Hi again, set 4 of 4 from NW Germany, this time heading north from Oberhausen to Bremerhaven.

Image

Love the skin that came with this DLC.

Image

Great bit of countryside between Oberhausen and Osnabruck.

Image

Image

Agricultural logistics centre. Those poor horses are freezing their hooves off.

Image

Osnabruck.

Image

Image

Not far away was Bad Oeynhausen.

Image

After a good hearty lunch we set off for the coast. It got wet and rainy while I was in the inn.

Image

Image

Image

Bremen lay under a pall of smog. I had to brush the fallen squirrels off the roof of the cab after stopping at the service station.

Image

Image

Last short stage of the trip.

Image

At the port of Bremerhaven. Love the toy container ship in the pond!

Image

Isn't that where they put the lost Ark?

Image

A nearby village...

Image

Image

Arrived!! Now let's put that asphalter to work!!

Bye for now....

It is, you can actually drive between all the containers, it's like a little maze in there. The whole town is a very nicely done bit of scenery!

Back again with a cold and icy Christmas special. Well, a Christmas special in the sense that Happy Christmas is going to be written at the end of it : )

6th series from the SCS basemap with ProMods, Grimes's and Jazzycat's mods installed.

This time - a trip from Brno in the Czech Republic to somewhere between Graz and Linz in Austria. Time: late January - the depths of winter in this part of the world.

Image

A big muddy hole in Brno. Cue eerie female choral singing and a large black rectangle.

Image

Typical Brno scene. I should know - I live there.

Image

Leaving Brno in about the most miserable weather one can conjure up on ETS2 with mods.

Image

Reached Bratislava. The weather is horrid so I'm going to buy a couple of postcards of the city at the petrol station.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Now heading south to Vienna, Austria.

Image

Delivered our trailer to this rather large chemical plant.

Image

Heading into Vienna's centre, with the Stephansdom in the background.

Image

Vienna has been given a decent makeover by ProMods. Must visit again.

Image

Image

Image

Trouble at mill. One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treddle.

Image

Heading south to Graz.

Image

Better turn up the windscreen wipers - clouds of vampire bats expected.

Image

Another delivery. Missed out the word "bloody".

Image

Image

Outskirts of Graz.

Image

The Stadium at Graz.

Image

Image

Heading north towards Linz and Into mountain country at last.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Very idyllic... time for a break!

Happy Christmas everyone - hope you have a great Yuletide!!

Part 2 of this tour of a 6th region in the heartlands of SCS's base map with Promods, Jazzycat's addons and Grimes's seasons... and the first post in the new year of 2018, though I actually made it just after Christmas - hence the paint job towards the end. Santa was good to me this year: Bella Italia, Special Transport, Assassin's Creed Origins and... a new computer to play them on : ). And there was rejoicing!

Anyway, the weather looks more like late January in this part of the world - snow, snow and more snow - but we (re)visit some nice scenery.

Image

Approaching Linz from the south having been in Graz.

Image

Outskirts of Linz.

Image

Industrial sunset.

Image

Foul weather as we left Linz the next morning. Luckily it bucked up a bit later.

Image

In the Czech Republic once more, heading for Prague.

Image

Tanked up on fairy dust by mistake instead of diesel. I did wonder why the pump handle was all pink and sparkly but hadn't had my morning coffee so just let it go - glad I did.

Image

A South Bohemian fishpond polluted by liquid mercury. Lucky it's winter - might flood the nearby village on a hot day.

Image

Picturesque.

Image

Prague. Despite being based there and all the potential, SCS's rendition of the fabulous city of Prague is pretty dismal, sadly. Perhaps they'll revamp the heartlands one day...and hopefully not destroy too much of Promods' work while doing it.

Image

Image

Heading out of Prague to return to Brno, this time with graphics that are just a little crisper, with 400% scaling... : )

Image

The snow that lay all round about was also crisp, and deep and even as well.

Image

Image

Brno again...

Image

It's a fair likeness.

Image

New Scania! And a great cargo.

Image

Off to Vienna again, but this time direct and not via Bratislava. This short route is the nicest bit of the Czech Republic in-game, I guess. I know it well in real life. Takes about 25 minutes from Brno, always makes me smile when it appears 30 seconds after leaving the city in ETS2 :D

Image

This church on an island is all that remains of a village flooded to make these large reserviors.

Image

Image

Mikulov, on the border with Austria, has a lovely castle. It's a wine growing region too, quite nice to visit.

Image

Back in Vienna. Looks great in the sunshine!!

Image

Keeping the Christmas spirit alive....

That's all for now. I wish you a very Happy New Year!!!

With this post I am now half-way through my tour of the original (but modded) ETS2 map, and this is likely to be the nicest
set of pics to appear in this thread. Travelling from Vienna past Linz to Salzburg and then Innsbruck through some of the best scenery the base map has to offer.

Image

Starting off in ProModded Vienna...

Image

Image

Schonbrunn, photographed enthusiastically by some vaguely sinister types.

Image

Image

Got to take that thing to Salzburg.

Image

Village just outside Vienna.

Image

Beautiful scenery on this route.

Image

Image

Image

Salzburg wasn't that exciting on the whole but this part was pretty.

Image

Image

Ooooo, creepy!

Image

Image

Image

New paint and cargo... and a bit warmer weather.

Image

But really only a bit.

Image

Image

Spectacular mountain scenery accompanied us to Innsbruck.

Image

Image

Closer look at that fantastic castle!

Image

Innsbruck.

Image

Image

There's the ski jump!

Image

Just stopped for a kleiner brauner and it's already getting dark.

Image

Image

Image

Heading out of town. Want to get to Vaduz by nightfall.

Image

One last parting shot...

Really enjoyed this trip, hope you liked the pics.

Cheers
