Hi guys/gals at promods. I've asked before if there was ever going to be a promods map for ATS, and after all this time I guess is isn't happening so am not asking again.

I do want to know though, as someone who has no idea how to build maps for SCS products (ETS/ATS etc) would a map for US and Canada be easier to make now that Oregon is out w/ it's assets?

Meaning it isn't just desert and west coast looking map assets, could a promods type map be made for the US and Canada now?

Does SCS release these newer assets everytime there is a dlc?

Is there any place or anyone willing to teach map making?

I use to drive truck and been to all 48 and Canada (Except Newfoundland and the Arctic region) so am familiar w/ a lot of the view one would see at certain points. I am kind of interested in how much it would cost program/software wise to begin map making and making assets.

Thanks for your time and answers, much appreciated eh. From a loyal promods guy back when I played ETS still.

If you have ATS, then it's the game itself + DLC's and your time, energy and electricity and food bills.
https://promods.net/viewforum.php?f=36 should put you on the right way about making map mods.

Assets, might need some more programs tho? not sure.
