The cities of ATS (Oregon) are bigger and more vivid in my opinion than those of DLC Baltico. Scale is not justification.

It's true the cities in Oregon seem bigger then the Baltic cities.
Scale indeed isn't the issue here, it's the actual size of Oregon.

Look here: https://thetruesize.com/#?borders=1~!MT ... NjY3ODk)Mw
thetruesize.com is a website where you can easily compare country-sizes with each other.

Here you can see Oregon is almost as big as the the three Baltic states. And since the scale of ATS and ETS2 are basically the same nowadays, it's kinda obvious there's more room for cities. That's why the cities in Oregon can be made bigger then they can in the Baltic states.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.
No. 3 forum spammer!

Very interesting this site, now I can better understand the whole question of size of maps.

Thank you for the explanation ;)

I haven't got the DLC yet but reading this thread I do see a consistent theme, if you see the posters' flags and their comments they can be summarised as 'SCS version of my country is more realistic, but I prefer the promods version of other countries.'

This seems to match my experience, as I have been to Riga and although the road layout was authentic and it had some appropriate landmarks the promods version didn't quite feel accurate. So I think promods does a very good job of making scenic roads and has much more ambitious interchanges but isn't as good at capturing the individual essence of places but is in general more interesting.

The exception (perhaps because it's newer) of the places I know is London, which has really captured the feel of the place and gives that feeling of being surrounded on all sides by tall buildings (I mean 5-7 floors rather than skyscrapers).
