    AFK kick timelimit

    10 minutes is perfectly fine, and more than enough time to do any task in the game. If you're doing company stuff, then do as much as you can in the allotted time, get back in your vehicle, drive a little and then resume the company work you were doing. The timer is necessary to prevent people from wasting playable slots on the server by disappearing for hours, and to prevent trucks from being parked across the road for too long.

    Thoughts on Calais to Duisburg route

    I've watched a few of those videos. I don't know if the irony is lost on the guy who records them, but his own driving is pretty atrocious; always speeding, tailgating, etc. Half the accidents he gets into could easily be avoided if he adjusted his driving style to the situation.
  3. When people say "rec ban" it always amuses me because of how pointless the phrase is. For a start, the person saying it can't actually be sure that person will be banned, but arguably the biggest issue I have about it is that it's an utterly pointless thing to say. If someone's driving like an idiot and you feel the need to report them, then just do it and move on; there's literally no point then saying "rec ban" as if it's going to earn you some brownie points for saying it. It's also just stupid seeing it so often; it's without a doubt on of the most overused phrases I've ever seen, and probably fills the chat window more than anything else. People just need to take a chill pill.

    Thoughts on Calais to Duisburg route

    It's a shame. One of the longest single-carriageway roads in the game, and it's infested with muppets with the driving mentality of a 5 year old. There are good drivers there no doubt, but whenever I've been on it, it's always been a disaster and endless chaos. What always amuses me is sticking to the speed limit while some nutcase is behind me flashing and beeping his horn because he wants to do 150 km/h.
  5. You are entitled to your opinion, and it's good that you've put it forward. The problem I have is that you're wanting the speed limit removed because it's a simulation game, which wouldn't be an issue of it wasn't for the fact that this game is Euro Truck Simulator 2. As I already pointed out, all trucks in the EU are legally obliged to be fitted with a limiting device set to 90 km/h (56 mph); so actually, ETS2MP already technically breaks that simulation apart from EU1. You want it to be more "simulated", and yet your desire to have the speed limit removed is completely unrealistic because even cars can't just go as fast as they want in real life Europe.
  6. I stuck mine on channel 8 and the sound of silence is glorious; not hearing some muppets screaming down their mic, or playing loud music.
  7. You want the speed limiter removed because it's a simulation game...about trucks which in real life, are legally required to be physically limited to 90 km/h (56 mph). What you just described as being "unrealistic" is exactly what a speed limiter in a truck does; it stops the engine producing any further speed after a set point. So hang on. One minute you're claiming it should be removed because it's a simulation game...but then you're mocking people like me who drive it like a simulation. I'm sorry, but I'm really struggling to understand all this.

    How much kilometers driven you have ?

    How on Earth have you even managed to stack up that much distance? That's crazy

    Why every person should have a pet?

    People should only have pets if their life situation is compatible. If you don't earn enough money to live on comfortably, then don't buy a pet. Also, if you're always at work or out doing other things, it'd be a bit unfair to have a cat or dog. Furthermore, there are people like me who live in rented accommodation that strictly forbid having pets.

    Do you play other games?

    Euro Truck Simulator 2 Fallout 4 Kingdom Come: Deliverance The Witcher 3 Forza Horizon 4
  12. I did a test as you suggested, and initially it seemed to work better at 0.5 suspension stiffness. Unfortunately, on the third attempt the problem happened again; the car rapidly accelerated by about 10-15mph and hit the central barrier. It could be possible that the way the assets are made could be contributing to this issue with the way the physics are now.
  13. Thing is, I've noticed similar things happening in the car; not the acceleration, but the bump and crashing. I don't exceed 70 mph (112 km/h), and very rarely do that speed when trying to join some of the motorways in England, and yet it still happens. Once such incident was when I was driving the motorway past Calais; my car was doing 112 km/h when it bumped on the end of a bridge and spun out. I'm going to try and make a video to show what I mean. EDIT: So it appears the speed bug does actually happen to the car, and is the cause of some of the crashes I've had. Test Performed on EU4 Non-Collision Server

    New MAN TGX Euro 6 is out !

    The one in the video appears to be a newer model; the ones I had to drive were 2001 models which were absolutely shocking. I know the buses I currently drive, which are Scania N double deckers with Enviro400 bodies use the same steering wheel as the trucks, as well as the instrument panel.

    trailers for cars

    I definitely agree that the reward for delivering them definitely needs to be a lot more sensible; no one is going to pay tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands to have a £15,000 caravan hauled across Europe. Some reward? Yes. Major reward? No. At the end of the day, while I love driving the car most of the time (I've never touched the caravans), it's still a truck simulator and the rewards for deliveries need to reflect that.
