Texas - Cities & Settlements #1

Here comes the first blog post in 2022! And we think it's a good idea to start with something big. Something Texas-sized even! You know, everything is bigger in Texas. At least that’s what they say. And while the term itself probably originates from the state’s enormous geographical area, Texas used to have six of the fifteen fastest-growing cities in America up until the year 2015. Perhaps, thanks to this, there are bigger populated areas filled to the brim as well. Let’s take a look at some of the Cities and Settlements that will be featured in the upcoming Texas DLC and find out!

San Angelo

The local residents of San Angelo have a lot to be proud of. From rich flora to numerous historically important structures and facilities, this city certainly offers a fresh feeling when you are on a long journey driving through the vast and complex system of roads in Texas. Additionally, the city thrives economically as well, constantly being ranked as one of the best "smaller" towns for business.


The city of Waco will undoubtedly charm you with its energetic atmosphere, which always guarantees an interesting visit in the heartland of Texas. The area is full of history, economic opportunity, and a rich variety of cultural experiences. The city became an important commercial center during the late nineteenth century, which managed to attract a number of educational institutions and businesses, that have helped form Waco into what it is today.


Quite uniquely, Galveston is a coastal resort city and port off the Southeast Texas coast on Galveston Island and Pelican Island. Due to this exceptional location, the city became internationally important for immigration and trade in the mid-19th century. Thereafter, during the 1920s and 1930s, Galveston re-emerged as a major tourist destination, which it still is to this very day - with the additional focus on history and historical buildings.


Situated in the grasslands and surrounded by dense prairie, Amarillo is well known for its urbanization, agricultural farming, and construction. This city was named after the yellow sub-soil and the yellow blooms on the area’s Yucca plants. You may be wondering, what does the yellow color have anything to do with it then? It’s because the word amarillo means yellow in Spanish.

Apart from discovering the beautiful cities mentioned above, you will also be able to pass through some of the settlements shown in the following screenshots. While we could spend hours upon hours talking about them and their rich history and economy, we’ll give you the opportunity to show off your exploration skills and let us know which towns are featured in the pictures. Tell us in the comments!

It seems like everything is indeed bigger in the Lone Star State, and our Texas DLC will hopefully make the saying proud. Please keep in mind, however, that some of the textures in the screenshots are still a work in progress, but if you can’t wait to see the areas in full glory, add the map expansion to your Steam Wishlist and eventually you will be able to explore all these areas by yourself!
