Flying Pig Sugar Shacks by DocRorlach

The Flying Pig Sugar Shacks operate all year-round: during the season they produce the staple maple syrup, while in the off-season period they bring out the stills and convert corn and left-over sap into a potent hooch. The three shacks all have transitory street access, however, the FP Shack was lotted specifically for transitions between SAM asphalt and SAM dirt track. All three require power and water, and offer low-wealth service jobs.

Although they were designed for rural use, they are really part of the local tourist industry. They appear near the top of the Landmark Menu.

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.

Thanks & credits go to Tariel - for coming up with the idea in the first place; Rivit - for once again saving the bacon; Dave - for testing & night-shots; and all the folks suggesting changes and updates in the SimPeg forum - too numerous to mention.
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 Best include a screen-shot illustrating the problem.
