Maps TSM & Promods
I assume, nobody tried yet to merge those 2 maps? I started playing with Promod and now continue with TSM, since I do not want to split profile, I just checked that my drivers don't have delivieries to the mod cities, switch seems to work.

Now my question, do I need to check other things before I progress too far? I notice that TSM didn't just expand the map, it also changed a lot on the existing maps. Will I get troubles if I in later time disable TSM again or will it work as well as it seemd to work with Promods?

If you're going to be swapping/removing map mods, something to be wary of is buying garages. Don't buy garages that are in towns that don't exist in the vanilla map.

I should point out that I don't actually *know* for sure if it will cause problems... just something to be aware of.

Deliveries to mod cities shouldn't be an issue as the game will just cancel any deliveries pending when it detects a map change, though I guess it sure won't hurt to be extra careful.

When you do the swap you'll get a ton of 'non existing spawn location' type errors on loading your savegame but they're not critical.

There is always a risk that it might cause the samegame to be unloadable..

yeah, the issue with garages might be similar to the issue with your employers, those deliveriers won't be canceled and will cause a crash. promods just adds new cities which is quite easy to enable/disable. With TIM, this will be harder, as it changes a lot in the existing map.

Is it possible,. I got fewer jobs from cities since I play without promods? right now, I am in Nürnberg and it offers me 7 jobs only.

Rather doubtful, they didn't change anything in the base game.

I've disabled both TSM and Promods a few times in my dev profile without ever worrying about employee drivers and their deliveries, nor for that matter my own. I've never run into any crashes that involve delivery locations. Every time, so far, the game resets both mine and my drivers' job status, dumps me at HQ and proceeds without further problem.

Garages you own in a no-longer-existing town however, may well be a whole other matter.. the game *might* be able to deal with it as elegantly as with delivery locations, leaving you to hold the bag for the losses.. or it might not - I haven't gone so far as to test that out yet.

Well, the crash happens if you for instance open the deliveries log of a driver which had a job of a just removed city.

That is the main reason I asked here, because it usually does not crash when you load the save, it only crashes when it should show you a issue.

Well that explains it, I never check the logs, heh.
