Corporate Cooperation

Our effort to secure official licenses of trucks to put into our games continues, now our focus is on Northern America. Courting the truck manufacturers - getting their attention and reaching the decision makers - is really not easy at all for a small company like SCS Software coming from outside of the transportation industry. The licensing negotiations in some cases take years to complete, and sometimes we are asked to prove that we are really taking this seriously.

Here is a little photo report we have just received from our friends at Kenworth/PACCAR. We have created a special demo based off an alpha build of American Truck Simulator for their corporate event, and they also tried to bounce it off the public to see the reaction. We are very excited to hear that both the company executives and the visitors of a science fair really liked the demo!

One more important step to give you fully licensed trucks in our American Truck Simulator...







Just a note

Some people in comments will probably ask why ATS wasn't released yet when February 20th was specified on some sites as the release date, so there's a nice flowchart for you from someone on /r/trucksim.

SCS Blender Tools - First Step



It was already quite a long time ago when we first mentioned our goal to empower the mod community with tools matching in power of our internal asset creation pipeline. The road to get there has proved to be somewhat bumpier than we anticipated, but we are happy to report very good progress at last.

Today we are releasing the first version of SCS Blender Tools. There is still a lot of work left to be done on polishing and on proper support of the most complex types of 3D assets, but already we are in good enough shape to invite you to try things out.

Please keep in mind that what you are getting is a beta, with no express guarantees that it will work perfectly or work at all in your desired context. You are getting a dump of up-to-date SCS Blender Tools codebase, we are not holding back any part of it. There is code in there which at least partially covers all of the wide spectrum of different 3D model types in our games, but as of now we only bring out to your attention specific aspects of SCS Blender Tools we consider ready. More advanced stuff still needs time to mature.

At this point in time, it is only the types of assets listed below which we suggest you to experiment with. We do not have the capacity to provide extensive support on our forums, but we'll keep an eye on them to see if we can chip in where the community needs guidance. But there is a little point trying to get us to respond to questions concerning areas of the tools considered unfinished.

With that said, the current version of SCS Blender Tools brings you the creation and export pipeline of static geometry.

We included several sample models that generally illustrate the possibilities of asset types that you can perfectly accomplish today. Those models should guide you in creating well optimized models, just the way we make them.

Let's inspect sample models in closer detail:


Detailed building model

This is a model of a detailed building. We use such models up close to the player, therefore the texture, the mesh resolution and level of detail are quite large. Once you import it you can see it uses little more material than simpler models to best accommodate its up-close placement.


Far distance buildings

This is a model sample we place at far distance from the player. The mesh is considerably simpler and the texture is much smaller. Because it is placed at large distance from the camera in the game, lack of resolution is never noticeable. As you can see its uses important optimization - multiple buildings are combined into one single mesh, using exact same material and texture. This allows graphics cards to process such models much faster (as just one piece of geometry, not multiple pieces).


Truck bullbar upgrade model

Here's a sample of a truck upgrade part - Scania bullbar. We intentionally included slightly more sophisticated upgrade model. This way you can see usage of materials and alpha channel on that bull-bar netting. Pretty much all truck upgrades (roof grills, low grills, side-skirts...) were built this way.


Front truck wheel


Rear truck wheel

And last two samples of even more specialized geometry - truck wheels. They use their own set of materials, we recommend that you explore the structure. Check out the usage of textures and mesh complexity. These models also show you an example of 'Parts' usage, and the way how special 'shadow-caster mesh' with its 'shadow-caster material' is used to make your own truck wheels correctly. [Note that there is a plan to eventually split the tyres and the wheel disks into separate upgrade parts in some future update of ETS2/ATS.]

To Get You Started

GitHub Wiki

Wiki is probably the most important place for SCS Blender Tools knowledge base. There you will find the steps you need to take to begin using the tools. You can also find the download links for SCS Blender Tools. And there is even all the source code of the tools, right in the open, which could be quite interesting for the coders out there:

https://github.com/SCSSoftware/BlenderTools/wiki

Forum

We have created a special forum branch, dedicated exclusively to the SCS Blender Tools. If you feel you found a bug in the tools, or want to ask something about them, or share your knowledge with the other people just getting started - this is the place to be. We will be monitoring the forums and hopefully providing some guidance, but again, we do not expect to be able to respond to everybody and to every cry for help.

http://forum.scssoft.com/viewforum.php?f=159

ETS2 web, mod page

In case you forget all the links above you can always start with the modding section of the Euro Truck Simulator 2 web page. The links there should guide you not just to SCS Blender Tools but also to all modding guidelines paramount for successful mod creation.

http://www.eurotrucksimulator2.com/mod_tools.php

We encourage you to import and check all the models on your own. Now all you need to start is a bit of knowledge of Blender!

“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.

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!

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!
