By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings?

Yes. I would recommend a small texture (64x64 or 128x188) and a low tri count (below 100).

The pillar looks great!

Thanks for the info.

Here we go, fixed the gap where the pillar meets the bigger darker concrete pillar., and added a bit of a shadow there.

Also the LOD is done I think, haven't tested ingame yet. Need to go to sleep now.

Wow looks great! Feels weird to see so much detail on a pillar since I'm used to really plain ones (aren't we all):P Can't wait to see what else you're going to make!

I have use for these, I'll be testing them as soon as my European ISP connects my PC back to the world.

I think enough time has passed and I have a question so I can bump the thread.

So I'd like to create a ramp like this:

But the texture doesn't follow the road direction:

Can it be fixed somehow, or would a mod to change the texture direction with a click be possible?

I'm sure that a mod would be possible, but who will create it? Maybe the NExt team knows why that happens and how it can be fixed.

With some finnicking and rebuilding, it's possible to make it all face the same direction, it seems there is some other property of a segment that says what direction the road was drawn in (independent from the oneway road direction). I'm not a modder though.

Looks pretty awesome, the tiling breaks a bit, but at least it's in the same direction. Don't mind the vibrant dev textures on the ramp.

This is what happens if you draw all in the same direction using only one segment drawing (less than 12 units each drawing).

Wow! Those pillars are awesome! I love the detail and textures. Thumbs up. :thumb:

Thanks!

Next the 6cell over-canal stack for 3lane highways (no japan road textures on those roads yet though)

Would be nice if anybody could download and test them and show me how it looks in your city, with your settings and luts etc.

The attachment includes the two recent stacks.

Is it common in Japan that highways are build over canals? Interesting idea

I'm not sure if it's common but they exist, i saw them on street view and thought it looked really cool.

Here are some examples I found in Tokyo:

Update: very WIP but i think you can figure out what it will be:

Real estate in Japan is pretty tight, especially in Downtown Tokyo.  I can affirm with driving on some of the expressways there are part going over some of the older canals.  Zoning laws are not in favor towards optimal highway builds for engineers there.  However, the more modern approach these days for Japanese is tunnelling.

Also, glad to see elevated ETC toll booths.

Great work on those models and textures! It's nice to see that Roads United is getting some attention from parts of the world other than the US :P

how did you put that toolbooth on a elevated road, isnit?

It's just a floating building, you actually put it "on" a road on the ground 1cell gap away from the elevated road.

ok, what mod is this search tool?

Okay, I think I assume too much. Added explanation and links to the description:

To access in-game, use search box mod, search for "toll": 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=540758804

Requires anarchy to place: (Sharp Junction Angles ctrl+A) 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=553184329

For 3lane one way use network extensions: 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=478820060

I recommend not connecting the middle lane with traffic manager: 
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=583429740

Place 1cell away beside a 12m/24m high 4cell piece of 3lane one way road. 
Use Traffic manager lane connector and don't connect the middle lane. 

 

Update: I'm trying to make a ground/0m version, but the stuff below 0 gets that building base texture, even on a ground level forced elevated road, any way to disable that?

      Hi everybody,
      as I am starting to experimenting with asset creation (I am using Blender), I start this topic to share projects and problems.
      My first big issue is about underground textures. I have read some old posts about this topic, but I am still unsure I can apply them in my case. I am trying to get something like in the attached figure (side view). The building should "come out" of the sloped terrain. I can already get this effect easily by using one of the standard building templates, but of course textures aren't applied below the road level. If I use the "Japanese Garden" template as I read in some posts, I just get a mess, because the building becomes terrain conforming and the "underground" part does not show up at all (I have tried with the "Flatten Terrain" flag both on and off). Can anyone suggest a solution or a working asset of this kind which I might reverse engineer? I guess ModTools will be required, but I am new to it. Thank you very much!
      By the way, is it allowed to share also maps in this section or is it reserved to mods and assets?

      Hello everyone. This will be my custom content showcase and workshop thread. In all the years I been a member here, I never uploaded any content but enjoying great work by other members. I take this opportunity to say Thank You to all content makers for making our city building experience so enjoyable. I feel that making content is overdue for me and I want to give back to the community. I have some buildings and trees that I will be showing in upcoming updates to this thread. I will also be asking for advice and help.

      Hey all, first I wanted to say thank you for all the time and effort you've put into making this game amazing. I've enjoyed many hours with your creations and wanted to start giving back to the community. I began making assets a month or two ago when my workload got slower than normal, and now I can't get enough of it
      I've mostly been working on smaller assets because I just started modeling in 3D two months ago, so everything is still pretty new. Thank you so much @Ronyx69 for making your videos available. I learned a lot from watching them
      Today I have a questions about illumination maps, my Rusty Warehouse 2 seems to have the windows illuminated all the time, and I don't know how to fix it:

       
      This is my illumination map: 

       
      My other question for today, which I'm thinking I know the answer to, is: Can a single asset be both growable and rico? And if not, is the preferred method of differentiation to have 2 separate assets in the workshop? Or two .crp files in the same asset?

      So I figured I might as well make a topic here, as this is most likely not gonna be the last time I ask for you guys' oppinion.  If I remember, I'll post WIP and releases of my buildings here.
      My current project is a bus depot that fits the european theme and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - but I've ended up with two sizes of it and I just can't decide which I like the best and could see myself using both. So I'd love some feedback - which you prefer or if it makes sense to upload both of them.
      The small one is about the same size as the default one and has the same stats. The large one has slightly higher stats, but as depots can spawn infinite busses there's no benefit to the bigger one. I purely made it this large as the ones I took inspiration from were this size or bigger.
      Picture time!

      As expected, my save failed to load. What's the protocol here? Should I disable all mods and try to add them back one-by-one?
       
      Let's help each other out by listing out mods that have been broken and should definitely be disabled. Who will go first?
