Holiday Event Round Up and Peek into Sweden

Greetings, and Happy New Year 2015 to all of you!

Looks like Euro Truck Simulator 2 was played a lot during the festive season. Over 34,000 people managed to complete our Holiday Event! We are astounded by such activity and eager to provide more cool stuff on World of Trucks in 2015.

Holiday Event will come to an end on Wednesday, January 14th 2015. If you are still in progress of trying to earn your exclusive Raven Truck Design DLC by completing it -  hurry up!

Another good news is that DLC Scandinavia is in the final production stages now. We sure still need to test it properly, tweak it, and optimize it - with such a big project that's a ton of work on its own - but we have considerably better testing capacity and process available to us now compared to previous project releases. Let's hope all will go smoothly.

Let us show you some screenshots around the Swedish city of Kalmar:

  13. Do we know which or how many cities there will be from each country?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I actually compiled a list of possible cities in the game, by looking at pictures previously put on the blog (this is not certain):

      Gothenburg Orebro Kalmar
      Jonkoping Stockholm Vasteras
      Vaxjo Oslo Aarlborg
      Malmo Karlskrona Esbjerg
      Sodertalje Linkoping Stavanger?

      I'm not sure if the map will spread as far west as Stavanger, but I saw a few signs that it may.

  21. Just wondering:
    Will there ever be some kind of cargo-weight based rewarding in the game? (More XP / money for heavier stuff) Maybe rewarding the lower fuel consumption at finishing the job? How about introducing difficulty levels? :)

    Anyway, pretty awesome work so far, I love that the game keeps evolving and gets better with all patch and DLC! Great job, thanks SCS!!

  26. I hope that with more graphic detail, there will be some optimisation of CPU overhead. It gives me headaches when I have stable 75FPS and it drops to 45 in some cities (Košice)

  34. The roads are way too dark! In Sweden the roads are much brighter and worn out..

    I'm excited for this but please at least give the road and sidewalk their proper brightness, or this will look completely foreign to Swedes..

    1. Stop whining. Do you think the UK part of the game does look English, Scottish, etc? In the UK, roads are VERY narrow, the pavement is painted with the cities' names the roads leads into, and other important things, also tha landscape is totally different - unfortunately in the game the UK looks the same as Slovakia, Italy, or anything. At least the Scandinavia DLC will have some sort of personality, some individual look, at least it will "taste" Scandinavian.

      Delete
    2. I'm not whining, I'm giving real criticism.
      Apart from the first sentence, your reply was quite informative. I thank you for that..

      Delete
  35. How about telling us WHEN will the DLC be out instead of showing pictures and bragging how good you , eh ? How about you address the issue of not being able to add more loading screen pics ? The game gives an error saying that:
    Mipmapping is not supported for npot texture: '/material/ui/loading/bar_pics/pic11.dds'.
    It gives this errors just for the ones added, but not for changing the vanilla with new ones, got it ? I know this error is because one of the shot resolution is not a power of 2 (binary thing), but the vanilla pics have 1440x512 , which is obviously NOT a power of 2 (1440 that is). So quit sitting around doing nothing and fix this issue pronto !

  36. Can we get rigid truck and tandem feature in the new DLC? I really wish the official support to tandem trucks!

  37. Launch DLC Scandinavia before GTA V for PC. Because otherwise many people will take to buy the DLC. As they will play GTA V to PC, and many other games will be forgotten for a long time.

  41. Are there any plans to make the ferries drive-on, similar the way you drive on to the channel tunnel train? I enjoy the challenge of manoeuvering through awkward spaces :-)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Exactly man, that's what I wanted to ask! I Also, the whole ferry crossing could be made more exciting, such as waiting for the ferry among many other trucks, multiple sailings, where you can choose which ferry to take, the nearest being more expensive than the later crossings. Taking a ferry could be made a very fun thing, with realistic drive-on and off, not just a rushed element of the game.

      Delete
    2. +1 Are there any plans to make the ferries drive-on, similar the way you drive on to the channel tunnel train? I enjoy the challenge of manoeuvering through awkward spaces :-)

      Delete
    3. Where I live, the trucks have to board into the ferry the last and entering in reverse. I just admire those drivers every fucking time I watch them doing it like it's the easiest thing in the world, while there is less than 20cm of margin on each side of the wheels, and below is a 3m. of drop into the sea, and the approach to the ramp is after executing a 2 short and narrow 90 degree right and left turns...again IN REVERSE !!!
      This guys are wizards to me because they are doing it almost on a daily basis. I would really like to be challenged in a similar way in the game, it would feel rewarding.

    I grew up in Kalmar and spent alot of time around the castle. This is epic as seen from a Swede and ETS2 enthusiast! I now live in Linköping and I've seen the screenies from there too. Fantastic work.

  53. You did a great job with this DLC, but please not hurry with publishing, i'm sure there is still lot of stuff to fix, preetify.

    I wonder if the next map DLC could bring us the same way of fidelity in France, Italy, Hungary ... Spain and Portugal.

    And please add some minor things to gameplay: button for fastening the seatbelt, second speed for wipers, random engine malfunctions, random electrical system (and also lights..) malfunctions, replacing (buying) new electrical battery when almost empty, replacing tires after xxxx km (NOT repairing as now), more overtaking on route, more accidents, 1-2% more traffic BETWEEN CRITICAL HOURS, some more pedestrians in cities (and workers-employees in company yard) , specific trafficlights rules in every contry, and so on.

  56. Fantastic images ....keeps ETS2 fresh. I don't expect it as I think it would be a huge undertaking but having the quality of the road junctions in the ETS2 base map match up with what what I experienced in ProMods would be great. Those one lane junctions still get me .... LOL

  68. I want to be able to mod the interiors of the truck as I want, but I can't because the older trucks have common files and, except tones of gray and black, nothing else work to make beautiful interiors for Scania R, Iveco Stralis, Man and Volvo classic (plus some files which influence from DAF XF). They look ugly, you got that SCS ?? As I made possible for new trucks to have their own interior with no interfere from other files, change for old truck this possibility.

    I really wish various continuous travel route for my drivers. Not ALWAYS returning to base.
    And second, they could make the loan economy a little bit more realistic. For example, after level 8 (or 10), 10.000 loan value is useless, but a 200.000 and 300.000 options are welcomed.
    Regarding the rates, it could randomly vary over time in a small intervall (for 100.000 exaemple, it could be from 16% to 18%, with one decimal (16,4%) ).
    In the same time, the 12% rate for 400.000 is not enough (13-14%)

    Same with the billing for repairing the truck, the value could vary over time.

    Foglights to all trucks...
    And the list could go on....

  74. Hello SCS and all virtual drivers,

    I have to say that i am very happy to see the future DLC, however i have to make some questions and i really hope you can give some answers also:

    1st - Any release date to Scandinavia DLC?

    2nd - New Mercedes MP4, announced 25th August 2014?

    3rd - Euro Coach - you show us some nice pictures of Irizar bus and no more news since then.

    4th - When Mercedes brand will replace that "Majestic" ?

    5th - When can you show us some features about future ATS?

    Thank you very much, hope you can give some information about this topics.

    best regards
