Steam Workshop support coming!


Greetings truckers!

We are working now on update 1.23 for ETS2, and 1.2 for ATS. One of the major features coming with the updates is support for Steam Workshop. This feature is a really long time coming, considering that all of our projects always were popular for user modifications.

Right now our Workshop is still in limited testing. Some of our testers are passionate modders in their own. Even during testing there are already some cool mods appearing. Here is how the page looks right now:


We are looking forward to the public beta where the community for both games will be able to evaluate and test the current implementation.

The ease of use of Steam Workshop is fascinating - you just choose the mod, press the "Subscribe" button, and the mod will be automatically downloaded and appear in your in-game mod manager. The Steam client will take care of automatic updates of the mod in the event that the creator of the mod releases a new version. What is more, if you decide to switch between computers or to reinstall your OS, all the mods will be downloaded in each new installation automatically without any need to create backups.

Each player will be able to rate any mod, so high quality mods should quickly rise to the top. You will be able to sort mods by rank, popularity, or browse the most recent ones.

There's more for mod authors


In order to ship your mod you will need to download SCS Workshop Uploader - a free standalone Steam application we have created just for this purpose. This is what the tool looks like:


Alongside the Uploader tool, we are also preparing our own Wiki dedicated entirely to mod creation process.


The goal is to have a place where everybody interested in modding SCS games will find all the info needed. It should be the ultimate source covering all areas of official SCS modding tools, their documentation and tutorials, things like for example advice on how to adapt the mods to the newest game version. The Wiki will also provide additional information about our game engine and its possible configuration options.

It will most likely still take us a couple of weeks before we reach this stage, but we are looking forward to seeing you in the upcoming open beta for ETS2 and ATS to sample the new mod support!

  2. when we will get the new Renault Range T and DLC France?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess when it's done? I'm also waiting impatiently for some news about Pete 389 and Volvo licence deal but they get those kind of questions multiple times every day so there is no point asking one more time. If there'll be any major development/release date it'll be stated here on the blog.

      Delete
    2. The new Renault Range T must come together with the DLC Southern France as bonus ...

    3. Maybe the should cut the DLCS on smaller pieces ? what do you think about Bourgogne DLC or Bretagne DLC or maybe Paris DLC. If new DLC then only rest of the West with Spain and Portugal.

      Delete
    4. @Francisco, The Vive La France post says they are working on making THE ENTIRE country again. @Adam, who told ya? @Cyber, It would be smarter to release the entire rebuild of France. Maybe with Spain. But, releasing DLCs as regions wont get many sales though.

  8. That's very convenient for us. But can u guys make steam cloud save? Coz it would be even more convenient

    ReplyDelete
  9. The problem with mods is when e.g. you delete it and than you want to continue the game. So, I have a question to SCS. When will you make mods: tandem trucks, rigid trucks, seasons, double trailers? Your mods are working fine and there are no problem with having it at all. That's why I'm only using SCS original mods.

    1. Drogi qbolku, wiadomość adresowana jest tylko do ciebie, więc piszę ją po polsku...Absolutnie nie ma problemu, by wyłączyć jakikolwiek mod z naszego profilu. On dalej będzie działał bez problemu. Od dwóch lat używam modów/usuwam je na jednym sejwie/profilu, i wszycho mi działa. A modów mam ok. 70 ;)

      Delete
    2. W takim razie muszę spróbować. Wcześniej jak tak robiłem, to mi wyskakiwał komunikat, że nie można wczytać gry i musiałem zaczynać od save-a gdzie nie było wcześniej żadnych modów.

      Delete
    3. Nigdy mi sie tak nie zdarzylo. Nawet jak np usunalem mape, na ktorej kupowalem garaze, to po wczytaniu sejwa (menu pokazalo czywiscie info o braku tej modyfikacji, ale sejw i tak sie wczytal), w menu garazy mialem po prostu je opisane jako niedostepne...i mozna je bylo sprzedac. O dwoch lat mam tylko jeden profil, w ktorym dodaje i usuwam poszczegolne mody. I bez problemow. Jakbys mial jednak wlasne obawy, to zawsze przed dodaniem moda mozesz sobie zrobic kopie zapasowa profilu. Wtedy bedziesz spokojny. Pardon za slownictwo, pisalem z telefonu :)

      Delete
    4. Dzięki za info, tak zrobię. Na tej podstawowej wersji już się nie da grać. I dość już czekania na aktualizacje, których i tak pewnie szybko nie będzie.

    5. Dokladnie. Polityka SCS jest taka a nie inna, i szybko nie zobaczymy niczego ciekawego, tylko takie pierdoly jak ten Steam Workshop...Nie ma opcji bym to uzywal.

      Ja tej gry bez modow sobie nie wyobrazam. Nie wiem jak jestes obeznany na scenie moderskiej, ale na poczatek zarzuc sobie oczywiscie mapy: ProMods v2.01 oraz RusMap v1.6.1. Nie bedziesz zalowal ;) Obie wymagaja Going East i DLC Skandynawii, ale zapewne te oficjalne dodatki juz posiadasz, wiec spoko.

      Milej gry! I dla twego spokoju - zrob sobie kopie zapasowe twego profilu. Dla twego bezpieczenstwa, bys w ciemno niczym nie ryzykowal. Pozdro!

  12. Sounds great SCS. Sadly after 2 1/2 years I'm doubtful that I'll return to playing ETS2 anytime soon if at all. My last sessions all involved playing on the TSM map in North Africa.
    Currently all my playtime is devoted to ATS but I'm just about finished with this small map. :-(
    Thanks for the great gaming experience I've had.

  19. I love both games (ATS and ETS). It will be great to be able to use Steam Workshop to manage mods. Going to various sites to download and copy .scs files works, but is less than ideal, especially when it comes to discoverability of new mods.

    Slightly off-topic, but any news on the Arizona addition for ATS?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probably another half year or so. It took SCS 2 - 3 years to make the current ATS map

    2. Not good also because some mod download sites can have malware doing a piggy back ride into your PC from the actual download site that you're transferred to by the hosting site. Much better if Steam does it.

    I enjoy the games so much I have just begun learning how to skin the trucks maybe I might appear in the steam workshop one day :-)

    3. You can literally just use Winrar/7zip to backup/save your profile. We have been doing this for decades for ETS 2 games. Workshop has been wanted for YEARS now after all of the crap newbies had to go through installing mods. TSM is one of the biggest profile-killers of all.

  43. SCS, do you know how long I have waited for this? Any idea? For years, I have been downloading mods from sites that have had my anti virus ringing alarm bells, getting advisories that my computer has been locked please ring such and such a phone number to get it unlocked, that kind of thing. Those dodgy sites were mostly to do with Chrome, but aside from that, I hope all mod authors take heed of this article and port your mods from those www imsododgyilldestroyyourpc dot com, and put every single mod for both games on the Steam Workshop. I just wish we had that when ETS2 was first released. It would have saved us a lot of bother. This sounds like the best thing to happen to both games and playing both games now just seems a natural progression.

    1. i have no idea what your talking about, but i can wager there are lots and lots of people with chrome browser, who have never encountered the stuff your talking about, probably because most people know what to avoid in the first place. Yes steam worskhop is a great idea, but it should be at the very bottom of the list of priorities, because there are far more important things they need to add to ETS2. If people are incapable of going to ETS 2 mod sites without getting infected with viruses, perhaps those people have no business being online moaning about it.

    1. On pourra télécharger des mods depuis Steam avec un support Steam + SCS pour encourager ceux qui le souhaitent à créer du contenu pour le jeu. Je pense qu'il faut respecter certains critères que ça soit au niveau de l'intérêt du mod, de la qualité, et du respect des licences (pas de marques connues sauf autorisations particulières). SteamWorkShop^est une sorte d'outil qui permet à certains jeux de faciliter l'installation des mods, la mise à jour automatique de ces derniers, etc.

  51. Well Pffffft SCS. Who do you think you're fooling? You're not creating Steam Workshop for our benefit. You're creating it for your self. You know fair well that without the modding community to build and sell your game for you.... your games (ETS2/ATS) are pretty much dead in the water.

    You create an empty slotted game, then sponge off the community. You're like that relative that shows up at the door with gifts for everyone, then tries to camp on the couch for 3 months while enjoying free food and cable TV.

    IMO you (SCS) should be giving the modding community a Royalty payment on your game sale's earnings.... being that its arguably the modding community putting the money in your pocket in the first place.

    1. You know there is a problem when the game's best defence is..... “it will likely get better in the future”........

    2. I think its time SCS to hire popular modders, so they could work from them lool. Actually i doubt if you know, modders community slowly dying, and later we all gonna laugh at this circus, that SCS abuse the honest modders for making Monopoly.

      Delete
    3. for making Monopoly of tons of free mods.
      I'm SURE, SCS got tons of money to make a "simulator", but yes the money goes to somewhere else :)
      They did already record all trucks from real life with High Tec recording stuff and yet they cannot accomplish them in game?Oh poor SCS, i regret u. This shall be either lazy working or inability to work.
      For me, Both games becoming boring as hell, because i see the same as i saw in 2010 with German Truck.
      ATS is detailed in towns, you go in highway and everything is bland, ironic, sarcastic, suddenly curve, bad road lines etc etc..

      And took 2.5 years to made a proper Volvo sound.
      And now they'll again milk us with DLC.
      France DLC... Copy-paste towns. Look the pictures they announced.All houses are same shape,size,structure.
      Honestly, I want a new company to come and kick ass off SCS.

      Delete
    6. SCS should take some of that money they made from ats and its future dlc sales and invest on a new platform for their games...
      I read always here, people taking scs side, scs is a small company is not like aaa game devs... But if they are so small and weak, why are they so stoburn and use in-house engine for their games??? Would it not be better if they would use an existing engine on the market and build their games on that... I guess, yeah sure they already have this one, so they dont have to pay no outside company to use it, but its so old and obsolete in my opinion. I mean they have a hard time implementing anything better then dx9 on it... in 2016 they should of already be on top of this... Like i said, i dont know if they have anything in the works for a new game or something, but ats cannot be their bet for the next 4 years, i just cannot see me playing it for then next 2 3 years like i did with ets2. Its not yet a full month and i am already bored with it, i think its just a way for them to juice out what ever is left from this engine, knowing that they need major improvements to be at present time... Or who knows maybe they will migrate to the Fremium area, as others companys did and are making a living. Online Fremium games dont require major quality as the games are "free" to play.

    2. Unless they fix the maps and time scaling on ATS, it will never be anything but lacking. I can't even be bothered to play it already, and even if they had the entire US released, if it's on the current scale, then I for one am not interested.

    3. Ok what will be different if the game have all 51 states?
      Practically nothing, besides transporting from A to B point within 5 minutes with 30 mph

    4. For me, one... it is not... ATS just looks like a map expansion for ets2 overpopulated with assets from SCandinavia dlc... Its just looks rushed to me, i dont know why, they have been working at it for such a long time, and dont get me started on the time compression that is beyond annoying !

  59. Steam workshop... that is your biggest concern now ??? Get a move on and fix ATS the game you just released, plenty of bugs and irregularities there... California looks like shat, you crammed a lot of details in the cities to make them "look more realistic" but most of them they dont even make any sense, just there to fill the screen and then you go and make stupid high ways with changing speed limits every 2min of driving from 65 to 35 then to 55 and so on, making driving stressful rather then relaxing so much so that i rather drive the trucks and trailers from ATS in ETS2. I remember someone saying here on this blog, that you should stop making the game for your selfs and more for those who play it and listen to them... My impression after playing for a while now ATS, California crammed carbon copy of Scandinavia dlc( i this the people who where put in charge with creating the map did it while intoxicated or something), Nevada just copied from California but ofcourse with less crammed details everywhere... ATS not only look rushed and unfinished but also flawed, thus the reason of releasing the quick patch for enabling disabling police, after so many people complain about it. I dont need to turn features off in your games SCS in need you to incorporate them properly in the game. I guess someone came with the idea, hey why we dont use the speed cameras in ets2 and put them on ai cars and then have speed limits changing every mile... WHY? u was afraid people will not notice it if you dint have spawn 200 police cars while driving for 30min ??? Or maybe u was so desperate to make the game look different the ets2 so in lack of ideas u just spam the dumb ones excessively ???

    For me, driving in ats feels like driving in a virtual city and not around 2 states. ATS is just wrong it is not a evolution from ets2, its just resources that should of went in creating some map dlc for ets2 where put in ats just so you can make more money, because its easier to sell a crappy dlc as a brand new game then push it on a 3 yeard old title...

    ANd SCS When are you going to fix the hovering ai cars in ATS ??? Did i get it wrong??? is this game set somewhat in future with flying cars ??? This has been present in ets2 aswell for a very long time but there its not so persistent and obvious as in ats... When??? WHEn ???
    When are you going to fix the bug at the roundabout at the entrance in Stockholm with the ai cars disappearing midway in the turn ???? is that also a feature??? has Stockholm in ets2 has been visited by aliens that left behind a crack between worlds, making the ai cars travel in another dimension ???
    Totally disappointed with ats, i would of gladly spent my money for some ets2 dlc then this shat.

    SERIOUSLY !?!? Is this the trucking game you are planing to sell for the next 4 years ???

    1. I dont think they care much for casual players to be honest, it doesnt look that way to me. They are encouraging and promoting modding for their games, they are making long term commitment for dlc's and what not. I think they rely most on dedicated players, those who play the game daily, those who want new content every month those who are looking for fresh and new stuff on the modding sites to make their game better... Somebody who plays the game casual once a week or once or twice in a month its not going to spend money for dlc's with maps, paint jobs and other trinkets.. The vanilla map and free content from the patches is enough.
      Mind you, that most of the people who bought ats when it came out, where hard line ets2 players, same players that SCS is relying on to sell dlc's in the future, because i dont think that this years sales for ats will be enough to keep them fed for the next 4 years..

    2. I honestly think SCS didn't think much about ETS 2 for casual players. Me, as a Promods supporter, USED to just play ETS 2 without mods. The base game was so boring. And, it seems SCS doesn't really care for people who dont have enough money to afford Scandinavia. When I drive on the motorway from Germany to Denmark, it's like 2 worlds divided at a border. And it can be pretty offensive to certain people that live in Germany. *Not that I do, but I can see how offensive it can be.* I think ATS is a bit more focused on casual players because they put more work/efforts into the little small details in the game. Including SCS giving us 2 free states (1 is coming soon) after we buy the game. ETS 2's base map/Going east DLC was bland/mostly the same things in each city. Scandinavia was a good idea, but the looks of it screws over the rest of the game. And, to be honest with the paint DLCs, I think those are bullcrap. If I wanted a paint job like SCSs, i'd get one from mods, or make my own. But to pay money for just a paintjob or paintjob pack just draws me away from even buying those things.



      The France DLC should be a game update for all of us. Especially casual players who dont use mods. The ETS 2 base map is so old and outdated, we deserve a entirely FREE rebuild of the ETS 2 base map.


      SCS, I love ATS and such, but...You need to get our wallets in a better way. Because making us pay for a rebuild of a country that was made horribly and then rebuilding it to make us pay even more money just to play a rebuild of it is unfair to players who dont use mods. Not saying that I am one of those people, but it's unfair to have us pay for a rebuild of a country that YOU guys made with no effort.

      Please, SCS. Overview how you will get our support.


      Because when you lose it, you lose it forever.

    3. I think you are missing the jist of it all... Yes ETS2 without mods is very boring, but what do you expect from a game that came out more then 3 years ago ? and do not forget that ETS2 came from ETS that was released 8 years ago and thus the mods... Bceause of SCS inability or laziness, they have relied to much on the modding community for their games as you can see they are taking very long time to release new content...
      Scandinavia of course was to look different, it came out after 3 years the original game, and another thing ets2 came out with 32bit support so after they have tweeked the engine and got 64bit support for it that they could do more with it, but again the dx9 renderer does show its age and doesnt look to be able to take much more on it, so yeah Scandinavia looks different because it came out in a time when the game engine and the computers that people are playing on can do more. Not that ets2 is this next gen game that demands huge amounts of resources... It is not, the game engine it is not of this times, it is old and obsolete, it needs new renderer it needs better coding to make use of the machines resources, so thats why a new engine imo would be useful for scs to make a trucking game.

      ATS it is not focused on anyone, it is just another way for scs to milk us for some money from an old and obsolete engine, that is all... Ats is just a carbon copy of scandinavia dlc, ats should of never came out in this form imo, the scale of the map its just ridiculous and doesnt bring any new things to the table, other then a new map and 3 new trucks. And for those that uphold the police in this game as a new feature, i say you are twats, because the police it is nothing more then speed cameras set on ai cars thats it, its not a new feature its nothing same like the weighing station. At least in ets2 the toll booth u was paying money so in way had purpose but the WS what porpose does it have in ats ???
      As for the "2 free states" that you are talking about... Are you SERIOUS ??? Imagine ats came out with CAlifornia alone ? how would that been ? People where pissed even before the release date was announced, from the 1st rumours that ats will come out with california alone, nobody knowing the scale of it all so they added Nevada only to release after you bought the game that it doesnt even match a ets2 dlc in size, and now to be told that Arizona will come out in a couple of months... gets you thinking what has been scs doing for the last 2 years and at this pace when are they going to have all of us even at this tiny scale ???

      About the France dlc, i agree with you there, map rebuild should come as free update and payable DLC's should include only new area and not rebuilds of the old map. I mean come on, there is people doing maps on their own out there, scs staff should be able to produce good quality dlc content for us to pay money in no time..

    1. Due to ETS 2/ATS not having sound cloud, you should've used Winrar and archived your profile so that you'd still have a backup of your old profile. Sorry to hear that you lost your save.

  63. So my question is if this going to go through will we be able to use them on multiplayer such as lights (fog lights, beacons, and driving light markers), the filter with the lights on both sides, rear fenders, and underglow? stuff that we can add to our trucks to make them our own and unique. Sometimes we want our truck to stick out from the one next to us. And this is exactly how the drivers here in U.S.A. are about their trucks. Your vehicle (18 wheeler, motorcycle, car, or pick-up) is an extension of who you are. It's not just a mode of transportation but a part of your body. Even in a game. We would like the the ability to express ourselves more. so this could be great but could hurt us in the long run.

  65. Well I have to say I'm done with SCS now...I've long been a bit bored with ETS2, hence the reason I so looked forward to ATS, and like so many are bitterly disappointed by the 'new' game.

    SCS need to look at what Dovetail Games have done with Train Simulator 2016, and see what they could have done with ATS, rather than putting a new skin on an old game, and reducing the map size and time scaling to such a ridiculous scale.

    I'm not into trains, but just looking at Train Sim 2016, ATS could have been something very similar but obviously with trucks...all the evidence shows that SCS are lazy, uninspired, and must indeed be bored with their own product, hoping the modders will do their work for them and make the game better.

    I definitely had more than my money's worth out of ETS2, but I'll never consider I've had my £14.99's worth out of ATS...just a waste of money, and undoubtedly the reason they waited until after so many of us had eagerly bought it BEFORE they released the free demo. If they'd released that demo first, I for one would never have wasted my £14.99, and I suspect there are many thousands who also would have given it a miss.

    One thing I do hope is this...that the other truck manufacturers NEVER give them the licenses they want for other trucks, they simply don't deserve it. I think it's unlikely that they will get anyone other than PACCAR owned Kenworth and Peterbilt anyway, and I think any company would be mad to allow their official brand to be used on such an amateur and out of date product.

    Dovetail Games, PLEASE MAKE A TRUCK SIM TO RIVAL SCS's RUBBISH.!

    3. Not any longer I'm not. I've never been so disappointed after such a long wait, it's pathetic what they've sold us.

  69. As allways , many answers has nothing to see with the subject...
    So getting back on it, the workshop is really good news: automatic update for mods(when an update exist of course), rating for the mods, and that s maybe the best thing, most of mods websites are making their best to classify the mods, but there is no way to exclude garbage from jewelry, and sadly there is more garbage than jewelry. the workshop should resolve it a little bit(thx god no more 2500hp engine on each page XD)
    I am also curious to see what will be the situation about the thousands of reedited mods, i am bored of seeing mods presenting a new truck in fact beeing just an old mod with one sii.file modified...
    Reedit a mod to make it better or correct something wrong but once more there is too much garbage the tons of reedit.
    I am impatient to see the result of this new "tool"


    PS: dont have any profile here, for the ones wondering, i am fredbull02 on scs forum ;-)

  72. We are working now on update 1.23 for ETS2, and 1.2 for ATS. does that even make any sense? By your numbering system for patches it makes no sense what so ever! We are on 1.22, but ATS is not even going to go through 1.1 -1.9?? whilst it makes no difference of course, as someone who plays a lot of ETS 2 and thinking of buying ATS when there is actual content to play!, then the the patching system number is going to throw me side ways because of the way your patching for ETS 2... and while it is welcome your doing updates still, you priorities are shocking bad. I really doubt anyone remotely cares about silly tire customizations, when you could be throwing dynamic accumulating snow into ETS2 something many many people have been asking for , for a very long time. How about completing the dlc for going North and Going East? You have basically given us half completed dlc and charged a ridiculous amount for the lack of map!

    It would be nice to see accumulating snow on the roads, with gritters and snow ploughs trying to get rid of the snow, as the snow keeps falling. That cannot be beyond your skills! In autumn, the leaves fall off, different parts of europe go dark at different times, like you worked out, with sun rise patch you created! Please give us the dynamic weather mod! It's hardly realistic driving in nothing but rain all the time..it would be awesome with the snow the gritters and the snow ploughs trying to get rid of snow from the road, as more snow continues to fall...i mean think of the challenge for us drivers, and think of the profit you'd make with more sales!
