Heyo! After seeing someone from the Rising World community pick up ATS while I was playing, even gaining achievements I don't have, I thought I'd bring the two lovely games to this sub-forum. The two games being Euro Truck Sim 2 of the whole of Europe (or in time being full), and the whole of American (maybe even Canada & Mexico later) that you can truck, customize, and travel to various coasts enjoying the sight. Both games update in parallel, or closely to such, that you mostly get the same type of updates the other has, within reason.
Been playing 'Euro Truck Sim 2' happily because it allowed me access to Bratislava, Slovakia where I placed my base of operations at first, and always. I had to keep restarting my saves, yet keep putting it back as it was the first time around. I love ETS2, and I love the whole freedom of it. The same freedom you see in Rising World & Minecraft, and even Skyrim. Do things on your own terms where you aren't shoved into a linear gameplay style. As it is now I'm loving the Scandanavian update with Sweden being truly European-like while also giving off the Canadian Ontario vibe to it. It's awesome. A France DLC is coming soon also with it re-doing the current while filling in the void for us to further explore. I love trucking with my Canadian themed Volvo around Europe.
American Truck Simulator was an odd one when it was first announced, yet glad I purchased it. It has California, Nevada, and Arizona, yet it shall expand with time. The time people keep whining about, and the same whining you hear with Rising World with water and all that stuff. Art takes time, yet I'm happy I'm in for the long haul with ETS2, ATS, & Rising World.

As a bonus thought: I keep thinking about "what if's" with how I keep seeing Rising World in both ETS2 & ATS, and how it be like to drive trucks around. How one would create roadways using various hand-held & vehicle related road pavers, as well how you would truck from one destination to another delivering your goods. Even having to back up in either a box truck or an actual cargo truck to reverse in the manner in ETS2 & ATS. It be amusing if Red51 would model out both European & American related trucks in both compact & transport hauling manner that you'd have to literally back it up, or just make tram/train styled turning points for the inexperienced.
It's damn fun being able to explore in both games that I'm even wishing for Canada & Ontario to be added on the American Truck Sim side of things. WoT allows you to customize your plate to any state, as well as record your online contract stats, as well as expanding on its functionability as time goes on. It's similar to the Rockstar Club that Grand Theft Auto 5 & Online has, yet adds its own neat fun. Really can't wait to sport an Ontario plate, to visit Ontario, as well as make my base in Ottawa. It'll be years, yet can't wait for that to happen
