      Current development status [overview + info]   12/04/17

      Hey truckers, quite alot happened recently and we are getting many questions from you. To help you getting your answer much quicker, here is a recap of the latest information in regards to the Italy DLC, the Special Transport DLC, the wintermod and the latest game updates.   SCS released the Italy DLC. This DLC is not properly working in multiplayer at this moment. Until official support has been added, use the DLC on your own risk. You won't get banned for driving in the Italy area, but you might experience issues with missing NCZ and other minor bugs.   American Truck Simulator is not supported for quite some days now.   The wintermod will be added soon.   The Special Transport DLC is not guarantueed to be included within the first few patches. Due to the complexity of the situation of how the content of this DLC operates, it is possible that support for this specific DLC will take a long time, or in worst case scenario won't be supported at all. Please bear with us and give our developers enough time to make sure everything goes alright. Putting pressure on them or creating a massive amount of topics about it is not going to change the speed of development.    As always, our team is working hard to make sure we can give you the best experience. We hope to provide you a new version of our mod with support for ATS and ETS2 real soon, but we are currently not able to give you an estimated date of release. We thank you for your understanding.

The first time I tried to join, I had to wait 35min, and finally to see a message saying that my session was invalid and I had to restart the game... And the queue was way too long to even login later, and when I finally managed to connect to the server, my connection broke 3 times and had to go back in the queue, to finally join and play 15 minutes before the end of the event... REALLY DISAPPOINTING

So now that I actually had a chance to play, here are my thoughts:

 

I first had to wait nearly an HOUR AND A HALF to join the server. 850 slots with well over 500 people in queue, and the admins thought not to do anything? I understand that lag was pretty bad (I was there), but would it not make sense to, you know, open up a second server? The same thing could be accomplished with half the staff if they were coordinated enough, which it seems like they weren't.

 

After I finally connected, and waited a good 15 minutes to get through the queue, I hopped over to Salzburg and began my journey. Wasn't too bad, encountered some people here and there. Got into some traffic, which I anticipated and actually liked. Traffic was great, and the people breaking rules didn't really piss me off or anything. What DID piss me off was how poorly the event was done. It felt like a last moment "lets just direct traffic a little bit around a crash and be done." I waited in traffic for a good 30-40 minutes, only to go through the actual event for a good 10-15 seconds. And that was EXTREMELY disappointing to me.

 

Where were the "custom roadworks, police/border controls, fake accidents and a lot of police force showing on the route. Make sure you behave, or you might get pulled over!" we were promised? Where was the excitement? All I saw was admins in one place. I followed their directions for a good 10-15 seconds, then continued on and saw literally nothing else.

 

What a disappointment. Poor communication, lack of creativity, and little care for what was supposed to be a "community event".

Hi @SDCore,

 

I'm dissapointed you have had a bad experience tonight, firstly please give me the chance to defend my choice on the amount of slots:

 

So, I've chosen this amount of slots because it's quite a small route. Sure, we could've made it bigger but then we even had less events than what we had now. Also, at some point there were 600+ players in Salzburg. An extreme amount of players, and extremely hard to manage properly. It was my choice to reduce the slots to this amount, else you would've seen next to nothing. 

 

Secondly,

We had custom roadworks and police controls in place. Keep in mind that there were 800 other people driving around, that you haven't been pulled over doesn't mean nobody has. 

 

Opening a second server is impossible, I can't manage 2 servers at the same time, and I was already running short on people this event.

 

I understand and appreciate your feedback, I'm also very sorry you didn't get the experience you felt you should get. We'll take your feedback in our organisation for our next event, we're thinking about 1500 slots but you should still expect a queue.

 

Thanks,

^ May I add to the above, the more roadworks and accidents there would have been on the route, chances are that the whole time you would have been sitting stationary in a traffic jam.  I myself pulled over 3 people where I could so people were being pulled over.  remember we also have to look out for the rule breakers (for eg by reviewing reports) and also make sure the road layout is correct by blocking bits off with our cars.

 

If you would have opened up more slots, it would have been impossible to drive, forget pulling over.  I had 3fps on most areas of heavy traffic which means driving is impossible.  That was only with 800 people.
