    DESERT EXPANSE | PATREON BETA 1.0

    Finally, after TWO months of work, this beast of a map is finally done (The bulk of it). This is and will be my best map for a long while. This is up with Cyberpunk and Cartoon being one of the "greats" of mine.

    This map is full of many easter eggs and things to discover! This map has A LOT of things in it for being as big as it is (8x8 km).

    Patreon Map Link -> https://www.patreon.com/posts/desert-expanse-1-67497646

    If you do choose to support me, I REALLY appreciate it! I love what I do, and appreciate all support I get as it allows me to continue to put as much love and care into these maps I create.

    And if you don't want to support my Patreon, I will ALWAYS release my big projects to the public. I tend to give my patrons a month early access for Beta Testing, and then the full release will come out to the public.

    Damn, Spencer. It does seem like a beast of a map indeed!
    I love how you integrated the worn and cracked look onto the roads, makes it look much more realistic.
    That water park thing (the picture with all the colourful pipes and stuff) fits in surprisingly well.
    Just one quick question: does this map have PBR assets?

    I mean technically not dedicated ones, but there is a dirt trail around the whole map with lots of offroading capabilities. May work on some rock crawling trails in the future

    How does this map run on a lower end computer? Is it fps heavy or should it work fine?

    For the lower end not entirely sure, I get 50 - 60 fps on a gtx 1070 graphics card running at 1440p if that's any measurement. Though, I've done as much optimization as I can with the map.

    The smaller slides tend to eat tires. My only suggestion would be a couple of small route 66 touristy stuff peppered around the map. Like large fake dinosaurs, quirky hotels. Abandoned structures. Ghost towns and empty mines. Just a couple of ideas.

    These would actually look sick and not require too much meshes to build

    Yes, I am aware of the smaller slides doing that, and those are good suggestions. I think the fake dinosaur is a really good idea, along with just overall more abandoned stuff.
