Set your GPS's! ETS2 Update 1.20 Open Beta

We are happy to announce that open beta of 1.20 Update of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is now available on Steam.

There are a ton of minor improvements and fixes included as usual, you can see them listed in the change log at the bottom of the blog post, but let us elaborate on three major features that we would like to bring to your attention:

1. GPS ROUTE CUSTOMIZATION



From now on you will be able to customize the route set by the Route Advisor, or create your own route at will if no job had been taken. Route configuration is performed on the map screen. You can modify the existing route by
  • adding up to 10 custom waypoints;
  • inserting waypoints into existing route;
  • interactively moving waypoints;
  • or adding waypoints at end of a route.
We hope that you will appreciate the flexibility and simplicity of the system, as you can really now create any route you desire.

2. GEOGRAPHICALLY CORRECT SUN POSITION



We have received plenty of feedback from our fans in Scandinavia territories that we have the same daylight and night periods in the game as in southern Europe. Well, not any more!

To address the problem, we have written new code that positions the sun at the exact astronomically correct place in the sky as you would expect for the given geographical location at the particular time of day. In fact the definitions driving the whole system allow now to set up any location on the globe if anyone would so desire. The new system produces quite different feel of the day cycle depending on whether you in the north or closer to the equatorial. The sun is higher on the sky at noon in the south than we had it hard-coded before - with appropriately quicker sunrise and sundown - while in the north the sun is correctly following a lower curve in the sky with prolonged evenings and mornings; lingering low at the horizon. We had to adjust our weather profiles and sky textures to correspond to physical sun location (mod makers beware!).

3. IMAGE SPOTLIGHT



We see so many fantastic community-created screenshots on World of Trucks website uploaded every day, with inspiring content that is leaving us speechless. We felt that these images are so cool that more people should see them, not just regular visitors of the site.

We are introducing a new feature - "Image Spotlight." Hand-picked selection of images from World of Trucks will now be made available to the game as additional loading splash-screens. The first batch is there now, we plan to update and refresh the selection from time to time with newly coming images. You can browse the current selection inside the Image Spotlight screen, accessible from the Photo Studio screen, if you want to drill deeper and see the original image in full detail.

For this feature to work, you will have to enable it at the game start. We did not want to unleash it at everyone automatically, as the images are downloaded from our server (however just once), and not everybody is comfortable with applications accessing network without their consent.



In general, the images had been and will be picked from Editor's Pick from World of Trucks, but that's not necessary a must for the selection in the future. Although there's a huge amount of quality images there, not all of them can go into Image Spotlight for various reasons. For example we have to avoid featuring real brands in the game for which we do not have an explicit licence signed. Also, sometimes even a gorgeous image didn't fit into the aspect of the loading screen for proper composition needs.

The code is set to randomly choose between loading screens of the original game and Image Spotlight images. We hope that you will enjoy this little feature as much as we enjoy seeing user created images in the loading screens ourselves.

The list of fixes and improvements in ETS2 Update 1.20:

AI

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.”

It's like Skyrim with trucks!

Except well, not. But it's a lot of fun, and it definitely gives the feeling of a completely open world that's just ready for you to explore. Hop right in a truck and start hauling freight for others, and earn enough money to buy your own fleet of vehicles and keep more of the profits to yourself.

It's really two games in one, because in addition to the fairly robust truck driving simulation, there's a pretty great business management simulation as well where you can play some kind of Trucking Tycoon and grow a small business into a profitable little empire of trucks and drivers all across Europe.

I have to admit, Euro Truck Simulator 2 really surprised me with just how fun it is to play. It's pretty challenging to get the hang of at first, but once you do, it's a pretty enjoyable (and even relaxing) experience. The thrill of discovery — and the desire for a little more cash to pay off loans, hire drivers, buy new trucks, expand garages, and customize rigs — keeps me taking just "one more job" again and again.

I kept getting tickets for speeding and ramming people off the street.

Then I played Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Do you know what sucks?

School, if you’re still working your way through the education system you have my sympathies.
Sure, it’s important, you need an education, if you couldn’t read you wouldn’t be here with me right now, but it does have a huge downside.
It’s dull; there are a hundred other things you’d rather be doing.
You’re forced to go there every day and you don’t get paid for it, they even test you to judge your intellect against your peers.

Then there are the cliques, the cool kids, the jocks, the nerds, it’s a social minefield of awkwardness.
As if being trapped there all day isn’t enough, they even give you work they expect you to do at home!
School was a pressure filled, judgemental nightmare and one which I was glad to survive.


Do you know what else sucks?

Work, sure you’ve survived the “best days of your life” and now you’re out in the real world.
People are treating you like a grown up (not that you feel any older or wiser than you did at school).
Statistically you’ve probably found yourself in a “ground-hog day” of 9-5 soul destroying office mediocrity, you’ve got a boss you don’t like and a desk you can never leave.
Sure you’re being paid now, but the “bank of mom and dad” has closed.
You don’t think you’re being paid enough for what you do anyway and there’s always a relentless pile of bills demanding your hard earned money.
If you are lucky enough to have a little money left to buy a game or two at the end of the month, you almost certainly won’t have the free time to actually play them.
You know I miss school; they were the best days of my life....


Greener Grass

I often sit at work, questioning my poor decision making skills which have bought me to my particular running lane in the rat race.
There must be plenty of jobs out there which don’t chain you to a desk all day whilst “the metaphorical man” breathes down your neck.
Surely there are people who aren’t trapped in the same “Yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir” tedium in which I’ve somehow managed to imprison myself.


Zen Simulator

But I have managed to find a port in the storm that is my existence, a bubble of calm escapism which grants a little respite to my jaded soul.
This soul medicine comes in the form of what I like to call the “Zen Simulator”.
You know the sort of game where you can do something repetitive, something that doesn’t require too much thought but still rewards you for your efforts.


Farming “Zen-ulator”

Farming Simulator 2015 is a great example of a “Zen Simulator”, you trundle around in a tractor ploughing your fields, planting your crops and generally reaping what you sow.
The “reward hook” is the money you get from selling your produce to buy better tractors to trundle around in and more fields to tend.
It’s a million miles away from the adrenalin fuelled FPS titles I find myself playing at the weekends,
The Zen simulator is the perfect genre to escape into after a hard day of work or school and now I’ve discovered that driving a truck can be just as therapeutic as chugging around the countryside in a tractor.


Euro Truck “Zen-ulator” 2

Euro Truck Simulator 2 is another perfect example of a “Zen Sim”.
You start the game running delivery contracts for other people.
You can peruse a list jobs requesting cargo to be picked from and delivered to various locations around Europe.
You pick a job from the list, (your choice might not only be based on the payout of a job, I’ve found myself picking contracts just because I like the idea of driving to particular delivery destination. ) then you find yourself sitting in the rig provided by your employer, trailer all hooked up and ready to go. They’ve even already set the sat nav. for you!


Drink and Drive

The core of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is spent driving along the highways and byways of Europe.
This is a driving simulator, not a racing game; you’ll want to take care of whatever Big-Rig you find yourself in.
Damage it and the repair costs will come out of your fee.
You’ll also want to drive responsibly; running red lights will cost you, as will getting caught by speed cameras.
Why would you want to rush anyway when you’ve got some beautiful European scenery to drink in as you drive?


It’s about the Journey, Not the Destination

The scenery is where Euro Truck Simulator 2 shines, this is a game that understands it’s the journey that’s important, your destination is just another way point to pause at.
As you put your “pedal to the metal” and open your rig up on the motorways of Europe you’ll be treated to a lush and changing landscape racing passed your windscreen.
Don’t get too distracted looking at the pretty fields of sunflowers though or you might miss your exit (or worse hit another vehicle and damage your truck!)


A Continent of Possibilities

There are 69 European cities present in the vanilla game spread across a dozen countries.
(You can add more via DLC too!)
Each city has its own unique real world land marks or iconic buildings present, you can often see them looming over other city buildings as you wind your way through the suburbs.
It’s a really nice touch to be able to recognise which city you’re approaching from the skyline without having to check the sat nav. or map.


Don’t go into this thinking it’s an exact recreation of Europe though or you’ll be disappointed.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 adopts the same stance to mapping the European Continent as “The Crew” does to mapping North America.
What you have here is a condensed version of Europe, which is probably just as well, I think driving from Southern Italy to Northern England in real time might take a little while longer than the normal hour or two I have spare in the evenings.


Points on your License

It’s not just about driving around making money either (well it is, but there are extra game mechanics to keep things interesting).
There’s an experience based progression system here too.
As you drive around, completing deliveries, you’ll earn points which you can spend to unlock new capabilities.
You can invest points several different areas, for example, you could focus your experience points in haulage distant which will make longer distance contracts available to you or you could invest points in licences for various types of hazardous cargo if you like the idea of trucking some dangerous chemicals around Europe.


The Boss of You

When you’ve amassed enough wealth from “working for the man” you can invest in your own truck (there are plenty of models and varieties to choose from) and start your own haulage company.
This not only gives you more freedom with regards to delivery contracts, but also gives you the chance to invest future earnings in upgrading your rig, whether that is an engine upgrade or go faster stripes, that’s up to you.
There are plenty of stylish paint jobs you can pick as DLC too, should you like a more personalised look to your truck of choice.


Drive Safe

Being your own boss isn’t all parts and paint jobs either, it comes with an extra layer of responsibility too.
It’ll be up to you to pull in at the services and fill up the gas tank from time to time now; running out of gas whilst on a long haul is not a good idea.
It’s also not a good idea to keep driving without a rest too, everyone needs sleep and you’re no exception so remember to keep an eye on your fatigue levels and pull in for a nap when you need one!
You’re also going to have to pay for maintenance on your truck now, so it’s even more important ... <...snip...>

Euro Truck Simulator 2 isnt a game you play. its a game that consumes you. its a drug. you dont buy this game knowing that you will loose your social life. but ETS2 takes what it wants. my entire family has abandoned me. all thats left is my fleet of 50 trucks. my girlfriend crys from our bed "turn off the game, its time to go to sleep" she dosnt understand. its not a game. I run a Multi-Million doller International trucking empire, sleeping is for the noobs. this game recieves a perfect 10/10 from me, i have lost everything i have ever loved. but, i do have 20 Volvo trucks now....
