Minor Update! Now added Shadows and Ambient Occlusion Bake!
0.4 VERSION ON THE FIRST POST OF THE THREAD! Official Thread
Watch this please, just 1 minute
A Short Story you should read..
"Explorers have found this abandoned place in some unknown location. Perfect Condition, like if somebody, ...or something, has been living there.
Not a single sign of vegetation of other life signs is noticeable. The weather is always Cloudy, but it never Rains. Some weird Structures are present there, some of them have some strange signs on them, and the word N-LABS, probably the name of this place. A lab, to test what?.."
Quote from Explorers Diary:
"This place is Quiet and Spooky. Some of us are acting strange. We felt like being Watched. Those Towers, there is no way to get up there, no entrance, and we can't see trough those dirty windows. [...] At night we hear strange metallic sounds, we can't find the source of them. Maybe this place isn't as abandoned as we tought..." - Rest of the page were stripped off
Additional Notes from the Explorers found on the last page of the Diary:
-CryEngine SDK (Ground Texture)
The Explorer never returned home. We don't know who sent us the Diary.
You need RoR version 0.38 or later version for this map to work properly. Donâ€™t come crying because the map is slow and/or your vehicle doesnâ€™t contact the roads. You need 0.38 or later.
it does take a minute or two for the map to load, but its worth it
New update as of 6-29-11
Redone Rockton spawn area
Load spawner at the airport
Added a bus station (its crappy says AL T )
Added a lousy oil rig
Fixed the height of the two load spawners at the port
Added American speed limit signs and parking limit signs thanks to AndrewB
Some spawn areas show the trees and some dont for better FPS, and easy too delete trees if you want.
Got laggg? read below:
The port, quarry, and rockton city / bus station spawn areas do not have trees for better FPS, delete the trees at the end of the other .terrn file if you want.
Port and airport only have the oilrig mesh enabled on the terrain. To see it on the other maps, just delete the // in front of the opocoilrig. It is contactable, but rorbot goes right through the oilrig.
A large mod of Lennis Opmap, which is now called Rockton county. It is a terrain that is about the size of the North St.Helens map. This terrain has almost everything that makes for a very fun map. A terrain with flat areas, farm land, hills, a small river/stream, a large quarry, off road trails, forest, port, neighborhoods, airport, a town called Rockton and Lakeville, industrial area, two schools, and much more that will make this terrain fun for a long time. Also it no longer conflicts with Lennis Opmap.
There are multiple places you can spawn at.:
Rockton, Lakeville, airport, port, quarry, farm, industrial area.
Credits and help:
Lenni: for this great terrain and allowing for it to be developed even further.
Box5Diesel: for letting me use various objects from his Baker Ranch map.
Credit to the creator of the trees on the F1 track.
TampaPowers: for helping to make this map now driveable at night and really shows the detail on the terrain.
Easy: for adding photo textures to my sketchup buildings, Rockton Easy bridge and helping with the terrain.
DNE: for the content upgrade package, like the signs, port pieces, industrial buildings, and row houses.
Silvermanblue: for letting me use his buildings from the Nadexmap and helping me with the map.
SkyWlf77: for using his time to contact Mirfi and him letting me use the Romania buildings
which were made by Beolex whom also gave me permission to use the buildings.
Thatsnice: for the airport jetway and helping with the map.
csxgp38-2: for making the rail station.
Adamwright: for the garage.
Busdriveruk: for the fire station which I heavily modified.
AndrewB: for the American speedlimit signs, parking, and school zone signs
Brickman: making it all work and making buildings
Since it is not officially my terrain, you can modify without my permission.
Let me know if you want to use my sketchup buildings on another map.
I made the: Optimal-Mart, airport terminal, small and large schools, police station,
fire station, rock crusher, BrickVision office, mayors house, and oil rig (please dont use the oil rig it sucks).
1.5km x 1.5km.
The terrain is set in rural Greece and includes farmland, villages, forests and mountains. There is a long network of dirt and asphalt roads which run throughout the terrain and the various areas of the map complete with signs. An FPS version with reduced vegetation density and distances for use with slower computers is also included which gives a significant increase in performance.
1. Copy .zip and paste it into your RoR terrain folder (such as "C:UsersYOURNAMEDocumentsRigs of Rods 0.38terrains" (Windows 7) 2. Open the .zip and then go to a folder called "+++ Impostors +++", inside you will find a bunch of png files; copy these to wherever RoR stores imposters (default is the root directory - where the ror.exe is).
3. Run RoR and drive
I give permission for anyone to use the objects, textures, sounds and anything else created by me in this .zip for free Rigs of Rods projects provided I, LJFHutch, am credited with their creation. I also give permission to adapt or modify the objects/textures etc to suit your terrain (such as retexturing a tree's leaves, changing the saturation of the grass texture, etc), again, with proper credit and so long as you do not claim to have created them yourself. However, seek my permission for any published modification of this terrain.

Normal map shader - Artifex Terra 3D, thanks also to Nipash for helping me out with that.
Thanks to everyone who helped me out, especially DeGa and Nipash.
Here is my first terrain!!!
it means Minima but it isnt mini
I hope you like my map!!!
Remember i make it without a programm XD
You can make crashtests (very good ), test cars and trucks, Hauling, Race on a small racingtrack, fly with a plane or a heli and you can drive with busses...
not to big and not to mini , allot of things you can do....
4 villges, a highwaybridge, 2 schools, airports,
10busstops + more , 4. truckshop, 4. loadspawner, 2. airports,
allot of houses, shops, firedepartment, busdepo, trafficlights,
palmtrees, chrimastree, garage, gasstation, ...
and i have the permission from Prt Audiman for his roads !!!
I THINK IT IS THE LAST UPDATE !
ITS BETTER YOU DELETE THE OLD MINIMA.zip
and DOWNLOAD THIS. !!!
MAYBE YOU NEED A BETTER PC FOR THIS MAP...sry to the people who the map lags
Most people can not read descriptions and complain they do not come out of the truck shop:
------------------------->for good driving outside the truckshops install this: http://www.rigsofrods.com/repository/view/1730#comments please! <- it really works!!!!!!!!!!!!!
or use the open-truckshop at the spawn!

I have decided to release MitCity officially, since I won't do any more work on it, I find it a bit of a waste to just "cancel" MitCity after how far it's come, so now, go enjoy the Final Release of MitCity! it will work in RoR 0.38, just some of the objects won't be collidable. in 0.39 everything is collidable.
The Map has countless elements suitable for roleplay, it has a fire station, a hospital, an impound lot, repairshop, car dealer, airport (non working) gas stations, variaty of houses from flats to villas. it even has a test centre for cars, test the suspension there, or do a full spec crashtest. the possibilities are endless!
Hello. This is the last version for Verniocity, is, the last. No more updates for this, since it has everything now.
The interesting part of this map is that is an urban map, but not a flat map.. Anyway it have a long highway around the map, an offroad course, houses, fire department, so everything that an urban map need.
It have grass, trees, alpha splatting that give a nice look the the map..
Use direct X
pedropp22 Some time ago he give me a help with the texture map, I think it's a nice thing to credit him
scania970 Heightmap, some objects, objects placing and other things
CG Textures Textures
Please watch this short video (Is updated) just 2 minutes
This is another version I made for Verniocity. It is compatible with the other one (the original one )
Anyway this version have the city with flood roads. A lot of objects are destroyed and there are trees, bus stops on the road and many other things!
DELETE THE OLD ZIP BEFORE USING THIS ONE!
-Added a load Spawner
-Added a truck shop on the top
-Added 2 version: Spawn on Top and Black Ice (Road is all ice) both with FPS version too
==== Trailer (please watch it)
After some long time working on this map it's finally done
It was made as showcase for the my Meshed Roads Tutorial.
What it has?
- A long Meshed Road made in Blender (yey some smooth road) - A nice landscape - Road Signals (Watch out for them, they are usefull) - Normal and FPS version (With trees and without them) - Perfect for Racing, Cruising, Hauling or launching yourself from the cliff :P
Terrain - Me
Road - Me (GCTexture for texture)
Tree Texture - Taken from Pralo Map
Snow and Rock Texture - CGTextures and Google
Starling Island is an island map for Rigs of Rods (tested with v0.38.67), tuned for roleplaying. The map features:
- Port Starling - A large coastal town with docks, a marina, emergency service buildings and lots of nasty, tight corners, everything cramped around Starling bay
- Smaller towns and islands
- A large open mining area that happens to double as a neat spot to wreck vehicles
- An airstrip
- A bus stop network
- Cute details
- 6 Starling Island public service vehicles
- 3 spawn points
- Redeye (terrain, object placement, some objects, vehicle reskins & minor modifications)
- donoteat (Penguinville buildings & roads - much of this map's eye candy heavily relies on his work)
- Betzi (houses)
- Lenni (original Sprinters & Firetruck)
- Arthur Hucksake (original Stepvan)
- Some objects from the stock North St. Helens map have been utilized
- Trees from the stock F1 test track have been utilized
1. Unpack into your Rigs of Rods "terrains" folder
2. Regenerate Cache
3. Have fun!
Please delete your old Starling-Island folder before you install this one.
- Updated the Weasel rescue boat with the new, smoother-handling version
- Converted lots of textures to .dds
- Minor stuff
- Unless bugs or issues with future RoR versions arise, this is considered the "final" Starling Island. Have fun!
- Heavily modified Flatmap with railroad line, not so flat any more ;-)
- Two versions: Normal with manually operable switches (use your mouse) and FPS with simplified switches
- All track pieces included, you can use them to build your own map
- Working buffer stops
- A nice train spawner: circle in the front is for locos, circle in the back for wagons
- Switches are controlled by F-Buttons: F1 left, F2 straight ahead, F3 right. Click here for a tutorial
- Be careful when you operate the switches while driving a long train above multiple switches, derailments may occur
Under certain conditions derailments may occur, so be warned.
- sputnik_1: optimizing, texturing, switches, buffer stops, additional track layout, heightmap
- donoteat: track and station meshes, track layout
- BigBoy: much help and testing, train spawner, heightmap help, catenary

NOTICE : Pralo's Caelum wont work properly in ROR version 38. Still good in 37.126.
Welcome in Pralognan La Vanoise.
This map is somehow a replica of the actual town in the Alps. It provides travellers with accommodation, transport, all for comfort and fun. The Hotel will be the perfect starting point for rides in the mountains, taking the Telepherique or just climbing the steep hills with any off-road vehicle. The boldest drivers will manage to the glacier at all costs (several truck shops can be found here and there) whereas those just eager to have a nice look at our sea of ice will take the plane.
There is a ground model with different kinds of ground (snow, rock, mud, ice...), a paged geometry forest of (natural) pines, a customized Caelum sky and snowy weather can be observed in some cases. So make sure you have 100% vegetation and Caelum engaged in the configurator. No other settings are required and as the map is fitted with very large textures it wouldn't be advised to turn more option because FPS might be critical. A FPS friendly version will be provided separately.
Many thanks to anybody helped, encouraged and supported me, more particularly
Dega, Lepes, Brickman, Buttlamo, Lenni.
Special thanks to people who created things that I used or transformed :
Pricorde & Various (cable car based on NSH first monorail)
BartolomeoPL (Cherokee fire truck seen in pics and vids)
Box5diesel (Dodge Cummings firstgen included in the zip file and Toyota longbed seen in vid)
AndrewB (Caelum .os file that I tuned to get rid of shaders problems)
WARNING: make sure you run RoR "as an administrator", otherwise the map will crash, it's like this...
- Added a full new map, dirt track, rally style
- Reworked all ground textures and materials, now features normal mapping and alpha splatting
- Reworked the vegetation a lot
- Reworked caelum sky and atmosphere
- Angelscript races for both maps
Thanks a lot to LJFHutch, who let me use his birch grass texture.
Thanks also to Lifter, I used a few objects from a previous project that he modelled and I textured.
You may like to download the K700 from ZTS which fits good in the scenery: http://www.rigsofrods.com/repository/view/781
Activate the vegetation, the maps are really based on it.
If your computer can handle it, activate HDR, the maps are pretty much designed for this (will look rather dark otherwise)
Some videos better than long texts (the car in the second video is not available, don't ask)
This map is pure offroad with tons of mud, really deep water crossing, rocks,... It is inspired by the extreme offroad challenge held around Ladoga lake in Russia.
Play the map with vegetation ON otherwise it will look terrible.
It features a time race - not working with the present version of RoR, but fully functionnal otherwise.
Fir trees not made by me - I don't know who made them, thanks a lot they're great!
Rock textures from CGTextures.com
Here's a little somethin for those who don't have the skills to pass Devil's Playground ^.^
"Best of Mountain Bash and Small Island" Jaw-4
3 days ago I was showing my friend how maps randomly generate, and I happened to get a really awesome one. So I carved tons of intersecting trails around and through mountains
Great FPS, I average around 30 in MP with 3 other people, and I don't have a super computer!
Some of the hills are hard, some are easy, but it's a good ol' MP trail riding map
Some trails only work 1 way
Most fun to drive in with a truggy or the box5 Yota
***YOU MUST USE CAELUM SKY OR ELSE VEHICLES WILL TURN PINK***
Thanks to beta testers:
Lone Peak - Hill Climb map
Mainly added angel script race, and reworked detailled textures a bit. Also the terrain should look less polygonal in the background
The goal of this map is to give you a smooth road for hill climbing. Take a powerful rear drive car and go!
- Smooth road, spec and normal mapped
- Alpha-splatting (detailled textures)
- Marina, ferry gate, multiple load and truck spawners
And many more!
Thanks to Lenni for letting me use his stone bridge
Thanks to Lifter for providing the very cool road shader
Thanks to invited members for valuable beta testing
Most of the textures from CGTextures.com
Everything made with L3DT, Blender and GIMP
TIP: disabling vegetation should highly increase your framerate
Delete the old zip!
Includes FPS and regular
What is it?
This terrain is all about testing your skills in the various aspects of off-roading. It's pretty large with all kinds of stuff for everyone to enjoy ;D
You can rock crawl, bounce, mud bog, or race your friends baja style!
If you don't cheat, the rock crawling trail can take 1+ hours!!!
-Double diamond extreme rock crawling trail (right side)
-Diamond rock bouncing trail (left side)
-Nastiest mud bog in RoR (middle)
-LJ's rocks and vegitation meshes
-TANK TRAP!!! (bouncer trail)
-One of the largest, and most challenging, hill climbs at the end of the crawling trail
LJ for meshes
Straubz for helping me learn how to do all this in every aspect
Grecian for texture help
xGRAVEKILLERx for server
Special thanks to:
Jaw-4: has been here since beta 01! We've stayed up until 3am working on this map, and he's worked day and night with me. Provided some great pics for me to edit, like the baja mini
Ford_Boy: also been here since beta 01! He's the one who told me what other's wouldn't, such as how I went over-board with rocks XD
All road bugs are fixed apart from those who dont havc 0.38.17 there is nothing wrong with the map.
it now loads IN 3 SECONDS and is great for fps (now)
this map is for driving or if you want to fly you can still do that, it has a ski jump made for cars and has a very long highway, there are a maze of roads for you to drive on, with signs which are labelled 130, 90, 60 etc, THESE ARNT SPEED SIGNS, they are an indication to which road you are on. i hope you will enjoy this much improved update, if you have already downloaded RE-DOWNLOAD.
UPDATE 1.1 - Fixed Color | Now Grey | AO Texture Even Better
If Updating: Rember to Regen Cache
The first in it's genre. A Test Zone that includes almost all kind of Tests possible and Compressed with Fun and Imagination!
What you it features:
- Blender Made

NWF (North-Western Frontier
Box5: Original Terrain
JakeB: Multiple textures and advice
Minitrucker: Tree placing, skin for the BBQ and many more things
Hemi: Various textures, Placement of some trees, other various things
This is an update of Wild forest. It was complete rubbish. Delete that and put this in it's place.
This is Tuanga Challenge Death Road Style Terrain. A remote village called Tuanga is in need of supplies for the winter ahead, only problem is, its 14000ft above sea level, and the nearest depo is next to the sea, (how convenient). Your challenge or mission whatever you want to call it, is to deliver the supplies safely, and quickly to the village, of course, You'll need to own a truck first. Deliver whatever you think they need, whether it be food or a new log cabin.
With 14km of terrifying cliff edge road, facing 5000ft drops and extreamly rough roads, Ice patches and hairpin switchbacks, Tuanga is sure to be your toughest challenge to date!
Thanks to Miura for this monumental update
Now with working races and the bug where you fall through the road has gone! All thanks to Miura
New Sky including animated clouds
Fantastic detail including brand new alpha maps/textures and a whopping fps improvement
Spawn point added at the top
New resting area
The gravity is about a third of Earth's, so you'll have to use special Mars vehicles that you'll find there http://www.rigsofrods.com/repository/view/4881 . You really must download that vehicle file because the map will have problem loading if Ror cannot find the trucks.
There is no vegetation on the planet (yet) but set your configuration to 100% vegetation as fields of boulders and rocks use this feature.
Please use Caelum and anisotropic filtering.
The map is very large. There may be some issues due to its size and the way a lot of objects are displayed. No other feature of the configurator than those aforementioned really has to be set on (lights, particles, shadow, etc), so don't push the system, try to find the lowest settings instead if you have problems. For instance you may have to have Ror play on one core instead of two, if you have problems with a shaking camera. Beta-testers reported an impossibility to load the map, a group missing. Try again, it will most likely work the second time. Other issues were reported, so check the Miniredmars WIP thread for information.MINIREDMARS
A lot of details about its making is in the thread, so don't hesitate, there is a lot to read. But if you want a more concise matter, check the travellers book. It gives all the key features of the map, what to do and how, etc. MINIREDMARS
Thanks a lot to Lifter, Tdev, Jov, Neorej16, DeGa, Miura, JohnV, LJFHutch, Aivar, Brickman, Simpeligent for their help, and anyone supported my work during these 16 months.
This update shouldn't show that annoying red cross
PLEASE : disable dual-core hyperthreading - use simple core
I'm currently working on a smaller Mars map : Argyre, which you'll find in the WIP section. MINIREDMARS-ARGYRE
This is a low grade Miniredmars map, not quite a FPS version, but easier to handle by slow computers. There s no groundmodel on it so the default groundmodel will apply. Due to low gravity, this default groundmodel might be irrelevant (vehicles gliding too long), so please check this MINIREDMARS to change the default groundmodel.
Yet another version of the Flatmap terrain. This time it is a mod of DNEs flatmap with his roads. (So I can have something to start with to mod the map).
This is Flatsville county. A small county with about a population of 1000. Low taxes make this a good place to start a business. All kinds of jobs are available here from a bus driver, truck driver, lawyer, farmer, teacher, pilot, crane operators and so much more.
Known bugs: Some buildings have no collision like the logging mill, your tires will get stuck in the middle of the police parking lot, and some lag when you look across the map.
There are multiple places you can spawn at.( change the spawning place by changing the .terrn file.
Construction yard, airport, race track, and town.
Credits and help:
Donoteat: for the terrain mod, Penguinville buildings and other content that is available on the repo..
Box5diesel: for some BakerRanch buildings.
Maddogtowing for the request
AndrewB for the signs
Brickman for putting it all together
this is the first terrain that i have made for rigs of rods, some of you have the beta versions, seems to be no more bugs but i could be wrong
,the terrain was just for me to learn on but it kept growing into what it is now.
there's a few hill climbs, some smooth high speed dirt roads and some off road trails, if you like speed, rock bouncing or just exploring, this is a pretty big terrain.
read the read me for more info, if you find some sort of bug please let me know!
it was make to work on version 0.38
let me know your frame rate in the forums test1 terrain test1-terrain , i will know if i over did anything
