@Knightrider way ahead of ya on that lol xD
Nice :D
This time i'm not having the urge to go to quick jobs to complete them ASAP; the way these (denver airport and NAMIQ) are designed makes more easy to do just using our own trucks. For the Vitas however, I see myself using quick jobs because I already realized that its the 'rare' of the bunch, not to mention specific cargo and all.

I don’t hunt achievements and I hate when a load is rare because it is considered an achievement

I enjoy doing achievements that require lots of driving and not geting fined/damaged. I like to take my time with those, using my own tractor and trailer if possible.

On the other hand, RNG achievements that depends of the game spawning the job whenever it wants to, garage hopping until it shows up on the quick job list its the way.

I like to drive long distance using exclusively wot cargo market jobs.

I drive only my own truck and trailer and I don’t mind driving empty cross country to collect the load “I never teleport” but browsing the available jobs and not finding the load I wand because getting it is an achievement is annoying.

I agree, its the reason why its so hard to find a job for the cargo plane in NM for example. Yet its one of the most fun places to deliver to, I dont remember the last time I did it.

I can't stand it when games make something arbitrarily rare simply because it is an achievement. They do so simply to provide a nice challenge to the achievement hunters, allowing those few members of the community to ruin the fun for the rest of us. This is one of the reasons I wish developers like SCS would simply remove achievements entirely. This is a game about driving trucks and hauling cargo, exploring the beautiful scenery, and generally relaxing, NOT about grinding for stupid arbitrary goals.

The problem is not the presence of achivements, but how some are designed. They should just make the effort on driving, not randomly waiting.

IIRC the cargo plane from albuquerque was a heavily promoted feature from the DLC yet its ridiculously hard to find jobs for it. The problem is not attaching a achivement to it, but making it rare. There's no reward or satisfaction on randomness, even for achivement hunters.

@Knightrider " heavily promoted feature"
same can be said for the wind farms, basically made up 3/5s of the New Industries blog post yet i had to drive empty to Lamar to only just make it to the SellGoods in time to pick up the turbine tower after searching, driving and missing jobs the last few days
