    To access the open beta branch of European Truck Simulator 2 you will need to If go to: Steam client → LIBRARY → right click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 → Properties → Betas tab → public_beta → 1.27 public beta. No password required.

    MAIN FEATURES
    • Country Specific Police Cars AI
    • Trailer Liftable Axles

    • Transmission input shaft simulation (double clutch)
    MINOR CHANGES
    • Volvo with Allison gearbox can shift up over 4 gear.
    • Air pressure simulation improved (pressure buildup, cut-off sound, application pressure)
    • Coin sound tweaked.
    • FOV range increased to 40-120 degrees in adjuster.
    • Engine brakes set to 3 positions (as most current truck have). For one-key-hold control you can still use full strength.

    • Nominal air_tank_pressure value added to chassis data.
    • Changed interior animations: all air, oil and brake pressure (gauges, indicators)
    • New interior animation: trailer axle lift (indicator), differential lock (button, indicator)

    The biggest drawback is the lack of proper physics. In the end is always start racing as it does not matter and i get bored. So i start AMS to race with trucks that have proper physics.

    I agree, though there are some mods that improve the physics little bit

    I don't fall asleep but the game is relaxing. Turn up your favorite jams on the radio and go for the long haul. :thumbsup: Also you can disable the speed cams.

    I'm still running beta 1.26 since I guess the 1.27 beta is not VR. :(
