Thanks, Dude. I like it more than the old one. The real Aral doesn't have that high buildings, at least not many of them. So a rebuild was a must. :lol:

Guys, I got some bad news.

For personal reasons I'm withdrawing from mapping for a longer time. Had a long time to think about it and I have to give up mapping. I've discarded Discord, I'm no longer active there.

I guess I will only continue my own projects on a very low level. All of my projects are currently "On Hold".

I won't delete anything. You can still access anything I made and some of my projects will get small updates from time to time.

I'm not a mysterious personal, so I give you my reasons why I take this bigger break.

1st reason: I have to prepare for important tests at train conductor school. I don't wanna run over my teacher while having 8000 tons of steel under my ass. It's a strange feeling working on a good paid job after 5 years of unemployment and I don't wanna mess up. And of course I travel a lot during school times, because the education train can be anywhere in Germany.

2nd: Have some family issues, no details here.

3rd: Using my free times to get my girl and me some good time and maybe even some "sexy time" :lol:

4th: The map editor became a piece of indulgent crap with 1.35 update. It's more frustrating than my plastic modeling work.

Well, that's enough for now. I'll stay mostly quiet the next time. I'm not gone for good but I'll stay at the back. So keep my seat warm and cozy til I return and I promise, I will!

I'm gonna disagree with your 4th point. I think SCS did a great job on improving both game and editor. Honestly, I think ETS2 and ATS are the only software which I feel are really improving with the every new edition unlike many of those who come out with a terrible layout and design and make you only to miss older version with they every new update. I don't miss at all the old bluish graphics and cartoonlish feeling of the older ETS2 but I do enjoyed many new things in the game as well as in the editor including free node rotation and vertex tool.

So I have a good news for you regarding Road to Aral! 🇰🇿

Road to Aral which now is an addon for The Great Steppe is going to be a part of the Road to Asia map! Our map [Road to Asia] will stay compatible with The Great Steppe and if you will use The Great Steppe with our map, The Great Steppe will overwrtite some areas from our map. We decided to do so because It would be a nice addition for people who don't use The Great Steppe at all or use our map as standalone. There's some work to do (moving the map to the correct possition, removing models from The Great Steppe, remaking signs and so on) but we hope you'll enjoy our map more by this desicion. If The Great Steppe update will be released before Road to Asia release, we'll share updated addon version of the Road to Aral for The Great Steppe. And keep in mind, The Great Steppe WON'T be mandatory to use our map.

Yep, was tbh an easy decision to "hand" the map over to the RTA-Team, as I was one of the first guys included in the Dev Team. And I guess I'm still part of the team, even though I'm inactive :lol:

As I still have many things stuck in my head I let the guys do their job on my map and when I'm completely back at mapping, perhaps with new, modern gear, I'll take care of the Map details and probably expanding south of the Lake into Uzbekistan. :)
