 How do i solve traffic Problems in cities skylines? Such as massive traffic jams on the higwhay exit?

Lower the volume of traffic or increase the number of lanes to increase it's capacity. Sometimes that will necessitate altering larger parts of your road networks, for example adding a new interchange to make a difference.

Doesn't really change things. The basic problem is too many cars/other traffic needing to use it. So if you can't increase capacity of the lanes, you'll need alternate routes to increase it. That can also include competing public transport, such as Rail, Metro or Buses that covers the route. Although if the bulk of the traffic is related to shipping goods or other services, public transport won't help much.

yes the industries are the Problem.

There aren't really a lot of options if that is the case.

Step 1 try to make sure the industries are fed from "hubs", which makes cargo transportation more efficient. Set up a Freight/Container rail terminal on the outskirts of your industrial areas. Have another one that feeds into the city itself where your commercial shops are most dense. That way the bulk of the goods can be transported by rail. Of course the actual goods will still need to use road transport between the hub and the final destination/pickup points. So it's imperative that the road links between Industry and the hub are well optimised. Similar storey for the hub for goods into shops. Ideally these hubs should be placed well clear of major commuter routes to prevent mixing of commuter traffic and cargo. If you get that right, you'll find things run a lot smoother.

Another important tip, the road that goes to the freight terminal should be one-way only. Allowing for maximum efficiency for traffic entering/leaving the terminal.

Some more info is here and here (Steam forums). Or perhaps a tutorial video is more useful?

i had a city with 86k inhabitants, the traffic on the highway was extreme. but not in the city, only in the industrial zone and on the highway.

So look at the information I linked too and you should be able to fix it. Since you can't possibly have spent as long doing that as I took to post the info in the first place, that's your starting point. I can't help further, train to catch.

      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!

      I found a couple posts about building roads up some hills, but I couldn't find them again. I followed the "how to grow a gentle slope" but that is on a flat land.
      What I want to find is how to climb a hill with roads upwards. I tried terraforming with RR but that just flatens the terrain, and NOT climb up a hill. I won't go for the 45 degrees climb that Maxis allows, they look ridiculous. Any ideas ?

      This thread will focus on improving and revamping the Transport Lines Manager mod, as well as potentially adding features from IPT and/or unique new features if possible.
      Transport Lines Manager Reborn 6.0.1 now in the workshop.
      Bugs as of 6.0.1:
      Renamed depots are not working in the TLM listing and in depot details windows. Bus stations and terminals are wrongly listed as depots. Not show cable car stations on linear map as near transport. Ticket price changes not being implemented. Sort lines by colour not working. OP is below:
      The creator of IPT hasn't been online in over 5 months, and the creator of TLM hasn't been online in nearly 1 month. Mass Transit DLC is coming out in a few weeks, and I don't know how either of these mods will fare with changes being brought to the transit system.
      Is anyone in touch with either of these authors? I would especially hate to see TLM go to the dustbin of modding history considering how many options and useful configurations it provides (plus the aesthetics!) such as changing frequency depending on time of day (such a no-brainer), and IPT has excellent debunching. Now that these two mods are nearly incompatible, and with the DLC coming out soon potentially rendering both useless, something must be done. They're far too valuable to go to waste.
      If we can't get the authors to update their mods or publish their code for others to carry it forward, can we all maybe pitch in and create an entirely new mod from scratch? Is someone working on this already? Even with the improvements being brought with the free upgrade/DLC, I feel TLM/IPT features will still be vital to many player's C:S experience. What do y'all think?
