So I created a mod manager for SC5 which can be found here:

 

This thread is intended to suggest ideas for the manager, report bugs, or simply leaving a nice comment about it.

 

Thanks for your support.

  • Nothing works. If i browse to the folder, the list's empty. Then if i click a button - program crash. Nothing works!

    Try deleting the SimcityModManager Folder in your documents folder first, then rerun the program.

    I would like to improve this mod manager. (Maybe make this open-source?)

    Which language is written? Visual Basic or C#?

     

    EDIT: This thing is soooo big for 1366*768.

    I'll consider making it open source. It's written in Visual Basic, and I will fix the window size sometime soon hopefully :D. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I have a solution for window size problem.

    Use the anchor or Panel+Dock.

     

    Making it open source would be great as I am developing a better way to "disable" the mods, I just need the code of grid-listbox. :)

    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.

    Are you sure you set the directory correctly? Remember it is the Simcity Folder as a whole instead of just the data folder.

    Yes I know which folder to select.  The folder I selected is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCity"  the mod manager can't find this path for some reason.  I can send you the debug file and a screencap of what happens when i click install.

  • Please for the love of god allow to put import more than one mod into the program at a time.

    I have the update all set for it, I just can't update the mod on ST Exchange. Have no idea as to why.

    1. The Install popup window is not work after Enter. Only Mod installed when I closed it with mouse right click in windows task bar.

    Also popup windows are small size, I can't resize with mouse drag and sometimes buttons are not showen in the windows.

    Please insert done button in the install popup window and resize the popup windows.

     

    2. Some mods have scrip file and they must be installed in SimCityUserData\Packages folder.

    How can I install them with this Mod manager?

    I can't change install path even though I check Install to other folder in popup windows.

        Site Upgrade Announcement   
        I'm pleased to announce @Dirktator has confirmed that today, Simtropolis is scheduled to receive a significant site upgrade. In the process we'll be incrementing the site's version to ST9.0. The latest major update to the IPS Suite will be applied to bring a whole host of new and exciting features.
        Most notably:
         
        Reactions This will give more flexibility to describe why you like a content item.
        It'll allow Reactions to be tailored to best suit our community, such as with custom sets & icons.
          Recommended Replies A way for helpful, informative or useful replies to be highlighted inside a thread.
        Will be a way of drawing attention to popular posts, including those providing answers to the OP's question.
          Content Messages Allow announcements or important info to be seen within a content item.
        Uses may include thread guidelines, reminders to follow, or even useful info for reference (e.g. links or images).
          Promoting Content A range of possibilities to improve the accessibility of content. STEX files, CJs, forum posts, the whole lot.
        Social media options can be explored, such as to connect with the site's Twitter as a content stream.
          Fluid Forum View Optionally view the forum via a topic list or grid mode instead of traditional categories.
        This is configurable for all users via a toggle, so it's possible to easily switch between the views.
          Editor Uploading Improvements Simplified ability to attach images and files to a post.
        Now possible to drag & drop into specific locations, without needing to insert manually.
          Gallery Improvements A range of enhancements for uploading Gallery images.
        Usability improvements also introduced for albums, and also the navigation with the image lightbox display.
          City Journals Sidebar CJ authors can optionally add a sidebar with information about their entries.
        This uses the post editor, so text or other media can be added. HTML access available on request.
          Letter Profile Photos The default avatar replaced with a random coloured background, featuring the 1st character of a username.
        This will only affect users who haven't changed their avatar from the anonymous grey silhouette.  
        There's also the Clubs feature, which will restore a similar functionality to the old Groups. The advantage here is it's integrated and built into the core software, whereas previously it was a 3rd party plugin that was made incompatible. We won't be rolling out the Clubs immediately, but we have some ideas on how they can be used more effectively this time around, since they'll allow more options.

        Plus a visual overhaul and an assortment of other minor changes.
        Along with a few other surprises in store coming soon, so watch out for those too...
         
        Expected Downtime   
        Since this is a larger update than usual, the site may be unavailable for a slightly longer period. It's scheduled anytime from 12pm noon EDT / 4pm UTC onwards (view clock), and we anticipate this will be no more than 1 hour.
        Should the downtime be prolonged, please check our Twitter feed for progress updates.
         
        Bugs & Stability   
        The new version has been released in a client beta for several weeks, meaning stability has been tried & tested. However as is common with any new software product, there's a chance for undetected bugs to crop up when applied in unique environments. Please bear with us if there are any instabilities to start with, and report them below or in the bugs thread.
         
        Feedback   
        We'd love to hear ways the site and the above features can be improved or best implemented. If you've any ideas feel free to share them below. We'll also be opening threads specifically to gain feedback on specific aspects within the next several weeks.
         
        Thanks everyone, and we hope you enjoy the new site!

        General Feedback Thread - 

        To help pass the time until the Awards Ceremony, here's a place to share your experiences of the new Trixies format. 
        What went well, and how can they be improved for next year? 

        As you're likely aware, this Trixies introduced various changes. Not only being the first time multiple years (2015 & 2016) were combined, but notably nominations were accepted in a special forum, allowing you to post and edit them in private. Based on your ideas, the Default Awards List was also created, and intended to provide a suitable baseline to cover the wide range of site contributions.
        In summary, here's a few possible possible topics of discussion:
         
        Award Categories
          Total available default awards: 101 Custom Content: 34 City Journals: 40 Community: 27
          Too little?  Just right?  Too many? Spread between categories. Coverage of types/themes? Any confusion or conflicting awards? Did the descriptions help or hinder?

          Nomination Process
          How did you find it compared to years gone by? Were the instructions clear and easy to follow? Was it helpful to edit and view your nominations? Any issues along the way?
          Duration of nomination period: 23 days (including the 2 day extension). Too short?  Just right?  Too long?

          Trixies Build-up
          Interviews To what extent were they helpful / enlightening? Types of questions asked? Format / presentation. More for next year?
          Content lists (2015 / 2016) Did they help with your decision making? Were they a useful reference? Should all content have been included in the lists? Grouping per author or per category?
          Community discussion How could this work better in future?
          Anything else which could be done in build-up?

          Trixies Promotion
          Too sparse?  Just right?  Too excessive? When did you first become aware of the Trixies this time? How useful was the info banner at the top?  Should anything else have been included? Were the countdown timers helpful? Visibility of the Trixies forum. Should any other banners have been added? Homepage features -- were they useful or too repetitive?

          Anything else?
          Post away!  
        We're always looking to improve the Trixies, and this was really a learning experience for everyone. Hopefully it worked well as a comeback after being absent for such a long time. But like anything, there's always room for improvement going forward.
        So if you've any comments or suggestions (even not on the above list), big or small, please post below and we'll take them into consideration. Feel free to post multiple times in this thread to your heart's content.
        And of course, you don't have to answer all the above questions -- they're just pointers.
        Thanks!

        Hey guys so I've been working on a new map for Cities: Skylines and I'm looking for some feedback and help!
        First of all some basic info on the map. It's intended to be a sort of challenge map and I'm using ships instead of outside road connections. Later on I will reach the air routes and use those as well. Also I plan on using an 81 tile mod with all unlocked from start so I can reach the ports. So I started this map by using a youtube tutorial to make the basic terrain and then used some really basic Wilbur techniques to kinda clean it up. My mountains ended up really bumpy and jagged so I smoothed them out a bit in C:S and added some more small features like waterfalls, sand, resources, etc. and this is the mostly finished product and I'm using the Rhinestone Island Theme in these screenshots.
        That being said I do have a few small issues with it that I could use some help with.

         
        First and foremost would be to find some better trees for the forests, I used the vanilla tree's with leaves #2 and they don't quite fit in too terribly well, so if you guys know any custom asset trees you think would look nice let me know.


         
        I used a custom palm tree asset for the beaches and I quite like it but I could use some tips on placement

         
        Also some of my mountains look a bit just plopped down and bland. I've tested a few themes that add a bit nicer and more textured mountains, but I don't like the sand or something else from them, but I've only tested about 10 so any suggestions in that regard would be appreciated. And really I would rather just know how to make decent mountains than rely on a theme.

         
         
        Really any and all feedback/criticism/tips are welcome. I'm new here and when I do finish the map I might try and make a city journal once I start on the actual city part of it. Here's a couple more shots of the map.
        Thanks so much in advance!

        Hey everyone,
        With the conclusion of the NAM Showcase, it saw the end of the second ST Challenges season. Now on a break, we’d like to welcome your suggestions and ideas. How can they be improved for the next season? What went well, and what would make the events even more fun and engaging?
        We’ve got a few ideas of our own, but specifically we’d like hear your thoughts on:
         
        The Challenges
        - New theme ideas: Please post in the "Ideas Bank" topic, where ideas can be collected.
        - More challenge types -- E.g. Gameplay tasks, such as population or using / creating certain plugins.
        - User-hosted events: Should these be brought back in some form?
          Submissions
        - Would it help to raise the image size limit (e.g. to 3 MB per image)?
        - Always allow more than one image? Like the NAM Showcase allowing 3 per author.
        - Length of the submission / voting periods for the challenge types.
          Voting
        - Thoughts on the current method of voting.
        - Should authors be made anonymous until after voting? They could be changed to a "placeholder" account before being revealed.
          Ranking System
        - Has it worked well so far?
        - Any small tweaks?
          Rep Prizes
        - Change amounts awarded?
        - Expand the places which gain rep (e.g. top 5 or 10)?
        - Also for the Best Picture Comp -- Rep for round wins + entering the Hall of Fame?
          Scheduling
        - How frequently should they run: Is the balance right?
        - Run more simultaneous challenges?
        - Use the calendar to plan the events a few weeks in advance? Would this make it easier to prepare for entries?  
        Please also let us know any other suggestions you have.
        These events aren’t possible without your participation, so we’d like to give you chance to shape their next direction.
        Thanks!
