I wont be adding a whole lot of new buildings In the Chicago map. Each city is already decorated with about 5 to 10 stock buildings. There are also tons of houses littered across the map. If I add anything new, I might create some low poly barns for the rural areas.

I have recently added the Trump tower to Chicago. I plan to also update the St. Louis airport and add runway 11/29. Before these updates, the Chicago map was set in a time period before 2003 so that I could justify keeping Meigs field. I've since decided that it doesn't have to be completely historically accurate. I will keep Meigs. This update will be called "Chicago_v3.0", the most recent is "Chicago_v2.2".

The new St. Louis airport is almost complete. This will be my last major update to the Chicago scenery for now. I am aiming to release these updates in mid August.

Wow, awesome updates there mh3w, and I am totally digging the Trump International Hotel Chicago.

Also kudos for adding RWY 11/29 at STL. Too bad it will likely never be used as much in real life, but hmm, maybe one of our VAs can set up a hub there and in can be used in the virtual YS World!

No, I made everything in-house for that airport. I may have used a very similar process to create them though.

Recently I've been working on a lot of bug fixes and organization Issues. My updates are in their final stages, I will add more photos later this week.

I've just finished this model of a low-poly pickup truck. I have two versions of it, one in blue for civil use and one thats armed. The armed pickup has less ammunition, shorter range and weaker armor than the stock gepard. Its biggest advantages are its speed and acceleration. I anticipate that using this in a ground defense mission will be challenging and fun.

I am now testing all of my new vehicles together. I should be done with this stage by the end of the week. Hopefully I can release these updates by the 20th.

Nice work. You did a great job on the anti-aircraft trucks. Can't wait till the mission course is completed. :D

@mh3w

Would you be willing to accept a request make a low poly Aventador? I'm really loving your vehicles. Reminds me of when I collected Micro Machines.

I don't have an Aventador, but I do have this generic supercar. I made it while looking at pictures and specs of the Lamborghini Diablo and Gallardo. There is also some Aventador, McLaren and GTA 4 Infurnus mixed in. I've made a lot of updates to it since the last time I showed a pic of it on here. It performs like a supercar should, except that the doors don't open.

It goes 0-60 in about 6 seconds with a top speed of 230mph. I based the performance loosely around the Lamborghini Diablo.

This is the old version. Was 39.8kb

This is my recent update. Its 49.5kb thanks to the visible interior and brake pads.

The side and back of this car was inspired by the GTA 4 Infurnus and the Aventador.

Besides this car, I have a compact sedan, full sized sedan(with police and taxi versions), and a controllable tank. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the tank yet, just thought it'd be cool to play with.

6 seconds? That's not a supercar if it doesn't do 0-100 under 4 seconds.

@Rise and Shine

I looked into it and yes, the car should be able to go faster. This particular car is a little small so I've compared it to the Gallardo which is a v10. Sometimes I mistakenly call this a supercar, but it is officially a sportscar.

@iqmal_97 I see what you mean, haha.

Earlier today I released the new 241st Porlamar scenery. I would like to thank everyone for all of your feedback and support over the last few weeks. In late September I expect to upload my main scenery pack including Chicago v3, Runway City and etc. As always, I will keep posting updates here.

And also, make the buildings in Runway City collidable. I once organized a furball there with the purpose of low altitude, building evading fights. But everyone was going right through the buildings. *realism*
