Topic: Inter-session Planning Thread
Hey guys. So this upcoming Sunday (in Shadowrun [please don't put me on a watchlist]) we're looking at stealing a container full of hardware, including explosives. After a couple of hours of spitballing, we figured that the best course of action is to steal the truck before it even gets to the port - and we've decided the best way to do that is to divert the truck to a weigh station.
There are two options for weigh stations. The first is to use one that is attached to a rest area, the second is to do one that's off on its own.
(This post is only partially because I wanted the excuse to go exploring in American Truck Simulator.)
The top two are of one with a rest area. The scales are still somewhat isolated, which is nice, but there's still other people around. The big benefit is that while we've got the truck sidelined, the military escort can largely go into the rest area and leave us alone.
The two on top are of a weigh station without a rest area. The benefit is isolation (never mind the AI driver invading my personal space here) and the downside is that there's not much for the grunts to do while we try to get the truck and sabotage/steal their own truck.
Thoughts? Also we can plan for contingencies; Burnout will spend a bit of time researching the standard procedure during such a stop so as to not tip off the driver, and if anyone else accidentally goes into the weigh station while the lights are on. Day of, his car will be ready to go in case the truck just blows the weigh station entirely.
