Hello Platypus,

may I ask what your plans are after the release of Road to the Black Sea? Would you be in charge of developing the asian part of Turkey or is there another developer? I know it is still time for that, but I am curious.

About the questions since my last post :

For release, I will give the usual answer : when it's ready ;) Please don't ask when, I don't know ;) But as ScuL said, it will be after Promods comptatible with 1.35
Due to the fact the 1.35 beta was released just after PM 2.40, we are working now with this version. So sorry, but don't expect Middle East for PM 2.40

Turkey and Syrian coast : now that "Road to the Black Sea" is announced, a connection through Turkey becomes for me a nice option.
It's actually just an idea, not an announcement I do and I have just some imprecise idea, but an Istanbul-Ankara-Aksaray-Adana road could eventually be built.
From there, it will depend of the evolution in Syria : it could continue via Antakya-Latakia-Tartous to join Lebanon or via a ferry between Mersin and Tripoli (LB) by example.

Anyway, it's more than 1000 km to build and if I decide to do it, I would wait until DLC comes out to have its new stuff.

Waiting for it, work could be continued in the Nile Delta or Jordan ...

Great plans, as always!
Would like to see Alexandria, Cairo, Suez in Egypt and Amman, Irbid + maybe some other cities in Jordan ;)

Are you referring to politics? if so, you should have stayed far away from building the Middle East. And yes, I know the ProMods rules, for example, ProMods won't make Kosovo, but this is a PM add-on. It would be a big shame if we will be unable to get to half of the Middle East because of stupid politics. :cry:

I refer just to general situation in the country. While it remains war area with borders closed to traffic, it has no sense to make it drivable.

Well, I did expect that the initial release of your work would wait until ETS 2 1.35 is released but not that it is not to be released for this version of ProMods. Guess we have to wait a little longer.
but an Istanbul-Ankara-Aksaray-Adana road could eventually be built.
I think this route should be done at least to ensure a connection to the Middle East. That's very good news for me.

Anyway, I liked Cyprus very much so I am happy to read, that you consider taking on this massive job. Keep up the good work.
