ETS2: Low-bed & Low-loader Trailers
American Truck Simulator is not the only title that will receive an update to its lowboy trailers. We are happy to share that low-bed & low-loader trailers in Euro Truck Simulator 2 will also be receiving a complete refresh in the next 1.39 update!

Image

You would be dead wrong if you thought we just took our former trailers and enabled trailer ownership by flicking a magic switch. We actually had to "throw them away" and make new ones. These new low-bed & loader trailers (also those from Schwarzmüller DLC!) have gone through a complete overhaul and will now offer drivers a ton of new customization options.

Image

Image

Low-bed and low-loader trailers now come in two main versions - short and extended, plus they now have customizable chasses which can affect their suitability for heavy cargoes. You will now also be able to adjust and tune them up with multiple new options like colours, rear bumpers and banners, markers, lights, ramps, side protectors, multiple versions of side/tool boxes, beacons, strobes, mudflaps, and more! Every single one of these new options had to be adjusted properly for each of these new trailers, to be sure that they fit perfectly!

Image

Image

You can probably imagine that behind-the-scenes, a lot of hard work went into these trailers to ensure they will run smoothly with other parts and cargoes in Euro Truck Simulator 2. All 37 visual cargoes that are transportable on the original trailers went through some modifications to work well with the new and redesigned trailers. Our 3D graphic artists had to even completely rework some of the cargoes (e.g. the milling machine and some of the excavators); other cargoes had to be adjusted, moved, and retouched to fit perfectly on every single one of these new trailers. That means that each of these cargoes had to be created in multiple versions, as there are around 130 possible combinations. After this, we also had to adjust all the elements that secured the cargo to the trailer. This meant that all the chains, straps, and more needed some attention too!

Image

However, this revamp does not only concern the trailer and cargo models. Everything is interconnected with many other elements, which meant that besides revisiting our in-game economy data, weight limits had to be adjusted, trailers' load capacity had to be checked, even surrounding and intro cutscenes from our Special Transport DLC had to be re-worked to match all the changes that were done on the cargoes and trailers. This major update affects not only the base game of ETS2, but also a lot of other DLCs such as the Heavy Cargo Pack, High Power Cargo Pack, or the already-mentioned Schwarzmüller Trailer Pack and Special Transport.

Image

Image

All in all, a lot of work from our vehicle team went into bringing you these trailers, and we couldn't be more excited to finally share this update with you, as well as to get your amazing help to make it all perfect in the open-beta for this upcoming update.

Image

So when will you get the chance to own and drive these new and updated low-bed and low-loader trailers for yourself? In our next 1.39 update of course! Stay tuned for more news here on our official blog. But until then, stay safe and keep on truckin'.

Iberia: Fruit, Crops & Farms

The growing of fresh fruit and vegetables is an important industry for Spain and Portugal, so much so that both countries are among some of the largest producers and exporters in Europe. From oranges to avocados, Iberia provides the ideal growing conditions and space for farms to grow a wide variety of crops, fruits, and vegetables.

Image

In our upcoming Iberia DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2, drivers will have the opportunity to transport and deliver a variety of equipment and produce within this important industry sector across Spain and Portugal.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Iberia will also feature newly created prefabs to represent the wide variety of different farms that can be found in Iberia including large commercial farms and vineyards. However, there is one type of farm that may catch your eye on your travels.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Found largely concentrated in the south-east of Spain, are areas of farmland largely covered by white plastic greenhouses. This type of intensive farming has become increasingly popular across Iberia, as farmers can create ideal growing conditions in otherwise very dry and hot areas of the peninsula to grow vegetables and fruit.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at this important industry in Iberia and we look forward to sharing even more images and development updates in the near future. ¿Estás emocionado por Iberia? Help support the release of this upcoming DLC by adding it to your Steam Wishlist, we thank you for your support!

I got a feeling map expansions might be closing in since this will be out of the way soon

Euro Truck Simulator 2 1.39 Update Open Beta

Following up on the announcement of the Experimental Open Beta for American Truck Simulator, we are happy to announce the arrival of the 1.39 Open Beta for Euro Truck Simulator 2 which includes various improvements, fixes, and new content.

Image

It will still take at least several weeks before the full 1.39 release, so please keep in mind that this is the first open beta iteration and it is very much still a work-in-progress build that will receive updates throughout the open beta period.

Please note that users who operate on Linux or MacOS may experience a more unstable version of the 1.39 Open Beta and is considered more experimental at this time.

If you want to take it for a spin, you can help contribute by reporting any bugs you may encounter at the appropriate section of our official forums. Your feedback and reports are extremely valuable for our team and we thank you in advance for taking the time to help us out.

So, what can you expect to find in the 1.39 Open Beta for ETS2? Let's take a closer look!

LAUNCHPAD UPDATE

One of the first things you may notice when you launch Euro Truck Simulator 2 with the 1.39 Open Beta is a redesign of the current launchpad. The main reason why we are introducing this change is to pave the way for a future addition, which will introduce new features to our games that are accessed through the launchpad.

Image

Until then, however, you can see that the design has changed quite significantly. The profile selected at the top now affects all other options and managers found on the launchpad. This applies not only to the Mod Manager but especially to the new addition which we have placed here, Game Options.

This allows you to change your game settings without even having to load the game. So if you're just looking to tweak your game before streaming on Twitch or adjusting a few options before heading into your truck, it can all be done from the launchpad screen.

This is just the first iteration of the Launchpad design which is subject to changes and tuning throughout the Open Beta period. If you have any feedback to give about this design, please let us know at our official forum category.

LOW-BED & LOW-LOADER TRAILERS
As we previously announced in a recent blog, new Lowbed & Low-Loader Trailers will be arriving at Euro Truck Simulator 2. These trailers have been reworked from the ground up, offering drivers the option to purchase them and use them in an array of different jobs including High Power Cargo Pack, and the Heavy Cargo DLC's.

Image

Low-bed and low-loader trailers now come in two main versions - short and extended, plus they now have customizable chassis which can affect their suitability for heavy cargoes. You will now also be able to adjust and tune them up with multiple new options like colors, rear bumpers, and banners, markers, lights, ramps, side protectors, multiple versions of side/toolboxes, beacons, strobes, mud-flaps, and more! Every single one of these new options had to be adjusted properly for each of these new trailers, to be sure that they fit perfectly!

This major update affects not only the base game of ETS2, but also a lot of other DLCs such as the Heavy Cargo Pack, High Power Cargo Pack, Schwarzmüller DLC, and Special Transport.

CITY OF CALAIS RESKIN
Introducing the port of Calais, the fourth-largest port in France and the busiest for passenger traffic. Its industry accounts for more than a third of economic activity in the local area. As many of you may know, Calais is one of our base game cities which was released with Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Image

As such, a dedicated part of our map team has taken time to give the city and port a major reskin, giving it a fresh and up-to-date look for 1.39. The biggest change you will notice is how the port is now represented in-game. In reality, Calais port is huge and so our map team has worked hard to best reflect that reality within the confines of our map scale. This newly recreated port will feature new assets including gates, terminals, ramps for ferries, and fences.

Image

Image

Image
Other changes include updates to the port entrance and surrounding city areas which have been redesigned to correspond more correctly to reality now. You can read more in detail about this free update to Calais in this blogpost.

GENERAL BUG FIXES/SOUND CHANGES
1.39 also features various bug fixes, improvements, and an update to sounds. This includes, but is not limited to, improved interior cab sound mixing and other changes in preparation for new and upcoming content.

While a majority of the changes in 1.39 are not seen visually in this version, we look forward to bringing you more content and changes in the near future.

CHANGELOG
MAP

City of Calais re-skin
UI
Launchpad redesigned
VEHICLES

Lowbed and low-loader trailers (ownable)
Schwarzmuller low-loader (ownable) for the Schwarzmuller DLC
DAF XF 2017 Facelift added to AI vehicles

FEATURES

Sound updates and improvements (turbo slider, sound positioning, cabin spatial mixing, sound distribution to accessories)

So enjoy all the new additions, but please remember: It's only an open beta, not a stable public version - so you may encounter bugs, instability, kinks, or crashes. It's completely okay if you want to wait for the final release. But if you're interested in helping us to get there faster, we'll appreciate all of your feedback on our forum and your bug reports in this section.

Please check our modding wiki to get details pertaining to mods for the game.


If you wish to participate in the open beta, you can find this version in the public_beta branch on Steam. The way to access it is as follows: Steam client → LIBRARY → right-click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 → Properties → Betas tab → public_beta → Public Beta 1.39. No password required.
