WMP Truck Ferry, by DocRorlach & Murimk WMP Logo

The third ferry in our series contains two lots, sharing several local dependencies (all available from this site):

  • WMP Truck & Car Ferry (8x5)
    This is the game's first large-scale ferry port and the first aimed entirely at streets. It acts as a standard car & passenger ferry, but at 8x5 takes up a fair bit of space and is best suited for industrial areas. It comes with a separate truck parking lot, featuring time truck and car queues as well as timed parked cars.
  • WMP Truck Parking (8x3)
    The parking lot is meant as a complement to the ferry lot itself, and ideally sits across the street. It uses the same trucks and cars, plus some extra, timed queues, but has neither jobs nor other functions.

Best placement for the ferry lot is on a gentle, sloping area of the waterfront. We recomend that you do not terraform for it, but let the ferry lot settle the terrain.

Compatibility

Installation

Manual Installations: If you are using the DIC (Download & Installation Catalogue) manual installations are easy. If not, unpack the ZIP archive into your (My) Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins Folder. We recommend creating a WorkingMan folder beforehand, if it does not exist, and using that as the installation folder.

Un-Installing: To un-install the files, simply bulldoze every lot from this download in your cities and delete the files from the plugins folder afterwards.

Dependencies

To ensure the proper functionality, make sure the files mentioned below are installed in the plugins folder. Dependencies for the different ferry types vary only slightly - you only need to download each dependency once.

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.
Disclaimer

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.

Credits

While the usual thanks go out to everyone around the Pegasus site & teams and to Dave for his patience with testing this stuff, this project would have not been possible without the creative efforts of quite a lot of people in the 3D modelling world:
First off, there is Max Grueter in Switzerland, whose Working Class Heroes are found on all the ferry lots; for the trucks and cars I owe thanks to a whole slew of designers: Jost, jrn91, anonymous, col1, mike409, mclarenman, banamana, sandman, mago, williamT, matt372, and poolboy.

Special thanks must also be offered to Murimk, who really started this nightmarish project with his suggestions & critiques, and who provided the timed props.

Problems?
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.
