    I'm a big fan of racing simulators, playing Assetto Corsa mostly, but played many other games. What is the appeal of this game? I understand what it's mostly about, but interested to know generally what people enjoy about playing this game and what the multiplayer is all about. Thank you

    Don't really care about MP, used to play sp while ago and mostly it is relaxing ... Surprisingly just driving through the country within speed limits with some virtual purpose , listening to the music, thinking is more fun that you would expect..

    On top of @ouvert's points I'd add the satisfaction from a narrow manoeuvring (Trameri entrance gate - I'm talking about you here!), nicely completed reverse parking and generally anything you wouldn't think such massive vehicle can do under your control. It is very satisfying. The vanilla map is not very challenging, but you can tweak the difficulty level with variety of mods or use different maps.

  4. I play single player, base game with the DLCs. I love grabbing a cup of coffee, turning on a good podcast, and then just driving basically - doing a delivery. Normally i'll fire up ETS2 after playing R3E for a bit in the evenings. It's just very relaxing. I also enjoy watching the scenery in triple monitors, still has not gotten old for me, especially with the day/night cycle. I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys gaming but not super fast paced destruction all the time.
     
  5. Tried the demo yesterday & went on to buy the game. As I will soon be training to become a HGV driver to earn my living, this could be a real handy tool to get a feel for driving. The game itself is great, looks very nice on 4K & 50 + FPS. Top marks from me
     
  6. If you buy any DLC I recommend the Scandinavia one first, it has some very impressive scenery. It also uses a bit more resources as well...maybe 5-10 fps less in that area but worth it

    Google for TruckSim Map. It is free, and brings Africa etc into the game. An easy to use Mod. The biggest in the web. And the best ;) .
    Cheers

  8. Hey @Andrew is that trucksim mod currently working with all other DLC maps? Would like to add it back if so
     
  9. Cruising along through the night, listening to a Belgian reggae station, checking out the sunrise along the river and getting my load of potatoes delivered on time....suprisingly satisfiying. Great training for the kids too...my daughter loves it.

    I'm German living in Australia. For me it's kinda helping getting over homesickness ;)

    I drove everywhere by car and motorbike back in the days. Cant do that today anymore. So it's sort of a therapy. Listening to European radio stations, driving through Europe.

  11. I love to just drive and listen to creepypastas. Sometimes it can kill hours and give you the chills =D

    I love everything about this game and American Truck Simulator is out later tonight. I find it very relaxing just driving and delivering
