Hello all! Would you like to know, how to buil those fancy-looking buildings with tunells and stuff? No problem, you can build many original srtructures by using this tutorial. I will share with you my know-how, but be careful = this technique is a little bit dangerous, so follow this tutorial.
What you can build? There are some examples:
Mods, that you need:
Pharmist water road pack or wooden bridge: download (big thanks to joues for alternative upload, white button next to blue for download)
water plazas from g-c download
Montoto´s decorative arch download
Small collision box mod download (you need UIM)
some plaza, which dasn´t terraform and is small : some of ower water plazazas download
WARNING: Use these plazas. By using some large plaza you can overload your CPU!
1.Choose area, where you want to build. This place must be flat and enough large. Area must be bigger than finnal building.
2.Now place one arch. It is use only for better assessment of hight second level of building.
or place some building, which will be used like first level base.
3.Use wooden water bridge by Pharmist (or water roads) to crate level of second building layer(use shift to select hight of the bridge). Select all area, where you can build.The hight must be a little bit smaller than arch´s hight.
4.Delete arch or buildings and by using large plaza or dig area tool fill area enclosed by wooden bridge.
5.Delete plaza and roads(wooden bridge)
6.Build top level of buildings- use small collision box buildings! (choose buildings, which you want, but not every building is suitable. You can choose buildings, which you can see in the pictures, these are fine)
Be careful, how you place buildings- Red points to connect should be outwards.
You can see, that in this tutorial I am building 4 buildings.
First: Arcade building with central square
Second: Small easy building from T3 office
Third: Big palace with Art Museum
Fourth: church experiment
7.Place water plaza under buildings
It should looks like this.
8.In arcade building you can make tunels from archs under building.
9.Now is time to build bottom layer of buildings. It is not easy to place building on right place. Be careful, where you have connect red points.
10.If you placed all building from bottom layer, you can place archs around buildings and where you want
Do not forget place archs aroun central square in arcade building
11. Now palce building where you doesn´t place archs
12. Place roads around buildings to connect. Some building may be not connecte, so you will need to place road trought the building, but it is easy, beacause buildings have small collision box.
14. Place small plaza under building
Done! Enjoy your new structures.
