To help you when playing ets2 or ats

PLEASE please please if you do not have a drivers ed class experience go watch these.

These listed videos are to help you when in game  as well as to help educate yourself about the real world whether you are 16 and you have a permit or your 18 and you have your full drivers license or if you have your actual CDL (Commercial Drivers license) well why are you here? BUT there are still some things to know when playing this multiplayer mod.

First thing to become familiar with HAZMAT

Tips for multiplayer mod

1. give 100 meters from players in front of you in case of lag from you or the other player in front of them.

2. If you have a wheel or USB game-pad try to drive with your "players near you" screen so you can see players in range so you can be aware of any trolls and watch your mini map aka hud.

3. ADMINS do not show up on the TAB "players near you" list so watch the mini map for a dot.

4. give room for braking distance and turning room at all intersections.

5. Make sure you are not within 20-40 feet space from entrances so players entering or leaving a "NO COLLISION ZONE=NCZ" will not collide with you. Even if your in the NCZ the player inside you will become collision so they will become damaged because you or them are not utilizing spacial awareness.

6. when there are multiple players at a docking area make sure that if your entering the area from the street look for players that are being quick for the exit (they are probably not looking for trucks entering, spacial awareness)  even though the docking area is NCZ there are a few areas sometimes glitched that may not function properly (look in the top right corner for if it says  NO COLLISION ZONE )  since a dock is NCZ multiple trucks will be trying to park in the same space so use a external camera unless you like to be realistic. and once you have parked the trailer get out of the space so other players can park in it.

7.  Try to not sit in Rotterdam or EP= Europort= the sea port that is from rotterdam  (refer to ets2mp in game rules)  

8.  check blind spot there are cars in multiplayer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PP-NIUL6LzY

Very helpful. I just hope people take it to heart.

I started driving with my TAB menu open, my Route Advisor map on the "low altitude, top-down" zoom level (F5 until your map enters the first top-down state) and my virtual right side mirror (virtual left side if you drive UK style cabs in ETS2) to stay aware of other players about a week into playing MP. I also turned the window opacity for the TAB menu almost all they way down so I can still see what it would normally block (typically my left mirror). You learn real fast to throw away all screen related realism when you're in MP. It is not worth making it look like you're actually driving the truck when in MP. Too many trolls to watch out for.

Example image of how your screen should look, even if you're in third person (Mirror on the left if you play ETS2 and drive the UK cabins. The TAB menu can be moved by clicking and holding on the red bar and dragging it to a new location on screen. It can also be re-sized by clicking and holding the bottom edge of the menu and moving up or down):

This happens if you drive like a lunatic on the road. You turn into a @SanguinemLuna .
There will be no need to flip off anymore.
