Road to Asia 1.3.1 by TerraMaps
Welcome to the step-by-step installation process for downloading and enjoying Road to Asia by TerraMaps for Euro Truck Simulator 2. Please follow each step to ensure Road to Asia works in your simulator.
Version 1.3.1 for ETS2 1.44
Compatible with ETS2 1.44 Includes Chinese cities Dandong and Dalian (plus new ferry and rail routing through Dalian), North Korean cities Sinuiju and Chongju, and South Korean cities Incheon and Seoul. Bugs from 1.3 fixed, Humvee police car adapted and Road signs upgraded with higher quality and pseudo-distance.
STEP 1: ASSETS AND MODELS FILES
The first step is to download the asset file for Road to Asia.
If you've downloaded the Asset file before, you still need to download it again for future updates. This asset file is compatible with Road to Asia 1.3.1 as well as required for Convoy Purposes and includes some def compatibility fixes. You also need the Models File. This shall be placed below the Assets File.
The Assets file is approximately 900MB and takes about 20 to 30 minutes (depending on your internet speed) to download on our sharemods account, but under a minute to download all required files on our premium link and includes all of the files you need to run Road to Asia. Our premium link only costs 2 dollars which helps fund our server costs to host this option as well as supports our development and modeling team and other paid addon features we'd like to add for TerraMaps and we really appreciate it. Patrons receive a free download link through Discord.
Note: Both premium download and free download links have identical versions.
EXTRA STEP: BUFFER SIZE
TO AVOID CTD'S: go to Euro Truck Simulator 2 in our "Documents" folder, open config.cfg in Notepad, find uset r_buffer_page_size and change it to at least "30" or higher (if the number is at 10, you will get a CTD in Ashgabat, Pyongyang, Seoul, and Dandong)
STEP 2: DOWNLOAD THE DEF/MAP, THE FIX AND OPTIONAL FERRY TO VALENCIA
SKIP THIS STEP IF YOU CHOSE THE PREMIUM DOWNLOAD (the files are all included in the .zip file you received after purchasing the download)
After obtaining the Road to Asia Assets.scs and Road to Asia Models.scs file, now it's time to download the main map content for Road to Asia. We also offer a Ferry Connection (optional) for those who wish to have the ferry route from Valencia, Spain to Dalian, China which you can then take a rail to Wuqia to join the rest of Road to Asia. This is also recommended to make a Vanilla version of Road to Asia (without using any other map mods), but you can also add this optional ferry to have it in a map combo.
STEP 3: ROAD CONNECTION MODS
Unfortunately, The Great Steppe has experienced compatibility issues after ETS2 1.44. There are community supported patches and fixes for this so you may find the connection available, but until ProMods releases their version of TGS, we can no longer keep up or support an official built in RC to an incompatible mod. For now, we recommend taking the AZGE Baku ferry to Turkmenbashi or the Optional Valencia Ferry, or search the community for a fix for TGS. We appreciate your understanding and patience!
Please view the following post for the download links and load order:
A ferry connection to RoEx's AZGE Baku is provided in the Road to Asia files. It will activate if you have AZGE loaded in your mod manager.
NOTE there is a strange bug that does not provide UI map navigation to take the ferry between Turkmenbashi and Baku. The ferry works, just ignore the map route if wanting to take the Capsian Sea ferry and navigate to the Turkmenbashi ferry port to get to Baku via Ferry manually.

STEP 4: BACKGROUND MAP
In order to be able to freely move around the world map and see cities and roads where they should accurately be, we work with Bengan's Maps and strongly recommend everyone who enjoys expanding their truck sim to utilize his maps.

You can also instead use the ProMods High Quality Extended Map which centers around ProMods' compatible load order map mods and ensures all cities are in an accurate location. This background map can be downloaded easily through the steam workshop.

STEP 5: LOAD ORDER
If you chose the vanilla version, make sure DEF/MAP is above ASSETS in your mod manager and below any steam workshop mods, background maps, and other non map mods.
If you chose our flagship version, use any appropriate load order that works for you, but what we have tested in an official testing environment is:
ProMods (if applicable)
RusMap def (if using ProMods)
Road to Asia Ferry Connection to Valencia (Optional)
Road to Asia DEF/MAP
Road to Asia ASSETS
Road to Asia MODELS
Soutern Region Def and Map
Soutern Region Model 1
Soutern Region Model 2
The Great Steppe def
The Great Steppe map
The Great Steppe model
