Has anyone pre-ordered the New Mexico DLC?

Ask questions about the ATS mod here. If useful they will be added to the Q&A / Development updates.

There is about 50 states in the Usa or about 47,if you leave the 3 states of from that are in the game now and it would cost a lot of money to pay for them all. :(
There is no "about." There are fifty states, one of which would be really silly to try to include since it's in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and moreover has no major trucking at all, and not all that many roads.

Likewise, Alaska will likely not be done until last -- if at all -- because it's a very long drive through Canada, and the state really hasn't much in the way of highways.

Now I'm going to predict that similar to the way SCS released DLC in ETS2, ATS DLC will likely include several states as they move north and east and start working on some of the smaller states.

As you can see, until now we haven't paid for a country but for a fixed amount of hours of work.
There's more involved than just mapping in this game though, and each dlc also puts out a plethora of new assets which to me actually would accrue more hours of work than the actual map does. we must also consider the people who labor on the graphics and coding of the game and programming involved in the game as the base game gets improvements and de-bugging on a regular basis. if it were not for the extra income generated from the DLC we might see the well run dry of this kind of support as well. Its a team effort and in order to keep going and getting better that sometimes involves a bit of incentive on the part of the community and symbiotically they will in turn provide us with what we desire in turn, one sure way of halting the gears of progress is let the money in bank run dry.

I do understand the size and magnitude of the U.S., living there. However, something some of you have not touched on is how sparse the roads and population are here
The roads are indeed sparse though it has more to do with terrain than development in the southwest, potentially it could look as dense as the east in terms of infrastructure if things like geography and geology didn't send people back to the drawing board in terms of what is possible physically and financially. A road through the mountains is exceedingly expensive when you consider all the work that needs to be done by explosives, not just any dynamite will work on some types of rock, to make and even level road surface to traverse with a car at the very least, then comes bridges across canyons, gorges, and ravines that by themselves cost about as much as the rest of the road would. A single road through the mountains could cost billions of dollars for a small section of road.

Anyways the thing is that SCS hasn't said yet whether if you have to pay for owning the New Mexico DLC or not.
I'm not 100% sure, but apologies if they've said that ain't free. G2A ain't an official sponsor of ETS2.
