Hi,

I'm afraid at present RailClone doesn't support joints or intersections. Usually this geometry problem it's difficult to solve even manually, because it requires booleans or other advanced operations. Typically for roads with complex layouts I'll create them simply by meshing closed splines, and then use the same spline to apply Curbs using RailClone.

I hope that helps.

Many thanks,

Paul

I do the same, roads are a bit of a nightmare but can look good when UV unwrapped and textured that way.

Hello,

i ran into the same problem and found a nice working solution.
Simply build only a half of the road instead of both sides.
Now u can nicely go around corners. For ur curbs, just let the spline run strait through and seperate via Spline ID simular to lower walkways.

With this solution u only have to close the inner holes. Thats simply done with spline+extude.
