Floght50 I agree I look forward to the Great Plains as well. It will be a fun contrast from the Mountains don’t get me wrong I truly can’t wait for Colorado especially the 70 goi;g through. But since each state is made individually I have. A lot of faith in scs. They made New Mexico exciting so I think they will do the same with each state.

Yeah buddy. If they made something out of NM, I have zero worries. Colorado has my complete attention though. But I must and will enjoy everything that comes before it. But that I-70 will be a masterpiece of a road.

I fully agree. I just am really wanting that 70 in Colorado. I think we all are.

The Great Plains aren't actually flat, contrary to popular belief. They're actually a giant slope leading up to the mountains. The eastern parts of the Plains are more green, but moving west the land starts to get more beige and the terrain starts acting up, a subtle transformation that's more noticeable when you cross the Plains in person, so there's even terrain and environment variation within each state.
Nobody can explain it better than you, rbsanford. People finally have to say goodbye to the assumption that everything is just flat and/or boring in this part of the US. I really like the hilly landscape in this video of BigRig Travels in south-western South Dakota. In the link the video starts at a little more than 1 hour, shortly before he enters I-90 in Whitewood i think. Mountains appear in the backround which must be the Black Hills.

Every state will have a unique feel. Give the developers some credit. Look at the states so far aside from the base map and how they look.

they look quite similar because us has distinct regions. quite not every state is different by far. if it wasnt for the state signs, you wouldnt be able to tell most of the time what state you are in.

SW [NW ROCKIES] [MW PLAINS] [SE NE]

similar areas i have put into into brackets.

The problem with the Plains is the Rockies however... When you drive westbound on the I-70 east of Denver, you can see the Rockies from a great distance irl. But with the short drawing distance I'm afraid that you will not see the Rockies ingame, or you might see them popping up, which isn't great either.

All the states have diverse foliage the topography Iowa not really bad to drive the back-roads very much like Minnesota where I live which is 90 from Iowa border.

Far models are a thing now and SCS will do just as they did with Mt. St. Helens. They will bake the Rockies into the scene as realistically as possible. We are not there yet so we can't assume they haven't thought of it. I am sure SLC, will test this out.
