Yes, I am quite satisfied with SCS! Despite everything, I honestly think they are one of the best video game companies out there.

Sure, I often don't agree with their decisions and I wish they did things differently. And my comments can often be critical, complaintful or even cynical. But that's only because I tend to speak my mind when I see something I don't like, however minor, and I want the issues I see to be discussed and eventually, hopefully, fixed.

In the end of the day, SCS are the producers of two amazing games that I am very passionate about and that they keep improving over time (which includes adding free content that you know damn well many other studios in SCS's place would have hidden behind a paywall or lootboxes or some other crap). We all can complain that some improvements are not happening soon enough or not in a way we want or are taking priority over other improvements, but there is no denying that SCS puts a lot of love and care into what they do. Is the resulting product perfect? No, far from it. But if I didn't find it to my satisfaction, I wouldn't have put hundreds of hours into it!

I don't see why Covid needs to cause slowdowns for coders and graphic designers who should be working from home anyway.
Well, my experience of working from home has been the exact opposite of yours. Just because something works for you doesn't mean it works for everyone else. There are many people, myself included, who feel better working out of home from various reasons, so let's not make broad statements like how all IT guys "should be working from home anyway".

@IvanKuz Sorry to hear about your home life. Maybe if you weren't as rude. The broad statement you accuse me of making only included coders and designers. You were the one that broadened it with "all" IT guys. What line of work are you in? I am also "satisfied" with SCS even though I rarely play now that I use a flight sim.I can haul large loads with the Airbus 380 Cargo and the entire planet is open to travel. Maybe by the time I'm ready to come back to ATS they will have Texas finished. I think it's scheduled for 2022 give or take a few months.

You could say I am one of those coders you mentioned (not exactly, but that's about 80% of my job). And while it was perhaps incorrect of me to conflate "coders and designers" with "all IT guys", my point still stands. Just because jobs like coding and design (among others) can be done remotely doesn't mean they should be, because this is not necessarily going to work out well for every individual. And, consequently, doing so can be a contributing factor to the pandemic slowdowns experienced by the companies that employ these individuals. If by "should" you meant "should have the opportunity to" then I'd completely agree, but that's not what you wrote. Sorry if you think I'm overreacting, but at this point I'm just sick of hearing "Isn't working from home great?!" from all the people who think their experience is a universal one.

I put an 8. There are some thing that need to be done or fixed, but in general I am very happy with the overall.

- Sound mix. At this moment, I think hiring Kriechbaum as a freelancer could be the best option. But, it's an opinion.
- Old models quality.
- The roadmap for DLC map development for Europe.
- Physics.

The rest, I am OK with it and very happy. SCS is a company that is very interactive with their community, with the blog, streamings and the forum. For good stuff -new trucks, what's under the hood- and not so nice stuff -delays, sound recording issues, etc-.

Also, seeing that they launched 3 trucks for ATS last year, with all the COVID stuff plus a project that was 100% Secret, from home, in short time, with not "real" references... wow.

I believe the next product in the pipeline like the 49X is one from PACCAR :P.

I gave it an 8, then I remembered sounds and changed to 7 :lol:

SCS trucks are pretty hit or miss. For example: the 49X. It's a great truck, but interior is not very good. It's missing many details and lot of models and materials that could have been borrowed from Cascadia were for some reason remade (in lower quality). Also it has no AO, only some shadows done by hand on vcol. The exterior has flaws too, some barely visible to your usual player (like inconsistencies in AO between hoods, seriously, why are the SBA hood fenders so dark?) and some very obvious like the black frames on sleeper windows. They come out with really great trucks sometimes though, like the Cascadia.

My other annoyance is really simple limitations that could open up many modding possibilites, like interior accessories that are always lit up, diff ratio connected to transmission etc.

SCS have to be congratulated. They have their defects, of course, but I will 'side with SCS' more to congratulate than to complain. 2020 was a very atypical year, they worked hard with unusual circumstances for the whole world and still brought exclusive and hot content for us. 2021 has already started promising, we are in the beginning of February and with a OB that will set tongues wagging, this 1.40 is a level above what I expected. Speaking of ATS, oh... Since LoneStar we had amazing and very detailed new trucks and brands.
In the ETS2 OB, you can already see a piece of Spain and I'm sure this DLC will surprise us.

Anyway, as I say, we as a final consumers have to come here when we have to criticize, but we also have to be present when it comes to praising, and at the moment my grade is 10 for both games and entire SCS team.

Greetings from Brazil.

Thanks, everyone for your kind words and appreciation of our work. We work really hard no matter the "weather" to be able to bring the dreams of our community to life while also trying to fulfill our internal long-term plans. You guys motivate us more than some of you might think.

Im play only ATS and I give them 9 out of 10, you can see that the SCS team makes a great effort to satisfy their players, that is invaluable, there are details (like the fifth wheel issue) that leave my mind blank and that's why I don't give them a 10 :lol: but I know they are working on everything the community wants, it's all a matter of time. :ugeek:
I will remain loyal to SCS 8-)

I voted 9 because I'm really delighted by the ETS2 product, but I'm dissatisfied by their politics of not selling it directly anymore.
Steam and on-line things are a BIG no-no for me.
Personal computer, personal hardware and software.
So I take one point out for not allowing ATS... AND some ETS maps.

This is only leaving one option, but it's unauthorized.
