@KeganATSMCRB

Don't forget the Dolese truck on I40 on the north side of the highway, especially around Christmas they cover that thing in lights. Also since it's Dolese it has the possibility of being a delivery place as well like Coastline Mining. Dolese Brothers is also an Oklahoma company.

Purina which if I remember right is in Edmond near downtown is also fairly heavy in terms truck traffic.

Tinker AFB has airplanes on display right next to I40 as well.
Info: "The base has more than 26,000 military and civilian employees and is the largest single-site employer in the state of Oklahoma. The installation covers approx. 9 square miles (23 km2) and has 760 buildings with a building floor space of over 15,200,000 square feet (1,410,000 m2).[citation needed] The base is bounded by I-40 on the north and I-240 on the south."

If I remember correct it is the biggest aircraft maintenance base in America.

Also there is a light blue T-38 Talon across the highway from the rest, you can barely see it but it is left of the highway at a park between the two exits just below some trees bunched together.

Also to add on to Hobby Lobby they are a nation wide crafts store and are and Oklahoma company based around SW 44th & Council Rd. in Oklahoma City, they are headquartered here and have only one distribution center that serves the entire country which is also here in Oklahoma City at the crossroads mentioned above.

landmarks that should be in Oklahoma DLC
1. National Weather Center
Oklahoma State has some of the most severe weather occurrences of anywhere in the world, with powerful tornadoes, sky-splitting lightning, and searing heat. These extreme conditions are what makes a tour of the National Weather Center in Norman (south of the capital) so interesting. The guided session visits Oklahoma University's School of Meteorology, as well as the Storm Prediction Center.

2. Moore Warren Theater
The Moore Warren Theatre was opened April 4, 2008. It may be best known for surviving almost intact an EF5 Tornado On May 20, 2013 it received only external damage.
Image
3. Skydance Bridge
Located south of downtown Oklahoma City, is the Skydance Bridge. Inspired by Oklahoma's state bird, the scissor-tailed flycatcher, Skydance bridge soars over Interstate 40. The bridge is a 380-foot-long pedestrian bridge with a 197-foot-tall sculpture.

Oklahoma recently announced a complete overhaul of it's branding. One of the first changes has been replacing all the various older signs at entry points into the state by ODOT.

The following article has all the information.
https://www.ok.gov/triton/modules/newsr ... e_id=56165

Image

The image below shows the first 10 locations to be replaced, but as the article mentions, eventually every single point of entry will have this same sign.

CUSHING - “the biggest crossroad of gas pipelines in the world”.
With 7,500 inhabitants, Cushing, in the American state of Oklahoma, is a small but typical American city. Cushing is the heart of the WTI oil storage system, as it is called the prospected product in the United States. Its tanks have the capacity to hold 76 million barrels, which corresponds to 13% of the total capacity of Americans. The city has the title: “the biggest crossroad of gas pipelines in the world”.

SCS Software when making the map of the state of Oklahoma this small city is of great importance for the state and also for the country of the United States of America and also has worldwide importance as it concentrates the largest number of companies and oil reservoirs in the world world and is located at a crossroads of several oil pipelines.

Image

The oil responsible for supplying a large part of the country's refineries comes from its reservoirs.

This symbol looks like it is located in many places in the municipality, but I'm not sure, but there are several different pictures with this symbol.

Image

Pipelaine construction connecting to oil reservoirs:
The suggestion; is that SCS Software's research teams may be researching the machinery, pipelines and forms of transportation of this, to the areas of construction of oil and gas pipelines. This may start with the State of Oklahoma, specifically for this city. In the future, the creation of these assets may allow SCS Software to follow the development of the world of this infrastructure and launch loads in the WOT system, accompanying the construction and worldwide expansion of new gas and oil pipelines.

Tank Storage oil Construction:

1 Construction area of oil reservoirs.

3 oil storage companies.

if you are going to add Oklahoma make sure you get the panhandle this small section of land connects Texas to Colorado and Kansas.

That Crushing town had been the center of attention of all the big fishes in worldwide economics during last week. They all fear the moment the storing capacity of this town will reach it's limit; because if that happens, the price of crude oil will plummet (still more than it has already done)
