WMP Ethanol Plant A by DocRorlach
Flying Pig Workplaces

This is the first in a series of SPAM (SimPeg Acricultural Mod) workplaces: a large ethanol plant, based roughly on a real-life plant somewhere in the United States. The large lot contains everything needed to create the bio fuel, and employs 145 folks from the surrounding rural area. The plant, while listed as a landmark, also acts as a switch between freight rail and freight trucks.

All buildings were rendered in SD to reduce the overall file size, however, all props were exported using HD. The dependencies contain two BSC Prop Packs that, while large, are common enough that most everyone will already own them.

An optional Left-Hand Drive patch is available must be loaded after the wmp_texture10.dat).

Notes about Nightlighting Effects
In order to see the nightlighting, you must install the EP1-Update 1 for Rush Hour/Sim City 4 Deluxe, and then afterwards, install the SC4-Update for nightlighting (note: you have to be logged in in order to see the download link). If this update isn't installed, you won't see any lighting effects on custom BAT buildings.

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.


Special thanks have to go to the rambuctious players at SimPeg; in particular to TownMaster (for his in-depth lectures on how these plants work, and Polock1 (for suggesting the idea & going out of his way to photograph a local plant);

Thanks also go to Rivit for creating the custom pathing; Dave for his patience with testing this stuff; and shokthrpy for his superb parking props.

If you have problems with this lot it is most likely that you did not download all the dependencies or - just as likely - that we made a mistake. You can contact us via email at comments@workingman-productions.co.uk. Best include a screen-shot illustrating the problem.
