    Careful with that load, some of those forum posts are pretty volatile...

    well over the course of the weekend i paid off my initial loan (40k of 80k outstanding). so now just have the remainder of my 320k loan but that is manageable. other drivers are still being a bit hit and miss, some days bringing in 2k per job, some days bringing in 80 per job and other days making a loss.
    i think both drivers have level2 long distance and one has lv3 high value while the other has lv3 fragile cargo.
    would getting a central european garage help? at the mo its just me and the 2 drivers in sheffield. i've been looking at getting one in dortmund area to hopefully spread the jobs out a bit.

    Getting 1 garage in every country helps, I pay around 0.99 per litre for fuel at my own garages

    i can't afford that yet. i have about 60k in the bank, and 4k coming out each day for the loan. i'm making about 10k profit a day after all fuel/pay/servicing. and each garage is about 80k to start off with isn't it?
    is there a specific skill i should be levelling the other drivers up in to get higher paid jobs? most of the drivers on the agency page are 0.8 skill and have one or two skills in high/fragile/just in time

    hmm, not good, if you can, buy a new gfx card. Like I said it isn't the best one to be running that game.

    at the very least, a 5450 will run the game smoothly at 50FPS on low, slightly jerky at 25fps on medium and very jerky on 10fps on high

    I have fixed it now. I used ATI drivers instead of MSI and works alot better. Settings on simple but low/med.

    I will look for a card though. Just cant really justify it currently.

    EDIT

    Would this card be ok

    What's your budget? I have a GTX760 that I picked up for around the 200 mark (I think) and loving it.

    if 65 is your limit, then you would be better off with any of these

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-HD6...=graphics+card

    They have more bang for buck so to speak, and will run the game much better. The last 2 digits are more important than the first 2, so a xx70/xx90 series is better than a xx50 series


    *edit*

    Out of the 3, go for the first one if possible.

    I'll be honest, being docked 320 for this wasn't too bad. The recovery cost because I then couldn't drive off was annoying though
