    Your favorite paint job/color combination

    I usually make mine use Richard Petty's old NASCAR colors (from way back when NASCAR was still worth a damn) Turns out looking pretty nice on a truck Alternatively I'll sometimes use Jimmy Clark's Formula 1/Indycar theme

    What do you do when you see a crash?

    For the most part as long as you follow the truck speed limit, or slower when there is a traffic jam... you'll get through that area fine. It is just a combination of impatience and not watching your surroundings that will make you take damage there. There is, of course, the annoying exception of people who ram on purpose. Also very important to leave at least one complete truck-and-trailer length between you and a truck in front of you, even if you are fully stopped.... or else you might end up getting lag-wrecked.

    ETS 1.32 UPDATE

    Yeah I told my friends to expect it to be 3 to 6 weeks. This speedy update was a pleasant surprise. Great job TruckersMP devs!!!!!

    Ideea for c-d

    Meh, I don't mind the traffic. All you need to do is be patient. You can also push M to open the map and re-route your GPS around it.

    Delete ramps on toll?

    I really don't mind stopping at the tolls, even with heavy cargo. They also help to keep speeds in check somewhat.

    What do you do when you see a crash?

    It really depends on circumstances. Step 1 is to always brake and hold your line. After that, you hopefully will be at the needed speed to make a calculated maneuver around the crash, if needed. Basically I use racing logic for it. I only switch lanes if it is necessary. Sometimes I'll use the grass if there is no obstructions there.

    Will the speed limit of 150km / h be removed?

    I personally think the speed limit only reduces single truck accidents primarily. Generally there is not a whole lot of situations where it would cause accidents with innocent drivers. More than likely two drivers that are both speeding anyway. So who cares if they crash? That being said, it's not that big of an issue with me. While I do like to speed when I am not around other drivers... there is not a ton of opportunities to go beyond that speed safely anyway. But if they wanted to get rid of a lot of complaints I think making it 153 to 160 km/h would be fast enough to reduce complaints, while at the same time not being a significant increase.

    Why does almost everyone speed hack but nothing is done about it?

    Is there not a way to prevent the multiplayer mod from accepting login requests from clients who have edited versions of these files?

    Speed Limit Aftermath and Scania R730

    Hmmm I might just not have noticed it because I usually don't go beyond 90MPH. That's generally what I set my cruise control to when I'm traveling without a load. Then with a load I usually do 75 or 80 outside of cities. I don't really see those speeds as dangerous. It is the other drivers that might make it dangerous, but how safe or dangerous it is to overtake them... well that's in your own hands, as it should be. I'm generally pretty careful whenever I'm coming up on traffic, usually I try to only overtake at +5MPH or so... but it doesn't bother me much if other people aren't. Usually people go crashing around me instead of into me, as I'm safely avoiding them. If they don't look safe (judging by their driving style as I am behind them), I don't try overtaking them. If I see someone coming up on me I move half way into the shoulder and signal them by. I don't see why there needs to be much forced babysitting. We have the reporting system and assuming enough people are hired for the job, that should be good enough to catch the super reckless drivers.

    do you think they will do ETS3? And how will it be in your opinion?

    I would definitely expect an ETS3 in the distant future. But for the next several years, at least.... I see no point. Seems the developers don't, either. ETS2 is being expanded on greatly still and there is just no reason for an ETS 3 yet. Also IMO, seems the next big truck game from SCS would likely be based more on a worldwide scale instead of them having to go through the trouble of separating North America from Europe/Asia. I kind of doubt they would want to have two separate games like they do today. So before a new game I think also we will have to wait for the evolution of ATS to be complete.

    Speed Limit Aftermath and Scania R730

    Is there a non-speed limit server? I haven't played in a couple of months. However I don't want to play multiplayer if I'm forced to a speed limit at all times. SOME of us can actually drive safely without wrecking others while speeding. There should always be a server where this is an option. Otherwise it's a failure in my book. We already have to go the speed limit for the "online" hauls anyway. Taking options away completely is never a good move.

    Inactiveness in ATSMP

    Part of the problem is that there is very few quality manufacturers in the US for both big rigs and passenger vehicles alike.... in fact even though I am American I can't think of more than one or two vehicles produced by a US company, car truck or big rig, that I'd want to waste my money on. So anyway they are likely having problems finding many attractive US brands to put into the game. Probably will end up having to just bring the European/Asian companies in.... which is what I think they should have done to begin with.

    [Poll] Bring back the old Winter Mod

    I don't like the way the falling snow looks (it seems to fall in unnatural looking "clusters" sometimes) so I turned it off. I also desire it to effect road physics and make them more slick. That being said the winter mod itself is vastly improved over previous years.

    Should the game bring innovation to its own map?

    I actually think this should be their next focus. But, while I support most of their paid DLC.... I think such an update should be free, since a lot of the assets and prefabs are already there and they would just need to do some touch ups and bring some of the roads and scenery up to current standards. Plus gating it with DLC would be an absolute mess I think, since then you'd have two layers of the same map in the same places depending on if you own the DLC or not. This is one case where I think extra profits (assuming there is any) left over from the DLC should be applied to a free map update. I'm not against paid DLC, I own two dozen of them for ETS2.... but yeah I just don't see revamping the base map to be something that would even be plausible as paid DLC.

    Concerns regarding the Special Transport DLC

    Instead of not including the DLC in MP, they could just hire more admins. I'm actually surprised that's not one of the positions they are listing as "opened" since there needs to be many more than they have now even without this DLC. Not like there is labor costs to worry about or anything. As for not being able to overtake wide loads..... what's so wrong with just following them and not passing them at all, until there is enough space? You don't need to overtake someone the very moment you get behind them. I don't see that part of an issue what so ever. Just cruise control at their speed until you can safely get by.
