Hi! Love the work on Sweden. I have driven all the way from Malmö to Tornio in version 2.30. It's amazing!
A couple of personal suggestion about future expansion in the southern parts:

1.)It would be cool with some more scenery around the city of Jönköping along the western side of lake Vättern coast like Bymarken, Mariebo and Bankeryd (it looks amazing at night when driving on either western or eastern side in reality just looking at the city lights). I also always missed Husqvarna in the original game.

2.) I found out that Truckstop Ljungby, between E4 and RV25, is (if not the largest) one of Swedens largest truck stops.

As I said, only personal suggestions..

Amazing work! =)

I am familiar with this area IRL and I also agree that a reference to Husqvarna would be nice (I believe we had something in ProMods 1.0)
Also a personal memory is seeing the sign "Smålands flickorna finns i Ljungby" near that rest-stop. I have attempted to find a photo of it but so far can't locate it.

The E4 is so realistic! The fuel station at the roundabout in Piteå looks exactly like in real life! Very well done :D

I drove past the exit to Luleå, hoping for the "XXX" barriers to disappear soon ;)

Nice! :) I happen to live in Kronoberg. The sign is since some years ago replaced with a digital advertising sign for the town.
I think you meant this one?

There was another one of similar nature, but if they have been replaced that explains why I can't find them.
They were large brown tourist signs, in both directions. One coming from Jönköping and the other coming from Örkelljunga
I suppose they could possibly be considered sexist.

I would guess it is the same. But the text is not fully visible on the picture because of the fir tree, and color is too red.

The picture is from an article that explains what you said, and it is very true. :lol:
From afar it looked like something very different than two girls (from the well known Swedish song, written near the town, called "Flickorna i Småland" translated "The girls in Småland"). The picture combined with the text "Flickorna I Småland finns I Ljungby" ("The girls in Småland are found in Ljungby") was therefore by quite a lot of people misapprehended as a sexistic message.

Could have been better to have a bit more colourful picture, than a red and white picture.

Interesting to finally understand the events and facts behind this sign :)
