Start of the First Day: Balance - €4,300/€1 Million
Whoa... Where am I? What the hell happened? Last thing I remember is going into that weird truck salesman guy's store...
Pressing M twice brings out a minimap big enough to see where the poor hero is.
3... 2... 1...
He takes a few minutes to calm down, but eventually...
You... heard all of that?
Son of a bitch.
Do I look like a werewolf?
Then don't ever call me a son of a bitch again, alright?
Fine, fine. Anyway, is there a job for me or not?
Find out for yourself. There's an Eurogoodies just around the corner, go there and look at the job offers.
Well, first, I'm gonna see if I can't fix the ride on this fucking thing.
You're expected to press E to start your engine. The game will do it for you if you attempt to accelerate, so...
|The truck repair and upgrade interface. Annoyingly, you can only buy one tier of upgrade at a time.|
Ah fuck. Well, I'll get some fuel consumption upgrades and repaint this bitch. I hate green.
Thaaaaat's more like it! Now, onto this Eurogoodies place...
|This is the interface for selecting a haul. You click a good or a city, and you get a list of cities or goods (respectively) that need hauled to that city. Clicking on Manchester, for example...|
|Brings up these hauls. Clicking on Newcastle, which is a little bit further away...|
|...Reveals that hauls to Newcastle are more valuable than hauls to Manchester, generally speaking.|
A thing to note, kiddo. Supply fluctuates depending on how often a location receives deliveries of those goods, so you can't just haul Yoghurt to Newcastle forever and ever to get your million, the price will keep going down. Got that?
Gotcha. I'll take Tomatoes on this run, up to Newcastle then.
Not a bad choice for your first haul. Should make back the money you put into the truck's fuel consumption and the new paintjob. If you do anything dumb, I'll tell you.
Thanks for the vote of confidence...
Everything goes fine and well for our hero, until he reaches his final destination... (I didn't catch shots of the actual moments, annoyingly. Otherwise there'd be snarky commentary going on around those... Maybe next time.)
|When you deliver cargo, you get the money for the travel...|
|...And have to pay off any fines you incurred in transit.|
€800?! I only scratched one of those guys, and the other one hit me!
Maybe next time you won't zone out whilst driving. Speaking of, you're only allowed to drive for 8 hours without taking a rest. You should probably catch a nap and repair your truck before doing anything else... It doesn't look like those knocks hit you hard, but even little hits like that cost you money.
Well... I think I still made a profit on today. I think.
Okay let's see... €4014 - €44... €4010 - €40... €3970. Seems oka--
You started today on €4300.
WHAT?! I made a loss on my first day... Ah fuck this, I'm going to bed. Where's the hotel?
You're in it right now.
|Good night, cruel world.|
Oh FUCK my life.
DUSK OF THE FIRST DAY: €3970/€1 MILLION
Sorry this one doesn't end with you guys getting to decide anything, but I futzed my screen-taking so much that I pretty much had to crap this one out.
