All Semaphores have Four-Second Yellows

I have been driving cars in the United States for decades. Where I have driven, traffic lights (aka semaphores) display at least a four-second yellow before changing to red. Also they display no yellow light before changing back to green. ETS2 semaphore behavior is strange to me; I have been unable to become accustomed to it.

Because I’m set in my ways, I spent some time editing files today, and tonight I am publishing my mod in case anyone else wants it.

Because the map is so large, I’m not convinced all the semaphores got changed (I don’t want to take the time to check everywhere). So, if you guys want to report back to me where it’s working and where it’s not, I’d appreciate it.

This mod is intended to work with the vanilla map, any/all map DLCs up to and including Italia (where semaphores are scarce; I have found none so far), and promods v2.25 (in mod manager, place this mod above ProMods Definition Package).

This mod contains only semaphore-dedicated files, so I don’t expect it to interact with any but map mods.

Spot tested on version 1.30 with all map DLCs sans promods and then with promods v2.25.

    muy buena idea !! siempre me multan porque no hago tiempo al pasar… verde y rojo !!!!

  3. well the defalult way is the way it works in europe…

    1. @gibanica: well in America (and I’m sure in the English speaking countries of Europe) we spell “defalult” as ‘default’…

      @OP: Finally! Been waiting for something like this for ages.

      1. The fact that he had a grammar mistake doesn’t changed the fact that he’s right. This mod is for Americans who play this game.. For us it’s the right way it should be.
        To the author – big thanks for your contribute!

    2. I would like to add that this is also the way it is in the Netherlands, going from red to green without the yellow. Which I believe is also the default if you drive around in the Netherlands in the game.
