ProMods 2.60 Previews: Iceland

In this week’s preview we take a look at the new and rebuilt content coming to Iceland in ProMods 2.60, which includes the most brand-new content in Iceland since ProMods 2.10 way back in 2016. Developer DOWL has worked for over a year to build 300 km of new roads to drive as well as continuing to refresh older parts of the island.

The largest area of all-new content to explore is the stunning Snæfellsnes Peninsula which extends 75km out towards Greenland on the western side of Iceland. It has been dubbed ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to the dramatically varied scenery including mountains, grasslands, lakes, fjords, and volcanoes such as the mighty 1,446 metre Snæfellsjökull.

Enjoy the drive along road 54 to the end of the peninsula and the historic fishing and trading settlement of Ólafsvík where you can find a number of fisheries needing your help to deliver new supplies and ship their products out of town. Tourists will enjoy the hiking trails into the mountains and the long sandy beaches.

Further up the north coast of Snæfellsnes lies the port town of Stykkishólmur with its picturesque harbour and the Súgandisey Island Lighthouse sitting atop the cliffs. The port serves the car/passenger ferry to the island of Flatey and to Brjánslækur on the Westfjords. As is often the case in Snæfellsnes, rugged mountains rise up from the coast and continue inland.

With such small populations and little traffic, the region has little incentive to pave all of its roads. The 54 along the north coast is unpaved for much of the route, twisting its way along the coast, while road 55 climbs over the highlands, connecting the north and south sides of the peninsula.

Meanwhile, a new route has been added in the Westfjords, allowing you to make the trip to the remote hamlet of Norðurfjörður at the end of the perilous and narrow road 643. Supplies are much needed in the winter and so it is up to you to ensure they arrive safely. Make sure you go prepared for the conditions you may face.

Elsewhere you can look forward to a refreshed Blönduós, an important town on the Hringvegur (Road 1) where you can stop for fuel and repairs, as well as delivering goods to and from the shop and port companies. Gone are many older assets, replaced with higher quality ones to make the town feel up to date.

That’s all for Iceland in 2.60, who knows what the future may hold for this unique island in ProMods.

ProMods 2.50 Previews: Iceland

Welcome to the second ProMods 2.50 Preview. This week we take a look at the improvements and new content in Iceland. Despite only starting in February, our new Iceland developer DOWL has made some excellent progress which we are excited to share with you.

As one of the few regions of Iceland not to have received substantial upgrades since its first iteration back in ProMods 1.9, it was high time that the capital Reykjavík was rebuilt using newer assets and techniques, making it feel much closer to the real thing. All the old prefab junctions have been replaced and the signage has been given a major overhaul.

In addition to a rebuild, Keflavík – Iceland’s main international airport – has been moved to the correct location so now you can enjoy a longer drive on the road between the airport and the capital. Two new towns have also been added: Grindavík has a petrol station and a small hotel while Þorlákshöfn has a harbour for you to deliver boats to. New roads connect these towns to Keflavík and Selfoss so you can explore the vast wilderness of Iceland’s Southern Peninsula.

Sections of the ring road between Höfn and Reykjavík have been updated with Höfn, Vík and Hella getting a refresh with new assets.

It’s not just an improved map you can look forward to in 2.50. You now receive HUD messages when entering a new region, a feature we have started adding to multiple countries. Furthermore, several companies have been added or reworked, plus there’s one other new feature we haven’t mentioned that you will have to wait to discover for yourself.

DOWL plans to keep improving and expanding Iceland, so hopefully there will be more to come in updates beyond 2.50. You can keep up with the latest developments in the forum thread. That’s all for now though – we’ll see you for the next preview.
