    World of Trucks first newsletter #1 by Scs

    I have received the first World of Trucks newsletter #1!
    Anyone can get Scs Software newsletter by marking a check box in World of Trucks website in profile page. It contains developer diary and some depth about what went into Scandinavia development, as well as touch other projects that are currently in various stages. If you did not received newsletter you can find it at Scs Software forum there they store all future newsletters.

    For American Truck Simulator fans:
    They will start showing you a lot more about American Truck Simulator, it's in early alpha version. They was busy to finish ets2 Scandinavia and they will show more info about ATS later.

    About CODENAME EURO COACH SIMULATOR
    "Most people in the company are currently occupied with putting finishing touches to Scandinavia and working on ATS, they haven't forgotten about this project! A small team have been working on building and implementing coaches on top of their technology during the past two years. They have been building the vehicles, chasing licences, and exploring technical aspects of adapting the ETS2 world - the gameplay aim is to have the focus on multi-stop routes that would be quite different from standard delivery jobs currently available in ETS2.    
    What is the vision for the project? For a short while, they have been toying with the idea of building it into a standalone game. But in the end they have realized that they do not have enough focus to do a full-scale production of all-new original content. With inevitable extensive reuse of material from Euro Truck Simulator 2, it is more fair to think about coaches as appearing in the form of a DLC, benefitting from the constant updates to the base ETS2 game and sharing the same ever-growing game world as the playfield for passenger as well as cargo transportation."
    Here is some screenshots of Coach Sim:

    DirectX 12 Questions

    DirectX 12

    DirectX 12 has been redesigned to be faster and more efficient than ever, it will work closer to GPU hardware it provides a lower level of hardware abstraction. The good thing about DirectX 12 is it will run on many of the cards gamers already have so you do not need to buy a new DX12 graphic card, if you have a graphic card that support DirectX 11 then you should be fine. More info about DirectX 12 see MSDN Dev Blogs here

    Now the Question is will Microsoft release DirectX 12 on Windows 10 only ? and the most important question will Microsoft release DirectX 12 runtime for Windows 7 & 8 too ? Many people have asked this and it is unknown at this time, there is no official statement by MS yet.

    And final question how will Microsoft get backwards compatibility for DirectX 7,8,9 on Windows 10 ? Will they be supported with a software emulator?, so all of our current games will still run. if it so then the emulation layer will slow things down and it will get slow?
