  1. In response to teaching people to reading road markings, here is a list: (Based on my experience, following the Highway Code regulations in the UK) I may have gone a bit off-topic here but could be useful as a guide. Double SOLID white lines (attached picture below) Double white lines where the line nearest you is solid. This means you MUST NOT cross or straddle it unless it is safe and you need to enter adjoining premises or a side road. You may cross the line if necessary, provided the road is clear, to pass a stationary vehicle, or overtake a pedal cycle, horse or road maintenance vehicle, if they are travelling at 10 mph (16 km/h) or less. I see too many people trying to overtake in double white line road sections, which ultimately results in a collision, simply because the driver cannot see the hazard/dangers coming around the corner. BROKEN and SOLID white lines (attached picture below) Double white lines where the line nearest to you is broken. This means you may cross the lines to overtake if it is safe, provided you can complete the manoeuvre before reaching a solid white line on your side. White direction arrows on the road indicate that you need to get back onto your side of the road. IF the line closest to you is broken, yes, under the law, you have permission to overtake, BUT, beware of oncoming traffic hazards approaching you. It is your responsibility to ensure that other people CAN SEE YOU. However, if the line nearest to you is SOLID, then you do not have permission to overtake. Hazard and Centre Lines (attached pictures below) A broken white line. This marks the centre of the road. When this line lengthens and the gaps shorten, it means that there is a hazard ahead. Do not cross it unless you can see the road is clear and wish to overtake or turn off. If you compare the pictures, you may notice there is a slight difference between these lines.

  2. J-Spec Trucks: The New Cool Trend

    My J-Spec Truck: Link: https://www.worldoftrucks.com/en/image_detail.php?id=0000000000357231&back=online_profile.php%3Fid%3D914382 (Screenshot went over the maximum upload picture size) Specification (From my World of Trucks profile page): DAF XF Euro 6 Super Space 6X2/4 Midlift (I think most UK haulage firms have this chassis...I think) 460 HP engine 2,300 NM / 1,000-1,425 RPM Engine:MX-13 340 Euro 6 (Clean and efficient) Gearbox:ZF 12AS2531TO R The company skin currently used is for my VTC in ETS2MP, so I apologise if that isn't J-Spec.
  3. Automatically kick players who spam their horn

    -1 What if there aren't any players around for miles? And the player just wants to toot via their horn just to say Hi. I think this can be an issue on low population servers and in my opinion, a simple warning would be better than an auto kick since its just unnecessary and useless. If there's a player tooting their horn continuously, just ignore him, or reduce your volume. Simple. Why create more work for the devs when this is a very easy solution to solve? I think the devs would rather focus on other things than silly players who want to spam their horns continuously just for a laugh.

       thnx for following me and my pleasure buddy..:wub:

  5. Allow fatigue simulation

    Read the previous posts.
  6. The snow is getting heavier and heavier outside...imagine the chaos in-game if that happened.

      << Snow mod not installed. :D

  7. Do you drive without GPS?

    Driving without the GPS sets yourself a challenge and encourages realism and simulation in-game. It also gives me something to do such as looking at road signs and the scenery.
  8. LED lights

    More LEDs = More lag and FPS drops. By the way, why do u want to know whether an admin is undercover or not? It's not like u have done anything wrong, besides, those who are afraid of admins banning them are the ones that often break the rules.
  9. Adding a non-collision zone for the parking on Bergen - Oslo Road

    Grow up. Look outside. You don't see non-collision zones in real life do you? You have the right to go wherever you like, but you should have understood the risks of going to busy areas.
  10. Limit the Heavy cargos and Doubles trailers to EU1

    Horrible, absolutely horrible idea. Those of us who go on EU#1 want to have a smooth drive whilst getting cargo safely to their destinations. We don't want more trolls and idiots coming over when all they want to do is just speed around causing more chaos and collisions. We want to enjoy the scenery whilst driving on the motorway/side roads. I would rather have ghost towns than people who cannot even follow traffic laws properly. Just because EU#1 has less people than EU#2 doesn't mean that you should transfer the cargo restrictions to another server in order to get more people on EU#1. All you are doing is not solving the problem, but causing the problem to be transferred somewhere else where other players don't want to it to happen. I went to EU#1 because players actually knew how to behave properly and watch out for others instead of just caring themselves like this is some kind of racing game where there is a prize for being 1st. If this suggestion actually was implemented, players who enjoy real fatigue simulation will probably have nowhere else to go and probably leave MP since they don't want to deal with the trolls or idiots. I would rather enjoy SP than dealing with more idiots who only care about themselves and their infinite money.
  11. Auto-Kick for people who use too much lights / beacons

    I'm neutral on this suggestion: Yes, it may prevent some people from receiving eye strain from all those bright lights and could potentially increase FPS in certain areas. But, it may be quite difficult to implement this suggestion, depending on what the moderators think. We do not need an auto kick for high beams by the way. It is incredibly hard to notice other oncoming players when driving at night with winter mod enabled especially when there aren't any streetlights and when there are a low amount of players near you.
  12. @FernandoCR [ESP] I also usually take WoT jobs so I never really went above 90 km/h. But I never knew EU#1 had a speed limit of 110 km/h.
  13. EU#1 gives players a realistic and enjoyable experience whilst abiding to the 90km/h speed limit. I quite enjoy driving at a slow and steady pace whilst enjoying the Scandinavian countryside without having to worry about any reckless drivers round the corner. I believe changing the rules will cause an increase in chaos and reckless drivers. It also means many VTCs who host their convoys on the EU#1 server, cannot endure any peace and quiet, since they will be worried someone will come in the fast lane and jeopardize their convoy. This will mean there is a increase in VTC staff and players asking TMP staff for a private server, because they simply cannot trust public servers. Doing this can lead to more money being spent on servers which could potentially see their financial income being squeezed especially when TMP is funded via donations. Absolutely -1 from me. Whether it is financially or to the community.
  14. [VOTE] Which road do you like to run most when playing the game ?

    For me: E4 (Stockholm-Helsingborg) E20 (Esbjerg-Malmo) E45 (Kiel-Aalborg) E6 (Malmo - Oslo) E22 (Malmo - Linkoping via Kalmar) I mostly go around Scandinavia to deliver loads since it has quite nice scenery. And the road interchanges are quite different to each other compared to the ETS2 map (no dlcs). You will see me going around whether u are in EU#1 or EU#2.
