  2. Last week Myself and Pascal from Truckers.FM were lucky enough to be invited the beautiful city of Prague visit SCS Software! (and of course, see the sights and eat some fantastic food!) So, your probably wondering. What is the reason for this trip? Well to be honest, we've always wanted to visit the Czech Republic, especially Prague. It's been on my list for a while and I'm so glad to have the opportunity to visit it. It's a beautiful city with a rich history which is prevalent to see when you walk around. From the old trams to the beautiful cathedrals, Prague is a city I'd happily get lost in, with surprises around every corner! If you love food, and drinking then your in luck! Prague is pretty well known for (in some areas) having beer that is cheaper than water, and having some very tasty dishes. Our long-time friend RootKiller was able treat us to our very first Czech Dish! I personally had Beef Goulash and Bread Dumplings (Also known as Hovězí Guláš) It was incredibly tasty, and those bread dumplings we're just fantastic. But enough words, let my picture below do the talking! NOM. To jídlo bylo vynikající! Enough about your stomach! What did you do at SCS Software's Offices!? We we're incredibly privileged to be invited to the home of SCS Software. Before we even get into detail on how it was visiting the offices, we like to extend a HUGE thank you to RootKiller, Nemiro and Pavel for being so kind to allow us to visit and take us around and introduce us to everyone and just put up with a couple of fan boys basically! But seriously, Děkuji ! I may or may not of intentionally blurred some PC screens. Or maybe they actually are working on a whirlwind DLC. You'll never know. Nemiro was kind enough to take meet us and take his own time out to take us around the offices, and first thing is WOW. If you haven't already, vote for SCS Softwares offices for the best one of 2018 (http://blog.scssoft.com/2018/01/meeting-room-of-year-competition.html) because they really are fantastic. Each area or section (as seen above) is dedicated to a project/game or task, with a Whiteboard/Sliding TV and Meeting area in front which are used for team meetings and briefings, and for drawing 8/8 memes on them (which we totally loved, keep on drawing!) There are also lots of little meeting rooms, and offices which can be used for individual work or one on one meetings. They have also have a boss break room. Fatboy Pillows, Coffee, Tea and a great view. Just awesome. One thing we noticed when being taken around the offices was that each member of the team was working hard. From what we saw, every member was dedicated to their task that day, it was fantastic to see such a great team spirit and everyone just cracking on with what they were working on. It really gave myself a sense of how much SCS Software care for their community, their games and how much they really are listening to us. Did you do anything else in the offices? Absolutely! Besides our fantastic tour, in which we met a lot of fantastic people (including George.. you know George! He owns George's Radio in the Scania R/S Truck!) We got to have a try at their Motion Simulator which is used for testing as well as just having fun on. They were the same ones used in the Truck Racing Tour with SCS as featured on the blog. It was a lot of fun, driving on it makes you aware of how bad of a driver you maybe, especially when you crash. Which I did not.. *cough* SCS as a team also came up with an idea prior to our visit to create something special for us at Truckers.FM for our contribution to the community experience for truckers around the world. Your reading it here first, and soon you'll be hearing it! That's right, we were lucky enough to jump into the in-house studio (used to process truck sounds and also everyone favorite In-Game Menu Music!) to create some special Jingles for Truckers.FM which you'll be hearing very soon EXCLUSIVELY on Truckers.FM As you can see, those involved (including Pavel Šebor the CEO!) had a ton of fun. Heck, some even bought their own instruments to play for the recording session From didgeridoos to ukulele's we made some pretty fun Jingles for listeners to enjoy while trucking. Again, we were massively grateful for this experience and time we had to chat and bond with the team. It really will be something we won't forget. There is honestly so much more I could write about our experience, but I think i'd have to release it as a book if that came to be. In short, we are super thankful for the friends we met and made in Prague, our time there and the relationships we got to build. It made me smile ear to ear knowing that a lot of the good folk there knew who we were and what we did, and loved what we do. They work with passion, dedication and some good food dishes from a downstairs cafeteria. If you have any questions about our trip, I'm happy to answer them! I hope you enjoyed this small report on our trip, and well. Thank you to you all for supporting TruckersFM to get to this point! Your all fantastic, Happy Days! Much Love London! TL:DR - Food, Drink, SCS Offices, Recording, Driving, Fun.
  3. Hello Truckers, Suggestion Name: We have to relax your service exit. Suggestion Description: As you know, there are a lot of accidents in places with heavy traffic. Actually, there is no need to be a rule or punishment to get ahead of it, everything starts in the gamer, if we are go properly and respectfully, the accident happens very little. Any example images: Why should it be added?: Admin's can not reach every region at any moment, i suggest that; Everyone bumps into each other because they want to leave immediately. So the player in the service area who is involved in the accident, automatically you are thrown from the game. Thank you. Best regards
  4. General conduct on German Streets

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen, Since Germany is located in Middle Europe, it is the middle of the map. A lot truckers have to cross Germany to reach their destination. I want to quickly provide a few common things, not every trucker knows, because Germany has one of the most developed street systems worldwide, even without having speedlimits on some points (no don't hope, for trucks there is always a speed limit ) So first of all, I want to quickly start with the sign everyone sees, when he enters Germany. <- shows speed limits for cars outside, inside villages and on German "Autobahn" Important for us is, that this is car only. For trucks it is 50 inside cities, and outside, it depends on the weight of the truck. If it is between 3,5 and 7,5t, you are allowed to drive 80 on streets. On motorway, everyone, no matter what weight he has is only allowed to drive 80km/h. If he is allowed to drive 100 (needs 100 sign, signed by TÜV (German Law)) he can drive 100 but on motorways only! By the way, the blue sign with the 130 is not a speed limit, it is a speed you should drive. If you make mistakes or having accidents and you can't proof that this would also happen when you drive less than 130, then it is automatically your fault! Follow pictures are also important for you! - shows the speed limit, applies to every vehicle on the road, if not marked under it. - this sign can be under a speed limit, so this speed limit is now applying to trucks only! - general prohibition of over taking other vehicles. Permanent lines between both sides are also showing this kind of prohibition. - If you see this, you can cross the intersection. But keep in mind chapter #2 - A stop sign. A full stop is required to make sure, noone is coming from left or right. - You can slowly drive forward and make sure noones coming at the same time. If someone comes, a stop is required! You are still the second in queue! - A railway crosses the street, 3 stripe sign is 240 in front of the railway, the two stripe on 160m, the one stripe 80m! Chapter #2 with translation pyramide showing the chain of command in a street intersection! Blue is police, orange is traffic light, red is Sign and green is right before left Police - The police is the highest in chain of command. If police stands on traffic intersection and is ruling traffic, everyone has to listen to police, no matter what colour the traffic lights are showing. He can overrule the traffic light and every other rule! Traffic light - If there is no police officer, and the traffic lights are running, they are automatically the highest you have to listen to. If they show red, you have to stop. If they show green, you are allowed to drive. Sign - Sometimes, traffic lights are not working i.E. they are under construction, damaged or it is just night and the city wants to save energy, so they put it on orange. It will light just orange. You will be confronted with this in ETS since traffic lights are shutting down in the night. Now the signs are the highest. Watch chapter #1 for more information about signs. Right before left - If there is nothing enabled, no sign and no police, there will be right before left. It is an easy rule but mistakes can still be done. You won't be confronted since you cant pass lower populated city areas or small villages. They often have it on their streets. In this case, the Blue would be allowed to drive, since there is noone on the right side of him. Red has to let Blue pass first, because Blue is right next on the right side of Red. If Blue passed, Red is allowed to pass the intersection because since Blue passed, there is noone on the right side anymore. If red passed, green can also pass, because red is gone, so the right side is free for green. It sounds confusing but its pretty easy to learn! Chapter #3 Driving on the street and watching other traffic Overtaking on the rightest lane is forbidden except inside cities. Thats why you can't freely choose your lanes like you can do it inside cities. Outside of them, there is a law, which forces you to drive on the right side of the road to give others the possibility, overtaking you legally and safely. Always drive on the right lane, until you actually enter a city or overtaking someone. In the following pictures, you can see exceptions, when it is allowed, driving on other sides! - if someone enters the Autobahn, make sure you give him the space to enter it. Look in your mirror and go on the left lane to give him a legal possibility to enter the lane! - you entered a city. Left sign is letting you know, you entered and two right signs are letting you know, you left a city! - You overtake someone and you have to use the left lane! In case of a traffic jam, you should drive carefully. If you are on multiple lane roads, always form a way for emergency vehicles. To make it easy, the lane on the left side has to give space by driving close to the edge of the left side. All the other lanes have to drive right so between the first lane from left and the second from left is a space for emergency vehicles! Now other common things, you should watch... Its showing a circle. Do not rush into it. Watch for other traffic. You can join it without having indicator enabled but if you leave indicate your direction! - safe explaining, you enter a tunnel but switch on your lights! - shows, that all vehicles are forbidden. If there is a car inside, all vehicles as big as and bigger as a car are forbidden. If a truck the same thing with just truck! Now a general information. Do not use your bright lights when there is other traffic. In ETS2 your not blinding someone, but in real life, you are. So turn the bright lights off and just use the normal ones! And watch these signs, they are the most important for you! and btw dont forget the traffic lights! German Autobahn facts: - over 13000 kilometers long - connecting west, east, north and south (N, E, S, W) - Having an A for Autobahn and a count i.E. A420 (dont know if this excists) - Minimal speed limit is 60, if there is fog which disables visibility and you enable fog lights, you can only drive 50 so this is the only exception! Blue sign with two lanes and a bridge

  17. Any Muslim Truckers

    I was wondering if there are any Muslim truckers that live in UK and are available to do a delivery with me in either game as i can only find people from other countries which may not speak English. if so then could you add me.
  18. Hello fellow truckers! First to clear on thing up, this will NOT be a post about that SCS Software is bad or anything like that. I think they're really good and still like their games. Now to get to the point, I feel like they sometimes prioritise the wrong things in their games. This is all from my point of view from a real truck driver. Euro Truck Simulator 2 Now for example take a look at the most recent DLC for ETS 2 called "Mighty Griffin" which is basically a bling bling DLC for the Scania with loads of chrome. It's fun that they actually do such DLC's it really is but I think theres way too much chrome in this DLC and too little of other cool things to put on. And I also consider it wrong of SCS Software to make such a DLC to a truck which isn't even finished at all, this is a model that hasn't been updated since the dawn of the game itself basically. If you take a look at the speedometers you'll see how full of edges they are and compare them to another newer truck like the Mercedes Actros you'll see a big difference, so I think they rather should remake the old dashboards on the really old trucks to fit todays expectations and since we alreay have seen that they're capable of doing a lot better today. One thing that also bugs the s**t out of me about the Scania trucks is that horrendous indicator sound, I don't know where they got that from but certainly not from a Scania and the V8 sound is completely off and so is the engine sounds for the smaller Scania engines. I would go as far as saying that not a single sound from the Scania is correct at the moment. I don't know why they haven't fixed this, they have fixed the indicators on the new Volvo FH so why not the Scania as well. I think it's kinda wrong that they have permission to use the Scania brand on their trucks when they aren't made correctly and that this is something they should fix ASAP. From what I've heard the Volvo trucks only have the right indicator sound but the engine sound is off on them too. One thing that also bugs me is the lack of sideskirts on everything but 4x2 trucks, the new Actros and DAF XF support sideskirts on all models however the rest doesn't I think this should be fixed and added to all other brands. And yes Scania and Volvo at least have sideskirts for all of their models. Below is proof from my Scania and as you can see it's not a 4x2. In my point of view all the above should be fixed before even thinking about other DLC's such as "Viva La France" and so on, when the "base" game has reached a good quility I think it's wise to start thinking about DLC's and not a minute before that. I can't speak out about the other brand since I've only driven Scania and Volvo. I think they should update all truck models to meet a higher graphic quality/standard if you get what I mean and I also think they should update the trucks so all the sounds corresponds with the models or they shouldn't be allowed to use the brands itself, the sound and looks of trucks I feel is quite important. American Truck Simulator American Truck Simulator is a truly beautiful game with beautiful and cool scenery across the map, beautiful cities and everything. But that's where this "fairytale" ends, you got access to 2 different truck brands in the game, Peterbilt and Kenworth and a total of 3 different trucks and a very small amount of customization for those trucks. We all know that SCS Software is hard at work signing new brands and trucks, however it's been 5 months now. 5 months since the release and 5 months with only 2 brands. I'm not saying that they're too slow or anything like that but a progress update regardning new trucks every now and then would be appreciated. I think it's a bit of a shame that we got this beautiful game but only 3 trucks for almost half a year now and I would say that the fanbase of ATS is dropping for every month at moment and some major changes need to happen pretty soon to the game. SCS Software I think it's wonderful what SCS Software do and that they create these fun Simulator games for us to have so much fun with, however I think they're pretty bad at communication. We usually say that communication is A and O to everything, I mean sure they have their blog and Facebook page but theres still so many unaswered questions everywhere and usually when they write something it's about something completely different than what you were hoping for. Like what happened to rigid trucks, the coaches and so on? Last I heard the rigid was still going to be implemented into the game, and first they spoke about a "Euro Coach Simulator" however later changed their mind and said that the coaches were going to be implemented into ETS 2. From what I've seen they have made it a bit ready for that by adding bus stations and stops into the maps but what's next? I haven't heard anything about the above in a really long time now. How about finishing all of the above before starting on new DLC's, you usually finish one project before starting 10 new. And I would also be glad if we got some progress update regarding new brands for ATS and inform your loyal customers whats going on. END So what do you think, Am I completely out of my mind or do you agree with me completely or a bit or what? Please leave some feedback of what you think below!

  21. Suggestion Name: Pay a fine for hitting someone else's truck Suggestion Detail: When you are hit by another trucker, the game automatically deducts the amount of euros of damage from that players account. If the player has done a lot of damage (70% or more) this would result in a BAN or KICK. Any Example Images?: Yes , sorry for my poor paint skills :/ Why should it be added?: You have no idea how annoying it is when a player rams into the side of your truck; it gets really damaged and destroyed. Your trailer is wrecked, your truck is wrecked. And at the end the player just drives away, like it never happened. The moderators cannot do anything as they didn't see it. It does get really devastating and when you haven't got enough money, your screwed. With this method in place, this should reduce the amount of "rammers" who do this for fun, I know people may mention 'Yes but they can just use Cheat Engine and get the money back' However, if a player rams into you and your truck is pretty much wrecked, that player will get banned for life; until further notice. Furthermore, if the player has given you slight damage ; i.e. 10% or less. You have a choice if that player should give you the money for not (this works great if your friend accidentally hits you, you can call it off) Overall, this would be a nice addition to ETS2 multi player as this brings back a feature from single player. Hopefully this can get implemented into the game. Thanks
