I see coming to Bergen you've set 100km/h. There is no more than 80km/h on any road around bergen. Even the small stretch of motorway have 80km/h.
Would also move the toll both near intersection of Rv.7 and E16 closer to Bergen to simulate the toll ring there.

To much traffic generated around Geilo and Odda. It almost ended in a gridlock at Geilo roundabout.
Not sure how the small roundabouts are done, but I love them as a challenge. However AI seem to have no respect of traffic rules in them :)

Yes I totally agree about the traffic around Geilo to Odda. I just happen to have a shot of the solid line I came up against in Odda. I will post a link to the image because it is too big to post here.

I thought this was the case but didn't check. I'll replace the 100km/h with 80km/h in the next update.

The traffic is probably generated exactly because of these small roundabouts, the AI reacts funny to them which I like. :)

I think there was also 100km/h near Stavanger. There it should be 90km/h.
Also think traffic was doing 80 or less even if the sign said 100.

Use the key up top in left corner to see color codes. Bright blue are motorways with 100km/h.


Also please use small dangerous curve indicators for most roads. The wide ones were more common years ago and is still used on very sharp turns.

Toll booth between the two ferries on E39 between Stavanger and Bergen do not exist anymore. It was closed April 30th this year, and the Triangle Link has been payed for ;)

Well ETS2 was published in October 2012 so we keep that date as point of reference for "actuality" :)

Just wanted to say great job with Norway! So far it's the country I've explored the most on the map. I'm just wondering though if it's really necessary to have to go through the customs area when crossing into Norway from Sweden... although Norway is not in the EU, it is part of Schengen. (Although I can't really speak from experience how this border crossing goes... when I visited Norway two years ago I flew in, and when I left it wasn't over land but by ferry. So I have not actually seen that border crossing myself.)

The Svinesund crossing is closed for customs most of times but there are days it's open and the motorway just goes straight through.
Generally they only have a quick peek in the car and check who and what is in it and if you don't look suspicious wave you through!
