  1. Never in my entire life have I ever taken SO much damage to my truck as I have today, just TRYING to cross from Duisburg to Calais. Not even in the worst of days on Rotterdam/Europoort. What the hell!? Since when is that road, that used to be so peaceful, become so busy?! Being busy is not the issue, though, but all the "pained children" who, apparently, will die if they don't speed and overtake with no regard about others. Seriously, what the buck!?


    43% of damage to my truck and 12% to my trailer. And that's just on the way to Calais. The total score so far has been 4 rammings and 3 head-on collision by imbeciles overtaking where and when they can't. Oh, and two scrubs who intentionally "tossed" their vehicle on my face.


    There's a new batch of reports coming out soon.

      I remember seeing you in the chat! Just can't remember if I saw your truck, though. There were so many of them all over the place.

  3. My cat is gone. Her original owners appeared today and proved being her owners so we had to let her go with them. They recognized her. They seem to be very good people and though I will REALLY miss that cat, I believe I can rest at ease, knowing that she's in good hands. I am glad me and my family could have that adorable fur ball in our lives and be her guardian for the time being. Who knows what could have become of her if she had not come around. Not that many people around here have the patience or care to take in some random adult cat that shows up their door, you know! My mother cried after they left and I'll be lying if I say I didn't shed some tears of my own, as well. :'(


    I will miss this adorable, fluffy, white furry face so, so, so, so much! :(



    Thank you for brightening up my day and making me smile all the time, just for being present, my furry friend. :')

  4. I've said this before and I will say it again...


    I do not add people I don't know on Steam so do yourself a favor and do not send me a friend invite unless we know each other. Especially if I tell you to send the invite. If you send me an invite and I don't know who you are, it will just sit there on my notifications and collect dust until you either cancel it or I decide to click on "Ignore".



    This isn't me being snob or rude. I just don't like adding random people I don't know. I've had enough negative experiences in the past to go back to doing it again. So be sure I actually know who you are (and that I like you. I also don't add people I don't like) if you want to befriend me on Steam, alright? :\

    1. JeKnYan


      I have a specific set of requirements that need to be followed before I add someone:


      - Comment on my profile for the reason why
      - Be above level 10
      - Have one friend in common
      - Have one group in common
      - Met in game or I know you in real life or somewhere else
      - Have a public profile, if i find out the profile is made private again after adding me i will remove you
      - VAC bans are ok (This I don't really care about as I don't play Valve games)
      - If you are in the Aussie Heroes Steam Group, I will most likely accept your invite 
      - There may be some exceptions to the above list, however


      And people still don't comment.... I usually add people I meet in my group's group chat, who I get along with and fellow Forumers and Truckers.

    2. Anriandor


      ^ Okay, I would never have a chance there °_°

    3. JeKnYan


      Hey, since you're a fellow forumer and trucker, why not send an add? :D 

      @Anriandor because there MAY be some exceptions... ;)

  5. Welp, I just spent the past two hours (almost three, actually) attending to support tickets. I'm done with that for today. Time to do anything else.

  6. Answering appeals and reviewing reports to some quality music! :D
















  7. I just bought a mouse from DELL a few days ago which should come in the mail in a couple weeks or so but perhaps I should have waited to buy one. I am highly tempted to buy this one now and I don't even give a crap about "gamer" gear. D:

      Indeed. Quick delivery (and do take "quick" with a grain of salt, by the way) can increase the price of a product quite a lot depending on where it is shipping from. The quickest type can vary from 20 bucks or so to over 60. Even the slowest delivery type can be a bit costly at times so in an economy like Brazil's, where all things tech are expensive as hell, you gotta make some sacrifices here and there to save as much as possible. :(

  8. Something really weird just happened on ATS's US#1 server. At 6:46 AM, time suddenly reverted to 6:13 AM. O-o I have proof!


  9. After spending four hours doing some maintenance on my PC, where I took everything apart and did some pretty good cleaning and renewed the thermal paste of the processor (haven't done it since I built this machine in 2009) as well as check for any hardware faults (which thankfully I did not identify any), I put it all back together and I am glad to say that it is working fine. c: I do need to replace the exhaust case cooler on the back, though. It is working, but well. The problem is that finding one with a molex connector already attached to it to plug it to the power supply is very difficult. I've been looking for months and I still couldn't find one. I did find one this week and bought it, but it's too big for my case so I can't use it. :( 


    So much dust everywhere! Turns out it was worse than it seemed.



    Everything has been disassembled, cleaned and now it is all ready to be put back together. Motherboard with processor, PSU, case coolers and the front panel as well as both side covers are behind me in this photo. All also have been cleaned.



    Ta-da! All clean and ready to be turned on, again! :D


    On some other news, last night after I finished working on my PC I began to feel ill. Got a headache that only got worse and worse, my back was feeling very sore, my head was feeling very heavy and as I tried to have dinner after taking a shower, despite not having any appetite, I threw up twice. Then I gave up on my meal, just brushed my teeth and went to bed shortly past 10 PM (which is absurdly early for me) and slept until just a few minutes ago (past 1 PM). At least I am feeling fine, now. Back is fine, head isn't aching and my stomach is not acting up anymore. :D

      My advice is to clean the computer dust, preferably with a mask, so that it is also safe for your health. Every time I clean the dust of my computer, I wear a mask. If I don’t wear a mask, it will also hurt my body.

  10. What? Already?! Crashes Compilation 30 is out! Let the haters hate! Their tears are delicious and fuel my trucks.

      @Alexx93 people want to make whatever videos they want to, it's not necessarily copying, it's inspiration...

  11. Check out what just arrived in the mail for me (sort of). :D


    I think Derpy is the one who delivered my comic book, today. Instead of arriving at my house, it was delivered to a school about six or seven blocks down the street. Someone at Amazon made a typo on the number of my house and wrote "77 0" instead of "770". And the person doing the delivery wasn't bright enough to understand the number so it ended up there. Thank God my cellphone number was on the receipt, though. The school called me about the package and I went there to fetch it. lol

      If only you could get a play button based on the amount of videos posted...


      With the amount of lunatics on the road, I'd get one tomorrow :D

  13. I was playing SimCity 2000 on my old PC the other day and after I got tired I decided to load a pre-made map just to mess around. For some reason I was very amused when I was done and decided to quit the game.

      Honestly, I'm worried with your previous cities if the game thought this was the best one and you should save it lol.

    2. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      Oh no, this was just one of the custom scenarios the game comes bundled with. I just loaded it to mess around for a while. XD

  14. If it were possible to have another car added to TMP and Game Moderators could have one of these on ATS, then I'd never touch my Scout ever again!




    And one of these for the players wouldn't hurt, either. :P




    I've never wished for another car on TMP until I saw that thing driving around on ATS. lol

    1. LordBenji


      Not sure why you quoted your own sentence Mike, did you think I completely missed your own point?


      You're much more of a veteran of TruckersMP than me, so you know better than me about the history of the Skoda. I'm not here to argue, or try to be Mr Knowitall, I was just saying what I was thinking.

    2. Mike Dragon

      I might have interpreted it that way a bit, yes. My bad.

  15. Weather has been quite hot, lately. I have a small fan next to my bed at my feet that I use to blow fresh wind on me when I'm sleeping so I can remain cool and comfortable. The fan died last night. I woke up uncomfortably sweaty. ;-;

  16. AT FINALLY FREAKING LAST!!! Cost me a key but whatever. Better than waste it on pure luck since I'd be spending a key to open the Nitro Crate anyway. Hahah.



    Now I just need the Dragon Wings Topper and at least TRY to rank up in Season 5 competitive (I have never played comp on RL) so I can hopefully get one of those fancy Dragon banners and I'll be set. That gold one look sooo good!! I don't even know if I can still have a chance at this, though. :c

      Welcome to Club Draco anyway :P






    2. #Sikora


      Do you have problems with servers too?

    3. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      If you mean the lagfest I've been having recently, then yes. I saw a few hours ago that the servers actually went down for maintenance for a little while.



      Well, at least I got that going on for me. Thanks, btw. XD These wheels go very nicely with my red Dodge!

  17. So, I am trying to install .NET Framework 3.5 on a client's PC because one of the programs he needs requires it. The only problem is that Windows 10 says I need to install .NET Framework 3.5 in order to be able to install .NET Framework 3.5.





    Need to install .NET Framework 3.5 so .NET Framework 3.5 can be installed...












    Check, please!

  18. Yay! ATS and ETS2's newest updates are here! :D Now to play the waiting game and patiently wait for MP to be patched.


    So far my favorite new additions are the differential lock and multiple fueling points on gas stations. The multiple fueling points will be REALLY useful on MP. Finally we can actually share the pump with other players! And that differential lock is sure to help get our trucks out of some situations which we couldn't get them off from before. Like, say... you pulled up to the side of the road but onto a bump/ditch without noticing, now you want to get out but one wheel is spinning freely in the air while the only wheel that is touching the ground and could get out out of there simply won't budge, leaving you with no option but to F7 away or load your latest save. Well, no more! Just engage the differential lock and give that wheel that's on the ground full power! :D I tested it multiple times and I can attest. It works beautifully! It also helps a ton when going up some steep hill. It seems to give the truck more traction. Great for pulling up heavy trailers up quarries in ETS2, for example.

    1. gwait


      I noticed the "g_force_economy_reset flag is disabled after economy reset." change as well. It should help people who try to reset their jobs and then continuously teleported to their garage because they forgot to turn it off after using it.

  19. When someone insults you in-game and you tell them you are going to report and they will be banned but they don't believe and argue that what they said was not a offense/bad word but then your report is accepted and they get banned for two weeks.


    1. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      You say it as if I posted a status for every single report.

    2. Spieker


      It's even funnier when they start saying "mimimi you have no right to record me" and so :D


    3. LordBenji


      Hahaha the karma ;) I'm still waiting for one of my reports to be accepted, because of a son of a biscuit who thought I was at fault for not letting him in during his poor attempt to overtake me with an oncoming truck O.O

  20. If you use PAC Editor on Gmod and would like to use it to make the eyes of your player model blink (in case they don't), you might find this very useful:

      Not confusing at all! It's just different from anything you have ever played.

  21. Break is over. Guess who's back and ready to "fire" some rule breakers again? ;)




    (Looking forward to being able to use these wheels on MP. Gotta wait until the AI wheels are synchronized, though. :c )





    By the way, folks, I'd like to give out a little PSA regarding changing the wheels in your Scout...


    So long as they comply with the rules, do that is allowed. However, it is not recommended you use such modification on MP just yet. Wait until it is officially announced that the wheels are supported. They work and will show correctly for you, however, even though you may have the correct wheels and they look like this on your screen:





    Everyone else around you will see them like this:





    Please notice that the staff is aware of this and you cannot be banned for it, though it's best to play it safe and avoid confusion by simply not using the AI wheels for now. So here's my recommendation: Don't use any AI wheel in your Scouts until Truckers MP says they are supported. Let's avoid confusion, alright? ;)

  22. That embarrassing moment when you are recording a video to demonstrate it is perfectly possible to drive well using keyboard steering but your trailer decides to go tail happy and makes you lose control when you need to brake and turn at the same time.


  23. Another day... another scrub...

  24. Advice for all the players who will participate on the anniversary races on the 13th and 14th:


    Be aware of the train tracks. If it is already flashing red when you approach it, do not think you can make it and try to race through.

    1. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      Hmm, yes. I know it is possible to get though when it's flashing red if you time it right, though in the context of a race it is best to not take the risk. 'Cause if you fail, smashing into the gates will cost you the competition.

    2. LordBenji


      That oddly reminds me of this... :/


    3. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      Yup. I've seen similar happen in-game. XD
