I'm Ultra. I played alot of TruckersMP in the last 2 years or so. It is a very fun game if you don't look at the griefers ;D.
I'd like to give the TruckersMP Team a suggetion, which is AI Traffic in TruckersMP. I can see that this propably would be a problem, because the server needs to spawn Traffic not only around you but also on 4000 other Players at times.
It would be also nice, if the Traffic is the same for everyone, so you can't see your friend drive through an AI bus in your screen, because on his screen there is noone.
But maybe you guys give it a go and you manage to master this problem .
The Pros I thought of are:
+The world feels a lot more alive and diverse, which adds to the replayability aspect of your mod.
+Because the Server has some griefers online, it could force them to obey more traffic rules to not constantly crash with an AI car.
+The Trucks would also obey the Traffic Rules more. For example: People in cities often rush to their destination ignoring lights and speed limits. If you add AI traffic, then suddenly these Trucks have to obey the rules to not crash and earn their money.
The Cons i think of:
-A big chunk of coding maybe?
-System and server Resources need to be tested on that,
-There would be more Traffic jams in popular cities. (But also: Hey thats life, traffic jams happen)
If you could add this at some point of the developement, it would be awesome ^^
