In fact, Euro Truck Simulator 2 game from SCS Software does not have multiplayer, i.e. you can't play online in the game. However, a huge community of fans and modders of the game decided that it was not fair. That's how began the project of Euro Truck Simulator 2 Multiplayer, or ETS 2 MP. The project is still in the alpha stage of testing, i.e., the modification is still far from complete. However, now you can surely play ETS 2 on the Internet, fulfilling the transportation, delivery, or just riding with friends or strangers. The main idea of the mod - there is no longer an NPC, every truck in the game is controlled by a real person, and there are a lot people playing on the servers. When meeting unfamiliar driver on the road, you may contact them through added in-game chat feature, and disperse, or to travel together, why not? Many users of online are gladly going to the contact and even agree to take contracts for delivery of cargo at a single point. Above the truck of another player you can see his nickname, the name of his company and the flag of his country, that helps you to decide what language you refer to that player.
In multiplayer games now more severe rules than in the single player, which is reflected in several aspects:
- Now your behavior is watched. There are a number of rules on servers that you should follow, otherwise you can get banned your account, and lose all money, contracts, and purchased vehicles.
- You cannot refuse taken the job in the game , even if it turned out extremely bad - the game will tell you that "it's not cool to do such here, we don't respect it" and you will be forced to continue on the mission.
- In the game you can't just leave the load in the Parking lot, you need yo unhook it in the highlighted area, or the job will not be completed (as has been said, just giving up the job now is impossible).
