  1. GUIDE ON USING MULTIPLE TRAILERS IN ANY CITY OR COUNTRY OF ETS 2: So I was recently taught a trick in order to get double trailers in every area of the ETS 2 map. So, as you currently know the area limitation has been lifted but the default game won't let you change the area you want your trailer. This is why I have created this guide to help beginners and advanced players test their luck in other areas of the map not just Finland. It's fairly simple but you need to decrypt your game.sii folder and in order to do this you need a file such as the one attached https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/642182917816057867/642208434334203904/SII_Decrypt.exe what will this do? This will simply decrypt your save game, ensure you go to the right area in order to do this successfully. So to do this, you need to do the following: Step 1, - You need to use one of your trailers in single player mode of ETS 2 (Not in TruckersMP) Step 2, - Then you need to go and save your game as something you'll remember I used 'DOUBLE 2' Step 3, when you have saved your game as a familiar name, you'll need to locate this profile save, don't worry about staying in your single player game for now, this is fine. Step 4, go to this folder: profiles In order to get here do the following steps: (PC - Documents - Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Profiles) - Once at this point, you'll notice a big number which is a file. This is where all of your ingame profiles are stored. In order to access this, go ahead and click on the folder so it should look like this when opened: http://prntscr.com/puesv8 - Once opened, you'll see a folder in there called 'save' go ahead and click on this, it'll bring you to your actual profiles. Once at your profiles you'll see in some cases a lot of auto saves, maybe none or a few, this makes your life even easier if you don't have many if you do, no problem just find the save you made ingame. So for me, it was: http://prntscr.com/puetj5 you can check this via the Date Modified function. Great! You're doing really well, now once you get to here; http://prntscr.com/puehay go ahead and drag the folder 'SII_Decrypt from the link sent above into the game folder. What will this do? It'll simply enable you to actually understand the contents inside this file. So it should look like a SII notepad file or you'll be able to read the contents. Now follow the next steps: Step 1, Go to 'Edit - Find and search "trailer_defs" when you get here it'll look like this: http://prntscr.com/puew0f - Once here, copy everything in the BLUE Highlight shown like so: http://prntscr.com/puewst and go ahead and search it. Step 2, Now, you'll see this part of the document: http://prntscr.com/puexcs - Once here, you're doing very well and on task - - Next! You'll need to change the following things in order to make the game think it's a Single trailer when in theory it's a double, B double or HCT. - Why is this? It's to ensure you can drive your trailer anywhere in TMP. Step 3, So you'll change the value here under 'chain_type:' to single as I've done here: http://prntscr.com/pueyb0 (Keep in mind if it's already single, scroll down until you find one with 'B double', Double or HCT' - Great! Once you've done that you'll notice some text under 'country_validity between these lines: it'll have different countries names: http://prntscr.com/puez28 - Delete all of it until you're left with everything you can see on my document. Now - the eagle eyed ones out there would of noticed my country validity says '0' - You'll need to change it's current value to 0 this enables you to use it in any countries. Step 4, Find "source_name:" and delete the text including the quotes as seen here: http://prntscr.com/puezoh and replace it with 'NULL' as seen here: http://prntscr.com/puf087 - This will enable the game to work out it's a single trailer. Now, once you've done this all you need to do is the following. Click File - Save and save the document. Step 5, Load into Single player game (unless it's still open on single player) and go ahead and click on 'LOAD' and load in your saved profile. Go to trailer manager and highlight your mouse over one of the trailers that shows as a HCT, B-Double or double - You'll see it says 'Single' Step 6 - Go ahead and SAVE the new profile and go into TMP, load up the profile and it'll let you transfer that trailer to any garage you own in the game - I hope this helps. React as you feel appropriate feel free to private message questions and I'll address them. -ADDED EXTRA: the allowed trailer types by TMP: Keep on TRUCKING! - Credit to my friend.
  2. Greetings! I have noticed many of the players in TMP are not familiar with right of ways when it comes to driving. Here is a little guide that should help clear up this issue . WHAT IS A RIGHT OF WAY? A right of way is who goes first at an intersection. WHERE DO WE FIND RIGHT OF WAYS? Right of ways are at intersections, parking lots, merging lanes and many other places. ---AT AN INTERSECTION--- 4 WAY STOP: At a 4 way stop vehicles from all directions MUST come to a full stop. When approaching these intersections make sure to notice the order vehicles from other directions arrive at the intersection. A saying to help you remember the rules of a 4 way intersection is "First come first serve". If 4 vehicles are all coming to an intersection all from different directions, the vehicle to first make there full stop will be the one to go first thru the intersection. The order you arrive at the intersection is the order you go thru the intersection. If you and another driver at the intersection are going opposite ways meaning you will go right by each other, you can both cross the intersection at the same time. Hence why it is important to always signal at these intersections. WHAT IS A 4 WAY STOP? A 4 way stop is an intersection where all 4 directions have a stop sign at the intersection. All drivers must come to a full stop here. T-INTERSECTIONS (3 WAY INTERSECTIONS): At 3 way intersections 2 directions will have the right of way. 1 direction will have a stop sign or a yield sign. If you are coming from the Stop/Yield direction make sure to make room for other vehicles coming from other directions. If you are turning left at a 3 way intersection and you are coming from a direction with right of way, people coming from the opposite direction have priority meaning you must wait till you are safe to make your left turn. However it can still be nice to let someone go first by flashing your headlights even if they do not have the right of way. TRANSPORT MAKING WIDE TURN: Semi trucks often need to park in 2 lanes when arriving at intersections if they are turning right. If you do notice this, you should give room for it to make his/her turn. POLICE BEHIND WITH SIRENS ON (GAME MODERATOR): Like in real life, when a police car with lights and sirens comes behind you, you are to get OUT of the way by pulling over, pulling into a parking lot or anything to get out of the way. Here, police have the right of way. If you get to an intersection and you have a green light but a police is coming from another way with sirens and lights, the police can run the red light. You must wait for them to go thru the intersection. On the motorway do not stop if there is a police behind you unless he is trying to pull you over. On the motorway simply clear a lane and keep driving. If the police is staying behind you and not passing you, then pull over. Hope this clears up a few things! Stay safe out there!

  3. So You want to take a trip down the CD Road? Before You hit the CD Road: Quick Save! Find a suitable spot to stop... such as a repair station, gas station, or the yard that you pick up your trailer from and quick save there. That way if you do get Rammed, Trolled, etc on the CD road... you have a safe spot to roll the game back to. The game does autosave but it often does it while on the road. If you restore your game to an autosave then it's very likely you'll be in the middle of the road. I'm aware that there is ghost mode, but (as far as I know) there isn't a way to tell if someone is currently in ghost mode. Fill it up! Get your truck fueled before you hit the CD Road, this keeps you from stopping at the gas/petrol stations on the road and have to deal with all that traffic in those small stations... For the traffic traveling west on the CD Road, there isn't a gas station on your side of the road until just before Calais. For the eastbound traffic, there isn't a gas station until after you pass into Germany (could be wrong but it's somewhere around there). Can Your Computer Handle it?! Remember where you're going.... the CD road is known for being an area of high traffic, and not everyone has a computer that can handle it... so simply ask yourself... "Can my computer handle it?" If you don't think so, find an alternate route. A way to find this out would be to teleport to a city that has a moderate amount of traffic (such as Dortmund). If your framerate is below 45 FPS with only 20-30 people nearby, don't get onto the CD Road. If you do take the CD road and your computer is struggling (you're only getting 15 FPS), you'll appear extremely laggy to everyone else, which can cause serious problems. While On the CD Road: Remain Alert! Those trolls can come out of nowhere, after many trips down the CD road I've learned that the hard way... Remember the Inappropriate Overtaking Rule! Game Moderators have said that in areas of high traffic (anywhere where there are 20 or more people on your tab menu), overtaking is forbidden. However, on the CD Road, it is forbidden to overtake... period. You probably saw those broadcasts reminding everyone that overtaking is forbidden on the CD Road. That's simply because of the high traffic volume during peak times. People do overtake when they really shouldn't (they may think they're more important), but you should try to help them get back on the right side of the road. If there's a truck coming and you see they speed up, you slow down. If they slow down, you speed up, the goal is to get them back on the right side of the road as quickly as possible. If they hit you while trying to move back onto the right side of the road, then that's either considered Ramming or Dangerous Driving depending on how much damage you take. Never turn left into a gas station! Chances are you'll be blocking opposing traffic with your trailer. Also, gas station traffic moves with the closest lane, so in order to go in properly, you're basically making a U-turn to go in, and then a U-turn to go out. I cannot count the number of times I got blocked from someone turning left into a gas station right in front of me forcing me to stop... Someone is laggy in front of me! Keep your distance (150m or more) and be prepared to stop. Make sure you're recording! There's always a chance you'll run into someone breaking the rules on the CD road, have your camera running. Now, I've seen people say things like "2018 rec" or "1206 ban". There really isn't a point to saying that. You don't need to tell them that you're going to report them, that just causes drama in the chat, in my opinion. They'll get what's coming to them... However, there are some offenses that are only kickable, and others are bannable. Carefully review the footage and ask yourself the question before you report someone... "If I was a Game Moderator, would I ban this person?" Last but not least... Drive Safe!
  4. Hi there, I'm still new to the game, new to the multiplayer mod and kinda new to any modding in general for that matter. I've had read through this forum and other searches but still don't quite understand. The main question I have on my mind is: What exactly is an in game company for multiplayer and what purpose do they serve? From the information I've gathered it sounds like it's a form of serious roleplay that adds a lot more work through the use of third party sites and mods. Also some seem to add some form of benefit like I noticed unique skins being a common thing, are all benefits purely cosmetic? I've never really been much of a roleplayer and interaction is definitely not my forte but I'm curious about this sort of thing after seeing a groups convoy in game which actually looked kinda impressive and fun. Am I also correct in guessing that the wording above a players truck goes something along the lines of: Country Flag, Company or Group name, Their Username and then Their unique numerical ID to the server? Cheers for your time.
  5. Question Name : How to use CB radio? Question Description : Taking part in many convoys i heard about CB radio, i don't know how to use it and configuration.
