I bought a car, now what?

Recommended Posts

In all seriousness as this is a Simulator game, you're roleplaying as a trucker and that being said... while cars are not mandatory, you can use it as your "off duty" vehicle and drive around exploring and make profit from your drivers.

There is a lot you can do with the car, sure u cannot 'Race' but we all (including admins) drive quite fast in the cars... 

You can hae a drive around with your friends, or tag along with another player (maybe as if you can first).

 

The Pilot Paint Job can be used to convoy or escort a truck which you can do, (as mentioned above)

 

If you so wish to Pull A Trailer With The Car just go to SP and use mods or whatever vhicles you want to do so with...

(that's why we have the mod manager after all) FREDOME OF MODS! :D

 

Driving in EuroPort (EP) With a Car, yes is regarded as 'useless traffic'

This is due to the high volume of players always using EP (for transporting cargo).

That's why they don't want cars there as it will just cause a higher volumoe of traffic, therefore increasing PING and LAG as well as Lowering Everyone's FPS even more.

 

Hope that somewhat will help you understand why, and trust me just explore with your car find people and friends to tag along with and enjoy the ride... after all its a simulator and MP is meant to be enjoyed by playing it... not by worrying about what you cannot do. Rather worry about wat you can do! :D 

 

Happy Trucking/Driving! :P

The police car for admins is great, and now some people are kinda dissapointed that the normal car is 'useless'. But if they didn't gave the normal car and only cars for admins everyone would whine for it to get a normal car.

@Dafkeee haha couldn't be anymore true than that :P

 

I think they have done things right. I don't think its nessisary for normal players to have the special police paint and the  lights and sirens... 

It would just be caotic and cause issues.. 

Admin are like the police of the game so i agree with what they have done. :D

I was working on "Vanguard Professional Pilot Car Service" concept after I bought my first Scout in ATS.  I was going to offer pilot service to lone drivers or convoys. I have a YouTube channel and I record regularly so as part of Vanguard's service, you can have the whole journey filmed so it can be used as evidence against any trolls/rammers ect that might plague the convoy if any (hopefully none!). 

 

Everybody uses beacons and the pilot paintjob, so Vanguard uses the pilot beacons, but the Pacific Blue paintjob. (Considering a custom orange paint not sure) with plates in the windscreen that says "Vanguard" on one side and  "PPCS" on the other.

 

I was going to build a proboards forum so people could schedule services and stuff. Have to write up a pretty big disclaimer about having the right to leave or cancel services in case the truckers are being foolish or are trolls themselves, if real life dives in and I have to miss a convoy ect ect...

 

Problem is, there's so many cars right now and people offering escorts and pilot services, I thought it would be almost pointless right now.  Do you think enough truckers would be interested in using such a service, and, if so, would anyone be interested in driving for one? 

 

 

I'm happy to be the first of what I am sure will be many Vanguard customers (or as it is already being known as around the web: VPPCS, pronounced "vupkus"). I have a very special cargo that I need to deliver and I need an escort service that is reliable but also discrete. I don't want someone asking too many questions, if you know what I mean. And when I say escort service I mean convoy escorts, not the other type of escort service, although that service should also be reliable and discrete.

 

ler me know when VPPCS is in business and I'll let you know when I need the hired muscle, I mean professional convoy escort.

Are we actually going to see admins driving around in police cars? Has anyone seen one yet? I would love to see someone getting pulled over by the police. What if the perp doesn't stop, will the admin/police give chase or will they just hit the big red "kick" button?

 

Admins, let me know when you are out and about in your police cars, I will drive by and perform a minor transgression. Not one serious enough to get kicked but one that results in me getting a firm talking to. I also expect to see all the usual cliche's. For example, if caught speeding I expect the admin/cop to say either "where's the fire, sir" or "who do you think you are sir? Lewis Hamilton?".

LOL! My Vanguard project has evolved (read: devolved) just a bit... no "customers" just yet...and I have to make it absolutely clear that Vanguard does not retaliate or attack rammers or trolls...we're just impartial camera cars, really, so we just let the incident play out, allowing the rammers and trolls to further incriminate themselves, then Vanguard can handle reporting it via Truckers' MP's main site, or provide a link to the video evidence so that the victim may file the report themselves if he/she wishes. I'm sure the hired muscle thing was sarcasm and for a laugh, but the fact that Vanguard already uses a car with beacons on top makes 90% of the playerbase assume I'm a troll or cop wannabe, so I want to cover my bases and make sure I'm clear about it, lol.

^Regarding hired muscle, it's not the trollers and rammer that are my concern. Most of those punks are on my payroll anyway. What I need is the type of muscle that knows how to deal with certain, shall we say, government agencies. (Yes, this is all tongue-in-cheek, I don't really have "punks" on my payroll).
