Re: What's your favorite truck brand?

My go-to is the MAN TGX- ideally an XXL for the virtually-unrivalled visibility, but I'm very happy with my 320hp 4x2 XL. My second choice would be Volvo, then Scania. Mercedes are decent to drive but expensive. Ivecos are also pretty nice to drive but have no design, the new Renaults have nice inte...

Re: Unrealistic AI Traffic

Traffic density is not in the game, the streets are mostly empty. Empty cities, empty highways.... Traffic density is there, just not balanced right- the cities generally need to be busier, and some smaller roads shouldn't have as much traffic as they do. It's most noticeable in Romania, where even...

Re: Favorite trailers/loads

Car hauler jobs are usually very well-paying and only weigh 7 or 8 tonnes, so even with my old weedy 430hp 4x2 Kenworth I could pull them no problem. Tankers are also a good one for pay- if you can find them- but they tend to be between 14 and 21 tonnes, so not good for weedier trucks.

Re: would like to see the driver in the truck.

I'm not sure a full character customisation system is necessary (not like a GTA online or even FH4 kind of thing) but I'd be happy if the driver in the cab looked more like the profile pic we chose when starting the savegame.

Re: Kenworth Trucks Discussion Thread

Now that I know what the C500 is I just have to vote for it. Until then I'll stick with my trusty T680.

Re: american truck simulator more enjoyable then ETS

It does feel bigger, though- probably because of how much more fleshed-out the urban areas are.

Re: american truck simulator more enjoyable then ETS

SCS has significantly developed their map design over the years- look at Germany in ETS vs the Road to the Black Sea expansion. The ATS map is all newer, more realistic, and overall better, so even the non-DLC parts feel more lifelike.

Fined for going through a green light?

I was inbetween freight market deliveries in Sierra Vista, having just dropped off a trailer at Coastline Mining, and the light at the intersection was green for me (I was turning right anyway, though). However, I got a red signal offence for driving through. Can anyone explain this? I would attach ...

Re: Truck falling over

I don't think it's specifically those trucks, as I've managed to roll other models as well. It's sometimes affected by trailers though- construction machinery is often very top-heavy, which exacerbates the issue. The best thing you can do is try to straight-line the corner where possible (take the r...
