Common SCS Forum Abbreviations

#1 Post by supersobes » 08 Jul 2019 20:45

There are some abbreviations that are frequently used on this forum that aren't so common outside of the SCS community, and some people may not know what they mean. That is why I decided to make this reference thread. If you have any additional abbreviations that you think should be added to the list, feel free to add a reply to this thread.

Common SCS Forum Abbreviations:
  • ATS = American Truck Simulator
  • BtBS = Beyond the Baltic Sea
  • CB = 1. Closed Beta 2. Citizens Band Radio
  • CoE = Cabover Engine
  • DEF = Diesel Exhaust Fluid (this is the North American name for AdBlue)
  • DLC = Downloadable Content
  • DOT = Department of Transportation
  • DPF = Diesel Particulate Filter
  • EB = Experimental Beta
  • ETS = Euro Truck Simulator
  • ETS2 = Euro Truck Simulator 2
  • FOV = Field of View
  • GVW = Gross Vehicle Weight
  • IIRC = If I Recall Correctly
  • IMO = In My Opinion
  • IMHO = In My Honest Opinion
  • IRL = In Real-Life

  • O/O = Owner/Operator
  • OP = Original Poster
  • OT = Off Topic
  • PB = Public Beta (Same as Open Beta)
  • QA = Quality Assurance
  • REL = Released
  • RMD = Rocky Mountain Double
  • RttBS = Road to the Black Sea
  • SCS = Šebor Český Šebor (they are the 3 founders of SCS Software)
  • STAA = Surface Transportation Assistance Act
  • STDS = Scania Truck Driving Simulator
  • TBA = To Be Announced
  • TBD = To Be Decided
  • TL;DR = Too Long; Didn't Read
  • TPD = Turnpike Double
  • VLF = Vive la France
  • VTC = Virtual Trucking Company
  • WIP = Work in Progress
  • WoT/WoTr = World of Trucks
  • XING = Crossing
  • YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary

Scania trucks are the best, but the Peterbilts are good too.
Road signs are just as important as the road itself.

Nice idea. Please don't mind if I reject a few items of this list.

LB maybe used by a small minority of people of this forum, but is not a "Common SCS Forum Abbreviation". No way.

I have no clue how often US truckers use "RMD" for "Rocky Mountain Double", but this is not "forum slang". Same for "XING". Using such terms will result in confusion and nothing else. Let's hope most European forum members understand "XMAS".

I have used "STDS " myself for some years. Because it was so obvious. Until I heard somebody giggle, when he read it. So I asked Google, which let me stumble over links like "What Are STDs? | Sexually Transmitted Diseases Information".

The Suggestions from MattoCross and Deemer were added. I did not add New Mexico to the list because I'm not adding state or country abbreviations since there are so many of them.

@Reinhard While LB, RMD, and XING are not common forum abbreviations, they are used here by many people, and I've also seen many people ask what they mean, so I included those in the list. I've also seen meany people refer to Scania Truck Diving Simulator as "STDS," so it was added to the list too. The entire point of this list is to take the confusion out of abbreviations that people use. ;)
