About This File

A set of red & green Navigation Buoys for your CDK3-SP seaport complexes... styled after buoys commonly found in many harbors and channels. These buoys are nite-lited and include subtle, background sound effects.

The buoys are simple 1x1 lots that can be plopped in any depth of water. They include anchor chains, which are only visible in shallower water.

Each buoy costs only §5 to plop and has no monthly maintenance costs. The buoys are solar (self) powered and do not require proximity to shore or other power sources in order for the nite lites to function.

* For realistic placement in-game, (in the northern hemisphere) remember the old mariner phrase "Red Right Returning". Red buoys should be on the starboard (right) side of ships returning to port. If there was ever a similar old phrase, "Red Left Leaving", the poor smuck who coined it most likely took it to the grave when, utterly confused,he piled his ship up on the rocks.

Just to confuse things even more, because the southern hemisphere is up-side down...   the red buoys are on the left coming into port and the green are on the right.

User Feedback

Please note: The International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) is the international organization that defines these types of navigational aids. Oddly though, they have defined two separate systems that contradict each other.

System B ("Red Right Returning") is the system used in North America, South America, the Philippines, Japan and Korea. Red buoys on the right. System A ("Is there any Port Wine Left?") is the system used in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, parts of Africa and most of Asia other than the Philippines, Japan and Korea. Red buoys on the left.

Peg, I don't know which I like better, your descriptions or your work itself. Even on seemingly simple tasks your level of detail and perfection are unmatched. Good job.

Port Wine is Red, and the Heart is Red, therefore Red is to Port. But what side is Port? Right side since the Heart is on the right side.

      All lighthouses cost §4000 Simoleons, earn §100 a month, slightly reduce air and water pollution nearby, and have a moderate local park and landmark effect.

      I'm missing the reward slots for the PEG navy mod for Navy bases 3 and 4. They never seem to show up in the rewards section, even with cheats used.

      Rural Docklands Expansion
      36 Lots to expand the Rural Docklands
      The original Rural Docklands Sets I and II by Doc Rorlach(†) requires 11 Dependencies. This expansion set requires additional 11 Dependencies. So if you never used the Rural Docklands before you might end up with 22 Dependencies to download.
      Basic Information
      This product enlarges the Dural Docklands with 3 and 4 tiles deep lots and quite a few corner lots to build up an industrial water front. There are no container ports related lots in this set. You can find many of them already on the STEX. This set was done with inland ports and the filling of large harbour areas in mind.
      To make the many different corner pieces user friendly I used symbols on the icons. It's easy to understand but it's strongly recommended to read the chapter 'Usage' in the included pdf. It takes less than a minute.
      The new lots use the same querry window as the original ones. Most of the lots use similar stats as the original set - they are almost neutral to the city with no monthly cost and small or no pollution or consumption. The main lots (car transfer dock, building material transfer dock, chemical liquids dock, coal docks) are modded for a small caps relief on industries (CRI lots).
      This set is dedicated to the memory of Doc Rohrlach.
      While downloading the following dependencies - please consider to compliment the original creators. They did the main job.
      Dependencies and Installation Notes
      1. WMP Rural Dockands and Dependencies
      And all listed dependencies (11). The internal downloads are all linked at the bottom of the page. But make shure you don't forget:
      BSC Mega Props - JES Vol01.dat
      BSC Mega Props - JES Vol04.dat
      BSC Mega Props - JES Vol06.dat
      which are not included in the download section, as they are external dependencies.
      Hint: Rural Docklands, Set I containes a file called 'wmp_dummies.dat' and Rural Docklands, Set II contains the same file again. You can delete one of them.
      2. Additional Dependencies
      NOB Mega Props Vol02.dat
      NOB Mega Props Vol03.dat
      BSC MEGA Props - Gascooker Vol01.dat
      BSC Mega Props - JES Vol09.dat
      (please check in case, if you have this actual and not an older version as it might not work)
      (the installer installs also a lot file named 'SG_4x4_Canal_CoalWharf_30fa6c92.SC4Lot' in the folder ."..\Plugins\BSC\Canals\Extras\Wharf - Coal". If you don't play with SimGoobers Brick Canals this lot isn't of much use and you might delete it)
      (included in this download is a folder called MMPs with dat files to turn the props into MMPs. You don't need this, but they are really nice und you might want to keep it)
      Nams PROPS PACK Vol 2.dat
      R6_Prop Pack 2010_Vol2.dat
      RJM Prop Pack 2
      Additional Content (you don't need this - but you may like)

      Hardun industris coal mine (to expand the coal dock).
      JENXPARIS House Boat by (ploppable ship, fitting in size)
      Hong Kong Junker Ships (even more nice ploppable ships)
      Fantozzi, march 2017. Enjoy!

      i was wondering if this is a common issue in the game... you can see the middle normal road has a nice 90 degree natural curve, now when i try to apply it to the dirt road version it doesn't work or just goes back to the normal road look. Anyone know any solutions around this?
