Overview

Ultimate Driving: Westover Islands is the first and most popular game of the Ultimate Driving Universe. This game is set on four islands which are connected to UD: Odessa and in the future, Harriston. This game was originally called Ultimate Driving II since it was originally a revamped version of Ultimate Driving II Classic. UD: Westover Islands is also the most popular UDU game. It is the only Ultimate Driving game to receive 100+ million visits.

There are four islands that make up the Westover Islands collectively as an archipelago. From largest to smallest Westover, the largest and most populated holding the three towns of Westover (county seat), Woodbury and Kensington, South Beach, Palm Shores Island, which is home to its namesake town Palm Shores, and Angler Island which is a Wildlife Refuge. Nomtauk, despite being part of this game, is on Alan Island which is an island but is not part of the archipelago.

History

Originally, this map was oriented north-south with I-76 as Delaware Route 1, US 40 as Delaware Route 3, Chestnut Street as Delaware Route 2 (later SR 3 until being downgraded to county level) and the US 40 Business Route as state routes 4 and 5. Delaware State Route 12 was originally State Route 6 and prior to the current map, US 17. When the game was revised to become east and west, the US and Interstate designations replaced some of the original state route designations.

This game features country roads, 6 towns, an oil refinery, 3 bridges, and a local port. Also, a bus terminal was added on January 13, 2017 - making Westover the main hub for public transit in the region. Furthermore, on March 26, 2017, this game was renovated to add a new look to the southern part of the main island.

Westover Islands has the most game changes out of any game on Ultimate Driving. With an average of three map updates per year, the game has seen its map grow and expand over multiple updates. The greatest update of them all was in South Beach. Back in around 2015-2016, South Beach covered the entire island of where it is now situated today. In 2017, South Beach downgraded to a humble and quiet beachside village.

The causeway on US 40 was not exempt, having a drawbridge installed in July 2017 near Palm Shores. In August 2017, the US 40/DE 12 intersection was redesigned. The drawbridge doesn't lift like the ones in the Newark Beta and Currituck. It was integrated into the causeway and had its traffic signals removed, making DE 12 the only main road in the area without signals.

In January 2018, the Harriston Bay Bridge and Tunnel (HBBT) was added to the map, completing the Delaware portion of I-76 and adding a large toll plaza. Angler Island Wildlife Refuge and small parts of Alan Island and Nomtauk were also added in this update.

In October 2020, the Mount Astley region was added above the Cape Henlopen Tunnel. This coincided with the off-roading update which included multiple vehicles being tuned into an off-roading chassis. This beautiful area is certainly a first for Roblox games and features beautiful waterfalls and precarious off-roading trails.
