This add-on modification is suited for those who wish to download a heavy lorry when playing Euro Truck Simulator 2.
True Mechanical Muscle
One of the most interesting features of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is that the player has the ability to upgrade the lorries that are driven from location to location. There are indeed times when a more heavy-duty variants than those which are offered in the standard game. This is the primary reason why the massive Mercedes-Benz Actros could be a beneficial addition. In most cases, this is the desirable unit for those who plan on hauling heavy loads or construction materials. What can the player expect to enjoy when downloading this MP4?
Highly Detailed Graphics
The Euro Truck Simulator franchise is known as boasting impressive vehicular graphics. This example will therefore definitely not disappoint. First, there are shots at multiple angles. As with other lorries, variables such as colours and patterns can be selected. However, many fans state that the real magic begins inside of the cab. This interior is incredibly detailed. It displays such features as petrol, miles per hour, oil pressure and warning lights. Interestingly enough, there is even a built-in GPS system included. This vastly improves the overall driving experience while not detracting from the gritty feel of the open road.
Fully Integrated Within Game Play
The Mercedes-Benz Actros can be driven much like any other lorry. Once the software is installed, all of the missions associated with Euro Truck Simulator 2 are able to be enjoyed with ease. One of the benefits of this model is that there are several missions which can be more easily accomplished with the use of a heavier vehicle. As this will gain valuable experience points and unlock different levels, it only stands to reason that the upgrade makes perfect sense. The sole criticism here is the same that has been said in regards to the game itself; the missions and driving scenarios can become repetitive over time.
The Download Process
Let us remember that this is an MP4 file. The player will need to have it decompressed before it can be installed. WinRAR is the most common system that is used for this process. Once it is decompressed, the entire bundle should be copied to the Documents/Euro Truck Simulator 2/Mod folder. It can then be accessed much like any lorry within the game. Of course, it is also necessary to have the original Euro Truck Simulator 2 present on one's operating system as well.
Barring the hard drive capacity allocated for the existing game, there are a few basic requirements to install this MP4. The file size is only 18 megabytes, so memory is rarely a concern. It is able to be installed on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Direct X 9.0 or a similar graphics codec is recommended (the same as used for the entire game).
This modification has been praised by most driving enthusiasts across the board. They claim that it is the most lifelike unit produced to date and thanks to its robust build, hauling serious tonnage is never an issue. Let us conclude by listing the primary benefits and any (potential) drawbacks.
- A highly detailed interior
- A realistic exterior
- The ability to be immediately incorporated into the Euro Truck Simulator 2 platform
- The only potential disadvantage is that the entire game itself can prove to be a bit monotonous. This is more a criticism of the platform as opposed to the mod
