  • Behind the Scenes: Game Moderation Team in 2021
    on January 21, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    The Game Moderation Team is responsible for moderating the servers to ensure that everyone plays by the rules and can enjoy their time. We have not shared what goes on behind the scenes in this team often, which may have been a breeding ground for common misconceptions such as that we do not do enough work or that we are barely present on the servers. This blog provides an insight into the core activities of the Game Moderation Team in 2021. Report systems In TruckersMP, we have two separate report systems: the web report system and the game report system. The game report system is used to report users directly in the game but does not guarantee a review. As such, game reports can time out after a while. In order to accommodate users to push particular situations for a guaranteed review by one of our staff members, they can utilise the web report system; however, they must record and provide their own evidence. We regularly receive comments from users that they are unhappy about their game reports being timed out. We understand that this is not an ideal situation, but it is a necessary means to keep things manageable around here. In 2021, our team received 287K web and 1.1 million (!) game reports. We are talking about 1.4 million reports in total, in just one year. It is practically impossible to review all those reports with a relatively small team consisting of volunteers, which is why we base our decisions on where our focus is needed the most. In the first half of 2021, our focus was mainly on the web report system as we experienced extremely high pressure on that system. This pressure eased during the summer; during the rest of the year, we were therefore able to shift our focus towards game reports and an increased in-game presence. In total, we reviewed all 287K web reports and 195K game reports last year. Bans and appeals The total of 482K reviewed reports, in addition to live moderation on the servers, resulted in a total of 307K bans. Of those, 169K bans were issued through the website and 138K in-game. Our staff members received 107K ban appeals, of which 5% were accepted. This figure is shockingly low and we regularly receive signals from our staff members that appeals are based on improper grounds. A large number of appeals are solely based on pointing fingers to brothers, sisters or even pets; or are used to say sorry or to ask for another chance. Please keep in mind that when submitting an appeal, your appeal has to be informative, detailed, and contain sufficient grounds and possibly counter-evidence to explain why your ban is not correct. If you submit an appeal that does not meet our conditions or is very bland and lacks solid reasoning, it is unlikely that your appeal will be accepted. Earlier this year, we reduced the total number of appeals per ban from 3 to 2, since third appeals barely ever made any practical difference apart from causing extra work. We ask players to make careful use of the rights that we offer, as abuse of those rights may result in systems becoming stricter in the long term. It would greatly benefit our staff members and the community if we could spend our time on more reports or employ more in-game presence instead of having to spend time on reading and replying to appeals that are based on improper grounds. Server activity and the impact of Covid-19 The most activity on the servers, and thus also the busiest days of the week for the Game Moderation Team, are on the weekends. In 2021, we recorded a total playtime on our servers of 31.2 million hours (compared to 37.8 and 30.5 million hours in 2020 and 2019, respectively). The server activities in 2020 and the first half of 2021 were elevated due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Many countries around the world took measures to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, such as working from home and total lockdowns. As a result of that, our team had to step up their game to address the extremely high pressure on the web report system. The most intense period of increased activity during the pandemic was between March 2020, when many countries around the world initiated a lockdown for the first time, and May 2021. May 2021 was a record-breaking month for our team with an all-time high of 40K web reports in one month and an all-time high daily record of 1,890 web reports on May 16th. In the image below, you can see an overview of the server activity and the pressure on the web report system during that period. The peaks in April 2020, July 2020, November 2020 through January 2021, and May 2021 correlate with the peaks in the globally reported confirmed Covid-19 cases (confirmed by data from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at the John Hopkins University). This may be explained by social distancing as many countries initiate lockdowns as a response to those peaks, and lockdowns cause an increase in stay-inside activities such as gaming. Besides peaks, there are also some drops in activity visible, primarily during the highlighted downgrade periods. When SCS Software releases a new version of the games, our developers have to reverse engineer the updates to make them compatible for use on our servers, and during that time players are forced to downgrade their game version. Activity on the servers, and therefore the pressure on our team, quickly restores once the newest game version is supported. Demographics and recruitment The TruckersMP community is very diverse with players coming from countries all over the world. Although our team primarily operates in English, we offer support for a large variety of languages by hiring users from all parts of the world. In addition to that, we receive great support from other staff members who help us with translations. This ensures that we can deal with reports that contain foreign languages and it helps us communicate with players when they are not proficient in English. Our Game Moderation Team (as of the 1st of January) is globally represented by 105 team members from 33 different countries across all continents (with the exception of Antarctica, as we have not hired any penguins yet). Game Moderation Team members are aged 24 years old on average, ranging from 17 to 50 years old. Moreover, they average 1.5 years of experience as a moderator. Team members come and go on a frequent basis and as such, recruitment campaigns are frequently held. In 2021, there were three recruitment campaigns for the Game Moderation Team: February, May, and December. We unfortunately often have to disappoint many applicants given the large interest in our team and the strict requirements and expectations. In 2021, we received 1,556 applications (data from the ongoing December campaign is not included). Of those, 114 (7.3%) candidates were invited to an interview and 57 (3.7%) were eventually accepted and onboarded to our team. This gives you an impression of how many applicants do not make it through the selection process. If you are interested in joining the Game Moderation Team, please keep an eye on the recruitment page. Concluding remarks As you can see, the Game Moderation Team has not been sitting still in 2021. With our team of dedicated volunteers, we are working hard to review as many reports as we can. Unfortunately, we cannot deal with all game reports simply because the influx of new reports is extremely high on that system. As a community member, you can do your part and help us reduce the workload for our team by not reporting every minor incident to us. Not every incident has to be punished and can also be resolved by yourself by recognising that players sometimes make mistakes. Our goal is to let players enjoy their time on the servers whilst ensuring that they play by the rules. Let us cherish that goal as a community. Looking forward, in the future we will have one integrated report system that will make it easier for us to moderate the servers and review reports more efficiently. Our lead Game Developer briefly talked about that system in an earlier blog a few months ago. Moreover, we are also studying a new ban system which is intended to standardise bans; this will increase consistency, fairness, and transparency among the bans that we issue. More information about that will follow once we have designed, developed, and implemented the necessary changes. We hope this blog has provided a meaningful perspective of what the year 2021 meant to the Game Moderation Team and that it has resulted in a broader understanding of what the team is capable of doing in a year. 2022 will be a year with new challenges and opportunities and our team will continue working on keeping the servers safe to the best of our ability. Drive safe and enjoy your journeys! Game Moderation Management

  • Truck Job Dispatcher
    on September 13, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Hello truckers! Are you ready for a new and exciting feature here at TruckersMP? For a long time now people have been planning trips with friends and there has always been one recurring problem, you can never find the same job! Well, we now have a solution to that, introducing the Truck Job Dispatcher. The dispatcher does a very simple thing, it creates jobs. An entirely new system has been introduced with an interesting and helpful user interface that explains all the basics, you can select your starting company and a specific cargo to carry and you can then share this job publicly, privately or directly with your Steam friends. This introduces a whole new way to drive around the map with your friends and you will never have to worry about not having the same job ever again. You can find this new feature by opening your TAB menu and clicking your right mouse button, then you can navigate to a newly added button in the bottom left. Frequently Asked Questions: Will this be available for both games? Yes, definitely, this new feature will work in both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, as well as with the ProMods and ProMods Canada map modifications. How will this work with DLCs? If you do not have a certain DLC, such as the Heavy Cargo Pack, then the cargos and trailers from this DLC will not be accessible to you and they will not show in the listings. How does it add a job to my game? Quite simply, you will open the Truck Job Dispatcher via the Tab menu and configure the job to your liking, then you will be able to go through some checkboxes to either start the job immediately or to navigate to the company that you have selected. After selecting how you want to collect your new job you will then hit the create button and you will be all ready to hit the road. Check out the new additions to our Context Menu and the Job Dispatcher icon on the TAB menu: How do I invite someone to take a job with me? When you have a job from the dispatcher you can then right-click on someone’s username in the Tab menu and invite them to take a job with you, the user you invite will then have the opportunity to accept or decline this offer in chat, a prompt will be sent to them explaining what to do. We hope that you enjoy this new feature and have fun travelling with the same cargo as your fellow truckers! If you would like to see the Truck Job Dispatcher in action and find out more about how it works, then check out the most recent video on our YouTube channel here! TruckersMP Team

  • Game Development Update
    on July 18, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Dear Truckers, As you probably know, the official multiplayer (known as Convoy) is already here. Convoy is a great multiplayer game, though it is completely different from TruckersMP. Both multiplayers have their pros and cons, but at least TruckersMP gives you an alternative. For 7 years, TruckersMP most of the time was a part-time job (or more like hobby) for me. Usually done at night. In 2018 I had the opportunity to work for TruckersMP full-time for 6 months. Progress then was significant, but back then we had revenue only from Google Adsense and we could not afford investing into server infrastructure or even working full-time for a longer time. That is why I decided to join CD PROJEKT RED in the beginning of 2019. Of course it was also a pleasure for me to work on Cyberpunk 2077! As you may suspect, after this move I had much less time for TruckersMP. Again it started to be work done at night, I would say - hard crunch mode. We started our Patreon campaign in October 2019 and it showed me very quickly that the community wants more from this project. But at that time Cyberpunk 2077 was not even released, not speaking about patches. I could not leave my team there, so I decided to stay until the game was released along with patches. And now the time has come. I am currently on notice period, and starting from August I will have a chance to work on TruckersMP full-time again! It was only possible because of your support via Patreon! But I am still an enthusiast who wants to make this game the best. As you know, TruckersMP has its issues. We all know these issues: trolling missing gameplay features (e.g. economy) low quality a lot of bugs lack of VTC support in the game long waiting for support of new game version missing synchronization (e.g. weather, AI vehicles) But TruckersMP also has a lot of potential, but we really use only a little part of this potential at this moment. TruckersMP still is in its Open Alpha stage, version 0.2. We want more though. We would like to bring Open Beta 1.0. It is not just a version name change in code though. We need to address the issues above and fix them. Do not expect one very big patch which we will be working on for 2 years. This does not make any sense and most likely we would fail. Instead expect many small patches which will eventually lead us to the game we will be proud to call Beta 1.0. Do not think this will come in just one month. For that we might need a year or two. In the meantime we found a very talented person - ShawnCZek. For sure you know him from the features he brought so far to the game. But also Smoky turned out to be a very good game producer, as he makes sure we are heading in a good direction. Within the game development team we are motivated like never before. Our heads are full of ideas, we just need time and your support! Do not hesitate to give us your feedback, what you like, what you don't like. We will be hearing suggestions more than ever before. In the coming months we will focus the most on the technology aspect. We need to improve our tools for supporting the new game versions to make the whole process shorter and more efficient. We need to bring a new replication framework which will improve the quality of synchronization and will fix a few bugs related to it. This should also be easier to add new synchronized stuff to the game. In the future it should also make it possible to bring AI-driven vehicles to TruckersMP. Problem with trolling will be mitigated with the “Global Report System” - reports from the game will be centralized. It will be easier to review bans, moderation of the game will be shortened to handle capacity of our game servers. In the meantime we are planning to talk about bus-related matters with another instance in the community. More details about all of this soon! For now we are hard working on supporting the 1.41 game version, which should come closer to the end of month. From the community perspective it is better to have two multiplayers. You can always play alternative mode. Looking at complexity and dose of luck I would say that it is very unlikely that similar modification will be created in the future. Such an opportunity might never come again. Kind regards, mwl4 Game Developer

  • Summer on TruckersMP
    on June 21, 2021 at 2:32 pm

    The season for hiking, going to the beach and having picnics alongside the weather getting warmer, we’re finally back in summer! We are happy to confirm our continued support for the 2021 summer season for the summer environmental modification on TruckersMP for both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2. These mods enhance your gameplay by adding an improved summer environment alongside adding high-quality graphics that represent summer. In order to use this modification on our network, you need to follow a few steps which are a bit different compared to installing mods for singleplayer. You can find all the information on how to install the summer mod for the 2021 summer season on our knowledge base article: How to install the summer mod? If summer is not your style, it’s no problem as this modification is optional and not required to continue playing on TruckersMP. Similar to our support for other Grimes environmental mods, this modification is compatible with our ProMods servers so you can experience the enhanced summer gameplay all over TruckersMP! Looking back at the amazing Spring we’ve had where we celebrated our 7 year anniversary, saw the return of Real Operations and supported 1.40, it is time to move on and with this, we are disabling our support for the spring environment mod and this mod will no longer work on our network. Be sure to share all your best screenshots using the summer mod with us on social media platform by mentioning @TruckersMP on Twitter and @truckersmp.official on Instagram, who knows - we might even feature you! Thank you all for your continued support and we hope you have a good summer trucker, The TruckersMP Team

  • State of the Project and the Future
    on June 15, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    Hello, We recently had our 7th anniversary, which has been a blast. We thank every single one of you who has been here with us the past years or recently joined. I have planned 2021 to be the year of major changes. The year where we will focus on changing how TruckersMP works (internally) and providing certain highly-requested features to you. Maybe you remember that we had our 2020 Christmas video where I appeared at the end of the video showing multiple pictures in the back. People quickly started decoding the top image and found out what it meant. With this post, I am officially confirming that TruckersMP succeeded in making some major plans come true, thanks to you as the community and our staff team. I want to thank our Patrons in particular because they are the main ones who made it possible for us to have someone working full-time for TruckersMP. Starting July 2021, our Game Developer ShawnCZek will be the first person working for TruckersMP. Our dream is to have more people working full-time on the project, so we can provide better and more game and website-related features to you. To achieve this dream we mainly depend on the money coming from our Patrons. Last year, we were able to set money aside to achieve the first step of our dream. It is important to maintain the current income to achieve the second step of our dream, which is employing a second Game Developer. We hope to achieve this second step later this year. In 2022, we want to continue this path and employ at least one web developer as well, so we have multiple people who can create and maintain features daily. This being said, the Patreon campaign goals have been updated to the current situation and to what would be required to achieve the next steps. What else was visible on the image in the Christmas video? Bottom left picture: A lot of people instantly figured out this shape looks like a bus, which is indeed true. With our Alternating Vehicles, we made it possible that you will be able to drive a bus now and then. But, there is more! Hopefully later this year, you will find out more information regarding this. Bottom middle picture: This image is referring to a unique major event later this year, stay tuned for that! Bottom right picture: You can see a blurry shape of a trailer. It is referring to a custom TruckersMP trailer built from scratch. It will have a lot of customisation options. There will also be additional customisation options for Patrons. What are the plans for the project and the Patreon campaign? Over the past years, TruckersMP has grown continuously and we are slowly approaching 4.5 million accounts! Getting more players means we need to get more staff. In February, 885 of you applied for a position as Game Moderator. 7% of those were invited to an interview and we ended up welcoming a total of 30 new Game Moderation Trainees to our team! An increase of people in the community and staff means that more people want to express their opinions and provide their wish to get certain new features. We love that you share with us how you feel and what you would like to see in the project. As mentioned above, the Patreon campaign is essential for us to achieve our dreams. We will not solely focus on our Patrons alone, that would be a big shame. Though it needs to be mentioned that if we want to grow and if we want to bring everything that is planned, we will need to pay people ... and that means money is required. At the moment of writing this post, no one in TruckersMP is paid to work for TruckersMP. Every developer, manager and team member does their tasks mostly alongside school/work/... To be completely transparent with the community, I will be sharing the number of tasks that are currently waiting to be completed by Developers. This does not include all the 'accepted' suggestions, it includes feature requests submitted by staff members and community, minor and major tasks that are planned for years, and similar. The amount is 207 tasks. We hope to complete the majority of these tasks this year, which would mean that a long-awaited feature is planned to be released. As for the Patreon campaign, it is going very well and the current revenue makes us able to fulfil the needs for the first step of our dream described above. If we want to move on to the next steps, we will have to increase the revenue. As said when we started the Patreon campaign back in October 2019, we will not increase the prices of the current tiers, nor move around benefits of a current tier to a higher tier. We are currently brainstorming what we can do to make our Patreon campaign more appealing for new and existing players. We have compared our Patreon campaign to other campaigns in the gaming industry and were surprised about the popularity of some campaigns (and the lack of content that they are giving back to Patrons). When we asked for your opinions about what you would like to see as a reward in return for your subscription, the most requested one is a custom skin for truck/trailer. While this seems like something we would love to provide, it is currently not viable to do with how TruckersMP is currently built. Apart from that, the price of infrastructure will increase exponentially. A $10 tier is something very likely to come to the TruckersMP Patreon campaign somewhere this year or early next year, but as said above, we are thinking what could be worth providing for such a tier. An early access system or access to testing environments is maybe possible, but feel free to bring up things you would like to see for Patrons. If you are a Patron, what else would you like to see in return for your subscription? If you are not a Patron, what things would make you consider becoming one? Feel free to let us know by replying to the forum topic linked to this blog (or reply to this topic, if you are reading this on the forum). Suggestions Over the past years, you have submitted a huge amount of suggestions, which we want to thank you for. We have accepted, rejected and opened many suggestions for discussion. A lot of tasks for developers were made because of these suggestions. Sadly, we have never been able to give ETAs on when certain features can be expected. We plan to focus more on suggestions once we get our first paid Game Developer. It will then be easier to prioritise features and create a plan with deadlines. There is a possibility that we will ask you which things you want to see first. These can be little things like chat colours or displaying the tag in chat or can be major things like an economy system or maybe even something AI-related . Some previously accepted suggestions may be reviewed again to see if they are still needed, so possibly some of these can be rejected. But we will do our best to explain why something gets rejected while it was accepted in the past. With this being said, on behalf of the TruckersMP Team, I would like to thank you for playing TruckersMP in the past seven years, sharing pictures, videos, suggestions, feedback and so much more with us. It will be nice to see you on the road again and I hope these changes will make your TruckersMP experience better. Smoky Game Producer

  • TruckersMP 7 Year Anniversary
    on May 1, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Dear players, Today we are celebrating seven years of TruckersMP! A multiplayer modification surrounded by an awesome community. Every tireless night of development has been worth it, and we are still going strong today. In May of 2020, we turned six years old and it was only right that we celebrated with a festival! The six hour festival was supported by our partner TruckersFM and we had a massive party. In June, we supported the Grimes Summer Mod which gave the community a summer experience on our servers! July brought us the very first Patreon Convoy which gave those who support us a chance to drive together and have some fun on the way. August then came around and we gave the community a chance to ask the Upper Staff some questions in the Summer Q&A. Everyone took great advantage of this and it allowed us to share some information on topics we hadn’t discussed before! Moving onto September we relaunched our Community Contributor program which was a huge success - it gave some of our online supporters recognition for their work and they continue to help us out every day. In October, we thought it was only right to celebrate with an Official Halloween Convoy and despite all the scary jump scares and twists and turns, it was a lot of fun for everyone involved. Also in October TruckersFM celebrated their fifth year anniversary with a big party! November was an exciting time for us, we opened and recruited for the Stream Team. This team was created to help improve interaction with the community on our streaming platforms and so far it has been a huge success, helping to stream all of our official events! In the last month of 2020, the wintery month of December, a wonderful time of year to give back. Last December we supported the RSPCA and the community helped to raise a huge £1,537 to support animals in need. In January we held our second Patreon convoy and we decided to head through the new DLC Colorado, we had fun and it was nice to bring everyone together. Then, something insane happened, we hit 4 million users in February. This was our fourth major milestone and we were so proud of this achievement - we look forward to continuing to grow with you all! In March we introduced a new feature, Alternating Vehicles and with the ability to vote, users can now come together and decide what vehicle they wish to drive for two weeks. Also in March we introduced a brand new event, the TruckersMP Tournament which put users to the test as they competed to be the winner of the competition through a series of different challenges. In April we moved Twitch channels and as a first stream we decided to give users the opportunity to work together to drive a truck in the Twitch Plays ETS2 stream. This brings us to now, May 2021 and we are just about to celebrate our seventh birthday here at TruckersMP. We can’t wait to tell you all about it next year! So, what is in store for 2021? We are planning some great things this year and we hope that this year can only get better following 2020. We have plans to create exciting community engagement through events and we hope that you join us on that journey! Thank you again for all your support and contributions last year, TruckersMP is an amazing place where everyone can come together in bad times and 2020 proved that. We appreciate every single one of you. Without you, TruckersMP would not be where it is today. We will continue to do our best to give back for all the support you have granted us over the past seven years. The TruckersMP Team

  • 1.40 Development Update
    on April 13, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    Greetings! We understand there is a lot of anticipation towards our multiplayer support for version 1.40, and with it, comes lots of questions. Therefore, we are happy to announce our Development Update 1.40, which will hopefully, answer your questions and concerns. With American Truck Simulator 1.40 releasing on the 23rd of March, and Euro Truck Simulator 2 1.40 releasing on the 24th of March, our community have been anxiously awaiting TruckersMP's multiplayer support of the latest versions for three weeks. Although our support is not yet ready, we wanted to be clear on our current progress, and answer some popular questions from the community. Of course, if there are additional questions you would like to ask, you are welcome to post them on our forum topic. We will monitor the topic over the next few days and answer them as soon as possible. So, without further delay, it's time to answer the most popular questions about the update! When is multiplayer support for 1.40 expected to release? A lot of effort has gone into porting the multiplayer modification already, but there is still a substantial amount of work to do. We are currently anticipating a release towards the end of April. This estimate can be extended if there are any setbacks during the process. Why do these updates take so long? Although a lot of the porting process has been automated over the years, there is still a lot of work to do manually. Additionally, although the TruckersMP Team consists of over 230 members, it's only our two Game Developers that have the knowledge, skills, and tools to prepare the port from 1.39 to 1.40. In addition to them working on the update, they have personal commitments in the real world. To support them as much as possible, the whole team will be participating in test builds during the porting process. If you're curious about the process our Game Developers have to port our multiplayer modification to support the latest versions, check out mwl4's breakdown in our previous Development Update topic, here: 1.38 Development Update | Forum Post. How can I stay up-to-date with information about 1.40 multiplayer support? We will ensure you are informed by keeping our social media channels and information regularly updated. You can check them out below: TruckersMP News | Development Announcements (forums) | Discord | Twitter | Instagram | Facebook I already updated to 1.40, how can I play on the multiplayer servers? As multiplayer does not support 1.40 yet, you will need to downgrade your game version. We have provided a guide on how to downgrade your games to 1.39 here: How to downgrade You can also view our video guide on how to downgrade, here: How To: Downgrade Your Game. Will ProMods ETS2 v2.55 and ATS v1.0.1 be supported? It is estimated that ProMods ETS2 v2.55 and ATS v1.0.1 will be supported shortly after our initial compatibility update for 1.40. Therefore, the ProMods multiplayer servers will be temporarily unavailable when the 1.40 compatibility support is initially released. This is likely to only take a few additional days to support, whilst we make the necessary preparations. Will 'Iberia' DLC be supported? The new Iberia DLC will be supported, including No Collision Zone support in appropriate locations. Will the World of Trucks 'Cruising Iberia' event be supported? If the event has not already concluded, it will be supported when we release multiplayer compatibility for 1.40. It's worth noting that the event will conclude on Tuesday the 11th of May at 23:59 UTC. Has the new lighting system affected the multiplayer porting process? No, the updated lighting system introduced in 1.40 has not affected multiplayer in a substantial way. There are, however, some minor issues with our Scout vehicle's headlights/beacons, which will be resolved for our update. Are there any FMOD-related issues affecting the multiplayer porting process? No! Since client version 0.2.3.1.0, issues related to the FMOD sound engine have been resolved. This will continue to be functioning correctly in multiplayer, in 1.40. Will the Renault T 2021 be supported? Yes, the Renault T 2021 will be supported, including full synchronisation, and CB Radio. Will the Spring Graphics/Weather modification be supported in 1.40? Yes. The Spring Graphics/Weather modification by Grimes has already been updated for 1.40 and will be supported in multiplayer. Our Knowledge Base article (How to install the Spring Mod?) will be updated to reflect the latest version, when our 1.40 compatibility support has been released. Why are you focusing on creating official events, instead of working on the new version? Although the TruckersMP Team consists of over 230 staff, each person has an area of the project to focus on. As such, official events are created by the Event Management and Event Team. They collectively spend thousands of hours to provide the community with fresh and exciting events. However, the multiplayer port to 1.40 is an effort our two Game Developer's focus on. Presently, only mwl4 and ShawnCZek work on the game client, as they possess the knowledge, skills, and tools to prepare the port from 1.39 to 1.40 Why are you still focusing on the Alternating Vehicles project, instead of preparing 1.40 support? Similar to our official events, we have staff working in our Add-On Management and Add-On Team, dedicated to preparing the vehicles every two weeks. This project does not affect the Game Development's progress on porting multiplayer to 1.40 in any way. Why are new DLCs, such as paint jobs, supported within a few days, but major game versions take weeks/months? Our Game Developers have spent a lot of time creating systems to automate a lot of the porting process. Fortunately, the majority of the work required to implement the latest DLCs is now automated, with manual work kept to a minimum. However, major game versions, such as 1.40, still require a lot of manual work. New game versions introduce hundreds, sometimes even thousands of changes to the game code. All of these changes need to be reflected in the multiplayer code and updated accordingly. Although a lot of this process is automated, a large portion of these code changes need to be manually analysed and addressed, which takes hundreds of hours. The game servers have been unstable recently, what's going on? Our DevOps team are aware of the ongoing server stability issues in the past few weeks and are continuing to investigate. Unfortunately, as explained in a recent Status update, the datacentre some of our game servers were located suffered a fire, which resulted in a lot of interruption to our European game servers. Although our servers are now back at full capacity, there remain some stability issues that are out of our control. We are in contact with our server provider and are actively looking into solutions to resolve the issues. This concludes our development update for 1.40 multiplayer compatibility. Although there are still a few days to go, we are all very excited to see you online in 1.40, and cannot wait to wave to you as we pass along the roads of Iberia. Our appreciation goes out to everyone showing support to the team - your words of encouragement are what keep us going! Your patience and understanding are appreciated! Thank you. -TruckersMP Team

  • Twitch Plays Euro Truck Simulator 2
    on March 27, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    Today, on April 1st, we would like to spice up our routine. One truck driver is fine, but how about hundreds more? Twitch Plays Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a social experiment, a crowdsourced attempt to play Euro Truck Simulator 2 through the Twitch chat. Everyone in the chat, with help of chat commands, can drive one and only one available truck and (hopefully) be successful in the game in general. Inspired by many others Twitch Plays games, we expect pure chaos and sudden unity of the chat players This is our first attempt to make a Twitch Plays game, so there is no particular goal to pursue. Haul a cargo, drive without it, make the truck fly - you name it! -> You can check the VOD here <- Chat Commands: Notice You are allowed to do whatever you want with the commands on the stream, e.g. trolling. However, if we notice a user consistently trying to disrupt the stream by intentional trolling, they may be subject to punishment. TruckersMP Team

  • Spring has sprung!
    on March 24, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    Hi truckers, It has stopped snowing, the days are getting warmer, the grass is green and the trees are starting to blossom. It can only mean one thing, spring has sprung! Even if it may not feel like it, we’ve gone full circle and it is spring once again. Where has the time gone!? All jokes aside, we’re excited to confirm that we’re working with Grimes to support the Spring Graphics/Weather mod for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and, for the first time, American Truck Simulator. In order to use this modification on our servers, there are a few extra steps you need to follow compared to installing mods for singleplayer. Upon the mod creators request, you will have to download this mod from a third-party website. You can find all the information in our knowledge base article here: How to install the Spring Mod? As with the various other Grimes environmental mods, this modification is optional and not required to play on any of our servers. On top of this mod, we will be supporting the Default HDR Bloom add-on created by Grimes. Same as the winter mod, we will not be supporting the Darker Nights add-on. With the addition of spring mod and the removal of winter mod, we will see the mandatory headlight times return to 9pm until 5am in-game time. Make sure to capture and share your best moments with us on Twitter and Instagram! We hope you have a great yet safe spring from us here at TruckersMP!
