Ok, due to RL (bought a new motorbike) I havent done any mapping for 2 days, so the best I can do is next week hopefully before the contest.

I wouldn't worry about releasing before the contest. I can always add your entry as a "bonus mission" to the Moddb article. Is Taffersparadise still participating? If so, you'll need to let LordSoth know that this mission is not part of the contest. :) If you wait a week after the contest deadline that should avoid any confusion. I can only be happier to see you spend a little more time on this. You should put in some descriptions of your work to overcome tricky mapping situations and share a little more of the Biker magic though...

Nice pics!

Also be sure to include credits if using any assets :) . Also, please don't forget this for if you make a new version of business as usual, I thought I saw some familiar pieces there.

Haven't you already got more than one motercycle? Although this is coming from the guy with 3 electric guitars and has his eye on a fourth. Boys and their toys eh?

This is the second one - the summer bike. Clean as a whistle, turbine like engine, handles well and dosent look that bad either.

I wish I had my first motorcycle, one of these days. Some some crappy street cruiser, that's all I want.

What ever you do, BikerDude, be careful.

That's not a suggestion.

As for you guys worried about the "deadlines" (whether the contest deadline or the semi-coinciding one you set for yourself, Biker), please do hurry, sure, but please do not rush anything. If you know you are going to have to do a version 1.1 then don't release version 1.

That's a suggestion.

Don't worry about it. It is better to wait until you feel the map is truely ready to release it to the players. I myself have found other things to do while waiting for new TDM FMs (Thanks DN3D community!).

If you need any help beta testing though, I'm around.

BTW that bike looks pretty cool.

That looks like one sexy beast Biker. Don't crash it!

As for the self imposed deadline don't worry if it's a few days late. We should have at least 3 new FM's by the end of next week for the Beginners Contest. The two that I've beta tested are of a V high standard.

Quick, someone steal his bike or crash into it, I don't care what, just get that man from the street and back behind DR!

No doubt, I have no desire for a Harley.

I actually want to finish the rebuild on my Step-Fathers 46 Indian Chief he started in College. But between him/money/mother there are issues, lol. I doubt it will happen any time soon. Plus he painted the gas tank Purple, ughh.

I'd be fine with an old yammy or honda. First I need to acquire somewhere around $1000 I can spend.

Are those grating things on the windows brush/patchwork, a smartly used TDM object, or is that a new texture? :)

Thats a mixture of brushwork/patchwork :-), I was inspired by the ones we see in TDS. The effect is awesome in-game :-)

Have dont a lot of work on reception area of the nobles house, created two routes to get from one side of the map to the other and even some aerial acrobatics in the town section of the map.
