Ever run into one of those Autobahn diamond interchanges where the rightmost of two lanes suddenly becomes an exit? The "oh my god I need the left lane why is there a CAAAAAR!" interchange (because cars do 150+ on the Autobahn and pop out of nowhere)? Those things used to be *everywhere* before the rebuild began, and now they're pretty much gone from the areas the rebuild have covered. And another style of interchange had super narrow entrances to the onramps, so you'd need to make a massive buttonhook or get your trailer stuck on the guardrails. Those are also gone from the rebuilt area. And neither appear to have been used in DLC after Scandinavia, which is frankly a massive relief. If you want to see what all of Germany looked like, check out the current state of Austria in game, AKA "you know what, I'll go around" country.Trucker_71 wrote: ↑23 Mar 2020 16:18I have both ETS2 and ATS, I enjoy them both for different reasons. I live in Canada and drove trucks for many years in both Canada and the U.S.
I keep reading how European players are so dissatisfied with the original parts of their map. Is it really that bad? When I go through Germany, France and the UK in ETS2, it all looks good to me, I see no real difference in the scenery between that and one of the newer maps. I find the same with ATS, people complain about California and Nevada, yet it looks great to me and I've driven through those states in real life.
Is everyone perhaps being too critical? Maybe folks should just let SCS do what they do best without all the speculation of what should be or could be.
Just an old guys humble opinion.
Not to say that the later DLC didn't add their own massively annoying features, like toll roads with booms on all the lanes, even the telepass ones. Booms that won't open fast enough to avoid crashing even at the speed limit, you have to drop to 28 kph to clear the boom... (Scandinavia is the place that did toll gates best - no booms on the telepass lanes, and at least one doesn't have a lowered speed limit, you can basically drive straight through the telepass gate at the Öresund bridge between Malmö and Copenhagen at 80 kph.)
