I tried to create a handy map to test new, modded or tweaked vehicles. I wanted to avoid some annoying habits of the “Proving Ground” but add some features I’ve been missing all the time.
If you are do some modding or tweaking, this map will probably do a better job testing your modifications than the original “Proving Ground”- at least it does for me.
If you are not modding any files, this map will give you enough places to fool around and spend a good time with your favourite trucks.
I recommend to replace proving ground with this map, I added spawning points so you don’t have to waste time driving around- but these points are only available if you replace “Proving Ground” with this map.
To replace the default proving map rename the level files to level_proving.dds and level_proofing.stg
So here you go, the map features:
1 x garage
1 x fuelstation
1 x manual loading
1 x automatic loading
1 x objective
2 x Ural_4320
1 x loading ramp (to get one vehicle on the back of another)
3 x ramps with 15°, 25° and 35° gradient
1 x mud-area
1 x sand-area
3 x lakes (be careful)
1 x basin (be careful)
2 x rivers
1 x asphalt-area with various elements like the torsion-road known from the demo
1 x asphalt road circuit
1 x test-park with various tracks and challanges
8 x spwaning points known from the “Proving Ground”
1 x “hidden path”
The map also gives you some “normal” tracks and roads you would expect on a normal logging map, to test your truck under real circumstances.

it looks like an awesome map, but how would you go about replacing the proving grounds with this?

Download link added. And explanation on how to replace the default map.

To replace proving grounds, rename the files located in /Media/levels “level_proving_2.dds” and “level_proving_2.stg” to “level_proving.dds” and “level_proving.stg”
The line under the explanation covers the underscore between level and proving!
You can rename every map in the levels folder, as long as it starts with “level_” and both files (dds and .stg) have the same name.

Downloaded it and renamed the files but it says ‘Can’t load proving ground – file either missing or old’

I did everything and renamed the 2 files and then I opened proving ground and it just went to the default map. PLEASE HELP ASAP

great addition to really get the trucks tested – Some times I’ll just load this up and drive round it – It’s that good!
