Weight Stations: New feature in American Truck Simulator



We are always delighted when we can share the features that we work on with our community, and today we would like to give you a quick look at one of the core game functionalities in American Truck Simulator: Weight Stations.





Drivers cruising across American highways might occasionally be required to visit a weight alongside of the road to verify if their load complies with regulations. These weight terminals are concentrated along the highways and can be easily accessed by drivers at any time. Please note that Weighting Stations will be exclusive to American Truck Simulator and will not appear in Euro Truck Simulator 2.





Due to overwhelming community response and upcoming Holiday Season our team has decided to extend SCS Polar Express Holiday event past Christmas Eve and into the New Year - everyone who finishes their assigned delivery will receive the exclusive Raven Truck Design DLC!

Happy Holidays,
Team at SCS Software

“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.

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.

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

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.

+ Management. - Buy garages, recruit drivers and create your own company.

+ Awesome physics.

The atmosphere and graphics:
+ Excellent UI. - Simple, clear and readable fonts on wide range of screen sizes in any devices.
+ Stunning realistic world.
+ Realistic day-night cycle.

King of the road, lonely warrior wages, freight forwarding manager in continuous stress? In Euro Truck Simulator 2 of Rondo Media and SCS software you can simulate everything. Until unconsciousness. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is that rare thing, a strong sim tethered to a strong game. It is all about living the dream that is professional trucking.

You are tasked with transporting cargo to more than 60 different European cities. You start as a low-skilled, truckless lorry jockey, forced to take work from established haulage companies. 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!

A LOT more fun than it should be.

1. Find Job 2. Gather trailer 3. Deliver trailer - Get paid... "i guess that can be fun...?"

Maybe it's the idea of creating and expanding a business. Maybe it's that wierd infatuation people have with locomotives . Maybe it's just a cool job that works perfect for an easy going simulator.

It's just good fun. Jump in and out, no hassle. Simple and relaxing.

Your only objective is to create a successful business and ultimately: earn money. Money buys accesssories and upgrades for your trucks, along with recruiting drivers and buying garages. Naturally your truck is the whole game, so customizing and improving it is your primary motivation. Working towards unlocks is a major incentive to keep you engaged.

There is a also a huge community with tons of fantastic mods to try out. They're easy to use and the content is full of good work. There are enough mods to improve upon nearly every aspect of the game.
There are a lot of sites with a lot of re-uploads and out-of-date crap, so It took me a while to sift through to find the ones i wanted. But it was totally worth it, I have an awesome menagerie of mods.

Its an otherwise pretty dull scenario for a game, there isnt a whole lot more underneath than what's delivered at face value.
There isnt anything truly unique or special about it. A European truck driving simulator, you shouldnt think much of it...

But even if you have a remote interest, it might be enough to get some real enjoyment out of this.
