  1. Have a nice weekend, fellow truckers. 🙂

      You too buddy! 

  2. Auszug aus dem TruckersMP Regelwerk: (Quelle: https://truckersmp.com/rules) Das bedeutet, dass dein letzter Ban noch nicht verjährt ist.
  3. From the SCS Software website of Euro Truck Simulator 2: (Source: https://eurotrucksimulator2.com, all highlighted texts formatted by me ) Differencebetween describes the difference between games and simulations as following: (Source: http://www.differencebetween.net/technology/difference-between-games-and-simulations/, all highlighted texts formatted by me) According to the above descriptions and definition, ETS 2 would be a hybrid: Entertaining, educational, strategic, detailed and accurate.
  4. Thank you very much for your follow! :)


  5. When you start a new topic you can chose at the top if it will be "content" or "poll".
  6. To drive at a speed that one feels safe at is not necessarily a safe speed. It is actually a prime example of overconfidence in ones driving skills which can have serious consequences. One could argue that the speed limit should be lifted because every player is responsible for his actions and that in case of an incident he will be subject to punishment. But punishment does not prevent incidents from happening and especially not that another innocent players game experience is ruined. Speed limit however does, because less and reasonable speed gives more time to react and with that gives the chance to avoid or reduce the number of incidents caused by excessive speed.
  7. Have a beautiful Sunday everyone! ☀️🌝

  8. IMO, the overtaking player and the player being overtaken act reckless for the reasons given below. Both players drive too fast. The player being overtaken accelerates while he is overtaken, which unnecessarily stretches the overtaking manoeuver and by that increases the risk of an incident. He also does not make any attempt to slow down to enable the player overtaking to merge back into the lane. The overtaking player overtakes in a course of the road that he can not oversee and that he can not see oncoming traffic, which increases the risk of an incident. He also misjudge the length of his vehicle and collides with the player being overtaken. However, if you show that to a game moderator he will likely ban the overtaking player for reckless driving/ inappropriate overtaking manoeuver.
  9. To be honest, I am thankful that it is not like a real road. If real drivers behaved as reckless, ignorant and over-confident in a real traffic congestion, driving would be already forbidden. On a serious note, I went there only a few times because of a job but never intentionally. Though I followed the speed limit on that road given by the GPS (60 km/h + 80 km/h) still some players managed to overtake me inappropriately, leading to a collision with my vehicle. I guess the good side of all this was that after I reported the perpetrators they were banned for some time or even permanently (those with a previous punishment history.
  10. I also advise to keep your safety distance at all times so you have time and space for evasive manoeuvers. In the video you have a distance to the previous vehicle of approx. 1 second only. Taken your speed of 110 km/h into consideration that equals a distance of only 30.5 meters. The safety distance should be at least half of your speed in meters (110 / 2 = 55 meters) or 3 seconds.
  11. It was written in the Road to Simulation blog post that as ATS does not provide an Arcade server they decided to put a speed limit of 130 km/h. https://truckersmp.com/blog/167
  12. Imagine a virtual world without a speed limit where you could drive your vehicle as fast as possible.

    Which vehicle with which engine and equipment would you use?

    Which route would you pick?

      If we are supposed to imagine such world in ETS2, I'd probably do the same as now. Scania Streamline, 480HP, almost J-Spec. Routes, the ones that I'd get from the World of Trucks external contracts, preferably long ones. And no matter the world's speed, WoT has a limit of 90 Km/h with which I'm perfectly comfortable, so... If I wanted to drive as fast as possible, I'd be playing other games where that's the goal, driving fast to win races, to complete missions or whatever other reasons.

  13. As the name already suggests, speed limits are there to regulate the speed. No, this is a only a modification which is based on a video game. Do not abolish the law just because people are still being murdered every day despite the law prohibits it. No, but I think the speed limit discussion is unnecessary.
  14. ^ Ich finde in diesem Fall einen 7 Tage Ban übertrieben. Selbst wenn es beabsichtigtes Blocking gewesen wäre, hätte ein Kick oder Zwangs-TP meiner Meinung nach ausgereicht. Ich wünsche dir viel Erfolg für deinen Ban Appeal.
