I would like to see my drivers on road. From the map, I got to know that I overtook one of my drivers and that's no close to realism. I remember people saying this feature existed in one of the 18 WoS games. Hoping to see this in ATS too.

^Traffic mods. You can always go in a tweak them to your liking. Cip has a pretty good traffic mod that I like us when I do use traffic mods.

Double Post Merged

And if i wish Something of Scs Software, is that they give some rework of the old Iveco Stralis, man, that truck looks like imported from a ETS 1... Always that i drive it i switch the interior with codes with the Hi-Way

this feature existed in 18 WoS Petal the the Metal and the only reason you could see your drivers on the road was because every AI truck in the game functioned like a player which meant that there were only like 20 trucks on the entire map that were generated when your profile was generated. and you would be able to hire those drivers and change their truck and what not.

now i did make a mod for 18 WoS PttM to expand it to 150 drivers and because of the absolutely tiny map scale it did make seeing truck more normal but seriously bogged down the loading times to spawn in each truck.
I'm on a mission to ensure the city of Pittsburgh is accurately represented in ATS.

Yeah I remember SCS commenting about hired drivers a little while back. At the time, the game didn't track drivers. We can now see them on the map but not on the road. So they might be getting a tad closer to tracking on the road itself. The biggest issue I see is the massive amount of drivers we can hire. Most pc's can't handle this I am sure. Or if SCS does bring this, there is a cap number that the game can spawn in (x) amount of square miles/km.

Guess what: in ETS2 a few days ago I fired all of the hired drivers I had (200+), I sold all trucks, except for one exemplar of each of the default SCS trucks for mod testing purpose, and I sold all garages, except for a few scattered all over Europe for easy fast travel. I don't need those drivers with 3 billion euro in my bank account. Probably I'm gonna do the same in ATS.
And in the case I need more money, I can easily activate my cheat mod anyway. :-D
With that cheat mod in my mind, what's the point of having hired drivers anyway? I guess it's fun for vanilla players who just started a new profile.

see I'm the opposite Vinnie Terranova, I love having hired drivers, my only gripe now is that while I have every garage purchased there are no where near enough drivers available to fill every garage spot.

SCS can we please have some more drivers available to hire?

I don't buy all garages and I don't like a lot of drivers either. Eventually, you just gain too much money and can't get rid of it. I use .5 income factor but it does't matter. I do have 2-3 drivers per garage on my main profile. But on my new profile I started last summer for map mods, I only have 2 hired drivers and I like it. I'd like to eventually trim my main profile to one driver per garage. As more states comes, I will shift them around. I would like to eventually see my own drivers on the road though. Especially if we every get liveries that we can make company trucks with.

@flight50

I managed to counter this weakness of SCS on my PROMODS profile on ETS2, by modifying the painted truck of jazzycat and by adding a skin of my company, and by increasing the number of spots in the game, it gives me the impression to cross a driver of my company lol.
