  1. Sure we had monopoly but that does not mean people have to play online. If they hate RTS so much then just dont play. As i said there are plenty of other games, like right now steam has more than 50000 games. So no one is forcing anyone to play TMP. If they choose to play here anyway then maybe RTS is not as bad as some people make it. At least not bad enough that people dont want to play. No i dont wonder about that stuff. We are a multiplayer mod. We are not a company that needs to make money. If we dont get enough donations to keep servers running then we just close. We dont get paid to do this. So its not something that has to keep going. And so if we loose a few people over something, its not the end of the world, so i dont wonder too much about the numbers. Well because management change. Different people want different things. And also because we do listen to the community. And so after some community polls we changed some things. Things might have been a little too harsh and so things where changed. That doesent mean that RTS was not successful, just that we also do listen.
  2. But even with RTS people still played this game when they all of a sudden had a lot of free time cause of Covid. There are plenty of other games to play but people still chose to play TMP even with RTS. Which shows that RTS did not matter that much to people when they all of a sudden had extra time on their hands. People tend to complain a lot about things when they dont need them. And when they suddenly do there isent a lot of complaining any more. RTS was not a problem as long as you kept to the rules. Which isent that had. There is quite a lot of people who has been here since 2014, that has never been banned. And so if you get banned you broke the rules and should maybe consider how you are driving. And what i meant was that we are back to normal numbers considering that SCS Convoy is a thing as well. So all in all i think things are going well.
  3. Well we have relaxed a bit on the ban lengths and you no longer get permanently banned if you have 6 bans within a year and even ban evading is not a permanent ban any more. And so The ban lengths are more relaxed now than they where under RTS. Drove a lot of people away? A year after Road To Simulation was introduced we had the highest number of players playing at the same time that we have ever had. Almost two years after it was introduced we had the second highest number playing at the same time that we have ever had, It was not until convoy was introduced that we lost a bunch of players. Which makes sense. Convoy offers are more relaxed environment where you wont get rammed by random players from the CD road and it has AI traffic and it also offers you to use any mod you want. We cant do that atm. And so it does make sense that we lost some players to that. But to say that RTS drove a lot of players away is simply not really true. Usually the people who where mad with RTS, where the people who had a hard time following the rules. These days we have about the numbers we had before RTS. But we have never had as many people playing as we did during RTS.
  4. Its a game you say? What sort of game? First person shooter? no. Racing game? no. Fifa game? No. Ohhh Wait! There it was! Trucking Simulation Game. Simulation game! And what does a simulation game strive to do? Simulate the real thing. And so that is what we do or try to at least. Now you claim you that things where more relaxed before road to simulation. But that is not actually the case. The thing you got banned for would also have gotten you banned before road to simulation. Maybe not quite as long but it would still have gotten you banned, with the same reason. You endangered someone else by not making sure that there was no traffic before you went overtaking. The main reason why Road to simulation was introduced was to try and make this a better simulation experience and to try and calm the CD road a bit. Everyone could see it, 150km/h on the CD road caused chaos and the short ban times never did anything to stop people from braking the rules. And so we simply had to do something and so Road to simulation was introduced. Did it work? Yes to some degree, but we have also realized that some of it might have been too harsh and so toned some stuff down again, like ban lengths and such.
  5. When i first started ETS2 i choose London and in ATS i choose San Francisco.
  6. But you can only buy them in the steam market because someone is selling them. If no one was selling the one they had then you would not be able to get them. SCS is not selling them. And in regards to the achievement being visible? I dont know, maybe the devs just havent thought about it. And does it really matter that much?
  7. I want all current paint jobs to have a matching ownable trailer paint job. So for example there are pirate paint jobs where we see a pirate ship sailing after other ships, its like a sea battle. Would be cool if this battle continued onto the trailer with more ships and more battle. Or the space paint jobs would have more stars and planets on the trailer. Like just continuing all paint jobs on the trailers. I have wanted that for years.
  8. Cant really tell you about the process. As i dont know what questions you will be asked and what happens during training is that you get trained to be a moderator. Is it difficult? It can be. And we do quite a lot of reports, which is a lot of the work we do. Cant really tell you what a typical day looks like as there isent really one. Its not like when you show up to work in the morning and you do the same job every day. Some days you might not do anything as you have other real life things to do. And other days you do a lot of moderator work. There is no typical day. Being a moderator is not the glamorous thing some people think it is. Sure you get access to the police car but you dont really drive around in that a lot. And you really should not want to become a moderator because of the police car. And does it make it all more fun? Sometimes but i wouldent say it elevates Truckers MP to be super funny and much better than if you are just a normal player, as it is a lot of work and when driving in game you are always a moderator. And so yes you can just go driving like anyone else, but if something happens near you, you have to act on it. And so its never just a drive, there is always stuff to do.
  9. I always recommend to use the Website to report people. Always record your game and save recordings when something happens and then use that to report players on the website. Using the in game system is fine, but there is a chance that your report wont be seen and so it is always better to use the website to report people as those reports will be looked at.
  10. All of And sultans of swing of cause: And And there is probably more that i cant remember right now.
  11. Sorry to tell you this, but we do not aim to act cool or better than others. And if you slide and hit someone then you where probably driving to fast for where you where driving and so you crashed someone and ruined their gameplay. They did not ask for you to hit them. And so what you called accidents was caused by something you did. Often it has to do with speed. Driving too fast for a corner or something. Or maybe its you overtaking where you should not be doing so. Or maybe you did not keep enough distance to the person in front, Or something else. In most cases the accident was caused by something you did or failed to do. And so if you had maybe been more careful in your driving you might never have caused that accident. And yeah you get a ban for that kind of accident. But you know what? Learn from that accident, look at what happened and make sure it dosent happen again. And then that week ban will be the only ban you get. There are people here that has been here since we started Truckers MP that has never been banned. It is possible to drive on Truckers MP without causing accidents. Plenty of people do so. And calling it abuse because you got banned for causing an accident because of something you could have done differently and then avoided that accident, is simply wrong. We do not intend to abuse anything. We are not jerks that do this to feel better than others. We are just trying to make sure that the people who drive here can do so without having people crashing into them by accident or intentional.
  12. I have no idea. My guess is that adding back the 150km/h would lead to more accidents and so more reports and so more work for us as moderators. But we dont actually know if that will be the case. Its likely, but as a moderator its our job to deal with it and so we will just have to. Its what we signed up to. I agree. But its apparently what the community wants. And so we will have to see how it goes. Lets hope it does not end too bad, for everyones sake
  13. Yes Beacons especially affects other people. But i do think you can add beacons there. But the problem comes when you have too many beacons. Then they start to affect everyones FPS negatively. And So i do not suggest you put a lot of them. Yes which might be totally empty, so if you want to play with other people you would need to be in all the chaos of Sim 2. At least that is how i think it will end. It was how it was back in the day.
  14. No matter what some people think of us, we dont ban you for the fun of it. You have to have broken some rule in order to get a ban. Even if you think its something small, you still broke the rules or else you would not have gotten a ban. And as a moderator i have seen everything i would say. I dont know which one was the most crazy or funny, since i see a lot of evidences every week.
  15. As said earlier if you report from any of the highly populated areas your reports will be rated neutral. Calais, Duisburg, CD road, Kirkness and those areas fall under the neutral rating. So if your report come from one of those areas your report score wont go up. And so if you can submit 10 reports you will only still be able to submit 10 reports no matter how many accepted reports you have, as long as they are from one of the highly populated areas. If you get a negative rating, if your report was declined, your report score will go down. Until it reaches 0 and you can no longer report people.
