About This File

This mod provides a template layout for a perfect city with a maximum traffic efficiency to building density ratio. It does only change the guides that appear ingame, if you draw a street. As requested the most important information you have to know ;)

Instructions 
 - Install by copying the .package file into your ...\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityData\ folder
 - If you rename the file, make sure it comes before "SimCity_Game.package" alphabetically

Warning 

 - Modifying files is still experimental and might lead to city rollbacks 
(no rollback caused by this mod)
 - There is no official statement from Maxis nor EA about using mods, so use at your own risk

  • roads 1st guide (2HD) 2nd guide (4HD)
  • low street 1st guide (1HD) 2nd guide (2HD)
  • med street 1st guide (3HD) 2nd guide (6HD)
  • high street 1st guide (1MT) 2nd guide (2MT)
  • avenue 1st guide (1HD) 2nd guide (2HD)
  • transition between avenues and low street

 

MT = MegaTower

HD = High Density building
There is only the transition between avenues and the low density street. Other streets or the dirtroad deliver wrong guides i would think. You should always use the same road/street to deliver you a guide.

 

Examples:

  • you have a low density street > pick low density (or avenue for transition) and let the guides show up
  • you have a dirtroad > pick dirtroad and let the guides show up
  • and so on

 

To explain my decision for the transition: it will help you keep your avenues free of traffic. If you want the space between avenues to be higher it would mean there is no such help anymore. You would have to zone on your avenues. How the mod actually works you are able not to zone at your avenues. The only reason for me to do it like i did it.

 

If there are any questions about changing values of my mod send me a PM please.

      Hi there, I looking for some tutorials on how to get started with this, I don't have any exp. on moding but I would like to start with simple goal mind, creating a new, functional building.
      I've been looking around and there are some tutorials but they are too confusing for me since I don't know where to start, and so, I though about a simple guideline of what I want to do.
      If I want to add a new building I should:
      1.- Learn how to make a building, what tools do I need, how do I use them, can I import a model from other progams like photoshop or a 3D modeling program?
      2.- Learn how to add it to the game, without replacing an existing one and place it in the correct tab.
      3.- Adding stats to it, I don't want it to be free, I want it to have a cost, a monthly fee, demo cost and if possible, fundings.
      4.- Giving it properties so they have an effect other than just be there, that means produce energy, clean pollution, increase coverage, raise or lower land value, provide housing, business and/or jobs, etc.
      5.- Make it an unlocklable so it's not avaible from the start until certain requirements are met like date, population, ratings, etc.
      My goal is to expand my gameplay and knowlage, I know there are tons of mods out there, but I would like to do it myself and create my own things.
      So there, any help would be great, thanks.
      PD: I want to try using my own stuff and not others, thanks again.

      Hey there
      I live in Switzerland, and here (and some other cities around the world) the crosswalks are yellow/orange. I was wondering if it is possible to add this to cities skylines? I don't really have a lot of experience with modding...

        NEVERMIND I found the problem..........After downloading a bunch of plugins on this and some other forums, most of which were just buildings, I've noticed that when I place a source of water or power that it covers the whole map, without the need for power lines or pipes. I have no idea how this happened, but I assume its connected to one of the plugins I downloaded. But I downloaded mostly buildings, and nothing to do with water or power, as far as I know. This is really annoying for me because I like to keep my rich areas separate, but now I have mansions popping up where I don't want them to. I'm not sure what to do, I've looked through my plugins folder for anything that could have caused this, but its not very organized and I haven't found anything. I'm thinking I'll have to delete everything and start over but I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone had any suggestions or perhaps knew of the plugin that would cause this. 
      Thanks in advance, Ryan

      Brilliant mod! 10% Confucius, 90% confused.

      A must for a midwestern city, this little gem seems to embody the understated balance which is found on some of their old buildings, and is surely able to express it to the benefit of surrounding environment - utilitarian and simple yet subtly graceful, can easily complement, and fit into, many contexts, lending it's humble contribution to their enrichment.

      This is a good demonstration of how the SC4 map renderer can be used to design maps that reflect a symbol or an idea, or just a 'perfect' world optimized for the game and its functions, especially networking and placing of objects.   I've used this method myself to make pictures of a dove, a donut, and even used a script font on my Earth maps.    For the above male and female symbols I see a use for my continuing ferry experiments and access of cruise and shipping connections to other tiles in the region.   The idea for the ferries is to see if I can get all traffic using ferries --with no bridges.   So thanks for these examples.

      I really like the idea, but the water texture is a bit disappointing.
  • Recent STEX Comments

    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
    • I love, love, LOVE seeing Louisiana BATS in the game. Hope you'll come back soon and upload some more.
    • Because theres no SimCity 3000 section
    • Well, yes ... but also ... ... a map. Depends on the network layout? But no - these are two different maps. That's like two different planets. They'll have to dance alone. Did you ever notice there is a sexual practice - since the beginning - that transcends already gender difference - a very common sexual practice you can't call it rather heterosexual  nor homosexual? You can do it too. Everyday. And so - overcome sociocultural dichotomy not only in theory but with your own hands.
