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.

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.
