Ohio Pre Research

#1 Post by KeganMinecraft » 12 Oct 2022 08:35

After Kraake posted various threads for current planned future DLC research tips, I decided to make my own, but for a bit further off DLC I hope to one day see as none have been made in years: OHIO. I figured that at worst, this thread won't help SCS (due to lack of planning for this DLC, or maybe it never makes it out for some reason, etc), but at best, it can help their research efforts not only for this particular state, but also for other states (Iowa is similar in many ways to many other states).

I might as well copy over this list of other states which SCS has made research threads for:


Other Unofficial Research Threads

Keep in mind this thread is not part of that list, nor is it part of their official research, just something I wanted to share due to my hopes of seeing this DLC eventually be made.

This State can be divided into 5 Main Regions

  • Huron-Erie Lake Plains
  • Till Plains
  • Interior Low Plateaus Bluegrass Section
  • Allegheny Plateaus
  • Glaciated Allegheny Plateaus

Ohio has a lot of companies so lets go through them all

      • Big Lots (Supermarket)
      • American Greetings (Cards/Poetry)
      • Bath and Body Works (Retail/Beauty)
