Tips to get most traction/grip on steep unsurfaced climbs
Foobrother posted a topic in ArchiveHi all, I quite like challenging myself and regularly try to climb steep roads on the Promods Kirkenes and Iceland hills. I try to have the biggest ratio between engine power vs cargo weight (smallest engine with the heaviest cargo possible). Before people complain: NO I'm not taking the Locomotive all the time and usually take smaller cargos ~30T-45T and almost never take the Scania 730 or Volvo 750. I'm usually more with other brands with ~500bhp engines. But imagine you're stopped, stuck in traffic (can't reverse), and need to climb. In that scenario I would says that you have 3 possibilities: You have enough power and grip and you climb. Perfect! You seem to have enough power but don't have any grip. Your wheels are turning but you don't move. No grip. And if you try shifting to the next gear up you don't have enough power and it stalls. Your wheels are not even moving, even in 1st gear, and you basically don't have enough power: game over! My question is mainly about number 2. Any tips to get more traction/grip in that scenario? What works best for you? I have tried several things but without much success. I guess this also greatly depends on your physics settings? Mine are very realistic and I play with a keyboard (full throttle or off the pedal only ?) However if you want to share your tips for traction/grip in general please feel free as I'm sure it will benefit others! Thanks,
CONCURRIED AREAS & LAG: 10 LIFE TIPSHELLO! If you're new and you're just joining this family, you'll realize that there will be areas where no one will pass, while others will be full of players and that brings problems of it, then you must keep in mind some useful tips to face these areas and not die in the attempt... or worse, just over that tell you below you will have general tips and some for specific areas of the game such as C-D and nearby cities. 1. If you feel lonely when you first enter and think that no one plays or that something happens with the internet, maybe it's where you are, most of them play in the area that is enclosed with the rectangle and its respective nearby areas; although you can still find players around the map, but there's the vast majority. 2 . In areas with +25 players there are existing TMP rules that you should know and remember how they are not to overtake or park; always respects others and they will respect you. TMP rules 3 . If you have a mid-range or low-end computer, it is best to avoid areas with +30 players as you can present LAG and this will lead to accidents range and can create more traffic or some dangerous situation, it also serves to adjust the graphics or decrease the components of the game [lights-beacons] 4. If you get to areas where you know they may be collapsed like the Calais junction, the Duisburg exit or these same cities, it's best to slow down and try to let it charge slowly but safe, because if you go fast you can get into a strong LAG and it can affect the player coming behind, or it's late in loading players in front of you and when it happens you won't be able to brake and you'll be stamped on them. 5. If you see that you are having LAG, it is best to get on the side and thus avoid accidents or any BUGS because of the impact you could receive [so you avoid damage to your cargo-truck-trailer] and cooperate to not generate traffic. 6. In almost that someone has lag, try to keep a prudent distance [1 1/2 truck or 2-3 scouts ] and thus reduce the risk of impact and not fly out or BUG. 7. Remember that you may not have problems in areas with lots of players, but others do, help them by turning off your beacons and don't abuse your high lights. 8. In crowded areas do not make irresponsible races or maneuvers, you can be reported and subsequently banned. If you don't know the rules, I'll leave them here. ->TMP general rules 9. If for X reason you are affected by an irresponsible player, DO NOT ANSWER YOU CAN GENERATE MORE PROBLEMS!, just take out your pinfo and report it to the GMs you can help maintain order in crowded areas by reporting to those who endanger others, and so you contribute your granite to making this place better. 10. for the route Calais-Duisburg it is advisable not to carry heavy, long or oversized loads; because you can generate traffic and thereby increase the players in that area and that increases data traffic and end up generating LAGS in some players and being able to cause danger or other complicated situations. Always remember to follow the RULES of the MP and try to keep order on routes and servers, you may not be able to avoid laG or crowded areas, but following these tips I can tell you that the risks of accidents-problems-or other situations can be diminished, in addition to always respecting others and they will respect you as well as follow possible directions from the TMP team, I just hope I have helped you have a good driving and play.....HAPPY TRUCKING
[REJECTED] 5 Tips to Avoid Accidents
Mr.Finn posted a topic in Guide ArchiveHello, so I decided to make this because I personally notice a lot of accidents where people could just avoid them. I hope these tips help other drivers. Tips: 1. Keep distance (50 meters is good) - keeping distance is one of the most important things you could do to avoid accidents, the truck in front of you might just lag or brake when you won't be expecting. 2. Use hazard lights to warn drivers behind you - Hazard lights should be used to warn drivers behind you when there is an accident, someone in front of you starts braking unexpectedly or if you are entering traffic. 3. Always check mirrors when braking or turning - You need to know if someone is behind you when braking or turning so you don't ram them. 4. Check the map to see if no one is coming before overtaking - You shouldn't overtake if someone is coming in the opposite way you are driving. 5. Use indicators to turn - You don't wanna turn unexpectedly for the truck behind you. That can cause an accident because probably the driver behind won't have much time to react and brake in time.
