Snaper, you added an excellent part to this collection of highways. Elegant and realistic. I like your style a lot!

mightygoose - great thing...  :thumbsup: I didn't investigate every path on this junction, but I'm sure it is absolutely functional...
Would you like to think about putting some signs here? As I remember, signs on British highways were clear and they leaded me very well  ;)

Welcome BlaZ, it's nice you placed your first post here in this thread. Show more!  :thumbsup:

Blaz;you made some great interchanges there... I suggest that you plan a carreer at Rijkswaterstaat, as with that many different connections you have the solutions to the traffic jams on hand!

Its not like anything gets built in our country anyways with all the environmental hippies.

Ill take some more screenshots tonight.



haha :) My interchanges arent so perfect it seems, will need to rebuild a bit of the big Y interchange.

If someone could make a custom interchange like this would be perfect.

Here some more from 2 of my cities.

Quite a simple connection here.


A traffic jam in a suburb.  Better instead of perfect pathfinding makes a huge difference here as with perfect i get no traffic jams at all.

Great highways, but most of them look too complicated for me...IMHO.  But great work every one.  They look very well thought out and it must have taken a very long time to lay them down.

Comments? With pleasure  :D

1. Try to soften transitions from flat terrain downhill to the slope (highway and avenue on the first pic)
2. This highway interchange (2nd pic) is difficult to use - it looks ugly very often (I don't know why...  %wrd). The same about the NAM transition from elevated highway to the ground one - especially from the direction as on your picture (top left corner).
2.1 Try to remove this transition and make your own (as on your first pic)
2.2 Don't make curves such close to this interchange - it will look more elegant

Don't be angry of my criticism - when I was a child, my parents used to say "there are more requirements for more talented people" - I didn't like it at all... :D)

Thanks for taking the time to critique my pictures- constructive criticism never hurt anyone.  :)

1- I must have spent an hour trying to do just that, I tried every trick in my book, such as trying to use the rail tool to soften the grade, but
nothing worked.  :(

2- Indeed, that interchange is very ugly, but such are many american freeways, and I'm going for realism, ugly or not.  ;) And yes, it's a rather
weird bug that occurs on that transition, but...
2.1- space becomes an issue here.

2.2- I agree, but I had little choice, space was once again an issue.  :( I'll see what I can fix though.

Once again, thanks for your comments, my friend.  :)
