About This File

UPDATE: I have lost motivation in developing this tool, so I plan on handing this responsibility to someone else or making it open source. If you are interested, send me a PM.

 

Welcome to my Mod Manager. This tool allows you to easily add and remove mods without the hassle of dragging and dropping many files. The functionality of this tool is fairly limited as of right now, as I am pretty new at programming (I am in high school), but  over time, more and more features will be added.

 

New Version ( 1.1,0) Released!

 

What's New in 1.1:

- HUGE Graphical Rework

- Ability to Re size Window
- Added Screenshot Viewer
- Bug Fixes

 

Update 1.0.8 Includes:

- Ability to Add multiple mods to available mod list (Finally!)

- Ability to drag multiple mods the available mod list

- ID numbers will now scale properly when a mod is removed from the list

 

 

For those updating from 1.0.0,

TAKE THESE STEPS:

 
1. Delete all mods currently installed
2. Delete SimcityModManager Folder in Documents Folder
3. Launch Application
4. Re install All Mods

 

 

Planned:

.rar support

Mod Downloader

Compatibility Checker

Icons and Pictures (Done)

More Friendly UI (Done)

I already have installed mods, but after choosing the folder, i don't see anyone of them in the program. Also, when i click options and then change, the simcity folder isn't set as destination, only the Origin Games folder, i can't change it...

To change the destination folder, you click the button with three small dots next to the textbox. Also, it does not detect already installed mods... yet.

Thank you very much, I think this mod will come in very handy as it allows the user to be more sure of where it would install.

will this work for the mods that need to be installed in different folders ie eco game, SimCity data, and the other ones that need the files to be split up and put into other folders ?

#1 HS or JRHS doesn't matter .. most of us at one point started out at ages you can't imagine.  I got into this when I was age 11 so .. keep it up.  It takes passion and creativity.

 

#2 is something many people have wanted and your the first to do it.. so keep It up.. your doing fine so far :)

 

remember the hardest person to please is yourself not usually others.. in many ways you will be your own worse critic when making mods, managers or features for others.  I don't know of a single person who makes mods, applications or software in general whom didn't start by doing it on their own somehow.. so great job.

 

Look forward to seeing what you come up with

Peace

I'm working on something to let you install to other folders.

This seem certainly like a nice idea. Do you have planned to make this an open source project and/or planned to open a support thread in the forums?

I'd love it if you could select more than one mod to add to the mod manager. It'd really speed things up for me.

Can anyone run this? Windows keeps "protecting me" from it, and when I told it to run anyway Norton told me it quarantined the "SONAR.heuristic" virus.

To be honest I've been using Mac for the past 7 years (I'm borrowing my son's new laptop while he is at school) so I'm not sure what to make of this.

I keep getting the error "could not find a part of the path" when trying to install a mod using your mod manager. Everything else seems to work fine so far, can't check the uninstall to see if it works because i can't get a mod installed.  "Launch Game" doesnt work either.

I assure you it does not have a virus. Happy modding :)

Any updated version after 1.0 that I download won't open up.

Try deleting the SimcityModManager Folder in your documents and then running the latest version.

It still doesn't work for me. Everytime I download it, it is only 64kb and an error pops up saying that it can not open file. It's probably something on my end, but I just wanted to check if anyone else has ran into this issue.

Thanks

Getting Microsoft.Net frame work error.

Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click continue the application will ignore and attempt to continue. If you click quit. The application will close immediately.

 

Could not find file

C\Users\Admin\Documents\SimcityModManager\InstalledMods.txt

 

How do i fix this?

Change the file type to ".disabled", SimCity wont load it.

Better way because you don't need InstalledMods.txt and a folder dedicated for disabled mods.

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

    • @kellydale2003 As I said in the review it's avesome stuff, I would have only one request. Could you next time make a notice on the description, that the growable version is only compatible with CAM by default...  I was wondering why I haven't seen growing your stuffs in my cities (f.e. Linda Swampy), and took an other look to the lot files I see, that some of them is CAMified, and I don't play with CAM... Linda Swampy is a stage 10 I-Ht... So that would be worth a mention I guess for those who doesn't use the CAM as well... Thanks in advance!  - Tyberius
    • Having Trouble with this plugin. I downloaded this and all the dependencies. All I see is parking lot and cars. no Building. What do u think might be causing this?
    • This strategy is really commendable. There have been so many buildings that were 95% ready and had already reached a quality level that left most users with their lower jaw on the desk, and yet they got lost ultimately and never made it to any download section, even though of all people with an interest in that BAT, literally every single person other than the creator would gladly have downloaded it in its current state. You chose to go the other route, and - lo and behold! - people love the building, download it, and are happy. Thank you so much for contributing a superb BAT to the STEX rather than another post to one of the most depressive threads on Simtropolis!
    • It's a landmark in SC4, too, but the scale of Maxis' version is totally off, and the lot is strange as well. Therefore, a custom version is very welcome. I recently compared old and new version side by side, and the progress you have made since then is impressive! Smoother modeling (the inward curves used to look a tad bumpy), better windows, better roof textures and roof junk, better night lights... it's an improvement in all respects!
    • Any way to get this to work on a mac?
