Game not working after installing mods

Hello fellow mayors.

I've followed many instructions to install mods for my game on a Macbook, and they are not working. I have previously installed an update that gave me one-way streets but I think it was an automatic update, months and months ago. So I've had one-way streets and don't see any UDON packages in the folder except the one I just installed. 

I've even uninstalled/reinstalled SC after deleting the installed files and redone the whole process, but not working.

I can see the new UI with all the extra buttons now, but they don't have any content. I've attached a screen shot of the SimCityData folder - is something missing?

Thanks in advance - I am totally addicted to this game.

Did you install all the mods at the same time without testing them one at a time first?  If you did, uninstall all the mods. Get the game working in an un-modded state.  Then install one mod.  Run the game and see if it works.  If it does, then install the next mod.  Repeat the process until you reach a mod that either doesn't work or conflicts with another mod and makes it stop working.  If you find a mod that doesn't work, either don't install that mod or search online to see if there is a solution to get it working.

Remember, do one change at a time.  If you make a lot of changes at once, it becomes almost impossible to troubleshoot an issue.

  • Thanks Prophet42.

    I dragged the entire SC app into the trash, then reinstalled from Origin. It ran fine on a new game and my saved games were there. I quit the app, d/l the akar package and put in the SimCityData folder. I ran SC again and the extended UI is there, but without content on the new buttons (see attached). Then I d/l the UDON package, ran SC and nothing had changed. I quit SC, quit Origin and restarted both. Still no contents to the new buttons. I'm stopping now until I know what to do next. Getting the joneses here...

        Hello everyone. This will be my custom content showcase and workshop thread. In all the years I been a member here, I never uploaded any content but enjoying great work by other members. I take this opportunity to say Thank You to all content makers for making our city building experience so enjoyable. I feel that making content is overdue for me and I want to give back to the community. I have some buildings and trees that I will be showing in upcoming updates to this thread. I will also be asking for advice and help.

        So I was recently looking at some Japan driving videos and got inspired to make some highway pillars.
        I'm planning to make an entire set of various types of pillars in this style, even a 6cell over-canal pillar. (if it goes okay)
        Tell me what you think about my first attempt, I need to nail the style and the details before I start making other variations.
        Constructive criticism welcome, also any ideas.
        By the way, do pillars have LODs like regular buildings? I should just make it just the pillar, without the small details - pipe, wires, supports.
        Not sure when they're going to be done and available.

        So, today I´ve began an expansion plan in my city, to create some new highways and develop the town around them, so I went out and downloaded a few intersections from the workshop, here´s the intersections I downloaded: 
        I replaced the vanilla T intersection with the trumpet one I downloaded, replaced a normal intersection with this really small roundabout and just placed the windmill one.
        And then suddenly my industry and offices said they can´t sell their goods even though I have plenty of commercial, also a lot of dead people turned up. Traffic isn´t that bad, it was like this already. What happened to my city? How can I fix it?

        Hi, folks!
        It has been several years since I have played SC4 and all my old files are lost in time. I wondered if anyone could tell me the best (or updated) apps that are considered awesome. Like, what is the most recent NAM called? Can I still find those old seawalls for building ports, special buildings and stuff? Does the cheat DLL still exist?
