Today we are celebrating the second anniversary of ProMods.net! With a forever growing number of fans, over 170 000 people have joined the fun on our website, making ProMods the largest fan forum in the Euro Truck Simulator 2 community! Now is a good time to set things in retrospective to see how our humble project could grow to something this big…
ProMods started around three years ago as a two-man project between Scul and Nico. Their initial plan was to build Scandinavia for Euro Truck Simulator 2, called the Scandinavia Map. This would eventually become ProMods 1.0, which took ten months to complete. At the first release of the ProMods map, the website ProMods.net was opened to the public, exactly two years ago on this day.
Throughout the years, the team grew in size. Kutchek and MandelSoft joined quite early on after the website launched, and other team members with their own set of skills were invited and joined the team. Our current mapping team has 18 members and we are still looking for new members.
But not only did ProMods grow in size; it also grew in quality. Innovation has played a big part in the ProMods history. We don’t profilate ourselves that we try match SCS’ quality; we strive to go beyond that, to find new ways to design roads, landscapes and decoration. Pushing the boundaries, so to say. And we will keep on doing that to give you an increasingly better map.
We are more than just a map mod; we are a modding platform and a community. Our forums are full of activity of our fans and we even have recruited some of our developers on the forum that convinced us about the quality of their work. We have merged the Italy Addon mod in ProMods and Poland Rebuilding will be fully integrated into ProMods 2.0 in the future.
Therefore, we would like to thank our team members for all their effort and countless of hours they have put in the map to make it the map that it is today. We would also like to thank our moderators that keep our forums tidy and under control. We would like to thank our beta testers for their efforts to catch bugs for us to solve before the public has to deal with them…
But most of all, we would like to thank all of our fans that supported us, follow our work and that help other players out when they are having problems with Euro Truck Simulator 2, ProMods or any other mod. Without you, ProMods could never have become this big. As a little gift, we will add a special ProMods 2nd Anniversary truck skin for the Mercedes New Actros and the ProMods 2nd Anniversary trailer for you to drive with. You can pick it up from here.
ProMods is not just a map. It’s a community!
