I have tried to create new roads for the frisians. Normal roads got a sandy coloring. The busy road are now colored like the bricks of big houses:

new_roads

Old style:

old roads

What do you think?

I generally like the new roads: +1, but have suggestions:

  • 1) The not busy roads have a greenish outline which I think should be more of a darker brown to better fit into but be visible enough on different terrains.
  • 2) The "tracks" on the busy road should be darker so they don't look like "rails".

I prefer the old roads, they are straight and their nodes are visible. And somehow I prefer the salmonish color (and the blue as well) over the grey, because grey is rather boring.

Edit: By the way, Frisian bricks are not grey. They are full of red...

The new normal road looks nice, but too curved IMHO. It should be straighter, perhaps not completely, but more than this. I agree that the busy road should have darker edges if you make the middle darker.

New attempt regarding your comments:

new_roads

The normal roads looks a bit boring, although i have made two different ones. One has some transparent areas, so the terrain is shining through, best to see on green and yellow terrains.

The new normal roads are great face-smile.png

Could you make the busy roads shorter, so they don´t overlap that much at the ends?
