When you are new to truckersmp....

Recommended Posts

Oh crikey,..yeah,..people constantly honking their horn at you. I never bother with any of that. The only time I'll honk someone or flash my lights as a token of appreciation is when they've done me a favour and Given Way at a junction which is very rare I might add as nobody Gives Way in multiplayer.

Yes. But I say more in the sense of new players that can not see any player, there are people who horn even in tunnel, see a player name already prepares the H key. haha

I think you should at least honk back because doing nothing just seems rude to the other person.

@049David [GER] I find it rude when others honk at me for no reason... Maybe I'm just too focused on how things are IRL and in Spain, there are rules about the use of the acoustic signs (honking) and they are only allowed in 3 situations: to avoid an accident, to warn the driver ahead that we are going to overtake, to warn every others that we are on an emergency service (carrying someone that needs medical assistance to a hospital, e.g.). Using it for any other purposes (like greeting other drivers) is punishable.

Sure, but in TruckersMP honking has established itself as a greeting. And just like in real life I would find it rude if the person I`m greeting just ignores me. But everyone should honk as much (or as little) as they like...

This is just my opinion

@049David [GER] Fair enough. Obviously, what I said is also my opinion, nothing more. And I occasionally will honk back in the game, but that "greeting" is, to some, something like sitting on the honk button since they see you until you are out of sight. That, instead of greeting, is annoying. Even more when they have several air-horns. To me, it's as annoying as when someone with a lot of extra lamps on bullbars and rooftop bars comes towards you with their high beams on and don't bother switching them off. That's what I find specially rude, not the regular use, but the abuse.

Nope, why should I?? I'm not here to entertain people! Many of them don't just give a short simple honk either, they go really nuts by spamming the H button! I got no time for any of that!

If you don't care about seeming rude to the other player then don't honk back. The emphasis lies on "should".

Didn't say you have to entertain them. Just a simple greet back, unless you want to call that "entertaining".

Wow then those players must be really eager to greet you...

maybe people just don't like too tantalize me as much as they do you, but I don't get honked at by a "H" spamming mass of players. If I get honked at, it doesnt involve the described spamming, but just a simple and short press of the button, at best they will flash their lights.

If you are really that annoyed by that honking mass of players you could of course just disable honking sounds in the settings.

Actually i think its quite polite to horn in a way of saying hi, or by flashing your headlights, its a nice way to interact with someone, a friendly gesture (ofcourse if the player doesnt blind you or doesnt make your ears bleed)

 

Its the same with turning on your hazards on, for thanking someone.

 

Kind regards,
