Nice work, Billy--something that I don't think original SAM devs jplumbley or Diggis would have imagined in their wildest dreams!

A little further viaduct work here.

Those diagonals don't sound like much, but they're a real game changer. If we had diagonal height transitions, I could do diagonal interchanges fairly easily. No more relying on awkward orthogonal interchanges.

I'm guessing this stability is the focus for NAM 38?

And the SAM stuff will come in handy too. I guess it doing really well in the polls did have an influence...

We will. :thumbsup:

Lots of stability and gap-filling.  You'll be seeing a lot of that with future NAM releases, particularly on my end.

And the SAM stuff will come in handy too. I guess it doing really well in the polls did have an influence...

We've also (re-)gained a dev team member who is quite interested in SAM content.  That's very good news for all the SAM enthusiasts out there.

And in case anyone thought we were kidding around about the whole "shorter release cycle" thing . . . this just went to the NAM Associates for internal testing.

I smell a NAM release as either a Thanksgiving or Christmas present! Being able to present the first alpha build of the next version a meager month after the previous release is an amazing achievement! It would seem that the NAM development cycle will rapidly catch up in its usual schedule.

That's an unfixable game limitation.

It can be an advantage though.  Just think of it... a new form of RCI access without conventional road frontage.  It will also boost the underground city scene a lot, with the potential for buildings to have underground entrances.
Find my power line BAT thread here.
Check out the Noro Cooperative.  What are you waiting for?  It even has electricity.
Want more? Try here.  For even more electrical goodies, look here.
Here are some rural power lines.

I've found something akin, when using FLUPs to put roads underground, the cars can still park on the bordering lots, as if they had underground accesses

Is freight able to use these new FLUPs? Does that mean can have heavy rail underground more easily than U-rail?

A few limitations here, but... Draggable tunnels are now a reality! Now we can have actual RHW tunnels!
