ProMods 2.16 – Compatibility update for ETS2 1.27 is available now!

We are working hard towards ProMods 2.20 which will once again introduce a wide variety of new landscapes and infrastructure into the mod. However, complications due to the situation in Poland mean that its release is some way off yet.

In the meantime, this compatibility update is necessary for the current ProMods map to work with Euro Truck Simulator 2 version 1.27. It requires all three map DLCs: “Going East!”, “Scandinavia”, and “Vive la France !”. There will be no future versions of the mod that do not require all of these DLCs.

Over 10,000 of our models have been converted to the new format required for ETS2 1.27. Fortunately most of this could be done in batches, but some models required greater attention. At the same time, we are reviewing the models from Poland Rebuilding, some of which are rarely used and poorly optimised so can be removed or replaced. This process will take much longer to complete, but should improve the efficiency of our mod over time.

2.16 also showcases the first of many improvements to the map in Poland. You can enjoy a rebuilt Siedlce and various overhauls of interchanges and delivery points elsewhere.

Luxembourg

Furthermore, we highlight some of the smaller bonus changes. We have several rebuilding projects, but as modding techniques progress some improvements can be implemented earlier, before the full rebuild. These “lite” rebuilds generally get rid of pet peeves (like single-lane highway interchanges or old signs and terrain textures) and can be done in a short amount of time. A demonstration of this can be found in Luxembourg and around Prague in the Czech Republic, where 6 single-lane interchanges have been replaced.

You’ll find more tasters of 2.20 in other countries: two roads were extended in Italy, while in France Cherbourg has returned to the mod and Metz has been rebuilt – both with many assets from the “Vive la France !” DLC to fit in with the surrounding mapping style. And as optimisation techniques improve, parts of Manresa and Barcelona have been overhauled to improve performance. Without a complete rebuild these older areas of Spain will never perform as well as those coming in 2.20 and beyond, but we continue to do what we can to reduce lagging.

Police Cars of Finland, Liechtenstein, Estonia and Serbia

Finally, thanks to some excellent teamwork we are proud to include AI police cars for all countries introduced by ProMods to complement those added by SCS in ETS2 1.27 for all vanilla countries. This was only possible with Jazzycat’s permission for us to use some of his vehicles, and PirriAND’s permission for us to use his skin for the Andorran police car. Our special thanks go out to them.

We have also released compatibility updates for the ProMods Add-ons “Trailer & Company Pack” and “Cabin Accessories Pack” a few days earlier. Both updates are pure compatibility patches without any new content.

Compatibility Update for ETS2 1.25

The changes in the latest game update to Euro Truck Simulator 2 version 1.25 require a compatibility update of ProMods. We’re proud to provide you ProMods 2.11 only a few days after the release of the game update:

ProMods 2.11 is just a compatibility update for ETS2 1.25 and contains no new areas. In addition to the bugfixes included in this version, we enhanced the licence plates for some countries:

License Plates - Russia License Plates - Belarus

ProMods 2.03 and Trailer Pack 1.10 are available now!

After much anticipation, we have two new updates available for download!

ProMods 2.03

With ProMods version 2.03, we are finally compatible with the ETS2 1.24 patch. We have also fixed many bugs that had been found in the previous version of ProMods, so you may enjoy a more refined experience.

Don’t forget: You should remove the previous ProMods hotfix and all other files regarding the previous version of ProMods.

You must own the Going East! DLC as well as the Scandinavia DLC in order for ProMods 2.03 to work, and note it is compatible with ETS2 version 1.24 only – so it will NOT work with ETS2 1.23 and lower.

We provide a file testing tool for those who are struggling with the multi-part 7-zip archives. You can find the tool on the download page. The archive contains some instructions if you need them. This tool will check the integrity of the packages and will alert you if your packages were corrupted during the download.

Trailer & Company Pack 1.10

After a long wait, the official Trailer & Company Pack has been updated to version 1.10! With this update, you can expect compatibility with ETS2 patch 1.24 and ProMods 2.03. We have heard your bug reports from the previous release of the trailer pack, and we have made sure that those issues have been fixed this time.

Please note, the trailer pack comes with 2 DEF files. Please DELETE the def file that you do NOT want to use.

You can choose to either:
A) Use the pack as a stand-alone pack (no trailers will be replaced, you will get all new trailers additionally)
or
B) Use the pack as a replacement pack (all default trailers will be replaced by ProMods)

ProMods 2.02 – Compatibility update for ETS2 1.23 is available now!

The update to Euro Truck Simulator 2 version 1.23 changed some map assets and mechanisms, which caused ProMods to crash at several locations and led to broken navigation on many jobs. With this update we’ve made our mod compatible with the latest version of your favourite simulator.

Version 2.02

As a bonus, we added some new content all over the map for you to enjoy. But it’s up to you to discover the new or enhanced places.

You must own the Going East! DLC as well as the Scandinavia DLC in order for ProMods 2.02 to work, and note it is compatible with ETS2 version 1.23 only – so it will NOT work with ETS2 1.22 and lower.

Update: Hotfix 3

During the past few days, we have recieved fatal bug reports in areas that were thoroughly tested before, but gave problems in ETS2 1.23. Since these bugs could be fixed quite quickly once identified and are easy to isolate, we decided to release a hotfix:

Download Hotfix 3

The following issues are fixed:

  • Crashes to Desktop in Rīga, Bucuresţi and Egilsstaðir related to prefabs
  • Possible CTD fixes for München and Köln (not tested yet!)
  • Invisible wall at Køge-Vest (E20×E47)
  • Invisible wall at the A20 near Toulouse
  • Invisible wall at Jyväskylä
  • Graphical bugs in Jyväskylä
  • Fixes in Szczecin and Łódź
  • Added a gas station in Lithuania on the A8
  • Fixed some stupid bugs caused by Hotfix 2

Note that this hotfix must be placed on top of the Mod Manager, above all other ProMods files!

ProMods 2.01 is now available!

The release of ProMods 2.00 was the biggest step in the history of our map mod. We added several new countries and cities, and we finally included the Poland Rebuilding project as an integral part of our map. Unfortunately, such huge projects have a high risk of bugs being undetected, even with an intense beta phase. What is even worse is that fixed bugs can find their way back into the final public release version – as happened with the game crashes in Romania.

So we worked hard on the current update and fixed 873 bugs that were reported in earlier versions. And as a bonus, we included some new and enhanced areas in Iceland and a reworked French/Spanish border in this version. Furthermore, there are a few other minor enhancements we would like to keep as a surprise.

With ProMods 2.01, we now have added a file testing tool for those who are struggling with the multi-part 7-zip archives. You can find the tool on the download page and the archive contains some instructions if you need them. This tool will check the integrity of the packages and will tell you if your packages are damaged or not after the download.

Download Current Version

You must own the Going East DLC as well as the Scandinavia DLC in order for ProMods to work.

ProMods 1.97 is released!

Bit of a late update, but despite that, we’re happy that ProMods 1.97 is released and that most users are using this version with no problems!

Apart from allowing ProMods to work with Euro Truck Simulator 1.20, which is the latest version, ProMods 1.97 fixes many bugs that were reported in earlier versions. However, as with ProMods 1.96, you must own the Going East! DLC as well as the Scandinavian DLC in order for ProMods to work.

With ProMods 1.97, we decided to release a new method of downloading and extracting the files. These files, because they are uncompressed, they do take up more space on your hard drive. However, the mod now takes less than 1 GB to download, benefiting the Payloadz users, as they can get the mod with one single file again. Then, there’s the extracting process. We’ve fitted a self-extracting application. This application, when running, will automatically extract all the files in the archives, which makes the whole process easier for everyone. It is only needed for extracting, and can be deleted once the extraction has finished.

To download ProMods 1.97, click here. However, make sure you follow the tutorial in order to avoid any downloading/installing issues. The tutorial can be also found translated in 21 languages; select the language forum and click the locked topic in the first page. If you do have any issues, please post them here with your game.log.txt file.

Best regards,
Your ProMods team

Scandinavia DLC Teaser

The trailer for SCS’s DLC looks amazing. However this DLC will prove to be one of the biggest headaches here at ProMods.

We already saw alot of the DLC’s development over the last months and had access to it for some time as well. Still we can’t yet start on adding it to ProMods, as SCS will keep changing alot of things in the course of their beta testing. Every build can have numerous fixes in the map, signs etc etc. So we need to wait for SCS to release the DLC before we can even start with adding it to ProMods. And that is not even the start…

… Because we, as ProMods, have been updating our Scandinavia constantly. Some of our parts are very old and starting to get outdated (Norway for example). Other parts are fresh and new (Stockholm and Jutland). So we now need to decide what we want to keep. We weren’t overly impressed with SCS Denmark, so that is an area we could keep from the ProMods map. However, in Denmark, there are still cities which are very outdated because the majority were build in ProMods 1.0, back at the start of 2013!

Stockholm will be a huge headache as well. Our city is a lot truer to life than the SCS counterpart, but their Scania factory is a lot better than ours. And then there’s the matter of the Scania test track.

All these decisions and having to wait to make them, will only ensure ProMods won’t be updated soon after the release of the Going North DLC. Our users will have to be patient. They either going to have to play ProMods on an older version of the game, without the DLC, or they can start exploring the DLC without ProMods and wait for us to release our improvements.

As always we can’t predict a timeframe/release date. It will be ready when it’s ready, but we estimate 2 – 6 months to get our map adjusted to the DLC.

Update of ProMods 1.91 Available!

ProMods 1.91

We updated our map with version 1.91 to fix several bugs and issues like inactive tollgates, vanishing AI and invisible walls. The crash at the truck dealer in Valga and the Liechtenstein license plates have been fixed, just as many minor fixes all over the map.

In addition, we added new effects to streetlights: They now are amber coloured instead of white.

You can download the updated version from our download site. And don’t forget to generate a new DEF file, since we made some changes there too!
