  1. For 1.38 B-double ADR/food tanker + ownable. Shift Cargo mount point on lowloader to match other cargos, so it's possible to carry say the two diggers on a flatbed. For 1.39 MIxed cargos, for ownable trailers, pick up one load per trailer/container slot. Multidrop cargo, collect once, unload 2+ times (or multiple loading locations, one drop off).
  2. Couldn't you have the player upload info.sii as well ? Would do away with the need to have all those map/cargo DLC tickboxes as that file contains all that info.
  3. ETS2 1.37 feels like SCS had more planned but couldn't get it working. Aside from the Sounds/FMOD, the only thing added was buyable Food Cistern trailer, but the only liquid you can fill with it is Milk.
  4. Seen enough of these "Idiots on the Road" videos to know the idiot is also the one filming. It's just the following bad driving: 1. Drive too fast for conditions. 2. Don't slow down no matter what is happening ahead. 3. Tailgate the truck ahead. 4. Don't brake or slow down if there is a crash ahead. Bonus points for having your friend drive like an idiot just so you can get extra content. Sure you get really close up footage of the crashes, when the truck filming crashes thru the wreckage, but it's also unrealistic when you see crashes that wouldn't have happened if the youtube truck actually used it's brakes.
  5. 8x4 most of the time, as I own a few B-triple trailers and I'm too lazy to swap trucks all the time. I do have a 4x2 for when I know I'll only be doing light weight on single trailers.
  6. The TMP mod team already closed C-D road as an April Fools day joke earlier this year. Doing the same for other roads as events is do able, however I expect it took some time to edit the entire road off the map.
  7. Both Convoys take place in the same exact time, on different days. Due to timezones, this means it's 2:30am to 4:30am local time for me. I've no interest in the Freeroam server, either. So basically you've structured your events to not even consider timezones, hence people in countries like Australia and Japan are going to find it difficult or impossible to attend. Perhaps next year you can make an effort to make everyone welcome, not just EU+US.
  8. Most of the map DLCs are $26 in Australia, due to the bad exchange rates. Used to be 1:1 with the Euro, it just doesn't make sense for me to pay 44% more because of things I have no control over.
  9. Voted no, there are some traffic lights in the game it just doesn't make sense to stop at. 1. T junction where one of the connections is blocked off in the map. (hence a straight or corner) 2. Crossroad where one of the roads is blocked on both sides (hence a straight) 3. Road construction where one lane is closed. 100m of one way and you can clearly see no one else is coming. Probably 50% of the traffic lights are like this, without the AI traffic, there is no reason to wait at red lights. Maybe the devs could make a list of traffic lights that are dangerous to cross at red, but that still leaves problems. Some traffic lights charge to red without warning, there is no yellow before. Plus trucks don't stop quickly, so it doesn't take long to run a red simply because it just changed.
  10. Even if we just choose say the top 5 cars people wanted (that are unique enough to justify). Say the Aldi, Volvo XC70, one of the Renault, one of the VW, and of course the Volkswagen Transporter van (event staff get the ST version, everyone else gets the plain one). No rush, they could do one every 2-3 months.
  11. I remember when the speed limit was 150km/h (limited by truck). Sure it was fun driving at that speed on a deserted back road, but driving at those speeds on a server with 2000+ other players is a recipe for pain. Having the entire map looking like C-D road, with crashed trucks everywhere and Skodas in trees, isn't an improvement. Besides which I do External Contracts/External Market jobs for WoT, so I'm limited to 90km/h by those anyway.
  12. Ah it's a forum rank, I thought it was the ingame load (eg External Contract) and was wondering why it wasn't working.
  13. Odd thing is, TruckAtHome is the first WoT event where we could use our owned trailers. None of the previous events made use of the External Market. I do like the custom trailers in events, the christmas 2019 event/trailer is be best out of all the WoT trailers I've used.
  14. Usually own trailer, so I can do B-double or B-triple loads anywhere. However, as I do mostly ADR loads, some things like Diesel can only be single company trailers.
  15. Nice to know I'm not the only one used to B-triples. For visual aid for what a "b-triple (short container)" looks like. This is my 3x 20ft containers setup. I also tried one with 3x B trailers. The extra 5th wheel on the back caused problems with loading in some companies. Been also experimenting with custom B trailers, and mixed consists.
