    Grooved Test Range, Nevada - A military airbase perfect for your test flights

    View attachment 137352

    Grooved Test Range is a restricted military installation located somewhere in the Nevada desert. Many of the new military aircraft are tested here. It's the perfect place to fly aircraft, with a huge runway, and plenty of space to do manoeuvres.

    But if flying is not your thing (for whatever weird reason), Grooved Test Range and it's surroundings feature many kilometres of...

    Shhh. That's a restricted top secret area. You should not be revealing classified information :p.

    Btw, congratulations on being the first person finding that (as far as I know) :D. At least, the first one posting something about it in the forums.

    Great map, are you going to fix the gap between the high poly terrain and low poly. And one thing that makes me sad is that the awesome hillside is gone(not detailed) anymore when you flew straight .

    I would really like to! I need to work on that.

    I'm not really sure what you mean. Are you referring to the fact that there is a "low poly terrain" as you called it when going far away from the airport? There are limitations with the size and resolution of heightmaps. So making the whole area as detailed as the main "high poly" terrain was not an option, and I had to reduce the size of that terrain in order to increase the details resolution for the airport area.
    And I want to focus the detail of the map on the airport itself and its near surroundings and not that much on those further areas.

    Hm. I'm not experiencing this, it must be a problem on your end. Are you sure you are using the most recent version of the mod? Can you provide more info about the problem? Maybe share some screenshots or a video.

    Why the hell is this map pushing my 12gb of 21,000Mhz ram to 61%!?
    My CPU is only at 20/25% and my GPU isn't really struggling.

    I am getting a problem where the game crashes when i load up the map, but it seems like i can run other maps normally. Is there something different about this one that makes it do that?

    The runway is very good for AI when it comes to certain crash tests. For big vehicles they were slightly off centre due to the road surface somehow being uneven but the AI was able to keep a straight path. From one of the big movies of the 2000's "The Matrix Reloaded" I recreated the two truck crash on your map at speeds around 70 mph (112 km/h). This is what it looks like and it turned out okay with the game not resetting or crashing.
