Hope you dont mind Roughrider...off on a slight tangent....
I was thinking a couple of days ago that maybe map makers could start making 512x512 reference maps. Then upload for others to combine into new maps.
Say if four map makers made one 512x512 reference map each, then upload to a specially created semi public google drive.
A "fellow" map maker could quite quickly combine the 4 references together to make a map with each corner of the map having vastly different characteristics/styles.
And because the amazing editor (imho) allows it.... blending the edges of the references is quite easy.
Also references can be rotated individually at any angle which again would dramatically change the maps gameplay.
The roads would NOT necessarily line up with the next reference map, but thats pretty much what makes this game fun.
(Adding references in the editor also then has the options of:- not changing the heightmap and/or the materials.)
The more map makers that contributed would allow a huge combination of varied maps that could be made quite quickly.
Also for the map maker....making a 512x512 maps is quicker, testing is less repetitive. Adding other peoples references to your own map makes testing more fun because you could add someone else's ref map whilst testing your own section of the map.
If you added someone else's reference map into your map that you thought was a bit rubbish, just remove and download the next one. No biggie.
