ETS2 1.38 and 1.39 Speculation Thread

#1 Post by natjer3 » 05 May 2020 08:59

Lets start speculating on 1.39

I think we may get more of Germany revisiting.

Edit: According to @SiSL 1.38 speculation aint over.

From the blog article:
A re-work of lighting, assets and more are being worked on ...
So I guess the older vegetation models and some prefabs(?), mostly in the base game and "Going East!" expansion might get replaced with new ones, leaving only the road network, which might get worked on in the subsequent updates.

Also, I expect some live rainclouds (as seen in Mack Anthem Instagram post, might be a teaser) and adjustable AI traffic density, since they are also somewhat related to graphics.

Might be expecting too much, but as far as trailers are concerned, I expect one of these: Lowbeds, Car transporter, Class 3 ADR transporter, Krone Megaliner.

After some time, the graphics start to feel somewhat decent but when you really look at, the vegetation and trees seems a picture, plain, sometimes in some parts of the map, hope they improve that.

As it says, they are reworking lighting system, so it means that EVERYTHING will look like different (more or less depending on how big would the changes be).

That has been already told us that require changes in lots of textures; that's probably the mention of assets changes. If they will seize the opportunity or not to change asset models in more profundity is something we can't just speculate.

And about trailers, I expect a reworking on the livestock transport. It's one of the trailers more "out of place" actually, because it has just 1 job, because it has the excessive height only allowed in UK and because I expect them to have relevance in the next Iberian DLC. There's A LOT of livestock transport here, specially pigs and sheeps. So, it would be a good moment to make the change and theme it with the DLC.

Mark my words, main feature of 1.38 will be PBR (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physicall ... _rendering). Else will be only little features, probably the sky textures and some cloud shadows.

Regarding to rebuilding, I don't see so much updates to come, probably only few cities and some little regions.

If you saw so much anger and cursing on 1.37 from users, watch out what a storm will arrive from 1.38 because the changes in material lighting will be dramatic.

I expect finally some Special Transport routes for RttBS.

More axle variants and doubles for the cistern trailer would be nice also. In the end I would really love if ALL ownable trailer types will be available in double, b-double and HCT variants!

Considering how those changes will completely broke most visual mods; the insane amount of work that it would possibly suppose for ProMods people (between others) to update and that kind of things... yes, the storm *brown stuff* could be epic. But at the end, most of it will com from people who thing they have the right to have all their beloved mods ready just on the OB release... Go figure. As we say here "brams d'ase no arriben al cel". Feel free to translate it to any similar proverb that I'm sure it exist on any language.

@isaac_mihai from what I see in the picture below, yes I think it is the final stage.

I also hope to see a road that connects Luxembourg to Germany.
