Danny takes some goats cheese from Manchester to Bremen, while checking out some cool mods along the way. There may have been one or two small crashes.

    It is quite enjoyable for a mellow, calming roadtrip. It is all the more fun if you use a Playstation controller. Or maybe I just prefer sticks over keys.

    I disagree on the controller. I much prefer keyboard, though I couldn't really tell you why. I think it's because of how you can move your head with the mouse more easily.

    Somebody from Europe?  Your're a European? Or are you one of those "let's move Britain halfway the ocean so we aren't part of Europe anymore" types of people? ;) 

    The bit with the red lanes was in the Netherlands (you crossed into Germany slighly after). In NL it's indeed so that cycling lanes are indicated in red. Obviously there would also be symbols of a bicycle to make them proper legal cycling lanes. Without such markings they are just 'suggestion' lanes and any traffic may use them.  If you see a bicycle symbol then it's limited to bicycles and mopeds. 

    Some of the roads look a bit weird, such as the exits on the German autbahn. At a clover intersection you may see that the entry-merge lane is also the exit-merge lane but if it's just an exit you normally won't see the straight lanes changing into an exit lane. That would confuse a lot of people and have them drive rather radically like you did there. 

    Ausfahrt (out-drive) simply means exit (from a motorway), you can't drive to ausfahrt, it's not a destination. 
    Thinking of it, I don't think I saw 'uit'  (out) at the Dutch motorways to indicate an exit. 

    Driving in the left most lane on the motorway would earn you a fine aswell IRL. :p

    In the below (seems bdly photohopped) pto you can see cars on the 'bicycle suggestion lane'  (it's only a suggestion as there are no marking on the road). The bicycle suggestion that you passed seemed  bit random. The layout of the road being somewhere between a 50 (residential) and 80 km road (countryside) road. Might have been a 60km road (outside of residential areas) but you may find where 80 km/h is just not feasonable.

    And I didn't see the Dutch exit (uit) signs or did I miss them?

    He WAS European. Thanks to the nation voting to leave, the Disunited Queendom is not in Europe anymore. It is its own little mini-continent now.

    Technically ENB is not a mod considering that it's third party and uses none of the games software at all. It's a graphical enhancement tool at best description. You can actually use ENB's settings from one  game into another as long as that game supports it.

    Anywhoo...No music\in-game radio while you drive or did you disabled it? Or is it not available?


    Keep on trucking.

    So there is music/Radio in game?


    Hmmn I might check it out then.

    Aye. You can add streams to the game, allowing you to listen to stuff like BBC News, radio stations and so on, whilst driving. No real reason to not just have them running outside the game, but it does add some immersion.

    The game does have music. The problem is that even though the developers do have license to use that music, the gamers somehow are not allowed to have that audible in their videos. I never understood that, but it is sadly true. If you have the in-game music playing, your account will get a copyright strike.

    They don't have license to use the music, nor does ETS2 have music as such. It has menu music, but when you drive, you don't get any background music. 

    What you do get is a bunch of radio streams, but those aren't associated with SCS Software whatsoever. You just add them to a text file and the game can then access them, but there's no licensing agreement, so what you're doing is basically recording a radio.
