About This File
Just some eye candy for your cities. I've created 4 sizes of substations from XL to Small. They don't "do" anything in the game, other than sit there and (hopefully) look nice. They do have a slight negative effect -- nothing drastic.
These will appear in your power menu. I've also learned how to drag power lines across these, which gives the illusion that the lines from the in-game standard high-voltage towers actually connect to the substations, as long as you have them lined up with the steel poles in the substations which have the insulators on them. In my crude diagram, where S is the substation and T is the towers, = are the lines:
If you place the substation over existing lines, you will get this:
I bulldoze the towers immediately next to the substation (though not necessary), and then, starting with the left-most tower (can be any tower that is not the closest to the substation), begin to drag powerlines across once again, over the middle tower and all the way to the tower on the right. What will result is this:
I hope you like these, and I welcome your feedback.
