    How about some examples on "real" roads?
    I find that the main problem with roads is more that the markings vary all the time, and then you have crossings, roundabouts etc. Not to mention the normal wear and hole-patching.

    That's the neat thing about my approach. Since I have a mask for where the markings are, I can have a high-res asphalt base thing tiling a little, and then a UV-mapped mask for the markings, without getting prohibitly high resolution.
    Are my spline guides showing?

    Any examples showing how it looks when applied?
    How would you handle the worn/dirty/ stripes from the wheels? Weight maps maybe?

    Weight maps, image maps, procedurals... anything with a scalar output!

    Nice work Cap'n. Can we see it applied? To something, well, flat and long ?

    And winding - with crossroads, curves, roundabouts etc?
    I hate making roads with markings, so I could definitely need a node based versatile version

    Captain, asphalt (or better, road) is one of the trickiest things to do well effectively.
    When i dont use front projection, i have a complex rig too which includes a Wmap to give asphalt a darker color near road's sides, and to make those "clean stripes" along the road. If you ever find a setup which does all this automatically, you're a God
