About MATR

Me and The Roads (MATR) was a 1999 response to many road enthusiasts (including me) looking for a good road network simulation game. SimCity 4 was a strong city-building game, but the roadway options were nowhere near as good as we wanted. Mapping and signage, for example, were nonexistent.

I had a lot of ambitious goals for MATR, but a lot of other priorities pushed it down to where it languished for more than a decade. Still, it's an interesting project, and in 2014 I brought it back to life, updated the code, and hosted it on github.

I've been writing some version of MATR since I was a kid. Here are the earlier versions (none of them available anymore):
