    Really good, I like how it's pretty FPS-friendly for its size.

    I love this map, but I've tried it on 3 different computers and it always seems like no matter what vehicle I use the vehicle shakes. It's especially noticeable from the interior camera but upon close inspection the vehicle shaking is visible from all cameras.

      That's the game, not my map. Big maps do that for some reason.

    AMAZING MAP!

    This level is perfect for top-speed excitement in a very fast car. The sheer scale of this map is is breathtaking, and the roads are very well-crafted.

    The entire map is laid out very well - it feels as though modeled on a real place, with large geographic features, and realistic roads that are perfectly tailored to the landscape.

    The spawn point places you at a convenient cross-roads near one end of the map. There are 3 main highways that criss-cross the desert leading out from this point, some connecting roads, as well as a couple very fast dirt roads and some asphalt ones that will lead you up a tough hill-climb to the map's highest geographical feature.

    The main highway roads are very, VERY fast drives that will limit your top speed by grades, elevation changes, and your ability to keep your car from taking flight, more than the actual curves! I've rode cars over 230 MPH barrelling down-hill on some of the roads. The map feels very linear/rectangular, and most of the roads loop around or connect at intersections for a nice flow while exploring. The asphalt material extends very graciously past the (visible) road surface, giving you some extra buffer at high-speed.

    If you know where to look, you can find a very comfortable estate overlooking an oasis, raging whitewaters, a canyon, a few small hilly sierras that you can drive straight through at high speed, a hydroelectric power plant, sweeping washes of desert where you can see miles, a small farm in the center, various radio communication towers and facilities around the edges, and a small town with it's own air-base.

    The real enjoyment of this map comes from it's sheer size, and realistic feel, much like "Tennessee" map. It took me days to explore all of this environment, and it happens to be the first environment where I have run out of fuel before destroying my vehicle! Some areas of this map feel like I am playing an old-school Need For Speed game - you just don't get this kind of amazing level design in today's popular "racing" franchises. This is quality.

    Areas for improvement:

    -Right now much of the material covering the non-road areas is the same. Add some small rocks and roughen up the areas bordering the roads. Right now I can drive straight off the road and across the whole map without much difficulty in a regular car. Use features/props found in the BeamNG "Utah" environment to make the off-road areas more rugged. Right now it's very hard to have a bad crash if you run off the road. Make it more dangerous!

    -Some of the water features (like the river running down from the lake) look very rough, and could use some refinement. Right now there is water running downhill at steep angles, and if you add some small water falls, and flatten out the water in between, or add rocks, it will look more realistic. You can even make a small dirt road following it into a small off-road/rally course, it would add a nice feature to the map.

    -The hairpin/intersection at the "opposite" end of the map needs to be built up a bit more... right now it forms a pretty awkward spot. It would be nice to have a town, some landmarks, or something here to make the curve more recognizable... maybe bank it a little bit as well. Right now it just comes out of nowhere.

    Please keep updating this map, I'd love to keep exploring it!

    Had this map before when it was 0.8. After the update, I try loading this in, and I think beamng drive froze to the extend where I had to restart the computer to get rid of the errors. Now i'm so happy!
