BjornGroen's Virtual Pictures

#1 Post by BjornGroen » 23 Jun 2020 20:18

Hi all!

I saw a lot of people on this forum already have their own thread to post their most beautiful trucks, so I've decided I might start one as well :)

First I'll tell a bit about myself:
I've started playing ETS2 about 3 years ago, because I always wanted to drive trucks. I live near Rotterdam in The Netherlands, which is Europe's biggest port, so I see a lot of trucks everyday. They mainly haul containers around here - hence my favorite freight in ETS2 are containers ;)

Back then I bought only the base game, but a couple of weeks later the Scandinavia DLC was bought and so started my ETS2 DLC collection. I also bought ATS half a year later, and since then I slowly bought all DLC's for both games. They add a lot and SCS is doing a fantastic job on this game. I've driven all sorts of trucks in this game, but I don't necessarily have a favorite brand of trucks. (An exception is that one Italian brand, I never drive any trucks of them... Sorry :D However, their newest flagship looks great!)

So, without much more delay, here are some pictures!

New day, new pictures :)

First of all, I did some minor modifications to the Scania and I bought a Kässbohrer trailer.
Then I got a beautiful trip, from a Quarry in Turkey to a construction area in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Last photo before take-off :lol:

Unloading at the construction area:

Thank you @TvKleunen, I didn't know sidecode 4 (XX-00-XX) Was never used for Trucks ;)

More pictures incoming!

I took this New Holland T9.560 for a little trip through Romania:

Image


When I delivered it at the farm, a young man told me they have sold a Slurry Container to a farm in Finland (!). Since they didn't have contacted a transport company yet, I was the first one they asked. Of course I said yes!

So I have basically transported this empty box from Galați in Romania to Kouvola in Finland :lol:

Image


On the way to the border of Hungary I got spotted:

Image


Sneaking through Latvia :lol:

Image


After taking a short ferry trip, I'm finally in Finland. After delivering the container, I've completed this 2800km journey :D

Image


In Finland I got a package at the post office which included my new license plates. Apparantly, the Department of Road Transport in the Netherlands made a mistake when registering my Scania at first. Although the first plate was quite fitting, I like these plates more:

Thank you!

Today I got some random pictures, I did not really have a goal where to drive to. So I travelled from Finland to Italy, and in Italy I started taking some shorter deliveries.


Arrived in Italy, I first took this construction loading crane thing for a ride :D

Image


Stopped at a fuel staton to take some rest...
(Apparantly I've taken this picture in the same style as the previous one... whoops :lol:)

Image


Last load were two transformers through the mountains in the middle of Italy:

Image


And now an old picture! I've taken this one in September 2018, back then I was only using ProMods, "Signs on your Truck" and SiSL's Megapack because I had a very weak PC at that time :D I still know that I took a load of fish from Klaksvik on the Faeroe Islands to Zwolle in The Netherlands. That's how much memories I get from this picture ;)

Thank you @daniminho!

Got some fresh pictures!

I drove the Scania back to The Netherlands, as a friend of mine told me he had seen a great truck offer around my home city. A somewhat new Renault Range T :) Only 200k km's driven and the price was not bad...

So I parked the Scania and visited the truck dealer. After taking it for a test drive I accepted the offer and I could pick the truck up the next day :D

Image


As I knew a great truck tuning shop in Rome, Italy I decided to drive to there (again) and get some custom parts :) Luckily a company over here wanted a load shipped to Rome, so I wouldn't drive empty ;)

I got spotted in Italy after I just crossed the border:

Image


Driving into the industrial area of Rome to drop off my load :)

Image


Next stop was of course the tuning shop :D It was literally around the corner from my drop-off point.

Quick picture to remember how it looked before:

Image


Aaand here is the result! I am very happy with it :D

Image

I'm still missing some orange Hella double burners on the sideskirts though, as they just so happened to be out of stock :( But I've ordered them in advance, so they will arrive in a few days ;)

P.S. The trailer skin is made by daniminho, check it out here :)

Thank you! I really enjoy writing those stories, as it also adds somehing to the game in general for me :D


I recently bought the Renault and I have enjoyed driving it so far, however it needed to get some well deserved maintenance so I can't drive it today, sadly.

Instead I hopped some islands with the Scania. Leaving mainland Italy for the ferry to Sicily:

Image


Tractors succesfully delivered:

Image


When they saw I had transported the tractors with a lowbed, a farmer told me that a nearby quarry wanted to transport a big machine to Sardinia. Arrived at the quarry, the machine appeared to not be too heavy, however it sticked out on both sides :lol: I don't transport such things often, however I quite liked it :)

Image


I delivered the machine in Sardinia, and around the corner I saw a cheap container trailer... Since I want to expand the company to also be able to transport containers, I bought this trailer :) It was already a couple of years old, but I know the truck shop in Rome could get it back to its former glory :D
