  1. I've done it a couple of times to see what all the fuss was about and to challenge myself. Don't see the attraction tbh.
  2. Some people that play the game don't drive in irl, so don't know the rules. Others just don't care. The rules also vary from country to country.
  3. There was some servers without speed limits. As a general rule of thumb, speeding causes accidents. Remember a lot of kids play the game, who don't have a clue how to drive properly. The speed limit is reasonable, it is pretty much national speed limit in the UK, so it's perfectly fine.
  4. In the UK there are multiple meanings of this. A single long flash from a vehicle coming the other way is "Hello". Multiple short flashes in rapid succession from a vehicle coming the other way is warning you of a hazard you are approaching. A short flash is usually someone letting you out or saying "thank you". A long flash from a vehicle behind you, usually on a motorway, is instead of the horn (we don't really use horns on motorways here).
  5. They're not allowed to act like that. Please don't fall into thinking that all car drivers are like that though, it's only a minority. Sometimes it may be a genuine accident. The cars are difficult to control, especially for kids who don't know how to drive irl. In my personal experience there are an equal amount of trolls driving trucks, if not more. As others have said, record and report. I'd also recomend using a cheat profile on MP (e.g large amounts of money). You will get damage, either through accidents or trolls.
  6. Brilliant guide! Hopefully other players will now be able to understand what drivers of these large loads are doing, instead of trying to overtake dangerously.
  7. Suggestion Name: Rear Orange LEDs - Scout Car Suggestion Description: The orange LED strobes that can be fitted to the front bumper of the scout car should also be in the back window, like the blue lights are. Any example images: N/A Why should it be added?: Having orange strobes in the rear window of the pilot car increases visibility from the rear, which is important for escort operations on dual carriageways and motorways. This also opens up the possibility of having scout cars with effective hideaway orange stobes. This could be very useful for people who want a normal looking car, but needs the ability to have extra visibility on ocasions (e.g a VTC manager supervising escort drivers, without being directly involved in escort duties). This removes the need to fit a beacon to a car with a plain painjob, meaning players can avoid looking like a 'traffic control' troll.
  8. Suggestion Name: Replace Pilot Car Skin Suggestion Description: Some new pilot skins should be created for the scout car, that replace the wording 'Pilot' with 'Abnormal Load', 'Long Vehicle', 'Convoy Escort', 'Escort Vehicle', etc. Any example images: N/A Why should it be added?: The current 'Pilot' wording is slightly ambiguous and does not accurately show the purpose of the vehicle. Less generic wording, such as those listed above, more accurately describe the purpose that the vehicle is being used for. Not only does this (hopefully) encourage more professional use by players, but it also gives other players a better idea of the hazard that lies ahead. I believe that the simple act of adding a few new skins (using the current design, but with different wording) would help the pilot car better perform it's function and would hopefully encourage players to use the vehicle in a more professional manner.
  9. Not so long ago, I saw a video of one of the real operations events. I noticed that some of the event team were driving fire appliances. I was wondering if there is an SP version or if it is something that TMP have created. Thanks
  10. I really think we should tackle the people who have beacons switched on when they aren't needed. When they are used correctly, beacons actually serve a useful purpose.
  11. Well said. I was looking forward to the possibility of using that van. Also, you forgot to mention all the new blue strobes for the scout, which we were told would cause lag.
  12. I'd love to see the van introduced, especially if they got the matrix board to work. My main wish though, is for a nice LED light bar and LED strobes for the scout.
  13. I used to be in the actual Convoy Security Group, who are a great group of people with experience and rigorous training. This is nothing but a blatant copy, not even a good one at that.
  14. The thing is that's an SCS thing. Personally I would love to see this suggestion added. It would provide more variety and could actually make traffic look more local. Maybe if players take more pride in the cars they'll respect them more.
  15. Suggestion Name: Traffic Officers - A reassessment Suggestion Description: Traffic officers are something that is frequently suggested, but are often misunderstood as a players trying to fast track to becoming admins. However, I believe that recent developments in the game have made it possible for traffic officers to be a useful addition to TMP. Firstly, I would like you to forget any ideas that traffic officers would perform the functions of admins, they will not. I believe that traffic officers would be highly effective using the special transport van, if the development team can find a way for the matrix board to work. If this is possible, the traffic officers would patrol around, and when they come across and accident / congestion, they will stop at the side of the road, a short distance ahead, and use the matrix board to display a warning to approaching traffic. Traffic officers could also be given training to allow them to carry out single lane closure, on dual carriageways / motorways, or perform rolling road blocks (if you don't know what it is please Google it before you comment about it) to slow the traffic down, for the purposes of easing congestion. In the rare event that a full closure is needed, a TMP manager could give authorization to traffic officers to perform this function, thus allowing admins to continue with normal duties. It may also be beneficial for traffic officers to be able to teleport players to services, in order to clear a traffic jam. To answer any concerns about trolls and the abuse of these limited powers, normal TMP recruitment procedures would be used, as they are for forum moderators, etc. Any example images: N/A Why should it be added?: The implementation of this role, would ensure that congestion and accidents are kept to a minimum, and that the flow of traffic is not disrupted. This role, in certain circumstances, help to free up admins for more important duties.
