Short link to this article:
In September 2021 we released a new feature, the Truck Job Dispatcher! It allows you to create your own jobs directly within TruckersMP, this means that there are no difficult processes, all you have to do is configure the job to your liking and press go!
How do I use the Truck Job Dispatcher?
Using the Truck Job Dispatcher is as simple as pressing TAB and then clicking on the dispatcher icon . You should then see a screen appear similar to the one below which allows you to customise your cargo in different ways and also preview the trailer that you will be taking.
There are a number of configurable options here, such as the source city and company, which only shows cities that have been discovered, as well as the destination city and company, which allow you to choose where you wish to take your delivery to. You will also find a cargo dropdown where you can select which cargo you want to haul, selecting the toggle button below will list cargos that are only compatible with the two companies you’ve selected.
Beyond this there are two more toggleable buttons, these are quite self-explanatory, but note that if you wish to take a job immediately that you need to be within 400 meters of the company. If you choose to navigate to the source company, you will then have your GPS modified to include this company which will make things much easier for you.
Custom Privacy Options
Included with the Truck Job Dispatcher are custom privacy settings to suit your needs.
Private - Nobody can copy your active job, meaning you have to share the job with that player to take the same cargo.
Steam Only - Anyone on your steam friends list can copy your active job.
Public - Anyone can copy your active job.
When another player shares a job with you, you will be presented with a message where you can accept or decline the job via the chat.
