    Did you hopefully find what you needed? Just like many others, I can't wait to check out all that new stuff on your W.W.Open map!!! Might you have an ETA on this bad boy? Thanks again, keep up the good work bro.

    Yes.

    Sadly some of what I really want to add to the map is currently gonna have to wait. Namely the vehicles.
    Beam moved on up with their DDS files to newer versions and the old GIMP DDS plugin doesn't read them anymore (trying to make modifications to some of the Old_Paint skins).
    Krita had DDS support for one version but they removed it because it was horrifically buggy. From what I've read they plan on re-introducing it so I guess the derby skins and other ones that I wanted to add to the map's hidden vehicles will have to wait until Krita fixes their DDS importer.

    The map itself is more or less functional at least. Some areas are still pretty rough (there's a few tracks that still have their meshroad layouts floating in the sky) and some areas that I'm reworking.

    I'll release it sometime soon but I'm gonna have the hidden vehicles locked off for the time being I suppose.

    Paint.net and Photoshop work with DDS, at least it worked for making car skins

    Both are paid for
    and Photoshop is outrageously expensive. :/

    Ok so
    Worked a bit on the three drag strips. They now all actually work on dragstrips, rather than dirt lots.
    I'm going to look into how the LUA system of Gridmap's dragstrip works but no promises that I'll be able to copy that into mine.

    No no, Paint.NET is completely free :)
    If you wish you may support the devs by purchasing it in Microsoft Store but it is totally free if you grab it from their website - here.

    No, although perhaps some tip money would be appreciated so I can work to pay off my medical bills... and get my jaw fixed. :/

    Some work on a new area of the map. Observatory with ginormous reflector dish somewhat inspired by Arecibo. WIP obviously.

    This is the weirdest bug I have ever seen, are you sure it's the map doing this and not just your PC?

    Just my map... naturally.

    Tested on cliff, ECUSA, and Small Island.
    I have absolutely no idea what is causing this. GPU seems to be all in order, no weirdness on any of my other games.

    @meywue Pardon the ping mate, have you ever seen this before? Not sure if I should write a bug report.

    Sent bug report.

    Debug menu shows nothing beyond a few missing textures.

    READ BEFORE DOWNLOADING
    Public release #1
    August 28, 2021

    Mildly sarcastic list of hings to expect (to not work...)
    • Handful of broken textures (nothing major)
    • Traffic AI can do some moronic things at certain points in the map. I consider this a feature at this point lol
    • Bus and semi AI struggle at points around the map - yeah I know
    • Not a lot of ambient sounds - to be (re)added
    • Some roads are not marked on GPS/Minimaps - deliberate
    • Hot air balloons don't have collision - tell me how you managed to hit one with a car
    • Hidden vehicle popups randomly occur - working on this
    • Only some hidden vehicles have custom textures - to be added
    • Non-hidden custom vehicle configs don't have selectable menu icon - to be added later, just use config load menu right now
    • Some off-road trails are too hard - drive better
    • Game hard-crashes / cars or grass turns invisible (if this occurs tell me, I genuinely don't know what causes this, but fingers-crossed I think it stopped)
    • Any further weirdness or suspected bugs please tell me.

    Mega link is not working sadly, maybe it's an error with Mega itself, not sure. :(
