SCS Software What a weekend!
This has been a very busy weekend for us and the truck sims fan community! You can watch @Squirrel live now on his Twitch channel playing Euro Truck Simulator, but the most massive community engagement heavy lifting this weekend was definitely provided by the team of Truckers.FM radio station. But first things first...

After updating both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 to version 1.31 earlier this week, finally we had an opening for another World of Trucks event. We came up with the idea to promote and celebrate the kick off of our "SCS on the road" series of trips for the 2018 season with an accompanying event. As you may remember from last year and from our recent blog posts, we have partnered with the organizers of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship, and will be present at all their races with our games and our high tech gear, entertaining the visitors and providing an opportunity for our fans to meet us in person. The first round of races is taking place in Italy the next Saturday and Sunday, so it was perfect timing to launch our World of Trucks event a week earlier, and so we have done just that with our...​
The new GUI tileset
The process of the GUI re-design is moving slowly but steadily. By making new mockups, re-thinking old mechanics, and with the proper feedback from a different range of people, the parts are falling into place.

I'm starting to feel very confident with the actual general contrast and font sizes. Also the conversion from high resolution to normal resolution is working just fine. These subjects are very important to move forward with.

Below you can see a demo of the current state of the new GUI. Not all the widgets are shown yet, but this document is helping us a lot in order to define the future elements.Seeing the big picture makes it much easier to tweak them altogether with a better coherence and consistency, not to mention for testing any kind of font, specifically non-latin characters sets, a subject that I personally have not paid too much attention to yet.

This document is being used also to create the general tileset and see how it behaves in the engine. This is a work in progress, and we are tweaking details constantly. Many things will change during the process. Overall here you can see a sneak peek of the Factorio GUI to come.

I want to also mention that we are actually taking care of the 8% of the population who has some sort of color vision problems. This subject is still very new for us, but we are without a doubt researching solutions to different conditions....
