Good day to my fellow truckers,
I am new to TruckersMP and so far it's a Gem I am glad to have found. It's fun to drive through europe and see others driving with me on the streets. There's a lot of people greeting me while passing by, which is a thing you normally will not see in most multiplayer based games.
However, I do noticed some toxic behavior, a hell lot of reckless driving, speeding, crashing, lazy ppl not using their mirrors/indicators etc, which is something that starts to hit my wallet. When I do a contract to bring stuff from A to B, I always drive within the boundaries of street rules. I mean driving carefully and always obey to street signs and signals. But there's a lot of people recently which are driving in a way that constantly damages my truck seriously because they are speeding and crashing into me or in other things due to their speeding, and I crash into them often when they crash into objects.
Is that normal? I mean I don't mind ppl speeding, but reckless overtaking (or undertaking on the slip road) which results in crashing into my truck is something I don't want to have happening to me. There was one situation yesterday, I did overtake another truck correctly and indicated right to get back into the right lane on a street with two lanes for both directions. Then, the truck behind me started to speed up and then he undertake me on the hard shoulder. He then wanted to get back onto the normal lane way too early and crashed into my truck. While he did that maneuvre he honked his horn like crazy. My truck and my cargo got badly damaged, resulting in a los of 50% of the money and a bill for repairing my truck and trailer ofr another 60000€. I did a 3500km hauling which is a long run of about 3 realtime hours and in the end I paid more then I was rewarded.
Also, nobody really cares about traffic lights, honking their horns and calling me idiot for waiting at a red light, especially when they are not able to overtake me. I get constantly crashed into from people not stopping at red lights or stopp signs! Also, a lot of ppl are overtaking in the cities where you shoud only drive 50kph. I wittnessed some really crazy maneuvres just to overtake someone in the city, and when it's really busy, they crush into others coming from the opposite direction because they can't get back onto their lane due to someone next to them.
I really suggest that the speed limit of 90kph should be applied again! And, can I report people driving in a reckless manner, even if no one gets crashed? I don't want to spend 200000€ every day just to repair everything again and again and again.
As I said, I love this Multiplayer and will continue to play on your servers, but I wanted to share you my experience after 3 days of playing with you guys! And, I will keep a video recording program running to save the most craziest maneuvres from other people.
So should you see Lindsey McTavish on the roads, behave!
P.S. I play on Sim 1!
