MTP abcvs School of the Air
By - Craig-Abcvs


If the Maxis game designers wanted us to build, bigger, denser and more urban... then they clearly had not met those of us who want to build, smaller, sparser and more rural.

Now consider for a moment you live on your standard issue large SC4 tile... but the thing is you don't live down on the river plain, near the main roads, or anywhere near a town. You live way up in the mountains... in a cabin by a lake, way up out the back of beyond, in the far corner... the boonies... the sticks... or the wop wops.

Then of course one cold winters night when the diesel runs out in the generator... the only thing for it is to turn in early with the Mrs...
...and well wadda ya know... 9 months later... well... yeah... little Jr. arrives.

Then of course little Jr... grows like a bean sprout and he needs to get all smart and edumacated... but you still live way up in the furtherest corner of the tile...
Do you send Jr, into town to stay with your second cousin with her brain twice removed to attend school?

No! You crank up the old shortwave radio, and Jr, attends his lessons via the MTP School of the Air!
The lesson packages are delivered periodically by the mail plane, or the flying doctors on their monthly clinic runs from the MTP Medical Landing Strip... they then land at the MTP Crop Dusting Strip which is just over the back fence of your cabin.

So while the school and the teacher is located some distance away, with the wonders of modern technomahlogicalogy little Jr. can still receive his education... all thanks to the power of the school radio transmitter broadcasting at the convenient coverage range of 4096 kHz - which is pretty much the biggest coverage circle you can mod.

Then once Jr. is all tucked up in bed, the School of the Air is still hard at work, educating all the isolated Sims in on-air night classes...
... preventative diesel generator maintenance, agricultural turf grass science, ultra realistic modding for rural SC4 custom content, and knitting woolly socks for beginners.

Menu - Education
Plop cost - $500
Monthly - $100
Bulldoze - $100
Coverage - Full large tile, if built near the centre
Max Capacity - 500

Dependencies:
MTP Super Resource Pack
PEG-CDK3 Coast Guard Station
PEG Security Fencing Kit
Optional - One Flag Many Nations (if you want your flag of choice to fly)

What an amazing idea.... and it actually makes some sort of sense instead of " Mega radius makez it betterz. No reasonz." Well done. Thanks for uploading, but is the next thing you do gonna be related to anything air like?

Problem: it educates the Sims to high EQ but when querying residentials they say low school level! Which means you must be robbing them of proper education etc or there is a bug that says low school. I have to have about 15 of these around my big square city as they get maxed out constantly. DO you have to have the crop dusted landing strip for this to work?

      This PEG-PPOND Tahoe Pontoon Boats was made by Paeng and originally was uploaded as a forum attachment onto the PLEX and hasn't been available according to my best knowladge. I made this readme to collect all the dependencies into one place for easier acces with updated links.
      Please note with the permission of the Simptropolis Staff Members (Cori & Cyclone Boom) and Catty-CB this file has been uploaded on behalf of Paeng. It was not available anymore due to the unfortunate demise of SimPeg. All the works in this download were created by Paeng.
      LIST OF ITEMS:
      * 3 1x1 Lots with offset boat props and transparent textures.
      Installation:
      Unzip the whole bundle, or COPY the "Paeng" folder from the *.zip into your plugin folder. You don't need to keep the "Documentation" folder. To uninstall, bulldoze any instance of this lot in your city, then remove the file(s) from your Plugins.
      Dependencies:

      Details from the original readme made by Paeng with updated links:

      A series of shallow canals to create riverwalks or promenades with low sidings for more urban and recreational purposes, to mix with Peg's Ponds and Streams.

      * 4 pcs. Promenade
      * 4 pcs. Narrow (single width) Canals
      * 3 pcs. Xtras (Addons)

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      DEPENDENCIES
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      DEVELOPER NOTES
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Experiment with the various sub-sets - all pieces can be mixed freely. Some pieces will need a bit of MMP-treatment to cover up the occasional 'neuralgic' spot. When plopping MMPs take care not to overdo it, otherwise the canal pieces will just "disappear" ;-)
      It is recommended to use this set together with the Free Waters Mod.
      The pieces are set with default white bases and are compatible with my Sandstone Sidewalk Mod.
      All needed info is given via the in-game menu.
      You find all items at or near the end of the 'Parks' menu with custom icons.

      I have begun a massive project, relotting Diggis ponds. And I need some more boats. So I went looking for moar boats, like WMP skulls and punts, SG Grandpa Al's fishing boat et al. And Peg's beautiful sailboats.
      But this doesn't go into the "Can't find it" thread, because I am supposed to have them -- they are supposed to be in PEG CDK3 SUPER PACK, and indeed, they show up as "sailboat" in the Reader , (the ones I am looking for). But. I can't find them in the L.E. !!! 
      First I had uploaded LAK7 pack of boats for plopwater (PEG, CAL, NOB) made with them.  I have the deps for that --among which PEG CDK3 etc., as indicated in the readme. It works for CAL boats. PEG's remain AWOL.
      I even tried Paeng SmallBoat MMP (which sports both CAL and PEG's boats.) But additional snag here : when I tried to verify with the Reader that the boats were indeed there (and under which name), it refuses to open  both the BSC CAL Small boats.dat and the SmallBoats.dat. UH ??? 
      I've scoured the L.E. in all directions, and item by item. I can't find those dratted boats. 
      HELP ?
