Euro Truck Simulator 2 - 1.17 Update is available now!


We are delighted to announce that as of now the 1.17 update is available. While Steam players are getting it automatically right away, as always, it will take us another day to complete and release the non-Steam game build.

The public beta for 1.17 was a massive success for us. Plenty of bugs we could not foresee were found by the community. We much appreciate your support and dedication!

Let us do a short recap of major items in the 1.17 update:
  • New weather and lighting setup
  • New sounds for DAF XF Euro 6
  • New drivers, new driver art
  • Tires and rims turned into independent accessories
  • Added six-wheeled chassis for both Renault Magnum and Premium
  • Better support for retina displays (OSX)
  • Traffic AI behavior improvements
  • Improved engine performance and stability
  • Improved support for multi-monitor systems
  • A full list of modding changes can be found here.
For full list of improvements check out the previous blog.

We'll see how the wide-scale rollout of 1.17 fares, there is always the danger of a need for a quick hotfix patch, but we think that the game is currently stable and prepared for Scandinavia expansion release in two days, at midnight CEST of May 7, 2015!

    3. All you are doing now days is renting your game. Steam owns your game you don't. If steam should ever go away so does your game. Do you want to spend your money on a game you don't own? or have a dvd that will last forever.

    4. I have lost interest to i do not rent games from steam.

    5. I was getting ready to buy the game until i found out it was download only. if i buy a game i want it in my hands. not some download and a promise my game will be there in the future.

    6. What a load of misinformation! It is a trivial matter to burn the downloaded installer files to CD or DVD.

      Delete
    7. Simple solution, have it on all media. That's what I'm doing, plus getting a copy for the mac and have a usb drive with all the updates so if something should happen to Steam, God forbid, at least I'll have the game.

  9. I dowloaded new Update 1.17.1s !

    And when I start Icon in BIN folder for 64x bit version .... it does not work ... it works on 32x bit .... lol

    on Steam works ok ....

    why we do not have start Icon for 64bit version in BIN folder ?? I looked in game.log and result is start in 32 bit !!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Go to Library - Games - Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Properties - then, under set launch options, type in '-64bit'. Then you can use the icon as usual.

  19. Dear SCS thank you for update. Unfortunatelly I have serious problem with ETS2 right now, because of this update... Please take a look :
    http://www11.pic-upload.de/04.05.15/hu2wkzvrhvh.jpg

    I had and have NO MODS that could do this. In past I only tested custom paintjobs but kept save games clean from mods.

    Other thing is that game works laggy and this suprises me as it worked fine in past.
    The only thing that I know for sure right now, is that I'm getting more and more angry and got headache ;/

    2. So for now situation looks like this : I've spent ALL DAY LONG thinking what's wrong... I reinstalled game, lowered settings to max (pixels rulez) and still nothing BUT I found out that there's something wrong with game performance too... Why?
      When I started playing ETS2 after premiere game was running smooth at default settings... From some time it started being laggy (I did not change anything about graphics in options).
      The funny thing is it's laggy in main menu or in city... I understand city, many objects, vehicles etc... but main menu with only one truck? O.o
      GTA IV works better for me (this game is known for bad optimalisation for PC and "funny things" after premiere)

  29. With the new update, all the windows in the buildings are purple. Why is that. And when I drive from Rotterdam to Brussels, as soon as I drive onto the bridge just after leaving Rotterdam, the game crashes.

    1. Im experiencing a very similar problem. Steam updated my game to 1.17.1 today, which I was very happy about, but as soon as I started playing the game, it kept crashing and taking me back to Windows. I have no active mods in the game, deleted them as soon as I saw the update, but that didn't help. Tried playing with the graphic settings but that didn't help. Set up a new profile in the game, as I thought the game might be picking up mods in old saves, but that didn't help either. The game just kept crashing after a few minutes of playing. Im slowly running out of ideas. Does anyone know what might be wrong in this case? I will be happy with any advice you can give me :D

    1. I have a feeling the game is starting to have the same problem with XP that Microsoft is having, not supporting it. With me, it is road markings disappearing and the game is very laggy. I think XP is on the way out as a recognized O/S.

  33. the work of scs is to be congratulated. But the SCS could attempt to improve the inside of the trucks, as the pedals on automatic trucks that are not 3 but 2, the indicator lights, the illumination of the panel be according to the actual truck, and a very important item that would be realistic, the mirrors are more realistic, more like the real trucks. The Scania could be reworked, inside as it is different from the streamline version and your mirrors are also very different. Another very interesting thing, for those who play with keyboard, joystick and steering wheels with sequential exchange, is able to interfere in trade marches, as well as in real life. In the game it is very good, and the new dlc's'll be getting up to encourage improvements in the game.

  72. SCS never set a release date until they gave the date officially.
    Amazon fooled you with fake release dates and suckered you into paying.
    Unless it comes direct from SCS, all release dates are made up.

    So basically you're blaming SCS for Amazon making dates up.
