Hi everybody,

Here some new answers and pictures :

About the plates : there's a difference between the cities names on the map which use the default font from the game (so no arabic or hebrew supported) and the navigation signs and license plates which use custom designed fonts or images. On navigation signs, hebrew is a font (even if I'm forced the reverse each hebrew name to make it appear correctly, it works ;-) ). Arabic names are images (a font is not possible because of the linked letters, which changes of form in function of the place in the word).

Also, thanks @hzkol for the remark about Haifa. I will fix the spelling error.

Jerusalem : due to it's internationally discussed status, I prefer to make only the western part drivable (with the parliament). Eastern part (with the Dome) will be shown but not accessible.
Here an overview of the city with a few landmarks :

First off: This map looks brilliant!
Second: Could you maybe add the town of Salerno in Italy, because there is a ferry there that runs to Ashdod and this would be another great connection, if you don't want to drive to Greece or Cyprus.
If you could cooperate with Arayas, maybe you could (in the future) make a ferry between Tasucu (Turkey) and Tripoli (Libanon).
I am waiting for this (and the Baltic DLC) to come, because this looks (I'm repeating myself) just amazing, but I wanted to let you know these things :)

So you won't make any palestine regions or do you refer only to the palestine part of Jerusalem?

This is excellent work. I look forward to watching this progress and of course the DLC when it becomes available. Hopefully Turkey will be resized by then and all the great map projects can tie into one large map.
Good Luck with your work, it looks really excellent.

About West Bank, there will be mainly two roads : [1] from Jordan border to Jerusalem and a part of [90], along the Dead Sea. It will include two cities under control of the Palestinian Authority (Jericho and Ramallah). However, as already said, controversial or sensitive elements like separation wall or colonies will NOT be represented ... But I will show more about this part later ;-)

Regards,
Platypus
