Just in time for the holidays, we are stoked to be dropping the optimized Day and Night versions of a fan favorite community map, Industrial Zone by Jean-Olive, along with the newly added ability to move some of the map-native objects using the DIY Map Editor Alpha.
Industrial Zone by Jean-Olive is a classic street map from the creator of ‘Streets’, among countless other incredible maps. Industrial Zone is Jean-Olive’s rendition of a gritty industrial area complete with shipping bays, loading docks and construction equipment creating a unique environment designed for piecing together your perfect lines. The team at Easy Day worked with Jean-Olive to visually enhance the map’s texturing and lighting, as well as optimize it’s technical performance on all platforms. Today’s release also includes both day and night versions of the map.
In addition to the visual and technical optimizations, we have added the ability to move certain objects in the map to allow for even more customization and creative options. (*Note: to use this feature you need to opt into the DIY Map Editor Alpha Branch. To do this: Right click ‘Skater XL’ and open Properties, Select the ‘Alpha’ branch) Throughout Industrial Zone, you will now find objects like construction materials, heavy equipment, and other environmental elements that are native to the map, that can be moved to any location in the map to create new skate spots. To use this feature, press and hold ‘Y/Triangle’ to enter the DIY Map Editor and then select the objects.
Map creators will also have the ability to tag movable objects in their maps in the near future.
To close out 2021, we would also like to give a huge thank you to the Skater XL community for another incredible year. Skater XL wouldn’t be the game it is today without the support and contributions of the dedicated creators and players and we look forward to many more great years ahead. We hope everyone has a great holiday season and we’ll see you all in 2022 with more new content, updates and features. Happy holidays!
