    And again admins do whatever they want.

    Alot of the people don't even know what a yield sign looks like, and others just ignore them and just don't pay any attention. We see stuff like this alot. I have a golden rule I use myself, if I approach an intersection where I have priority, and there is traffic around, I will always stop or slow down enough so I can stop intime and anticipate to others making mistakes, eg if the other player blows the yield sign. And only after i know for sure the other player will give me priority (by slowing down, flashing headlights, or fully coming to a stop) only then I will enter said intersection. Even approaching stoplights I will always slow down enough to anticipate, even when I have green, as there always will be that one guy that is bonkers enough to blow a red light and crash into you, preferably at high speed offcourse, causing all sorts of problems. Anticipation is key in a multiplayer game like this, even if you know you have priority, always anticipate to others mistakes. It's not because you have priority, you should take it without hazitation. Especialy in a game like this, and even more IRL. Moral of the story: Be the smarter person, anticipate, and avoid unnecessary havoc.
  2. Suggestion Name: Allow Heavy Cargo to be used on a flatbed trailer in double setup Suggestion Description: According to rule §3.7 - Heavy Cargo DLC trailers: **Cargo swaps with other trailers are permitted, but these trailers must not be used in double/triple trailer combinations other than default**, we canot use Heavy Cargo cargo on other trailers in a double or HCT setup. I've been warned for this a while back, (because I interpreted the rule different and thought I could not use a Heavy Cargo trailer in a double or HCT setup) and had to change it. So this suggestion is about deleting this particular rule and allow the Heavy Cargo to be used again on flatbed trailers in a double or HCT setup. I can't find any reason why it is allowed in a single setup, but not in double or HCT. NOTE: As of now, only 3 of the Heavy Cargo cargoes fit fairly good on a flatbed trailer: Terex Crane, Komatsu D155 and the Locomotive. Any example images: In this pic, I have a flatbed with the Komatsu D155 from Heavy Cargo DLC on it, and in the back a Swarchemuller trailer and cargo. (This is NOT allowed as of now according to the rule above, because I have a Heavy cargo on a flatbed in a HCT setup) Why should it be added?: Why not? It works, looks good, and it was allowed before the major TMP update. And I don't see any problem with it.

    Best truck (specs) for heavy cargo

    I have a fleet of different trucks in SP (with alot of oversize trailer mods) and MP depending on what I'm planning to haul. (Special transports, very heavy, medium heavy, flatbed oversize, long loads,...) But in MP I mostly use the Man TGX 640hp 8x4 with the 16 gears and retarder for the heaviest loads. It's not about horsepowers, it's all about the gearbox (amount of gears) and how much torque your truck can give at certain RPM's. You don't need the highest amount of HP. A 750 hp truck is useless with an 6 or 8 speed tranny for heavy hauls. It also kinda depends on your setup you are driving with. EG: I have G27 with a SKRS so I shift all 16 (or 14 depending on the truck and tranny) gears manually, which is best for heavy hauling, especially in hilly or offroad terrain. Chassis wise, you have different options IMO: 8x4, 6x4 or even 6x2 with tag axle. So short, it depends on what you haul (weight wise), where you haul (terrain wise), and what setup you are using.

    0.2.2.6.1 Released

    @ScaniaFan89 ATM only outside the restriciton zone is everything OFFICIALY allowed, doubles, triples and hct's. Inside is a bit buggy and confusing since update 1.35, hence they stated they gonna fix this ASAP WITHOUT giving an ETA. What I said is only my own thinking they not gonna add hct's and triples inside the restricition zone, based on some common sence. Imagin when CD allowes those hct's and triples. Would be a bit of a mess right? As good of a driver you might be with doubles and triples, does not mean others are. IMO they should not allow the hct's and triples inside the zone. They could reduce the zone for hct's and triples, but we can only speculate at this point. (I have every right to be wrong) And this whole forum is a complain forum and kids whining about updates. Again, they announced it on twitter they are working on it without an ETA. Just sit yo *ss down and wait until they release the patch. Whining and complaining about it is not gonna give you the fix sooner, right? Dev's are working hard on updates, patches and fixes, but fcs, have some patiance. If you don't like the pace they going, join the team, and show them how to do it faster in your own private time. I rest my case.

    @ScaniaFan89 why don't you join the team then since you seem to know how stuff works. Stop whining about it, they stated there will be a fix soon without an ETA. Besides, they are probably only planning to make the b-double trailer work in the restriction zone, so it's not just a case of removing the code, as HCT and triples are still going to be restricted.

    0.2.2.6.1 Released

    Well, when SCS realeases a new update, the TMP team has to catch up in most cases to make their mod compatible with the original game. There is nothing TMP can be blamed for. So yes, downgrade for only a 51mb update, or single player until they catch up.

    0.2.2.6.1 Released

    Thanks for the new update, great job guys! Now as for the confusion with the doubles and triples: As of version 1.34 (and below): you were allowed to drive b-doubles, hct doubles and b-triples everywhere around the map, EXCEPT the restriction zone around CD-area (see rules section 5.2 for a map of the zone). There were different ways to get those trailers in: - Forerunners mod (save in single player, load in multiplayer) - Drive them from the countries where they are allowed by SCS (Scandinavia and Baltics) to where ever you want them. - Save edit the trailers in. As of 1.35: You are still allowed to drive them everywhere around the map as it was in 1.34 and below (except restriction area) BUT there are a few things to keep in mind about the b-double trailers on CD you guys seeing driving around: - it appears ONLY the new b-doubles that SCS added in 1.35 can be drivin on CD and inside restriction zone (b-double container trailer, b-double log trailer) - So hct double or triple or other b-double* (*b-doubles from version 1.34 and below like the Krone doubles,...) are not allowed and will result in a kick from the restriction zone. Further: SCS allowed b-doubles in Germany and Netherlands as they drive there IRL also, but as said above: ONLY the new b-double trailers are seem to work in the restriction zone (Duisburg, CD-road,...). In the next few updates and patches the TMP team will probably sort these things out, give you guys the info you need, and change the rules also if needed. These are the things I found out so far, so correct me if I'm wrong. Regards

    Tbh you flew over that intersection, giving the other traffic no chanse to anticipate and stop to give you way. Right of way should be giving to you, don't just take it like that Ok, I get they also need to slow down and see you coming, but don't just fly through that intersection. Imo you are part of the problem here.

    Update 1.35 release

    Try looking for a solution on this forum or the SCS forums. I had the same problem, the only thing I had to do was copy the config file from the latest 1.34 version. There are backups from your save files from each version in the Euro Truck Simulator 2 folder: profiles(1.34.0.41s).bak Honestly, there are solutions enough on how to solve this problem, a bit of googling or searching around on the different fora gets you a long way Moral of the story, that's why you don't use your main profile in beta's or new versions if you wanna keep playing TMP

    double trailer save editing

    Look at how many accessories the back trailer has (16), and now look at how much accessories you selected to be replaced by the semi low loader. You only need to replace the accessories from the last trailer, what you did in the video is replacing the front trailer aslo, which won't work offcourse. Replace only these 16 accessories: _nameless.1d8.b8ae.e5c0 ... ... _nameless.1d8.b6b3.4e50 look in your video @2:06 The vehicle_paint_job_accessory is the last accessorie from the last trailer. Everything underneath that is from the first trailer.

    Caravan Behind Truck and Trailer, Is This Allowed?

    Hi guys, Last, I tried save editing a caravan to a normal truck and trailer. Just to see if it would work, and it does :p works like a charm. One question tho, I checked the rules to make sure I was not doing anything against the rules, but did not found any rule which specificly says you can't add a caravan behind a normal truck and trailer. I actually never seen this combination in mp before, and I don't get autokicked as soon as I log in to the server, so that's why I was in doubt. Here are a few pictures for reference. (It's shot on a triple screen, hence the high resolution) Edit: I do know since this is classed as a double, this trailer is not allowed in the restriction zone) Kind regards Kevin BE

    Restriction zone doubles and triples

    Hello, I got confirmation on my question, but what I want to ask is to change something to make it more abvious it's not allowed to drive doubles or triples on CD, because with the problem of the autokick only kicking in after gasstation, it's confusing some of the players weither or not it's allowed. I think it's better to send a ticket or something explaining this problem, because I don't think this is the right section in the forum to ask. Thanks anyways for the anwsers. Topic can be closed (and moved to trash). Kind Regards Kevin BE
