  1. It already exists: the road coming from Calais to A16 highway and the small section of the mentioned highway between Calais road and the C-D road. The first one is a mess due to the complex nature of the road (many decently sharp turns, no hard shoulder, intense traffic and an extremely dangerous intersection with the exit from A16 with all the traffic coming from C-D road trying to turn left into Calais). On the other hand, the A16 highway, being a pretty straight route at least in the section with the most traffic, is pretty calm. For every accident i've had or seen on A16 highway, there are 50 in the Calais entrance road. A dual lane C-D road would make it a bit better because you wont have to worry about the incoming traffic (well there will be surely the usual <insert insult here> driving wrong way). But the biggest problem of C-D road is not the road itself, is the entrance to Calais which is overcrowded and you dont have any other option to leave Calais unless you take the ferry to Dover which is a route not everyone can use, for example if you are going to Calais from Montpellier you can't go via Europoort > Dover, you would waste a lot of time. Does not matter if you want to use the C-D road or not - if you want to go from/to Calais, using that road is almost mandatory so you have to either potentially take a long detour to your route or put yourself in a high risk of an accident.
  2. Suggestion Name: Add a small road coming out from Calais to the C-D road. Suggestion Description: Unlike Duisburg, which has 2 exits, one of them pretty calm, currently Calais only has one entrance, if we do not count the port to the UK. This road is usually overcrowded with players, the vast majority of them are coming to C-D road. This road has a couple of sharp turns which are very dangerous for a road full of reckless drivers. Accidents and traffic jams are very common there. In addition, currently most of the players who want to enter Calais, after leaving A16 highway they need to do a left turn against the traffic coming from the city. Again, this is an extremely dangerous intersection where a lot of accidents happen. At the entrance of Calais there is a roundabout. Coming from the south is the entrance road. To the west, the avenue where the service station is located. To the north, the road which leads to the port. To the east there is no exit. If you could continue that way, you would quickly reach C-D road. If you use the free camera in C-D road, you could see a building 'in the oblivion', that building is actually located next to the entrance of Calais. My suggestion is to create a small avenue from the roundabout in Calais, to the C-D road. That way, most of the 'crowd' who want to go to/from C-D road would use that road, leaving the current exit with way lower traffic. It would be much safer to leave the city, if you want to go to C-D road, you would just follow the crowd via the new road, if you want to go via Lille, you use the default exit. Traffic coming to Calais from C-D road would just take that road and then continue via the roundabout into the city. Traffic coming from Lille would still have to 'drive against the crowd', but now in a better position, since a roundabout is much better than a left turn, also it is inside the city, which means the traffic there is limited to 80 kph, unlike the A16 highway exit where people drive much faster. Any example images: Why should it be added?: To make it safer for people to enter/leave Calais, and also make life much better for people who want to go to/from Calais but not via C-D road. It would also make leaving C-D road a bit safer, since currently you need to turn into a pretty narrow highway entrance and this usually causes a bit of trouble with players driving too fast. With this road you would have more space to turn.
  3. It does not have any sense. To be honest, the current state of C-D road is almost good. Basically everyone who want chaos goes there, and the highways are left for those who want peace. The only thing i think needs improvement is the entrance/exit to Calais. This road gets very overcrowded and it is a pretty dangerous highway which a couple of sharp turns which regularly cause accidents, which cause traffic jams, which cause accidents, and so on. Considering the roundabout at the entrance of Calais is pretty close to C-D road (you can actually see it in your GPS, at normal zoom, from the road), i think that, if possible, opening a short road going from that roundabout directly to C-D road would make it much better to enter/leave Calais: That way, all the crowd of players who want to go to C-D road would use that road, and leave the default one with way less traffic. Players who dont want to enter C-D road would only need to take care of that roundabout. You could simply take the 'main' avenue of Calais, turn right and end of the problem, while all the crowd could just go straight. Sure, it would be harder for people who wants to enter the city, but currently traffic coming from A16 has to do a very dangerous left turn against the heavy incoming traffic from Calais. In my opinion, a roundabout 'against the crowd' is much better.
  4. 3 day ban for insulting a guy who cut me off 3 times in a row, drove the last 100 kms on the opposite sidelane, caused 2 accidents?

     

    'Admin discretion'... if i get 3 days of ban that guy should get 20 days...

      You could stay calm when the incident occurred instead of insulting anyone.

  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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:

  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
