    Yeah, the new version seems to use some newer form of AI waypoints. Or something.

    I'll look into it.

    Edit: The old property that designated the segments was named "difficulty." Now, it's called "driveability." Just rename the eight instances in the map.json file, and you should be good. I'll upload an update soon to rectify this.

    Edit(2): Sorry, that's spelled "drivability," not "driveability." My bad.

    Nah, you're fine. Just bear in mind the next update will have the info.json file filled in.

    Does anyone else have this problem where it's really grainy? Especially the walls, they look like someone put the game through a watercolor or mosaic filter.

    It just seems to be your bad graphics settings that is causing the problem.

    Any idea what the setting could be? It didn't look this bad before the update/installing my graphics card.

    You try running the 32bit version from the 32bit bin file under the main Beamng folder?

    Lighting setting on "low" makes it grainy like that, I don't mind it but if you want to fix it turn it up to medium or high.

    Low lighting settings will make it look that way. The only other suggestion I can think up is to go into the editor, and change the orientation of the light to be a bit lower and/or more direct. That might keep it from trying to apply shadows on the semi-directly lit wall.

    It seems default SSAO settings are creating the issue for me. I adjusted accordingly and the muddiness cleared up. I've also noticed a glaring
    increase in AA jaggies out beyond the LOD render line.

    this is a fun track, but it needs a loop at the end to turn around and head back on the other lane. (or maybe an 'S' loop back to the other end, since you mentioned wanting to do a curved section)

    Believe me, I had quite a dose of reference material. I even happened upon that website in searching around a bit. Useful for finding references on the highway signs (yes, the road signs are accurate to the actual film set). As stated above, corners are waiting on pathfinding attack AI. Then again, with no current attack AI, I suppose there's not really any reason to delay.

    You've never seen the Matrix? Like, not even the first one? You're a Western male, right :p?

    But yeah, the film made use of "concrete" (wood) retaining walls and false pavement built atop the abandoned runways of NAS Alameda, across the bay from SF. The runways are a popular destination for the Mythbusters, who often crash/explode stuff in the massive expanse of empty, unpopulated space.

    Just updated the map again, with a shiny new info.json file, and an adjusted map.json (AI should now work by default). I've also started to designate version names by the date of the upload. Let me know if you have any problems.
