Really enjoying the Idaho DLC so far. Only Salmon and Pocatello left to discover. The road network is good for me. I don't mind the death ends one bit :) .
Also no stuttering or frame drops noticed so far with SSAO and 400% scaling and Viper Peterbilt.
In the Beta I never had the problems with frame drops around Las Vegas.
I use a laptop with a 1660ti in it.

A testament to how good i think a dlc is; 2 days in and ive visited all cities, completed the wotr event and i want more. Compared to RTTBS, it took me 5 months to visit all cities because i just didnt enjoy it as much. I know RTTBS is a larger dlc but those American highways are fantastic. Cruising from Idaho falls to St George was awesome.
But as much as i love Idaho its a 8/10. £6 is a steal but it is a small dlc with the limited road network. As others have stated the lack of any new companies was a let down. For all the time and effort that goes into the pre planning and the micro details its a shame nothing gets done about new cargo/companies. I would of thought at least a new farm company to go with the potato theme.

I think you misunderstood, I'm referring to something added in on US 95 leading somewhere, without spoiling too much of it :D
Oh yes, that was a very nice surprise.

I thought the "Cruise Idaho" eventt was about hauling potatoes all day long :D
A bit of a let down, I am too busy taking WOT contracts to pay much attention to the cargo though
Office moved to Fort Collins, Colorado

^Fix it, but its not broken. The blogs have shown RMDs in traffic. B-trains and TPD are trailer ownership only so don't expect to see those in traffic.
I have RMD and B-Trains owned, I cant relocate them to Boise headquarters, its grayed out, Im not talking about traffic Im talking about owning those trailer in Idaho. I guess I should have said that.

@russ99, et al: Yeah, that was a nice detail. I also got a kick out of the Napoleon Dynamite reference; I won't say where that is either so it's a surprise. It's too bad US 91 from Logan to McCammon wasn't added, since tons of references could have been made in Preston.

Looking at the scenery along US 93 between Arco and Challis, and of ID 75 between Stanley and Galena Summit, I'm more excited than before for Colorado and Montana, which should bring more of that to the table. Absolutely incredible work was done there; it's some of the best scenery in the game, and that's saying something!

By the way, I found this in an abandoned garage in Arco. Who's Vladko Prdko?

I saw a post on reddit that I found interesting, I'll just leave this here:

"Even though I am enjoying its (Idaho) high quality, it struck me how fast I discovered all of Idaho. Then I realized, it's not just a feeling, but each ATS DLC has indeed gotten less and less discoverable roads:

Oregon (5000 miles discoverable road)
Washington (3800 miles)
Utah (3500 miles)
Idaho (3300 miles)
One could argue its due to the state sizes IRL. Fact remains though, we are getting less with each DLC but at arguably better quality. However, one could also argue that graphical progress is not a real reason to cut roads and, they could actually have added more unusual roads for smaller states like Idaho, even back roads and unusual roads that trucks don't normally use. In real life trucking, trucks sometimes actually do use old dirt roads for hazardous loads and there are hardly any in Utah or Idaho DLC.

So what do you guys think, do you think it's fair to charge the same price for increasingly smaller DLCs? With Colorado DLC, if this continues, we are probably looking at only 3000 miles."

So, what he is saying and what is correct is that technically, each DLC is shrinking. Should we be worried about this? As much as I enjoy Idaho, I must agree, I have unconsciously gotten the feeling more and more that each new DLC is smaller than the last. And there is the point to be made about Colorado too, will it see only 3000 miles? Will they not add more unusual truck routes to return to at least 4000 miles of road? It feels kind of odd to not compensate the smaller states with at least more dirt roads or logging routes or unconventional trucking roads to make up for the "lost miles." of previous DLCs.

If this continues and they don't compensate, eastern states are going to be ridiculously small for charging the same price...
