Hopefully the wind turbine construction site and loads like ETS2:

@Sametbey2. Agreed but more advanced. Can Colorado be the moment we finally get wind turbine deliveries. I can't tell if the entrance is blocked or not. Looks like cargo in the field. The cranes themselves can be cargo as well. Prefab looks great from afar. Check out the cranes putting up the towers. Repurpose the wind fields already in the game so that we can ship there too. I sure hope we can get ST and flatbed like the ones I have in the link. I'd love to get these loads to this site. In my link, there are four components, the blade, the generator, the rotor, the tower and if we include the crane...we get the cab of the crane and the boom itself. That's 6 cargoes for this one prefab.

I found it interesting that no truck is on the cover of colorado's dlc. I assume the next upcoming truck will take the spot once its complete.

On a sidenote, the pete 389 its the only truck so far not in a map expansion cover.
Best Regards

At least not yet. I'd expect the Anthem to take that spot. I think Idaho just did get the Lonestar. There is plenty of time left though. I just added Colorado to the Wishlist. I am super stoked now. I am glad SCS has done so. Get both Idaho and Colorado generating hype. I don't see a reason to not add Colorado. Regardless whether Idaho (or any other state) has released, if the content is ready for blogging/Wishlist, let her rip. Thank you SCS. With the lack of being able to travel now, it is more critical then ever to get the word out sooner than later. With no dates for release, there is no harm in Wishlist on Steam imo.

I was just looking at this thread last night wondering when we can start some hype here. It was at the very bottom looking all sad with only a few pages to its name. Low and behold, SCS pulls out an official blog. Sweet move team.

This is my favorite pic of the blog. Why, I love the rusted realistic look of the farm on this 2 lane road. It gives us another great taste of what to look forward in with the Great Plains and all the farming that it will bring. There are some old abandoned places and they will add to the immerision. The old school windmill is a nice touch. Fits the scene perfectly. Add a few farms on a larger scale of this caliber and we are good. Some deliverable, some not. Not all farms should appear to be new at all. The texturing is great and I look forward in seeing more identity in this type of prefab.

Peterbilt 579 also until now it has not appeared in any art of any state.
ETS2 and ATS are Hella nice!

I love ETS2 and ATS, but I like other games of course!

The Steam cover deosn't have any truck present, but it does show the Million Dollar Highway, so hopefully this means we'll be able to drive that madness.

Fun maps and diagrams.

It's on the map expansion cover for Nevada. Even though Nevada is a free DLC, SCS still made promotional content for it. ;)

Image number two in the Colorado blog is very exciting. Most notably, the brown coloured guardrails that are used in scenic areas are finally making an appearance in ATS! They look very awesome! The overhead sign gantry also looks really interesting. I see the electrical box behind the guardrail next to the sign pole, so it leads me to believe that it may be some sort of electronic sign. It's very intriguing indeed. The scenery in Colorado is also looking very beautiful! :)

Scania trucks are the best, but the Peterbilts are good too.
Road signs are just as important as the road itself.

Also interesting is that this was our longest period of time between teaser and reveal at 20 days. I was considering making a post about it in this thread before the reveal happened, but now it has so might as well go for it. The previous times were
13 days for OR
10 days for WA
8 or 15 days for UT, depending if you count the "somethings cooking" with the smoking bee as the teaser or their initial "where is this" picture dump before they announced the state.
and 0 for Idaho because they just announced it on the stream sans teaser. I bet it took longer since they're simultaneously working on and hyping up Idaho, but I just thought it was interesting to look over.

@supersobes Interesting that they're purposefully colored brown! I never considered that. I always just thought the guardrail was really rusty. :lol: I went to Colorado at the beginning of this month to visit CUBoulder's law school, and my Aunt took us up I-70 to Genesee Park where you can see the continental divide and that's when I first noticed the brown guardrails.

I'm really excited for this state. As someone from a flatter state, being in those mountains above Denver was a lot more impressive than I ever imagined they would be.

Check out my Michigan research map!

Check out my ATS IRL map!
*Las Vegas has been mapped along with all other 1.38 roads, LA and SF are unmapped out of protest for their future rework*

Just like traffic signal poles and sign posts, the guardrails are brown in scenic areas to make them blend in with the environment better. ;)
