Welcome to Me and The Roads, the Java road-building game. If you've ever wished you could run a transportation department and make the highways go where you want, this is the closest you'll get to doing it.

You'll be in charge of highway planning for Lingwoo, a new 240-square mile island of about 15 small towns. Your tools are:
- electronic road map of the island, with pan and zoom
- highway log (inventory and routing of all numbered highways)
- intersection viewer (3-D perspective view of any intersection)
- rename tool (renumber any highway, rename any street or town)
- paver (pave new roads or tear up existing ones)

In this version of the game, time and money are in infinite supply. There's no "object" yet; just rework the highway system until it's perfect, or you get tired of playing. Lingwoo comes up different every time you play, providing new challenges and starting points.

You don't start with a blank slate. Lingwoo's previous highway planner paved about 200 miles of roads, with about a dozen numbered routes. However, as you'll see, the network doesn't serve the towns as well as it should. That's why your predecessor is dusting off his resume, and you're in control.

Have fun!
