Colorado Discussion Thread

#1 Post by Marcello Julio » 07 Nov 2019 14:15

With Utah released today, I think it's time for us start discussing about Colorado state!

With 1.36, SCS added some models related to Colorado, including the US-6 bridge pillar towards Glenwood Canyon and the CO Route 17 Sign.

This more proves that Colorado may be the second state in the next year after Idaho that also had models added at 1.36!

Obviously all these information are theories for now, nothing official of course ;)

Update 26 February 2020: 1.37 Open Beta added in def.scs references to dlc_colorado.

Update 6 March 2020: SCS shared a short video on a teaser in the blog showing Colorado.

Update 26 March 2020: SCS Confirms that Colorado is the second State of 2020!

OP mentioned Colorado as the second state for next year, no need to jump on his throat.


I usually don't subscribe to the state discussion boards, but seeing as I have been to Colorado and have Family there, I made an exemption. I'm going to find it interesting how scs handles the Rockies and the bypass of the Eisenhower Tunnel the trucks have to take since they're not permitted in the tunnel.

I'm excited to hop in Utah and see all the signs pointing to my favorite (and current home) state in the USA!

Colorado WILL be a truly epic state, from the highest roads in the United States, to rolling endless plains, to massive active mines, to the bustling sprawling metropolis of Denver.

Even "just" I-70 will be incredible, as one of the most expensive and last part of the original interstate highway system to be completed, this will be an interstate like none other in the game.

This shows the range of landscapes you can expect in Colorado! Such a diverse state.

I look forward to it however I wish they had a better scale for the map. 1/10 would have been far better and would have had room for some of the better features in the mountians. I hope my home town ends up in the map its the last town before you get into Kansas. Not much here but cattle and other agriculture, However we do have a Safeway, Family Dollar and dollar General so at least there is something. At the scale the map is its going to be hard to represent some of the better passes to drive in the mountains such as Loveland, Wolf Creek and Vail, Not to mention Floyd Hill coming down into Denver.

@IvanKuz
Actually Glenwood Canyon (picture 2) is already confirmed to be in Colorado! In the OP post, you can see some of the bridge supports for the Glenwood Canyon highway are already in the game.
Plus, it's the MOST ICONIC part of the major East-West Interstate of Colorado so like, it HAS to be in. Before the interstate was finished in the 90s (It took about 40 years to finish I-70 through Colorado, and that canyon was the final part to be built), there was a railroad constructed through the canyon, and the modern dome car was first conceived directly because of the fabulous views in the canyon.

Thanks for the info! I'm not very familiar with most of the US, so I had no idea I was talking about such an iconic landmark. Good to know it's guaranteed to be in the game, I googled some more images of it and it's really a stunning view.
