    Hey all, I would normally string this along a bit further but I'm in the middle of setting up a new pc (argh!). Will be out of pocket some the next couple of days. Open board please. <center>Ludington-Griswold</center><small>(C Townsend) Ludington-(Roger) Griswold Aircraft Co, CT.</small>1944 = 2pChwM; 125hp Menasco C-4.

    This one took to the skies about a year before WWII ended. It was a rework of a very common civil tourer.

    Thanks for the tips Jan; I loaned 400,000 from my bank and invested it in expanding my garage from one to three boxes, bought two Daf trucks and hired two drivers. After that I made a trip from Amsterdam to Geneva and from there to Erfurt, each worth about 24,000. I spend a bit of that on fixing up the truck and added a few small mods and a new paintjob: I still need to climb a few levels to get the option to buy a 500+ hp truck, but for now I still quite happy with my Magnum. :)

    Those are great looking trucks Jan: Love the first! :encouragement: I'm now saving up to expand my garage and hire another driver, but with one or two deliveries each day progress is somewhat slow. I'm still enjoying it though! Thanks for the links, I will have a look this weekend.

    I use my mouse for that, which is just to the right of my stick shifter. I mapped quite a few functions to that as well.

    On the highest difficulty/realism setting a clutch is required, though I haven't tried it yet. Most major European cities are just the outskirts with some industrial area, you never get to drive into a city. Most of the driving is done along the major highways, and driving times are nowhere near realistic. I can do a 300 mile trip in 45 minutes. Unlike flightsimming I think that's a good thing, as it still is a game; I already have a full-time job! There is traffic on the road, but none of the congestion that makes real trips a nuisance sometimes. When you are driving through a country you will see some of the landmarks, especially near the cities. I was pleasantly surprised to drive out of Amsterdam and find the road that cuts through Schiphol airport, looking just like the...

    Found this on sale at Steam last week, the Original game and the expansion pack together for 5,93 ($8.19) and I have to say it is not a bad game! Quite a different pace from all my race sims, but quite relaxing to drive around. The basic objective of the game is to make money and gain experience by hauling freight all over Europe, so you can buy your own truck and start your own trucking company. You can even hire other drivers if you want. I first started out driving for other companies to get some funds, get used to the driving and explore the world a bit. Inside a Volvo: My dream truck is the 730 hp version of this Scania:
