  1. Again, it is not a dev problem. See my above post please.

    30 Reports Right

    I think it's important to consider the severity of offences. At any given point in time, I could witness dozens and dozens of rule violations when driving on the route from Calais to Duisburg. That's not to say however that I will report every single one of them. Some of them are silly mistakes, often with no malice behind them. I personally believe that reporting these errors are petty and say more about the reporting party than the accused. There is a level of responsibility associated with reporting players, including not getting people banned just because you can. On the flip side, if you are unlucky enough to find yourself in a drive that has 30+ major rule violations in it, you may find you don't need to report all of those players. Wait for a few hours and check the website reports system. You may find that the player has already been banned and as such you can save yourself a report. Keep in mind that if they drive badly in front of you, they've probably done it infront of countless other players too.
  3. This issue is not a TruckersMP problem as you think. It's actually your hardware that's causing the problem. Allow me to explain. I also have this issue when trying to spawn in Calais, Duisburg or any other busy area (such as an events server). My network is perfect and typically always is. The problem is this: When you are spawning into a busy area, your game has to load in several trucks, all with specific colours, paintjobs, rims, trailers, locations, speeds, direction of travel. It has to do this immediately, otherwise the chance of a collision is high. Contrast this to spawning in a quiet area, or spawning in singleplayer, where the AI traffic doesn't spawn in immediately, but after the initialization of the world. If you have a CPU that isn't capable of doing this effectively, then your game freezes. TMP in turn acknowledges your freeze, sees this as a collision risk and subsequently removes you from the game. If you're looking to spawn in Calais, but you see this message, I highly recommend spawning in a nearby city instead and driving there. It will give your hardware more time to process the madness of the city.
  4. Nice to be getting back into TMP after quite a while away from it all. 🙂

    Do you rec?

    I record using shadowplay in instances where I need to submit a report for something. I'm fortunate however that I seldom need to do this, even in very busy areas such as Calais or Duisburg. Am I just lucky? One thing that is a bug-bear of mine though is the coined phrase "Rec ban", which has come about as simply a cheap way of threatening other players with a report. It's even made it's way into some people's TMP tags, just sitting there as an ever-lingering intimidation to those around them. What makes this doubly troubling is that a great many players who happen to utilize this phrase — either in chat or in their tag — are typically not recording at all! But yes. I do record in-game when needed.
  8. They'll just have to wait!


  9. I've been on a little absence of late, getting to see my girlfriend for the first time in months since coronavirus struck. It's been a great little break from gaming to see her and it's been such a tremendous relief.


    That said, it is nice to have been in the server again tonight, and it's been wonderful getting welcomed to the TMP staff team by a wonderful bunch of people. Thank you to all who have given their best wishes.


  10. Welcome to the team 👌

  11. A big thanks to everybody who has congratulated me tonight. I'd love to send thanks to you all but the forum is now frowning heavily at me, so rest assured that I appreciate your messages and love. :)

  12. Congratulations!

  13. Welcome and Congratulations! ❤️
