Controls

Labeling Roads

To label a road segment, just click on the "Mark Route" button->"Mark Road Segment", select a road segment, and set the route! Alternatively, click on a pre-existing route value to apply the same route value. You can adjust the value by clicking on the same road segment again and typing in a new value, or delete it by removing the route number.

Freeplacing signs

To add a sign, click on the "Mark Route" button->"Add a sign", and type in the route type and destination(type in "n" without the quotes to split lines up). After clicking set, rotate the sign with the mouse using prop tool controls, and click on the location you want the sign to be at.

To add a dynamic sign, click on the "Mark Route" button->"Add a dynamic sign", and first select a road segment that you want to measure traffic at. Then, rotate the sign with the mouse using prop tool controls, and click on the location you want the sign to be at.

To remove a sign(either type), simply use the bulldozer tool as normal, the sign to be deleted will be highlighted in red.
