How to Use Navigation Mods With Map Mods

how to use navigation mods with map mods

As you all know, my navigation mods use the original game map data. Therefore, it does not work properly with map mods. I've only released special versions to ProMods map mod before. Now, I have prepared customization addons for other map mods. Explained how you can customize these addons below.

1. Download the customization addon you want to use.

Customization Addons for ETS 2:
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Customization Addon
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Night Version Customization Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Customization Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Night Version Customization Addon

Customization Addons for ATS:
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Customization Addon
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Night Version Customization Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Customization Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Night Version Customization Addon

2. Which map's def file(map_data.sii) is active at the top in the mod manager?

For example:

Mod Manager
Navigation Mod
X Map
Y Map
Z Map
T Map

We need map data of the X Map mod. We will solve the problems on the world map using the X Map mod data.

3. Copy the map data of your map mod.

Go to def/map_data.sii file of your X Map mod. Copy this data:

copy the map data of your map mod

4. Paste map data of your map mod into customization addon.

Go to def/map_data.sii file of customization addon. Paste map data of your X Map mod here:

paste map data of your map mod into customization addon

Then save it. Your customized addon is now ready.

5. Activate the customization addon.

Copy the customized addon zip file in My Documents/Euro Truck Simulator2/mod folder. Now you can activate in Mod Manager. Place addon at the top in the mod manager.

Finally your mod manager should look like this:

Mod Manager
Navigation Customization Addon
Navigation Mod
X Map
Y Map
Z Map
T Map

That's it.

Additional Info: If you use a different map/zoom system that separates colors and map data (like BenganJ's Universal World View map mods) you only need color addons.

1. Download the color addon you want to use:

Color Addons for ETS 2:
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Color Addon
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Night Version Color Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Color Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Night Version Color Addon

Color Addons for ATS:
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Color Addon
  • Download Google Maps Navigation Night Version Color Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Color Addon
  • Download Yandex Navigator Night Version Color Addon

2. Activate the color addon.

Copy the color addon zip file in My Documents/Euro Truck Simulator2/mod folder. Now you can activate in Mod Manager. Place addon at the top in the mod manager.

Finally your mod manager should look like this:

Mod Manager
Navigation Color Addon
Universal World View
Navigation Mod
X Map
Y Map
Z Map
T Map

    1. ME addon uses main promods map_data.sii but you don't have to use customise version, there is already promods version for example i'm using this one for my map combos; https://www.sinagritbabasworkshop.com/2019/10/ets-2-google-maps-navigation-night-version-for-promods.html

    2. MafiaX is right. Middle-East no longer uses special map_data.sii. Just use the ProMods version.

    1. Merhaba. Navigasyon modlarına yüksek öncelik vermediğinizde bazı mod "def"leri renkleri eski haline döndürür. Mod yöneticisinde modları aktif ederken yukarıdaki örnek sıralamaları dikkate alırsanız bu sorun yaşanmaz. Ayrıca ProMods kullanırken ekstra bir eklentiye ihtiyacınız yok. Sadece ProMods sürümünü kullanmanız yeterli.

    1. Mod Manager:
      Navigation Mod
      Heilbronn Map
      Y Map
      Z Map
      T Map

      So you need map data of Y Map.

  5. Hi Sinagrit, thanks for these addons. I'd like to report the color addon doesn't work, though. We investigated this in the RoEx forums with BenganJ and it seems like a wrong line break character was used? Please have a look at this thread for details: https://roextended.ro/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1500&p=24846#p24852

    1. Hi. Thanks for info. I'm using the standard SCS character format.(LF) Only the missing character in the last color line caused error. Anyway. All color addons updated. Addons should now work properly.
