Road Options (Road Colors Changer ++)

Change road colors, remove crosswalks, remove road markings and more.

Provides sliders to change road colors per road category.

Lets you remove crosswalks and road markings (Highways, Vanilla small and medium roads done so far, rest coming soonish).

You can use this mod to remove road arrows and roadside props like parking meters and fire hydrants as well.

Current Features:
  • Color change for all roads/highways.

  • Highways markings removal.

  • Vanilla Small Roads markings and crosswalk removal.

  • Vanilla Medium Roads markings and crosswalk removal.

  • Global Road Arrows removal.

  • Global Random Roadside Props(hydrants, parking meters, electricity boxes, etc) removal

Planned features:

  • Vanilla Large Roads markings and crosswalks removal

  • Per-category arrows and props removal

  • NExt2 roads

  • Maybe lights, bus/tram stops, highway signs, manholes, etc. could be removed too :p

  • Eventually I'd like to allow for each road to have its own settings, instead of being categorized. But that's a lot of work so it's more of a wish-list item.

How to use



Load city.

Open Options Menu.

Change Colors.

Hold SHIFT to lock sliders and change all 3 colors at the same time.

Colors are updated upon releasing slider handle. (Updating live is too memory intensive.)

There are options to remove zebra crossings and/or lines/markings. (Large roads not done yet. Nor any of NExt2 roads.)

You can also remove road arrows and roadside random props. Once removed, you'll need to reload the game from main menu or restart the game for props and arrows to reappear if you change your mind.

NOTE: This mod doesn't actually remove the crosswalk lanes and the ability for Cims to cross the street. It only removes the white stripes part of the texture. Cims will still be able to cross the road at intersections even if you disable crosswalks with this mod. To prevent cims from actually crossing, you need to use TM:PE.

Known issues

  • Tunnel entrance prefabs are not affected.
    Tunnel entrance prefab uses a different shader and is missing the textures completely. I haven't figured out how to change those... if you know, tell me :D
  • Lod's aren't perfect, but I've maxed the lod render distance so it's least noticeable.

Incompatible mods

Network Extensions is incompatible, please use Network Extensions 2.

can you change colors for example make one line of freeyway black and connect a light gray to it?

Noticing how this mod is interfering with the roads united mod; the two lane roads texture is kinda bugged. Any way of fixing?

Labor wise; could the community help in any way?

Sadly this mod is very labor intensive to update, it takes hours to convert the textures and I just dont have this kind of time right now. You can still use the mod, it just wont color all roads.
I am very sorry if it's not the way you want it to be.

I will update and add missing roads when I get the time and feel like it.
Working on other mods that are more fun for me right now. Again, sorry. But thats how it is when I do this as a hobby.

When wil you update? NEXT2 roads are heavilly used and I can't use your mod until you update. Also there are some Mas Transit roads not sure if your mod covers them.

Been a while and I thought I'd say this. I'm extremely thankful to you for the texture of the 4 lane road with trees and the dirt certainly makes the road a lot more enjoyable for me! But now, the four lane with grass is dirt, which is kinda ironic. I'm not gonna be asking for it because I can work around it, but still, thanks for the dirt texture!

This mod is so useful. However, do you think it would be possible that you could make the mod so it only removes textures from certain nodes rather than all of them. I only want to remove it from certain areas when doing some of my larger builds rather than the whole network.

This may be answered already, but does this mod work with Road United mod?

I have the same issue like AvillaFM please fix it or tell us whats the problem. Also, the mod Network Extensions 2 have problems at the same time with this mod :(
