put them next to each other, side by side, or use the stamp boarders, and use the road texture to fill inside the road. Remember increasing the polygons decreases the triangle size FYI.

I mean, on the triggers tab on F3 mod, (maybe number 7 tab) you get a bunch of commands like entity, event, etc.. then you get triggers that work with when the chosen commands are on, like actor to waypoint etc, does anyone know where there is a place that i can get a definiton, or an example of all the triggers and what they do?
