Wild life in Wyoming and Montana bison appear as rare surprise to block road sit there and eat grass. :) Deer, rams, mountain loins be nice as well.

Open street map is good resource to know where the roads, powerlines, railroads, powerlines are located.

As an active contributor of OpenStreetMap I'm very happy that you're using it. The only disadvantage of OSM is that you can't switch to aerial imagery very fastly. Luckily, there is this tool where you can compare different map services: https://tools.geofabrik.de/mc/#12/42.05 ... -satellite

I agree, open street map is great resource actually if the users accurately labels everything. Google street view does not tell you where the powerlines are located or which roads are local roads vs truck routes. With future map expansions of both games using street view as supplement to google street view is good idea to get big picture.

A fair bit of Wyoming's traffic light assemblies at intersections in towns look like this. The signs and signals are mounted on the same masts/gantries.

That's cool! They seem to be like a mini version of the highway gantry structure with traffic signals mounted to the bottom of them.

Here's one in Rawlins, WY: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.7883692 ... 312!8i6656

It's also interesting how they have these gantry signal poles and normal signal poles mounted on the same support pole like this.
