this was more for him then for you, i dont mind seeing them also, they are part of the aesthetic of the truck, a deliberate design choice, people who moan about visible screws that are purposefully placed and think it makes it look cheap dont know what they are talking about :rofl:

Exactly, brushed metal and visible screws is a premium touch!

SCS has placed the mirrors exactly where they need to be. IRL thats where the mirrors are. Truck mirrors cause large blind spots which hide cars and pedestrians at intersections etc. Manufacturers are aware of this and have built trucks with mirrors in better positions. The Benz which has mirrors as screens in the A pillars is a good example of this and will probably be the future for some trucks. The limitation is in your FOV. A PC screen can't recreate the POV of the human eye. As mentioned above, there is a mod which fixes this issue for both the Mack and the Inter

Is the placement of the mirror really enough to say "worst truck ever"?
agreed

Count me in on this

If you're afraid something is hidden behind the mirrors wait a few secs to let it reveal itself
Otherwise you might be delayed a few hours or not arrive at all

I just bought a Mack Anthem for TruckersMP. I hate it! But, I hate all stock trucks. I have an R-model Mack that will outpull any two stock trucks that you want to hook together. All the stock trucks remind of those slow underpowered Internationals I used to drive in the real world.

I know it is not a solution everyone can use, but I run triple monitors which helps to replicate the FOV - I can see the right mirror and look out the passenger window while driving - and the Mac Anthem is one of my favorite to drive with this setup.

Yup, this is the whole purpose of the latest builds we have
I assuem the Anthem (49X or Cascadia) is awsome in the triple monitor configuration?

I'm using the Anthem in TMP because it has the most powerful engine and is the only truck that has a 12 speed available. It seems to have more torque than all the other trucks too. However, those big ugly mirrors are a menace to visibility.
