What do you think about DLC 'Road to the Black Sea?'

SCS Software just released a video of 'Road to the Black Sea' due out this year. The countries that appear are Romania, Bulgaria, and Western Turkey. To be honest, I think Romania would like to be merged into SCS DLC data. It's too old because Romania was released in the 2.0 version. I think that Bulgaria can't help but be merged by SCS DLC data. I'm betting on Western Turkey. I wonder what the E80 section will look like when the first line of Asian Highway 1(AH1), which will lead from From Turkey, India, Vietnam, China, Republic of Korea(Gyeongbu Expressway(Seoul-Busan Highway)) to Tokyo, Japan :D

its ok.. its seem Ukraine/Moldova and maybe some part or Russia will be part of some future DLC... well see :)

Yes, promods Romania and most part of Bulgaria is very old.. and it seem that this part of map will be replaced with DLC content..

I welcome it. Promods Romania is in need of updating and Turkey being a long waited addition to the game is finally coming. Unfortunately we will loose Bulgaria, but fortunately not much will be lost since Bulgaria is from complete.

I was expecting more countries to be included, but maybe SCS avoided the rest of the Balkans due to politics?

I think SCS avoided releasing Balkan DLC because of 'THAT'. I think that's why ProMods didn't add 'THAT country' to their 2.30 version.

anyway, good to see that Turkey and Istanbul will appear in the game, very good news ! And yes ProMods Romania will certainly be replaced by the new SCS one.

ProMods 2.40 was sort of a.... what to come.
Similar was with Italy years ago, tbh.

Why not whole Balkans at once?
Maybe due to... Size.
Whole Balkans would have been massive. 780 000 km², if I remember right, I have the numbers somewhere.
Bulgaria: 110 879 km²
Romania: 238 391 km²
Easth Thrace: 23 764 km²
Total: 373 034 km²
Not quite half of the area, but almost.

Oops... I forget.
What I think?
Awesome!

My only hope now is that they have my hometown of Ruse in the DLC, otherwise I'll need to nag the Merger team to add it. :lol:
The banner image is already a positive as it shows the Ruse-Giurgiu bridge. This is great, as the one in Promods was always just a simple lame bridge, not the epic monstroucity it is IRL.
The trailer also showed Veliko Turnovo, a beautiful city (that at one point was worked on by Promods). Question is: scenic or visitable?
