    The most important thing is the online multiplayer to be successful in the future. And then I go online and see the following participants:
    Turn1Crasher
    Ihatetrump
    grummel1992773
    Hans
    yAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy
    punisher1949
    super duper
    hifurrgldkidmspkxjb
    etc.

    If the problem is not resolved, you will completely lose touch. I don't want to race against names like that. It's time to grow up. I love AMS2 and the content and your hard work, but that's a joke.

    Regards, Flow

    Are you complaining about other drivers names? In multiplayer servers you find all kind of nicknames. That's the way it is in all games and I don't think game devs can do anything to prevent people from using names that may be unpleasant to other players.

    In most other Sims this is not a problem. Go back to sleep.

    You probably have zero experience in other sims. Otherwise wouldn't be here opening a thread to make such a bizarre request.

    Give people the opportunity to fill in their first name and surname and most of them will. But AMS2 takes the name from the Steam account. This is too little.

    Out of all the issues, this is what you find time to write about?
    It's like calling the police and saying I don't like the clothes my neighbour wears.
    Your right... This is a Joke!!

    You best click dislike because that's the most you can do!

    Even when you can give real names I still choose to show my nickname (looking at you ACC): Iam Shriukan ;)

    Welcome to the Internet. When given the choice, I pick my nickname.

    I'd stick my neck out and say most on forum would say much the same/similar thing as this, even with the WIP across the title.
    Its not a Reiza problem.

    Hahaha I admit these names ARE a joke. :D
    But if a game allows people to use nicknames you cannot try to force people to use nicknames you personally find reasonable.
    The example of Hans is a good example.;)
    Because you can probably find people from some obscure countries who even find Hans is a reasonable name.
    At least I guess so ;)

    Comming from iRacing years ago this problem didnt exist because people was forced to use the name printed on their Visa card.
    And I dont think its possible to create a Visa card with the name yAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy:p

    ByTheWay: The only problem I have with these childish names is that people dont use them consistently.
    I mean people use one nickname in this forum and then because they are soo afraid to be revealed as the slowest guy on the LBs they hide behind another nickname there.:p:p:p
    Talking about childish behaviour - hehe.

    who gives a ****
    an option for ppl who really want to put in their name would be good so they dont ahve to change their steam name to that, but other than that...

    i rarely look at other ppl's name while driving, i mainly look at the delta time the guy infront/behind has to me, who it is or what his name is doesnt bother me at all

    My name is Hansi McClutch for real, off course ;)
    But it is indeed a bit odd that the steam nick is the only option for a driver name.
    Albeit, in a Multiplayer Environment it makes sense. A lot of Games use Steam ID and name for online purposes, and changeable driver personality only for Single player.
