    How do i play with my friend

    if you are friends on steam, it will show your friend as a green dot on the map vs people you don't know who will show up as blue. to get the same trailer, you can paint an owned trailer to match theirs, and both take jobs from the cargo market, there is also the alternative of taking a world of trucks cargo to the same city, usually they are the same load, which will result in the same trailer. you don't need to join a VTC ( virtual trucking company) to drive with your friend.

    Remove speed limits from EU#4 server.

    as i said when people were complaining about the limiter not being removed from EU2 that if a suggestion for removing it from EU4 was made I would support it. well the suggestion has been made and I support it. +5.8 billion

    Why are the only few users playing ATSMP?

    @Nicoduivel the t680 and the 579 do have similar interiors, but if you use both the trucks gps and the navigation window, you will notice that the navigation window will cover the gps in the 579 making it harder to see, however in the t680 you can still see most of the trucks gps. that is why I only have the 389 which stil suffers from the same issue the 579 does.
  4. the strangest thing I have scene involving a trailer in MP was a trailer flying over my head when I was entering the job site to pick my trailer up. the person whose trailer flew over me had to pick theirs up 2 blocks away from the site.
  5. both states have their uniqueness. but I am partial to Oregon due being born and raised there. they did a good job at capturing the essence of Oregon and its major cities. Portland looks very close to what it does in real life.

    Why are the only few users playing ATSMP?

    @Nicoduivel the reason the t680 and the 579 sound the same is because they actually use the same engines, both made by Paccar. as for the W900 being loud, that is from the combination of the CAT engine and it being a turbo diesel engine. IMO the Volvo is just as loud, when accelerating, as the W900. I do agree that the 389 has a small separated windshield, but it is fairly easy to look past it, you just have to spend time driving it. a side note is that both the W900 and the 389 have a hood orimate that you can use to stay in the lane. which is a good thing for new players. @OP what most everyone has said is a fair assessment, truck variants ETS has more truck models then ATS, and 5 map expansion dlcs vs ATS's 3 paid and 1 free. the base game map is bigger then ATS. but as @Zakxaev68 has said, ATS has jobs that can be more challenging then almost all of the jobs in ETS base game and in Scandinavia.

    EU & US server should get merged

    I have to disagree with your suggestion. reasons are: 1. there are people who, like me, have only 1 ISP in their town. and connecting to any of the EU servers get an average 200-300ms ping with spikes well over 1k. hitting that is an instant kick for high ping. 2. ATS rarely has a mod on the server at least for the US server, which for the most part is a fairly user friendly server. I have seen incidents of the trolls on the EU ATS server. 3. there are people from South America that connect to the US server. moving the server to the EU would, for a fair amount players from there to be told you can no longer play MP. you may also want to note this has been suggested before. I will point you to this topic.

    Changes to the bans system

    with what I just quoted from you. would result in 2 separate bans. you may not think it is fair, the person who broke the rules may think its not fair but at the end of the day, the person broke 2 rules in separate incidents. if the moderator wants to, they can give them 1 long ban combining both incidents or he can issue 2 separate bans, treating them as separate incidents. as for your suggestion I will have to give it a -1. IMO there is no reason to change the ban system itself. as for changing the way it works on a per report day, that might be a different story, and would suit your suggestion better. @Joao Rodrigues the only reports I have done in the whole time I have been here have been done in game. so as for what would and wouldn't be accepted, I wouldn't know. thank you for letting me know though about that

    Changes to the bans system

    the mods look at all the evidence. if they see more then what you are reporting they can at their own accord increase the ban length. here is my opinion on someone trying to report a person twice for the same incident that you are talking about. if the person sends in the same video/evidence that they posted with the previous report, they themselves should receive a ban for abusing the system.

    Speed Limit Suggestion

    @TurklerRS that is nice of you to point out one instance of a conversion. since you are being so helpful, are going to convert what 80 KPH, 90 KPH or even what 50 KPH is? those figures are used more often then the 150 KPH is. since you seem to be such a helpful person. others can benefit from your knowledge of the metric to imperial conversions.

    Speed Limit Suggestion

    interesting read. small basket case states? so if I am understanding you right, 1 state out of the 50, plus the 3 other countries (that I personally know of that use the imperial system) is a basket case? we do use metric in very small cases. that being some of the tools we use such as socket wrenches use metric for some sockets and imperial for others. getting the states to change to metric wont be any easier then convincing the brits to join us "normal" people and drive on the correct side of the road, that being the right hand side of the road. as for the convenient to have converted values for the readers you talk about, it works both ways. there are a fair amount of European readers who use the imperial system on top of the American users who play ATS and ETS. so for convenience sake, the reverse should also be applied. anyone who post metric should also post the imperial conversion. just like you said, for user convenience.

    Speed Limit Suggestion

    you can speed irl and if you are caught going more then the posted speed limit, you will receive a punishment, ranging from a simple speeding ticket, to a night in jail. and there are a lot of people who play racing games online, just so they can put the pedal to the metal. for normal people? so people who use the imperial system for measurement are not normal? I know that 93 mph is 150 KMP. you will most likely ask, since I know that 93 mph is 150 KPH then why am I posting in mph. it is simple and the answer is listed next to my location. how did figure out the conversion, that is simple as well, I used a converter. if people don't know the conversion from imperial to metric, there are plenty of converters online.

    Speed Limit Suggestion

    @Erik0301 the problem with what you are saying is easy is, if you remove the limiter for the car (reskinned truck) you remove it for trucks. if you set the limiter to 80 mph for trucks it will be applied to the cars (reskinned trucks).. the way it is now, with a 93 mph max speed limiter. the game is fine. if people don't like the 93 mph max speed limit, they can play SP or play an actual racing game.

    Should Truckersmp disable the speedlimiter?

    @Erik0301 yes trucks IRL can reach and maintain 80 mph, it takes them a good while to get there, but they can do it. as for your suggestion to remove the limiter from the cars. that isn't a very good Idea and for the games purpose, the car is a reskinned truck. as for what @Joao Rodrigues has suggested, for a 50 mph speed limit on small country 2 lane highways and 30 mph in cities. that is a +1 from me

    removal of the limiter on ats

    the funny thing is, the speed limiter for non city highways is set to 100 mph, and 55 for in city highways. which is higher then the ETS global limiters for both city and highway. and what I posted earlier in this topic if they can move the city limits limiter off of the highways that go near cities such as highway that passes through elko then I would be all for it. but I believe that will be more work then it would be worth so we can just live with the speed limits on the short stretches of highway that goes through the cities.
