The new TMP5 No rule server should be official

Recommended Posts

Why make it a limited time? It should be a server to stay for those who want to roleplay or have fun for a bit

For example: Having it as a server to stay for those who want to use it such as police chases

Any example images: No

Why should it be added?: It's already gonna be added on the 29th

Dear FPSKoda4


Unfortunately today I am going to have to reject your suggestion as it is something that has been suggested many times in the past.



Add mod *:
Generally, we don't add 3rd party mods except for aesthetic ones, this is because map mods bring a whole lot of different issues that we necessarily can't handle. Mods that affect the truck are also generally not accepted since they can have unexpected consequences similar to what we see with save file editing (parts in locations where SCS didn't intend causing crashes, etc.).


Modifications generally slow down the process of updating the TruckersMP Client to latest SCS Game version after an update. Whenever there is an update to the game, the mod most likely needs work to be done, which can take some time to port over to new version, this is one of the reasons behind not having mods. 


The major blocker is the distribution of mods, the larger the mod, the harder it is to distribute. P2p would be an "easy" way, though it still requires infrastructure, in distributing the winter mod, we recently had support from 10gbps.io, even then we pinned a 10Gb port for hours on end, imagine that we'd need that kind of beef every time we updated the mod. Even if we'd get the tail to come quicker, the initial seed is necessary. Add to that, you have to provide a backup since many networks disallow p2p traffic.


We could put the mod behind a paywall, but this is something we rather not, we believe that this mod should be freely available to anyone, with the only requirement being a purchase of either ETS2 or ATS.

More slots on the server:
This is something many people complain about, and we hear ya, we want it too, there's an issue we've not yet been able to nail down. We will increase the limit the moment we can. Increasing the slots is not as easy as just changing the number, it requires server power which costs money, to minimise the lag and high ping with higher amounts of players. 


In future, please ensure you read this topic (and the reply) before creating any new suggestions:
