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.

Great mod! But the vanilla two-way highway still remain the original color. Anyone know how to solve it?

@TPB Crosswalks on "Elite tram tracks" still there, rest is working fine as far as i can say.

I agree. Mods do this stuff for us mostly free of charge. If something is broken atm, just wait. Maybe go start a new game and disable any broken mods until they are fixed or it become obvious that they are not getting updated/fixed.
Comments are increasingly becoming annoying bitchfests, not only here, but seemingly across all forum platforms.
Everyone take a chill pill and enjoy some other aspectr of life either on the internet or in the outernet or both if you please. Just relent with the moaning and negativity.
Peace be with you all.

I am not TPB :)

Everyone please be patient. TPB is in the process of moving house atm, which means he isn't really on here much (if at all) and that the mods will have to wait until he's settled in and has internet again. Comments like "fix" or "mod is broken" are completely useless. If you find a problem with the mod explain what happens and how to make it happen in game, so TPB has a chance to actually find the cause. Since the mod is working for some of us it's much more likely another mod interfering than the mod being broken. So try turning off mods until you find the one conflicting.

Please respect our modders and remember that this is something they do in their spare time, which they don't always have a ton of. ;)

I like this mod to make my roads look darker but the pop-in is pretty damn annoying.

Is there any way to make the roads dark in the entire map? Because now everytime you zoom out or you have roads in the background they turn back to their lighter color.

Seems to work fine on my end except for a minor issue with the asymmetrical road:
