Along with update 0.1.4, the multiplayer developers added the settings available when starting the multiplayer in the open TAB-e (to launch the settings window, hold the RMB, move the cursor to the Settings button and press the LMB):


General tab:

  • Development logging - enable / disable logging. Turn on if there is a possibility that you will publish bug reports or violations of other players;
  • Drivers animation - on / off animation of drivers in cabs, slightly affect performance;
  • Smoothing distance - the distance at which trucks and trailers are loaded in high quality. Does not work if the "Use low detailed models" setting is enabled;
  • Season effects - on / off snow multiplayer weather effects. Disable if you are not using a winter mod.
  • Steam notifications position - setting the position of the Steam notifications during the game;
  • Player tag - setting a tag in front of a nickname (tags containing Cyrillic may cause errors when starting the game!);
  • Load cabin accessories - display of cabin accessories for other players (a reboot of the game is required!);
  • Load flags - displaying flags from DLC players (works only if you have this DLC) affects the FPS level!
  • Scale nametags - tags and nicknames of players are scaled depending on the distance to them - the closer to the player, the larger the font;

Thank you for the explanation of each setting in the TAB, could be useful to some! 

I think if you hover over the options, there is a little text too in the game itself :)
