[REL] Road to Aral - A Great Steppe Addon v1.1

Post by FunTrucker_18 » May 18th, 2019, 11:50 pm

After some road connections I made, I decided to do a kind of "own" map. My first real map with actual cities and definitions.
I stumbled across the Lake Aral many years ago in a school book and I was really shocked what mankind has done with a once beautiful and glorious lake.

I decided to expand the really great "Great Steppe" map with two roads down to the shore of the Lake Aral.
A sparsely populated area with small villages, abandoned settlements and mid-sized cities.

Hop into the Truck and drive through an area which tells his own story. An area telling a story about times gone long ago. Take a break at the shore of the lake Aral and watch the sadness of a dried out lake.

CHANGELOG v1.2b:
-Small corrections
-Added another company near Aral, so you don't need 300 short trips to build up your career.


What's in it?

-A simple map of the steppe-like Area south east of Aktobe.
-Parts of the Aralkum Desert
-5 new cities: Shalkar, Karabutak, Khromtau, Emba/Jembi and Aralsk/Aral
-In Aral, you can take a break at the former shore of this once giant lake.
-A sparsely populated post-soviet landscape
-Gas stations
-Some small villages
-Abandoned settlements and factories
-Some small details

Don't expect too much, why? It has 2 reasons

-It's my first REAL map, so the map will get better from time to time.

-My resources are very LIMITED!
I have an old, crappy laptop and can't afford a new one at the moment but I try to do my best.

You need all DLC's & The Great Steppe!
Put the map ABOVE The Great Steppe!

Thanks to: 09_kz (Original author of the Great Steppe) for support and tips, Arayas for the nice map editor tutorials, BenganJ for possible (future) testing and all of the other guys I forgot. This map wouldn't be possible without your help and support!

Thanks man, I probably need somebody who can create at least one special prefab via Blender or other 3D programs. The "Aral Lake Monument" standing on the former shore of the lake and reminding people of the better times :)

It's sad how little people can't live their simple lifes because some costumed idiot has an ideea. Take your time and do something decent, i have seen already too many projects abandoned in last years. I'm close to zero in 3D, but maybe our comunity has a doctor in this stuff somewhere around.
TBA it's a great release date :D

Yeah, I know but Aqtau doesn't interfere with my project, it's the opposite direction. :D

Yeah, but my system went down and I had to recover it completely. At least I could save my maps & works on a external drive. :D
