  1. It's not really a matter of being "popular" or compatible. I'm certain there are snow mods for ATS but it's very unlikely we'll get any for ATSMP for quite some time. The thing is... the regions currently available on ATS are arid regions and it never snows there in their real life counterparts. California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico are not states that ever receive snow in the winter so it would not make any sense to add snow to them. ETS2 gets it in the entire map every year because all of those places are places where it can snow in the winter in real life so it makes perfect sense to have snow in the game during this time of the year. Maybe in the future, when ATS receives snowy states, we might be seeing snow mod coming to MP but until then, that's not something that should happen.

  2. Headlights check. Best addition, ever! No more do we need to do any /sann to tell players to turn on their headlights or personally ask specific players to turn them on. :'D


    inb4 people start posting around and/or contacting Support/Feedback to ask for help because they are getting kicked "no reason". lol

  3. I am very sorry but I have to disagree. Add these sort of noises to the CB would just make things worse. The mic quality of many players who are constantly on the CB is already bad enough to add any more interference. Add it would just make it even harder and more annoying to hear them. It will never be added.


    Number two is just pointless. There already are rules in place to regulate the usage of the CB:

    And limit its usage in any way of form to English or any other specific language only would be discrimination of other cultures. Don't forget that though English is the main language of Truckers MP, users of all nationalities and languages use our services. They are free to express themselves as they please, so long as no rules are violated in the process. Not to mention that the only way exclusive language channels would be respected/used by only the given language, even on the slightest, would be if admins would start to monitor them constantly. We already have a rather high load of work to be done in-game with the hundreds of reports you guys file every minute, we already have to patrol the busiest roads to ensure everyone is driving properly and remove the ones who are not, we already have to watch over the chat to remove anyone who insults another player and we also have to review the thousands of reports that are sitting on the web report system. It all takes quite some time from us. That's some extra work that we definitely don't need, at the moment. Not to mention that some of us actually prefer to have the CB in our cab completely shutdown altogether.


    To me, this is a -1 to it all.

  4. You didn't do anything wrong. The servers are programmed to automatically kick any players whose truck/car don't move within 5 minutes (I think it is 5, I could be remembering the time wrong) or don't type anything in the chat within that time span. This is done for a few reasons, mainly to make room for other players to connect (in the event the server is too full, for example, so players who are not playing but just taking up a slot can give way to someone who will actually play) and to prevent someone from blocking the road while not being near their computer for some reason. The system cannot currently identify if a player is doing something in the menus of the game so that is why you got auto-kicked while purchasing a truck.


    To get around this, you can simply open up the chat, hit Space once and then Enter (or just type anything, really) every few minutes. This will reset your AFK counter and the server will give you more time and not kick you.

  5. All these years and people still expect slippery roads with the winter mod? Haven't any of you who want that learned anything from that one super populous road I like to call Death Road and the thousands of griefers? :troll:



    Anyway... well, I guess it's coming the time to prepare my little Christmas Iveco as per my own tradition and get all cozy in it! :P



    Or at least until the new Scania I ordered arrives, then I'll have to break my tradition for a while.


  6. @GGF MD and a few others pretty much nailed down the answer for you. However, I would like to add the following:


    Though you may not be banned for not slowing down when someone's attempting to overtake you, you could be banned if you, in a way or another, prevent that person from safely overtaking and your actions result in an accident. Say for example, that Player A has a clear lane and enough room to overtake you safely and he tries to do so but you speed up when he's next to you. While he tries to get more speed to pass you, Player B comes in on the opposite lane and Player A either crashes into Player B or one of them (or both) go off road to avoid a collision. Or alternatively, while attempting to overtake you, you swerve into Player A's path, forcing him off the road (and potentially crashing into something) or forcing him to slam his brakes and possibly losing control and crashing.


    These are just two examples of how you could be banned for not letting someone overtake you. Now, of course there are other variants that would determine whether or not you would be the one at fault, so the best thing to do is to always let people overtake you, just to be on the safe side. Especially if you can tell they might not make it before another player comes in on the opposite direction. In this case, the player trying to overtake you would be wrong, but at least you'd help avoiding a potential accident that could involve you as a victim. After all, you are not in a race so there is no need to keep other people from passing you.

  7. Isso significa que a sua conexão com a internet está instável ou muito lenta. Em outras palavras... sua internet está ruim. O servidor está programado para automaticamente chutar qualquer jogador cujo ping médio ultrapasse 600ms. Isso é assim para evitar acidentes causados por lag. Você vai precisar descobrir o que está errado com sua conexão para que não seja mais chutado do servidor. Comece por utilizar uma conexão cabeada ao invés de WiFi, interrompa todos os download/uploads enquanto joga, desligue/desconecte outros aparelhos que esteja utilizando sua conexão, reinicie o modem/roteador, etc.

  8. EDIT: I'm a dummy. I missed the part where it says TMP staff cannot participate. Only saw it now upon reading it again. :c


    Can Trial Admins participate and have a chance to win or is it limited to non-staff members? After all, we are just regular players in-game! If that accounts for anything. lol


  9. I always have my brake sensitivity set to default. Never touched my brakes settings. Personally, I find the default values perfectly fine. Any issues I ever had with brake were due to my own fault 'cause default is perfectly capable of slowing down my truck and stopping it when I need. So long as I am not speeding around like a maniac like over half of the community does and expect the truck (or car) to stop on a dime and complain when it doesn't, a crash happens and then admins have to deal with ban complaints in appeals. That's just silly and reckless. :\

    No, the person won't. If you report someone but the admin who reviews the report thinks the person you reported isn't guilty of what you accused them, you will not be banned. Instead, what will happen is that your report will be considered "useless/pointless" and your score will be lowered. With a lower score you won't be able to file as many reports as someone with a higher score. When a report gets accepted as valid, however, your score is increased and you become able to file more reports at once. By default, all users start off with the ability to file 10 reports at once. Increase your score by filing valid reports and you become able to make more than 10 reports at once (as an example, my score currently allows me to file 14 reports at once). Get your score lowered because of useless reports and you will have your reports limit decreased.


    To everyone: The thread below contains some more useful information that you all should read.


  11. Hello Heapsteriser.


    Given the large amount of reports and appeals that are filed on a daily basis, it normally may take from a day to about a week for these to be reviewed by the administrators. Ban appeals in particular, however, may take less time. Please be patient and rest assured that a administrator will be handling your case as soon as possible.
