Pride Convoy 2020
The 2020 Pride convoy is an event that will be taking place on 1st of June, 2020. With help from Fun4All and any members that apply, we will be able to celebrate Pride for those who had to fight for their right to marry, love, and be accepted as part of the community.
2020 will be the first Pride Convoy Event hosted on TruckersMP and will surely not be the last of them.
It is important to note - This is not a charity event. This event is here to raise awareness for discrimination against the community, not to raise money for it. The intention is to celebrate and take pride!
Why not have a chance to join in the fun, doing what you love to take Pride of the love between any and all genders and the acceptance of all sexual orientations.
Come meet with the rest of the community partaking in this event and join the Discord for more information and details.
Websites and web links will be listed below for ease of access along with pages where more detail about the event can be seen.

The Schedule will be approximate times only, however, routes have been driving and overestimated to ensure more accurate timings. (All times are in BST / UTC+0100)
TruckFest: 19:00 - 20:00
Route 1: 20:00 - 21:00
Route 2: 21:15 - 22:15
Route 3: 22:30 - 23:30
Route 4: 23:45 - 00:45
Route 5: 01:00 - 02:00
We understand completely that, due to timezones and or timings, you may not be able to make it to the event.
The staff has worked very hard on times that will work for most people, however, impossible to achieve all.
This is the reason we made multiple routes, therefore, more people will be able to attend Route 1 from the UK, but not as many for Route 5.
Attendance is not required, however, it is our goal to attempt to get as many people part of this event as possible and get the best possible outcome.
If these times do not fit your needs or personal schedule, we are sorry, especially if you are unable to turn up to the event.
Although, these are the times we chose, and, unless further action needs to be taken, these are remaining permanent.

Title 2. - Save Editing Rules
(2)01. It is not permitted to mix parts between truck, trailers and cars. Any truck parts can be used on any truck, any trailer parts can be used on any trailer - but you are not permitted to use any truck parts on trailers or viceversa.
(2)02. It is not permitted to use items intended for the exterior of a truck on the interior, or items intended for the interior on the exterior.
(2)03. It is not permitted to use parts which float from the truck or trailer, such as floating cargo models (even if only one object in the model is floating). It is not permitted to use any parts which cause models to clip through each other, such as a cargo model which clips through the truck cab - minor clipping such as between the parts of a hybrid truck are permitted.
(2)04. It is only permitted to use a trailer combination which is default within each game. The exact trailers and cargoes used do not matter in this rule and can be mixed freely. The maximum length of any trailer combination must not exceed the length of the longest default combination ("HCT" for ETS2 and "Turnpike Double" for ATS, see images below) - using a longer trailer on any combination is permitted if it is within this length.
Allowed combinations for ETS2 (styles and sizes will vary)
Allowed combinations for ATS (styles and sizes will vary)
(2)05. If a mod you are using is found to be affecting other players, you can be banned and required to remove the mod. This includes mods which cause you to lose control of your vehicle and/or trailer(s) and cause a collision. High numbers of duplicate parts are also included in this, meaning the tinted green lights are not permitted - a small amount (1-5) of duplicates is unlikely to cause an issue, but if you are found to be causing gameplay issue with any number of duplicates, you can be banned and required to remove them.
(2)06. Beacon lights are only permitted on default positions - on the roof of trucks or on the dedicated slot on the rear of trailers which support it (not the bumper slots). High amounts of blinking lights can also cause issues and as such can come under this rule.
(2)07. Trailers from the Heavy Cargo DLC on either game must only be in their default combinations. Cargo swaps with other trailers are permitted, but these trailers must not be used in double/triple trailer combinations other than default. The ATS "Forest Machinery" DLC is included within this.
(2)08. The "saddle-mounted truck" trailers in ATS must only be in the default combination, these trailers must not be used in double/triple trailer combinations other than default.
(2)09. Make sure that all mods you are using comply with these rules. You are responsible for all the modifications you decide to apply. If your modifications go against these rules you might face a punishment. If you are unsure whether your mod is allowed or not, ask staff members before going in-game. If a mod you use (regardless of origin) is found to be a cause of you losing control of your vehicle and collide with another player, you are liable to be banned for reckless driving.
