Community Success Stories Part 5 - TruckersMP Community Radios (3/3)
Welcome to the fifth edition of TruckersMP Community Stories where each edition we feature a story about you guys! The idea of this is to bring the community further together, get to know each other and share our success stories.
Simulator Radio was created by a group of players from ETS2MP.com forums which is unfortunately no longer active. Rick, the forum-goer with the initial idea, quickly recruited Mini, along with ETS2MP members Clare, Alex, and Mark. As the station grew Crumbs came on to provide graphics for the official website and took up the reigns as head of the virtual trucking company (VTC).
Originating from Euro Truck Simulator 2 when it was known as Euro Truck Radio (ETR). As the radio grew and with the later release of American Truck Simulator in February 2016 the radio rebranded to become Truck Sim Radio (TSR). Then finally changed to Simulator Radio (SR) for the release of Farming Simulator 17 which they are known as today. As an alternative, they are still recognised as TSR because of their long-term partnership with a VTC which shares the same name but have continued using the acronym TSRVTC which stands for The Simulator Radio VTC.
The radio and VTC have hosted many events together over the years some noticeable ones such as 100-hour convoy in October 2015 to raise money for the BBC Children in Need fund and successfully made over £1000. Then again on November 2016 raised another £456.00 and with Children in Need 2017 currently in the planning, we would like to share the date that this will be happening. CiN 2017 took place on the 17th November 2017.
