MandelSoft reviews: the ETS2 Scandinavia DLC

MandelSoft from ProMods reviews the recently published Scandinavia DLC. Is it any good and is ProMods really that great in Scandinavia? This video gives an opinion of the pros and cons of both and see how good they are holding up against each other…

(Note: this is the first time I work with a script for the commentary.  I still had to take a lot retakes on the voice recording)


I’m Maarten, 25 years old and I'm a Dutch person living abroad in Prague [CZ]. For many years have a huge interest in infrastructure related subject and I can consider myself as a “road geek going professional”, especially after I completed my MSc. Transport & Planning in 2016. I’ve joined ProMods in 2013 and I’m currently Lead Developer. Besides mapping, I create a large part of the assets ProMods is using. My goal is to give our map that touch to make it more realistic and that people can recognise the places we map from real life. I work for SCS since November 2016 as map developer for Euro Truck Simulator 2, so you can say this became more than just a hobby. My other hobbies are drawing, geofiction and composing trance music (all of which are done with help of my computer).

    Very interesting points. I liked your review. Just a question is v 1.91 compatible with the 1.17 v. Thanks and good day

  2. Mareems says:

    I said once before Promods is much better

  3. Henning Henning says:

    ProMods 1.91 is compatible with ETS2 1.17 – but you need the additional compatibility patch:

    But ProMods is currently NOT compatible with the Scandinavia DLC!

    Hey Maarten, as a fellow “Dutchie” I was wondering, can someone make something for the fans of this game AND Promods using Dutch sources.
    I would love to see some good Wolter Koops paints or Koopman car transports.
    And if that is impossible, i have lots of paint packs from almost all over Europe and Scandinavia but not a Dutch skin…. 🙁

      It is possible, but not the main focus of our team. There are many plans we want to do first. But maybe someone else on the forum is willing to do it.

    Does promods get compitable with the dlc?

  7. Alan Blundell says:

    You guys at Pro mods are the best. SCS only built Scandinavia DLC, because of the popularity of Pro Mods. You guys are the pioneers of futures maps for ETS2. I use Multiplayer ETS2, but I wish I could use the Pro Mod at the same time. Carry on the great work guys – You Are The Best!

      Not entirely true. Their plan of Scandinavia was a plan they had for a longer time. However, we did inspire them how to build their map…
