Beta (City of) Los Injurus 2020-04-10

The large city of Los Injurus welcomes you with an update!

  1. bob.blunderton
    Please CLEAR CACHE first before you run the updated version of the map. Otherwise, some objects could face the wrong way and appear very poorly aligned - like road-blocking poorly aligned.
    The game won't know sources have changed, and gives you the old models facing in a new (wrong!) direction as it is still pulling the same original (older) stuff from game cache folders generated when you first ran the map.
    If this will be your first time playing Los Injurus, or your first time running *ANY* version of Los Injurus in 0.19.x, you should be OK and NOT have to clear cache - but it doesn't hurt to do it anyway.

    First, a big thanks to the Patreon supporters, for the last year I could not have done it without you! Commercial software is expensive. See the Patreon link at the bottom if you'd like to help support the continued development of this map.
    Supporters get updates every 3 weeks VS the public update here getting updated every 3~4 months.

    Consider joining the Patreon today as I am physically disabled and on a fixed income. I could really use the support to help pay for assets and monthly/yearly commercial software fees!
    New update, featuring the city stretching over to the abandoned mall, where it's *drum roll* more abandoned and run-down. Also, more miles of highway has been upgraded, and there will be some new buildings and different roads featured.
    AI on inner loop of highway through the city is great, the outer loop's AI is pretty broken but will still sort-of work. Outer loop of highway is under massive re-construction at the moment and is only temporarily held together with shoe-strings so you can drive it.

    Media and screenshots are from the first version, download the new one to see what's new! I will update them when I have time.

    As seen on YBR on YouTube:

    The Mystery Building near the end of this video near where he explores the abandoned mall is the old Packard plant from Detroit. It's not 100% the same layout but the asthetic is similar enough to enjoy seeing it in-game.
    City with the following roads:
    50 unique miles of highway
    75 miles of surface road
    15 miles of dirt trail
    150+ miles of AI paths and that's being conservative.
    Several miles of subway, YES, SUB WAY. Some train tracks, too - WiP
    Figures are approximate and generally low-balled to be on the safe side.
    Video review(s):

    Video above by Neilogical in English.

    Video above by GermanCommentGamer in German language - Danke!

    Videos added in, in the order I find them. Thank-you for the video review(s). As this map is very large, it may be difficult if not impossible for reviewers to show the entire map, please keep that in mind.

    This is a real city. A Bob Blunderton sized map that everyone should be able to run provided they have 6~8GB of system memory (RAM)
    On LOWEST setting, various integrated graphic solutions, laptops, or even a lowly 6570 1GB DDR3 equipped card can run this in a playable fashion, even if the host processor is a first-generation (900 series not 9000 series) i7 950 on an OEM HP computer with stock 1333mhz RAM.
    If you can run West Coast, you can generally run this map.
    WARNING: HIGH texture detail REQUIRES 6~8GB of VIDEO RAM (memory that's part of your graphics card, not system memory). If you don't know how much you have, try low, then medium.
    That being said, even an RX 470 8gb or RX 480 8gb will be able to run this with reflections ON, with good frames per second.

    This map features modeling tactics that reduce draw calls, take advantage of batching, and don't go crazy on the triangle count so your PC can concentrate on what matters - traffic - and yes this map supports it.

    Enough of that though. Now for the features!
    Above mentioned roads - roads everywhere - if you recognize this map it's built off the old deprecated So-Cal Interstate (warning, it will conflict with that map, that resource is being removed), so all the old roads you loved are still there or are vastly improved upon with city built there.
    There is one MASSIVE civilian airport (needs it's two longer runways but has two medium length ones), with 145 gates and hundreds upon hundreds of parking spots. Feature 5 concourses and one large main terminal with bi-level arrivals and departure.

    It's near the four-way flyover called 'the Stack', which is a feature in and of itself.

    Features some partially double-decker highway as you descend/ascend the mountain to/from the industrial area.

    Brain-bending interchanges galore - and some normal ones, too.

    SUBWAYS! YES! With stations you can drive right into/out of, too!

    A remote air-strip on the opposite side of the map as the airport (this will eventually be an Air Force base), so you have a destination when flying.

    It's got it's own dirt track in a looping fashion, you'll find that not too far from the city, but you have to find it!

    It's got an ABANDONED MALL YOU CAN DRIVE IN! Because why not?
    Two levels of retail history to crash about inside of and around.

    A facsimile of the abandoned Packard plant is also present near the abandoned mall.

    The Frank Douglas towers from Chicago (IIRC), before they were abandoned, are also featured here.

    A full arrangement of stores to serve only the best!

    Realistic low-poly homes (mostly) optimized for FPS:

    Tall apartment towers and condos!

    ...and so much more! Come see it today!

    This map is a continual work-in-progress. Features subject to change without notice. Map is funded by many kind folks on Patreon, link below:
    Please help this map project cover software costs associated with commercial modeling and graphic software (to say the least), and help with replacing my dying RX 480 8gb video card, which works but has to be down-clocked to be stable. I am disabled and on a fixed income, so even a dollar a month is great, it helps me cover software costs, asset purchases, and stave off hardware failure. It does not go to needless upgrades or 'I want' things.

    This map also contains a complete 900-piece Modular Road Kit (the MRK) complete with everything you need to build your own city and everything you see in this one. Those roads aren't all one piece like West Coast, they're all modular. So have a look around, see what you like, pop open the forest brush and have a go at it. Most of it is categorized, and any updated pieces in the future will be drop-in-replacements requiring little to no additional work (beyond file copying) by the mapper.
    Everything is in the shapes/MRK folder inside the map except the subway stations which are under shapes/buildings/metrocity folder with the building structures. All pieces in this map may be used by others with credit AND a link-back to this resource - this was a big part of this map's purpose.

    P.S. I am slowly building a credit list for user submitted buildings, which so far includes:
    Brother Dave - Rural Hotel - not yet used in the map
    Fufsgfen - Tall bank tower - not yet used in the map
    Ghost - size-spec for large variety of flood control canal, no models used, textures may be imported at a later date, will update if necessary
    MitchB25 (if I remember correctly) - benches, a few odds and ends signs from Expressway (Australia) map (older map).
    BeamNG - awesome base game from which many textures and a few models here and there are drawn from, though much of the buildings and homes are my own creation, except a lone abandoned service station, the new ECA service stations, and the ECA concept area on the far side of the lake (this will be torn down and re-made but the car-stunt area and school will stay).
    If I've forgotten someone, and I just may have, please send me a private message, explaining what asset was donated, even if it wasn't used yet or otherwise 'you can't find it in the map', I might just not have gotten to it yet.

    To those who submitted homes, and the homes aren't in yet, be aware that is top-priority now that the map is out. Please be patient, you'll receive a free private update when it's in!

    AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE SO-CAL INTERSTATE MAP, AND THIS ONE, YOU *WILL* HAVE PROBLEMS, please delete so_cal_interstate zip from your PC before running this or they WILL conflict.

    If you are a popular Youtube personality and review maps, PLEASE DO, and I can add it to the resource page!

    Technical issues, loading errors, glitchy badness, or asset rights questions?

    If you have an issue, or other technical error, or feel the need to complain, please contact me in the discussion forum tab above this listing first, so I can give you some trouble-shooting options. Please also have your BeamNG log handy which is located in documents/beamng.drive folder, and post it. Please also try loading the game with ONLY this mod.

    Fine print:
    NO assets in this map were ported, copied, or otherwise used from other commercial intellectual property (except where assets may have been purchased from appropriate legal asset retailers), games, past or present other than BeamNG Drive itself. Likenesses to business may be coincidental but are within the realm of free speech and artistic freedoms of the United States constitution.
    That being said if you still have an issue with myself or my map, legal or not, feel generally offended or find something in the map is too offensive, please contact me in private so we can resolve this properly in a timely manner. Please allow 72 hours for a reply. Thank-you for trying Los Injurus mod.

    100+ fps on a pny 2080super and an older amd ryzen 1700 doing 45% load on the gpu itself. Seems to be good, drops down here and there but its to be expected of only 32 gb ram and a single card. Great job of the map, im glad its been updated as ive had issues with it in the past.
    1. bob.blunderton

      The RTX series of cards are overkill for the map, and will make short work of it, provided you have 8gb of VRAM like you do.
      32GB of system RAM is more than plenty. 16GB is usually enough for most folks if you don't run too many AI vehicles (the more AI, the more RAM used, especially on larger maps like mine).
      The 2070 Super 8gb / 3950x / 32gb RAM that I have here for traffic testing (which is why it works as much as it does) really lets the game do what it's made to do, though anything past a Ryzen 3900x & up-coming 5900x 12-core chips provide diminishing returns until you get onto the Threadripper or intel XEON platforms with 4, 6, and 8 channel memory.
      A 2060 Super 8gb or 1070ti / 1080 8gb card will run this just fine with room to spare above 60fps. It's the processor that gets hit hard on this map, due to the amount of detail and sheer amount of objects in the map. I am working on reducing this load and handing it over more to the GPU but it does take a lot of work. Most purpose-built 4ghz gaming machines will have zero trouble keeping 60fps here, even before I optimize it more.
      You have a *very* good system, I would hang onto that for a long time personally, for it can run almost anything.
      If you want higher FPS or more vehicles, get the newest Ryzen processor that your board can readily handle or is compatible with (DO check before buying!), this will help all DX11 titles not be as CPU bound (Direct X 11 and lower games forward the render data for everything on the scene to the GPU via a single CPU core, so whatever your max all-core-turbo speed is, that is used here in this game).
      I hope something here helped - as it may help others too.
      --Glad you like the map and look forward to what you'll think of the update coming out not too long from now!

    The best of the best map. Inspired me to make and improve my maps. Size with substance! The custom assets make it unique.
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      Thanks a bunch. I love map making even if it's sometimes a bit costly for my fixed income - I feel this is a good balance between size and detail - though much more detail is yet to come.
      The coming update in a few weeks will enlarge the city quite a bit and add a lot more things to see in the map... and of course a lot more things to go flying off of at various speeds.

    the amount of thought, time, and detail you put into this map is just truly incredible
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      Thank-you Sir, it means a lot.
      The time spent creating this map and the models for it, has well passed the 5000-hour mark, and I've since lost count. It does take a very long time to make very complicated maps like this one but it's very very rewarding when I do, as I enjoy playing it as much as making it. A few things can get a bit monotonous as I always say but in the end, that's a small price to pay to bring so many people a good time.

    I am giving this only three stars, because I value quality over quantity.

    Of course I understand that it needs to be FPS friendly as well.
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      It's not done yet. Of course it won't be quality, not until it's much further along. This review should have more substance, what was good, what was bad, etc. Can't improve things if I don't know what's wrong. You should hit the discussion tab and say how it can be improved while it's being made.
      Those who value quantity can enjoy the mods. For those striving for quality, you'll have to look around some, both in the map and at other mods.
      There's surely a handful of good quality maps, a handful of good quality vehicles such as the Olds Fullsize (of course!) and the Minivan (yes I used to own two) based off the Pessima, among many many others.
      So, really, go enjoy the mall, that you can enter and bumble around in, race down the over 50 miles of unique highway present in the map, and likely 100~200 miles of other roads that are just... everywhere. Why, this map is virtually INFESTED with roads. Good thing it's a driving simulator.

      I could make this map super-duper detailed, but know that with 6gb & 8gb graphics cards making up barely 25%~40% of Steam surveys (which varies month to month), that I can't really cram more detail into a map so big.
      As the game engine itself gets more mature, I can afford to cram larger assets into VRAM, while knowing I can unload ones I don't need, all without going over the user's VRAM limits. Right now while developing this on an 8gb graphics card, I am roughly at the limits (and sometimes over) what an 8gb card can do (I use a bit more than the average player would).
      So the TL DR on it is, I can't really push too much higher quality (refinement yes) as far as model complexity goes. PC tech isn't quite there yet unless you have a team of hundreds of people working to make the city and the game engine itself like Rockstar does.
      However, rest assured, when the next-gen graphics cards come along, and get to a decent price range, and many of us then have 16gb~24gb graphics cards, I will add some more detail surely. The city is very modular and hence the models can be easily upgraded just by swapping files and reloading the map.

      Awesome, glad you like it. It will be so much more when it's done though, so do keep eyes peeled for a new version coming out in the next 30 days which has a lot more to it.

    This map is really amazing! It is also super FPS friendly! I play BeamNG on a laptop and this map works absolutely great for me. I have yet to try spawning traffic here, but this map is soooo big too! Definitely get this map!

      Thanks for the performance feedback! It's super-duper useful here, as I lack having a bunch of different computers to test this on.
      While I still have quite a few more loose ends to tie up in the performance department (read: to-do more optimizations), it should run pretty well for the amount of detail and the density of detail. As I go along, you'll notice the distant objects getting a little nicer looking while the fps still goes up between versions (or stays the same but adds more detail).
      I believe I will have a new public-facing version next month around mid-month. So in due time, every few months I will be updating the public-facing version (it'll also get updated if the game updates murder it - same policy with my other maps).

      Those who just can't wait, can hop on the supporter beta via the Patreon (which is to support asset, texture, sound, and software purchases for this map, it gets EXPENSIVE fast, and open-source software doesn't always cut it), and you'll get access to a new version (via link) emailed to you about roughly every 20~25 days.
      Thank-you for taking the time to write-in and participate in the public beta. Even for folks not in on the Patreon supporter-beta crowd, you can still join in or follow the discussion thread linked above these reviews to suggest/complement/complain about something/anything.
      --Cheers and enjoy the map!

    Please if you can add some bus routes it would be amazing.
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      Bus routes are planned. I have no date set for these, but as the city itself gets filled out more, you'll definitely see a city's-worth of these.
      This isn't a little piece of a city, this is going to be a whole city, of 'almost AAA quality'. So look forward to plenty of them, and plenty of everything else we all love in a car accident / driving simulator!

    Your creations are insane. Every single map is a masterpiece. Thank you for your mods. It's just awesome what you can do with this game. It takes a lot of time to create a map and you top it all of. Thank you for your work and stay safe out there!
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      It's got to look good yes, maybe not AAA quality but close enough to get immersed - but above all that it's got to be FUN while not forgetting about the mission objective... to speed around and crash the car up into a tin can!
      Surely there's a good hour or more of just driving around on the roads seeing the sights here, and on Roane County, too.
      I like to fire up the game and just drive when I'm not making maps; so if that's you, you're 100% in the right place. Custom content abounds - this map is chock full of it - in-fact I learned to model just for this map.
      Both Roane County (once) and this map (twice) required raising the AI max limits to enable me to properly create all the AI routes (200+ miles of them) and the like, to give a realistic feel. It's not perfect by any rate, nor complete. However, it'll certainly provide you with hours of entertainment, whether it's exploring and seeing the sights, or searching for hidden things in out-of-the-way places, going way too fast in places you should not, or just trying out the dozens upon dozens of improvised jumps.
      When it's done, it'll feel like a melting-pot of all the open-world driving 3D games we've been playing over the last 20 years or so, even if it takes years to finish. Being physically disabled and often 'stuck here' at the PC. I don't have much better to do, and just playing games isn't nearly as fulfilling as making them. One day it will be done, as I will be on this project until it is, then going back to finish Roane County (and back-port a bunch of house / building etc models back to Roane County from this).
      Thanks a bunch for the nice review & glad you had a good time.

    Love this map! One of the best city maps on BeamNG!
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      Thanks bud. Appreciate you are so thankful for what is easily thousands of hours of work per map. This shows what this game is capable of, I feel many of the maps for this game short of Italy and East Coast / maybe Utah while beautiful are merely a taste of what this game can truly do.
      When it's further along and most of the city is built, I'll be adding a career / campaign / story into this map that will come with it.
      In-fact several limits have been removed or raised significantly since/ because I've been working on this map (and Roane County).
      While I am sure AAA game studio maps could easily outclass this in detail or graphic fidelity (especially because they have whole teams and bottomless budgets by comparison to me), there's nothing stopping me from cramming tons of fun stuff into this map.
      My knowledge from growing up in construction and engineering skills, and bottomless amounts of time (being I'm physically disabled) finally come in handy.
      Just don't forget, I'm making this map as much for me as I am for you and the rest of the folks who total about 100,000 people (that download this map) currently. So it's GOT to be fun!

      HINT: if things don't look placed correctly (like walls under bridges etc), clear cache, start the game, and then load the map & it should fix. This only applies if you ran the old public version of Los Injurus before running the more recent release that just came out.
