Hi All,

It's me again, is there an easier on how to align the road to the terrain without having to change the gradient, skew and delta h manually?

Thanks

In short - no. You align the terrain to the road, not the other way around. The reason for this is because the terrain uses a grid of 5x5m, which would mean that roads following all but the gentlest of terrain would have sudden and extreme gradients, rather than being nice and smooth.

It's irrelevant - the terrain is still a 5x5m grid, so it would not be good to align the road to terrain automatically. You'll just have to do it yourself manually.

Ah alright, it was worth a shot, but I can see why now you talked about it.
