Euro Truck Simulator 2 - (Alec Meer)


I’ve been playing the newly released Fishing: Barents Sea in the hope that it was water-bound cousin to American/Euro Truck Simulator, those bastions of road-tripping relaxation. What I found was something very different. Something remarkable in its own way.

Chilly Norwegian seas, the lonely put-put of a solo fishing boat engine, the methodical laying and collecting of lines – and a sublimely-synthy, ever-so-Vangelis soundtrack as I coolly slice open fish bellies. (more…)

Hello Car Mechanic Simulator fans!

We delivered you remastered Bentley DLC this time. There are some fixes and improvements over CMS15 dlc as well. Check them out!

As for future plans and question you guys are asking, here are few informations that you are interested in :

What about Sandbox mode?
Yes we added it into TODO list, so it will be implemented for sure.

When we will add more tuning parts (mechanical)
We plan to add another group of parts in this month. This will include parts for dlc engines as well (like for Bentley W12 etc)

What you are working on right now?
Right now we are developing Photomode, Garage Look changing feature and custom Gearboxes shop. Of course we are still looking for bugs and fixing them, as well as optimizing game and making gameplay more fluid.

Mac version?
Yes - mac version is almost ready - need some testing. Mac version will require powerful Mac to run it in higher details.

Can we add shortcuts on keyboard for some of the main game modes
Yes but this will be added after we will implement photomode, garage look and gearboxes - we cannot develop all your request in the same time.

We want to create engines on engine crain
We know that, and that is why we also added this into TODO list. When? Same answer like with shortcuts. ASAP

Just keep with us and we will get you informed as frequently as we can :)

Thank you all for supporting and many thanks to our modders, who bring a lot of great cars into Steam Workshop section! Great work guys!

Plymouth DLC is released with special addon Speed Track. Like in Jeep DLC, we want to give you something more than just a cars and engines in DLC. This time is a speed track, on which you can test maximum speed of cars, as well as some acceleration times.
Why Plymouth and Speed Track you will ask? Why not? Back in a days there was a crazy Road Runner version named Superbird, developed for Nascar Racing, and it was a fast car!

Changelog (with hotfix which fixed some nasty bugs) :
1.5.1 hotfix 1
- fixed problems with parts mounting, shop searching etc
- fixed problems with engine crain
- fixed some problems with new hemi engines

- Plymouth DLC
- new Speed Track (*Plymouth DLC)
- added drag coefficient into car physics
- workshop car parts moved into new workshop car body shop

- slowdown when mounting license plates fixed
- ui improvements in part/group select
- proper naming of additional tuning parts
- uploader will not upload sample into workshop
- braking instead of handbraking in drive pause menu
- reptilia r2 added air filter box

Plans for near future :
- Garage Look changing tools (walls, floor etc)
- gearboxes shop + new gearboxes (with longer gears etc) (*free Tuning DLC)

Gearboxes shop will let you buy shorter or longer gearboxes, which will help you achive better top speeds or acceleration on some heavy tuned cars. We thing it will be sweet addon into game (of course added via free update)

Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 - (Alice O'Connor)

The relaxing fix ’em up Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 has added options to fancy-up cars with custom cosmetic doodads as well as fancier mechanoparts, coming in the free ‘Tuning’ DLC on Tuesday. I’ve not played a load of Car Mechanic Sim but in all my time playing Viscera Cleanup Detail, which has that similar ‘follow a physical process until something ruined becomes good’ vibe, it had never occurred to me that I might want to actually improve things too. A new career awaits as a mechanic helpfully adding undercar lighting, turbochargers, wheel spikes, and harpoons.*> (more…)
