* Note: If you have got the "user" role, you also will have acces to a specific channel called "#roles", in which you can select all the roles you want, such as: "Dutch" and "VTC". By selecting the flag of your country, you will get acces to the 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, on the website of TMP: https://truckersmp.com/support/tickets,

 * 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/feedback. Information about the use can be found here: https://truckersmp.com/knowledge-base/article/25

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: Make sure if you want to apply for a VTC that: You are logged in + that you have all the requirements of the VTC + that the recruitment is open.



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

* Note: Make sure to have disabled the speed limiter of your truck, if you want to drive +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.

@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.
