Thrustmaster® T248 Giveaway!Aug 31, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsWe are excited to partner up with Thrustmaster to join the launch of their all-new T248 steering wheel! Being invited as a launch partner is a confirmation of the high status of our truck sim games in the driving simulation genre. In practice, this means that our programmers have had a chance to get their hands on pre-production units before they hit the market, to make sure that our games will support the wheel's new features at launch. For active members of our #BestCommunityEver, this partnership brings a chance to benefit, too. As a part of a cross-promotion plan, we are to receive a bunch of shiny new steering wheels to give away! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/9387da1404a1e6eb93f34048393d99afe620327d.png As we are talking cross-promotion, both companies are trying to help each other's products gain more visibility. While Thrustmaster is going to showcase American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 to their audience, we agreed to try to create a little buzz on our social media too. Starting today, anyone who logs in to their World of Trucks account will automatically receive a free gift - the Thrustmaster T248 Mini Wheel cabin accessory item. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/e28cc8a2d2132b805c3eabf1dc97dcf0680bbbc8.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/7c96423b107e7f2ee73f3ddebffaf1beabfce788.jpg Decorate your truck cabin with it and take an interior screenshot at a location in #ETS2 or #ATS you like.

You can join us tonight from 18:00 CEST on our Twitch & YouTube channels, where we will host a special Wyoming & Thrustmaster T248 Live Gameplay Stream. You can bet that our hosts Alex & Nemiro will surely not come empty-handed to this session. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/5965c57fb6311793417ad6c5d6f6ce3a0b714e24.png And if you're a fan of Thrustmaster, then you might also want to keep an eye on our communication channels. We are already planning more fun and more content for our #BestCommunityEver together with Thrustmaster coming later this year!Travelling across Europe is a dream come true with the venerable Euro Truck multiplayer modAug 30, 2021 - EurogamerThere's nothing that quite defines fantasy vacations so much as the idea of a cross-country road trip with friends. One can picture it now: a beaten-up Volkswagen van, a few close friends, and nothing but conversation to pass your time cruising through the open road with the wind in your hair. According to research posted on the US-based National Centre for Biotechnology Information, out of the 91.2 percent of surveyed members had a bucket list, and a whopping 78.5 percent of them had a desire to travel in some form. This should come as little surprise. Many consider traveling across the globe a luxury for those with the money and the time to do so, but it turns out that a rich lifestyle isn't the only way to experience the joys of a road trip with companions at your side. I've been traveling Europe with the aid of Euro Truck Simulator 2 and a multiplayer mod called TruckersMP. It's worth mentioning that both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator have now had multiplayer support added since July, which makes it a lot easier for everyone to get an online game, but the official Convoy multiplayer is an eight person affair. TruckersMP, while getting on a bit, is on a different scale. Initially released on the 1st of May 2014, TruckersMP is a massively multiplayer mod for Euro Truck 2 that allows players to join one of several servers and travel Europe with thousands of other truckers. The mod makes a multitude of changes to allow for a streamlined multiplayer experience, including removing NPC drivers and putting speed-caps on certain servers. It also adds radio channels for voice chat and even its own radio station which the community runs.

A small team of our vehicle artists went to Germany recently and visited Feldbinder Spezialfahrzeugwerk GmbH to check out their amazing vehicles at two of their facilities at Winsen and Lutherstadt Wittenberg. Let’s take a look at the information our team has managed to gather and the overall experience of this interesting visit! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/2de1378bd3126da254368f2008c63fa9773b5e55.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/dc437f2e3bedc9759fbc6328e9bf997d67bd1a2e.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/4a8a76dc2dcace3e0b5b0bb8bbb42c9b0fb818c3.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/1be5a2c02226026cbf7859e317c96451cf822c3d.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/86876452b8261e0a86fa7eff08b1d8039918d8ba.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/4eca4679dcd2e822611e42772d17bacb3e24a6d7.jpg Our contacts at Feldbinder were so kind that they invited us to their facilities and provided our team with an all-inclusive package of premium care and hospitality. The idea behind this invitation was actually conceived by one of Feldbinder's employees, Leon (in the image below), who is a passionate ETS2 player with over 1500 hours of game time. Not only did our team get the opportunity to meet this passionate fan in person, they were also fortunate enough to meet technical managers at the facilities, who provided us with plenty of information about their trailer configurations. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/54fa6e8b701f75246b48fa3a5922e720ba99ad89.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/0877662f531de0b53740668b94fca3abd99aa2cf.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/910c884934c336d1fbed328343b75c45cf1cd40a.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/f802891560299da0eb01cbbd7706ba6cad07d6c0.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/71372b4a6721ea23777e8f97af2cc97f17ac7c3c.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/ec118839745381620cf2a91fe82ae6a4918a6c4b.jpg The topic of configurations brings us to the simple but important mission our team was entrusted with. Apart from simply shaking hands, making contacts and strengthening our relationship right from the start, the goal was also to gather reference data and scans for some of their vehicles which we would like to bring for our players to ETS2 via 3D reconstruction using photogrammetry (as shown in the image below). Please keep in mind that this is only the start of an extremely interesting and promising cooperation, and we cannot provide any more information on what the future will bring for ETS2. We will, however, do our best to keep you updated as our teams continue in the process of modelling these vehicles. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/25859fed869dbe45600d127cde493c3863d8b141.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/8dafafb95ff11998153642933da9086bd0d516fa.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/a8020bfbbff662d5e9e317b626a9ec52cf095c3f.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/1f9f3457277f40b28f43d76e323d589b7abd3d02.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/e0d3aeec4ae2a16b9c2ae0714f4360452af177b8.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMA...Construction Equipment Transport?Aug 20, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsHey, psst! Something cool seems to be under development by the SCS vehicle team. We have glimpsed some real heavy machinery being valiantly pulled at locations in both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. Could this be a new DLC in the works?

Convoy has both advantages and limitations compared with the fanmade option, but the devs aim to add some notable features for official multiplayer - "eventually". Convoy currently supports up to eight players, and that's set to increase. In a recent blog post, the devs say "we expect to be able to raise the player limit in the future, however, we are keeping it small at this time due to its work-in-progress nature. There are important performance optimizations as well as better moderation tools under development that we would like to have in place first before increasing the limit." The devs also plan to introduce mod support for Convoy, though that introduces its own set of technical issues "when it comes to coming up with a safe and robust way to synchronize sessions of players joining in with different mods, and then back again when they wish to revert to the previous state to continue playing with their regular player profile."

Convoy is a new multiplayer game mode where players can set up and host their own private sessions (password optional) to drive with their friends or other fellow truckers. With synchronized AI traffic, time and weather, and the ability to take the same job as other players, lots of you have been enjoying trucking together. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/9084219/bc4bf7fab0691e6859520d1a6e4cd81419c4f1a6.jpg However, we know that many of you still have questions about Convoy, which is why we are bringing this blog post with answers to the most frequently asked questions across our social media channels. Will the maximum players limit be increased? Eventually, yes. Convoy currently allows you to create and host an online session with up to 8 players. We expect to be able to raise the player limit in the future, however, we are keeping it small at this time due to its work-in-progress nature. There are important performance optimizations as well as better moderation tools under development that we would like to have in place first before increasing the limit. Will there be MOD support in Convoy? Eventually, yes. We are looking into supporting third-party modifications in Convoy multiplayer sessions. While it's not technically so difficult to connect players with an identical set of mods, there are many potential problems to handle when it comes to coming up with a safe and robust way to synchronize sessions of players joining in with different mods, and then back again when they wish to revert to the previous state to continue playing with their regular player profile. How do I add someone to my friends that I enjoyed driving with? You can add someone you played with recently on Convoy via the Steam client or overlay. Just click on the view tab (or view players in the Steam overlay), then on players. This will bring up a list of players you recently played with and a link to their profiles. Another alternative way of adding them would be to ask for their Steam friend code, which allows you to add them with ease! Simply open your friends list and click on the 'Add Friend' located on the right-hand side of the top bar. This will take you to you a page that will show your unique Friend code and a space to enter another person's code, which will send them a friend request! I can't see my friend's hosted session. Make sure you are friends on Steam and that you both have the latest version of the game updated and that you are all set to online on your Steams friend list. A possible reason you may not see a friend's hosted session is that you can only see sessions that are hosted in the same region as you. This means you may not be able to see a friend's hosted session if they live very far away from you. To join a distant friend's session, you may need to change your Steam download region to match theirs, which will allow you to view hosted sessions in that region....Guess where we are?

Our teams worked very hard and under extreme time pressure to bring you these new models just a day after the official reveal.

It’s difficult to simply express with words how much we appreciate this kind of feedback, since in the end, whatever we do we are doing for the happiness of our #BestCommunityEver. What you will see here is just a small selection of videos we have laid our eyes on and there is much more here and here. Feel free to keep sending us pictures and videos on our social media - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and we’ll make sure to check them out as well! In addition to screenshots and videos, quite often there are developers who are watching the ETS2 and ATS categories on Twitch, so the streamers certainly do not have to feel left out. We also immensely value the amount of positive feedback we have received for the update in comment sections and on our forums. We know you have been waiting to drive together with your friends for a long time, so do not be afraid and start a Convoy session yourself or jump into an already created one and work together with your fellow truckers in this awesome new multiplayer experience!Euro Truck Simulator 2's official multiplayer is live in the free 1.41 updateJul 15, 2021 - PCGamesNWhile fans of virtual trucking have been able to play SCS Software's truck sims online for years thanks to the TruckersMP mod, there's never been an option to play with your pals in vanilla American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 - until today. The 1.41 update for both games is now live, introducing the Convoy multiplayer mode. If you've missed the Convoy details so far, the mode allows you to create private online games for up to eight players. (The devs plan to increase that number in the future.) It's much smaller in scale than TruckersMP, but it does allow for synchronised AI traffic, as well as synced time, weather, and truck customisation options. You can even hit the CB radio to talk to your fellow truckers. Yeah, that's basically just a push-to-talk button, but I still love it. 1.41 launches today for ETS2, and besides the multiplayer mode, it also includes new time and weather options for the photo mode, a quick travel option, and updated UI for the in-game map. Those same features hit ATS when that game got its 1.41 update earlier this week. Read the rest of the story...

Session hosts will automatically be made admins of these sessions, allowing them to ultimately control what kind of environment they want to have online, as well as having the ability to kick any trouble-makers from the session. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/696e06ba065856389acbaeb9240a833eaf748140.jpg You can also see, filter, browse and eventually join any of the available sessions that have already been created by your friends or other truckers. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/b4ba1a95f371cf42d31c5cfffa4da28c39618b1b.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/7f6d726c77b0fb1056cfd2c559544e64a946877d.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/bf40f4491b2afdb37045a429cc2a394c72205324.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/43e5c2ee606f985d7d668c1610824afd8b901ee6.jpg So what options and features will players be able to use and experience in Convoy? Any player can host and create their own private sessions for up to 8 peopleAbility to haul the same contracts/jobs together from the same company and to the same destinationSynchronized AI traffic (random events included)Synchronized time and weatherSynchronized paint jobs, truck accessories, cabin accessories, cargoes and moreAbility to communicate with other drivers via CB radio broadcast (X key), quick replies (Q key), or text chat (Y key) {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/fbbad3e47ce53441c63f2aacb1f54fdb2d1cde87.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/0352c56281ae281fd9c78d8e227c2970124d8ed0.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/4806ec38a99148d9318a3e4814123b3f23380101.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/671496136ecb3ad7cc998c63d3eb12022793076b.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/babe15839375ed72ff79cf29def388be5b4bf33e.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/8c711507a7cef1e3a1f55ade1268a7771d60c2e2.jpg We know how many players are eager to try out this new feature; however, there are some things you will need to know before joining your fr...#CruisingIberia Event ConclusionJul 12, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsSince April, drivers across the world have been taking part in the #CruisingIberia World of Trucks event. This special event was to celebrate the release of the Iberia DLC in Euro Truck Simulator 2, where drivers had the opportunity to earn rewards by completing personal and community goals whilst discovering cities across this giant Peninsula. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/a47c455207dcc0f0cd6d59284eb166fc6bab57dd.jpg In just over a week, you smashed the community goal of 250,000,000km! Wow! We couldn't believe how fast the goal was met; it just goes to show the amazing power of our #BestCommunityEver. Whilst the community goal was completed, there were still many truckers who did not have the time to complete their personal goal to deliver cargo to or from 20 cities in Iberia. So we decided to extend the event, just to make sure everyone got a chance to gain their rewards. However, with new events on the horizon, #CruisingIberia must, unfortunately, come to end, but let us take a moment to take a look at some of the stats that you achieved whilst exploring our newest addition to ETS2! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/3902e6c288fcbd92e4d7f3c1467f20fd975421b4.jpg Incredible work truckers! We cannot thank you enough for your support during the release of Iberia. It really does bring a lot of joy to our team to see how much you enjoy participating in these events. We hope you ride with pride with your newly acquired Iberian-themed paint jobs & cabin accessories which you have earned. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/10a80dd8219e1ef48ace378bb5c8206534240b11.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/674ef60755584c44c0ac982540c2a04f58837461.jpg Iberia wasn't the only place where our community made themselves known! You also took to our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages with the hashtag #CruisingIberia and shared photos and videos of your journeys across Iberia. We absolutely loved seeing all of your reactions to the many unique locations, landmarks, and industries this part of the world has to offer. We cannot wait to get trucking again with you soon in a future World of Trucks event, which may be arriving sooner than you think.Convoy on the Horizon, Get Ready to Join!Jul 10, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsAn interesting couple of weeks full of testing is behind us and we have been making great improvements largely thanks to your feedback, our #BestCommunityEver. The time to switch gears and drive forward into the future is almost here and we believe now is the right time for another teaser! In case you have missed our coverage of experimental and open betas and want to learn more about our upcoming Convoy gameplay mode, you can read more about it in the 1.41 Update Open Beta blog articles (ETS2, ATS). Apart from celebrating your fellow truckers on International Friendship Day, which is this month (how convenient, right?), you will also have a chance to join them on the road, taking the same job and delivering cargo together, navigating through synchronized traffic, braving the weather along the route and much more! But before all this will come with the 1.41 release, let us put you in the right mood with this video: The full release of the 1.41 update is coming soon, hopefully in a matter of days. So now is the best time to let your friends know what’s happening so everyone is ready for its arrival. We hope to see you doing some deliveries on the roads of ETS2 and ATS together!Renault Trucks Evolution Design Contest Winner RevealJul 8, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsIn April, we teamed up with Renault Trucks and Thrustmaster to introduce the new Renault Trucks T Evolution truck through Euro Truck Simulator 2. With it, we also launched the #RenaultTrucksEvolution Design Contest to give you the exciting opportunity to create a paint job design for the newly-released vehicle. In this competition, for the first time in the history of the synergy between virtual truckers and the real automotive industry, the ultimate winner would see their design featured in-game and on a REAL truck! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/6cc07843c948688d940b4951e6a73b7db62eab44.jpg During the contest, we received hundreds of unique design entries from around the world. To everyone who entered, we cannot thank you enough, we loved seeing all your original and creative liveries! However, the team over at Renault Trucks had to make the tough decision to choose just 5 finalists to progress to the final round. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/2e91e61102facc4b463b297a027f357fa2f48391.gif And this is where we left the decision in your hands, our #BestCommunityEver! We asked you to vote for your favorite design, which would ultimately appear in Euro Truck Simulator 2 as a paint job and on an actual Renault Trucks T High! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/9baeec838f7653663e896530d4f86ff9cbf10110.png Well, today we are incredibly excited to reveal the final winning design which you voted for!

Heart of Russia: NatureJun 22, 2021 - Community AnnouncementsThe sheer size of Russia means that it hosts a vast array of nature and wildlife. The country is home to various landscapes and almost every habitat imaginable including forest, rivers, seas and more. In our upcoming Heart of Russia DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2, you will be able to journey through some of these beautiful but sometimes tricky country roads. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/3135f71bcfee6807aac7ac9429ab078f34b2bf8c.jpg Russia contains the largest expanse of forest in the world with some 8 million square kilometers of mixed woodlands, including larch, pine, spruce, oak and the country's national tree birch, which is an important part of Russia's folklore and history; but more about that in a future blogpost!  {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/258effd8487adc851a4ddb78e25a1c20b9505c5b.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/739e1d2dee8b295a8b5670e75ec14b4f213d513f.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/9836182b1349506239c395b397569ffb6e2731eb.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/6ffc4141acf422fcfb1cfadd12e9dae78839978b.jpg As Russia is so huge, it’s no surprise that this incredible country is also home to a large number of ecosystems and habitats. From remote rugged wilderness to picturesque countryside, Russia is bound to surprise you at every turn with its rich history and abundance in natural beauty. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/4ca795c77ca31cd427ba45854134efcaed35c6da.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/666eb8b6f0f86b20c3f1cf286241f8a3731db5d6.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/3881bcc5d19215d92cd7615a9120e78dde83a935.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/07e4151fd624fc6bd2c17ff840e40099e07bbc15.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/69a4647c3e098e993f83c9451ea98c08b6673282.jpg We look forward to sharing more development news about Heart of Russia in the future, and the beautiful landscapes and new road networks that will arrive with it.

Today, we are happy to share with you that Update 1.41 Open Beta for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is now ready to be tested by our community! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/2cfedecf4f9d7d3320888aa262d9f3605878c910.jpg However, please keep in mind that this is the first iteration of the open beta, which is still very much a work-in-progress build. If you want to take it for a spin, you can help contribute by reporting any bugs you may encounter in the appropriate section of our official forum. Your feedback and reports are extremely valuable for our team and we thank you in advance for taking the time to help us out. Please bear in mind that this update will likely render many community MODs incompatible. MOD authors may need to adjust and update their mods to work with this update. We strongly recommend that you use a profile without any third-party modifications if you wish to participate in the 1.41 Open Beta. So, let's take a look at what the 1.41 update has in store! Convoy Multiplayer Open Beta Convoy is a new multiplayer game mode, where players can set up and host their own private sessions (password optional) to drive with their friends or other fellow truckers. There is currently support for synchronized AI traffic, time and weather, and the ability to take the same job as other players. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/4419325/068fd082d44f3dbaf5be26c2b33c99a57be25b81.jpg During this open beta phase, Convoy will allow you to create and host an online session with up to 8 players.
