Concerns regarding the Special Transport DLC

Recommended Posts

All you lot are moaning but I'm sure the developers will find a way to run it on there servers.  Its will be a lot of script writing for them and good luck to them because I would have a clue it's like me being English and trying to read chineses or indie writing. The best solution is if the AI is running in TMP then when on narrow road one party is halted till the road is clear and you continue. one motorways your AI like police are further ahead and traffic is slowed down and halted on slip roads / entrance and exit roads like in single player. I know trolls would get impatient and try to move ahead but developer could use a system were a message shows on screen to let us know if  it's ignored then a automatic kick ban from the system problem solved and my cat is knocking all my christmas cards off my shelf at the time of typing this little pest.

How about making the wider parts of the trailer a NCZ? 
So the trailers is for other players a normal trailer, but for the driver the trailer is still a Special Cargo trailer. So that person needs to consider the turns etc.
If you would change the hitbox of the trailer, than it just becomes a normal trailer for the driver as well.

This will also solve the issue if 2 special cargo haulers meet in-game on a narrow road. The realistic drivers will try to find a solution, while the more fun players will just drive along, knowing they will not hit eachother.

As for the people without the DLC and seeing the trailers, maybe adjust the normal trailer that is shown and put on: Caution: Special cargo! With small letters: more info on truckersmp.com, So people can look up why such truck is driving so slow.
Also add a light that spins around on the back of the trailer. Do not know the name of that light atm ><

If this DLC would be added the way it is. I fear that, that would be the end of TruckersMP, because of the absolute chaos it will cause.

ive been playing on EU1 (simulation) for a couple of weeks now, and i think if this DLC was implemented on sim servers it would cause no problems. ive not ran across people doing 100 yet, ive seen people waiting on eachother respectfully. people waiting for lights, and properly slowing down when traffic lights are off at night, not doing 80 in 50 zones. 

i large majority of players on the sim server are doing just that, they are playing Euro Truck Sim, and not Euro Truck Racer like in EU2

i think if you install the dlc only on the more serious servers, in combination with player driven pilot car/van (it should be vairly easy to make the single player van drivable) going up ahead halting players, blocking lanes. etc etc. will work fine, and when people are used to it, it will make for a nice change of passe and scenery. on certain parts of the map.

@loly326 That could be an idea, but... If the developers put the Special Transports DLC only in the EU#1 server, it won't take long until the server goes full with people driving those trailers all around the map and doing 110 Km/h everywhere. There is one very important thing that the developers can't implement: Respect. In SP, you see only AI drivers, but they respect and obey all indications from the escort vans. In MP, this would be an utopia. Even if it's implemented only in EU#1. People who never use that server would go there just to drive the oversized trailers. And drive them "their way", of course (full speed, caring nothing about others).

Isn't it possible to make all the people who drive the Special Cargo non collidable? 

See it like Passive mode in GTA:Online, you can't hit people who aren't in Passive mode and people who aren't in Passive mode can't hit you.

@Dubbeledraaideur [NL] this was not declared as it is not exactly known if the DLC will be added and or when it will be added. Could be a very long time before it will be added. So just to correct you it was never declared that it will be added to all servers. others DLC's yes but we will have to wait and see for this one

In this topic Scarface told that they will support all DLC on all servers, if they can get the DLC to work.
;)
