Five Years and Counting

Today marks the fifth anniversary of our blog. Those five years were a very exciting time for us; the success of Euro Truck Simulator 2 has absolutely exceeded our expectations. It would not be possible without the support of our loyal fans, thank you guys and girls!

However, we are still just warming up for bigger things to come!

With the release of the starter edition of American Truck Simulator, we'll finally set our foot on the new continent to attract new fans. We are crossing our fingers for at least moderate success with the game's release - to earn additional resources to keep growing the SCS Software team. We would like to accelerate the pace of development considerably, and I am sure you would appreciate it too.

Meanwhile, work continues on World of Trucks. It may not be visible yet as the website is currently focusing mostly on presenting cool screenshots, but the grand plan for it is to make it a destination providing deep gameplay features for both ETS2 and ATS - features that would not be possible to pull off in the context of our current single-player games ;).

We have made the commitment to continue supporting and expanding the universe of Euro Truck Simulator 2 for many years after its release, and there are many cool features and great new content in development for the game. See below for a glimpse of what is coming soon...

      At least they don't release known crap when they release. Sure there are some bugs and gremlins but the base code and the updates have been solid to date with ETS2. Here's hoping for ATS follows the same path .... and sooner rather than later.

  20. Really nice!!! I've seen in the SCS base folders, that they're new trailers coming. One trailer has a hook in the rear end, and the other trailer is a tandem... So I pressume that we soon can drive the trailer and also have a tandem trailer hooked up... Keep up the good work SCS Software

  23. Cool, but will be added exterior styling, for example on older trucks there is no siderkits on 6x4 chassis...

    ReplyDelete
  24. EPIC!!! I hope that there will be some accesories like hanging truck's emblem or in future possibility to change trim in interior like was in Rig n Roll.
    For example Actros MPIII could have wood inserts on dashboard and wood&leather steering wheel. This makes interior look more luxury :)

      Like the two before me do you think SCS staff is working for free? Or would you work for free for SCS?
      And nobody says that you must invest 1, 2, 3 or even 5 dollars or euro for a DLC :)

    2. es , but search on Malmbergs Åkeri on Google and you'll see what I mean

      Delete
    3. I know what you mean and I also live in Sweden. With a secondary hook it's gonna be possible to hook up a dolly with a trailer to a rigid truck. So far it's only Actros 2014 who has a rigid chassi, I discovered it when I imported Actros into Blender.

      Delete
    4. Those malmberg ones aren't possible in ETS2, since ETS2 only has 1 pivoting point. 24m's like malmbergs will probably be in ETS3 or ETS4

      Delete
    5. But it's gonna be possible... In the latest version 1.20 there's new trailers in the SCS base file, a trailer with a hook in the rear end, and a tandem trailer to go with it. It means it's gonna be 2 pivoting points in the game....

      Delete
    6. I've put the trailer with rear hook in the game, I can't of course use it, not yet.... Here's a link to a screenshot from ETS 2

    Teraz k hre: Toto dlc vyzerá veľmi dobre, aj keď skôr ako patch by to bolo lepšie, ale zas chápem, že potrebujete peniaze na niektoré veci....
    Moje návrhy - 1. drl u Scanii, Daf-u, Mercedesu aj Ivecu svietia v hre slabšie ako v skutočnosti, čiže bolo by fajn ich upraviť. 2. navrhujem upraviť zadné svetlá Scania streamline, teda tak ako majú v skutočnosti svietiť: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEJQaRSntx4 3. Mohli by ste aj spraviť u niektorých diskov, že by sa dala zmeniť farba ich stredu podľa farby trucku..

  59. "We are crossing our fingers for at least moderate success with the game's release"

    Well you know...if you had release ATS in early access instead of waiting and waiting on truck licenses ..you would had tons of money to grow the team..now ATS is WIP without making any money and at the rate this is going i guess we well play ATS in 2018+, 2 years ago you said like "Oh we are doing our best to bring ATS ASAP to your computers!" yeah right..

      WB already tried this method with Batman: Arkham Knight.. needless to say, if companies don't release as near to perfect as possible games the negative feedback usually goes tits up! Best to wait.

    2. No..Batman was different release it wasn't tested...but you know if ATS comes in early access alot of people can "test" and report bugs fast and well if you want to play ATS without bugs wait until its out of early access this exist for consumer options.

  62. I'm probably going to to buy this DLC but I doubt I'll use any of the accessories. Not really a big fan of clutter in my truck, but I want to support them financially. Some more options on the outside would be nice however. Hopefully soon we'll get tandems, coaches, and in-game truck company skins(a suggestions I hope someone takes notice) for our trucks. Would love to drive IKA truck and trailers around.
