Route Advisor

#1 Post by Aedan Lugos » 12 Dec 2016 14:49

Would it be possible to update the route advisor so that when it is off it will still show usefull information on the screen. Example is in the linked screen shot.

I suggested this on the TruckersMP forms and was advised to post here.

I think that no. It impossible.
Advisor is one of bad moddable unit in game.
I just want to make a game and mods better.

Basically you are asking SCS to update the RA to work like Hemil's RA mod does?

Just use the mod. :)

With Truckers MP you cant use mods. With the normal route adviser there is no reason to have a dashboard GPS. if you close the route adviser completely you lose useful information such as ETS and distance to your destination. These are useful if you are playing with other people. With the way it currently is it breaks immersion and could easily be fixed.

Rather than change the UI Route Advisor, I think what would be better is if the built in GPS and the window accessory version actually showed ETA and distance to next waypoint (either custom or end point).

Real GPSs do, makes more sense than redoing the UI version. Now that we have the zoom feature so we can clearly see text on the small screens, there's really no reason they couldn't update the inbuilt/window ones.

That would also work. I agree that if the ETA and distance to destination was integrated into the dashboard GPS that would be perfect.

I agree, even if it is just integrating the info from the route advisor to the dashboard GPS that would be great.

Second this. It would be neat if the dashboard GPS could include ETA info.
