[ARCHIVED] Your survival guide to parking


Recommended Posts

Hello! Welcome to the survival guide to parking!


 


*Any and all information can and will be updated to be correct.


 


Welcome to my guide and tips on parking in ATS. I recently found that its rather difficult parking in tight spaces based on a few things. To get started I'm going to share the (what I think) is the most useful knowledge for the game in the parking world.


 


Tip #1:


 


When ever you can use a shorter framed truck! Shorter frames make you smaller and easier to maneuver in these tight spaces. Don't get me wrong the longer frame can be used to park in these small areas but the smaller frame will help until you get the practice!

Tip #2:


 


Less trailer axles the better! The less axles (set of tires each on the left and right side) make it so the trailer can maneuver better due to the fact is only is on fewer axles. Again don't get me wrong if you want a higher challenge you can take more axle trailers!


 


(Images will be added once I find another job for it)


 


To-do:


 


* Tutorials for parking in specific places.


* Images for trailers.


* Add community tips and tricks.

Very good advice. I'm not sure if this applies to Semi's, but when my dad had his lawn business, he used to have to tow the lawn trailer around. He had told me that longer trailers are easier to park. I'm not sure if it applies with Semi Trucks, but it was something he had told me when he had the trailer.

In theory, yes, longer trailers are actually easier to park in many opinions. Longer trailers allow more precise corrections and maneuvers to position. You can also turn the wheel to the extreme ends and the trailer won't take off on you. I have a bear of a time parking shorter trailers. Their movement is too extreme, precise corrections lead to trailers going off every which way.

I've definitely had to try 2-3 times sometimes parking shorter trailers. The longer ones I can usually get in one go.

You'll find me mostly on ATSMP. Look for Jguy in the shiny iridescent purple truck!

Hello @MrDaGree

 

Please would you be able to finish or add to this guide as at the moment it does not provide information that requires a guide, and has been waiting over 4 years for an update.

 

Otherwise, I may have to archive it.
