First off it should be noted I like sims, this is not the first sim I have played and have spent many hours on Farm sinulator and Euro truck. However....
There is no way the developer has tested the game play on 50 PCs as they claim. I think they have simply installed on 50 PCs and checked the start up screen loads.
This game is not finished. Far from it.
Everybody who has bought the game is being used as beta testers. The game sort of works but has too many erros too often.
Everybody has reported that the crane truck crashes the game when being unloaded - this is something you would expect to have been picked up in testing. They claim a ptach is on the way and they seem to have had no problem replcating the crash so It really would have been picked up in a even poorly done test phase.
My trucks on auto now randomly claim the wrong garbage is being dumped at the wrong place when its not. General waste to the landfills is correct and has been for the last 5 in game days. Now every other dump is wrong apprently.
Driving the organic truck and no matter where I park the guy on the back can not get off the truck due to a none existant obstruction.
Take the dumper to the incinerator and try to switch back to the crane without driving back to the landfill. Game hangs then crashes.
The phyiscs system is ♥♥♥♥. Cars have infinate mass as do street signs. My truck must weigh 15 tons and I have 10 tons or garbage in the back. Why do I bounce off of street signs!!! Yes I am not supposed to be driving it like GTA but a street sign should not stop my truck.
Everything is far to happy to ragdoll for the slightest reason. I can make my bulldozer bounce 10 feet high over the landfill. If you stick the handbrake on while unloading a truck at the dump you fire off like a rocket towards the perimeter fance ragdolling along the way.
Graphics are extremely poorly optimsed. I have a PC well beyond the recommended specs but get frequent half second freezes and when using the crane to the load the dump truck the FPS drop to about 10 when the claw is full of garbage.
The only thing the devs have done well is the trailer video. It makes the game look far better and more interesting then it is. False representation in the extreme.
This game needs at least another 12 months of coding just to be playable and maybe even enjoyable.
