    Thoughts on Calais to Duisburg route

    The route between Duisburg and Calais and its surrounding area are just one tiny part of beautiful Europe. And TruckerMP is definitely more than Calais-Duisburg, even if questionable "idiots on the road" videos paint another picture.
  2. I not only record all incidents but also all "near incidents" that I get involved in, just in case the other player tries to get away with a report that he/ she is mainly responsible for. Oh, and about the chat - that I have disabled (F9).

    Das Straßenbild hat sich meinem Empfinden nach bereits positiv verändert und ist nicht mehr so Scania-lastig. Meine erste Testfahrt mit dem neuen MAN habe auch ich fast geschafft (GB - Italien) und ich bin mehr als zufrieden.
  4. I do not make use of the CB but prefer external communication software.

    Should Truckersmp disable the speedlimiter?

    In case you have not noticed yet, I would like to point out that this is a forum to exchange ideas, opinions and to have lively discussions. Your thoughts are welcome, and nobody is trying to change your mind. If you however do not want others to comment on your input, I suggest you start writing a diary.

    Should Truckersmp disable the speedlimiter?

    If this would be a racing simulation, I would agree. However, it is not. I agree that 80kph in built-up areas is unrealistic. Because in real life you are mostly limited to 50 kph or even less in built-up areas. If you disabled the feature that shows other road traffic participants on your GPS map, you would be well advised to also slow down or even come to a stop to avoid causing an accident. I would like to remind you that the reduced maximum speed limit was introduced by the TruckersMP team due to the high amount of accidents caused by players driving at excessive speed. So the problem are obviously not the players that drive at reasonable speed. Those players also do not get scared or traumatized, they just get annoyed by players that mistake this simulator with a racing game or destruction derby. You agreed to follow the rules when you joined the multiplayer, so according to your logic that makes you a slave too. Simulation is not a restriction of freedom, it is a simplified reproduction of reality. And in reality, there are also rules to follow. I hope this helps you to clear your blurry idea of a simulation.

    I forgot to fill the fuel tank. Oh no.

    I have never ran out of fuel. That would be a total lack of route planning.

    Remove speed limits from EU#4 server.

    Of course! EU#4 is the only server where the removal of the speed limit makes sense. (Still I like your possible solution for most trolling better.)

    Possible solution for most trolling

    At present, EU#1 does not allow cars.

    Ist das erlaubt?

    Wenn ich mich nicht irre, gibt es im Forum ein Thema in dem Spieler erfragen können ob ihre angedachten Modifikationen erlaubt sind. Schon allein aus diesem Grund kann keine Rede von einer Art Hexenjagd sein. Wenn ein Spieler sich vorab nicht ausreichend informiert und einem Game Moderator eine unzulässige Modifikation auffällt, muss der Spieler damit rechnen gesperrt zu werden bis die Modifikationen regelkonform sind.

    Is this normal?

    In general, no one may be discriminated on account of sex, descent, race, language, homeland, origin, religion, religious or political views or disability. A violation against this principle is not only a violation of the rules but more importantly a crime. Please report these players immediately, as the international and open-minded community of TruckersMP does not tolerate such behavior.

    @Pillow_, thank you for opening this suggestion for discussion. @FernandoCR [ESP], thank you for creating this suggestion. It is the logical consequence of numerous lively discussions about the partially chaotic situation on the servers nowadays. Though it remains doubtful that it will change (let alone solve) the situation of the Calais-Duisburg area, it will certainly improve the overall game experience for all players and it will additionally give a boost of realism. Also, it will reveal if players that prefer to drive at excessive speeds do so for the sake of the speed or rather for the sake of a highly probability to collide sooner or later with another player. I also see a high potential to reduce the workload of game moderators and eventually make their work more effective. IMO, it is definitely worth to give it a try for a reasonable amount of time (e.g. 6 months) and see how it will develop.

    AFK kick timelimit

    I strongly doubt it would be in the interest of the TruckersMP team to give special privileges to addicts (=smokers). Furthermore, you can visit the restrooms before or (even better) during the start of the multiplayer. A vehicle can be build in singleplayer. Care do explain in particular what part of reconnecting to the multiplayer mod is so difficult for you, besides of clicking some buttons and have some patience?

    New Police design (Europe)

    Truth be told, I would only recognize the shown vehicle as a police car by its blue emergency lights.

    Anyone notice a difference with car handling recently?

    Dear children, please be careful when making test drives at excessive speeds. i recommend that you switch to the non-collision EU#4 server first to avoid getting reported for reckless driving.
