Should skip Mexico completely and build Oregon, Washington, British Columbia because American or Canadian truck driver would never risk delivering goods to Tijuana not realistic. They only recently lifted the restrictions on 25 mile border buffer on Mexican truck drivers delivering goods, and most trucks in Mexico would never meet USA or Canada standards or safety. Most goods destined to Mexico are dropped off at Laredo or San Diego so that Mexican truck driver will take into their country.

Hope that attaching trailers would be a little more complex, even getting out to raise or lower landing gear, or getting the 5th wheel and kingpin to connect perfectly would be a real treat. Also realistic trucks speeds when pressing the gas, most trucks are very slow at acceleration even when bob tailing.

I've noticed that there are always states missing in the American Trucking simulators (Just any, like 18WOS) Some include, Ohio (Ohio has 2 Major hubs) New England area of the US just doesn't have anything.)

I updated the first post, if yall can check my truck model of the kenworth I think its a W900, could be a 379 anslo but according to my research kenworth doesnt make those anymore and from what I have seen its all new trucks in the game.

Also someone in the alpha picture thread http://www.trucksim.org/threads/alpha-pictures-heavy-image-load.2137/ said they saw a freightliner cascadia all of the trucks in those pics look to be peterbuilts or kenworth like we have seen if I'm wrong please let me know.
