View Full Version : Tunnels
10th Aug 2007, 08:42 PM
Is there any way to create an underground tunnel in the game? I don't mean a tunnel under a house, I mean a tunnel that is completely underground. Is there any way to accomplish this?

Nope, well, you could use terrain floor tiles to create a mountain, and then create a dummy level...it would get really confusing.

Where could I find the details on the very confusing? I've got my heart set on a connecting tunnel between my main building and an outbuilding. Thanks for the response.

Do you mean under a mountain or form of [fake] terrain?
Or do you mean that you want an under ground hallway? :/

I'd really like an underground hallway, but under a mountain or fake terrain would work as well. Thanks for the link, plasticbox, I'm trying to use the slope cover up to do it. Can you show me how to tunnel under a mountain or use fake terrain, poplers?

Sadly for me, the interesting slope cover up fencing is unavailable to me due to the fact that I haven't sprung for any of the expansion packs. Maybe I should, I've certainly waited long enough. Guess I'll have to tunnel under a mountain or use fake terrain. How does that work?

Well, this is a rough tutorial, I'll get around to adding pictures some other time:
Assuming you have the correct content (I.E. terrain floor tiles, anything else)
1.Build a 1st floor dummy level (4 clicks high) on top of the 1st level, make another dummy level, but have a section jutting out, that will be the entranceway to the tunnel.
2.Go down to the ground level, now, where the center of your mountain is is going to be 12 clicks tall (not including the 2nd dummy level, which will then make it 16). So go to the middle of the ground and click down 12 times.
3.Now, go to the surrounding squares directly touching the recently touched floor tiles and go down 8 clicks, then move one more row away, 4 clicks down.
4.Okay, you've got your foundation layed (sp? :P) out, now, with the up clicky tool, go around (not in a pattern) and click to your heart's desire, once happy with the up clicking result, locate the 12 click down squares, and flatten them once more, down click those squares and go up one floor.
5.On the 1st floor, flatten it all out EXCEPT for the 12-clicked down space, once done, go one more floor up, it should have a dip where the 12 clicked squares are located below. Flatten the 2nd floor out.
6.Go to the ground level, flatten that out, return to your top dummy level, it should be 12+ clicks higher, right? If not, redo it all :P.
7.On the space jutting out on the 2nd floor, it should be draped over the 1st dummy level and should still be 4 clicks high (even if slanted) flatten that out, and remove the wall on the edge of the 'mountain' on both the 1st dummy level and the second, you know have your entrance to your tunnel, and the tunnel itself. :D
Well, that's the basic way, pictures might come. If you're lucky. ;)

Thanks. I think I get the basic idea of it. Being lucky might help a bit, though. Pictures are a wonderful thing.

Hmmm it didn't work. Maybe some pictures? I tried it, and fiddled with it, and couldn't get anything to produce a good result. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, I don't know. Thanks for trying to help.

mmhmmm, anytime, I'll post it in a seperate thread. :O
Later, though. lol, sorry, it'll be up by tomorrow. :)
