    Thanks! Yes, eventually it will be finished. Not quite yet though I must say, but it will eventually be finished up. I just wanted to get the main route in and done with. That's all it was really intended to be, technically. When the game has more of it's feature-set in-place I will go ahead and finish up this map more.

    Wall of videos, posted in the order recorded -




    I work my way up from slowest to fastest, so it gets more intense in the last three videos.


    Darren9's Hyper Bolide got me back into this map again ^_^

    Hopefully I will find a car with pumped up kicks that can outrun my gun, so that I can record the whole road :V

    UPDATE:

    Thank you again for the wonderful work you have put into this map, and the countless hours of enjoyment (and frustration) it has brought me as I have tried my damnedest to conquer it. Finally made it on the Custom Sport Bike:
    Fast version (4x Speed) -

    Real time (May still be processing for a while, it is a long one!) -

    Awesome, I will find time in the next few days to preview them and put some up on the video wall for the resource page.
    Thanks a bunch for the video footage. Working on a Roane County optimization release (not much content, but runs better when in town) as of late. Got sick of the FPS dropping just when i was getting areas fleshed out real nice like.

    So, also, entirely know that song by Foster the People - Pumped up Kicks. It's got a good beat to it but some dark lyrics, it sure scares the sheep though. They get scared of songs like that, well, I say "If you don't learn from history, you're bound to repeat it". Or you can just shelter everyone from the realities of the world so they're 100% completely non-prepared to handle anything it might throw at them. Sheesh!

    Roane County will be getting a bus route, but likely not this track, honestly. It'd be torturous trying to drive a bus (especially the 'Hero' bus stuffed full of 19 pianos like I did tonight) up this roadway. Might make some awesome ruckus though, especially when you clip a few trees.

    So yes, entirely, thank-you, I will have them up sometime this week / weekend where folks may see them!

    --Cheers!

    Yes, I am aware of this unfortunate issue with this map. I love running this map myself with lots of AI, as it's made for it. Makes a great road race. Unfortunately something is crashing this map out. I will figure it out in time but I can give no immediate resolution or promise at the moment. I have put in a trouble ticket with the developers.
    Nevada Interstate is also down for the count for most people (though I've had someone say they could run it).

    I would love to run through this map one day, I have been on the Tail of the Dragon a few years ago during Christmas time and I plan on driving the whole thing now that I have my license. It may seem risky but this could give me some practice.:rolleyes:

    This isn't 100% perfectly accurate, but it will definitely give you a good idea of what you're up against. Don't speed too much, and certainly, if you take away one thing, just 'stay in your lane' as you can never tell what or WHO is around the corner in the oncoming lane - or possibly in yours. Just enter turns slow and you'll be fine. The police do watch the road regularly especially on weekends or near month's end. There is also the fact the nearest hospital is an hour away. So don't DIE.
    It's a beautiful drive though, IRL, totally recommended. Failing that, there's always this map (and 0.14.x~0.10.x game versions, that is).

    One thing to try is not running any other mods but this map. Not sure if that will work though.
    Oddly enough, I have a version of this map with JUST the terrain & spawn points, no graphics, not even road or grass textures, and it does load; but add in anything else and POOF it goes bust. I have to spend more time on it.

    Yes I wanted to make everyone aware that there was trouble with it. I always check my maps within about 3 days of a version update, just so folks know or I am not blindsided by 'forget what you WERE doing, none of your maps work!' issues. This map and Nevada Interstate (and So-cal before I completely overhauled it), had some very old resources in it. Roane County's resources were mostly updated over the last two years to newer standard, but this one not so much. I will see what I can do, I've already tried hacking shaders, that's a no-go. It's a shader crash that takes it down. The game engine bugs on something, but I can't seem to find the material(s) that are causing the root of the issue. When I do, it will be working in short order, but it could be a little bit before I manage to sniff out what exactly is causing it (as there can be 1000 files in a map zip file, or more!), or it could take until the game updates again.

    Argh, I love updates, but hate updates when they take down a map like this. I got a new computer and am itching to try out the dragon again with gobs of AI running around everywhere. But, I will wait patiently and wish you luck in your quest to track down the problem. It’ll be worth the wait!

    @bob.blunderton Try this;

    Delete the MOTEL folder located in art/buildings, then CLEAR YOUR CACHE. Then try loading the level again and see if it works. It's working for me over here on 0.15.0.3 after doing this.

    I've tried that and it didn't work. Maybe the 2nd time's a charm. If it does, it will make a lot of people happy.

    Nevada shares that hotel. I had Nevada installed on here already, and in directory form.
    This fixes Nevada (I will post this to correct forum) so it should fix Tail of The Dragon too as they both have this same building with different gfx.
