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, in order to guarantee a better experience for all of our players and your participants.

To ensure Event Management has sufficient time to process your request, you are required to submit your request at least 14 days before the start of your event. This means the last day you can request a server is on day 15.

You can request an event server by clicking on the “Request Event Server” button on your event page. This button will only appear once you have fulfilled the following criteria:

  • You don’t currently have any open event requests.

  • The start date is at least 14 days in the future.

  • The start date is less than 60 days in the future.

  • You have at least 50 confirmed sign-ups. (Please see below for more information on required sign-ups when requesting a server)

  • You have a route map added to your event page.

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:

  • A necessity due to the type and/or size of your event.

  • Your activity on our services.

  • Required to ensure non-attendees will not suffer from the event (at the Event Management’s discretion).

  • The event has proven to be meritorious due to previous editions (minimum 50 sign-ups needed. At the Event Management's discretion).

  • Officially supported by TruckersMP (eg. events organised by partners).

In your request, you must provide full information about your event, including your attendance confirmation page on the Event System.

If it is your first time requesting a server, it is important to show evidence your event will reach a minimum of 100 participants. This helps us judge whether a dedicated server is necessary. We reserve these servers for events that will truly benefit from them.

If your event is part of a clearly named series of events that have been occurring in the last two months then you are able to submit with a minimum of 50 sign-ups. However, If your events fail to consistently achieve 100 participants, you will be required to acquire 100 sign-ups when submitting a request in the future.

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 periodically for event organisers which are known to consistently meet the requirements.

TruckersMP reserves the right to accept or decline your request or disable your access to the system, for whatever reason we deem appropriate.


Event Temporary Rules

In special cases your event may involve controlling traffic, blocking roads, 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. You can include this on your Event Page, in the temporary rules section.

The rules you want to apply during your event will be reviewed and granted by Event Managers on a case by case basis, depending on the needs of your event. Our global TruckersMP rules always apply by default, unless a rule you requested overrules this. Therefore, if 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 ask them to support your event (subject to their availability).


Frequently Asked Questions

Invalid forms of proof of participation include (but are not limited to):

  • Discord Servers
  • Images
  • Videos

Why can I not book my event over a TruckersMP Official Event?

We reserve the right to keep our event server capacity available for when we require it, to ensure we can accommodate everyone who wishes to attend. You can check the calendar where we aim to book events several months in advance, in order to try and avoid clashes.

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 is 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 to a minimum.

Can I request the 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.
