  1. @jukeboxknox You see, although that is true that you may find several people by searching up that profile, the report video is set to Unlisted and the only people who have access to it are me, the admins who can access my report and the person who I reported (because the link is available to him on the "reason for ban"). That's one of the reasons I believe it is the same person. Besides, his Steam name and TruckersMP are both different. @TruCkDr1V3r Thanks man! I'll do that. @All Thanks for the feedback, guys!
  2. Hi all. I have a quick question regarding the following rule: Yesterday I filed a report against someone and the person got banned (3 months due to history) and this morning I found a comment on the report video I sent as evidence calling me an idiot. I am pretty sure it's from the same person I got banned. Forgive my ignorance but my question is... Can/should I file another report? If so, can/should I file the report against the ID I believe is the one whose said comment belongs to? Would this sort of thing qualify for a new report? P.S: For reference, this is related to the report #17401.

      Thats a good video, enjoyed commentary.

  4. I see some people whining about the cars.

     

    This is my reaction to them:

     

  5. I just gave the car a quick test drive and I have a question to make:

     

    What are brakes?

     

     

    lol but seriously, though... You'd think that the cars would brake better/quicker than the trucks because they are so much smaller and lighter but nope. Even at 40 miles they still take forever to come to a full stop. It's as if their tires or the road were made out of butter. Hahah. Any (unloaded) truck will stop way faster.

     

    I might postpone the next episode of Crashes Compilation 22 for a day more just to give a better go with the car. Maybe I record a full trip with commentary on this Monday.

     

    My actual only complaint about these cars (besides being limited to the free roam servers) is that you can't take on loads to deliver (trailer pulling is not allowed) so basically the only thing you can do with them is go for a ride.

      Can't wait to see the video crash compilations, going to be plenty of crashes :lol: Flipped over myself last night :mellow:

      even by following the car speed limit, some turn on the highway is still too tight :3

      Oh yeah. Regarding the handling, I did notice you can easily lose control at high speeds. Though since I always average a max of 35-40 MPh in cities and 50-60-70 MPh on highways/roads (which I did on my short test drive) that's not much of an issue for me. =P Unless I go full speed around a corner, obviously. But I'm not stupid. lol I think that the major "problem" with the handling are the brakes themselves. They don't help much with the slowing process and thus, you may end up going faster than you should around a certain bend, depending on your speed. Or maybe run a red light because you could not stop in time (happened twice with me last night and I was only doing 40 :\ ).

  6. I am very disappointed that the cars are not available in the simulation servers. :\
  7. So, I've been told that tomorrow we should have a special treat! I shall grab my dashcam for I smell some new and good clips for Crashes Compilation just around the corner!

  8. Here's what I think of all of you who honk at someone who's stopped at a red light because you want them to move:

     

    Screw you!

     

    The light's red. I ain't moving on a red light. And neither should you. Honk all you want. Only the green light will make me move. Don't like it? Then too bad for you. Suck it!

      Agreed. Those kind of people who want other people to play their preferred way. And in most, if not all cases, it's not a good way.

  9. I should be making Crashes Compilation 22 this Saturday so for those of you who enjoy my series, stay tuned for there should be a new episode sometime this weekend. :)

  10. Now here's something I haven't done in a really long while... recording myself doing art. Last night I had this idea for a picture to gift a very good friend of mine so I decided to record the whole thing. I've done this before (record the drawing process, that is. I draw all the time, I just don't record it all the time) but it's been a few years, since. This pic is a gift for a good friend of mine and since I want to surprise her, I'm keeping the video Unlisted until the work is done and uploaded to my Deviant Art gallery. Only then I will make the videos Public. But for now, for whatever reason that is unknown to me, I decided to share it with you guys.

     

    This is only part one of a few. I don't think I will be sharing the others here, though. Unless you want me to.

     

     

  11. All he had to do was open the program to see if the error message was still going to pop up after I fixed it but no... That pinhead of my client just HAD to reinstall the program with an instance of it already running because it was taking a while to load, despite me telling him that reinstall would not change that.

     

    The result? The program got corrupted and I had to waste nearly FOUR HOURS trying to fix his shit.

     

    My entire afternoon of work wasted because the [email protected]$$ thought he knew better than me. Now the day is over and I could not attend the other three calls I have in wait and tomorrow is a holiday. I'm SO mad, right now! >_<

     

    The worst is that I couldn't fix it, after all. All's right and there is no reason for the program to not work and yet... It still refuses to even open on the screen. In the end I had to tell him to contact the software's support people.

     

    I hate it SO much when I tell someone to do or not to do something and they ignore it. So far I haven't been wrong even once when giving out these warnings. Not once!

      Sounds like my daily life since grade 10 (maybe longer) :D

       

      Work's esp annoying... yesterday i told my supervisor "i got this" (not really but the point), they turned around (after i left, i leave 30 min before everyone) got 2 others spend prob the rest of the day doing the stupid stuff that would of taken me 30 min to do my self... Worst part is? they didnt even finish it... now it's a organized mess!

       

      Annoying how people do this stuff... <_<

      You never thought about the lack of self control is what has caused this? Simply put by using your max download speed continuously for 3 hours at the same time as everyone else you collectively put huge strain on their servers. Are servers cheap in Brazil? Basically Brazil has caused it's own problems in this case.

       

      Like i said i dont agree with the 10GB cap but if what you say is true, you only have yourselves to blame for this implementation. You decided to go with Netflix and YouTube vs actual cable, and you became addicted to bandwidth.

       

      If you lived in Canada 5 years ago, to be with bell or rogers with 50GB cap would of been a minimum of $50 plus fees, could knock it down in a bundle but the bundles would normally reach over 150 a month. Once you go beyond dial-up speed does not matter but bandwidth. I'm with neither, i'm with a 3rd party reseller. Bell does not even sell my speed anymore, they are now forcing all new clients to go with the more expensive fiber.

       

      Based on their current site you get 15 down for $25 CAD, I personally would love that, i pay nearly twice the amount for half the speed and thats the cheapest plan for me where i live. Now i dont know how much you pull in... but the easiest solution is cut your cable and cut netflix, limit youtube to only uploading.

      10GB is doable, if you have control. Which by the sounds of it Brazilian citizens dont... I live off my phone, my home might have 400GB but my phone only has 5GB i rarely go over it.(i dont get penalized, just limited)

       

      Best way of hurting them is their pocket book, get a bandwidth app on to your computer find what you can cut, and try stay with in the limits. Thats all you can do (next to leaving the country)

      And whoever said Brazil has continuous download speeds? Have "unlimited" connection is one thing but our services have never been reliable enough to even compare to the quality in countries such as Canada or the US. Out of all the ISPs only two are still going to provide unlimited connection and given the recent events involving the ISPs and streaming services, absolutely no one (not even specialists) believe it has anything to do with strain on servers. Until it was bought by VIVO, for example, GVT invested heavily on their infrastructure to live up to their promise of always delivering 100% of the contracted bandwidth to their clients and they always did. It was a considerably pretty good quality in comparison to the others. It only changed recently after VIVO's acquisition. So no. It was not a matter of infrastructure.

    3. Darth Wazawai

      Darth Wazawai

      I need a new modem so I lose connection constantly, so I know how that feels...

       

      However if one provider has good quality till a acquisition it sounds like a infrastructure issue for consistency.

       

      They may claim the cap is to help invest/repair but like the pace I live in it's just for more money grab (the local not municipality gov takes for investing in future repairs, but claims it has no money)

       

      Also others might of followed due to bullying by the original one

       

      Much like how bell and Rogers is in the mobile internet landline services, what they say usually goes

      ^ unless he's sweating more than hes consuming and he cant keep up, eventually heat will kill you.

       

      Note: i walk into a oven at 200F at times so yea... i know... Your internal organs can dry up in dry heat for too long and you can suffocate in wet heat ;)

  14. It's finally here! :D

      Nice compilation. 

       

      The first one however was not the truckers fault. There is a bug were players randomly jump. This is my experience from when my truck randomly jumped whilst passing another player - http://plays.tv/video/5708e6f7688149c383/bug-report-09-04-16-12-00

      @The Imaginative Lad Thanks, man! :)

      I'm not quite sure he "jumped" due to that weird glitch. It seems more like he actually hit the rail guard on the left side of the road and lost control momentarily, causing his truck to swerve into the right lane. I didn't actually blame him, though. I did honk but didn't complain. To be honest, I've had that happen to me at least twice. I managed to keep control and not hit anyone, though. Also I think I caught both (or at least one) in video and it's in one of the previous compilations so I can backup my case. lol Regardless, that jump thing is odd. Never had it happen to me.

  15. Crashes Compilation 21 is ready. I will leave it uploading overnight, this evening so it should available by Sunday morning. :)

  17. After that traumatizing link I clicked on shared between my friends last night I feel like I need some time out and alone to mend my brain. They have been messaging me on Steam and I am just sitting here, quietly pretending I have been AFK all day. :I

  18. Me after joining a chat with a couple of friends and clicking on one of the links previously shared between them:

  19. Holy sh*t!!

    Just as I finished my shower I spotted a Brazilian yellow scorpion ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tityus_serrulatus one of these freaky freaking things: http://www.afpmb.org/sites/default/files/Living_Hazards/t_serrulatus_brazil1ByEdMoreiraMota&ScorpFils.jpg ), slowly climbing out of the drain on the floor. I was like, "HOLY SH*T!!". It hid back in the drain when I approached to hit it with an object to disable it and then capture it, though, so I had to block the drain. Tomorrow I will call the animal control, first thing in the morning, to ask directions on how to proceed with this situation.

    This species is considered to be the most dangerous in Brazil and is native of the central-west region of the country. Exactly the region where I live. The Centro de Controle de Zoonoses (our animal control service) always advises people to never touch the scorpion directly, capture it if possible and contact them. If a capture is not possible, then contact them either way ASAP. And that's what I'm gonna do in the morning.

  20. About to play some ATSMP. And I am NOT happy that I'll have to play on EU#2. I am not happy at all. In fact, I am honestly very upset.

    1. Mike Dragon

      Mike Dragon

      @Zomb Lee

      What upsets me is not the server itself, but the lack of speed limiter.

    2. Darth Wazawai

      Darth Wazawai

      Just keep to the limit and keep right, anyone complains ignore them, anyone rams you report them. I drive at full speed unless I feel like following said person or forced too (like double yellow lines, lag etc).

    3. Zomb Lee

      Zomb Lee

      Yes, I also drive at the limit, sometimes even under (my 579 only has a 455hp MX13 so I top out at 75mph can't hit the 80mph in Nevada)

      And like Eggroll said, I keep to the slow lanes, use my flashers when climbing hills and I'm 20 mph under the limit, ect...most speed demons zoom past in the left lane no problems. No one has complained to me about my speed. They just pass me and politely at that!

  21. Ok, so this happened...

     

    1. heyhococo

      heyhococo

      That was interesting xD

  22. Am I the only one who noticed ATS EU#1 server is missing? Only EU#2 and US#1 seem to be working. Whatever happened to EU#1? I haven't seen any thread talking about it or notifying users about any ongoing maintenance on it. I want my speed-limited server back up. :c

     

    But seriously. Does anyone know what's going on with it?

      Yeah noticed earlier too at least theres more on eu2 now lol :P

    Not an April Fool's prank/joke, by the way.

  24. TruckersMP não oferece mais suporte à plataforma x86 (32-bit) do Windows desde o lançamento de American Truck Simulator. Optaram por fazer assim para facilitar o desenvolvimento do mod, já que desenvolver para x86 e x64 daria muito trabalho e causaria grande demora nos updates. Como ATS só funciona em x64, os desenvolvedores do mod unificaram o multiplayer de ambos os jogos em apenas um cliente de 64-bit. Eles fizeram diversos anúncios antes e depois do lançamento de ATS para avisar os jogadores sobre a mudança. Como este aqui, por exemplo: Infelizmente, a única maneira de você poder jogar em multiplayer agora, será fazer um upgrade de plataforma. Como não dá para simplesmente mudar o Windows de 32-bit para 64-bit, você terá que formatar seu computador para instalar uma cópia limpa de alguma versão x64 do Windows. Lamento, mas não há outro jeito. :\
