Re: Add sound to a working refrigerated trailers ?

Patience trucker friends. The SCS crew are working hard, under pandemic conditions.
No doubt they will continue with iterative improvements, as they've diligently been doing for years. :)

Stay safe and wear a mask.

Re: Dutch Licence Plates

Off topic - those are a couple nice looking trucks (the GTS and the Hartman). Not flashy, but clearly work horses. In the GTS photo, is that a "conventional" Scania T, with an R500 badge!? Wasn't the T discontinued in 2005? Would that be an old photo, or are there still T on the roads? I thought the...

Re: Mega Shifter

... Still using the one with the SCI knob on it he built me 6 months ago or so, still works flawlessly. ... What is SCI? Doing a brief search on the web I don't see them as an IRL truck aftermarket company. I know SCI is in the ATS steering wheel DLC, so I'd guess they were an SCS made up "aftermar...

Re: Flatbed cargo DLC

Hauling military equipment is different. It puts the player, and the game, in a role supporting the military-industrial complex.

I am appreciative SCS have maintained distance from that.

Re: FPS

Not at the computer now, but I believe the FPS can be toggled ON via the developer console with:

Code: Select all

g_fps

Re: Revamping the PACCAR trucks

Not all ATS jobs are long haul OTR. I'd say at least 1/3rd of the semi-trucks I encounter IRL in urban eastern US are 4x2, ranging from deliveries to construction. The longer ATS wheelbase trucks are a fun challenge to master, but it really would benefit new users to work up having a starter 4x2 opt...

Re: General AI Discussion

... except by a new teenage driver, or a "polite" geriatric driver.
I seem to encounter this silliness on IRL roads regularly.
Game AI is just simulating and keeping us on our toes. :lol:

Re: Rest In Sleeper

gandalf7472000 don't forget to add the random risk of a clueless motorist crashing into the illegally parked truck on the shoulder. I've known truckers that got rear ended while parked on the shoulder stopping to help someone else during the daytime (not even trying an overnight sleep). Worse, ther...

Re: American internet radios - links to streams

Re: Special Transport addition: Windmill Blade

I am giddy with excitement at the idea of such a cargo option!

We need more windmills.
