  1. The decision to lower the ETS2 and ATS speed limits across the board was was made due to the fact that speed is the #1 factor in the incidents we deal with on a daily basis. Those of us who have been on the TMP team for quite some time and deal with running this community day to day all agree on this. The changes were also made to bring the mod back in line with its original vision. For those who were actually here when this mod launched, you may remember that the layout was much different than is has been for some time, and how it is today. 3rd party services such as TrucksBook do not factor in our decision making. We are only concerned with what we can control. It's important to remember that both ETS2 and ATS are simulation games by default and they are designed to be approached from a simulation-minded standpoint. That means following road laws and road etiquette that you would follow in real life. The more people that adhere to these standards and respect each other on the road, the better the experience is for everyone. If two users are involved in an incident and both of them are breaking a baseline set of rules which in this case are standard road laws that you see across the US, it's hard to make a solid decision on who is at fault. By following the rules and driving much like you would an actual HGV on an actual road, the better off you are in the case that you are unfairly hit or hard done by. This also makes our job easier and leads to far more solid decision making. Remember, just like with actual incidents if both parties are found at fault, both parties are adequately punished.
  2. Truly my favourite RPG and in my opinion the best Elder Scrolls game in the series.
  3. Based on the community feedback we have gotten from polls to actual feedback tickets, many users who aren't as loud as the very vocal non-sim players have come out to voice their support for the new standards we put in place. Also, I have an image that argues your point otherwise. You have two servers that you can run around in as fast and recklessly as you want with no penalty to you so long as you are not using 3rd party tools to alter your gameplay. Tell me again why the speed limit bothers you?
  4. Hello when are the reports finally processed?

    If you have too little staff to work with, let me know, I'll help you get it going faster. My videos (report) are already piling up. For 8 days not a report edited!

  6. The Realistic Graphics Mod is not currently supported. While many of us would like to use it online, unfortunately we can't right now.
  7. The limits are not going to be re-addressed anytime soon. Both ETS2 and ATS are simulation games by default and they are designed to be approached from a sim-minded standpoint. If you were on the team and you saw the reports we see and handle day in and day out, you would understand some of the justification for the changes. Speed is the OVERWHELMING factor in the incidents we see. It facilitates a very impatient, reckless, and disrespectful style of play.
  8. @APSingh I've always wanted to see the addition of yards with collisions, but the amount of overhead that would require from us would be far too much. You see players go AFK on the unloading pad all the time. I wouldn't trust many users to actually respect and obey others in yards, especially the smaller ones that you find across ETS2 and some in ATS. That would leave us with much more work than we need. Besides, ETS2 and ATS were never built with multiplayer in mind. NCZ areas are required to keep trailers that spawn from taking damage or flying off in a grand display of SCS's physics engine. Puls, the yards aren't really built for handling multiple lorries at once. A few yes, but busy cities would be a nightmare. It's a great idea in theory, but it would be an absolute mess to manage both from a player standpoint and a moderation standpoint.
  9. I also ran into the same issue today on ETS2 EU#2. GTX 1080 FTW here. I have reported it in our staff area. I assumed my issue was isolated, but apparently it's not. Thanks for posting this.
  10. Put on those shades and wave to yesterday. The sunlight hurts my eyes.

  15. Hello, can you look in appeal bans? I'm innocent, please

    1. JJay

      JJay

      Witaj,

       

      Forum nie jest dobrym miejscem na rozmowy o apelacjach i banach.

      Proszę bądź cierpliwy i cierpliwie czekaj na odpowiedź. Mamy dużo pracy i nie możemy robić kilkunastu rzeczy na raz.

      Mam nadzieje, że to rozumiesz.

       

      Jeśli masz więcej pytań napisz do mnie w prywatnej wiadomości.

       

      Pozdrawiam

      JJay
