  • Any evidence you provide must not be cropped, retouched or blurred in any way. Videos can only be cropped time-wise.

Overtaking or undertaking another player in an area of extremely low FPS and/or in areas with large amounts of traffic, overtaking resulting in an accident or anything similar. This also includes overtaking on any one-lane in each direction road where there is excessive traffic such as a traffic jam. Areas with a large amount of traffic are considered to be 25+ players.

§2.5 - Reckless Driving*

Driving in such a way that is considered unsafe and that puts other people in danger, driving backwards, failing to yield, racing other users (except for the Arizona race track), ignoring other players and rules. Being outside of the map boundaries. This includes spots inaccessible by normal driving. Attempting to use desync lag or quick saves in order to cause damage to another user's vehicle is forbidden.

§2.6 - Useless Traffic / Inappropriate parking*

Repeatedly driving to and from an area of high population with no aim other than to cause more traffic. Parking or stopping in areas of high population for no reason. This applies to areas with 25+ users. Using the designated car parks is fine when there is low traffic in the area.

You are not permitted to take a convoy into highly populated area intentionally. This can include (but is not limited to) Calais, Duisburg, Calais-Duisburg road or surrounding areas.

§2.8 - Event Servers

All rules apply to any event server unless approved temporary rules override for a certain event.

§2.9 - How bans are issued

  • The first 3 bans issued are at Game Moderator discretion.
  • The 4th ban is 1 month.
  • The 5th ban is 3 months.
  • The 6th ban is permanent with no chance of undo. Any bans further than 12 months before the current ban are ignored under this rule. This is considered the cooling off period.

If you have at least two history bans of the same length in your ban history, Game Moderators may extend your ban to the next ban history length, regardless of how many bans you have had in the last year. For example, if you have already had two 1-month bans, your next ban can be extended to 3 months. If you have two 3-month bans, your ban can be extended to perm. Note that bans that are extended due to it being your 4th, 5th or 6th ban cannot be removed, they are strictly 1 month, 3 months and permanent.


§3 - Save editing rules

§3.1 - Truck modding

Your vehicle must be functional. The truck must have the chassis, cabin, wheels and headlights. Some players might not see some players' headlights and tail lights if they do not own tuning DLCs. It is also permitted to save edit truck specific paint jobs into other trucks (e.g. Premium Racing paint job into another truck).

It is allowed to save edit default engines and transmissions for trucks (e.g. 750Hp Volvo Engine with Scania Gearbox on a DAF truck). It is allowed to mix chassis and cabins of different trucks as long as they don't extend their hitbox significantly. Attempts to mix parts of cars and trucks are not allowed and will result in a kick from the server.

Adding an excessive amount of items on your truck or placing items where they are not meant to stay is not allowed, any item that is not mentioned in these rules can only be placed where allowed by default by the game.

  • It is not allowed to place more items than allowed by default by the game (beacons, lights, horns or any other item).
  • It is not allowed to place beacons and large horns on bullbars/bumpers/sun visors. Normal beacons are allowed only on the roof and on the roof bars. LED beacons are permitted where allowed by default, while normal LED lights can also be placed on bullbars and roof bars.
  • Small horns and other items not mentioned before are allowed only where permitted by default.
  • Items meant for trucks' interiors cannot be placed outside the truck and vice-versa: as an example, it is not allowed to place beacons inside the cabin or place wheel knobs on bullbars, this is valid for every other item.
  • It is not permitted to place more than one item in one single slot. You can have as many bars as allowed by default; if the truck supports 3 bars that means you can have up to 3 bars, these may be combined on one slot but you cannot place more than what the truck supports by default. This is the only time you may have more than one accessory on one slot.

§3.2 - Trailer modding

It is only permitted to use the default in-game combinations for trailers. These are the allowed trailer combinations:

American Truck Simulator

Image5Image6Image7Image8Image9Image10

You are not allowed to use truck or car parts on trailers. It is permitted to save edit and mix normal trailers (normal short trailer) as long as their hitbox is not extended significantly and taillights are still visible. Trailer wheels may only be changed to other trailer wheels of the same size, both sizes of wheel in the trailer customization menu are classed as the same size. Cargo weight must not be below 0.

For double or triple trailers:

  • You may not change the trailer layout, which is known as "chain type" in game.
  • A trailer must only carry bodywork of the correct size.
  • You may mix chassis on double/triple trailers, as long as the layout/chain-type is not changed (increasing the length will violate this).
  • Duplicated parts are not permitted.
  • Duplicated slot use is not permitted.

§3.3 - Car modding

It is permitted to save edit default trucks' paint jobs on cars. Save editing AI car wheels into the Scout car is also allowed.

  • All wheels must be visible, only AI car wheels can be save edited into the Scout cars, truck wheels aren't allowed.
  • Save edited wheels must fit the car and must be placed correctly. Oversized wheels are not accepted.
  • Any truck part on the car and vice-versa isn't allowed and will result in a kick from the server.
  • The usage of the event van is prohibited.
  • Duplicated parts and/or slot use is not permitted.

Examples of save edited Scout cars: Image11

§3.4 - Supported mods and examples

These are some of the supported mods:

§3.5 - Disclaimer

§4.3 - Use descriptive titles

Do not use titles such as "Help me" or "HELP" instead try to describe the content of the topic. If you for example have a problem related to lags, game issues or anything like that, try to use a title that kind of describes the problem. Example: Game lags? Use "Game lags" instead of "HELP".

§4.4 - No reputation farming

  • Moving GIFs or animations are allowed.

§4.8 - Category use/purpose

A description of the intended purpose or use of a forum category can be found in the category description. Any topic that does not follow this can be moved, and even hidden or deleted. In case of users frequently posting in the wrong category, a verbal warning or even a warning point can be issued. Any category on the forum can have specific rules or requirements that only apply to that category. When this applies, information will be given in either the category description, above the category content or in a pinned topic in the category. Sub categories have the same category-specific rules and requirements as the parent category unless otherwise specified. For example, the ETS2MP bug reports category has the same rules as the general Bug report section. When a category has a specified format, using this format is required unless otherwise specified. Formats are given in the same way as category-specific rules. In a category with strict moderation, any off-topic posts will be given a warning point, without verbal warnings prior. This is to ensure the quality of the information found in certain sections. These sections are identified with a [STRICT MODERATION] tag in the section description.
