I know it's imposible but it would be great to have a huge traffic jam only for trucks to cross the Russian border. And a script that opens a menu and you have to hand the customs officer all the papers needed to cross the border.

That way, if you are taking a job and your destination is Russia, you have to plan ahead because you might not know the delay in border crossings.

SCS is implementing the feature where you show your documents to the customs officer at the border in the upcoming Baltic DLC. They check it and then you can go through.

I've seen that in a few vids on YT. It's a cool feature!

Bosnia would be nice, Sarajevo and Mostar would be cool to see in Promods. Plus the road between these 2 cities offers such breathtaking scenery which would be awesome in Promods :)

Yes but it should be done in a more realistic way. Not only "Show papers, stamp and off you go". I wish they could make the procuedure be like 5min or so. That way it's more realistic and you have to wait for the trucks in front of you to finish before you do. I mean, some borders may take up to days to cross with a Truck (Russia)

And deadly :lol:

I have a friend who almost died in a car crash back when he was serving in the army in Mostar.


By the way this looks similar to the road that conects Spain with Andorra:

One of my greatest grips of ETS is the small roundabouts, and general lane/junction design, we have very few motorways in the Uk for example which use a dedicated slip lane which reduces the lanes from 3 to 2, the slips are additional to the 3 or 4 lanes on the motorway and rarely reduce and then increase in lanes either side of the junction, Give way & stop lines miles behind the actual junction so if you stop you cannot actually see either side of the junction when it is clear......any improvement in this area would be most welcomed, I have already seen some improvements in pro-mods and appreciated.

Would also like to see more backroads and delivery points which are not so generic, and tougher parking.........

Great work so far.

Even for five minutes that would've made some people unhappy: despite the realism, they would like to just go through (as would anyone). We have to remember that SCS did say they wanted to maintain fluid gameplay:
Customs checks are taking place on both sides of the border line and they may take a long time to spend in a queue, which may turn out to be clashing with our desire for fluid gameplay.

I don't have the DLC yet so I don't know whether or not you can go straight through or you wait forever.

Hello dear Modbauer

What I would wish would be Schweinfurt and W├╝rzburg, since I am out of the area, I would be pleased if you could incorporate the two cities.

I personally would like more work in Italy, like a Rome rebuild.

Would be nice if the waiting queue option had a slider similar to the rain setting. That would allow you to specify how much realism you want.
Now we're on the point of realism. Not all custom offices are open 24/7. That would mean that at some crossing you have to spend the night on the parking lot..

But realism is a tricky topic and I understand why SCS had kept the realism confined to the truck and less on the environment. So we don't have seasons (no snow, but also no leafs in autumn), no birds, no litter, no traffic jams on the freeway, no bicycles or crossing pedestrians in cities. Companies have always a open slot for you to unload your cargo regardless whether you're early or late. Companies are always open, also during the night. Most distribution centers work with slots to schedule deliveries. You don't want 6 trucks to arrive at once if you only have 2 loading docks. I also never seen a AI card to drive to a red light or drive in the wrong lane or double parked cars. Never cut off my truck in order to make a exit, or fail to give way, overtake when not allowed.

Realism gets complicated fast..
