A Sunday Drive

Hey Everyone!

Today we'll take a short drive down M40, the main Motorway through the southern region of the Lehigh Valley, servicing Cumberland form the East and Southwest.

We'll start out from the East, headed westbound towards South Cumberland. Here, M40 winds its way over a ridge and down into the Lehigh Valley:

Here is the Exit for South Cumberland. It is almost directly south of Center City, but since it is a small interchange, most traffic to the center is rerouted via Avenues and other motorways.

If we took this exit, we would arrive at the Cumberland Rail Yards:

FYI, this is my first EVER mosaic!

But we continue on, through South Side Cumberland, where M40 forms the southern border of the City:

We Exit Here, an interchange that will take us through South-West Cumberland to the West Cumberland Expressway. Traffic Approaching from the Southwest to Center City is routed this way.

I was just thinking, you might like this modd:

it changes the rail textures to suit wealth level, but I took out all of the textures except grass (it might fit in better and not be so jagged on diagonals)

Another great update! The setting is so green and lush! The highway interchange is amazing, too, although there's a bit of scenic waterfront that's eaten up by the ramp ;) .

I love the terrain textures and the highways, your flora is amazing too. Maybe add some of these to it though: http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/files/file/17152-sfbt-mayor-mode-tree-mod/ You'll get taller trees.
