i was wondering something. i ran the original map a few days before the release with another guy on here, he said he seen a tear in the road and i turned around to see where it was at. we was right next to each other and he said the tear was right by his wheel and said i was right on it. i couldn't see it at all. so...would it be possible for it to be a glitch its having where is is happening on one system and not on the other? maybe where the map had an issue when it was loading up? i know other mods have issues from time to time. didn't know if this might be one of them? it would be interesting if you had someone follow you im MP and see if they seen the same problems you do. just a thought.
@ganjamajic420-0 that is the thing though, will it ever be released?
@Draconus i know a part of the work you do is for a bit of therapy, but i have to ask again. why do all this work and show it off, if you are only going to keep this stuff for yourself? now if you have been releasing things and i have missed it then my mistake. it is just i have seen a lot of great work come from you in the last couple years, but after a while it is becoming quite the tease because you show this stuff off, but then never seem to release things. i mean if you d not plan on releasing this work then no problem really, but please do not tease all of us with this stuff if you do not intend to do anything with it.
i would like to say first off i appreciate all the work everyone who has created mods for this game has done. i have tried to look into building a truck or a map a couple times myself and thats just not my thing. if i cant cut it, bend it, or weld it i aint modding anything lol! i have donated to the links of the guys that i appreciate the work of and use on a regular basis, and will continue to do so. with that being said, i read the story some time ago of your circumstances. i felt like it was something i wanted to do and i helped you through your link. let me make this clear, i did not donate to you hoping i would get something in return...all tho i was told something was coming my way. i dont want anything and dont expect anything. but i followed your work and admired it. but like 8up said, i haven't seen any of this work released to the public. which this is where im going to respectfully disagree with 8up, its no different than some of the best modders on here say they are not going to publicly release anymore mods, yet we get teased with their work on youtube. you may have a friends list that you share all your work with and thats awesome. but, why i stopped following you and honestly will not follow your work anymore is because everytime i looked at something you had posted its always the same thing, its like you are the only one who can work on a certain thing and if anyone else starts working on something also it turns into a pissing match and you get your feelings hurt. i have personally sent you messages wishing you and your family the best and to keep your head up. but all i ever seen in return is how your done with the spintires community and buy the way, listen to my story of bad luck in life again. i wish nothing but the best of luck for you and your family. i am surprised i even looked at this post when it came up today but i really needed to get this off my chest.
speaking from my personal experience in off-roading, i have done a bunch of wheeling on areas that at one point in time was logged. now with that being said i enjoy a good logging map, but i only, IRL care to go to the woods for recreation. without having the areas that has been logged in the past, i wouldn't have the trails to wheel on. so if i was capable enough to build a map, especially since this is a logging game, i think i would build one that had logging in mind. id start with a system of logging roads that trucks had to use. IRL any logging company will keep these roads maintained. next there will be roads that reaches the most remote areas of the property that is not accessible by log trucks. these roads will be used for log skidders and occasionally a for a lack of better words a heavily modified log truck, almost always this truck will not be pulling a trailer. after these areas have been logged these access roads will be forgotten about. this is where your local wheelers will come to test the limits of there 4x4's. these areas will have steep hills, exposed rock out croppings, rivers, make shift bridges, deep ruts, water breaks cut into the roads and so on. IMO very few places have ever been designed as off-roading areas that at one point in time has not been logged. so you could have a network of old unused logging roads that would make for some great wheeling trials and the main roads around the perimeter that is still being used to haul logs. this is just my 2 cents on how to make a multi purpose map. you will never please everyone with a map. but what we all need to realize is, we dont go to a hardcore off-road park with a stock 4x4 and expect to be able to run all the trails. we also dont go to a hardcore off-road park with logging equipment and expect to log. we dont go on over-landing trips with hardcore off-road rigs and we don't go on over-landing trips with logging equipment either. and finally lol we sure dont go to a logging site and expect to do any kind of over-landing or hardcore off-roading. all tho it can be done its not ideal. we have to remember to pick the right vehicle for the map we are interested in. im convinced you have the skills to make a top notch map for any occasion you want.... and ill be waiting for it!
when i start the game through steam, or through the desktop shortcut it runs version 18/29/01b and does not have the mod options in the settings menu. i can start the game through the STMR Mod desktop shortcut and it runs version 18/01/29, and i do have the mod options in the settings menu. it just looks like the numbers are switched around but there is obviously a "b" in the version now. heck i have no idea. at least i can still get it to work through the STMR Mod.
I would like to hear the community's feedback on what kind of map I should make next.
I was thinking of a small dedicated comp crawler course. Super small, super detailed with custom model obstacles. Any ideas on what you want to see?!
i vote comp crawler course! lol
