PLEASE READ. THIS INFORMATION IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF LOADING TIMES

Since version 1.30 of ETS2, the game creates a "navigation cache" when loading a profile, or creating a new profile. When you load that profile again, with the mods list unchanged, the profile will load very quickly as a cache has already been created. If any mods are changed, removed, or added in the profile, when that profile is selected and loaded again a new cache will have to be made by the game, as some changes have occurred. This is what causes long loading times now in ETS2 on some occasions. If you create a profile with ProMods loaded and do not change anything in the mod list, after the first time that profile is loaded and a cache created, ProMods can load as quickly as 9 seconds! (as found out by Vøytek, using an SSD)

If loading times continue to be long, this is not a ProMods problem, as stated in the first paragraph. The loading times will be much longer whenever you add or remove a mod from a profile, and then load up that profile again.

Any problems with loading times not like explained above should be raised in a new topic on the Gameplay Issues forum.
