Intersections are getting better, as in this case  :thumbsup:

Now a few general comments on this topic.
Ingenuity is very important. I would like to see here more intersections occupying the smallest area of ​​the city in the game, adapted to the practical, real functionality of the game.
Some projects occupy the area of ​​almost the entire small city in the game. Creating large, expanded visions is not a problem, but the art is to minimize the area occupied and create a good solution. These proposals are not enough. I write this from the player's position of course  ;)

I put a large dump of images on my archives thread - you might like it!

A new 'tight' parclo A-4 interchange.

I call it tight because I am not using the avenue-RHW ramp pieces; and the TuLEP slip lanes to help reduce the size of the junction.

Click for full size.







Compare to a larger Parclo A-4 on the same road


Want to know why the highways are so close? It's because they split up to the west.

That Parclo A-4 has been modified to accept roundabout connections after I started developing the nearby area.

That is a very nice interchange indeed!

Here's an interchange + exit I did a couple days ago.

Once again I am so ever so thankful going out to the ENTIRE NAM Team for creating pieces that make interchanges/sections like the below.

This is amazing!

Actually a lot of toll road exits in Japan are made similar to this, when they don't use the classic trumpet.

Actually, this is a GREAT imaginative and creative way to make a new type of slick and smooth mini T Interchanges with only one traffic light.  Great job and thank you for showing.

Seaman, the "Half Diverging Diamond" is really a great design . . . I'm surprised it hasn't really been done all that often in the wake of the DDI's surging popularity, as probably the most cost-effective/efficient way of handling a 3-way interchange between a surface street and a freeway.  In fact, AFAIK, the only Half DDIs I know of haven't even opened yet--there's two under construction on the South Mountain Freeway/Loop 202 extension in Arizona (check out the Desert Foothills Pkwy and 17th Ave interchanges on the Pecos Segment), which is planned to open sometime this year.  The Arizona DOT did a rather nifty simulated flyover video of the whole project, if anyone's curious to check it out:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/oGbgyeIEvRs" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/oGbgyeIEvRs</a>

I did actually squeeze in some quality time just playing the game again . . . and did this (which you'll see more of if/when I can actually get Tarkusian Cities going again).  It's basically just a compact T-interchange, with some surface connections very nearby.

Thank you very much, Tarkus. I do like those videos. Strangely, I sometimes think I am better informed about highway construction in some places in the US than in my own backyard  :D.

Anyhow, I cannot see these videos without thinking about inspirations for some NAM projects.

Thx for the info about the "Half Diverging Diamond" usage in the US. I'm surprised as well that we don't see them more often (at all). But at least, as art 128 pointed out, we can see similar setups in Japan.

While we are at it: may I ask wether something came out of the idea to reimplement the DDI and SPUI for the new NAM specs, yet?

Here is one that I am just not happy with as need wider elevated ramps.  Note the very short merge area on the RHW 8S.  The adjoining map has a ramp on the edge which leads to this map as RHW 10S.  I needed to lead on this and make this work somehow.

I live near that project and definitely think the half-DDIs are a great choice. They're also the last interchanges needing to be started, too...

In fact, I've built a couple myself!



A few others since I don't post here much... #1 is the end of a partial beltway, #2 actually was formerly a half-DDI (to the south), and #3 is a suburban interchange.
