Flexible Intersections v0.9.2

Description
Flexible Intersections provides more intelligent lane mapping for intersections to avoid traffic congestion.

Normal road intersections in Transport Fever allow cars to go from any lane to any other lane in the intersection, so you get cars turning right from the left lane, left from the right lane, and changing lanes mid-intersection when going straight. Flexible Intersections restricts turning to either the leftmost or rightmost lane (exception: trams/buses can turn left from the bus lane).

Flexible Intersections also avoids the other intersection bottleneck, pedestrians crossing the road, by providing pedestrian underpasses.

Each road direction can have an independent number of lanes, lane width, tram track, etc. A road direction can be omitted entirely by setting the number of lanes to zero.

Optional bus stops can be added to any road direction, on either/both sides of the road (up to 8 bus stops for the intersection). They will show as terminals for the intersection as a whole rather than individual bus stops.

Flexible Intersections can be configured as either a regular straight intersection, or as a roundabout. Traffic throughput will likely be a little higher with the straight Crossing style.

Note: this mod is functional, if not pretty. If any modder would like to contribute some assets to make this look nicer, let me know.

@gac2: Yes, techically this isn't a road, it's a fancy bus stop, so as far as the game is concerned there's not a continuous "road" between towns (even though cars and pedestrians can actually drive/walk there).

If the warning bothers you, you can disable it with my Disable enforceMainConnections mod, or edit the config file as described on the top of that mod page.

I added this intersection and it works amazing, however, it keeps giving me an alert that the cities connection is severed. Seems to be working though, my busses and freight trucks pass normally and passenger cars seem to also be passing normally. Is it just a glitch because it thinks its a bus stop thats in the way?

@kf6shc: technically in-game it's a bus stop, you'll find it under Road | Passenger.

@michalm-ller: because there are no taxis in the game?
If a modded "taxi" is really a bus, then it should behave the same as any other bus.

Ok. This mod looks pretty pretty nice. But a Question: Why is this thing not available for Taxis?
