This summer there were multiple SCS Software teams traveling the globe to attend various events, meet the community, or explore new options for the company. As of today, another crew just appeared in the US to record the sounds of as many trucks as possible! They're going to spend a week in Allentown, PA and move to Lisle, IL next, but they are thinking of improvising further to visit more locations if needed.
We have some solid arrangements to record and photograph several trucks, but we thought it may be a good idea to consult additional options with the fan community. Do you have access to a truck on the list below? Would you be willing to spend a day with our recording team? Or do you know anyone who would? Or any other way to get access to a truck for a day? Then contact our manager Miroslav Zubina (firstname.lastname@example.org) please, and let him fill you in on the details of what we are looking for and when we may be around!
These are the configuration we'd like to get for recording:
Engines: MP7 - 11 litres/ MP8 - 13 litres
Exhaust: Under Frame/ Dual Vertical
Engines: Cummins X15 engine
New Volvo VNL
Freightliner New Cascadia
Engines: DD13/ DD16/ Cummins X15
Exhaust: Dual Vertical/ Under Frame (at least those with vertical exhausts)
And besides the above, we want to record ANY truck which can be found on American roads, if time allows it - you never know when these sounds might come in handy! So write to Miroslav if you have got one and think we can meet.
Keep in mind that this isn't meant as any kind of assurance of what comes next; when and in what order. But at least you know we're working hard to get more trucks for both of our games - so next time someone says we're giving more love to one of them, you'll know better!
