Hello Folks,

today's asset is another typical East German school from the early eighties.
This building type marks the peak of East German standardized schools, combining all previous knowledge from its predecessors.

Background info:

The depicted building is a smaller version of the more common 2POS SBR80 Erfurt with only half the student capacity.
The original building I based this asset on can be found in Halle (Saale), Germany and currently holds an elementary school. This building was slightly modified, like the seams between the panels are sealed up, the main entrance was slightly changed and another door was added to the front right corner.
Here is a picture of how the school currently looks, which is also the appearance I recreated in my model:

Schulbaureihe 80 (school series 80) is the name of this school design, with its subversions from Leipzig, Dresden, Berlin, Rostock, Erfurt and a single experimental design built in Weimar.
All sub-versions combined, a total of around 200 schools were built in the years 1980 to 1990.

This design here was created in the city of Erfurt, where the most common East German school designs originated from.
One I already recreated, the "Plattenbau School Type Erfurt double".

The building is primarily made up of standardized prefab panels of the "WBS70"-variety with an increased ceiling height of 3.3 meters.

The "1POS" part of the name indicates the number of classes per individual grade, so one full 30-student classes per grade 2, 3, 4 and so on.
POS, in this case, is not the abbreviation for a common English insult, but instead for "Polytechnische Oberschule" (polytechnic secondary school), so a school mostly focused on technic related subjects.

This building usually has a second entrance on the left side which is slightly submerged into the ground, and reachable via stairs. I deliberately chose not to recreate this, as the game really isn't really made for this kind of detail. Even without this detail, I think the school still retains its original look.


The school can be found under its name "ERF 1POS SBR80 No.1" or alternatively by searching for "Plattenbau".
For this version/color scheme there is no color-mapping as of now.
The whole plot is 8x6 in size.
Some of the shown props like the benches and bicycle stands are part of the asset, the rest like the fence, vegetation and the trash bins are not.
360 high school students can attend this school, the stats are the same as the vanilla high school just multiplied by 1.2 to be proportional to the increased student count.

If you want a suitable sports hall, there's a small and large version in my workshop.

Erstmal danke für das nette Feedback!

Um das PH16 kann ich mich gerne Kümmern, nur wird das erstmal noch weit hinten in meiner to-do Liste stehen, da viele Projekte (wie Industriebauten, sanierte P2-5 und einige Reworks älterer Assets) weiter vorne in der Schlange stehen.

Für die PH16 bräuchte Ich vorallem gute Referenzbilder, z.b. von Eingängen und Treppenhaus-Außenwänden, vorallem halt Bilder vom Erdgeschoss. (Idealerweise in unsaniert)
Wenn du also bereit wärst, mir solche Bilder zu machen und sie mir per Steam/Discord/Twitter zu schicken kann ich mich natürlich um einiges schneller um das Projekt kümmern ;)

Very nicely done! The school building its self reminds me of the many 'generic' concrete and brick schools we have in my area in eastern US. I suppose this was the thing in the late 70s and into the mid-80s and not just in Eastern Germany.
