I like the looks. I find the steering response is slow. My friends and I do real off-roading so I can relate. I find that some of the vehicles are too slow and not realistic. I take down trees with my atv yet alone my jeep. Lol. The map view scrolls way too fast and setting waypoints is frustrating. We should be able to choose a suggested way or create a way. I know you guys put years into this however, it seems rushed. Allot of key things are missing. Graphics aren't as good as the hype. It's not fluent. When i go into a small lake with my jeep the wave moves the whole lake and not just the water immediately surrounding me. Maybe that's a hardware issue but thought I'd mention it. I don't really get the point of the game. I've opened up most of my map and unlocked all my trucks. I'm getting bored. I want to go back out in my jeep..lol.
Steering is to slow? Dont forget the how old the vehicles are and all the mud. (Not every car has hydraulic steeering or Servos.) I like the game this way.
The Game is a SandBox for Modding like Fallout but with less people working on it.
Ohh yeah the Camera ^^ is way to easy to control via mouse. But on a Center cam I agree. (but why rear view? parking? I would love me some mirrors and a lil bit more headmovement as driver.)
Just wait for the community to migrate some mods to this new version. I can tell you that when I first got the game, I spent weeks hauling logs around the maps, but after a short time, it became way too easy because I discovered all the good routes and roads to take. But once I got into the mods, especially some of the great maps people made, just offroading in some really well made vehicles on some unbelievably challenging maps become my sole playing style on this game. Once you try it, you won't go back
steering is slow, drive at top speed on tarmac, stay in the correct lane and do not hit any barriers, you'll have one hard time in the C,D,E and K class vehicles. they can easily get around the corner its just the steering is too slow for you to straighten up in time or change directions fast enough. a steering sensitivity adjuster stetting is what we need.
Recently purchased this game on PS4 and enjoying it, would it be possible to update the map features?
The scrolling is extremely quick/jerky making it difficult o place accurate nodes.
Can the selection cursor for placing nodes be made larger? A small white dot on a monochrome map is terrible.
First post here from a new console user on XBOX One. Hello everyone! This game is absolutely beautiful IMHO. Gaming's come a long way since Space Invaders in my local sports centre in 1978!! The physics, the attention to detail... I'm very impressed. I've been watching videos of real life Siberian trucking & logging on youtube. This game succeeds in capturing that... without the rain & snow... (yet? ). I've not had as much enjoyment from an off-road driving game since 1NSANE by Codemasters back in 2000/2001.
@ Hyena - try using the cab view when putting the hammer down on surfaced roads -I find that helps a lot.
@ Turrican - I know I'm on the XBOX, but have you tried zooming the map to get a more accurate placement?
What I don't like is the way that once a map is completed (all logs delivered) it doesn't remain unlocked. If you want to go back to the map you have to start over. It would be nice to have an option for just cruising around, single or multiplayer, just having fun putting vehicles in tricky rescue situations, chilling out at a lakeside etc.
Thanks for a great game.. so far.
More adverse weather would be fun - not just night & day. Also how about having maps where bridge repairs have to be carried out? The operation could be similar to loading lumber with the crane attachment: Drop several logs on to the correct area then active the "pack" function.
I think more camera angles would be nice. First person is alright but I'd love to have a hood view personally.
Also why'd they remove the top of the cab camera angle you used to be able to get in 3rd person. That camera angle was awesome and made it so easy to see where you was going. The devs actually downgraded the gaming experience by removing that.
Working mirrors for the cab view would be great as well.
