I'm going to cry... someone completely screwed up the paramus area SR-17, ramps, etc. Why do these newbies think these things need to be fixed? Heck, all of the segments on portions of 17 are now disallowed!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Names are wrong, everything is screwed up. I don't have time to fix this all....

154.) Yep, looks like you are correct. May have been copy and paste error on my part or I didn't notice the incorrect number. Near there, do we really want to have a u-turn here? If not, the ramp should just bridge across SB Madison so there is no way to turn.


Yeah, that U-turn shouldn't be allowed. I bridged over and moved the ramp node to start where the solid white line begins.

155) Is this the best way to draw out the ramp? I think the UR is confused as well.

I was thinking something similar to google maps - https://maps.google.com/?ll=40.76078,-73.96428&z=19

Edit: the GPS tracks indicate people are driving directly onto the ramp. Go ahead and split it like Google and the instructions should be correct.


I wish I could. The segments are locked by a level 5 editor; which makes me think some thought went into this setup and not googles.

Weeezer14 is the mod for this forum and he does a great job. He should see this within the next few hours and let us know what he thinks.

156) These segments need to be attached to the locked streets:

I'll leave 156 for Jon since he's had experience there.


155 had an incorrect junction UR without specifying anything. The way the ramp was created/locked doesn't look too idea. I would have thought something more in line with the way Google drew it. I was wondering if you think we should update it or leave it be.

The other way a certain other map site shows it does seem to be better -- traffic from 2nd Ave lines up better and the turn instruction would be more timely from 59th St. I just made the changes. Take a look and let me know if I missed anything.


looks like how I would have done it... thanks.

And our newbie who started this discussion replied to my PM and it seems like honest newbie mistakes and I think he has been set straight.


yeah... that is what I thought. Although he didn't respond to me :( Maybe I was a bit too harsh.

Wow, they did make a mess. :(

As we just discussed, I'll PM them also and help you clean up the damage. Sigh.


FYI, I also locked the main highways to stop further mess.


I was thinking about that, but I did want to give the people the ability to add parking lots in the future since 4 and 17 have a lot of major retail areas that haven't been mapped yet.

I'm definitely pro for mapping out big parking lots, but don't always have the patience for doing it...

I wish there was a way to lock segments at levels below a person's current segment, because locking it at a level 2 is probably where we want it to be, not a level 5...
