The Convoy video game mode will let up to eight gamers hop in a private session together to finish jobs on the open roadway with synced traffic and weather condition.
SCS say that upgrade 1.41 is the very first model of the Convoy mode. “We have a long list of features and enhancements already collected to think about for future major updates, and we are sure more ideas will come,” they state.
Here’s what the speculative variation of the Convoy mode permits so far:
- Any player can host and create their own private sessions for approximately 8 people
- Capability to carry the very same contracts/jobs together from the same company and to the exact same location
- Integrated AI traffic
- Synchronized time and weather condition
- Synchronized paint jobs, truck accessories, cabin devices, and more
- Capability to communicate with other chauffeurs through CB radio broadcast (X key), quick replies (Q key), or text chat (Y secret)
“There is likewise an option, prior to you leave the Convoy, to restore your video game development to a previous save game state, which may be helpful if you are not happy with what occurred to your truck, freight, or wallet throughout your Convoy driving session,” SCS state, while looking straight at that a person co-op buddy in the group, I picture.
SCS have described all the other current functions and recognized problems in the Convoy video game mode over in their forum post. That’s also where they’ve given out information on unlocking the experimental branch if you’re eager to see the work in progress for yourself.
SCS do also discuss that they’ve not extensively promoted the experimental branch right now in order to manage expectations. Do be patient then if you choose to attempt it out and discover yourself on a rough roadway, as it were.
Digital truckers have actually currently been playing together for years thanks to Truckers MP, one of the finest Euro Truck Sim 2 mods. It’s swell to see gamers getting to go hands on with the official multiplayer support though.
Formerly in trucking news, both ETS2 and ATS have just recently gotten fancier lighting. ETS2 most just recently introduced that Iberian DLC adding Spain and Portugal to the map while ATS is looking forward to a Wyoming DLC.
