About This File

This mod adds two new road building tools that allow you to upgrade between one- and two-way roads and to change one-way road directions, without having to demolish and rebuild the road. 
 
The tools work very similar to the default road upgrade tool. To convert an existing one-way road to a two-way road, you simply select the two-way upgrade tool and click on the segment of the the road you want to upgrade, and drag along the road to convert multiple segments. To convert a two-way road to a one-way road, however, you must drag to the direction you want the road to go instead of just clicking. One-way roads can also be changed to go to the opposite direction in the same manner. 
 
The roads are always converted to the same type counterparts, so it does not matter which road type you have selected in the road tool. This also means that it is not possible to directly convert a 4-lane road to a one-way road, because there is no 4-lane one-way road type in the game. Instead you must first upgrade the road to a 2- or 6-lane road and then convert it to a one-way road. 
 
Unzip into ..\Cities Skylines\Files\Mods.
Activate the mod in your game.
 
While the mod should work quite reliably, it is still somewhat experimental. Therefore it is recommended that you always save your city before using the mod. 
 
Current known issues: 
- Does not work on Linux. (fix planned) 
- Sometimes the mod stays on even when you are not using the roads tools, preventing you from placing electric lines or water pipes. If this happens, restarting the game should fix it. (cause unknown) 
- You can upgrade roads outside of the city's building area. (fix planned)

Very nice idea! I like the purpose to add "Upgrade to 1-way road" etc. More interesting would be adding a menu on Road Upgrade. Example : Select Grass basic road : Upgrade to : Medium Density Road , Medium Density 1 way Road etc­.

      Hi, I'm trying to call some things whenever a road gets built, I tried doing this but whenever I build a road the startNodeID.m_position.y is something like 260
      Array16<NetSegment> lastRememberedNodes; void Update(){ for (int i = 0; i < Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer.Length; i++) { NetSegment item = Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i]; if (item.m_flags != lastRememberedNodes.m_buffer[i].m_flags) { NetNode startNodeID = NetManager.instance.m_nodes.m_buffer[item.m_startNode]; NetNode endNodeID = NetManager.instance.m_nodes.m_buffer[item.m_endNode]; lastRememberedNodes.m_buffer[i].m_flags = item.m_flags; Send("ROADBUILT|" + startNodeID.m_position.x + "|" + startNodeID.m_position.y + "|" + startNodeID.m_position.z + "|" + startNodeID.m_infoIndex + "|" + startNodeID.m_buildIndex + "|" + endNodeID.m_position.x + "|" + endNodeID.m_position.y + "|" + endNodeID.m_position.z + "|" + endNodeID.m_infoIndex +"|" + endNodeID.m_buildIndex + "|" + Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i].m_infoIndex + "|" + Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i].m_buildIndex + "|" + Singleton<NetManager>.instance.m_segments.m_buffer[i].m_modifiedIndex); DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "IM A GIRAFFE " + startNodeID.m_position.y); break; } } } And when I initialize it here:
      DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "building a road"); ColossalFramework.Math.Randomizer ra = new ColossalFramework.Math.Randomizer(); uint startNodeBuildIndex = uint.Parse(aData[4]); NetInfo startNodeInfo = PrefabCollection<NetInfo>.GetLoaded(startNodeBuildIndex); ushort startNodeID; NetManager.instance.CreateNode(out startNodeID, ref ra, startNodeInfo, new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[1]), float.Parse(aData[2]), float.Parse(aData[3])), uint.Parse(aData[5])); DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "building a road 1"); uint endNodeBuildIndex = uint.Parse(aData[9]); NetInfo endtNodeInfo = PrefabCollection<NetInfo>.GetLoaded(endNodeBuildIndex); ushort endNodeID; NetManager.instance.CreateNode(out endNodeID, ref ra, endtNodeInfo, new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[5]), float.Parse(aData[6]), float.Parse(aData[7])), uint.Parse(aData[10])); DebugOutputPanel.AddMessage(PluginManager.MessageType.Message, "building a road 2"); ushort segmentID; NetInfo segmentInfo = PrefabCollection<NetInfo>.GetLoaded(uint.Parse(aData[11])); NetManager.instance.CreateSegment(out segmentID, ref ra, segmentInfo, startNodeID, endNodeID, new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[1]), float.Parse(aData[2]), float.Parse(aData[3])), new Vector3(float.Parse(aData[5]), float.Parse(aData[6]), float.Parse(aData[7])), uint.Parse(aData[12]), uint.Parse(aData[13]), false); lastRememberedNodes = NetManager.instance.m_segments; It just creates a floation road in the middle of nowhere.
      Help please :?

      Here's the situation. I'm trying to add traffic stains to my roads(as can be seen in the pics). The only way I know how to do this is by superimposing props, problem is that I hit the prop limit, no more!  That is unacceptable. I'm wondering if there is some way to colorize, in other words stain the given game roads and use them as upgrades on existing roads without using props. After all, all we talking about is changing the existing color pixelization on the asset with no additional program elements. Is there some way of doing this? And I hope outside of using the Asset Editor which always crashes for some reason.

      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I have compiled a list here of the SimCity series and related games, including the more famous ones as well as independent projects and links to various other related games.
      Please feel free to mention any relevant games and link this post to other SimCity forums as I will be updating this list over time. Some of the games in the list I found in the forums here. My goal is to make a sort of archive list of any modern city builder games so if you are looking for something older, newer, different, similar, etc you can use this list as a reference. I also recommend checking out the Mobygames database - here is a list of city builder games, merchant/trade builder games and transportation network builder games.
      If you are into ancient and medieval city building games I have also posted a similar topic in the Heavengames forums here and a copy of that thread as well as a thread of linked threads in the City Builder Games forums here. The list below will contain games from any modern city building genre, as long as there is some kind of minimal amount of building involved.
      There are a bunch of independent modern city builder games so there is a lot of potential for a new SimCity sequel or new type of game, whether done in a classic 2d style or 3d style, either developed by a big company or independently. One promising example of independent development is the ancient military rts game 0AD, which can be interpreted as a remake of Age of Empires but in 3d, more historically realistic and the game will be fully moddable - so it seems there are still ways that the rts and city building game genres can evolve.
      Maybe creating a game engine, code, or game that could be custom modded is possible at this point after over a couple decades of various city builders. A game where people could modify the setting to include various modern urban settings such as a pre-Industrial age, early Industrial age, modern age, various post-Industrial age settings, alternate histories, scifi, alien, fantasy and alternate/"what if" past, present, and future settings would be interesting. A recent example of a futuristic scifi/fantasy city-building game is Anno 2070 which is included below.
      I have added some games in this list which are not directly related to modern city building. For example the Rise of Nations and Empire Earth series are military rts games, but they feature a modern age setting either in an age-progression or standalone-age game. I also added Spore and related games and programs to this list because they are and expanded version from city to global scale building. So I felt it would be interesting to include it here as it might open up some possibilities for new game finds and ideas. As some know, the final Spore game came out to be different from the 2005 video demo, so there is still untapped potential in the genre of biological simulation and global civilization building games.

      List of related rts and city builder projects and discussions:
      - 0 AD (2000, ?) - an ancient military rts game, sort of a Age of Empires 3d "remake" but better, is open for game testing and and will have the option for custom modding.
      - Glest (2004) - is a game engine for fantasy rts games.
      - Zero-K (2010) - is an open source futuristic military rts game.

      Also see:
       
      A list of fantasy and sci-fi rts and city builder games here, here, here

      So some options for new city builder games may be the following:
      - mod the existing games in some ways such as the many SimCity 4 mods for something different
      - research existing and past attempts at independent games that weren't completed and use some of the data if allowed and/or work on completing them
      - create new games independently from scratch which will take time if funds and talent is limited, but is certainly possible
      - it's up to gamers to post on various forums, social networks, and game mod websites to generate interest and potential collaborations
      - ideally an open source version of a city building game can be made where anyone can go in and mod it to add any historical time periods and civilizations or completely new settings, including ancient, medieval, pre-industrial, modern, post-industrial, alternate history, fantasy, scfi, alien, custom, any specific historical time/culture/location, etc.

      Hey guys! so with the hint of a road modding tool in the next DLC arriving, and presuming it's something like Network Extensions let's discuss what roads would be cool to add!
       
      I've looked at the source code of Network Extensions and I've looked at their textures etc so I want to make a start at creating textures for roads. for that i need suggestions! 
      Rules: 
      Use https://streetmix.net/new to visualise your road. I won't even consider ones that are just some random description For roads you want to zone on: use either 16m wide roads or 32m wide roads as those are the two widths that work with zoning. For highways you can use any width lanes for cars, trams, buses etc should be 3m in width. parking should be 2m wide sidewalks should be at least 2m wide (maybe 1.5m at the smallest) and this is for either side of the road, so at least 4m of sidewalk altogether! try and keep in mind that it's not about creating new types of prefabs like MOM, it's for reskinning like we do with Network Skins! Here's some examples of Vanilla Roads visualised in StreetMix
      a 16m Wide Basic Road:

      And a 32m Wide Medium Road

       
      You can click on the above links to be taken to a template in streetmix.
      Give me inspiration!
