As SCS Software proceed so as to add to Europe with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (the following growth focuses on the Baltics), older components are beginning to look a bit scrappy. The newest replace added more life to its roads however now SCS are considering greater. They’re at present engaged on revamping Germany for a free replace overhauling its autobahns, touching up its cities, replanting its forests, and customarily making it a nicer place to relax out. This course of will take a while however SCS as we speak shared just a few peeks on the spectacular enhancements. They’ll overhaul extra international locations later too.
SCS mentioned in today’s blost post that they’ve “a small but passionate team of map designers” engaged on refreshing base recreation’s map “to bring it up to or at least close to our current standard of visual quality”. The oldest areas being essentially the most run-down, they’re beginning with expensive ol’ Deutschland.
Here, try this stretch of autobahn because it at present stands:
And the way it’ll look post-fancification:
Wunderbar! The weblog publish has extra pictures to coo over too.
“As you can see in the screenshots, the touches to the German autobahns are considerable,” SCS say. “Some cities are altered in a major way, some will only get a bit of polish for now with new textures, vegetation, and cleanups of the worst visual sins.”
They are nonetheless engaged on new expansions for each Euro Truck and American Truck, thoughts, so that they’ll want a separate staff for this. And it gained’t be fast. Germany’s overhaul alone shall be cut up throughout a number of updates, and with their plan “to eventually revisit the whole of core game map”… fairly some time.
I’d guess that the UK may be subsequent in line for a refresh, because it’s one other transplant from a fair older recreation. ETS2’s Germany and UK had been largely introduced over from German Truck Simulator and UK Truck Simulator, see, so that they’re the oldest areas of the map.
I’m glad they’re doing this. If gross sales allow them to hold updating Europe without end, again and again, hey go wild. They do hold including and overhauling the gameguts and I’ll take everlasting renewal and growth over shopping for sequels which might virtually inevitably be smaller. Consider how bizarre it all the time feels when a brand new Civilization sequel arrives, feeling slight in comparison with its heavily-expanded predecessor.
