  1. Graphics in Euro Truck simulator 2 is not bad, considering how old the engine already is, but I'm missing a few little things that would be easy for the SCS to fix. Let's begin with a comparison with the ATS. If you've ever drove in ATS at night, you might have noticed that you can actually see all the signs from distance. It's because they are made from reflective material, like in real life. Problem is, that in ETS2 most of them (except Baltic DLC maps) are not. Some direction signs, especially in Germany, have at least letters reflective, but what about all those STOPs, speed limits and so on, that you need to see from distance? Well, these signs are as old as the game itself, and as you can see in the Toast's video above, the game's graphics significantly improved over time, but signs didn't. So, for now, we can just hope SCS will remake them. Second thing that needs improvement are light masks (they control the shape of your light's beam). At this moment all trucks in both games use the same light mask. So it basically doesn't matter at all whether you use old Renault with poor halogen lights, or a brand new Volvo with xenon (or Scania with LEDs). The only thing that changes is the color of the lights. Surprisingly for some of you, this problem is incredibly easy to fix, I actually made my personal mod with different lightmasks for different trucks. Problem is that mods can't be used in multiplayer (which I generally don't mind at all). That brings us to last but not least flaw - high beams... which I don't use at all. High beams are meant to let you see more, but have you ever seen a vehicle with high beams so strong, that they light the surroundings up brighter than the sun? I did, but only in this simulator game. Even if I try to compare all the new expensive cars with Matrix LED, or even Laser beams, a stock Ets2 truck without any additional lights beats them all. Does that seem realistic to you? As you can see, all issues I mentioned here are related to lightning. After all I wrote you might feel that I don't like Ets2 or Ats, but I do, a lot. Lightning is, from my point of view, generally the hardest thing to get right. Many newer and much more expensive games have even more serious flaws, so both Ats and Ets2, even though they need some updates, have lightning tuned quite well. And there's always something to fix after all, right?
  2. If you mean standard double trailers, as visible on the picture below, you don't need any mods. There are two options to get them. Either buy them or get a job with them. For both options, you need Scandinavia DLC (or you need to wait for the 1.35 update that should bring doubles to Germany and The Netherlands). If you have Scandinavia DLC, then you can buy a double trailer (but only if you have a garage in one of the Scandinavian countries) and drive with it everywhere on the map (except parts of map limited by TruckersMP).
  3. At 17 (like half an year ago), now having a "proper" excercires that a private (ok, not private, but psst) road and a parking lot could give me.
  4. Using a wireless controller with low battery in dense traffic on a C-D road.
  5. Hello everyone, I've been riding with Skoda superb a lot recently and I've noticed a few thing that need to be modifiend a little. Here's a small list of those things: 1. Engine RPMs - why is a maximum rpm value for a petrol engine 5500 while red line a way higher? And why is the torque curve set the way I lose most power after 4000 RPMs? 2. Transmission shifting - when I have the game set to automatic shifting and I press the pedal to the metal, RPMs go to maximum and it takes another few seconds and then the transmission finally shifs. Simply terrible. 3. Automatic transmission -First of all, when you set the game to the automatic shifting and you use the default transmission, it's NOT automatic transmission, just automated - and that's a huge difference, because the shifting times are so long, so it's a pity that there's no automatic transmission yet 4. This one is not that important, but it would be nice to get it right - the mirror in the middle could use some sort of a zoom, because I don't want to see my seat :D So that's hopefuly all I don't like about this car and I'd love to see these things fixed. Thanks for hearing me out! PS: I know I didn't follow the request format, but I think that these things should be together, since they are about a single vehicle :).
