I'm more a fan of country roads myself. The game is about driving from A to B through beautiful countries.
I'm not really a fan of city centers.

Not much time is spend there anyhow, for me it's lost developing time. Better spend that time on the country roads.

Authentic cities, yes please. But not too much city centers where trucks don't go anyway.
Trucks most of the time stay in the industrial area. So that's more important to make then city centers.

Well i really miss only one town centre from Promods in DLC Baltics and it's Helsinky. In promods it had so bad city ring with old interchanges that i really hated when traveled there, but town center was so beautiful that it was my second most popular city in the game(after original St.Petersburg from Rusmap). Others cities in DLC i think are fine, i don't really need town centre there.

Exactly, the majority of game time is spent traveling between cities. Sure it's nice to have something like Promods London, even though there are routes through the centre where full artics can go most truck drivers will avoid it unless they are delivering something there.

Promods version of Valencia seems to get this right as the surrounding roads are pretty recognisable but then you don't go anywhere near the centre.

I think the DLC is better than Promods version of the Baltics, which apart from some of the towns was pretty bland. I'm not a local though and the only place I've visited was Lithuania so I wouldn't notice if road signs were out of place or whatever.

Promods southern Finland is probably the worst spot of the map, however this is understandable due to it's age.

Regarding Helsinki:
Helsinki - Access Regulation

Key:
orange – areas where lorries over 12 meters are forbidden
red lines – recommended routes between Vuosaari harbour and main roads
grey lines – recommended routes between passenger harbours and main roads
ETS 2 Baltic DLC is quite correct.
And it could be a bit troublesome to shoehorn in Eteläsatama and Katajanokka harbours into the map.

Frankly speaking, I am sorry there's no city road running through Helsinki. Of all occasion, the warehouse and service center is located on the east side of the Ring III. Even more Helsinki port accessibility is much worse than other cities because it has to go too far around by Ring III, so I want ProMods rebuild SCS Helsinki like rebuilt Milano by ProMods in 2.30.
