Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces

Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
This is not an announcement of a change to the current account rules, only a public discussion about the possibility of a future change to those rules. The rules with respect to the number of accounts that may be accessed can always be found here in the TruckingSim Terms of Service. This link is always displayed in the footer bar at the bottom of every TruckingSim page.

As they are currently written the game Terms of Service allow a maximum of 4 accounts to be accessed from any single IP address. Those 4 accounts are expected to suffice for all users accessing the game from that location no matter how many users that may actually be. There are also no restrictions on how those accounts interact in game.

For home locations this system works quite well and allows (up to 4) family members to have their own accounts and play the game together. However, in schools and workplaces there will often be more than 4 people who all wish to access the game from that one location.

We would like to be able to offer a method through which a larger number of users can safely access the game from school/work but without effectively giving individual users a carte blanche to run more than the 4 accounts currently allowed by the rules.

If you would like to add your viewpoint on this issue please reply to this thread. We are looking for the following input:
  1. Whether you are for or against this idea
  2. Any ideas you have on how such a system can be implimented
  3. Constructive criticism of any proposed solutions to this problem


We are open to any suggestions on this idea, however it is not a guarantee of a change to these rules as we need a solution that is workable from a technical viewpoint. If none of the suggested solutions are technically viable we will post an update to that effect in this thread.

What about users that live in the same home or building complex using separate components that share a single connection wi-fi connection?

RE: Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
That is the reason why you can currently have 4 accounts from one location rather than 1. As to whether we can extend any change to such a scenario depends on what solutions people can come up with. One possible change for school/work locations would be to require users to authenticate and link their accounts to a home address (which could not exceed 4 accounts). If the home address is the issue then that system wouldn't work.

RE: Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
i agree with norman on linking the accounts. Currently the way the game is set up you can have 4 accounts at home, and be able to go to a public place and create couple more drivers. Linking each of your drivers to a home account would be the most feasible option

RE: Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
I think the system is fine, 4 drivers was too much to begin with. We have 4,000 active drivers from the whole world what makes us think 20 all play from same apartment? If you live in that type of area then run 1 driver like your supposed to, to think there is 5 of you playing is just absurd.

Any complaints are only from people trying to get around the system.

I wouldn't allow it. You already have to many abusing the 4 accounts from home. Just look at the top 20 drivers.. Notice their starting times when they move their trucks and you'll see what I mean. Hard to believe two, three or even Four Family Members have to move their trucks every day, week after week, Month after Month within minutes of each other.

RE: Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
I think you need to cut it back to one truck per person. Half of these companies are being held up by people who run 4 accounts each. Seems wrong to me that all the top drivers are the same person.

RE: Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
I agree with Hammer31 too!
I have 2 drivers running out of my place, however none of the 3 kids are interested. With that thought, it just shows 4 is plenty enough.
The world is very populated and if only 4000 people are active in the game then chances are, we're fine just the way we are.

RE: Allowing more than 4 accounts from schools/workplaces
I think in the case of work/school that four people using the same location is not very likely. If that is the case, then all of them would have different Ip's for home usage, so link them. Bad enough people use the 4 home accounts for not above board usage. Really one account is fair for everyone. Another idea, if you could restrict multiple logins from the same IP using different windows.
