Hello. I am quite new here. Actually, Promods 2.30 is my first version that I am trying and so far I can say that it is pretty damn awesome. Anyway, this is not really a problem, more of a question for you. I know this have been highly discussed and I've read most of the posts about this topic but I would like to know what is actually causing this on my machine. So, the loading time the first time I installed PM was at around 25mins. But now, it won't go under 10 mins by any means. Also, I mention that I have quite a lot other Jazzycat mods installed and I am aware that they might cause this delay. Also, I am aware that it might be due to my laptop (which btw is 4yrs old) or maybe the HDD I am using may be slowly dying. Basicly, all I want in this post is for someone who knows how to read the log to tell me what is causing this loading time. Also, please help me get the log file because I don't really know to do that.
Thanks a lot and I hope I did not make anyone mad for posting this. Again, sorry if I posted this wrong, I am only with the community for a short time and I don't want to break any rules. :mrgreen:

Specifically the Jazzycat trailer/cargo pack(s) are known to increase the game loading time significantly. The A.I. traffic/truck packs from Jazzycat don't have too much effect on the loading time.

Thanks a lot to all of you. I have like 2 cargo mods and some other AI traffic mods...so this should be the cause. I will upgrade to a much more powerfull laptop very soon and I will come back with an update about loading time then

That's why I only use the oversize trailer pack that is only 400 MB instead of 2.2 GB of trailer and cargo pack https://ets2.lt/en/overweight-trailers- ... ycat-v7-4/ + add the SCS Trailer Patch this is a lot lighter and faster.

I use the TCP because it has the best compatibility with Promods

Today I've got my new laptop, an ASUS ROG GL753VE. I will play the game for a couple of days from now and I will be back with an answer on the loading time evolution
