Features Edit

Ets2 Volkswagen Transporter Special

An escort vehicle

Because of the huge and heavy cargoes, the trailers have steerable axles similarly to the Heavy Cargo Pack. To help with the maneuvering of the oversized cargo, the Special Transport DLC includes escort vehicles (pilot vehicles) which assist the player along the route by stopping traffic at intersections and guiding the AI to leave the player additional space. Other features are:[4]

Key Features Edit

  • 11 huge cargoes (up to 70 tons, 6 m width, 5+ m height and 20+ m length)
  • 4 new special trailers

  • A combination of over 80 special transport jobs
  • Custom AI escort vehicles
  • Original intros for the cargoes and jobs, crowds and police cars along the routes
  • New models, characters, and animations of people assisting or spectating the transport
  • Curious pedestrians, journalists or transport co-workers along the routes
  • A new set of warning beacons for the trucks
  • Special Transport achievements

Gameplay Features Edit

  • Close collaboration with AI escort vehicles required
  • Enhanced AI behavior: clearing the path, stopping traffic, giving advice, pushing opposing vehicles to the side etc.
  • Possibility to fail the given job on the spot if you don’t adhere to strict instructions or regulations
  • New checkpoints system to keep your progress in a special transport job safe
