A Small Seaplane Port has now been added
! The dock graphics come courtesy of kamnet.
The optimal placement parameters for such a port are a bit more in-depth than a regular land airport, so I have attached a .gif to illustrate.
Frame 1: Bulldozing some water tiles to make room for the port, since it cannot be directly placed on water. This step can be very expensive.
Frame 2: Building the port on the bare tiles - A very important
but not directly shown step is the use of a bare-water newobject to prevent the airport from being destroyed by flooding
. A new bare water tile was added to SNO
that can assist in this. Simply bulldoze bare ground around the periphery of the seaport and place water tiles on them
to safeguard against destruction.
Frame 3: Decorating the port with some OGFX+ Airport Object
Frame 4: Av8 seaplanes
at the port! Although they do not always align perfectly with the docks in all rotations...
Even with new original dock sprites, alignment compatibility is preserved with the MariCo
set, should you desire to make use of its excellent objects.
