I noticed the new high-speed rail viaduct near Fresno is visible in Street View now:


It's not very pretty to look at, but it might be worth including as a landmark. CA-99 through the Central Valley can be pretty monotonous, and the viaduct breaks it up a bit.

A rework of I-80 in Nevada would be a good idea.

All exit numbers along Interstate 580 in Nevada have been changed. https://www.nevadaappeal.com/news/carso ... to-change/
They should be updated in the game. The old and new exit numbers can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstat ... #Exit_list.

I agree with you Flight except Fresno fictional road. It should be deleted. And instead of we could get CA 180- CA-198 and following roads which exist in real life. Even if this fictional road looks cool. We need realism the most like in the newer DLCs. I think California needs a lot of rework. Nowadays I avoid as much as possible.

I'd love to see some better real world representation of the roads between Fresno and Huron. CA 198 would be perfect, plus there's tons on smaller farm roads that could be used to just cut across the valley.

*Colorado added! LA, and San Diego are unmapped out of protest for their future rework*

Re: Wildlife Crossing at Liberty Canyon, CA.

CALIFORNIA - The largest ecological crossing of animal life (Biggest in the world) on the road: The crossing will start in 2021 and will be completed in late 2023.

A planned wildlife crossing on the 101 Freeway between Agoura Hills and Calabasas, which will be the largest of its kind in the world, is scheduled to begin in 2021.

The crossing is being built to give wild animals a way to cross Highway 101 and avoid being hit by any of the hundreds of thousands of vehicles that pass through the area daily.
"Crossing will save the local mountain lion population from extinction, serve as a global model for the conservation of urban wildlife," says Beth Pratt, in an interview with CBS.

"The 165-foot-wide crossing will span 10 feet along 10 lanes on 101 Freeway on Liberty Canyon Road, according to the National Wildlife Federation."

"The plans envisage that the top of the structure will eventually be covered by almost an acre of native vegetation so that it can sustain wildlife and provide the habitat, shelter, food and water that different species need to survive."

Picacho Peak Arizona.
we will leave here some more material that may be useful for making graphic improvements regarding the highway, I-10, between Picacho Peak State Park and its surroundings.

Perhaps these images can collaborate to make some kind of very interesting and recreational material about this area for American Truck Simulator players when they are traveling on this highway between the city of Phoenix and Tucson.

Perhaps parking the truck in this location or any other vehicle Perhaps it is possible that some special scene of this mountain will appear.

This gas station can allow the trucker player to exercise very good camera control to travel in an aerial way surrounding the camera movement over the mountain and viewing the traffic and many details of the area adjacent to the mountain.

https://www.google.com/maps/@32.6494632 ... 384!8i8192
This site also allows it to be used for creativity to make innovative scenes using the new features that SCS Software has created for special events.
This is a place that could be a small discovery allowing access to different mountain views with special camera control over this part of the map.
Players could make amazing scenes with camera control having the mountain and the highway, in a camera shift system it is very similar to the drone.

Re: Newman Peak Mountains and pumping stations - irrigation.

------------- Newman Peak ----------

It also offers some possibility of gameplay. Why at the base of this mountain is located one of the water pumping units, for the irrigation channels of the Colorado River waters that are transposed from the original river, through a system of channels for agricultural areas in the state.

Drones view Newman Peak
One of the possibilities of gameplay close to this mountain as mentioned is one of the pumping stations that certainly needs several types of materials, so that the site can continue to perform its essential water supply service for agricultural farms in the state.

This pumping station transports water to the next pumping station and transports water through an underground channel through the mountain.
This place is also lit every night with a beautiful lighting system.
