Road / Driveway on uneven ground


Hey all,


I am trying to create roads/driveways in a model where i have uneven levels.   Ti would like to find a good way of creating these which includes the build up in the same way a roof, walls etc.


I have bodged it a few ways in the past depending on the specific circumstances but thought id ask if anyone has that works consistently. 


I can make it appear correct on the surface etc but it would be good to have a method which would show up correctly in sections etc.


Incredibly vague i know, but just something id like to have a process for rather than bodging it all the time.


Thanks in advance

I model roads with a complex profile that includes the curbs and sidewalks if there are any.   Paint stripes as beams. when tansitions sections of the road are not a smooth enough curve, explode to morph and adjust.  once the roadway is in place you can explode it to a morph to rodate for slope.

There are a lot of different ways to model a roadway.

Hmooslechner made some interesting objects for roads;


There's also a coop object somewhere around here for creating a "composite" that references a mesh.
