You really should open the map in editor than you will see that there isn't that much space but let's see what the official modders say ;)

Anyways I have some other questions not to say suggestions to you guys. As I live in the eastern part of Germany I know the areas around Magdeburg, Halle/Leipzig and Dresden very well. The fact that Magdeburg wasn't rebuilt in V 2.00 made me a bit sad but it also gave me the chance to make these suggestions (maybe you considered those ideas already yourself but let's see). First of all it is a pleasure to finally see BAB14 added but not everything is accurate. The Magdeburger Kreuz could be easily improved to make it even more realistic (some exits are missing a lane).Or the exit of Magdeburg Stadtfeld. Here the direction signs aren't correct. Between Halle and Magdeburg all signs on entrys of BAB14 say only "Halle" for direction Dresden and "Magdeburg" for direction Magdeburg. From Magdeburg on towards BAB2 they say "Berlin, Hannover" not "Salzwedel" or anything else. Also the sign for B1 is missing on the board before the Autobahn entry. I know these really are minor things but why not make it as realistic as you can if this is possible (and I'm very sure it is)?
Also BAB14 should have 6 lanes (3 per direction) between Magdeburger Kreuz and Magdeburg Stadtfeld (also easy to change without destroying the beautiful landscape).
Let's come to my suggestions for Magdeburg itself.
I hope you consider building the so called Magdeburger Tangente (sometimes also City Ring). It's a freeway that runs directly through Magdeburg (so the name better should be "secant") and is part of the B81, B71 and B189. It connects BAB14 and BAB2. It constantly has 2 lanes per direction but only at some points there are emergency lanes and there are no traffic lights only exits like on normal Autobahns. Beginning southwest of Magdeburg B81 crosses BAB14. Going on east B81 meets B71 directly at Magdeburg city limits. That is where B81 ends and B71 goes on directly into the centre of Magdeburg. In the middle of the town B71 meets B1 and shortly after this "junction" B71 leaves the ring heading towards Haldensleben and BAB14. From this point the ring is called B189 heading north towards Stendal and BAB2. After crossing this Autobahn it continues as 4-lane freeway (from this point with emergency lane) some kilometres north until it reached the Mittellandkanal. After crossing this canal it continues as normal rural road. Finally this road ends at the BAB19 exit Wittstock/Dosse. The whole city ring is west of Elbe river, so the crossing with BAB2 is before the Autobahn crosses this river.
It might also be interesting for you to know that there are "LBAs" from Magdeburger Kreuz up to the exit of Schönebeck in both directions. Those "LBAs" aren't that old so they won't appear on "Autobahnbilder.de".
I would really like to hear what you think about my opinion.

Greetings :)

Which Rostock harbour? The ugly thing SCS produced with huge mountains beside it?

Actually the Scandinavia DLC added SCS Rostock harbor was pretty close to IRL, much better than the old ProMods version.

Yup that is true. We are discussing it atm. I think we will probably add the Rostock harbour in the place of the crappy old one and rebuild it a bit.

That can be changed easily ;) we weren't quite sure which cities to put on the direction signs because there are no pics and videos of that area

Then to the suggestions for Magdeburg. The rebuild of Magdeburg is not a priority right now, but we can consider it when the ARP is finished. Also there is not much space in that area. South of the BAB2 there are models that are only visible from the BAB2 and when we build an exit there, the whole view will be destroyed. And we really wanted to create the view of Magdeburg from the BAB2. But the LBAs are no problem ;)

No I personally didn't know this before... thanks! :D But I see that the A14 from Magdeburg - Leipzig is also missing there.

Yeah, the Harbor! It looks real good, tbh.
The road looks ok too, except the mountains? that does not exist.?

I trust you have the skills to implement the harbour.
+ maybe even fith roads 103, 105, 19 to it too?
