  1. Favorite trailer in ATS or ETS2?

    I'm in favor of the new ADR tanker for Diesel/Oil/etc. which has really nice details and an animated handrail on top, that folds down once you hitch up to it.
  2. Guide To Surviving Calais-Duisburg Road

    I've driven 3~4 times on C-D road out of my 700+ jobs I've done in MP. I know why I went there fist time around (too see what traffic is like there, duh), can't really explain why I then drove on that road 2~3 times more after that.
  3. Whats your most used truck [ Veterans Only ] Topic

    Truck I've driven the most is the Merc New Actros, followed by Scania Streamline. Most likely both will be overtaken by the new Scania S in the coming months. I admit to liking newer generation trucks, although the good old Volvo FH1¸6 classic still has a special place in my personal fleet.
  4. The New Scania S & R Series

    I've been driving the new Scania S from day one when the beta came out, got around 21.000 km on it so far. I like the truck a lot, the interior is really nicely done - details, dash readabilty, interior lights. I'm not that much of a fan of the new front grille, in my opinion the one on the old-gen Scania looked much better. Mind you, the new headlights look really nice. Haven't really tested different engines on it - been driving with the 520 V8 all the time. I'm not much of a full-speed driver, so it pulls more than adequately for me. Engine sound for the V8 is ok, I actually like it more than the one on the old model. Overall I'm pleased with it, and once more tuning options become available, it will only get better.

  6. Anyone actually use the high beams as you would IRL?

    As when I drive IRL, I use high beams outside populated areas, except when coming to parts where there is street lighting provided. If I meet another driver in game, I do may best to remember to turn them off. Although I'll admit, sometimes I forget to do that. And as many have said before me, I just can't stand drivers in game who a) have every single accessory slot on the cab and bullbars 'decorated' with lights, use the high beams when driving in daylight and at night in cities, but they're partially forgiven, because most of those drivers are kids and teens without RL driving licence and have absolutely no clue when it's appropriate to use high beams. Now don't get me started on the beacon lights...
  7. What song are you currently listening to?

    Jazz, John Coltrane, below is just one of his albums I have in my playlist.
  8. Renault Range T coming to Euro Truck Simulator 2

    My Merc has well over 220.000 km on the clock and I have no intention of parking it, might give this Renault a try, once it's released. I've seen a few of them on the roads already, they don't look too shabby.
  9. The story behind multiplayer mod

    I first tried the MP mod for this great game in March of this year. A very interesting read, how the mod came to realization. Hat off to you Root and all the others who made the interaction with other virtual truckers possible. I wish you all the best at your new workplace at SCS and to the current devs for MP - keep up the good job! <3 the map blips.
  10. Fatal error

    MaarkP, it means that if enabled, it tells the game to use progressively lower quality LOD (Level of Detail) models for trucks that are further away from you, to reduce the workload for the GPU.
  11. Multiple players - Various offences

    1. Server: Europe #1 2. Date: 16-06-2015 3. Time: 18:26 (TZ: GMT+1) 4. Place: Rotterdam, road to Eurpoort 5. Perpetrator: See below 6. Steam URL: See below 7. Description: Yet another busy afternoon on the road to Eurpoort: MJ (ETS2MPId:133683) - as I was approaching the right turn after which the right lane ends, I slowed down to 40 mph, because I saw in the distance that an incident already took place. A few seconds after that, I found myself being overtaken by two players: Aleks - who overtook me the legal way on my left and MJ who came past me illegally on the hard shoulder. I was very surprised by the move MJ made, that I didn't start recording right at that moment. That's why I slowed the 1st second and a half of the video down. I know it's no direct evidence, but you can still see MJ driving at an angle on the right lane, this was because about 2 seconds earlier as MJ was overtaking me, he was driving at a high rate of speed and had to cut in front of me at a sharp angle, because the hard shoulder was ending. After this MJ then had to brake hard in order to avoid hitting the back of [A&M TRANS] ® ZUBER PL™, but as he still had plenty of momentum, he crashed into the railing. This also forced Aleks, who was driving behind him, to brake suddenly and swerve onto the right lane in order to avoid crashing into him. Borderline reckless driving from MJ. (All of this can be seen in the beginning of the video)Korn (ETS2MPId:385288) - insulting another player in local chat (0:21 in the video)peker (Steam URL | ETS2MPId:422431) - as I went around the right corner, I indicated and started moving into the left lane, because the right lane was ending. About half a second after I indicated my move, I spotted peker in my mirror, who was apparently in a great deal of hurry and promptly overtook me over the full line. He then obviously realized the gap between me and the truck in front of me was too small and his speed too high, so he calmly continued on driving the wrong way, which as we know is a no-no around Eurpoort. (0:32 in the video)repin_u (Steam URL | ETS2MPId:427988) - the move peker made must have inspired repin_u to do the same - going into queue overtaking mode. (0:45 in the video)CHECHEN-95-RUSSIA (Steam URL | ETS2MPId:375232) - repin_u was closely followed by CHECHEN-95-RUSSIA who also had the intention to get to the ferry ASAP, since he too was obviously in a great hurry.8.

  12. [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL - Multiple offences

    1. Server: Europe #1 2. Date: 15-06-2015 3. Time: 22:50 4. Place: Germany, Autobahn 10 (Berlin ring), just after junction for Szczecin 5. Perpetrator: [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL 6. Steam URL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/sumarka, ETS2MPId:406830 7. Description: I was delivering to Warszawa, driving on far right lane on Autobahn 10 (Berlin ring), approaching the junction for Szczecin. As my GPS indicated I should continue straight past this junction, I indicated and started moving to the middle lane. Just before I indicated, I noticed [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL in my mirrors catching up to me. As I changed to middle lane, [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL started honking at me. Just as I was driving past the junction, I saw [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL in my mirror move to the far right lane, appearing to be going off Autobahn 10 and towards Szczecin. A few seconds later, [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL insulted me in the local chat, and that's when I started recording the video below. I wanted to know why he did that, so just as I cleared the junction, I pulled over to the hard shoulder, stopped and turned on my hazard lights. As I was typing my questions to him, I saw my truck cab shudder, [MTS] JEŹDZIEC PL obvously stopped, turned around (almost certainly went the wrong way) came back on to Autobahn 10 and rammed my truck (ramming can be seen at 0:26s in the video). Because of his immature behaviour I'm reporting him. Had he just left it at the insult, I would've let it go. All in all, two breaches of server rules. 8. Video/Picture:
  13. baba king yiđit - Multiple offences

    1. Server: Europe #1 2. Date: 2015-06-07 3. Time: 11:29 4. Place: Germany, Autobahn 4, bridge over river Rehin 5. Perpetrator: baba king yiđit 6. Steam URL: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198200040930| ETS2MPId:410958 7. Description: I was just coming onto the bridge, when I saw lights from an oncoming truck, driving on my side of the road. I continued driving in my own far right lane, when baba king yiđit who was driving wrong way on the hard shoulder, suddenly turned into me and rammed me intentionally. All in all, two breaches of server rules. Video evidence below. 8. Video/Picture:
  14. [BornToDrive]SirbenyLP - Reckless driving

    1. Server: Europe #1 2. Date: 2015-06-05 3. Time: 22:24 4. Place: Netherlands, A1 highway, near junction to Köln/Liege 5. Perpetrator: [bornToDrive]SirbenyLP 6. Steam URL: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198178199558| ETS2MPId:299852 7. Description: After twice telling player Alexis to get into the right lane since he/she was constantly driving in the overtaking lane after I caught up, Alexis decided to pull over onto the hard shoulder. At that same moment I was being overtaken by player [GER] Marks|TT-AV on the overtaking lane and [bornToDrive]SirbenyLP who was driving on hard shoulder with clear intention to illegally overtake (1st offence). Now, since Alexis stopped on the hard shoulder, instead of braking due to him running out of space, [bornToDrive]SirbenyLP forced the right of way and cut in front of me (2nd offence), causing me to swerve onto the overtaking lane towards [GER] Marks|TT-AV. Fortunately, I did not cause [GER] Marks|TT-AV to overturn nor did I stop him entirely, so he was able to continue, so was I. But what [bornToDrive]SirbenyLP did, showed lack of judgement and knowledge of proper driving on the highway. 8. Video/Picture:
  15. llMuSaLLaTll - Multiple offences

    1. Server: Europe #1 2. Date: 2015-06-03 3. Time: 14:07 4. Place: Highway A35, junction for Strasbourg 5. Perpetrator: llMuSaLLaTll 6. Steam URL: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198196244473 | ETS2MPId:399956 7. Description: I was driving along A35 highway about to go past Strasbourg, when I noticed llMuSaLLaTll driving bobtail wrong way on the highway. Since I've been hit a few times by players driving the wrong way, I started to record with intention to report him on the forum. As I was nearing the 2nd junction for Strasbourg, there is a gap between the concrete barrier, through which llMuSaLLaTll drove and rammed me intentionally. All together two breaches of server rules. 8. Video/Picture:
