New trucks/trailers coming to ETS2?

So for those who haven’t read it yet, it would seem that SCS have been listening to us. Not only are they looking at adding rigids to the game, it has also made them reopen the question of trailer ownership.

Trailer ownership is something many people have wanted, the ability to have their own trailers to pull in the game.

But lets look more towards the rigid news; what else does this mean? Well for those of you that are familiar with Flemming’s tandems, this is essentially what they are looking into (and I wonder if he is the reason for it.) The general outline is that we’d be able to drop both the tandem and rigid parts as outlined in their post on the blog. This got me thinking. If we can drop them separately, does this mean that it may also open up the possibility to do multi-drop runs?

I certainly think so. Yes, it would require some changes into how the job market works, so if it happened I would think it would be in a later patch some time after the tandems patch is released. But I can certainly see it as being part of their final goal for this endeavour. One can hope.

While they may be announcing this now, this plan sounds like it is in the very early stages so it’s unlikely we’ll see it this year. In fact I would say we are probably looking at this being a year away if it pans out. Regardless of if/when this happens, it’s good to see that SCS are still looking ahead and supporting this nearly two year old title.
