Trains) wonder if they will be added to the game?, speed limits are faster, and I am told the interior space of our ugly trucks are supposed to be alot nicer to live in (More spacious)).

Let me ask you this: when SCS will be improving the physics (still unreal by now), when they will add game features (new/old trucks, different ai traffic, better economy, another point of articulation, visible trucks damages, real police, real borders between EU and non EU countries where to stop for a while simulating the process for the transit, and many many other "real" things). I bet, on june 3rd 20023!!!

      "i have a little interest in American Truck Simulator because i'm european"

      Well surely it's not because you're European. :-D I'm European too and while I like European trucks, I LOVE those American and Australian beasts. Words can't tell how I'm looking for ATS.

      In fact I suppose SCS knows very well that ATS will be marginal business in Europe, it's clearly focused on American market. And hell, it's high time to attack overseas market properly, number of ETS2 copies sold in United States and Canada clearly tells ATS can be absolutely huge success. It is known fact that American players prefer games set in environment they know, so if ETS2 done very well there, I can't imagine ATS numbers and various possibilities how SCS can invest these numbers into future projects (surely some of them set in Europe again).

      In other words, wish ATS great success even if you don't like American trucks - because the result will be visible on everything SCS will do in future.

  18. Very nice! Wonderful! Go on SCS! Is there a release date for this game?? And will it include only USA or the whole America?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It will not cover even whole United States, at least initial release. It will cover California (I guess maybe Nevada will be also included in initial release, because second picture could be from Las Vegas - but that's only my speculation). And there is a note on Excalibur Publishing that boxed edition will also include Arizona DLC for free.

      http://www.excalibur-publishing.com/games/american-truck-simulator/

      Of course it's highly possible that SCS will expand it more and more, but if whole States or even whole North America will make it to the game, well, that's only a question of sales. But yeah, it would be fantastic to drive again not only from San Francisco to Miami, but also from Edmonton to Monterrey! :-)

    2. Boxed version from Excalibur? Does that mean there will be a retail release, not just Steam?

      You can't make them IDENTICAL to the real thing without the licenses, even if badges are removed/changed.

  33. For all of you people wondering if there will be a retail version of American Truck Simulator (ATS).

    I guess they will sale the game in a boxed version with the DVD and activation key, but you'll need Steam to play the game...

    And if not, and they do sale a retail version of the game. I won't buy it, I don't want to be treated like shit again by SCS. We see what they are doing with ETS2.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry, but you sound like a looser frankly. What they are doing with ETS2? They are improving it for two freaking years now. You have bought your original game, you played and I assume enjoyed. But instead of being thankful for load of free updates and content just like it was in 1.11 and some previous updates...you whine and bitch here.

      Get some sense people!

      Delete
    2. Exactly, show me other game which is so massively updated two years after release and both free and paid new content is still produced. I can't count how much new free stuff and various improvements we got; vanilla and up-to-date ETS2 are almost two different games.

      Remember how it was before, in 18WoS era with THQ/Valusoft? There were no add-ons and patches were rare. Oh, yes, there was a thing which could be called add-on, it extended Haulin' map and added two new trucks. But instead of releasing it as add-on to Haulin', Valusoft decided that extended Haulin' will be a new game called American Long Haul and sold almost same game twice. Those whinning kids writing their stupid, filthy and ungrateful comments on this blog should experience "glory" of those times.

      But after divorce with that publisher, things were much better: we got free UK expansion for ETS, we got free Austria expansion for GTS, there were more patches. Even in those times, SCS acted better than most of other developers/publishers.

      But what SCS do for players now? It's extraordinary, in one word. Such a support for two years old software, I repeat, show me comparable example. And it's still not over, we know about Scandinavia, we know recently there was another recording session to improve sounds even more and God knows what's in plan. SCS deserves so many thanks for that. If they decided that Steam services will be preffered, well, when you bought ETS2, no one said you'll get any update. Still you can have up-to-date game with many new features and content even without Steam (only some non-vital DLCs are Steam exclusive). Although I'm the last guy who is in love with Steam, I understand their services makes lots of things easier for developers and they can concentrate on making games and patches and new content - and not spending time with publishing infrastructure. I almost bet there would be not so many ETS2 updates and new content if there was no Steam, it keeps it alive to a considerable extent.

    2. Most people are able to prevent falling asleep at the wheel in ETS2 since the game tells you exactly when you need to sleep before you will start dozing off.

  40. Guys, just think. It has been over a year that they announced they will be doing ATS. But they said they were only doing California first. 1 year to do 1 STATE. 1 YEAR! If it takes them over a year to do ONE state, will it take them 50 years or more to finish this game?!

    Sorry, but I want to be alive still when this game comes out.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, maybe they made so much streets, towns, cities in CA that only ATS' CA is practically the same size as ETS' France. Who knows.
      I guess they actually want to make a good map this time instead of copy-pasting everything. I mean all of the screens we've seen so far look kind of nice and different.

      I'd really rather drive trough 1 nicely moddeled, very detailed street 10 times than drive trough 10 bad, generic streets 1 time.

      And besides that, they've also been working on Nevada (look at the second pic, that's in LV) and Arizona will be made after the release.

      One year really isn't that long to make a map actually, especially not for a smaller team... You also need to keep in mind that they basicly need to do the same thing as normal city planners. They need to make maps, different traffic situations, gas stations, houses, etc.

      But IDK, as far as I know, you could be right and perhaps SCS is really slow, perhaps ATS' map is also going to be a copy-paste job... I'm basing everything off of the pictures (and not only the ones posted on this blog).

      Delete
    2. yeah well bad thing about detailed cities is lag tho...look at ets2 tons of people lags in cities and its pretty generic roads etc...unless ATS takes nothing to run lol...

      Delete
    3. Surely not 50 years, California is third biggest of the States and for example 12 smallest States covers almost same area as California itself. Together with Nevada and Arizona, which are in (pre)production, we'll have something about 10% (raw guess) of the United States area. Then - who knows. SCS could delegate (or hire) even more people to work on American expansions, so it could be done faster. It all depends how successful the game will be on the market.

      Delete
    4. Since they are starting a new country they have alot of new types of buildings to create but once the major types are created they will be able to reuse them quickly in other cities. It should only be the beginning that takes longer. Unless they want to create unique looks for all the cities in which case it would take longer.

      Delete
    5. Realize that you can fit the entire ETS2 map inside of the US 2, nearly 3 times over. America is a big country.

      SCS also already stated that the initial release of the game would only contain the state of California, and parts of Nevada. Don't worry your pretty lil' head.

      Delete
    6. On the other hand, we can only guess if ATS scale will be similar to ETS2 scale.

      Delete
    7. It's not just the map, they've had to make new trucks (including sleeper/daycab variations and some tuning), trailers, traffic etc.

      Plus, a lot of the buildings are one-off landmark buildings or particular architecture styles only really seen in one area, such as the unique San-Fran houses.

      Even the truck headquarters, service centre (seen in top picture), employment agencies, hotels, company depots etc are new.

      Plus, we don't know if they've done any gameplay changes and ther innovations which will add time to the development.

      It may be taking a long time but at least you can tell looking at pictures what city you are in. I cannot say the same for ETS2, it all looked pretty generic and similar to me and they didn't feel like the big cities they were modeled on.

  41. I'd like to see in the future an australian "mod" or a full game, across the country road-trains with 3-4 trailers, narrow roads in the middle of nowhere.

    2. I can't say for sure if the US has road trains, but all they would have to do is add Canada into the mix, and they could have road trains.

      Since the game is in the summer in ETS2, if they carried the same logic over to ATS (Canada), there would still not be snow, frozen lakes, ice ect.

  45. Mercedes C class estate on american street?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. According to Wikipedia, Merc C Class is sold (and also produced) in the United States too. But if you'll find another screenshot with a car which would be absolutely weird on American streets, keep in mind it's usual to take assets from previous projects and use them provisionally in current developed project. Sounds, textures, even 3D models... and as development continues, they are replaced with current made assets. If you will go deep into history of this blog, you'll find ETS2 pics from very early development state using assets from older SCS games, if I remember correctly, even some trailers from ALH. And of course it's usual method in every studio which made more than one game.

    2. There are no Mercedes (or BMW or Audi or VW's in America)??, you don't even need to go there to know that they are very common in the States. Just watch a American movie, any movie...

    3. Notice, they specified "Mercedes C class estate".

      They did not question if there were Mercedes in general, they specified if they had that specific model.

      Can you provide any proof they are sold in the United States because just this year when asked, a spokesman for Mercedes said "We cannot confirm the C-Class Wagon for the US market at this time," (see website below)

  47. Wow, these photos look so real! I'm impressed by the quality of the graphics, compared to ETS2. I'm definitely looking forward to this game.

  48. Release date would be nice. Although why dont you have a kickstarter with early access perks, so that you can hire people to get this project done faster. Something to consider.

  49. I really like the Volvo VN. As a Swede it would be really fun to drive a Swedish truck in the US =)

  50. Hopefully the highway system will not be flawed like In ETS2. It is so annoying when the rightmost lane exits constantly ( you are forced to the middle lane (which is a bad position because traffic is on BOTH sides of you undertaking and overtaking. I live in America and very rarely does the rightmost lane exit on the interstate highway system (in America we call it a highway) same thing as a motorway only bigger. (Everything bigger In America LOL!!!) cars, roads, etc.

  51. "(Please note that ANYTHING appearing in the images are only illustrative and are not guaranteed to find their way into future SCS Software projects EVER.)"

    That should be the disclaimer, because you showed pictures of double trailers in ETS2 before release and years later we still don't have them!

  53. What about adding something into the game, that u can drive carnival rides etc, to sites. Just like a drop load like everything else, but make it more populated like a regular carnival would be. i think it would be fun attraction to deal with also. Look forward to this game coming out soon.

  54. Beautiful, you have given America some personality and soul. You made Europe in ETS2 feel so cold and heartless, I do not like driving there. It's not a place I want to escape to, but ATS is looking like it will be somewhere I will enjoy being and exploring =]

    Thankyou for updating your fans with new pictures.

    1. It depends where exactly in ETS2, I agree that original map often gives soulless feel, but then something happened and Going East, especially Slovakia and part of Poland, are made with big heart and describing reality as good as it was possible - I feel like I'm almost there. And man, those pics from Scandinavia expansion displays even more passion during creation process. But definetely, ATS map will be their best creation ever, no doubt about it. You don't need a hint and you recognize LA or SF on first sight - in most ETS2 cities (I mean original, not Going East), you must look for unique buildings to recognize where you are without a map and still, there's no magic, you can tell you're in generic city. Can't wait to visit all those beautiful places in ATS.

  55. I'm hoping you at least got a license from Kenworth since you have made 2 trucks from them now, in which case it's likely you got approval from Peterbilt also (both owned by PACCAR), so hopefully the disclaimer is just relating to the new Volvo shown.

  59. Judging by your choice to show cartoonish skins on every truck, this game's target demographic is going to be 12 year olds again and the truck physics are therefore going to be the same as ETS2 or easier.

  60. I am an American and proud of it, however, I love ETS2. great game great trucks. Just like I love playing TS2014. I love the trains from Europe and Germany as well as the good old USA. Plenty of content for everyone. Nuff said

  63. Glad to see another update about ATS. The pics look great. However..... If I may suggest.... we have some great pics of the trucks and scenery now.. what we need is some info about the game's playable features..........

    ....... Will we be able to purchase trailers? Will there be multiple pickup/dropoff points? How about a pic of the current map so we can see maybe the size of California, or the size of one of the cities? Etc, etc.....

    Again.... more pics of the trucks, and some scenic views are great. But having some info about other ideas would be nice as well. Not just more pics of trucks. Especially when you mention that the trucks in the pics... we may not even be getting anyway due to license issues.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well OMFG..... is that a "hill" in the last pic? I'll play ATS just for that freakin hill lol.. That is one of my complaints about ETS2..... it's too flat. More hills please.

Perhaps you could try to keep on topic in future posts [you can start with your reply to this ....I'm sure, you'll nail the 'keep on topic' feedback quite immediately. Also, give the word 'context' some consideration. Finally, how about including somewhere in your posts, adding a note saying simply ...'Thanks SCS' .....given you've gone ot the effort to add a post in the first place.

      FFS .. a question about a DAF XF model in a ATS notification ...... Really?

    2. I agree..... a question about ETS2 on the ATS message board is definately out of place. It makes him look..... lost.

      I wonder how often he goes to McDonalds asking about a "whopper" (which is sold by Burger King)?

      But then again.... "common sense" is available to everyone ... lol... it's a rare comodity lol.

    3. It doesn't matter if it's post about ATS, ETS or christmas! There are no rules that says I have to write only about ATS in ATS post! It's SCS blog in general and I have right to write everything I want and at the moment I want to know about DAF XF, so stfu and mind your own business. I will say thanks if they will share a valuable info for me.

    4. Thats your arguement???????? Its an SCS product as well so what's the difference?????? Really?????

      How about this then..... why don't you take that arguement a step further and simply say that this is the internet..... and all internet topics are thereby related. Start posting your questions about Facebook and Twitter. Add your questions about Google.

      Maybe its us who is posting on the wrong blog.... maybe SCS is european..... and i'm from Canada. Maybe i'm in the wrong country to be posting on this blog.

      Are you kidding me??????

      Show some common sense you moron. This blog is clearly about ATS. NOT ETS2. I know you obviously think sending your payment cheque to the marketing department instead of the accounts department is ok because it's the same company building..... but... it's a inconvenience to people who have to deal with your lack of consideration.

    6. So if can't beat them... join them .... lol? They're inconsiderate so..... you may as well be too? C'mon man.... lets be real.

      I agree that its really not that big of deal... other than it opens the door for people to use your off topic post as an excuse to attack you. And I admit to being one of those people as I questioned the relevance of your DAF question with ATS trucks. Will there be an ATS Daf truck? Maybe yes but..... probably not.

      I'll also admit that i'm a moron as well... being that I screw up my posts from time to time too.... and yep... I too get attacked just as you just did.... lol.

      I'm no better than you.. I make the same mistakes. But... the difference is... I understand and agree with their complaint.

    7. Are you stupid or what? Look at the top banner, it says "SCS Software blog" not "ATS blog". That means it's about SCS products. Discussion with you is waste of time. I will make it simple for you to understand. New post = new comments = new place to write about DAF XF! I will write about DAF XF under every post. Deal with it :)

    8. The title: "SCS Software Blog" is the name of the page.... referring to SCS software.... I agree.... however....

      The following refers to the particular game topic within their company blog page:

      Meanwhile across the ocean

      The work on American Truck Simulator is not shrouded in total secrecy, and we felt it's high time that we show you a bit more of what we are working on:

      Also...... to get to this page from the home page of Steam..... you need to click on the link titled ..... "American Truck Simulator".... not SCS Software Blog.

      But apparently... conversing with you is also a waste of time..... so fine... live your life and be happy.

  70. Thanks SCS the update was timely and apart from the ETS2 posts it is nice to see a positive replies to your update. I do not have patience with the never-ending .. where is the DAF etc. ... I just hope there are enough of us mature readers who let you know we appreciate your continued support of the titles your develop.

    Clearly you have demands on your time. ETS2 updates are a long list no doubt and I hope you are taking these feedbacks and getting them into ATS up front.

    The update looks amazing ..... and based on previous ETS2, ATS will be a first day purchase with no concerns or worries.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Please model the non-synchronized transmissions used in these American trucks in-game so that we have to rev-match when shifting gears. It will not only stop the game being too easy and boring for those who can already drive non-synchronized transmissions but it will also allow players to learn this technique and I think a good truck simulator should be able to teach people how to drive a truck.

    Then you can also sell your game to those in the driver training industry.

    You could also make it an option, like you currently have for "real automatic", so that those who want the feature can use it and those that can't can select an easier option (like how the H-shifter works in ETS2, shift into gear at any rpm ).

    I wasnt the map to be really big ;) so i'm waiting :)
    The first topic for this game was last year in september , one year to make this game to work flawless i frankly don't think so ...
    In The summer of 2015 maybe June is pretty decent to come out

    1. Exactly.... September 6 was the first ATS topic is the forum list. So not quite a year yet. IMO I don't think that's enough time to create ATS.

      I'll be looking for the game release date to be more fairly around September 2015. That'll give the game a 2 year creation period. I'm thinking that should be enough time to get the game together and out to us waiting fans.

  77. Thanks for the update, it looks really good.

    Anyway I would like to mention something I consider important. Semitrailers in the USA are commonly 53', aproximately a couple meters more longer than here on Europe. It would be good if you focused on those long semis, instead of the ones like the screenshot. The classic 53' wabash reefer... huge 53' tankers...

    And just as a note, in the case you want to make the simulation better on the future: they also have tandem axles on the semi, which allows the backwheels to be moved forward or backward, when reversing, to change the pivot point.

    1. That's a good question.... so far though there's no official answer. I reason that the price of the ATS base game will be about the same as the ETS2 base game.

      According to the SCS Offical Website the price of the ETS2 base game is: €19.95 / $26.95 to buy.

    2. Amazon.co.uk have the game on preorder priced at £14.99 (which they can't increase if you preordered it at that price. So I'm guessing it will be around there.

  88. ETS2 and ATS should have an " instant replay " function from the last 3 or 5 minutes of gameplay. This way we could see our manouvers and all environement from diferent cameras.

    Please add this feature, i think everybody will like this!
