    Hey guys, I've finally uploaded to the repository!!! Should be up on Monday! I'll release the map here on the forums if I get enough requests before then.



    EVERYTHING BELOW THIS LINE IS OLD!!!
    ***************************************************************************************

    Hey brosephs!

    I'll let my video and the pictures do most of the talking for this map.

    *MOST RECENT PHOTOS 05/31/17*

    screenshot_00016.png screenshot_00017.png



    PHOTOS OF WHEN I STARTED:
    BeamNGdrive05112017-21093401.png BeamNGdrive05112017-21094902.png BeamNGdrive05112017-21100703.png BeamNGdrive05112017-21101704.png BeamNGdrive05112017-21103505.png BeamNGdrive05112017-21105206.png



    It's main focus will be fast and skill-based downhill sections and muddy hill climbs. I know I don't have much done as of yet, but I plan on making this map just as good (if not better) than my brother's map, A.T.E Playgrounds. I'm hoping to have an alpha out for testing in a week and any feedback/suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    5/13/17 Update: Ran into issues with detail so I had to lower "squares per" and also the height. A bit smaller but much better terrain and way better terrain resolution in ruts/bumps/peaks. It did throw all forestry, decals, roads, and objects out of whack though so it will need redone. Trust me, it's worth it.

    - Began adding rally route that will span entire map
    - Also adding a "highway"
    - Adding pipes through certain routes down the mountain
    - Laughing out loud at how bad my driving is

    05/21/17 Update:
    I'll leave this here for anyone interested in the progress! :)

    Update for 5/17/19 - Currently working on starting area forestry and concrete roadways. Most are at least started. All paths down the mountain have been mapped but will need slight terrain touch ups. Also need to add signs for each section and warning signs for sharp corners/drops.

    Tunnel 1 completed!

    First roadway all the way to the top completed!

    May not sound like much but visually it's coming along VERY nicely. Will post more soon!

    Anyone getting flashbacks to Failrace's Downhill Chaos series on BeamNG?

    Hahaha! Just watched a little of his bus one. I was actually thinking of doing something similar once I finish this up. Thanks for the golden YT recommendation. lol

    Is this based on the actual resort? I've been in that area in real life. Needs more trees.

    I'm taking quite a lot of liberties with it so it probably won't be anywhere true to life. More a modified version for cars. lol. I am adding a ton more forestry though, it's just one of those things I've been waiting to do until I'm done with shaping/smoothing terrain.

    05/26/27 Update:

    PICTURES INCOMING LATER TONIGHT!

    A lot of my recent work has been cleaning up the back of the map. I've been spending most of my time there but recently "finished" and moved down the mountain to start making descents. After I post a few photos, you can PM me and receive the current version. It does come with a caveat, however. I would like some feedback on what needs changed and/or added. I really want this to be a map fostered by the community. I do withhold all final decisions to myself but I want it to be a map that everyone will enjoy!

    Here we go! Please remember it is WIP so it might not be fully representative of the final product. These are shots of areas that I've worked on already or am working on currently:

    I've only done the very back side and haven't made any full descents down the mountain. Once I finish those I may release an alpha. If you'd like to provide feedback I can PM you a link to the current version. I just ask that you give me a critique in return so I know what to work on more.

    I'm going to release an experimental Alpha tomorrow to get feedback for the rest of the map. I have about... 25%ish completed and want to see if I'm headed in the right direction. Stay posted!

    For anyone keeping up with my posts or those interested in testing and providing feedback, here is a VERY early alpha version of the map. There is still a LOT to finish, so please don't think of this as representative of the finished product. Let me know if you have any suggestions/issues!

    (seems to not be recognizing as terrain. one moment)

    FAIL! I'm working on getting it usable in a zip but for now just unpack in the mods menu or extract the Downhill_Domination folder to the levels folder inside My Documents/BeamNG
