From the Author:
*** This map was designed for use by children ages 5-9.
*** The roads are easy to navigate, but there are a few bumps now and then.
*** A short drive through a shallow river section is included.
Every map I’ve seen created for ST is usually hard to drive on and more difficult to finish. As far as I can tell, this is the first map created for young children just starting out learning to play the game. I felt something like this might be needed for the parents who play ST, but can’t let their children join because the maps are just too hard and complicated. The map is easy to navigate and has no “surprises” on it. Once a child gets used to playing on this map, they will be ready to hit the “Big-Time” maps with you. Personally, I wish I would have had something like this when I was a child.
A child can learn:
1. …how to “un-cloak” a map 10. …camera positioning
2. …about driving over bumpy roads 11. …about map boundaries
3. …about driving through water 12. …about loading and unloading lumber
4. …about avoiding rocks 13. …the use of the mini-map (F1)
5. …about gearing options 14. …how to drive at night
6. …how to refuel a truck 15. …about staying near the center of the road
7. …about getting repairs at a garage 16. …about truck-to-truck rescues (if needed)
8. …about garage “rescues” 17. …how to winch (if needed)
9. …about damage control 18. …about mouse or controller use
Please leave your comments on here as to it’s “pros and cons” and what you think of this map.
The more comments I get, the more maps I will create.
