  1. First of all I want to say that this is very nice material. Everybody should get this to read before they can even start driving on the multiplayer simulation servers. Maybe an idea for the staff to integrate this in some kind of form of information right before people want to connect with the multiplayer?! But ... I wonder where you got those speeds from? Here in Belgium for example it is a little bit more complicated. Let me explain with the following tabel: URBAN AREA Within urban area: 50 km/h Vehicles above 7,5 tons with ADR classe 1: 40 km/h OUTSIDE URBAN AREA Trucks up to 7,5 tons On highways and 4-lane roads: 90 km/h On 4-lane roads: 90 km/h On other roads: 70 km/h Trucks heavier than 7,5 tons On highways: 90 km/h On 4-lane roads: 90 km/h On other roads: 60 km/h Truck - Trailer combo heavier than 7,5 tons On highways: 90 km/h On 4-lane roads: 90 km/h On other roads: 60 km/h HCT heavier than 7,5 tons On highways: 90 km/h On 4-lane roads: 90 km/h On other roads: 60 km/h Trucks heavier than 7,5 tons with ADR On highways: 90 km/h On 4-lane roads: 90 km/h On other roads: 60 km/h Trucks heavier than 7,5 tons with ADR Classe 1 On highways: 85 km/h On 4-lane roads: 70 km/h On other roads: 60 km/h Minimum speed on highways is 70 km/h unless told otherwise with signage. =========================================================================================== In other words is the main speed for trucks on Belgian highways 90 km/h and not 80.
  2. You're welcome. Once in a while I try to make simple tutorials for simple things in the game. Everybody always thinks that anybody else then themselves know how everything works, but that isn't always true. And therefore the tutorial. I'm glad you liked it.
  3. In this video I show people how they can make their own jobs through the Trucksbook dispatcher. Bear in mind that you need the dispatcher rank to be able to do this on the VTC's Trucksbook page. Trucksbook Dispatcher Tutorial
  4. First of all, I want to say that I appreciate the effort the whole staff is doing to bring back TMP to what it was once before. And I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants the SIM servers to be real simulation servers again! Unfortunately, the reality now, after a couple of days, tells us something completely different. Apparently, a lot of drivers (I don't even want to call them truckers) are not interested in driving in a simulation environment. They just speed, drive reckless, bump into one another and couldn't care less about the rules or even road laws. On one hand, I would say: "Let them be.", but on the other, I don't want that kind of drivers amongst us, real simulation truckers. And that is exactly what is happening now on SIM 1. When we still had EU2 and 1, us simulation truckers already had to move to EU1, which was the simulation server and therefore a logic thing to do. The moment I started trucking there, I didn't have many problems anymore with trolls. Now I started to truck on SIM 1 because it is a simulation server, is it not? So I was in the assumption that truckers should drive according to the rules and the road laws (and the extra details in that first part of the rules, which was needed), but apparently, I'm wrong. SIM 1 is now a server filled with trolls! There are already heated discussions on the TruckersMP Discord and Facebook group in which I talk about the problems on the current servers. Unfortunately, I'm constantly whining, according to some trolls. And maybe I am a bit whiny and salty, but only to accomplish something better out of what we already got with these new changes. When I read everything in those discussions, trolls tell us that they don't want to drive on the arcade servers because those are no collision. Basically, they are asking for a server on which they can do whatever they want and on which they can ram each other. Of course, this is totally against the "Road to simulation" idea, but what happens now is that those trolls are now all on the SIM 1 server. In those discussions, I now get to hear that we, simulation truckers, have to move to SIM 2 and maybe that is not a bad idea?! But then again I come to think: "How many times do we, simulation truckers, have to move out of the way for those trolls?" If I'm right, I thought that SIM 1 was a simulation server and not a TROLL server?! But okay, once more I'll yield and will start my trucking and streaming sessions on SIM 2 (on which nobody will be around of course, but okay). So, basically I want to accomplish 2 things here: I want to make a shoutout to all real simulation truckers who want to have a good simulation trucking experience and ask them to come to SIM 2! If we all do that, that server will be filled with good truckers in no time! Maybe the developers could alter the arcade servers a bit (or at least one) and give those trolls what they want: a server on which they can collide with one another while driving 150 km/h (so that the SIM servers get cleaned once more). Okay, I think this was what I wanted to say. Before people start complaining here as well about the fact that I'm whining again, know that I did write this in a feedback ticket to the project management team as well. So, why here as well? Because if you read the article "Road to simulation", you can clearly see at the bottom "discuss on the forum", and I want other truckers to be aware that not everybody likes or has to like those trolls who ruin every little bit of our simulation experience and all the efforts the staff is doing! Also, I do not do this to whine or to be salty. I just want things to be as they were meant to be by the developers and the whole staff of TruckersMP. Some people don't dare to speak their minds because they're afraid of repercussions from within the community (yes, unfortunately, some people already got very personal with me because of this whole matter) and others don't have the ability to explain themselves in a good way (which is totally okay). And that, ladies and gents, is why I'm taking this (maybe a bit too) serious. Thanks for listening.
  5. Nevermind. What a dumbass I am. Not awake yet I guess. I put the files in the single player mod folder. My bad. Everything is alright now.
  6. I don't know about you guys, but I've downloaded the three files, put them in the correct folder and still I don't have wintermod in game.
  7. How to get this wintermod working???

      WinterMod will start working when TruckersMP developers make it available, so that means that we'll be able to use that mod from the middle days of December or late until February.

      Please be patient. TMP is working on it :) 

  8. Same shit, different day. After having so much troubles downloading the previous update today it's the same with this late-night update. Every browser gives an error and so I can't download the MP. I can understand that the errors occur when the servers are full, but one day after????? Still overloaded servers???? It's not only Chrome. I have it in different browsers!!! And when you select KEEP, you get a corrupt file!!! You can't do anything with it.
  9. After several times of trying ... I've got the update!!!! A lot of problems on the servers I think. Thank you very much for the update!
  10. Nope. I just hit the download client button just like I do all the time.
  11. It doesn't work for me. First time that I have troubles downloading the MP. First of all I get a strange message in the browser with a lot of exlamation marks!!! But ... I can get the file. Second of all I get a zip file which I can't do anything with!!! This is the error I get: C:\Users\Ruben\Downloads\ets2mp_18100.zip: Checksum error in C:\Users\Ruben\Downloads\ets2mp_18100\Install ETS2MP.exe. The file is corrupt C:\Users\Ruben\Downloads\ets2mp_18100.zip: The archive is corrupt This is really the first time I encounter these problems. Oh yeah ... I tried downloading with Chrome and Internet Explorer.
  12. That was fast!!!! Thank you so much!!!
