CAW TEXTURES
If you ever feel like you are too limited if you're trying to create roads, this is the place to be. I have created loads of road parts. A huge pack including all you need: road textures, road details, sidewalk tiles, crosswalks, and all available for everyone. Yes, I'm aware of the fact that there already is a road texture pack around on the internet. This pack just contains more. Pretty much everything realistic that's possible. To give you a clear image of the content of the pack I'm offering, I've uploaded some images too (scroll down). Please note that the files offered in this package are just textures and details, so eye-candy only.

DOWNLOADING
> DOWNLOAD (v2.1 - latest - link updated 29-07-2015) (http://www.mediafire.com/download/91f9331l5xot0w3/elmigo_rtpack%282.1%29.rar)


INSTALLATION
To "install" these textures, put the downloaded file into the following folder and extract it:
Documents >> Electronic Arts >> The Sims 3 Create A World-Tool >> UserToolData >> SourceTextures
Updating an older version of this package? It is best to completely delete the older version before extracting this new one into that same folder.
Note: you might want to create a custom folder in here to extract this file.


SUGGESTIONS
If you have any suggestions or ideas for new road pieces, feel free to post it in the comments! I would love to try out new things. Please keep in mind that things such as text on the roads is not possible. Also have a look at one of the road detail (stripes) files in this package. This way you can get an idea of the possibilities, or create road details yourself. For a tutorial on how to do the long dashed lines on the road, see post #10 in this topic. A link to this post is on top of this post.

@ LS_Bari

Are you talking about the one in the picture below? If so, it's already available in the package I have uploaded.

FILE IS UPDATED (13 JAN 2013)
A full opacity sidewalk file is added and the normal maps are deleted since they were not working properly. Instead you can use the default normal maps from the CAW. I promise you won't notice the differences. The crosswalks are also modified so they will fit better.

Hi Elmigo!

Thank you for the wonderful pack. I've download this version and the previous version, but I can't find the long dashed lines. All the dashed lines I have are short. Is there something I'm missing? Also, if I try to choose a displacement field CAW say that the file does not exist even though I'm staring right at it. Not sure if that is your issue. I just wanted to inform you.

@RafreaknRa

Hello there.

I apologize for this inconvenience. I understand that this could be really annoying
when it says the file can not be found. Right now, I can't think of any solution
because I have never seen such thing into the Create A World-Tool. I'll write it
down and see when I have a possible solution for it.

About the long distance dashed lines, I will explain it below. Please note that
creating turns with this special long dashed line texture is possible, but might
be a really hard thing to do. You might want to try rotating the grid by steps of
maybe 10 degrees and placing each road segment rotated in a 10 degree angle.


HOW TO DO THE LONG DASHED LINES ON THE ROAD

* Step 1:
First create a new road using all-white_continuous.png for the road detail.
This file can be found into the folder:
Street Detail \ Default Lines \ All White
in my texture package.

* Step 2:
Now create an other road with exactly the same textures, only this time use the
file white_no-center_continuous.png for the road detail.
This file can be found into the folder:
Street Detail \ No Center Lines
in my texture package.

* Step 3:
In order to have dashed lines out of these two road pieces, connect these two
in the right order. For an example, see the image below.

Note: you can also use other detail textures and combine them to create the road
details you want.

Well, I started as a World creator since three days ago, and I was looking for sometihing like a highway or boulevard. I found it, and much more. I can't wait to see your textures in my new coming world. Thanks, buddy!!!

Well, thank you too for downloading! I hope you have a lot of fun and good luck creating worlds. If there's anything you want to know about the textures, you can ask me. :)

Also, this topic (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=468969) teaches you how to make a nice highway exit for your highway roads. Made that topic a while ago and might just help you as a CAW beginner just a little...

Hello Elmigo (Whoops, I almost said Amigo :lol: )

Your roads are really fantastic! Love the creativity you put into it. :gjob:
But I can't seem to download them--I clicked on the link and waited, but it just took me to the website. I really want to use these in my world. :sigh:

Hello everyone!

I haven't been on a computer for a while due to private situations. I'm back, I fixed the link and everything. I hope you all enjoy the texture pack!

Thanks for your suggestion. I'm going to try this and if it's finished, I'll update the download link to the newer version.
EDIT: the file has been updated. The double side stripes as suggested by you, are added to the package. You can download the file in the first post.

The long dashed line texture is a combination of 2 roads. See post #10 (click here) (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=4058356#post4058356) for the tutorial. Have fun!

See post 10 for a tutorial. It requires just a little more than other roads.

> DOWNLOAD NOW (v2.0 - Latest) (http://www.adrive.com/public/UGfh2u/EMG_RTPACK_D12-M07-J2013_V2.rar)

Hey guys, I released version 2.0 with much new stuff in it!
Version 2.0 is out now! But what's new in it? For a complete list of changes, see the quoted text below. There are many changes, but I would like to discuss one thing in particular: creating your own road details! If you have Photoshop installed, it should be possible! I've put all the needed files in the main directory of my texture pack.

Can't find a file or want to create your own?
Can't find the file you are looking for? Most of you people out there know how to use Photoshop. Once the file is opened, go to your layers panel (or if you don't see it, go to Window > Layers to make it visible). Now make layers/groups visible or invisible by clicking the eye icon next to each layer or layer group. This way you can create any road line/stroke combination you want, quick and easy. This way you can also make your own road details and add them to the package. If you want to go advanced on this, use the layers called "Colorizing" and click (or double click if it doesn't work) the round half black and half white icon next to it. This should pop up a small panel which allows you to colorize/recolor the lines or strokes in the layer group below the colorizing layer. This is also why you should never move any layers or layer groups! If you do, this will probably disable colorizing or make it go really weird (because there are also other colorizing layers which will conflict with each other).

Changes:
- Custom content folder deleted, replacement added (keep reading).
- Improved folder structure to make finding the right file easier.
- Added road details for lines on just one side of the road added.
- Added road details for double lines on the side of the road added.
- Added road details for roads with bycicle strokes on one or both sides.
- Added road details for Dutch green zone (100KM/H zone) roads. (image (http://members.quicknet.nl/m.van.schie/wegen/Afbeelding16.jpg))
- "Used Street Details" PSD file to create custom content using Photoshop!

Version 2.1 is out already
I just had to delete an accidently placed folder and also improved some textures.

For me it's still working. Which browser are you using? The download should start automatically, but did you try clicking the link on the page?

Your file download should start immediately.
If it does not start automatically, please click here (http://downloadwww21.adrive.com/public/view/aYSTEg.html) to start the download process.

If it's still not working, I've uploaded the file to my Dropbox account too.

I'm also creating my own world and I need a street without a sidewalk, because I want to
place it seperate. Can you tell me how to do this? Is it even possible?

:( :cry:

It's not possible to create a road without sidewalk, but you can put a black texture file in the sidewalk area when creating a road. The sidewalk won't be visible, but it's still there. You can also try to make lots go over the sidewalk so it won't be visible anymore. This is how I tried to solve this a long time ago. However, the sidewalk will still be visible where no lots are placed.
