ETS2 nature
Quote :

We have created another short "throw away" movie instead of static images, showing a few nature scenes in ETS2. The art team is striving to make the virtual world non-static, feeling natural and alive rather than very much frozen like in our older games. The world that the player drives through is a very important part of the overall experience - after all we hope that you will be spending hours and hours in this world, and we need to keep you interested in exploring it.

A7 Afsluitdijk dam in the Netherlands

Quote :
You may still remember an older blog post where we were showing early work on the ETS2 area portrayed in the following movie. We have revisited the area now in the current build of the game with the intent of creating another short living screenshot movie, but in the end we have recorded quite a bit longer stretch of road. Hopefully you won't mind ;-).

Disclaimers will be needed again - yes we know that the mirrors reflection angle needs some work, and we'll do something about it about the time the game ships for sure. Also, while we are presenting one of the coolest trucks in the world here, licensing talks about presence of particular truck brands in the game are still under way, and we cannot guarantee that anything that you see in our movies or screenshots from work-in-progress state of the game will be allowed to appear in the final game.

Truck brand licensing
Quote :

Here is a small example of what goes on during our licensing talks - as we try to prove to truck manufacturers that having their vehicles portrayed in our games is no harm for them, but rather a benefit, pictures are a very illustrative argument...

Working on road signs

Quote :
Quite some effort recently is going into populating the Euro Trucks Simulator 2 world with road signs. This represents many man-weeks of grueling work. Creating the art and models is quick compared to actually placing the thousands and thousands of signs into the map - and then having to come back to make corrections again and again.

Unlike our previous games, we strive to have country-specific signs, the images below are from France.

Time of day

Quote :
One area where we hope to get considerably better than any of our previous games is day/night cycle in ETS2. The new rendering engine with deferred shading and HDR allows for a lot of new cool things. We are still not done with tweaking the effects, but things look quite promising.

Scania DemoCenter at Södertälje, Sweden

Quote :
Sometimes our dialogue with truck manufacturers regarding official licensing of their brands for our games takes an interesting turn. It just so happened earlier this week, when SCS Software's CEO Pavel Šebor was invited to drive a few laps at the Scania DemoCenter. This vehicle demonstration circuit is very near to Scania's headquarters and factory in Södertälje, just south of Stockholm, Sweden.

Pavel drove a truck for the very first time in his life on this day, so it's obvious he was nervous, but excited at the same time. He might have driven a bit slow, but considering that he was driving a V8 730 HP tractor in a loooong Scandinavia-specific 24 meters configuration, loaded with 60 tonnes of cargo, it was a smooth ride for a newbie. Perhaps playing the truck games really gives one a head start when it comes to driving the vehicles for real ;-).

Time of Day living screenshot

Quote :
Here is a very simple view of a scene with static camera, but various time of day.
Quote :
We still have some work ahead of us in day/night cycle simulation (as well as bad weather which we are not yet even ready to show - the new effects are not completed). We are now tweaking tone mapping parameters; our new HDR system has a lot more degrees of freedom for settings things up compared to our old engine, but it also means that we can spend a lot of time with the alchemy of finding the best approach.

The following set of images may be of interest especially for our fans in the UK - they are showing one of the means to reach continental Europe.

Here you can see a the Eurotunnel. Scs software has made the tunnel beutiful Very Happy
If you can see on the pictures below, that there is a new cargo.

Scenes from Poland

Quote :
We are happy to announce that we have reached agreement with CD Projekt, major games publishing house in Poland, to release Euro Truck Simulator 2 in Poland together. We are sure that our game will now receive the attention and care of a much stronger publishing partner than our previous releases in the country.

CD Projekt is organizing their quarterly special event today, they call it Jesienna Konferencja CD PROJEKT. They have asked us to prepare a short clip from ETS2 for the purpose of presenting an early look at the game to their visitors from retail chains. Warming up people in the distribution "channel" - persuading retail chain decision makers and store managers that it is worth it to stock our game and put it on the shelves where potential customers can see it - is a crucial job of publishers and distributors in each country. Nice to see the Polish guys working on the task already.

We were happy to help our friends at CD Projekt out and created a short movie with scenes from Poland. There is not much new stuff in the movie that frequent visitors of our blog haven't yet seen, but we thought you might like to see it too, while the movie is still fresh.

Art in the UK in ETS2

SCS has uploaded some new pictures from a piece of art that will come in ETS 2
In the previous post you could see some new AI traffic like the Honda Accord now you can see a VW passat, Range Rover and I'm not sure but I think a Jaguar.

Truck customization

Quote :
Today we have a glimpse at the "tuning" interface screen from Euro Truck Simulator 2. It is showing a wealth of categories to customize for the tractors, we hope that you will be happy with this new major feature in our game...

Disclaimer: Any appearance of real brands appearing on these work-in-progress screenshots is only tentative, we are still negotiating with the European truck manufacturers trying to get their approval to portray their fully branded vehicles in our game.

Route Advisor
Quote :

One of cool new features of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is the Route Advisor. It is a combination of a navigation unit, scheduling device, diagnostics and communication module. Rather than using abstract user interface elements, we are trying to produce a believable "gadget" - a smart box that every truck driver would love to have with him or her on the road in our ETS2 world.

Route Advisor is not dissimilar to existing devices used by the transportation industry these days. In reality, the Big Brother aspects of these little boxes is not something that truckers would be so excited about.

I love UK truck simulator, i'm from Canada and i'd much rather play UK truck simulator or Euro truck simulator then the 18 wheels of steel series that SCS software and Valusoft distribute here in North America. Wish they would put this kind of effort into the 18 wheels of steel series.

I saw a site for a future game from SCS "American Truck Simulator" maybe that game will look like ETS, GTS Very Happy

We are still here, still working hard on the game, sorry that the blog gets neglected a bit. We plan to have some unveils of cool ETS2 facts and features in the coming weeks, but for now, to satisfy your never ceasing appetite for more news, let us just post a few nice screens which we took this week on request from one of our distribution partners.

Night Driving

We are thinking of making the night in Euro Truck Simulator 2 much darker than in any of our previous games. In the previous games, we had to make a compromise and make sure that the ambient light at night was still strong enough for the player to be able to make out his surroundings. With ETS2, our new "true" projected lights in the 3D engine allow us to emulate the light conditions at night much better, without making the game borderline unplayable.

A few random screen shots

Quote :
Hi guys, we have been very busy in the past few days to even spend a while on making new screenshots, but we hear your calls for an update on the blog. So we went through our older shots and picked a few that were not yet posted here. They are not revealing anything that you haven't seen yet, very similar pictures have already been published, but at least you see we are still around and trying to make you happy! :-)

Embedding experiment

SCS software has uploaded a 360 degreece turning cabin picture, One word AMAZING Very Happy
Quote :

Often we think if we are not boring you too much with static screenshots, and we thought about a little experiment. We have created a 360 panarama view inside the cabin of a truck we are building for Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Will this link work for you?

Scenic local roads

Quote :
The ratio of local roads versus major highways is increased in Euro Truck Simulator 2 compared to any of our older games. Of course with the compressed scale of the virtual world we don't even have enough room to cover all important highways, and inevitably the selection of local roads is even more limited. But they work really great to spice things up and add variety to the overall experience.

Road signs in various countries

Some great pictures of road signs all over Europe Wink

Quote :
We are finally populating the ETS2 world with road signs. This is a huge task, with the size of the world we expect to spend several weeks just on placing the signs, not to speak about creating them first and play testing them before release.
