  1. Hi there everyone! My Apologies this is late to TurboDuck and was probably missed by anyone not in our Community Discord. Going forwards, I will continue to cross post updates. I've also updated the TDU World Website so the latest status of any features, including confirmed server issues, can be found over on the Status Page TDU World Server Update: April 2022 We're pleased to announce that after a longer than ever expected period, there is finally a update to the TDU World Server! The following is now out of Beta: Anti-Piracy has now been turned OFF! - Players using keys shared by the community will now be able to play TDU World Online. You asked, and we have listened. Notice: You will NOT be able to play TDU World with a cracked EXE. You may find a clean copy of the game on Internet Archives, Install TDU World Launcher, it will update your game as required, then when prompted, activate your game using the Key you have sourced from the internet. We cannot provide support for any cracked copies of the game, so please don't ask us directly or in troubleshooting about cracked editions of TDU2. Lobbying 2.0 - Finally Live! We're still looking into various flaws in the system, however Lobbying has been improved and should be more stable. If you're having issues, make sure you've opened Port 8889, as this is very important to being able to host and join players! Some Lobbying issues are due to the launcher being unable to properly detect NAT. A Launcher Update is coming soon, so please be patient with us. Races - Thanks to Lobbying 2.0, we're pleased to announce that public testing for Races is now under way. Please note, we're aware of a bug that may kick players from joined race lobbies with a "no game found" message. This can be bypassed if the race host starts the race as soon as you join. We're working to resolve this as quick as we can. Friends - You may now send and receive Friend Requests, Add users by Username, and Join Friends if they're online! Friends online, will show notifications when they join or leave your lobby. This is a little bit of a bug, however over time we're hoping to improve this so real time notifications will work again in the longer term. Map/Joining - We're still blowing some cobwebs out of these functions, however the Map should now start working properly once you're in a lobby, and Joining Friends, Recent Players, and teleporting to players in your Lobby, should now be semi-functional. We are aware that occasionally, Map Updates behind the scenes may cause people's games to crash, we're working on resolving this as quick as we can. Statistics/MyTDULife - At this time, basic stats such as Money, Vehicles/Houses Owned are now syncing again, however MyTDULife is not functional until further notice. We hope to have an update for this soon. Leaderboards - We're still working on implementing leaderboards, so for now you will only see a "Coming Soon" entry. No Times or Scores are syncing to us yet. Dealerships - We're now able to control what vehicles appear in any dealership. At this time, only the standard vehicles will show in each dealership, however in the future we hope to utilize this feature during special events. Casino - Until further notice, Casino is joinable, however all the functions are disabled so Casino Games, the Audi Race or the Bar are NOT accessible yet. As soon as each part of the Casino is ready, we will open each game mode up as necessary. Expect an update very soon. Racing Centers - Until further notice, Racing Centers are NOT accessible on the TDU World Server. As soon as they're ready, we will open them up. Clubs - Until further notice, Clubs are NOT Accessible on the TDU World Server. As soon as they're ready, we will open them up. Expect an update very soon. If you have any issues whilst playing on the TDU World Server, please post in troubleshooting and we will investigate. At this time, we are working almost daily to produce bug fixes and prepare more features for release, your input matters! Team TDU World are still working on the TDU World ModPack. Xarlith is now our Mod Pack Manager, continuing to work extremely hard on the pack alongside the rest of our team. As always, please do not DM TDU World Staff regarding updates etc. We will provide news when we're ready! Thanks to everyone who continues to support TDU World, we're very keen to continue working hard to ensure we bring you the best TDU2 Server, and eventually Mod Pack too.
  2. Hi @Avatarzan, As of yesterday, the TDU World Server has gone through a period of updates. We're aware at the moment there is an issue with the game crashing for multiple users both in free roam and when racing. I'm currently working on reproducing the issue and resolving in a new update which will go live as soon as it is ready. The Casino and Club are currently Disabled on the TDU World Server as they are not yet ready to play. I encourage you join the TDU World Discord for the latest news and real time troubleshooting as I am most active there, as are the rest of the TDU World Team.
  3. OMG! Is this news?! Yeah, we know it's been a while since we've done a proper news announcement. We're often extremely busy! Let's begin shall we? What is going on with TDU World now? TDU World and its staff have not gone anywhere, in fact in the last 6 months we've grown to almost 50 members including our Beta Testers! We want to assure the community that there is almost always something being worked on in the background. If we're quiet it usually means we're working on something major. Unfortunately, a project of this scale means that now and again, we have to re-evaluate our work to ensure we're on track to release good quality content per our promise. With this, we’re announcing that there will likely not be any updates coming to the Public Servers, at least for another 3 months. We have had to rewrite a lot of fundamental features in the last 6 months including but not limited to Lobbying to ensure they work as planned, with no issues that may restrict other features as we expand. This work is still ongoing, as discussed later in this announcement. Remember: As long as you are patient, we promise the wait will be worth it! Our promise to the community as always, is that when things are ready, we will release them. This is never going to change. So, what's been worked on? Between the Server Developers and the Mod Pack team, the following has been worked on: Server News The TDU World Server Development Team have been extremely hard at work over the past few months, implementing new features and expanding currently implemented features. Here's a run-down of the current status: Public Servers: Over the last few months, we've made many smaller changes behind the scenes to improve the Public TDU World Servers, most notably when we accidentally broke our Server Status page moving over to Linux. We're well aware that TDU World hasn't received any major public updates since release in February. Despite our best efforts to try to release content, it has become an increasingly difficult task due to many factors, most notably how busy our teams can be at any moment with their own lives. Remember, there’s only 4 of us working on the server at any given moment and we not only have to create the server, we have to pull apart the game’s inner workings first and this is no easy task. The following is Live on the Public Servers: Freeroam: Including Co-Op Driving, and Police Chases No other features are currently due for release yet, and until Lobbying 2.0 is ready there won’t be any further Server Updates. Coming Soon: Lobbying 2.0: One of the biggest and most important changes to TDU World's Servers is Lobbying 2.0: Lobbying 2.0 will bring better, faster in game lobbies, no more false sessions, no more dead lobbies. Multiplayer Racing will make a return too, including head-to-head, all mini games, and Matchmaking. (Support for Clubs, CRC/ORC and Casino Races not included) Lobbying 2.0 will also bring with it better user tracking on the Map, and improve the ability to join player’s sessions on the fly. Friends: The ability to use the Friends List will be making a return soon. The team have almost completed work on this with just a few bugs to iron out. DLC: We're pleased to announce that work on the DLC portion of the TDU World Servers has almost been completed. TDU World Players will be gifted the total amount of TDU World Tokens to unlock every DLC Item in the game, including Casino once we release support for it. As we have warned in the past, if you haven't unlocked the DLC after this update and you sign in to a profile with DLC Vehicles, they will be reset to Miami's Mustang! You do not have to sell your vehicles though. We will release a workaround when we release the DLC Update. Weather: Behind the scenes, a lot of testing and trials have taken place to test out new Weather code for the Server. Whilst there has been improvement, this is still a while away from completion and may take time. Once finished, we hope to tinker with the timings to allow players to unlock the photo achievements whilst online. In the meantime, if you really want to unlock the photographer awards, please launch TDU2 offline for the best results. Stats: Player Stats including Leaderboards is currently undergoing a complete rewrite. The original code simply wasn’t working as expected, and considering stats covers almost every single function in the game, this is a large task to complete. Due to the complexity around Stats, we cannot promise this will come soon. Other Features: Clubs, Casino, and the Community/Official Racing Centers are continually being worked on, features such as MyTDULife (Photos), News, and other smaller but equally important features are also being worked on in stages, however these are all a long way from completion. Over time we hope to continue getting all these features working and will be posting more updates soon. The TDU World Mod Pack for TDU2: Yes it's still being worked on! In order to bring the community the absolute best we can, some of the Server Development Team Members and our Mod Pack Team have been working to produce brand new and exclusive tools for TDU2 with the aim of achieving complete control over the game’s content. We're pleased to announce that we will be releasing further news regarding the initial release of the Mod Pack within the next 2 months. (And yes we mean within 2 months, We're confident as a team that this goal can be achieved!) For now, here’s what you can expect in the first TDU World Mod Pack release: Approximately 30 vehicles including officially unreleased, and a handful of vehicles chosen by the TDU World Team Misc bug fixes TDU World Launcher with TexMod support + lots of bug fixes and improvements The Mod Pack will be updated on a regular basis to include more content including: More vehicles: Themed Packs will be released on a timely basis. Improved Physics: General world physics and a complete rework of all current and future vehicles. Unreleased Content: This isn’t a promise, but the more we’re tearing apart the game, the more we’re seeing the Auction Center and new buildings such as Night Clubs being a possibility. Over time as our tools improve we will see what we can do about potentially releasing these features depending on how much work they need to finish. Alongside this awesome news, we've got some upcoming features for the TDU World Launcher: We’ve gone back to the drawing board with the TDU World Launcher and it has undergone a major transformation. The next release of the TDU World Launcher will provide: Better loading, no more “UpLauncher” errors! Better support for Offline Play Improved NAT/Port Forwarding detection A working Server Status indicator TexMod Support New and improved updater for the Launcher, Base Game and the Mod Pack The new TDU World Launcher will make its debut alongside the Mod Pack, of which the release date will be confirmed within the next 8 weeks. Finally, We'd like to thank our Patrons, new and old for supporting us with your donations. We're extremely thankful there's still so many dedicated fans to the TDU Franchise and cannot wait to bring the TDU World Community more content as tome goes by. Our promise to all patrons is to continue providing more early access news releases as a way of saying thanks, and as always you will receive merchandise if you're a Super or Ultra Fan. If you're not already a patron and would like to see more details, please follow the link below: https://www.patreon.com/OfficialTDUWorld
  4. Parts of Unofficial Patch will make their way to the TDU World ModPack, though it will be heavily modified in line with our plans.
  5. Hi, This was fixed in a patch that went out March 2021 alongside several Profile related fixes.
  6. Official Stance: Read our rules! We do not allow any other modifications, cheats and such on TDU World besides our planned TDU World Mod Pack. Anyone found cheating money, vehicle stats, garage vehicles, DLC etc will be subject to a ban.
  7. It's not yet confirmed if this is a bug or a patched out feature. Please keep an eye on the news and Discord posts for any updates regarding bugs/functionality updates.
  8. Whilst it's possible to reuse an existing (atari) profile on TDU World, we strongly suggest not doing so because there's an extremely high possibility your saves will corrupt. If you're absolutely sure you wish to do so, as above, you just sign up using the exact same name you did for your Atari Account, and then log into the old save with your new login details.
  9. I don't always check my TurboDuck Account. If you have Discord dm me xXBeefyDjXx#2383 We are fully GDPR compliant in the sense that should you wish to have all details removed, it can and is done when requested. Just because you as a user can't do it in a one click approach doesn't mean we aren't compliant. Most companies make you fill out forms to do such a thing.

  12. TDU World have good faith that Nacon (The developers behind TDU Solar Crown) will deliver in due course. They have their final WRC game to get out the door first and a fairly large task on their hands delivering something the community would be happy with. Remember this is the first time a developer other than Eden Games (RIP) have worked on a TDU game and Nacon are well known for delivering some quality games with the community in mind.
  13. Hi, The way that TDU2's Online Multiplayer services work are Peer to Peer for Free Roam, Hosting Custom and Matchmade lobbies etc, however they require a main "Proxy" server that connects them together, much like GTA V does. Things like Leaderboards, In Game News etc also require a hosted server. TDU World will NEVER require users to pay a subscription/monthly fee to use the Multiplayer Servers once they are up and running, however we'd appreciate it very much if anyone wanted to buy us a coffee or contribute to the running costs. This will of course be discussed in further detail before we go live, so expect more news closer to launch. :)
  14. Hi everyone, As part of the "TDU World Multiplayer Mod Pack" I am hoping to introduce either replacement Radio Stations with specific genres, or to update the existing set of stations to improve the game. What music or new stations (if possible) would you like to see in game? If someone's already posted a track or genre, please give it a thumbs up, the most popular ones may well make it to the final release of the Mod Pack! (For Legal Reasons, We can only implement songs that are copyright/royalty free, Think "No Copyright Sounds" and the likes on YouTube!)
