Hard at work on ETS2 1.14 now

We have quite a task ahead of us now to finalize the testing of update 1.14 for Euro Truck Simulator 2. The big star of the update will of course be the new Euro 6 DAF XF truck tractor!

We may have been a bit over-optimistic in our estimates for 1.14 release date in our earlier blog posts, but finally we are entering the wider testing stage. We will only release the update when we deem it solid enough, but the wait should be worth it - some pretty neat things are coming. A hint of one of the new features is in the screenshot below:


We have some new help too - a new member of SCS Software's team. Our company has been growing slowly but steadily over the past year (and experiencing some growing pains in the process we must admit), and we are very happy with all the new guys and girls coming on board. Usually we don't publicize new hires, but in this case it may be interesting to make an exception. Some of you may recognize the nickname of 50keda from ETS2 moding community. We are proud to welcome 50keda to our company now as a full-time employee!

    1. A double drive 6x4 would be better for quarry work.

    It's a great thing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yeah yeah ... As always building tension and play on time and the Great Waited still not coming. Come on SCS we appreciate your hard work but you waste so many of time that should not to be only one one truck, but two or even three. The pace which you are doing that is terrible. Give us the ETS 3 and do something worth of waiting and money.

  46. Why in update 1.14 aren't Mercedes MP4?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because it takes over 6 months to make a truck

      Delete
    2. Since they announced they had permission? 5 months. But that doesn't mean they started to work on it immediately. Remember the modellers are also building other models, for other games, and updates/DLC to ETS 2.Looking at the blog post from last month, it was no where near ready, why would you expect it in this update? Believe me, I want it too, but be patient. .

      Delete
    3. So, can I expect on this Mercedes at the end of November?

      Delete
    4. You can expect it when its finished. It could be six from now for all we know

  47. Good news about the future patch and nice to see 50Keda joining SCS staff. Keep up the amazing work guys!

    ReplyDelete
  48. First, thanks for your great progress you have made til today and for the future projects! (=

    Today I thought that a -kind of- route planner would be great. I've realised for instance I'm trying hard to avoid tollgates at some routes or just want to try some routes different than the gps advises; so it would be really good if we had some options on routes when we got our trailer. What up? (=

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thats so cool, big grats to both SCS and 50Keda, I'm sure you'll be a great addition to the team and great for us the rest of the community, who has'nt played with your mods, we all love them so bet you will be a great addition, and lifted axels, thats really cool. Guess it will be possible to lift and lower it and not just for show :) cant see SCS adding this if it was not working ^^ anyway, I gotta go now so I'll not post a huge rant, got places to see and things to go! But great news, veery excited! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Please make update wich shows speed limit and distance on gps. Pleeeeeease

    ReplyDelete

    1. The GPS shows the distance with a long long time and the speed limit on the gps is there with a few months too

    2. I think he means on the in cab GPS

    3. Would be nice to change the zoom on the cab GPS as well. Then I wouldn't need the overlay one at all.

  51. 50keda congratulations .... man ...and good luck in work ;) ;)

  52. As one of the users using mods from 50keda, all I want to say is CONGRATS!!! This is really awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  53. What about the Scania update truck?

    ReplyDelete
  54. PLEASE READ THIS, DEAR SCS SOFT
    I have an idea for the future. It's hard to stop a truck with heavy cargo, so I suggest you to make squeak tire sounds while player is trying to stop the vehicle at high speed (maybe 70 km/h and more)

  55. Parabéns ao grande trabalho, a todos os desenvolvedores

  56. Hi guys. I have a question. When we will get more drivers to hire? I mean ... I have 153 drivers and agency say to me "come tomorrow" - but still haven't new drivers. Please give us more drivers in next update. Cheers. SCS is the best.

    1. Yes, I agree, I have the same problem, we need more drivers!

  57. Congratulations 50k, you're one of the few that I respect at modding, and your work is awesome, I personally love it. You deserve this great job, sucess on it! ;)
    But, that lifted axle, is it an opition of chassis or you can change it while in-game?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I hope that smart guy (50keda) will be able to add a second articulated point and many new features that are still missing in the game. And again, SEASONS!!! Where are the four SEASONS?!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hi 50Keda,

    I hope we are still the one and other of you see outside of SCS. ;)


    Nevertheless, I wish you all the best with your employer SCS.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Guys, please tell me - what about own trailers? when is it coming? i think this is one of main things everyone is waiting for :)
