This is a awesome game I have 314 (yes you read that right, 314) hours in this game and love it! This link will take you to the page where you can get it. I isn't very realistic (driving is, but economy and stuff isn't), like for instance you get to choose your job, you can take a job from any company, the game is on a 1:25 scale, you get payed about $1.25 per mile, etc.

But the overall driving of it is great! You can drive automatic or manual, keyboard or controller (or if you have one of those 300 dollar gaming wheels, that works too), you can use the jake brake, turn brights on/off, buy your own truck. Currently there are 4 trucks in the game (Peterbilt 579, Peterbilt 389, Kenworth W900, and Kenworth T800), but more are coming soon (the devs are having licensing issues).

Both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator are great and I would probably have as many hours too but I like being married too much! smile.gif

I'm thankful that they added in the time and effect of the landing gear crank being activated during pickup and drop off of a trailer, but I do wish it allowed you to climb out of the truck and walk around it to do your GOAL and activate the landing gear crank. It would be nice to go back and open your doors and actually bump a dock too!

Scenery is really nice in both and sunsets!

Love both of those; I have over 100+ hours on ETS2 (Prefer the European roads etc, used to live there for 16 years)

Just saw that they are starting to integrate ATS into some of the actual Simulators; Sigma Integrale's video below shows what's being done; pretty cool.
