Kinda. I mean, they'd be trees which means they'd sway in the wind. So not ideal. Depending on how it works you could prop also use other "trees" like bushes or grass for the effect while using a prop for the looks next to it.

Yes.. Maybe it could be possible, that you could put this attribute on props or buildings. But the idea with bushes and other trees sounds also good.

Whether they do C:SL 2 depends really, what with the reception the game is getting now from some of the community, CO/Paradox may not bother making it..  Since it seems that a fair portion of the city building game community come across as a very fickle lot..
 

C:S has been pretty successful, and I think that a lot of the pushback has been bugs, features, and many others that people have talked about but have repeatedly been ignored. I don't even think they really realize that the only reason they got so far was because SimCity (2013) was scorned by the fanbase. Collecting every idea and suggestion from players, doing research, spending a lot of time in Google Earth all over the world, etc. and then coming out with a nicer-looking, more functional city sim that blows C:S away would be incredible, but I just can't imagine the developers doing that.

I agree. Developing a new game is also very expensive. And taking into account that Skylines got a lot of new features with all the DLCs I can't imagine why CO would make a new version. I think for most people the features are more important than graphics, besides, you can alter general appearance a lot with mods, luts, and themes. I think it is more likely that CO would roll out an update in the future which includes some improvements in graphics than that they would develop an entirely new game from scratch.

In general I really like the general direction the developers have with Cities: Skylines. The general idea with releasing themed DLCs for around $15,- and including some improvements in a free patch-update is pretty solid. People might not like every DLC but in general the way CO handles updates is pretty good in my opinion. And off course there are still some flaws that need to be discussed. To be honest I don't like every DLC and I still miss some in my opinion essential features. However, CO is also trying to listen to the community and meet their demands. More than most game-developers at least. So maybe we see some of the suggestions made by the community in future DLCs, improving the game further.

Oh they do realise! The dream for Colossal Order was always to make a city building game, but Paradox wasn't sold on the idea until SimCity2013 had it's horrible launch. If EA hadn't messed up so much with that game we might not even have Cities: Skylines. :P There's a video where Mariina talks about all that - if you'd like to see it I and dig up the link for it. :) It's basically a talk about how the game came to be and how CO started.

One reason I could see them develop a sequal would be to deliver on some of that stuff we can't get with the current minimum requirements. Like seasons or higher limits. A new game vs a DLC/update would also be a chance to change how the game loads stuff. We could really do with some lazy loading instead of what we have now, where every single asset you can possibly place is loaded. Medium density is another thing I highly doubt they'll add through a DLC, but it would make sense to have something like that in a completely new game. There's definitely some changes that are so big it makes more sense in a new game than a DLC. But I think we're still years away from that!

In a new CS they could solve the problem of not having waves as well as improving the water texture.

 

The water seems to be too dense and does not flow as it really should.

Hmm, I have paid for it - downloaded it and installed...

It all seems the same, where are the features? I can see a few new school types but no parks!

It isn't released yet. All you downloaded was whatever files contain which DLCs you have, it's basically just a switch. But as the game hasn't updated to the Parklife patch yet, you don't have any of the new content. That also means mods aren't affected at all. Until we get the patch the 24th there's no new content and no issues with mods. We're practically all running the same version of the game no matter which DLCs we have or don't have, which is why we don't need different versions of mods for whatever DLCs you have. Which is also why you get a patch without buying the newest DLC. :)

@poshbakerlooProbably has not yet been released, as the official launch is May 24. But are MODs flowing well or is there an error?

Everything is working fine, I didn't realise Park Life wasn't actually released yet! Thanks.

Don't expect a sequel to Cities Skylines anytime soon. The game has been so  successful and there is still plenty of life in it yet as far as the devs are concerned. I would predict CSkylines 2 around 2022. CO are still developing new dlc and the community has invested a great deal in the base game and various dlc packs- it is still a strong seller - it has no serious rival so there is no pressure on CO to develop a successor as yet. Why kill the golden goose when it's still laying those eggs?

If you have new schools, it means you bought green cities but not parklife. Sorry, you bought the wrong DLC.

There are a lot of things fundamentally flawed with C:S, including scale of buildings, the way zoning and road building works, the traffic model, deathwaves, the whole underlying simulation/challenge etc., and while I suppose they could be done with patches, it seems a bit impractical to rip out and replace whole chunks. Plus, like Cities XL, they never quite managed to have curved roads without creating massive dead space between lots.

These "official" gameplays do nothing to promote the quality and depth of the new Park Life DLC. I watched Biffa's You Tube preview last night- 30 minutes well structured excellent communication- That preview blew me away! It really showcased the DLC. Park Life will be the most successful Skylines DLC to date. The quality of new content is superior to any previous package. Have they employed some new designers? The increased simulation is also welcomed. This is a DLC that I will continue to use well after launch!

Yeah unfortunately the official video was pretty much meh..  But do you mean this video?  Yeah Biffa's video is certainly very in depth and shows a lot of what is coming and well I am very impressed with what is coming to this DLC when Parklife releases next Friday.. :)  I am going to be all over the DLC when it comes and back into C:SL as have been holding off playing since I heard of this DLC..

And here is his latest Parklife Video..

      Hi there,
      I've been told to post here in a comment to my reddit post, I hope that this is the correct section.
      I'm not a modder and I don't have enough experience with Unity3d/time to do this by myself, so I'm posting here to see if someone can help me.
      My mod allows to build parallel roads easily, and judging from the response on the linked reddit post, it's something that a lot of players were waiting for. However, for the reasons stated before, I can't seem to be able to create a good and working UI, meaning that I won't be able to release it in a short timeframe.
      Here's what I need:
      A draggable window with tabs support for future updates (just like in Network Skins) Two buttons on top right corner, one is a checkbox used to enable/disable the mod while the other one is a button to add more rows in the panel below A panel containing a variable number of rows (either using a scrollbar or increasing the panel's height), items are added using the second button above Each row is composed by 2x UITextInput, a UIDropDown, 2x UIButton (one should be hidden on the first row only) The second button must have a "x" icon and it's needed to remove rows An icon showing two parallel roads with all the visual states needed for a checkbox An icon with an arrow pointing down (not just the triangle, I need the entire arrow), with the same requirements as the other icon What I have now? Just the template for the rows, and I'm not even sure if it's fully working.
      I understand that I'm asking a lot, but I can't really work on this UI because, besides the lack of time and knowledge, my dev environment is in a virtual machine and I can't even debug, making the entire experience quite frustrating.
      If someone is willing to help, here's a link to my GitHub repository.
      Thank you for your time!

      The taxiway needs some polishing, but I'm up against a hard stop with the runway currently. I have a functional asset, but it looks like garbage and I suspect it's because of the RoadAI that came over from my template. 
      Can changing network prefab AIs only be done with scripts/the existing workshop mod? I've gone pretty deep into the Scene Explorer in ModTools trying to find a way to overwrite the existing AI, but it all seems to loop back on itself in a giant circle, and the Asset AI Changer mod predates the Road Editor by quite a bit. I've hit the limit of my current knowledge/experience. 
      -----
      Anyway, the taxiway (which will get an update once I sort this AI issue out, hopefully) is live. Feel free to mess around with this to your heart's content:

      This is my first "real" mod. It's probably not as clean as it should be, but I'm hoping it'll be a template for future content. Thanks to @Badi_Dea for the ModTools tutoring.

      I fell like there is a simple solution to this problem but it is eluding me. In a previous post I was asking for help adding RICO settings to sub-buildings and I now have that sorted out. However, I have this problem where all my sub-buildings included in the RICO XML file are appearing in the UI panel as boxes (see image below). In the XML I deleted the ui-category="xxxx" for all the sub-buildings but that didn't do anything. I am out of ideas. In an old guide by AJ3D he mentions:
      I am not sure how to give procedural placement style to buildings though, or if this is even the right solution lol. Any help appreciated.

      In this first* installment of the Maxis renewal series, most of the basic Maxis parks, as well as some related rewards, have been re-lotted.
      Changes include general lot redecoration: most trees replaced with CP's seasonal and semiseasonal variants, sidewalk textures replaced with CP's SCILT textures and the green park's base replaced to match the open grass area, among other things.
      Lots overriden: Green parks, flower gardens, plazas, sportsfields, beach, minor and major league stadium facelift, mayor statues, farmer's market.
      Optional standalone lots included: koi pond garden, fenced sportfields, beach promenade extensions.
      These overrides require a considerable amount of dependencies:
      Buildingprop vol1 and 2 OR T-wrecks' Maxis Prop Name and Query Fix
      Maxis Parthenon and Stonehenge plugins
      SCILT (Linked to Maxis default version. choose any SCILT version you want)
      PEG MTP Super Resource Pack
      SHK Parking Pack
      Porkie Props Vol1
      Paeng Textures V104
      BSC Textures Vol02
      BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol 01
      BSC MEGA Props - CP Vol 02
      BSC MEGA Props - D66 Vol 02
      BSC MEGA Props - DAE Vol 01
      BSC MEGA Props - SG Vol 01
      BSC MEGA Props - Gascooker Vol 01
      BSC MEGA Props - JES Vol 03
      BSC MEGA Props - JES Vol 05
      BSC MEGA Props - JES Vol 09
      NUTs prop pack A
      *Technically second, as I consider the Grand Rail Station Facelift as part of the series
      Notes:
      As with any lot overrides, it's recommended to bulldoze any existing instances of these Maxis lot overrides in your desired region before (un)installing this plugin, otherwise it may lead to problems ranging from texture and prop mismatches to other issues. You can plop them back afterwards.
      Enjoy!
