Hello Folks,

for today I only a small release for you, which should bridge the gap till my next big upload. A 24 meter tall street lantern with twelve yellow-shining light bulbs in it, unique to Halle (Saale).
Around 30 of these street lights were built more than half a decade ago. So these obviously fit very well with (former) East German cities, or soviet cities in general.
They obviously fit really well with my "Plattenbau" assets, but should also fit any other type of city.
Just as they can be the focal point of any big intersection, they can also be used as flood lights to light up industrial areas.

For a more common East German street light, check this one I release some time ago.

Background info:

This street light design with a triangular footprint was only built in Halle (Saale), and only next to the biggest intersections and avenues, most notably around the "Riebeckplatz" and along the "Magistrale", or "Hochstraße".
The latter serves as the direct connection between Halle's oldtown and the biggest "Plattenbau"-District and former standalone city, Halle-Neustadt.
Only two of the original 34 lights had to be removed, all others still stand to this day, although with renewed lamps. These 24 meter tall behemoths are pretty difficult to service, so camera drones are used to check the condition of these lanterns.


The street light can be found under its name "DDR street light HAL-24m No.1" or alternatively by searching for "East German".
The whole metal surface is color-mapped and can be recolored. The standard color when plopped down is light blue, just like the original.
If you want to replace your road's street lights with these ones, I suggest using the "Network Skins mod".
You can also just place them manually, like any normal prop.
