Wind Mills
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:19:27 AM »
Since I'm totally a nerd with LOTs and Bats, I am hoping to find Wind Mills that have a foot print of 1x1 tiles.
I don't use big power factories until very late in the game, so...

If these 1x1 wind mills don't exist, maybe one of you could tell me how to go about it.

Thanks!

By wind mills I'm assuming you are referring to wind power generators?

If so then this lot should do it. They are 1x1. http://sc4devotion.com/csxlex/lex_filedesc.php?lotGET=3546

Looks like rushed to write my last above post before testing it.
So here is my lame question: after adding the file to my plugins, start the game and... I couldn't fine the 1x1 wind power generator!
Where could it be?

It will be under the power menu.

Just so you know, the model is static, not animated.

Thanks friend.

EDIT few hours later: the Tweaker worked like charm! Nifty little soft...

Funny detail: The red blinking red light got left out, within the green circle...  ;D

Hello huzman

The blinking light is not part of the model therefore it cannot be "tweaked"

However if you open the lot with either XPim or LE, you can easily remove it.

Because the blinking light is an animated object, you will see it in the form of a green diamond. Just click it, delete it and then save the lot.

You can also lower the blinking light in LE, may do so for 2 or 3 tries, but it works, I do it all the time when I reduce too big models to my personal scale.

Didn't the STBT release a windmill. Not sure how big the footprint is.
