The American West Project aims to make the West feel more authentic by revamping scenery and adding in details. For example, the region is famous for its outdoors and stunning recreation areas. Added national forest boundary signs, summit/continental divide elevation signs, and Native American reservation boundary signs (based off their real-life counterparts) help reflect this. Scenery in some areas is also changed, mostly by swapping the generic and unathentic default pine trees to the more natural ponderosa pines from the New Mexico DLC. The result is a West that feels more like the West.
