Yes… I kinda gave myself an overwhelming project on my end in Mecnya to build a city that is probably not on a realistic scale what so ever, but that’s okay… (Not really)… And of course trying to base it off of the area that I live in, in real life of course to the lack of major highways but smaller roads acting as main through ways for traffic to move in and out of depending on the desired flow.
If you don’t care about the rambling, I started the “Munsterhann Project” in mid-June and now going into early July, and it was supposed to be just a small town along the ‘Transversal’ (T) route in central/Northern Mecnya, supposedly a few blocks and one highway junction. Fast forward to today and now I have two suburbs with just arterial roads (Lviv, and Northside) and an unfinished skeleton of roads that is the rest of the city of Munsterhann. On a side note I did start zoning in residential spaces and city services and office buildings, but it is in a zone of about 3x12 (3 blocks by 12 blocks) in a space that compared to a map is probably the size of Charleston, West Virginia in regards to the sprawl of the city’s area in general.
I also gave myself the task to basically build a semi-unnecessary highway for the sake of the suburbs that doesn’t even effect Munsterhann in the slightest although what can be argued as a 5 mile stretch of this route (T-2) is called “Munsterhann East” as it really should be called “Lviv East” followed by an equally short stretch of highway called “Northside Lviv Freeway” which just caters to Northside. So in hindsight… I would really like some help on finishing off Munsterhann and the zones that is Lviv and Northside before I continue to the west where the large but empty space that I was originally going to call “Emsward” or something sits…
I am all open and accepting of criticisms and I would really appreciate any and all suggestions to improve this project before actually being able to map out my own country. So, If you have any suggestions or comments or maybe ideas in how I can 100% improve this, please let me know. Also Direct Messaging is also an option if you have specific suggestions that is tied to one location and not the entire thing as one whole.
Thank You in advance, and I wish you all some Happy Mapping.

West Virginian towns tend to hug the river more:

Well… True, I’m originally from there, but I was wanting to try something like Beckley or Morgantown in regards to the sprawl, Charleston was the wrong town to use

Yes, as Lithium said, residential roads would probably be better. I’m not too sure of the difference (Someone might be able to say lol) but it gives a more towny feel I reckon.
I like your layout so far though, just remember to put some residential area background when you are ready :)

Lithium, I would greatly appreciate that, but as far as the Living roads go, I was kinda basing it off of like roads you would find in a housing development or in between a set of housing blocks, but also expected to carry such a low volume of traffic.
