I guess I’m pretty hooked. It was dark in the game, but I noticed somehow it seemed bright out anyhow, and I looked up and discovered that the sun was coming through the windows and I had played all night!
I finally managed to get all the material types I need to build the mountain bridge, although I’ve only managed to get one of the two concrete blocks out there — I ended up hauling one load of concrete over the mountain with my pickup truck. I guess load two will have to wait until I’ve slept.
I had planned out this whole route for getting my starter truck to the factory side of the mountain. I scouted it out and it seemed pretty doable. I drove the truck in a round about route and I thought I was going to be in the clear and then it bogged down and got stuck in a small stream :-(
It was interesting seeing how the physics engine works. I tried crawling over a steep shortcut with the pickup and the two-load scout trailer and it just couldn’t do it. Once the path got steeper no forward progress at all. Then I switched to the one-load scout trailer and while slow, that was doable. I’m assuming it’s because of the trailer weights.
Also I need to figure out how to backup with a trailer attached. I’m horrible at it.
