ETS2 fanmade concept map (WIP) (November 2021 update)

#1 Post by IvanKuz » 16 Nov 2020 23:07

Hi everyone! I'd like to finally share something that I have been slowly working on on-and-off for quite a while now :)
This project was heavily inspired by ads678's excellent ATS concept map, but focuses on ETS2 instead, and has a more idealistic, wishful nature.

Last updated: 20 November 2021, see changelog below.

Please keep in mind that:
  • This is a work in progress. Work on Benelux, the UK, Slovakia, Greece, Turkey, etc., etc. is planned! It will just take some time. I have a job and way too many other hobbies, so I can't afford to spend a lot of time on this project.
  • I aim for realism in terms of map scale. If some road or city is missing, it's probably because there was no space to depict it in a satisfactory way.
  • Because apparently some people don't realize this: this is just a series of images. Not an actual map mod that you can download and drive on :lol:
Bonus stuff:
E81 Sibiu - Pitești draft
Germany Rhine-Ruhr area rework draft

Note: the names of cities in Belarus are written in accordance with the official transliteration rules. I'm not sure if it was the right choice to use them in this context though, because this spelling differs from English and can get rather confusing. For example, "Polack" should really be pronounced "Polatsk" or "Polotsk", and is spelled so on most maps.

Nice job! I would like to see cities in Poland like Radom, Kielce, Bydgoszcz, Toruń, Zielona Góra, Suwałki, Koszalin, Opole, and of course remodeled road grid of Poland because it's very outdated (there is much more highways and expressways now) ;)

Thank you :)

I've only started with Poland, I'd like to do more. However, I deliberately excluded Suwałki because I couldn't fit it in a satisfactory way. I know ProMods has both it and Augustow, and they did a great job, but that whole area felt a bit to crammed to me, so I had to sacrifice it.

Stunning map. Makes me want a "beyond the arctic circle" DLC even more, since the current Scandinavia DLC isn't even half of what it should be :roll:

Well done! I would also recommend checking out my concept map in my signature, maybe that can give you some more ideas... ;-)
The Moscow area and the Baltics are probably a bit too dense, though.

The concept of the map is bad. Where is the Western Balkans, Greece!

Everything will be okay in the end, and if it`s not okay, it`s not the end.
