As we are getting closer to the finish line on ETS2 Scandinavia DLC, it's time to show you more of what we have in store for you. Here is a small scale map to reveal the destination cities we are putting into this world expansion. This little map doesn't tell the whole story - the highways, roads and city streets are now a much more detailed system than what we currently have in the older parts of our ETS2 universe.



We have dedicated a lot of time and attention to recreating Scandinavian sights and landmarks in order to make the scenery more vibrant and lifelike. We tried hard to distill the looks and sights of the region to stay true to its spirit, and in the process created a lot of new assets to make driving more varied and the exploration more interesting.





The scenery is additionally supplemented with new delivery types and unique locations such as Scania and Volvo Trucks factories. Since ferry transport plays important role in this area, Scandinavia DLC also will feature numerous ports and deliveries aimed at supporting those locations.

Hello TSM Fans,

Your Waitng comes to an End!

The last times were very busy for us, escpecially for our Mapper, because of the short release circles of the SCS Patches. They often must done adaptions, therefore was plenty time and the opportunity to took something new in our map. Please excuse this.

For the TSM Map 5.4 we had time put some new things in it, not only bugfixing:
- at first we exchanged the old „Elbtunnel“, which haven't really have a good look against the original one and make a completly new one.
- We added a new city, Bregenz
- In some more Cities you will now find TSM forwarding agencies
- On some Truckdealers you will find Freight Delivery- and Pickup Points
- We've done some Changes on the „A24“ in Germany
- We changed the gateways and Fuel Stations on the A12 in Austria

But beware! We will have two Versions from our TSM Map 5.4, one for Users which have the DLC Going East and one for users, they haven't.
That must gone this way with two versions because of technical reasons.

In the Future you can't play our TSM Map if you haven't the DLC's Going East and Scandinavia. This decision was very hard for us, but this is because the new technical conditions of the both DLCs are taking a great effort of time to design our map.
Please understand this.

But we will inform you before our next Map Release seperatly

And now we hope, that you have a good time with our new map

and wish you Fun and always a a bumper without wrinkles.

Your TSM Team

We reveal Scandinavia!

As we get closer and closer to the end line to publish the ETS2 Scandinavia DLC, we would like to show more of what we have prepared for you you. Here is a map in small scale so you can see which cities we have placed in this world magnification. This little map does not show you the full extent - the highways, roads and quick and contain much more detail than what we have in the older parts of our ETS2 universe.

We have devoted a lot of time and a lot of effort in making the Scandinavian views and attractions to make the scenes more vivid and lifelike. We really strict on us, the impressions and the appearance of the region play there in order to get the true spirit of the landscape there, and during this process we have lots of new content created ( http://blog.scssoft.com/2014/ 09 / new-countries-new-opportunities.html ) by more variation to bring in the driving experience on site and to make the discovery of interesting.

The scenery site constitutes additional elements such as new delivery types and unique locations such as Scania ( http://blog.scssoft.com/2014/11/unloading-cargo-scania-factory-in-dlc.html ) and Volvo Trucks (http: / /blog.scssoft.com/2014/12/volvo-trucks-plant-near-goteborg.html ) manufacturers. Because of the way the ferry transport plays an important role in this area of Scandinavia DLC will contain various ports and supplies, which are responsible for the support of these companies.

I wonder what other types of new cargoes/trailers we will have.. I mean so far we've seen/heard about the livestock trailer and I guess a trailer which will be able to carry full sized trucks (atleast if I remember correctly, on Squirrel's SCS Software office video series when they were looking at Scandinavia, they mentioned that you'll be able to transport full sized trucks and their parts from the factory).
