The Poland Rebuilding Team

A joint project, building on a new reality

Dear ProMods users,

As you may have noticed while you were driving on ProMods 2.0, a large portion of Poland has been reconstructed. ProMods 2.0 marks a great milestone, since this is the first version where one of the most popular map addons, the Poland Rebuilding project, is fully integrated in the main ProMods map. Unlike what most people outside the Polish Euro Truck Simulator 2 community think, this map project is not a one-man project, but has a whole team behind it. Today we want you to give you an impression what happens behind the scenes, who is in the development team, the project’s history, current work and future plans.

First and foremost, we would like to highlight the excellent cooperation with other ProMods team members over the years, even in the time before the integration of the map. Both maps are meant to work complementary with each other, and their combined use was popular among the community. The full integration of both projects was only logical, and it was already planned to happen at some point.

The Poland Rebuilding project – Initially named as Map of Home Rebuilding project – is one of the few Polish projects that survived the constant patching of Euro Truck Simulator 2 by SCS in the past 3 years. These patches often come with game engine or modding changes, which can cause compatibility issues with mods, which in turn causes frustration to the mod developers in order to keep their mods compatible with the latest version of Euro Truck Simulator 2.

It all started with the Europe Rebuilding project by satan19990, to whom I would like to thank for starting this great adventure. It was at that time, I took my first steps in the editor, getting to know the tools and getting myself familiar with the rules of the game. At the same time I met another user called _PMA (I still remember this nickname quite well). It was hard working on the map, and despite all the major game changes and compatiblity issues, the Europe Rebuilding map still remained active. But this was not without struggles when updating the map to the new specifications. Due to all the problems, I even got near the point to shut down the project for a few times. Thankfully, I could still count on my friend _PMA to help me out and thanks to him I’ve learned a lot. At this point it was time for me to take over the leadership over this project under the name of ‘Poland Rebuilding’.

I would like to introduce you to our Map Makers, the people who are the working force behind the map: Czaja, Desirae, GrakuPL and MirM (the tester). They are passionately putting all their effort in recreating familiar Polish sites you can see from behind the window of your  truck. It is currently the best team with which I had the pleasure to work with. And let’s not forget about all the other people that helped us to a lesser extent, like modelers for example.

Szczecin

Our current work focuses on the Northern and Central part of Poland. With a complete overhaul of i.e. the Gdynia/Gdańsk area, some parts will be a pinnacle within the Poland Rebuilding project and ProMods in its whole. We want to appease all our fans, eagerly waiting for new cities and areas. We work from throughout Poland one area at the time. We are planning to completely rebuild Poland entirely to our own liking, and whatever the map scale allows us to do. We did encounter a delay, due to work on the full integration of this Project into ProMods 2.0, which not only improves compatibility between the two, but also allows an even more comprehensive co-operation. We hope that this integration statisfied many players and other ProMods users who may not have tried Poland Rebuilding up to this point.

I would like to thank my team and the ProMods Team for all the help and may this co-operation be beneficial for us all. I wish many kilometers of fun trucking to all the players.

    Well I for one would like to say that the combination of ProMods 2.00 and Poland Rebuilding has only enhanced what was an already brilliant map setup, I also run the latest RusMap as well in my career profile which adds up to a huge area to explore and enjoy.

    Keep up the great work, from what I have seen so far it looks really good, (I was trying to avoid using the word awesome), but it is

    Hi there from CZE,
    I just wanted to say how much appreciative of your work am I. The extent of details in this makes the experience really immersive, navigating through narrow streets of Szczeczin with a 30t excavator on your trailer is really a challenge, not to mention the construction works everywhere! Just keep up the good work!

  4. Awesome mods, I am sure that takes a lot of time!
