[NM] Change Signs In Las Cruces For I-25

#1 Post by Usernameless User » 01 Apr 2020 19:11

Hello,
I would like to suggest that you replace the route signs in Las Cruces. When driving south on I25 and nearing the US70 intersection (exit 6), the signs are misleading (and inaccurate). That last one (sign #3) made me miss my turn once because it did not say west. I play without satellite navigation. I suggest that you remove the 3 signs that are in the game and replace them with 2 as shown below. And is game.log.txt necessary for such reports? I do not use mods at all.
Thanks for your attention

Not a bug (tho I do agree it's not right). Unfortunately due to a limitation in signs this is the best that can currently be done. There should be a sign previous to the exit sign saying US70 West Las Cruces Exit 6. If not it will be in the next map update.
Hopefully in the future this can be fixed correctly.

I don't understand what you mean here. The format of the real-world signs – one route shield followed by two destinations – is already common in the game. Wouldn't "us_fw_ext_maj2_2_sd" for the first two signs and "us_fw_ext_maj2_1_oh" for the third sign work here?

Then I get bug reports for the missing pull-thru sign.

Thank you for the answer. There is west on the sign #2 before the #3, but the 3rd one created confusion. The whole sign row went form east (#1) to west (#2) and back to east (#3). I though that the west was a mistake, it only appeared once as opposed to 2 east ones. So my issue was not with the formatting or what is there in the real world, but more like the misleading part of it. But can the east part of the sign #3 at least be removed (like in reality)? Or maybe remove the 1st east sign? In addition, I was told in another thread by a moderator to report missing and misleading road signs here (I do not mean missing real signs). And of course it's not a bug, but I do remember a discussion about reporting wrong signs by a developer in this forum. But I guess it is not best to post such things like missing route signs here (which there are a lot). I apologize.

@natvander Ah, I thought they were two different signs that had been combined.

No - this is one of the unfortunate spots where no matter what is used, it just isn't quite right (in reality I can't use both destinations on the advance signs as these should reflect what's on the exit sign. I can't use both destinations on the exit sign as there isn't one with a pull-thru). The best I can possibly do is remove cardinal directions on all signs except the sign for Las Cruces. This is one area that is on my hit list to be fixed with some new signs, but that needs resources to be free.
