  9. Empfiehlst du hier das Brechen der Regeln? (Siehe §2 In-Game Rules) Wenn jemand 80 in einer 80 fährt hat er jedes Recht dazu, und wie Joao bereits erwähnt hat, hast du dich dem anzupassen. Und wie in deinem Beispiel, Duisburg ist generell sehr voll, da können einige Spieler durchaus Lags haben und deshalb auch langsamer als 50 fahren. Hast du in dem Fall aber nicht getan. Weder hast du bei gelber Ampel und niedriger Geschwindigkeit verzögert, noch bist du mit knapp 30 kmh hinter deinem Vordermann, kurz vor seinem Ziel, der Werkstatt, hinterhergefahren. und damit §2 verletzt, womit der Kick gerechtfertigt ist. (auch wenn das schon geklärt wurde). Und die eine Sache ist genau das was falsch ist und die du anscheinend nicht verstehst. Nein, er fährt einfach nur noch langsamer weil du ihn überholst und er vermutlich Lags hat. Und soeben sehe ich auch dass du gebannt wurdest und noch bis 30 Juli gebannt bist. Anscheinend fährst du tatsächlich doch nicht so angepasst wie du behauptest. Vorausschauendes und passives Fahren solltest du dir aneignen, dann passiert dir so etwas auch nicht.
  10. Doesn't need to be done during an event. WOTr usually generates a lot of short jobs if you have your preferred job length set to a low value. So it is/was easy to get a couple of sub 50km/30mi jobs which can be done quite fast (around 5 to 10 minutes per job). And lets not forget that you can still teleport to other cities if you want to take short jobs, but your current city does not have any short distance offers.
  11. Nein, weil der Gesamtverbrauch deines Systems niemals in der Gegend von 600 Watt ist. Trotzdem kann die Grafikkarte Spulenfiepen aufweisen
  12. The article is from May 2019 and the project itself was already open to use in July/August 2018. But they had to stop it again after a few weeks due to issues with the poles holding the electric wiring. Also, as the article describes, there are a few electric highways in other countries such as Sweden and Norway as well. I think the correct term is "electric trucking" as you are referring this to the future of trucks on roads and not locomotives which run on rails. Anyway, the only reason to cause a shift away from Diesel powered engines is when electric powered trucks (no matter if battery or hydrogen) are getting cheaper in the short and long term operations. This is also the reason why you see newer trucks (and engines) coming to the market. Those trucks are simply more efficient than their predecessors and therefore better for your business. While electric trucks can be cheaper due to lower maintenance and fuel costs, their upfront cost is too high and their maximum distance per charge is too low for National or even international long-distance trucking. Also worth to note and to compare: https://www.mercedes-benz.com/en/vehicles/trucks/eactros-heavy-duty-electric-truck/ (*couldn't find any other manufacturer link with an electric distribution or hevy class truck*) The truck can be recharged in 2 to 11 hours. (20-150kw charging) 240kw total capacity. That is barely enough to drive 300 km with a 40-ton combination (truck 25t + trailer). And here you can already see where the problems are starting. Imaging also carrying another ton of additional weight just for the overhead "charging". Electric highways can decrease the size of this issue, but there is still another issue left. The distance between the comapanies and the electric highway are too long (on average). You would need to either charge your truck while loading cargo or you would need to idle and wait for your truck to recharge. As long as you are a forwarding/trucking company that is specialized in systematic transport (always driving from A to B and back) this ain't an issue, but as soon as you are always driving different routes to different companies, you're running into a few other problems. Where are you going to charge your truck if you don't have a highway in sight? What if all charging stations are already in use by other trucks charging? Or where are you going to charge your truck in the middle of this big forrest you have to deliver your cargo to? What if you need to charge your truck for 10 hours until you can continue your driving, is it really worth it or are you losing time and therefore income? As you can see there are too many issues left for most traansportation companies and therefore this is only a topic of importance to companies offering systematic transportation (read: forwadring companies) Currently the trucks that use this electric highway are hybrids and therefore a compromise. The time will show how this will develop, but I don't think that we will see any heavy electric trucks for serious use any time soon.
  13. Ahh, I've already had an eye on the older version of that controller/board. Are the switches and the ignition key running only with power from the Board/Controller?
  14. Hello guys and girls, I wanted to know if any of you have custom (self-built) button panels or dashboards in use and I want to know more about it. I'm currently thinking about building one, but I'm not entirely sure where to start. So I'd like to hear about your projects. I am not looking for the "I have a Streamdeck" or the "I have ... dashboard software" answers. I am looking for those who have a self-built dashboard/button panel Which Controller/Board did you use? Is there any special software running or otherwise required for it to function? Would you recommend to build one? Why or why not? (For a reference of "custom button panel" take a look at the post below) Thank you in advance for your answers!
