  1. As a Game Moderator i have to be recording when i drive around. In case something happens where i need to ban someone i always need to have the evidence. And when doing in game reports i also need to record the evidence when i ban people. I use OBS to record things. It works well since in case you are streaming it can still save clips of what you are recording. Its pretty nice.
  2. This ^ is a good way of doing that. Dont ever try and ram them out of the way or use ghost mode to get past them, Just cause they are doing something wrong dosent mean you can do it too, to fix it. Two wrongs dosent make a right. If there is lots of oncoming traffic i wouldent go about overtaking them either to get past them cause you might hit oncoming traffic and that will be your fault. All you can do is wait for them to move or get moved or log out and go to single player to get past them. And of cause record and report them. If you record them and them report them on the website you can be sure a moderator will look at it and take action if needed.
  3. Must be the "new" Mercedes. Its not that i dislike it. I just like it less that all the other trucks. Funny enough i really like the Ivecos And Renaults
  4. I had played 18 wheels of steel at some point and then i got ETS 1 and then ETS 2. Then in late 2014 i saw someone playing MP on twitch. So i had to make a TMP profile and check it out. So here i am, many years later.
  5. Now i cant say this for sure. But i really dont think we would ever see an increase of speed on the normal servers. As said above you can always go to the Arcade servers to drive 150km/. But on the normal servers i really dont think it will increase. I even think it should be lowered. 110km/h causes enough accidents as it is. I really liked it when the limit was 90km/h back in the day. But i dont think that is gonna happen either. And more cars to drive? As also said earlier, this is a truck simulator. You should be glad we even have the scout But who know what the future brings.
  6. If there is no one coming from the sides that has green i tend to just go through red lights. If there is other people around that has green i always stop. and even if i have green and there is other people around i always check that they are stopping so i dont get hit.
  7. As far as i heard its on standby for the moment. The problem is that SCS does changes to the AI with every little update. So as long as they keep doing that its not worth it to put out a server where a few people can drive with AI, simply cause it would be way too much work having to update it all the time just cause they do changes to the AI. So until SCS has settled on how they want AI to work the driving with AI in MP is on standby as far as i know.
  8. Gotta make sure you are actually on the server too. If you are in a city with lets say 60km/h limit and you are kicked for being AFK or for some other reason, the 60km/h will stay on until you restart your game. Since the Limit it set by the server and you are then kicked the server cant give you a new limit when you leave a city or a lower speed limit area so you are stuck with the one you have atm. So are you sure you havent been kicked those times for lets say AFK?
  9. Now i cant remember the exact explanation for this but what you gotta remember is that you cant move the things in Duisburg too much. Cause if you move things around too much then they will be too out of line to where they normally are. That causes problems with World Of Trucks jobs. Since your position is checked all the time in that you would not be able to get into most of these places since you would be "out of map". Not only that but you probably wouldent be able to get World Of Trucks jobs to Duisburg. And that is a problem. It might even make World Of Trucks jobs not work at all to anywhere. So we cant change too much. Which is why moving companies and roads around too much causes problems. Also why World Of Trucks jobs dosent work on Promods
  10. -I think the driving performance of the truck seems real enough. At least from the experience i have from being in a truck. -1:1 map? That would actually be impossible. Well if they only did the roads they have now, and then just extended them so they would be as long to drive as in real life, then maybe it would be possible. But the amount of time they would need to put in houses and grass and scenery would be insane. Something like Microsoft Flight Simulator gets away with it since they really have no detail on ground. Only on airports. If you fly close to the ground there is no real landmarks. Its just randomly generate trees and "grass". Where as in ETS2 and ATS, there is all sorts of scenery on ground since there has to be. And they have tried to make that as realistic as possible. So for them to have to create roads where its 1:1 with the map they have, would take a very very long time. Might almost be impossible. -Well from what i know the sounds seems realistic enough. Yes there might be a sound or two they can still get in there, but with 1.37 and the new sound system that might actually come in the future. -Well they do have more than that in there. But the main reason why they dont have more in the game is because of licensing. If they had to get every single real company in game it would take till the end of time of the universe to get those licenses for those companies. It is incredible tedious work to acquire licenses for these. Which is also why it takes so long to get a new truck in ATS and ETS2. I am sure they would love to have all those companies in there, its just not worth the years and years of time that would be spent on it. -Well sure, i can agree on the economic things here. But i think the main reason for this is simply because they dont want people to spent 100 hours just to be able to buy your own truck. And then spent another 100 hours to buy a second truck for a driver. Its made this way to be more including for everyone. Just so you dont have to spent an eternity before you can buy your own truck. And if you do play MP you will be earning a lot more money since the game passes a lot of time when ever you go on MP so when ever you sleep or fast travel or what ever it will give you a lot of money from the drivers you have. It wont if you just play SP. -So the reason for no realistic damage models on trucks, is again because of licensing. If they had told Mercedes or Volvo or what ever that the truck they would license off to SCS could be smashed into pieces then they would not allow SCS to get that license for that truck. Its a matter of image. They dont want people driving around in their truck brand smashing up the truck. I am sure SCS would love to include it, they are simply not allowed to do it. So i think this is a simulation. As best as it can be with what SCS can do. They are at least trying to make it as good of a simulator as it can be.
  11. Alright! That event on saturday has been planned and worked on LOOOOOONG before 1.37 was even a thing. Why was it held last Saturday? Because it was ready. It has nothing to do with why 1.37 isent ready yet. And not only that, its different people who are working on Real Ops compared to 1.37. So even if this big event had not been there last Saturday you would still have had to wait just as long for 1.37 anyway. As far as i know Real Ops would have worked just fine under 1.37. So real op has nothing to do with you waiting for 1.37. And its nothing new to wait this long for an update. I Think we waited just as long when 1.36 came out since that was the one that changed everything from DX 9 to DX 11. These big updates just takes a long long time to get working since they always have major changes to the game. You also complain that you get no information on when its ready. Well what do you want? Some staff member coming on to the forums and saying "We know you are all waiting but its not ready yet and we dont know when it will be" every day? Cause thats all the information you can get atm. I dont even think our developers can give an estimate on when its finished. Because lets say they came out and said it should be ready on Monday. And then Sunday they discover new bugs so then they have to say alright it will be ready Thursday! But then they fix the bugs and they discover new ones. So it has to be postponed again. That is why they dont give a date. And just say it will be ready when its ready. And whats the problem? Just downgrade to 1.36 and play MP anyway.. Yes you might not be able to roll down your window or use the new volvo tuning pack but you can still play MP just like you did before. And this is a totally free MP mod. No one says you have to play it. If you want to play 1.37 you can play single player. What would you do if MP was shut down by lets say SCS tomorrow? Dont complain. You get a free MP where you only have to install a few files and then you can drive with your friends for free. If you think its so bad to wait, then lets see you make a free MP for everyone. Maybe then you can see why it takes so long to update. You should be grateful that this even exists for you to play. You have been waiting for a month. Its not that bad. Just go and play MP and then be happy when the new update releases
  12. And also the fact that a lot of countries are letting people go back to almost normal again in these corona virus times, means that there is less people playing since people have got back to work or something else. And as others said with 1.37 not supported that also keeps some people from not playing.
  13. So as said above: If you lets say get a 1000hp engine for your truck in SP and then start MP that mod will be disabled by us and your truck will be given a default engine instead. So lets say you made a mod that put the scania engine in the Renault. If you buy that truck in SP and then open MP that truck will still be there with the scania engine since the scania engine is a standard truck engine in game. And MP only recognizes things that are in game originally. So if you add anything like lets say a 1000hp engine or modify a game file to give you faster acceleration it wont work in MP since its not originally from the game. There is of cause things in game that are not originally there, like the scout car modification. But that is put in my us so you can drive it. So the only way to get an engine mod that is not originally in game is to have MP add it so everyone can use it. And i really really dont think we are gonna do that ever.
  14. I played the ATS 1.37 SP and i LOVE the new MACK truck. And opening the windows is cool but pretty useless. Not sure why they made that but i guess its cool. I liked the new sounds. So all in all its a pretty good update. I am sure ETS2 is gonna be the same.
  15. But this can still hit players that shouldent be hit by it. As said earlier, people will find ways of miss using that system. So players that has just started the game and has 0 money gets fined a lot of money because someone found a way to cheat the system. We cant have automated systems like that. Cause people are always gonna find ways to miss use it. Like even if we have an auto kick for something people still find ways to get around it. There is a reason why we have a permanent ban if you are caught getting around the auto kicks. So even a system that kicks someone for multiple rammings or something wouldent be a good idea cause people will always find a way to cheat it. And a system like that would be a huge and complicated system that would take a very long time to make, just for someone to find a way to cheat it. Which is why almost everything to do with kicks and bans is done by moderators. Simply to make sure everything is done right. And someone said that a kick is nothing so it wouldent be that bad. But if you forget your headlights or get kicked for AFK timer, then thats your own fault. But if you get kicked because someone found a way to cheat the system and 10 trolls does this to you, then its not a little thing any more. And in the end a system like that could just get us moderators even more work, cause then the trolls will be reported for cheating the system. It would be a mess. Easiest way to avoid the rammers and trolls is to not drive near duisburg and calais and the road between them.
