About This File

This set of lots and props belongs in what I like to call the “marrast” genre (category) as he was the 1st person (to my knowledge) to develop walls (his embankment set) using this design approach. Jeronij’s SeawallsV4 are also in this genre but take a slightly different approach in their lot orientation and placement. Both are premier creations (IMO).
My seawalls use the same orientation and placement approach as marrast’s with slightly different geometry as follows:
1. The walkway and the sloped stone wallare the same width on all pieces (16 meters) regardless of their orientation (orthogonal or diagonal).
2. All corners are rounded. The walls on the water side and the walkways on the land side.

Please read the readme file.

Key Information:

1. There are 14 lots located at the bottom of your Seaport menu.
2. All lots have minimal Landmark and Park effect. (5 over 5 tiles).
3. Plop Cost = $20, Monthly Budget Amount = $5.
4. There are special considerations when placing the lots. The terrain must be carefully prepared beforehand so that the lots line up perfectly (the road or street dot comes in very handy here) … if you have problems, please see the thread:

Note: I know this is the Sunken Highway Walls thread … that’s how it originally started. I simply did the seawalls in between starting and finishing the highway walls. If you want to know the whyfore, it’s in the thread. I won’t bore you here.

I’d like give special thanks to the following people:
JBSimio for creating the custom query. I think he did a great job. Much appreciated.
Andreas Roth for helping JBSimio when he got stuck on a technical problem.
Odd from Sweden for helping me with UV mapping the textures.
Everyone who commented and advised in the BAT - Open Discussion thread.

Dependencies: Simgoobers FloralPackVol3.

To Install:
Place the .dat files(2) and the lot files(14) in your /My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins directory.

To Uninstall:
Remove the files from your /My Documents/SimCity 4/Plugins directory.

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      Textures and detail work on this, particularly the rooftop patio and pool areas, are really great, and give this BAT lots of life.

      Apartment buildings have long been on my list to tackle BATting, just to add to the variety and compete with all the repetitive Maxis stuff.  With contributions like this, though, I feel like it wouldn't be worth my time, because mattb325 has them covered and done so very, very, very well.  Always a joy to see stuff like this on the STEX.

      A great addition to custom content.  Still goin' strong after all these years, mattb325 continues to amaze me.

      Definitely not the Minocqua, Wisconsin I've known through my life, but nice map anyhow. I do the same with cities if I can't think of a name, I just use something I know.

      Nice BAT, would give 5/5, but attention here, folks!!! The Seaview Apartments model in this download has the same IID as the Cast Iron Lofts model from Don Miguel! So it won't grow the way it should! Needs to be corrected by hand!

    • The front of it is pretty much identical to "Cooley Law Stadium" (what Oldsmobile/Lugnuts Stadium is called these days) in Lansing, MI

    • I know it's sized 2x1, but what kind of residential do I need to zone for this to grow? Light, medium, or high density? Or does it not matter? Anyone who can answer I appreciate it.
    • Love your work, but since a handful of files now from different users require offsite files that link to dead links I wish it was a rule here that all dependencies should be on site somehow. Thanks for the reup of the files...
    • I'm still working on the Maxis Vanilla tilesets presentation, but yeah its endless how many amazing artists have contributed to the SC4 repository over the past 14 years.  The problem with the tilesets and with RCI is that there's too much repetition.   I'm going to use for the first time a Maxis blocker that will eliminate all vanilla repetition and reveal whatever user created programming defines.  However, my project is not specific to agriculture.   We'll get back to that later.
