After much testing, here are some screenshots of a custom-made, functioning divided highway.

As you can see it is not entirely perfect.  Sometimes the traffic will drive on the highway's middle or on the sidewalk.  But at least it works thanks to JimDiabolo's efforts with T3ed.

Is it a complete custom made divided highway? It looks like you got a great view distance.
I just followed a traffic car on durham road, it didn't drove perfect either.

The track is based on Summit track.  Summit has no divided highway, so yes this is a completely custom made divided highway. I'm working on it little by little everyday.  Although it's based on Summit, the track will replace Country Woods.  I am ensuring that the view distance is good, and so far the rear view mirror can be used without CTD.  I think I'll name it "Neighborhood Drive". Thanks for feedback.

Here are some screens that show other parts of the track.  Mind you, it is still in a raw state.  I plan to add houses and more trees and use all types of collision objects, especially type 6, like your "Track 8".  ;)

BTW, with proper speed file editing, it is possible to make the ai racers drive on the divided highway without colliding too much with the trees in the middle.  Takes a lot of patience though.

Turns out there is a limit on how many type 6 objects a single NFSHS track can hold. The max is 128.  When I try to add more, the game crashes at the loading screen, just before the race is about to start.

EDIT: There is also a limit on how big in megabytes the TR.FRD file can be, too. The max appears to be 2.65 mb. Anything larger than that will either cause visual glitches on the track in game, or will cause a CTD.

FYI, these findings were tested with the VEG Patch installed.  It is possible the limits can be lower if you are not using the VEG Patch.

Wow, you're right!  :)  Oops.  :o

Perhaps I experienced a crash because I went overboard with the extra objects? Maybe I could figure out what the max number of extra objects is although that will be a little difficult.  Once the limit is reached, the tr file becomes corrupted and you can't open it up to delete the excess objects. That's why it's so important to make many backups.

It is a relief to know that I can go that large with my Tr file. This means completing my 'Neighborhood Drive' track is foreseeable. Thanks for checking, nfsfan83.

I'm going to post my track under the "Projects" tab when I get a chance.  =D

I think you are right about that. Fortunately, T3ED can still load tracks with more than 128 "Type6" objects in order to delete some.
Sounds like you are testing the limits of HS with your track. In contrast, my project is rather small and was only created to test T3ED. I'm currently bringing parts of "Atlantica" and "Aquatica" together. But it works quite well.
