    It's probably been the most system demanding scene I've ever created. Do not try this at home. Cause your PC is going to fry like mine. It's only so smooth because I recorded it all in super slow motion and sped in up in premiere!

    Guys. What do you think? I'd love to know your thoughts on this!

    Other videos you made had better plots and everything was explained, here I have no idea why the train even had jet thrusters, but on the visual side it's definitely your best, the way you combined 2 maps into an unique setting is incredible, there is no choppiness or other weird stuff, and the destruction is phenomenal, epic and realistic, just overall an amazing video like always!

    Yeah, I kind of agree with Agent_Y, it was kind of weird that some random thrusters were on the side of a cargo train.

    Thanks much! I'm always on thin ice with elaborate, convoluted stories. Those usually require longer speech scenes, which is unfavorable for 2 things:
    1. the audience must be able to speak and understand English well in order to understand the story. Otherwise they will jump off because they don't understand anything.
    2. it means more effort in terms of voice actors.

    And I asked myself the question: Is it necessary to explain for this movie why there are jet rockets on it, or is it enough if I simplify it this time and just mention that they are test rockets that are still in development. The question of "what is really necessary vs. what is distracting from the main action" always needs to be weighed out differently for each film.
    I have chosen the category "lots of crumbling metal" for this film, just to see if and how the film is received, also internationally.

    But thanks for letting me know. Feedback is always important.

    By the way: A big thank you to you also for your great mods that you do for the community. The Car Values mod was a real game changer for me.

    Yes I can do that. But I am pretty sure it will take a massive toll on ram or cpu on most PCs, because I essentially imported all assets of italy and wcusa into utah and then played around with it. Also, I think where buildings are placed on my map is saved in the temp folder and not in the zip. so I need to figure that out somehow .. phew ^^ I am not a modder and this was just for fun. But I will try!

    Lots of action, lots of crashes and seems a lot of effort went into this.

    Great job :)

    Temp folder has cached files, for maps you shouldn't touch them as they only increase file size. Levels folder should have your files, you can move them to the zip and it will work, but first test if the map works properly on another computer before releasing it.

    I really dig this one. It's a fresh restart from your previous episode (Grand Heist), and it's not even that much story. Just action, and I feed on it!

    I love the ridiculousness with the driver of the plot. This all happened because one drunk fool forgot to shift his car into park properly. Overall, this has been one of your best episode. The modified map - looks so incredible! I just can't describe it with words. Just creativity oozing out every direction!

    The fact you pulled this off in only six weeks is just incredible. I have no idea how you did that, with the modified map and all, and just all the AI and cars getting destroyed... Nobody can pull that off with even the best systems.

    Very nice of you to say that! Thank you a lot. To be honest, creating a city-like looking skyline is not that much work. Because it's not really a city, it just looks like a city from the highway perspective and the perspective of the train tracks. The towers were placed in a desert and the downtown shots were shot in west coast USA. Yes this one had less story and maybe I will continue with such fact paced, shorter films. It takes less times and nerves and for some is more fun too watch. Also, since lots of my viewers aren't native english speakers, it might also help those to keep up with a story that is mainly explained through images.

    Thanks!!

    Hey @Crash Frontier, do you plan on making a movie series, like many parts of the same movie?
