Germany Rework - Rhine-Ruhr: Industry & Intersections

Today we are happy to share with you some more insights into the work being undertaken by our Germany Rework team! With roads & industries being amongst the most important and familiar aspects for a trucker, this blog focuses on the changes being made to the Industries & Intersections of the Rhine Region. 

The Rhine-Ruhr region in Germany is often known as the industrial heartland of the country. Encompassing major cities such as Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund and Duisburg, the region is characterized by its rich history and dynamic urban network along the banks of the Rhine River.

The team behind the Germany Rework wanted to reflect the importance of this area by boosting the in-game economy. To achieve this, cities such as Cologne now has six new depots for players to deliver to and from, a big change from the existing two! 

You'll find a variety of industries from car factories to rail depots, scrapyards and river ports. Also new to the region is the addition of Germany's 4th busiest airport, located in Düsseldorf, which you will be able to deliver to and from. You may even spot the addition of the well-known airport SkyTrain when you visit. We hope that you will enjoy the range of new and reworked depots you will find in this region.

Like previous areas we've reworked, this entire region has been rebuilt from the ground up, which includes the road network. We also want to highlight some of the new intersections you'll come across on your travels through the Rhine Region. 

One such addition is the Kreuz Kaiserberg, a spaghetti junction that is quite large and complicated. Our team has worked hard to represent this well-known intersection as best as possible within the size and scale limits of the area. We have also created more realistic junctions in the city, as these built up areas often feature a range of different intersections types to deal with high volumes of traffic. 

As we continue to progress with this phase of the rework, we look forward to sharing more news on its development and the changes you can expect to see in a future free update! Until then, be sure to let us know your thoughts on the work undertaken here, as our team would love to hear from you.
