Ploppables Power Lines Pack 1.0

Decorative Power Lines in 4 styles using the Bridge Placement Code CXXL compatable

    This is a set of 4 different Power line styles that you can place in your cities. These power lines are decorative only. They are actually road bridges in disguise and are placed in the same way as you would place a road bridge. They are no collision and can be placed anywhere , however they are some limitations to placement near road junctions as it is using the bridge placement code.

    Please note the High Voltage Pylon Model has a very high triangle count and like all bridges is only 1 Lod. If you place this model in significant numbers it will have an adverse effect on game performance. I tried to model it with transparency but the pylons dissappear when you zoom out. Therefore the whole pylon is modeled in 3d with a significant performance hit as a result. The other models are all fine with triangles counts comparable to all the custom bridges released recently.

    Placement Notes:
    Place your entire power line in one go , but use segments when encountering changes in elevation , so that that each pylon stays anchored to the ground.
    The single pole Power lines can be snapped to go along pavements of the larger roads and avenues. Start the power line at a T junction and simply run it along the road and it will snap into place.
    The Power lines have excessive height to them so you can make them go over T1 buildings. They are not high enough to go over T2 or T3 buildings.
    Power lines of different styles can cross each other provided they are significantly different in height. Use the shift key when placing to change the height.

    This is good for cities that still use wires like this.
