Sparking out of a suggestion from the community, we have decided to create a Community Events section so that users can promote their own events properly and have successful outcomes with it without filling other discussion sections across the forums.
In order to get your community event hitting the roads, make sure you pay extra attention to the following rules and guidelines.
To ensure we can start reviewing any of the below requests in time, we strongly recommend you to submit your request at least 14 days before the start of your event. Any request made after this period risks being reviewed too late and can affect your event.
Event Topic Approval
Promoting your event, that is the main reason why you will be posting here. We encourage everyone to create awesome events to connect our community with each other. To guarantee a minimum level of quality, we require your topic to meet the following rules. Any topic not meeting these requirements will not be approved.
Topic created minimum of 14 days in advance.
In case of charity event: endorsement of a non-profit organization or official donation link for the event by a non-profit organisation.
Have a professional looking post with a banner and decent formatting.
Event Server Request
In certain situations, a planned event can be held on a dedicated server. This server will be set up according to your needs for the duration of your event to guarantee a better experience for all our players.
While we do encourage creativity from our community, we will, unfortunately, be very selective in the granting-process for approving event server requests for your event.
You can request an event server by heading over to https://truckersmp.com/event-request
Every request for a dedicated server will be reviewed on a case by case basis. The following criteria will be considered when reviewing your request:
The event has proven to be meritorious due to previous editions.
Officially supported by TruckersMP.
A necessity due to the type and/or size of your event (minimum 100 participants).
Required to ensure non-attendees will not suffer from the event.
We fully understand you want a dedicated server for your event but TruckersMP reserves the right to accept or decline your request for whatever reason we deem appropriate.
In your request, you must provide full information about your event, including; attendance confirmation page (example ETS2C.com / Truckers.Events), and your community events forum topic. If it is your first time requesting a server, it is important to show evidence your events reach a minimum of 100 participants. This helps us judge whether a dedicated server is necessary. We reserve these servers for events which will truly benefit from them.
Event Temporary Rules
In special cases your event may involve controlling traffic, blocking roads, racing, driving the incorrect way, or anything else that violates the TruckersMP Rules. For this, you can request temporary rules, which are reviewed by the Event Manager and Game Managers. You can include this on your Event Request, in the temporary rules section.
The rules you want to apply during your event will be reviewed and granted on a case by case basis depending on the needs of your event. Our global TruckersMP Rules apply by default unless a rule you requested overrules this. In case no rules are requested, our TruckersMP Rules still apply.
Event Planning Assistance
Whether you are planning your first event or your tenth event, we can understand this is a lot of paperwork. To help you get it all sorted, you can get in touch with our own Event Manager, @Digital, for assistance. You can contact him on the forums for any assistance you may require during the planning phase of your event. An example of assistance you may request is helping out with event rules or choosing the best settings for a potential dedicated server for your event. While our Event Manager will be at your disposal, make sure you put in sufficient effort yourself.
Note that this person is not going to plan and arrange the event for you by himself but assistance will be provided where possible if you need this so you get the best of your event.
Game Moderator Assistance
Should your event have a substantial amount of participants you can also request assistance from our Game Moderation team. If a Game Moderator is available we can request them to support your event.
We wish you the best of luck with your event!
