    Hi!

    In real cities, roads are often single or dual laned until it reaches an intersection, where there are often turn lanes. I like to widen my road to small avenue from a road or an avenue to an expressway, but it annoys me that pedestrian crossing always make the transitions look fugly and unrealistic. Is there anyone who would be interested in making a mod to adress this? Please see the pictures below to get a clearer idea of what I'm talking about :)

    The first picture shows the various transitions that could work well and the second picture shows how a street could look like (without the crossings). So it's basically just a simple puzzle piece to fit in between the two road types to remove the crossings. This way you could also zone a bigger size road then easily build higher capacity junctions while still using smaller roads to carry your traffic.

    I hope somebody is interested in something like this, cheers!

    That would solve my problem, but I would like to keep crossing at junctions... There is no mod removing only the crossings between two roads? I worked some magic in paint and made this 'artist rendering' of what it would like:

    thats not possible sorry
    the game takes a crossing between two road-types as a "normal" crossing
    so you can have all or nothing, but not 50% :p

    I've tried something that may help to turn things around. This is a RHM Washington map that enables the blending of road textures, I used the RHM two opposing lanes as seen below, which changes in the intersection. Well check the pics hope they help a bit.

    Wow that's grat, can't believe I didn't think of that! :) Will go great in one of my current projects. Did some expirementing with the widening mod and US roads, but the transition between normal avenues and turn lanes always came out too ugly. This however looks awesome.

    Too bad the clock has turned to the wrong side of midnight to give this a go :p
