Build on coasts without having to bulldoze the water manually
Configuration file: buildoncoasts
Command line: -YC
This switch allows you to build items on coastal tiles that are partly land and partly water. Normally you would have to bulldoze the tile, and quickly build on it before the water returns. If this switch is active, you don't have to manually bulldoze first.
This option is most useful when the buildonslopes switch is also enabled (see Build on Slopes), as it gives you a much wider choice of things that can be built on sloped tiles like the coastal ones.
Note that you still have to pay for the cost of bulldozing, so building on the tiles can still be very expensive if more than one edge has water on it.
