Re: Extreme Euro trucking videos

We don't have the tunnels like that but the twisty turny roads on the side of the hills reminds me of dragging logs out of the bush. Dirt tracks, steep hills, no room for error and the only thing between you and the truck coming up the track empty is the CB radio which you monitor constantly as you ...

Can you race them? :)

Re: Heavy Haulage Escort

Nice idea, they'd get sick of me passing them and arriving at the destination 3 days before them, but I like the idea :) Another one of those things where effort and changes would probably out weigh the useability of the rest of the game.

Re: Truckers code of conduct

I don't really care for "cop chases", but having some police in the game would be nice. DUI tests or something like that would be nice to have (quite regular here in Estonia, especially at Jaanipäev :lol:) I agree something more than just cash registers and a few bucks coming from your account but ...

That's one redeeming feature of ETS, no police chases :)

Re: Truckers code of conduct

right now I'm like "get out from my way" by blinking the lights :D Put a beacon on the roof of the truck and have it turned on all the time. Doesn't do anything to make driving easier but in my rule book it tells other drivers 'get out of the way I'm in a hurry and your piddly little buzz box means...

Re: Truckers code of conduct

They do the same down here with the addition that most overtaking trucks, on getting the headlight flash, then indicate left - right - left (or whatever maniac sequence they come up with) to say thanks. Yeah we've been doing it for years. Even in the ute if I'm not talking to the driver on the radi...

Re: phpBB woes

I'm not talking about style changes. Most of the time I don't care about it, unless there's obvious flaws like bad contrast etc. Besides it's easy to change CSS by any admin and user alike (I use Stylish browser extension for a number of sites). What I mean is real backend functionality (written in...

Re: phpBB woes

I always like to be informed of alternatives, don't need pros/cons as it's down to preferences anyway ;-) Platform is Linux/Apache running PHP and mySQL or PostgreSQL at the backend I prefer to research and judge on my own personal experience. If the product looks like it suits my needs, or the nee...

Re: phpBB woes

I also want other people to add anything else annoying with phpBB I've missed. phpBB has just as many flaws as any free software and it's all a case of what you get used to and are willing to put up with. Personally I don't agree that it's the best free forum software because like all software it n...
