Load Order - ATS v1.40 Map Combos (Updated 15 may 2021 - Reforma)

Forum rules
SCS as a company do not wish to have paid mods on this forum. While we understand that not all paid mods use the Intellectual Property of other companies/people, it is very hard to moderate what is and isn't acceptable when money is involved. There are also concerns that it could look unfavorable to potential work partners going forward if SCS allow mods that may potentially use unlicensed branding.
Posting in the Mods forum (ATS and ETS2) is restricted to sharing free-to-the-public mods and providing support for mods. For more details, please check chapters [4] and [5] of Forum Rules.

@HagenXXV. Having a good loading order is very important, it avoids a lot of bugs that could arise, among other things, game crashes, broken roads, missing textures, names of cities that do not appear on the world map etc ...
And in my opinion, some mods can provide better game performance , more FPS. It always depends on the creator in question. Some modders are concerned with providing better game performance and will do whatever it takes to lighten their mod. They can use several methods. They use low poly textures and objects in far view and high poly as little as possible. Then they can use cutaways to cut things from a specific perspective, so they don't have to load. This is useful in cities with tall buildings or windy mountain roads. The player does not need to charge what he cannot see anyway. A good experienced modder will do these certain steps in his creation. When they do their creation, they use a very specific load order and always invite us to follow this load order. In addition, some mods need another mod to work well so that is why it is very important to listen to the advice of the modders in question.

Thanks for your reply, it is a great help since I have a low PC.

Where the arrow is on the map should be the city of Sterling and I don't know why it doesn't appear when I want to take a job. I have exactly the loading order no.2 Coast2coast and I would like to know if anyone else has this problem.Thank you.

I have that problem too... It might be caused by Midwest Expansion as that mod also has a city Sterling (in the state of Illinois). But I'm not sure if that's causing this problem.
Sterling CO is visible on the normal map, but not on the Job selection map.

After some testing in my test profile, with and without C2C and Midwest Expansion: it is caused by Midwest Expansion.

@sickrun, @Vinnie. Here's a tip that Steavage posted on discord about getting jobs for Sterling.

Steavage — today at 11:07
You cannot find a job in Sterling CO from the world map, but you can if you put "Sterling" in the search bar.

Jace will look at the problem shortly
