Hello everyone, today I would like to share this little summary with you. I have made this mainly for new ETS2MP drivers, I hope this will be useful.  ?


What do you have to know as a (beginning) ETS2MP user? 


1.  You need to know and understand the TruckersMP official rules, which are listed here: https://truckersmp.com/rules


2.  You need to know and you will have to follow, the TruckersMP discord rules, these can be found in the official discord server, in the channel: "#rules" or at the following website: https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/442


3.  If you would like to have the "user" role in the official discord server then you can follow the steps below:


3.1  Create an account on the TruckersMP website: https://truckersmp.com/index.php/auth/register

3.2  Head over to the channel: "#connect-truckersmp" in the discord server and complete the steps


* Note: If you have got the "user" role, you also will have access to a specific channel called "#roles", in which you can select all the roles you want, such as: "Dutch" and "VTC". By selecting a flag of a country, you will gain access to that specific (chosen) language channel.


4.  If you are having any troubles/problems, with TruckersMP related topics, you have four (4) options to ask for help, which you can find below:


4.1  You can head over to the support channel in the official discord server of TruckersMP, keep in mind that in this channel exclusively English can be spoken.

4.2  Another option is to create a support ticket, via the TruckersMP website: https://truckersmp.com/support/tickets,

       For more information about the use of the support system, please have a look at the following  website: https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/21 

4.3  If you can not express yourself in English, then you can send a DM (=direct message) in your native language to @ModMail (discord bot).

4.4  A fourth option is to ask for help in the help sections on the forum: https://forum.truckersmp.com/


5.  If you see someone, who's violating the rules in a server , you have two (2) options to report it:


5.1  In-game via the tab menu: https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/791

5.2  Via the report system on the TruckersMP website: https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/8


 * Note: A staff member cannot be reported via the report system, to report a staff member you will have to create a feedback ticket, here: https://truckersmp.com/feedbackInformation about the use can be found here: https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/25


6.  If you would like to have more information about a VTC, have a look below:


6.1  What is a VTC? + How to apply? --> https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/328

6.2  How to create a VTC? --> https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/327


* Note: Being in the same VTC with anyone else, doesn't mean that you will have the same cargoes, deliveries, destinations, trucks or money.

* Note: If you want to apply for a VTC, make sure that:
1. You are logged in;
2. You meet all the requirements of that specific VTC;

3. The recruitment is open.

7.  In the simulations, you can find two (2) different speed limits:


7.1  If you are doing an external contract (World of trucks related) --> The speed of your truck is limited to 90 km/h

7.2  If you are doing a freight market / cargo market / quick job contract --> The speed of your truck is limited to 110km/h


* Note: Make sure that you have disabled the speed limiter of your truck, if you wish to drive faster than 90 km/h in a contract (except the external ones).


8.  How to disable the speed limiter? 


8.1  You will have to unbox the "truck speed limiter" in your settings ( Settings > Gameplay > Truck speed limiter )

8.2  You will have to unbox the "speed limiter" in the TAB settings ( TAB > Sprocket > speed limiter )



* Note: If the menu doesn't pop up when you press TAB, then first press F11 and try it again.


9. How to change your player/in-game tag or tag color? 


9.1  You can change your tag by doing: TAB > Right Mouse Click > Sprocket > Player tag


10.  In the following topic, you can find more information about the in-game "commands & keys": https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/85


11.  The road signs, you can  find the most common signs and the meaning of each sign in the following video:

@SandraMarion I can't speak for every European countries, but in Spain all roundabouts have a yield sign for the drivers who are going to enter it, meaning that drivers who are already in the roundabout have the priority. So yes, when you approach a roundabout, you have to check if there are vehicles inside and give them way, stopping if necessary until it's clear to go.

1. Solid line means that you're not allowed to cross it, while the "No overtaking" sign only doesn't allow you to overtake anyone (it doesn't forbid you from driving on the opposite side of the road) till the next intersection or a sign that removes this limitation. Solid line and the "No overtaking" sign don't always work together. Sometimes, solid lines change to broken lines which means that you can turn through (or using) it there, but you're still not allowed to overtake.




2. It's important to know (for ETS developers as well, since some of their map-makers don't understand it) that the "No entry" sign doesn't allow you to drive on the road that is on the left side from this sign, and it doesn't work on other roads.





3. "No Parking" and "No stopping" signs work only on the side of the road where they are placed.





Also there is a lot of important information missing, but i'm too lazy to make a guide myself. But excessive simplification leads to stupid mistakes.
