IMO Norway is the best place in the Scandinavian DLC, its like the devs put the most effort into it since it was probably built after Denmark (which is the least impressive due to lack of Aarhus and custom junctions) and Sweden (some parts are very nice but other less so with a few realism issues eg. Essingeleden in Stockholm needs 2 more lanes in both directions). The way they designed the roads and landscape in Norway really feels like you are in Norway and make sure you visit some the hidden back roads. It is also the most accurate in terms of road sign layout as well as road markings. Overall as you drive it feels great each country does have its own feel and all the new companies and drop off location are good fun the new quarry prefabs are great in particular the roads to the quarry in Stavanger. all in all great purchase and did I mention the fact they have hidden quite a few roads that are driveable and fully built, keep an eye out! I have found a lovely small narrow road network in Norway already and | only bought the DLC yesterday (I did binge tho :P). :)

Thanks for your answer. Definetely makes me want to buy it now.:)

No problem! :) ETS2 1.18 is out of beta now, so expect to see ETS2MP updated soon with the New Actros.

My whole forum life started on ETS2.

If anyone goes on the Multiplayer forums you will have definitely heard of me. I'm the one that makes the mods there :D

Had a bit of journey from Iceland to poland, but my delivery point was one for the books for good practice for skilled drivers. No joke. 

Images in spoiler. :)

I never knew droplets of rain could appear so realistic...

(Look on my left hand window for the droplets-Steam stuffed up the screenshot.)

Anyhoo, I started a new game and now I am in possession of a MB New Actros, en-route from Hamburg to Dortmund with an excavator in tow. Gives me something to do while I wait for Batman: Arkham Knight to download.

New update for ETS2 made a grand appearance today-adds clicking sounds to turn indicators and various switches within trucks, and also adds two new locales within Hungary (that is, if you have Going East! installed). Went and did a few odd jobs in my New Actros-handles very well and can carry most stuff with ease. Also got around to repainting the beast into my usual red/white/yellow colouring:

Finally started playing. Sorry bout the link image wont work for some reason http://oi58.tinypic.com/25zjn5x.jpg

It should work if you do this: Click on Insert other media --> Insert image from URL, paste the url in, and then click "Insert image into post"-should hopefully work like a charm.

Managed to pass an in-game rendition of TGV 001 this afternoon while driving through France. The real thing was an ancestor to today's world-famous French express train type and unlike its ancestors was powered by a gas-turbine engine. (The real thing is also-like its ETS2 rendition-parked near the A4 motorway in Bischheim, France):

Just in case nobody knows yet, there is a new server based in Singapore.

Tried it out and shaved my ping clean in half (150ms compared to 300ms in EU #1)

Went into ETS2MP about a month back, and compared to what it was like when it launched - it is infinitely better.

Because it's linked to your Steam account, being banned means you need to buy a new copy (I'd have thought), so all the jeb ends have been slowly filtered out. I can go on there now safe in the knowledge that the only time someone will collide with me is if they're just not that good a driver.

I remember that 9 times out of 10 if I was overtaken, the mouth-breather doing the passing would cut-in to make a point and I'd end up on my side in a ditch. Implementing a reasonable speed limit (I don't know what it is but I drive at 90 and rarely get overtaken by more than a few kmh) means that keyboard scania drivers don't crash into you out of lack of control at 200kmh.

Driver behaviour has been a major improvement, but I'm also impressed at the much better sync.

Would be nice if SCS redesigned a few prefabs, and altered the roads around Europoort in an update soon to accomodate heavy traffic flows, though. Sitting in a large traffic jam is certainly a surreal moment in multiplayer gaming.
