Allow AI models to be used

Recommended Posts

I think it has a good and a bad side.

 

The good side would be, that just having more variety in the car models would be very nice. There are different truck models, so having different car models seems like a nice addition.

But.....

 

We all know what will happen when such and update rolls out:

-Alooot of people wil drive with the cars, since it will be quite the update. Causing probably more mayhem, that we don't really need.

- It is still a truck sim at the end of the day. The fact that the TruckersMP team added skodas in the first place, was quite a surprise. It will turn the game more in a.....car simulator than a truck simulator if we add alot more car models.

 

It sounds like a good idea, and having some kinda of test period (a week for example) to see the results of such an update.....why not?

If it doesn't work out they can probably revert it back to normal.

 

+1 for me....but there needs to be alot of supervision to see if it was a succesful test, or not.

This is not a necessity at first place, since we all are able to drive car, it is just a different car model. But it would be more interesting if other car models ( replacement for skoda of course ) would be allowed so we all can choose the one we like the most. + from me.

I believe they have received this suggestion quite a few times. I do believe it's a good ideia but doesn't seem easy to do... we shall see. (+1)

The problem with that is that AI models are low poly and dont have a great interior , so this would mean either re-work some cars and add interior or keep them as it is and add a scout interior which then does not make sense , then you can use scout only. Too much work for something you already have, just because it looks different it would not change anything that you cant have with a scout.

-1 from me.

I agree with @jiuras, but the only problem is that the AI cars have low poly interiors, while the Scout has a high quality interior. As for other models, I wish there was some variety. At least the Combi version should be there. It is the same, but an estate car. This is a truck driving simulator, but as far driving physics go, it is really good and I don't really know any other game with something similar to this, maybe BeamNG Drive, but that is a physics engine attached to a game and that is single player with no hope for multiplayer (too physics intensive). Also, the Scout is someone elses mod that they bundled in, not something developed by TMP, so they would have to work with the developer. Adding more cars to ETS2MP is more of a pipe dream than anything. It could be done, but the mods of TMP should be okay with this. At least have better support for paint jobs in game, instead of having to save edit. (But this is a base game issue, not an ETS2MP issue) It might be possible to use the AI models and redo them with the modern interiors, but that would be a pain to do so. It might be possible though so that could be an option.

Hello,

 

This is not as simple to do as it seems, as many of the AI cars models will cause a crash to desktop if you try using them in the upgrade menu. It is also worth noting that just swapping the chassis will mean the Scout sounds, interior etc are still in use, as seen in the Escort vans used by the event team or the vehicles from Real Operations; all of which are highly imperfect to the point where the vehicles from Real Operations rarely moved during the event, with one vehicle not being used at all. These vehicles also required a very odd method in order to work, which can lead to issues during updates - with Real Operations vehicles that is not an issue as they are only used on specific occasions, whereas a player-usable one needs to be able to be in constant use.

This would be great to see a variety of cars around instead of just the same Skoda every time. Although it is a TRUCK SIMULATOR GAME, it would add realism as not everyone would like to be driving their trucks at all times. I switch every now and then to a Skoda and roam around after doing long hauls on my Scania. Low quality textures would not be so good but if they specifically made vehicles or added vehicles that would be optimized for multiplayer, that would be nice. They could also add different kinds of vehicles/trucks for admin or civilian use such as firetrucks, police trucks, etc. They could also probably use the in-game props like road cones and such to guide/block traffic. It could even go to a point wherein there are players/characters that can get out of the trucks/vehicles, interact with others, have coffee shops, meets, etc. Who knows right? Been here since ets2mp alpha in 2014 and damn, so much improvement and more to come.

This is a truck simulation game. It's not a car game. Why does everyone interested in a car want a difference? Would it be better if the new model trucks were added instead , the maps were uptadet and the new model trailer came in? @bonafide

 

The thing is that's an SCS thing.

 

Personally I would love to see this suggestion added. It would provide more variety and could actually make traffic look more local. Maybe if players take more pride in the cars they'll respect them more.

Alright. Euro Truck Simulator falls in these categories: Truck simulator, DRIVING simulator. Why not having more models in the scout car? It doesn’t add more cars. It’s the same thing just a different model. It will change the variety in truckersmp AND it will bring some atmosphere. This is a game changer you know? In the first week of this being in the game people will drive more cars but they will be back at the trucks in no time! Plus it will bring more players and it will be more fun driving “another car”. There is currently no peaceful multiplayer driving simulator that only involves cars... we can use euro truck as our advantage!

Meanwhile the event team steal the escort vans from the special transport ( which will never be supported, lets face it ) that no one can use! watch all the police models come in & nothing else 

 

Well said. I was looking forward to the possibility of using that van. Also, you forgot to mention all the new blue strobes for the scout, which we were told would cause lag.
