Nope, not at all, lol. Alaska has more roads than only (4) states. I'll still buy it just like any other dlc though.

Speaking of the Great White North, I wonder how the Canadian provinces will go. Ontario and Quebec are so huge. @flight50 Does your info source give a listing of road miles for Canadian provinces/territories?

its pretty crowded at the lower part of Ontario but it gets more spaced out as you go north. so it shouldn't be TOO bad when they are done with the bottom part

@Xaagon I assume you are referencing the Rand McNally. Yes it does cover Canada. SCS has this book but I wonder if ProMods does. Sounds like a question I should ask them on discord.

Area wise Montana is larger but road network and content needed for Montana is a totally different ball game. We have to remember that its not about the area of the state, its about the density of roads and cities in that dlc that SCS has to map. Germany has perhaps 50% more content that will go into it vs Montana.

Luckily for us, Montana will be newer mapping methods from scratch and paid. Paid means we pay SCS for another timed dlc and not a project they do when they have time. Montana will have time made for it. Not to mention the ATS team is independent of the ETS2 team.
