About This File

Many of you are familiar with the New Zones View in TSCT:

With the guidance of @rsc204 I was able to tweak the Zones Data View to my personal taste. I realize most of you could do this yourself, but I'm uploading mine in case anyone would like to use it. *;)

What this does is enable the game to also show the Traffic, the Water Connectors, the Retaining Walls and Tall Foundations on lots, and the Wildlife in addition to the Subway Tunnels of NAM's version. It hides the Trees which was my initial motivation for looking into (and learning) how to do this.

There are two files attached:

  1. Cori's Tweaked NetworkAddonMod_Zone_Data_View No Props.dat
  2. Cori's Tweaked NetworkAddonMod_Zone_Data_View With Props.dat

I personally don't care for showing the Props, but I believe that's an option in TSCT to show the neighbor connection arrows on roads and rails as well as the various Zots so I've included a With Props version too. Showing the props might also be useful for when there is a missing prop dependency and you want to see them without the buildings in the way.

To install, just drop one or the other .dat file into your Plugins Folder. This will work with plain vanilla if you like. For the other 99.9% of the peeps, you'll want to delete NAM's NetworkAddonMod_Zone_Data_View.dat file located in the Network Addon Mod folder. You can do that manually or just run TSCT and uncheck the top box for Use new Zones View then Save and it'll delete the relevant file for you.

For the curious, there are more specific details in my post here. Mostly this part for what hex value does what:
