This is an idea how you can build a working elevated tram system
What you need:
Pedestrian Paths By Uokiok V1.1
Low Bridges for the NEXL Tram 2.1
NEXL - Trams
What I recommend to use additionally:
rural road (bridges) by Alex24
Bridge Pack by Nicko2u
Monty's bridge pack
Modern cable stayed bridge by Monty
PCJ's Concrete Arched Bridges
PJCs European Bridge Pack
aitortilla01's bridge pack
Wall Collection by Eano
bench, lamp, trash mod by jrvieux
Everything else what YOU need to build a beautiful elevated Tram system
At first you need to know, that it will take some time to build a perfect/beautiful station without any "bugs"
this station took about 90-120 minutes to build:

But we have time, so lets start... :bigsmile:
At first build a street, tramway or whatever you want at groundlevel:
Then choose a 30m bridge you like (you can also use a 15m bridge) and built it at a "middle" height as shown in the picture below across the street:
That will be our elevated tram station.
After that select uokioks pedestrian bridges (10m or 15m) and connect the bridge to the ground:
Then connect all pedestrian paths, it will mess up your bridge but thats ok
If you wish to have stairs, update the pedestrian paths NOW, or it will mess up your bridge again
After that delete your bridge
Build your bridge again CAREFULLY. It has to be even/smooth
Delete the parts of the bridge you dont need and update the bridge to "wide paved tram line" (or if you use a 15m to "simple tram line")
Then select a 15m bridge you like and build the elevated-tram-treck
You may have noticed that you can see through the bridge pillars
I could not find a way to avoid this bug so my clue is to use Eano's Wall Collection
If you like you can add some custom furniture like benches, a metro-interchange or an "elevator". Be creative!
Now build your elevated tram system, you can also build turnouts
And update the bridges to "simple tram line", "wide paved tram line" or whatever you wish to have
Once your elevated tram system is complete, build a tram-terminal and create a tram-line
So be creative and hopefully we will se some beautiful elevated tram systems soon
here some examples (i know its a ugly city, just build it for tutorial purposes ):
And a video made by es168, thanks
Here is a clue by pepino. Thank you
Thanks to a large donation we are covered this month and next month. Ad money should be sent by then to cover a further two months.Dismiss Notice
I would like to see us always have at least a months worth in advance but that will mean constant donations. Seems we are not as busy as we were years ago so guess it's the main reason for low donations.
Hope you all are keeping safe
