Nothing it couldn't be added later on a small rework. We have been driving for years on a collapsed bridge IRL until past event.

jackalnxt, I have been close to change my vote from Western Balkans to more of Scandiavia, more than a few times.
Road to Moscow, is a possibility too, after Iberia.
We'll have to see what comes next.
Ukraine, that I think might take a while before it gets released.
NTM's B-Double Telescopic Skeletal Container Carrier. Youtube video on how it works. W & S thread.
B-Double trailer and short modes: EN 7.82 swap body, 20’ or 30’ containers.
Standalone 40' mode: EN 7.82 swap body, 20', 30', 40' or 2 x 20' trailer.

I actually changed my vote from Western Balkans to Further East, Belarus, Moldova and Western Ukraine (Chernihiv, Kyiv, Odessa and everything west of theirs)!

I would love to see more Scandinavia expand right up to the border of Finland thus connecting Scandinavia DLC to Beyond the Baltic Sea DLC by Road

I am definitely on board for further East. It sets up road to Moscow. I am not sure if its easier for ETS2 to stop getting such large map expansions to perhaps get two smaller maps a year like ATS. Or if its just customary to keep doing bundled large dlc's. Baltics was pretty big. Then came Balkans and it was the largest content pack dlc. Now Iberia will take those reigns. These large maps takes a ton of time and the size has been getting larger and larger. Now Iberia is perhaps in jeopardy of a release this year just like Colorado. The current world issues may have cause a slight delay in progress for our standard Winter map releases. I really wonder if the devs have considered down sizing for the future. Perhaps like Belarus and Ireland. Or even breaking up the West Balkans into two and Ireland.

Well @flight50, Balkans wasn't the biggest DLC (by road length, the better comparison possible we have). That's maybe the reason some people from that zone missed roads that are reported to be important part of the road network (truck wise). It's simply that RttBS has less road content so it's "easier" that something was left out. But the detail level was a lot higher than previous DLC, and I suppose that consumed a lot of manpower even if less roads kilometers were depicted.

If Iberia keeps the detail level (it seems so, so far, and it would be strange for SCS to step back) and if it has even the GE road density (and we could expect more, almost sure), it would be by far the biggest DLC. I don't think they pretend to repeat often releases of that size. It's just that the European geography doesn't give them so much room to do it different. Probably Texas in ATS will be the only other so big in a looong time; and even so, they would had not to deal with 16+ "countries" in a single shot as they are doing now. I don't think that's something they would like to repeat often. :mrgreen:

I am going by what SCS said. SCS is the ones that said the Balkans was their largest dlc to date. Its not about the roads km, it about the total amount of content in the dlc across the board. Meaning roads, mapped cities, unmapped cities, assets, props, vegetation, etc.

Downsizing is a good idea, releasing two dlcs per year is also welcome, at least that's something they could do with the Western Balkans and possibly Ireland, Iceland.

But atleast two dlcs definitely need a year time.
*Ukraine. It's large, almost the size of Texas, so grouping Belarus and Moldova along with it might not be the best idea. Ukraine and Moldova together is possible, which leaves Belarus to the semi-annual dlc club.
*Rest of Finland and Scandinavia.

Once the above mentioned locations are done, they could move to Russia and maybe Turkey.
Paint everything black! :idea:

Gesh. I guess I didn't realize how large Texas was. For some reason, I always looked at Ukraine as ginormous. But I just overlaid Texas on it and its not as big as I thought. https://thetruesize.com/#?borders=1~!MT ... NjkzNzU)MA. Most people always compare Texas and France. Texas over all is larger but France is still more compact. There are roads everywhere.

So yeah, Ukraine and Moldova could come together. Belarus would give Going East something new so I'd rather see it first. At least Romania is new off the see. Ukraine could wait a bit longer. Belarus add more space to the Baltic region. So Belarus and more of Russia would be cool.
