    Looking at the size of the mod, I thought, "Oh my. This is not going to be pretty." But then I went into the map and it was like magic! I can't believe a map of this size actually runs well on my comp---I mean potato. Nice job!

      A good bit of optimization went into this - but also true for the game engine. I'd say a year ago it ran a bit worse, but now it is much better. So yes, the spud isn't out for the count yet. She lives to die another day.
      Thank-you for the review, enjoy the open highway, that was one of this game's first realistic highways all the way back in 2016.
      --Cheers!

      Yes I get you 100%. I love this mod. Still have a trouble ticket in with the developers about it. I have tried deleting tons of assets and can't figure out what's stopping this from loading. Also, another person can load it below, he may have fewer mods than you or I, but I am looking into what's causing the instability with the game. When I find out what's causing it, I will post the fix OR a how-to & send you a message. I want to play it too (I love this map), so you're not the only one!
      Rest assured, it's being looked into (but I can't do much until the dev's get back on it or there's some type of game update). In the mean-time, try deleting the cache folder for this map which is:
      "documents\beamng.drive\cache_15.x.x.x\levels\hiway2"
      Remove only this folder.
      Move your mods (Except if you wish to add back a vehicle or something that you want to drive in it), to a safe place like a folder on the desktop or something similar, and try loading it then. It may or may not load for you.
      Will make effort to see if adding old model cache from old game version will help fix this. I have an old game version here (13.x) that it fires right up in - but this map DOES have OLD assets dating back 3+ years, so who knows.
      Will keep you informed. If you get any luck getting it running, let me know in discussion forum for this map or message me directly.

      I will look into this more over the coming week. Thanks for letting me know, and enjoy the map.

      This was my first map, an almost-complete overhaul of the road network, adding many times more roads, done with permission from the original author of Black Hills. It was too few roads in the original map, to not have more chance to view the scenery, or cruise on a highway to seemingly nowhere in the desert.

    Awesome map. Lots of roads, long straights and even some mountain roads. It runs really well on my computer as well. The so cal map so laggy i couldn't even play it.

      Thanks!
      This has a little bit of everything as it was my first map. I am glad you enjoyed the diversity this map has to offer.
      So-Cal isn't optimized, AT ALL. It's terrible in it's current state - Nevada has been optimized, so it'll run a lot better (and it's also a smaller map slightly).
      I am actually going to kill off that So-Cal map in favor of a much better version that's coming out in a few months as a pre-release Beta.

      Glad you checked them out!

    This map is absolutely amazing. My computer absolutely sucks and when I looked at the size of the download, I knew it was going to be a mess. I was completely wrong. This map runs very well and It only lags a little bit. Thank you so much for this map :)

      Awesome, glad you like it. This was my first mapping project, but it had quite a bit of tidying up last year so it should be awesome. It doesn't take nearly as much PC power to run this as does my Roane County map, so you should be in the clear, even if you only have a 750 ti or a Radeon HD 7850 2gb (max settings or close, on the 2nd one).
      If you get a little lag with the video, turn off dynamic reflections, or if your processor is the slow part of the PC, turn off shadows or set them to 'player only'. This should help you. Check out So-Cal Interstate (it's a little more laggy) as it's more of the same less the buildings. It's just roads and terrain.
      Nevada Interstate was built with permission from Ouerbacker's Black Hills 2015 map - a great but rather empty and under-utilized map.
      --Cheers and yes, you're very welcome.

    This map is the fastest and largest map I have. It is by far my favorite, and every time I have a chase something new happens! Never gets old.

      Glad you enjoy it, the AI should work well, it was tested rather extensively. Check out So-Cal interstate also if you like this one, as it's the sequel to this map. It doesn't have the buildings (yet) but it's got a ton of roads and highways to explore (much more than this one does).

      Thanks!

    Fun map, I've had some great car chases on this map.

      Author's Response
      Glad you enjoyed this map. It was made for chasing, crashing, and mindlessly milling about :)
      Surprised anyone found it actually. This dusty old thing can be quite a bit of fun. I will have one way roads on it eventually... don't hold breath though as I don't know when it's going to be.
      If you use the AI debug panel you can see what the roads are if you enable the AI UI panel and turn on NAVGRAPH or whatever it's called, it shows the nodes name and road name if it has one. Then select that for target - if they're not all confusingly named decal-road.
      This was originally @Ouerbacker 's map, Black Hills, remade with permission.
      Thanks for writing in!

    Really great job out there! I always struggled to mantain the fps on this map, But always loved it, Hope with the update everything runs better so I can really dig on your map! Nice work and thanks for the asphalt textures, might use them for my maps! Keep it up!

      Glad you enjoyed it, this map is made for an enjoyable time both driving alone just cruising or racing down the varied amount of turns interspersed with winding mountainous sections of highway and side-routes, and also for chasing the AI around until you or it gets dizzy. To that end, glad you enjoyed it, and hope you continue to have much fun in the future. You'll also like So-Cal Interstate if you like this, but that map gets slow in spots. Update for So-Cal coming soon to fix it's FPS. Roane County is also another map of mine, I am sure you can find it if you already haven't been playing. Do enjoy the maps and look for my soon-to-debut (this month sometime) Tail of the Dragon map - a real roadway straight out of the Tennessee mountains! --Cheers!

      Author's Response
      I know right? Thanks for the kind words. There's quite a few semi-hidden jumps integrated into the landscape, and a few more-than-obvious giant lumps of earth laying about. There is a large concrete airport that's semi-hidden off the beaten-path though, if you're into flying, don't miss out on it's 1.1 mile long runway (with a big jump past the end of it).
      You'll have quite a bit of fun with chasing the AI on this map, as it should work 100%, so if you have a capable processor, do indulge yourself a bit.
      --Cheers!

    I really love this map! Especially driving at night thru expressway with the sunburst flat4 sound mod, almost an impreza :) and see how reflecting the lights on the body. Downhilling from mountain on the winding roads just another thing. Fun to drive.
    1. bob.blunderton
      Author's Response
      Well glad my efforts to revamp the highway largely for 7.0 didn't go unnoticed, I did a lot of smoothing & re-banking for that version - what in the end was basically rebuilding most of the entire highway. The curves in the highway, winding in and out of the mountains and hills making up much of the map, are meant to challenge even more experienced drivers. It's easy to lose control and under-estimate some of the corners, as they're designed this way. Also, each direction on the highway is a slightly different experience as in some spots the two sides take separate routes.
      This release was for the most part a bug-fix, so that the walls didn't go orange for Nvidia users (and from the feedback I am getting, no bug reports, etc, I will assume all is well as it is here on my end). Glad you enjoyed this map as much as you did. The environment was originally Ouerbacker's Black Hills 2015, with permission, I added the highway and created all the textures the highway uses, the bridges (there were no bridges in this map, and half of one tunnel, and no highway when I started) etc. This was my first map, and what once was a rough effort to make a highway, was able to be fully realized into the winding, twisting, almost rocky-mountain style of race track I originally envisioned it to be. This was one of the most fun ones to make, though. The many four lane routes and all the mountainous winding roads are my doing too, so when you get sick of the highway, take an off ramp and have a tour if you haven't already! --Thanks for writing in.

      Thanks, was pretty well checked & tested, unless an editor bug 'hammed' something up or I did something quite careless (no one's immune), all should be well. Do enjoy the map, it has full AI support, FPS is considerably better, and there shouldn't be any more glitches (there's a miniscule error on the paved runway but it's barely noticeable). Try to do the highway loop without wrecking (each side is a bit different in spots), some of those turns will sneak up on you. They don't look like much, but there's some mean ones out there. Thanks for letting me know all is well!

    Dude, this Map is awesome. Its one of my most Favorites. Its look beautiful and is damn huge. The roads feel realistic and brilliant. Thx for your work.

      Glad you enjoyed this map, this was my first, and built with permission off of Ouerbacker's BLACK HILLS map. It had one long snaking two-lane paved road, a few trails, and one short paved road to the tunnel. I added the highway, finished the tunnel, added 3 highway tunnel pairs, the exit ramps, completed roads that went to no-where, added the dam, the jumps, the small river outflow from the dam, added a bunch of misc roads and 4 lane avenues, a hidden underground structure (start point), lots of lights, all-new road textures, a new large paved airport, paved the hotel lot, and added a can-opener culvert bridge where the river goes under a 4-lane road next to the retention pond, and a trail crosses here. Enjoy the 11-foot-8 can-opener :)

    Very nice map, it's very natural and realistic looking! Driving around in the map reminds me of the old classic 90's PC game Interstate 76. Nice references to 1/2 Life also!

      Author's Response
      Great nostalgia reference there, I loved 90s racing games on the PC! I have always wanted to make a race track, even since those days. So here it is, in all it's glory, disguised as a highway but a purpose-built race track at heart. I am glad you seem to enjoy playing it as much as I did making it & wish you much good times. Thanks for writing in!

      Glad to hear it! That's what I tried for, and watched many videos online to try and get the feel for what I wanted to create. Sure, it's not perfect but there's only one of me and not a whole team, so I am quite pleased you enjoy it. I shall hope it provides many joyful hours to you and others, until it is replaced in the future with a hopefully superior version(not that it needs it). Do tell friends, and thank-you for taking the time to write in!
