Actually Underground ( and Water ) Power Cables by Populous

The first underground electric power cable of it's kind can now be used to carry power underwater as well as across land. Underground Power Cables can be placed nearly anywhere without distracting from the look of your city

Yes, absolutely, Thumbnail included for easy identification from the menu system

Improved game performance by having the smallest file size of any asset of it's type.
After Dark Friendly: Yes
Snowfall: Yes
Natural Disaster: Yes
Land and Water Friendly: Yes (Rising and lowering tide, may wash them out)
Movable: Yes
Will no wind cause black outs: No

For deep water and fast current, you may find these helpful:

"Water Buoy" ( )

"3MW Wave Generator" ( )

Cost 100
Maintenance Cost 0 ***
All Pollutions 0
Water/Sewage 0

*** Updated 5/28/2017: Maintenance Cost set to zero after realizing Maintenance in this case was replacement.
*** Updated 10/1/2020: Maintenance Cost set to x pounds in some countries through game code..
*** Updated 10/1/2020: Glitched associating the wrong file in update and the scurge of using this game.
- NOTE: Those that did not save over the working save (that would be nuts) are fine.
*** Updated 10/1/2020: Last update tests good. Public reports working...

I am absolutely positive you will enjoy this mod

NOTICE: On 10/1/2020 the game associated another asset to an update... THIS BROKE THIS ASSET. IT SHOULD BE FIXED NOW. SOMEBODY please tell me if it is actually working now.

MSergiu just bulldoze and they are gone.

You can see them under Electricity and thank you I will try it

Switch to the "electricity spread" mode, so that you can see where they are. Then bulldoze them.
MSergiu Oct 20 @ 12:05pm 
How can I bulldoze those lines?

Wait... Doc_Chopper... I remember your name. You and LittleMikey are the first modders back in the day 2015 to really inspire me to build assets clean as I could if I remember correctly your roundabouts with trees and clean work.

Doc_Chopper, I agree. I should not interfere with other underground, but it does with above ground as in under... ground. Yours, mine, and our logic is limited to game code which limits our desires for logic... Wait... sorry no... even if I set ground offset it does the same.

The idea is great. One potent flaw though. It shouldn't interfere with other underground lines. And above all not with ANYTHING ABOVE GROUND! I mean it is "underground" after all. :steamfacepalm:o.O
