Regarding signs on the I-515: what about the sign in this picture? It says: US-95 South to Phoenix. In real life it should say something like this: US-95 South to Kingman.

And in this screenshot I miss a sign: I-15 South to Los Angeles and/or to the Las Vegas Boulevard. But maybe that sign is placed somewhat more to the west on the US-95 so therefore it is not visible in this screenshot? Yeah, that must be it.

But I don't remember a situation like this (where a large area was obviously totally unfinished) happening before
I can.......Oregon. Majority of Oregon signage, stop signs and traffic light wise was pretty bad at its release. That's why Vegas does not bother me much. There are a lot of people that got Oregon once it got signage updates so most are not aware how bad it was. Day one Oregon was cool because it followed NM...a desert state. But once you start looking around, it felt rushed and was unfinished.

I think the signs will be added, and I’m not worried about it.

The main Thing I want is more of Las Vegas Blvd to be drivable.

Yeah I agree. I thought we'd at the least be able to go from the Welcome sign to Tropicana and then block it off. Just the sign by itself doesn't do a lot. I had high hopes for that section of the strip. Its not a game changer for me but I will admit that I was a tad bit disappointed once I saw we could drive further North on the strip.

I’m hoping that maybe it will be added when the Beta is done being tested or it’s something that will be added.

i hope at some point they add another exit on the 515 cuz right now...its....kinda a long stretch of nothin

maybe flamingo would be a nice road to add an exit to. flamingo rd would be a two for one special ! (get it.. 2 exits, 1 road :lol: )

That's precisely the thing, though: even though Oregon was a bit rushed/unfinished, it didn't actually feel all that bad because the comparison was the base map and NM (which was a step forward, but still very much a prototype for later map design.) It was still leagues better on average then anywhere else on the map, because nothing else at that point was realistic either.

But with Vegas, they've shown their hand a bit more with Washington, Utah, and Idaho, as well as retouched parts of Oregon, New Mexico, and Arizona, and even a couple of patches of Nevada and northern California. That level of signage now stands out a lot more.

I'm otherwise completely happy with Vegas considering its scale, but the lack of signage and signalling make it feel significantly less up-to-date than it actually is.

@averyc2506 Soooooo 2 Stones for one bird :lol:

I am not too concerned at this stage for the polish on Vegas will come, there are like a million things I'd love for Vegas, I'll be happy for 5 :lol: The biggest is not having to drive through the city, which has been done, thought upgrading the assets I kind of want to drive the city streets now :lol:

I'm not to sure about adding the Flamingo ramp. The downside to interchanges,junctions and on/off ramps is that they take up a lot of space. Perhaps the Flamingo ramp would have been the better choice vs what we got. Which at that point would mean that we would have gotten more of the strip which is what I thought would happen to begin with.

The frontage road is usable and visible in the new map. However, it is part of the freeway itself and does not have any parking lot access.
Ahhh I see, so it's completely useless now lol? It's not longer a shortcut to that Walberts? Where does it go?
