Description
These modular canal assets work a lot like Lego blocks. There's no need for terraforming or water management, and the terrain does not have to be flat. The blocks skyrocket land value within a very limited range. Assuming you have your regular services setup correctly, buildings alongside these canals will quickly level up to 3, 4 or 5.

All assets have comparable maintenance costs, requirements and sewage output, based on their overall size and the amount of lights they have. All assets are subdivided so they can work on sloped terrain. This means the tris count for the base models is around 2000 to 4000, but the LODs are limited to about 160-220 depending on the dimensions. I may refrain from adding individual poly counts to each asset, as they are all modelled and textured in the same way.

Blocks I would still like to add:
- Endcap Block
- 4x4Ci Block (Mirrored C)
- S-bends or longer curved parts (only if I can make it work with terrain hole)

Optimal spacing is to keep each block one or more cells away from each other. Otherwise the tunnel endcaps will go through the other side of the bridge. You may also notice a grey plane popping thru, which was added to improve self-shadowing. I've shortened it on the more recent Blocks, but it will still show up on the earlier models.

Known issues:
- Using avenues or HW as bridges will expose underground road mesh.
Solution is to add one or more cells spacing and fill it with a Path Block or anything else.
- Superman tourists are in the Olympics for staircase jumping
- There's a known bug causing some items not to appear until you scroll back, an issue I have not been able to solve and seems more related to UI priorities than the assets themselves.

Is it possible to make some canals with a 30, 45 and 60 degree angle ? most European cities, especially Amsterdam are not made out of simple square grids, like they do have in the US. So I can make my hometown Amsterdam,a bit more realistic :)

Hello,
Is it possible to fulfill your canal by the water of the river when is going to be connected ?
And does the door works to fullfill the entrance for the boat and empty it when is coming out/in of the entrance to the other canal or going to the river ?
Thanks for your answer.
By the way, it's very nice job.

Does the Canal lock work, or is ist just a static? Can I switch it to let water flow through it?

Thank you for this amazing feature!

This collection is missing at least 4 things required by assets in this collection.

Required by many:
Terraforming tool 0.9

Required by Canal Block 12x4:
Portable Toilet(Prop)
Semi Truck Trailer Prop
Dream Crane [PROP]

They should be included for convenience.

Like these canals and locks. Would love to see a Dry Canal... a Dry Dock with Dry Locks.

Any chance of merging these? Mod mod list is getting kinda long and it'd be nice to condense it a little.

this is one of my favorite collections, do you plan to have any new ones added?
