Together we drive!

12 May 15:13

Hi everyone,

TruckersMP has a huge community of over two million players who all enjoy being together. In that sense, this amazing community creates many events and has already held countless convoys. All these events are forming a very big part of being together and meeting new people. The online trucking experience would only be half as good as now if there were not the great contributions of those people who plan, organise and hold events. We really appreciate the efforts as well as the dedication and thank everybody who has hosted a convoy so far.

Nevertheless, despite all the success, the Management has received quite much feedback about the way events are being promoted and held. That made us think about what can be improved. Since we want to encourage everybody to host a convoy or event, there should not be such formal restrictions as having a certain number of posts on the forum. After all, it is about the community and the game, not the forum. That being said, many changes were made and can be found in the updated topic of the Community Events Information topic, here.

Having introduced these improvements, we hope that it will be easier for everybody to host an event for ATS or ETS2. If you are somebody who always wanted to be the driving force and leader of a convoy, do not hesitate anymore and work on your project! Should you be stuck at some point, you can approach our Event Manager, Digital, who can also have a look at the current progress and possibly assist you if help is required. Note, however, that he will not be the one creating the convoy for you. When you are finished successfully planning your event, you will be easily able to host it thanks to the new standards we have set.

If you want to share your thoughts, ideas or add opinions, you can do so on the forum.

TruckersMP Facebook Group Rules Update

10 May 17:01

Hey Truckers!

Myself and the rest of the Upper Staff team have spent the past few days updating the rules for our Facebook Group!

The revised version of the rules can be found here

What is the Facebook Group?

The Facebook group is an English only post group where players/members can post screenshots and funny moments when you are out there on the road. It is also a place to interact with the rest of the community and possibly make friends and convoys too!

How can I join?

Here are 3 simple steps to join the group:

  1. Log into your Facebook account
  2. Go to the following link https://www.facebook.com/groups/truckersmpinternational/
  3. Click the blue button that says "+ Join Group". A group moderator will then review your request to join and approve you into the group!

Along the left hand side of your homepage, you should then see this

Facebook Left Side

If you do not see this, search TruckersMP International - Official in your search bar

Why are there changes to the rules?

We have decided to re-write the rules to make them ultimately clearer for you to understand. The rules have also been merged over to the TruckersMP forums so we can keep everything In-House just like the main rules are. We have also listed the moderators and the admins that would be the point of call if you have any issues!

It is vital that if you are a member of the group that you read through the rules as they are very important and we would not like your content to get hidden / deleted as you did not follow the rules.

I hope you to see you all in the group soon!

Kindest Regards,

Horizon [TruckersMP Community Manager]

TruckersMP 4th Anniversary & 100th blogpost

30 Apr 15:42

Dear Players,

Today, 30th April 2018 marks TruckersMP’s 4th Birthday. Over the past four years, the modification, community and staff have grown by the masses.

The Player Base...
On January 2nd, 2016, we reached 750,000 members and only around half a year later, we reached the big one million. But, it did not stop there. On January 21st of this year, we announced we had reached a massive two million player accounts. At this time of writing, three months later, we sit at 2,122,244 player accounts in total.

The Team...
The team started as developers and testers, expanding into Game Administration with the release. Later, Forum Moderators and Support teams were created in order to ensure the help and support of the community are out there. In 2015, the Project Manager role was introduced and the Media team was created. The year 2017 brought the introduction of the Game Moderator Team Leaders, Trial Game Moderators and a big restructure of Upper Staff which introduced the Game Manager role. Recently this year, we introduced the Social Media, Events and Add-On teams. As you can see, since the modification's release four years ago, we have massively expanded the team to make sure we keep up with the community needs.

The Modification…
From player name tags in 2015 to the scout car and CB radio in 2016, TruckersMP Developers have added lots of new features to the game we all know and love to enjoy while playing with our friends and colleagues. Some of the massive changes made are two different report system updates, most recently with the introduction of “demos” which allows Game Moderators to see the past 2 minutes of movement for the reported players. In addition, the implementation of the Caravan trailer, scout cars now also have something to pull within the mod. At the very end of 2016, we also introduced a new auto patcher which allows players to update their game without redownloading the whole mod again.

The website
In January 2016, our Web Developers released a completely new and overhauled website. Since this date, we have written 99 blogposts, and infact, this one makes our 100th! Very fitting...

What's next?
Well, we don't plan to be disappearing anywhere, if that's what you are asking...

Seriously though?
Look out for more news coming soon! 

We would like to say a massive thank you to everybody in the community and staff, new and old as you have all contributed to what TruckersMP is today.

Here is to another year!

Introducing the "Add-On Team"

29 Apr 16:28

Hello everyone,

As you all know, this multiplayer modification has started from basically nothing and built up a community with over two million people! The story behind the multiplayer modification is rather interesting and can be looked at with great success. While it was very hard for the developers mwl4 and kat_pw to maintain the servers and update the game in time, there was actually never the time to introduce proper add-ons or other little gadgets which make the online experience even more enjoyable. Still, there was enough time to work on an additional project, being the Scout car. It was introduced and has never really changed - until now! There are people in the team who dedicate almost every minute of their spare time to this project. Because of that, the Scout car is finally getting reworked.

On that occasion, it is a perfect point in time to announce the most recent addition to the TruckersMP staff - the "Add-On Team". It is a small team with invaluable modding experience and knowledge. They are going to be the first people in charge of very own multiplayer modifications. Their main occupation will be creating awesome mods to enhance your online gameplay! The caravan is an example of what you can expect from this team.

However, having introduced this team does not mean that every mod suggestion is going to be implemented! Only very few selected mods which are multi-purpose useful will be considered and possibly implemented. We kindly ask you to understand this concern.

If you want to share your opinions or add something to this topic, you are free to do so on the forum.

TruckersMP Real Operations V4

21 Apr 11:11

Banner: TruckersMP Real Ops 6th of may 17:00 UTC

Hello everyone,

On the 6th of May at 17:00UTC we will be hosting our fourth Real Operations event. For a change, we have decided to hold this event on American Truck Simulator. During this event, our staff team will be creating realistic events on the routes shown below. Please note, trucks are the only vehicles allowed to be used by players during the event, the scout cars will not be able to be used.

You can see the time in your local time at notime.zone, here.

Realistic events as custom roadworks, police/border controls, fake accidents and a lot of police force showing on the route. Make sure you behave, or you might get pulled over! These random events will be created by our staff team and by our staff team only, no player interference. During this event, there will be no convoy leader. You could drive alone, or drive with a bunch of friends on the planned route while experiencing a higher level of realism simulated by our staff team. You can take a break easily or drive non-stop. Perhaps if you're up for a challenge, why don't you do the return as well? It is up to you! The approximate end time is 3 hours later, it depends on how much staff there is left and how many players are still driving.

Route Information:

A couple different routes can be driven during the period of the event, you will find realistic events occurring on each of these routes. Please note, there are multiple starting locations such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, El Centro, San Diego, and Carlsbad. If you see a large amount of players in the initial city that you spawn in, don't hesitate to switch to another city as a starting point. Route 1 RO4 Route 2 RO4 Route 3 RO4

This event will on a dedicated event server and will be streamed on our twitch channel twitch.tv/truckersmp.

Enjoy,

TruckersMP Team
