A few of my favorite sites / items

ETS2 is a great truck driving simulator with elements of running a haulage business thrown in.

A few of my favorite sites / items

First up, "Hungary Map" ( http://ets2downloads.com/maps/hungary-map ) this is totally separate from the main game map. It requires a new profile to enable it to be used, and has a slightly different way of activating the mod vs other ones. It's not totally perfect, i.e the odd invisible wall in places where you wouldn't expect it but they can be driven around. Totally different feel compared to the UK / Europe map provided with the game, and also the mileage is more realistic, i.e it will take you a few minutes to complete one mile vs one minute per mile. Okay, it might not be one minute per mile in the game but those familiar with it will know what I mean.

Next, World of Trucks ( https://www.worldoftrucks.com ), whilst not a resource as such it's a handy place other than Steam for uploading screenshots to & making a custom number plate if you so wish. My profile - https://www.worldoftrucks.com/en/online ... p?id=15584


For some general "mods" http://www.modsaholic.com/forums/index. ... simulator/ a useful site with lots of items - of course all mods are installed at your own risk!

Finally a Youtube account that covers all things "Sim" DaSquirrelsNuts ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSeb5K ... 0WwEjUzM_A ) "Squirrel" also has a 'Twitch' livestream usually on the weekend where he'll stream games and these are usually advertised on the Youtube channel.


Hopefully these will be useful to some, and if you've got any more to share then it's always appreciated. :)

In the current Hungary Map mod there are a number of modified truck liveries, static models and buses / coaches more varied, however it's not in the 'default' game (including the Going East Expansion).

I suppose the best option for modifying vehicles in the default game would be the mods by "JazzyCat". Have a look at this video:
http://www.youtube.com/v/W1MLb7OQnrI

Links to the modifications are provided in the video info with a correct installation procedure. (By watching on YouTube itself)

It becomes clear in that video (or may have been a later one) that one of the newer game updates broke some of the rendering with the mods, but MAY have been fixed since that was uploaded.

Generally speaking, I'm happy with having all the modded items belonging to a map (such as Hungary) and then if an update breaks something I can still play the default game without issue until the mods are fixed again. Broken mods do seem rare though..
