Little confused about the road's over there in Europe...
How accurate are the roads in this game to real life? Do you guys really only have 2 (at max 3) roads going everywhere? Here in California we have 6-8 lanes at any given point. Also, the speed limit road signs, those are in kph correct? So all the other road cars are speeding?

Loving the game so far. Its a dream of mine to drive all over the world. Its great to see different parts of the world. Can't wait for US Truck.

Also... in real life, where would you said the rain bar should be at in the options menu? Left, Middle or Right?

The number of lanes is ofc dependant on the amount of traffic..
If you are driving in England the speedsigns are in mph. 60mph=100kph, roughly

313 million people in the United States.
81 million people in Germany.
Of course you need more lanes, especially since you have 3 trucks in every garage over there. Hehehe. :-p

The signs in Europe (minus England) is in KPH.
The signs in England is MPH.

The signs show speed limit for CARS, not trucks.
Truck speed limit, in the game, is 80 kph / 50 mph, roughly. (And in real life, trucks are limited to 90 kph, by EU law)

Love the game but i think its too simple. I mean its mainly open freeways and stuff, not enough driving trough towns, dangerous mountain passes, cities as well to make it a bit more challenging and diverse.

Just feel sometimes like, ok pick up, get on the freeway, cruise control, unload..... repeat.

Pick Garage in Italy or Switzerland, do not develop Long Distance skill, and use narrow roads wherever possible (Poland have plenty, in "Going East"). Quite challenging. ;)

This mod adds traffic to the otherwise boring open roads. There are three flavors of traffic. I recommend the heaviest one which still is not near terrifying as I read it was.

That should depend on the time of the year and where in Europe you are......like in the US where it should rain/snow/tornado in some areas more, than in others.

The roads in Poland are good. There is a good training road south of Krakow, PO that will test your skills and another one north of Torino, Italy. You have to have Going East! for the Krakow run. If you look at the map, you'll see all of the 2 lane roads. They get real curvy! Check your steering slider and make sure you have control!

:( Wish the game had multi-player. Would be awesome to know that all other rigs I see on the road were actual people. You guys sound fun to play with

One other question. The first drivers that I chose to work for me have very low ratings. Do they improve over time? As in, the more they drive for me, the better they get?

yes, they get xp and skill points just like you. You can leave their skill trees on "balanced" which will let the computer skill them up for you, or you can select their skills manually yourself as they level up.
