Denmark (Danmark)

København is the home of 1,992,111 people - Copenhagen is one of main financial centres in the Northern Europe. Vikings settled and made this settlement as fishing village in 10th century, but population grow and it became city and got city rights in 13-14th century. Copenhagen become one of the green cities in the world, that trying to reduce their carbon emissions in city. The city reduce about 20% of emissions in the end of the 2014. Without renewable energy sources like solar panels or wind farms, it be very hard. New building get their electricity in daytime using solar panels, but at night - by wind turbines. Copenhagen aims as target to become a city with neutral amount of carbon dioxide in 2025.

Denmark's population is about 5.668.743 people or otherwise, it is 113th in world's population. 89.6% of the population is Native Danish, while 1.4% of the population is immigrants from Europe or Asia. Denmark is a small country in Northern Europe with area of 42,915 sq km. Denmark is a kingdom, so its real name is Kingdom of Denmark. The kingdom includes the mainland - Denmark that is settled down in Jutland peninsula, the kingdom have Greenland and Faroe Islands too, but Greenland and Faroe Islands citizens are not EU Citizens at all. Denmark has a only land border with Germany, but right now you can get to Sweden using Öresund/Øresund Bridge that was opened to public use in summer in 2000. This spectacular project have a double-track railway with Motorway Bridge across the Öresund strait between Sweden and Denmark. Length of the bridge is about 8 kilometres, but its total length is 12 kilometres - other 4 kilometres are the tunnel. A lot of interesting stuff came from Denmark, but most noticeable is "LEGO" toys. With its coastal line (7.314km) makes about 20% of Equator's length.

ProMods' Denmark was released in 1.00 .It was developed by first developers of ProMods - Nico and Scul. Country originally had 10 cities - Copenhagen, Gedser, Rodbyhavn, Odense, Kolding, Esbjerg, Aarhus, Aalborg, Hirtshals, and Frederikshavn. In 1.70, country received other cities - Herning, Viborg, Holstebro and Padborg. Denmark is one of the most unchanged and outdated countries in ProMods map - same is with Norway and Sweden too. For next version of “ProMods”, the Denmark will be merged with DLC North and it will have a lot of new and improved stuff.

Faroe Islands (Føroyar)

Tórshavn is the capital city and is the largest town in Faroe Islands. Town's total population makes 1/4 of the all the islands population.

Faroe's population is estimated to 49.709, but it isn't that small then it is located in the North. The Faroe Islands is a small state of Denmark that consisting many islands with an area of 1,399 sq. km. The kingdom of the Denmark is a member of the EU, but despite the being in same country, but as a different country, so it makes those islands, not an EU member. "Country" have about 18 major islands with bush-free plains, hills and mountains across the islands - they are used for farming and rearing livestock such as sheep. Like mention before, the vegetation is poor, but naturally the grasses and mosses exist, but you can see some trees that been transported by locals. Sometimes the average temperature in a warmest months is 13°C resulting is mild summer days, but during the winter it is about 3°C, because of influence by Gulf Stream coming from the Atlantic Ocean stops the islands being colder.

In "ProMods" 1.9x, the Faroe Islands for 1.90 update. The add-on was made to divide huge ferry link to: Iceland - Faroe Islands and Faroe Islands - Scotland/ Norway. Purno made a research topic for it because the team wasn't sure whether to add it or not. It was built by Platypus and PH-AMG, who developed 2 towns/villages for the country, both with a population of less than 12,000 inhabitants.

Iceland (Ísland)

Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland, It has a population of 118,488 and it is located in the south west of Iceland. It is also the most northern capital in the world

Iceland is a nordic island located at the North-west of Europe, but nearest land near Iceland is Greenland - It is counting like European/North American. Iceland got their independence on 17th June 1944 during World War 2. Iceland is island - it is volcanic island, made thousands of years. Iceland has a couple of little islands near its coast. Iceland second largest town is Akureyri which is located in the North. Iceland is famous for their volcanoes and geysers, like Norway is too. Mainly Icelandic roads are unpaved - mostly in inner parts of island. Ring road is pretty much paved, because it is main road connecting ports, towns , quarries and ferries. Iceland have huge lack of trees as Faroe Islands too. Biggest vegetation in island is bushes, grasses and mosses. No one lives in the center of Iceland, because of no water and food - main food for early people in the island was seafood. Main export in the country is seafood or mined resources - limestone or other minerals. Then vikings discovered this island, they called it Iceland to make enemies go to "living-friendly" Greenland. The average temperature in Iceland on warm summer days are 20-25°C and the winter average temperature is 0°C.

ProMods already created Iceland by Purno .Purno is still building some more roads and cities , like inner island roads. In Iceland but the ring road has already been released alongside some beautiful city and scenery for countless hours of driving in these beautiful and "strange" places.
"Huge thanks for Iceland/Icelanders ,who was first people recognizing Lithuanian independence in 1991! Thank you some much!"

It have huge coastal length and it is useful for fishing or ports to transport the cargo. They main seafood is from North Sea or Bergents sea. With its mountains and rivers the hydropower is cheaper and better for them, when they are transporting their own oil products to others.

ProMods builded Scandinavia for 1.00 - it was a starter of ProMods we know. Of course ,right now because of DLC North - ProMods' Scandinavia will disappear , but it is new start to get further parts of Scandinavia. SCS' Scandinavia have a lot of new textures, features ,like AutoCollect and models and it makes good advantage for us and modders too.. A lot of the cities,that isn't in DLC, will go back again.

Latvia (Latvija)

However, only 61.6% (1.229.067) of the population is Latvian, while 25.8% (520,136) is Russian. It makes very hard situation, because 0.5 million people are Russians and it can become a "second language" in Latvia.

Latvia is a small country (64,589 km2) in Northern Europe, but it counts as Baltic State and Eastern Europe, because of being occupated in former Soviet Union. It is in between the two other Baltic "sisters" - Estonia and Lithuania. Of course - it have border with mainland Russia and Belarus. The highest point in Latvia is Gaiziņkalns, with height of 311m. The country has 494 kilometres of coastline with the Baltic Sea. Forests cover 56% of the country (about 32000 sq km). The transportation sector makes about 15% of the GDP in the country.It is good place to deliver,store, transport goods to get them to Far East (Russia,Kazakhstan ,other Asian countries) or transport to Europe.
Biggest ports in Baltic States is in Latvia. Most of the products transported are crude oil and other oil products. Rīga's International Airport is the busiest/largest airport in the Baltic states with 5 million passengers being transported, just in 2012, just because it have huge destinations to go.

ProMods Latvia is currently being built by RacerToft. Six cities are planned for Latvia - Daugavpils, Liepāja, Rēzekne, Rīga, Ventspils and Valka. Valka was already done by Nico for 1.9, since it is a twin city with Valga, Estonia. It is possible that Latvia will be included in 2.0, but that is not sure, as for this, a good connection with Poland is required through Lithuania, which is currently crashing. RacerToft has already reached Riga, although there are no news/screenshots.

Biggest islands of British Isles are Ireland and Great Britain - 3 countries are in this island. Ireland have different story ,it has Northern Ireland - the part of UK and Republic of Ireland - an independent country.UK is country of countries, because England, Wales and Scotland are the countries, but Northern Ireland are not, it is a province. Terrain in the South is good and hilly sometimes, North is colder and mountainous , like Scotland. Of course, country have a lot rivers and lakes,but longest rivers are "Thames" and "Severn". Most popular attraction and destination in Scotland is Loch Ness with its monster. Average temperatures in winter is 4.4 °C, but in summer is 15.6 °C.

ProMods had plans for UK. England had some rebuild near Dover and London, but work is halted because of SCS' information about their work there, but Wales have same problem too. Scotland have new rebuild and new towns in northern parts of country - It been made too as a fix for ferry bug between Europe and Iceland/Faroe. MandelSoft showed us some pictures about new road signs in Britain, but full rebuild of it isn't planned yet.

Russia is insanely huge country with 17.098.242 sq km. It is even larger than Pluto. It is so huge,what it have 2 parts - European Russia and Asian Russia. It borders with Poland in Eastern Europe and nearly with US. Russia been Russian Empire controlled by Tsar. In 1922 it disappeared and Soviet Union been born. In 1991 it collapsed and countries in Eastern Block - Baltic States, some Asian countries and others was free. Russia have a lot of islands in Northern parts of country - One of the biggest islands are "Novaya Zemlya" (New Earth). Climate is pretty diverse in this huge country - from plains to mountainous territories. Russia is huge and some territories are inhabited, so a lot of forests are alive , but situation, like Iceland and Faroe have are the same - in the northern Russia, territories are lack of trees and only grass or moss are growing vegetation there. Russian average temperatures can go to -10 °C in winters to 14 °C in summer , of course it depends ,where are you now. In North ,you will feel cold -40 °C or in south - nice +30 °C.

It's nitpick time! I'll start with the Faroe Islands and maybe do some more later. What is written makes sense (and is interesting to read) but the English could sound a bit more 'natural':

If you find a mistake or just disagree with the way I have written this, please make any appropriate corrections/improvements. I'm no expert at English, just a native speaker who wants to help :P

By the way, what's the correct colour to use for the developer names? What I have now doesn't look right...

Belgium is a fairly small country located in the Benelux region. They speak 3 languages which are Dutch, French and German. The 3 regions of Belgium are the Brussels-Capital region, the Flemish region (Flanders), the Walloon region (Wallonia). <snip>
I've got a bit of an issue with this, as it's incorrect and you're muddling up communities and regions.

If you're looking at Belgium from the point view of the organisation and administration of public life, there are 3 communities: the Flemish Community, the Walloon Community and the awkwardly named German Speaking community.
If you look at us from a political/lawmaking/public planning point of view, there are 4 regions: the Flemish region, the Brussels-Capital region, the Walloon region and the East Cantons (Eupen-Malmédy).

To confuse matters further Community and Region are one administration in Flanders (because we're sensible people :P), but seperate administrations in Wallonia and the East Cantons (and, of course, the Brussel-Capital government only exists at the regional level).

So, I'd say pick a level and state all members, doesn't matter which. Meanwhile I'll sticky this up for you.

Thanks so much for this! I will correct it now, DeusHorizon, Replace my 3rd Paragraph with this:

Belgium is a fairly small country located in the Benelux region. There are 3 communities: the Flemish community, the Walloon community and the awkwardly named German speaking community. Belgium got its independence in 1830. Belgium is also home of the headquarters of NATO and as I mentioned before, the EU. The average temperature of Belgium in the summer is 23°C and the average temperature in winter is 1°C
