  1. Suggestion Name: Recording of collision statistics

    Suggestion Description: A system that registers whenever a vehicle has a collision with another player.

    Why should it be added?: This would allow admins to make an informed decision on whether or not their changes have actually reduced collisions. This would mean that potentially useless safety rules can be removed and potentially useful safety rules can be added. It would be able to decipher whether the 110km/h speed limit has reduced collisions etc.

  2. The first weeks will be chaos as people learn to adapt to the new conditions, once those weeks are up it will be fine. In mid January, everything will be normal, but people won't be driving as fast due to the slippery roads. This is how real winter goes too, at first it's chaos of people on summer tyres getting stuck, but eventually everything goes back to normal as people adapt to the winter.

    @Dudeface I don't see any "pros" in that video, I just see bad drivers losing control of their cars in the wintermod and calling it drifting.

     

    To OP;

    While I wouldn't want the Wintermod to be available year round, I do think it would be nice if they had support for his spring and fall mods.

    It's almost as if that's the joke. (Also one of the cars that spun was an admin.)


  4. Suggestion Name: Permanent 100km/h speed limiter for the C-D road

    Suggestion Description: To place a 100km/h speed limiter throughout the entire C-D road and maybe lower it to 80 through some major crash zones (like the tight corners.) and lower it to 50 through the infamous spots (Diamond interchange with the A73 highway etc and the railway crossing.

    Any example images: No

    Why should it be added?: There is currently a blanket 150km/h speed limiter for all of truckersMP, even on the German Autobahn for some reason. The car speed limit on the C-D road is 100km/h so the fastest anyone should go for the entirety of the C-D is 100km/h. The speed limiter would reduce wreckless overtaking, and wreckless crashes caused by people sitting at 150km/h for the whole C-D road. The suggestion would be easy to implement and should be implemented with a 2 week trial period to show if the C-D road has improved or worsened as a result. If the trial period is successful the speed limiter should remain. It would also partially reduce C-D road traffic flow as it would be faster to go 130-150km/h through French and Belgian multi-lane highways that are much safer at those speeds due to their break down lanes, and 1-2 overtaking lanes.

  5. I'd shift sequentially even with the DSG, right now though the gearbox is as cumbersome as it gets. You pull the lever and then the gearbox decides "Time to make a cake, go to the shop, talk to some friends, and oh yes, I'll change gear too." The 1.8 TSI is also rather pathetic, the accelerator pedal isn't actually an accelerator, more a noise setting, more throttle, more noise. The 2.0 TDI is better, but I can't stand the noise. It sounds like it was fueled with sandpaper, I drive the 1.8 TSI.

    Hopefully there'll be DSG farts. https://youtu.be/_LnHb2FKmnM


  6. I follow the car speed limit so get passed alot by morons, sometimes when I can see an overtake could be dangerous, I move into the left lane and block it to stop the other vehicle from sideswiping me when they see the oncoming traffic. (usually a truck, I've noticed that cars don't often do this). I'd rather I sideswipe them than they sideswipe me, it seems that the rear corners of every car and truck are indestructible.


  7. I am a Skoda driver, and I usually pick up quite a bit of speed, but stay within the limit,  not like the video there, also, change gear more often. You don't need to slow down to 3km/h at every corner if your car has the grip. Drive at the speed limit, not (much) slower, not faster. On the German Autobahn, I drive at 150km/h, this is because it is safe to do so on roads that can accommodate 150km/h. Another important thing to do is to keep your driving smooth, the video shows the Skoda taking such strange lines (i.e exiting the corners on the inside rather than the outside.) Keeping smooth lines increases safety and performance.

    Maybe a 5 speed transmission added, new sounds for engines like quieter engine volume as it's very loud, and maybe the interior dashboard view as it's currently using a Scania one, maybe it's possible to have a custom one for the scout that suits it better.

    And the windscreen/windshield wipers need to be done so they actually work and not just move without getting rid of the rain. The braking needs sorting out too which i think you will be doing ;).

    the rear-view mirror isn't just showing seats and shows what's behind the car, the RPM to red-line and not just stop before it, makes it more realistic and better. The speedometer (Speed gauge) changed to be lower speeds due to speed limiter.

     

    That's all my suggestions and i hope the Scout car will be much better in the future :D

    Why add a 5-speed transmission? VAG products are mostly 6 speed, 5 speed would just mean worse performance due to longer gear ratios.


  9. Suggestion Name: Permanently close the C-D road

    Suggestion Description: Permanently close the C-D road

    Any example images: 

    Why should it be added?: The C-D road is chaos and almost all traffic is on the C-D road. Closing the C-D road would make people have to go to different routes and make other areas have more traffic. At the current point, everywhere else on the map is empty while the C-D road is completely full at all times. This makes driving anywhere else boring, and driving on the C-D chaotic.

  10. Here are my ideas:

    Small lip spoiler (Nothing excessive, no ricer wings.)

    A choice between 4Motion AWD and FWD

    DSG gearbox

    2.0 TFSI (EA888, 237bhp)

    Better brakes

    Realistic weight

    Realistic headlight range

    Oversteer and understeer (As opposed to just rolling over)

    VRS badging

    3.6L VR6 (From VW Passat R36, 295bhp)

    Lower suspension option (Nothing excessive, the whole wheel must still be outside of the wheel arch.)

    Better window tint

    Realistic fuel consumption and fuel tank size.


  11. Suggestion Name: 2.0 TSI engine for Skoda

    Suggestion Description: A 237bhp 2.0 TSI engine for the Skoda. (A 3.6L VR6 swap would be cool but not realistic, so maybe not.)

    Any example images: No

    Why should it be added?: Most crashes with the Skoda are caused by failed overtakes, a 2.0TSI engine would make the Skoda accelerate faster and able to complete the moves. It wouldn't lead to reckless driving because of the new 150km/h speed limiter. It was previously stated on different Skoda related suggestions that they can't be done as TruckersMP didn't make the mod, however, it wouldn't be hard to request the mod maker to put in 1 new engine. 

     

    Edit, NVM there's a thread for this. :/


  12. Suggestion Name:  Bring back forum ban reports/appeals.

    Suggestion Description: Bring back the old system for ban reports/appeals

    Any example images: 

    Why should it be added?: The admins are more active on the forum. The ban appeal that my friend wrote (https://truckersmp.com/appeals/view/133687) hasn't been seen in 2 days, I also know that an admin/moderator will see this post before they see that appeal. If it were still the old system that appeal would've been seen already by now. One ban report that I wrote took over a week to be seen. The old system was faster and I see no reason why we can't have both.

     

    *Edit* The old reporting system of reporting used to be done through posts in the forum in the "Reporting" thread.
