The problem is not that I didn't read all info. I know that the Ultimate BGs cover a bigger area than the Universal ones. That's not the point. The point is, that at each Ultimate BG there is this text "Place this mod right above the main BG mod!" So what is the main BG mod? I thought the main BG mod is actually one of the Universal BG mods... The text "Place this mod right above the main BG mod!" suggests that the Ultimate BGs are some kind of addon (or even better: extension) for the main BG mod, whatever the main BG mod actually is.
So that was really confusing. Ofcourse I could just try the various BG mods and wait and see what happens, but the problem with large map combos is that the loading process takes a lot of time with each mod change. So therefore I wanted to be sure which BG mod I had to use, before I would start ETS2.

I see that the first post has been changed: the Universal BGs are removed, and thanks to this it's all a bit less confusing now!

One last question though: what exactly do you mean with "HUGE combo maps"? Untill a few months ago I used the Global Map Combo from Wombat Trucker, but EAA became too big, and also there was this problem with a shifted map. So now I use the EurAsia Map Combo, again from Wombat Trucker. But what exactly is considered as 'HUGE'?

@Vinnie Terranova

The main BG mod is the mod you choose as World Map view background
and the mod that should be put right above it is a Crash Fix mod, that is
needed to avoid a crash when using HUGE combo maps, which is best to
illustrate with Wombat's Global combo maps, containing both EAA and ROS
on top of his Eurasia combo!

EDIT: Yes, I removed the now NOT AVAILABLE Universal BGs, due to them
having been replaced by the Ultimate ones. I will also re-write the rest
so that it might be easier to choose what you want to download. Thanks
for raising this question about the too much info, but I had already said
in a post that I should remove the Universal BGs from the first post after
some time, but forgot about it due to being busy with other things!

Thanks for your clarification, and also for your hard work with all these BGs. Take your time, some things just are way more important.

================== First post rewrite and reorg! ===================
I have to some extent rewritten the top part of the first post, so now there's common information about the
Ultimate BGs as a header above the mods, thereby leaving the respective BG mods in a clearer condition. I
also did some reorganization of the information and the layout is a bit different. So, what do you say? Does
it look better now and will it work in an easier way? Please, I want your comments!

Hello!
I have it exactly as in Wombats latest video but the game still quits when trying to access the map anywhere.tried two map backgrounds (SCS style with wider lines and the thinner one). As said, I have it exactly as it is in the video mentioned above, which means I have the crash fix as well, ABOVE the map background.

@CS-TMT

Well, sad to hear that you have that problem, but as you are the only one so far,
I have to ask you to post your game log.

@Tapir

So do I! Load order might be wrong, as my BGs ought to be placed at
the very top of the Mod Manager, with only the crash fix or Navigator
color mods on top of it! Most people watching Wombat's combo videos
places all their other mods above his.

My bad!! I thought it should be placed on top of map mods!! In fact, in ETS2 1.36 (my first version of ETS2) and in 1.37 I had it on top of map mods (Wombat's combos) and not on top of the whole list and all worked (maybe by luck :blush2: )

I used to do this in 1.36 and 1.37 as I thought it should be the case, but never had problems :grin: anyway, I just tried again with the background mod and the fix on top of the whole mod list and still no luck.
I will try and remove all other mods and see how it goes, then try to install one by one.

@CS-TMT

No problem, Wombat even made a video specifically to remedy the lack of info in his regular combo videos
Here's the link to how mods are to be loaded in a profile. ENJOY!
