What's the best way to get out of an RHW-8C?

I have an RHW-8C from a neighbor, I'd like to either grow it out into an 8S, or into a 10C. But I can't seem to find either of these puzzle pieces. I do see a 8C to 6C onnection, but I want to get bigger, not smaller. Even tried to see if there was a 10C entrance, so I could go from a 8C to a 10C and have an entrance piece come into the 10C, but I didn't notice one of those either.

Cheers

There are plans for an RHW-10C, as well as an RHW-12S (and there's actually been some work done on them), but they won't be in the next release (NAM 31), mainly as they will require a lot of different transitions and on/offramp pieces to be made.

Right now, if you wanted to widen out from an RHW-8C to get to the 10S, you'd have to use 4 different transitions to accomplish it, narrowing the highway briefly in the process (8C→6C, 6C→6S, 6S→8S, 8S→10S). Needless to say, that's pretty cumbersome and defeats a lot of the purpose. Some more direct transitions (8S→8C, for instance) would help, but most of the transition work we're doing at present is between different heights of networks, as opposed to different widths, so you might not see those sorts of transitions until the same time that the 10C becomes available.

If you're looking to have an 8-lane highway that transitions to 10, the 8S is a more complete option at the moment, as it's in the middle of a chain of S-type networks, where as the 8C is the end of the road for C-types right now.

  • Thanks Tarkus. Sounds like an 8S is a nice "baseline" highway to go from. Then you can split here, grow there, shrink there , etc etc yada yada :)

    Nice to hear the puzzle pieces are growing...
