I now release a test version of a map containing my New York inspired buildings.
The reason for the release is to gather info about how it performs and how I should progress with this project.
It contains 15 custom buildings, most of them fully enterable (some have 30+ floors!).
It's still in the middle of the development process, in other words ALOT of unfinished stuff.
The island is extremly simple, there is no decorative objects at all.
Also the buildings are very empty, since furniture decrease performance alot.
So before adding any details like furniture and stuff in the alleys I need to know how it performs in a clean and simple state.
READ THIS BELLOW CAREFULLY!
I ask you to read the "Known bugs list" bellow before posting any bugs.
To help me, focus on answering these questions:
How does it perform?
Should the map be bigger/less decorated or smaller/more decorated?
How do you play the map, against AI or PvP? What should I focus on?
Report other bugs!! And not how empty the buildings are or lame the map is, remember it's released in the middle of development and I need many more months to actually complete it!
All suggestions and ideas are of course appreciated!
The buildings are the main addon, the terrain is just for testing purposes.

I hope to see some missions for it soon and to hear some feedback!
