The new SCS petrol stations are designed very differently to the older ones. They require a completely different skillset to reskin them for other companies. The old ones we just change the texture and make a new look. The new ones require making many model changes (basically creating an entire copy of the prefab and modifying it from there) since they store less information about how they look in the texture itself.

We investigated updating the AI. Adding our own versions means we need to update them ourselves any time SCS makes a change to them. Considering we don't have enough modellers as it is, and the ones we do have wear many hats, we considered this to be too much overhead to make the changes worth it.
Yeah i know, i mean just one more brand. to mix it in italy and france and scandinavia which have only one company, this is why i like the new stations! Also SCS has released GOB stations with 1.32 germany rebuild so i guess they will become usefull for further releases and maybe 2.30 too.

Hi, in the rework of Germany and the baltics sea dlc there were much greater looking roads introduced. Will they be used also in some other contries (like Austria, Poland, etc.)?

Hi,

sure - that is the reason why DLC's are getting mandatory - the developers are using the assets all over the map.

You can also check this thread - here it is explanied how the map would look like if the developers wouldn't use the assets coming with the DLC's:
