    All done! Let me know if there's any issues. Also, a few things have changed since the video, such as the rock colour.

    This is Canyon, a map I've been working on for about 1 and a bit days. I wanted to make a map where you don't have to be constricted to roads and off-road tracks to get around, but you can have an explore through all the rock formations and probably get lost along the way. It has some rocky sections, a fair bit of foliage and is very fun to explore all the different paths and hills to be climbed. I decided to set the lighting to be as if it was the morning and the sun was still rising as it creates some really nice lighting and shadows.

    What about some mountains at the edge? Like in Motocross Madness 2
    And if not enought, an invisible wall so you can't pass over it.

    This is pretty sweet :D Maybe add some orange rock meshes along the more vertical cliff parts?

    Mountains around the edge wouldn't really fit I don't think since it sort of tapers off and goes flat around the edges. Plus, they always scared me in Motocross Madness for whatever reason, and I have a feeling they'd do the same here :p. I might just do the invisible wall thing, but I'd rather not.

    Are there some of those meshes already in the game? I'm no good with meshes myself.

    lol, I hate maps that are surrounded by mountains. It makes me feel trapped!

    Re: Canyon

    Oh wow, I never thought about that. I'll have to think of an easter egg :p

    Yeah, I've had to go with that idea anyway, otherwise it looked funny. It blends in though and you can't really tell. The road will probably just go off an opening in the map though, or into a forest or something. Not too sure.

    Whoa, this map looks wonderful, I really love how the red canyons look as we don't have any in Finland.

    As for the easteregg, just a "Black mesa research facility - keep away" weathered sign would work well :p

    A few days? Pffft, I'm almost done (minus the easter egg, but that can come later)

    Hmm, might make the road loop around a bit in that case. For people who want to have a race around on the road anyway.

    This big:

    Eh, may as well stick some more screenshots up. I've toned down the greenery since.

    This should be awesome if it's anything like your other map. Looking good so far from the pics you've posted. :D

    It's part of BeamNG. Just the default road texture that's used in the official maps. Also, thanks everyone for your comments. I should have a video and the download up soonish.

    Looks great, excited to finally see a good desert terrain map! Ever thought of making tunnels through some of the mountains? Would be interesting if possible, just an idea!
