  1. Show Us What You're Working On

    One lane exit Two lane exit Three lane exit
  2. Show Us your: HIGHWAYS!!!

    Widening project. From Click for full size To Click for full size
  3. Sharing Plugins Folders - Discussion

    A thought occurred about this. Downloading custom content needs to be super easy these days. One 'starter pack' that contains, say the top 100 downloaded and/or rated files would be amazing for any new player. (Excluding stuff like the NAM of course which is continuously updated) I believe that this is the single most important issue facing our community right now; and an active, constructive discussion is a healthy way to keep this topic alive.

    I am working on a Interchange widening project Original configuration was overused Exit ramps widened to two lanes New dedicated eastbound exit lane Mainline widening (in progress) Further down the road From this To this Zoom out
  5. Show Us your: HIGHWAYS!!!

    Random highway cross section Click for full size The 2 lane flyover is empty here, but as soon as I stitched all this together traffic started to use it again. Ah well, traffic patterns change all the time in this game
  6. Show Us Your Interchanges - The Sequel

    Wow, very cool! ----- I have expanded this partial y interchange to allow some ramp connections to the road network.
  7. Show Us What You're Working On

    Nice Job Lynn X / Blank Blank / British Sausage! ----- Today I'm working on more road stuff, adding a couple connecting ramps to this junction
  8. Show us your Rush Hour / Traffic Jams

    It's always nice to see all ramps being used, especially on my largest parclo interchange
  9. Show us your city's detail/close-ups

    A few random zoom ins of a recently completed highway widening project

    Not entirely sure. What browser are you using? I use Chrome and Firefox to view this site and pics load just fine. Do you have any browser plugins that might stop some file extensions to show? Such as adblock? Maybe disable everything on Simtrop? ----- Anyways more widening work to show today. Broadbay South Complete. Had to fudge in a subpar exit to get the northbound lanes widened due to lack of foresight, but the rest got built to spec. Before Click for full size After Click for full size
  11. Show Us Your Interchanges - The Sequel

    Interchange changes over the years Original design Upgrade: Widening, 2 ramps expanded Upgrade: new partial interchange added Upgrade: further widening (the nearby rail line also got a small boost too )
  12. Show Us What You're Working On

    Broadening the Broadbay Highway Before Full size After Full size
  13. Show Us What You're Working On

    Broadbay Highway (N-S) and Halton Highway (E-W) interchange upgrades Original design Expansion 1: Expansion 2 (currently being worked on):
  14. Show Us What You're Working On

    Interchange rework continues. These highways operate near the game maximum (65535) in some places, and with the challenging traffic simulator I use, NAM low in a dense city, it's important to keep things flowing. Highway names for anyone who cares. Broadbay Highway runs north-south, Slayton Highway runs east-west (controlled access part starts west of this interchange) This is just the first phase of further projects that will add an extra travel lane or two on the mainlines. All work was able to completed within the existing right of way protected earlier.
  15. The Greater Terran Region

    Thanks, and sure, why not. This region has been sorta resurrected and now forms a part of a mega-region. Part of this integration work included building new connections from one region to the next, sometimes involving some extremely major rework. I posted this in various show us your threads a while back but I'll stitch it all together here. Major transformation to building a new connecting highway. This city was once entirely within the GTR, but after the region merging the eastern half changed hands. They did a lot to of expropriation to build this highway. Here's the new bridge, showing the route it will need to take to get through the developed part of the city. Now check out the transformation. + Video of the new bridge ----- Here's what it looks like today. Another project is underway to reconstruct more of that north-south highway from Maxis Highway to RHW. The Maxis Highway on the extreme east edge is slated to be completely demolished and not replaced. Capacity upgrades to the other will make up for that loss.
