Hi, it's my first sort-of dual suggestion in-one and I'm not that sure if this whole suggestion should be placed on truckersMP or SCS forums. If you know better, kindly advise me. Also if I get any points wrong, please give me a heads up. Open to any criticism/improvisation and/or rep if it's something you disagree/agree with. I've also searched in truckersmp forums but I don't think I've come across this suggestion. If I've missed it, kindly point me in the right direction thank you. Suggestion Name 1 & 2: Level crossings / railway tracks to appear in GPS. Distinct train horns and audio warnings before-at-and-after level crossings. Suggestion Description 1: Like in-real-life GPS, drivers will to be able to view railway tracks and potential level crossings ahead on their GPS. Dotted path in GPS for the suggested idea. Any example images 1: As you can see the black and white dotted path crosses roads; indication that there might be a level crossing/grade crossing/railway crossing and drivers can keep their eyes open. Why should it be added? My reason would be an indication is a safer step to take with regards to accidents/crashes happening. Plus it makes the GPS a little more realistic. I'm not a tech guy so pardon me if my suggestions require a lot of coding or work needed to get implemented and I don't realise it. I just wanted to suggest it coming from what I've experienced so far, be it in single player or MP. Suggestion Description 2: I do believe there are no audio warnings (only flashing lights and proper signage posts before and at the crossings in both ATS and ETS2) and would like to suggest them to be implemented. Also with regards to the trains themselves, it would be more realistic to hear train horns as they approach and that the horns get louder and louder as they cross the intersection and are the closest to you or softer and softer as they go by and further away from you. That way also if there's a pile up due to the crossing in MP, drivers at the back actually know what's going on and not think it's a troll blocking the road or something that they have to bring up the free cam just to check and see what it is. Any example images 2: (ATS example) An ETS2 example: (UK Example) (EU Example) Why should it be added? My reason would be an indication is a safer step to take with regards to accidents/crashes/heavy jams at crossings happening. Also makes it more realistic, and it doesn't matter if you're on your radio/music player or communicating in a convoy.. everyone hears that same audio warning indication and they know that it's an indication to slow down and open their eyes and ears to a level crossing ahead. Especially from the EU video example, note that the audio warnings and flashing warnings can be heard far away @ 00:30. Barriers begin coming down @ about 00:34-35 and fully down @00:47-48 and train goes by @01:00 so that makes a full 30 seconds. Thanks for reading through and apologies in advance if I've posted wrongly or got any facts wrong. Feel free to correct whatever mistakes I've made. Only posting this after doing some digging-up for information. I hope I somewhat got my point across and that it was the right points across.
