  1. I have a simple one too. Drive like 99% of us would on the real life roads and you wont go too far wrong. Ie… treat it like a sim and not a racing game and you will be good. Lastly, always have recording on, if not to report others, at least to cover your own ass when you get rammed by some troll.
  2. Ive been noticing this ‘issue’ for a while but after trying the roads around Corsica it just reminded me to ask the question. Its in relation to truck/trailer stability. I have mine set quite high up the scale (as well as brake intensity). Yet im finding my truck feels very wobbly (was old scania, now new actros). I feel like its going to tip over on some corners and indeed it has done a few times. Totally my fault as I was going too fast. But heres the issue – Im actually going slower than most. If I go the correct speed so I don’t tip over, im holding people up. If I let them pass, they zoom off into the distance. Is there something else I need to be setting up? Im not wanting to be a speed demon, I just cant understand how others are taking corners so much faster with apparently no issues.
  3. i only play on PM1 now. I love it. Just the right amount of people so you arent lonely and i think its a massive improvement over vanilla maps. I cant see myself going back to sim 1 unless im forced
  4. looks great but i can see myself getting frustrated if i have to sit through a 2min cut scene everytime i cross the river
  5. 1) the autosave does pop up in the top left and causes a very slight blip in play but its always done this. The freezing im meaning is a full on frozen screen for like 8 seconds. 2) Im not sure. I dont think i am. Only thing ive changed is install rockstar game launcher and the proess lasso program which controls the cores. I may uninstall it and see if it solves it. 3) I fired all my AI drivers a year ago. The freezing has only started happening last night, which makes me think its something to do with the process lasso program. Ive not tried sim 1 as i only play on promods 1 so i may give that a try to see if its server or promod related and not my machine at all The only other thing i can think of is theres been an minor update or patch or something in the last week?
  6. i'll buy it, once i know how it affects promods 1 server as thats where i play now and dont want to cause any conflict with it.
  7. Has anyone else been suffering from temp freezing of the game for anything between 3 and 8 seconds. Literally the screen freezes and resumes from where it froze. Im also getting an occasional mild 'clicking' in the sound every 20-30 seconds or so. Never noticed this before last night. The only thing ive changed is install process lasso software which was to help red dead redemption run without freezing. While it could be this, i believe that any management of the cores is program specific? I just want to establish if its my end or server end? (i tested my ethernet connection and i was getting 67mpbs and 25+ upload so my internet is fine)
  8. That’s a totally fair point and one I was conscious of when creating the poll. Ive tried to keep it as anonymous as possible and just for clarity, even as the OP I can only see how many have voted in each category, not who voted for what, so I guess the same as everyone else. Interesting results so far though, most players (on the forum!) are within the 18-30 age bracket with a clear majority, and some way behind is the next band up, 31-50. The over 50’s and under 18’s are very much minority groups. As expected, most users have a driving licences but I am surprised at how many don’t. I wouldn’t have expected a RL non driver to be interested in a driving simulator game but im clearly wrong as I guess you don’t need to be a solider to play Call of duty. I also expected the majority group to the over 30’s as I had In my head that trucks and HGVs are something that would be more appealing to an older person than a 20 something. Again, I way off on that one Maybe the poll also helps TMP with an indication of their player base.
  9. Its just a bit of fun and play on your quote. Dont be so serious.
  10. ^If you think 37 is old then by your standards I’m an old aged pensioner. I have 10 years on you (47) and I don’t consider myself to be old. haha
  11. i havent seen any cattle trailers for a long time. Are they still in game?
  12. Im Curious what the average age spread is on the forum/game. I think it would be quite a mature audience but i think we may be surprised. If you are willing please enter your age band below. Ive kept the poll private so people cant see who voted. And as an added question, tick if you have a real life driving licence also.
  13. Can yiu clarify who you think are being victimised?
  14. What i dont get is that virtually everyone on the forum says 'i dont speed, i respect the rules, i drive like a sim ' etc etc. This is all great and how it should be but out on the road its clear that forum users are the minority out there. 3000 people online and maybe 100 forum users. Shame forum users cant get a server of our own where to play you need so many forum posts or rep or something. Saying that it would be very quiet server
  15. Have you found any spots on the map that are so interesting with the added bonus that very few people visit. Last night i spent an evening in wales and my god, i love it. Its so well detailed, narrow lanes, cute villages, great scenery and best bit, i only saw 4 or 5 others also enjoying the peace and quiet Have you found any places that are worth a visit?
  16. Thanls. Thats exactly the problem. The game has more turn on the wheel than my g920. The game seems to realise this and the last bit of turn (probably at 4/5ths) of lock, it panics and spins the in game much faster. Only happens near full lock but does make parking up quite hard. Ill try the linearity thing.... first world problems eh!!!
  17. All sorted now thanks. Was a mix of needing to increase brake intensity, configuring some buttons to look left and right ( not perfect but best i can do) and just getting used to it as its so much more realistic now. I actually feel like im driving something! Steering is still a bit weird. 80% of the turn is fine, its just the final bit of steering lock seems to switch to 200% of actual wheel turn. Only happens at slow speed though. On the road its fine.
  18. thanks guys. I think its the rotation thing. It didnt come with any driver disks so i downloaded the logitech gaming hub? is that the same thing?
  19. Thanks guys. Heres my current settings
  20. I bought a G920 and its taking some getting used to. I have 3 'problems' which you guys may be able to offer advice on. 1) the steering. It turns fine and then all of a sudden the truck wheels turn a lot more than they should. Its like a 2 stage thing. ie normal, then gets to certain point and they go crazy 2) The brake pedal - its so god damn hard! It brakes ok if you need gentle but im getting caught out and needing to brake much harder than i think, which then requires a huge hard press 3) I like to look left and right at junctions. On my game pad i used the right thumb stick. I cant do that now so am using the free look mouse but its a bit awkward. What does everyone else do? Any help/tips appreciated. Im sure it some settings i have wrong
  21. Great guide and caught my attention as ive just bought a 2nd hand g920. I honestly thought it was plug and play with the only set up being inside ets2 option/controls to tell the game youre usi g a wheel and to set up a few buttons. Is this not the case?
  22. What the actual heck???!!! A group of people create a mod with so much content FOR FREE, with tge only requirement to make it work is that it needs all the dlcs and you have the balls go say promods is a scam. Do us all a favour buddy, dont download it.
  23. Promods to vanilla is like wearing a plain t shirt or wearing one branded with your favourite band or something. The vanilla is nice but once youve played promods i cant see myself ever going back to vanilla. The maps are so much more interesting. Actual road signs, markings, buildings, landmarks, scenery, companies, all that fit the country youre in instead of cut and plonk ( although that is still evident). Promods is what the actual vanilla game should be like. This is all great but then add in all the countries that dont exist in any dlc, iceland, ireland, spain, turkey, cyprus, corsica, northern norway/finland etc etc......mind blown Oh and like tmp, its free!. Its like youve won the lottery without even paying for the ticket
  24. i love pretty much every bit of the map ive found. So much more interesting that vanilla, but i can tell you one city i hate ----- Valencia.... the slow go part seems be to wrong as i get the message ive left the city, yet im restricted to 40mph, even on motorways well outside the city and beyond
