World of Trucks Contracts questions answered!


Greetings!

Since the start of ETS Update 1.22 open beta, we have received plenty of feedback from you concerning the new External Contracts feature and more. We would like to answer some of the most asked questions.

Before we do so, we would like to remind you: if you opted to participate in the beta and found a bug you'd like to report, we use only one channel to look for such issues - our forum. Please make sure to attach:
  • detailed description of what is happening 
  • game.log.txt
  • game.crash.txt (if a crash had happened)
  • net.log
On Windows machines, all this can be found in My Documents -> Euro Truck Simulator 2 folder. Without those files we aren't often able to pinpoint the exact issue, so such complete reports are greatly appreciated.


Q & A


Q: Why is there the same limit of 6 hours for all contracts? 
A: Right now during the initial tests, we have fixed the time limit to be the same relatively short time window. There may be multiple server restarts during beta updates, and we wanted to avoid frustrating players who are mid-delivery if longer delivery times were available initially. In the future we plan to enhance this functionality, the time limit will be set individually depending on the job. Contract delivery limits are tightly related to implementation of future gameplay, and there are various consequences of what will happen if cargo expires (please stay tuned for that).

Q: I want to drive to pick up my World of Truck job, not be “teleported” to it. 
A: This is perfectly understandable, we aim to make this possible in a future World of Trucks update, for now we have started with the simplest possible "quick job" type of setup.

Q: Are you planning to convert your Single player game to Multiplayer?
A: World of Trucks is envisioned as an optional layer created alongside the existing single player game. We will keep improving the singleplayer experience and add more features and content to the standard game, but we do not want to overhaul it and "fix" what most players would not consider broken. World of Trucks should -eventually - offer an alternate "metagame" with rich - but controlled - player to player interaction, the possibility to form Virtual Truck Companies, and eventually to make it possible to share the same world and make up convoys in a shared multiplayer game. 

Q: The game is enforcing 90km/h speed limit for all World of Trucks contracts. I want to disable it. Why can’t I?
A: As the future of World of Trucks is the same universe shared by many players, we have to make sure all players are on the same footing and have equal opportunities as well as limitations. At the moment we are looking for the right balance between strict control of certain aspects of gameplay and the ability to customize the experience according to player's preferences. In any case, at the core of the game there must be a set of "canonical" rules that everybody will have to adhere to so that there is fair comparison between players and their skills. The speed limiter currently looks like a solid candidate for such a limitation - otherwise people bending physical and legal rules would have an edge over players playing by the book.

Q: Can I change my starting city on World of Trucks? 
A: You will be able to re-select it after Beta. However, you don’t really have to do that. There’s no long-term consequence there, there is no such thing as a wrongly selected starting place. This selection is needed just to start you on the string of World of Trucks jobs.

Q: Why there are no World of Trucks contracts to and from Scandinavia?
A: Currently only the base game is connected to World of Trucks. Please be patient with us, we are already working on the system to allow you to connect Going East!, Scandinavia and any future map DLC’s to World of Trucks.

Q: I’m confused about WOTR Time and Game Time concepts, why introduce another clock if we already are used to how things work with the game time?
A: Based on initial feedback, it looks like we need to improve the presentation of the World of Trucks time in the game and on the site. The whole system is based on real time, not on "compressed" game time, for logical reasons - when there are thousands of people playing the game and sharing the same persistent job data, they cannot each use their local game time to coordinate their activities. And it had better be based on a globally understandable concept of time - like Coordinate Universal Time - rather than something artificial again. So all the servers will be using World of Trucks time, but for player comfort, this may eventually be adjustable to your local time zone, and also we'll try to adjust things to displaying relative time left until a deadline instead of any absolute time listed.

Q: I don't see how much money I get for World of Trucks contracts on the web?
A: What we are launching now is an intermediary step, a hybrid combining the standard single player game with a persistent online system. We will introduce a totally separate economy system into World of Trucks later, using different rates and costs (closer to real world) than what we established a few years ago already for the needs of the accelerated single player game. It may be a little bit confusing right now, as you are receiving in-game money for World of Trucks contracts, but it won’t be so forever.

Q: Why don't I see fuel consumption for WOTR jobs?
A: We are working on it as we speak and hopefully by the end of beta it will be enabled in some form. Proper handling of fuel consumption and associated expenses will be a part of a later stage of development of World of Trucks when we introduce more of VTC gameplay. As of now with any truck you drive, fuel is still consumed, it's just not so simple for us to report it as the online Contract job may be interrupted or even interlaced with a standard single player job.

Q: I’d like to see a map displayed on World of Trucks to help me choose my next contract.
A: We’d like you to see it as well. And we are working on it :).


Extras

Q: What happened to Volvo trucks sounds?
A: Currently the sfx are undergoing equalization polish. Especially the in-cabin sound is indeed somewhat in “unbalanced” state. This game update is introducing a new batch of recent real truck sound recordings into the game, things are still a bit raw in current betas.

  17. Thanks for answering the peoples questions. Now I can have a good night sleep and dream about the new stuff scs has in store for us with this game. Please try to make the game more realistic by bringing in tires that burst, windows that can be pulled up and down manually and some truck break downs. Also when I get in a accident, NOTHING physically happens to the truck..they show that there are damage when in a accident but we see none damage. Please don't tell me about MODS. I don't use those stuff I play it as scs updates the game. One major realistic thing you guys need to put in is hitch hikers..it won't make the game boring along the way. Also when it rains the road gets dry right after the rain has stop. Please fix that. Still thinking of new ideas to make the game more realistic as I play it. Keep UP, the GREAT work.

    2. << Aos Desenvolvedores >> Hoje venho agradecer em nome dos usuários, os ajustes realisados no transporte das cargas, como na segurança do trafego. Sem modéstia ficou ótimo. Acabo de realizar o 41º transporte, mas noto que estamos restritos há uma pequena fração do mapa, sendo a mais distante sempre partindo da República checa, ao Centro Oeste do Reino Unido, ou vice versa, utilizando apenas a Ferrovia. Isso será permanente? Ou as entregas se expandirão pelo mapa como no simulador original? E os portos? Haverá mais cargas especiais como as ADR? E outras Empresas se unirão e essa nova modalidade de entregas? Não poderia haver entregas casadas para que se estendesse pelo mapa? Agora um pedido pessoal se me permitem, viajo sempre em probabilidade 9 de chuva, mas noto-a fraca aqui, não poderiam intensificá-la com mais efeitos e nevoeiro, pois esse é o verdadeiro desafio para um caminhoneiro, as intempéries da natureza em sua viajem. Forte abraço a todos.

    3. << >> To Developers Today I thank you on behalf of users, realisados adjustments in the transport of loads, such as the safety of traffic. Immodestly it was great. I just hold the 41st transport, but I note that we are restricted there is a small fraction of the map, the farthest being always starting from the Czech Republic, the UK Midwest, or vice versa, using the Railway only. This will be permanent? Or deliveries will expand the map as the original simulator? And the ports? There will be more special cargo such as ADR? And other companies will join and this new mode of delivery? There could be married deliveries to that extended by the map? Now a personal request if I may, always travel in probability 9 of rain, but notice her weak here, could not expand it with more effects and fog, because that is the real challenge for a truck driver, the nature of the weather in your journey. Big hug to everyone.

  20. I noticed the word "future map DLC’s". Is that a kind of "official leak"?

  21. we still have first game on net where we go out of game to do something that we can play again ... not realistic for sure, what matter you think ! Obviously you need traffic on your page, not good game ,guys ! Realistic will be if we will have some page inside the game and there we will look on job market ... like on some Laptop !

  28. Poderia ter titulos dependendo da quantidade de entrega.
    Por exemplo;
    1 Carga finalizada: Trucker
    100 Cargas finalizadas: Caminhoneiro experiente
    500 Cargas finalizadas: Caminhoneiro do ano
    e assim por diante.

    E o titulo poderia aparecer abaixo do nickname.

    -
    Could have titles depending on the amount of delivery.
    For example;
    1 Work completed: Trucker
    100 Cargo finalized: Experienced Truck Driver
    500 Cargo finalized: Truck Driver of the Year
    and so on.

    And the title could appear under the nickname.

    2. None of the engine sounds are "computer generated." All the engine sounds are recorded from actual real life trucks, whether you want to believe it or not.

    4. I think all the horn sounds are placeholders, I think they might implement a horn sequence at some point like: start/loop/end. Having it in that sequence would give a more natural sound to the horn.

  47. The SCS. Greetings fellow; today around the 46th delivery of long distance, and I notice that since yesterday that the images are very accelerated, even though at low speed in curves, also cars in general, the 6ham until 18h, 5 only one is with lanterns connected. (Traffic law: Car on any public highway should be with the body shop in order to move). And so even with the rains that walk giving us; despite being in stage 9 of the bar, I saw the black mark that mingled with the few drops in the mirror, approaching to move to the left lane; and even watching intently, and with the advance arrow sign, took 7 damage in charge unnecessarily, or carelessness on my part. "Stay tuned to this detail, please," is not for money but for XP than in cashing, and the simple pleasure of handing over a load in perfect condition. In others, your work is perfect as usual. Big hug to all colleagues.

    1. A SCS. Saudações colegas; hoje intero a 46ª entrega de longa distância, e noto que desde ontem que as imagens estão muito aceleradas, mesmo estando em baixa velocidade em curvas, também os carros em geral, das 6ham, até as 18h, de 5 somente 1 está com a lanternas ligadas. (lei de trânsito: carro em qualquer via publica deve estar com a lanternagem em ordem para se deslocar). E por isso, mesmo com as chuvas fracas que andam nos dando; mesmo estando em estágio 9 da barra, não vi o ponto negro que se mesclou com as poucas gotas no espelho, se aproximar ao passar para a pista da esquerda; e mesmo observando atentamente, e com o sinal de seta antecipado, levei 7 de dano na carga sem necessidade, ou imprudência de minha parte. "Fiquem atentos a este detalhe, por favor", não é pelo dinheiro, mas pelos XP que nos descontam, e pelo simples prazer de entregar mais uma carga em perfeito estado. No demais, o trabalho de vocês está perfeito como de costume. Forte abraço a todos os colegas.

  48. I have a question too, and I mean for real>
    When will you hire more programmers to make a second team , to could work independently at 2 projects? And when will you make better models for trucks , trailers and all other prefabs? (Comparing RTA models with yours, just makes me cry, or LOL :)) ) When you will scan trucks 3D with laser, or when will you buy rich detailed 3D model of your licensed trucks with just 200-400 eur, and then make the model in 3DMAx or Maya as RTA does, faster and better ?
    When will you update the quality of graphics in ETS2 ? In 4-6 years when you will come out with DX11 or ...MAYBE 12, these will be OBSOLETE ancient technology. YOU have in your hands a very promising game, and you make nothing to enrich it with "reality".
    NO realistic economy at all, no multipoint deliveries, lot of money that you coudn't spend (just on trucks)...trailers poor detailed that you coudn't buy, garages that you couldn't upgrade with objecs, NO aquired trucks on the road, or even in the garages, not to say about seasons, lowering the window to hear environement sounds, see hands on the wheel, or getting off the truck. The traffic moves just on the roads, and in fuel stations, in any other location is freezed(companies, service stations, hotels, truck dealers). Your drivers make always Their location- City A-City A-Their location routes. Very few accidents and overtaking coming from your front. Still inexistent independent trafficlights behaviour among different countries. Reduced city area (just 5-6 streets on there you have acces). No foglights, no cabin illumination. Still important countries like Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Finland are missing, and France, Italy, Norway, Sweden, just half populated, still ALL OTHER initial cities very unreal designed in matter of street joints, traffic signs. Inexistent One-Way streets... And there are many more... The game is full of NO, NO, and NOOO....
    And with the latest beta, the CABIN BOUNCE AGAIN like hell....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. We need atleast half real acceleration trucks and braking. Or even sterring! Steering is very arcade! Every new update coming with useless stuff, and they don't want to improve generals details. Physic is so bad.. A game from 2002 has better physic..
      Lighting is really annoy.. Unoptimized engine... Trucks interior quality is so poor made, so we are forced to use mods. But mods!.. This game will be live only with mods? Imagine this game without dear community of modders... Compare this game with Omsi Bus Simulator(2008) and ETS 2 (2012)... Maybe Omsi has bad graphics, but its gives real simulator feel. First time when i was launched the game, i didn't known how to start up the engine... It was so diffcult... Thats a real simulator, not this one :/.. You can open your door, open windows, and other stuffs like that..
      ETS truck behaviour is just tedious. By this they're gonna again sell crap American Truck Simulator (really ETSAmeri), they're just giving out new few trucks, and map. Other is almost copy-paste.. Again with bad physic, unnatural sounds, towns with 2 narrow streets! Amazing!..
      You just don't have truck feel, but you have van or something smaller..
      I think it's time for general improvements

      Delete
    2. I wonder what's SCS employeers doing whole time..
      If they really worked they could bring us a real simulator, not fake simulator.. This game has only real truck logos.. nothing more :/ very sad.. I just can't understand why people getting orgasm on every post from SCS that, they bring us ironic comedy paintpacks (dragons, santa, witchers),

      Delete
    3. I'm no longer playing ETS2. Waiting for a major change in the game. I think I could even drive the bus, but especially me this does not drag. The excuse that we have to give time for major changes, it is strange. So much time and nothing, not even rigid trucks. It doesn't look good at all.

      Delete
  49. I must to admit, there where some little improvements (seat adjustment, metallic paint, the new sky system (but the initial was CRAP), some changes in the shitthy AI from beginning, Scandinavia (the only region that worths be played), some changed sounds (there are many more unrealistic), customizing your route)
    Overall, at the moment, in terms of graphic, this game looks like a 2009-2010 game, AND with lot of Lacks.
    Long life RTA (despite in this way the game becomes very expensive).

  50. Multilayer is the component that is important to me with a rich virtual trucking company element, it would be also really cool if you could update quicker and add the new models of trucks when they are released in the real world, the new renault looks really cool.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We will not update the game any quicker than nessary and the reason is that if we update quicker there will be more bugs present and will ruin the game for you guys, and you can't add new trucks right when they are relised because then SCS Software will have to moddel the truck before it is relised and that means that they have to moddel consept moddels whitch are incompleate and change frequantly, they are also confidentual and are not released for public vewing exept in motoring exibitions. Release dates also differ from country to country.

  52. Dear SCS,
    why you suport this game with useless feature? You waste a time, and your way is wrong. You should abandom this project a long time ago. This game is too old, engine and graphic is from the previous decade. Take all the man power and make something new (new engine with easier and quicker worlbuild and make new game). ATS is a big mistake. U waste a lot of time making copy ETS. U got money to do something new, not only "copy and paste" games

    regards to Akula. He long ago understood that, what others dont understand.

  53. The newest beta version cannot be accessed, the steam 's feedback let me check that the steam is running, or my steam is the newest version, or my game is the newest version, however, when I degrade the game to 1.21, it works fine. So it is absolutly the problem of the beta version.I cannot start the game at all.

  57. boa noite. se essa pergunta já tiver sido feito peço desculpas,pois, não deu pra ler todas as postagens.
    em primeiro lugar quero parabenizar a scs pelo jogo, já rodo a uns quase 2 anos e sou viciado muito bom.
    sobre a nova atualização uma coisa que tenho notado quanto ao uso das cargas pelo word of truck e que ha uma incompatibilidade com relação aos mods de cargas e mapas...
    ex: no meus caso jogo usando um mod de mapas chamado Brasil total,se eu pegar uma carga do word of truck o nome das cidades e das cargas fica diferente causando confusao nao hora de escolher o trabalho isso para nao dizer a distancia ... se pegar uma carga cuja viagem sera de 200km no word of truck no mapa mod essa distancia aparece em torno de uns 500km.
    bom a minha dica e a seguinte porque a desenvolvedora nao cria uma maneira dos servidores indentificarem as cargas e cidades atraves de algum arquivo no mod tipo o aquivo que fica o nome das cidades por exemplo, uma vez que carregasse essas informacoes a compatibilidade com os mods seria maior e nao necessitando do servidor carregar todo o mod para si. mais apenas as informacoes importantes como(nome da carga, distancias entre cidade,nome das empresas, nome das cidades etc...) ja olhei os arquivos de mods de mapas e essas informações ocupam pouco espaco, o que nao prejudicaria em nada a conexão.

  58. truck behavior this is a load of crap this is not how a truck behavior works they only jack knife if is going to fast on a corner and slamming on the brakes or in black ice or snow it doesn't react by jack knifing on regular rain if you SCS really listen to us of what we want on this wannabe simulation game we what real braking pressure when stepping on brake pedal if you leave or apply to mach brake pressure on the truck all the tires will lock up and to get real visual truck damage if you crash if you are going to fast on a speed bump get broken axles flat tires and get overheating brakes to rely more on the jake brake on down hills ore run out of brake if you're not careful wen using the brakes and fix transmission gears make them more realistic i feel like i'm driving a car not a truck i don't feel the weight of the truck if you read this SCS make all this changes and every body will love this Game or for future duplicate from ETS 2 named (ETSamerican truck sim )

  60. So practically, 2 years took to make a tire sound? And is not even sound like tire, sounds like a old washing machine..
    When i can expect features like getting dirt, real fog?
    2025? YAY, they're sold over 2m copies only on Steam.
    But as far as i can see, SCS is not trained to hard work, so people stop lying yourself that SCS is working really hard, but they do nothing..

    1. Sad what happened with SCS, that they turned into on DLC machines. They probably should abandon "Euro Truck Arcade", and sell to someone else who can really care about "simulator"

      Delete
    2. Exactlty that is the problem, but if I am not mistaken they hinted that further map DLC's are on the way. Maybe ,,a Going West,,map DLC would be great. However, making a rough guess, it should be out 2025 or later. It's just ludicrous having to wait three years and barely anything has changed, apart from some trivial cosmetic updates!

  69. Cant I drive company owners trucks and do world of trucks contracts for that company? Maybe get hired or something? That would be cool!

    And FYI in most states in north America truck speed limits are the same as cars 70mph to 75mph, in a few its 55mph or 65mph just a suggestion for American Truck Simulator. Most owner operators truck are unrestricted because its theirs trucks and most company trucks are restricted at 68mph. Thats just kind of a standard.

  73. Aos "Desenvolvedores": acabo de entregar a 57ª entrega entre longa distância e massa, infelizmente está foi com atraso por falta de conectividade do WofT, ficando em minha ficha como atraso. Mas o caso não é este, rodo sempre em probabilidade 9 da barra de chuva por ser há mais forte entre todos os estágios, mas aqui no WofT ela está enfraquecida, os pingos parecem cair ao redor do caminhão e não nele, perdeu o corpo e o pouco nevoeiro que tinha. Por favor, voltem há encorpa-la, como também lhe dar mais efeitos, e se for possível como ouço os pingos contra a lataria, porque não os trovões? Por ora obrigado e agradeço pelo belo trabalho que estão realizando, pois o sinto em cada entrega. Forte abraço.

    1. The "Developers": I just deliver the 57th delivery of long distance and mass, is unfortunately was delayed by lack of connectivity WofT, staying in my file as a delay. But the case is not this, squeegee always likely 9 of rain bar because it is stronger among all the stages, but here in WofT she is weakened, the drops seem to fall around the truck and not in it, he lost the body and the little fog that had. Please come back there it embodies, but also give you more effects, and if it is possible to hear the drops against the bodywork, why not thunder? For now thank you and thank you for the beautiful work you are doing because the feel for each delivery. Big hug.

  77. Soething doesn't work. After success in WOFT cargo delivery , with external link to the World Of Trucks i can sign another job.O.K. But from the Steam I go back to the ETS2, but the external linkforr the new cargo does't exist yet. It exist inly If I close the ETS2 & Open once again. So wery dificult is for every new delivery from WOFT to close the ETS2 & to open once again to found the new external link for it.Is there any simpliest way to making game contunuosly with lot of cargos from WOFT without closing the ETS2 in the midle time?

  79. Guys you need to come with damn new updates, like first person driver who is getting out of truck and walk on the damn street. I just want to feel like in real life, to check around the areas when i try park the damn trailer or hook up!!!!!! The game is awesome!

  80. Will be interesting to see how this improves/worsens the game. I have faith that SCS has a vision in mind which will create a fun and exciting MMO trucking genre.
    Sure I'd love to see more trucks and map expansions like everyone else as well as other features, but I don't think I would want to rush SCS due to their focus and the way they apply it.

    Either way, keep the updates coming.

    1. Well, you know what SCS is like.....

      Though they commonly complete projects faster than one's natural ability to die of old age, they haven't yet mastered the art of getting things done at least as quickly as a snail's pace.

      Thats one of the major reasons why its so hard to maintain enthusiasm, and interest in the game. It takes SCS so long to offer even the smallest addon, that boredom sets in.... and the game is left always seeming old, and missing stuff.

      We end up feeling so hungry for something new, that we are willing to take pretty much anything just to finally get something. But that something is always so small, that it really doesn't satisfy that hungar, and we wait again what feels like forever for yet another small trinket.

      At the end of it all.... when you look at the game we have now, compared to the game we had a couple years ago.... what's really different? It feels like i'm still playing the same game today that I started with over 2 years ago. I admit, I can move the seat, and I have 2 wiper settings now, plus, the speed can clearly be seen on the GPS... but outside of that, what's really different today about the game I started with back in 2013?

    2. When you consider the amount of productivity that comes out of the SCS office, Its sometimes easy to think of their work place as being a do-drop-in center, with pizza boxes all over the place. People coming and going as they please, boasting about their party weekend with their feet up on the desk.

      Its amazing sometimes just how slow, and non productive the SCS team is. The amount of time we have to wait for things is simply exhausting.

      When we do hear of a major project, not only do we have to wait sometimes years to get it, but the project itself seems to be centered around, and for the purpose of, getting us all to play the same game again, under a new disguise. ATS, is pretty much ETS2. New modded map, and some new trucks. That's it... same game. The WOT contracts is just the same old deliveries we've been making for years.... but now we get to make those deliveries "AGAIN". Just online instead.

      Its gets frustrating sometimes trying to maintain interest in this game.

    3. Regards to MuzickMage and Akula, understood what other players doesnt.. We wating 2 dam years to get just tire sounds? We need to wait 1 more year just for MAN Euro6 ?..
      We wait almost 2 years for ATS (a duplicate of ETS), just to get some bad handmade weigh station, another crap physic, crap arcade handling... Very sad.. They became a DLC company

    4. Thanks for the link Mihai.
      It reminds me of how slow and ineffective SCS people really are. Looking at the link i saw its dated more then a year ago... WTF??? and we still dont have rigid chassis in the game. How damn difficult can it be???

      @Hye Xenforo MacedoniaNS
      I wouldnt expect to much content in the future from SCS when it comes to ETS2. SCS is looking at numbers, and those number are saying that there is a drop in the number of people playing ETS2. They are putting most of their "effort" in ATS and testing it with ETS2 as this 2 games share the same engine. As you, I am also frustrated by the amount of issues that have not been addressed in ETS2, but i have given up hope that they will ever be, and to be honest i really would not care if they would be, as the game is running on a ancient engine. As with most of the things in life its sometimes easier to start from scratch rather then trying to patch and old game.

      Its a damn shame that SCS are planning to sell us the same shit, repacked...
      I wouldnt mind paying for DLC's in ATS as long as it would be on a decent game engine and not the same prisma3d shit from ETS2...

      Delete
    5. I for one have stopped playing this shit until they will come out with some some real improvements. And fuck ATS:California ! SAme old shit repacked ??? and what about the other states??? Will follow as DLC until 2020 ?
      For fuck sake ETS2 has been around for 3 years and Europe its still not complete...

      if they do is going to be one of those geeks you see on youtube taking people around the scs office to see 1 or 3 people accting like they are working on samething and scs says we got over 50 workers ? 50 for what to clean the bathrooms

      How much? 3 years just to make 2-3 new trucks? That sucks lol. See the member above me what said: They got 50 workers, but only few of them are working.. Others i have doubt doesnt come to work, or they're cleaning bathrooms.. Instead they focus on updating game engine, improving game handling, sounds, and all other shits, but they do paintpacks (dragon,santa,witchers,drakula)

  88. for me the path is simple: SCS wants me not to invest more money in their game(s), and buy tractors and trailers from RTA- people who know how to design a truck and trailers, people who know what QUALITY is ! Can/t wait to see their MAP.
    The only brilliant thing who happend talking about paid things was Scandinavia. The rest... all garbage. Michelin DLC is good looking, but preety sure will be expensive.... for just 1 brand.

    About this damn beta, I don't hurry, but when is definitely out, I expect to run appropriate, without bugs.For the moment I have more bugs and little problems with it, including a big one: can't get out from querrys !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  93. The guys from RTA Mods are planning to make a damn new game with damn new graphics and damn real trucks and enviroment sounds, but they don't have enough money for a project like this, but iamagine if another truck simulator company are going to make this kind of simulator game, it would be an explosion of happy gamers and SCS will not be the only one company. The competition will be very tight, but for now SCS don't have competition and they are doing what they want!! Pretty sad!!

  102. the stability had been perfect until the beta, so hopefully SCS have picked up on it. if I corner any faster 40mph,the trailer leans to the opposite side and eventually causes the truck to over turn. I have no physic mods and have never had the problem until now.

  106. my truck is currently a 680 v8 TGX with RUNNER tires all round and 6x2/4 mid-lift. same customization I always use. the is happening with no rain. it's almost as if the trailer connection pin is sitting on top of the 5th wheel rather than hooking up to it causing to like as if it's trying to balance itself for stability.
