Very nice indeed! Great transport system and I really love  the road signs you have used to label the various roads.

I was really impressed when I saw the interchange on the fourth pic in the "Show us your interchanges" thread, but the rest of the update is great too... Are you an engineer or city planner in real life?

the interchange in the second picture has a really clever design..i like it....i have one question, what is "roadgeekery" entirely? ..is it mainly the transit map/sign making part?

 Your city looks really nice so far! I especially loved that civics complex (first pic of part 2) and the large interchange between 24 and 424 (curves are nice to look at :P)

I noticed that your GLR ground texture looks very different from the standard one, and that the ground texture is shared by some of the roads as well. Which mod are you using to get this effect? It looks like it could be useful for some of my more rural cities.

Can't wait to see more!

elfoyd: Heh, thanks! Just three (well, now two) more updates

yunxiang: Thanks! I try to make the public areas look nice (and yes, until you get dizzy )
I use a sandstone GLR mod off of a Japanese website, don't recall exactly where though, sorry

avrelivs: Thanks! Roadgeekery is defined as... well, basically, its a main focus on roads, highways, etc and the associated stuff (ie signs).

naftxie: Heh, go right ahead! Do show me how it turns out sometime

pipcard: Well then this CJ and my other CJ is the right place for you

samerton: If you could rate yet And I'm flattered, thanks!

tigeria: Thanks! I'm using Diggis shingle pods, found on the LEX

packersfan: Oh, I've been flying under the radar I do get a decent amount of views and comments though...

blue lightning: Oh hello thar
