The map feature requires a collection of tiles. To do this, you need to generate it.

Many thanks to TwinDragon for keeping the map tiles collection up to date with each new version of the game.
In this section you can find the following information:

The map functionality requires a collection of tiles. You have two ways to get these tiles:
- Default remote, you don’t need to download anything. But you need an internet connection
- Self-hosted remote, you can use your own remote.
In the default configuration, the map settings are as follows:
- Tiles location:
- Kind of map:
- Custom remote tiles location:
- Active map:
This configuration can only use the base map and can automatically switch between ETS or ATS. This configuration does not support any other map mod.
If you want to use a modded map, see the
Menu > Config > Map of route advisor
To change the tiles location, it’s simplier and in two action:
- Enable the
Map > Custom tiles
- Set your path on
Map > Custom remote tiles location
Note: All others settings will be ignored. It’s concerned:

See the next section on how to host tile collections.
If you wish, you can host your own collections of map tiles. See the previous section to enable this.
Step 1: Get tiles
This project works with tiles from the Unicor-p/ts-map project. To get them, you can generate them yourself with the previous project, or get them from the SCS_Map_Tiles project.
Collecting other tiles from any other project will not be supported.
Step 2: Host tiles
For both solutions, you need to keep the strict structure provided by the tile collection project. As follows:
├── <your_host> └── Tiles └── <Other JSON files> └── TileMapInfo.json
If you have your own server on the cloud or elsewhere, you can copy and paste all the content generated by the tiles project into your server.
If you just want to debug or if you don’t want or can’t host a cloud server, you can create a small server on the local machine (the machine used to run this application and SCS Games).
You can use this one:
$ http-server ./maps -p 8081 --cors -s
This is a dependency of NodeJs. So you must have NodeJs installed to use it. This is not the only way to get a local server, if you want to use another method, feel free ;)
Step 3: Set the url
Now you just need to define your host on the parameter.
|Hosted path = Path to set||Final path example|
Make sure NOT to add a
/at the end of the defined path. It is automatically added.
When using a custom tile location, all other settings for the tiles on the map will be ignored.
Finally, set the path to the
Custom remote tiles location.
If you want to participate in this step, you will please me.
This project needs tiles for :
- ETS2 base map (Full DLC)
- ATS base map (Full DLC)
- Promod (ETS)
- Promod Canada
Export the tiles
Check the side project
Unicor-p/ts-map to know how ;)
