World of Trucks report


We haven't reported much recently about what is going on with our World of Trucks vision. Yet through all our recent releases, in the deepest and darkest caverns of our office, a small team has been integrating networking code, programming the back-end servers, and establishing base economical design structures of World of Trucks. The project is very much alive, although we have to admit that we are slower in being able to roll out the first wave of features than we hoped a year ago.

We are about to achieve an internal milestone at last, and we'll start preparing the first proof of concept test with the World of Trucks community at large. The plan is to provide the facility to take jobs via the Job Market on the World of Trucks website to deliver inside our Euro Truck Simulator 2 game, and have the results reported and stats updated back on the WoTr site..


With such a system in place, we'll open up a route to do more frequent special events (still remember last XMas gift delivery event?). Thanks to a system of events or "quests" provided via World of Trucks, we should be able to spice up the experience for some of our most hard core players who play the game every day. But that's only a start, the "online jobs" system should be at the core of a major upgrade of World of Trucks eventually, providing robust Virtual Truck Companies support.


But for now, let's show you a hint of what's coming in the first wave. We call the new online delivery jobs "Contracts" - you will sign up for them directly from the World of Trucks website. In the current form, the presentation is a kind of mixture between Quick Jobs and Freight Market you are used to seeing in ETS2. It allows for performing the jobs using a stock truck as configured in the standard game, but it doesn't rule out the use of modded trucks. Completing the contracts will also still contribute to your progress through the normal campaign of the game, adding the appropriate XPs and money earned to your bank account.

    1. It is needed for the VTC community

    2. You do realise that ETS 2 MP isn't made by SCS?

      Delete
    3. He obviously does realize that. That's what he was talking about. You didn't even read his comment, but you're already patronizing him. Very clever.

    4. Pavel has already addressed this in interviews... it's years off.

  5. It would be pretty neat if there was world of trucks page built in the game, so you could just click on a icon in game menu instead of using steam browser or alt tabbing :)

    1. but then again, whats the point, why add the site in-game if you could just do normal procedure in-game. I think this feature was ment for people who are forexample at work, go on wot and request a vjob, then when they are home, complete the job. No offence 2 you just wanted 2 bring it out :)

      Delete
    2. They should keep the site but also make it accesable from the game, otherwise getting jobs etc. from it will be pain in the a**

      Delete
    3. it is accessible. The Steam browser is VERY easy for me to use and I am always using it to respond to messages, etc. while in game driving a route.

      The main thing is I treat it like I do in real life. No texting and driving. When i get to a rest stop or something and I am safely parked, then I tend to my messages, check the web, etc., then move on.

      So ... yeah ... it's already in game. :)

  8. Nice to see some development in WoT. Hope that mods will be supported (in a later stage). I really want to see where this will go. You guys have some nice ideas (from what I've heard in interviews w/ Pavel)! So yeah... Love this!

  9. Btw, sometimes messages appear 2/3x, and it's really annoying... Idk if you can fix this tho...

    1. Theyll get to it whenever they want to. Stop spamming them with such requests. Ive seen you lots of times asking for the same thing on basically every other post. If you want them so bad, make them yourself. Youre more than welcome to.

    5. Sam.joe.. Why use mod, when they can do it and we can support scs team? Shame on you

      Delete
    6. You need to use mods until they make one,if they do.Then you won't have to ask for it in each freaking blog post.And stop saying that Romania is Hungary,like you do with every other country that surrounds you.Do you want the whole planet?

      Delete
    7. We will take our contry back! Why steal from others? Transylvania is still Hungary' ❤️

      Delete
    8. Romania has many lost territories as well,but we are happy with what we have now.We didn't steal anything,many territories were just given to us in 1918 out of pure luck.

    9. Transylvania is hungary' moldavia is Romania!

    14. Wow. Just ... wow. it takes literally like ... 10 - 15 minutes to do a decent flag/county themed paint job in Photoshop and have it properly placed on the wireframe of the truck in Blender. Just do the paint yourself and enjoy it. The time you have taken making requests for the last year or so for something even a 3 year old could have done in less than 30 minutes.

    15. I dont want mod, cant you read? I want them to do it so we can support scs team! You just here commenting so you can argue.. Youre like an 3 year old, grow up man!

  23. i play ets2 with steam i have no mods and when i travel to Engeland and start to drive there my game is crashed

    ReplyDelete
  24. Please SCS explain me one thing. On this blog in the comments you have ideas for further improving the ETS2. On your forum the same. As I read your posts, you can still see some strange ideas, which do not hit any player. Strange it all, really. Why you do not do what we please you?

  25. Приветствую разработчиков. Первым делом хочу поблагодарить замечательную игру!

    Но в мире игры на мой взгляд крайне много недостатков:
    1. Нет полноценной и многофункциональной настройки графики, приходится настраивать через config.cfg.
    2. "Мертвый" - синтетический мир, крайне мало животных, диких зверей и птиц нет вообще. К примеру на дороге ночью должны быть лисы, совы, олени, лоси. Днем птицы должны сидеть на ЛЭП и т.д, посему очень скучно ехать по однообразной дороге.
    3. Нет кочек и колеи на дороге, машина едет как по рельсам, нет луж.
    4. Нет грязи и листьев с деревьев в том числе попадающих на лобовое стекло.
    5. Мало погодных условий, нет тумана, утренней изморози и т.д.
    6. Нет включателя света в кабине.

    На самом деле можно еще долго перечислять недостатки, понятно что разработчики не всесильны, думаю что донесу свои мысли о недостатках и они меня услышат.

  26. SCS, I thought it would be of great importance if you would release a second newsletter regarding the upcoming projects. By the way, are there any news regarding the Coach Simulator? I would be greatful if you would take these thoughts into consideration. Best regards!

  28. That's cool, a interconnected system...but what if I want to take an special load, provided by my mods? Would it show up at World of Trucks, or there will show only jobs that are in default game?
    And, how it would looks like after you finish that job? Will it show, like, the XP and Money earned, the "Quality" of that Job?
    I would be great to have those options, mainly the first one, about showing your jobs from modded game. For example:
    If you are online in the game, and take any job, then it will upload: the name, the company, the destination, the weight and the payment. So, other players would be able to see what you are doing, how you are "Trucking".
    I think it is the begin of a future, far away, official, Multiplayer mode?

  29. While weather cycles, the trucks and the roads look great, most part of the nature does not - especially water surfaces of rivers and lakes. How come no one has noticed?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are right. Water surfaces look horrible and unrealistic. The new weather system ,which was introduced with the Scandinavian DLC, might be very well done, but there is still scope for improvement.

  31. This will be done in the regular euro truck simulator 2 not in the online ?

  32. Cool idea and a nice way to expand on WoT.

    I guess this feature will make more sense once a bigger economy/world is built up around WoT.

    Reading between the lines a little BUT I think this announcement may hint at the possibility to own your own trailer by signing contracts with shipping companies... At least that is my opinion.

    Always a pleasure to read new announcements, the support/development for this game is top Notch!

  33. It will be more greater if i can buy own company trailers, which i can take from garage to any different jobs, this is what i think.. but hey, its a good start anyway, keep doing(y)

  35. Realmente espero que haja mais ação para os que estão mais avançados, pois por mais que se goste do ETS2, começa a ficar monótonas as entregas. Uma pergunta, tendo fuzo horário, sol geometricamente posicionado, porque não há as estações do ano?? Se isso é que desafia o o caminhoneiro, alem de entregar a carga intacta.

    ReplyDelete
  36. SCS let us own our own trailers... let us buy them, customize them and spray them. This would add a lot of realism to the game. i love this new idea of WoT btw.

    ReplyDelete
  37. U know in some points akula have reason see how many ideas or recomendations SCS dont consider like this guy who always ask for hugarian paintjob or getting our own trailers i thanks all modders to make our dreams come true as like for tandems truck

    ReplyDelete
  38. But thx for them to make efforts for this game to become realistic

  39. Your office has caverns!? Does the building inspector know about this?

    In all seriousness though, I like where you're going with WoT. I've never been able to get into the whole VTC thing, but this might convince me otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I do like the blog post and I look forward to it whenever it happens. WoT has been a place-holder for a long time which SCS seems to have acknowledged in fairness. There is a lot of meta game opportunity here and again I look forward to learning more.

    A question linked to the whole concept of Virtual Trucking companies ... why, with over 400 hrs on record, multiple garages, trucks and drivers, all trucks with the Irish flag livery from a DLC, have I never ever seen one of my own trucks amongst all the AI trucks I pass on the roads? Is this really a technical impossibility to achieve?

  50. They should make a DLC where you can buy name brand trailers. Or maybe mechanical damage and visible damage and trucks get dirty all in one DLC for 20 dollars. P.S. I wouldn't mind paying that for all that damage and dirt.
