  • Pink Ribbon Charity Event: Conclusion
    by Carthoo on 8th November 2019 at 5:00 pm

    Inspired by truck manufacturers and truckers from around the world, this month of October we joined the international Pink Ribbon campaign and we asked you, our community, to take part and support this great cause by delivering Pink Ribbon goods across Europe and America in our World of Trucks event.We also created a Pink Ribbon Charity Pack DLC for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator with the intention for all the proceeds to go to reputable Breast Cancer research and awareness charities dedicated to fighting this disease, to give you an option to do a good thing and get ting a little reward for it.The Pink Ribbon Charity event concluded on Sunday the 20th of October, and we have to say that it was an incredible success! We could not have wished for a better response from the community. The first week saw us all reach massive 730,000 deliveries and the final numbers were…well see for yourselves!Almost 70,000 players reached their personal goal with an average of 3,314 personal goals achieved every day. Wow, that’s an average of more than 55,000 deliveries per day with a final delivery count of nearly 1.2 million, well over and above our community goal of 1 million deliveries.And, while educating and spreading the word was even more important than attending the event this time, we’re happy to say the numbers were really tremendous there too! Just check them out:So again, a big thank you to every single person from our #BestCommunityEver who joined in and shared a screenshot or video under the #PinkMyTruck hashtag!It was also great to see other companies raising awareness like NHS England and MetLife, running unique donation campaigns, like Chevrolet or generally bringing more attention to this important theme, like Renault Trucks, MAN Trucks & Bus, DAF Trucks, Mack Trucks , Scania Group and many others.Thanks to you, our community, we were able to collect much more than what we initially expected – over 45K US Dollars! So, we’ve decided to split that amount to include more than the initial two charities that were announced – Breast Cancer Research Foundation (US) and Alliance of Women with Breast Cancer (CZ). The first of the new beneficiaries is Breast Cancer Germany (DE), with more to follow from our shortlist.For us, one of the best parts of the event was a visit from representatives of the Czech Rep based charity, Alliance of Women with Breast Cancer (Aliance žen s rakovinou prsu). They explained to us their supportive role, their experiences with patients, and the symptoms of breast cancer, including a hands-on self-examination tutorial. We learnt quite a few things that we didn’t know before and it was great to hear how much our #BestCommunityEver’s donation will help. We can’t stress enough how important it is to do regular self-exams and to seek a full doctor check-up in case of any suspicions.If you somehow missed the event but still want to donate, don’t worry, you can! Both charity packs will stay on Steam and Humble Bundle, and their sales will remain 100% dedicated to funding reputable Breast Cancer charities. Every time a sufficient amount is collected, we’re going to send it to a charity dedicated to Breast Cancer research, awareness and patient support.https://store.steampowered.com/app/1068290/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2__Pink_Ribbon_Charity_Pack/https://store.steampowered.com/app/1162160/American_Truck_Simulator__Pink_Ribbon_Charity_Pack/

  • American Truck Simulator Update 1.36
    by Timmy the Duck Thief on 5th November 2019 at 1:42 pm

    You saw what’s coming (that’s right – Utah is almost here!) and you know what needs to come before – American Truck Simulator Update 1.36 is here!And before we get to the details, we’d like to thank every single one of you for all your help – with your bug reports, opinions and general feedback during the Public Beta. While the changelog isn’t as big as the previous one, the system changes are huge and the impacts unpredictable in some parts of our game so your help was vital in catching all the major issues.The most important change is the upgrade to DirectX 11, which allows us to drop DirectX 9 completely and the limitations it presented. Public Beta feedback shows that most of our players have enjoyed a nice FPS increase. Since our game’s minimum requirements for Windows already support DX11, we do hope you’ll all enjoy the improved performance.Besides that, you’ll get three new trailers, some map improvements and rebuilds, plus a nice number of new features, including a long-requested feature for drivers, trucks and trailers to be visible on the manager map!For those wishing to see a more detailed changelog, please read the Public Beta article, or check out our changelog video!To enjoy Update 1.36, make sure to OPT OUT of beta branches and your game will be automatically updated on Steam.Some mods, however, may not have been updated yet – this update can effectively break them; remember that you can always stay on 1.35 or an even older branch. Follow these instructions to access and select them: Steam client → LIBRARY → right-click on American Truck Simulator → Properties → Betas tab → select the version you want.Also, check our modding wiki[modding.scssoft.com] to get details pertaining to mods for the game.Changelog:MAP Santa Cruz (CA) revamped Flagstaff (AZ) revamped California speed limit improvements Oregon and New Mexico speed limit and general sign improvements New Special Transport routes (Utah DLC)VEHICLES Grain hopper trailer (ownable) Bulk feed trailer (ownable) Frac-tank trailerFEATURES Avoid pins for GPS navigation New AI vehicles + all police paint jobs corrected Drivers / Trucks / Trailer visible on manager map DirectX 11 full support (DirectX 9 removed) Chinese and other non-Latin character input (IME) Anti-aliasing improvements (SMAA, electric-wires) New loading screensMOD Sun profile changes (HDR) License plate changes for AI (data-driven types, background texture data) Dashboard display UI elements (digital gauges, fuel consumption bar) Map editor history (undo/redo) Continuous selection of nodeshttps://store.steampowered.com/app/1104880/American_Truck_Simulator__Utah/

  • Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.36
    by Carthoo on 3rd December 2019 at 1:28 pm

    Road to the Black Sea is approaching fast so it’s time to close the Beta and move on to the next best thing! Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.36 is out now!As always, we’d like to thank every single one of you for all your help with your bug reports, opinions and general feedback during the Public Beta. This time, the update brings probably the biggest system change we have ever implemented, together with some nice features.The main feature is the upgrade to DirectX 11, which allowed the complete removal of support for DirectX 9 and all its limitations. While it may need a little tweak here and there, general feedback is very positive (FPS increase, smoother gameplay, better long-range LOD behaviours) as we hoped, since listed minimum requirements for Windows already support DX11.And to spice things up a bit (as “invisible” changes aren’t as appreciated as they should be), there are two bigger features and a number of smaller ones.Corsica, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean is now available to all existing and future owners of the Vive la France ! map expansion as a free addition.Detours are also coming to Euro Truck Simulator 2 after a long testing period in its American twin. Do tell us[forum.scssoft.com] if it’s ok as it is, or what adjustments you’d like us to make still.Besides that, you’ll get a number of other nice features – such as a long-requested feature for drivers, trucks and trailers to be visible on the manager map, avoidance pins for your GPS and more. For those wishing to see a more detailed changelog, please read the Public Beta article, or check out our changelog video!To enjoy the 1.36 update, make sure to OPT OUT of beta branches and your game will be automatically updated on Steam.Some mods, however, may have not caught up yet – this update may effectively break them. So remember that you can always stay on 1.35 or an even older branch. The way to access and select them is: Steam client → LIBRARY → right-click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 → Properties → Betas tab → select the version you want.Also, check our modding wiki[modding.scssoft.com] to get details pertaining to mods for the game.Changelog:MAP Corsica (Vive la France ! DLC)FEATURES Detours Avoidance navigation pins New AI vehicles Drivers / Trucks / Trailer visible on manager maps DX11 full support (DX9 removed) Chinese and other non-Latin character input (IME) Anti-aliasing improvements (SMAA, electrical wires) Improved Tobii support and configuration pageMOD Sun profile changes (HDR) LP changes for AI (data-driven types, background texture data) Dash display UI elements (digital gauges, fuel consumption bar) Map editor history (undo/redo) Continuous selection of nodes

  • Road to the Black Sea: Trains & Tram
    by Carthoo on 26th November 2019 at 5:10 pm

    There’s a theme from Road to the Black Sea we didn’t touch on yet – and you can probably guess what it is from the pictures.The regions seen here are a beautiful mix of the old & the new, and so are the different kinds of rail transport that pass through these areas. They really give every city a different kind of living atmosphere, don’t you think?We’ve picked the cities of Cluj, Galati, Iasi and Timișoara to show you the differences. Anyone here able to say which picture belongs to what city? 🙂
