    Both games are basically the same apart from some small updates in gameplay and engine. ETS2 has more content, trucks and mods. ATS looks better and is, for a european, more fresh in atmosphere. I honestly dig both. Just take your pick.

    Man, the new update is pretty great.

    Also, the game looks better than ever and also performs much better.

    I installed ATS last night and played about 10 hours straight through. Runs amazing and beautifully on my laptop. I'm glad it exists and that I have it on my computer. Not sure what else to think of it.

    But why are there no cyclists and joggers? Wouldn't the simulation be more realistic with cyclists and joggers? And deer?

    The game would quickly turn into GTA if they included cyclists and joggers.

    I've got my own nice truck now, and I just bought the basic garage (3 slots). What's my best next move?

    ETS 2 is best MP3 player I've ever had (maybe second to Audiosurf). I can't count how many albums I've listen to while virtually doing things for which ppl in real life get serious money. Fun times:cool:

    I think my employees are skimming off the top... Something ain't right.

    One of these days I'll turn into De Niro with a phone cord.

    I previously didn't got into the series because truck driving seemed tedious to me but something has changed.

    I finally began to enjoy just sitting in a truck and experience the sensation of travelling.

    ETS has become a great piece of software without doubt. Perhaps the best made of all the work sims right now, and it's also one of the best massive sandbox games out there. Much bigger than GTAV and more realistic.

    It's less GTA and more a successor to Outrun.

    Wish there was more you could do with money for it to be an actual sandbox.

    Different genres, I know.

    I just mentioned GTA V to compare how they simulate driving on motorways / cities. I spent endless hours in GTA V just driving around.
    Especially the American Truck simulator it is very similar to Los Santos and both have strenghts and weaknesses. In GTA you can pick up endless interactions between pedestrians and do all kinds of mindless shit, whereas ETS feels realistic and 100 times larger, and of course the metagame makes actual sense to an adult.

    They teased FMOD in an update.

    Unfortunately this is a bitch to mod, otherwise good sound is extremely important.

    I now own almost all DLCs, this game is really addictive.

    Still looking for ways to make it a bit harder though.

    I might be even more german than I thought, but I'm enjoying this from time to time. It's strangely relaxing.
    Sales are frequent enough to justify buying an expansion every now and then.

    My biggest issue is the braindead AI. It can't into traffic rules and the player seems to be charged for accidents by default.
    Unless I actually am guilty of causing it, ironically.

    Oof, haven't played in a month or so; the last update seems to have introduced graded fines for speeding now, I was going +38kmph over the speed limit and got stung for €2,300.

    Edit: Just reported another +38kmph over the limit and then got done for €4,200. Dunno if I slid onto a sideroad where the upper limit changed, or if my game is bugged.

    To its credit, this new fine update has actually got me obeying the speed limit laws and turned me into a responsible/Kraut player. :salute:

    (Only took them 8 years :shittydog:)

    i finally gave it a serious try. the hud desperately needs a more visible cruise control icon, there's not enough traffic, other cars' night lights are too weak, the night sky starts to brighten at 2:45 am, the wide load rear escort refuses to go back to let me make some emergency manouver and as soon as i touch it BAM game over, the radio bugs often, to feel some italian vibes i had to drive in france. all this with promods which is supposed to be the bestesterest experience ever.

    and i get this is a videogame, but damn, i can't believe a truck driver can earn 10000 euros in a single day of work so easily.
