    You do know what this is map is based off of, right?
    Whenever he decides to update, asking for an "eta pls" won't make it come any faster.

    Right now, I have no plans to update the Matrix Freeway. At best, I have tentative plans to add at most four more kilometers of freeway, and perhaps some more background objects and/or unique sections of road as seen in the film itself. But there is no ETA, and it may be well into 2018 by the time I take an interest in resuming the map's construction. I do have other projects.

    I am using the same sections repeatedly, yes. But that only makes the development a little more crawling. Torque 3D's snapping tools only work in absolute world coordinates, so any section that's not perfectly aligned to the x or y axis or is not at a whole numbered coordinate on the x or y position has to be placed using a template in Blender, and the coordinates have to be moved over one by one. For every single object, including the light posts. And while straight road would make that easier, at ~6-10 km from the center point, floating point errors begin to cause some trouble. At the end of a 25km section, you might see a little z-fighting and the camera will shake noticeably.

    Also, I think you're vastly overestimating how much control I have over what the AI does. The AI drives into oncoming lanes. The only way that I can prevent that from happening is to not have AI, or not have oncoming lanes. If and when the devs add map-maker control over lane direction and splitting, I'll gladly update the map accordingly.

    I really love this map, but would it be possible for you to make it a loop? I really like it but getting to the end and having to turn around in the middle of a h i g h s p e e d race is a little annoying. It's definitely still a great mod though.

    Yeah, it's not a bad plan. I was tentatively planning on making it a loop a long time ago, but I'm entertaining the possibility that new sections or areas of the level could be added, and I would want to complete those sections before making the freeway loop, so I can tell what to plan around. Then again, I'm not really working on this project anymore, so I guess I could look into it(?).

    You can already do that...
    Open the side menu, click on the little "cloud" button and change it how you want.

    Great mod for high-speed crashes and for driving like an ACTUAL CIVILIZED PERSON ( which no one does and it is very boring). Even can be used as a runway for my X18 and my Cessplane l19

    Yes you can change the time of day and even ad a day and night cycle.

    Why did I post the same thing TWICE!? How stupid. I'm such a newbie.

    Welcome to the forums @M_Racing ! I know you are new, but before anyone gets upset, you should look at the date of the post before you. Its been a while, so what you did is called a 'bump'. Most people don't like bumping. Just a friendly reminder before anyone gets mad. :D
