** If you're not into perfect simulation, control of the trucks can be simplified so that changing gears is optional.

* DownloadableContent: For ''ETS 2'', there are many additional paint jobs (some of which are themed after countries) you can buy. There are also two expansions; the ''Going East!'' expansion allows truckers to head further into Eastern Europe, while ''Scandinavia'' allows them to enter the Northern European region officially, and ''Vive La France'' will expand France.

* NintendoHard: The game is decidedly relaxing for the most part, but parking and unloading the truck is a trial-and-error experience if you're not a RealLife trucker. Fortunately it can be skipped, at the cost of missing out on some XP.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Regardless of whether the player is mainland European, a Brit, or even a Yank, the trip across the Chunnel is only going to end in suffering if you're not used to making the trip in RealLife. Also, playing this game after logging a significant amount of time in traditional WideOpenSandbox games is likely going to net you a lot of penalties.

* NoAntagonist: There is nothing actively working against you in the game except your own mistakes, and even then you can always take jobs in borrowed trucks if you can't afford fuel/service for your own. Even in the business sim aspects, there are no opposing companies and your employees will make you money nine times out of ten. Pretty much the only way to get into trouble is going into debt and defaulting on a bank loan, which almost takes actual effort, as the rates are surprisingly reasonable.

''VideoGame/AmericanTruckSimulator'' is the next game in the series, taking place on the North American continent. Along with replacing the cab-over trucks found in Europe with American conventional trucks, it also introduced weigh stations to the series.

''VideoGame/AmericanTruckSimulator'' It has a coffee-swilling cousin over the Atlantic known as ''VideoGame/AmericanTruckSimulator''. Not unexpectedly, this sequel is the next game in the series, taking one that takes place on the North American continent. Along with replacing the cab-over trucks found in Europe with American conventional trucks, it also introduced weigh stations to the series.



* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: Many, but most notable is the incredibly condensed passage of time and [[SpaceCompression size of Europe]], a design decision likely made because not even the most dedicated sim fan wants to make a real-time trip across an actual-size replica of Europe in an 18-wheeler.

* BigBadassRig: The point of the game. American players who do not find the European-style cab-overs big or badass enough have created {{Game Mod}}s introducing bigger, more badass conventional trucks, complete with [[{{Eagleland}} American]]-[[WearingAFlagOnYourHead flag paint schemes.]] Naturally, SCS is making ''American Truck Simulator'' in response to this.
