Oklahoma - Cities and Settlements #1

A trucker’s journey consists of more than complex highways or wonderful nature, which is why there’s always the need to include numerous detailed cities and settlements in every additional expansion of American Truck Simulator to perfectly capture the whole "picture" of the local land. The upcoming Oklahoma DLC will be no exception, so today we will show you four of the cities that are arriving in the game with the Sooner State.

First up is Guymon with a population of about 12,000 people, which makes it the biggest small city that is located in the panhandle of Oklahoma. While in general, the city has a rich history and a strong community spirit, most importantly for us, the city's main source of business comes from large livestock farms and meat processing factories. Even though a local food factory may not seem like too much work at first glance, the entire area will provide to be a perfect starting point for your journey across Oklahoma.

Next, we have Enid, a city with a history closely intertwined with the expansion of the railway system in America. It’s no coincidence the city was originally supposed to be called Skeleton Station, but, well, let’s just say it sounds less catchy than as we know it today.

The city is surrounded by flat land and wheat fields, which is why a silo depot will most likely be your main place of visit when you will find yourself in the area. However, the city center is rich in landmarks such as a hospital, police and fire station, local school, and more.

Lawton is primarily known for its local Tire Factory for which we have created a brand-new depot (as shown in our previous New Industries blog). The factory is a significant part of the city's economy and the investments and state support are increasing every year. Moreover, the city is also home to a large paper mill, which we've added to the game as well. It's also worthwhile taking some time to see the interesting water tanks and churches in the area.

Lastly, we have Idabel, the smallest town in Oklahoma in the upcoming DLC. It is located in the southeast corner and the main point of interest for the players will certainly be the adjacent Sawmill. Additionally, it's worth a visit to see the Museum of the Red River, which is an unusually futuristic structure considering the local area. Other landmarks in Idabel include the fire station, hospital, high school, and water tanks.

And finally, we have some screenshots for you of the local settlements you will be able to pass through while cruising through Oklahoma. Can you guess which small towns are present in the following screenshots?

In conclusion, these cities and settlements will offer diverse experiences for players to enjoy. We can’t wait for you to check out the second part of this blog topic in the future and we’d suggest following our social media (TwitterInstagramFacebookTikTok) to not miss out on any potential updates.
