Euro Truck Simulator 2 update 1.16 - Going 64-bit!
The focus of the upcoming official 1.16 game update is to ship engine changes and other behind the scenes elements in preparation for our big future content updates. 64-bit version of the game is currently accessible in beta on Steam, it will be available as a regular game update for all users soon. We have prepared a short set of questions and answers about this change:
How will 64-bit executable affect your game?
64-bit executable is a purely under-the-hood technical change and should have no negative effect on how your game ecosystem works - all your saves, modifications, trucks, and input methods will work just as they used to before.
Why are you releasing the 64-bit executable?
Memory footprint of our game has been increasing over time with our expanding game world, new features and countless modifications for the players to choose from. The 64-bit executable will allow the game to access the entire physical memory of your computer and avoid out-of-memory crashes related to 32-bit memory limitations. Most modern PCs these days ship with considerably more memory, often 6-8 GB or more, and this memory could not be used with a 32-bit binary, where the limit was only 4 GB or even 2GB in case of 32-bit systems. The 32-bit game has been essentially starving for memory while several spare Gigs of memory were idling in the operating system.
What are the benefits of this change?
Using the new executable should alleviate memory related issues you may have experienced in the past - many users have already reported problems with memory limitations after installing large collections of modifications. Even for a game with no mods installed, with more textures and 3D assets cached in memory, the framerate should stay more stable during long play sessions.
Map creators will have a smoother experience in the map editor as you'll have way more memory at your disposal.
I have a 32-bit OS. Can I somehow use the 64-bit executable?
Unfortunately not - 64-bit executable can only be used on 64-bit operating system. If you are serious about playing ETS2 extensively, we highly recommend you to consider upgrading your 32-bit operating system to 64-bit version at this point.
Are you planning to keep supporting 32-bit executable after this update?
Yes. We are are not dropping it suddenly, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the game will be maintained and kept in sync for a considerable period of time. We've actually included several engine changes into 1.16 that are focused on improving memory management also for the 32-bit version so that all of our users can enjoy Euro Truck Simulator 2.
The 1.16 update also features minor map changes as we continue to update truck dealer locations to match the dealership revamp we have shipped in our previous update. Please note that this change may affect game modifications, so if you are experiencing crashes first try disabling any map modifications you have installed.
Everybody loves new stuff and we are aware that our fans are impatiently waiting for the release of the goodies that we have been covering on this blog. Admittedly, from this point of view ETS2 1.16 doesn't bring much to the table. This update mostly serves as a wide-scale stress-test for the new tech to come. Meanwhile though, our ETS2 mapping team is putting finishing touches to DLC Scandinavia, while the vehicle team is doing solid progress on the long-awaited Mercedes-Benz New Actros truck model. Cool stuff is on the way! We cannot yet predict which will come out first, but both teams are racing each other to finish their task as soon as possible. And that's just Euro Truck 2, and you know that's not the only project we are working on.

Medieval Engineers Announcement
Here is some news just coming out from the guys who created the popular sandbox game Space Engineers. This game will also support modding support so expect to hear more from this game and its mods soon.
Medieval Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction and the maintenance of architectural work and mechanical equipment using medieval technology. Players build cities, castles and fortifications; construct mechanical devices and engines; and perform landscaping and underground mining.
Medieval Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine with a focus on structural integrity: all game objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged or destroyed, and the object’s mass and structure influences its integrity. The game comes with creative mode and an early prototype of survival mode.
Medieval Engineers is the second “engineering” game developed by Keen Software House. The first one was Space Engineers, which sold over 1 million copies in its first year and is still a bestseller.
