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.

Oh boy, functional underground cities ;D

The idea of expanding our cities downwards when land is at premium, moving huge transportation systems underground to make some room at the ground level, and even build entire subterranean cities, has been around since a long time and it's not going to leave us anytime soon, from this 1925 prediction...



...to the Alice City proposed for Tokyo in 1989...



...to the Earthscraper proposed in 2011 (I think) for Mexico.



Mix this new discovery with the underground buildings already made for the game, like these...





...and we'll have actual underground cities with actual subterranean commute. Endless possibilities  &dance

I know it's too soon, but I have some questions. Apart from cars, does this support bus and freight truck as well? Can pedestrians use the flexible underground roads too? Can we cross those roads to build underground intersections? What will happen if we cross those roads with actual subways? Will they interfere with them? Can we use this technology to build flexible underground railroads too? If yes, we could build an underground network of freight railroads right under our heavy industries!

Keep it up and never stop pushing the limits, folks  :thumbsup: :bnn:

Currently I believe only RHW-2 and MIS are supported, with RHW-4 in progress.

Those underground buildings are from here, right? For the life of me I can't figure out how I first found that page... Where was the original link?
