Ryan (burgsabre87):  Those textures are looking awesome as always!  There's only one thing I might change with the diagonals with the yellow striping in the center.  I'd maybe consider doing a dual-solid line or a left turn lane (where applicable) at the diagonal intersections.  Otherwise, they are truly fantastic.

Kevin (BigSlark):  That's an interesting idea--something we haven't really talked about, but it could make a nice addition.

Pat (patfirefghtr): Well, we still have a fairly long way to go with the TLA.  It's still quite far from Beta status.  I should be able to pick up the pace when RL calms down.

I did, however, manage to finally get this TLR-3 texture I've had sitting around for the past 2 months into the game.  It's suffering from a bit of a tiling issue at the moment, but this should give you a better idea.

I could supply the one I'm using for my RHW pieces with tweaked colors. ;)

Alex and Ryan,

Last night my roommates and I were up to no good (which means we had a craving for Taco Bell at 3 a.m.), and we did a few miles on the TLA's on Jackson, MS. What I noticed is that state-maintained TLA's have reflectors whereas city and county maintained ones do not. I think a survey would be in order from other NWM fans to see what's common in their neck of the woods in order to figure out if reflectors are the norm or an exception with TLA's.

Just my two cents.

Cheers,
Kevin

PS-Damn, I'm good at this in the morning!

hey BS: im thinking that reflectors are found in random cities....where i lived in houston for 3 years their streets had reflectors and even the striping were made with nothing but reflectors....in nashville where i live now only the interstates only have them, when i was in seattle for a week last month they have it everywhere....so im guess its just a matter of where u live that has them on the roads.

burgsabre87: Those textures are fantastic, my friend! Great job!

Alex (Tarkus): The TLA-3s are looking good! I don't see any "tiling issues," but I won't lie to you--I wouldn't know a tiling issue if it slapped me in the face. Great work, as always!

From what I've seen, the NYS DOT doesn't do reflectors on our TLA's.

Alex,

I had to inspect that photo in photoshop to find the tiling!

Keep up the good work!

The TLR-3 is wonderful, Tarkus.

Not sure which I'm looking forward to most:  the next RHW, or this...

Oh cool! More important (to me) than the RHW (until the RHW has smooth curves(

This will look great in the industry based city i plan!
The most astounding and unique aspect of the human race is our fervent application of our ingenuity to kill each other, thus completely defying the near-universally proven fact that the ultimate goal of a member of a species is to ensure the survival of the species.

this is amazing! i can harldy wait. im goign to be stuck to y computer screen when this comes out.

and speaking of rhw are all of these pieces going to be interchangeable with rhw?
and are we still going to have avenue?
and a request to your intersections: since oyu have enough space do you think you could put 2 left turn lanes and a right turn lane in for tl7 and 6?


ps did anyone notice the campus ( spelling boulevarde?) has more lanes than the highwya :p
i think it would be the only thing that has to decrease its size to become a higway :)

Well, I've been a little quiet on this front, but there's been a lot of "behind-the-scenes" work.  I haven't had much to show, but I should have plenty of interesting development soon.

In the meanwhile, here's a look at a narrower Avenue.  An AVE-2, to be precise.  Of course, even beyond the fact that it's actually built off of a Road puzzle drag, there's more than meets the eye . . .  or at least, there will be. ;)

Amazing work Alex. Makes me wonder, how many more new networks have you made that you've neglected to tell us about?  :D

I'll be looking forward to more.  :thumbsup:
