  1. Best place to spot the UFO is the rest area on SR 375, Nevada at nightime, also known as Extraterrestrial Highway, afterall, Area 51 is near this road. You may probably see it from nearby roads too, or they have added more of them, I think US 95 wasn't in the original release (before rescale), but SR 375 and its UFO easter egg are as old as ATS. And while you are there, you may also want to head to nearby gas station/rest stop just short way east on US 93 to spot something even more disturbing, this time at daytime.
  2. Agreed, though I don't use the mod at all, because it's an eyesore that still looks the same like years ago, winter should not look the same everywhere, every single road should not be covered in the same amount of snow everywhere you go. I made one delivery from southern Spain to Iceland and uninstalled it halfway through. You should definitely be careful around them, doubt they use that tag to warn others to not act dumb around them.
  3. That button's icon is misleading, all it does is to bring up menu where you can turn on/off various lights and adjust dashboard backlight intensity. I think the headlights are about right, they just need to be a bit more brighter. IRL, left and right headlight are aimed differently, LHD vehicles have left headlight aimed lower to not blind oncoming traffic and right headlight aims a bit higher and slightly to the right to better illuminate edge of the road and the road signs, of course, this is reversed on RHD (UK) vehicles. There isn't any way of adjusting beams of the headlights (aiming or intensity) without modding the game.
  4. Looks like TruckersMP has teamed up with DBus World to either fully or partially integrate or adapt it for their multiplayer platform. Dbus World is a free singleplayer mod that features a client (registration required) to allow "jobs" with buses, you can check that here: https://dbusworld.com/ The buses - there are 4 at the moment are freely downloadable from steam workshop, and usable even without the client: https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=2059323823 You can try them out anytime, in singleplayer or convoy mode.
  5. Congratulation to your first forum post. I was amused, reading it.
  6. I guess the mod messes with tyre grip, which is the only way to simulate something like "winter physics" with limitations of the game's engine. As a result it is buggy, unpredictable and not very realistic, especially when trying to stop even from very low speeds. I remember when it was enabled on TruckersMP (was it 2 years ago?), too many people were clearly unable to handle it, or they were messing around intentionally - just watch some "idiots on the road" vids from that time. It would be the same thing again, therefore, the physics mod should't return.
  7. When you don't have enough "idiots on the road" vids with lot of views and likes you won't get many players ...
  8. The CB radio is misplaced in 2021 DAF XG and XG+ cabs, clipping through the roof storage console .
  9. How fast are you driving over bumps? I see people on TMP going full speed over railroad crossings, speedbumps, or down the ramps at the Channel Tunnel. No wonder you take damage, if you drive too fast. I always slow down to 50km/h on bumpy roads, below 50km/h on railroad crossings, below 30km/h for speedbumps, boarding ferries at below 20km/h, including driving up and down the ramps at ports and Channel Tunnel, just to be safe. I think that is closer to reality, than blasting through everywhere and expecting nothing to happen The trailer can also hit the ground and/or truck in certain circumstances, particularly on ramps, usually longer and lower trailers are prone to this, slow down considerably to prevent it.
  10. I admit, I had this happen a few times, when windows just decides to unplug the usb inexplicably, fortunately with nobody around. Unfortunately software failure like this would be hard to prove, if this happens often, I would check the cable and replace it, because it might be faulty.
  11. Let me start with an example: You are driving at 90km/h down the 3-lane motorway. There is a person in the right lane driving at 80km/h, you switch to the centre lane to overtake them, which goes perfectly fine, but then, someone else comes from behind driving at 110km/h who starts overtaking in the left lane, they swerve into you as all 3 are side by side, sending you into the crash with the other. That is what I would call hitting somene by accident, situation that is out of your control and you are a victim of a collision caused by someone else, so saying sorry in that scenario is meaningless. If you would get banned for that and you had you own video evidence, you could appeal your ban and have it removed, that's what appeal system is for, not becasue you said sorry to someone.
  12. Most people mention arcade games here, but hey I also liked GT Legends and other SimBin games like GTR2 or Race07 because how realistic they feel. I remember some of those classic overpowered cars in GT Legends were almost impossible to drive.
  13. Promods Iceland has many and much more difficult dirt roads, compared to Kirkenes quarry road, even snowed roads are more challenging, but it died pretty quickly, even though you can use doubles there. And it's probably for the better, because Kirkenes is full of people who think it's dirt rally or something. ATS on TMP is dead and it's very unlikely Promods will change anything about it. I will just stick to singleplayer where I can enjoy other mods as I prefer driving for long distances on open roads over being confined to one or two slow bumpy roads. Promods Canada is only about 120MB file download and servers aren't very busy right now. It's a rather small addition to the map, about half the size of the Washington state, which is required along with Oregon. If you own both, there is little reason to not try it out.
  14. If by rank you mean driver rating, it isn't driver level and it doesn't mean leveling up always increase driver rating. Maximum rating is 10 but level/experience is not capped. When you see message that an employee leveled up, it means they gained experience to level up to earn a skill point which is automatically assigned, depending on individual employee setting. Driver rating only reflect how "skilled" a driver is overall - the more skills points they have, higher the rating is, also when all skills are balanced, rating will be higher. Once all skills are maxed (level 36) a rating will be 10 and you won't see a message about that driver leveling up anymore. Drivers also don't "work" while you are not in the game anymore because of changes to time synchronization, so no more instant money from your employees when you log in. This also means it takes longer for emloyees to level up.

    Cars

    You are talking about lane splitting - overtaking slow moving or stopped traffic between lanes moving in the same direction, or filtering - slowly moving through stopped traffic, a common maneveur executed by motorcycle riders. As far as I know it is legal around EU and in some US states like California, however this is only for motorcycles and only when the lanes go in the same direction. Doing this in the car, and between lanes which go in opposite directions or on the motorway at high speeds (between lanes or utilizing right or left shoulder) is illegal, even for motorcycles, and deffinitely against the TMP rules.
  16. Sorry, didn't know photomode can't capture it, I guess then the only option for you is to use developer camera (0) instead. However you can try searching on SCS forums, I found this topic with link to a mod: https://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=185799. Not sure if it still works, or you can try making one yourself, but obviously it will only work in singleplayer.
  17. Seriously? The view finder does not get captured on the photo if you use the capture button. Must be your own mistake to use F12 screenshot hotkey.
  18. That's because it is different experimental version, and TruckersMP can support only one vesrion of the game which is synchronized on all servers. It's up to SCS software to merge the two version and officially support VR, you are asking the wrong developers.
  19. Picture is taken on Promods map, but this part is not touched at all, and it's a DLC expansion. The location is not exactly marked on the map but isn't far from a city. So, here goes
  20. I believe this is Tórshavn (Faroe Islands).
  21. Except, the game is Euro Truck Simulator and the TMP server where it takes place is Simulation server. Yes, it's just a game, but its aim is to simulate real life driving. Of course sh.. happens irl too, but what happens on this road in the game belongs to different kind of driving game - like GTA, Wreckfest or Carmageddon. Last time I checked, there aren't any public roads around Europe without rules, why should it be any different in a simulation game on the server dedicated to simulation?
  22. What the heck? Looks like Bolloré Bluebus SE from Dbus World mod package: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2059323823
  23. Yes, 2-3 minutes is about right, depending on direction, becasue there are 3 phases, including protected left turn phase. Imo, that left turn phase has little purpose, becasue there is very little need to take that turn. But it's there because of the type of traffic lights used. I would suggest to replace the traffic lights with simpler, two phase type, which would cut down waiting times by 1/3. The second set of traffic lights was removed for the same reasons - nobody needs to take left turn from the motorway, everybody heads right, and hardly any traffic comes from the south (that would be me on a rare occasion should I have business in the ciry or I need to get to the ferry) which would interrupt flow of traffic for the left turn towards bloody C-D road.
  24. No, I do not want repair shops on the highways. You ask for offline modification, why don't you use one of those readily available "no damage" mods?
