    It will be better than an onboard but not massively so.

    My mate gifted it to me over the steam winter sale, I've not played it much. I like the idea of it but I give up during the grind of it all. I'll have to try and get up the motivation to give it another go, which is hard as assetto corsa and assassin creed 3 have me gripped. Maybe some mods would help.

    Yeah because you should have moved...the game is a bit crazy, also if you did above the limit in any shape then again, your fault.

    Doesnt matter, you have rear view mirrors, or wing mirrors, you should have seen them and moved. The game is a bit retarded that way but still it counts as your fault.

    Had a go last night for the first time in a while did 3 jobs, Manchester - Liverpool, Liverpool - Grimsby then Grimsby to Duisburg. Took around 45 minutes and I netted 170K between myself and other drivers in the company.

    The Ai cars can be stupid and some of the road rules are crazy, but you get used to it.

    At least they haven't added Milton Keynes. Pulling 100 crates of dynamite through a billion and a half roundabouts.....I'd be tempted to just offload the cargo and light it!

    How realistic are the locations? Are they modelled on the actual locations? Also, how realistic are the motorways? I mean obviously they can't be properly mapped out as that would mean for @nephilim's truck would have to be going 1,600mph to make London to Glasgow in 15 minutes are there at least landmark points en route so that you'd recognise roughly where in the country you're supposed to be?

    They are condensed. A "2 hour" journey should take no more than 4mins unless there are lots of winding roads. London to Edinburgh was an 8 hour journey, but all on the motorways and with a truck which has great fuel economy (8% extra) and a higher speed than your default engine, doesn't take long. 15 mins was an estimate, was probably more like 20-25mins

    Something to note - Many of the ADR jobs also have Fragile as a "hidden" bonus (you only see it after delivery). If you go for ADR points make sure to get a point early in Fragile as well. Fragile ADR jobs that are also long distance and important/urgent are absolute gold both in payment and experience. You can make 200k+ for 1 delivery across Europe.
