We are happy to announce that the 1.46 update for Euro Truck Simulator 2 has been released and is now available on Steam. This update features bug fixes, changes and new content, which are featured below, so we recommend taking a read!
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, provided their feedback, and made bug reports during the 1.46 Open Beta. Your valuable input helped us make tweaks, changes and smash some bugs we may have missed the first time around. We hope you can now begin to fully enjoy the fruit of your work.
There’s a brand new feature for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. It is something that we’ve been working on for quite a while. Gallery is a new feature that contains a management solution for all images, photo trophies, and discovered viewpoints, while maintaining all legacy functionality of the Screenshot Manager.
Perhaps the most intriguing part awaits you with the addition of "Photo Trophies". You will be able to find these locations thanks to new map icons and capture them via Photo Mode. We have developed a new tracking system that will pop up whenever your camera will face the landmark using the mode.
Within Gallery you will also find Viewpoints, which not only offers a way for the player to be guided towards any undiscovered viewpoints but also serves as a platform for reviewing those which have already been discovered and played, allowing the player to view them again.
Finally, Gallery offers a fresh clean layout for previewing, sorting, and uploading your images to your World of Trucks Gallery and Profile truck slots. There's so many more little other features to explore and find in the Gallery, which we wrote a dedicated blogpost about recently!
If you'd like to learn more, head on over to it's dedicated blogpost which can be found here.
An exciting new feature for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator in the 1.46 update is the Company Browser. This new in-game browser allows players to search for specific types of companies, cargoes and/or trailer types. This means that if you are waiting for any of the examples mentioned in the previous sentence, you can easily check if such a thing even exists within the game!
So, if you are curious about which cargo you can theoretically haul for example between London and Madrid or even Calais to Duisburg, the company browser will achieve just that!
We look forward to seeing you use this new feature, as we know it will prove helpful for a lot of drivers! Let us know your thoughts and feedback on our social media channels and forums.
Ownable Cisterns - Chemical Trailers
Today we are happy to share with you the next addition to our ownable cistern collection, Chemical Trailers!
These tankers are designed to transport a variety chemicals including acidic, toxic or corrosive liquid products. These cargo types include Hydrochloric Acid, Sulfuric Acid, Pesticides, Mercuric Chloride and more; so careful driving is highly recommended.
The ETS2 Cistern includes 2 chassis types (2 axle, 3 axle, single chain) and 2 body types (chrome or paintable) along with a similar variety of customisations and accessories which include:
Custom City Intros - Iberia
- Chassis type
- Paintjobs (base and DLC)
- Rear bumpers
- and other accessories such as hoses, water tanks, extinguishers etc)
Recently, we introduced a new experimental feature in ETS2 and ATS - the custom city introductions. Thanks to the positive feedback that we have seen from the community, we are glad to let you know that we will further expand this feature in this update!
These special cutscenes appear when a player selects a starting city when creating a new profile and, as you may know, they are currently available only for cities of Austria and the city of Hanover in Euro Truck Simulator 2. However, in this update, this feature can now also be found in the Iberia DLC.
So, what do you think? Should we keep working on the custom city introductions? If so, let us know!
Iberia Map Update
You may have noticed while driving across the Iberia DLC that there is a well-designed unreachable area near Madrid. We have decided to take the time and finish this settlement, which is inspired by the city of Arganda del Rey and it will feature the company prefab of Construcciones Elcano, a new heavy machinery service depot that made its first appearance in the Austria rework project.
While you were previously able to only drive around this zone on a nearby highway, with the addition of the settlement, we are also going to open up the closest highway exit so you can properly set out to explore this fresh piece of content.
We hope you enjoy checking out this new part of the Iberia DLC! Read more about this update at one of our previously dedicated blogposts.
Iberian Regional Signs
Traffic signs are an essential part of keeping both drivers and pedestrians using the road safe and informed with valuable information; such as where you are! In this update, the Iberia DLC will be receiving new road region signage.
Our map team has been hard at work implementing these familiar green and red region signs across the peninsula to help guide drivers in the right direction; and to assure them (and their GPS) that they are going the right way.
So whether you're heading to Madrid or València, you really have no excuse of getting lost now. We hope you enjoy the new signage on your travels through this unique part of Europe. We'd love to see your screenshots and videos too! Be sure to share them with us on our social media channels.
We are always doing our best to make the trucking experience within our games as realistic as possible, and that is exactly the reason why this new addition, which can be turned on in the settings, is arriving into the world of ETS2. This feature simulates the spinning of the chassis during acceleration, which results in a slight lift of the front left wheel. We hope you enjoy this new and realistic addition in this update!
