  1. Not necessarily. What you shouldn't do is speed up. It's that that could get you banned. It all boils down to common sense, in the end. If someone is overtaking you and your speed is decent (not too fast), then it is fine to keep that speed steady and keep your lane, in most cases. But it is also important that you evaluate the traffic ahead of you so you can have an idea of whether or not the player who's passing you will be able to complete the overtake safely or not. You need to know to evaluate that so you can tell whether or not you should slow down (if you are going too fast you should slow down anyway) to facilitate his/her maneuver or not. Either way, slow down will always be helpful to someone who's overtaking you, especially in more crowded areas. Though overtake in such locations is usually forbidden, your chances of contributing to causing an accident are reduced if you slow down and keep your lane.

     

    Technically speaking, you can't really be banned for not slowing down for someone to pass you. When they choose to overtake, the responsibility of that maneuver is mostly on their shoulders, not yours. What lies on your shoulders is just whether or not you want to make life easier for that player. However, if you speed up when someone is trying to pass you and as a result, that person causes an accident because he/she could not pass you in time before meeting traffic in the opposite direction or something else similar resulting from you increasing your speed, then yes, you would be in big risk of receiving a ban for reckless driving. Though it would depend on the situation. Assuming that would happen, the Game Moderator would watch the evidence a couple times to evaluate the chances of success of the player overtaking you, how far away oncoming traffic was, what speed said player was traveling at and how fast you were going in relation to that player. If the GM concludes that the reported player (in this case, the one who tried to overtake but failed and caused an accident) caused the incident in part because you wouldn't let him pass, there is a chance that you could be penalized for either contributing or causing the problem. This may vary from GM to GM and from situation to situation, though. You could be banned for reckless driving or just receive a warning, or nothing at all. But it's better not to risk it, you know.

     

    Best thing is to always be on the safe side and facilitate for others to pass you. If you are doing 120 KM/h or more, I recommend you slow down to 100 or 90 if someone tries to pass you and you can tell there is no traffic coming the other way or that it is far enough for that person to pass you safely. If they cut in too close to you, then slow down even more so you can gain a safe distance from the person. If you are doing 90 or 80 KM/h, then you probably won't have to worry about slowing down to let them pass. Just keep your speed and lane steady. Slow down to gain distance if they cut in too close in front of you, though. You don't want to risk accidentally ramming them. Not that you would be punished for that, though, but let's face it... no one wants to have a crash. Especially in busy roads.

     

    You might want to take a look at this little guide on how to overtake and be overtaken properly:

  2. No, it cannot be used on MP anymore. To achieve that effect you have to pile up the lights in the same slots but under the current rules set, there can be only one single item per slot, which automatically makes tinted headlights illegal.

     

    Please refer to rule 3.1 for more information: 

    §3.1 Truck modding

    Your vehicle must be functional. The truck must have the chassis, cabin, wheels and headlights. Some players might not see some players' headlights and tail lights if they don't own tuning DLCs. It's also permitted to save edit truck specific paint jobs into other trucks (e.g. Premium Racing paint job into another truck).

     

    It is allowed to save edit default engines and transmissions for trucks (e.g. 750Hp Volvo Engine with Scania Gearbox on a DAF truck). It is allowed to mix chassis and cabins of different trucks as long as they don't extend their hitbox significantly. Attempts to mix parts of cars and trucks are not allowed and will result in a kick from the server.

    Adding an excessive amount of items on your truck or placing items where they are not meant to stay is not allowed, any item that is not mentioned in these rules can only be placed where allowed by default by the game.

    - It's not allowed to place more items than allowed by default by the game (beacons, lights, horns or any other item).
    - It's not allowed to place beacons and large horns on bullbars/bumpers/sun visors. Normal beacons are allowed only on the roof and on the roof bars. LED beacons are permitted where allowed by default, while normal LED lights can also be placed on bullbars and roof bars.
    - Small horns and other items not mentioned before are allowed only where permitted by default.
    - Items meant for trucks' interiors cannot be placed outside the truck and vice-versa: as an example, it's not allowed to place beacons inside the cabin or place wheel knobs on bullbars, this is valid for every other item.
    - It's not permitted to place more than one item in one single slot. It is permitted to use at most 3 bars and place them on different slots meant for grills or lower bars. It is also possible to put all bars on the same slots and combine them. Items limit for these bars is what the game allows by default.

  3. ^

    The black one, yeh! That one looks the coolest. Though if you had one where the middle section of the car was white while the front and rear are black, that would be even cooler. Kinda like this Vic:

    EDIT: Now that I think of it, this idea wouldn't really work because of the "POLICE" text across the sides. XD So nevermind it. :P I don't really think that making part of the text black and and the other part white would really look very nice.


  4. If no one has suggested this yet, I'd like to mention the floor texture on the Scout on ATS. One of the interior options is missing the floor texture since <insert big number of months here> and hasn't been fixed yet. Does it affect gameplay? Not at all. It's just a visual thing, after all, but it bothers a little.

    Spoiler

    In addition, add that American police skin @LSPD Gamer showed us a few months ago. That one would be perfect to use on ATS. I know its usage would be limited, but would be a nice addition, if possible.

  5. Well, isn't that an interesting development? Maybe now the chances of having a North American police skin for the Scout to be used on ATS might be increased. Either way, for the time being I'll be happy enough to see the floor texture fixed on ATS and AI wheels synced. lol Looking forward to what will be coming out of this.

  6. Steam Family Share cannot be used with MP. It simply doesn't work. Also, I'd like to recommend you don't post multiple times at once, like that. Write everything you need to post in a single post. If you have already posted something and want to add more text, simply edit the latest post to add more stuff instead of creating a new post. Additionally, there is nothing keeping you from using your same save file without DLCs. If your issue are garages purchased in DLC territory that would otherwise not exist without said DLC, then all you gotta do is sell away these garages and trucks they may contain.


  7. That's a hybrid truck. He's using a day cab chassis with a sleeper cabin. There are guides on how to do that somewhere around here in the forums. Just make sure your truck complies with the rules if you save edit it: 

     


  8. Truckers MP does not support any form of piracy, at all and never will. Do so would result in serious legal troubles for us as piracy is illegal. Not to mention that it would breach several of SCS Software's rights. If you cannot afford a certain DLC now, then save up some money, add the DLC to your wishlist on Steam and buy it when it's on sale like everyone else or ask a friend of family member to buy it for you. They don't even cost that much and painjob packs are really cheap.


  9. I'd rather not. It's no trouble to press Y then / at all and besides, just like me, there certainly are other players who already have a command assigned to /.  Myself, I have a different command for each one of the / keys: Differential lock on the main / key and Quick Save on the NumPad / key. It was bad enough when they changed the CB and I had to reassign the hazard lights to another key. Don't need that again now that I have less keys available for assignments.

  10. Hmmhm. Exatamente. Há literalmente milhares de reports. As vezes demora um pouco mesmo. Damos prioridade aos reports mais velhos (os que foram enviados primeiro). Basta ter um pouco de paciência que logo chegamos ao seu. ;) Nenhum report é ignorado. Absolutamente todos são verificados.
