I'll answer that. Chrissim provided testing material of dual traffic pathed networks. He discovered how to make a four lane road fit onto one tile with a sidewalk. A six lane avenue with glr down the center is a good idea, and since this glr/road is pathed that cars can drive while getting chased by the train, anything is possible, but that may or may not be done right now. The T-RAM has alot of work put into it already. There may be more details of stuff going on in the German thread.Only two pieces exist for the car/tram network at the moment, but there are alot more T-RAM configuration puzzle pieces cosmetic, and functional.
I should note after I posted that pic, Chris added allot more pieces with shared car/tram traffic. For this mod you won't be bothered with a RL situation of Passenger & Freight Trains taking for ever to get through automotive arteries. Trains will not be on this new network, unless you do some extra stuff to it like I did, but that is not what Chris intended. In real life though, you would not want to be interrupted crossing a road on foot with a mile long freight train when your trying to get to someplace important just across the road. Imagine living in a neighborhood with the Polar Express always using the street in front of your house. Welcome to the United States. Trams you know you don't need to wait that long when they cross your way, but trains on the other hand, oh boy. Roads are really like what I took a in-game picture of, in dense urban downtown areas and in the middle of residential corridors.
... you will be able to use this T-RAM to visually get heavy Freight Trains in the middle of the road, and recreate California, or Virgina. You just need to have a way for rail to connect directly to glr, train generators and poof! And Chris, I am sorry if that is not what you intended, but your awesome modding gave us an opportunity that couldn't be passed.
... I have questions about how stations are even possible for the (Tram-Road) networks.
With the cars and tram sharring the middle of the road, which now means we can fit cars and sidewalks 4 lanes on one tile, does this mean we are close to a seperate 4-lane road network?
