I am one of the devs having a go at this in my spare time. Been super busy with School Exams so its been difficult to find time to get this going! It will start again this week for sure. Anyway here are my plans:

1. M3 and South East Rebuilding - I have pretty much finished Basingstoke, a large modern town in Hampshire near where I live. This will act as the starting point for the A339 to Newbury and the A33 to the M4 at Reading. The A30 will turn in to the A303, I am debating whether the A303 can have its M3 Junction (J8) due to scale reasons. This is because I need to add in the Winchester A31/A34 Junction (J10) as they are both key routes through the south. The M3 now has accurate signage and lanes, with the named Fleet services. I will look at Southampton and Portsmouth also, and the A3 will continue north to incorporate the city of Guildford.

2. M1 Rebuilding and the East Midlands Conurbation (Nottingham, Derby, Leicester & Ilkeston)
This region is very important to me and it would be great to map it, so after the first project I will move to this area. It is unbelievable in my eyes that 3 of the UK's largest cities are not included in the game. The building of these cities will allow roads like the A52, A38, A6, A609, A60 to come in to the game. I will also build the market town of Ilkeston as it will add to the density of the area, which I believe the UK strongly needs, being one of the densest countries in the world. Leicester is a large city and will play host to the A6 and M69 motorways.

The M1 as a whole is very lackluster in the game, so it will be completely rebuilt. Junctions for A43, A5, A453, A60, A6 and possibly the A42/M42 junctions will come in. I will attempt the Cathorpe Interchange for the M6/A14 but as a new mapper this could be very difficult :)

This is gonna take aaaaaages, so dont expect a lot, especially since I am very inexperienced, but it will come with time!

As in a finished version of the current building project or what it was before they started building? or are you planning to add all the roadworks and stuff? ;)

The current project tbh, I mean the rebuilding of the junction should be done as this comes out. But if you want otherwise let me know ;p

I would definitely suggest adding the A34 from Winchester to Oxford as it's a hugely important southern trunk route, and we always use it when travelling north to south instead of the motorways.

As nostalgic as I feel about how it was before, the new one is far better for navigating in a huge lorry :D

So, is this project both the U.K and Ireland, or the U.K by itself? If it is both I can give a good amount of information about roads, landmarks, buildings, etc in Ireland. Especially in Dublin and surrounding areas like Swords.

I will be doing that Kuba as well as the A43 as it is the major route up north.
