Black Rock Valley by Stevie. HSS Version. V1
Description for Black Rock Valley V1.
OK so a few of you know that I have been working on my second map my first being Ringwoods and although it's a work in progress here's V1 of Black Rock Valley for you all to try out.
The map is log error free.
There are 2 versions of the map for download: The High System Spec and the Standard System Spec. The differences are the HSS spec map has higher terrain lod distance/blend, detail, tree clip and LOD and needs a good High end PC or gaming rig to view the map at it's best. The SSS version has standard settings for tree clip, lod and terrain distance and will play on lesser Pc systems. The actual map designs are exactly the same and neither has multifruit or soilmod at this stage. You will not notice much difference when you first load the 2 versions up but once you start hiring AI you will see the FPS fall in the HSS version unless your PC system is good.
As always I can not say that the map will perform as intended on your pc system.
We are playing the High Spec version although we can only play it on medium settings with around 7-8 AI drivers before the framrate drops below 45fps. Our specs are all intel xenon quad core pc's, 8-16gb ram, Windows 7 64bit Ultimate, Nvidia 680gtx and 780gtx.
625mb Zip. Unzip the main file and place the zips inside your mod folder.
Both map versions come with support zips which must be placed in the mod folder along with the map file.
Mods you will need for the map. Kotte Garrant universal tanker, Joskin Betimax RDS animal transport trailer, and a good multi-trailer for manure, compost, straw etc. The same ones you use in Ringwoods basically.
