    Good suggestions there, honestly. My connection is 100mbps, and the hardware is excellent, too...Making long loading times odd indeed.

    You are not necessarily wrong. But compared to almost any other genre of game, Space Sims - even Elite - feature inordinate amounts of time spent doing literally nothing.

    Well, its been fun. But I am back on hiatus. Tried to do some delivery runs and some combat. Had a decent time of both. Made nearly 10 million credits in about a week of very limited, casual play. So...

    My main point though: if you're going to go Action first as your priority, then put it on an engine that can handle it. Rage had that; this decrepit gamebryo disaster...Not so much.

    If I ever step away from ETS2/ATS for more than short breaks, I will be very much surprised. They're like Zen. I seriously "play" them to help me relax and wind down for sleep.
