Emergency Roadworks

27 Jun 22:41

The TMPRA [TruckersMP Road Association] have recently seen an increase in traffic in the areas of Santa Cruz & Santa Maria specifically the vicinity of the Landslide over Route 1. The TMPRA feel that this is due to Operation Big Sur. We are seeing a major impact in road traffic and thus is causing an impact to regular traffic and is causing severe delays. The increase in traffic is over 500 vehicles [Trucks and Cars].

With the above being taken into consideration, the following measures have been put into place…

  • Emergency roadworks have been completed to increase traffic flow and manoeuvrability.
  • Road improvements will stay in place until the landslide has been cleared.

Date of removal: July 16th

Please see a following blueprint of the roadworks that have been completed out of hours by the team at TMPRA: Blueprint

Going of what was positioned in the above blueprint, the following is a bird’s eye view of the finalised project: Finished

This has now been implemented and is effective Immediately.

Additionally, please remember to avoid collisions and when applicable… give way to other drivers to make sure that the traffic can continue in and out of the zones clearly and smoothly.

Thanks,

The TruckersMP Road Association

Thank you to Add-On Team member EG0611 for making this possible!

Community Success Stories Part 8 - Trucky app

02 Jun 19:19

Created by Community Contributor dowmeister, Trucky was first released in April 2017 as a playground project for mobile app developing, Trucky is now in its 2nd version with more than 10k downloads on Android alone.

When it first released it featured some basic functionality such as TruckersMP servers status, events and meetups from ets2.com, player search and a news list from SCS and TruckersMP RSS. Live map integration came later in May 2017. The first iOS release arrived in June 2017. Later down the road Steam authentication was added to allow the integration of the friends list. In September of that year live traffic information was added with collaboration from one of our in-house developers: Krashnz followed up by the addition of events listed on truckers.events. With the help of the community, the app is now available in 26 languages.

Being a learning project the code was still immature and it was time to start from scratch to apply all that was learnt and build a more solid app with more features.

In December 2017 a second version was published with a new look & feel, a new map that's no longer based on ets2map but a fully standalone one built with the help from people at vtlog.net. Subsequent updates saw the addition of an integration with vtlog.net, a completely new section "My Profile" where users can view their own profile as well as those of their connected friends and lastly full support of customisable push notifications for news (both TruckersMP and SCS blog), TruckersMP releases, start times of events and online friends.

To facilitate translations a portal was created which pushes new versions directly to the app after they are published without the need of a new update of the app itself.

Currently the app is used in more than 100 countries worldwide with the most active countries being Germany, Poland, France, United States, Turkey, Brazil, the Netherlands, South Korea and the United Kingdom. It is used daily by hundreds of unique users and has on average over 70k screens each month (page views).

Alongside the app there is also a Discord bot (TruckyBot) that is installed on more than 600 Discord guilds serving over 94k users.

The large-scale collaboration and global impact that this project has on this community grants it a place in the impressive line-up of success stories.

Here is an FAQ section related to GDPR and what you can expect:

What is GDPR?
GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation taking effect on 25th May 2018. You can find out more information about it here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/.

What has changed to make you GDPR compliant?
You are now able to create Data Dumps to see what information we store about you and have added the ability to delete your account.
