  1. Hello everyone, Yes, I am asking something slightly specific and technical, but have you ever wondered if the side skirts on the side of trailers are mandatory or not? Because I did, and I can't find a solution on the internet. Please help me. And while we are on this topic, what are their purpose? I think it might be with cyclists, but correct me if I'm wrong. I'll put a picture of a side skirt in case you still don't understand what I'm talking about.
  2. Behold! My barely road legal premium with rusting rims, except one axle on the trailer that has new wheels but they actually fit horribly because that's all the company had lol. It's meant to be a Bulgarian standard freight hauler which travels between the balkans and southern parts of Russia.
  3. I think it is more likely to have something from Renault rather than IVECO. If you go Instagram for example, the Renault page has an entire Story dedicated to ETS2 whereas IVECO doesn't even mention ETS2 once (at least visibly) on their page. Simply put, SCS and IVECO have a pretty bad relationship compared to other brands like SCANIA or DAF.
  4. Update: Time is up! The results are here and were indeed in favour of tighter roads. You can click here to see the raw data. I have also spent the week working on the suggestion for tighter roads that uses the data from the survey. On this thread, you will be able to see the entire case on tight roads in ETS2. From the arguments, to an actual maquette of a DLC that could contain tighter roads along with all its benefits for SCS and the community... Thanks again for the support from each of you!

  6. I have made an answer for each comment, so find the one where you are tagged. @Zysto This kind of collaboration would be a game changer. The two could really complement each other just like some sort of symbiosis. Thanks for bringing in the link @TheCanadianTrucker. The reason given in the blog post was to be expected... However, it was back in 2011. More than 9 years ago. The game has evolved, the community along with it, and ETS2 back then was just a conglomerate between UK Truck Simulator, German Truck Simulator, and some pieces of land around these two countries. Today, we have 6 map expansions that have steadily increased in quality since the Going East DLC. Along with better, more detailed and faithful maps, we have had more challenges presented to us. For example: The twisty Norwegian roads, the remote areas to access some quarries in Italy, the HCT doubles in Finland, the intricate road layout of Istanbul... I, personally, have rejoiced over these new challenges, and hope for the same regarding the community. Now, I think that ETS2 should evolve towards something new, with a newer kind of challenge and a new scale for some places, using tighter roads that feel more remote or city-like. And to do that, we need to find a middle ground that will satisfy both the drivers that want a new challenge with tight roads and drivers with difficulties to stay between the lines which are mostly newer players. In order to do that, I’ve made the survey so that we can see what most people think, along with ideas on how to implement tight roads. The ultimate goal is to bring tighter roads in ETS2 while satisfying most or all players, and of course, SCS (financially). On the survey, you will find a proposition for a second stage map expansion which would focus on tighter and more faithful roads. This idea comes along with the idea of satisfying most players. Because newer, struggling players, with less initial interest in the game tend to only buy the base game, it would keep them away from these frustrating tight roads, until they get better and more interested in challenges. On top of that, this could give a new opportunity for SCS to release more premium content for the future, ranging form the map extension, to city hyper center designed trailers or rigids? That was a long speech, but I hope this brought something useful to the discussion. @Granite, I am mostly talking about city roads, country roads, field paths or private paths. I agree that highways are mostly acceptable, but I have seen extremely tight lanes on city highways (Around Paris notably, see attached picture). Thanks for pointing at the AI. It is undoubtedly dated for 2020 standards and will, without a doubt struggle and frustrate players even more with tight roads. However, there are some quick fixes and AI mechanics that already exist in the game like or should be relatively easy to implement: Way less traffic on tight roads and / or only cars without trailers so that they don’t interfere with each other. This idea could be applied in remote areas of the countryside or city hyper centers. If only cars can drive in a certain place, it means that their predefined paths on the map can be adapted to be more realistic. If there are choke points or chicanes, basic priority rules are applied, they just have to be clear with signs so the player isn’t too confused. Vehicles can already move over the side of their lane. You can see this while transporting an oversize cargo. This could be applied on tight roads where only one car and the player can fit. If all these aren’t enough, the size of the player’s truck might need to be decreased. Perhaps rigids will have their importance? Thanks for reading, hope I brought something useful.
  7. Hello everyone, As a decently experienced player, I tend to seek more challenging and realistic environments. One thing that has always bugged me down is the width of roads. You can almost fit two trucks in one lane! Quite unrealistic for European road standards. I know what you are going to answer to my question: 'It would be unplayable for some players.' (Notably newer players who struggle to stay in their lane). But that is simply an assumption. So, in order to obtain a clearer answer for my question, I have made a survey with a couple of questions which won't take more than 3 minutes to complete. I promise! The data gathered from your answers will not only allow me to get a better answer to my question, but also understand the needs of the community around the width of the roads. If the knowledge extracted from this survey happens to highlight a need for tighter roads, I will make more research in order to make a well structured and documented suggestion on the official SCS forum using the data of the survey. You will be able to view the result after answering the survey. It is anonymous, yes, despite the fact it asks about your e-mail address, it is just to make sure you don't answer multiple times. The link to the survey: https://forms.gle/PQjRFNKjV8wgqUqw7 Thank you for your precious time, have a nice day. Edit: Time is up! The results are here and were indeed in favour of tighter roads. You can click on the link above to see the raw data. I have also spent the week working on the suggestion for tighter roads that uses the data from the survey. On this thread, you will be able to see the entire case on tight roads in ETS2.

  8. Indeed, that was my main concern, players misusing banners, beacons and plates do ruin the fun with realism. While the idea of the banners, or plates appearing on your truck when you take a trailer or cargo is a good one, it is unclear whether SCS will use this system or the one talked about in my post. Main reason being that both exist in ATS or ETS2. For example, in ATS, you can put an 'oversize load' banner on you truck while hauling regular cargo. But if your own a trailer and haul hazardous cargo, an ADR plate will appear. Perhaps a hybrid could be implemented where the player can choose where the ADR plate / banner should be placed when hauling hazardous or oversize cargo, or give the player the ability to put a folded ADR/TIR plate on its truck.
  9. Hello kind stranger, It might seem weird to you because yes, this post is about promoting another post, but it's for the common good, so hear me out. Basically, I've submitted a suggestion on the official SCS forum. It is about implementing TIR plates, ADR plates on trucks and much more such as 'Exceptional convoy' banners and signs as customization. I need your help because these kinds of suggestions need a lot of support from the community in order to be considered by SCS. In order to do that you can provide support by voting in the poll and commenting in the post that will be linked. If you don't have much time, just click the link, look at the big writing and pictures and cast your vote. Now, you might ask yourself: Why should I help your suggestion in particular? This is fully understandable, so I have compiled a list of reasons so you can make up your mind. 1. It is a very easy implementation to the game. Most of what I ask in the thread already exists in ETS2 or ATS but are not available as proper customization. Moreover, these small additions can add a gigantic amount of detail and realism to your trucks. 2. Unlike most posts in the same section of the SCS forum, I have spent the last couple of days documenting and working on the subject so you can envision most of my thoughts. 3. Your votes actually have their importance. Indeed, some popular suggestions have, in the past, made it into the game thanks to community suggestions. Link to the forum thread: https://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=286748 Note that I am not asking for a positive opinion, but only your honest opinion. The poll and comments are here to determine what the ETS2 community thinks of the suggestion, so we can provide a useful addition to the rest of the community. Thanks for your time, happy trucking! Note to the mods: I have read the rules 3 times, and I am almost certain this post doesn't break any rules. If I do, I'm terribly sorry and will live the rest of my life in utter shame.
  10. Happy Birthday!
