  1. Imagine if, before humans the planet was inhabited by robots and androids, some of them were experimenting with creating 'life' out of biological matter. Then one day, that biological matter became sentient and overthrew the robot civilization and started mankind. Now thousands of years later, the robots are on the verge of taking back what was rightfully theirs...

    It's something to think about

    🤔

      I'm afraid not. All there is on the back is a list of the songs (which is also present on the front, as you can see). No mention of any specific artist, band or even the company who recorded the compilation or distributor.

  3. I haven't slept i16 hours, the real ops event is at 2 AM, and I've got no coffee. I'll be fiiiiiiine…
     

  4. So, I found out the hard way that its not a good idea to drive tired.
    At least I had my caring friends to make sure I was ok and not make fun of me via an old ad campaign.

    The original ad is here:

      I know there was times I was driving while tired, but not to the point I'd snooze. It reminds me of what happened to me a few days ago. I was driving on the highway, and someone was in the middle lane. I went to overtake the guy during a very light turn, but he just kept going straight and going into my lane, and I blasted my horn while I was nearly hugging the median barrier. Not sure if the other driver was distracted or sleepy, but he scared the crap out of me.

      I guess he was tired of turning.

      Yeah that's me. That was an old JB server I used to play on every day, I guess you could say I was addicted to it lol. Long story short it shut down late 2015 and about a year later I found TMP. I had no idea this video existed until about a year ago when a friend of mine showed it to me and asked if it was me. A lot of fun memories from that place, I still miss it to this day. :(

      The black and white one with police lights and name on the sides. You can't miss it!

  8. You know, they always say you should be careful when it comes to fake news, but I think this is the one exception xD

     

  9. An important PSA regarding overtaking and desync:

    So recently I've seen a couple of people banned for ramming trucks off the road when overtaking (moving over before they're clear). These people have said that on their screens they thought they were clear. Since I have witness this happen first hand, when a friend will overtake, ram me but claim they were clear I decided to run a little test.


    In an obscure part of the map far away from any players, two of my friends and I set up to try and capture what we  suspected was happening. I would be the test dummy truck, driving at a normal speed when someone (my friend) would overtake me. I instructed him to "move over when it looked clear on his screen" (we decided that given most overtakes that happen in crowded areas of TMP don't ensure a safe distance before re-joining the lane) we wanted to try and get an accurate representation of someone overtaking a truck. We commenced the test and just as we expected, even though it was clear on my friends screen to re-join the lane, in actual fact, on my screen it was not and I got rammed off the road.
    We recorded this test which you can watch here:

    it shows both our perspectives so you can get a clear picture of what we were trying to prove.

     

    Why did we do this?

    Im sure most of you out there are well aware of such an occurrence and I'm sure that you take appropriate precautions and overtake using the popular overtaking guide (provided below) infact its mentioned in that very guide to watch out for desync. This is more aimed at less regular players, or maybe new players to online trucking who are unaware about such desync issues. Hopefully if this is you, you can avoid such a wreck and possible a ban; which would otherwise be likely to happen.
    if you want more information on overtaking, please look at this guide:

     

    Please note

    that although this test was conducted in a public server, we took many precautions to ensure it was conducted in as safe a manor as possible.
    The test was performed at off peak times, in a remote corner of the map with a third friend 'spotting' using the tab list to inform us of any trucks in the area.

  10. When you're on the CD road but you're trying to remain calm.

     

  11. I was wondering if any tech savvy forum users could help explain my recent... anomaly? idk.

    So long story short my headphones broke. I found an old cheap pair from about 2014 sitting in my drawer completely un opened!
    and apart from the fact that they're cheap as h**l, they have a weird sound to them. Pretty much they don't play back any voice sounds. Let me explain.
    Say I'm watching a video of someone playing a game, I'll hear all the sounds of the game just fine, but can not hear the people at all.
    Or if I'm listening to music, I can hear the music just fine but can not hear the vocals at all! This happens on every video I watch regardless of what it is. Its pretty cool actually since occasionally there will be a song/video that I can just hear the vocals in, but they're played back in such a way that it sounds like they're being played inside a house really loud and I'm outside hearing a muffled version of it.

    These are obviously not a long term fix for having a proper set of headphones but I don't thi I'll ever get rid of them just because of the incredible experience you get pretty much hearing any song without its vocals.

    So does anyone have the slightest clue as to whats causing this?

      That's a reference I wasn't expecting to find in the forums. lol

  12. So I just found out about the scout car physics bug the hard way...
     I was exiting the London service when my car shot forward almost resulting in a crash. I decided to test it out and, well I'll let the video show.


    The first test I lost all control and shot into a barrier, the next one was more dangerous. I shot forward at such speeds I flew into oncoming lanes and lost traction as I regained control. This was a scare thing to happen and I'd like to warn all car drivers about this. I should also mention that during these tests I was not pressing the accelerator hard at all, maybe only a 3rd of the way if that. I'm not making a forum post about this since I see its been done already. all we can do now is be very careful.

  13. So a few friends and I decided to play around with the bridge near Astoria in Oregon, I was trying for about 10 minutes to get past the barriers when the bridge was up, and when it finally worked it wasn't what I was expecting...

      So....... The bridge is a lie! Welp, the more you learn. Collision box isn't altered when the bridge moves.

      Saddly. I was hoping I'd fall down or get caught in the bridge
