Reusing Road Designs and Templates

You may want to reuse a previous road design. Whenever you save a road, a text file with the road design parameters are saved. To open this file, select File-Open Road Design from the menu. The road dots will reappear and the icons will be reset to the values stored in the file. The dots can be moved as if you had placed them yourself.

You can also use a previous road design as a template, for example, to help make roads for adjoining terrain maps. Select Template-Open Template from the menu. The Show Template menu item will be checked and the road will appear as a green line in the Draw Road window. You can hide/unhide the template by selecting the Show Template menu item.

By careful placement of road dots, you can start to recreate the road design.
