    Welcome to Desert Highway! This is a project inspired by my desire to drive for many miles on a quick, and long map.

    Originally started by the user @Miura and it was a depiction of a totally barren salt flat. This map is a rolling work in progress.



    Features:

    • Over 60 miles of hand-placed roads!
    • Handcrafted terrain.
    • Road signs
    • Various unique mesh props such as hangars and bridges
    • Offroad sections
    • Hillclimb areas
    • Ambient sounds and lights
    • And other goodies! Enjoy exploring!


    Updates:


    Version 13.0 Alpha

    Welcome to the 'I'm-Sorry-I-Made-You-Put-Up-With-Mesh-Roads' Update!

    Seriously though, nine months it's been?? Oh my God, that's an embarrassing time frame for this map to not get updated. Let's get to it:

    Changelog:



      • Mesh roads are gone! The only ones that remain are for bridges and the tunnel. They've been replaced with decal roads on hand molded terrain. Bumps will occur. This isn't a track.
      • Remade the hillclimbs with proper terrain - these are quite fun places to drive!
      • Brightened the map by 25% - found it funny that I needed to turn my lights on in the middle of the day to see the gauges.
      • Brightened tunnel lights
      • Remade the 'forest' because I accidentally deleted it after I got tired of seeing floating shrubs everywhere.
      • Added proper reflections to water on the map.
      • Added a waterfall for reasons.
      • Removed scenarios as they've been made obsolete.
    TO DO for BETA:



      • Film and edit new promo video (probably will be done the soonest)
      • Remake scenarios
      • Fix problems you all bring up
    WHAT'S AFTER THAT?
      • New areas! Don't expect them soon (definitely sooner than 9 months though!)
    I hope you all enjoy this update as much as I do! People wanted more realistic (and not tire-exploding) roads so here you go!



    Desert Highway is possible with the help of all these fabulous individuals:

    @Automobile Game , @DoullPepper
    , @epiclymade10 , @Nissan Skyline , @Vinh , @gigawert , @PainyTOXA , @Miura , @RobertGracie , @EroticCornetto, @blueshift, @bob.blunderton and My coffee maker :)

    Thanks guys! You rock!

    Enjoy and please leave your comments!

    Known Bugs:

    • Slight frame lag around heavily brushed areas and water areas. Doesn't seem to be as bad as previous versions.

    Looks interesting.
    And with so much space it's got a lot of potential.
    I'll try it out sometime, though I do think you need to add some cactuses... Cacti... Whatever the plural of cactus is...

    I love the original map and with a road, it just seems complete. I can't wait to tear this thing up in my FT40 :3

    And the FPS would go away with it :D But if there would be 2 kind of it, one with foliage and one without it I would be totally fine with it ;)

    This looks very promising. :D It's a good example of how big maps in BeamNG can be made.

    Add some power poles along one side of the road like on the map 'La Paz' from Rigs Of Rods & it will be even better.

    I realy love this desert you know,it got so much potential and it reminds me of Interstate 76 game back in the days,I played the crap out of it!
    I would love too see some dirtroads in it and some canyons with a oldskool bridge over it,or just to make the impossible canyonjump and wreck ur wheels :D
    some telepoles and some desert veggies would be nice too.

    Keep up the good work and finish it of,I Love it !

    holy crap! I thought everyone had forgotton about i76. loved that game, loved the series, still have them all but the original i76+nitro was the best! I agree this map does kinda have that same "feel" to it. play it at night and you can almost hear it. "I copy you stampede. - - nable to provide assistance at this tim - - . will attempt to reach rondevu in - - - - - - - - - - ood luck friend."

    you could turn a map size like this into a great city, or mabey even a state if possible. i mean its as big as LA :D:D:D, just keep the idea in mind also for the other map developers.
