ProMods 2.60 Previews: Poland & Lithuania

Welcome to another ProMods 2.60 Preview! Here you will see the newest development from Poland and Lithuania. In the 2.60 update these two countries will each receive a new city.

First, we’ll talk about Poland. In the following update you will discover the city of Mrągowo. Our developer scan720 worked hard to bring this city and its surroundings into the game. Other than that he has also rebuilt almost 150 km of the DK16 as far as Olsztyn and the new S16. The full Olsztyn ring road might follow in the future.

Mrągowo is a small city in north-eastern Poland, and the capital of Mrągowo County, with a population of 21,302. It is located in the middle of Warmian-Masurian voivodeship and is surrounded by lots of small lakes. The city center is full of beautiful historic buildings and while in the north of the city you will find lots of huge hilly fields, in the south you will find big forests.

Scan720 has some more details:

Mrągowo was no easy city to make, it was a challenge. One of the hardest parts was bringing all relevant things into this small area in-game, due to the scale of 1:19.
Especially the city centre with its layout and buildings made this part of this project time consuming. Other than that, this city has a lot of similarities with the city in real life! I am still very proud of how I did the roundabout and the railway junction. Especially the custom made models from our great modeller flintstone1973 make a big difference here. And I want to thank Dawid2849 for his great Polish signs at the S16 Olsztyn Wschód Interchange. And of course I have not forgotten that the S16 is currently being built from Mrągowo to Olsztyn. But this part will probably open in 2023. So I still have enough time to extend that road.

Mrągowo features the well known polish milk company Mlekpol. We made this company as real as possible in-game with custom prefabs and models.

Between Mrągowo and Olsztyn, there is also one small scenery village: Marcinkowo. This village fits perfectly with its beautiful landscape around it and has that “Polish spirit”.

After visiting Marcinkowo, following the DK16 westwards you’ll finally reach the newly opened S16 til Olsztyn Wschód. Scan720 tried to make this road and landscape as realistic as possible, as you can see in the real-life comparisons.

Now let’s move on to another highlight of the blog – Lithuania. In this version, Tauragė is making a comeback after reconstruction, not to mention additional content that is heading your way.

Tauragė is an important small city in western Lithuania, and the capital of Tauragė County, with a modest population of 21,520. Whilst the city was mentioned in the year 1507, the town privileges were granted only in 1924. Besides its historical value, today it is home to several factories in the city and its home county which you will be able to visit, but also major international highway and nearby border crossing that foster the city’s importance to the country.

Brand-new roads are also making an appearance – the KK141 & KK147 picturesque route that traverses next to the mighty Nemunas river and provides a direct connection to Lithuania’s second largest city, Kaunas, therefore providing more opportunities to avoid driving on the motorway.

A famous junction, named Kryžkalnis, has also come to our attention. It has received drastic changes, such as the Orlen fuel station, and a variety of touch-ups, such as signage, road cracks and dirt to ensure a realistic aesthetic of the area as compared to the real-world.

Driving eastwards, we encounter another major enhancement to the road network of Lithuania – the inclusion of Sitkūnai junction and a missing section of the A8/E67 highway, for a realistic and direct journey via the E67 international highway towards/from Riga. This will ensure that drivers will no longer need to use the KK222, a road of local importance and not suitable for international trucking.

On that note, it is time to end. Thanks for reading this week’s preview, and we’ll see you again for the next one.

ProMods 2.50 Previews: Baltics

Welcome to this week’s preview, which focuses on the Baltics. ProMods 2.50 sees the return of more pre-Baltic DLC areas that have been upgraded or even completely rebuilt, as well as changes to reflect road upgrades only recently carried out in the real world.


Returning to Estonia is the island of Saaremaa and the connections to the existing road network on the mainland. Our Estonian developer martinusK is working hard to rebuild old ProMods areas in Estonia to today’s standards, so that they integrate well with the Baltic DLC content. He has this to say about the area:

“Estonia’s always stood firm by its naval heritage and what better example of it than the Western Estonian archipelago. Saaremaa, once home to our very own Vikings (Oeselians), has always had a distinct, although still strongly Estonian identity. Its people are tough and as history has shown, quite rebellious, surely being hardened by the Kaali meteorite strike in 1500BC. Saaremaa will have a total of six scenery or functional ports, and several companies are also navally oriented. The island will also have some of the smallest roads in Estonia, surrounded by typical thick pine forests – not that the Saaremaa-native reigning World Rally Champion would’ve been slowed down by that.
Personally: although I’ve lived my whole life on the mainland, Saaremaa will always be a special place for me. After all, I even get funny looks by my mates for speaking the dialect!”


Now on to Lithuania, where developer Horizon has been busy. Panevėžys, locally known as the capital of Aukštaitija, has recently upgraded the A17 highway, which acts as an international freight and travel corridor through the Baltic States as part of the E67 route between Prague and Helsinki. A majority of the work by SCS has been replaced to provide a more true-to-life rendition of the highway in the world of ETS2. As in the real world, configurations of 2+1 lanes were added (commonly seen in Sweden), as well as turbo roundabouts, of which there are only a few examples in the ProMods map. Lastly, the addition of three new companies to the city will enhance the game economy.

Also making a return is the Curonian Spit. Horizon provides the following details:

“The Curonian Spit: Lithuania’s most attractive tourist hotspot due to its nature, beaches and UNESCO World Heritage Site of fascinating sand-dunes that stretch across the thin landmass. In the world of ETS2, you will be able to drive across from the city of Klaipėda to traverse this piece of land and the coastal village of Juodkrantė.”

“The comeback of the Curonian spit will feature a mix of refurbished and brand-new sections built under new standards, in addition to completely changed ferry locations from past versions. On both sides of the ferry crossing, I have replicated the port as closely as possible to the real-world, for e.g. the current renovations, in addition to changing part of the city and its layout to get sophisticated results.”

Kaliningrad Oblast

Of course, the Curonian Spit is shared between Lithuania and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad Oblast. Vladzz-G has upgraded the connection from the border to Kaliningrad, via the town of Zelenogradsk, with assets from the Baltic DLC, restoring another area that was originally released in ProMods 2.10.

As always, thanks for reading and sharing this preview. There is still plenty more to come, so keep your eyes peeled for the next one!

ProMods 2.40 With Merged Baltics is Available Now!

Finally we have finished the merge of the new Beyond the Baltic Sea DLC with ProMods and now you can enjoy this new DLC together with our mod. This new version will therefore require users to have the new Beyond the Baltic Sea DLC installed to use it.

In this version, about 30 cities were added or improved in Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, and Sweden. We also worked on many roads and landscapes in different countries.

To reduce the files size and clean up our mod, we removed some old prefabs and models which were no longer in use or where better versions are available now. So if you use other maps in combination with ProMods, there’s a change that these add-on maps may be broken and require an update themself.


We have decided to release version 2.40 for ETS 2 build 1.34 as that is the current and official version. ProMods 2.40 brings in the Beyond the Baltic Sea DLC content and has been in development for quite a while now, so we did not want to withhold release any longer. It may take up to a month for SCS to release build 1.35, which will render this version INCOMPATIBLE.

It is your personal decision whether you want to access the new 2.40 content now, or if you wish to spare your €1 and wait until the next ProMods update will be released, which will support 1.35. This is likely to be at least six weeks away, and even more likely to be even longer to fully get all 1.35 content back in ProMods.

You can always roll back your game version in the Steam Library properties selecting “temporary_1_34 – 1.34.x for incompatible mods” – when 1.35 is out.
