    Turn "Truckersmp" into a payed service

    The magic trick to avoid trolls and idiots, don't connect to any other server than EU#1, all the trolls and bad players are on EU#2, I don't say everyone is bad a lot its the most dangerous server to play at peak times, don't like speed limit, choose another game like Need For Speed, Project Cars or the likes.

    Cruise control?

    I'm using it 99,9% of the times, I just wish we could adjust the speed better with it, or an automatic mode to automatically follow the speed limits on the road, I'm a realistic truck driver, I do drive like I would in real life, for me this game is as close as I would ever get to a truck, I can't have driving license even for a car because of my eyes, it was my biggest dream so at least in game, I can have fun.

    Disgusted By Beyond The Baltic Sea DLC

    Ok, lets exclude good truck drivers from the comment I've said above, but for all the other ones, if you check videos on youtube, you'll understand what I mean, it looks like some found their driving license out of a popcorn bag, and I'm surprised some found out how to correctly start their trucks. I know bad drivers exist everywhere, but a load of them seem to be in the Baltic area according to a lot of video compilations. Respect for all the good drivers from Baltic area, you certainly know who you are and probably already know which ones I refer as bad drivers, you probably saw them on the road or in the ditch while hauling your loads. The ones that don't respect anything and drink and drive especially.

    Disgusted By Beyond The Baltic Sea DLC

    Yeah, I know too well how real truck drivers don't respect speed limits, I watch a lot of TV documentary that shows how they drive in real life, and the worst is most drivers are from Baltic Sea country, they are the most dangerous ever, have 0 respect for anything, and often end up in crash, they drink and drive, don't respect their driving times and such, but its for another topic I guess.

    Disgusted By Beyond The Baltic Sea DLC

    So far, I enjoy the new content, but something that drives me nuts is the constant speed limit changing everywhere, I drive only realistically, and 99,9% on EU#1, I feel some speed limit zones are way too short to be able to slow down for a few meters then have to get back to speed again, I'm not sure how close to reality these speed limits are, but its getting on my nerves, like I say, if a speed limit says 50kmh, I'll be at 50km/h quickly, but soon, back at 70kmh and a few seconds another zone of 50kmh is there, I'm probably the one that a lot of players hate cause I respect everything, even if I'm alone on the roads, I love realism, and its as close as I could get to driving a real truck which is somehting I can't do because I can't even have a driving license due to some problems with my eyes.

    Hot topic #8: 1.33 beta and release

    I can relate to the FPS drops, and can confirm its strictly linked to TruckersMP, I played 1.33 single player for 2 days yet and didn't have any FPS drops before MP was compatible. Now even 2-3 trucks in a city and I go down to 34-40fps max.

    What will be the first Map DLC in 2019?

    Spain, Portugal, going down would be nice, they could also add couple of cities to France DLC at the same time. Eventually they need to go down so we can go to Morocco like in Pro-Mods map.

    Hot topic #8: 1.33 beta and release

    Waiting for it to be supported in TruckersMP, so probably a week after Baltic DLC is out, I'm going to get Baltic DLC for sure eventually, sadly for me, it will take more time because of some money issues right now, would dream for a special early Christmas gift from someone to get it, but we can always dream, I don't think there's Secret Santa's reading this thread.

    Volvo VNL coming in a few weeks

    Its alive, its alive, now we will wait for TruckersMP to support them

    Do you have DLC Krone?

    I have it, but we can't really use it in MP because people that don't have it will see an ugly box with the word buy Krone DLC instead of our beautiful trailer, I say its a real bad move from TruckersMP team there.

    Gaining trucking experience [POLL]

    Been there and done that already, maybe I should try again, last time I tried was 18 yrs ago to be exact, maybe things have changed theses days, but having a passenger that does nothing on board would probably not be productive and may impact the fuel usage on the truck, I could probably offer my services as a PC tech support to the driver if he has a laptop or computer with him, but that's my limit, I'm also unsure if I could contract a personal insurance that would cover me as a passenger in a truck, but I'm willing to do it, to live my dream at least once. When I was a little kid, my mother tried to enroll me in a program that some company do give some rides for Autist persons (I'M Autist Asperger) but it didn't work cause at the last minute, I had to be hospitalized for a severe asthma attack, I must have been around 10 yrs old at this time, I had met the driver and all, and just the day before I was due to hit the road up to North Carolina with him, I was doomed to visit the hospital.

    Gaining trucking experience [POLL]

    For me, this game is my dream, I so much wanted to drive long haul trucks across USA, but sadly, when I turned 16 and wanted to get my driving licenses, I've learned that I would never be able to have a normal driving license for a car, let alone a truck driving license, it turns out my eyes and vision aren't good enough to let me drive a car or a truck, I could have a car driving license, but it would have so many restrictions on it, I could only drive when its a rainy or cloudy day, cause the sun can totally blind me out even with good sunglasses, and I would be prohibited to drive at night because the lights of the cars would have same effect for me at night, it would be dangerous. So I gave up on my dream, wish that at least once, I could be a passenger in a truck for a long haul drive across USA, but sadly, I don't think its possible anymore, they run in teams of drivers or solo. I have a uncle that drives a truck, but his new company doesn't allow passengers on board, plus he does extremely boring runs through forest areas. I'm very lucky to be far from blind, I can do everything normally, but not drive a car or truck in real life, I only have 70% of my right eye vision and 30% of my left eye, and its not something that can be repaired or improved with surgery of any kind sadly, I was born with cataracts in 1980, and they were only discovered when I was 3 yrs old.

    This is why ATS should only have 1 server

    I prefer US server, people seems to be more friendly there and they have respect for the road rules and speed limits, and the ping is much better for me, around 60ms compared to 130-150ms on EU server.

    Its called a Truck Simulator after all, if you need to go down at 140kmh and you think this game is a racing game, get out of there and let the people who enjoy realism and simulation enjoy it the way it should, I never touched my trailer stability ever and didn't find it any different from before, oh yeah, perhaps its because I'm careful everywhere and the idea of taking a curb at 140kmh never crossed my mind, there's speed limits near most of the curbs, stick to them and you should be fine.

    Popular Route in ATS?

    Its insane in Oregon right now, but at least for now, people respect the other players and respect the ones that stick to real road rules and speed limits, its nothing close to C to D road which is a trolls/idiots fest that are just there to cause wrecks and record it for youtube or twitch.
