Getting ready for ETS2 1.13 Update

August 21st, 2014

Euro Truck Simulator 2 version 1.13 is entering finalization for release - and this time it is all about Achievements!

As you may have noticed from our blog posts jumping from topic to topic between different projects and sub-projects, the team at SCS Software is actually a swarm of quite a number of micro-teams developing various new features to grow the truck simulator ecosystem. Some things take longer to develop, with some we may even be notoriously slow, but we believe that our approach is right to achieve our ultimate goals eventually, and we hope that you are having fun being along for the ride. Achievements is one little step among many for us to help us in testing the necessary improvements in our infrastructure towards game data persistence.

So, achievements. Actually, at this stage we are preparing two different sets of achievements for you:

  1. Steam Achievements
  2. World of Trucks Achievements


Steam achievements were much requested by our Steam player community. Thankfully, the native integrated Steam achievement system made it reasonably simple to implement, certainly compared to us having to roll our own superstructure on top of in-game achievement tracking.

On the other hand, the initial set of World of Trucks achievements is a turning point in setting up the the back-end codebase for extensive future updates. WoTr updates are sure promising to be interesting and we'll talk about them in the future...



We understand that at this stage of the life cycle, with many players having sunk tens or even hundreds of hours into the game, some achievements might be, shall we say - not timely. You might even think that you have tried everything the game has in store for you...

So with that in mind and with help of Steam community, we have compiled a list of ETS2 achievements with a very seasoned player in mind. You can think of some of the more difficult ones as little quests or challenges for you to undertake in the game. Still there are achievements that are very easy, we still have new players coming aboard having just bought the game, and we want them to get some satisfaction quickly. Experienced player can take them for granted already.

It was not our goal to make anyone suffer pursuing our achievements, as it sometimes the case with games; forcing players to grind. Almost all our achievements are within the reach of average player given enough dedication.



Let's have a peek at the current ETS2 Steam achievements in more detail:

Total Achievement Count: 28
  • Easy - 8 - pretty much everyone would achieve those and so quickly notice the achievement feature, that's how easy it is ;)
  • Medium - 8 - not all achievements get unlocked quickly, but none of those should be a problem for any user
  • Hard - 11 - certain degree of patience and dedication is required to track and complete those. However the truckers are patient people and we have all confidence in them.
  • Extreme - 1 - thats for the most hardcore, never to give up types that drive through the world of Euro Truck Simulator 2

In the future we might add more interesting achievements, of course also shaped for a seasoned user or related to some particular expansion with fresh content. So if you wish to contribute an idea, we'd be glad to hear it in comments.

According to our internal plans, we are aiming at the September time-frame for release. Stay tuned!

The New DAF XF Euro 6 tease images

August 18th, 2014

Greetings!

One of the trucks that you have been so anxiously anticipating is finally getting close to completion... Rest assured we are pushing hard to make sure you'll get it as soon as possible.



Trucks happen to be the most notoriously difficult type of 3D model to build and implement for our games than any other of our assets. We are always thinking about ways to speed up their delivery to you, but there was not a single case where it would take us less than half a year to implement a new truck. How can we speed this up? We are now looking into more advanced 3D scanning technologies to acquire high-detail reference data. We are also discussing internally if we should not try shipping an initial release of a truck with limited amount of cabins, chassis and upgrade variations. Would it make sense for you?

Anyway that won't be the case with The New DAF XF Euro 6 - it is coming with traditional palette of cabin, chassis selection, and other upgrade options.



Even if trucks are eating considerable amount of company human and financial resources, we still resist the temptation to ask for money for the upcoming Euro Truck Simulator 2 standard truck models and will continue bringing them to you free of charge in future updates of the game. We feel that it's fair to ask for support from time to time with additional optional elements for the game, but the core experience is improved for everybody.



Thanks for your patience. Currently the new DAF is about ready for final testing iterations, we are targeting its release for the second half of September.

“With its stellar gameplay and presentation, Euro Truck Simulator 2 set a new standard for the simulation genre.”
95/100 – Gaming Nexus

“There are titles in the simulation market which can be sold on the novelty factor alone, but tend to be disappointing games. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is not one of them, it is strangely cathartic, engaging and relaxing.”

ETS2 can be pretty much whatever you want. Mod it to turn it into a hardcore trucking sim, or leave it as-is and use it as "Peaceful Meditation Simulator". Kinda hard to go wrong with a purchase of this, it's far more accessible to newbies of the genre than most other games, and runs great too. Drive while listening to the in-game radio which is packed with stations from all over Europe and parts of the US, or play your own tracks. Use driving aids like mirrors and GPS on the HUD, or use the mirrors on the truck and the GPS in the dash - it's up to you. 400+ hours in, and I have no plans of stopping anytime soon - with the vast quantities of free truck, trailer, weather, and map mods out there, I've nowhere near seen the end of it.

ETS2 plus the Going East dlc and the truck paint packs are some of the best money you'll ever spend on Steam, IMO.

Are you ♥♥♥♥ing kidding me, This game puts any other simulator to shame. You're talking 24 hour long transportation of the finest ♥♥♥♥ing IKEA furniture, Running them what seem to be green lights but in Euro they're yellow or some ♥♥♥♥ like that who knows, not you, you're too busy driving 60 tons of Soviet Russia's finest Vodka and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s, who cares what a light means.

When you're all alone on the highway is the best time, turn off the heallights and let the magic happen, some of that crocodil cocaine will keep you pumping through the fear as you barrel down the autobahn in reverse with kilos of petroleum and wooden dutch shoes in tow.

When you make it to that destination though, and you back up that fat trailer ♥♥♥ and just dump your load all over the parking lot of some Wal-Mart in Norway, the satisfation you get when at least 10% of your cargo is still intact makes you a god amongst other mobile mortals. A King of the Transportation Ring. Europeans Finest.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 puts you in the shoes of a.................. truck driver. You start out as any regular bloke being a hired driver and delivering various things with a given truck.

After a few jobs you have the option to get a loan from the bank to buy your very own truck. This is where the game truly opens. With your own truck you can drive around anywhere in the map and explore it as you please. Jobs give a higher pay so you can profit something while also paying off your debt. After some jobs the bank will offer you another loan, so you can start your very own trucking company. You use that money to buy a few trucks and hire drivers to work for you.

There is no objective in the game, you're free to do anything, but you could say the objective is to have the biggest trucking empire.

The game does a very good job at keeping you driving, if you don't pay off your debts, it's game over, but that's not all. You need more experience levels to be able to customize your truck to the max and also acquire better trucks.

There many trucks in this game. Iveco, Scania, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, MAN and Renault; all with different models and configurations.

The world extends from Aberdeen to Budapest, but there are mods that expands the map even more, such as TSM, which will open up parts of Italy, France, Spain and Northern Africa. Or the Scandinavia Promod, it opens up Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

This game will probably never die all thanks to the modding community who make mods and the players who play them and the developers who never stop developing.

-First Day Reviews-

*Using G27 Steering Wheel*

Journal Entry 1

Its my first day running my new company "Marauder Trucking" I took out a huge loan from the bank scored myself a sick looking Volvo truck, im ready for action.

Journal Entry 2

I'm new to driving a vehicle with this many gears and new to shifting manually with a clutch but I think I got it under control.... then I back up straight into the side of a small van... so no im not under control.... I've now damaged my truck to 8% and cost myself a pretty penny for the accident..... But hey we all gotta learn sometime right?

Journal Entry 3

After driving around my small property parking lot and learning my gears I decide to venture to the populated streets! I backup (this time checking my mirrors) and carefully pull onto the street. I'm now happily driving among the traffic of Europe! The drivers a slow and waiting at lights is a pain in the rear...but... alas this is my life now ...

Journal Entry 4

I have picked a mission to haul a load of heavy machinery across the countryside. I drive to my location, which happens to be a nice little farm with very tight corners and fences. I see my load waiting between two other loaded trailers, this looks like a tight fit. I attempted backing up several times not getting it right, I'm sure the farmer and his wife were either giggling inside their house or regretting not hiring a better driver. I finally get latched on and give a sigh of relief, I pull out of the space and very gently make my turns while trying not to stall out. Although its tight maneuvering I am able to escape Vincent's Smoked Meats!

Journal Entry 5

Now on the road I get to enjoy the beautiful countryside and shake my fist at the slow and dangerous drivers around me.... it begins to get a bit darker and a light rain starts, I almost drive my truck off the road twice trying to turn on my headlights and windshield wipers but were all good. I'm now cruising down the road at a gentle 70 and things are good....uh oh.....I can see a line of cars piling up behind me so I better pick up the pace... This was a poor decision on my part...

Journal Entry 6

Now thinking back... in the best interest of other drivers I should have just stayed the speed I was going.... but I did not. I got far to generous with the gas pedal and shifting, ended up pumping my truck up to around 120. This speed was great, I was making good time, I didn't have a line of cars behind me.... but I didn't account for sharp corners in my equation. I came whipping up to a corner thinking... ok ill just tap the brakes and slow down a bit.... well its wet on the road.... its a sharp corner... I got it down to about 98 when i hit the corner and suddenly my world started to become slightly off center...

Journal Entry 7

Now that my truck is laying on its side I've learned a key element about gear reduction to control speed as well as "when to" and "when not to" apply the brakes. I had missed my corner by lots...I had not taken into account the grade % of the road and I rolled it and slid for a long distance... it was quite scary......After my truck is up righted from the long skid on its side im now looking at 72% damage, the truck sounds like a blender full of ball bearings and the lights flicker.... that's totally normal right? ...

Journal Entry 8

Ok the truck sounds terrible but it still drives... Its got horrible turning now and 3 of my gears are non existent... I'm still about 2 (game hours) away from my destination. I am able to drive for about 45 mins before the truck really starts to have...issues... I was driving along at my new cautious speed of 50 and suddenly my truck turns off.... great no power steering so my wheel locks up and its like trying to steer a dead whale with a pool cue....not working well.... but I'm able to get it to the side of the road safely.

Journal Entry 9

I am able to start the truck again and drive another while before it turns off again. I'm now only 20 mins away from my destination and im not giving up... if its the last thing I do im getting this load to its destination. I've now cranked this thing over enough times that I could probably forge a blade on the starter.... but luck has it that the final stretch into town is all down hill....yay!..... throw it in neutral and coast into the city... I blast my horn and coast powerlessly through red lights, dodging traffic and jumping curves. I look like a boat without a crew heading directly for the shore.

Journal Entry 10

I can see the building! I'm almost there! .. I'm coasting much much slower now that the terrain has leveled out, The truck won't even start now its toast, im about 30 feet from the buildings entrance and moving at a speed of about 5-7... Old ladies with walkers are getting better torque ratios then my truck. I finally land right next to the door, Unable to start the truck im not going to be able to back it in manually so we will take a gimme on this load.... this may be bad for my business but I can personally suggest you don't hire anyone from "Marauder Trucking"

9/10

Upon a winter's night quite cold
I loaded up a game Steam sold
The trucking sim of much acclaim
While thinking, “what a stupid game.”

At first I tried to play my way
By squishing peds and bringing pain
“Where are the cops?” I asked myself
Trying to earn my place in Hell.

But time went on I grew bored
I'd do one run and then ignore
This game that they’d called 'Comfy Truck'
And then move on without a-

BUT WAIT! I'm almost out of time!
Just have some faith, I'll cross that line!
But time was past and pay was docked
My world was shattered, faith was rocked.

“Well just one more.” I grumbled low
I loaded up and hit the road
"I've got it now." as off I went
Soon to delete local content.

Passed peaceful pastures in the night
I saw a sunrise blinding bright
I guess this game's not all that bad
Though not the best I've ever had.

Pop playing on the radio
In harmony with my Volvo
This siren sought to bring me sleep
While consciousness I fought to keep.

I showed up, docked and dropped my charge
At a nondescriptive harbor yard
“Just one more time,” said my girlfriend
“Tomorrow you can play again.”

But no, I knew I couldn't stop
The needs of commerce never drop
If it be chemicals or steel
I had to keep turning those wheels.

So down the road I charged once more
Through France, Poland and Luxembourg
And soon a thought occurred to me
Could this be what they call ‘comfy’?

If slow and peaceful is your aim
You'll not do better than this game
Now just real quick here's a rundown
So you’re running when you hit the ground.

You move cargo from A to B
I'd recommend quite hastily
If you do well and earn your pay
Then manage other drivers days.

And so with that ends my review
I hope maybe you’ll try it too
In here you'll find no gun or knife
But I enjoy the trucking life.
