Arrow The Time Limits!

I don't know if any one else has noticed this, but even the deliverys where there is no "competition", they still don't give you enough time limit for you to even to be able to just drive casually, you still have to drive at 70+mph just to reach the bloody destination in time!
All of the competition deliverys are a load of bullshit aswell, I tried one yesterday, and all but one lorry started about halfway to the destination, and the one behind me about 2 minutes after we started came flying past me like I was standing still!
So what I reccomend is completing the game first (how it is meant to be played, driving fast and stupidly) so you get a shitload of money, and then once you have completed the game, just drive at your own pace, because then you will have a load of money from completing the game, so therefore you can compensate for the forfiet.
Also has anyone noticed that when you change the graphics settings, nothing looks different at all?

@Bubblesjs,

I don't seem to have a problem with this. I did a lot of loads doing 60-65mph (in non-competitive loads). The guys ahead of you (in competitive loads) are easy enough to catch up to. I haven't lost one yet. The ones that start off behind me, well.... I just don't worry about them. The ones ahead of me, I just assume they got their loads ahead of me on the loading dock. I guess I didn't pay the dock-master enough.

As for the graphic settings, I haven't noticed. I started at max, and never looked back.

PS:
I knew the Mods were going to change your thread to something more appropriate.

Well bubbles is right depending on the difficulty setting you put it on the more/less time you have, and playing on trucker i have 5 mins less of time than i would have on Novice

You have to keep in mind that this is a truck RACING game. It's the sequel to Hard Truck that was a racing game. It's not really a simulation that I would describe like 18 WoS, and others are. This is more arcade style in-spite of how it was advertised. However, if scenery is one of the things that you would like to do.... I suggest you make the Traffic low/medium, and play at Novice. This gives you good time to complete your loads with less traffic, and enjoy the scenery.

Sorry, but you're wrong. This is directly from the 1C game page (category MANAGEMENT!!):

Apart from being the most accurate and innovative truck driving simulation game ever produced [...]
IMO it had the potential to be a really good simulation! But with all these extremely low time limits and no need to maneuver in any place, it's just a silly arcade racing game. It's a real shame after 7+ years of development...

Too bad that there isn't a playable demo version so I had to throw money away just to find out. So it'll be the last game from 1C for me.

I'm not wrong. If you read my post correctly I stated "In-Spite of how it was advertised". I read the same ad as you did. Many would beg to differ about it being a simulation.

you don't have to drive like an idiot to complete the loads in time. the argrosy you start out with is more than fast enough to complete the loads on time and in first. on any difficulty weather it be rookie intermediate or pro I don't know what the actual setting names are but you get the idea. full throttle helps out a lot even though it eventually bogs down your motor is what I'm going to assume because my tractor isn't running 82 flat land anymore. Yes I ran 82 but I didn't "drive stupid". I wasn't cutting off cars right and left and driving on the shoulder or the wrong side of the road all the time. it's how you drive and knowing your routes and how to get there the fastest and well beating the hell out of your tractor. the game obviously isn't a "simulator" and seeing as how you're competeing against other drivers pulling the same load you're going to have to drive fast. you don't puss around and lolly gag around I mean when was the last time you seen an o/o running speed limit? speed limit on the interstate in my state is 75 I get passed some nights by drivers running 80-85 so when you look at it speed is actually pretty realistic. if you've got a problem with the time just bob tail around and play the game that way.

Bubblesjs just can't comprehend that this is a RACING GAME, like it's predecessor. Those that don't like this, should not have bought it in the first place. There are many factors involved in this game, but racing is the primary event/goal here.

Perhaps Bubbles is one of the people like me who saw the game in the Steam store and said "Hey, a trucking simulator! This looks pretty good!" and then finds out it's a racing game ONLY after paying twenty bucks. Simulation, my ass. 1C dropped the ball on advertising this big time.
