Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This basic set of motorway decorations allows you to diversify your neighborhood look.

Please keep in mind, that this set is mostly for advanced simmers, with some kind of experience on making custom neighborhoods and using of neighborhood camera modds.

If you don’t have enough info about all this stuff, I recommend you to check the MTS2 tutorials.

Now, some info about the set.
It contains:
1. Motorway straight piece.
2. Road overpass.
3. Motorway piece with overpass and exits on both sides.
4. Motorway piece with exit to road, one side.
5. Motorway piece with exit to road, both sides.
6. Pedestrian overpass.

Recommendations and explanations:
Fist of all, I’d like to say that this set is an eye candy only.
Since it’s a neighborhood decoration, it will not work as a real neighborhood road and you will not able to place any lots next to it.

It does not animated, so you will not see any cars, moving along the motorway or any of the pieces of this set.

But any object of this set can be placed over the road and also over the lot, so if you want to have some cars on your motorway, just put it over exiting road.

It is highly recommended to have a Free Time EP installed, to be able to edit exiting terrain, for better use of this set. Because of it was created for totally flat terrain, it may look bad on any kind of hills, mountains and terrain slopes – please keep this in mind when you will work on a motorway in your neighborhood.

If you have a Free Time EP, use ‘modifyneighborhoodterrain on/off’ option (here you can find more info about this Free Time EP option), in other case, make sure that the terrain of your ‘hood does contain some flat area, where the motorway can be placed.

You will also need a lot of patience and some experience during motorway construction, since there is no snapping to grid in neighborhood mode.

Just put all the files from the zip to your S2 downloads folder.
All the elements will appear in ‘Misc’ submenu of Neighborhood decorations.

Have fun!

Polygon Counts:
Motorway straight piece: 1668
Motorway road overpass: 372
Complex overpass with exits: 3076
Two side exits: 2836
One side exits: 2700
Pedestrian overpass: 460

These might be for experienced simmers, but they are GREAT and fun to figure out! I spent 6 hours once just making neighborhoods with your creations! The more I play, the more I learn. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I am having exact same problem Volker stated above, about being unable to unpack the files due to getting "corrupted archive" notices. I can't get the Tram set or this one. Same problems with both, unfortunately. I've been trying for over a month now and I had cleared my cache and temporary folders plus anything else I could think of. Nothing works. THanks for any help anyone can render.

What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways
Friskies, feed the senses. Cat sez eff that, gimme cheezburgers.
