Powerline tools missing ?!
« on: December 20, 2011, 07:31:06 PM »
Hi guys,

I need to ask a very stupid question about powerlines. As I have read in the guide about electricity, I should have tools to build them, but I only have the tools to remove powerlines and put a transformer. ( see attachment to this post )

Where are the buttons to place lines ?!
Are they appearing at a particular year, and the buttons I see is a bug ?

I am running 111, installed with download ( not online installer ) with pak64 and food addon, set to German.


Thanks for your help.

Thanks for explaining ! And so fast. :)

Yes, I started with epoche in 1880 or so, and now it's 1894. It is a bit confusing, though, that my map already has a power plant, and I can also build a transformer, while powerlines are not yet...invented. :) Does game mechanic not allow to hide the transformer, oh come to think of it, and the "remove powerline" tool as well, until that technology is actually available ?

Note: You can also build them before their intro date with the keyboard shortcut, lowercase letter "l" in case you badly want power. They appear in the menu in 1900 if I recall.

These tools are always visible.

This could be a bug ...

Just forgot to submit the patch for pak64. Powerlines had default date of 1900.
