Hey truckers!


We hope you have been enjoying celebrating #TMP8 with us, and had fun at the various events on offer over the weekend!
A while ago, you may have seen that we mentioned something about buses in TruckersMP in our launcher or on one of our social media channels. The addition of buses has been a much-requested feature in our community for the past few years.


Since last year, we have been exploring a partnership with the folks at DBus World to make that a possibility and bring a new way of playing on our servers. As you may already know from the Alternating Vehicles of the past months, our team can bring a bus model themselves, but we want to offer the community more than just a model to drive. Therefore, we are excited to announce that we will be supporting the DBus World client for use on the TruckersMP servers!


So… bus when? Well, we want to provide the bus as soon as possible and we are working hard with DBus World to make it happen. At the moment the final touches are being made and we expect to be able to welcome buses to TruckersMP shortly; from now on, we will provide regular updates on our social media channels.


Initially, we will only offer one bus, as we want to offer the best performance possible without issues caused by file size and animations. We need to evaluate these aspects thoroughly before we can confidently offer more buses, as we only want to provide a polished end product for you to enjoy.
Hopefully, we can count on your support for that!


We also want to offer an insight into our Patreon campaign. Most of you have probably noticed that activity on our servers had decreased in the second half of 2021 and this was also visible in the revenue that we gathered through Patreon. In the image below, you can see that the monthly income through Patreon has been consistently decreasing since May 2021. This income is important for us to ensure that our Game Developers can devote their precious time to TruckersMP, to ensure that regular updates take place and that new features are developed for the community. Later this year, we plan to introduce additional and new benefits for Patrons as we develop them.


Are you currently a Patron or have you been a Patron before? We would love to hear your views and opinions on our current campaign so we can make it even better!
It would be great if you could help us by participating in this short survey: https://truckersmp.com/survey/15

Other Plans

Our lead Developer, mwl4, is currently working to improve our current codebase. This is a crucial task in order to fulfill one of our long term ambitions: to introduce AI traffic on TruckersMP servers. We are hoping to update you on AI traffic in TruckersMP later this year but we will have to see what the coming months will bring. You can learn more in this blog post.


You can also expect to see more features added to the Job Tracker and Job Dispatcher, as well as further improvements to the in-game user interface and the achievement system. We will also be looking into bringing in-game profiles, which you can fully customize to represent who you are, what you prefer doing on our servers, and show off things you unlocked.


But that's all for now! We are looking forward to the future and to see what it brings. As always, thank you to everybody who continues to support TruckersMP, and allows us to continue creating this one of a kind modification!
We are looking forward to another year full of new content!

Maybe there will be something you want, which has to be developed step by step.

I would continue to pay 5-10 dollars.

But my payment does not pass.

They turned off the payment to us. ?

Not really excited regarding the bus, but having AI traffic is going to be amazing (IF it works properly). The drop in Patreon subscribers is pretty significant, so I hope those figures improve in the future. If they don't improve, there are going to be some major development difficulties down the road, since Patreon income is very important for TMP.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I have no interest in the addition of buses to the game.


If you want to drive a bus then there are bus driving simulators available. This game is about driving trucks and I would prefer to see TMP focus on improving that aspect of the game.


In particular I would like to see any of the following added:

- Rigid lorries added as a new class which can be purchased/configured.

- Multi-drop routes; a delivery from point A > B but with drop-offs/pickups along the way.

- More routes added, especially in the likes of Italy and France; there is loads of room here for additional roads to be opened.

- Routes that have construction on them to be either updated to show progress or completed.

- AI traffic added; I realise this is not a simple matter.

- Additional load types added, especially for flat bed trailers.


Just my 2 cents.
