  1. "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?

      ^ 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.

  2. Any Battletech fans around here?  Who's been playing the new game?

  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.

      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.

      Sadly, there are not very many good WW2 naval games out there.


      This might be of some interest, I've been waiting on this simulator to release.


    4. TheCreepyTruckr


      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. :)

  4. 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)

    1. Baratako


      Googling "OBS input overlay" shows some interesting results and could be what you want. Also, defensive drving, such as swerving to avoid collision is something important that everyone should do, considering a collision may cause the vehicle to become uncontrollable and is best to avoid one if you can.

    2. TheCreepyTruckr


      @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.

    3. Baratako


      I'm not really an expert in OBS so I don't think I can help you much, sorry :( 


      Also, the swerving that I mention should be done only if there are no other vehicles within your vicinity. What I said was a bit vague I admit, so let me rephrase it: "Defensive driving, such as swerving, should be practised if the driver believes that another driver will collide with his vehicle, as long as the swerving or any other defensive driving maneuvre doesn't cause problems with other road users, himself or even the driver causing the imminent collision". So yes, obviously you aren't going to avoid a collision so that you can collide with something else, that would be a redundant action.


      Also, with the Winter Mod enabled, you should be expected to drive more cautiously. I'm not saying that you weren't, of course, but coming around an intersection, it would be a good idea to at least slow down. Again, not saying that you weren't, hell, maybe I would've crashed as well. Problem is: I don't know what exactly happened there, so I can merely offer you my insight. Nonetheless, I'm glad that situation was resolved without much hassle... well... at least no one was banned. Game Mods sometimes forget that we may make mistakes, we're all human, after all :D 

  5. Can someone explain to me how the latest windows update has broken Fallout 4 completely for me?  Fresh install, no mods, I freeze during any loading screen whether it's a new game or existing one.  None of my other games seem to have issues....   So why/how would just one game stop working completely when it was working fine a few days prior?

  6. Considering how crap I thought the first The Crew was, I've been having a remarkebly good time with the second.  Although I will never understand why they need to throw so many videos at you during the first hour of the game.

  7. Dear mods:  When reporting, does a players name need to be directly visible when they're the closest player listed in the nearby players tab (especially if less than 5 meters)?  Because if that's the case I'm going to start rear-ending people since most of them probably won't have their cameras facing backwards to catch the offence.  I shouldn't have to go to a chase/free cam to look at an offender that's ramming my trailer while I'm driving in traffic, that's incredibly stupid and just asking for further problems if I'm now having to either stop or take my eyes off the road.

  8. Does anyone have a decent alternative to YouTube?  I'm getting annoyed with constant copyright strikes, especially from twats that don't actually own the rights to the songs. 

  9. Does anyone have an issue with DirectX11 not displaying the game in fullscreen mode?  If I launch windowed mode first it's fine, if I launch in fullscreen it just stays minimized in my taskbar until I enter/fumble my way through the menus and into the game.

  10. Driving is not rocket science, so why is it that so many players cannot grasp simple concepts?  Quite a few players like to rage at me in-game because I drive a limited truck but it's surprising how angry they get when I point out that I've passed them for the 5th time in a row because they keep crashing.  You don't have to be slow people, but you don't need to be spending 100% of your time at redline either.  Be consistent and you will be surprised at how quick you can be.

  11. First, does anyone know whats up with the lag for the status update?  I click to make a new one and the website takes 30-60 seconds before it will actually do anything.  Works fine for everything else.

    Secondly, does anyone have any good tips for keeping a puppy from disconnecting cords while they drive?  She doesn't care for any of my other cords but loves to attack the one for my wheel and seems to enjoy pulling it out of my pc.

  12. 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. :)

      As long as your replies comply with the forum rules, everything is fine. If they do not, Forum Moderators will take action.


      Other than that, I want to iterate the following part of the rules:

      On 12.12.2017 at 3:05 PM, scarface0359 said:

      §4.3 Staff and TruckersMP

      Administrators reserve the right to kick or ban you from the Truckers MP servers at any point if needed. We ask that if you are banned that you create a ban appeal and not private message any member of the staff team. The servers, mod and admins are provided free of charge for everyone and in that sense, everyone is a guest on the servers and it is a privilege that can be removed at any time. No form of persecution or offence toward any other members or staff team members will be permitted. We reserve the right to remove your right to access the servers at anytime and at our discretion. Please note that the creators of the TruckersMP mod are not linked to SCS in any way, shape, or form. TruckersMP staff can be exempted from these rules if deemed necessary for it's duties.



      Basically, that means that there does not always have to be a rule violation present. If a person is annoying/harassing other people or just continuously disturbing the peace of the forums, this paragraph might be applied without any prior notice. If you interpret that as a threat rather than an informational clarification, you should ask yourself whether there is a reason to understand it that way.

      @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.

    4. Ediin


      I'm not offended in any way don't worry. I actually don't really care about what you even wrote, I just stated what triggered the warning as well as explanations by using quotes.

  13. 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

    1. SprinterFS


      Slow down, keep 3x normal following distance, plus some luck in that you don't run into griefers who may or may not target you. I survived C-D with full server EU2 and winter mod today.


      Too many players are just impatient and drive too fast for the condition.


      About garage choice - please make a suggestion so developers can see.

    2. TheCreepyTruckr


      @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.

  14. I got a warning for telling some person to stop whining on the internet like a child.  Oh I'm sooooo sorryyyy TruckersMP, did I hurt someones feelings?  If I actually insulted him and called him an offensive term I can understand but seriously, telling someone that they aren't entitled to anything and to stop complaining?  Honestly, I don't give a shit about it, I'm just laughing at the idea of these kids going into the real world and finding out that no one gives a shit if they get offended.

    1. Anriandor


      Hello @TheCreepyTruckr,


      I would kindly like to remind you that the forum is not the proper place to be discussing any decisions made or actions taken by TruckersMP Forum Moderators or anything else related to their behaviour on the website in web reports.


      For the purpose of complaining, please use the corresponding system in the first place and follow the appropriate ways rather than writing about this on the forum. Also, keep in mind that it can take quite some time until Upper Staff, i.e. Moderation Manager, CM or above, have reviewed your inquiry and the situational circumstances.


      For further information, please refer to the following topic which provides necessary information about the feedback system of TruckersMP:

      Other than that, please refrain from that kind of language as you are on the best way to receive a penalty for doing so.



      Thank you very much for your understanding. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.



      Kind regards,


      TruckersMP Moderator




  15. 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. sgpch1983


      well some of us also dont want to.. we wait patiently for mwl and the dev team to update :)

    2. 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.

  16. 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.

      Maybe they prevent a few crashes that way, thats my guess, especially on C-D, im sure the rest of the map is relatively safe... but it is nice that doubles are somehow limited like  IRL

    3. 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.

    4. antrax737


      I'd say it was beta bug.

  17. I love all the players that think EU2 is for speeding only.  Guess what guys, those of us that play realistically can put up with the trolls, griefers, and speeders; so you guys can put up with those of us that want to play properly.   It's not our fault that you can't drive or overtake properly.

  18. I love Collies but why do they have to be so smart?  Just cause I'm ignoring you doesn't mean to go and turn my PC off, that doesn't get you any love. XD

    1. Digital


      :lol: They are pretty smart, I've grown up with Collies since I was born and still own one now. :wub:

  19. I love how delicate some of the playerbase is.  This poor kid thinks me telling him to "Look next time" before he pulls out into traffic is offensive and that I need to be banned for it.  I think he's going to be very disappointed when he goes outside and leaves his safe-space. :D

  20. 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.

      well i play 30fps or so because graphics cards are expensive my dell 5675 does the job & its highly upgradable 

    3. TheCreepyTruckr


      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.

    4. ScaniaFan89


      Redit in  nutshell

  21. 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.

    1. Show previous comments  1 more
    2. TheCreepyTruckr


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

    3. Granite


      Pretty sure it's hidden by default for some time now, I know I had to set my history public. It's actually quite rare to see someone with public punishment history, cause most people just don't fiddle with account settings.



      yes but i screwed up in 2015


      and ive not had a ban since


      and its 2019


      also its my fault you can hide them ;)

  22. I need to watch more tv shows.... Waiting for the next episode of The Expanse is killer.

  23. I'd probably get banned for someone mistaking a quote as "insulting" but if I'm ever at fault for running a red light, I'm seriously tempted to quote a scene from American Dad:  "Smith you idiot, I had the red!" (I love Avery Bullock).

  24. I'm sure there's a technical limitation behind it, but I really wish we could increase the player draw distance (I already have it maxed).  With how often people speed, it's a little annoying to have them popping into existence while you're in the middle of a turn.  I'll normally use the player list to judge if I have approaching traffic, but in high player count areas, it's sometimes a little hard to judge who is approaching an intersection.



      its happened to me at least twice and both times i've had a truck plow into me

  25. 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.

    1. TheCreepyTruckr


      @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.
