Description

A highway protected and linked by catseyes.

A highway is a paved road that is at least 2 tiles wide, connecting two or more deeds.

Creating an Official Protected Highway

  • A road can be turned into an official highway if it is at least two tiles wide and connects a minimum of two deeds. The start of a highway is marked by a waystone on a deed. A second waystone on the second deed marks the end, or destination, of the highway. The highway is complete once both waystones are linked by catseyes.
  • Official protected highways use a marker at each tile corner which will protect all 4 tiles around them. These markers are called Catseyes and Waystones. Official highways are used by wagoners to transport goods as well as for general transportation purposes.
  • For additional information and troubleshooting topics on adding to existing highways, see [1].

Additions and Maintenance

  • Highways can be illuminated by blessed lamps without the need of refueling. While they will shine without further work, they still may experience some decay.
  • Connected deeds can hire a wagoner to deliver bulk items to other connected deeds.
  • Bridges can be included on highways.
  • Cave highways can be included if paved with reinforced floor.
  • Repaving a tile is possible without removing the catseye or waystone:
    • Activate the material needed for the pavement type, right-click a paved tile and select Re-pave > Tile or Nearest corner
