Forza Horizon GPS Maps for SimHub

For your pleasure.

I've created interactive GPS maps for Forza Horizon 4 and 5.

They can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1KwQ34aT_bxdOhiBfd4ayQWF3VRf-oSwK?usp=sharing

 

HOWTO:

Just copy the zip files in the TruckMaps folder to the Program Files (x86)\Simhub\TruckMaps folder, and copy the html file in the Web\Maps folder into the Simhub\Web\Maps folder.

You can either open the webpage directly by going to http://:8888/maps/map-fh.html, or, using the new WebPlugin/ServerBaseUrl property in simhub, use a web page view element on your dash to display it.

 

MANUAL:

Very simple really. It displays a map of the environment, and zooms and focusses on your position when driving around. If you change the zoom or focus of the map, a 'Center' button will be displayed on the bottom left (exactly like the ETS maps) that will let you recenter and rezoom onto your position.

There are several layers for the maps which display different points of interest. You can turn those off by clicking on the 'Layers' button, and click on each layer seperately, or click on 'Hide All' or 'Show All' to turn them all off and on.

Please note that all Layers are turned on by default. If you don't want to see the exact location of Barn Finds (or treasure chests on the Lego Map), make sure you unselect that Layer.

If there are related maps available for a map (for instance, Forza Horizon 4 has 2 DLCs available which are linked to the base map), a 'Maps' button becomes available next to the 'Layers' map. Clicking it will open a menu with all the available maps. Clicking a map will change the map to the related on (which will also have a related map menu allowing you to get back to the base map and any other related maps).

Please keep in mind that not all the locations on every map are readily available. The DLC maps have only the basic locations available in Layers, since not every 'marker' is reachable by extracting the zip files of the game.

 

DISCLAIMER:

These maps are provided as is. Use them at your own risk. I will not be responsible for any problems arising from the use of the maps.

These maps are a continued work in progress. It takes a lot of time and trial and error to get these to work. One issue I'm trying to tackle is that manual zooming on mobile devices isn't reliable. This may or may not be fixed, but such is life 🙂

 

Acknowledgements:

The FH4 and FH5 base maps (UK and Mexico) were taken from the freely available incredible interactive maps on swissgameguides.com and swissgameguides.app. The DLC maps for FH4 were taken from the actual game.

Feel free to improve the maps and/or code. I tried to make it as flexible as possible, but if you see anything that can be improved, or have information on layers that are not in the maps yet that you want to add, feel free to do so.

Sorry... I was on vacation for the holidays. Just got back yesterday.

In the folder you have installed SimHub (usually c:\program files (x86\SimHub\) there should be a folder called TruckMaps. If there isn't one, just create it. It is the folder that SimHub uses to store its downloaded ETS/ATS maps. It might only be created once SimHub downloads one of the Truck Simulator maps.

Inside it, there should only be tsmap-<mapname>.zip files.
