There are two logging companies in Hulett. Devils Tower Forest Products and Bearlodge Forest Products. Along with that, we could get Tower Valley Ag Supply and/or W Bar Feed & Ranch Supply and the farm Southwest of town. 3-4 depots is all we really need for a small town. That would be plenty to warrant Devil's Tower getting in the game.

Hulett only has a popuation of 383 as of 2010 so I beleve that if included the number of depots should represent it. 1 logging comapany and 1 farm is what I would expect.

Population shouldn't dictate anything imo. If it has useful depots, add them. You limit the town size with residential buildings, not companies.

While I agree that population shouldn't dictate everything only limiting the residential buildings could make the town feel more industrial than it really is. I understand that due to driving between companys is a big part of the game that more focus should be put on them, I just don't want the town to feel like just industry and nothing else.

I can agree with that. They have to balance it out but that's on the devs to figure out.

With logging operations, as well as mining and some other industries, often the place that trucks would go for pick ups and deliveries are a short drive away from the town that the workers commute from. SCS could handle this simply with a spur road blocked by the yellow XXXX barrier if the town isn't directly on a highway to get to the industry.

I'm kind of thinking that from here out we're going to get a lot more McCall, Idaho type towns in the game. Bonus if they also come with useable gas stations.

^Yeah, I think you are right about McCall. I think I mentioned that somewhere the other day. Until we get to I-35, we should get a lot of McCall. Nice scenic town. But there will be small towns too that will need to be mapped. Those are the Picohe, Ely and Tonopah type towns. On the large mapped towns, I think we could be looking at Salmon or Sandpoint type sizes. While mid sized cities are more like Boise and we can drive thru them.

The huge cities, we can hangup driving thru them. Those are the Seattle's and Portland's. Cheyenne and Casper might be feasible to drive thru as they are Boise type cities.

Laramie should definitely go in since it’s where the state university is. Gillette was more crowded IMO than Cheyenne.

I don't think Laramie gets in because of the university. Moscow, Idaho and Pullman, Washington did not make it in.

I do think Laramie gets in because of its size and its oil refinery.

Laramie gets in because is a big name city if anything. If necessary, SCS can slide Laramie West to create a tad more space from Cheyenne. I don't know if US-287 makes it to Laramie from I-25 but it too can shift pretty easily. Rawlins' is perhaps the next town so there is lots of space Westbound.

Unless SCC provides business 80, the University doesn't make the game. But I think it actually gets in. There are a few things off business 80 that works with ATS and that route is a STAA route. Laramie is a town that I see us being able to drive thru though. I see all of Business 80 making. Which is Grand Ave, thru town to S 3rd St and then to Old Stockyard Rd. We should get exit 310 with both Petro and Pilot truck stops. We might get exit 313 which gets us to S 3rd St as well and then on the East side of town, exit 316.
