Rule Update – Q1 2019


Hello Truckers,

It is once again time for you to take another read of our rules and accept them to use our platforms!

The first change to the rules is that we now have a new rule under our §1 - Service-wide rules section. We have added an ambiguity rule due to recent feedback from the community.

The new rule is as follows:

§1.9 - Ambiguity

If, for any reason, there are ambiguous terms in the rules, or terms which could be "open to interpretation", punishments may be issued as interpreted and agreed upon by TruckersMP Management. Any ambiguity falls on the side of TruckersMP, and not individual players. If an ambiguity is reported to us, we will work to remove the ambiguity. Loopholes are treated in the same way, exploiting loopholes will be punished for in the same way as the rule you are exploiting - you should report loopholes, not exploit them.

Most of our other rules have stayed the same, however… there is a noticeable difference with one of our rule sections. We have decided to change to our save editing section (§3 - Save editing rules) and we have added a few new juicy features for you to customize your truck and trailer!

What has changed?

The following is a list of the most noticeable changes:

Trucks:

  • The hitbox is no longer a factor in whether a truck is allowed or not
  • LEDs can be placed on any slot, meaning both “V” LED methods are permitted
  • Spotlights and Michelin dolls can also be placed on any slot (except spotlights on the rear bumper)

Trailers:

  • Trailer wheels of different sizes allowed
  • Non-default trailer combinations are allowed as long as the trailers do not clip into each other
  • Hitbox no longer matters unless the hitbox is invisible

Cars:

  • No change

Has the save editing disclaimer been updated?

Yes, we have updated our save editing disclaimer to make it easier for you to understand. The following is what we have re-worded to make this simpler and less complicated!

§3.5 - Disclaimer

"Make sure that all mods you are using comply with these rules. You are responsible for all the modifications you decide to apply. If your modifications go against these rules you might face a punishment. If you are unsure whether your mod is allowed or not, ask staff members before going in-game. If a mod you use (regardless of origin) is found to be a cause of you losing control of your vehicle, you are liable to be banned for reckless driving."

We do hope that you are happy with what has been changed, however, if you do not feel happy about the changes or you have any other queries regarding this, please do create a feedback ticket and send it to the "Game Moderation Management" and we will look at your ticket as soon as we can!

Happy Trucking!
