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 1.4 for ETS2 1.45
Compatible with ETS2 1.45. InExplore new challenging roads from deserts and Central Asian old towns to snowy mountain ranges. This update also includes more than 15 new detailed towns waiting to be explored by you.
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 1.4 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 2.3 GB and takes about 45-60 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 AND FIXES
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 we make a new road connection to RoExtendend, 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!
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 High Quality Extended Map from Sipesor and ensures all cities are in an accurate location.

STEP 5: LOAD ORDER
2)We only support the maps that we have in the TerraMaps ETS2 Recommended Load Order 1.45:
If you use other maps check other common used load orders like the ones from RoExtended https://roextended.ro/forum/viewforum.php?f=15
And we kindly ask you to ask the combo owner for futher support
Older versions are no longer supported due to bugs.
