  • I have try all kind of the beach on the STEX and also so nice
    in normal view the known Maxis bag for the beach make poor
    all beach.
    So I have think of abadon the classic concet to make beach
    (tiles on ground and tiles on water) and realize a beach only
    on ground.
    To make a correct wiev I have used the MOD "extended-beach.dat" and I have make transparent all tiles of the beach lots that I have realized (not so nice).

    Well done - looks great!

    Right now I am struggling myself with the ugly look of the beaches under water. Might give your approach a try...

  • First of all sorry for my English.
    Second thank for your compliment.
    I play SimCity since 1989 (on the glorious Commodore64)
    and my hobby was and is just to realize complex and functional city/region.
    I just know as to use the LotEditor and I know only some functions of Reader.
    I am much grateful to the "GURU" of SimCity like NAM team, Simgoober, Pegasus, Deadwoods, Gascooker ,ecc.
    They are artists, thanks so mach for your work.
    A big thanks to Simtropolis and regards to mr Will Wright.

    Great job!  I too struggle with  just the right look for beaches!  I noticed in one of your pictures a stairway down to the Beach, where did you get it?  Would you please tell me where I can download it from.  Thanks in advance.

    The stairway in the picture is a my elaboration of the original "Marrast Walkways & Stairs Set v.2.0" on the STEX.
    Thanks to MARRAST for the nice work.
