SPAM - Single & Diagonal Ploppable Fields

SimCity Mayors can be tricky customers to work with at the best of times, especially if they 'absolutely want' say a tomato field in a certain place for a certain reason. The answer of course is for a friendly lotter to whip up a quick 1x1 lot. You would then be forgiven for thinking that everyone would now be happy... but ooh noo... if only life were so simple!

To compound matters further, then of course, inevitably, an even really, really, fussier mayor will come along that now demands that he absolutely wants to put his tomato rows on an irregularly shaped field, ...but on a transparent tile, thank you very much, if you please, because let's face it the the dreaded diagonal zig zag look of base textures is to be absolutely avoided... because well... that looks really really naff... even though SimCity custom content developers have been trying for years to overcome this particular visual scourge.

Can these demands be satisfied? Should we even attempt to satisfy them?

Well yes.. and yes if it suits us to and if we feel like it... then we would probably come up with something like this:

Contents:
Crop Singles 1x1 (8 lots)
Crop Diagonals 1x1 (10 lots)
Tree Singles 1x1 (8 lots)
Tree Diagonals 1x1 (8 lots)

Important Note:
When plopping some of seasonal crops (eg: wheat, rye, barley) they will not appear for a full game year seasonal cycle. The seasonal crop singles will plop with only a base texture, and the seasonal diagonal crops will appear to be initially invisible, (without props) until the first seasonal cycle is complete. To speed up the process, simply put the game on cheetah speed (ctrl - 3) and the crops will appear and then cycle as normal.

These lots are ideal for planting certain types of crops in specific areas, making small repairs to zoned and grown crop fields, and also provides a quick fix for the 'no access zot' problem that affects some variable shaped lot (VSL) zones.

Stats:
