Idaho: Sign Here, Please

As you travel through the highways and interstates of Idaho, you will find similar types of road signage that are typically found across the United States, however, there is a unique sign that may catch your eye as you travel.

Image

In fact, it's not one sign, but over 300 signs which have been erected to date across the state, but what exactly are these signs? They are the famous Historical Highway Markers, where Idaho’s highways and history intersect.

The Historical Marker Program, began in 1956 in an effort to preserve the history of the early pioneers and Native Americans who lived and walked in these areas of the U.S. Each one presents a short historical text about the area or event that took place, your general location within the state, the highway you are on and the nearest milepost. These signs are typically found on roadsides or in parking areas off the highways for drivers to pull-over and learn about the historical sites that surround them.

Image

We are excited to feature a number of these unique signs in Idaho for American Truck Simulator, and continue to preserve some of the important history for virtual travellers to learn about. We encourage you to stop and take the time to read some of these Historical Markers when you reach Idaho, as each one has been created in detail to match their real life counterparts.

Those are some decent adaptations! I hope they also add you have to go through the weigh stations, even empty. You have the two lanes, empty and loaded.

hm, looks like its not completely implemented yet

Image

as for speeding, it shows how much over the limit you're going when you get a fine and the first fine is like 400$ depends on the offense and will increase to 1k+ if done again (looks like if done again in short time after the first one). Also noticed that if you speed and catch up to a cop car in front, it wont fine you, but if you over take the cop car going over speed then it will. before it was that even if you speed behind the cop car it will fine you, sooo dunno, it looks like its better now. On my test run i drove 500+ miles speeding and only got fines when passing cops or red lights, or clipping/crashing in to AI. Did not get any tickets out of the blue for speeding like it was before. so it looks like its improved, now i don't see the reason to have the traffic offenses turned off, its not as unreasonable as it was before. so, good job SCS, i guess.

Gonna wait and see how much better it gets in the final version. I also noticed, but it might be just an anomaly, speed camera didn't fined me when doing 1 over the speed limit :emoji50:

TL;DR: Good updates! Not complete, yet. But good updates.

Sounds good C. Small improvement, but makes it more enjoyable. I wait for the official release. Going to swap my engines for the stock ones and disable the sound mods for when the patch comes out.

License talks with Freightliner and Western Star, excellent news! Probably for these trucks:
