I would like help from an engineering point of view, applied to SC4 obviously.
I am working on a very big project that involves some radical thinking... I make full use of SC4 and Mods, lots of mods, to create the largest city of a country set in the fictional world of a book I'm writing.
Thing is... Because I fell in love with natural growth style of play, I started the city as a tribal settlement... some 800 years before the nowadays milestone. I faced many challenges and many more awaits me. But one in particular I can't get my head around not even searching the internet. Can you help?
Here's the question:
How can (if at all) I raise the level of a big canal from sunken to say a 8-10 metre elevation so that it's not sunken anymore?
Here's the picture:
Bita Canal starts from Branny Bay Reservoir, less than a km South, where the Vidupe Aqueduct finally ends and brings its water supply. The Reservoir water level is carefully controlled so that water flows nicely to various locations in the area, with the use of a canal system which is still under development. The water level of the Reservoir can be raised as water supply is still abundant and the first portion of the canal system is sunken (an engineering decision also to deal with flooding).
Local developers need Bita Canal to proceed North to Fadalipe Citadel to bring water to the masses, but excavating a sunken canal right inside a densely populated area is advised against. Another proposal is the development of a network of sewers, but public opinion votes for an open canal to stream fresh water, and we can build that sewage for the waste water. Frankly, the Council agress with public opinion and we would much rather prefer a nice tight canal with fresh water that streams right past people's homes so that in future they can take that pleasing stroll by the canal and socialize.
So. If possible, how can developers elevate Bita sunken canal?
If you have the straight answer to this engineering question then please post a reply. I would definetely appreciate the help and participation.
In case you don't but you have some other idea, please post a reply too. I like ideas. If I can't use them straight away I put them in a labeled drawer for later use.
For now, Fadalipe developers will push for a simple sunken canal that ends in a reservoir close to the city, so people can have access to new fresh water, as supply was running low.
There is also a poll for you to vote for, if you fancy. (I saw some CJers use it and I thought it would be fun to try) I will consider the result and find the best possible engineering solution to accommodate it.
Thank you in advance
Let me know if this is the wrong section to post this. If needed I can post it somewhere else.
(You can find the City Journal here:)
The Peace and Recovery post does contain some photos of the aqueducts and their projects. Maybe it can help ignite ideas.
A Norfolk Southern GE EVO pulls its load by Hawley & Sons Manufacturing Co. on a gloomy, rainy afternoon. This locale of Pawtucket Mills has seen better days, but the factories around here still produce mechanical equipment for use in other industrial applications. While many industries have switched to ship their freight by truck, these plants still proudly send out the bulk of their product over rail, as evidenced by the active sidings and railyard.

i was wondering if anyone can help me out figuring this one out (or if it is even possible in the lot editor).
thank you guys for any help you can provide me.
