@55sixxx actually SCS has done a lil bit of what you ask. I asked several months back after seeing the new truck stop mod from Ernst.veliz. He has a great concept but the issue is that he went beyond truck stops and rest stops and modified it too much imo. I asked Max and actually on some of the prefabs, the truck stops are more crowded. Not jammed packed but its denser than what it use to be. You can see this only on a few of the truck stops. The new truck stop in Vegas and outside of Vegas off US-93 and I-15. I am sure there will be some more to come.

I was looking at my World of Trucks achievements from past events, I was reminded of this event that SCS did three years ago. I really like this event because it was really simple, yet still interesting and fun. A lot of the World of Trucks events that SCS has been doing since then are either related to real world events or the release of something new. While those events are cool and fun in their own way, I think SCS should also do some more events like this one with a much simpler goal and purpose. One of the other things I really loved about this event was that it didn't have a specific area of the map or specific routes for the player to drive. You could haul a load anywhere as long is it was over the 100 mile minimum.

This idea may of already been thought of or in the works, but, since someone done a ownable version of the fuel tanker had me thinking.
How about add more loads for the fuel tank trailer from gallon oil refineries to go to all gas stations in a certain radius away from the refineries and or tranship facilities, sorta like real life fuel haulers.
Out loaded, back empty, also along with this, fix the gas station models on the map so all of them can be delivered to.
There may be some of us interested in doing things like this

Honestly, I'd like to see SCS open up to delivering Jet fuel to Airports. Diesel to truck stops and garages rather than make all gas stations available. Fuel to places that have huge generators or facilities with the huge liquid storage gas tanks would also be cool. I'd assume commercial farms might have such storage containers on site.

@Ernie D I agree and support that idea as well. Same goes for containers as well.

I'd like to see the distance to the intermediate waypoints on the GPS map so I dont have to keep looking at the main map to see how far it is.

Also, I wish I had more control over my employees; where to send them, to what jobs, and what trailers to take. Also seeing lights from distant houses on mountains. (Maybe this already exists but I'm not seeing it).

What would be really nice to see is a more simulation of truck maintenance.
There is a game released here in Brazil (I think it was made by a company from Argentina) called Grand Truck Simulator 2, it's only for Android.
It has some outstanding maintenance features such as engine oil and water level, transmission oil level and differential oil level. If you let the engine oil too low, the pistons rings will start to wear and then if you replace the oil level, the engine burns all the oil (like it is in a real engine with worn rings) and the oil level will not remain still until you make the maintenance and change the rings.

So, in the game, before you start a trip, it is recommended for you to walk out the truck, stand beside the engine hood and check oil and water level, and if they're low, you should refill them to avoid trouble.

This kind of simulation would be so good to have in ATS/ETS2 to bring the operational and maintenance side of trucking, not only driving as it is today.

I really recommend SCS to download Grand Truck Simulator 2 in some Android phone and take a look at some of it's features.

That was already included in the last 1.38 update.

@gryper. As Some newbie Driver stated, look at the July 14th blog. Scroll down to the features section. "Navigation ETA to the next waypoint in route advisor and in world map"
