    Old DLC Updates?

    They updated the flags DLC with a few new (non-country) flags! Im sure they are going to be reworking more DLC's as time goes on though. I beleive at some point they did say the Scwarzmuller DLC will be updated to work like the Krone DLC, so maybe by 1.35? I do agree though that the USA paint jobs DLC is lacking in quality, even at its release.

    Winter mod - DLC or TMP

    In my opinion it should already be part of the game, not even DLC.

    Thoughts on Calais to Duisburg route

    Its just a popular road. Don't know why some people fantasize over it, and why other people fantasize over hating it. I just happen to drive along it a lot because it is a popular road with lots of people.

    Engine sound

    1. You can't be banned for changing the sounds of the truck, providing you are doing it correctly 2. Just changing the sound inside the truck won't make the sound outside any different 3. Technically, according to the rules, there isn't any requirement your truck even has to have sounds whatsoever §3.1 - Truck modding Your vehicle must be functional. The truck must have the chassis, cabin, wheels and headlights. https://truckersmp.com/rules Not to say that its not possible to be banned for overall excessive save editing though If you were banned, make an appeal at https://truckersmp.com/appeals If they denied the appeal or you feel that the ban should not have been issued, you should submit a feedback ticket at: https://truckersmp.com/feedback

    Truck suggestion

    Special transport trailers are not supported in MP (due to the size), though I still recommend getting the DLC if you don't have it because there are a few extra beacons you can use on your truck with the DLC (which look pretty nice). The heavy cargo DLC is fully supported in TMP. I personally use either my Scania R 2016 4x2 low cab for anything I know I most likely won't be going over 70-80 km/h with (I just personally like how well it actually can handle these trailers, and how stable it is in doing so still), or my Scania R 2009 8x4 (pretty self explanatory) for anything im not doing long distance or if there's a lot of people on the route I plan to take. Both with top-of-the-line 730 hp V8 engines. With how this game works, you can haul any trailer with any truck and configuration, providing you have the skills to do so. (Though I wouldn't recommend any less than 500hp for trailers 40t+ unless you are getting a gearbox with more gears/shorter overall drive ratio such as the ZF 16 speed or the Scania/Volvo 12+2) 8x4 chassis isn't nessecary, but its a nice thing to have for heavy haul. (much easier to make tight turns in cities with more weight+traction pulling the trailer) My best suggestion for long distance heavy haul (providing you will average 80-100 km/h): Any truck with a 500+ hp engine, coupled to the shorter variant of the 12 speed gearbox (the extra gears aren't nessecary as long as you stay above 500 hp)) If you plan on going a bit faster than 100 km/h then you should use the longer 12 gear gearbox, definitely with 600hp+.

    What are the best gaming headsets?

    Depends on your budget and how you've got your PS4 set up. (I don't know what ports a PS4 has on it for this kind of use) I haven't ever spent more than $25 on headphones, not to say I haven't experienced "high quality" ones, its just I look for alternative brands that make practically the same product for less cost. (Eg. Monoprice, but I don't think they make any products that are "directly compatible" with the PS4. Though their quality is pretty great, providing you aren't throwing them around and purposely bending them in weird ways, which some product reviewers seem to think is a good test?) Should avoid almost everything you see in "gaming" stores unless you know its a good quality brand.

      @NotSoFancyFox

      You can use alot of materials that are present in the game on your truck license plate. Also, this works with the plates in the windows too. (Anything thats not a UI material most likely won't work, don't know why exactly but its probably just how the materials work in the game)

      Its possible to do this because some of the ingame license plates have specific materials on them, so anything with editable text I believe you can add the materials to it.

      I might just write a guide for this if I have the time :)

    Hot topic #13: ETS and ATS 1.34

    I like the sounds of the MAN over any other truck, and I think the model is surprisingly nice in quality considering its not the newest model, but otherwise the other stuff doesn't really matter too much to me.
  12. Yep, the skoda is the worst with it. Certain vehicles perform better than others. The bumps have weird effects and im guessing it has something to do with wheel speeds. I'm sure SCS knows about this by now though. (Im going to check their forums really quick ) EDIT: Theres nothing I can find on their forums about it, so if anyone else wants to see if you can create a bug report on there, that would be great (I don't have an account on their forums )

    Question on trailer editing

    They can be made, however they are against the rules of TruckersMP. Since there are no triple trailers in ETS2 by default, they are not allowed. However triple trailers are in ATS, so you can use them there.
  14. ^ @tommy 135 The Mighty Griffin DLC support and the Daf Tuning DLC support require you to have those DLC's with the game. https://store.steampowered.com/app/461244/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2__Mighty_Griffin_Tuning_Pack/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/461249/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2__DAF_Tuning_Pack/ Make sure the mods are all in the correct folder. Make sure the mods are activated in the mod manager. Also, you cannot enable these modifications while having started ETS2 from the TMP launcher. You are supposed to modify your truck via singleplayer, then load multiplayer once you are satisfied with the modifications. Although now we're on 1.34 so it won't really matter anyways, until this mod is updated.
