You are definitely either much smarter or far more patient than me... All I can say is WOW!

Now I just HAVE to make something similar in SimCity 4... as soon as the next version of the Real Highway Mod comes out!

wow what a surprise. I've been drawing interchanges, connections of cities, infrastructure and fake road maps from about 10-13 years. I thought I was a freak but there are a lot of freaks like me here greetings my friends

me too!

well i used to as a kid. I used to get rolls of newspaper (blank of course) stretch it out for 10-15 feet (3-5 metres) and draw roads, communities, etc. Didn't really go outside of roads, like i drew a few subdivisions, and that was it. Maybe I can get a picture of one in a few days, and post it.

I can't guarantee anything.. I haven't done squat since i was 13 or so (I'm almost 20 now)

BUT. I'm in transportation engineering program for school (yes one exists) Here's what I'll learn about.

# Learn about transportation networks, public transportation systems and their role in society
# Develop the planning skills needed to make decisions about present and future transportation needs
# Apply current standards and practices to design roadways, intersections and facilities with safety as a key ingredient
# Acquire surveying, CAD, plan reading and visualization skills needed to create today's modern infrastructure
# Explore traffic data collection methods, traffic control devices and management strategies
# Analyze traffic operations, capacity and level of service on streets and highways
# Affiliations include the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT), Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE)

I'm a first year.. but I LOVE IT!

well, i think that a lot of us did this. i also used to draw roads on large sheets of paper (app. same size as you), but those roads were as large so i could play with cars on them, so 2 way road was about 10 cm wide. some of my friends used to do it too, and they were not mad about road infrastructure and roads (i was mad about it since i was a kid!). i had at least 10 different sheets with roads. in later period of doing it the things little went out of control because i started to do bridges, tunnels, "mountain" railroads (mountains were the books ) and my mum went crazy because whole floor was covered with that . my dad found it creative and interesting, but he wasn't allowd to praise it in front of mum of course, i also tit it in the age of some 8-12 years.

The only thing I don't like about it is the loop ramps (too old). Gotta go with flyovers!

You guys made to start drawing this sh*t too.

I was allways into interchanges....and so....why the hell not to draw some then....

------------------

So yesterday...while studying for my exam in applied mechanics....i decided to take a brake and draw the south entrance to Zagreb, Croatia.

Lučko interchange:

This seems to be a common thread among those whom frequent this part of the SSC forvms (pleading 'guilty').



In another mainly North American road-related forvm that I follow, we call these 'Amish Sim-Cities' - made without any of those newfangled computer contraptions.
(For those not aware, there are many pockets of Amish people here in the USA - followers of one of several related Mennonite sects whom live very simple lives, eschew anything flashy and/or more modern than horse-drawn wagons and seldom even use electricity or indoor plumbing - essentially a pre-20th century lifestyle. They are well regarded as superb farmers and their craft and food products are very popular throughout the USA.)

A little redesign of turning an congested traffic-light intersection into a grade-seperated free flow intersection.

Interesting...That's almost exactly the same solution chosen for the upgrade of DN1 going through the northern parts of Bucharest (only the roundabout is on the lower level). That road goes to the mountains and it's the most congested in Romania.

Well, i drawed this to show grade-separated intersections doesn't have to take up a lot of land. In this case, no buildings should have to be torn down. The 3-lane roundabout doesn't really fits with the exit lanes from the roundabout.
