This is a hypothetical adaptation of Mekarski trams as inclined, historical funiculars for the game. Asset is actually made as a part of historic funicular network of Montmartre Funicular, located in Paris.

The idea was to provide a generic, historical funicular to people who've been asking quite some time now.

It has TWO funiculars in the set. Read the rest of the description.

Guide to make funicular networks:

Technical Details

  • Second funicular of Cities Skylines
  • Maximum operation speed: 20kmh
  • 1024 textures
  • Fully mapped
  • 30 passenger capacity (real life value)
  • Custom LOD

Operational Notes and Compatibility

1. Package contains 2 funiculars that are inclined and mirrored. Since game spawns vehichles with random directions; assign positive and negative inclined vehicles on the same lane by using IPT2 (Improved Public Transport). Then, see which one is looking wrong and remove that variant from the line.

2. Use AVO (Advanced Vehicle Editor) to disable funiculars from spawning regional lines. So they wont be used by the game for outside network.

3. Vehicles are compatible with all existing funicular networks and stations. Standard funicular tracks allows to use multiple funiculars on the same network.


Mékarski, who is the original modeler of single decker tram
Alex, who recreated the model after 100 years,
Geze, who made it into double decker tram version,
REV0, for modifying double decker tram into single decker inclined funicular.

Bugger... I'm inpatient... Sorry. But that solves two issues at the same time!
Thanks for your time and payience. I have AVO and i will certainly look into that disabling option. It's wonderful!

(Having said that... it must look great, that little pernicular "train" running 500 km/h :))

Asset tags on the right side of the page already indicate that it's a train, so I assume it's a train, yes. If you used funicular network before, you should also know it's based on train network because it was the most convenient.

In addition to this, I already explained in the description that you should use Advanced Vehicle Options mod in order to disable it from regional random spawning because of exact issue you mentioned.

Any vehicle that is disabled in AVO can be assigned/spawned to custom train lines, which is how you should use any funicular vehicle.

Can you tell us... if this vehicle is treated as a train... Will it span on train tracks as a random train as well, after being downloaded? That's what usually happens and the game doesn't allow to block specific models even with lower speed limits (as in vehicles of a certain max speed below ... say 50km/h cannot enter this track - simply doesn't exist in the game which is a shame)... I wouldn't like to adjust this model to a speed of 300 km/h running like a headless chicken around my city from one outside connection to another, in order it didn't block other high speed trains :)

Great job! What is the station on the first screen shot? It looks like the station for this vintage funicular. Do you have a plan release that station?
