Continued my trucking business so I could obtain more funds to hire more drivers and buy more trucks. Went a nice long distance around a short area as well, even visiting a fellow figure.fm'er's home town.

- Travels: Amsterdam to Rotterdam (Free-roam) -> Koln -> Kessel -> Newcastle-Upon-Tyne -> Hamburg -> Rotterdam.

(I managed to drive on the opposite side of the road in Great Britain to only end up screwing the entry way on a highway. I had to get down to the highway and turn onto the proper lane. Glad the traffic was light.)

Now waiting to actually hire and tend to my truck. I need enough funds to actually handle the loans and similar. I'm also trying to find workloads taking me back to Bratislava.

Stupid game has a "one more job" effect on me similar to Civilization's "one more turn"...

-----

My travels for the day: Rotterdam -> Strasbourg -> Duisburg -> Nurnberg -> Wien/Vienna (Free-roam to) - Bratislava -> Kosice.

Wanted to make my way from Rotterdam to Bratislava so I could improve my business by taking the long-hauls. Took a few that took me up and around places, even accidentally smashing into a France-German border (I'm assuming) thanks to the Acetylene I was carrying from Duisburg to Numberg. Got too riled up by it because I took the corner swiftly and panicked to not take an image.

I hired Laco and Jenevive when I arrived at Vienna. I gave both a starter 'Majestic Across' to start their journey. Now I need to pay off a loan that I used to pay the truck and them. If they do horrible then I'll fire them and get new drivers later. I'm doing the brunt of the work anyways.

(Traffic is backing up like crazy. Can't wait for the 1.9 update.)

(These turns is what caught me on the border. I got fined by crashnig into the car behind me when backing up.)

(Train appeared stalled out so I chanced it to cross to a fuel station. I then saw a massive line-up.)

(My lovely new HQ upgraded by one in Bratislava. It can now house three truckers.)

ets2_00338 by SubTrance, on Flickr
(A roadway leading up and downhill from Bratislava to Kosice was insane. Up at 40 km and down while braking many times. Stupid lag caused me to damage my truck and 1% on the cargo. Lag always causes me to screw up with me blaming steam overlay.)

Laco and Jenevive now work for the "WhiteFox" company with their own custom winter themed Majesty trucks. They're now making profit between 1,000-5,000 Euros. I'm hoping I'll see a growth in profit once I stay on the road long enough for them to do their thing. I can always fire them when they do stupid things.

- AI Overhaul/Improvements:

AI is getting a nice over-haul for the 1.9 update. It now interacts with other AI, indicator lights on your truck, and clears itself out appropriately. It now knows what to do.

This session actually pissed me of thanks to the AI. I got into three accidents because of the stupid AI in the Poland area. One was a white car that got too close to my trailer, second being a black van coming from a "T" intersection, and a green car cutting me of on the highway and stopping. The trips themselves went smoothly, just not the AI crashing into my truck or cutting me off. Also, it finally rained on my trip from Bialystok to Dresden just as I got to the border. I'm also going to joke that I transported "Zlatzy Bazant" (beer) from Kosice to Bialystok. Also their version of Cola which is awesome.

(This bastard turned into my lane, cutting me off and slowing me down. I couldn't stop in time so I ended up hitting that bastard in the green car. I heard about three or more cash register sound effect that it told me it was a major damage and I GOT FINED FOR IT! @#$ YOU! :headboom: )

(Apparently Europe went through some form of drought. It started raining two weeks later or so.)

I'm hoping the next session will be on a lighter note. I want the 1.9 update because I don't want to experience that stupidity......
