Tips and Tricks in Playing Euro Truck Simulator 2

One of the few online games that got hooked up so many players online is Euro Truck Simulator 2 herunterladen.

 Basically, Euro Truck is a truck delivery service or job. You will be tasked to deliver orders and that will then equivalent to certain money and achievements. However, to be really effective in playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 herunterladen, you need to first know a few tips to get the most of the games. And today’s blog will be of help!

Tips in Playing

 Yes, it is not easy to play and master the game. But no one said it should be hard to learn. Here are a few tips you should know in playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 herunterladen.

 1: Control tuning.

Set your triggers to acceleration and braking. Don’t know why this isn’t the default setting. Set your right stick to look.

Increase your up/down look deadzone significantly. This allows you to slap your look stick left and right to scan intersections quickly without accidentally ending up staring at the floor or roof of your cab.

Increase your steering sensitivity. Matter of taste, but the default steering is just too slow for cornering at speed. If you find yourself braking mid turn to wait for your steering to catch up, this is a must.

2: Efficiency.

Set your cruise tolerance to zero, turn on auto retarder. You can safely travel up to 9 kph over the posted speed limit without getting cited. So, it would be best to set your cruise to 6 or 7 over the limit and travel at max efficiency without risking tickets.

However, you must also watch the speed limit signs though, especially in areas where speed cameras are common.

another thing is sleep efficiency too. There is no such thing as a partial rest. Every time you rest it’s going to burn *9* hours (corrected), even if you’re not that tired yet. Start looking for a place to park after the first yawn, no sooner. You’ll be fine. Don’t bother sleeping between jobs unless the job selection where you’re at 5 hearts rate or your rest meter is nearly pegged. Most jobs will allot you enough time to sleep once, especially after you put a few points in long distance. For the really long jobs you’ll have time to sleep 2 or 3 times and have time to spare. As of now you don’t get a bonus for delivering cargo early, so sleep on the clock.

Try not to fuel in the UK. It’s way more expensive than on the mainland. Fuel before you cross the channel.

Never travel empty, or “bobtail.” When you go to job selection, click on the dot on the map for the city you’re in. This will list ONLY jobs originating in that city. If there are no high paying jobs, just grab a short distance job to a nearby city and try again there. And remember, $ per km is what you’re after, don’t just grab the highest total payout.

3: Your rig

The cheapest Iveco truck is to get a Volvo or one of the other trucks that starts with good baseline HP. Trust me, it’s worth saving up the little bit of extra money when you’re not crawling up hills, or driving in the cities. Once you get the later engine upgrades it’s incredibly satisfying passing the trucks that are struggling up hills.

Necessary upgrades. Engines. Transmissions with retarder for the cruise tip above. Allison 6 speed trannies are garbage, don’t waste your time. That’s it.

  • Helpful upgrade 1. Put a light bar on the roof with a couple aux lights, but bear in mind they only work when your high beams are on. You’ll have to open the light menu (default F4) and check the blocks for aux lights to enable them.
  • Helpful upgrade 2. Get side skirts and a bull bar. These will dramatically reduce your damage when you inevitably cut a corner too sharp, get sideswiped in a turning circle, whatever. They pay for themselves quickly.

4: The biz.

Unless you’ve played before, wherever you select for your home garage, chances are you’re going to hate it. Don’t bother upgrading it. By the time you can afford your first garage, you’re going to want to move. Luxembourg is a great first location. Low fuel prices and lots of close-by cities to trade with.

Buy a garage in a good hub city and move there. (There are tutorials on how to do this, but hint, you have to move the Euro Truck Simulator first, then yourself) Once you’ve moved, sell your starting garage. Buy your second (and third, if you can afford it) trucks and put them there. Buy the Ivecos for your fleet trucks, at least at first. There is no benefit to buying better trucks for your hired drivers. None. It makes no difference at all. Tip here, if money is super tight you can change the paint job to a cheaper color to save about $500 per truck. Strip off optional accessories like the sun shield and front mirror to save even more valuable cash.
