    Single player road works

    Occasionally I come across roadworks or incidents at the side of road that are left over from SP when playing in MP. Most are just a super brave policeman stood at side of road while trucks whizz by but occasionally I come across a whole section of coned off area. Id been avoiding them but I saw a player drive straight through them recently like they weren't there. So.… next time I came across one I did the same and drove straight at it.... guess what..... you cant drive straight through them. It stopped me dead and wrecked my truck. Im guessing these are locally spawned on your own screen/client but not necessarily on other players? and they are in fact real obstacles that you cant drive through..Is that right? Seems like an accident waiting to happen if so.. Ie I move over to avoid the obstacle that another player cant actually see on their screen. It will look like im trying to block.

    How would YOU cope with this?

    just submit a report and change servers to carry on. Learnt a long time ago that getting stressed about it doesn't make the game any more enjoyable.

    Why do we drive too fast?

    Maybe im just old but I cant get my head around the thought process (or lack of?) behind those that want to drive as fast as they can. When buying the game originally, it clearly says Euro Truck SIMULATOR in the title. At which point do these players take that to mean its not a simulator at all but a racing game? Or do they think it’s a simulator just because you can drive a truck and that’s where the simulator part ends? I guess im in the group of players that takes a simulator to mean that you play the game to simulate a real life experience, in this case – driving a truck and everything that goes with that. Racing at max speed just doesn’t enter my head. Even when these racing players want to race around, why do they need to do it around everyone else and risk getting banned. I just don’t get it.

    Viva Trucking | Professional VTC

    next step for me is join up on a convoy/meet (once I figure out how to get voice working on my discord)
  7. [VIVA] Andy Suter

    Which VTC?

    Cool! good choice, hope my dm's helped convince you!. I drive solo but don't mind teaming up for small group convoys. I like seeing other vivas on the road as they generally always say hello.

    Truck or car?

    when caravans first arrived I thought id give it a go. I was actually quite surprised by the difference. I chose a sensible colour (not some neon green or other in your face colour) Driving physics aside, the reaction of other 'truck' drivers was a shock. I saw some drivers pull over or stop at junction even if they had right of way, I assume as they feared I was a troll and was just ram them. Then I also had the opposite, numerous trucks coming the other way, swerving into my lane to try and shove me off the road, one actually succeeded. Only lasted one night and I went back to trucks.

    Convoy Ettiquette - Is it dying?

    Even though im in a big VTC I haven't partook in any convoys. I prefer to drive solo. But I have noticed a general disregard for non convoys players shown by those in a convoy. Whether its because they forget the rules as they are playing with their mates and their discord will be full of banter etc but convoys do tend to think they own the road. Whether this be blocking so they can drive side by side, pulling out of junctions just because their mate found a gap in the traffic etc If only it was allowed to build a death truck with a huge snow plough on the front......

    What would you like to see in ETS2 update 1.35?

    Would love a fixed axle truck. Nearest I can get is the single axle short trailer :/

    World of Trucks: One Truck Event

    First reward is to deliver all 10 trucks to any of the destinations (as they rotate). Second reward is to make deliveries to 5 different cities. To unlock this the quickest way you will have had to deliver the first 4 places already and now wait for the next delivery city to open up. For those that haven't, you'll just need to wait for the delivery cities to switch so you can tick 5

    One Truck Family Event

    Need to be in a pick up city and if it doesn't show in externals, just hit the refresh button. It should appear. Happened to me a few times.

    Im probably guilty of not reading stuff here but how are the SP liveries showing in that image. Im using the MP standard paint job but would prefer the image above (just a thought but im guessing other non viva drivers will just see a standard paint colour like green or white )

    Where do your truck sim roots come from?

    There was a game in the 80’s, a top down truck game, likely on the spectrum 128K where you had to deliver to a depot and reverse into the spaces, increasing in difficulty. You can get similar (but better graphics) on your phones now lol. Graphics wise it looked a lot like the original GTA
