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:

T=========T=========T

If you place the substation over existing lines, you will get this:

T=========TTSSSSSST=T

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:

T=========T=SSSSSS==T

I hope you like these, and I welcome your feedback.

      SM2 Trash and Burn.
      A massive garbage handling facility but also a power generating station. (waste to energy)
      Here the trash is incinerated and the heath generated by the furnaces is used to create steam which in turn runs in to a turbine generator thus creating energy.
      Lot size 10X6
      Handling capacity 50,000 tons per month.
      Power generated at peak 6,500
      Plop cost 7500
      Power used 8
      Water used 60
      Note - It can be used stand alone or in conjunction with SM2 Trash Dumper. The base textures are a match. If you wish to do so then refer to the picture included in this zip.

      Tariel-Kazuki Street Stalls v1 & v2
       
      I recenty uploaded the lost original, which I have been using liberally for years. With some problems, though, that I thought would be nice to save new users from, like missing props ; also, the pieces were not lighted, which is my personal bugaboo. Last but not least, I would have liked the v2 pieces to have some indication of direction, therefore I added some SPOT arrows in my relot.
      So here is a new version of Kazuki’s lots, trying to solve those little problems. I just licked them up and lit them and gave them new menu icons. All Hail goes to Kazuki for making them in the first place.
      You don’t need the original but it’s here.
      Those are neutral lots, eyecandy only.

      So I am having this weird power issue and I couldn't find anything describing this out there.  This particular city tile had one Natural Gas Power Plant and 4 or 5 Wind Plants (both were the Maxis versions).  I also have an ordnance mod installed that gave me the option to run an entire city off just one windmill plant and provide enough water through one water pump.  Despite all these plants I can't keep anything in the city powered and it seems the reason is because my power budget is constantly set to near zero dollars.  I'll raise it all the way up, everything will be powered and then after a month or two running the simulation the power budget resets back to zero and everything goes dark again.
      I recently just deleted all the power plants and turned off the ordnance mod and ran the simulation to see if that helped and I am still getting the auto reset every time I press play.  I'm not sure what else to do.  The entire city is abandoned now.

      Thanks for any help you may have.
