BladeNode Trucking Rules

BladeNode Trucking Rules:

1) All drivers and staff must follow ALL TruckersMP Rules. Any Violation will result in disciplinary action and will be at the discretion of BN-Trucking Management. Certain exceptions are given when in company convoys.

2) Show respect to ALL members of BN-Trucking and the Bladenode Teamspeak. If you have an issue with another member, bring it to the attention of BN-Trucking Human resources quietly and quickly.

3) If there is any sign of racism, homophobia, or xenophobia it will be immediately dealt with, you will be immediately removed from Bladenode.

4) Keep swearing down to a minimum during company activities. We aren’t a church, but we also aren’t a bar. Be mindful.

5) There will be no VTC freelancing. You get one return, you will not get your rank restored, if you leave again you will not be welcome back.

6) There will be no poaching of other VTC’s members. We do not want it done to us, so we will show respect to other companies and refrain from doing it to them.

2) There will be NO overtaking. The order we leaving the staging area is the order the convoy stays in until otherwise said by the Convoy Leader.

3) Instructions from the Convoy Manager during convoys are to be followed immediately. Habitual disregard of instructions will result in restrictions in future convoy participation.

4) Trucks must keep between 50-100 meters distance between you and the person in front of you to avoid collisions due to disconnects, lag, etc.

7) During convoys, railroad crossings can cause the convoy to stop. If the convoy is split, then a convoy manager should take the head of the line and lead all trucks to the nearest rest area or gas station to meet up again.

Company Policy

In this section, I’d like to discuss how we present ourselves amongst the TruckersMP community. Remember to follow all of TruckersMP rules as well as our own.

PAINT

  1. Primary colors will be teal Green

If you are unsure please contact a member of staff.

BRAND

-We do not dictate what brand you drive or the accessories. Just please don’t overdo the save edits to where you start to get the TruckersMP admins and mods attention.

DRIVING HABITS

While in city

-If there are other players in the city try to stick to the realistic laws as possible. The last thing we want is Bladenode looking very unprofessional in someone’s stream. Under TMP rules, all stop signs will be treated as yield signs.

Outside of city

-Keep a reasonable speed and only pass when safe. DO NOT cut off other players. If the staff sees you do this you may be demoted.

During convoys

-Keep the proper 50-100 meter distance. DO NOT PASS. Maintain the line and order of the convoy. Keep the chatter to a minimum please, it makes the convoy managers job a little less stressful.

BEHAVIOR IN GENERAL

-Please be respectful of everyone while you’re here, we have many different people and religions from all over the world. If you can’t stand for that then maybe the company isn’t for you.

-Never disrespect the owners, admins, mods, and trial mods. If they are mistreating you and you’d like to make a complaint please go to human resources to report them.

**These rules may be edited upon further reviews and adjustments with out notice**
