Beta update 1.17 is now ready for public testing!

We are about ready to put the beta of the upcoming game update featuring numerous major changes in your hands!


For the past three months we were rewriting a big part of the world-rendering pipeline. As we were finishing work on Scandinavia, it became unavoidable to find new tricks to speed the game up.

Finally as of this Monday, the pieces of the puzzle started falling together, and we now believe that we are in better shape than where we started (and we still keep on pushing). We see better worst-case performance: on low-end and mid-range hardware, framerate is now more stable and doesn't dip too deep and fluctuate so much under heavy stress. In some cases we find the current best-case framerate to be below 1.16 speed (simpler scenes on high-end computer configurations), but not by a wide margin. The important thing is that places where performance was the worst, like certain city centers, now perform better overall.

But in fact it's the purpose of the open beta to hear back from you and see if the statistics on the wider tester group confirm our hopes. The final 1.17 update should go out alongside the release of Scandinavia map-addon, so we had better stress-test it prior to its release next month; time flies too fast!

As per usual, the public_beta branch is available via Steam platform to all Euro Truck Simulator 2 owners.

With this update, our aim was also to respond to a number of popular feature requests. For example, we have increased the number of drivers you can hire to work for you, or added sequential wiper speed... Included are also various changes to telemetry system to increase its functionality. Check out the full changelist below to see details on all of the changes we've made.

Please let us know on our forums if you have any issues or would just like to leave feedback on any of the changes. We expect to continue updating the open beta frequently through the rest of the month.

Treat this as an experimental build! It would surely be prudent to make a back-up of your player profile! If you are too concerned about losing a few hours of your career progression by possibly having to go back to a back-up, just stay away from the beta and wait until we say the update is ready for general use.

Full changelist:


Code

  • Improved rendering engine
  • Improved GPU memory consumption
  • Improved support for multi-monitor systems (configuration is explained on the ETS2 website)

  • Successfully docked achievement works

UI

  • Added cancel button in URL confirmation
  • Sort jobs by sender and receiver name

  11. I was hoping so much for the Benz... I was pretty disappointed after my euphoria when I saw the patch in my beta list, to see the Majestic still in the favourite design list, and later in the dealer.

    But the changes seem to be great, and that's an extremely good patch as it seems. I'll keep testing it though. Great update again guys! Keep it going.

    I hope the Actros will come with the final 1.17 though, and not even later ;)

    1. @Jonas Zeidler: If I'm not wrong, the new Mercedes will come AFTER the DLC release, meaning it will be 1.18 or something like that. On the official note they said "a patch shortly after the release of Scandinavia", so my guess is this patch is just pre-DLC + some changes and features, and after it, another patch with the new truck.

      Delete
    2. They made it absolutely clear (weeks ago) that the Mercedes was not coming in this patch. It's coming in the next patch after this.

      2. As for the drivers, they've increased the number, but they didn't say by how many.

      3. "6 wheels for Renault" means that Renault now has 6x4 and 6x2 (probably also 6x2/4) without mods (vs 4x2 before update) That's my guess

    +++on the GPS map, there is a blurry white rectangle over Strasbourg for example (maybe is not singular bug)
    +++sunshafts are very sharpening, and their reflection on the corner post of the cabin is just UGLY !! they must be blurry and soft (better rendered)
    +++random low FPS overall, not just in cities (on 2600k, GTX770 4GB, and 16 GB ddr3, NO MODS)

  47. Por favor atualize o mostrador de pressão de turbo para ele ir ao maximo em todas as marchas e não somente nas primeiras, a pressão que ele desenvolve na 1º marcha e na ultima é sempre a mesma ( na vida real). Mas no jogo quanto maior a marcha menor é a pressão, isso no Volvo FH16 Classic.

    Please update the turbo pressure display for him to go to the maximum in all gears and not only in the first, the pressure he develops in 1st gear and the last is always the same (in real life). But in the game the greater the lower range is the pressure, this in Volvo FH16 Classic.

    1. kkkkk, esse mostrador de "turbo" que tu ta falando não tem nada a ver com o turbo, ele é um mostrador de consumo instantâneo, quanto maior a marcha menos combustível é gasto pelo fato das marchas mais leves terem menos torque, e as mais pesadas terem mais torque. É bom estudar um pouco mais sobre o painel do veículo.

  82. Ahoj SCS, mám problémy s řazením u tahačů. Mám nastavenou reálnou automatickou převodovku spolu s adaptivní automatickou převodovkou a když tahač nastartuji tak defaultně je zařazena rychlost D5 a až při rozjíždění mi z D5 hodí D1 a tím pádem se mi tahač "zakuckává" (není plynulé řazení). Ve verzích 1.16.x jsem toto nastavení měl také a řazení se zdálo být v pořádku. Zkuste s tím něco udělat, děkuji.

  95. I must say one thing. A reaction between press brake-button and reaction (i mean interpolation of brake pedal using button/key control) in the game is too long (almost 1,5 second). I don't know it's a error or it's a right solution but it's very uncomfortable. In 1.16.3s there is okay, but in 1.17 beta it isn't. I hope you back to 1.16 brake configuartion.

  96. You can change that in ETS2 options...

    1. Do you mean level of brake force? I tried that. It doesn't work.

  97. the starting gear is too high without trailer 😕😕
    normally you have the 2nd or 3rd gear to drive on but yet it is the 5th and that is to high

    Or could you make an option in the menu where you can set the starting gear ( with and without trailer) please.

  98. First, I have to say that I really like all the changes, and the new weather and sky, but I have to agree with many people here. Night at 2.00am looks like 5am on summer when sun is about to go up. I miss that pitch black when driving at night.

    Not sure if this is a beta bug, or a feature due to few people complaining about dark nights. I hope it's the first.

  99. SCS, if you implement this, please implement a button which ia a selector that selects New graphics and Original SCS Graphics. That will be much better for the ones who prefer the original graphics.

  100. This update is amazing! Love the multi monitor support, especially option 3. Feels like i'm driving a truck, period. SCS RULES!!!!

  101. while you are working on making the trucks more realistic how about openable windows and interior lights

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They discussed openable windows in an interview. The reason they haven't done it, is because right now the sounds outside, and inside are entirely different files. To make openable windows feel real, and not just thrown in any old way, it means totally rewriting how the game handles sounds.

  102. Is it just me, but on this update the mentioned wiper settings I.e wipers on mode 1 will be on a timer then mode 2 will be full wipers... it's stated in the update, but it don't work in my game. I believe it does when I have no mods enabled but that's no good in my opinion. They need to make it override everything thats in your modification.

    But could someone just update this post regarding the if this update is working?

    Regards,

    Reece

    1. All mods has to be updated to support this feature. Default game files contains proper definitions of wipers.

    2. It is working, but you have to press the button two times in a row within like two seconds to set it on intervals. If you press it once after that like two seconds after, it will turn off.

  106. I'm really impressed with the new update. Graphics completely changed a plus. I did not think that such changes will be possible. Now I'm looking forward to the Scandinavian DLC and Mercedes. Good job.
    I wonder if the game does not have entered into the selection mode of economics. Could be done as in the case of RPGs: easy, normal, hard. E.g. for the same delivery of easy was getting to be such. Eur 8000, as a normal 4000 Eur for a heavy 2000 Eur. Easy to change and it would have looked different.

  107. Here's another few ideas to think about

    .1 adjustable air susspention
    .2 tiltable cabs
    .3 random failures eg: clutch failure, engine failure, transmission failure, electronics failure. And if the failure occurs you must wait until roadside assistance of the truck specific dealer eg: volvo or scania arives to asses the cause of failure and if it can't be repaired alongside the road the truck must then be towed to the closest specific dealer or the dealer of you're choice. After all you're paying for the tow. Incorporate real life in to it like waranty etc if the truck is under waranty you don't pay for towing and parts and labour. After all this is how it is in the real life out there. Not getting in to a minor fender bender and the engine, transmission etc failes

    ReplyDelete
  108. Also when you're truck gets towed In and must stay for repairs you should get the option from the dealer to hire a loan truck to move you're cargo to the drop off point

  109. The update improved things much, much was cool such as physics, now the graph was horrible, could return the old graph, because that ta horrible.

  110. SCS, Very Good was the time, I really liked it ... but only an opinion, could put some different trees? ... Because everything green know it ... maybe let the game a little better viewing all, everything is green drab. .. as if walking in circles, all much the same ...

  111. Hi SCS, it seems to me that when I drive in game during the day, so is less light in the environment (is more dark / darkness). Then it at 15:00 afternoon looks like would was 20:00 evening.

  112. I haven't updated to 1.17 yet (want to drive back to my home base myself instead of resetting), but has anyone encountered any incompatibilities with certain mods?

    1. I had a 50K wheel mod witch just went missing

      Delete
    2. I have update to the 1.17 beta now and my wheel mod has disappeared too. But that was expected, since the rims and tyres are now seperate parts.

      Other than that all my mods work, although I had to remove some weather files from a Scania mod (didn't even know it was there).

  113. It's very important to have a clear understanding of the English written and spoken dialect as was made clear in the latest news when logging in to the game and when logging in to world of trucks that the Mercedes Benz will be available AFTER !!!!! Scandinavia dlc AFTER !!!! not before !!! Read the blogs !!!

  116. "Added toggle input control" for engine brake. Could you be so kind to explain me what does it mean?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It should mean that the button for engine brake works like an on/off button, so you don't have to hold the button down.

      Haven't tried it yet myself, though.
