Upgrading Edit

Every truck brand in Euro Truck Simulator 2 offers one or two base models. Every model has a series of options that can be upgraded by the player's choice. As you increase in level, higher tier upgrade options become available. Normally, a truck can be upgraded with the options below:

Upgrading Types and Options:

  1. Cabin
    1. Tier 1 Cabin - Small overall size (eg. Sleeper (Volvo); Normal (Scania) )

    3. Tier 3 Cabin - Large overall size (eg. Globetrotter XL (Volvo); Topline (Scania) )

Service Shops Edit

Service Shops can be found in every city of Euro Truck Simulator 2 European map. They can be visited 24/7 in order to repair truck damage, upgrade the truck or even to apply for a custom player paint job.

Repair/Service Shop in Lyon (France)

In a designated group of cities, the Service Shop can be adjacent to a large Truck Dealership. However, some cities are also an exception - having a Service Shop and a Dealership, in two individual locations.

Damage Edit

Damage is dealt when you collide with an object (sign, wall, barrier, AI car). It also accumulates while driving normally. This happens because the parts wear down in use, so regular maintenance is recommended even if you drive safely.

Damage is not visually simulated in the truck. It is simulated mechanically, however. Damage reduces the truck's overall performance - turning, throttle, handling, and even fuel consumption. Increased damage also adds a chance of having an engine malfunction - which will cause failures in the truck's battery and engine, and eventually, turn it off permanently if a critical damage percentage is reached.

It can be fixed by visiting a Service Shop, for a fee that will depend on the variety and percentage of damage. Repair prices range anywhere from €1 to €95,000 and tend to cost around €625 (£500) for each 1% of damage.

The player can also choose to call Emergency (via GPS - F7) at any point of the game, even while hauling a delivery. The emergency can transport the truck and cargo to the nearest city's Service Shop. This is useful in case of an unrecoverable crash, critical / total damage percent reached - or simply if the truck ran out of fuel.

Note, however, that Emergency transportation will have a cost that will vary according to the distance of the nearest Service Shop. This transportation will also take time - this means that if the player is hauling a cargo delivery, they will now have less time to deliver it.
