Customize your own truck game
Did you know that January 24 is the Unification Day of Romania? While we weren't aiming for this date deliberately, the timing is fortunate, and we're glad to announce availability of the Romanian Paint Jobs Pack just ahead of this important day for our sizable fan community there.
We're going to expand our range of national paints even more. While the lands of Australia are quite far from the region covered in Euro Truck Simulator 2, the country actually sits well within the top 20 countries with the most copies sold of the game. Looks like there are a lot of truck fans down under! The winter is very cold these days here in Europe, and we can only envy Australians all the sun that they are now basking in. Our take on sunlit Australian Paint Jobs may be considered an expression of our excitement for the next summer.
The guys were there to make detailed 3D scans and take plenty of photos of the new Scania's R and S series vehicles.
Even though it was an isolated mention, it became obvious that this news is of much interest to Euro Truck Simulator 2 fan community, as the tweet ended up with over 800 "likes" and 200 retweets; actually record numbers for whole of 2016.
The scanning crew has come back to Prague after three days of work, and the team has since started using the ton of acquired digital data as the basis for creation of the new vehicle 3D models.
It was a nice surprise for us today to see that Scania's press department has just issued a short video clip interviewing Hynek, our vehicle group leader, recorded back at Scania's Demo Centre facility.
The video is showing a mix of material from the 3D scanning work, combined with in-game footage from our older game Scania Truck Driving Simulator - the Game, in which the Demo Centre was a drivable area that the player could experience. (The Demo Centre map has later been exported from our game and imported into the well-known ProMods mod for ETS2, so many people may know the testing circuit only from there, or even consider it a creation of the ProMods guys.)
