Unfortunately, since there is no development in France, I am afraid that there is no real project in the future (unless if a developer comes and say the opposite). Maybe in a distant future, but I think it will have nothing in the near future.
Ah, that's too bad. There are some old PM cities and areas in France that could use a little rebuild, such as Pau or Perpignan. Neither of them utilize assets from post-Scandinavia DLCs, and they clearly look outdated compared to the rest of France.

After, Perpignan and Pau are maybe outdated, but there are still good and beautiful in my opinion. When I see Clermont-Fd, Limoges, Rennes, Bordeaux or Toulouse, Perpignan is probably 100 times better than these disgusting cities.

Bordeaux, Toulouse etc disgusting?!
Sir/Madam, I totally disagree!

Missing Kutchek? Yes to that.

The whole F1 track, that should be a no go, to be honest.
Part of F1 pitlane area, maybe? sort of realistic.
Any space for it? Depends what magic the ProMods mappers can do.

Will we ever see Monaco?
No clue, but it would be nice.
Monaco 2011 Route. Traffic map.
Possible ETS2 route 1 and/or 2?

In Bordeaux, you didn't have the Aquitaine bridge, which is undoubtedly one of the most important bridge in France. With an industrial area that you not recognizable nothing, the south of the city is totally unrealistic and looks like nothing. Only the ring road of Bordeaux is well done. Rennes, the ring road is good, but I din't see where is the city. Toulouse, the motorway system is catastrophic, nothing is recognizable and I was disappointed when the most importants interchanges of Toulouse, like the Muret exchangeur in the south of the city which was not done. Limoges it's very unrealistic. Clermond-Fd, like Toulouse, a catastrophic motorway system, and it's very unrealistic. Honestly, even Strasbourg or Reims on the base map are better than these cities.

The bridge over Loire near St. Nazaire also is unrealistic. I'm missing realistic suspension bridge with characteristic white-red pylon.

For me France DLC was one of the most boring DLC's ever - with most of undiscovered roads. All scenery is just roads with almost nothing to see around. Everything from cities, scenery and up to signage feel the same and copypasted. DLC Italia was much more better.

Could part of the issue be French copyright laws?
I do have some memory of that.
And.... SPACE is an issue.
I could go on big rants of Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö, Jönköping, Linköping etc.
SCS and! ProMods versions.
Sundsvall gets thumbs up. "Altho I am sure I easily could find things to disagree there too"
I could go on rants on Italian, Baltic etc... cities too.
I'll repeat, space is an issue.
And I am sure ProMods can and have fixed some things that SCS did not do.
And I'll repeat again, space is an issue.

Is there ZERO things that are good in SCS France DLC?

Yes, I do counter rant. And not sorry for that either.

SCS and ProMods mappers are good.
I do not always agree with how these have done things.

Currently I can not check ETS2, new PC has no RAM "failure"
And old PC has failing watercooling. + laptop no good for ETS2.
Monaco 2011 Route. Traffic map.
Possible ETS2 route 1 and/or 2?

Yes, there are some good things in this DLC, such as bridges, the environment, villages and national roads. But unfortunately, there are somes bad points.

When I see that between Paris and Bordeaux, you have 600 km without any cities in the middle, it's not a space issue anymore. I mean, in the way of mapping of SCS, he's not really trying to save space for put more stuff, like ProMods does. After, I can understand that SCS do not want to fill too much the DLC for it to be the most playable for weak pc.
