Unsplitting is likely to generate even more Missing Road type MPs. There's no need to do anything about those unless an actual road is missing.


I'm not talking about unsplitting roads as a whole, I'm talking about joining the 'intersection' and only the intersection, so as to control u-turns, etc. As was the original point of the OP.

For example, both sides being a V like this. (not the perfect example, but you get the idea, I hope)

If its working, leave it alone.

Aw, man. Stop it. I'm about to sob with happiness reading such things! :cry: :lol:

That's the exact way to get perfectly straight streets! (No mucking with the junction after of course.)

I first want to thank everyone for this thread. I never would have known about preserving both sides to save house numbers.

I have a procedural question. In the video I see that you merged each length of road between junctions independently. I think it would be better to pull away the side roads, remove center connectors, remove junctions and geometry nodes in the two roadways to make very long segments, and then do the merge and reconnect the side roads. First I suspect that would be faster, and second the resulting road would be smoother. No?

Alan, after looking at your video, I realize you use all the pieces wheres I deleted my 2 half's. Therefore, I had some missing house numbers. Thank you for the video. :)

I made a little video of this process. Watch it in fullscreen or at least 720p to see details. No cursor capture was working, sorry.
