Return to main : Second Life Road Network Directory
An extensive network of roads exists on Heterocera, and this page deals so far primarily with the new construction within the northern section of the continent.
The maps present here are initial construction maps and may differ slightly from what is on the ground until such time as fresh mapping can be obtained.
The following descriptions break this network down into a number of distinct routes.
Roads of Heterocera
- Route 1 (East-West Heterocera Link Road)
- Route 2 (North Heterocera Coast Road)
- Route 3 (North Heterocera Inland Link)
- Route 4
- Route 5 (Coastal Byway)
- Route 6 (The High Mountain Road)
The following numbers are road distance measurements, in km. Maximum estimated error is 5%. It is important to know that almost all roads of this continent have names and some have numbers. There still are a few unnamed roads.

As seen in this database, Heterocera has the largest road network on the grid, 80.66 km. This is comparable with Corsica, Gaeta 5, Nautilus and Satori together. If we add the total railway length, we get over 100 km. From all continents, Heterocera is the most populated continent. Many studies show that, like in real world, there is a strict corelation between population density and infrastructure. Not many people will feel confortable to settle on a hill without a road, a railway or a waterway nearby.
