Beta: Euro Truck Simulator 2 update 1.16 - Going 64-bit!



Update highlights:
  • 64-bit version of the game is now available via Steam launcher
    Large truck dealers have been updated to match the new style of dealerships
  • The focus of the upcoming official 1.16 game update is to ship engine changes and other behind the scenes elements in preparation for our big future content updates.

The focus of the upcoming official 1.16 game update is to ship engine changes and other behind the scenes elements in preparation for our big future content updates.

64-bit version of the game is currently accessible in beta on Steam, it will be available as a regular game update for all users soon.

Full update notes can be found in Steam discussions.

We have prepared a short set of questions and answers about this change:

How will 64-bit executable affect your game?

64-bit executable is a purely under-the-hood technical change and should have no negative effect on how your game ecosystem works - all your saves, modifications, trucks, and input methods will work just as they used to before.

Why are you releasing the 64-bit executable?

Memory footprint of our game has been increasing over time with our expanding game world, new features and countless modifications for the players to choose from. The 64-bit executable will allow the game to access the entire physical memory of your computer and avoid out-of-memory crashes related to 32-bit memory limitations. Most modern PCs these days ship with considerably more memory, often 6-8 GB or more, and this memory could not be used with a 32-bit binary, where the limit was only 4 GB or even 2 GB in case of 32-bit systems. The 32-bit game has been essentially starving for memory while several spare gigs of memory were idling in the operating system.

What are the benefits of this change?

Using the new executable should alleviate memory related issues you may have experienced in the past - many users have already reported problems with memory limitations after installing large collections of modifications. Even for a game with no mods installed, with more textures and 3D assets cached in memory, the framerate should stay more stable during long play sessions.

Map creators will have a smoother experience in the map editor as you'll have way more memory at your disposal.

I have a 32-bit OS. Can I somehow use the 64-bit executable?

Unfortunately not - 64-bit executable can only be used on 64-bit operating system. If you are serious about playing ETS2 extensively, we highly recommend you to consider upgrading your 32-bit operating system to 64-bit version at this point.

Are you planning to keep supporting 32-bit executable after this update?

Yes. We are are not dropping it suddenly, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the game will be maintained and kept in sync for a considerable period of time. We've actually included several engine changes into 1.16 that are focused on improving memory management also for the 32-bit version so that all of our users can enjoy Euro Truck Simulator 2.



The 1.16 update also features minor map changes as we continue to update truck dealer locations to match the dealership revamp we have shipped in our previous update. Please note that this change may affect game modifications, so if you are experiencing crashes first try disabling any map modifications you have installed.



Everybody loves new stuff and we are aware that our fans are impatiently waiting for the release of the goodies that we have been covering on this blog. Admittedly, from this point of view ETS2 1.16 doesn't bring much to the table. This update mostly serves as a wide-scale stress-test for the new tech to come. Meanwhile though, our ETS2 mapping team is putting finishing touches to DLC Scandinavia, while the vehicle team is doing solid progress on the long-awaited Mercedes-Benz New Actros truck model. Cool stuff is on the way! We cannot yet predict which will come out first, but both teams are racing each other to finish their task as soon as possible. And that's just Euro Truck 2, and you know that's not the only project we are working on.

How can I join the beta?
  • Right-click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 in your Steam library and select properties.
  • Switch to the BETAS tab.
  • Select public_beta in the dropdown.

Holiday Event Round Up and Peek into Sweden

It looks like Euro Truck Simulator 2 was played a lot during the festive season. Over 34,000 people managed to complete our Holiday Event! We are astounded by such activity and eager to provide more cool stuff on World of Trucks in 2015.

Holiday Event will come to an end on Wednesday, January 14th, 2015. If you are still in progress of trying to earn your exclusive Raven Truck Design DLC by completing it - hurry up!

http://steamcommunity.com/games/227300/announcements/detail/127555528264845438

Another good news is that DLC Scandinavia is in the final production stages now. We sure still need to test it properly, tweak it, and optimize it - with such a big project that's a ton of work on its own - but we have considerably better testing capacity and process available to us now compared to previous project releases. Let's hope all will go smoothly.

Let us show you some screenshots around the Swedish city of Kalmar:

“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.”

This game is meditation, the thought-cleansing effect of driving a thousand kilometres along the highway cannot be understated. Occasionally poor AI choices behind the wheel may spike your blood pressure but overwhelmingly ETS2 is a relaxing thing to stick on after a rough day. And if that's not enough you can just drive into oncoming traffic in your indestructible death machine.

An alternate title for this game could be "Zen and the Art of Logistics".

My girlfriend didn't get why I loved this game.

Said I was a loser and a weirdo.

So I built my transport company into a million dollar empire just to show her what I'm capable of.

I haven't heard from her for a while.

Top-notch truck driving simulator. With support for TrackIR, wheels and pedals, this game has become a gem of the simulation genre.

Before having tried it, it's hard to see why this game will be so addicting. I suspect much of that feeling comes from the progression from a lowly truck driver not even owning a truck to a multi-country Logistics company owning a hundred trucks and employing as many drivers.

You "level up" various skills which improve the rewards you get from certain types of deliveries or open up more jobs such as longer distances or different categories of dangerous cargo.

Driving the trucks is a pleasure. It's surprisingly therapeutic driving from city to city, obeying the road rules rather than smashing things up like a madman. That said, if you disable the speed-limiter in options (90kph) you can get a bit crazy, getting as high as 150kph+ on some routes, a bit of a thrill considering the cargo you have in tow! Speed cameras will become your enemy though.

Unfortunately the AI of the other traffic can at times frustrate. In some instances such as in underpasses under freeways you can find intersections where the cars always fail to give way, probably because the intersection was not programmed correctly. Don't get me started on the kamikaze AI at roundabouts either.

In any case, this is the most fun you can have driving a truck in a game. Having a controller or steering wheel would be highly recommended, and if you have head-tracking equipment it's icing on the cake.

Much like my sentiments of Farming Simulator 2013, I fell in love with Euro Truck Simulator 2 and I have no idea why. Mundane job simulators are overwhelmingly garbage, but a select few (including ETS2) are surprisingly compelling.
There is no way I can think of to describe this game without sounding terribly drab. You’re a truck driver, and are starting your own shipping company. You have to drive according to the law, take rest breaks, buy fuel, pay for upkeep. There is nothing on paper that should be exceptional about this game, yet for what it is, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is disturbingly enjoyable. I recommend everyone to give it a try.

After 7 hours playing this game, i was about ready to give up my career as a European Truck Simulator 2.

But then something magical happened.
I inadvertently pressed the 'R' key whilst driving, and discovered radio.

Radio Gothic from the Czech Republic saved me.
Blaring songs about god knows what in some bork bork language reinvigorated my will to drive trucks in Europe.

Thank you based Radio Gothic/10

When I first saw it, I thought, "How could driving a truck around Europe be fun?"

Now, driving that beautiful truck around Europe is one of the things I look forward to doing everyday.

At I laughed, I mocked the virtual truckers. I mean, who wants to sit around and drive a virtual truck? me
Now however, I laugh, and mock those who don't sit around and drive a virtual truck. Get it, and be sucked into a never ending obsession of delivering cargo all over Europe.

An owned truck means more freedom, with higher-paying jobs that require more responsibility. The ultimate objective is for players to manage the operation of their own cargo business and additional tasks such as hiring employees and purchasing more garages and trucks.
Euro Truck Sim 2 provides some RPG elements to keep the game interesting. Jobs earn experience, skill points lead. Skill points can be spent to upgrade their own knowledge in certain types of jobs are. Development of new types of cargo and spending on fuel efficiency. Improving personal skills and the creation of an enterprise of a solitary driver to a whole fleet.

The game world is absolutely massive in scope. From scenic landscapes to curved tunnel through rock hill, go to your truck and from any destination is always an opportunity to see more of the many countries present. From the shape of the traffic lights to the atmosphere of the backdrops, there's a sense of individuality to each new territory you uncover, and the trucks themselves are lovingly recreated with an intricate level of detail.

The game combines a realistic trucking experience with rewarding and most importantly, entertaining gameplay. Both novice player and simulation lovers will appreciate the massive game world to explore, never-ending supply of freight trips claim to manage business tasks, customize trucks and gaining work experience. One of the finest and freshest trucker simulation game.

Score: 81 / 100

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Review!

Well where to Start with this game!

I've played this game since day one, even before it hit the steam release with over 1000 hours. The game itself unmodded provides great entertainment if you enjoy to just relax at your computer and just drive. If you're wanting a great simulation aspect, this game can deliver on many levels and provide simulation like the real thing!

Speaking of modding, this game provides a massive range of modding features to improve and drastically extend your gameplay, I personally play a modded game most of the time, as I've expereince most of the game and what it offers in the unmodded version, but to this day mods still make the game very fresh and new to play!

Overall I would recommend this game to anyone that enjoys driving games, with a very open aspect to modding. The graphics are beautiful and are very eye appealing, but another good thing is that the specs aren't too high to play the game!

I, I have never had this much fun in months.
I got this game today and i just HAD to write a review.
Day 1- Mom said go find a job.
Found an AD for a truck driver job.
Called got the Job. Got paid 3,000 euros the first day.

Day 2- Woke up thinking "why should i get paid half and work using a company's truck".
Went to work as usual and got paid 3,000. Commited lots of driving law infringements. Ended up getting a call from the bank that i am in debt and that i have negative funds in my accounts. (They were nice enough to give me funds to sort things out).

Day 3- Said "Screw it, i'm buying my own truck"
Went to the bank, got a 100,000 Euros loan (Thanks Merkel) and bought a volvo (Should change license plate to Diretide soon).
Now i make 8,000 euros a day. I still sleep inside a truck tho (Don't worry it's warm).

What's next? Well i will probably save 180,000 euros to buy a garage and hire some employees and hit the road daily as usual. Life on the road never ends.

Thank for everyone at SCS Software who worked on this.
10/10 Game totally recommended!
