ETS people!

I want to get back in to ETS, but I also want to avoid getting bored.

What are the best tips you have?

Any essential mods? :)

Thanks!

There is an event on: Operation Genoa Bridge that you can do and there is radio and music playlist that you can copy and paste music into and put on.

What part of ETS2 is making you bored? :)

Are you looking for trucks, trailers, skins, accessories, maps etc...?

I think it’s probably the long drives with lack of diversity. Standard ETS is great, but the road variety seems to be minimal.
I did have a few accessories and AI mods from the workshop, but they’re all inactive as they kicked up fusses with the game :P

I would love some nice trucks & maps if you know any :)

I've moved this over to a thread instead now @Ecronbuses :)

If you're looking for 'essential' mods, as long as you've got the necessary DLC I would recommend the ProMods map as it adds way more new places to explore!

Also, try to play the initial story line of working for an agency, saving money and unlocking various upgrades! It's something that people often skip through but the progression is quite good :)

Aswell as promods some other maps i use include:

Paris rebuild - [REL] Paris Rebuild v2.5 (10 May 2020) - SCS Software
Poland rebuilding- Poland Rebuilding 2.4.2 – Poland Rebuilding
Rusmap - [REL] RusMap 2.1 [1.37.x] - ProMods
Southern region - [REL] Southern Region Map 8.0 [1.37] - ProMods

all these maps can be used together. For loadorder see - [GUIDE] Load order for recommended compatible maps [1.37] - ProMods

For trucks and trailers take a look at the SCS forums:
Trucks
Trailers

Create a new thread and post the issue and gamelog (can be found in documents/eurotrucksimulator2) - you can paste the contents to pastebin.com (no account needed), or attatch the log to your post ; and then me and Max can take a look and help you :)


Other times i think maybe taking a step back and playing other games for a few weeks tends to take the bordem away.

Honestly I can't even play without promods map now, if you want map diversity its second to none

Thanks for the tips! I only have the Scandinavia DLC, which I assume doesn’t fit the requirements.

I shall have a look! If the game gets an update, how bad do the maps break? :)

the mods would cause the game to crash when choosing a depot to move to or buy trucks for, which was strange.

You will need all map DLC's for Promods and the other maps unfortunately.

It depends on the update really. Some are major changes such as when a new map dlc is released or a map change has occured. Others may be smaller ones which don't really affect maps.

It's hard to say what's causing the crash without seeing the gamelog :)

When and if you get bored of the base map, buy all the Map DLC's (during a sale, they go for like 80% discount) and you can download something called ProMods. It enhances your experience, massively. It rebuilds every road and adds more cities in every country. Its amazing.

If I’m smart enough to remember tomorrow, I promise I’ll search for it 😂 :P
I appreciate the help :)

I can recommend the Grand Utopia map - fictionalized France to a 1:1 scale, but requires DLC. There is truckersMP, but also requires DLC I think?

It never used to, unless you wanted to drive in to the map DLC areas. It's been a long time since I've played truckers mp though, so may be worth checking their current requirements :)
