You also have to take pay attention to a number of things related to the truck, such as filling fuel from the stations on the road, letting the driver rest and sleep in the places designated for that, and doing some maintenance on the truck from time to time. There are indicators for fuel, sleep, and maintenance that appear in multiple places in the game so, you should pay attention while driving.

Different truck driving control methods

You can choose the appropriate method for you to drive the truck at the start of the game, and at any time you can change the method from the game options, and these methods are:

  • Real Automatic:

    In it, the gears are shifted forward D, reverse R, or normal N mode, with the gears changing automatically when driving forward.
