"Finally arisen, we owe many thanks to those who helped construct our colony."
- New Portum Municipal Authority

Backstory/basic info

Much like the colonization of British North America, the colonization of newly found planets was carried out by various small religious sects. New Portum was no exception. This advanced colony was highlighted spirituality along with technology. Some symbols of hexagons accompanied by trees, or perhaps ferns, are common in the city, as those symbols represent the combination of New Portum's highly spiritual religion with its feats of engineering. The city was designed with the capitol on an island within the island's large bay. The island of the capitol is named "Origin Island". This map of the colony includes buildings that were handmade by the Simpleplanes community, which creates a stunning urban scene. The map also includes abundant natural beauty, with expansive beaches, mountains, a lake, and a coral reef. There are also 3 other islands, including a power facility, spaceport, and outpost.

Before you download...

Note that the downloads are through google drive. You may need an account, but you do not need me to share the file with your google account.

Due to the lag that it produces, as well as the file size, this map is barely compatible with android devices. Android users, download AT YOUR OWN RISK. I am aware of the bugs in the android version of the mod. The android link is primarily for users with extremely powerful devices.

For all users, expect drops in framerate around the city.

Features

  • Beautifully intricate urban landscape
  • Expansive road system leading to various points of interest.
  • Interesting natural features such as mountains, a lake, a coral reef, etc.
  • Various outpost islands.

    @DuckMintnewprofile The meshes that I use now only have 10 parts max, so it won't be that bad!

    @spefyjerbf Awesome, but keep in mind, it will take a long time to make every part LOD'd. So perhaps use a few, but also re-use some prefabs. :D

    @DuckMintnewprofile Thanks! I was thinking of adding a LOD component. I'll certainly do that in my next map.

    @spefyjerbf Yah, I was just going to give you tips anywa.
    For every object, add an LOD componen. If you're unsure how to use these, maybe look at some tutorials online. You should set the first LOD to the object I(it will take a long time to do this if you have hindreds of objects, but it's worth the wait).

    For making trees easier to run, go to standard assets>terrain(?) >speed tree(select the prefab for whichever tree you use in-game) then adjust the LOD scales so that it reads-"99,98,97,10". That will make for easier rendering of trees.
    Also, (this only applies to massive terrain parts) set the pixel error to 10/20, that will make the FPS increase by about 100%.
    That's all I can remember at the moment, but if I come up with anything, I'll try to sing out, and let you know.
    Sweet as?

    @DuckMintnewprofile I do have the file, but it is massive. It would take a long time (as in hours) for me to upload for you, and that time would be best spent working on an upcoming map instead.

    @spefyjerbf Hey, do you still have the project for this? Because you could potentially change the playability of this so that the FPS increases by about 200%.
    I found some sneaky features when trying to make my maps easy to run.
    Do you want some tips?

    @Awsomur Yeah, this one is very laggy. My next map should be relatively lag-free though!

    @nfsplatinum I already am working on a map project. It is the least laggy map that I have created, and it looks dang good! It will be android compatible.

    Hey, could you make a highway map? Something android users could have an easier time using. I can't find any good roadway maps for android.

    @septicfoot Understandable. This mod is, most likely, the laggiest map in SP.

    @JMicah4 Yeah, I can run a low part aircraft (under 350 parts) at a decent framerate on this map.

    @spefyjerbf it's powerful enough to run the shadows.
