    Should TruckersMP change their ban system?

    Well, I can't talk about others, but myself, more than 4 years, not one ban in my history and I'm not friends with any GM (or any other TMP staff member), so to put it simpler: If I could play TMP for that long and have no bans, anyone can. Like I said before, it's just about knowing and following the rules. Of course it's easier (and according to many, also funnier) to just ignore the rules. But then, players who do it are usually the ones who come complaining about "unfair" bans and asking to change the system.

    Fuel consumption - Your records

    You all have to be kidding... I've been out of the game for a while, but I remember that with the same truck, hauling all kinds of trailers from 3 to 44 tons, my average fuel consumption was lower than 35 l./100 Km (after more than 100000 Km on the road). An average for a 2000+ Km job with a less than 20 tons cargo would be lower than 30 l. / 100 Km. Maybe it's because: 1 - I use a truck with 480 HP instead of the most popular 730/750 HP ones. 2 - I drive by the speed limits or even slower at times, instead of pedal to the metal. 3 - I enabled "realistic consumption" in the settings. One image I found, you can see that the average after more than 64000 Km is lower than 30: And another one, with a previous truck (also Scania, different model), after more than 210000 Km:

    world of trucks

    Esto sucede siempre durante el tiempo desde que SCS lanza una nueva versión hasta que TMP se actualiza. World of Trucks solo funciona con la versión actualizada del juego, que es la 1.35, así que si quieres usar WoT, tienes que dejar que el juego se actualice, pero entonces no podrás jugar TMP. Es cuestión de decidir qué es prioritario para ti, si jugar MP con la 1.34 o jugar con acceso a WoT con la 1.35. Hasta que TMP no esté actualizado y sea compatible, hay que elegir una de las dos opciones.

    Should TruckersMP change their ban system?

    Just try to see it like this: There are people who have been playing TMP for more than 4 years without one single ban. You have been playing for less than 2 months and already have 5 bans (that's why your last one is 3 months long). The rules and the ban system are the same for everyone. So, how would you explain it? It's just as easy as following the rules. If you can't, then maybe you should find another game or stick to single player (no rules or bans there). About "unfair bans", this is something that almost everyone who has received a ban will say. And it may be true in some cases, but... 5 times? Really? Changing the system so players can be banned 20 or 30 times would only make TMP totally unbearable, only the trolls, reckless players, idiots who think the rules are not meant for them, would be happy... A lot more chances to destroy other people's game time without punishment. Is this what you want?

    Do you have a high beam at night?

    I do quite the opposite, I'll drive with high beams on as long as there's no one in front of my truck and switch to headlights as soon as I see someone coming on the other way or overtaking me.

    Do Game Moderators abuse the Police Siren?

    I have found this only once and that time, the GM not only had lights and sirens on, he asked me to pull over and stop, so I did. Luckily, it had nothing to do with me breaking any rules, it was just that the GM and I knew each other and he had decided to do a little "role playing", stopping me, asking for documentation, cargo, etc. We were stopped for a while, having a friendly chat and then kept going. But if I found myself in that situation right now, I'd only feel annoyed. I believe that game moderators should not go driving their police cars, lights or not, sirens or not. They should be stopped, looking into reports, using freecam and teleport to check the reported situations, etc. If they want to call me out for anything, they can use in-game chat, PM or even the CB. Obviously, they have the right to play just as anyone else, but when doing this, they should not go as GMs, but as any other player, no police car, no sirens, no lights... Just my opinion.

    Remove speed limits from EU#4 server.

    @MaverickTD The point of the game is defeated already in all servers other than EU#1. If TMP wanted to make their mod follow the goal of the game, the speed limits would have to be something like 50 Km/h inside cities, 90 Km/h on open roads. In all servers. But right now, anyone can drive their trucks at 150 Km/h everywhere they want and this is nothing like simulation. I just thought that since TMP has become more of a "Fast and furious" instead of a truck simulator, if most of the speed lovers move to a server without speed limits (but no collisions) the MP would be safer for everyone in any server.

    Teleporting with F9 after using free camera in TMP has never worked. If you are speaking of SP, maybe it's a new limitation implemented by SCS in 1.35 version and if that's the case, there's nothing TMP can do about it.

    Remove speed limits from EU#4 server.

    OK, that would make sense. But how do you know this? Because the way I see it, the developers already knew how to set a forced speed limit BEFORE deciding to make all servers 150 Km/h max. (EU#1 was 110/60 limited long before that). Which IMO makes it a lot more credible that they just applied a similar limit (server-based) on all other servers, only instead of 60/110 Km/h, the new one was 80/150 Km/h. Maybe if someone from the staff reads this, they can ask the developers and get a proper answer, but like I said, I never heard of hard-coded mod-side speed limits and if there were, I think that this suggestion would have been rejected right away with a simple explanation: "Speed limits can not be removed from a single server".

    Remove speed limits from EU#4 server.

    I never heard something like that, but even if it were true, we currently have different speed limits in different servers: EU#1 has 60/110 Km/h (inside/outside cities) and the other servers have 80/150 Km/h. So if each server can be coded with a different speed limit, it would be as simple as making EU#4 have speed limits of 300/300 Km/h or even higher...

    Ping differences between servers

    The main difference is in the number of users in each server. Peak time, EU#1 server rarely has more than 500 players, EU#2 has more than 4000. Handling all the data from +4000 users makes the server to struggle and ping times to increase, if you try EU#2 when there are less than 1000 users connected, you'll see that the pings are almost identical to those in EU#1 server. BTW, using VPN services to connect to any servers won't improve your ping, as it is based mainly upon distance between the server and the client computer. From Paris to Australia it's like 14000 Km (9000 miles) and there's no way to avoid that with VPN or any other "location changer programs". There used to be a Hong Kong based server, much closer to Australia, this would've been the best option, but almost no one was using it and it was eventually closed. Suggestions to open an Australia based server have been made in the past and rejected due to the low amount of users that would join that server and the prices being too high to be worth it.

    Possible solution for most trolling

    @F U R Y No and no. Read again the suggestion. The problem is not solved, what we have now is nothing like what I suggested. And EU#4 is not like the EU#2 I suggested (speed limits and 2300 player slots vs. no speed limits and 5000 slots).

    Speed limit on the Calais/Duisburg route.

    @ScaniaFan89 For several months, I've been playing in no servers... Last time I played, it was for the SCS event and did all of it in SP after seeing what was happening at the delivery points in MP. For months before that, I did play in EU#1 mostly, but since I like the long jobs, it was boring to drive for hours seeing no one. As for the C-D road, I can't even remember when was the last time I went near it. And about my statement: "it's ridiculous to see those GTA fans driving their trucks at 150 Km/h on 70-80 Km/h limited roads." it seems to me that you, like most of other players, have forgotten what the game is about. Truck Simulator. Driving trucks at 150 Km/h has nothing to do with simulation and a lot to do with racing or GTA "emulation". Sorry if I offended you (and I'm being honest here, not like those who say "sorry" at least once every minute in MP-EU#2), but I stopped playing MP because most of the time, instead of having a relaxed gaming time, I could only have a boring ghost-world-driving experience (EU#1) or a completely annoying "try to survive the idiots on the road" experience (EU#2). And I'm pretty sure that nobody gives a ****.

    Speed limit on the Calais/Duisburg route.

    There's a problem here... I don't think that server-side speed limits can be applied to a specific road. And even if they can, let's not forget that the cars are nothing but a truck in disguise, so it would be impossible to have different speed limits for trucks and cars, it would need to be the same for both (I may be wrong about this but I don't think so). Anyway, setting speed limits will always be a +1 from me, it's ridiculous to see those GTA fans driving their trucks at 150 Km/h on 70-80 Km/h limited roads. Not just on the C-D, a global speed limiter of 90 Km/h (and of course, 50 or 60 Km/h inside cities) would have also my +1.
  15. I don't get it. Honestly. People who want a server with no rules, no bans, so they can go crashing everyone else without being punished... IMO, that's the definition of TROLL. And trolls are not allowed in any online games, even racing ones. Why not try and find some "destruction derby" games, where the goal is precisely to ram or destroy others? I'm pretty sure that there are games like those in the market...
