    I'm now at Level 9. I just acquired a new chartreuse 45' trailer with bulkhead custom painted to match the Kenworth tractor. My garage is in Sacramento. This is my first load on my new trailer at Barstow. A classic rig with hot paint! I'm now able to back while inside the cab. How many chartreuse tractor-trailers have you seen lately? Pretty sharp?

    Here is my virtual load of iron pipe in SoCal (you wouldn't believe how I got the truck backed inside that tiny yard, no way to back into the parking space pulling the truck forward through the gate, hint: truck had to be backed in through the gate from the street while car horns were blasting, I certainly had to bother the customer for a ground guide or two):

    Lots of light/bright green trucks on the road. See them fairly often. Really nothing special about the color anymore.

    As for "is it sharp?" If it were real, I'd have an opinion on it. But it's a friggin video game that probably only has 3 or 4 real truck drivers playing it. And the 99.9% of kids playing it probably have bright green "Monster" trucks. Why not find the forum they use and ask them?

    While I like your enthusiasm for the career, there are probably other forums better suited for your hobby than this one.

    Virtual tarping is the best.

    Not advanced enough in game yet to purchase a sleeper. The game maps are only in California, Nevada and Arizona. My region of operation. I am a virtual O/O anyway. Most trips between shipper and receiver are no longer than 5 hours and there are plenty of motels on game map. In this game there is no virtual log book!

    I posted this under flatbed originally and the mods moved it here because a PC simulator is technically "software".

    Loading and unloading is as simple as pressing ENTER!
    Takes less than 20 seconds!

    The toughest part in the game still is backing the
    trailer or maneuvering in tight spots with stuff in the way.

    I don't know yet if the game does tarps.
     
    Coffey Thanks this.

    I know a good virtual broker that has open deck freight running from Candyland to Monopoly town. No tarp, 24/7 receiver. You'll need imaginary dunnage and edge protectors.

    Let me know if you're interested.
