Hello TruckersMP,   Today I am making a tutorial on how to use the new CB radio.   It is very simple however people who are new to using it or new to the mod may not know how to us

Maybe you want to add something about the mute function ? you mute someone in the last second in your video. Even if it's bugged now, i imagine it will eventually work.

i want to add as this seems to be an universal guide, that cb channels differ from ats to ets2 if you want to keep it realistic.   Europe has one cb channel per language.. ex.: channel 5 ita

I haven't heard that it is, but is it possible to turn radio volume up/down with keyboard, is this something that may happen in the future, or am I SOL? I prefer to leave my radio on but sometimes you run into a group of people that are to loud or they speak a different language, and it'd be nice to just hit a key, turn the volume down, vs. pull over, hit tab, and then either mouse over to shit CB of or turn volume down.

Hello guys,

 

From what I just read, all I need to do to talk on my CB to other truckers is to have my CB tuned to a particular channel, e.g. 19, press the 'V' key, and start talking.  Well... that doesn't work, and I think a part of the problem, if not the entire problem, is that ATS, by default, links the 'V' key to the DIFFERENTIAL LOCK .  Has anyone noticed this before?  

 

So... if I un-assign the V key, it should work; right?  Nope... nada.  I can hear others talking, and well, but nothing from my mic is going out when pressing 'V'.  Could there be a different key I need to be pressing?

 

Thanks In Advance!!

Since the new updates, the PTT key has been re-assigned. 'X' is the new key, 'V' is no longer the PTT button. :)

Hello TruckersMP,

 

Today I am making a tutorial on how to use the new CB radio.

 

It is very simple however people who are new to using it or new to the mod may not know how to use it, hence this Tutorial.

 

Step 1: 

Open your Tab Menu and right click to bring up the cursor.

 

Step 2:

Change the channel by using the right knob. Press it on the right to go up channels and press it on the left to go down channels.

 

Step 3:

To talk press and hold "X" and then talk

To mute a person click their name on the tab and click the mute function and you will not be able to hear them (this is bugged so you can still hear them)

 

To turn the radio off, press the far button on the left.

Video Tutorial:- 

 

 

Remember rules still apply on the CB Radio, so no insulting and bad language. If you see this be sure to report them on the website. http://truckersmp.com/reports
