I do know it's tempting to say it, but it is photoshopped.
I for example saw once this picture and i first was like "OH MY GOD ! Custom bus stops ! Diagonal roads, custom interchanges, woooaw !" but then i knew it was actually photoshopped.

Let me tell you a thing. If TrueBrain really did have graphics and code for diagonal roads back in 2012, he would have released them a few time ago at least.

Oh damn... if that isn't heart-breaking as much as a game can be, then I don't know what could be ;( Why would anyone taunt us like this in the first place!

But you're right. Diagonal roads would be too awesome not to release publicly if they acually existed. Man, I feel naive... Such a pity though.

I recall an old patch pack, a Russian one maybe? Having diagonal roads some time ago. But my memory might be faulty.

Also, regarding that photoshopped screenshot, well, there is a long loooong story behind the person who made it (if my suspicions are correct) and it's not worth getting into.

I do also remember someone mentioning a functioning patch for diagonal roads. However, i don't remember in what topic it could be.

You can recreate that image with a fairly simple sprite replacement GRF. however, this will not change the movement of the vehicles.

The patch I played was functional but buggy. I'll have a dig about and see if I can find it. But anyways, it'd be a nice feature at some point.

Was digging around and found there was a Diag level crossing included in this old Patch Pack ....viewtopic.php?f=29&t=24423 .

The Patch is so old ,would need a rewrite ..... viewtopic.php?t=26584 .

Yes, diagonal road crossings is one thing. That'd imply a railroad is diagonal. Diagonal roads by itself is a whole different issue.
