the sad thing is the persons that wanted multiplayer saves are mostly(!) the filthy casuals that play the game for 10 or 20 hours, get bored and leave the game. they are not dedicated enough or skilled enough cause they lack the hours in game to complete even a lousy stock map in one session.
i am short before posting a negative review on steam cause this feels, by now, like a console cash grab to me. on top they open the box of worms that is cockpit view. the hood view in ST was fine, it worked to drive through thick forest where you did not see with the regular camera.
now the box is opened and worms come out, first cockpit view, now that is in but hey mirrors dont work, now we want mirrors. next they want high quality dashboard, windshield whippers, maybe A/C next, Track IR support (lol!?) WTF where is this going? this is not ETS2.
the challenges are a waste of time, no fun, no point, no effort. it feels lazy but this one i can let slip as the community can do nice stuff with it, maybe.
water is overdone, it looks like its wrapped in plastic, the fog is terrible compared to spintires.
i play almost 1700 hours spintires, never asked for anything rly(yes i ask for removal of lock damage!), the game was great and still is, i am glad noone is working on it so it can no longer get ruined by stupid community whining.
but now we got this abomination. i have a positive review for spintires up, as there is nothing wrong with the game, but this one, as said i am short before putting a negative review up cause thats no longer funny. who cares about potential and development, if the thing sucks to begin with, all that is for naught. better have a 3 year old finished product that works instead of this "potential" everyone talks about.
the game has its good points, they are hard to find and you have to look for them but they are there. what they did with hardcore mode is kinda nice, it works out fine on public games.
the block posts are goofy but they work.
before release i refused to join the negative train, they said its all the same and only a cash grab and a scam. i still dont think this is a scam but by now i believe this IS a cash grab. i mean look at it.
in my view this went totally wrong, i will continue to watch this and see where this goes, but i dont think this will go anywhere interesting. the hype will die down, the most vocal group of casual whiners will leave to other games in few weeks till 2 month cause they dont get what they want right away, and the die hard fans probably go back to spintires as it is the superior product as it stands now.
i have a converted map ready for release, but screw that, i dont care anymore, you guys can make your own maps, i just delete the converted thing and leave it be.
man i had to get that off my system, better i dump it here and ppl think i am crazy than carrying that around with me.
a fine day to you gentleman.
