Winter on TruckersMP - Island & Photo Contest



Winter is in full swing, and so is a winter-themed update to TruckersMP: Winter Island. We are also supporting winter mod and are organizing a photo contest to give you a great seasonal experience!

Winter Island

Are you enjoying SCS’s Christmas Winterland event? Well, we have got one of our own! Our Winter Island features amazing decorations made by our Add-On team and beautiful spots for pictures that you can share with the community. The Winter Island is now available on all of our Euro Truck Simulator 2 servers!

From festive lights and giant snowmen to Christmas trees and presents, we have everything to make your experience unforgettable. Explore the island with your friends, take pictures, and celebrate the festive holidays here on TruckersMP!

The Winter Island is located in the middle of the North Sea, between the United Kingdom and Denmark. You can access the island by taking the ferry from either Rotterdam or Newcastle to Bergkirchen.

Charity Event

As you might remember, we hosted our Christmas Convoy last Saturday. The Christmas season is a time of giving, which is why we decided to support Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organisation. We have already raised over 2,000 USD for this charity!

Direct Relief is active in more than 80 countries with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies - without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay.

They also support medical facilities throughout the world with protective gear, medicine, and other care for those affected by an emergency crisis, such as the Turkey-Syria Earthquake, Hawaiin wildfires, Morocco Earthquake, and more.

Visit our fundraiser page: Donate now!
The fundraiser ends on December 31st, 2023.

We will be accepting donations from the page above only. All funds go directly to Direct Relief.

As a thank you to anyone who donates, we will be adding a 'Supporter' Award to your profile. In order to acquire it, you will need to donate through our official donation link and make sure to select the “TruckersMP Profile Award” as a reward. Do not forget to add a link to your TruckersMP profile! Your award will appear in a few days.

Winter Mod

As part of our yearly tradition, we also again support Grimes' Frosty Winter modification to use on TruckersMP in the 2023-2024 season.

By installing the winter mod you will be able to have snow on our servers. There are also optional add-ons that you can download, such as frosty wheels, clean roads, and winter physics.

Find out more about installing the winter mod in this knowledge base article!.


We hope you are as excited about these features as we are. Let’s have a great winter season here on TruckersMP!

Let us know what you think on the forum or Discord and be sure to share your pictures with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtags #TMPWinterIsland or #TMPWinter.

Please keep in mind that most of our team members are volunteers and many of them are taking a break around the holidays to spend some time with friends and family. Support tickets, reports, appeals and feedback tickets may take a bit longer to be handled. We appreciate your understanding.
