 This is  the main version for now.

-new redendering values, no more landscape pop-up for the entire map; (main update) - now you can enjoy the full panorama.
-2 new towns: Chisinau and Balti from Moldova Republic
-first steps in design improvements: removed part of low-res vegetation, reworked some roads, crosses, signs, vehicle and ambiental lights, city detail, buildings or even some missplacements.
This is gonna be work in progress for some time (always something to improve)  but also the map expansion towards new territories.
-decent spawning frequency for romanian cars, no more police problem (sience last version)
-removed any traffic file from the map to avoid ( in some cases) the need to create a new profile. (i dont know a solution, i never experienced that and also i never seen a LOG file in that situation).

There is a separate folder with all the fixes for SR and also the custom ferry-connection with my map, available in a separate link.

ROMANIA EXTENDED 1.0 [1.30.XX]




This is a complete map of Romania with 42 cities, as i've promise, all the main cities from every county.
Keep in mind, very important, 35 days to complete this.
I didnt have much time for testing.
Please, any problem you will find, post it here!
The art critics can go to take a loooong hike.
The map will be updated only in "beauty" departament (still alot of work to do), no room for more cities.

All the cities are fully operational with companies and garages to start the game in.
All cities are are brand new, no copy/paste was used (what's the point?). Some are big, some not.

The map was tested alone
or with TSM and RusMap together and it's working fine. NO additional file needed.
The Southern Region works also probably. For SR you can use also the Constanta-Ferry package for Promods, i have a ferry active in Constanta too.
Not Promods compatible.
The load order it's in the downloaded package.
And also keep in mind this has less than 170MB!

DOWNLOAD
Special thanks to Todor Alin for materials and support.
Special thanks to FLD for his excelent models and prefabs.

LOG 1.0
-fixed zoom for map view, no more shifting. If you have my mod SuperZoom, it's not needed anymore, it's in the map files.
-reworked Oradea entrance intersection, the GPS will use this route.
-added tunnel lights to highway tunnel near Sibiu
-all the missplacements reported are fixed.

LOG 0.9 BETA + 0.9a BETA
-removed the gate from Brasov-Tradeaux, a prefab bug; and from Baia Mare, this old prefabs are a pain in the...
-corected the romanian police spawn ratio (again, thanks to Alin)
-corrected the font files for cars and police cars (also Alin's hand)
I did some deliveries and no other problem was found, but i am just one. I expect feedback.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


All DLC map needed! WHY?!?!
For this reason:
Every DLC has new prefabs and materials in it: buildings, roads, vegetation….When you build a map you look to create diversity and for that you need options to choose.
You don’t want a city with a sigle type of apartments building or all the cities to look the same.
This is why we need DLC’s, for new materials they bring. And to play a map with those materials you need that DLC too.

A quick update

Sorry to not posting for a few days but i was cut in a working fever on this project named ROMANIA EXTENDED. I forget to tell you to keep an eye on SCS forum for my thread about this :

SCS FORUM ABOUT ROMANIA EXTENDED  

The rate of the developement it's going like crazy, for now all the main cities for yellow counties are ready to launch.
 More than 23 cities are finished. I intend to release the first version off the complete romanian territory before the end of february. Tight deadline. Will see. Pictures from this map are available on SCS forum, make sure you read all the pages there. Thanks for visiting and keep in touch.

Romania Extended (for vanilla)

Apart from my personal project, Europe Extended Map, i've decided to use some of my material and rehash Romania. The reason?
Well, there are two options when you want to start your game in romanian cities: either use Promods or use Europe Extended. That means you have to use a map package. What about the vanilla game? Nothing.
MIRFI is working on his map of Romania, my respect for that but i'm sick about all the same 10-12 "big" cities of Romania and alot of road around them. The "big" cities are not even that big in Promods for example.
SO....

This is my Romania Rehash Project, a romanian map that will make any romanian happy, not just ones from Cluj or Bucharest.  This will include (atleast) all the cities "county residence" (CR - resedinte de judet).
This will work with any map that not include Romania: TSM, RusMap and so on.
The material used it's JUST SCS and some FLD models (big thanks for that).
This is what i finished until today (started last week):
All the cities are fully operational with companies and garages to start the game in.
Tg-Jiu, Arad and Timisoara are imported from my work in Europe Extended, the rest are brand new.
I hope the next week-end i will able to release the west half of Romania with many CR as possible.
I know there is a big city quantity. As for quality, judge for yourself when you try the map.

Europe Extended Map 1.1

This is Europe Extended Map 1.1. for 1.30 all DLC.

 If you are not aware about this map, a short presentation from first version:
Arayas Europe Extended Map
 
 This is a branch from Mario Map, Europe version of the map, with an extension in North Africa and Middle East. This was cleaned and transform to a normal version of Europe and

surroundings.
Includes places like Russia, Turkey, Balkan Peninsula, Egypt, Island and so on.
You dont need 7 maps and 14 road connection files to have a decent game. One it's enough.
And it has oversized and heavy cargo too.

LOG:
All cities are connected for transport by road, except the ones who need a normal and natural ferry connection. 

All abusive ferry and airport connections are removed.(a big problem in Mario)
The american maps or other exotic maps are NOT in this package.(another problem in Mario)
I added new road texture, new normal economy, and part of my work,
like Soft Superlights, Normal Virtual Mirrors, Police ON, Loading Screens (normal) and few tweaks i use on my game.

Future developement of this map will be provided.


This map it's huge and it's not compatible with any other map. If you want map details about coverage, see the video 

The original files are credited to Mario Map makers
(and probably TSM and Promods teams or any other original creators).

Now, about Europe Extended Romanian Edition.

The romanian territory was empty and that was a problem not only for romanian players, but for transit also, having to go around many kilometers for a delivery.
It was like this


This is Romania Expansion with 12 romanian cities, most of them a premiere for ETS2. The ones with (r) are rebuilded from existing cities in the map, not an easy thing though. The rest are builded by me from zero.
We have Arad, Timisoara, Dr. Tr. Severin, Craiova, Targu-Jiu, Rm. Valcea, Bucuresti (r), Constanta, Oradea (r), Cluj(r), Bacau(r) and Focsani(r), all eligible for game starting city.

There are 3 road connections with Hungary, 2 with Ukraine, one with Moldavia, 3 with Bulgaria,
2 with Serbia and a ferry connection from Constanta to Odessa. 12 ways to connect to the rest of the map. This will connect Balkan Peninsula to Europe in a natural way.
The map it's not 100% corect speaking from geography point of view, because the original map was already over some romanian territories, but it's close.


INSTALLATION
1. For version 1 users:
Download just the update package from HERE (227 mb)
Unzip the archive and you will have 2 SCS files. 
Copy them in MOD folder to overwrite the old ones. 
DELETE MOZOROV map file, it's now included in main map.
 If you are using version 1.0, finish your delivery, save, load the update and go on with your profile.

Thats all.

2.For new users:
Download the map:

Warning! It's a multizip file, you need all 4 files to start unpacking! 
Unpack and you will have 8 SCS files. Move them to MOD folder.
Open the game, make a new profile and in MOD MANAGER click them in order, from 1 to 8.
You will have the folowing order in mod manager:
8
7
6
5
4
3
2
1
This is the way to do it.
That's it. Let the game cache the map at first start (about 1/2 hour) and after that in 2 minutes it's on.
Have fun.
This is a short video presentation of new territories:

This is my test delivery from Dr.Tr.Severin to Rm.Valcea, after that some prefabs have been replaced:


And some photos:
