Can't speak about American, but on Euro, you can manage your own company, hire other drivers etc.

 

But mostly yes, from 15 hours of gameplay it's mostly drive from point A to B. But that's the point of it. I usually play when there's a podcast I want to listen to or just take it easy and relax.

I'm sure it's the same story for Euro Truck Sim 2 as well. Managing a company is fun.. but it's really boring and repetitive in the beginning due to the amount of quick jobs you need to complete in order to gain any decent amount of cash.

it looks like it would be fun sometimes.

can someone tell me if there's more traffic though??

 

in the videos there it seems like the highways are mostly empty.

it would be more fun and interesting if there was some terrible/rushhour/gridlock traffic in some places. are the roads always so empty?

Yes, and as Pavel said (CEO at SCS Software during Squirrel's Stream) they also plan to finish Italy, and are working on Ireland, France and plan to do some parts of Russia. Probally we'll see those by the end of 2049.

Nowhere in it did he confirm working on ireland or russia. Saying it's on the team's long wishlist confirms absolutely nothing.

Besides, the mod mappers need space to work as well.

 

Promod were working on Eire, but SCS's long term plan halted them. I guess we will see something eventually, but when? Who knows....

 

If you don't know some Promods developer are employee at SCS, so some ideas comes from the mod itself :)

First impressions after an hour of gameplay is the map seems tiny, but as I have both DLCs and Promods on ETS, it probably is. Pretty much the same game otherwise. I hope someone ports the two trucks over to ETS pretty soon.

One thing I wish it did was detect I had ETS and copy all the settings,was a pain having to edit all the controls again. I've just posted some early screenshots on my Twitter

$1000 for speeding, as you only started with $1500 that took a chunk out of it!

They need to reduce the fines to realistic prices running a Red Light is maybe a $100-$150 fine same with Speeding...

 

I got a ticket for running a red light when i didn't even run it, I'll admit i stopped short but i didn't run it...So i already lost $1,400 and i've only been playing for 20 minutes...

I think if the community pushes hard enough, we could have our voices heard. The fines are pretty ridiculous.. crazy how the toll booth costs like $25 but a speeding ticket is over $700..

Don't think it will take long before a mod comes out that fixes this though :p

AFAIK there was a text or script file with ETS2 that was able to be edited so you could disable all of the warnings and fines. At least that's what I heard :p Would be nice if that was possible with this.

I though the tumbleweeds were Deers running across the road so i stopped, Kinda cool how they added small details like this

I'm surprise there is no fine or anything for doing this...Yeah i missed my exit

Also i had an accident on the highway in front of a cop and the cop turned on his sirens but i couldn't see if his lights were on or not.

Man, the cops seem to magically appear at the most inconvenient times in this game. I've been fined four times for "speeding", once for "running a red light", and once for forgetting my headlights.

 

:p

Disable Fines:My Documents\ATS\yourProfile\ then open config.cfg and change "g_police "1"" to 0 and save.

I see that my home town has made it into American Truck sim according to a video I watched. Now I feel obligated to buy it. Too bad I have to wait because some jackass got into my bank account and now I need a new bank card and everything.

 

If it has controller support I hope it's good this time unlike ETS2.

Controller Support is exactly the same as ETS2 but make sure you check to make sure the Acceleration/Breaks isn't Center/Inverted if it change it to Normal or your truck will take off by itself and you won't be able to reverse

The controller support is the same as ETS 2, but in ETS 2, every button on a controller is mappable through the menus. You can use the key binding menu to map any key to a controller button.

 

I have everything sorted so I drive 'remote control style' on a 360 gamepad. Left analogue controls steering, while I pull that down for 'enter' at paybooths or resting, and my right stick handles acceleration and such. But even my hat controls triggers are mapped, for main beam, airhorn and the retarder controls.

 

The controller mapping is the best I have seen in a game in ages.

 

As for ATS? I am enjoying it. I like the idea of starting again and I will be investing in my first truck tonight. Not gonna rush as I have just done a few runs up and down I-5 and Route 99, gonna reach Nevada tonight.

Was thinking last night, don't know what SCS has planned, but I'd love to see a recreation of the Ice Roads on ATS. I know they'd not be able to do the grip right but just the scenery would be awesome

Well... I found something a tad interesting here... Turns out the giant rubber ducks have some friends...

If you didn't know about the ducks then... Well... You get to see them as well. If you don't know where they are, they're over on route 375 in Nevada, near Vegas.

Yes, there's more traffic, and the behavior is more believable.

Captain special over here has managed to stall his truck twice in auto :D

 

I also had an AI truck driver pull out on me... Can't say that's happened to me before.

I had an ai car drive into my trailer as I was taking a left turn. Instead of giving me distance as I had to take a big turn, went full into me.

 

In other news, the multiplayer is released soon, they've got it nailed down already and I think it just needs the web Api before they can releases it
