The values of every country are metric... except for USA and the UK.

mexico, latin america, europe, asia, africa and oceania (australia, new zeland, tazmania...) are in metric system (Km/h for example)

That looks great there, Andreas! As they are puzzle-pieces, they can use tab-rings aswell, I assume/hope.  %wrd

As warrior said, that's possible, yes. :) A minor drawback, though: You have to be very careful next to transit enabled lots, such as stations, because once you hover the puzzle piece over the station, the game will crash.

wow :o
did not expect australiana to be thought of so soon in this project. i like it.
so it's probbly possible to make road textures that have cross walks/ect -o yeah... puzzle pieces, forgot about that.

or just make draggable ped mall and have crosswalks as intersections...

Yours truly would like to help ;D as a member of the STRU, I think it is important to have proper highway signs in SimCity.  I would gladly help with any sign modelling.  I also have a few tricks in hand (especially with alpha maps and custom-shaped signs...  ;D interstate sign anyone?)

Tarkus dude, you have basically made my wishes complete with this new mod that you are working on. I do know that pilotdayrl said that he will help with other road signs other than speed limit, but would it be possible to have different signs on the same road like when you cross into another state or county or entering a city or a populated area, or have tow signs on the same puzzle piece but on the opposite side of the other sign facing the other direction? I will look forward to this new mod when it comes out whenever it is released. Take your time. :thumbsup: &apls &idea :) JKB

One small request, would a RHD version of the Australian signs be possible? Just that EA gave us a RHD game here in Australia...  ::)

The only annoying thing about that is that all of the props show up on the wrong side of the road...  :angrymore:

LOL, why didn't I see this thread sooner?  Its a great idea!

I do use signs from time to time in my cities where I have room for some eyecandy.  However, getting them to take up a tile beside the road/rail/highway can really mess up the way I make the route all-together!

Anyways, this sounds interesting.  I will keep an eye here.

Best,

The signs in Spain (which I went to for spring break) and the UK (which i just looked at in the link in tolsome's last post) look remarkably similar.  Also, i didn't know that the UK uses miles like the US instead of kilometers like everyone else...

And since this is a puzzle piece mod, i REALLY like this, because i don't like the extra sidewalk that shows in rural areas if this was a lot (also i have Jeronij's sidewalk mod, so that may create discrepancies, especially in highw-wealth areas which have a red brick sidewalk  in that mod)
My days here are numbered. It's been great and I've had a lot of fun, but I've moved on to bigger and better things.

Not everyone else ...

Barbados, Burma, Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Muscat, Oman, Naura, Sierra Leone, Southern Yemen, Tonga and Trinidad do not use the metric system (this information is a few months old, so may have changed).
