curved street with intersections
show user profile  arcitek
I have been jumping around and searching the internet and various forums for a good answer for this problem but I am starting to think there is no real good answer.

I have a street drawn on a site plan in autocad the street curves a couple of different ways plus it has several intersections. If this was a simple curved street, I would use a loft and easily texture this. Things are much more challenging now and I am looking for some help.

My first question is, even if you take a simple curved spline in max, offset it and then turn it into a poly plane, how do you texture this so a cobblestone texture or road with painted lines would follow the curve??

My second question is how do you then create the intersecting streets and have the textures "flow" into one another?? I can post the cad drawing if desired.

Thanks,

K.
