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!

  • 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.

    something wrong with the middle if you dont have a elevated road on it you can watch throught it.

    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:

    https://www.google.lv/maps/@35.682218,139.7798171,3a,75y,26.21h,91.56t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sZZ5tB1oxbVEYg-SeHa6cDw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

    https://www.google.lv/maps/@35.6918817,139.7915484,3a,75y,98h,90.56t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sG3JbW0BRdVw9MccMDgpl2w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

    https://www.google.lv/maps/@35.6553313,139.7375968,3a,75y,187.82h,100.14t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sPtAL_Jvm5y-cMwzYS7JR4A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

     

    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.

    My first asset is out :D

    I don't understand any Japanese so I don't guarantee the signs make sense, although i ripped them directly from IRL Tokyo toll booths.

    Download 24m version

    Download 12m version

    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?
