    I've made a blank map for easy creation of maps, it's completely blank, so you need to add everything yourself!



    READ THIS; IT'S VERY IMPORTANT
    To get started just place the folder unpacked, from inside the zip, into C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods\. Then, rename all the files from blankmap.mis, blankmap_preview.png, blankmap (folder), etc. to whatever your map will be called. Then edit the info.json file to match your map once you've finished your map, and don't forget to add a preview image! ;)



    PACKAGING FOR UPLOAD
    1. Get 7-Zip
    2. Navigate to: C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods\unpacked\YOURMOD.zip\ (remember: YOURMOD.zip is a folder)
    3. addtozip.png
    4. 7zipsettings.png
    5. Press OK.
    6. You can now upload your mod (zip).
    7. After it's uploaded you can delete the .zip you just created.

    I believe this is the wrong section for this thread. Wouldn't it be in terrains?

    It's supposed to. You have to add things like the terrain, and sky etc. The pink and completely black car are because there are no light sources.

    Do you really think people with no experience with map making are going to know how to add a sky and lighting? Maybe adding a flat terrain and a default sky will make it a little easier for them.

    That's why I linked some tutorials.

    EDIT: I think I'll make a tutorial myself (it's going to take some time)

    I think you are overthinking this. Just make a flat heightmap with nothing but grass forest files and a sky.

    I would like to see a blank map that comes with all of the assets from all the other official maps. That way it isn't such a pain to edit all of the cs files.

    That would be a very large download, and anyway I don't think the devs would appreciate me uploading that content.
