Is it possible to reverse vc's vehicle paths so that cars drive on the left? Does it have anything to do with the left and right flags, because reversing the path direction didn't actually do anything when I tried it. Thanks

I'm pretty sure you would need to make two sets of path nodes set to one-way traffic heading in the direction you want that side of the road to be going. So, for a 2-lane road you would need two sets of nodes placed down the edge of the pavement, with the inner sides set to 1-lane traffic and the outer sides set to 0-lane traffic. You could not run two sets of nodes down the middle because external nodes which are in the same position automatically link to each other, so you could end up with cars doing U-turns in the middle of the street. Junctions would be very complicated so that all the lanes could only make legal turns into, out of and across the junction.

It is possible using this method but would be a lot of work. This is partly why I havn't made path nodes for Curveshire because it would be a huge amount of work, especially at the big motorway junctions. Also, if the landscape changes then there would be twice as many nodes to move to the new surface.
