Today I finally added funds to my Steam for Iberia. Geographically I know whole of Europe but I have never been interested in Iberian peninsula. It has been four years since I started playing ETS2 and discovering my passion for trucks and travelling and that's the way how I learned so much about every country or region in Europe.

I was going through all photos of Iberia and I can see a lot of deserts, I'm not a very big fan of driving through the desert plains. But I hope that there will be some more greenish regions.

The north of Iberia is green. That's the good thing about Iberia: diversity.

I'm of the opposite opinion. I'm a sucker for rocks (long life Utah and its geomorphology).

Anyway, deserts in Spain are sparsely scattered on a couple of well defined regions, and definitely not plain except in the Monegros area.

What we really have is a lot of steppe. Iberia is a great plateau (or a MESA if you will) cossed by plenty of mountain ranges (SIERRAS), many of them well above 3000 meters.

Well, not really. I mean, it's quite obvious that this Twitter video is about Barcelona, especially if you've followed the blog posts about Iberia. So I wonder what SCS means with this Twitter video?

Fast food for the followers, Vinnie Terranova. Just that.

I have the hunch that this picture represents Cieza (Murcia, A-30). There's a wind farm in the mountains of Sierra de Ascoy, you can't see it from the road, maybe they opted to make it visible from the road perspective.
Hmmm, I've checked and A-92 (in Abla & Huéneja) and A-23 (near Barrancas) could have a similar landscape... A-30 option dismissed.

"Lots of deserts" :?

Do you actually know what a desert is in first place? Iberia only has a few (and isolated) regions that could be truly called "desert". Most of the peninsula has typical mediterranean climate, like central California in USA. The northern part of Iberia is a completely different story, very green, rainy and forested. Could be something similar as western Oregon/northern California if we follow this comparison with USA again.

Don't hit him too hard; considering most of the screenshots we had so far are from desert zones or very dry southern zones it's easy to form a biased opinion for somebody if doesn't know Iberia IRL.

Almost the entirety of the ETS2 map is green so I welcome the diversity of landscape with open arms (and wallet).
