New American Traffic Lights - NYC/NJ Style

This version of the traffic lights that are based on New York/New Jersey style, if you want the generic American yellow versions, click Click here.

Notice: Today (the 19th of November) I am having surgery to fix my right shoulder, so I will be out of comission for a while. Also, recently my SSD died taking with it 90% of my mod work, as I work to remake all of my lost assets, updates might be slow coming for a while.

Also -- I will be updating this soon to fully support the new roads added by the Industries DLC, along with some new setups I introduced in the original 'yellow style' version of this mod.

This mod replaces the vanilla traffic lights with 22 different variations of American (New York/New Jersey) style traffic lights with optional working street light top props (Use Find It!). You can decide which traffic light variation you want to appear on what road types through the options menu. This allows a more realistic feel giving different size roads a different size traffic signal if the player desires.
It is fully compatible with Network Extensions.

Currently the yellow arrow signals do not operate with TMPE, but I am looking into adding this feature in the future.

NOTE: If you are having trouble figuring out which lights are which, there are two screenshots above that lay out whats what. I will make a few images later to help you figure out which traffic lights are which. It is pretty late as I am uploading this.

I made this mod as a detailed prop for a city build video I am working on so I spent a lot of time on detail and texture quality.

Elevated NEXT medium road w/ turning lane and medium road w/ painted median seem to always spawn the double sided traffic lights that are used for one-way roads. I am looking in to this.

Elevated NEXT small heavy roads (road w/ turn lane, asymmetrical roads)
These seem to spawn two traffic lights, it looks like it mirrors the same prop so I might end up having to do some trickery to get this working correctly.

Highways and highway ramps have the traffic lights on the wrong side of the intersection:
I'm aware of this, it's a bit of a limitation as T-Intersections don't work.............................yet ;)

Vanilla highways (4-lane) seem to have a few issues with placing lights as well -- I recommend using the network extensions 4-lane instead to avoid this.


Initial release


The mod also includes 3 street-lamp top props to go with the traffic lights. To place them you need: Find It, Move It, Prop Anarchy and Prop Precision (to get them placed properly)
The 3 lamps come in the 3 different vanilla street lamp light colors (neutral, warm and cool)

Big help from Vinnie P who helped me source a lot of the material I used when making the traffic lights.

I'd love to, but then, after a few times of playing my game with these lights on, my game crashes and then when I remove them, it doesn't.

I'm just gonna wait patiently for whenever these are updated and I don't get the warning/crash, so take as much time as you need with updating the lights and keep on doing good.

@WTC1973 @Da Oage -- It's not an issue or error, more of a warning. Eventually I have to go through and redo LODs as they were not properly generated with some of these meshes. Ignore the message for the time being

i m getting following error when starting the game with the mod:

Broken assets:

1550720600.New Traffic Light NYC 23_Data: LOD has too many vertices [BrokenAssetException]

No details

any idea how to fix it? I would really like to use it, since the traffic lights look awesome

Great lights, but I keep getting an error where one of the lights has too many vertices.

If only the in-game street names could appear on the signs :steamsad:

This is one of my favorite mods. Feels like home! Would love to see a pack that includes the four-way Eagle/Crouse Hinds lights from the 40s and 50s. They're still used all over the Midwest and in New York. They would be perfect for smaller intersections.

Great work, you should make Maryland traffic lights. Or lights on a wire
