comment Do AI cars “cheat”?
Although I have to say, at least in Grid I've yet to observe the AI drivers slow down noticeably to let me catch up... Maybe the rubber band only stretches in one direction?

I'd encountered dynamic difficulty adjustment before in other games, but not in racing games (of which I've mainly played the Colin McRae series). Thanks for the explanation!

@MichaelMadsen I hadn't heard the term "rubberband AI" before, but looking it up, it seems to explain what I've experienced in the game. If you want to expand the comment into an answer, with maybe some relevant links, I'd be happy to mark it as accepted.

comment Why are expected delivery times given as a range?
I tried a couple of deliveries where I finished within the expected time range (pretty close to the start of the range), but didn't notice any bonuses. What does it show up as on the mission completion screen?

I guess I speed a lot, then, because most of the time I'm several hours early :)

Interesting. I certainly haven't noticed this. In fact, I just finished a delivery ~5 hours early and my total payout (sans damage penalty) was exactly as originally advertised. Do you have any specific examples where you've been paid less for arriving too early?

So what happens in real life when a driver delivers the cargo early? My experience with truck driving is limited to ETS2 and GTA: San Andreas...

comment Why are some roads blocked off?
I have the full version, as well as the Going East DLC (although the question was posted before said DLC was released).

comment Why are some roads blocked off?
Okay, fair point about making cities look bigger, though I have to say the floating sings kind of ruin the illusion. I can also see the blocked off rural roads as adding detail to the countryside. But what about the stub intersections (see screenshots #2)?

comment Can I send money to my friend's Steam wallet?
I can confirm that Steam wallet cards work across countries. I've successfully activated cards bought in the US, and Steam has added the correct amount in Euros to my wallet without any problems. Too bad they don't use the $1 = €1 rule here, though :)

comment What's the total size of all games I have on Steam?
This doesn't currently seem to work. The first issue I see is that Steam now uses binary prefixes, rather than SI prefixes, so game sizes are given in MiB/GiB, which causes the regex in the script to fail to find the sizes. There may be other issues as well, I haven't checked the script beyond that. Still, +1 for a creative approach.

@Mike If you look straight up, you might see Ben's response there.

comment Why are some roads blocked off?
@kalina If the devs didn't want to make a lot of roads, it would have been easier to not make a lot of roads, rather than to make a lot of roads but block some of them off. Though I suppose it can help make the game world look bigger and more detailed than it actually is. Would be nice to know for sure, though.

comment What is the “moddable version” of Serious Sam 3?
Achievements and leaderboards are disabled. Not sure about multiplayer.

@wok Sorry, don't know that for sure, I've yet to fully explore the game.

comment Where does 1000 Amps save game progress?
Note: on a 64-bit system, it'll be localhost\program files (x86)\steam\.... Also, if Steam is installed somewhere other than Program Files (eg. on a separate partition), then it'l be localhost\steam\....
