Yes, true.
I should have structured my post better. I mostly meant that in the time period where US truck companies could have gotten a foothold in Europe (1945-1965, approximatively) the European road network was of course destroyed, made of small, tight roads, and had few main roads to neighbouring countries. Freight mostly travelled by train or boat (up to the 70's). Plus, by 1949, half of Europe went Soviet, which didn't cut trade( as many people think), but severely limited it.
So in this context, there was little use for large trucks, and for short haul, European trucks did good enough.
Plus, of course, export taxes, gas price, etc... didn't favored US trucks, in addition to using imperial and using rare US parts instead of common European parts.
By the time Europe developped a solid highway network, European truck companies grew accordingly and took the market.

I recently picked this back up. Promods really is a lovely game. I hauled some fish from Ísafjörður on the Northern tip of Iceland cross the whole island to Seyðisfjörður (nasty rural roads all the way) before boarding a ferry to Denmark. From there, I hauled the fishies down to Berlin. Lovely journey.

If you do pick up Promods, I definitely recommend getting a powerful truck and venturing up to the North of Iceland. Lots of snowy dirt roads and steep drops. Very exciting drive.

You don't need to scale your truck the same for a smaller average travel.

Not necessarily, many truck usage in Europe are also cross-border traffic. There's a reason why the Netherlands, despite being rather small and transit and cycle oriented, has to make a lot of motorways.

Just download Promods. They've done all this already :mrgreen:

ProMods could still use the new assets though.

I also wonder whether SCS rebuilds the routes. Quite a number of them weren't representative of any routes.


From their videos, I think at least A7 and A10 can be considered accurate.

Disappointed that they did almost nothing to the cities themselves, aside from a new district for Hamburg.

Promods development of Germany is ongoing, but the most recent project was specifically an "Autobahn Rebuilding" project, not cities. They are volunteers spread thin across development all over Europe.

It does give some city rebuilds as well. Though not exactly every single one of them.
