Status of Driving Directions, August 2021

So it's been well over a year already since the first driving directions were published here. Time flies! Where do we stand with the "Driving Directions" project, and where are we headed?

First of all, I'm grateful for every single contribution we've been getting. I have no exact count, but it seems that at least 15 different individuals have added new directions or fixed up old ones over time. A big shoutout and my special thanks go to User:Busted85, who's been very active for a period last winter. Nice work, everybody. Thank you!

As you may know, the project status is described in text over on the project page. In short, both the Pacific Northwest and Arizona / New Mexico have a lot of directions complete. Utah and Colorado have some, while Cal…

Updating Full Map of ETS2 Today

I think it's safe to say that I am happy to announce the replacement of the full map of Euro Truck Simulator 2 in less than an hour or so. All I have left to do is Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

As soon as I am finished with the map, I will then update Portugal with the new section of the Autoestrada A24, and the new map icons. Since Portugal is much more smaller than the entire map, it will be replaced today.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Full Map w/ Update 1.41 - Half way done

Its been almost exactly a week since I posted a blog about my progress update on updating the full map of ETS2, and now, here's the second progress update. At this moment, The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, and Austria are complete (see more in my first progress update). Denmark, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary are partially complete.

I am aiming to complete the Czech Republic first, and then head towards Turkey with Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria to be finished. After that, I will head north towards Finland with Poland, Russia, and the three Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia to be finished. The last pieces to be finished will be Denmark, Sweden, and finally, Norway.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Full Map w/ Update 1.41 - Progress Update

I recently posted a blog about me replacing map images for ETS2 due to update 1.41. As of posting this blog, the full map of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is in the works for a new replacement. Portugal, Spain, Mainland France (Corse is still unfinished), Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the United Kingdom are finished. The Netherland, Italy, and Germany, are partially complete. The last country to be finished, according to my latest screenshot taken, will be Norway.

The finish line for this replacement is still unknown. It will be finished when I am finished.

Update (2021-08-01)

Turn out that I had to replace my display card, and while there was a harddisk failure it's my booting one. I took the opportunity to replace the stuff with an SSD, a newer display card, and also upgrading my machine's memory. Things go much faster although I still don't dare to record trucking videos for now.

Updating ETS2 map images

This is my update on updating map images for Euro Truck Simulator 2 due to the newest update, 1.41. All map images will experience a replacement excluding cities, because there are almost 300 cities featured and would take about at least a month to replace all of them. All or some map images need to be updated due to the following content that has been added or updated:

  • There is another section of the A24 in Portugal that was added between A25 and A7.
  • All map icons (Gas stations, rest areas, viewpoints, etc.) have been redesigned.
  • Some areas have been added or redesigned in the Iberia DLC.

The first map I will start off will be the full map, which is currently the biggest map in this Encyclopedia. After that, all maps of countries will be upda…

How are bank loan installments calculated?

When the Bank becomes available to the player, they must choose whether they will take out a loan and how much they should take out in order not to go bankrupt later in the game. The key factor affecting how much a player chooses to take is the daily installment, namely how much they have to pay back every day. The question becomes how these values are calculated.

Take the Bank in ATS as our example as it has different repayment periods for every loan. The table below maps the amount of the loan into how much you have to repay every day:

What we have to do here is to attempt to obtain these values using the most common way of calculating loan amounts. It is worth mentioning that the formula we should use is somewhat different than its real-l…

My excuse... again

Sorry I think I am making excuses again.

It's 3 years after I had my additional harddisk failed and... well, the replacement has just died. It's not the real reason that I have been away lately though -- the real reason is that I am too addicted to another game.

And frankly, I would have been an idiot if I had no insurance whatsoever. I have been keeping things backed up to a NAS since the last incident so any unpublished work is fine this time.

But in any case, I probably am to engage (even) less in Truck Sims in the immediate future.

Rambling 2

This is probably a rambling within a rambling.

I am still trying to do French roads but the time after Lunar New Year has been slightly chaotic in real-life. (Personal note: NIMBY Rails is a very dangerous game!)

As 1.40 rolls around new German roads are released. On this opportunity I am going to update their icons according to in-game road signs instead of map signs (i.e. very much like French road signs), no less because in-game road signs now features a heck lot more roads than in the map, and even some B roads (Bundesstraßen) are signed in-game now.

However I run to one problem: Road signs number plates are often darker than map signs. That means those signs contributed by everyone will need to be replaced sooner or later...

Map Scale in ETS2 and ATS

Europe and the USA are too big to be featured in 1:1 actual sizes, so in the Truck Simulator games we have something called map scale.

First let's talk about how to write map scales. If you have ever seen 2D paper maps, then you should be familiar with it. The map scale is written as a ratio, typically as 1:x, where the 1 represents the length on the map and x represents the actual real-life length. For example, if you see a map with scale 1:10,000 that means 1 centimeter on the map represents 10,000 centimeters or 100 meters in real life.

You have probably learned from at least one source that the map scales of ETS2 and ATS are both 1:20, but this is not actually the case. The map scales in these two games only differ by a little, for that …

Rambling 1

Just some ramblings on what I am doing related to this Wiki. This will be a few so I add the number 1 to this post.

Road mileage maps should always have been easy (as I did a long time before). But when I became obsessive with going paperless since about 2017 I kind of inflated myself. Even before that, I was unsatisfied with simple strip diagrams so I made my maps at least topologically accurate, and as time passed I started to go geographically accurate, and now I seem to be determined to include detailed features like inaccessible roads / railways and (selectively) buildings. I spent much more time reading the textures in the map editor than actually driving now. God knows what I'd do next.

As for the tools, I first used my tab with bu…

I seem sticking to France very often

Most of my contributions in these two years are France-related road pages.

The reason is relatively simple:

  1. Why I do roads:  City pages are usually completed by more hardworking members, while the roads usually need in-game mileage and junction information to be useful.  There is also interesting information on how SCS features a road or even how to sign them.  (A small spoiler:  A837 in game is actually just a stub, not as long as the map label wants us to believe.  Everything north of somewhere is of lower standard)
  2. Why I do France:  France is a relatively marginal region that most roads are stable.  Older maps are prone to update (e.g. I expect SCS to update to Benelux or Switzerland / Austria after Gernamy) while places like the Balkans and…

This community is lacking administrators

There is only one administrator of the community, which is Patrickov. Recently, Doktorpixel14 has left the community due to the fact that he no longer plays ETS2 nor ATS. I think there should be more than one admin because if there is a vandalization happening and that occurs while the admin is offline (at night for example), it could take a while for the user vandalizing pages to get blocked from this community. I sent Patrickov a message about the community's problem. I want more admins in this community, please.

Hello, I am a FANDOM User that watches the Truck Simulator Wiki, and I will not be watching the Wikia for almost half of the week starting Sunday, because I will be gone to Massachusetts and Connecticut. I wish to the moderators and the users that watch the Wikia good luck. I will come back on Wednesday and hope the Wikia is clean. If I'm lucky enough, I might be watching SCS Software's blog during my time in Massachusetts and Connecticut. I am also following SCS Software on Facebook, so I'm more lucky to find out what's happening to Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. Goodbye for 4 days. :)

MAN TGX Euro 6 is joining Euro Truck Simulator 2!

Today, 8 February 2019, the long awaited MAN TGX Euro 6 truck line has been introduced to Euro Truck Simulator 2 together with update 1.34.

The truck comes with 3 cabins: XL, XXL and XLX as can be seen in the photo below.

The creation of the truck began back in 2014, according to SCS Software developer nicknamed Carthoo, it was delayed in 2018 because of missing chassis configurations, which SCS Software put efforts to probably find and implement, some of them are very rare. I think that the model looks good from outside (probably due to the long work on the chassis and more work on the exterior), but the Interior has some bad graphics but its not so bad, I took it to a long drive and it definitly did not disappoint me at all, I give it 8/10…

Status Update + My Two Cents on 1.32 open beta

Unfortunately, my dead harddisk could not be resurrected or have its data retrieved, which means I have to restart my work from scratch.  Meanwhile, I have a major tidy-up work at home, that I probably am not resuming my pace for a while.

I still took time to try out 1.32 open bata though.  I feel SCS has delivered less than they promised.

  • I voiced out a bug at Kiel at their sneak peek, but in the beta it's not fixed
  • The new district for Hamburg hasn't materialised.  Frankfurt seems not complete as well
  • Lubeck turns out to be just a closed off ferry point.  I have a feeling that Beyond the Baltic Sea can be accessed without Going East though (in real life Lubeck has ferries to / from Lithuania / Latvia / etc)

Italian Autostrada Icons

Since Scandinavia SCS uses new methods to render highway icons in-game.  Last time I found the set of fonts and definitions so I made some samples, as seen on A81 and N157 (France).

For Italia, I have also located the font, although I think if I simply extract the bitmaps and apply it to the maps the resolution would mess up.  Instead, I made some SVG's resembling the font and icon, and double-check with in-game screen captures.  The result is on the you see now.

Still I think I might have missed out some definitions - I somehow believe SCS has a vectorized font definition, and those bitmaps are probably mere "mirrors" - if they use it straight and tried to resize the fonts on signs, the signs will not be as smooth as we see.  So I think I h…

Real-life Gets in the Way

Recently I play less Truck Simulator games and write less here.  The primary reason is that I now have a real car to drive, which means too much gaming would make me less concentrated when I am behind the wheels.  Real-life safety is the utmost important.

However I am well aware about SCS going to release Vive la France soon, which means I'd follow example for ATS, by keeping my copy old and grab as many old French materials as I can, before switching over to the new DLC.  I believe you guys are eager to write stuff on the new DLC anyways!

Minor rest?

Well, I still play ETS2 and such and such.  The reason that I appear to be contributing less is... well... I gotta find a way to organize E18 and E20, both very long roads at the length of 1000km (in fact E20 does span above this length just counting Danish and Swedish sections).

And of course E39 would be the next.  Hopefully this one would be split into Danish and Norwegian sections, otherwise the mileage would be confusing.

As soon as I finish the Scandinavian Euroroutes I'll continue with the Polish ones.

And then the vast Germany.

France (especially French roads) would wait until Vive la France is out, but I encourage you to take screenshots in case you want to provide some comparison.
