Just before you look In the After image the Freemans Buildings are removed due to sufficient permission when releasing, please aslo note in the after image I'm trying to figure out the shelters as seen in the Real Image of the area I hope you all appreciate the remake this will also be Little more friendly for low end pc's due to less thing sbeing used as I had to delete 100 splines ( Exaggeration ) Just to redo the bus station. Whole new Vehicle paths pavements and markings.

If you are concerned about performance, when your map is finished, you ought to look at converting the more complex constructions into objects, which will help. Also, removing Freemans objects is a good call - they're inefficient, poorly mapped in general and simply don't look good. There's an automated converter tool in the downloads section which ought to help you acquire unique objects.

Yeah It was only around Leigh, but because I used like the 2.5M dressing in the whole area to cover roads & did car paths uning invis splines, as you can imagine this got messy haha but yes I definitely will look into doing that and more reason of why I removed them. Glad you mentioned.

So after many hours of removing Leigh and it's un-needed 44 tiles (588 route) I have finally started on rebuilding Leigh, the aim for this is to get the roads as close as I am willing to give it the most accurate feel to the routes, This will not be done across the map fully but in the leigh area it will be accurate as I can work with the resources I can.

I most definitely will be don't worry unfortunately I gotta redo that, the editor crashed on me xD
Oh, I'm so sorry! :(
Good luck rebuilding it, at least you've got a reference image on how it's supposed to look in the end!
Also, I've found that even if you're frustrated when the editor crashes, when you do re-do it, it actually ends up looking better than the original. :)

I know doesnt look like much is going on but across the map are building appearing in the scenery and most of these buildings are either real represenations of the real ones or they are a model to represent whats there but not being exactly how it is I hope you guys are looking forward, but theres alot of work yet to be done.

To enhance the realism of the map I have decided to remove the tunnel and create what's actually there (Bolton Rd Ring Road) This will now allow me to create routes 36/37/8/X8 between bolton and manchester I hope this makes you all excited this is going to take some time to complete overall but I have alot of assets knocking around to make it slightly more realistic rather then fictional.
