      Current development status [overview + info]   12/04/17

      Hey truckers, quite alot happened recently and we are getting many questions from you. To help you getting your answer much quicker, here is a recap of the latest information in regards to the Italy DLC, the Special Transport DLC, the wintermod and the latest game updates.   SCS released the Italy DLC. This DLC is not properly working in multiplayer at this moment. Until official support has been added, use the DLC on your own risk. You won't get banned for driving in the Italy area, but you might experience issues with missing NCZ and other minor bugs.   American Truck Simulator is not supported for quite some days now.   The Special Transport DLC is not guarantueed to be included within the first few patches. Due to the complexity of the situation of how the content of this DLC operates, it is possible that support for this specific DLC will take a long time, or in worst case scenario won't be supported at all. Please bear with us and give our developers enough time to make sure everything goes alright. Putting pressure on them or creating a massive amount of topics about it is not going to change the speed of development.    As always, our team is working hard to make sure we can give you the best experience. We hope to provide you a new version of our mod with support for ATS real soon, but we are currently not able to give you an estimated date of release. We thank you for your understanding.

  1. It is the first time EU#1 has players sitting in queue...

    1. FirestarteR93


      If you haven't seen that before, I'll take a guesss that:


  2. Server Europa 3

    ^ And EU#1.
  3. Steam Autumn Sale has started! Nominate your favourite games till Nov 28! Yeah :)

      Expect an increase in server numbers this Black Friday weekend due to more people having ETS2 :-) 

    3. ScaniaFan89


      ETS2 " The Labour of Love " Award


      ATS " The Cash Cow " Award ( i suggested that ) 

    4. VortexHauler


      I've put ETS2 as the World is Grim Enough Let's Just All Get Along Award

  4. Information messages in GPS

    The reason why signs and traffic lights exist is to prevent crashes from happening. What's happening right now is people just seem to care about going fast with their 700hp+ engines and speeding to at least 170km/h. Obviously at that speed, we know what's going to happen. Whether it is a truck or a car, people just seem to have lost their minds. Back to main topic, this will help players who want to be warned about what is going on ahead. Currently, the text-based chat system just doesn't seem to be effective due to the amount of text chat especially in high population cities on EU#2.
  5. Thanks for the follow! Much appreciated :) 

    1. VortexHauler


      @Smalley - Truckers.FM No problem! I appreciate the hard work that you guys do on TFM! Keep on Trucking!

  6. Information messages in GPS

    We will also need to create a guide about what these individual symbols mean so people can understand. That is if this system gets the go ahead. This may be beneficial for new players.
  7. Information messages in GPS

    The administrators can also look at the traffic map based on where the reports are popping up on the map (Example below). Example: https://goo.gl/QWCQL7 But I guess this is just an idea for now.
  8. Information messages in GPS

    This is a great idea since it will be like the roadside variable message signs which you can see in reality. An addition to your idea @Marteorito but you could also add traffic duration alerts to tell other players how long it will take to get from one place to another on the same motorway such as the example below. However, this could take up a lot of server processing power if you take into consideration of how many alerts are going to be sent to each player especially in the Benelux area. Example: https://goo.gl/PaeMkM
  9. I just saw an admin between Trelleborg and Kalmar :) Lol

    1. SimulatorExperiencer


      :D  did  u get his signature :D  haha  jks

  10. Auto Kick Cars

    Solutions to your problem: 1. Go to EU #1 or EU #3 - it is quieter and cars are banned in those servers. 2. Record using video software and Report them via TruckersMP website. 3. Don't get mad with the trolls as you are basically feeding them.
  11. Players ID numbers sorted ascending

    Yeah but even if the list is in order of distance, then how do people even search for a particular person if it's in a busy area? There could be thousands near u e.g. Rotterdam
  12. Suggestion Name: Players ID numbers sorted ascending Suggestion Description: At the moment, it takes ages to search for the player's ID number and by the time you search for the ID number, the rulebreaker would have already F7+Entered and has gone on to another area of the map. Any example images: Nope, sorry. Why should it be added?: By sorting the list in ascending order, it allows us, players, to look for the player's ID number much quicker than scrolling through the entire list for that one person. This can be very handy especially when in busy areas.
  13. Kat_pw CCTV Down lol. maybe too much traffic

  14. Smart GPS

    I also agree that someone has been deleted comments since I posted at 14:40 today. Still, +1 to this amazing idea!
  15. Players could add Hazard triangle on the minimap?

    No they won't since admins will be watching who is putting up the hazard symbols. If there is too many, the admins will react and see who has placed the hazard symbols and ban them. So instead of looking at the in-game reports, they can immediately look at where the hazard symbols are placed on the map.
