  1. People who troll, ram on purpose are already aware of the possible punishment. Extending punishment durations will not be a deterrent but will be pulled apart from its actual purpose and make game moderators busier with the prolonging appeal process. It'll also increase the load of the feedback system; some people will complain about their ban, fault wasn't on purpose, but the length extended, etc. Eventually, they'll criticize TMP management with bad language as well. I believe that the current punishment system is working well; leaving the first three bans to the discretion of the g
  2. It could be useful if ETS2 was a lightweight game and the majority of the players were able to play at high scaling, and resolution but right now, it's not useful. Even dashboard of trucks is not clearly visible at 100% scaling; a text on top of the car, which is a hundred meters away, wouldn't be visible. It'd be a plus to the simulation experience, but in the end, it's useless. I agree with @willians1002; it would be easier and helpful if there was a "local announcement" command that its content is shown in chat or on a rectangle with no matter of display setting.
  3. I prefer not to drive on C-D road since there is a high potential of an accident. The roads always contains many traffic jams and since the trucks are in close proximity to each other even, a simple ping or FPS drop can ruin the whole experience even if it's not yours. Besides the cons, there are pros of the C-D road, such as the population within the area; you don't see that many vehicles drive together in any other game.
  4. I mostly stick to our own VTC radio, TruckersFM and my own Spotify playlist. I'm adding the songs that I like to my playlist while listening to the radio.
  5. We all are human, we all do the same things in life, and we all make mistakes; it doesn't matter what kind of mistake it is, but as they say, "a mistake is a mistake". Well, most of us, humans, think that making a mistake is a bad thing, but the real thing is, it isn't. I mean that even if you made a mistake, you could benefit from it and take a lesson. Mistakes are beneficial in entire life if used in the right way. As an advice, don't do like the stone heads on TV and news that hurt themselves or get depression over some useless things such as no girlfriend or making a mistake. Onc
  6. It'd bring benefits that are more useful and easier than the current one, but as everything has pros and cons, it also has. Some people may act as a game moderator and do back-seat moderating, create bulk-reports in-game, which will eventually increase the load on the in-game report system and cause a reduction in service standard. Besides these, people who use keyboard or mouse control to drive their trucks may crash if they try to click on a vehicle while driving. Sooner or later, it'll increase the rate of accidents and put the system in a loop. Adding an option to view TruckersMP
  7. First of all, it's a game; you neither lose money nor gain by staying in-game. If you're pretty slow at getting a cup of coffee or go to the bathroom, you can just disconnect and reconnect when you're back. It's pointless to have idling and AFK players, sometimes I'm having to do such things as well, which may take more than the actual idling time, and I'm doing the same thing. It takes just a couple of minutes to start the game and continue driving; even if you don't have an SSD, it does take maximum five minutes. It just takes your time, but it costs money to TruckersMP. Most of the players
  8. As I said above "e.x." was a typo, I actually wanted to say "e.g." in there. I already fixed it. Also I've added 2 more mistakes, that you've specified, to the topic, thanks.
  9. I prefer having only one dot because when you add the second one it looks like you're going to end the sentence, anyways I'll update it with the right one. Ex. stands for "Example" neither exercise nor explanation, but in that case I noticed I misplaced "x" in "e.x". I'm going to replace it as well. Thanks for the notice.
  10. I'm glad I could help, and thanks.
  11. Common English Grammatical Mistakes This community has been actually pretty helpful in improving English skills of the community members. You can actually notice that by checking the old posts of the community members, especially those who don't use English as a communication language in real life. • Misplaced apostrophes: Rules: Apostrophes are used to indicate belongings (Something that belongs to someone). To indicate something belong to one person, the apostrophe is before the letter 's'. Ex: Jake's shoes are old. To indicate something belongs
  12. That would be definitely useful and better than the current one but there should be a cooldown as well because some of the people may abuse it like backseat moderating with freecam around a congested place, spamming it on purpose.
  13. Flex with your typing speed from this website. If you're having low WPM and want to improve it, you can practice your touch typing skills to type faster and with fewer errors day by day. Here's mine:
  14. Whoever go against the social order and rules does annoy me. Ramming, blocking, even insulting can be toleratable within limit and if it's not on purpose. Flouting or going against the rules to annoy, troll is my pet peeve.

    Hated Trucks

    Iveco for sure. I can't feel the power of hundreds horsepower engine, however Volvo and Scania are able to give the feeling well.
  16. While blockchain technology shows great promise, Bitcoin itself is the 21st century equivalent of the Tulip Mania, even my grandfather knows about cryptocurrencies. In other words, Bitcoin might be in a bubble. If we ignore crypto speculators, Bitcoin is a niche market mostly populated by gamblers, criminals and darkweb psychos. They aim to buy and sell in Bitcoin, hoping to remain anonymous in transactions. But Bitcoin fails at this too: it fails to protect them as many arrests have shown in the past. So the cryptocurrency doesn't even provide a good service for it's main market. Monero
  17. That's what I think as well. Bitcoin is too slow to replace fiat though. Unless there is a way to do the major optimizations to the system. Bitcoin can only handle something like 100 transactions a second while in the world there are tens / hundreds of thousands of transactions a second. There are other much more optimized crypto currencies. Perhaps in the future there will be something like Ripple or Ethereum for day to day transactions and bitcoin for your savings, who knows.
  18. Bitcoin is gaining traction again after surpassing its previous all time high of $20k USD back in the bull run of 2017. It is currently valued at $45.7k at the time of this post. The current bull run is different than the last one in how there are now billion dollar financial institutions such as MicroStrategy and Greyscale investing millions/billions of dollars in Bitcoin. These investors are taking Bitcoin and holding it, making the available supply on exchanges less. As the demand for Bitcoin increases and the supply decreases, it results in sudden spikes in price. However, Bitcoi
  19. Not necessary, what will you do with that? If you write a sensible reason, I will state my opinion.
  20. What a great idea, it's okay from my side. It can be called "Merchants Corner". As I stated above, upvote from my side because it's useful.
  21. Congratulations and good luck :P

  22. Happy birthday :)

  23. I learned alot, first of all, brotherhood. It's the important thing that this VTCs brought to me as an advantage. Second, having some friendships and learned how to drive a truck properly. Some culture maybe by having some long conversations with different people from different countries. Third one, behaving, well I am not a member of any trucking company IRL but I tried it in VTCs and learned how they live ( some examples not all ). Fourth and the last one, rules. Yes rules and how they should be. Thanks FTC for making me a better person
