Said it on the other thread, but ill say it again, would it be possible for you to draw them to proper scale on correct tile sizes so that we can see how it would look as a proper sprite :)

I have just touched it up a bit, and this will do on this building for now. Really struggling to draw the pylons though :(

As far as I know he thinks about a road, which is not allowed to use by car/bus/truck!

The problem with pedestrianized roads as new objects is a town with it's roads replaced by these would not grow, best wait for newgrf road types. :)

If you pedestrianised all the roads in a real city, i expect that wouldnt grow much either.

You'd surely only put them in a limited area, like a single market street or something.

Good point, but that would usually be in the center of the city, and correct me if I'm wrong but i think if you destroy the root road in a city it won't grow either.

Mainly, I would only use these for car-free resorts, which I don't want to grow. And besides, I usually play with town growth turned off.

Also, road types could be a while before it is implemented, right? Also, a roadtype, what would your vehicle be? Pedestrians?

If you don't like them, you don't have to build them.

Perhaps groups of pedestrians, Segways, bicycles, or even one of these things?

Why does a road type have to have vehicles on it at all? There is nothing to say it does, it could be implemented as a way to lay pavement and such things, roadtypes will be usable in whatever way people can dream up to exploit that feature, much like with newobjects. Whoever thought you'd be able to make a motorway using newobjects, but Foobar has managed it.

Think outside the box ;)

Should Foobar not have waited to make motorways a roadtype, then? :P

I think road types will most probably be limited to 2 lanes so no :)

Road types should not be confused with with multi-tile wide roads or more road lanes per tile. That's something entirely different (and at least as complicated).
