Now I stopped modding for a while and decided to "play" the game.
I forgot how additcing it was.
While working on my city, I decided to a bit vertical and build a residential zone on a hill. The main type of transportation is currently trams, going to the local train station and cims are being distributed to the rest of the city. Railwhales are pretty good handling the high amount of cims and their train variants are hauling cims to the main station or nearby stations connected to metro networks.
The concept is working but I intend to improve it, thus this idea came up.
The main issue with trams is the fact that they do not cover the same zone as metro network. Trams works fine on a street level, but when you want to deliver "transport" to a small district, they fail, even if you create walkways between streets and through apartments to increase the accesibility.
Metro does that well. You can transport crapload of people between districts and since it's underground there's no traffic. I like metro because of this. The problem with metro though, just like train stations, you can't build them on slope. Even if you do, they will look weird just like below (ignore the budget, free public transportatin is killing it)
So that's where this idea came in; funicular.
Funiculars are basically sloped trains or metros, consider how you will. While they are not widely popular around the world, they still have use. I live in a country which most of the cities are built around hills and thus we use funiculars a lot. There are 2 cases I'd like to talk about:
1. Istanbul, where funicular is still used but somewhat integrated into metro network.
2. Lausanne, where funicular line is upgraded into Metro network. So while the system is currently a metro network (with metro cars and all that, it actually operates on old funicular line)
I know that it's imposible to build slope train stations (smh), but stops can be added on sloped roads if it's bus or a tram station. So 2 possiblity comes to mind:
a. Create a new road connection (just like tram only roads) call them funicular line. Since they are roads, stops can be added on sloped terrain. There will 3 issues to settle:
1. Underground stops
2. Adding proper stations
3. Giving them same coverage as metros
b. Use existing metro network. This one is better but a bit hairy because of:
1. Will require MOM mod. So it will not be compatible with existing cities or will require to destroy metro tunnels and rebuild (some issue I had in my playthrough, they clip the terrain when there are too close to the ground level)
2. Will require underground metro depots for funiculars.
3. New stations will have to be made, which they wont be long default stations but much shorter so it won't look weird on sloped terrain. (4 or 5 units long perhaps)
4. I don't usually care how tracks look like so current MOM style would be fine. Cars have to be modeled, obviously.
Well, it seems Ive finally tried the impossible. Ive always lived in hilly areas and it is very, very common to have roads/streets/rail what have you cross each other.
I used the land bridge mod to create the bridge but cannot find any way to get a road/avenue/highway to plop (is that the right word?) under the bridge tile. My searching has revealed either it doesn't exist or it doesn't exist. I found a reference to a Japanese mod for under bridge extenders but the site redirects to dead locations.
Does anyone know how to do this or where to find extenders? Or how to build roads under land bridges? I see there are tons of extenders for other items...just no roadways.
Thanks in advance,
