Common Settings

You can access the TruckersMP settings by pressing [TAB] and clicking the “gear” icon.

  • Season Effects - Toggle falling snow effect
  • Discord rich presence - Allows you to appear as playing TruckersMP on Discord.
  • Tag - Set a custom tag and color that will be displayed next to your name.
  • Scale nametags - floating usernames and IDs will scale accordingly, depending on the user’s distance.
  • Speed limiter - Limits your maximum speed on Simulation servers to 90 km/h.
  • Default CB Radio channel - Changes the CB Radio channel which is enabled when you start the game.
  • Extended CB Radio sounds - Toggles the beep sound in the beginning and in the end of a CB Radio transmission.

Additionally, on the Graphics tab, “Additional lights” toggles drawing other players' beacon effects.

Engine sound type
You can change how the engine of other players’ vehicles sounds like. This was done to provide some diversity; while one option may sound better and detailed than the other, it might come with certain sound issues and limitations.

  • Game traffic - this is the default value and is primarily supported by TruckersMP. The downside is that these engine sounds are generic and all trucks (or cars) might sound the same. On top of it, most of the engine sound effects are missing, namely turbo, engine brake, and retarder.
  • Custom engine sounds - the engine sounds correspond to the truck engine and come with all effects. However, due to their complexity, sound glitches might appear. Support for this type is not guaranteed.

Chat Settings

These settings can also be accessed within the TruckersMP settings, by pressing [TAB], clicking the “gear” icon and then navigating to the ‘Interface’ tab.

  • The chat is automatically resized depending on resolution and screen size, but can also be manually scaled by adjusting the ‘HUD scale’ slider (between 80-120%).
  • Timestamps for messages in chat are shown by default, but this setting can be disabled by checking ‘Show timestamp of chat messages’.
  • The option to additionally display the in-game ID for a player who is mentioned is disabled by default, but can be enabled by checking ‘Show player’s ID for mentions’.
  • ‘Chat mouse input mode’ is automatically set to ‘Enabled’, meaning the cursor appears when chat is opened. This can be changed by selecting the other available options, such as ‘Disabled’ or ‘Enabled on mouse right button’ - this is ideal for those using mouse steering.
