  1. Want to hear something unfair? The fact that us Veterans and people who like to play the servers as they are meant to be played get punished for following the rules as if it is a Simulation on the Simulation server. Realistically, I can drive all over Europe on the highways without having to repair my truck from stupid accidents every 5 minutes. If it's a simulation, I should be able do that. I'm about done with people who will relentlessly speed uncontrollably and crash into others. Also, because ProMods doesn't have Arcade, maybe you could use the simulator as a simulator. Just a thought. *also, don't ban me for this. I never insulted anyone, I am stating facts and my opinion, I never named any names, and the things that sound "toxic" are me sarcastically wording things. Agreed. Maybe not quite 90 in the city, but definitely more than 60.
  2. To be fair, you've never asked. Obviously nobody is going to spend all day, but a team of 10-15 doing it some of the time could work. Me, and I'm sure at least 10 of your 3 million users would be willing to mess around in the game and find bugs. And with recruitment or whatever, it's practically never open and any development or testing position takes lots of a process. IMO if you're a certain rank or above (like Veteran III or whatever) and go through a quick review process you could be able to test a beta for bugs. Just my opinion, but what do I know about development. (i mean that in a non-sarcastic way btw, i know hardly anything about development) EXACTLY!
  3. Yeah, others' trailers are super low resolution. Also, though my PC is horrible and I typically get some freezes, in SP since 1.36 I have been getting hardly any. In MP I was getting freezes as bad at 1 min+, and horrible framerate regardless. The thing that kills me is that they had an entire month to figure this stuff out, and yet this is still a thing.
  4. It does this in SP as well since 1.36
  5. If anything it should be the other way around. Anybody who has played the mod for this long most likely does it for realism. Also, people would complain about it being unfair. I've never felt the need to go above the speed limit (highest anywhere in map is 100), and if you want to you can play in arcade.

    Surprised I'm first to say the Peterbilt 579. I like the interior, and it looks nice. I also like T680 for driving, but the W900 looks great and it's nice to do matching combos with. The 389 can look nice, but super hard to drive.

    Really Surprised

    Honestly I would be fine if ETS2 took a while to update, maybe people would give ATS some love for once.

    so now we are saying that people who actually drive realistically and use it as a- dare I say- simulator are just "not good at speeding"? I drive at the speed limit because it's a simulator, not because I can't handle speed.

    Also, going 150kph equals no realism. Yet here we are. I agree, but I do propose an idea: Maybe TMP could add a rank of people like game admins, but only to an extent. Not allowed to ban, so no banning everyone, but then there could be a lot more scattered. They could be allowed to give out warnings and have some form of authority over normal players, and if they find anyone who they think (from a professional standpoint) should be banned, they could report it to Game Admins. Also allowed to control traffic, do some more of the traffic managing to take some of the load off of the admins so that they can focus on reports and such. I don't know, this is a lose-lose situation.

    Okay, here's my take on all of this: As someone who drives realistic, follows real-life traffic rules (I don't care if the game won't fine you for running stop signs, I am going to stop at stop signs... stuff like that), and drives as if I had a 65mph in ATS or 90kph in ETS2 limiter... I am tired of getting my doors blown off by people with their huge Scanias with windshields full of thingies and technically illegal lights galore who are going 180 down the highway. If you are going to play multiplayer, you are doing so because you want to drive with other people. By driving with other people, you acknowledge that you are supposed to drive nicely around them because they are real people. In SP, you can make a family sedan go flying into the ocean and nobody will care except you. In MP, people are affected by what you do. If you want to go extremely fast, apex corners, throw aggressive blocks, and drive like a maniac, go play a racing game like Forza. TruckersMP exists to make the game more realistic in the sense that you can communicate with other drivers, drivers are (in theory) more realistic than in-game AI, and many other things. I'm just ranting here, but TL;DR: if you want to drive faster than you would be able to in real life and cut people off, go to Arcade or don't bother with multiplayer.

    Traffic Warning System

    +1 it would help a lot. This most likely won't happen, but maybe the TruckersMP team could hire field workers? Not authorized to ban or kick, but to report problem spots, traffic, direct traffic, etc.
  12. I have a potato PC, and although useful for the 60% of users with good PCs, the other 40% of us will get more lag. Draw distance increased means more strain on the server. The more strain on the server, the slower everyone gets.
  13. Yeah... the game requires 4gb... I'm surprised if you can run it without MP. I'd think it wouldn't let you. But a dedicated graphics card of any sort is better than integrated graphics, just saying.
  14. I have an AMD E2 w/ integrated graphics, don't talk to me about powerful machines. I can run it just fine. What're your specs? @GEB 031 Space (MG)
  15. I still hope we get physics, at least on one server...
