I think it will fill the big gap on games market, there is not much of such simulations It will be bit like LFS mixed with GTA

That was really nice one I always liked size of GTA SA map but driving mode is really annoying sometimes, even Mafia is better than that

I'm woundering what crash model will be like in Carrier (Transporter?)

i've tried Euro Truck Simulator

first day impression i like it...
second day i found some minor regards but nothing that serious...
map isn't detailed as 18WoH, there are few larger cities... then there isn't UK, Denmark, no Sweden, Norway, Slovenia, Croatia, and all other eastern countries except Poland...
graphic is awesome... i run it at 1680x1050 and without problems...
gameplay is pretty balanced and IMO realistic for one truck simulation... shame i don't have steering wheel cause this would be an awesome ride
there are lots of varieties of trucks but at beginning there isn't much money for shopping so i started with some below average truck...

i made some screenshots from my game to show you

Praha (anyone recognizes the building?)


one pic straight forward, nice and detailed driving board...


mouse moves view almost 180 degrees left to right, i'm alone in cabin ...


7 or 8 cameras are here to show every corner of surroundings... here's one view showing front side of my truck...


not sure if it worth buying, maybe just for hard core truck fans...
others can find game pretty boring and long lasting (PM me for free game)
i'm somewhere in between so i'll keep on playing till i explore everything ingame...

yep... you see a little map on right top corner... every city looks like a exit from highway with two three streets and few traffic lights...
actually game concept isn't based at city transport but at interstate driving and game does offer joy to fans of trucks and highways

I hope this game will be modded like 18 WOS Haulin, where some polish enthusiasts made a polish map for it, current version 0.7 covers whole country and some foreign areas like Prague or Berlin

a few more pictures from Euro Truck:

a map of highways available ingame... doesn't look much but it isn't too little as well... driving from Roma to Warszaw takes over 20 minutes in real time...


i witnessed an accident few days ago...


Vienna's Riesenrad


some advertisement in Praha, don't know what it says...

I have bought 'Crash Time', game based on 'Alarm fur Cobra 11' TV series. It's nice game but still bit too arcade You drive 160-180 km/h in your Mercedes coupe and yoiu have difficulties to catch a van which runs away

I guess it wouldn't be fun if it would take 20 hours or so. Graphics look good! I've thought about buying such a game but I'm afraid that my computer won't be able to handle it

The graphics of the track simulator are very poor. Racedrivergrid has very good graphics but it has only racing tracks.

Maybe, but how can you get from Rome to Warsaw in just 20 min, when your speed is normal? How does that work out, where do you actually drive? I also don't like those signs by Rome. Why are there Vienna and Munich on them, when in reality they aren't? It should be like in real world, or if you can't make it exactly like that, at least don't write cities you know aren't on signs; or is that one of the peculiarities of the game, and you can't really drive to Florence, but only to Vienna and Munich; I don't know how else you could be from Rome to Warsaw in just 20 min.
