Thoughts on a "Ultra Realistic Mode"

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Truckers,

A couple of days ago something crossed my mind which i hope that SCS is implementing at some point even though chances are very low.

If you think about it, your always in and with your Truck in ATS and ETS. You spend the whole Game Time in your Cabin.

But what if things like Mechanical Repairs could be done in the Workshops or even the Garages ? I know we have Damage but like, in a way where you actually break a part and it needs to be fixed.

Also, maybe Oilchange intervals and that its possible, if Seasons gets implemented that you got to change Tires.

I always look at the Dashboard of my Truck and somehow you really dont need to worry about anything exept your fuel and the brake pressure. 

Mechanical Failures could also be realistic at some point.

They could make it optional just like the Rain and Road Events so people can decide if they want more Realism or just the way its been before.

 

What are your thoughts on that ? Its just something which i think could be fun. :)

That would be nice , but I dont think SCS will add something like this very soon. Maybe sometimes in the future.

It's a good idea,^_^ but it depends a lot on SCS to develop.;) Not sure but I think you can send suggestions to the SCS developer team, I do not know.:P

Maybe it was suggested already but ill give it a try and look if i can send them the ideas. :)

It would be nice, but scs might not do it :)

I welcome every suggestion and attempt with the goal to increase realism.
Though I doubt that the truck manufacturers would agree to randomly occuring system failures of their trucks, I think it would be a challenging and nice feature to have.

What about for example a burst tire? That is a common sight on highways.

While it would be nice to have a mode like this, I doubt we'll see it anytime soon. SCS have made their future updates over the next 6 months pretty clear, but maybe we'll see something in the future.

OP was talking about nice things SCS could add, so this is definately about SCS and not tmp.

What SCS should definitely add sooner or later is the aging of vehicles: Even with outstanding care, a truck is simply worn out at some point.

 

If you compare a brand new truck and one with 2 million kilometers on the speedometer, you will not see any differences ingame.

 

If you did that in real life, you would notice differences in handling, performance, and fuel consumption.

This has always been on my mind and many other peoples minds. Most of us have been calling for these features a long time ago but fall of deaf ears.

 

I want them to let us jump out of the truck and do as you said change tyres if you have puncture, open the front of the truck for repairs. We should be able to get out and fasten the straps on the back of the trailer also, these things should be in the game from day 1 years ago, it's a simulator, if only my straps would automatically tighten by themselves in real life.

 

The core of the game needs a huge shakup, companies is worth nothing, there is no reason to buy companies in game because it's all flawed with you getting millions in MP. If some other developer came along to make another game which was more realistic I'd drop ETS2 like a shot.

they said it quite often now in nearly every interview ;)

 

official info: pavel sabor from scs said they want to support ets2 and ats for ever and continue to develop it. there may be a day where every country is done.. than they want to focus on making world of truck into a multiplayer.. so.. scs is still planing on a own multiplayer in the far future.

 

i think: may or may not they plan on finishing the usa and then maybe adding canada or mexico... atleast.. its "american" truck simulator.. not usa truck simulator.. maybe they have far future plans to add south american contrys too some day.. how knows i dont.. but its very logical to me. :)

No thanks, imagine in Battlefield, your gun jammed randomly for no reason. I mean yes, it would be realistic, but there needs to be a balance between fun and realistic. Do you want to get pulled over 5 times before you reach to the mechanics because your rear left brake light was broken? I don't think so.
