How to resize a roundabout

Postby vvk11 » Tue Nov 28, 2017 10:06 pm

Hi,

I'd like to share my technique to resize a roundabout. Of course without re-creating it to prevent loss of traffic data. Badly-sized roundabout cause navigation problems - App falsely deems one has left or continued to drive roundabout.
This method requires popular WME Toolbox plugin.

So here's our skewed roundabout:

Step 1: Measure the correct radius of roundabout. We do it by attempting to create a new roundabout, but only to read the size - do not save it!

Step 2: Pan to a nearby free space (without roads) and create a new temporary roundabout of desired size. First, create a straight road segment, then draw roundabout over it. Only size matters here. Save.

Step 3: Select one of temp. roundabout segments and use WME Toolbox function "Draw roundabout area place". Save.

Step 4: Remove temporary roundabout and the road you have created in step 2. Save. Only area object remains. Select this object, so moving handle appears at the top:

Step 5: Use the handle and move the object to desired roundabout position. Save.

Step 6: Now the fun begins: use maximum zoom and manually adjust old roundabout segments to match the area object. The places where lines are at small angle are quite visible. You don't have to be quantum-accurate. Just do it nicely. You might need to remove or add some geometry nodes and adjust connecting roads as well. Use the area object as the reference. It really is not so hard as it seems at first!

Step 7 (optional): Remove roundabout area object. Your local guidelines may also require you to keep it.

All done! Voila!

Thanks! Back in the days, before "WME 2.0" update broke everything, I often used an add-on script to do exactly the same. I had very useful circular overlay feature that could be used as a visual guideline when resizing or moving a roundabout. Now it's gone, so I have to start using your method. I still miss roundabout angles feature though. It's hard to make normal roundabouts without it.

The ability to adjust the diameter will be available in the next week or two.

I have my own manual resizing technique, which I was asked to detail here a couple of months ago. Using that method you can guarantee normal roundabouts by making your template normal - the example shows just that being done. Of course, my method is even more time-intensive that the method detailed in this topic! Don't blame me for how long it takes. :lol:
