Official Convoy - Sunday 26 January 2020

Recommended Posts

Greetings!

As we settle into the new year and prepare for another exciting year of events, what better way to kick things off than a great big convoy through American Truck Simulator's newest State?!

POSTER

Join us this Sunday 26 January 2020 at 18:00 UTC (Alternative Timezones).

Starting in the most populated city in Nevada - Las Vegas, we will quickly be crossing into Utah, where we explore some of the most stunning views the State brings.

The convoy duration is estimated to be 90 minutes. It may be longer if you are towards the rear of the convoy. No breaks are scheduled, but you are welcome to pull into a safe place should you require a rest.

We welcome the use of B-double/triple trailers in the convoy, however, please ensure you use permitted combinations. Refer to rule 3.4 - Trailer combinations.

Please feel welcome to comment or ask questions on our forum topic!


Route

ROUTE

Departure: Las Vegas, Nevada

Wishing you happy and safe trucking, and we hope to see you there!

I've got few simple issues with the official events :

1. Constantly being overtaken, occasionally rammed off the road or brake checked in the process.  During one of the Xmas convoys, there was admin driving right behind me for a short time, I lost count how many people he had to kick in just couple of minutes.

2. Frequent complete stops, then racing to close the gaps, just to pile up again and slow down to pace of a creeping glacier or complete stop again. If I can't take the bend at over 120km/h because my truck is already on "two wheels" at 80km/h, then I simply can't go faster, or if I don't have over 9000 hp and negative weight, I simply can't climb that incline that fast. This of course leads to even more overtaking.

 

Not sure If I will show up this time, and sorry for my rant.

With your first point:
The event has dedicated staff to deal with these issues. If you have an issue of being rammed you in this instance use the in game reporting system. The staff will look at the report and take the appropriate action. You should also do this for overtaking. Make sure you select the correct reasons so the GM knows what's going on.

With your second point: 
It is really difficult to maintain a constant speed without gaps, stops and everything else. My best advice:

  • Keep enough distance between trucks (about 2 truck lengths), to stop you from any lag, brake checks and give you enough time to react.
  • When you see stopped trucks ahead, instead of stopping behind them (unless necessary), Slow down and roll, try not to completely come to a stop. That way, stopping is kept to a minimum. 

Hopefully this helps a little. Also in addition any issues you wish to let us know about you can do over at https://truckersmp.com/feedback where this information can be taken on.

 

See you on Sunday! 😀😀

I've never attended a TruckersMP offical event that we got our own parking spot. We park somewhere in the city and when it is time for departure, we follow the event team instructions.

There will be a special convoy server. Just join it and take part ^^

 

You should be in or closely around Las Vegas when you join, since the city is the starting point. And make sure you read the event rules, so you don't break them by accident ;)

This was my first Convoy Event. Leaving the Volvo Dealership/Service Area, I followed the truck in front of me, and got teleported back to the Volvo place for "freeroaming"? There was no moderator/convoy escort directing me where to turn at that point. Eventually figured it out.

 

Had a great time, for my first convoy, and was definitely a bit nervous. I look forward to the next Convoy Event. Other than the initial goof I made, I think the Convoy Staff did a great job overall. Thank you for conducting this event.
