Värtahamnen is already in place. Wasn't a tight fit and there was plenty of room on that side of the city. Same goes for quite a part of the city center.

However, Gamla Stan and the island south of it is now only scenery and not accessible anymore. Not only space issues play a role, but also optimisation. We hope we can improve the performance in Stockholm by this. Besides, the outskirts of Stockholm are now pretty broad, so Stockholm definitely feels big.

Karlstad needs to be rebuild from the ground up. The previous version was a sloppy copy-paste job that would fall out of style of the map. We want to do it right this time. Fortunately, SCS was so nice to leave some connections open to Karlstad (don't know if this was intentional).

Yay! Rebuilt Karlstad! :D Just one thing to take into consideration: The highway goes through a lot of residential areas and it is very much notable. Because as it looks right now it just goes through the middle of the woods.

I have a question maybe offtopic.:)
Why you did put värtahamnen instead of stadsgården? Was this a space problem or better road cconnection?
Feel free to add :)

Will you rebuild 2+1 roads with new assets?
I noticed, that DLC contains 2+1 road as one road, while Promods map uses two parallel roads.

I think they will use 2+1 roads, but they will change prefab to correct one - In review of DLC they told something about it.Why they did that?Maybe, because they didn't knew how do it correctly.

They were implemented as two parallel roads because that was the only way to do it at the time. The ability to create asymmetric road types was only added in the 1.9 patch.

MandelSoft, for me it looks as if SCS left those Karlstad intersections to you.
Same goes for the E45, east of Karlstad + rv26 west of Karlstad.
Stockholm, is parts of Klarastrandsleden/Söderledstunneln still there?
Gamla Stan road, was nice, but sort of not where you want to drive.

Yep, I am curious of how it will look :)

Scul, Stadsgården vs Värtahamnen:
The latter has more ferry connections.
Both have ferries to Mariehamn, Turku and Helsinki.

Right, I merged elements from both versions of Stockholm into one:

There are still quite some empty spots regarding landscaping, because not everything fits so nicely together. But at least, this part of the work has been done...
