Diagonal road tiles?
« on: April 03, 2020, 07:07:36 AM »
Hi,
I'm looking for a ghosted 1x1 diagonal road cutout, to hide the jagged edges when building stepped diagonal roads; similar to the ones included Discrepancy's Jetty and Trade Merchants mods, but with vanilla road textures. If someone knows of such a mod already existing and could point me to it, that would be great.

Hi @svkaamos !
It will not work very well. The road edge blends into the ground and will leave a seam
between itself and a ghosted piece.

@svkaamos
I made a half tile with road texture.
As you can see in the picture - the vanilla road does not stretch out to fill the tile.
It leaves a gap. Any 'road' you put beside it will have that gap visible.
It is not possible unless you make a completely new road that fills the tile.
The result would be very sharp edges. Not nice. I will not get into that.

@svkaamos

colonial charter and mega mod have diagonal tiles and - to make it work correctly - straight tiles.

Picture 1 - Made normal roads and put diagonal tiles - looks ugly



Picture 2 - Made a normal road, put diagonal tiles and additonally put straight tiles above the road. Tadaa!

I'm going to have to try this out. Are the diagonal tiles the ones that are in the deco, not your regular road tab?

@banishedsanni - Thanks, this was exactly what I was looking for. I think the example at the top actually looks kind of neat, but maybe that's just me...
