Can't refuel in game Peterbilt 379

#1 Post by HerpyDerpy22 » 30 Oct 2014 06:14

I needed to refuel the peterbilt so I stopped at a gas station but it wouldn't refuel (as if the gas tank was full). It would make the two sounds (taking the hose of the pump, then placing the hose back) and nothing happened. Is it possible for someone to make a mod that would fix this (and possibly another one to slow down the clock and the resting frequency). Thanks.

I'm guessing this Peterbilt you're on about is a Modded Truck as there are no licensed trucks in this game.
But what I'd recommend is that your version is updated to the latest version of ALH, which fixed many bugs that the original game had!

And regarding the clock speed and sleeping pattern. Unfortunately, there's nothing much you can do about that - as it's the way the game was coded - for 24hrs to pass in 24 minutes..

No this is the unlicensed 379. The Pacific.

Well, I finally found my American Long Haul Disk and installed it on my PC and took the truck for a drive to a Fuel Station.
When the engine was turned off, it fueled up like it was meant to and refused to refuel when the engine was running. If you're engine isn't running when you're attempting to refuel - maybe the best option is to try and reinstall your game...

umm
24 Hours is 8 hours in town.
24 Hours is 72 minutes in Europe
24 Hours is 96 minutes in the UK

I don't think 24 hours is 24 minutes anywhere in the game?

I wasn't aware that the UK featured in 18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul?!

Maybe you should read what section of the forum you're in before you start banging away at the keyboard? ;)

This may be an old topic, but are you sure you're not holding down the key (not sure which key it is, it's been a long time) to refuel? Pressing it will not refuel the truck, you have to hold it down.
