  1. Another J-Spec driver! I drive a DAF XF 105 J-Spec. I use that because it has more tuning options (coloured grilles/etc.) than other trucks. Scanias aren't bad but they're too used as you said; Volvos don't have that many customisations, so I don't use them.
  2. Definitely Iveco; it has never been updated (so it's very noticeable it uses an old model with old textures) nor there is a truck tuning pack leaving it with very few customisation. MAN is more used due to the newer Euro 6 version and Renault is definitely more popular than Iveco too.
  3. It's been from ETS1 that I've not driven in Iberia. It'll be fun driving from Lisbon to Helsinki or to Istanbul. I'm really looking forward to this dlc. And I hope to see a few more people around since in Black Sea DLC area I haven't met a lot of truckers...
  4. I've noticed huge frame drops and some weird graphical things in ATS after the update; I can't tell for ETS2 as the version I'm using is not supported yet. As for the bugs: some wheels of the trailers of other players are low poly and low definition, other are not (weird) and the rolling bushes are lagging and low quality as well as the trailer wheels. I've experienced frame drops in the cities (small ones too, where there isn't much to load): I was continously fluctuating between 60 to 30 fps inside the cities (with instant frame drops up to a 10 fps loss), creating a pretty annoying effect.
  5. More than 4 years of waiting, but it was well worth it. I was sure you guys would add ProMods, thank you!
  6. 1.What phone are you using now? A 4,5 years old Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo. Battery is pretty bad and there are some glitches sometimes. 2.If you change your phone what would you buy for your next phone? Idk. I like the S3 Neo, but it's very outdated by today standards (lacks ram/memory and cpu power compared to new phones). I like having a physical button for home and two "not Android os" touch buttons to handle stuff, but nowadays on high end phones is hard to find them. Between what we have now on the market, I'd choose a Samsung Note 9.
  7. I've just come across Infinite Truckers, but I can't find any information about them on their website, nor on their forum, since I'm not registered to it. Are they competing with TMP? Could someone explain what are they doing/offering?

    1. ScaniaFan89


      Yes they are claiming to be better than tmp & believe in being open about the goings on behind closed doors, claim to have promods servers & a bmw police car thats licensed! Join the discord though & you will soon find its full of ego & power abuse, staff are rude for no reason. If you ask for proof it even exists you will just get told " soon! "

      It seems a nice mod tho. I mean: ProMods servers… That's not bad (if they are able to do it).

      And just to know: is TMP against Infinite Trucking in any form or viceversa?

    3. ScaniaFan89


      You would be best asking @Aestrial that one, simple answer is no they are not against it but he can give you a better detailed answer ;)

  8. Well if trolls don't understand that a server which is specifically named "SIMULATION" is for simulation, they'll be banned for not respecting the simulation rules, I don't think it's difficult to comprehend Log into "SIMULATION" servers just to cause mayhem? A well deserved ban is right there for you. I can say from personal experience that since the first "Road to simulation" update, the situation got much better (Idk about C-D since it's years that I don't drive there due to truck carnage); some months ago I tried switching from EU#01 to EU#02 to give it a second chance: litterally 5 minutes after I logged in, I got rammed twice, I reported both the players in-game and nothing happened. A few weeks ago I was playing in SIM#01, a driver made an illegal u-turn on the highway, rammed me and laughed about that in chat: I reported him and 10 minutes later he got banned. I recently saw one of Speedy_TMP livestreams and he clearly said: "Drive on C-D at your own risk, I will reject all of the C-D area reports."; I immediately thought that was the right thing to do, since C-D is complete madness and people go there just to get rammed over and over and spam reports. This behaviour just makes the in-game report system useless since it's flooded with, in fact, useless reports… But you can't rely only on one admin, the community should understand that creating reports in C-D is pointless (and basically going on C-D all day long without a real reason) and makes "real" reports go in the background.
  9. I'm ok with the update, since I respect all the rules, so the speed limiter is not a problem for me as I don't go over 80 km/h. Game moderators play the role of the police in game, and as in reality, police vehicles go faster when they're in service, so I think that to add realism the higher speed for them is a nice touch. I think most of the players still don't understand that TMP is based on simulation games, so you should play it respecting the road rules, sounds simple right? If you want to race with your truck, just go in the arcade servers.
  10. @developers/team I had to update the TMP launcher and both the clients for ETS2 and ATS. Since then the SCS and ETS2MP logo are lagging when starting the game and I suddenly have lag spikes (never experienced them before) in-game. Is there something wrong with the TMP or I have to reinstall the game?

      Our development team is already analyzing the motives that are causing this! I ask only that you wait! Soon this will be corrected!

  11. Hey all, just a question regarding the game rules: is the double trailer restriction removed? I'm asking this because I knew there was some sorta of "kick barrier", but I didn't find any information here in the forums nor in the official rules, so I'm asking the community.

      Yes, the zone was removed.

    3. Alex [ITA]

      Thank you both! I won't go on C-D with doubles, I avoid that area as it's a complete mess, I was wondering about this rule as I was in Hannover with doubles and I didn't want to go against the rules or something :)

    4. IethaI


      No problem :)


  12. Wait a minute: where did the light theme go? Is the website in dark theme only now?

    1. Lasse




      We have changed the default theme of our forum.

      You can still change back to the light theme if you want to. Just scroll to the bottom of the page and select the white theme:



      Dark theme just feels better ;)


      Happy trucking!

    2. Alex [ITA]

      Alex [ITA]

      Thank you! For some reasons there wasn't the theme button before :blink:

    3. Lasse


      Yeah, we fixed it ;)

  13. Oh well, I can't attend TFM convoy because Steam decided to update ETS2 even if automatic updates for the game are disabled :angry:

    Thank you Steam, always on time!

      Hallo Alex!

      You could just downgrade your Game to a supported Version :)

    3. Alex [ITA]

      Alex [ITA]

      I don't want to mess with that. I'll wait the supported MP version.

    4. Linciano


      I never had any issues with downgrading the Game, but this is totally up to you of course :)

  14. I've rarely posted in this forum since last year or so, but I think I have to say something on this... I like the new idea for the servers and let me explain why; I like to play ETS2 (and ATS) as they were intended to be played: simulation games, not race games, for that, there is Assetto Corsa. I appreciate the fact that you've divided the servers, because it's probably 2 and a half years that I no longer play on the now old EU2 because of the total madness there was around the entire map (not only C-D) with trucks flying past you or directly crashing in your trailer and so on; mainly for that reason, I was only playing on EU1 and for some time (1 month to now) on EU3, since there were far better players thatn on EU2, but still wasn't as empty as EU1. Now for the first time I can play the game seeing someone more often (many times on EU1 played for 1/2 hours without seeing a player, which was a bit boring) that isn't a troller and that won't surely crash into you. I appreciate the fact that you can drive the Skoda car in Sim servers (with a speed limiter ) as I've never actually driven it since 2016. Finally, I just want to say to all the players that like to go to Calais-Duisburg road just to fly at 170Km/h that you have not one, but two arcade servers to use without the problem of being banned for reckless driving (since there are no collisions) and without annoying other players that have to use that road to make a delivery. Last thing: "Duplicate parts are now permitted, however abusing this by adding an excessive amount is not allowed (see below)" (taken from first post) What does it mean? I think I've written everything I had to say with this post.
