Looking good, there, Travis! I do agree that the interchange in the second picture is an ugly interchange, but like Ennedi pointed out, it's a tough one to use because it's often ugly looking. The first picture is my favorite, though. I love how you have the avenue crossing above the sunken railraods, then crossing beneath the highway. It looks fantastic. Great work, my friend!

Is there some tutorial or guide to building highways with soundwalls, or within trenches? Where do all these options come from?

[question to self:]And why didn't I register here years ago??? ()what()

There are a few tutorials around for making sunken highways. You have to download certain lots to make the highway walls.

To answer the question you asked yourself, SC4D hasn't been around for years, so it wasn't possible :D
Current project: Movies 14

You may have meant to search for Houdini. (result of searching for XiahouDun on SC4D)

@Danthe - great work with this highway!

The general view is excellent, slopes are carefully terraformed, sharp angles softened - very good!
The exit looks very good, it's not too big, light towers are very good addition here
Very good idea with the brownish rural stone wall, it blends very well with surrounding farmfields :thumbsup: I see the upper edge of this wall was carefully terraformed too ;)
Closeups are very nice too, I like the rail viaduct
My suggestion about the first picture: I think it would be better to:
- move the road viaduct at least one tile away from the highway curve
- make the viaduct at least on tile longer (make a transition a bit away from he highway)
- don't make a road curve just at the transition
Why? Because you have too many lines at various angles in one point, it damages the perspective and look a bit strange (I know it is caused by the nature of these pieces, but they were designed to save space, and you have enough space to do this viaduct a bit larger

But anyway everything is very good done &apls

Okay, I hope that teaser prepared you for this!

Here are a dozen different highway networks I have created in multiple cities.  They do their job quite well in moving traffic from one place to another.  Some of them are for local traffic, others long distance, and some include a bit of both.

Anyways, FYI, these are all RAW images taken from the game.  They are not "photoshopped" in any way.  The only editing done to them was to change their format from .png images to .jpeg format. 

Also note that they have been compressed significantly to comply with site regulations.  Below each image, there will be a link that will direct you to the uncompressed, full resolution image (11 images are 1440x900, the other is a "unique" 1280x1024 image). 

But enough of that.  Here they are, and I hope you enjoy them!

Oh... My... God...
Those multi highways look FANTASTIC!

They are so realistic!  Most likely the most realistic pics I've ever seen from SC4!  And I've been a member of ST for several years!
