1.14 update news and across the desert in American Truck Simulator

Euro Truck Simulator 2 team is working hard on finalizing of ETS2 1.14 update. Stabilization of this large update had been our focus for several weeks already.

The development team's long-term assignment is very challenging. We are not just "patching" the game with bug fixes two full years after its release. We are committed to bringing you significant improvements every couple of months. That's why we prefer to call new game version releases "updates" rather than "patches".

For every update release, we need to hit a moment in time when we have a stable and as much as possible bug-free combination of game data and source code. Our team may work on 10+ major features in parallel, yet for a given game update we usually decide that just two or three of them are already mature enough for publishing. The rest needs to stay hidden from public eyes until it's ready. However, the priorities of finalizing, bug fixing, and polishing of the particular features picked for an update and working on "future stuff" in parallel are quite contradictory and really hard to follow at the same time and within the same asset database and game source code. To release an update, ideally everything should be in the "freeze" mode to minimize the danger of introducing new bugs. But "freeze" is the enemy of progress - we cannot stop working on "future stuff" for too long if we want to see good progress on major features or optimizations that often require half a year or more of dedicated time.

We still haven't found an ideal solution to this problem of trying to focus both on short term incremental improvements and on long term "big picture" evolution. It may be frustrating for the dev team at times, and it may also be frustrating for you, the players, as you have to wait longer for game updates. But we are doing what we can, and we hope that the string of future updates and releases coming from SCS Software's labs will justify a little bit of frustration. ;)

So anyway, we feel that we are very close to releasing the public beta of 1.14 update for ETS2! We will do it with the help of Steam's back-end just as during the previous public betas. The feedback loop from a public beta is really very useful in the final stages before an official release. We'd rather not promise any particular release dates, but the ambition is "days" rather than "weeks".

In case you have missed the new ETS2 update 1.14 features we had mentioned here in the announcements earlier, they include tag-lift truck axles and finally the new DAF Euro 6 truck.

Meanwhile, the American Truck Simulator team is never ceasing to work. There is grumbling that we don't pay enough attention to their project in the announcements. So let us wrap up the long and heavy rant post with a couple of screenshots of American desert setting from American Truck Simulator to cheer you up on the weekend...

Scandinavia - Going above and beyond...

Map production of ETS2 Scandinavia add-on is in the final stages. That's not to say it is completed, there is a lot of testing, tuning, and optimizing ahead of us. You should be aware that with the scale of the add-on, it will take months of polishing before we can consider our work ready for release.



Our map design team is taking great pains to get the feeling of the region right and to make the Scandinavian cities and environments as they are in real life.



Even though our programmers keep improving our tool chain for better efficiency, such detailed environments are harder and take longer to build than what we were used to only 2-3 years ago.





Of course not every part of the map can be made true-to-life based on a real location, but we sprinkle the world with such locations generously. Our hope is that such attention to detail will boost the fun with exploration of the world, especially for our players in Scandinavia who know these places very well.



Meanwhile, the quest to offer dedicated paint liveries for truckers in the countries where our game sells the best continues today, with the release of French Paint Job Pack DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Steam. Check it out!

85/100 – PC Gamer

“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.”

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.

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.

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.
