Today, we are announcing the next step in supporting, engaging and championing the community projects that contribute so much to TruckersMP and our community. A little over a year ago, we presented our Community Contributors project, where we recognize significant contributors to our community, be it via streaming, helping others or running events. We are today launching our Official Partnerships program.
What is meant by Official Partnerships?
The Official Partnerships program is a way of connecting with various instances of the community that are seen to be providing a genuine and high quality service to their users, contributing in major ways to TruckersMP and our global community and have a mutual aim to improve the experience of their projects. Official partnerships allow us to collaborate, engage with and champion these instances and work together to provide even better features and services.
Who is involved?
It is important to remember that our official partners are not staff, but will be involved with areas of the staff team and work closely together. So, we are happy to announce our first two official partners:
ProMods - after weeks of working hard and discussing with each other, we have decided to join hands with the team at ProMods and combine efforts. As has already been announced, this partnership brings with it support for ProMods v2.42 in TruckersMP, a development that we are so excited to bring to you very soon. ProMods has been an amazing project, providing players with maps like no other - detail, realism and a generally fully immersive trucking experience. It is important to note that we will have another blog post relating to ProMods closer to the release so stay tuned. View the FAQ blog post here.
Truckers.FM - a long running community-run radio station, this project is dedicated to the trucking community. Be it providing quality radio 24/7, running events for their listeners or engaging with their community in Discord, they are one of the largest communities that contributes significantly to ours on a regular basis. London, co-founder and manager of Truckers.FM, said "TruckersMP has always played a big role in our radio station. Many listeners rely on our traffic reports and news to receive information while on the roads with their friends. We broadcast adverts for VTC's, events, streamers and all things truck sim, allowing listeners to be in the know of what's happening in the world of ETS2, ATS, TMP and beyond! With 4 years of radio experience behind our belt and being TruckersMP biggest radio station, we are proud of what we do and we have a team of incredible people who bringing round the clock entertainment to your cab. We are excited to be teaming up with the fantastic team behind the biggest multiplayer modification for trucking. We believe this to be a perfect fit for our station, and we are also excited at the prospect of future collaborations such as distributing exclusive updates, teaming up for official events, giveaways and more!".
What are we set to gain from this?
Official Partnerships allows us to work closely with our partners, to learn from them and collaborate together to improve each others' projects and provide even better features and services. For our partners, it allows them to receive information, discuss project launches and strategy with TruckersMP and access special features. For us, we can reach a larger part of the community that perhaps we ordinarily cannot reach and are also able to provide features to our community to improve the game play experience.
How can I be an Official Partner?
Our official partners are exclusive and are chosen from a very specific set of criteria. It is also important that both projects can benefit from a partnership, so we don't accept them lightly. If you think you have something to offer and would like to talk about partnerships between yourself and us, we will be more than happy to engage with you via feedback. Please get in contact via the Community Management category and a member of upper staff will escalate it to the Project Management for you.
We are very excited to be launching this program and hope that it will bring more amazing and exciting features in the future. We look forward to hearing what you
think, and you never know... maybe you will be our next official partner!
