Part 2 to my first video, with a better view of how the overpass and underpass tools work. Enjoy!

This is mostly the cursor moving around and getting better vantage points.  Roads have already been built and none are built onscreen until halfway through the video.  There is no narration (nor captions) about what is being done, so the viewer doesn't know what is being demonstrated aside from watching roads get built.  No offense, but it isn't very informative or useful.

 

To be fair I haven't watched part one yet.

    Well, that is true, but mainly it was just me just fiddling and looking for a good spot. Captions are needed, I agree, though.

     

    And part one isn't much better, if you're talking about this sort of thing.

    I'm sure the person taking the video doesn't want to be removed from the testing group, so they have taken measures to keep themselves anonymous. This is definitely update 7, as you can see the M and N commands added to his road menu. I think just showing the overpasses was pretty cool. I'm not sure if he watched the video from @MaxisGuillaume, because towards the end he seemed to be having trouble with making tunnels, but didn't know that you need to have a connection point? At least, that's how I understood the tool to work. 

     

    Either way, I'm super excited about this tool, and I appreciate the video. I'd like to see more cities with it. :D
