After looking at the current in-game ai "PostEd" mail delivery trucks, I'm wondering if here's an opportunity for SCS to expand the job industry a bit more. I think it would be awesome if SCS created a job industry for us to deliver "PostEd" trailers to various mail warehouse processing centers, airports, etc. A few updates ago, ownable insulated trailers (and I think dry-van trailers too) received a few door modifications. See below for examples:

Roll up door with liftgate

Both of these door configurations are very common on mail carrier trailers. Since these door configurations are already in-game, I imagine the trailer creations for deliveries and ai trucks shouldn't be too complicated. Now, I'm not as familiar with the mail industry so much- perhaps someone can further elaborate on how the mail industry framework is managed?

On another note, I came across the aero trailer wings. I'd be curious to know if SCS intends on adding this feature to deliverable box trailers and ai trailers? I'd love to see this added for more ai traffic and trailer diversity.

I would like to see a way to import Podcasts RSS feeds. Yes I do enjoy the radio and the ability to use MP3 files, but with the growth of podcasting it would be great to be able to lsiten to them via the truck while driving.

@StClinton I listen to podcasts and radio stations all the time while I'm in the game. My web browser works perfectly for that. The bonus is that since I have something else running I can pause the game and ALT-TAB to the browser and desktop. If you have nothing but the game running, ALT-TAB doesn't work. Today's computers are designed to run more than one thing at a time. ;)

Alt-Tab doesn't work for me; I have to use Ctrl-Alt-Del and then task manager to be able to do other things. But I don't listen to radio stations anyway. I used to listen to my own MP3 files that I put in the music folder of ATS, but I even don't listen to my own music anymore. I just listen to the sound of the engine, AI traffic, ambient sounds, etc.

@Vinnie Terranova Open notepad and minimize it then open the game, I bet your ALT-Tab will work. ;)

have you tried activating the steam overlay, then try to alt + tab (or control + esc) ? It works here.

There is a trick though. Assign Alt key to quick load/save option. the game will automatically pause while opening the load game section.

I should of added that it would be nice to be able to play podcasts while broadcasting on DLive, Steamcast, Steam, Twitch and other video streaming sites through the radio. I actually prefer broadcasting on Steam over the others, and when I tried setting up OBS to stream on Steam, I ran into problems. I also like the fact that I don't have to setup any special software to broadcast on Steam. I also enjoy watching the ATS streams on Steam over the others.

Have a great one

@StClinton actually that is a pretty interesting idea. I've never seen anyone request that before. I'd call it a "Mystery Load". I would be cool to toss in a few of those. Maybe a probably slider or check box that activates them. I know sometimes the game will give you a green box on the job list but it tells you what the product is. But that is typically a game file issue. SCS could purposely program something to make your idea work. I like it though. Now I don't know how often I'd use it but I'd try it.
One thing that I did forget to add was that it would be random every time as to what one would get. Let's say that they had one at Eddy's in Elko. I pull up and grab it, and it is glassware going to Oakland. The next time it would be empty pallets going to Winnemucca. The glassware would pay say 2K, while the pallets would pay 89k. The next time that I try it, the glassware would pay say 109K, while the pallets would be 3k. Player Rose might get 32K, while Player Jimmy might get $4k for the exact same job.

Yeah I like that too. I wonder if SCS would be interested in creating a new market for such or considering since they are trying to move towards a cargo based system, just add it to the existing Freight Market as a mystery random feature. I like the slider idea to it though for probability.
