Virtual trucking helped a ton when i was backing up today, you also need to do wide turns to get that shit around stuff, also no problem...thanks SCS!

Yeah same, meanwhile in real life most of the time ur own lane works great...but il tell you the main thing that im still getting used to is sitting on top of the front wheels. Ur supposed to hug the outer line when doing left turns on roads like the one i linked, feels like ur driving off a cliff with how far out you can go

Cool looking road, sorry to hear that girl couldn't figure it out. Hope she does next time, we need more female truckers.

Nice job on the parking! Keep it up.

I steer in both games like I do in real life, that part has SCS nailed. How the trailer follows and how the truck steers in to the corners. Only the suspension physics are crap.

That's a nice piece of road, great job with backing up! I bet the teacher was impressed, I still remember the reaction my instructor had when I backed up the trailer first try! Thanks SCS! :D
Keep it up! Are there any 25.25m configs in Norway?
I saw a couple of YT vids with those configurations in Sweden, it's a nightmare to back up. You've got a dolly trailer attached to a rigid truck and there is a semi trailer attached to the dolly. Two pivot points.

Yeah the cab over the wheels must be pretty weird. I felt it even worse when riding buses. You're so far ahead it's crazy and while you're turning your ass can be over the kerb while your front wheels are like 2m back.

Hope you continue to do well and best of luck to that girl on figuring it out!
