    Albuquerque presents one of the major road network nodes in New Mexico expansion. It is not a great surprise that we paid a bigger than a small amount of our time and attention to the virtual creation of the largest New Mexico city.

    The Big I is a complex stack interchange located in central Albuquerque, New Mexico. This giant crossing of interstates proved to be a major challenge for our map design team. A huge structure in the middle of a city, combined with flat landscape not allowing us to use any limited-visibility tricks, it makes it really difficult to get enough fine detail into the scene. Too much detail is the enemy of high framerate, and finding the right balance is never easy when we build cities in our games.

    As if the interchange in the center of Albuquerque was not enough of a task with all the AI traffic also affecting performance, there is a truckstop sitting right next to it. We decided to try our best to portray this situation in the New Mexico map expansion. We really hope that you will have fun visiting and exploring the city!
