Breakwater/Seawall Set by mdk_813 UPDATE

Post by mdk_813 » Fri Jul 14, 2017 19:18

Hi,
here I have a Breakwater/Seawall Set for your coastlines. It appears in the park menu.
It contains a set of straights (with and without a signalling lamp), inner corners, outer corners (all to be placed on the water tile next to the shore) and an endpiece (to be placed on land).
You have to rotate the pieces to the desired orientation and puzzle together your custom coastlines. It might seem a bit complicated but it gets pretty easy and quick once you get the hang of it ;)
Please note that the seawall only looks good, if the coast tile next to it is covered by another piece from the game, a street or a plaza etc. Bare land next to the pieces will leave gaps and look weird. ALternatively, you can also place the pieces back to back in order to create slimmer dams.

The Set is inspired by a Set for Simcity 4 which was made by a player named Jeronij: http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filed ... lotGET=112
However, I modeled all the pieces in this set from scratch for Theotown.

The set is, in my eyes, equally well suited for urban and for more rural or industrial settings (See images below).

Have fun!

UPDATE:
Thanks to @KoalaGuy , we now also have a linetool version of the seawalls:
http://www.theotown.com/forum/viewtopic ... 034#p71034
I recommend using them together with my original puzzle pieces (zip file below). There is no need to remove or replace the old version.

Thank you.
Well, maybe at a later time. I'm currently working on some other stuff as well.
But, what kind of military plugins are you thinking about? I mean, the original military addon is pretty comprehensive already, isn't it?

No, PS.
But I'm sure this could be done in other programs like paint.net or gimp, too.

Suggestion:
Make a transparent one.
Like with draw_ground.
So it can blend with the ambient.
Thus no requiring plazas.
All the pieces use "draw ground" already.
You put them on the water tile next to the land tile and it covers the brownish foundation that is generated by the game when placing a road etc. next to water. If you don't put a land-piece next to it, the original coastline will shine through.

I don't see another way of doing it, because the game cuts away everything from the png that is below the original ground tile, so you can only cover something behind and not in front of a tile.

Maybe this image helps to clarify it some more:

Well, I would have to look into animations then first...
So, no promises.
But the idea is good.

It will be different on every device. Fileviewer will extract zips, if your file manager won't.

For tiles near or in water you can cover pixels in front of the tile. The reason for the cutting in other cases is drawing order. Tiles are drawn from top to bottom, so lower tiles may overdraw upper ones. Water isn't drawn as individual tiles anymore (except of water shading) but before anything else.

That's the reason why the brownish foundations of roads can appear, right?
I noticed that they extent into the tile in front.

Not possible with TT linetool option, already mentioned in some topics
However I think I can make a "custom" linetool if mdk_813 agrees which would not have any rotating problems.
Of course, if you want to, go ahead. I'm not sure it is really necessary, but why not.

I have finished the linetool. Find it above breakwater pieces, just pause the game and place it how you want. When you unpause the game, the pieces will be placed. You still may need to use the pieces, but way less than before.
None of the old files has been changed, only "linetool.png" and "breakwater_linetool.json" are added.
Rotate the map as much as you want, it will all look like it's supposed to. :)

Thank you very much!
I've updated the initial post and added a link to your linetool version.

Hello!
I was curious, in your 1st post 2nd screenshot, what plugin are you using for the concrete and concrete with trees just behind the break wall?

Thank you in advance!

P.S. Thanks Koala for the line tool!
