Hi!
As you know I am experienced road-network and sign (re)builder.
I want to make San Diego map in 2:5 scale and I am planning to do Los Angeles later. Maybe this thread best describes my wish: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=13141
Although the project is at the beginning, I think that it is serious. Why? I am fanatic of roads. I like beautiful roads through canyons with tunnels. My country, Serbia, has many such roads. If we look at highways, I like mountainous highways with many tunnels and bridges, like highway Livorno - Nice, or Thessaloniki - Igoumenitsa.
Next type of highways which I like is wide highways (at least 4+4) with complex interchanges. I really enjoy looking at the street view or Google Earth. It is natural that I want to drive across them. Los Angeles is maybe the best choice. I started with San Diego because it isn't too far, I-5 has at least 4+4 lanes all way between cities (also I-15), the city is much smaller and it has enough wide highways and complex interchanges.
I said that the project is serious. As the number of lanes is important for the full experience, I must make many prefabs and streets.
I know that I want too much. Considering all written above, my focus is on the road network and I would like to do a good landscape. Then details, including precise signage, must be omitted, but maybe not if I will get help.
So, the goal of this map isn't high quality, but very realistic road network, which lacks in both ATS and ETS.

HELP WANTED:
MAPPERS
PEOPLE WHO WILL ADD DETAILS: unnecessary signs, buildings, fences...
SUGGESTIONS:
I need suggestions for companies in south-western San Diego (between Mexico, I-5, I-8, CA 15 and I-805. It is ideal to have at least one company in each city block between bigger streets (if block is long, than more than 1 company). For all suggestions please tell which in-game company I can place and exact places. I need too much time to make crossroad so I want to waste minimal time for placing companies. I also need suggestions for truck dealers, services, agencies and gas stations.

Map progress:

This is still only a road map with terrain (and of course, all gameplay objects). No details including navigation signs.
This is the planned area for 1. release:

but the plan can change to full plan for San Diego (and that plan also can change, of course):

That will be very slow. I am alone and I must make too many prefabs. I almost finished freeway prefabs and I even didn't start street prefabs.

If you want to know what is happening, I put most of my free time into this. But I found a job, so progress is much slower. This is the progress:

This is still only a road map with terrain (and of course, all gameplay objects) because I am still alone. No details including navigation signs, except I want to put buildings into Downtown. I reached CA 54 and it took me about 2 months. Don't hope for a release this year.
This is the planned area for 1. release:

but the plan can change to full plan for San Diego (and that plan also can change, of course):

I hope that I will get help so the map will have better quality.
