Re: Quitting game while running an external contract

Thanks for the replies explaining how external contracts run in real time. Unfortunately, I can get to the game only once in 24 hours, and that for a limited amount of time, usually no more than 2 hours. I really do like the external contracts feature, particularly since you can't reload a saved gam...

Quitting game while running an external contract

How can I quit the game while running an external contract without being penalized for a late delivery when I resume the game?

Must an external contract be completed in the session it is initiated?

Music Player Scrolls Through MP3 Files Without Playing Them

I have trouble getting the music player to work (ETS2 19.x and Windoze 7). I have copied mp3 files to the ETS2 music directory, and used shortcuts to no avail. What happens is that when I click the play button or double click the mp3 file to play, the music player starts scrolling through all of the...

Re: Game crashes ..

You are too diplomatic in your response. A "mod" is not the responsibility of the base software developer. If a user's implementation of a game environment depends upon 3rd party software, then they are on their own. This is comparable to complaining about dropping a 1970 Oldsmobile 442 engine into ...

Re: ATS

What I would really like to see is getting ETS off of Steam, or at least give access to ETS betas and products outside of that website. Myself and every other SCS customer do not need another source of advertisement barrages. ETS is a brilliant product. 1.9.x is good enough that I had no problem sta...

Missing Vehicles

How about some motorcycles? Nothing more distracting than a crotch rocket whipping in and out in front of you. It would also be OK to see some civilized touring bikes such as BMW, Ducati, and HD. It would be great to include emergency vehicles in the AI. Think of all the wonderful ways to screw up t...

Traffic Control Signals

As currently implemented, they are a total pain in the ass. The cycles are too short. You should be able to get through a green with the front axle of the truck without penalty. I always assume that the damned light is going to flip to red. I don't know about Europe, but here in the backwoods of USA...

Re: Mouse Steering Sensitivity

My machine is a POS Dell Inspiron 580, I3 Intel CPU (not much faster than a i-486), and an onboard Intel graphics chip with a dead slow frame rate that won't let me load up my EVGA GTX 560. In the "controls" panel, what has worked for me has been to set "steering sensitivity" about 3-4 clicks to the...

Re: American internet radios - links to streams

This took a lot of work on your part. I've trashed my day trying to find audio links that are not tied to specific applications. Thanks.
