I played a game on test server #77, which is APHID CB 7.5k with lots of demands of the city: water, food, passengers, mail, goods, gold. I delivered them using two-platform stations and ships - see legend in right-bottom corner of attached screenshot. I made a spiral also. I was not able to make an ideal spiral, but I think I've done it quite good. I've never made a loop. However, I've got high CS.

@dP and Saber: Please advice what I did wrong.

Edit: Sorry for writting another post after my post.

It's hard to say by screenshot, by your roads probably weren't long enough. As you also get cs when town reaches dead end, so you need you roads to continue far enough (at least 5 tiles after last house). You can see where exactly cs are happening if you enable "town growth tiles" in zoning toolbar (don't remember if btpro client has it but citymania one has for sure). Also read Advanced town growth , it explains things a bit.

Btw you can also do transfers and move some stations further out as town grows. This is what I did in same gamemode for example (it's half-finished but whatever).

Five tiles after last house + zoning to see CS = great advice :) Thanks!
