    I have discovered a method to reduce the number of roads preserving conections between tiles. It was applied to the roads I was using, stone roads made by cassembler:

    Another advantage is that big cities aren't invaded by side roads:

    If somebody want to change other kind of road graphic, the algorithm is something like:

    Code:
    FOR each tile:
    
    First: 
    IF a tile side is fully roaded (center side road and both diagonals) THEN 
    erase the side road.
    
    Second: 
    IF a tile has a center road in a side AND the two closer sides are roaded THEN 
    replace that side road with a diagonal road to the closest corner 
    (there is normally just a free diagonal, except a few cases)
    I think that the simplest thing is to follow the new connections :dubious:

    This set of roads results from :
    genuine roads, plus a little improvement, plus a lightening.

    Preview :


    In-game :


    Note : works with [civ3], maybe also with other civ-flavors.

    Unzip,
    backup ...\Civilization III\Art\Terrain\Roads.pcx,
    then replace it.
