Help / FAQ


A - Main informations

What is the scale of the map mods ?

Grand Utopia, Mygotopia and their addons are at 1:1 scale. This means that one kilometer traveled in the game is equal to one real kilometer. Therefore, the time in play also runs at real speed.

Are the mods free ?

It depends on the mod in question:

EURO TRUCK SIMULATOR

  • Grand Utopia - Standalone map : this mod is free.
  • Mygotopia - GU add-on : The alpha versions of this mod are reserved only for Globetrotter members of my Patreon. Public versions will be free but are not yet available.
  • Patrons Island - GU add-on : This mod is only available to Archipelago Adventurer and Globetrotter members of my Patreon.
  • Akokan Island - GU add-on : This mod is only available to Archipelago Adventurer and Globetrotter members of my Patreon.

AMERICAN TRUCK SIMULATOR

  • Grand Utopia of America - Standalone map : this mod is not yet available.
  • More American Cities (Colorado) - Base map add-on : This mod is available for purchase via the Patreon shop or via the Archipelago Adventurer and Globetrotter subscriptions.

Does the Grand Utopia map work with other maps?

No, the Grand Utopia map is an independent map because of its different scale from the basic game. It is therefore not compatible with any other map. On the other hand, there may be compatibility mods that allow to make Grand Utopia compatible with other maps. To my knowledge, it is possible to combine Grand Utopia with the base map/Promods and Pomezania.

What are the latest versions available?

B - Set up and update process

How to install the mods?

For exemple, to install the Grand Utopia Map, you must first download the mod. Then place the grandutopia.scs file in your mod folder (My Documents/Euro Truck Simulator 2/mod). Once the game is launched, you must create a new game. Before launching your new game, you must first activate the mod in your mod manager and then select grandutopia.mbd instead of Europe in the "Map" tab.

Once all this is done, launch your game and start rolling!

How to update the mods when a new version is available?

To update a mod, simply replace the old nameofthemod.scs file with the new one in your mod folder. No need to recreate a new game, just restart your current game.

My game crashes, what can I do?

Before creating a bug report to report a crash, check first :

- that the version of the mod you have is compatible with the version of ETS 2 you have.
- that the crash is present even in a game without any other mod.
- that you have allocated more RAM memory to your game (a procedure is available in the User Guide in the mod archive).
- that your PC has a good configuration.
- that you have checked your game files (on Steam).

Indeed, in order to recreate realistic and therefore quality environments, I have to use a lot of items. This greatly affects the performance of your PC which needs more resources to run the game. Note that my mods are continuously tested by my Patreon members and myself before each public release of a new version. Most of the time, the cause of the crash is probably your configuration.


D - Custom VTC

What is the purpose of a personalized VTC?

By installing your personalized VTC on one of my map mods, you will add a touch of realism to the way you play. Indeed, your VTC will become a real gaming company and will therefore be playable like any other company created by SCS Software. Thus, the logo of your VTC will be put on the buildings of your depot and the trailers will be in the colors of your VTC. It will even be possible to cross AI's running with one of your trailers.

How much does it cost to create a VTC?

The creation, configuration and installation of a VTC costs 30,00 €.

Who will be able to see and use my VTC?

Your VTC being directly integrated into the mod, it will be visible and playable by all those who play the mod.
