@flight50 I know the further east we go the more I will be vocal but given the scale I know why certain things were cut. I won't be so harsh about it either.

I somewhat agree with @angrybirdseller. Small bugs are minor. People will pick that apart for no reason. Just report it and move on. Its the major bugs that impede gameplay that should get put on blast like crashes and conflicts. They are the true game breakers. Everyone has their breakers. For me, sound, anti-aliasing, vegetation on the road, wrong spelling on sign, missing sign, wrong road markings....that stuff I can drive right past that spot and continue my journey. Solve it with a bug report. Report it and wait it out. Sound, I use a mod. Anti Aliasing, I run 200%, 32gigs of ram 1440 dpi 27" gsync with a 1080gpu. I can't complain graphically. Gameplay weighs more on my scale than visuals.

SCS can fix minor bugs within a week or two of the dlc releasing. Major bugs, that's what closed testing, eb and ob are for. If they sneak thru, that is what people should complain about. Minor bugs is a polishing thing and I don't think they should hold a dlc for minor bugs. Nothing will be perfect. No matter how much time you spend trying to be perfect, there will be something missed. This by no means is advocating rushed or incomplete. I'm strictly referring to minor bug issues that do not affect game play. I have yet to have major issues with most updates. I had a lil thing with DX11 on Win7 but so did others. Once I upgraded to Win10, zero issues since then. I am also fully aware of mods that can break. That's why I run several profiles for those purposes. Learn what mods will break the game and account for the. You can't update your game and still expect your conflicting mods to work.

@Larry71490 yeah I hear ya. Same here. When Texas rolls around, I am sure I may point out a few things if I am familiar with the area. But I will also speak on the limitations and state why I think this or that route was taken. If something can be tweaked I'll mention it. Otherwise, things will be what they are. Texas will be worse than Iberia I think in some ways. It won't be easy. The road network in Iberia is dense but its not Texas city dense. The exceptions are Madrid and Lisbon. Those two seem just as bad as most large US cities. Barcelona and Porto are not far behind but all the coastal cities have the ocean to play with. Madrid is landlocked. Fortunately only Toledo and Guadalajara (if mapped) are the only possible mapped cities I see being affected by spreading Madrid out.

Shouldn't it be "Alex a.k.a LondonLad" in the blog article?

I always listen to TruckersFM while I play the game so it's an important part of the game as well. Wish them a happy birthday!

It's also worth mentioning that this is the first time I see TruckersMP and convoys mentioned on SCS's official blog, as far as I remember.

I used to listen to the radio stations before the first engine sound mods. Haven't listened to them since. Never listened to TruckersFM though, no idea what's that about, nor do I particularly care tbh. Congratulations to them, I guess.

I sometimes listen to them. But I would mostly do it around the Christmas season for the Classic Christmas songs :3
