Odessa is the namesake village in UD: Odessa. It is served by US 1 and DE 26. The town is home to a church, school, tiny gas station, fast food restaurant and the police station, and is the western portal to the Odessa Hill Tunnel. Odessa has a very similar layout to the real life village of Odessa, DE.

Prior to the July 2016 updates, Odessa was a very small town which was home to the truck spawn as well. The truck spawn has moved to Bordenville, and the village is more compact- with the majority of it sitting in the center median of US 1.

Reminder Edit

Tall vehicles (large trucks, arrow board truck, buses) cannot use the Odessa Hill Tunnel or the Betts Creek Bridge due to restricted height clearances. These vehicles must use DE 26 or US 40 (via US 1) to cross I-95. The tunnel is better used for a shortcut or police chase due to height restrictions.

Speed limits Edit

There are no speed limit signs in the village, so speed limits are as follows:

  • 30-35 mph (48-56 km/h) in built up area
  • 30 mph (48 km/h) on Odessa Hill Tunnel access road
  • 60 mph (97 km/h) outside built up area on US 1
  • 50 mph (80 km/h) on DE 26 west of Odessa

Trivia Edit

  • The Odessa Hill Tunnel is not marked as a tunnel on the minimap.
  • Given that Odessa is highly compacted and weirdly built (There is an unmarked street passing the Pit Stop in Odessa linking the two directions of US 1) it is possible that prior to US-1's construction or to a rerouting, Odessa was a decent sized town however the construction/rerouting of US-1 plowed right through the center of Odessa, devastating the village, then as the village recovered it was more compacted and built around the highway. This is also proven by taking Old Odessa Parkway straight to 1-95 where it dead ends to see an abandoned foundation.
  • Odessa is the only place of settlement in the UDU to be built on a highway which goes through and splits off a village (DE 26).
