This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Want to make your lake, river or sea neighborhoods more attractive?
Use this simple piers and moored boats decoration set for your hoods.
This set contains 9 different decorations, that are aviable under miscellaneous menu of the neighborhood decorations.

Here is a short exclamation of each file:

1. crqtt_marina_wood_pier_short.package - short wood pier that can be placed on the beach or the bottom.
2. crqtt_marina_wood_pier_long.package - this pier can also be placed on shoreline but it's longer than the first one.
3. crqtt_marina_wood_pier_fragment.package - this is a fragment of the pier that can be placed on the water only. Just use it if you want to make your pier longer, o make an intersection of piers.
4. crqtt_marina_boat_slip_single.package - use this to create single boat slip on your pier. Can be placed on the water only.
5. crqtt_marina_boat_slips_triple.package - use this to create triple boat slips on your pier. Can be placed on the water only too.
6. crqtt_marina_sailboat_single.package - this is a moored sailboat, that can be placed next to your piers. Can be placed on the water only.
7. crqtt_marina_sailboat_triple.package - three moored sailboats in one decoration. Use it if you want more boats in your marina.
8. crqtt_marina_fishingboat_single.package - fishing boat. Can be placed on the water only.

These are fantastic!! I remember seeing the pictures you posted at S2C, and I'm really excited to see that the piers themselves have finally been uploaded here. Thanks for sharing these!

Criquette I absolutely adore your work and have been playing with your neighborhood terrain for awhile now. Have you tested to see if these can be seen from within Lots? Also, it says it requires University as one of the EPs, I recently uninstalled Uni due to issues, but I have all other EPs up to and including Freetime. Should I be worried about not having Uni?

Thanks a million!

Awesome work!

Do you think you could make a BV Pirate Ship (not wrecked) or some older styles of ship for a fantasy/medieval/Victorian theme?

(oops, oh.. umm.. feedback, not thanks! ooohh..)

Woohoo! It's finnaly uploaded and OMG it's a picked upload :D
Thanks every one who already commented on this and downloaded it. And of course for you guys, who will do it in the future

Cinamun, if you'll look closer to screenshots, you'll see one of them exactly from the lot so these piers are visible from both kind of lots ( i meen, beach and.. not )
About NL, Uni and BV that are required. I just remember that custom hood decos can be used only with NL and BV installed, so if you don't have these EPs, custom decos will not be visible in decos menu, but still - there's a mod somewhere on MTS2 as i remember, that allows use of custom decos even on clean TS2 without any EP, so.. i've made this EPs required only because i didn't test it without these EPs.. So you can just try it out - i think it will work any way :D

freesimmy21, thanks! I think i could Any way i just have to finish my small ferry decoration set first

TaylorGuy, thank you! And It's simple. First, place a beach lot on your shoreline, and second - put down a pier on it

Thanks again everyone!
