Do you want to be in control of your own route and package selection or prefer a pre-set route in our Driving Delivery Simulator game?

What option do you think is better?

Hello.

I am prototyping a driving/time-management game where the player must drive a delivery truck and deliver packages to various locations while avoiding obstacles and traffic.

What option do you think is better?
To make your own route and packages you want to deliver, or to go for pre-made routes?

Thank you for your advice!

I would give a pre-made route and package selection that you can edit, so you have the best of both worlds.
Thank you for taking your time.

So somehow you think about seleting the packages you want to deliver in a round and the game offers you a best route?

Assuming the package selection and possible destinations are somewhat complex, you're probably going to be dealing with (a version of) the traveling salesman problem/order picking problem, which means, depending on the scope of the game, it might not be possible to calculate the best route.

Do you want to join the Discord group?

I am looking for 5-10 gamers who want to give advice and feedback on the prototype.

It would be wonderful if you would join it.

I would go with a pre-made package and delivery location and get to choose my own route.

However, the problem with that is that after you balanced the game, there would really only be one route each mission that would be correct, so you might as well just give the player the route you want them to take.
