Mark-a-Route Signs
10 items
A mod that lets you label your roads with route markers, add and replace highway signs, and much more!

Currently Supported Routes shields:
  • Interstate
  • US highway
  • Ontario highway
  • Australian national route
  • British Columbia highway
  • Generic Motorway shield
  • German Autobahn
  • Dutch Autosnelwegen
  • Chinese Expressway
  • Toronto Expressway


Labeling Roads

To label a road segment, just click on the "Mark Route" button->"Mark Road Segment", select a road segment, and set the route! Alternatively, click on a pre-existing route value to apply the same route value. You can adjust the value by clicking on the same road segment again and typing in a new value, or delete it by removing the route number.

Freeplacing signs

To add a sign, click on the "Mark Route" button->"Add a sign", and type in the route type and destination(type in "\n" without the quotes to split lines up). After clicking set, rotate the sign with the mouse using prop tool controls, and click on the location you want the sign to be at.

To add a dynamic sign, click on the "Mark Route" button->"Add a dynamic sign", and first select a road segment that you want to measure traffic at. Then, rotate the sign with the mouse using prop tool controls, and click on the location you want the sign to be at.

Video Demo for sign placement[]

To remove a sign(either type), simply use the bulldozer tool as normal, the sign to be deleted will be highlighted in red.

In Straaya and NZ you might have to change it to 'Mark-a-Root'

When working with 2 signs on a gantry, how do you get the second sign to show anything? When i was working with 2 signs, the right one only displayed something, i couldn't get the left sign to display anything

Removing a dynamic sign produced a null reference exception error that required me to force quit the game in order to stop it

@tony56a .... great mod

1. Can you please add ability to change background color and font color .... preferably with a color palette but if not, then at least with a range of basic colors (blue, yellow, red, black, green, white, etc).
2. Can you please add ability to add arrows (left and/or straight and/or right).
3. Can you please add option to make the signs for left hand drive roads as currently they seem to be for right hand drive roads only.
4. Can you please add night light on the signs for night time.

Cheers :)

What is the third sign you have in the first screenshot? I couldn't find it anywhere and really want to use it in my game

EDIT: Also, is there any way I can download that awesome single gantry sign?

@tony56a: My problem was a bit different, as all signs were missing. Today I came back and there were present again. The other city is still a problem; but as you said, it's a known issue. As a workaround to minimize problems, I'll just be sure to close the game completely before switching cities. Thanks for your hard work!

@tony56a every custom skin gets reset to default, so trees, street lamps.
