  1. As i like to do various short trips rather than a long one, usually the country i drive the most is Germany. I also drive often around Netherlands, Belgium, France (mostly Calais, Lille and Strasbourg) and Luxembourg. More sporadically i drive in Scandinavia or Italy. I love their scenery. I very rarely go to Austria and Switzerland but i often go through them when driving from/to Italy. Finally, the countries i drive the least are Eastern Europe (with exception of Czech Republic, which i visit often as it is very close to my main garage in Dresden), the UK, and in the very bottom the DLC area of France.
  2. I will buy it when it comes out, specially if they include it in the bundle with a small discount like i did with Italy.
  3. 150 Km/h update is good or not?

    The speed limit is OK. 150 kph is still a very high speed. I only think it should be disabled in EU #4, since you cant harm anyone there.
  4. I've completed the entire CD road with 0% damage and no quick loads. I feel very lucky haha. Just a minor incident with a... hm... bad driver that tried to overtake me at the railway crossing, but fortunately did no damage.

     

    Ps: The traffic jam at that crossing,  in the opposite lane (direction Duisburg), mother of god i've never seen such a jam in TMP. At least 15 kms full of stopped trucks.

      then should be a medal for that feat tbf :lol:

  5. Today i finished the event, after a 3 hour almost non stop session in TMP, with only a break to have lunch (my time is 3 hours behind WoT time). Here is my event log: The last 5 deliveries, were chaotic. I witnessed at least 4 crashes, almost got rammed twice, and so on. And what a huge traffic jam was in the highway near Dortmund! I dont know what happened there. Fortunately i was in the opposing lane. The paintjob looks great. I will apply it to some of my trucks when it becomes available in MP.
  6. How long do you drive?

    It depends. Sometimes i do trips around 1000-1500 km, other times i prefer a bunch of short jobs, and others i just do quick jobs around the C-D area, depending on my mood i drive in CD road or use alternative routes. One trip i like to do is from my 'virtual hometown' Dresden to Calais, it is around 1000 km, but you really dont feel that long because once you reach the Köln-Liege highway, the rest of the trip goes very quickly. Same goes to Scandinavia, once you reach Denmark you feel you're very close to your destination even if there is still a long way to go. About my longest trip, in TMP it was around 2200 km from Paris to Stockholm, but my longest one ever was in SP back when i had Promods, from Murmansk to Cluj, ~ 3500 km, through 7 countries: Russia, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania.
  7. for Special Transport DLC

    Taking road chaos in consideration to support or not a specific DLC is absurd. Road chaos is caused by bad behaviour of the players in the road. Excessive traffic does not cause road chaos by itself - but add an accident, a blocker, someone AFK, a reckless driver, etc, basically anything out of the normal road behaviour, and it will turn into chaos. The only exception to this would be the non-synced traffic lights in road works like the one in Bergen-Oslo road. All players are meant to drive properly, so if you drive properly, nothing wrong could happen with special transport as long as they drive where they are supposed to in SP and, again, drive properly. If they dont, there is always the option to record and report them like you would do with anyone driving bad. To put an example: Here one NGO installed a few phone chargers in some public places, for free use. Then many people criticized them because in my country it's fairly common for some dumb people to vandalize and/or steal things in public places. Should them stop installing these? Nope, people need to learn to stop destroying and stealing things. Normal people will make good use of them. As far as i know Doubles were restricted to Scandinavia because there have no restrictions in SP, so any player would take them to CD road and of course cause some issues - again, not road chaos by itself because that requires another player to do dumb moves, but in the road where most of the dumb players go, doubles would be a bad idea, they could also be used for blocking, etc. Also doubles arent allowed IRL in many countries in 'basic' Europe, while in Scandinavia they are allowed, and afaik only Scandinavian companies can offer you doubles, so it makes sense. Maybe it was also easier to devs to do so. Special Transport, on the other hand, has predefined routes that cannot be modified by default and a defined speed limiter which heavily restricts what could a player do with it in MP. Nobody could take them to CD road nor to almost all country roads and they are also restricted to a low speed which reduces the risk of accidents. Also, as far as i know most ST routes are in places usually not much visited by players, the only exception being Brussel, the other cities have a normal to low traffic. What i said about ST is basically do not let players go in MP to places they're not able to go in SP. That's all. If you keep special transport in the areas they are designed to be, it's unlikely something bad will happen. Escort vehicles can be simply removed, or make non collission, or even make them only visible by the player, which is something already tested in MP by some players so i dont see why so many people complains about the escorts. All of that considering there wouldnt be any technical difficulties with it, such as invisible hitboxes for non-DLC players, or something similar. So obviously if devs found something like these it's obvious it wont be supported or will only be in EU #4.
  8. for Special Transport DLC

    The DLC must be added without restrictions as soon as devs can sort all the issues. No special server, no special rules, nope nope. Players must learn to drive properly. Devs cannot restrict a game feature due to potential road chaos, as road chaos is player's fault not devs nor DLC fault. However, they should remain restricted to the default routes, because a ST cargo in CD road or somewhere similar could cause huge issues regadless of the players driving properly or not.
  9. Where do you drive the most? Or your favourite road?

    Calais-Dresden. From hell to my home. 1000 km which feels shorter because the Liege-Koln route goes pretty fast. I also like to drive in Italy and France, they're very well made DLCs altough french tolls are a pain, they're everywhere.
  10. As that city had no real utility for me, owning garages in the neighboring cities of Calais and Brussel, i sold my garage in Lille. All the employees had been relocated to Dijon, while the two personal vehicles i had stored there were moved to Szczecin.

     

    The garage in Calais now remains as my only 5-slot garage in France.

  11. Why do you go to Duisburg-Calais?

    I just drive it as a challenge, to prove myself if i can deal well with the crazy drivers of this road. I like crowded places, but CD road is something i avoid more times than i use. I do many trips from or to Calais, Duisburg or Rotterdam, but i mostly use the Koln-Liege highway or via Amsterdam, which is a longer route but also less stressful. In off peak times, however, i tend to use CD road much more often. Anyway, in these days i almost never used CD road, instead i choose to drive to Calais/Duisburg from somewhere else. A route i'm doing a lot last days is Dresden-Calais, it's a rather long route (about 1050 km) but that zone is very familiar to me, as Dresden is my main city and around half of the route goes by the route known as the "alternative C-D road", via Koln, Liege and Lille, so once i reach that highway i feel i'm close to the destination, despite i still have to drive 500 km.
  12. My "virtual hometown", Dresden, is one of the special transport delivery points. Nice :D

     

    Ps: If ST is supported in MP some time, i expect heavy chaos in Brussel and Dortmund.

  13. Concerns regarding the Special Transport DLC

    A permanent ghostmode for players driving ST jobs would be the best solution. It will be unrealistic, but safety is more important than realism. Take in mind ghost mode does not prevent crashing with the environment so they still have to drive carefully. GM could work this way: once you accept a special transport delivery you enter ghost mode, which lasts until you deliver the cargo or cancel the job, after that you will leave permanent GM and enter the normal temporary ghostmode we have now, this is to prevent trolls from abusing it. But i think the devs know much more than any of us in how to deal with DLCs. We can have concerns, suggest different ideas but only the devs have the code and know how it works, so they will almost always have the best solution for this.
  14. Concerns regarding the Special Transport DLC

    People said the same with heavy cargo, and now it isn't a problem at all. Same with doubles. This DLC as any other will be compatible with MP sometime and everybody will get used to dealing with it. I dont see why it could cause chaos. A normal player driving this kind of load will give way to the other players, also a truck pulling this huge loads will move considerably slower than a normal truck, so it will be fairly easy to overtake even if the player does not give way. The only problem i see, is being involved in traffic jams with a trailer that could block both lanes of the road. I think they can be treated as "useless traffic" in these situations, altough they are not useless. And a slow, huge trailer could cause accidents with reckless drivers, but... huh, reckless drivers do not discriminate between huge and small vehicles, they crash everything
  15. I dont know how on earth it is possible to have 450 players in EU #2 queue if you cant login with more than 200. What do they do, join the queue and stay AFK? :|
