Can we share roads with each other?
« on: January 26, 2014, 03:12:24 pm »

Hi all,

Subject about covers my question. It'd be nice if we could share roads, but I don't see how it would be possible.

The roads and object placement data are in the cache folder in your data directory. These data can be exchanged, as long as people do not map the same locations and don't get into a merge conflict.

So as long as I don't have a something placed where a shared object is there shouldn't be an issue?

Thanks for the response cameni!

Also, are there any threads where this happens?

All roads and objects are divided into tiles that are roughly 2.5 x 2.5 km large, and written in individual files within the cache folder hierarchy. There's no way to merge two files yet - that means, if two people create roads in the same tile, just one of them will remain when you copy them from one user to another.
