Many of you are asking many questions when it goes about release. I want to say first that the release of Tregion 0.1 takes a longer while than we thought, but you might already know that. Why are we not releasing yet? What is taking so long? We will explain it.
SCS updates make it hard for us to convert every each time. Most people who develop know that converting to the next version of SCS’s ETS2 and ATS is a pain. Especially when you have a quite big library of custom assets and prefabs. Sometimes those assets can create a CTD (Crash to desktop) and then we have to fix those.
Own spare time
Yes, that’s true, we are not a company and we all do it as a hobby in our own spare time. All of our developers have an own personal life next to developing maps for ETS2. We put a lot of our spare time in the project but that mostly isn’t enough to cover the whole project within just a few weeks. Thanks to all this we have to postpone everything time after time to make this map mod even more awesome than it already is.
How much did you already cover then?
Well, we covered a lot. We are currently with 18 ETS2 developers only! That is already a lot! Of which 5 are on version 0.1
5 mappers on approx 100kms (1:2 scale. approx 50-60kms irl) of road is a lot.
What have we covered in 0.1?:
The whole A12 from Den Haag-Leidschenveen to De Meern. Meanwhile other developers are working on other stretches of road to create a network.
We hope that you guys understand that it takes a lot of time and effort to make maps like these and we friendly ask to wait patiently. It is ready when it’s ready!
