Look I know I'm a little overweight. But that doesn't mean you can call me big, I mean jeez.

SCS is well aware a lot of people play this game only to play in TMP. So, despite any opinion we could have to it, that's something we should acknowledge the amount of push that TMP has done to SCS success.
And about the Truckers FM, nice to see how such kind of projects grow around video games. I would say it's impressive what they have become in only 5 years.
I would disagree and say that Road to the Black Sea was the worst (at release), especially Romania. Multiple important roads are missing, multiple important cities are missing, and the signage is still not fixed even though I reported multiple errors nearly a year ago. And I really fear that a December release for Iberia would result in it having the same problems.flight50 wrote: ↑16 Oct 2020 16:13Oregon was the worse released dlc I've experienced to date. Thankfully that was now 2 years ago. NM came first and even it was much better as ATS's first paid dlc. I really think Oregon was bad because of all the new people at the time. That is when SCS was transitioning to working 2 maps simultaneously for ATS. If Iberia is in the state of Oregon's day one release, they will catch h-e...double hockey sticks. It will always be better to release an ironed out dlc so pushing it regards of fans attitude is always the correct call. At the same time, we don't know where they are and they won't release that info until late November or early December at the last minute. Once the first week of Dec gets here and no word for the 2nd or even 3rd week of December, then it gets pushed. If the TBA doesn't get updated on Steam, then it will be clear.
The absolute last week they can release Iberia is Mon or Tues the 3rd week of December imo. Give them W-F to fix major bugss as that is the last week SCS is in office and that is also the Xmas stream. They might even have to get 2-3 to monitor Iberia the following week from home. This is worse case though. At best, week 1 or 2 of December. The xmas event is also in play for both games so its a tight schedule regardless. Once ATS's Fall/Winter map is pushed out the door, all focus goes to ETS2 as always. It takes the whole company to jump in and test and bug search but each year, for past 3 years, the devs have made it happen. I don't see them not trying to make this happen. I won't be easy but its not impossible. They added more help since covid surprising so that is a good sign for manpower. Lets ignore that. Everyone can test but not everyone is great at it.
But I am sure he devs want to end the year on a good note and to start the next without stress. The saying is, it ain't over til the fat lady sings so in my book, its not off the menu until SCS says it is.
