Event Server Request
In certain situations, an organised event can be held on a dedicated server. This server will be set up according to your needs for the duration of your event to guarantee a better experience for all of our players and your participants.
While we do encourage creativity from our community, we will, unfortunately, be very selective in the granting-process for approving event server requests for your event.
To ensure we can start reviewing any of the below requests in time, you are required to submit your request at least 14 days before the start of your event.
You can request an event server by heading over to https://truckersmp.com/event-request
A detailed guide on event server configurations can be found here: https://truckersmp.com/kb/935
Every request for a dedicated server will be reviewed on a case by case basis. The following criteria will be considered when reviewing your request:
The event has proven to be meritorious due to previous editions (Minimum 50 signs ups needed. At the Event Managers discretion).
Officially supported by TruckersMP.
A necessity due to the type and/or size of your event (minimum 100 participants).
Required to ensure non-attendees will not suffer from the event. (At the Event Managers discretion).
In your request, you must provide full information about your event, including; attendance confirmation page (example https://truckersmp.com/events), and your community events forum topic (refer to https://truckersmp.com/kb/670).
If it is your first time requesting a server, it is important to show evidence your events reach a minimum of 100 participants. This helps us judge whether a dedicated server is necessary. We reserve these servers for events which will truly benefit from them.
If your request is declined, we will not reserve your requested date and time for a server. There is a chance other event organisers may book the same date and time, so please ensure your event meets the requirements before submitting your request.
Intentionally submitting a dedicated event server request when you do not meet the above requirements may result in a suspension from the system. Please double check your organised event meets the requirements, with sufficient evidence provided.
Evidence will still be required on a periodic basis for event organisers which are known to consistently meet the requirements.
TruckersMP reserves the right to accept or decline your request for whatever reason we deem appropriate.
Event Temporary Rules
In special cases your event may involve controlling traffic, blocking roads, racing, driving the incorrect way, or anything else that violates the TruckersMP Rules. For this, you can request temporary rules, which are reviewed by the Event Managers and Game Managers. You can include this on your Event Request, in the temporary rules section.
The rules you want to apply during your event will be reviewed and granted on a case by case basis depending on the needs of your event. Our global TruckersMP Rules apply by default unless a rule you requested overrules this. In case no rules are requested, our TruckersMP Rules still apply.
Game Moderator Assistance
Should your event have a substantial amount of participants you can also request assistance from our Game Moderation team. If a Game Moderator is available we can request them to support your event. (Subject to their availability)
Frequently Asked Questions
What are valid forms of proof of participation?
The only valid form of proof of participation is the TruckersMP Event System Page
Due to the release of this system we will be allowing a grace period of up to one month from publication for the use of other sign up systems in server requests.
If these are unavailable to you please feel free to contact Event Management via our Feedback where we can look into accommodating your needs.
Invalid forms of proof of participation include (but are not limited to):
- Discord Servers
- Other sign up platforms (After the grace period)
How can I use a custom mod on the event server?
It is not possible to use custom mods on an event server. This is a feature that is reserved for TruckersMP Official and TruckersMP Partner events.
Any custom modded content that is used on our event servers goes through a rigorous testing and approval process, and then pushed to the client through an update. The modded content is then downloaded by hundreds of thousands of players, with each player downloading anywhere between 1-30MB of data. This uses a lot of bandwidth and resources on the network, so we aim to keep modded content pushes at a minimum.
Can I request the Skoda Scout Police accessories?
Police accessories are exclusive to TruckersMP Staff. They are not available for players and it is impossible to request them. We have provided Pilot accessories to everyone for use in convoys.
