  1. Well yes they do have a bit more do to. But not a whole lot. And yes there is not a whole lot of Denmark in there. But i live in Denmark and it is not very big. And with the scaling SCS has for the map its hard to do much more with Denmark, without it being very cramped. But we probably wont get much more of Russia. Since the part of Russia that is already in there is the part that is sort of considered part of Europe. I would think the same will be the case for Turkey when that comes in the next dlc. There is of cause Croatia and Greece and all that but some of that has some very crazy history with wars. That can still be felt in those areas. So SCS might not run out of DLC now but they will long before ATS does
  2. Not a bad idea. Thank you, i will take that on further. But OT: i think one of the reasons is that people just arent that much into simulation. Now we have arcade for that but people just dont really care. They wanna drive where all the people are no matter if some people dont like it. And people just wanna drive fast. I dont know why tho. If you sit down playing trucking for lets say 3 hours. Why does it matter if you end up doing 5 jobs instead of 6 or 7 jobs, because you drive 90 instead of 110? People say it gets boring driving 90. But is 20km/h really that big a difference? Im am not sure i get it. Either way i mostly drive 90km/h because i usually do WoT jobs .
  3. Hmm thats a hard one. But it has to be one of the Renaults. They are such good trucks. Hard working with small engines
  4. You are right about the fact that ETS2 has more content that ATS atm. But that is not always gonna be true. ETS2 is running out of content. We have the new DLC coming out with a few countries like croatia and all that. But after that they are running out of map DLC. They of cause have Spain/Portugal left and they could do Ireland but then we are about out of map DLC to make for Europe. And other content? I dont know. Where as ATS still has like 30 states to make, and they have a good deal of truck brands left too. At some point ATS will have much more content and a bigger map than ETS2, but we are not there yet. So until we are at that point, ETS2 will just be the more popular game. And with new people coming to join MP they will look at the server list and go: So 200 people on ATS and 4000 on ETS2, and then they will choose ETS2. But when ATS surpasses ETS2 in content i am sure thats gonna change.
  5. When this happens to me. Which is dosent do very often. But if it does i just make a report in game of myself And then i can watch that report of my self and catch the rammer that way (since i am a moderator). In your case you of cause cant watch the report yourself but you can still report yourself in a case like that. And a moderator might be around to watch it. This of cause wont help with a web report but it at least helps a little.
  6. So my favourite truck must either be this: Or Either the Volvo or the scania. But i think i will have to go with the Renault. I have always been a fan of the Renaults Its such a good truck. And its nice to drive
  7. This sort of thing is allowed. But i depends on the trailer and the cargo used. And i dont see a problem with editing the weight, since most people cant see how much you weigh anyway or dosent know how much something is supposed to weight. Just as long as you follow the rules and dont set it to be under 0 tonne. I myself have never edited cargo and weights, but i have done engine swaps
  8. Yeah i have about 20000 mp3 and FLAC songs on my pc. So i run WInamp all the time. I am not much of a radio listener. I like to be able to choose the music i listen to myself. But yes i listen to a lot of music, all day long
  9. Should be very interesting. I just hope that the version of Promods we get isent full of bugs. I cant count how many times i have driven into an area just to fall though the map in promods. Or road textures coming flying out of the road and stuff. Promods might get work done quick and make nice looking maps. But they dont have the bug testing and perfection SCS has. So i am glad i am not on the support team Kappa But jokes aside. If this actually works well and i am sure it does, (or else we wouldent implement it i am sure) this should be a super edition, that i am really looking forward to.
  10. MrSirViking? Hmm well.. Actually i used to have Lost-Viking long before i got MrSirViking. I got that name Because i liked vikings and i used to play a game called The Lost Vikings on Amiga 500, so i sort of became lost-viking. Then i once had to make a username somewhere and i wasent allowed to use _ or - and i felt LostViking wasent as good. So i had a friend called SirCrumbles and i sort of liked the Sir part. And i still wanted my Viking part. So i added a Mr to the Sir part to make it more special and to make sure less people had it so it would be easier to use on more sites and so i became MrSirViking. The Viking part is because i am Danish and we have a huge part of our history revolve around Vikings.
  11. I already commented on this in another thread about this but ill write it here too: The main reason this is not happening at the moment (i think) is that it would need a super computer server to run it. Cause every single AI car would have to be synchronized so that means if there is 4000 people on and each person has lets say 5 AI cars or trucks around them that would be 20000 AI cars and trucks that the server would have to calculate all the time. In SP, the area you drive in is the only area that is loaded in game. And the x amount of AI traffic around you is only around where you are. So your computer only has to render in the area you are in with AI traffic in the area you are in. I think the MP server loads everything all the time (correct me if i am wrong). And it would have to load and calculate the movement of 20000 AI cars and trucks all the time. Not only that but trolls could get a whole lot of fun out of the AI traffic. Cause lets say a troll decides to block the road. Not only do you have normal players that gets blocked but also AI traffic. This could cause HUGE line ups of AI traffic and players and it could be a huge mess. Not only that but if they behave like normal AI traffic does in SP that means every AI truck or car will stop instantly as soon as you are close to them. Like if you swerve close to an AI traffic they just stop. That could also cause major problems for people around you. Since someone could just swerve close to an AI car and make it stop so someone would ram into that car or truck. AI traffic is just a bad idea in general unless you have small servers with like 10-20 people max that then drive around with AI traffic on private like servers. Other than that its just a huge problem.
  12. Thank you Now i would hope that if something like this ever comes, that there would be a sort of thing in place where if there is a certain amount of trucks around no AI will spawn. Cause as you say CD road would just be one long grid lock if you have 200 trucks and then 1000 AI traffic on that road too. So in that case no AI traffic would spawn. But that would still mean that there would be a huge amount of AI traffic the server had to calculate somewhere else. But yeah maybe with 500 people on it could work. That would only be 2500 AI Traffic. But i still think that is a lot. Cause the server might have 4000 people on. But they are all mostly normal humans driving their own truck. So the server dosent have to calculate the movement of those trucks and cars. Cause i am the one driving my own truck or car. Where as with the AI traffic the server would be driving all those i think. I might be wrong on all this, but that was my thought.

  14. I have all of them. And they are all fully upgraded. And i have all of the drivers i can have. You can own and fully upgrade all garages, but you cant fill them all with drivers. There is a limit to how many drivers you can have. So i just have the limit.
  15. So i actually played the first ETS. Still got save games from that on my PC. I saw an ad for the game somewhere and decided that should give it a go. I liked driving around in a truck. My uncle is a retired truck driver so i always found trucks interesting. But then i realized at some point in like i dont know 2013 that there was a ETS2 out so i got that on hard copy from a local game store. Then in 2014 i saw someone playing ETS2 MP on Twitch and then i wanted it on steam so i could play MP. Diddent realize that you could just put in your hard copy cd key and get it on steam. So i bought another copy that included Going East off steam, and i have been playing and adding dlc ever since. Its a super game to just play when you want to relax and listen to music. It de stresses you.
