The Euro Truck Simulator 2 thread!
« on: January 06, 2014, 09:37:02 PM »

This is the thread for all things Euro Truck Simulator 2! :D

Here is a handy dandy rar file of a bunch of mods I collected for the game:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60370190/euro_truck_sim_2_mods.rar

This mod pack includes

EssentialsRealLogos - Adds proper logos to cars, petrol stations and stuff in the game rather than made up ones.
Extra AI vehicles - More traffic on the road
Logo Mercedes - Adds in the Mercedes logo to the Majestic trucks in the game.
lone_HDequip - Adds real manufacturer logos to the excavators and farm machinery you see alongside the roads.
Military Cargo pack v1.3 - Adds in military cargo to the list of stuff that you can haul in the game
Orange Street Lights - Makes street light colour orange!
Painted truck traffic v1.2 - Adds real life transport company logos to the trucks you see pootling around the world as you drive.
toll gates without barriers - removes the barriers from toll gates so the extra long trailers you haul sometimes wont get caught in the toll barrier when it goes back down
railway cargo pack v1.2 (updated jan 6th)- Adds in railway cargo containers to the stuff that you haul - you also get to haul 70 tonne trains later on.
Real Interior Cam - Adjusts the cab view so it looks more realistic.
Realistic Lighting - Makes the lighting more realistic!
Realistic Physics Mod - Such Realistic Physics, many wow, such bouncy cab, amaze
Realistic Tires Mod - Adds in real world logos to the tyres from Michelin, goodyear etc
Realistic decals volvo - adds better looking logos to the new volvo truck in the game
Roadnoise Mod - Adds in more roadnoise and makes the truck cab creak a bit at high speed - included the LOW version as the HIGH version is just too damn loud!
Trailers and cargo pack v.2.2 - Yet more new stuff to haul!
Truck engine overhaul - overhauls the truck engines and adds more realistic options for truck engine power and a few chip tuned engines for higher levels
train mod - changes the look of the trains and logos to make them a bit more realistic
Volvo Blue dashboard lights - Makes the volvo dashboard glow blue at night, looks quite funky
True AI Lights - Fiddles with the car and truck headlights and makes them brighter.
Real weather - Changes the times of day for sunrise, sunset and a few other things. I think sunrise is a bit earlier, and it starts to slowly get dark around 8pm. Although its not as dark now as the game is supposed to be set in the summer.
Awesome Rain - It is quite awesome rain I do have to admit, unless the wipers are on you haven't a hope in hell of seeing anything out the window when it rains.

ENB Series Graphics HD Mod v 1.0 & Cyp Multi Mod

zzSorglosby_Icemann_texturen

XenonV7 Light Mod

Awesome multimod, really makes the game look a lot better detailed and the road textures are far better (IMO)

Map Mods

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60370190/promod.rar - ProMod - This adds in Scandinavia and a few towns around France, Germany and the UK. - quite a detailed and focused map mod, eventually they want to expand further into eastern Europe and also add in Ireland! :D - now includes Poland rebuilt (changes poland region and redesigns the roads there and adds some new towns.) and Romania Map addon - adds a few towns in Romania


https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60370190/TSM_Map_4_5_6.rar - TSM - Much larger map mod, adds in all of France, Spain, Italy, Greece and North Africa plus a bucket load of towns in Germany and central Europe, because it adds so much I feel this takes away from time spent on detailing the areas, so some of the new towns look a bit empty or just slapped together before the modders went onto adding other towns. However if you feel like taking on massively long journeys across Europe and into North Africa then this the mod for you!

Please note ProMod and TSM conflict with each other so don't play with both mods activated on the same profile - also TSM likes to faff with the profile itself, so if you do start a profile with TSM activated on it, do not add any other map mod to that particular profile. You can start another profile with a different map mod if you like.

Please also note the upcoming 1.9 patch for Euro Truck Simualtor 2 will not only fix the retarded AI traffic behaviour but will also, unfortunately, break map mods as this patch will bring in a new way of handling the map in game. Fortunately its easy to make map mods compatible with 1.9 so it will be an easy fix for the map modder and once the patch drops I will update the Promod and TSM links once they have been updated by the modders


Skins

Look at the ETS2 modding site links below for lots of skins for your trucks :D

Wintermod v5

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60370190/Wintermodv5.rar - Latest version of the winter mod - makes everything all snowy and it snows instead of rains (obviously), limited traction, slippery roads and a lower speed are a thing to be aware of with this activated especially if you also have the Realistic Physics mod activated. Also don't use any weather mods with the winter mod as it has its own weather system and sunrise/sunset times. Also do not use the winter mod with the multimod linked above as both of them clash due to texture changes.

Live_streams.sii

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60370190/live_streams.sii - I fixed some of the broken radio streams and added a bunch of new ones - just drop this into the main Euro Truck Sim 2 folder in My documents, overwriting the existing file in there.

Wait! How do install mods?

Right, extract the rar files above to

My Documents/Euro Truck Simulator 2/mods

Then fire up euro truck simulator 2 and click on your existing profile and press Edit or create a new one. On the next screen on the right you will see a list of all the mod files inside the mod folder (they will all have the .scs file extension), just hit enable all (be careful though if you have conflicting mods in that folder such as the ProMod and TSM map mods! Make sure you have the correct map mod enabled for whatever profile you are using or creating) - (fill in your driver name, favourite truck manufacturer, company name, logo and driver picture if you are creating a new profile) then hit apply and start up the game using that profile.

Thats it!

Q. I wanna try this game, but dunno if I would like it

You can download a demo from steam :D http://store.steampowered.com/app/227300/?snr=1_7_15__13

Q. Where can I buy the game cheap right now?

Check the sub reddits of Truck Sim and the Euro truck sub reddit (both linked at the bottom of this post). If its on sale somewhere it will be linked in one of those subreddits. Otherwise wait for a steam sale. You can also buy the retail box from amazon, as its quite cheap there sometimes and then whack the retail box key into steam and it will download the game (best to get the "Gold" Edition box as it contains the "Going East" expansion which expands the eastern European section of the games map.
