    Would you be willing to pay for someone (that would be me) to do your GUI art? Not the scripting as such, but visually, to spruce it up a little?

    I was deafened by the music.

    It is WAY to loud.

    I couldn't find the "GO DRIVE" option at the select menu, took me a couple min. It kinda looks to just be part of the background. Other than that its looking good!

    If you are using real-time shadows for the static stuff, that will waste your fps. You can use realtime shadows for the cars, but bake out lightmaps for the rest.

    Problem is. I can't lightmap anything because there appears to be a problem when I try to that allows me not to lightmap anything.

    I used to think I had that problem too but I managed to fix it just by making sure that every single lightmappable asset had the right checkboxes in. Try it.

    Nice car, however, I would turn down the 'reflectiveness' so the car isn't so shiny/reflective.

    I wax and buff my car all the time and never really get it that reflective (I'd like to though haha)

    Maybe add some decals, dirt/dust, or something to make it look not so new.

    Very good though, keep up the good work!

    Also, not sure if you can or not in Hexagon, but maybe try lightmaping your map in it, instead of trying to do it in Unity.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I have fixed the lighting some, bump maps are better now. And I have reduced the reflections. :)

    I might try that. :)

    Looking good, but it all looks a little flat. The car's too shiny too. Give the textures more contrast, and it'll look even better.

    I will try those things, Fishman.

    Also, I've updated some shaders, etc. Added some shadows. :)

    Custom-coded AI that works. And works damn well! Racing itself works too. Timer, completing the race, laps, checkpoints, etc. It's all there and functional.

    BIG news!!

    The game is now completely modifiable for vehicles, similar to how Midtown Madness works.. Basically, we have a file like an INFO file with a basename and other details like car description and car name, etc. With that, the car model is in .obj format, needing some specific names for some objects that the game uses (WHL_0, WHL_1, WHL_2, WHL_3, HL_0, HL_1, TL_0, TL_1, etc). The game loads the vehicles into the game perfectly and loads their models. You can have as many cars as your heart desires!

    No need for a file either, because you just place the 'info' file into a folder named Vehicles (default cars are there, also) as well as create a folder inside of that with the model that has the basename of the vehicle itself. Simple! Soon I will be working on tune files specifically for camera settings as well as vehicle tuning. Stay tuned!

    After a break.. some updates. Weather works, time of day works. Most of the races are in. Multiplayer is started with some game modes including capture the flag. For single player, we're going to have stunts for bonus points to unlock some vehicles.

    After a small buggy release, and good reception from the modding community, I've decided to do a bunch more, as well as make it a community effort to finish and probably do a free steam release.

    Besides the other updates.. new updates include..

    - Tail lights and reverse lights
    - Improved shaders all around
    - River in the city with draw bridges
    - New Post Processing
    - Engine audio loading
    - Car horns
    - Improved performance
    - Realtime Damage !
    - Edited audio volumes
    - Updated default car models
    - Synced traffic lights
    - Working turn signals
    - Many small bugs and glitches fixed
    - Ingame map
    - Much more

    Also! I'm taking requests for new things, nothing big or complex (don't say ingame track editor right now).

    Anyway, the city is getting further and further completed.

    I decided to go above and beyond today, and instead of doing the usual updates I was planning.. I decided to integrate addon city loading. Here's the first!

    This update is an expansive one, including new vehicles, races for Seaview, and a huge city expansion that almost doubles the size of Seaview itself. Race along new alleyways, highways, parks, and blaze your way downtown into the new and improved Seaview. Many new races (though missing some features) will have you playing for a while, while new optimizations and graphics features push the game further into the 21st century!
