Default Road Tiles

Playing with the road tiles has me a bit...flustered. Making a 3x3 oval there isn't straight tile to finish the loop. Plenty of north/south, no east/west. Or, I missed it. Also, only 3 of the cooler clipped corners. Maybe there's hope of another set.

If I remember right, you pretty much have to use a three-way for a straight.

The only fit I found was 15a. It will 'work', but would be nice to have some East/West straights in the next set. If there is one of course.

I posted an image for this in the Discord please check that I'm doing the thing you're actually asking but I made a no-crater closed loop with:

1B, 2B, 4A, 5B, 6A, 9A, 10B, 11B, 15B (center)

I mentioned the jigsaw effect would reduce the number of road layouts by a factor of 2 before the KS finished. :(

The road fights are my favourite bit of Car Wars. I hope there is a new (un-jigsawed) pack soon.

Could you just do it Thunder Road-style and take away tiles that aren't needed anymore? What kind of layout do you need that the current tiles don't let you have?

The tiles can be a headache, for sure, and we could REALLY use a 90 rotation on some straights, but I've been able to generate pretty much everything that's been asked. If you have an idea where the assembly is stumping you, let me know and I'll do what I can.
