ATS Special Transport DLC

So yesterday was the first time I have tried the Special Transport DLC, I have never bought it in ETS2, because I never play that game in single player. I didn’t really know what to expect, quite honestly.

So I went to the VOLVO dealer in Tucson and traded in my unwanted Peterbuilt 389, anyone who knows me knows I’m a Kenworth man!

Once I had the new truck, it was time to take on a Special Transport. I found the 20×20 foot box going from Phoenix Transport in Phoenix AZ to Sierra Vista AZ. I was impressed with the police escorts and all the escorts blocking the ramps on Interstate 10.

I managed to deliver the load safely and in a timely manner even though it seemed to take forever. 28 mph on the interstate is painstakingly slow!

The AI traffic are a bit off the charts though… they were passing left and right when they had no business overtaking me.

Overall this was a GREAT experience, one that I look forward to having again and again! It was well worth the $4.99usd that it cost. Thanks SCS Software! It was worth waiting for the ATS version to be released.

November Food Challenge

Because November marks the Thanksgiving Holiday in the USA, I thought a food challenge would be in order. This challenge will end on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2018 at Midnight Central Time.

The winner will receive $10 USD added to their steam wallet. Please make sure that you have friended Bulletstorm65 on steam! It will take a week for you to get your winnings if you friend me the day you win! I hear there will be a steam sale going on, so you will want to make sure you can get your $10 as soon as possible.

So, to enter, all you have to do is send me a DM on the BSG discord, telling me you want to be in the challenge and what your TrucksBook name is so I know which drivers to watch…

Review of the simu shift knob

This is my review of the Simu Replacement shift knob that allows you to shift 18 gears in your driving games.

  • First, this shift knob cost $100! That less than most all the other knobs available.
  • This knob came to my door in 3 days! No waiting months!
  • It was easy to install on the Logitech driving force shifter. Just 2 set screws!
  • It has stood up to a years worth of pushing the switches!

So there are a couple of things….

It’s not a Eaton Fuller look alike knob, nor does it have gear pattern medallions for it.

When you drop off or pick up a load, you are exiting the “driving” screen and when you return you are in neutral and your switches become “confused”. In other words if you were in high speed, the switch stays in high but when you return you are in low. So you have to manually change the switch back to low. Same with the splitter.

Not a big deal and honestly I don’t think it’s an issue with the knob, I think it’s the game actually. I’m sure all the others, techaffliction, skrs, etc all exhibit the same behavior.

It comes with an arduino nano and if you wanted you could add a switch or 2 to the knob for the Jake brake and maybe PTT for discord or teamspeak. Just a thought there…

So I’m my opinion I give this shift knob a 9/10 score.

See ya on the roads…

ATS Trailer Ownership

So is the promised “Trailer Ownership” coming soon? According to a blog post on SCS softwares’s site, it is….

I really think this will help out the VTC’s have a standard pain scheme and easily have all trucks and trailers look alike. Not really an easy feat considering the paint section of the dealership doesn’t have color codes making it necessary to “guess” the color using screenshots.

My biggest gripe about ATS is the fact we have so few “stock” trucks, compared to ETS2. Well, as well as the map space. But ETS2 has been out for a lot longer.

All things considered, I cannot wait for this update, hopefully it will be released at the same time as Oregon! Wouldn’t that be awesome!?!

It’s been a year?

Wow, it’s already been a few days over a year, I have been streaming… Started out on YouTube, and added Mixer and Twitch. Too many nasty trolls on Mixer so I dropped them, and once offered affiliate status with twitch, I quit live streaming to YouTube Gaming.

BUT, I think I will be going back to YouTube Gaming for Live Streaming as well as Twitch, and just drop the affiliate agreement. It’s been 6 months now, and I have not received a single payment from Twitch, even though I have met the required amount for a payment, $100.

Since we are talking about money and sponsorship’s, I started with Patreon, and they take quite a chunk of the money you pay on a monthly basis. So I have decided to use Paypal and create my own sponsorship “service”, so to speak. Visit http://bulletstormgaming.com/sponsor/ if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.

Yea, this means you won’t be able to use your Amazon Twitch Prime Free Sub on Bulletstorm65, but I only got $2.49 of that anyway, not that it’s about the money, because it isn’t! But the money allows me to do Giveaways, and gift games, and buy new games to create more and better content for the channel.

ATS Public Convoy is MOVING!
