What good is a simulator if it's not realistic? Trucking simulators in particular can go to extremes. When bridges close in real life, they close in . So why would you play with a mouse and keyboard instead of a steering wheel?
Well if you can't find or afford one, there's a DIY alternative. YouTuber ' bar stool and salad tong creation surely counts as one of the more original strategies towards truck simulation seen to date.
Built for Euro Truck Simulator 2, the steering wheel is made out of a computer mouse, a spinning bar stool, and salad tongs. It looks to effectively handle not just driving, but signal turning as well. If you want to build the out the wheel for yourself, you'll also have to adjust the mouse sensitivity within the game's settings to get it to work. But if you've gone so far as to repurpose a barstool to play Euro Truck Simulator, that shouldn't too much extra work.
