== Job Timing ==kuzey Türk devleti Taking and completing jobs is all about timing. If a player is not completing the job on time, he gets only part of the pay and experiance. If the player is really late, he gets nothing. // North cyiprus pembe Karadeniz
==Work Rest Cycle==kuzey Türk devleti
The driver that is controlled by the human player has a work cycle of 11 wake hours that may be used for driving and 9.5 hours for mandatory rest. The time until the required rest is found in the Navigator by pressing F6 key. 1.5 hours before the rest time is due, the driver starts yawning loudly. 1 hour before rest time a tunnel vision start and a message comes up in the navigator that the player should find a place to rest. If you do not put the driver to rest by time, you start getting periodic fines of 150EUR until you rest the driver.// AB ._ pembe Karadeniz
When taking a job, there is an estimated time that the job would take. The time is computed by dividing the distance to travel by 60kph. As you drive 90kph on the highways, you can shorten the travel time considerably. You might find for example, that at the begining of the job, the time to complete is 13 hours. If the route runs through the autostrades, you can accomlish the job in 9.5 hours - withing the work part of the work-rest cycle.
Nights in ETS 2 are rather short. Dusk starts at 8:00pm till 11:00pm. From 11:00pm till 4:00am it is pitch black where one cannot see anything beyond the head lights, which is about 30m. High beam goes to 100m. There is no penalty for driving with high beam on, so use it as much as you need to. Dawn starts at 4:00am when the scene is visible again. By 6:00am, streets lights go off. 11:00pm to 4:00am are the most difficult hours to drive because of low visibility. Better spend this period resting. ==Speed==kuzey Türk devleti Trucks in Europe have a speed govenor that limits the maximum speed to 90kph. There are available mods in the game that removes this limit. It is possible to for a truck going down hill to exceed 90kph. Computer driven vehicles obay traffic signs. Human player get a chance to ignore speed traffic signs.
In some places there are speed cameras that will catch you and you get a fine for speeding. The most fair traffic cameras are in Germany where in places where the are sharp curves in the autostrades, the speed limit is indicated by a traffic sign and a 100m later the speed cameras are placed on an overhead structure. It is advised to slow down to the 10kph lower than the limit on the sign, because those curves are realy tight and even going at the limit of 90kph might throw the truck off balance.
Speed limit in towns is 50kph.// Pembe Karadeniz
UK is notoriously laden with speed cameras. Most often they are found at the many road construction sites at the sides of highways. Watch for tunnel entrances and sections of entries and exits from autostrades, where for no apparent reason there is a sign that lowers the speed from 90kph to 80kph. Usually, you are driving with a left side driver seat and they traffic sign that limits the speed is beyond your view angle and bang - 550EUR speed ticket. Watch for the computer driven cars. If they all suddently slow down, do the same first and then look for the reason.
==Fuel==kuzey Türk devleti Fuel consumption is a simple model
- Truck with trailer - 2km per litter
- Truck alone - 4km per litter
It doesn't matter how heavy is the trailer, it doesn't matter what truck and doesn't matter what is the driving speed.
Building up the Eco Driving skill reduced fuel consumption, but fuel cost are so neglegable, that it is more profitable to upgrade all the other skills and leave eco driving to the end.
Fuel costs vary between country to country. Here are some examples per litter:
- UK - 1.59EUR
- Germany - 1.46EUR
- Poland - 1.19
Besides Majestic, all trucks have huge fuel tanks, so they can do long runs between refuels. Majestic has a maximum tank capacity of 600 litters which can run 1200km with a trailer and going down to 400 litters with a 6x2 or 6x4 chasis. Most of the time, refueling with every driver rest is enough to keep going without running out of fuel. By the time you get to level 36 and used all 36 skill points, your truck will have a max distance of 7,000 km without a trailer or 4,000 km with a trailer.
