  1. Happy Birthday! 🥳

  2. Happy birthday to you!🥳

  3. Wow, suddenly the half of the normal unrealistic and dangerous +200 km/h racers became law abiding truckers thanks to the automatic speed limit of the World of Trucks contract of the special Sweden event.. This is going to be a relaxing cruise for me as regular WoT contract driver for the coming month! Hopefully they'll launch these events on a regular base, so the servers become somewhat safer.. 


    Unfortunately doesn't the half of the drivers out there understand the stepping off the gas to let your somewhat faster colleague overtake though, leaving the overtaker stuck on either the middle or left lane.. 

  4. Dear TruckersMP Team,


    Please get rid of that "there are too many players in the queue". If I decide I can wait that long (I am a very patient man you see), I will. Don't tell me I'm not welcome at that server, because I don't want a speedlimit and I don't want truck only servers..

      Must, but it can't .. they decided to open 2 more servers, can't put in one server..  i would keep 2 servers, Eu 1 - without cars 3500 slots, Eu 2 5000 slots just like now..

      If the limit of all servers was decreased to 1600, and all servers were the same (regarding their rules), the problem would be solved.

    4. Funkenstein


      @DrEGZo Great suggestion! I can't agree more. Will solve the main lag problem (and perhaps the traffic problem) too! 


      @Mircea_CeL_BatraN The limit for #EU2 is set on 3500, not 5000! As soon as 270 players are in the queue, you can't join the server anymore no matter if you can wait that long or not (my point basically) 

  5. 3s and 8s to y'all folks out there temporarily back at the hauling shifts.. 

  6. 200 jobs completed on World of Trucks (including the latest Trade Connection of France completed), 3.000 ton of cargo in total... A nice end for my virtual trucking career.. Lot of good things experienced, also lot of bad things (such as trolls).. Met many awesome truckers who share this passion and stick to the ingame rules, to you all I say thank you for the wonderful memories! But for now, I need to live my life again. My future is waiting for me. No time for playing anymore. At least for 4 months... Farewell and adieu, my fair (European) truckers! We'll meet again. 

  7. World of Trucks, cool that you make challenges to complete (for me currently 7 out of 10 completed) but how can we participate if your service is that unreliable that it shuts off in the middle of a job caught among busy traffic? You can do better than that.. #Frustrated 

  8. They should get rid of that "there are too many players in the queue, please select an other server" - I have the patience to wait and have always been waiting before it was a big deal..

      It only gives you this message when the server drop down list displays more than 200 players queuing. Keep spamming the refresh button on the right until it falls below 200 and you should be able to join instantly.

      I find myself just waiting until it lets me connect any way, so it might aswell just let me join the end of the queue since that is what I'm doing anyways haha

    3. Funkenstein


      Thanks for the tips, yeah I always wait a while too before the list goes down below 200 players in the queue.. But I remember the time where you had to wait with 600 others in the queue hence the patience part haha ;) You guys propably remember too by the way, as Veteran Truckers!

  9. My moment of fame in Best of Dashcam Europe #99 (5:29)

      I also sent them a clip two months ago. But I don't remember in which compilation it was

    2. Funkenstein


      Always nice if the clips got included :) Nothing too spectacular but if I may crash in the future I'll certainly send that in too haha ;) 

  10. As far as I'm concerned, has Denmark always been a part of Scandinavia
  11. So I've finally bought a dashcam, just how I need to record my ingame rides I also have to record real life journeys to prevent insurance fraud.. I had to learn it the hard way, with 5 years of no claim discount being lost as result.. And I immediately captured something (nothing too ordinary but it just proves your point to record your journeys)
