  1. I guess I'm one of those who like to make social media posts about making changes in their lives while no one really needs to hear it. I just wanted to make this somehow "official" so this is mainly a post for myself. Anyway, I'm leaving the truck sims behind. They're the games I always return to and spend too much of my time on while neglecting to make a future for myself.


    See you out there! 💚 (Or on Discord. You ain't getting rid of me there. Well, not without blocking me.)

    1. Caernage


      Completely understandable, we will miss you. Hope the best for you in the future!

      Completely understand but we will miss you 😭 😢 Best of luck for your future ❤️

  2. I've been playing ETS2 since 2015 and my PC has remained quite unchanged. Actually, I did play two months or so with and older setup before I built my current PC. I have no recollection of what components that PC had. Mobo: ASUS Z170-A CPU: Intel i7-6700K @ 4.5 GHz (was overclocked @ 4.8 GHz, but that became unstable) GPU: Nvidia GTX 750 Ti RAM: 16 GB DDR4 Storage: 128 GB SSD, 2 TB HDD I've added a 500 GB SSD (OS drive), a couple of second hand HDDs and changed my GTX 750 Ti to RTX 2060 Super.
  3. For a bug report, don't mind me. 👀

  4. Happy birthday, McGlynn! 🍻

  5. I would guess it was done on the side when preparing for the alternating vehicles feature, hence the timing. This is just my speculation, though.
  6. Hello Dubbeledraaideur! When you create a report a 2-minute demonstration is saved that can be viewed by the game moderator who claims the report, as is said in this development update: It is as if the events that happened earlier played in front of the game moderator live. I hope this answers your question! Regards, DerAmpelmann TruckersMP Game Moderator
  7. Happy birthday, mate! Don't consume too much the you know what. 🍻 💚

  8. Psst... Just paste the link in your post and it should automagically embed:
  9. I'm afraid your truck fails to meet many criteria specified in the topic rules.
  10. I want to apologize how I said I would label everyone who drives in the C-D area the same and the comparison I used of moderating the area. I understand that many of you drive there just because there's a lot of traffic and you're more likely to see familiar faces. I loved that aspect of the road myself some years ago, but got frustrated of all the trouble there is and I doubt there's any other solution to them than the road no longer existing. In my position I should be able to argue politely, not end up insulting anyone. In the end, the things should argue, not the people. I am genuinely sorry. The problem is that we do not find new people that are a good fit to become a Game Moderator from an endless resource. Our community has a limited size, probably one-third of it doesn't meet the requirements, a fraction of the community leave an application during a recruitment and a fraction of those applications are good enough for the applicant to be considered to the role. You need to be able to speak decent English and ready to devote time for the project. You cannot have many punishments in your history, because how are you supposed to enforce the rules you were unable to follow yourself? Even after someone is chosen to become a Game Moderator, down the line the path can get a dead-end due to failing the training, as you may have seen happen a few times, should you follow the team changes thread on our forums. Then out of those who get through the training, from being a Report Moderator to a Game Moderator, some quit in the matter of months after realizing it wasn't what they wanted or they do not have the time it takes. If we have, for example, 10 new people taken in from a recruitment, it can be that only half of them are left after couple of months. If we were to loosen the requirements, it would probably just lead to more of them being removed from the team or leaving in the matter of months from being recruited. Then there are of course long time team members leaving as well. Yet somehow we have managed to keep a slow growth in the size of the Game Moderation Team the past few years. I just highly doubt there's a way to increase the pace of the growth, not without setbacks.
  11. That was a thing a long time ago, but it was removed, because players did not like it.
  12. I think you missed a number there. No wait, you didn't. My bad! Carry on.
  13. I delivered some hope with @Noxii of all people. :kappa:






    We got there sans damage, so perhaps we aren't that hopeless drivers after all.

  14. Keep in mind that this topic was made before double trailers. Back then there was only high power cargo back that really required more horsepower from your truck. This is more about hauling the average loads than heavy machinery and such. If you want to do jobs that require more power, you can always have a truck dedicated for that. In real life you rarely do several different jobs with one truck.
  15. Just some pictures I edited.



















  16. Different continent, different trucks, same guys. I drove some gifts across Colorado with @Noxii

      Well it sure is a nice truck to drive, same as Mack, regarding Western Star, I am going to wait for sleeper version of the truck, the one in ATS now just doesnt work for me... Welcome back banhammer Ampelmann :D

    3. DerAmpelmann


      I have my trucks for designated line of work, so I could always get Western Star with day cab for construction, mining or similar jobs.

    4. antrax737


      Sure, I tend to have somewhat designated trucks aswell, but due to lack of short haul jobs in both games I gave up on construction long time ago, would be fun if the games would simulate that kind of jobs a bit more, now it's long haul focused in my opinion. I just fail to explain to myself why I have to take gravel from different quarry each time or, why I have deliver gravel 300km away... Anyway, have fun mate!

  17. @TurklerRSJust because you don't personally like the trend does not mean the topic should be unpinned. This is a thread that has been up for a long time and keeps getting new content. It deserves the pin.
  18. This year has been quite eventful for me, only outside of this community. I served my year as a conscript which didn't leave much time for TMP adventures. I'm happy to be back here with you all to see what the next year brings.


    Merry Christmas and a happier new year! 💚

      Thank you 💚

  22. Took my bulldog out for a walk.
  23. Hello! I find that the rain probability tends to malfunction in TMP, summer mod or not. Once it starts raining it rarely stops before the next time you connect to the server. I don't know why it's that way, so when I get enough of the rain I just put the rain probability all the way down to disable it altogether. This is not the ideal solution, but I hope I could help. Regards, DerAmpelmann
  24. I pieced together a small video of yesterday's TMP6 convoy. Out of TruckersMP's 6 years I'm grateful to have taken part in nearly 5. This community and game means the world to me. 💚


    Let's have another fantastic year of TruckersMP!
