I like it in general, but question; is it possible to get the join a little tighter? Just asking, could be hard to do, I don't know.

Yes, the artwork is good. The dirt roads look dirty. I like the dividing lines on the sealed roads. But you can see the joins between hexes, and that kind of ruins it. As Ziggy said, that seems like an awful lot of work to get right.

Nice one, but i agree with the joins. They kind of kill the good.

Yep. Understood. "Pixelated round-off error."
I need to come up with a tighter procedure for join alignments.

transportation lines combined with the beveled units mod and Eddy Vegas' awesome user interface mod (i.e., the way I'm playing the game).

You're welcome.

It's hard to fully debug a mod like this because I can only see all the join combinations when they finally occur in one of my games. I've build a grid to help align things, but still subtle dis-joins can lurk.

So, I expect another update or two (or three) before it's all settled. If anyone finds dis-jointed joins, posting a pic here would help me fix it.

Well done. RRs and paved roads look too much alike in the base game and dirt roads were too lightly colored. Your mod fixes that.
