ETS2 1.19 Update Open Beta
We are happy to confirm that we are on the final approach for ETS2 1.19 Update release. An Open Beta is available on Steam now.
The most prominent features of this update are:
Hungary expansion - we have added two new cities to the Going East! content - Pécs and Szeged
Mod Manager - for ease of preview and organization of modded content. We encourage all mod makers to check out Mod Manager documentation for instructions on how to make sure that your mods are well prepared for the new Mod Manager.
Other notable improvements include:
Manual control for automatic transmission (shifting hints, switch between manual/auto)
Controls for dashboard navigation map (zoom, turn off)
Driver controlled trip info stored in truck computer (distance, consumption)
Editor improvements (see Modding Info)
Matching truck cabin interior looks shown in exterior view.
Improved readability of dashboard info in some trucks (computer display, GPS map)
Added wheel sounds on different surfaces (+ re-balanced sounds)
Added sounds for sticks and buttons in truck cabin
You can find the beta in the public_beta branch on Steam. (Steam client -> LIBRARY -> right click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 -> Properties -> Betas tab -> public_beta - 1.19 public beta)
Please note that Open Betas are released for advanced users who want to get a preview of upcoming stable release functionality, and for mod makers to give them a chance to make any necessary changes before the official update is out. Anyway it's a good idea to make a backup of your player profile if you want a safe route to revert back to stable version.
Please report any issues with the Beta you might find in our dedicated forum thread.
