Abteibruecke (Cloister Bridge) by DocRorlach WMP Logo

Suggested originally by Paeng of SimPeg fame, the Abteibruecke (Cloister Bridge) was Berlin's first reinforced concrete span bridge and opened in 1916 as a pedestrian connection over the river Spree to a small island which has served various recreactional purposes over the centuries.

Our bridge can span up to three tiles, and its walkway is 9m above the ground level, sufficient to cross a ground highway or avenue, or even a narrow gorge or river. Naturally, the bridge is eye-candy only. I've taken some liberties with the original: instead of sweeping ramps we added steps on both sides. Also, the span is shorter than the real bridge, by approximately 30%. The companion building next to the actual overpass has been ommitted altogether.

While the bridge can sit on level ground, its foundation was designed for raised terrain. That said, the terrain tiles on either end should be level for best placement. There are two bridges included: one with a wooden, pier-like foundation for ploppable water or river banks; and one with a concrete foundation for more urban usage, featuring a slightly darker concrete fa├žade.

Manual Installations: If you are using the DIC (Download & Installation Catalogue) manual installations are easy. If not, unpack the ZIP archive into your (My) Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins Folder. We recommend creating a WorkingMan folder befoehand if it does not exist and using that as the installation folder.

Un-Installing: To un-install the files, simply bulldoze every lot from this download in your cities and delete the files from the plugins folder afterwards.


To ensure the proper functionality, make sure the files mentioned below are installed in the plugins folder.

Notes about Nightlighting Effects
In order to see the nightlighting, you must install the EP1-Update 1 for Rush Hour/Sim City 4 Deluxe, and then afterwards, install the SC4-Update for nightlighting (note: you have to be logged in in order to see the download link). If this update isn't installed, you won't see any lighting effects on custom BAT buildings.

The usage of this download is on your own risk. We do test our lots and of course use them ourselves, so they should work properly, but errors may still exist. Feel free to modify the lots for yourself and show them in your city journals, but you cannot distribute them in any manner or form. You certainly cannot upload them to fan sites or file exchanges.

All ZIP archives and the files they contain have been checked for virus infections and are clean.

Thanks to Paeng for suggesting the idea in the first place; to the gang at SimPeg for their vigilance and suggestions; and to Dave (djp) for his patience with testing everything on this site.
If you have problems with this lot it is most likely that you did not download all the dependencies or - just as likely - that we made a mistake. You can contact us via email at comments@workingman-productions.co.uk. Best include a screen-shot illustrating the problem.
