    Yes yes yes yes yes! More news about the trucking simulators! Thank you dear Joey D!

    It's great that they finally added the VNL, but it's clearly visible that the model is a bit old. If you look at the Next Generation Scania S and R, those are extremely high quality, causing lag even on the most powerful PCs.

    I think I'll slap a Swift paintjob on it and I'll just enjoy it!

    Anyway, there is a 2018 Volvo VNL mod too, and it's great!

    If people keeping reading it, I'll keep writing it. We're always looking to expand coverage of all things sim and driving. Plus I have a quirky taste in games, so that helps.

    My father used to be a trucker (he mained a Kenworth T600) and he drove a VNL a few times. I asked him what his thoughts were and he said that they feel really cheap and that other truckers call them "disposable". I've driven the VNL quite a few times in ATS and I've come to like it more and more as I drive it. I've never been too keen on the appearance of the last gen model however the new gen looks pretty good in my opinion.

    I am a truck driver.

    I bought this on steam back in March, played an hour and was a bit apprehensive as who in their right mind would drive a rig all day at work, then come home and simulate what you just did all day?

    Apparently me, I've started back with it this past weekend and it's addicting, relaxing, and honestly just a welcome change from trying to shave lap times down.

    I love it.

    I hop in and out from this game. I look at the Volvo dealer in San Francisco and saw that I need to be at least Level 10. And I'm at 5...

    Good thing I have an extra XP and cash mod to help. Plus, I have the Coast 2 Coast map mod, so super extra XP and cash :)

    Any wheel ffb setting suggestions? What wheel rotation is best? 900 or 1080?
