We do not live only in the World of Trucks, we are fans of real life events and of course sports. The timing of National Window Flags DLC release happening right at the start of Euro 2016 was not a coincidence. International sports competitions provide many more opportunities to proudly wear national colors; the 103rd edition of Tour de France is here now! A photo from the event that we have spotted actually happens to be an inspiration for this blog post.

We can show you a comparison between a real place and an the same location in the game. Behold windmill Gué Sainte Marie near commune Les Trois-Moutiers. On the accompanying screenshots, you can see the mill and its surroundings courtesy of Google Street View, a photo from the current Tour, and finally a screenshot from our upcoming Vive la France! DLC.

I wonder if the rest of the DLC will be like that or if it's just been done to make a cool blog post?! :P

Awesome work none the less, from what we've seen so far they're spending a lot of time making sure things are more accurate representations of real life! :)
