However it's going to be hard to drive through Israel since i believe most borders to Jordan, Lebanon and Syria are closed right? Only Egypt border is open but it's quite messy since ISIS wants to controll the Sinai Peninsula. And don't get me started on Palestine.
Actually you can cross Israel - Jordan border in several places. They are at peace since 1994.

However I am wondering how are you going to treat Israel - Lebanon border. Of course we should not be able to cross it but even by having Israel stamp in your password you are persona non grata in entering Lebanon.

The last picture is definitely Eilat at Red sea. It would be nice to have also Taba and Aqaba if there is space...

Hello,

Of course, the last picture is a view from Eilat :-) Taba and Aqaba will be included.
For the moment, it will be the only cities in Egypt and Jordan. Maybe others will come later.

About the Lebanon border, to be realistic, it will be closed. You can narrow it by both sides, without crossing it directly.

Here are the planned ferries :
- Larnaka-Beirut
- Larnaka-Haifa
- Thessaloniki-Ashdod
- Aqaba-Taba

The last one is there just because it exists in reality. In game you can easily drive through Eilat. In real life, it would take hours and I'm not sure you can do this with a vehicle.
But it's a difference between game and real :-)

Looks splendid! However, I noticed (also in Cyprus) that the palms are unusually bright in comparison to the other vegetation. Is this a bug or a feature? :D

How great your plans are!

Eilat will be connected to main Israel by what road?

Maybe later you can extend Taba road to Sharm El Sheikh. A lot of europeans are going here to have rest.

What about Haql in Saudi Arabia? Looks like you have already made the Jordan - Saudi Arabia crossing. Saudis, Egypt and Jordan are discussing to make Taba, Aqaba and Haql into a single city/metropolitan area with possibility of Eilat joining.

You can also add names of that places in the local languages.
For example,
Eilat (אֵילַת‬‎ / ايلات‎)
Taba (طابا)
Aqaba (العَقبة)
Haql ( حقل مدينة )
You can find names of that towns on local languages on english Wikipedia.
Thanks!
