    Hey :)
    I'm creating mods for few months and it's getting bigger and bigger so I can't upload it to the site, because it exceeds 433MB. Does anyone know if this limitation can change? for example, my last map is about 1GB after zipped

    You can probably put it in a Google drive folder and then share a link for that.

    yes but I can't upload to mods without upload any file, I tried.

    You need to have some real good contacts in the dev team to be allowed to upload maps that are so huge... I don't get why they won't just raise the limit, it's basically impossible to upload a West Coast size map with custom assets and they say reusing assets is bad because it can break the mod.

    I downloaded the previous map you made from the nexus, alot of the size was caused by unused assets, you could go through the art folder and thin it out quite a bit if thats still the case.

    some more info on this thread that could help https://www.beamng.com/threads/reduce-map-file-size.72005/

    This tool looks great but I can't find any .mis file that he needed to work
    I added more objects in this version and after I search for unused textures and object it still 750MB

    you should try to reduce your textures' size, convert them all to .DDS, reduce your models' polycount, remove anything unnecessary,.. That way you can bring the file size under 500mb and upload it to the repository. Optimizing your files is part of making a good mod

    My models are pretty low poly. If I reduce my textures size they look bad and that's not what I want. there are many off-road maps but none of them give you great graphics and 4K textures and this is what I want to bring for this game.
    even if it says that I can only share it on another mod site.
