Achievement unlocked: Trucks & Trailers

A frequently asked question concerning ETS2 is when are we going to add achievements to the game. We are aware that achievements could increase the enjoyment of the game (some of us are Steam achievement hunters too!) and we are working towards them, but it may take a while before we are ready to release an update with achievements for everyone. Your ideas for achievements posted in Steam Discussions and on other places are highly valuable for us, so keep them coming!



Sometimes before we go and try to implement something new in the bigger game, we use an older game of ours as the testing and proving grounds. This time Trucks & Trailers got into such role.

Formerly in-game-only achievements in this game are now available as Steam achievements, too. Your achievements and progress will synchronize with Steam after opening your game profile. Full achievements list is here.



You can also compete with your Steam friends and other Steam users thanks to the Steam leaderboards support for all combinations of difficulties and levels.



Steam cloud saves are now supported in Trucks & Trailers too, so you can continue your game on any PC. No need to worry about profile backups, just launch the game anywhere from the Steam client and play.

About This Game

Trucks & Trailers puts your driving skills to the ultimate test with 50 individual truck driving challenges. Compete against the clock to complete intricately designed courses and tasks that put you firmly into the driver's seat. Can you avoid obstacles whilst reversing a trailer? Do you have the lateral thinking required to sort a series of trucks & trailers in the yard into their correct positions? Can you park with precision?

As your skills increase, upgrading the difficulty level will guarantee that there is always a task that will put you and your truck to the ultimate test! At the highest difficulty setting external camera views are disabled, forcing you to maneuver like the pros using only in-cab mirrors. A test that will award you the gold medals and the honor of being a real trucking titan!

A game made by SCS Software back in 2011.

Some of the tasks in the game are really easy but some of them are a lot harder which is a good thing, there's no free roam atleast I didn't find it if it was there but I don't mind at all, the game is about completing tasks in various scenerios and I think it does exactly that!

If you've played Euro Truck Simulator (ETS 1) the truck's handling and the enviroment's might be familiar to you which might help/might not help, atleast I found a lot of familar places while playing this game.

Overall, I recommend the game. At the moment it's 7,99€ (on sale) but the actual price is only 9,99€ which isn't that bad so if you like trucking simulator's you should atleast give this one a try! :)

Also in the game, there's 50 Tasks + 7 Basic Trucking Tasks (learning the basic vehicle manoeuvres) and 6 Bonus Trucking Tasks and there's also ingame achievements (Note: Ingame not Steam achievements). A total of 36 achievements.
There's also 13 different truck models to choose from and a bunch of color choices!

EDIT: SCS Software added some achievements to this game some time ago and if you have completed some of the achievements when the game didn't have Steam achievements, you will automatically unlock them.
Also, after fully completing the game, including the Bonus Tasks, I can just say that it's an extremely hard game to complete, especially the last few missions.

Any idiot can press the accelerator to go fast but that does not make them a good driver. Being able to maintain control while negotiating corners and avoiding obstacles is what takes skill. Doing that in reverse with massive trailer on and still beating the clock is a real challenge.
The game is basically Euro Truck but confined to warehouses and frieghtyards etc. There are a few obstacle courses on roads, but there is no highway cruising here. It all about parking trailers. The tasks start out simple enough but soon get pretty challenging. On Pro mode the constraints on accuracy get a little too tight on some challeneges causing some serious frustration, but ultimately all are doable.
The different camera options and angles are a bit limited and sometimes it gets pretty hard to see what you are doing. Mouse look is available but awkward to use since you are on a time limit and usually dont have a third hand to be able to make use of it. Pro mode becomes even harder as you can only use driver views and the mouse, which means you will need to be an expert and using your mirrors.
Overall this game is a great test of driving skill, coordination and situational awareness. A good buy for any true driving enthusiast.

Trucks & Trailers aka Semi-Trailer Parking Simulator 2011

Pros:
1) Really challenging.
2) Physics engine is decent. It's not great, but passable.

Cons:
1) No manual. I got a 404 Not Found Error. I have no idea how to manual reverse.
2) No customizable avatar. Why even have a portrait? Missed opportunity for collectable headgear. Gold medals are meaningless. Where is my CAT ballcap?!
3) All trucks are COE and seem to handle the same. Missed opportunity.

Final Score: 6/10. I picked this up while it was -80% off for only $2.39 and even then I'd probably only recommend it for die hard semi-tractor simulator enthusiasts.

I picked up this game on the 80% off sale, not expecting much, but I have to say that I'm impressed. Sure, there's no campaign, just a bunch of challenges, but it's fun, diverting and surprisingly engaging. It's also very satisfying; there were times I was absolutely sure I couldn't achieve what they were looking for, but with some lateral thinking, lots of shifting and a bit of "crap, turned the wheel the wrong way" I was able to complete the task and it's really rewarding. Definitely recommended.
