Please work step by step. Easiest way is adding the city defs.

If you have packed the base.scs file go to //def/city . In this folder has every city its own file. Look around in these files and look carefully how they are built up. Then copy one and rename it to nthe city you would like to. If you made the seperate city files you need to add them in the city.<yourmod>.sii file (you can find that in the //def folder). It is a copy of the city.sii file (you probably have to make) with all the cites which are in the original file removed and exclusively the cities you've added.

You also need to make a country def. Thsi works the same way as you have to add cities but then every file is called something with country instead of city.

Changing road layouts on roads and prefabs is mainly model-related and not neccesary to know when you start one of your (probably) first maps. Focus on the landscaping first, that's way mroe important. Road layouts will follow.

Good luck!!

Remember that the academy section is supposed to learn things to make, not to get them. Otherwise we would have made a marketplace instead.

Go to ETS2's steam installation directory and extract the def.scs with the SCS Extractor (Google for it) :)

Go to google maps and look at Turkey. They do have the city/town/village names on their maps, as well as the road layouts. 8-)

Deleted your request for this topic in the Dunsfold Airfield section. Please only post things related to that subject there. And keep in mind that we will look into the whole academy section (I do not only look into the Dunsfold section :p)

Of course it will work with truck/trailer mods :) and start with simple roads and go into more complex stuff.

By the way... If he uses assets from ProMods and publish his work to public, it is actually illegal, isn't it?

It would if he packed those models in his map and reuploaded them. But since the main ProMods file is locked this is impossible, so if he used ProMods assets his map would require ProMods which is not illegal ;)
