Question

Hi. I am brand new to truckersmp - just installed it today. I just started a game (ats, the only one I have) and when I clicked drive, I was put in something called ghost mode. I got a demand to turn on my headlights, which I did, and verified by going to exterior view #2. around 5 min later and I am still in ghost view. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks in advance

Hello bushmaster12,


First of all, welcome to TruckersMP! 🙂

What you are describing is a perfectly normal feature of TruckersMP – ghost mode. Essentially, when you first join a multiplayer session and pass the queue (if there is one), you will automatically be placed into said mode whilst the game renders in other players, etc.
 

Whilst in ghost mode, you will be visible to all other players, however, they will be able to drive through you and thus you will not receive any damage. The purpose of this is to allow you, and other players, time to make note of your presence and thus reduce the risk of crashes and damage if you were to spawn in the middle of the road for example.
 

Ghost mode will remain in affect for around ten seconds, and will automatically happen regardless if there are any players in your immediate vicinity or not. It’s perfectly normal 🙂

 

Ghost mode, therefore, should not last for five minutes; perhaps you're getting it mixed up with being in a NCZ (no collisions zone) which will activate if you are located inside of a company, garage, etc. in order to achieve a similar result. You'll know if ghost mode has ceased when the text 'ghost mode' stops fading in the top centre of your screen. 
 

Also, being required to turn on your lights is another perfectly normal feature employed by TruckersMP – users will be kicked if they are not activated between the hours of 19:00 – 07:00 (see reference image).

First, thanks for the welcome! I believe it still said ghost mode, and it looked like ghost mode. Let me try it again.

 

EDIT: I clicked the button to drive at 10:14pm. At 10:27, I took this screenshot. Still wasn't in. I exitted the game. Crap, it won't let me attach the screenshot.
