That means I'm not the only one who knows the pain of everyone mistaking Guildford for all of Surrey. Yay for awful drivers on overcapacity roads and anything interesting being an hour's drive away...

Less offtopic, I wonder how SCS would handle Fraser Canyon? They'd definitely need the truckstop at Cache Creek, Hell's Gate, and the Alexandra bridge!

Looks about right! Snowshed would be a must as well, I'm probably forgetting other things.

BC could have very interesting scenery.

And let's make every Vancouver delivery to be in Surrey ;)

I am not from Canada, but I have been vocal about getting BC in on the Washington dlc every since Washington was leaked on twitter back in May of 2018. At least we know Promods Canada will come eventually once Washington releases.

Pro Mods Canada Vancouver-Merritt is well done and perfect for what the scale allows: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpA9fr3 ... fFavignano, if/when BC comes out this is exactly what it should look like.

Their Bellingham to Vancouver however was somewhat lacking which I can understand due to constraints in the scale, however, exiting the George Massey tunnel and ending up in downtown Vancouver isn't realistic, or seeing downtown from the south side of the tunnel. This area would definitely need to be tidied up.

I think from a trucking perspective most of downtown Vancouver will have to be ignored by the devteam and be more of a backdrop ala Portland, but it will need a Portland/Seattle size chunk of the map to do it justice.

I think the key elements required to do Vancouver to be able to represent it accurately at the scale are the following

The highway from Bellingam to BC Highway 17

Roberts Bank Superport, largest port in Vancouver connects to BC Highway 17 on it's western end
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roberts_Bank_Superport


Highway 17 also connects both to the trans Canada highway close to the Portmann Bridge on it's eastern end.

Which then leads through Coquitlam, Burnaby and East Vancouver finally to the Cassiar connector and the Second Narrows bridge to the North Shore

The Trans Canada highway continues through North Van along Howe sound heading towards Whistler on the sea to sky highway

Pining to drive the Trans-Canada Highway... some eventual beautiful day.
