[WIP] Europe 1:15

Welcome to Europe 1:15
Description

Europe 1:15 is a map for the game Euro Truck Simulator 2. Europe 1:15 is a Freeware map.
We are working on a map, that replicates Europe in 1:15 - fully selfbuilt, and as realistic as possible. The difference between 1:15 and 1:19 might sound small, but in reality opens the gate to a completely new view of the roads you think you know. Europe 1:15 adds a lot of new roads and cities - even city centers - to discover. Start your Roleplay dreams on a map that might even run on your potato computer™️

No way! :o :shock: The only thing I'm worrying about is the size of the mod itself.

What's the difference between 1:19 and 1:15? are you facing a difficult challenge?

In 1:19, every kilometer of road in game represents 19 kilometers of real-life road. This means that if you have two cities 40 kilometers apart in reality, they will be right around the corner from each other in-game (and almost visible from the other). In 1:15, that same in-game kilometer represents only 15 real-life kilometers. This may sound like a small difference, but with the vast scale of Europe, that difference adds up!
Take a situation in which 3 real-life cities are spaced 30 kilometers apart from each other (60 kilometers from the two furthest cities). In the base game, only one of those cities will likely be included with MAYBE another one being a small scenic town. In this map, all 3 might be included, although only 2 kilometers apart.

1:15 is an awkward scale.
It's a bit bigger than the vanilla 1:19/1:20 scale, but is still small enough that a LOT of effort has to be put into determining what roads get included and what roads don't.
Personally, it feels like it would be too similar to the base scale to be worth the effort. Then again, it will be much easier and faster than working on a 1:3/1:1 kind of scale.

@poland.ball It does make me curious, though:
What made you decide to do 1:15 as opposed to something a bit more even like a 1:10?

@bobgrey1997 Hi! Thanks for explaining the difference.
I actually thought about 1:10 too, but I feel like its way too big to remake. I feel 1:15 is already good enough, since a lot of towns are already included.
I got a lot of support about the scale already, people think 1:15 is a decent scale, which I think too.

As seen on my Plan, smaller towns usually not included in 1:19 are added here (such as Aabenraa, Sonderborg,...) which wouldn't be possible at all in 1:15. I think in 1:10 I could only make the cities a bit larger and add some more towns, but not that much towns anymore. 1:15 Is a very good scale.
