After turning on Steam the other day, I took at look at the list of current downloads and spotted Euro Truck Simulator 2 busy downloading an update. I sadly haven’t been able to play this engrossing game much since moving into my flat, but I wanted to keep up to date with the latest goings on and so, I headed over to the SCS Software blog. So now, I can bring you an update on the latest goings on, just take a look below the line.
On the minor end of the scale the team at SCS released an update to their community site, World of Trucks. As I haven’t played the game much recently, I in turn haven’t got to dabble with World of Trucks. If you have, please share your thoughts.
In similar fashion to the Halloween pain jobs, you can now grab some excellently crafted winter themed paint jobs on Steam for less than two quid. While the team are busy working on the overhaul to AI drivers and the physics engine, they have released patch 1.8 to the wild. This update brings in the Scania Steamline to the game.
Perhaps the biggest bit of news is that soon a new suite of mod tools for the game will be released. While there isn’t a firm timeline just yet, SCS have confirmed they are working on SCS Blender Tools for the game. These are based on the Blender toolkit but will be tweaked to work with Euro Truck Sim 2. They are promised to be “developer grade” tools which will allow fans to make new buildings along with trucks. It should be exciting.
