Here's a map I drew out of WA with the cities and roads I believe should make it into the WA DLC. Kind of based off of the pre-production map in the ATS files.

Grey roads are roads that can be optional to be added/unnecessary. To be honest, I think the densitiy of roads should be increased from more than just interstates and highways because of the recent detours feature, and having more back-roads would give much more options for alternate routes if you run into a detour.

NOTE: Map is not to ATS scale.
Pretty much on point here :lol: Congrats

Thank you all who contributed into this topic!

As mentioned in the beginning, we could not include all the ideas but I believe our map designers tried their best!

As Washington was released feel free to post any ideas for rework.

Please be aware, we can't guarantee that we'll use the research you give us. Better to take it as a kind of "rework wishlist".

Once more, thank you very much!

A small and super easy detail to be fixed, the portion of the Alaskan Way Viaduct (SR-99) that can be seen in the distance when you are down by the port should be removed as they have recently finished demolishing it.

@NorthernAirTrucker Well, it hasn't been COMPLETELY demolished (there's still some section that need to be demolished), but it should be finished up soon.

I'm not sure if a license plate can be assigned to a particular variant of a vehicle, but the Washington State Patrol license plates are incorrect at the moment.
Their license plates are of the format "WSP ###", where # is a number between 0 and 9. They have been only using 3-digit numbers so far based on what I last saw when I was in that state in 2018.

Minor note: the intersection at the road going into the Love's in Ellensburg is now a roundabout. This was a pretty recent construction project, so I'll try to record it next time I pass through and drop a link here.

I think a huge opportunity was missed in WA near Kennewick. The Hanford Nuclear reservation. Would be great for hauling dry cask storage containers into as part of the special/heavy transport pack, as well as other supplies used in the cleanup of the site.

Even aircraft sub-assemblies travel on rail before they are assembled at the aircraft plant! Here is a Boeing 737 fuselage:

Posting images and videos related to the plane that is made in Washington.
  Finding images and videos that prove that other states must have animation of train locomotives carrying the airplane's fuselage.
  Fuselage is manufactured in Wichita, Kansas.
  And from what I realize, the Railroad route goes through Colorado, goes up to Montana, goes through Idaho air, and arrives in Washington, to factory.

  A second proposition for SCS Software would be to make this railroad hidden in the game map, because in the future this could enable the development of a realistic, real-load train simulator based on the licensing and advertising of current companies and others that may come.
To join a possible global simulator (Rail, road, sea and waterway, air) and perhaps developed by SCS Software.

@plinio.lisboa.br. We have plane fuselages on trains already though.

As a rework, I think Ikea fits and it gets the company in ATS finally.
