Dear all,
I am a constant player of Euro Truck Simulator 2, then one day I thought I could try also a car simulator, so I decided to give a try to this game. On that time I hated it and did not touch it for about 6 months because:
- not having vsync makes my GPU running at 100% just for having maximum fps (which on game pauses was raising to 2.000 fps :sick: )
- FFB comparing with ETS2 was horrible (I have a logitech g27). you may say that driving a truck is different. well partially true, a truck has more resistance in the steering wheel and stronger centering at normal speed. at faster speed, forces are changing and resistance of the steering wheel increases at car as well ;)
- I had the feeling that the career mode is quite silly, and really difficult for somebody not yet used with the (poor) control of the cars. then some rules were also silly like using indicators when entering in a roundabout (when should be only when exit the roundabout) :silly:
- there were only a few cars to choose from, and a few more blocked.
- maps where we are supposed to drive are very limited in number of km from what I have seen, comparing with the vast area in ETS2 :whistle:

Then recently I discovered that there is a Steam version and I exchanged my serial to have access to automatic updates of the game and some mods. I discovered later a whole community of people just as for ETS2, so I decided to give a second chance to this game, also because I have paid good money for it.

Some bad things are still persisting in the latest version 1.5.4:
- still no Vsync, as a temporary solution I applied forced Vsync in the GPU (GTX 960) for this game and seems to work, but I have read about some possible crashes
- I tried hard to improve the control of the cars, and managed to increase the manoeuvrability by raising the linearity in game settings (to a value about 30-40%); still the FFB is not as I expected even with 150% in the Logitech profiler.
In fact the original FFB (without Logitech profiler) has the following issues: at departure FFB is too strong, I barely can turn the steering wheel, then the FFB become almost inexistent at normal speed (20-70 km/h) with almost no resistance for a range of about 30 degrees left/right (I use 0% deadzone). Then at high speed there is some resistance but centering is much lower than it should. With Logitech profiler the resistance at normal speed is very little improved, but 150% is too much for departure and low speed, so I was even considering driving without the profiler :P
- as for cars engines, reaching 100 km/h from the 1st gear should never happen, and sound of the engines is simply annoying. I look forward to test some modded cars soon but I do not have much expectations for engine improvements
- physics of cars needs serious improvements, on clean roads left side of the car is swinging like a boat with no FFB in the steering wheel. On grass and gravel car jumps sometimes like a kangaroo :lol:

However I had also a few pleasant surprises:
- Possibility to choose daytime, seasons, weather
- Different settings for traffic density and behaviour
- I had the “chance” to kill a pedestrian and he even screamed! After a few more seconds he vanished to death :blink:
- accidents are quite realistic

My main question related to the game would be: Are there some settings to improve driving at normal speed and getting more resistance in steering wheel?
Currently I use:
Overall effects strength: 125%
Spring effect strength: 40%
Damper effect strength: 60%
Centering spring disabled and 0%
Degrees of rotation: 900
Use special game settings checked (to allow the centering)
Allow game to adjust settings unchecked (to not overwriting the overall strength and the 900 degrees rotation)
in game feedback at about 80%

Other questions:
- a modded car created for 1.5.x will run in newer versions of the game like 1.5.y ?
- are there any traffic mods that will bring a larger variety of cars in traffic?
- is the career mode getting better later when advancing?
- are some locked maps in the game? From what I have seen there aren’t many km to drive

I thank you a lot for the patience of reading my looong post and I look forward to meeting some of you and also to receive some feedback.
Cheers!

1. Yes, mods from 1.5 will work on 1.5.1/1.5.2/1.5.3/1.5.4 and we are able to update them so, in the future its still possible to drive a "old" mod
2. No
3. Not sure what you mean
4. Not yet, but we have 2 diffrent city's now the old one and the new one and you can choose a area to start in.
Current cars that I drive in real life:
- Ford Transit Connect L2H2 2012
- Ford Transit L3H2 2014
- Opel Agila 1.2 2011
- Skoda Octavia Combi 1.4 Tsi 2016

@kas1.4truckdriver: thank you for your partial explanations, the career mode is very frustrating because mistakes in traffic occur usually because of the bad FFB in the steering wheel, it is very difficult to keep your lane without resistance in the steering wheel! :blink:
my question was meant to be if later there is be more in the career than short missions to pass only by respecting rules
and the main question was related to the logitech profiler settings...

for example how you performed on speed, clutch control general driving..

Thanks in Advance

Hi guys, are you planning to implement UK driving laws? They would be really useful for learning to drive (planning to do lessons soon )

Hello,

I am new to the game, so I was just wondering how do you setup the automatic transmission for cars using Logitech G27? This is very confusing for me, because I can’t find the Drive transmission in the settings menu. I also know that the Logitech G27 shifter uses manual only. Since I looked up an automatic game shifter on the internet and there ended up being none, how do people use the automatic setting in the game?

Gear 6 on your G27 is drive in automatic.

Are you holding the brake?

Is this with a wheel or keyboard?
