Well, my freeway system is meant for horses, which is as close to a car as vanilla Minecraft will probably ever get.

I would expect signs that warn of the toll booths, but I don't see them.

They're before the left lane has a solid line.

On Minecraft Pocket Edition (which sucks way more the Xbox/PC) I did a highway world. I had I 94 and 43, and US 41. Sorta trying to model the area around Wisconsin/Illinois border.
It didn't go too well.

I wish I was that patient when playing Minecraft. I rush things too much. I need to get the car mod.

How did you get the Do Not Enter signs? Also, how do the traffic lights change automatically?

You set the world time to 8 PM with yellow text? That's not vanilla Minecraft!!! (Minecraft doesn't have that kind of time, just the tick number)

Any time I try to do anything with Minecraft, I either get impatient because everything takes so long to build or angry because my computer laaaa-a-a-a-l-l-l-laaaa-laaa...*ahem*...lags. A lot. Although the one time I did try to do anything, I spawned in the middle of the ocean and ended up building a lot of basic paths over the ocean between islands, and then little mini-towns on those islands. I had plans to eventually upgrade everything, but then I lost interest, and then I bought a new laptop and had to re-download Minecraft, so that's long gone.  :-/ A month or two ago, I started a new (Superflat) world where I spawned in the middle of an NPC village, so I decided, why not build a loop freeway around a village with maybe ten houses in it!?



I think I'd like doing this more if I had a clue what I was doing...like...if I knew how to construct the roads better. I always seem to get it wrong. I normally don't do Superflat, though. I don't remember why I did here.

How did you get the Do Not Enter signs?
Maps on item frames.  I use a program to convert images to maps, and then upload them to the server data folder in Filezilla.  Maps fill up the entire item frame in 1.7, so I only do it on 1.7.  The server my college buds and I run is still on 1.6 (the one with all the fancy lighting effects and clouds), so I've only used this on a post-apocalyptic build server I started participating in:


Also, how do the traffic lights change automatically?
Currently they don't, but I might do some Voodoo magic to get them to work with command blocks and summon commands.  I could program it in a way that would be dynamic and timed.  If you're standing at a certain block, it could trip the "loop detector" and change the light.

You set the world time to 8 PM with yellow text? That's not vanilla Minecraft!!! (Minecraft doesn't have that kind of time, just the tick number)
Bukkit for multiplayer.  I'm an admin on that server.  I abuse creative mode and world-edit for these creations.  I don't have time to do this in survival.

Sorry for the bump!  I should have waited a few days to make it 4 years.

I occasionally Google things like "Minecraft freeway" or "Minecraft interstate", but I haven't seen anything cool lately.  I decided to use something more technical than the word freeway or interstate, and this picture came up when I Googled "Minecraft parclo":


The original Reddit thread has a link to an album of ground-level pictures too.  Other results on Google with the same interchange led me to the Planet Minecraft profile of the Reddit poster, and there are a bunch of roads on it.

Another picture led me to a parclo from Chinesehorse on Imgur.  There are more roads on Chinesehorse's Imgur album page.

It looks like I'm bumping this thread again!

Every so often, I look for pictures and videos of roads in Minecraft.  I haven't found any new ones recently until last night.  I found a few videos of Nework City:




I did a bit of Googling, and found the city's page on Planet Minecraft.

I recently started playing Minecraft again. It didn't work well on my old laptop, but I have a new one now and it works great. I started a world on "Large Biomes" mode and so far have discovered a desert and a grassland. I've already created multiple villages, built a couple of skyscrapers (high rises), a high speed rail link between the villages, and 2 lane highways to connect the villages together. Eventually I'll build freeways, but I'm not far enough along yet.
