Good morning.
... if the map of Portugal in the Iberia DLC ,is on Highway A4, it is important to highlight the Marão tunnel (portuguese -Túnel do Marão).
This is the largest tunnel in Portugal.

A4 - TÚNEL DO MARÃO. 5.625 meters in length.

Note: this video is not recommended for people who may have epilepsy because the light with the truck shifting performs a flashing effect the light on the tunnel roof.

Portugal's marble is very famous all over the world And it is one of the great products that the country has and which is also exported and also widely used in the domestic market, following an institutional video of a company that extracts Portuguese marbles. Extracted marbles like: Estremoz Branco, Picasso, Amadeus and Rosa Aurora.
Company: http://www.galrao.com/
Quarry Estremoz ED - It extracts 2 types of marbles that are very popular in Portugal and internationally, Extremoz white marble and Picasso. The Quarry has a production capacity of 3,000 cubic meters of marble per year:

In Portugal there are two areas that are in the process of having their lithium mineral extraction permits.
  And they would be the largest lithium mines in Europe, and the first in Europe. Specific mines exist and lithium mining planning is due to start in 2020 for Covas do Barroso, in Boticas (Vila Real district), and the other mine should be functional in Romano, located in Montalegre (also in the district of Vila Real)
  Currently, lithium is extracted in Portugal "in association with quartz and feldspar and is only used in the melting process of ceramic pastes, to lower the melting point, thereby reducing energy consumption," said one authority recently.
This secondary lithium exploration situation takes place in mines such as Alvarrões, in Guarda, Formigoso, Porto Vieiro and Seixalvo, in Ponte de Lima (Braga), and Gondiães and Lousas, in Boticas. Exploration sites for the main minerals quartz and feldspar.
Reserch: https://portugaldigital.com.br/governo- ... -de-litio/
The lithium zone in Portugal is being concentrated in the north and center, especially in the territory where granites abound.

They are the largest underground mines in the world of the tungsten mineral, with more than 12 thousand km of tunnels, and more than 200 meters deep.

Rock salt:
The mixture of rock salt with calcium chloride is widely used to combat ice and snow on the roads of cold countries. In Portugal it is used mainly in the districts: Guarda, Vila Real, Bragança and Viseu. The only rock salt extraction sites in Portugal are located in the mines of: Loulé and Rio Maior.

In this video you can see a little of the work of salt extraction in the saltworks by workers of the cooperative and also much of the products produced by the cooperative among these products stands out in the video bags of large size and weight of salt that could also be truck loads, many other types of salt products that could be descending placed as cargo since this is one of the salt producing places in Portugal.
And it is very interesting because it is a little more artisanal production so it shows this Saline at the same time and is very important in history of Portugal and has been active since 1177 producing and selling selling salt throughout Portugal.

Aamazing... how certain things we can find by searching on Street View there is precisely an image of a semi trailer truck probably loaded with salt on the spot and will be distributed somewhere in Portugal >>>

Good evening.Today 08/05 2020.
  We will be able to talk a little about marbles which is one of the most abundant mineral resources in Portugal.
One of the areas with the highest occurrence of quarrying in Portugal is in the city of Fátima and its region and below some of these companies that operate in that region and have production and marketing capacity for Portugal and the foreign market international nations.

1. Airemarmores company Marble. city: Porto de Mós
Site: https://www.airemarmores.com/pt/empresa ... a-santarem
1.1 limestone rock.
1.2 marble rock.

This company stands out with two quarries it is located near Fátima city.

1.3 Quarry - Serro Ventoso - Marble.
Quarry localized in - Serro Ventoso (village).

2. Filstone - Marbles - City: Fátima.
Site: https://filstone.com/pt/quem-somos
Others products: https://filstone.com/pt/industrial
The main by-product of the quarries are gravel and aggregates that can be used for several other purposes:
civil construction, public works, cement, lime, ceramic pastes, mortars, cellulose, glass industry, compound animal feed, PVC, rubber, pharmaceutical industry, decoration of gardens and leisure areas and in drainage and filtration systems.
2.1 Quarry - localized in Casal Farto (village).

3.Other very iconic marble quarries in Portugal. City: Borba (and its Villages).

Good morning 00: 11 day 10 of the five of 2020.

  To continue commenting a little more on the mining of marble and granite, we also need to talk about the machines that exist in this type of activity.
For this we have to differentiate 3 types of sites: Quarries, Processing plants, Factories.

Quarries: These are the places where large blocks of marble or granite are extracted.
  Quarries in general do not have machining equipment for processing many types of other by-products.
  Some machines can make it possible for the Quarries to make a primary improvement of the marble and granite blocks, before being taken to the beneficiation plants or the beneficiation factories.

Fravizel SA. Nation: Portugal. City: Alcanede
Stone Block-Bench Pusher.
Localization factory: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Fravi ... -8.8421739
Several other types of equipment this company manufactures for the marble and granite industry and quarries in general can be found in this direction: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3_LHS ... MM4zBhqbMg
Exemples: Container Grab, Tracked Drilling Machine, Tracked Down the Hole (DTH) Machine.
Container Block Loader

https://www.google.com/maps/@41.6996793 ... 384!8i8192

Processing plants: the beneficiation plants may be located in some quarries, or in their own business environment, and even close to the processing plant.
  The combinations are diverse for this set, which we call the plant. The purpose of the plant is to generate different types of sub products in mining.

Factory: The purpose of the factory in mining is to process marble and granite to produce products with higher added value or more noble products, and with higher market value. Marble and granite factories, produce various types of internal and external coatings for civil construction; with various applications, for residential buildings, public buildings, and private business buildings. Others in the very important sales market for which marble and granite are in demand are funeral agencies in use for funeral coverings, high-value residential and business furniture industry. Many marble and granite factories also develop their own furniture creations out of marble and granite for sales to residential and office furniture stores.

1. Pedrini Spa. Italy. City: Carobbio degli Angeli.

So, I saw yesterday's blog about SCS researching Colorado landscapes and I thought I could suggest some landscapes. This is the first one - if you do the A23 - you should include the beautiful views near Fátima!

Your map concept is very good, only one city missing that is important in Portugal is Bragança don't forget Bragança;

The city of Beja or the city of Serpa in Baixo Alentejo as well. It could be added ok the two cities are very industrialized it would be really cool because it is on the route below Évora.

This way we would have the top 10 playable cities on the map of Portugal It would be very good it would be an exceptional map it would take a city from each Portuguese region in a significant way Where's the very good map with 10 main cities.

If SCS decides to include Beja and the IP8, I think it's better to include the A26 rather than the IP8. The A26 isn't open yet but should open this month or next.


Because the A26 isn't yet on street view, you can check it in this video (altrough this video starts on the Beja side - https://www.google.pt/maps/@38.1037755, ... 312!8i6656):

This post seeks to start a reference on the cultivation and transport of cork in Portugal.
First you can find here on this link information regarding the ecosystem that in Portugal, is known by the Portuguese word called "Montado (in a basic and rudimentary translation:"assembled".and its concept in the Portuguese language, and in simple translation it means: it is a man-made ecosystem,with tree species chosen with very specific objectives in terms of forestry) and its respective the English word is "Dehesa". Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehesa our https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montado

Montado do Freixo do Meio. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl9kjAxhHPM

This is an example of a farm that in Portuguese Portuguese is called "Heralde".
The farm is classified in the agricultural category dedicated to "montado". It means that the main economic production is the extraction of cork.
The geographic location of Heralde (Fazenda) is located close to the Portuguese city of Setúbal (which will most likely be on the Iberia DLC).
  So it could be one of the farms, for the map of Portugal and the main product loads of: cork for the Portuguese industry.
Map: https://www.google.com.br/maps/place/Mo ... !4d-8.3261

Portuguese television special report on cork, extracted from "sombrero" trees. The title of the report is: "golden shell".
--- Whistler Tree ---
The oldest tree"sombrero" in the world was planted in the city of Águas de Moura, in the municipality of palmela., is a tourist and historical attraction. (Video 0:44 - 1:25)
The cork oak was planted in 1783, is over 14 meters high and the trunk perimeter is 4.15 meters. Its name derives from the noise produced by the countless songbirds that shelter among its branches. Since 1820, it has been harvested more than twenty times. The 1991 harvest produced 1,200 kg of cork, more than most cork oak trees produce in their lifetime. This unique harvest produced more than one hundred thousand corks.
Link: https://www.google.com.br/maps/place/So ... -8.6909929

The area formed by "montados" for the world production of cork, totals approximately 2.3 million hectares of cork , distributed between Portugal, Spain,Italy, France and the countries of North Africa (notably the "Maghreb" region, formed by: Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia). About 730,000 hectares are located in Portugal, which represents 22.5% of the national forest area. Half of the world's cork production is Portuguese. The sombrero tree is native to the Iberian Peninsula.

The world production of cork is approximately 340.000 tons per year, 55% of which are from Portugal. Each ton of thick cork boards can make an average of 66.700 corks. Currently, 12 billion cork stoppers are produced in the world each year, which is equivalent to 15 times the round in the largest circumference of the earth (ECUADOR line).

the video already opens showing a beautiful "montado" ( Forest cork extraction).(Video 1:26 - 2:20).
The video then begins to show a little about what a cork processing plant looks like, in the factory many other types of products are generated; notably the production of corks, for wine bottles, and bottles of sparkling wine (the most famous of which is "champagne"). We can see what the outside looks like in a cork processing plant. (Video 2:21 - 2:50).

About 9.000 people depend on the cork production chain in Portugal, and the income of workers in this production chain and above the Portuguese average income.
The largest cork stopper factory produces approximately 4.2 billion stoppers per year. The largest producer of cork stoppers in the world is located in Portugal its trade name is "Amorim Cork". Amorin Cork Company: https://www.amorimcork.com/en/

The cork industry is not limited to the production of wine and sparkling wine stoppers. It covers many other varied products, aimed at the civil construction industry, it achieves the total sustainability of industrial production related to cork. The civil construction industry in Portugal reuses 100% of the waste from the main cork industry (which is the dedication to producing stoppers). The construction industry with this raw material makes the manufacture of cork floors and roofs!

The largest portuguese company in the civil construction sector that produces tiles and tiles in Curitiba is the company known for; "GRANORTE" (Site: http://www.granorte.pt/en/). So through this link SCS Software, you can have access to civil construction products, and access to other types of products also produced by this cork waste processing industry.

The first virgin bark is removed at age 25 and was sold for around 7 euros for every 15 kg (1 at) in 2010.
Some producers managed to evolve the forestry activity with the first extraction of cork at the age of 12, from the cork oak with a more intensive management of the trees (this can be seen in the video: 11:35).

Some cork producers are evolving further, managing to obtain the first extraction at the age of 8 for the sombrero tree. In one of these farms, around 400 trees had their first extraction of cork bark at age 8, instead of the usual 25. This forest revolution is made possible by drip irrigation.

The forestry activity for cork has 2 forestry production systems, namely: "Montado" ("mounted" - traditional agro system, "extensive"), "sobreiral ("cork oak" - modern agro system, "intensive", more density tree) .

The forestry activity of cork is a great Portuguese national wealth, in addition to cork and its industrial derived products, it is an important ecological factor in the country, where this forest ecosystem is a refuge for more than 200 species of animals and plants native to the country. And it is also a major tourist attraction factor for Portugal, as it brings together: history, work, nature, and many other curiosities about industrial production. Other elements are also added to tourism related to cork, for example; Portuguese cuisine (regional peculiarities of the Alentejo and Algarve region) make it a good tourist product.
Attracting tourists from all over the world, but especially from: United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

In addition, cork production generates an international economy on which 100,000 people depend in southern Europe and North Africa on the production chain directly, including forestry farmers, truck drivers, factory workers, wine and sparkling wine producers, wine factory workers and sparkling wines, rural wine workers, among others.
