  1. If any admins see this and don't mind answering, why is: "Using an interior from one cabin in another, this does not include steering wheels" not allowed under the save-editing rules?  Wouldn't the interior only be visible for the person using the truck? I don't see how this could possibly cause problems.

      @S p a r k i e - Thanks for the answer, aside from save-editing my skins I've always stuck with stock trucks, so I hadn't considered that as an issue.

  2. I love the players that hide their punishment history.  Does anyone seriously see a profile with hidden punishments and think the person is a good driver?  We already know you've screwed up, just own up to it.

      ^ Same here, even if I had any bans I'd still display it as it's not the end of the world.

  3. Anyone a fan of WW2 naval games that can recommend some good ones?  I've pretty much got the standards, Silent Hunter, Atlantic Fleet, Cold Waters, Dangerous Waters, etc. 

     

    I'm just looking for something new to play.

      LoL, same here.  It's sitting on my wishlist waiting for it's release.  I'm hoping it's good, I'm always up for another Silent Hunter or Cold Waters. :)

      I probably should have listed every game I have but that would be quite a list.  While I appreciate the suggestion I've been playing World of Warships since the Alpha.  At this point I'm probably looking more towards indie games as I probably own all the mainstream ones.

  5. Anyone have a program that would give a visual representation of what keys I'm pressing on my recording/screen? 

     

    Having an admin tell me that I could avoid an accident by braking earlier (when a player drove out in front of me) is annoying, especially when the admin ignores (or doesn't notice) that the engine brake, trailer brake, main brake, and retarder are active (speed is actively dropping quickly and some brake icons, like the retarder,  are visible lighting up on my trucks dash).   I would like if I could show without a doubt in my videos that I'm actually on the brake.

     

    (As for swerving to avoid the player, No.  If I swerve and hit someone that's on me.  If I keep my lane and he hits me, that's his fault.  It's not my job to be driving like an idiot just to avoid someone hitting me)

      @Baratako  I've had issues with OBS causing some fullscreen issues in a few of my games, so I've generally steered clear.  I might have to look into it though.  Are there any other control/key overlays you can think of?

       

      As for defensive driving, I already do drive defensively in-game, however I'm not going to start swerving and driving erratically around other players just because one player can't drive right.  If I swerved to avoid one player but crashed into a couple others, I'd still be at fault for causing that collision.  I drive the same way in-game as I do in real life.  According to the DOT unless physical contact is made with another vehicle, anything that happens will be your fault.  So if someone cuts you off and you swerve and crash your car/truck, it's your fault in the eyes of the law, not the fault of the other party. 

       

      I honestly just find it funny that I was told I could have avoided the crash by braking earlier (despite already being on my brakes and in a turning lane with no prior visual of the other player), yet the player that ignored his yield and drove out in front of me was "trying to stop with the winter mod" (even though I was running it too).  It's not like this is a real crash and I'm looking at thousands of dollars in repairs so I honestly don't mind letting it go.  I've just always laughed at inconsistencies and find the admin's statement to be funny, especially since if this happened without the winter mod it would be a clear ban for reckless driving and ramming.

  6. I can't speak for all of us, but I'm gonna say that this Canadian is laughing at all of you players that can't drive in the snow.  Even with the physics mod enabled and drinking & driving I have yet to spin or jack-knife, I have no idea how you guys can't keep it on the road.  Come drive the Rocky Mountains some time. :D

     

    Though I want to "thank" one of the players that rammed my truck as that was the first time I've had it start to jack-knife on me.  I'd like to think I would have recovered but unfortunately the trees lining the side of the road thought differently.

     

    -Side note- What, I can't select Finland as my EU garage?  Come on TMP, let's get on this.  My life is ending without it. :P

      @SprinterFS Definitely agree with too many driving faster than they should, C-D is perfectly doable as long as you drive properly for the weather.  

       

      As for the garage choice, I had just noticed it as I was posting my status update.  ATS has been updated with the Oregon maps and I imagine ETS will as well, it's probably just due to the holidays.

  7. My Christmas Truck is the best looking.  Change my mind.

     

    Edit: Can someone also explain why there's artifacting on the image?  It's only effecting my WOT screenshots and not my Steam or Nvidia screenshots

    1. TheCreepyTruckr

      TheCreepyTruckr

      I wasn't actually trying to embed the image, however I didn't know about the link, thank you for that.

      I initially just wanted to start a cheeky argument that my truck looked the best. :D

  8. I love players with potato PCs.  Why do most of you act like it's my fault that you can't game at a decent framerate?  Don't get me wrong, I get that other countries have different economic situations but why get pissed at me that I can play a game at 4K, 120 fps, when you can barely hold 30 fps?  Just because I have a 4K resolution issue that doesn't effect you doesn't mean I'm responsible for you playing on a toaster. 

     

    Reddit commenters are stupidly entertaining. :P

     

    -Edit- Yes I'm aware that not all players on older PC's act like this, I'm just making a generalization.

      First, I just want to clarify I'm not referring to TruckersMP or the ETS or ATS games, my post was started from another game's community.  I'm just using the status message thingy on TMP as an outlet to laugh at players like that.

       

      Like I said in my original post though, I understand others and their respective financial circumstances.   Not everyone is able to buy a top of the line PC and/or parts. Referencing what prompted me to make my post in the first place; if I report a bug that exists in 4K, but the majority of players only play in 1080 or less, that doesn't mean my bug is invalid and that it's worthy of shitposting on.  People/trolls trying to mock someone for being able to put thousands of dollars into something that they can't is something that I find funny, I just wish they could spend their time with constructive help instead of just trying to shit-talk people on the internet.

      LoL!  I think my 42" screens are fine, especially with 2 GTX1080's in SLI (When supported) powering them.  As for framerate, who says I'm playing shit 30 fps console games?  There are plenty of games that support 4K resolutions and 60+ framerates, especially if you have a powerful PC.

       

      -Edit- I feel I should also remind you/others that not all games are FPS locked, and that even those that are can often have it disabled.

  10. I love all the confusion from people that can't change their ETS2 version.  The TMP launcher even features instructions to help, so why is it so hard?
    (Just to clarify, this is just about random posts I've seen on the internet.  I find the outrage hilarious)

    1. TheCreepyTruckr

      TheCreepyTruckr

      And those players are fine.  I've just been laughing at the reddit posts or messages from my friends that have been freaking out because they can't get ETS2 to the right version, despite the TMP launcher having instructions.  There is nothing wrong with not understanding something or being confused, but there is no reason for some people to be throwing a tantrum on the internet about it.  It doesn't effect me in any way, just brings some humor to my day.

  11. Here's how this is going to work.  I will post what I want for my status update, and as long as I'm not actively insulting a user, you admins will leave it alone.  I don't care how much of a hug box you want to run, at no point is this actually causing a user some harm.  If this offends someone, come talk to me on Discord.  We'll have a right fun time. :)

      @Edinev - With regards to my first status post, I can see that I need to put an "LOL" on the end.  I don't honestly care about the warning (hell, even if I get banned I will just go play one of 100+ other games in my Steam library), I just found it funny that I got one for telling someone they weren't special.  All you people flip out about anything potentially negative that could offend someone; I just laugh that people could care that much as to be offended because someone on the internet said something they didn't like.  It might just be my age but I remember a time when it was acts of violence and directed hatred that people cared about, not just words.

  13. "I drive with a keyboard.  While I was driving I was typing in the chat and crashed.  I have video, why was I banned?"

    Just because you drive with a keyboard, doesn't mean you are allowed to drive recklessly.  I love how hard of a concept this is for people.  Why do you all feel like you're entitled to drive like a child?

    1. TheCreepyTruckr

      TheCreepyTruckr

      ^ Oh definitely, I'm not trying to bash on keyboard players (I started there myself).  I just find it surprising how many will use their control method to justify bad driving habits.  Typing while driving with a controller, wheel, keyboard, or mouse, is all the same.  It's still just distracted, reckless driving and could be solved by simply pulling over and stopping.

  14. I love all the outrage because double trailers are only available in Scandinavia. What is with all the entitlement?  Why are you people acting like SCS and the TruckersMP team should get on their knees and suck you off?  It's their work, they can do what they want with it and you can just sit and cry.

    1. TheCreepyTruckr

      TheCreepyTruckr

      @LordBenji - That's my main point though.  Sure, not everyone wants to play the same and I get that, but that is why single player exists.  If we want to play on the TruckersMP servers, we have to follow their rules.  They don't want double trailers outside of Scandinavia and the community should respect that.  Instead I've seen numerous posts with people whining that TruckersMP needs to change their rules and allow people to use the trailers anywhere.

       

      @antrax 737 - From what I've driven, the doubles are perfectly driveable outside of Scandinavia.  The problem comes at the service stations when you F7 or when trying to pick up a load at a company that isn't designed for them.
