    Interesting if this game is able to compete. As a start, it looks like an ambitious ETS2-clone. Not a bad thing -- competition can actually help SCS. They put trucksims on the map. This validates what they're doing, makes it easier to point to and say "This is a successful genre and why we need funding for more development efforts to compete." A lot of the wishlist for ETS2 features is limited simply by available resources. An excuse to expand those resources is a benefit to SCS and an the players. Kind of like P3d vs X-Plane (and now the new MSFS) -- Competition and alternatives have been good for everybody.

    I wouldn't be too optimistic Eric. I watched a few YT game play videos earlier and the graphics for a new release look quite poor.

    Also a lot of negative reviews on Steam, that i read after posting about the game here.

    Poor physics and such like.

    It's alpha / early beta still; all that's to be expected. Plus it's largely an ets2-clone. But if they can pull off wishlist items like rigids and BDFs, and walkarounds outside the truck, they'll offer some competition for SCS which will in turn drive them to close the gap, so in the end it's all good.

    No it's not. This is the initial v1 release as of yesterday.
    However, most of the comments relate to the EA.

    I might try this simply because it has rigid-chassis models available.

    Agree competition is good buddy. But at the moment i don't think it will give anyone at SCS sleepless nights.

    I was looking at the movies and screens for it. I like the paperwork/waybill aspect of it. Sort of gives you a physical tie to the load. As for the external walk-around, I think SCS will take these two items and expand on them eventually.

    Bought, played for 32 minutes and then removed and a refund request granted.

    Rubbish and should never have been released as-is from Early Access. Aerosoft should be ashamed of having their name associated with this game.

    At least you got your money back Bruce, which is a good thing.
