Default Remember you're in Britain

It's game related comment

Had several cities I could deliver goods in, While I was in Amsterdam.

I have never been in UK so I picked London.

Ferry to Calais

"Drive left"

That's easy I know they drive on the left side...Well until I came to the first traffic light and had to turn right...I made a sharp right turn into the right lane...and I was very close to a frontal collision..what Oh that's right drive left.

Then on the freeway(M-something) what only 60 km/h..oh of course it's English miles then I looked at my GPS 97 km/h...well this was better.

I'm in England again have been in Liverpool and are now on my way back with a delivery to Southampton...so far so good no mishaps..

Guess some English player may have the same problems driving on European roads

I visited Britain in ETS2 just once, and then never again...

Jep its ETS2.

It's must be my OCD because I have to visit every town on the map in UK, before I can leave it behind me.

So I may take a third and a last trip or I may drive free to rest of the cities and then back to Europe.

Still a nice game, very relaxing, and in VR a blast. I still go back to it from time to time, and still enjoy every trip.

Not everything, every genre or purpose works well with VR, on cannot just add VR compatability to everything and it is all miracles and wonder sjust becasue it is VR. But some genres really beg to be used in VR, and driving games and racing sims certainly are one of the top candidates for this.

I play table tennis frequently since over two years now. In VR. That good it works both in SP and MP!

Reality versus VR:

ive done UK and European truck driving for real many moons ago ! also done Canada so best of both worlds i guess

As for the ETS i always thought when it first came out why the heck would someone want to simulate their real day job lol, but then you have train and ship sim and also flight sims so its an addiction !

hope your keeping to the European driving hours legislation along side the working time directive

Usually Virtual Boss fires me due to laziness and too relaxed driving.
