    Yeah I'll pass on that one (though it did look cool). I'm actually going to start looking at the mods because I'm starting to lose my sense of purpose for lots of sims I run. I like to have fun, but I seem to grow bored quite easily. Even Medieval Dynasty along with train sims just lacks the purpose I'm seeking.

    As for ATS, did get the special transport with the bundle for Texas and I stayed awake watching Emmett run it last night (pretty cool feature). Perhaps you may be able to recommend some mods that may help to assist in purpose/survival of a trucker to make it challenging. It seems like be it Medieval Dynasty, ATS, and many sims once you get past a certain threshold you could walk drive around the map and you would never run out of money.

    I know real economy mod will probably help. Something that has LTL (less than truckload) where you deliver multiple places from a depot. Some kind of thing where you actually have to stop to eat would be nice. Vehicles that require maintance on their trucks other than damage caused by running into things.

    Anyways I'm going to look around this morning.

    Thanks

    Yeah I started from scratch with the real economy mod and real gas prices. There are a few of them out there but this one seems interesting thus far. I may have to figure out how to mod these things myself (as I have no idea). If it's just mucking around with text files I have some ideas.

    Fueling up really takes away at the bottom line, but so does running in the back of a car. Was able to get my first very basic truck. Paying a daily loan of $600/day while now with a vehicle I'm making on average $3 mile. That brings in about 2 to 3 times the loan cost not counting fuel and damage.

    A little more purpose instead of just having everything available to you. Might try switching it out to another more updated mod that deals with the actual current day economy, supply chain shortages.

    Thanks

    The game looks good if judging by the pictures. I am interested in the question, if you get in an emergency, you can see the mechanical damage on the car?

    No, there's no visible damage modelling -- not on the trucks or anything in the environment.

    Re-installed ATS, not played it since at least early Dec 2022. Found a beautiful Pete 350 on Steam Workshop.

    Mexico - Santa Fe. Why would a sign say "engine brake use prohibited" ?

    Mike,
    A lot of small towns in the United States have restricted this for noise complaints. The town I live in has it posted, but some trucks still do it regardless. Some trucks aren't so bad, others are worse and obnoxious, but can't really say much against them compared to the military planes that are usually in and out of the airport at night. (C17 Globemasters and F35's in particular.)

    Hi Shawn thanks for the info, much appreciated buddy. I only asked because i had never seen the signs in ATS before.

    Nothing worse than aircraft noise. When i lived up in England, we were right under one of the main outgoing. Flight paths from Heathrow (London) airport, Concorde was the worse.

    Thanks again.
