Thanks very much!!

Added in 28 minutes 50 seconds:
Returning from 2 weeks' holiday, found that SCS has been pumping out even more Black Sea shots. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but a release earlier than October seems more and more likely. And so we must be witness to the return of Milan, who is going for a whistlestop tour of ProMods' Romania + neighbouring bits before all that hard work disappears into the annals of history.

Image

Leaving Košice in a hurry to pick up whatever I can find in Uzhorod in Ukraine to haul into Romania.

Image

Outskirts of Košice.

Image

Near the Slovak-Ukrainian border.

Image

Entering Ukraine, and Uzhorod.

Image

Streets of Uzhorod.

Image

In case anyone's wondering, no graphics mods in these shots, using a gimp filter to tart them up a bit. This one came out pretty nice. Well, I like it anyway.

Image

For some reason, the ProMods cargo mod didn't seem to be working, so ended up with Posped. Carrying used plastics to Craiova on a trip down the middle of Romania. First stop is Mukachevo in Ukraine, though.

Image

Here it is.

Image

Some nice scenery in Ukraine.

Image

Housing estate, or something.

Image

Leaving Mukachevo and heading for the border with Romania.

Image

Same location, other side...

Image

Image

Image

In no man's land.

Image

Welcome to Romania!

Image

After passing through the first town, Baia Mare.

Image

On the way to Cluj-Napoca.

Image

'Scenery town' - didn't catch the name.

Image

Here's Cluj.

Image

Interesting structure... this image makes me think of London.

Image

Image

Image

Cluj-Napoca is pretty nice...

Image

Leaving town. To be continued in the next set...

Thanks for looking!

Milan

Thanks a lot for the feedback and encouragement! :) :) :)

Added in 31 minutes 7 seconds:
Today we're continuing the tour of ProMods Romania, heading south through the heart of the country to Craiova, and then west and north parallel to the border with Serbia, ending up in Arad.

Image

I like this natural-looking solution to 'roads you can't go down' much better than the standard SCS one of opaque crosses and a very solid invisible wall - which miraculously AI vehicles are still able to pass through. If I can't drive there then the AI shouldn't be able to either. Why should they have all the fun?

Image

On the way from Cluj-Napoca to Sibiu.

Image

Image

A very familiar sight in ProMods Romania.

Image

Stopping for the night outside Sibiu.

Image

And off bright and early the next morning.

Image

Near Sibiu.

Image

Sibiu.

Image

Let's play Pooh sticks!!!

Image

Image

Image

After breakfasting on salam di Sibiu and cheese pastries we headed out on the last stretch down to Craiova.

Image

The countryside was quite varied.

Image

But there was plenty of yellow, as expected...

Image

Scenery town.

Image

Craiova up ahead.

Image

The Romanian flag welcomes us.

Image

Never been to Romania, but my experiences in mid-90s Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Russia + a rough knowledge of the country's post WWII history tell me ProMods have probably captured the look of the local cities pretty well.

Image

Image

The day was still young, so we picked up a new cargo to take to Arad.

Image

Ramas bun, Craiova.

Image

Turned out to be a lovely day.

Image

Image

Image

After passing close to Timisoara we eventually reached Arad.

Image

Time to find the delivery point.

That's it for now, čau... Milan

Back again with a 3rd set from ProMod's Romania - heading north from Arad to Oradea, then through the mountainous and forested north of the country.

Image

Finishing the last delivery in Arad.

Image

Great illusion of realism here...

Image

...created from artfully positioned assets - map-making magic : )

Image

Off through the suburbs to get a new cargo.

Image

Quite a long haul ahead (by my standards while taking shots for this thread) - across the whole country and down through the state of Moldova to Chisinau. Sorry to keep missing the accents off the words...

Image

Village scene on the way to Oradea travelling parallel to the Szeged - Debrecen road in Hungary.

Image

Image

Yellow is never far away. It's a great colour, and there's a lot of it in Romania - makes a change from the reds and browns of the USA, and the greens of the Baltic DLC.

Image

Really like this view...

Image

We've reached Oradea. Really like the signage in Romania.

Image

Image

Image

Heading out of town, the arrow signalling a merge to a single lane road appears almost immediately... lots of country driving to be had in Romania.

Image

Making progress towards Cluj-Napoca.

Image

Image

Could this be after Cluj already? I forgot to take pics of the map this time, too busy enjoying the scenery.

Image

Getting later in the day.

Image

The sun's still hot and the insects are buzzing.

Image

Image

As we move along the long road to the Piatra-Neamt turnoff, the scenery gets nicer and nicer.

Image

Mountains and forests at dusk... mmmmmm....

Image

Image

Image

Evening mists are rolling in and the owls are hooting. Shouldn't we have stopped for the regulation rest ages ago? Nope. We're playing in Extreme Energy Drink Mode. Fatigue Simulation is switched off...

Image

But seriously, driving at night is no fun. The final push to Moldova (the state, not the region of Romania right next to it) will have to wait till morning. Here we are passing the turnoff south to Piatra Neamt, Bacau and Bucharest. We're continuing west, though mountain country.

Image

Definitely time to find somewhere to park and get some well-earned rest.

Night night!

Milan

Back on the road again, in North Romania, on way to the state of Moldova, and still looking for somewhere to spend the night.

Image

Past the Peatra Neamt turnoff we encountered this scenery town with a nice castle.

Image

Image

Image

Finally stopped at this petrol station for the night - here we are starting off in the early morning.

Image

Image

Getting close to the border now.

Image

Very cool border post.

Image

Getting my papers ready.

Image

And we're through. I guess this body of water marks the border. Maybe one of those pipes belongs to Romania, and one to Moldova?

Image

Police keeping a watchful eye at the Moldovan border post.

Image

And we're in Moldova! A group of cows in a field without a fence next to the road. Nothing could go wrong there, right?

Image

Plenty of police around. Maybe they're looking for someone. Guess I won't pick up any hitch-hikers today.

Image

ProMods Moldova is the 2nd of 3 small pockets of other countries lying to the North (Ukraine), East (Moldova) and South (Bulgaria) of Romania. Serbia and Hungary lie to the west, but we won't be going there. Each of these 'pockets' are quite small, but nice to visit. Moldova has 2 cities, Balti and Chisinau (again, excuse me for missing out the accents). Here we are approaching Balti.

Image

Balti.

Image

Had a bit of a break in Balti, and then it was time to push on to Moldova's capital, Chisinau.

Image

Image

Aside from the cool border posts, Moldova also stands out via its mixture of road surfaces - damaged roads, concrete panels, cobble stones, dirt roads.

Image

Image

Image

It's this guy again.

Image

Arriving in the somewhat grim city of Chisinau.

Image

Image

Let's make that delivery. Bumped into a representative of a local truck company while enjoying a well-earned drink in a local bar. He needed someone for a couple of jobs, so I thought why not, especially as a. their trucks were yellow and I'm going through a yellow period right now, and b. the jobs involved driving a so-called 'rigid', which I've always wanted to do.

Image

The first job involved dropping off various consumables to petrol station shops around Bucharest. So, here we are the next morning, heading for the border with Romania.

Image

Leaving town past this sprinting soldier.

Image

...and this giant communications tower. Romania awaits... in the next set.
