California Rework - Oakland & San Jose

We have another update regarding the third phase of the California Rework project for you, our #BestCommunityEver! This time, we will give you a glimpse of the reworked cities of Oakland and San Jose in the Bay Area.

San Jose presented us with a delightful challenge with its diverse districts and lively neighborhoods. We did not have this city in ATS until now, but could not leave it out. Driving through the city, you can see the bustling airports and thriving commercial zones, the busy industrial sectors, and cozy residential areas; the city pulses with the heartbeat of American life.

At the heart of our rendition lie the dynamic intersections of US-101 and I-880, where the city's spirit truly shines. We couldn't resist including two standout airports, each with its own unique flair, including an aviation museum that adds a touch of history. Another prominent site in San Jose is the large Voltison car factory placed on the edge of the city. 

The Oakland port is what this city is important for in the real world and will be the main attraction for truckers in our game. There are several depots and a lot of new assets, as well as amazing views of the San Francisco skyline on one side and Oakland's downtown on the other.

The downtown, full of tall skyscrapers, is connected to the port by a winding series of underpasses under the railroad and the highway. This connection and multi-level traffic arrangement offers unique views and adds to the character of the area. 

Truckers will be able to drive through Oakland on Interstate I-880, which goes near the downtown and separates it from the harbor. This interstate then heads north to a huge freeway interchange - the so-called McArthur Maze. From there it's just a short drive to the tollgate and the Bay Bridge, which connects Oakland to Treasure Island and, of course, San Francisco.

We hope you are excited about the release of the third phase of the California Rework project and to visit the reimagined cities of Oakland and San Jose. Stay tuned for more updates, as we continue to cultivate a virtual California that mirrors the real thing on our X/TwitterInstagramFacebookTikTok.
