Update 5 INFO

I stopped modding (too many projects) and I am searching for modders who want to continue my work (details on my discord). My mods will NOT work in update 5, because there were many changes in Satisfactory, the mods have to be ported.

Status (2021-11-29): Walgalla is porting the whole mod, (Keloh)Nessi is creating curved roads and later splined roads (or at least try to, splined roads are very hard to do). So there is a good chance we get our roads back!


UPDATE 1.1.9 INFO

I moved all side lines and side highway fences, to have space for lights etc. This means this update will (visually) BREAK your 45 degree corners, sorry for that. You can still use version 1.1.8 if you don't want to recreate these corners.

See new templates and curb in action (v1.1.8) and the new decal system (v1.1.9)

01 / DESCRIPTION

X3-Roads is a mod for creating flat and ramped roads. The mod comes with 100+ parts (I know, crazy :D), like:

  • Large corner (white & yellow)
  • Small / inner corner (white & yellow)
  • Left, center & right line and stiped (white & yellow)
  • Ramped (2m) left, center & right line and striped (white & yellow)
  • Inverted ramp for building "double ramps" (see last screenshot)
  • Fences (Road & Highway)
  • Props like Barriers & Cones (with small random rotations & locations, for more "natural" look)
  • Some decals like STOP & Zebra stripes (white)
  • Massive Build Mode with Mod "Smart Foundations" (Mod by Algalish)

With all these parts together, you can build many types of roads and also things like parking spots (see below). All ramps work like the vanilla double ramps (so you can build ramps together without building foundation "stairs" at the bottom).

Full Multiplayer-Support.

No vanilla content was overwritten, so hopefully it will work with future updates.
