      First of all, yes I know about using nlight's ModTools to change m_placementMode to OnGround to get parks that do not have to be placed on roads.  The problem I am having is that these parks still display the missing road connections warning (which is an eyesore) and also cannot get police coverage as shown in the screenshot below.

      I haven't seen any building properties that allow you to disable this (although if anyone knows a simple way of doing so please let me know). As far as I can tell, crime rate in the game seems to be based on a counter tied to the number of visitors a building receives. When this reaches a certain number a police car is summoned. I believe health care and hearses also work similarly. The mod I am proposing would therefore do the following:
      Not display the missing road connection icon for parks if (m_placementMode == OnGround) Automatically fix crime, health, or dead body problems for these parks. Allowing services to use pedestrian paths would be even better, but would probably require rewriting the service AI. (I know Traffic++ zonable pedestrian paths can do this but I hate using them). Add a button in the Park Asset Editor that lets you set the value of m_placementMode. This would just be for convenience and make this option more accessible to the casual player who doesn't want to mess around with the ModTools UI. I couldn't find any mods that currently offer this functionality, but if anyone knows of one let me know - it would save me a lot of work writing one myself. Looking at the modding API though, it doesn't look like any of what I am proposing would be too difficult. Although I haven't made any scripting mods for CS before, I am familiar with coding in C# and the Unity Engine. I figure this could be a good first project for me to start learning the modding API.
