Hey guys. Its been a while since i released a new map but fear not i have had one in the works for a couple months now. This is a follow up to my original Badlands map. The new map features 8 of my own custom rocks plus some of the new models from the latest DLC. This map contains some intense rock sections, swampy mud sections, a race track, trails and more. I'm still not sure when the final release will be ready but i've finally got it to the point to where it warrants at least a couple screenshots. I will keep this thread posted as the map progresses closer to release. Thanks!
Better news. Testing went well today.. Badlands 2 is NOW PUBLIC. Enjoy. I'd love to hear your feedback so I can make better maps in the future. Enjoy!
Map Name: The Badlands Alpha
Type: Primary Focus - 4x4 Adventure with challenging logging unlocks for those brave enough to take them on.

Happy Easter everyone. I've been working on this for over 2 months and I think its finally ready for some testing. This map has a little bit of everything including my own custom rocks that I modeled and textured from photos of a real rock i picked up in the Pacific NW Mountains. I am giving it away to this community as an appreciation for all the hard work the modding community puts into this game. Its my way to give a little back to all of you crazy Mudrunners!
This map also includes a rally track which is wide track with jumps and turns. You'll probably want to pick up my "altered" Mixer Modded Truck pack to fully enjoy the track experience. NOTE: I did not make the original trucks. I've only reskinned them and tuned them to suit my own personal needs. Much respect to SPUN and AgaYuditra for the amazing work they put into the original mods.

As always, feedback is encouraged. I want to get a good round of feedback from you all so I can put a final round of polish on it before I call it done. Thanks and have fun on the map!

@rufus - I'm dead without the modded editor. Making maps is my favorite part of this game. I think i'm just going to go back and revisit some of my old vanilla maps and spice them up. I'm thinking of doing a "Original Badlands Revisited" map where I add in new features and rocks and spice it up a bit. Kinda like a Badlands v1.5. That may hold me over until I can start working on my larger maps again.
Thanks. Feel free to grab the mesh, texture, and class files out of the zip file and use in your own maps. Enjoy!
Also, someone was concerned about datafilehost as a mod server (even tho i've never had any issues with that as a file host), so I went ahead and hosted the file up on ShareMods as well. This smaller zip does not include any of my other maps. its JUST the badlands and the object required for that map. So if you are looking for an alternate host, you can grab it here.
Hey Fatboy. I'm glad to see you are making good use of my rock models. That was a nasty glitch to figure out for sure. I ended up patching those back in April but I never got around to reposting the patch for you guys so I apologize. It was weird that it was only showing up under MP which made debugging difficult. That glitch should be fixed in all my maps now BTW.
Its been updated and released now.
So i changed my map deployment to be more like "the valley dlc" once they did that pack when the modloader was not working properly. I found it was easier to manage getting my maps to my friends that way. all of those maps are ones I created. The gauntlet was my first, then I did the summer edition. I followed that up with the gauntlet part 2 (which in hindsight I feel I rushed a bit). The badlands is my third official map. The others are just test maps. Think of them as bonus material.
I would highly recommend you download the mixer trucks, they are OP as crap but made for the track section. Get used to them in the normal gears, then once you get used to them, put them in +1 and hold on to your pants. Totally unrealistic, but totally fun as well.
I also re-downloaded the zip and it worked great for me so if people are having issues, its on their end.
Oh and no worries about thread hijacking. Totally get it. So on that topic, all my stuff works just like it used to when I launch the game using the SpintiresMod mod loader. The version i have is v1.6.10. I'm guessing they have a custom compile of the 18/01/29b exe built in which is why it works. I say this because when the game loads through the modloader, it says 18/01/29b. So... i'm guessing now we wait for an updated SpintiresMod exe so we can get caught up to the current game ver. Until then I'm just going to keep using the old mod loader because it works.
SPOILER ALERT - Here are a couple screenshots of my map editor to help guide you guys to some of the more interesting parts of the map. A lot of the lower section of the map (in the second shot) are for logging. I have a TON of side paths so keep your eyes peeled for interesting offshoots.
