[POLL] Make online job search-area expandable, even when jobs exist in closest area

Well, sometimes when using own trailer, especially non box/tarp trailers, cargoes could be rare in some places. Like if the base search area finds only one or two different loads and you doesn't like the destinations, or cargoes. It would be nice to be able to expand that search area manually, the same way the game does automatically if there isn't any loads in the base area.

You can always work around that problem today by just take the existing jobs and then abandon them, until they are gone and the game automatically expands the search area. But that doesn't seems fair :lol:

I voted for option #3 :lol: :lol: :lol:

No seriously, good idea!
I want to see online jobs from Aberdeen while being in Istanbul. We have this in the normal jobmarket, why not in the online market?
I would also like to see more jobs from one city, especially when you have promods and you are at the end of the World (Iceland, Svalbard etc), and you have job length on short, you still get jobs which are quite long across europe, since the game can't handle those areas i guess?

abasstreppas, I'm not exactly sure what you're getting at here. Ok, let's say I arrive and deliver in a city and there is no outbound load for my owned tanker trailer in that city, then, If I understand what you're saying, you want the game to show where the next nearest available loads for my trailer are? Is that right? Why not just click on the nearest discovered city and check for available loads? Is the question you raise due to 'undiscovered" cities not showing information on loads?

I agree with the basic issue - I've sometimes found myself 'sol' after delivering somewhere and there is no return load, which makes me slap myself upside the head and wonder why I did not check load availability at the destination city before i took the job to there in the first place. D'ohh.

Ah, ok, I did not realize this discussion was about the 'external'' cargo market!

to add to the idea, would be really great if WoTr would generate a cargo list depending on trailers, so each trailer type gets a job list of at least 10 jobs and not one general job list for all trailer where box trailer take 99% of the cargos, more then once i was frustrated when i changed trailers that i got no job whats o ever or only 2 or 3 jobs that send my all the way across Europe

I faced the same problem as carl1992. So I agree with the idea.

Weird I have mostly used the 6 bolster trailer
In this case only logs, planks or pipes are available in external cargo
