  1. to be honest I'm saddened by this update, I mean the whole shake up about bans and punishment lengths is a step in the right direction and a positive step towards a better future for TMP, my concerns are the changes to save editing and what you can and cannot do now. I mean, the rules as they it stood were pretty clear cut and for someone like me who enjoys building edited trucks and trailers, you knew what was allowed and what wasn't. now you can pretty much do no type of save edit at all for trailers and very minimal changes to trucks thanks to the new rules. as said
  2. In my opinion, what you said could be deemed as a insult or being demeaning to a fellow player, so the moderator/manager acting well within their rights under TMP rules. You have to bear in mind that just because something to you doesn't seem to be an insult or abusive, to others it could be taken in that way. Its why if someone does something that causes you a problem, you don't react by calling them names, however light and meaningless that name might seem to you, to them it might be quite demeaning. In that situation, you should ideally either not react or make a jok
  3. To be honest, the promods server suffers from the same problem as the simulation servers, there’s one area of the map that’s particularly busy, ProMods it’s kirkenes, sim servers it’s Calais and Duisburg, which leaves the vast majority of the map quite desolate and quiet. ProMods also suffers because yo need all the current map DLCs in order to play, which is fine for those of us who have owned the game a long time or have simply kept up to date with DLCs, but newer players or those who can’t afford or don’t want the DLCs can’t play. As long as you either stick around Norwa
  4. Honestly, I would like to see reworks to the base map areas, much like in Germany, along with more cities/town in these older parts of the map, but also I’d like to see there works to expand to include the “going east” DLC map areas seeing as they are the first “DLC” areas added to ETS2. Also I would like to see more DLC areas that expand into pretty much all directions much like ProMods does. As for Trucks, I’d like to see more new gen and old gen trucks added in, along with tuning packs for Volvo, MAN and Renault, also include more variations of trucks, such as more LGV/fixe
  5. For me I'm kind of in the middle of both sides of this argument, On one hand having a capped limit of only 68MPH (a rather annoying number IMO for those who use MPH) is an advantage because it helps thin traffic out a bit instead of everyone seemingly liking to hug each others bumpers at high speed, also it does make it feel more realistic in a way, but on the flip side, the crash rate is the pretty much the same before and after the limiter was implemented, the same bad driving still occurs no matter what speed you're capped at, I mean, traffic can be crawling at 10MPH and someone will still
  6. To be fair, it’s actually quite common to see/have full size articulated trucks driving through “residential” areas, not everywhere in the world has a dirty great big huge motorway carving through the heart of town, sometimes large businesses need large vehicle and said vehicles will have to squeeze down narrow roads. Also ETS is a delivery simulator in a sense because you’re move items from one location to another which is a delivery. As for residential roads and delivery points being in a thing in ETS? Technically in ProMods there are some... interesting company locations around
  7. Honestly it depends on which youtubers you watch. Almost all the “funny moments” youtubers I watch drive with respect for the rules, one or two might do some, shall we say, questionable manoeuvres at times, but in my opinion there’s no malicious intent behind said actions. Thats the key that people forget, just because someone does something that isn’t strictly by the book, doesn’t mean they are a troll or, in this case, out to get more views etc, as long as there’s no malicious intent, I.e purposely forcing other drivers off the road, intentionally brake checking in populated area
  8. It honestly depends on the situation at the time, if someone wrecks in front of me and I stop but the person behind me doesn't, I wont report them because what's the point? if it was necessary to report this type of incident, then every person who misjudges their braking or hits someone who lags out in front of them would end up being reported and banned, lets face it, that's a lot of work load for admins to have to deal with and a lot of wasted time that could be put to use actually controlling and stemming the flow of trolling and general rule breaking that we see daily. But if
  9. If I had to pick one truck and one truck only that wasn’t my normal go to truck, the new Gen Scania S, (because it’s super common and although I use it a lot, it’s not my all time personal favourite scania) it would have to be a 625hp, 6x4 taglift 2014 Mercedes actors, mostly because, although I’m not a huge fan of the dash layout for right hand drive, it has plenty of pulling power for any type of load, is quite stable at speed and with the taglift up, can perform dirt doughnuts without much hassle.
  10. I totally agree with you, although for me I cant have tab open for more than a few seconds before I lose almost all my frames for some unknown reason, its just that there are certain circumstances where even having the tab menu open and go by the distance from your current location to determine the troll, doesn't work, its okay on say a motorway or quiet back road with very little traffic, but in busier areas, where most trolling tends to happen nowadays, its much harder because at any one time you can have more than 2 people within a short distance of you.
  11. Honestly, this kind of behaviour has been around in TMP for years, they come flying at you at full speed, ram you, then before you have chance to even catch their name tag they disappear, either alt F4 or just reloading a save so that they can continue trolling. Sadly, short of having name tags appear in the mirrors or the game automatically logging the players pinfo when they make contact with you, there’s not much that can be done to counteract this. What I would suggest is that if you get rammed by someone who instantly disappears, just pull off to the side and dev
  12. For me, it depends on where I intend to drive. highly populated areas, a single trailer is best because cargo weight is lower and you have more manoeuvrability in situations that require quick reactions, but singles get super boring when that’s all you’ve driven for years. outside of populated areas I will run either a; b double, because it’s super manoeuvrable and is easy to park once you understand what to do, a standard double (pup trailer at the rear behind the main trailer) because it’s more challenging to reverse and I find it more fun to drive around Ge
  13. Singleplayer or not, it’s still a game, as long as you are not breaking the rules, I.e, not ramming people, not being useless traffic, not driving the wrong way, not excessively save editing to the point that your hit box is 2 lanes wide, not impersonating an admin etc etc, that does not mean you HAVE to play like it’s a 1:1 ratio against the real world. Like I’ve said before, an im getting tired of saying, every player who joins TMP should NOT have to play in 1 of 2 playstyles, people should be allowed to play how they want, WITHIN REASON, if you want to play 100% realistically, g
  14. @Glada_Laxen Technically ETS2 and ATS are not true to real life, so trying to make a multiplayer that goes against the basic principles in the base game is wrong, I mean come on, if the game was really a true sim we wouldn’t be able to disable speed limiters or traffic fines or be able to adjust suspension stiffness and truck stability. The thing that a hat a lot of people get wrong is that they expect every player to fall into one of two categories, either someone who strictly does the exact speed limit and does everything quite literally by the book 100% of the time or someone i
  15. The thing is, why should one admin be super strict, yet another will allow certain things, shouldn’t it be a uniform thing where if x incident happens and y incident happened as a result, then z punishment is justified, it should never be oh, admin number one will give a 2 month ban for, lets say, ramming someone, yet admin number two will just kick the person in the same scenario, it should be one OR the other, clearly defined in the rules for all to see. Hence why I said trigger happy, because it shouldn’t be admin discretion on what punishment is given, the discretion should be whethe
