General Limitless & Over Water for Residential and Offices 1.1

Original author: qwertyuiop123

  1. XL Nation Staff
    For those of you who want to build blocks of overlapping houses and/or offices on water, I hope you will like this patch! I only added residential & office buildings since these seem most logical and nice to use in Limitless Construction mode.

    This patch contains:

    => All CXL 2012 Residential Buildings (r1, r2, r3, r4)
    => All CXL 2012 Office Buildings (Industry Business Service)

    They will appear once the button "Limitless Construction" is toggled (as part of the menu interface of Altiris User Interface Mod)
    The patch only contains the .class files, no new buildings are added.

    Q: How did I create the Over Water Placement?
    A: Simply replacing/adding the Placement tags "GroundType"ANY"/GroundType" in each class file.

    Q: How did I create the Limitless Construction?
    A: Simply adjusting all Collisionshape tags of "Dimension"40,40"/Dimension" to 1,40 (and all 60,60 to 1,60 and 80,x to 1,x and 100,y to 1,y and 120,z to 1,z) in each class file. This way all buildings still snap correctly to the roads.

    Q: How did I make them appear in the menu under the "Limitless Construction" button?
    A: Simply replacing all "Tags";MS18;"/Tag" by "Tags";MSNOCOLLISION;"/Tag" in each class file.

    Total work around 30 mins thanks to Editplus for some smart "Find/Replace in all files".
    If you find any bugs please let me know. I tested many of the buildings, so it should work flawlessly. (See the pictures, all buildings are actually built on water)

    PLEASE MIND THE FOLLOWING: I do not recommend using the following mods at the same time as this mod:
    => "Small Collision Box Mod" from user Evilcatdog (http://xlnation.net/system/files/private/ultimatenocbmod_0.patch)
    => "Manager residences without collision box - V2 ! - bug fixed from user Vallamir
    These mods also add Residential or Office buildings in Limitless Construction mode, so double icons might appear.

    Version V1_1:
    - Sometimes a "not connected to road" error could appear for buildings when using zoning tools. This is fixed in v1_1. The limitless construction buildings will not appear anymore when the zoning tools are used. (I added the "NOZAC" tag in all class files. Thanks to Preyfr60 for mentioning this!)
    - Changed patch filename to XLN convention [​IMG]
