823 DownloadsCraig-Abcvs Text Loading Mod It is a well known fact, that as our plugin folders, get ever larger, that our city tiles take longer and longer to load... So what are we to do while we wait for the tile to load? Well there are a few options, such as going and fixing a snack or going to the bathroom... but for those of us who have a pathological need to stare intently at the loading screen, wouldn't it be good if there was something new to keep us amused, rather than the original Maxis loading texts, which while they were probably funny 10 yrs ago, maybe we would appreciate something different to smile at while the tile loads. Never fear the Craig-Abcvs Text Loading Mod is here! 120 or so lines of all new wit from the Screw Pile Developments, South Pacific Down-Under Division... Simply place the dat file in your plugin folder, load the game, select a tile and sit back and enjoy what the game loading minions slaving away in the virtual recesses of your hard drive really think about how much stuff you have crammed in your plugin folder! If you decide that you are bored again, and wish to revert to the original Maxis text simply delete the dat file from your plugins. *Instructions on how to make your very own text loading mod are in the read-me!

Hi, I created a Text Loading Mod with quotes about cities and city life, based on Craig-Abcvs' work. I acknowledge it was pretty easy to create, but since it took a bit of time to put together, and I hope other people might enjoy it, I am thinking of uploading it to the Exchange. I’ve never uploaded anything before, so I have a few questions. -Does anyone need to confirm is it worth uploading? (Is it worth uploading?) -Should anyone test it beforehand? (Does anyone want to volunteer?) -Should I upload it also to the LEX? Thanks
305 DownloadsAbout this Upload This Text Loading Mod replaces Maxis' text that appears as a city tile loads. The mod is made of quotes about cities that express both positive and negative views on city life to reflect your tyrannical or merciful governing style as mayor. In some cases, quotes were shortened to clarify and aid in-game readability. Other quotes reference specific cities to inspire you! Some quotes are longer, you may have to read fast! All display properly with my screen resolution of 1366 x 768. Versions are available in English, Spanish and French! Thanks to matias93 for the Spanish translation! Watch the text to find shout-outs I included to Craig-Abcvs and airman15 to thank them for their own Text Loading Mods that I enjoyed! About the Files Simply choose which language you wish to use and put that file in your Plugins Folder. Use only one at a time! A readme file includes a document with all the text and to whom the quote is attributed. See Craig-Abcvs's Text Loading Mod if you wish to modify these quotes or to create your own Text Loading Mod.
