Re: RusMap v1.7.4 (1.28.x)

Rootless what do you mean by SR and Steppe? I've been always using since I can remember Promods + Rusmap and Panjelajers map I found being nice. SR as southern region? Isn't this map bugged as hell with tons of errors and not compatible with Promods and also I see for the first time name Steppe. Ar...

Re: RusMap v1.7.4 (1.28.x)

If anyone's curious about current state of RusMap and its siblings (SR and Steppe) here's a photo album of my most recent bike tour N to S down the western edge of Russian, then E to Kazakhstan (took almost a month at one hour per evening): https://www.flickr.com/photos/rootlessagrarian/albums/72157...

Re: RusMap v1.7.4 (1.28.x)

I have recently loaded the whole "Russia Stack" (RusMap, Southern Region, and the Steppe) and am finding them just terrific for the EuroBike (USBcycle). Plenty of looooong two lane roads, towns are few and far between, no roundabouts or toll gates to slow me down, expansive views, big skies. I can j...

Re: RusMap v1.7.4 (1.28.x)

Does RusMap team regularly read this thread? is this a good place to post bug reports, or is there a more official forum somewhere?

Loving the architecture, and the long peaceful country roads...

Re: RusMap v1.7.4 (1.28.x)

Just wanted to congratulate the RusMap team on some good work... I have just started exploring -- Vyborg to St Petersburg, then Schlisselburg. Quite impressed by the quality of architectural models -- plenty of true 3d (details not just painted on flat facades, but modelled in full relief). Nifty hi...

[Fixed] [2.20] Kirkenes port, ferry ramp gaps

https://i.imgur.com/aTkxYC3l.jpg The raised kerb between the roadway and the fence is open at the outer ends (both sides) so you can see right into it, revealing the "backstage" under the visible terrain. See middle far right of image. Seems like the kerb extrusion was supposed to have an end cap o...

Re: EURO BIKE SIMULATOR 1 :-)

I did think of instrumenting the rear wheel so that I could track both RPM (pedaling and wheel spin) and infer the gear from the ratio, since there is little/no sliption where the rear wheel meets the roller. If the in-game vehicle was set to manual gear box, then I might be able to detect gear shif...

Re: EURO BIKE SIMULATOR 1 :-)

Thanks all for kind words! I've been working on this secretively since March 2017, with a long break this summer, just got to publication-ready (sort of) in the last week or two. My video editing skills are nearly nil, as I bet you noticed, but I did try :-) Have tried it out on a few test subjects ...
