Is there any argument against making the current milepost object non-colliding? Is it a programming thing, or what? Seems to me doing that would be the most sensible idea. I agree about the gate idea being aesthetically iffy. Milemarkers and signposts are such a natural, easily recognized thing. You never see "gate" structures used for directing or identifying roads outside of modern highways.
I wonder if there's any plans to make the signs that get hung up part of the mileposts graphically? i.e. make different sprites for 1, 2, 3, etc. signs. A really popular crossroads could have a whole mess of arrows poking off of it
As to KoE's idea, that would be pretty good as well. I'd recommend some kind of stone colored sundial-looking image for a marker stone. On a paved road, it would blend right in. On a forest path, it would stand out more.
Basically, i'm cool with anything as long as the whole cart issue is cleared up eventually
