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

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 on our dedicated forum thread.

I wish you can also see at this mod browser old and non updated mods. So Its better to look out for crashes and stuff. Also will there become a workshop? on steam?

Pretty cool looking update, got to work out how to add those thumbnails for mods now :P

Also will there become a workshop? on steam?
If feels to me like the addition of a Steam workshop is a little too late, there's already a huge library of mods available from elsewhere, so for me begs the question whether we really need it - suppose it would be helpful for the people who are new to the game and don't know where else to look though :P

I love updates where they add extra little details to make it more realistic. :)

Beta's are good but be careful of bugs that could make your Save data corrupt. Report bugs soon after you found it.

I think the final version of 1.19 will be available soon ;) They don't do a beta version for a month... I think ! So, just be patient :p

Assuming you're talking about an oversized trailer pack? That should still be working fine with the beta patch :)

Version 1.19.x.x is out and it seems to work ok for the most part, I have various mods installed and they all work ok, however a lot of mods are being updated to work correctly with this version the most recent is the jazzycats mods which are now updated, promods will be releasing their update v1.96 hopefully within the next week RusMap 1.5 and PolandRebuilding 1.96 work fine as they are
