Variterra Archipelago

This map is a port of a captivating terrain from the renowned NuclearOption simulator. Spanning an impressive 6710 square kilometers, it boasts a network of intertwining roads and freeways, along with strategically placed airstrips, bustling towns, and formidable military bases. With dimensions exceeding 80 kilometers in length, it's the ultimate choice for extended journeys and airborne adventures, offering unparalleled opportunities for exploration and immersion.

And now seriously. This map is an unofficial port of a game map from the wonderfull _NuclearOption_ game. Honestly, it was the best investment of $15, because I fell in love not only with the gameplay and interactive component of this game, but also with one of the best landscapes I have ever seen in a flight simulator.
Unfortunately, that game didn't allow you to build planes and drive muscle cars, so I decided to make a port of the map.
Contacting the developer _B25Mitch_, I explained the situation and asked him to provide me with the shader he used in his game. Unfortunately, he refused me this, although he said that he was not against me porting the map.
Long story short, the port looks so terrible compared to the original because I'm stupidly clueless as to what methods the shader uses for blending, so I did the best I could.

This is a truly gigantic map, which has huge dimensions, but is equally suitable for air, land and water transport. It's especially fun to ride hypercars here at a speed of 130mph)

Map of the Variterra Archipelago

The mod is delivered on a modular system, so far the main module and a module with buildings are available.

And if you please, please check out NuclearOption, this game deserves more publicity.

0.77 version

Release of the Main module
Release of the Buildings module

0.78 version

Fixed some colliders
Increased fog distance
Added two new Locations
2 lane roads and 4 lane roads now have same color

0.79 version

Fixed tree collisions (removed tree collisions)
All object materials now have their Smoothness value set to 0.1
The wind turbines have their sound, but it is still drowned out by the engines.
Oh, and I changed the Metallic and Smoothness values ??of the material of the map itself to 0.5 and 0.1 respectively, which I think improved the look of the scene.

Roadmap

Steam release
Combat module
Forest module
Color palette changes

    @FlyingPatriot Man, I tried to download this again, and the textures for the buildings and roads are still missing, like all of it is black. Idk if it has to do with my version of SP or there is just something about those textures.

    @FlyingPatriot as for why your post doesn’t have as many upvotes as Nordschliefe, the thumbnail has pretty low contrast and is dark, so it’s probably not attractive enough for people to click on the post.
    Here’s my edit of the thumbnail, maybe you could consider using it

    @FlyingPatriot is it possible to upload the map onto a hosting site such as Gifyu? I don’t think Discord supports image hosting anymore
    (the link you provided below doesn’t work either)

    this is just an idea, but It would be cool to see an ai convoy drive around the map, especially the desert areas🚚🚚🚚

    The textures of the buildings are not loading properly. I have already downloaded both the building module and the map.
