Road Games
« on: May 05, 2021, 01:15:42 PM »

Is there a game where you can set a destination and watch it drive you there or something? I wish you could do that on Google Maps but you can't... Is there any games like that avaliable?

The KYTC Photolog can do it for Kentucky, although I don't know if it's still up (the first link I tried to access was from 2020 and gave an error).

hbelkins knows more about it.

Don't think so, but google street view allows you to travel but you have to click forward.

I do that already! I've been all around the country. I'm currently on US-29.

I once tried to do a road trip on google street view from Ocean City Maryland to California. I get to Nevada on I-80 before quitting.
I went to every state besides CA, Hawaii, and Alaska, without skipping! I've been doing it since I've quit all online games, it's very fun for me.

You have to choose individual routes within counties. You can't just input "Campbellsville" and "Danville" and have the site automatically drive you there. But you can click on the map and zoom in and select a certain route in the photolog and push "play" and it will advance a frame at a time, at variable user-defined speeds.

You could try using google maps, and set up an autoclicker to advance the image at a certain intervals, while using WASD to look around.
