    Have been enjoying the MP since day one and that is where I drive nowadays. Only use SP when the annoying 'no jobs' glitch happens after certain updates.
    The MP mod is improving day by day, with an ear to the community. Is there any other way to drive now?...

    Lost many hours to that game & bound to lose many more!

    Three years of ETS2 and still addicted. 10% MP but 90% SP. Great game either way but the mods, only usable in SP (other than winter mod) really makes this game shine.

    American Truck Simulator (ATS) is the same game engine (with a few updates) but pretty much the same game but with a new area (California, Nevada and soon as a free DLC Arizona). Unfortunately the games will not be linked (you cannot transfer from one to the other).

    Euro Truck Simulator 2 (ETS2) has a ton more content, with the two DLCs "Going East" and "Scandinavia". Add to that mods such as Promods (doubles the map and adds a huge amount of detail to the existing map) , RUS Map (adds Western Russia and works with Promods) and Truck Sim which adds more of Western Europe (Western France, Spain, Portugul), Italy, Greece and North Africa (does not work with Promods).

    ETS2 also has a multiplayer mod which has a very large population (several servers with 2300 drivers on each at the peak times of day).

    ATS will, someday, also have these additions but it is well worth buying ETS2 and the DLC. You will really enjoy both.

    Don't forget; ATS is only 20.00 on release so it is a great deal. Content is low right now but it will grow.

    Having both titles in your library is not at all a bad thing.

    ETS2 is often on sale via Steam. I bought a mega pack (all ETS2 content plus some older games) for 16.00 during the Christmas sale.

    Have finished up 4 deliveries so far. I used to drive truck as a teen during summer so this is coming back quick..:)
    Where is the best place to get mods for the game? I've already signed up at World of Trucks too.

    Getting the mods for ETS2 is problematic. Most of them are uploaded to dodgy host sights. The SCS forums are the best place to look. Promods and Rusmaps can be downloaded free without hassle from the Promods website. The MP mod is also hassle free from their site.

    SCS has mentioned that they want to incorporate the steam workshop to help keep Downloader safe.

    I'm liking the MP servers (when they're full) although the lack of AI traffic makes it quite easy on trips, but knowing everyone else is a "real" driver is neat.
