Well... look what I have here! It's my first attempt at making a roadsign.

Refering to my Cities in Motion Tamriel Project (you can find a road map here or on page 34 of the map thread)

 

 

Motorway signs (always using a blue backdrop; destinations that are reached using motorways are shown on a blue backdrop). It is customary to name highways with a A name, but also with their name (historical or not : for instance the A82 is the Transniben Turnpike). Distance is always in km; Cyrodiil doesn't use Imperial units.

B-Roads (Federal Network) are roads of national and local importance, that are not up to Motorway standards. Unlike England, both networks are fairly consistent on their own. B-Road signs are yellow; destinations reachable by trunk roads are also shown on yellow on other signs. Here is a junction sign on B78 (which is in the German/Argonian speaking part of Cyrodiil - the reason why German represents Argonian is to reflect possible linguistic trends across Cyrodiil and to highlights the dissociation between any real-life culture and the TES universe. Oh, yes, I'm a linguist. :) )

C-Roads are local roads. They are named per Land/Province, and within each the first digit refers to a specific Prefecture (for instance, C113 can refer to a road in the Cropsford Prefecture, but also in the Applewatch Prefecture) but most of the time they are left unsigned. There are also D categories (managed on a county basis, so the administrative division under Prefecture) and U roads, which stand for Unsigned. There are also special F roads, which are forest treks carrying vehicular traffic, and W roads, which are alternative disruption routes; all these routes are shown on a white backdrop.

City entry signs are typically German ;) they are always on a yellow backdrop. The signs will feature the town's name, as well as the county it is part of (or the Local Authority, for rural counties, District, for counties in the Prefectures of Aleshire, Westside or Molesey, or Free Independant City, for those consolidated city-county entities.) They also feature the name of the Prefecture, but not that of the Province. They may or may not also be signed with the number of the road they are placed on. Here are Leadworth (typical sign), Cropsford (not signed), and Border Watch (bilingual, as it is in Regierungsbezirk Dunkelforst). (Note how Border Watch's sign only features one rectangle, a specific norm of the Lower Nibenay)

I'd like to use this one for the Miami Region I downloaded from the STEX. Hopefully, I can get a feel for using gmax/SC4 BAT.

It definately looks cool! I like the font and the tropical feel it brings with that uncommon hue of green. Very nice.

Before I came across this thread, I had never heard the term 'roadgeek' before. I've spent my entire life not knowing there was actually a term for it and other people like me! I just downloaded Inkscape and I'm going to make a few signs right now. I'll come back and post them by the end of the day to see if they're any good :D

 

EDIT: Here they are:

13944454394_291f6a12e4_o.png

There isn't a lot of information on them since these are just two random city names I came up with on the fly (just got a new PC and don't have any decent cities in-game yet). I might take some real life signs and convert them but meh. I really enjoyed making these and definitely want to make some more. I'd love to put these in-game but I honestly have no clue how. Maybe someday if I get around to it.

 

So what do you guys think?

Here are some that I created for my CJ:

 

County Routes (US MUTCD Standard):

State Routes (1-2 and 3 digit; my creation):

 

004-08_SR2.png     004-09_SR3.png

 

Federal Routes (1-2 and 3 digit; based on the US interstate shield):

 

004-10_FR2.png     004-11_FR3.png

 

And finally National Highway Routes (basically an Interstate/motorway) (1-2 and 3 digit; my creation):

For a first attempt with InkScape, this is pretty good work. A few tips:

- The arrows on the gantry signs look somehow not in the style of the rest of the arrows. I'd suggest to make them more fat or use other arrow styles altogether.
- I'd suggest to use a more desaturated shade of red.

Read the Readme or drown in bugs and glitches, the choice is yours...

How's this?

You're definitely right about the arrows. These look a lot better.

 

My main region (Koher Soteto) is coming along so I might come back in a few days with some more complex signs.
