  1. I would say that implementing protest scenarios into a new role play server is completely unnecessary and is in fact logistically challenging to implement due to the layout of different cities on the map, this is due to the need to make sure that protest scenarios do not completely block access points to critical services in the city, such as service stations and depots. It might be more feasible as a random road event in SP, but this would be something that would have to be done by SCS more than TruckersMP in any situation if it was to ever happen and again, it's not really necessary to implement in my opinion.
  2. When I drive around the map, I occasionally tend to play the BBC World Service as some of the topics talked about mix in quite nicely with the surrounding environment in some areas of the map, especially near high-population areas. But on more casual SP trips I might choose to play some relaxing music from one of the other radio stations I have available.
  3. I don't think a connection between the ETS2 and ATS areas of the map would be possible since realistically there is no scheduled passenger ferry service between the United States and Europe, so unless you had the option of shipping the truck over in a container, or the connection from Russia to Alaska (and hence to the rest of the ATS world) gets built IRL, I don't see much sense in connection of the two games as far as SCS goes.
  4. I would say that the introduction of the ProMods server as well as the important rule changes found in Road to Simulation #1 and #3 have contributed to a slight decrease in C-D traffic as well as contributing to a relatively equal balance of players in high population areas across the TMP network - C-D obviously and the Kirkenes quarry. The effects brought from a slight decrease in traffic on the Calais-Duisburg road have also resulted in an increase in traffic in other parts of Germany and Belgium, particularly in Liege, Hamburg, Berlin and Frankfurt as well as many of the roads leading to those aforementioned places (and some of those cities are accessible on the motorways not far from C-D), and this has bought some of the problems that the C-D road is currently facing to other cities outside of the immediate vicinity of the road.
  5. Well, the simple answer is that there are no restrictions on where HCT's can go in accordance with the TruckersMP rules, so therefore users attempt to drive to the Kirkenes quarry with HCT's to see if their vehicle can get there without getting stuck. This occasionally results in blockages along the way as well, especially around the dam area near the quarry itself.
  6. Former Love Island presenter Caroline Flack has died at the age of 40... 😭

     

    I honestly feel so sad to see the lives of previously well-known personalities suddenly end like this... and I give my condolences to Caroline's family who are going through this very difficult time today.

  7. I have a little query about this topic: Following the website update on 31/01 which disabled the ability to contact Project Management directly on Feedback, could this news post be updated to reflect on what feedback category should potential partners contact via to offer their ideas?
  8. Arrived just in time to catch the sunrise in Leipzig...

      Thank you mate :)

  11. I've just been to January's official convoy, and I have to say that the route that has been planned has been quite well thought, with wide and varied scenery and width of roads, and overall, I really enjoyed being at the convoy and meeting so many people that I know of from my time in the team. 

     

    I hope to return to another official convoy when the next one comes up, and hopefully with less lag on my end. 

  12. To be honest, if you mean to talk about it demographically, I haven't really spotted any players from Guyana on my journeys or indeed anyone from the non-Latin South American countries, so for me it is indeed a rarity to see a Guyanese player here in the TruckersMP community.
  13. Congratulations on getting promoted to Community Manager!

      Thank you Positive! I hope you're keeping well m8.

  14. I generally tend to use first-person view when actively driving 95% of the time, and I use the third person view (Cam 3) when unloading/loading as it's the easiest way for me to handle unloads, however when I am in cities, I do also occasionally tend to switch over to Camera 0 to get the idea of what goes on in the surrounding area outside of the depot where I am parked.
  15. To answer the question on why ETS2MAP is outdated, ETS2MAP is currently maintained by persons who are developers on this project, and since the TruckersMP developers have to dedicate an increased amount of time towards the TMP project it may take a while before the map on ets2map.com is updated.
