Viaducto de Montabliz

#381 Post by Louis trucker 33 » 27 Oct 2020 14:40

The viaduct is part of the A-67 motorway, is located between the municipalities of Bárcena de Pie de Concha and Molledo in the Autonomous Community of Cantabria.


This structure is 721 metres long and rises up to 145 metres above the river Bisueña.
It not only holds the record for the highest bridge, but also for the widest in Spain.

Almería tips

#382 Post by Esproquet » 27 Oct 2020 17:32

Since you're including Almería, you can always give Almerians a reason to feel proud of their already lovely city by including any reference to ÍNDALO. It's okay to have a small índalo painted in your business or house gate to attract success and good luck, traditions :D

Another thing typical from Almería is Beach Volley (Voley Playa in Spanish), there's always tournaments and sometimes they set a temporary stadium in Zapillo Beach (playa del Zapillo).

Almerians are very proud of their filming locations and studios in Tarbernas desert as well as their beaches, Cabo de Gata-Níjar holds a wonderful coast.

Good morning, today I would like to help with a research about a company that produces 80% black olives and 20% green olives.
Black olives are basically intended for salads and pizzas.
"Last year we received a million and a half kilos in the campaign and throughout the year we bought another half million," says the manager, who recalls that almost all of his purchases are made in the north of Cáceres, in the regions of Las Hurdes and Sierra de Gata, both for companies and for cooperatives.
quote available at: ... o%2F201609 % 2F07% 2Faceituna-negra-cacerena-para-20160907001659-v.html
Other very important information to understand the olive industry is found in this Spanish language newspaper article.

Black olives are mainly intended for exports.
Export destinations, black olives: United States, Canada, Mexico. Europe: United Kingdom, France, Italy, Africa, Arab countries in North Africa and perhaps countries in the Middle East. Its main market is Italy and France.

Only 20% of olives are green and destined for the domestic market in Spain.
The company needs to buy the following inputs for its production:
chemical industry: sodium hydroxide (soda), ferrous gluconate.
Plastics Industry: packaging.
Metal industry: metal containers
wood industry: pallets

DGT Vans Used by Local Police

#385 Post by Esproquet » 31 Oct 2020 18:52

I'm not sure if it's posted before (I searched the thread but found no posts related to it).

DGT van
As we all know already, DGT is the nation-wide organisation that manages roads, their traffic standards and safety. As far as I managed to read, they have a number of vans that are lent to different local police all over the country to watch over traffic, they're equipped with a radar and can run alcohol tests. These pictures are taken from newspapers from different parts of the territory, I've seen them from time to time stopped at certain dangerous places in my city as well.

Bottomline: there are thousands of different local police in Spain, they have different patrols and uniforms, but they can share these vehicules. You can even see these vehicules on Autovías as well (probably being driven by Guardia Civil agents). I think it's safe to add these to the game as another asset to police forces. They even have regular white vans with no letters or vynils, but with radars. They don't actually fine, there's always a patrol next to do the dirty job.

The most common vehicle is a FIAT SCUDO, but you can find FIAT Ulysse, Lancias and Peugeots as well (rare).

DGT vynils & car stickers

#386 Post by Esproquet » 01 Nov 2020 08:41

I forgot to add these

Hi-res DGT logo:

Actual font used (notice that GENERAL is shortened by GRAL.) in cars:

Private cars DGT environmental stickers (under revision), these are placed on the bottom right of the windshield:

Private cars DGT ITV sticker (periodic inspection):
This one says GA because it's from GALICIA, every autonomous community stamps its logo on it... too small to even care about it, it would be cool to have the rectangle even if it's empty though (plain green, yellow or red).

These stickers can have 3 colours (green, yellow and red alternatively) depending on the year of validity: 2019 is green, 2020 is yellow, 2021 is red.

Location of the stickers: ... queta-itv/

The top left sticker is for shared vehicles (VAO: vehículo de alta ocupación) to use preferent lanes in high traffic congestion cities.

Edit: stickers are something not every car has, ITV is for 4 year old private vehicles, trucks need to be just 2 years old.
Enviromental stickers are optional as of today.
High occupancy sticker is something rare outside big cities like Madrid or Barcelona.

Road Maintenance Vehicles: CONSERVACIÓN

#388 Post by Esproquet » 17 Nov 2020 15:14

I know it's probably really late in terms of map development, but this detail is not really complicated, I haven't seen it in this thread so apologies if somebody already posted something about this.

Any vehicle working on road maintenance (removing roadkills, trimming the median vegetation, cleaning or repairing rails and signals) should have visible the word CONSERVACIÓN.

These vehicles are different for every region and their designs may vary, but there's a national design belonging to the Ministry of Transport

This Spanish city is very important because it borders Gibraltar. If SCS Software resolves, at some point make Gibraltar playable. You will necessarily have to have this city and avenue (border and waterfront sea ) and highways presented in the video. Exactly the route that truckers take to enter and leave the territory of Gibraltar. Note that the moment of time is Twilight: the night is slowly falling, it is the transition phase from day to night, very beautiful scenes on the Spanish border to the south. Scientific information about the Twilight period in this Spanish city, can be obtained at the link:

A little bit of music, on this posting Sunday. The video for curiosity the great singer of flamenco music from Andalusia, Spain.
Que Poderio Tendra - José Monge Cruz (Flamenco)

I believe that now many people have understood why the Monument the singer appears sitting on the chair: it is one of the most iconic images of the singer's career.

This Spanish singer was one of those responsible for making Flamenco known worldwide, as one of the most important musical genres in Spanish music. He took the name of the region of Andalusia to the world and performed several shows in many countries in the world and also in several IBERIA cities.


4:04 Roundabout of Trees ... 312!8i6656

7:16 Reducing the speed to 0.25 it is possible to observe in the video time.

The signs that now compose this roundabout and that bear, the name of the city: "La Línea de la Concepción".
Contrary to what many may think, this is now the city's official entrance.
Why many people might think that the official entrance to the city would be via the A-383 highway. Although it is a beautiful and scenic highway, and also its connections with the city's coastal avenues. For historical reasons, the official entrance to the city is via the CA-34 highway.


Main roundabout - official entrance to the city.

During 2019, an update was carried out at the roundabout. Where the name of the city now appears in metallic chrome letters.

The image shows the stream, bridge, beach, sea, building, and also the Rock of Gibraltar.

The suggestion for this location:
A camera moves system to capture the truck or movement of vehicles, passing through the location. The camera makes the movement in which it captures the Rock and the truck at the same time. The camera moves with the truck or vehicle until it crosses the bridge.

7:47 Acess Cernaval Group Shipyards
One of Spain's major naval companies. "Cernaval Group Shipyards" It is a Shipyard has large ships. Perhaps it is very interesting for the players to leave loads in this place like: Steel sheets, products for welds, things that could be researched about the Naval industry of shipyards specialized in large ships.


1. Cernaval Shipyard - Málaga Port & Algeciras Port ( San Roque).
The video shows the company's two shipyards located in southern Spain, the shipyard in Malaga, and the shipyard in Algeciras (actually located in the small town of San Roque, which is nearby La Línea de la Concepción.
Video Cernaval:
00:00 - 01: 45 - Malaga, 01:53 - 04: 30 Algeciras ( San Roque).

Timing: The information contained. They allow a better knowledge of the geographic environment, and the company. Perhaps it will be last in creating the map in this region.

2. Cernaval Shipyard - Algeciras Port ( San Roque).
In this video; we can have new angles and perspectives on the space of the company's Shipyard.
Video Cernaval:


8:46 - 9:08 Station oil & Elefante Azul (car-wash)
It is a good gas station location for the ETS2 game map, for this area of the Spain map.
The symbol of the elephant is also quite iconic. I believe it is an element that would allow recognition by many players in the region on the map of Spain.


"Elefante Azul" (esp\ pt) (Traduction name: "Blue Elephant ")

Site company:
you tube: ... a0U3krp4ng

In the link below it is possible to do the research to find and locate the network of car wash franchisees that perform the vehicle cleaning service in the Iberian peninsula Europe and Morocco:

Spain: ... ante-azul/

Portugal: ... 71101,6.3z

France: ... 5634827,6z

Swiss: ... 5188,7.74z

Morroco: ... 8232158,5z

So this would be approximately the distribution of the franchises of this company predominating in the Spanish territory, found in different parts of France being, more concentrated in the south of France. In some parts of Portugal. And also distributed in Morocco along a great route from North to South that takes us Agadir where the route begins to cross the Sahara desert and reach Mauritania, crossing Western Sahara by road.

I find this marker quite interesting and unique on the way.
this set of simple home business outlets is quite beautiful, and also very different, especially the bakery! Your chimney absolutely incredible, in being different! The blue building next door is also a small shop like so many others that exist in this region of the highway, it is a beautiful attraction. ... 312!8i6656

Monument: Spanish Workers

With little more research we discovered that there is a second monument in honor of the "Spanish worker".
An exact replica of the monument in La Línea de la Concepción. The monument is located in the city of São Roque with a beautiful view of the sea and the Rock of Gibraltar in the background. It looks like photoshop, but it's real. Very beautiful. Unfortunately the place is not accessible for cars and trucks and is situated in a square close to the sea.

Monument to Spanish Workers in Gibraltar 2.
Localization: ... a=!3m1!1e3

Iconic landscape: Monument to Spanish Workers in Gibraltar 2.
Reference: ... ultura.jpg

But it is possible to do an event where the Truck Driver when parking the truck (even if temporary) in the parking in this image of Google Maps. As a trucker shown in the google maps image shows. Probably, exactly visiting the monument most likely to take pictures of the place.

Link: ... a=!3m1!1e3

The street view shows the entrance to the park where the trucker in the Google Maps satellite images ends up entering his truck. Temporary parking with the probable purpose of visiting the monument site.

Link: ... 312!8i6656

Then SCS Software could make this location one of those to be discovered. The result is a short video showing this monument "Spanish Worker" with the Rock of Gibraltar in the background. Nearby cargo area? They are diverse. View the nearby oil complex.

Link: ... a=!3m1!1e3


"Yacimiento Arqueológico Romano Carteia":
This could be another place to be discovered in the Euro Truck 2 game world, map of Spain. For that it would be necessary to do a photographic research on the ruins, and seek to have a layout of this ancient city. Then cross-check this information to perform 3D reconstitution of this environment, as it is today.

1. Ruins Carteia Video: Video:

2. Ruins Carteia. Video:

3. Carteia - Roman theater. Video:

Photo iconic : ... 24x768.jpg

The references below tell a little of the history (+ Photos) of this ancient Roman city called "Carteia" and that previously in the 7th century BC was founded as a Phoenician city.

Reference: ... que-romana

Reference: ... altar_7849

The discovery of this location can be another option of finding a place in ETS 2. The player parking the truck in the car park (for a temporary time) at the location at the link: ... a=!3m1!1e3

Coincidentally, it is the same parking area for the discovery of "Monument No. 2 in honor of Spanish workers", mentioned above.

Then the trucker player, in this place would have 2 options of interesting places to discover, while making his cargo trips through southern Spain and Gibraltar.

Basque Country Welcoming Boards - National Roads Network

#390 Post by Esproquet » 27 Nov 2020 17:44

I think these ones haven't been published here, welcoming signposts to Euskal Herria (Basque Country). According to Google there are quite a few of them, but the pictograms can be a bit dodgy, there's a bit of a quarrel between Basque Country actual government and the neighbouring region of Navarra, the former thinks the latter belong to them and have included reference to Navarra in their welcoming signposts, the others sued and they won the trial, remove all reference to them on the boards (but I'm not sure if it's totally happening).


In secondary roads, ONGI ETORRI (welcome)

Sometimes, when you leave urban territory or when you enter the beginning of a road controlled by the state, you may find this signpost indicating that you're ENTERING THE NATIONAL ROAD NETWORK.
