Some trailers such as flatbeds and curtainsiders can also be loaded from the side, so parking them against the wall/fence could be realistic.

If you drive with own it matters... I'm driving with own trailer since they were introduced. Haven't taken company trailer from that time...
Yeah, realistic parking between fence and other trailer... Just to unload with helicopter ;) i know curtainsider can be unloaded by roof... ;)

I think flatbeds and other non box/tarp trailers never should be unloaded at a dock. Tarps and box with side doors could be unloaded everywhere.

There are so many exiting possibilities in the loading/unloading part of the game that could be implemented, but are not looked into.

Flatbeds can and do unload at docks.

A lot of newer docks you back in with the doors closed and the loaders open them from the inside.

Hi people, just a small doubt. When we generally say mpg, it’s always US gallons right?

I don't come to this discussion very often anymore but I wanted to support Carl's list as well. That list is a really good one to start knocking items off that list in the upcoming years. 4-6 and 8-9 are strong on my list.

I also support the list of Carl. Those poinst have been brought up very often and it seems that, at least on the forum, most users agree with at least parts of it.

Yeah, this bothers me a lot too. Got a unique opportunity to back a reefer against a fence at the shipper and then at the receiver a while ago. :lol:

That's nice to know, Larry. Never heard of those docks, tbh. Thought you always have to open the doors before backing in, unless your trailer has a roll-up door, of course. :)

Yeah. I don't think they measure fuel consumption in miles per gallon anywhere outside the US.

I tend to agree with Carl as well, but bear in mind that people on the forum are a minority and probably among the most hardcore gamers, whilst the majority are casual people who care more about other things (there are even people who only drive compulsively from Calais to Duisburg on the multiplayer).
So scs has to balance all the features they put on the game.
