  1. enjoyed the convoy on Saturday, great event and looking forward to the next one, I was in the blue and grey Scania 6x2.  getting up the ramp in Calais was interesting, took a few attempts as the truck couldn't get traction and would go half way up and just sit wheel spinning

      Hey! I'm really glad you enjoyed the convoy on Saturday. Getting anywhere with a heavy haul can be fun sometimes.. Glad to hear your looking forward to the next event.

    Load escorting

    Thanks @SuperMouse it will allow us to practice the art of radio coordination though.

    Load escorting

    The reason being I am trying to get some practice planned for this event that TMP have planned as it sounds like a wide load and escorts event this weekend (tomorrow) With convoys not everyone knows where they are going, however a team of 3 will. And if we're being judged on this event i want to do it with as much realism as possible by behaving like the scs escort vans in the special transport dlc without breaking rules and putting our cb chat into the open source every one can listen into our coordination

    Load escorting

    Hi guys, one for the Administration team and moderators At some stage I would like to organise within a VTC a heavy cargo with pilot cars, would it be within the rules for the pilot cars to function in the manner identical to how pilot cars work in the special cargo pack and in real life by positioning themselves in positions to make space for the load under escort to negotiate tight corners and prevent players from crashing into the load under escort. Similar to how it's done with organised convoys. The CD road will NOT BE USED for this. Can you help out with advice on this and clarify rules over this please

    I forgot to fill the fuel tank. Oh no.

    there was a pic where someone had RUN OUT of fuel and rolled to a fuel station, only to come to a stop NEXT to the icon rather than ON the icon!

    Driving On Grass + From Wrong Way (Ban or Kick)

    i had an occasion in Amsterdam / Rotterdam area, EU2, two fast moving blobs come up behind me, I'm in lane 1 in a DAF XF 510 with a load of concrete beams going uphill, to my right - the shoulder, to my left the overtaking lane, so I begin to move left as one comes level with my trailer to give extra room, however the other one had split and gone right, because he was going up the hard shoulder on an illegal overtake we actually collided. he may have reported me, but i dont think anything came of it, and because the way the player was driving it may have been seen as racing his partner as the one that did get past me was seriously hauling with a high power truck with a very light trailer. If someone is faster, I will move over to give them room, so long as they're going in a passing lane and NOT up the shoulder. ---- as for wrong way, one place where i see it often is at fuel stations on single carriageway roads where sometimes its SAFER to go the wrong way, particularly if you are in a LHD truck in the UK or a RHD truck in Europe, not everyone uses no2 camera for driving, or uses the Kinderspiegel that pop up with the F2 key, The person pulling out of a fuel station with a LHD truck in the UK, or a RHD truck in Europe has a BIG blind spot on their passenger side, and if they have not got a GPS up, they may or may not see someone coming up and think it clear to proceed. *crunch* I won't report people for doing this, as they may be doing that due to a number of reasons, as if you need fuel, sometimes thats the only one you can get to, or it may be simply because its safer as you can see traffic coming from both directions as it is coming down your driver's side. For those doing this, Don't just pull straight out, instead wait for it to be safe to proceed and get back into the correct lane quickly AND SAFELY. For those who are coming down the road and see someone doing this don't report them and clog the system with worthless reports, instead slow down / stop and let them out.

    Driving On Grass + From Wrong Way (Ban or Kick)

    driving on the grass is fine, its a perfectly acceptable place to pull over, and you have to drive on the grass for a short period to ensure your ENTIRE truck is off the road. sometimes you can get forced onto the grass to avoid an accident (i know, I have seen this myself on the CD when folk have been pushed by someone who forgets they have a trailer. Then you have nowhere to go.

    issue with the Scout interior

    There is a slight problem with the RIGHT HAND DRIVE version of the scout with the current version of ETS2MP compatible for 1.33. The problem is always replicable and only affects the UK spec cabins, this particulat example was purchased from a DAF dealership i think.

    8*4 chassis and 6x2 chassis Which one do you prefer?

    6x2 rear lift LWB This is because it gives stability when down and when i need to I can pop the tag and spin it around in less room than a 4x2

    Skoda - Our friend or enemy?

    I also have a scout, however i run with my limiter in in game, so on EU1 or EU2 / 3 i can only go 56mph, be I in a car or scania.

    Dirt roads?

    would be a good idea, however id imagine it would be horrendous on the dynamic feedback through wheels like the G29 and such. its bad enough through the quarry at 40km/h when the wheel makes the table shake due to the feedback being active.

    Caravans - owned???

    As we know, there is Trailer ownership, and some events such as convoys often feature Scoda's (no, thats NOT a miss-type) with the required trailer being the caravan and as we all know, FINDING one can be a pain, so even though I am not a total fan of the caravan and Scout / Skoda, can we have it as OWNABLE with custom features?

    Do you follow real traffic rules?

    Ideally I'd like eu1 to get busier @Miyuki @Top Bloke (AUS) Eu3 does seem to take a different crowd. I think that may be to the lack of scout cars. An idea that crossed my mind If you get banned for a reason such as ramming you get locked off the scout so you can't use it
