miscellaneous questions

  • Okay, so, I've been wondering about a couple of in-game things which I can't seem to figure out so I thought I'd start a thread with the questions.


    Route creation screen:

    The "Express" radio button: what does it do? It seems to skip certain stops, but I am not 100% sure.

    "Check-in time" field: No idea what this does.


    In-game:

    Driver schedule - breaks: It doesn't seem to matter when I take the brake, in the end I always get a "resting quality point deduction".

    9 Out of 10 times, the time that I need to take the break at, there is no resting place around (or not even available on the planned route!) so I need to pull over on the side of the road.

    Driving gears: I seem to not notice any difference between the driving gears D1, D3 and D5. I think I should notice the difference when (for instance) pulling away at a traffic light or cruising down the highway.... but I don't :S


    Overall

    I was having a lot of problems with regard to stuff popping in and out (most annoying where traffic lights, their "lightbundels" and traffic signs).

    I added some code to the DefaultEngine.ini which I found somewhere on the forum:

    Code
    1. [SystemSettings]
    2. foliage.LODDistanceScale=2.0
    3. r.ViewDistance=3.0

    I've been trying and testing but I am unable to conclude whether it's working or not.

    As far as I know this are multipliers on a previously set value, but maybe I should go to more extreme values?
