    Whilst the mrs and daughter play lego marvel on the xbox, I play this, then when the daughter has gone to bed and the mrs and I have had our time together (we set aside 90 mins each night, just us, be it dinner, talking, cuddling etc) then I went on it.

    also, I dial in from work and play during my lunch break, so gives me half hour of trucking, which is a 600 mile trip, so a nice little earner (or a big chunk from a longer trip)

    it isnt bad, reduces the FPS to around 10 FPS. Not killer, but not unplayable. Also fuel wise, I always fill up at my own stations, or if on the road, I attempt to fill up in luxembourg or poland.

    yeah but the fuel costs in say germany or UK, you are paying an additional 0.3- 0.7 Euros per litre, adds up to a lot over a year!

    It isn't lazy, it makes fiscal sense. I haven't taken a loan out yet either

    I took out an initial 80k loan which took back just over a grand a day repayments. then took out the full whack 300k loan to set up and repayments are just over 6k a day. luckily the jobs i'm doing myself are pulling in 18k a day, added with the two drivers means i'm getting about 20k a day on jobs, 2k outlay on wages/fuel and 6k repayments.
    plus as i had some capital already, i still have about 100k of the 300k loan in the bank, so i'm financially safe at the moment (providing i dont drive too stupid).

    is there a way you can pay back the loan quicker or are you set to the daily repayments? or can i just take out a payday loan to cover the 300k

    you are set to daily repayments as far as I am aware, but I havent touched the bank yet. It takes the fun out of starting small and working up. (In my opinion)

    Well i am still small and working up. I worked doing the quick jobs until I had about 30k then took out a loan for 80k to get my first truck (which i actually didn't use up until yesterday). i carried on doing quick jobs until i had about 70/80k in the bank and then wanted to look at setting up for myself, so got another loan which enabled me to get the small garage upgrade, two drivers and two more trucks.

    plus i dont know how realistic they intend to make it, so may as well get a loan now before they raise interest rates, cripple my business and i arrive back at the garage to find bailiffs there and end up having to torch the place to claim insurance

    haha. I just think it took the fun out (again my opinion). If I start again then I might take a loan to speed things along but meh, not really that interested. lol
