Very impressive stuff, Haljackey.

I wish there was a set for putting rail in the median of the highway though, that would be amazing.

Don't really play SC4 anymore but I remember being able to use a very large stack interchange with my city before.

Here's something that I've been working on for a while, essentially the 'hub' of what will eventually be at least 3 or 4 cities.



And if people are struggling to make out some of that, here's a quick map of what it shows, light blue being motorways (highways), and the green being dual carriageways (avenues). Blue circles are full access interchanges, red are limited access.

Britain's Lost Motorway Network: My Flickr set of map scans NEW UPDATE! 30/03/2014 Four new scans to examine, featuring a longer M90 around Perth, M27's planned J5 (not the roundabout!) and J6, a late 70s lite version of the Liverpool Inner Motorway and was the A45's northern bypass of Cambridge planned as motorway? See for yourself!

Same Cloverstack interchange, now more complex.

Today I made a partial cloverleaf interchange in Simcity 4. It is based on Ontario's Ministry of Transportation "Parclo A-4" design. What do you think?



You see these interchange types all over the place in southern Ontario. Take this one on Highway 407 for instance.

I've built another interchange in Simcity 4, this time based on 403-407 ETR junction in Ontario.



Link for more info and HD playback: http://youtu.be/Hn8vhq88nKU

Here's what it looks like in Google Maps:


And here's what the zoomed out interchange looks like in Simcity 4.

Here's my first attempt at creating the Gardiner Expressway in downtown Toronto.

Can't quite get it all to fit due to fact there's a road under the expressway (double deck) and the lack of el-RHW-6 connections available in RHW 5.0.
-Though these issues could get fixed in later releases.







Anyways, hope you enjoyed the pics. You gotta try.

Here is an interchange I've created based on the Wellington Road/Highway 401 interchange in my hometown of London, Ontario.

Click for full size.

Pic of it in Google Maps:

And here's a few pictures I took of the junction.

Looking west:

And a zoom-in looking west with a nice camera:

Anyways hope you enjoyed it. It's the main junction in my hometown, so this otherwise bland parclo serves some importance.

Nice interchanges as always, Haljackey!

Um, regarding my interchange... See, this interchange actually made sense when it was built, but then the "city planner" lost control. I'd recommend GPS :p

This was to fix a bad traffic 2 roads were upgraded to highways Southland road and Island road/Highways 1. 7 interactions were removed changed to a interchange or made an over pass. Today it handles 10000 cars and trucks

A use I found the the Lateral European ramps

Been a while since anyone's posted here.

May as well start with a big image of a highway I recently upgraded.
