At last, it's complete!
This mod will completely revamp the road US textures of the game, giving them a much more realistic dark asphalt look, as if they were newly paved. This mod also adds the following new roads:
Very Large Expressway (8 lane version of expressway, upgradable to one way 8 lane road) By Pharmist
Very Large Avenue (6 Lane version of large avenue, upgradable Very Large Expressway) By Pharmist
AVE-2 (avenue with 1 lane on each side, can also be upgraded to AVE-3, and 3 lane one way road) By Mrtnrln
TLA-5 (4 lane avenue with turning lane in the middle) By Mrtnrln
The Above roads were not made by me, I just retextured them, and their one-way upgrades. Here are the full list of features for this mod:
- Several new roads for the game (AVE-6, AVE-8, AVE-2, and TLA-5, all upgadable to 3 lane, and 8 lane one way roads)
- Complete retexturing of all US Road textures, including highways, and interchanges (Not RHM)
- Roundabouts have also been retextured
-Sidewalks have also been retextured, for a much more realistic look, including the grassy road.
-The icons in the game were updated/changed to match the new texture set.
This is for the dark textures, I will add the light asphalt textures in a separate mod later on.

* Please remove the following mods after installing:
Please ensure that the above mods are removed prior to loading up the game. It is not necessary to have those mods installed as they have already been integrated into this mod. They must be removed or else the new textures won't work properly on them.
I'd also like to give credit to:
Pharmist & Mrtnlrn for the roads
Okeanos for the pak tools
v1.1 (June 14, 2012 8:00 EST) Yellow median lines now appear all the time in the two lane roads.
v1.2(June 16, 2012 11:00 EST) Fixes missing 4 lane one-way road textures.
Unfortunately, the one-way road textures will have the yellow line in between:
This will be a temporary fix until I can find a way to remove it.
And special thanks to:
For helping me in the support thread, thanks to you guys, I was able to make this mod for all of you to enjoy!
Note: Photos of the new roads textures are missing from the third party file hosting site. If anyone has proper road texture images please let us know. -- IcyHot
- Installation Pre-requiste(s):
It's not long before we will be moving. The new hosting has been setup and the next thing to be done is to change the DNS. When it's changed it may take between 24 to 48 hours to take effect. During this time XLN will be closed so it can be backed up. When the new DNS takes effect, you will see a basic page with a message regarding the move. Note: It may take up to two weeks to get XLN up and running again.Dismiss Notice
