If we can't see it from the main road that passes by Universal or Disney World, we won't get them. Neither would be valid if we can't see them.

US-30 next to I-80 in Nevada?
How it would look in average, is how Sterling looks.

US-30 doesn't go thru Nevada. Are you meaning Idaho? The part that goes thru Twin Falls?

You can see part of Universal from I4 and a few no name amusement parks. All you can really see of disney is this power pole shaped like mickey mouse

I would LOVE to have Florida and Minnesota, specially with landmarks like Universal Studios Florida and Walt Disney World, also Kennedy Space Center.
I don't know, I've been all over Minnesota, and I've never seen any of those. ;)

While Disney is distanced from the freeway, Universal is much more visible. As for Kennedy Space Center, that'll probably also be unseen, unless...

Cape Canaveral could be a marked city, mainly for its port. Not only is there a cargo terminal, but cruise terminals are also surely serviced by trucks; those massive ships need to get their bulk supplies of food etc. somehow. FL A1A's crossing of the Banana provides a view of the distant space center, but there is the option of making the Vehicle Assembly Building a job site under the Cape Canaveral address.

flight50, name memory took a ... vacation.
It should have read:
US-30 next to I-80 in Nebraska?
How it would look in average, is how Sterling CO with I-76 looks.

^Lol. Ahhh. No worries. Yes Sterling is pretty close to I-80 and its not too bad. But what we don't have is US-138 or US-76 Business to connects to Sterling that is all parallel to I-76. US-30 would parallel I-80 in much tighter parameters. To me, US-26/US-20 in Boise that came with the Idaho dlc that runs parallel to I-84 is the best example as to how close SCS can get and much would fit. We can't get much closer than that with development occurring between the interstate and the US road. That 1-2 miles in the game is what SCS fills in with stuff. In real life, if US-30 to I-80 is real life 1-2 miles, I don't see it working in ATS. That would look more like a frontage road with nothing able to go in between to show space.

US-30 is much much tighter as it parallels US-80 so it would be very difficult for the devs to pull that off in its entire length. That's why I don't think US-30 is a good idea.

Ingame: US-20/26 and I-84 Boise ID, those roads are actually closer than Sterling CO and I-76.

If only looking at I-80 and US-30 and the connecting roads, then it would be possible.
But it would take space from other parallell roads.
Could be done, but I do not think it will be done.

Really, by the time we get to Florida, we should be able to get Disney World as a deliverable location. I mean, it is essential to the economy of Florida, no?

Well, I’m not actually expecting that but it would be cool. I think it would be a shame if we only got to see a sliver of the giant theme park business in Florida.

Disney World nor Universal have a place in ATS imo. They don't fit ATS economy at all. The amount if detail and asset needed is too high. No way SCS has the correct reference material.
