[WIP] The full real-life ATS 1.35.x Map

Dear ProMods community,

As some of you may know. I'm working on a real-life map of Euro Truck Simulator 2.
I said to myself. If I can do this for ETS2, I can do this for ATS too! So here it is:

A full navigation-map of American Truck Simulator!

The real-life roads are drawn as close to their in-game counterparts as possible.

That was the introduction of what I actually want to share...
As a big thank you to the whole of SCS here are:
The amazing facts of ATS! (In alphabetical order)
Number of states/cities added (only new states, not the states where only a few cities were added):
  • SCS: 6 states, 92 cities
    • Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington
    (Cities & states list)
Length of roadways: (Only highways, country roads and parts of the roads to cities. Not the roads inside cities)
The in-game length was determined by counting the lengths of all roads in the Google My Maps and divide that by 20 (the in-game map-scale is 1:20). (The miles where done by Google)
The result is amazing!! See for yourself:
United States (Whole map, for the part which is visible on the map-view)
  • 3635 km on-map/181.75 km in-game
    2258.68 miles on-map/112.93 miles in-game
Per state that is:

Before one of you guys says it. I want to quote this

I agree with Purno.

Happy Trucking!

I think we should add a ATS subforum so we can post ATS related stuff there :)

I think you missed Santa Clara in the game. Otherwise nice map!

I also find it strange SCS included Oakdale instead of Modesto.

Oh.... I thought it was 1:30 something :/
I wish they had used the same scale as in ETS2.

You're doing a good job on these RL Maps :)
