    Is it worth spending £2 more and buying FIA European Truck Racing for £13.49 from PlayStation Store..... although that only comes with 45 trucks and 14 tracks.....?

    It's £11.49 on PS Store.

    How many new services and scenarios does it come with in total?

    I think that Sophie was reacting to a discussion about HRR upthread, which comes out in about a week (.....I think)....

    I am looking at the MP15 and seriously considering it.... but I have now also seen the Class 89 appear for £11.99 (released today).... but I would need a further £14.99 to pay for London-Peterborough....

    Ack - these ££££S - they're just numbers.... LOL.....! Where do I put in my Credit Card number....? ;-D

    I really like the MP15 DLC so far. Have only played the tutorial and the first scenario, but seems to be of high quality.

    I don't have the exact number of services/scenarios in front of me, but seems to be a mix of MOW (two 2-part services, one NB and one SB), train rescue (at least one scenario), and a multi-part service assembling, running, and disassembling a special SJ-SF train. Others i'm not remembering.

    Well surely that for a start depends on whether you are really interested in truck racing? Personally I am not so it would be pointless purchasing it.

    For me value for money is the use and enjoyment I will get from a purchase and generally on a TSW DLC that is plenty, especially in this period where we are not going to have many options as to what we do with our spare time.

    When debating these purchases it often comes down to people knowing the cost of everything and the value of nothing!

    Off topic, but the FIA Truck Racing Championship is one of the most hilarious racing events I've ever been to. They're limited to 100mph so your advantage comes from acceleration and carrying as much speed as possible through the corners. The brakes have to have constant water feed to keep them cool, and if they lock up, the tyres are likely to melt. We saw them at Donington Park and when one went off at the old hairpin, it demolished the tyre wall and catch fence and ended up in what would normally be spectator banking (sensibly closed for this event). For spectator entertainment, it's right up there with monster trucks and top fuel drag racing! :)

    I am sure it's fun, I have seen the monster trucks before many years ago and they were great fun.

    I tend to like my motoring a little more sedate (I drive an Austin Maxi)!

    As usual, I cannot find a link to this DLC's user manual -- and don't tell me that it's on the product's store page, because I've looked there and the manual's link isn't available. Why on earth can't DTG just set up a link to all available manuals?????

    Following what happened with the Oakville DLC, I suspect that they've decided not to risk making manuals again for future releases on TSW. It's just not worth the liability.

    I suppose they could produce a manual, and then read it to check if it is correct - but that sounds like quite a lot of hassle, don't you think...?
