Concerns regarding the Special Transport DLC

Recommended Posts

If you have the base game without DLC and you go into multiplayer you may see empty trailers on people who, for example, have the heavy cargo DLC and are pulling heavy cargo. The reason for this is missing models - unless you have the heavy cargo DLC installed on your own, you won't be able to see the load that's being pulled except for the trailer.

 

With the Special Transport DLC coming, there will be people who will use the Special Transport DLC in multiplayer and haul cargo far wider than their truck. Just look at the newest trailer released by SCS:

Spoiler

 

 

If someone drives this on multiplayer and there is someone who has not installed the DLC who drives on the opposite lane, he might hit the hitbox and cause an accident without him knowing how far the hitbox actually reached. The player without the DLC thought there was nothing infront of him. That would be massively chaotic and this could even be used by trolls to create massive crashes. By the way, how the heck are you supposed to turn with a load this huge on an intersection regarding how batshit insane a lot of drivers are on multiplayer?

is this dlc going to be implemented on all servers tho?   my opinion, there needs to be a white list server for s*** like this, because ... well, trolls will be trolls,  only for the real die hard truckers out there who stop at red lights and dont drive down the wrong side of the road

I would think that, if it's possible, TruckersMP would just disable the ability for people to pick up these trailers.

I think there should be a server in which you can only connect if you have the DLC therefore everyone would see what's going on.

There also are AI pilot cars which blocks traffic, so I doubt it is possible to use this DLC in MP.

Hello,

tbh I cannot see this being MP supported

 

I think it also could be that the trailers are enabled and just the player who have the trailer can see the AI car. The AI car may will have non collision for the others then.

However, if the DLC will be able in mp it will be eneabled on all servers.


I'm really curious about what will happens.

i've done it before but it takes real skill and precision and wide turns. i show most respect when i have these and i love doing these so if its removed ill be very sad 

also, yeah sure trolls will be trolls but taking a dlc from everybody else just because of this? thats just dumb. besides the mods handle this anyway because thats what they are there for but some people dont tell them half the time

because they are wide, there will not be enough space in passing the load and another truck.

As the TMP upper staff have already said they will try to support every DLC that comes out from SCS so it most likely will be supported and just have restrictions.

on some servers such as the ETS2 US server this wouldn't be an issue, seeing as how there are so few people there, for EU #2 I could see this being a huge problem. as for the AI pilot cars, they wont make it in, seeing as how they are AI after all and the AI traffic is already removed.

 

maybe they could change the persons gps dot color to show that they have a special transport load so others can see it on their gps and know that they will be traveling a lot slower and taking up more room on the motor ways. I know it would add more into the gps but it might help.

 

I hope this comes to ATS as well, that would be awesome to try and haul one of those loads through the states :)
