ANNOUNCING HOLIDAY SPECIAL EVENT: SCS POLAR EXPRESS


We've just received a cryptic letter with some very disturbing news: Santa Claus might not be able to deliver all gifts in time on his own! We were told that Father Christmas is looking for logistic professionals who want to help out with Santa's substantial delivery backlog.

Here's more details for elves truckers who want to help out to make sure that all gifts are delivered in time: The task at hand is delivering a unique kind of cargo over the distance equal to that of SCS Software office and the North Pole. Note that this distance can be covered across multiple deliveries. Progress of the deliveries can be tracked from your World of Trucks profile.





Santa always makes sure that everyone gets the gifts they deserve, and indeed, there is something special waiting for everyone who contributes his or her due to the effort to transport all the gift packages in our Polar Express 2014 Event. Succeed and you will be rewarded with a special Raven Truck Design DLC. This original tuning set cannot be purchased, the only way to obtain is to earn a Steam key for it during this limited-time event.





This update also marks a public release of features added in the previous beta, below you can find a changelog listing highlights of this update:

I have no idea how long it took me to do this as I wasn't looking at the clock but I'm guessing that it took me like 4-5 hours to complete it, imo it was worth it! I'm loving the Golden Raven paintjob


Also after you've completed the Event 100%, you get a WoT achievement and also a Steam key for the Raven Truck Design Paintjob DLC:

Well, assuming the context "Santa's gifts" - gifts are usually delivered under Christmas trees on Christmas eve so I assume from that, the event expires December 24th. It's not hard to complete, about 4 or 5 hours driving in total. I did one job yesterday and it took me up 20%, I was driving for about an hour.

I am at 52% and I can't wait till I get to 100%. Heard some news from ETS2mp forum discussions that you can cheat in getting your miles lol. Hoping to get to 100% before the 20th December so I can enjoy driving with my new wheels in ETS2mp when 1.15 is supported.

I tried cheating, not possible :)

Assuming the cheating is teleporting, doesn't work as it actually tracks distance your wheels have turned. However, you could probably lock your truck to do a circle then leave it for a while and just refuel it, that could work. Unsure though.

The cheat is actually teleporting but you just teleport underneath the ground. Since there is nothing underneath the map, you just go flying around the map just like how people used to somehow fly when they got rammed in the earlier updates of ETS2mp. You get to reach 800KMh and still deliver Santa's Present in time for Christmas.

Ooooh! Damn son. Oh well, I still got a pretty good screenshot out of it, some money for my ETS2 bank and a chance to try out some alternate skins from my usual Electric Logistics colors. :)

Just got my first load done for the event. Birmingham to Debrecen and it took me to 46% in 1 run. Now all I need is another one like that and then a smaller run and I'll be golden (pun intended).
