Why do you think SCS would not be interested in this poll. I think that SCS also listens to its forum members.
I didn't say it wouldn't be interested into know our wishes or that they don't listen forums users. What they listen from us are our trends and opinions; not our comments saying them how they should run their business (that's why all those "SCS should" in topic tittles are useless and misleading). And what I meant in my previous message is that no serious company with several million customers and tens of thousands of daily users on its games is going to decide anything based on a poll that got 700 votes in one year (approx).

Specially if we consider the fact that, as I told you and xXCARL1992Xx did too, SCS decided which DLC will come after Iberia way before the last reset of this poll. We have one map DLC per year but that doesn't mean that they require just one year to make a map DLC. They have shared lots of bits of info about all their internal process through the years and you can count that a map DLC should had been decided for sure over 2 years and probably around 3 years before its release.

So, in the hypothetical case that next DLC would be Balkans, have for sure that this will not be SCS deciding so as a kind of apologize or restoration over so many people hiper-frustrated after they hiper-hype we had pre-RttBS. Neither because the result of this poll (that it was GREATLY biased due that collective rant way back). If SCS releases West Balkans the next DLC after Iberia it will be because they already decided it way before people still to complain for weeks all over the forum as happened back in December 2019.

So, we can continue sharing our thoughts in here about whatever detail we could find reasonable; but we can't expect that anything we say in here or we vote would have any relevance; by the very basic facts that our messages here arrive late and because we don't represent the whole community.

I tried to overlay the current SCS map over over Google maps to see, if any "big" roads would be visible in northen Scandinavia or Balkans

https://ibb.co/WgGjcvv https://imgbb.com/XzDfrZ9

North Scandinacia seems not to have that many, but sill a decent roadnetwork. Sadly I can'T move the SCS map farther north than that.

Balkans has a lot of roads- eventually a bit too much to add them all.
Those are just the low number and or E-route roads. For Sweden and Finland.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_national_road
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_national_road No maps, at all.
+ Include to those the smaller roads that connect to forest roads for forest industry.
Sometimes even the 2 digit Swedish National Roads can have timber trucks loading, taking 1 of the 2 lanes.

I wish for a completed Balkans, at the end of next year, or that winter atleast.

IMO Western Balkans or rest of Fennoscandia. Leave the Asian countries Turkey, Georgia, Armeria and Azerbaijan for a potential Asia Truck simulator
since ETS2 actually is about truck driving across Europe judging by game description on Steam which clearly defines Europe as the geographical location.
Travel across Europe as king of the road, a trucker who delivers important cargo across impressive distances! With dozens of cities to explore, your endurance, skill and speed will all be pushed to their limits.

Regarding the northernmost part of Bothnian Bay.
It will be a bit troublesome.
Skellefteå, Piteå, Luleå, Haparanda, Tornio, Kemi, Oulu.
Oulu and Luleå would be in 100%.
Skellefteå should be good too.
Piteå, too close to Luleå, so maybe scenery.
Then there is Haparanda, Tornio, Kemi.
Haparanda and Tornio are twin towns, on either side of the border and it would be sad to not have both in.
Kemi is really! close to both.
Of those 3, I would sadly ax Kemi.

So the coastal towns of Gulf of Bothnia, I would put in, are:
Umeå, Skellefteå, Luleå, Haparanda, Tornio, Oulu, Kokkola, Vaasa and Sundsvall.
Bonus included, the ferry between Vaasa and Umeå.

Cities or towns between Umeå and Sundsvall? There is Örnsköldsvik, but... scenery?
Cities or towns between Gävle and Sundsvall? No clue, if any.
Cities or towns between Vaasa and Pori? No clue, if any.
It' s the high coast area, very scenic. Hilly (without being mountainous) and both straight and curvy roads.

Rest of Fennoscandia would be another mega DLC, right after Iberia. or after Western Balkans.
I would love to have it in 1 go, but that might be a bit too much. I'm more for a 2 parter for Fennoscandia.

I think it's fair to say that Ireland, Greece, Yugoslavia, maybe even Ukraine will come before Fennoscandia. Although... can you imagine the outrage if Fennoscandia does get added in before Yugoslavia :lol:

And so what, i coulnt Care less for Balkans, Scandinavia has been a dlc since 2015 about time it get finished, always When SCS has done anything in the north it has been half ass finish, but South Europe Dont get capped off, only about time they finish the area. It so beautiful Nature and would Also really give some challenging roads that every body is asking for all the time.

Nothing compared to the outrage it would had happened if we were getting fennoscandia this year instead of west Dalkans or Iberia. Both "rage groups" would had teamed up to "spice" us the confinement times. :lol:

If ATS were to get only one dlc next year (considering Texas is also in production), ets2 might be getting two, in order to maintain the annual revenue.
Paint everything black! :idea:

I can, imagine the outrage.
That's 1 reason I want it done, before going up north again.
+ there's that Moscow area too. So it might take a while before anything comes up north?

@Shiva I actually had a dream about driving in Fennoscandia, no joke. But I got to say, imagining the outrage, it might be more fun to go North first, then do Yugoslavia. Oh, the rage. :D And besides, what are they going to do if Yugo gets delayed by another year? Not buy it when it eventually comes out? As if! :lol:

Ireland could be problematic though, now that I think about it. It would make sense to have the UK rework paired up with it but now I keep hearing about these massive lorry parks they plan to build in Kent and it would be insane not to include them in the rework. But these things are also months away from completion and this might delay the whole UK + Ireland content.
