Seems there's a fair few versions to go back to. Right-click > properties, betas tab, select version from list box.

Ok, I did a bit of research into why my install of ETS2 was getting the dx9 present error and so far the only solution was this (it's in English and German) http://steamcommumty.com/sharedfiles.../?id=379526721 Will it work, I have no idea but it might be worth a shot.

So I did the thing to attempt to fix the dx9 error which worked for a while but it's back to crashing/freezing again after one of the latest updates 1.19 I think it was. So at this point I really don't know what to do about this problem and I might have to give up ETS2 for good, unless somehow the developers manage to fix it.

The France expansion for ETS2 is being released this coming Monday, Decembre 5th. And it looks beautiful, the landscape has been
really polsihed up. Some community videos here, very nice looking.

http://blog.scssoft.com/2016/12/firs...ty-videos.html

The already existing parts of France have been completely redone and brought to the expansion's standard as well.

I still find the occasional ride very relaxing and recreational. Nobody can really explain it, but this title still runs strong and extremely
successful, and still has a very active modding community.

The France expansion can now be bought from the SCS store without having to activate it on steam.
Scroll down and look for,

Sorry for digging up this old thread.

Is there somewhere where I can learn how to make mods and how to alter the game itself ?

Here is what I will change and add.

The weather-I will ad snow and slippery roads-Here I will ad possibility to change tyre.

Rest-Here I will give the player 3 options
1. driving and rest time determination(According EU)
2. The in game rest simulator
3. None.

I will ad pedestrian, motorcycle, bikes a.s.o.

Almanack I will add this to the game-So the player know when it's time to change his/her tyre.

Realistic timetable
Here the player can chose to play 1:1=if takes 6 hours to deliver the gods, then it will take 6 hours not 1 or 2 hours.

Here I will have
1:1, 2:1, 4:1, 8:1

Cant tell you how to code a mod, I dont know that stuff. But the game has a workshop (steam). It also has winter mods.

I would be careful, however, there are frequent updates and mods seem to get broken by them or tend to break the game. I stay away from mods in ETS2.

In my new G2 Reverb, its a blast, due to the 4x higher resolution per eye.


I still drive this a lot, for relaxation.


Your time scaling idea probably will collide with the fact that the map is a miniature model map, not real scaling. I think its 1:19 for ETS2, 1:15 for the UK, and 1:20 for ATS. In cities its different again.

How could I forget-Know from own experience added a mod and then game crash because it's doesn't work with the main game anymore-due to some upgrade of it.

They should add pedestrian, motorcycle and other soft traffic to the game.

And snow.

Thank you Skybird.

I have had a wintermod installed once-The problem was it was frosty winter ALL the time AND everywhere I drove.

I wanna create a mod...a real life weather mod and real life road situation(rain that freeze and make the road very very slippery) a.s.o.

If I would one day be hit by the lightning and suddenly know how to.

You as drive will run into several type of weather while drive from north to south or from east to west, depending on time of years and time.

Edit
The idea is when a player start a new career s/he will be asked which month, day and time they want their career to start. The weather forecast will be depending on month day and time.
So you have snow in Dec/Jan-Feb/Mar but not in the summer
End edit

I think that fails due to the immense texture files that would be needed to be swapped on the fly. Look at FS20, that has kind of live weather - and how incredibly complex the online technology is that is behind it. Dynamic light of day changes is one thing, you work with the basic textures loaded at the beginning and just alter light levels and reflexions, but for a season mod, you would need to replace the textures themselves, live, on the fly.



The game is ten years old. If this could be done, i think somebody already would have done it.



Also, how often do you face a change between winter landscape and autumn or spring landscape live during a car ride of a few hours? Almost never. Not to mention that ETS2 has no spring, summer and autumn textures either. Its allways - well, summer. Changing from summer to winter and back?

I've been thinking the same-Why hasn't anyone created a real life weather mod.

So I guess you're right.

It is sad though it would be a great thing if it was developed.

By the way the winter would be between Dec to beginning of March. and it will be here the chance for snow-slippery road will be highest.

Edit
I got the solution and it's simple-Create a new trucking game-called it European Trucking
It would be easier than alter ets2.

Finally! A huge, big, wide, open, white hole of nothingness is about to get closed in the ETS2 map. I assume with ferry traffic across the Adriatic (they better include it. Currently you are driving ridiculous routes from Italy to the central Balkan and Turkey, due to the missing traffic grid. With this DLC, still longer time away, my personal idea of a complete European traffic grid will be completed. Older content, regions from the beginning of the game , are getting massive graphical updates, too, last was Austria. Next upcoming DLC is Russia.



Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia
