Christmas deliveries

It is Christmas time again, which means it is also time for the annual tradition of hauling Christmas gifts in Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator.

This year SCS Software has freshened up the tradition a bit by adding a whole new dimension to it. Literally another dimension. Because this time good are to be transported to and from Santa’s Winterland itself by the means of traversing through one of the many dimensional portals strategically put up on rest stops, refueling points and the likes.

No, you don’t have to hit 88 mph to make the dimensional jump. Only go to one of the designated portals.

The Winterland itself is as the name hints a very wintery place indeed with lots of snow and Christmas feeling. Also watch out, the roads are not only looking snowy – they make for snow driving when it comes to road grip too.

Driving through a winter wonderland.
Arriving to the Christmas market with a truck full of goodies.

As usual goods deliveries made in ETS2 and ATS add up together, so if you have both games you don’t have to do all the work twice in order to get the achievements and rewards for both.

Halloween hauling

It’s that spooky time of the year again and as is tradition, SCS Software’s yearly Halloween event is running in both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2.

As usual if you own both games the Halloween deliveries you do in both games add up together, so you don’t have to do the full thirteen deliveries in both.

Scary is the word. Getting a red light and an approaching train at once is not always the best thing to happen.

A roadtrip to the north

Since I’m finally up to date on the Promods mod version and in a try to forget about the autumn coming rapidly here, I decided to take a tour up north where there blissfully is eternal summer in Euro Truck Simulator 2. So a photo album from the high Nordics it is.

First task. Delivering a yacht from Narvik to Hammerfest. Don’t ask me why they couldn’t just, you know, sail it there.

And once that was done I couldn’t resist from taking a pure sightseeing tour up to Nordkapp. One fun thing is that I actually managed to arrive there right before midnight, so I got to see the midnight sun in all its game glory.

Morning again and time to return south. But in order to not make it a totally unprofitable journey we first should pick up some cargo. And then it’s time to start tunneling and winding back.

The goal, central Finland. So there’s a bit to go.

ETS 2 dawn

Even if I ought to be used to it by now I sometimes still can’t help but marvel over some of the visuals in this game. Sometimes what you need is just to tune in a nice radio station and drive all through the night.

Wielton Trailer Pack DLC for ETS2

The latest DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is out and this time it’s a new trailer brand.

Founded in 1996, Wielton S.A. has become one of the top manufacturers of semi-trailers and trailers in Europe and this DLC Pack provides the opportunity to haul a selection of their trailers.

The Wielton Trailer Pack DLC includes 6 trailer types, with a variety of trailer and chassis sizes, cabin accessories, and customization options.

  • Bulk Master – High Volume Dumper
  • Strong Master – Steel Dumper (3 axle and 4 axle)
  • Weight Master – Aluminium Dumper
  • Curtain Master – Curtain Sider (with optional dropside)
  • Dropside Master – Dropside
  • Dry Master – Dry Van (2 axle and 3 axle)

New MAN in Euro Truck Simulator 2

SCS Software this week added the new MAN TG3 TGX as a driveable truck in Euro Truck Simulator 2.

As usual it arrives with a select choice of configurations and customizations. This includes 3 cabin sizes (GN, GM, GX), 6 chassis types (4×2, 6×2, 6×4, and 8×4), 8 transmissions, and 9 engine options up to 640hp. There is also quite a number of customizations available for it, where maybe the most interesting is the option to use the MAN OptiView digital mirror system. This makes it only the second truck in the game after the latest DAF truck able to use digital camera mirros instead of classic outside mounted mirrors. In the MAN’s case it also comes with a blindspot detector accessory with new functionality as well as the option to display the front digital mirror on the infotainment screen.

ETS2 Update 1.47

The 1.47 update for Euro Truck Simulator 2 has been released and features some bug fixes, a redesign of the user interface which now shows more details about your company, some new gameplay additions – It is now possible to buy your own gas cistern and livestock trailers – as well as the continued rework of German cities. This time it’s Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Nurnberg and Erfurt which have been completely redesigned.

A more general implementation is the new Uneven Surface Simulation – small bumps are procedurally generated to give roads and other terrains an imperfect feel to them. While they may not be visible to the driver, you will be able to feel these subtle bumps and in some cases hear them affect your vehicle whilst driving.

Among other new things introduced with the update is the possibility for Adaptive Cruise Control and Emergency Braking System. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts the distance and speed from the vehicle in front when in cruise control mode. This is especially handy when encountering a busy highway, where you may find traffic often merging into a gap in front of you, or in situations where traffic speed is constantly changing. The Emergency Braking System for its part activates your brakes whenever a collision is imminent with the vehicle in front, to avoid or minimize damage. This technology in the real world has saved countless lives and is found in most modern trucks.

There has also been a rethink when it comes to how the necessary reset after a game update functions. Whenever the player’s economy is reset during a game load, it was the norm for you to be teleported to your HQ garage. From now on you will instead be offered a free quick travel to any service station of your choice after a game change was detected.

Happy Hauloween

Hauloween – SCS Software’s latest World of Trucks event – is in full swing and as usual those little trinkets one can get pulled me in. So let’s have some nice photos from the latest Corsica trip.

The benefit of a nighttime start is that you get to experience the first sunrays rise over the Mediterranian while transporting whatever is in the spooky trailer.

Yum. Borat’s pizza…
I must admit this is an interesting delivery place. Why a slipway? Am I hauling Halloween things that are supposed to be put to sea? Does the delivery papers say “Customer: Davy Jones” or something?
