      Server Downtime   01/04/18

      Hello Truckers! In response to recent developments with certain processor exploits We will be shutting down US1 / AS1 / SA1 until we get confirmation from the datacenters that the shared physical servers that these are hosted on have been patched. While at this time we are not aware of any active attacks against our users, we take security extremely seriously and do not want to risk any chances as they are on hardware shared with other customers of whom we do not know. You may also notice the website being unavailable for a few moments over the next few days. This is due to our datacenter provider patching our fleet of 30 servers. We apologize for any frustrations this may cause, however know this is a very important step that is required to secure our users data. Thank you for your understanding.   Forum thread Homepage blog post

  1. What recording program do you guys use?

    Windows Game DVR. It is straightforward and produces a good quality video.
  2. Partially agree with what you said. And I suspect that within the team there are divided opinions regarding this issue. Also there are players in the MP that tend to play as a GTA V like environment, and others that play the game as it is intended. In the community there are voices that will always like "/fix", no speed limits, cars, and maybe one day they might want a self driving truck so they do not have to do anything or damage the goods, rather than play the game! This is a simulation game and the MP should be an ONLINE SIMULATION ENVIRONMENT. I really reject any ideas that gradually transform this MOD into a very different concept from what the original ETS2 is in reality: simulator.
  3. Advocates of "/fix" should know that there is EU4, where they don't even have to type the command.

      Same thing with "remove skodas" there is EU1 :)

      Try doing World of Trucks jobs... Even worse than your description. It's like giving guns to trolls while forbidding them to some users.

      I can buy a gun legally so your comparison is garbage..the /fix command is no different than the no damage mod.You have a choice to use it..

      @Graywolf71 Maybe you can, but in most countries, we can't. And it is different, no-damage mod, I could use and avoid damage from trolls while doing my WoT jobs, /fix command, I can't because it doesn't work with those jobs.

  5. [VOTE] Do you think /fix command is useful ?

    I am going to paste here the same comment I did yesterday on a different topic regarding this command: The command benefits much more those o break the rules than the players who see this game as (and clue is in the title of the game itself) a simulator. It is fairly easy to get a lot of money in the game, so repairs are not a problem for the vast majority of players in ETS2MP. It does not bother me to press F7 at all. It does not bother me to pay for the damage or to have damaged cargo. It is part of the game (and the simulation) and I accept it. What bothers me, and the vast majority of players, are those that break the rules (trolls, hackers, abusers, etc) ruining others gaming experience. Having a quick fix is not going to improve my experience on the road. The trolls are still there creating a carnage. If I use "/fix", so do the others, including trolls. The truck/trailer gets repaired but the nuisance is still there for us! I can give you the example of what just happened a few moments ago: I was chased for no reason by 2 kids on cars that kept ramming at me one at a time for a few Kms. I used the command and so did they! They kept being a nuisance for Kms, repairing their cars and hitting me continuously. I recorded what they did and will report on the website. As you can see this benefited much more the trolls than me, who kept annoying me for several minutes in a row. Reporting them might result in punishment, but my point with this is: this command will empower trolls increasing their nuisance to others who see this game as it is, a simulation. I will not have a broken truck/cargo or have to press F7, but will have to endure the painful experience of being trolled and abused for minutes after minutes by disrespectful people who now have a legal tool to quick fix their car/truck on the road and continue the abuse. I do not know if the team will keep this command with some changes in its use, but overall in my opinion I disagree with its existence in the game.
  6. Good evening First, I would like to say that I do value the efforts of the team to run this amazing MOD. They really do a fantastic job with this little extra to our copies of ETS2. However, on this occasion with regards to the "/fix" command, I believe it is not a good decision at all, and it is absolutely negative for the multiplayer game. I am sure the command was introduced with good intentions, but it will not contribute to a positive experience to the vast majority of players. The command benefits much more those o break the rules than the players who see this game as (and clue is in the title of the game itself) a simulator. It is fairly easy to get a lot of money in the game, so repairs are not a problem for the vast majority of players in ETS2MP. It does not bother me to press F7 at all.

  7. Suggestion Name: Prioritize In Game Reports reviewed by location Suggestion Description: Allow Game Moderators to review the in-game reports from a specific zone within the map, prioritizing (or excluding) certain zones from where the reports originate. Any example images: No. Why should it be added?: Assigning a GM to just review in game reports from a certain location rather them globally, would create a more practical and efficient in game report system. There are certain zones within the map that produce a massive amount of reports (lets say Calais/Duisburg or Belgium), while others more remote have a low amount of reports. The fact the a GM could be assigned to review in game reports just from the UK, or Italy, or any other zone within the map, would allow for a more efficient distribution of the GM attention to the whole map, as certain zones produce huge amounts of reports that can not be dealt by GM. This would re-direct the efforts of GM to the whole map, by distributing them to review reports effectively. ---- NOTE: I do not know how the in game report works or if my suggestion is feasible. I assume GM have a global list of in game reports to deal. Due to the fact that congested zones produce massive amounts of those reports, that leaves the system congested itself. If more than one GM are online, they could be distributed in the map to look just at in game reports for those zones. That would increase the response from the GM within areas that are not congested, rather than having an in-game report from Italy waiting in line with thousands made in Calais. By having a local GM that is just receiving reports for that given zone, with would fast track the review of that report. I am not sure if I was clear with my suggestion, and I apologize for the long text or if the idea is just silly, as I do not know exactly how the system works. Many thanks
  8. Issues with radio

    I assume you are inquiring about the radio channels (and not CB channels). Some of the links for the radios may become inactive and you stop receiving. You can create your own radio list with the radios you prefer, using a simple tool like Radio Trucker. Then, you download your list from the website, and replace the file "live_streams.sii" on ETS2 folder located on your Documents.
  9. CB Radio can be a torture! :(

  10. Game Moderator Public Recruitment

    Oh well...I would like to, but I do not meet this one "Member for at least 1 year"...
  11. Do you guys record your drivings?

    I use software to record every game session. If I need to report someone, I use a clip from the session. I believe it is the best way to report those that break the rules, as the in game report tool is not effective.
  12. Good tip. However F7 can sort the things out...
  13. Long, Medium or Short drives?

    Prefer to do several medium journeys than a long one. Just to have a break...
  14. Your opinions on In-game Reports?

    In-game reports are a convenient tool, but in my opinion is not operational at the moment. I do use it sometimes, but I suspect that there are too many reports in-game for the game moderators to deal with promptly. The result is a report not being dealt with, and the perpetrator gets away with it. Therefore, I tend to record and submit the evidence via website. It takes a couple of days, but results in something. The in-game reports, in my case are 0% effective, as they are not dealt with apparently. I do believe that more staff would be needed to look into the reports for the in-game tool to be effective.
