Greetings!

We've scheduled some downtime on October 26th so our forums can be migrated to a new server. With our ever-growing userbase, we're going to be upgrading the back-end of the forums and our servers to prevent any issues. These new features include more data, better DDoS protection and increased server backups. Basically, this is future proofing so we can all enjoy TruckSim for longer!

You should be aware that (hopefully) nothing will be lost and all will be as normal after the downtime, however, should there be any issues following our upgrade (allow 24 hours just so myself, VersoBit and Max can iron out the migration first), leave a support ticket in our Help Desk so it can be dealt with.

Thank you all for understanding. :)

All services are working as they should be now. We're on our new server now and you probably didn't even notice the switch over. You may notice quicker loading speeds of the forum (your internet connection may dictate this anyway) and an overall smoothness in using the forums.

Should you encounter any further issues, please submit a ticket in our Help Desk for processing. :)

HTTPS has returned!

What do we need from you? Absolutely nothing, the HTTPS is literally just to signify that your connection to our website is always safe and protected. If you're interested, this is our safety rating:



Many thanks to VersoBit for helping make our switch over as smooth as it was, honestly, I was expecting a day's downtime and instead I barely noticed and literally only had to fix a couple bits with cloudflare and the XenForo config - so if you need hosting as smooth as ours at a more than reasonable price, hit them up and tell them TruckSim.org sent you! :)

Go to work and we're on one server, come back and we're on another! Noticeably faster loading times also, at least for me!

+1 on recommending VersoBit and thank you to then once again!
