  1. In my opinion, I don’t think that any changes to the road to sim are necessary. The 110 km/h speed limiter works well enough. Yes, there can be a lot of accidents in high traffic areas such as the Calais-Duisburg road, but that ultimately lies on someone’s manner of driving, not within the server’s settings.
  2. Hey @E.B._DST! I typically drive various lengths, either free-roam or taking jobs. As @WarSniperr above mentioned, I usually don't take jobs that take longer than an 1 hour and 30 minutes. I sometimes take jobs that take me longer than that whenever I'm bored and have a lot of time on my hands.
  3. Hello, @sixtytwelve! I typically choose lighter loads whenever I take a job. Given that I don't have the Special Transport DLC, I haven't seen a whole lot of heavy cargo for me to take.
  4. Hey @DylanLewisTMP! I usually drive either a Scania, Volvo, MAN or DAF in ETS2; I tend to stick to my Scania a lot
  5. Hey @ZabbeX, I typically use the recording software built into my GeForce Experience program.
  6. Ahh, made a rest stop in lovely Romania! (Apologies for the crappy quality; had to scale things down to be under the file size limit 🙁)

  7. The easiest thing to do, as @Dubbeledraaideur [NL] mentioned, is to avoid high traffic areas. If you do have to travel through the Calais-Duisburg road, stick to a slower speed (90 km/h is good) and be prepared to stop if something happens; that way you'll reduce the risk of being involved in a serious accident.

      Thank you! 🤗

  9. For me, driving right up to the speed limiter (110 km/h) is a pretty stupid idea, especially if you're in a congested area like the Calais-Duisburg road and/or if you're carrying a loaded trailer. I usually stick to 90 km/h (occasionally 100 km/h), because that'll give me some extra room in case I need to avoid something or stop. Driving at a slower speed helps manage corners easier and keeps the truck and trailer more stable too

  11. Hey @E.B._DST! Back roads are great to travel on, as I often consider them to be the ‘scenic route’ over the hustle and bustle of major highways; although I don’t mind which road I take just as long as it gets me to where I’m going
  12. Hey @sgtharley5050! My least favourite truck would have to be Iveco. I'm not a huge fan of the interiors nor do they have the most powerful engine options.
  13. Well, it looks like a lot of you use ProMods, which is interesting! I unfortunately don't have ProMods as the only map DLC I'm missing is Vive la France. In response to @sgtharley5050's post above; that is probably the longest non-ProMods journey I have ever heard, well done! I should try that myself and see how that goes
  14. Thank you all for your inputs so far! I would have to agree with @Justice Man’s post above, long trips do get boring for me after a little while, but I like listening to TruckersFM to help make the trip a little more fruitful.
