How to make good looking stadia?

Please help. I've always wanted to BAT some stadia to SC4 (espcially Helsinki Olympic) but those damn seatings. They don't look natural. So explain how I make good looking seats / rows of them.

I didn't post this on Krioworks, because I believe different thread will get better answers.

Well the simple part is, you only need to make one seat or bank, then use the various array tools to copy and even bend them nicely to fill the arena. If you are still using SC4 BAT though you are going to have a tough time because the polygon limits will mean you can't be too detailed due to the sheer number you will need.

  • rsc: yeah, I know. I usually take measurements from my chairs: 40 cm from ground to the butt and 20 cm to the next seat above. You X it up to stadia and it looks like and a landslide.

        Thanks to the idea of relotting a few stadiums by @jaredh, I was inspired to accomplish another entertainment pack.
        While most of the relots included are sports based, I did also include a relot of the BLAM variation of Chuck E Cheese's.
        Most of the lots will appear in the landmark menu while the swimming pools in this pack will all be found in the parks menu. Others may require lotplop.
        Simgoober's pool pack is a dependency which is listed at the bottom. You can safely remove all lot files found in the downloads.

        This is it. The Dmscopio Stadium AKA "The Glass Bagle". The lot size is 16x18 and it provides CS$$800 jobs. To install, simply extract to your Plugins folder.

        It was mentioned that this can be done with modtools. How exactly?
        If you make a custom Match Day stadium, how do you tell the fans where to sit?
