... Sooner or later, the livestock trailer will either get confirmed as a new trailer coming, or we will see the AI hauling it. I’d love to see a live trailer and a step deck come in with Colorado. Step decks are much more versatile in the Ag industry.
I want stepdecks too! Not so keen on livestock trailers though, but I won't mind seeing them in traffic.

Having the moon back would be nice.
And regarding dusk and dawn?
It gets darker earlier the more south one is. And it gets light later too. Summer that is.
I prefer usually to drive when it is night, but the more south I get, the darker the night gets.
Scandinavian and Finnish nights = can still enjoy the views at night.
But further down Europe + USA, then the nights too dark, to enjoy the views at night.

A clue for either Colorado, or Iberia map DLC's, will be when the connections come.
As far as I see, Colorado has most of them. Atleast on the western side of Colorado.
How finished the sector that contains US-84 is, I can't remember, but I-25 is not finished. When those are finished, then Colorado should be close.
And for Iberia, there road connections from Bordeaux and Perpignan to south should be a clue. And maybe even a city or 2, in France?
This. I am hoping some day for a Finnoscandia expansion so the nights are super short in the summer.

If far enough north, sun up 24/7.
And no actual night, even a bit more sout.
For that to come to USA, we would need Canada and Alaska for USA.

I agree with having Limon as a scenic city, I just hope there’s a delivery point on he east end of the 70 so we can drive the Great Plains as far as possible. Burlington could work. I just want to have more of the 79, and Kansas is goi; got be a ways away but then we get more of the 70.

I suspect Burlington will be our Eastern most mapped city. US-385 @ I-70 is a good terminating point imo. There's a Loves truck stop, a couple feedlots and farming that can all go under Burlington. Its not a very big town but definitely worth of being the last stop on I-70 for Colorado. Either way, US-385 North to South should be our Eastern most road. Kansas doesn't have a lot of big cities but the next big city I see East of Denver is Salina, Kansas. We will need 1-2 smaller towns to be mapped along that stretch along with a few scenic towns.

I think between Burlington and Salina we'll definitely get Hays. At 20,000+ residents, that's enormous by western Kansas standards.

Between Burlington and Hays there's still too much room, so I would also expect to see Colby or Oakley. I think Goodland may be too close to Burlington.

Edit: Ok, I did some minimal research on google maps and found that 20,000+ is not necessarily huge here. Hays is the biggest town in this area that is directly on I-70. Outside of I-70, large towns in Kansas west of I-35 are Hutchinson, Great Bend, Dodge City, Garden City, and Liberal. There may not be enough space to put all of them into ATS.

I expect Dodge to make it. Liberal isn't really needed. Both have National Beef plants. Dodge is the more famous and well known of the 2. Garden City has a beef plant and International Paper plant there that ships mainly cardboard for the meat plants.

Seems like not much space for HH or ST trailers there.
