Euro Truck Simulator 2: City of Calais Reskin

We are always excited to show our community what changes and updates we are currently working on. Today we are focusing on one of the more noticeable changes that drivers in Europe can expect to see in the next 1.39 update.

Introducing the port of Calais, the fourth-largest port in France and the busiest for passenger traffic. Its industry accounts for more than a third of economic activity in the local area. From transporting goods to holidaymakers seeking sunshine, it serves as an important gateway between the United Kingdom and France.

As many of you may know, Calais is one of our base game cities which was released with Euro Truck Simulator 2. As such, a dedicated part of our map team has taken time to give the city and port a major reskin, giving it a fresh and up-to-date look for the next update. So what exactly has been changed? Let's take a closer look!

The biggest change you will notice is how the port is now represented in-game. In reality, Calais port is huge and so our map team has worked hard to best reflect that reality within the confines of our map scale. This newly recreated port will feature new assets including gates, terminals, ramps for ferries, and fences.

The entrance to the port has also received a major change; as well as the road leading to the port where previously a simple roundabout was located, it has now been updated to a larger custom-made roundabout with an overhead road crossing. This isn't the only change to the road networks, however.

Surrounding roads and highways that connect the port and the city will correspond more correctly to reality now, which includes more realistic highway exits. While the actual city of Calais will have a similar layout, it will be given a new look with updated terrain textures, road textures, new vegetation, and more. You will also find that quite a few of the industrial buildings have also been replaced with newer assets.

While many of the major changes are quite obvious from these pictures, we will leave the rest for you to explore and find what other smaller changes have been made. We look forward to sharing more with you on what is to come in 1.39.
