 Additionally, we will be looking to identify roads that may need to be divided, for better navigation.   == Welcome to Boston! == [[File:BostonMapRaid.png|700px|center]] Ask anyone from Boston and they will confirm that the universe does indeed orbit around the city. [[File:MA_regions.png|200px|thumb|right|MA Regions]]However, this raid encompasses a large chunk of the Eastern MA Metro area. So it's only fair to familiarize you with the area. Massachusetts is broken up in several informal regions. The raid area will cover several of these regions: South Shore, North Shore, Boston, Brockton, Metro South/West and Metro North. There is some overlap into neighboring areas. [[File:Boston_Neighborhoods.jpg|200px|thumb|left|Boston Neighborhoods]]Boston itself is broken up into several distinct neighborhoods. Historically these were self-identified ethnic areas. (for instance, the Irish lived in the South End, the Italians in the North End, etc.) Each neighborhood has it's own distinct personality and flavor. Some other important Boston items to remember: '''Chowdah''' -The only proper way to make clam chowder involves cream. Red sauce is best left to Italian food! '''Bean Town''' -Ancient nickname for Boston. Not widely used any longer Using it marks you immediately as a tourist from the midwest. '''The Accent''' -Either you have it or you don't. And we don't "pahk the cah in the hahvahd yahd." Although, at times, "the weathah heah is wicked bzah". '''Wicked''' - This word is used as a modifier. In order to use it correctly, it must be followed by an adjective. "That club was wicked" is incorrect, and pegs you immediately as a tourist from the Midwest. It does ''NOT'' mean evil or bad.

'''Close nodes''' - We make use of the "micro-dogleg" technique, where a geometry node is carefully placed, at full zoom, directly next to a junction node, in order to set the angle to create a desired Turn/Stay/Exit prompt. Please watch for these if you move any junction node, and be sure to recreate the same angle at the new location.
'''Clam Chowder''' - The only proper way to make clam chowder involves cream. Red sauce is best left to Italian food!
'''Bean Town''' - Ancient nickname for Boston. Not widely used any longer.
'''Wicked''' - This word is used as a modifier. In order to use it correctly, it must be followed by an adjective. "That club was wicked" is incorrect, and pegs you immediately as a tourist. And that's a wicked piss-ah. It does NOT mean evil or bad. ==Local Guidance==  === City/town Naming ===
