    • No, what I mean is I'm literally leaving for Japan early next year. This election (like every single one of them I can remember) will do nothing to change any of the biggest problems this country has.  Clinton is a shill for Wall Street and loves making money with the Chinese a lot more than she loves us.  Who knows what Trump will do, but electing a blowhard narcissist like him doesn't strike me as the smartest thing to do (although I seriously doubt that America will suddenly turn into a Nazi-style fascist state like the leftists all seem to think).  It does not matter how I vote because the vast majority of the voters in this country will not cross party lines nor will they consider a third, fourth, or fifth way of doing things.  Tens of millions of mostly idiots (go back and watch footage of the RNC/DNC, they're like cultists at best) will not change their minds and suddenly want to vote for what's right for this country, even at a local level.  Maybe even especially at a local level since that would mean that they would have to start paying attention to it.  They will root for their team to win, because it's little better than sports at this point, and with the way the corporate lobbyists continue to search for ways to screw us at every opportunity, the team in the White House doesn't matter because in the end they're not really the ones who are making the decisions.   At least in Japan nobody will hound me about my responsibility to vote because I won't be able to.  I won't have to listen to any guilt trips.  I won't be scolded for my "poor decisions" or my voter apathy resulting in less-than-palatable representation.  Because hey, I'M not the one who made this mess.  I'M not the one who voted these losers in.  It's not my fault that humanity (or is it just the American public?) continually produces and then selects the worst possible people to lead us (h/t to George Carlin).  It doesn't matter whether it's Bush or Obama or if it will be Clinton or Trump because in the end, they're all the same, we'll end up with the same, slowly swirling toilet water that is just waiting for that last big plunge to shove us the rest of the way down the drain.  You're all welcome to pretend like it matters, but it doesn't.  All those people, all the same, their kids all go to the same schools, they all spend their time in the same social circles, and they're all just as cut off from most Americans as ISIS cavemen are in the Middle Eastern deserts.
    • @Feindbold When I import they are way more visible, and the last pic is indeed the wireframes, I might not have been clear enough... I showed it to have an idea of how I make the textures if ever it is relevant to the problem...
    • I went looking and found this Wikipedia article specifically on the issue: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multilevel_streets_in_Chicago It seems it's several things, the main ones being a need to raise the clearance of street level bridge crossings along the Chicago River and a way to help traffic, as well as other necessities and the way things developed over time.
