Malta pre-research tips.

#1 Post by natjer3 » 03 Apr 2019 19:22

Hi,
I am starting this topic to give suggestions in case Malta was considered to be added to the game. I will be writing a number of posts

Disclaimer: I am not sure if/if not Malta will be added.

Wikipedia page:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malta

See my replies for my tips

Feel free to add any tips.

I hope that the developers take my suggestions into consideration. If you have any questions about the country do not hesitate to ask

General Information

#2 Post by natjer3 » 04 Apr 2019 06:54

Malta is an archipelago.
Due to its size, the scale needs to be different than that of the main map. In Malta cars drive on the left like the UK and cars are right hand drive. There are no highways on the island.

Islands I suggest
Malta
Gozo

Number plates:

Whenever a number plate ends with 'Z' it is a rental car.
Whenever a number plate uses the words 'BUS' it is public transport.
Police cars have 'GVP' written on their number plate.

Picture of police car:

Before I post about the ferries, I have come across a video of someone driving in Malta. There are a number of signs shown in the video. The road at 3:31 has just been rebuilt in the Marsa junction project (more on that in another post). It now has a total of 10 lanes and is called Aldo Moro road (ex Italian president)

Ferries

#4 Post by natjer3 » 04 Apr 2019 11:09

Ferries
I am suggesting two ferries:
1. Pozzallo - Valletta
This could connect the island to the mainland. It would require the addition of Pozzallo in the Italia DLC. This would not be a connection to the base game. This connection is very popular.

Website of the operator

2. Cirkewwa - Mgarr
If the island of Gozo is added, this is a required connection. In the future there is a tunnel project which is planned.

Website of the operator

Note:
I would like to ask the developers if it is required for a ferry to connect to the base game as this might be slightly difficult

No, it isn't. There are plenty of ferries already that don't connect to the base map.

Signs

Signs
In the video that I attached in the post named 'Videos', you might have seen a few signs.

Here I will be showing some more.
Roundabout signs.jpg
This kind of sign is seen when you are going to go around a roundabout.
Choose your lane.jpg
This sign might not be as common in other ETS2 countries but it is seen when there is a lane which becomes a slipway in Malta and normally 'Choose your lane' is written.

Other signs include
signs 1.jpg
signs 1.jpg (7.09 KiB) Viewed 989 times
signs 2.jpg
signs 2.jpg (11.64 KiB) Viewed 989 times
signs 3.jpg
Our traffic signs tend to be written either in Maltese or English as they are both our official languages.

There are certain letters which are used in Maltese but not in English which you might have seen in these signs. These are:

Ċċ Ġġ Ħħ Żż

The letters 'Cc' and 'Yy' do not exist in Maltese.

Extra info:

'għ' and 'ie' are considered as one letter even though there are two letters

EDIT: Sorry but I forgot

This is a link about technical guidlines by Transport Malta about traffic signs

Some types of urban trucks and also semi-trailer trucks. This is that type of truck for the Euro Truck 2 game only trucks from the country of Malta:

Route: Germany - Austria - Italia - Italia (Sicilia) - Malta.
Here is an example of a semi-trailer truck journey with cargo between Germany and Malta.
A journey of 4,500 km, and has 3 ferries to reach the destination. The destination is probably some city on the island of GOZO.
  The second largest island, and corresponds to the northern region of the country of Malta.

(Customs) DWANA - MALTA
Very interesting this Customs Scanner truck that Malt,a has is a beautiful attraction to be on the map of Malta.
Maybe in the game we can pass with the truck and the trailer loaded by the scanner of this trailer of the Customs service of Malta, when we delivered cargo in the port, or we were leaving the port with some cargo. It is also a good suggestion for a truck and trailer to be added to Euro Truck 2 at the ports.

@plinio.lisboa.br thank you for the images and videos. Quick point to make regarding your previous post, the second picture has ambulances different to the rest. They have written SĠG (Sptar Ġenerali ta' Għawdex). Basically that means that they serve the island of Gozo and its hospital (in fact thats where the picture was taken, at the emergency). They won't be found on the mainland (Malta). Thanks for your contribution.
