Coastal Mod Colours
Mod Details and Information

The colours are based on mods previously done and so should meet most requirements, but keep in mind
that your monitor affects the colours you see.

The Mod consists of 10 colours of rippled sea texture, 12 inshore colours, 5 sandy foreshore and
beach colors, 4 rock foreshore colours and a transparent beach texture.

To apply: choose

  • Zero or One .dat file from each of:
    • /Foreshore
    • /Inshore
    • /Offshore

groups and put into Plugins.

If you pick a Sandy Foreshore choose the corresponding beach texture too.
If you pick a Rocky Foreshore you may want to make the beaches Transparent (or not).

This download is only compatible with SimCity 4 "Rush Hour" or SimCity 4 Deluxe.

Manual Installations: Unzip the archive into a subfolder below \(My) Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins. Select the parts of inshore, foreshore, and/or offshore colours you want to use.

Un-Installing: Revert by removing.


The usage of this download is on your own risk. We do test our lots and of course use them ourselves, so they should work properly, but errors may still exist. Feel free to modify the lots for yourself and show them in your city journals, but you cannot distribute them in any manner or form. You certainly cannot upload them to fan sites or file exchanges.

All ZIP archives and the files they contain have been checked for virus infections and are clean.


Note to Techs/Modders: SimCity uses Tex 039 for Foreshore, 014 for Inshore and 0987130x for Sea.
The three textures are combined at the coastal margins depending on the depth - deeper=darker.
The defaults are brownsand, mauve inshore and light blue flat sea. A sun texture is also applied
over the top of the scene. You can optionally choose waves (surf and whitecap highlights) from the
graphics options.
