Euro Truck Simulator 2 v1.16 Update

Here are 2 main features of the Euro Truck Simulator 2 v1.16 Update :
  1. Added 64-bit game version, you can see it now via the Steam game launcher.
  2. Updated new style for the dealership.
  3. SCS team also said that the focus of them in the next version would be about ship engine.

64-bit executable is out because the game world is more and more bigger. It will allow ETS2 use the entire RAM, avoid out of memory from 32-bit memory limitations. Also, almost computers today have 6-8 GB of RAM and couldn’t be used with 32-bit system.

Note: You can’t use 64-bitexecutable with 32-bit OS.

Here are some new screenshots of the this update:

  1. The biggest problem with the 64 bit system that was released is none of the maps work with it. I have a 64 bit system and went back to the old engine because of this problem.

  2. I must upgrade my RAM again to play this game,i played this game since the update 1.1.1 until now,every updates had a plus-minus,like inthe update 1.8.3 the system of my laptop crashes every time , then in the update 1.14 i lost my lovely savegame(because i not cheating)and my level was divine champion!,then i use get data back software to restore it,and in the update1.15.0.3 i cannot visit the big city like amsterdam,etc..,game crashes every time when i tried to buy scania trucks,but so far,still good i like this game so much!!!! ….thanks for scs software and ets2 modders…….

  3. Now this what I have observed and why this update is very useful.

    First of all here are my specs:

    HP ENVY dv6
    Intel i7 3630 QM
    Nvidia Geforce 630M
    Intel HD Graphics 4000
    8GB RAM
    Nearly 900 GB of disk space
    64 bit

    Not a gaming laptop but since I am using 64 bit version I have observed that ETS2 has becoming more demanding that the 1.9.x versions and below. Memory and RAM usage at 1.8 versions and below were around 2-3 GB for me. Now to the latest version it reached 4GB, half of my RAM. And because of memory issues of a 32bit game, it couldn’t go higher than that since 32 bit games can only have a capacity until 4GB. There was also a much slower loading in the game, esp. when you have mods, than before, and my PC starting to lag out a little shit because of this memory issue.

    I’m thankful that SCS software has finally came up of the mind of updating the game. I’m expected for the game to nearly reach 5-6 GB of my RAM since of its more demanding memory power. I have also a graphic card of Nvidia which includes a DDR3 2GB, which is quite big and supports my RAM.

  4. WHY DID THEY RELEASE THIS VERSION , KNOWING IT WOULD CRASH THE GAME WHEN YOU VISIT MOST OF THE TRUCK DEALERS? I NOW HAVE TO BUY ONLINE BECAUSE THE GAME CRASHES AS I MENTIONED ABOVE. WHEN YOU GO PAST THE DEALERS TO OPEN THEM IT CRASHES THE GAME. IF YOU NEED TO BE TOWED TO THE NEAREST FIX IT PLACE AS LONG AS IT IS NOT CONNECTED TO THE DEALERSHIP YOUR FINE OTHER WISE IT CRASHES. I NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM IN 1.15.2 VERSION.AND YES HAVE A 64 BIT COMPUTER. ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS PROBLEM AND IF SO WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT?
