Midistland OUTRAGEOUS trunk road system

Posted by bhj867 on 23 October 2017 in English (English)

I am fixing this. I don't know who did it. But I am going to make this look like a much nicer city. This is TRUNK ROAD OVERLOAD. No No No No No No No. Wont delete anything, but a simple change in road type will make this look like a much more appealing location. As a senior editor I am making an executive decision on this one. Just for the sake of visual appeal of the overall map.

This Mess

Location: Breassau Downtown Link, Breassau, Midistland

I enjoy downgrading motorways to footpaths in abandoned territories. Something of the "avenging angel" in my personality.

Have fun, I fully support.

Now isn't THIS MUCH BETTER??????? It's a very LARGE city, but much more appropriate in terms of Motorway-Trunk-Primary-Secondary balance. All it needs now is proper land usage, buildings, and further improvements.

This city is a monstrosity, and will take MANY people to edit it properly.

At least it doesn't look like so much of a disaster anymore.

HAHA Luciano, I am about to do my own version of vandalism soon. "Improvement vandalism" lol. They keep messing with Pretany, I am going to start messing with them, but in a much more constructive way. KIDDING.

@bhj867: I've got a theory for vandalisms in Pretany - newbies are apparently attracted to the dense place= tags (because in Pretany there are a lot of those, newbies see that as "there is a lot of place names here. It must be a heavily edited area" and they just start mapping there).

I think so. My biggest mistake with my country is going the United States population standard route (Because I am American): Any locality of near or over 10k people equals a city. It's too late to go back without a massive overhaul.

Yeah, that is so much better. Probably still needs to have some motorways downgraded to at least a trunk road, if not a primary road. A bunch of currently multilevel interchanges should also be downgraded to roundabouts or intersections.

Termapolis has been resized. It was way too big

As a former editor of Midistland and Bend, ALL of Midistland now upsets me, there is no care to how everything has been mapped, and I have been tempted recently to do what you are doing BhJ but on MASSIVE SCALE, but it's too much work for one person. That's why I'm so impatient to put into place something more organized like Gobrassanya.

I am contributing to this project by adding an intercontinental airport. A city of this size cannot survive without air transportation.

Aces: it's a dirty job but someone's got to do it lol. I am doing what I can here and there to improve it. Deleting some of these pointless motorways helps a lot. Some of the mapping there has potential and I'm trying to keep as much of that as I can. But I agree it's almost beyond repair.

No Problem!!! Feel free to add terminals, taxiways, grass in between taxiways, other buildings, and any details you see fit. Also, feel free to rearrange the road leading into the airport.

Glad I can be of service.

The City also needs improvement in the rail system and subways. I am adding stations to the subways, but what type of names should I use?

Also, can someone go and do parallel railways? There seemed to be one track of each railway, and I can't imagine two trains going in the opposite direction on the same track...

Ahhh.. Editing these blue territories reminds me of my first days in OGF.

"That's why I'm so impatient to put into place something more organized like Gobrassanya" - yeah, but Gobrassanya isn't any more organisation than a few editors babysitting it. Same to say i think we'd all like it to be purple, rather than blue!

I just donated a station. It's not much, but I hope the thought counts ;-)

I hsve been brushing up the motorway systems, such as cutting off some sections of motorways and converting some back to motorways. The page at Midistland on Motorways needs to change a bit for the modified highways.
