ETS2 v1.18.x Satellite Map Backgrounds

#1 Post by Elmer BeFuddled » 22 Mar 2015 07:58

Working along the same lines as my ProModz v1.90 Colour Maps mod, I decided to make them suitable for the default game maps, with or without the Going East DLC.

NOW UPDATED TO INCLUDE THE NEW SCANDINAVIA DLC COUNTRIES! And at the same time better quality (no dds compression) images have been used.

Download: ETS2 1.18.x Satellite Map.

This is an independent alternative to the ProMods colour map mod. It contains the required background images plus the pale blue undiscovered city and a brighter green selected city markers for the job market maps. Road colours and City names are dependant on the game_data.sii file which is NOT included here.

Use whichever one for the game map you are currently using.

Note that you may possibly have to rename the mod (by adding more 'zeds' at the start??) depending on what other mods you are using.

Enjoy!! Elmer.

Thank you! This is great!

Could you make an alternative version with country colors, not geographic colors? I mean some like this. Or maybe this one :)

I really like this, but the one problem I have with it, is being an old codger with dodgy eyesight, I can't see the cities that haven't been explored yet properly. :(

Also, just wondering what the zero byte file called 75.! does as there doesn't seem to be an equivalent file in the SCS base folder... is this part of the map data? :?
This is my global apology to everyone I have probably offended at some point. Sorry for being an ass, no personal offence is ever intended. :oops:

No! Its my overlay transparency memory aid that I forgot to delete. :oops: I think I've done the same in the promods map as well now I think about it. :oops:
I'm trying to locate where the info is stored that dictates the undiscovered/discovered city 'blobs' colours. But I'll admit I haven't really looked to hard.

I need an aide memoire to remind me to delete my memory aid. :lol: :lol: :lol:

@ D4NTRUCK Its just the map background. The game_data.sii file dictates what colours are used for roads, city names etc. etc..

It might not be the colour that is the problem, it might be because of how the game displays the map. I get the impression that the unexplored blobs are drawn under the map perhaps, and normally, there is no data there to cover them. Or if they are drawn over the map, they might be drawn with a low transparency value.

I'll try and grab some reference screens and create holes in the map images where the blobs usually are, that should let them show through.

I had a recent discussion with davidzoli who wanted a map that looked something like this but wanted it to look like a glove-box or fold-up map, so I came up with this, including the dirty fold lines:

(click for larger image)

Which looks like this in-game:

Included in this mod are the background images, and for the job market map(s) a brighter green "selected city" marker and pale blue "undiscovered city" markers. ROAD COLOURS ARE DEPENDENT ON YOUR GAME_DATA.SII FILE WHICH IS NOT INCLUDED HERE.

Download thread: Road Atlas ETS2.

Enjoy! Elmer
