    This doesn't represent my complete idea for this track, but I plan on taking more time for the next chunk of work and I'm open to ideas, so I figured I'd release a beta version for you guys to test drive. I'll probably make this a circuit, so you can do laps. As it stands right now though, the end of the road just launches you into an area of palm trees and coastal rocks.


    Features:
    Custom lap timer
    Custom mesh road
    Solid framerate

    How to Use:
    Drag and drop both directories from the archive into your main BeamNG Drive folder.

    Known Issues:
    At one certain place on the road, the mesh was disappearing for a second, but I think I fixed that..

    Planned Improvements:
    I'll probably make it a circuit, so you can do laps.
    Start, finish, and checkpoint gates
    More terrain work

    Will you be adding any roads or houses to the map?
    Will you be adding natural features like; land bridges, land arches, rivers, etc.

    Other than that it looks good.

    I could also model you some multi million dollar houses, being that you usually find those on a coast.

    Even with the cheap grass I use ? It's not actually a model but a texture.

    Well, beside the main road you see, I didn't plan on adding any more roads. Houses would be cool.

    I honestly don't know everything I'll be doing with the terrain, but I know it'll be a lot. Is it possible to make a land arch in the Torque editor ? Is this ( https://www.google.com/search?q=lan...icle%2F20131013%2FLIFE%2F310130007%2F;640;360 ) a land arch ?

    I only plan on putting guard rails around some corners. I won't put 'em around the entire edge.

    Am I correct to assume I can't make ground cover have collision detection?

    Will you have have a tunnel connecting the two separate ends of the road? I'm thinking about the race-update coming down the pipeline. This would be fun to cruise around on. :)

    I like how you're modelling the road separately to the terrain. Ensures a nice smooth surface. I look forward to this. Keep them coming!

    I uploaded a beta version for you guys to test drive. It has my standard timer in it. Let me know if you guys get a framerate dip going around the turn with the guard rail. It may just be me since I have 90 things open at once.

    awesome cant wait to try it out, will edit my post after some test runs.

    CoastalDseries.png - Slowed down at the end thinking "WTF is this thing sticking out" didnt realize it was the finish and a jump off the cliff

    Great map, love the flow of it so far. I was getting this no texture everywhere though. At a distance it looked fine like in the picture, the grass texture (?) was showing but when close it was 'over powered' by the no texture thing.

    Also, no FPS drops

    missing textures on the mountain / grass for me, but the road + guardrails work fine.

    very fast map :)
