  1. [SCS Blog] Revisiting Germany

    Admins not having to constantly monitor a single stretch of road is good for MP though. As for people missing it, that's just a matter of unlearning habitual behaviour. Low end PCs will indeed have trouble running it when upgraded, however we're talking very low end PCs here. A 1050 card can currently run Italy DLC on Ultra settings (with MLAA off and 300% scaling) at about 45 FPS so I think it's justified.
  2. So I've been trying out CD road for the past few days to understand its appeal and managed to get my first kick :D Time to get out of Dodge before it gets me my first ban :)

      The less players there, the better. Try Linz-Dresden. Awesome road!

      Yeah I normally avoid CD anyway and with good reason.

       

      I will try your suggestion btw.

  3. [SCS Blog] Revisiting Germany

    This is just awesome and why SCS is my favorite developer. I mean from a business perspective SCS doesn't have to do this IMO. ETS2 would keep on selling anyway and with ProMods or TDM one ccould upgrade the core map anyway.
  4. What Re-shader to use?

    @Rev. Yeah ReShade was a terrible experience for me as well. @PM90I just use SweetFX. This one is my favorite example video
  5. What do you hear in this video?

    I hear yanny, but if I focus my mind on hearing laurel I can hear laurel
  6. When it comes to ETS2/ATS, DLC's are an immediate buy for me. So yes.
  7. What game is better?

    IMO vanilla ATS is better than vanilla ETS2, despite the fact ETS2 having more trucks and map content. It's a quality over quantity thing. When you take DLC's and mods into account, however, ETS2 is the better game. ATS is catching up though.
  8. It was already a well traveled road at the time Europoort was the most popular place. Europoort however often got so crowded that admins occasionally roadblocked it and told everyone to go to the UK via Calais instead. This caused a large increase in traffic on the CD road which resulted in CD road being shown a lot more in "idiots on the road" videos which in turn made the CD road more popular etc. etc.
  9. Do you have good language skills?

    We are the ones that use the Latin alphabet actually. Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet and I can tell you learning it will make you feel like you're dyslectic at first. Unfortunately it's also the easiest part of learning Russian, it's the grammar that will drive you nuts. Anyway back on topic, my language skill levels are as follows: Dutch -> Native English -> Near Native Norwegian (Bokmål) -> Fluent German -> Good French, Spanish, Russian -> Basic

  11. What song are you currently listening to?

      Seriously, SCS should consider expanding Scandinavia up to Trondelag (maybe parts of Nordland) and Vasterbotten in Norway and Sweden some point in the future, and this road is just so beautiful, love that! There are so many beautiful fjords and Lapplandic forestry further up north in the country to explore, so I feel it's worth that expansion. 

  13. What do you use to record gameplay?

    NVIDIA Shadowplay and OBS are both free and demand very little from your PC The interface of Shadowplay wouldn't work on my PC, but if it works for you, go with Shadowplay for ease of use.
