While playing the game, it’s all about trucking together with friends and other players from across the globe. You can socialize in 2 different ways while playing, by using the text or voice chat - CB as we call it in the world of truckers.
Both ways of communicating are limited to a range of approximately 500 meters. This means that everyone within that range of your location can see and hear the chat. Once they leave that range they won't receive your messages anymore.
To send a message in the text chat, hit the "y" button on your keyboard and start typing your message. Once ready, hit enter and your message gets send.
To make it even better, we support private messages between 2 players. You can easily send a message to a single player in private by using the /pm command with the ID of the recipant.
/pm 123 This is a private message to player with ID 123
Replying to a private message can be done with the following command, but keep in mind that this will be send to the last player that sent you a private message.
/r My first reply to the sender
The text chat can also be used to gather player info if needed, this can be useful when you want to report a player on our website at a later moment. This can be done with the following command:
If you want to take the experience to another level, you can use the voice chat and talk in one of the many available channels.
Make sure your microphone is set up correctly on your computer and consult the TAB settings for further adjustments. Talking can be done by holding the "x" key.
