I released this a few days ago on garrysmod.org; it was surprisingly well-received, so I decided to make a thread for it here.
This map is a spiritual recreation of the Bonneville salt flats, location of the world’s land speed records. A mile long stretch of near perfectly flat, hard caked salt, this is the place where some of the most powerful machines were put to the test, all for the purpose of putting their name in the record books.
Needless to say, you can’t quite make a mile-long track in Source, but this is as close as you can get. The track runs diagonally across the map to maximize the available space, totaling out to approximately 2700 feet. Not quite a mile, but it does the trick. In addition to the track, there are three basic hangar bays for building purposes. Each one is areaportaled, so when the doors are closed nothing renders inside or out, depending on where you are.
This is designed to be used with ACF engines. If you don’t know what that is, here you go:
I’m aware it’s not my prettiest work, but I made it in a day, so what the hell. If you’re surprised at the map being so white, that’s because it’s a SALT lake. If anything, according to reference photos it should be damn near blue.
I am running the map on my server, along with ACF.
