STEP 1*Notice how i deleted some of the plaza that would otherwise interfere with the bridge, making the placing impossible. Don't worry, we will fill the holes later.
Create the train infrastructure by placing simple dummy rail bridges.
Make the "holes" beetwen the 2 rail bridges.
Add edges to your embankment. Depending on how distant they are from the bridge the embarkment will be wider/thinner. This is essential to the process as the decorative grass are won't be placed correctly without it.
Then, place the road beetwen the two rails.
Start placing the plaza of your choice in the middle of the "guide" roads and the bridges. If you want to crate a realistic city, choose the "yellow grass" plaza, if you want to make a futuristic city try the concrete plazas. DO NOT USE THE IN-GAME PLAZAS AS THE EMBANKMENT SLOPES, IT WILL NOT WORK!
The hole left beetwen the two tracks has to be filled up, and to do that youre going to use the"Xsquared's Big Bridge Pack " as the connector bridge. For realism use the big avenue bridge (the one with the metal blue roof like things) and connect the two rail tracks.*
Upgrade the road bridge to a rail bridge. Simple. Just click on the bridge and find the railway upgrade in the menu.
Once youre done you should have something resembling this:
We are completely done with our elevated rail embankment and now all we need to do is decorate it.
The finished product:
I will no longer be hosting XLNation as of March 1, 2017. Skullz613 will be taking the reigns of the site in early 2017 and XLNation will be moving to a new web hosting service.
