Hello everyone,

Long time since I've been very active.  Jumped back into making game content, this time for Cities Skylines.  Been working on a new modular airport for way too long and finally starting to put the finishing touches on it.  This is my 1st unveiling and I'll probably be working on it for another month before releasing.


When I started out to make this monstrosity, I had small goals to just make some simple modular airport pieces.  I was always unhappy with how the nightlights in a modular building looked, always coming on at different times.  When the nightlights were on all the time, I didn't like the look of it either.  So I learned how to make Clear glass props.  Nice.  So then I had to model the insides of the buildings, then figure out the pathing, the roads I use to simplify laying things out broke the paths.  So I learned how to make new roads and offset the pedestrian paths.  Then I thought that I wanted to be able to have a working skytrain system going to different parts of the airport.  So I had to learn how to make a proper elevated train station and a new rail line that could be bent at 90 degree angles to fit in the buildings.  On and on it went until now I feel confident enough to unveil this to the community, warts and all.

There are about 30 buildings in the set, a boatload of glass props, 4 roads and about 30 props (not glass).  This will not be for the faint of heart.  I made this airport shone in about 3 hours.  This is not a "plop and go" building.  Remember that some airports are like little cities themselves.  So all these resources for an airport aren't all that bad...right?


Almost forgot to mention the parking garage with the skywalks and integrated metro station will be released with this too.  As a side note, I spent a lot of time making a station for the skytrain in the garage and making it go into the terminal building.  Not happening at this stage.  For now I have given up on that folly.


The modular 8 level parking garages will have 11 buildings and I made 2 new parking lot light props for them.


Don't be shy and tell me what you think.  Just be gentle please.

Welcome back! I remember your modular parking houses, and I am sure, there are only a few out there, who don´t use your cars if playing SC4.

This new project reminds me to your older things. Not really an architectural beauty but very, very useful. Especially I like the transparent glass, something I´ve never seen In C.S before, wow!

  • hello eufl,

    Thanks.  These are meant to be more of a work-a-day airport, not an architectural beauty.  Besides, I am not talented enough to create a very attractive building.

    Holy crap, this is insane! Don't worry that it's not a stunning masterpiece like other buildings out there, there's  always gonna be some trade-offs. This is a masterpiece in its own way, the details and everything that you've put in is crazy!

        Hi guys!

        I recently bought a new gaming laptop and installed Cities Skylines on it with all of the major expansions/DLCs. I got two problems that I'm not sure what to do about:

        1) The 81 tile mod by BloodyPenguin does not automatically unlock all of the tiles. It will let me buy each tile until I can fill the map, but not all unlocked and free at the beginning as the mod is supposed to (I've tried pressing Shift+U, doesn't work).

        2) When loading any map the loading screen might freeze at 50%. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't.

        To get past both of these problems, I have tried removing all mods and playing just the base game. This is a new laptop so I'm only loading blank maps. None of this has helped solve these two problems. Cities Skylines is also the only game I have installed - in case I have to reset the laptop to factory settings to fix this, that's ok.

        My specs:
        Processor - i7-7700HQ
        Graphics - GTX 1060
        Memory - 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, DDR4

        FANTA1990 Presents:
        A Complete replacement of default civilian airplanes sharing a common fictional theme. Each model was adapted from Microsoft Flight Simulator 9 (2004) with exception to the Voltaire which uses an original texture featuring propeller engines, and the Crop Duster which was cloned from Tropico4. The planes all sport the same color scheme and logo of World Travel Airlines (WTA), the sole carrier in Sim Nation. Since this is essentially an automata reskin, there are no dependencies and no configuration. It's an easy way to improve the realism and appearance of the game's otherwise drab portrayal of manned flight.  Nightlighting remains intact and UDI is still available for the landing strip aircraft.
        Choose from the following two files:
        FS2004 World Travel Airlines Plane V3.5.zip - Uses HD textures, but requires Hardware Acceleration to avoid visual defects.
        FS2004 World Travel Airlines Plane V3.5-256.zip - May be used with Software Acceleration.
        *** This mod was originally posted along with many other spectacular creations by Fanta Soda on his SimCity China homepage with the following URL: http://www.SimCity.cn/thread-99303-1-1.html
        Fanta has taken great lengths to make his site accessible to English speaking users. However, I encourage you to exploit the automatic translation features available in browsers such as Chrome and Firefox, or one of many Add-ons for Internet Explorer. Mandatory registration will unlock Fanta's downloads and all other custom content on SimCity China. A login prompt and two verification screens may seem excessive, but are well worth it.
        Since Fanta spends considerable time manufacturing custom mods, he specifically requested my assistance publishing his work to the mainstream English speaking audience. All credit and responsibility for this download lies solely with Fanta Soda. He will personally read and perhaps respond to any praise, feedback, criticism, or suggestions to this post. More impressive works from Fanta will follow.

        Unzip to: Documents/Simcity/Plugins/PEGPROD/Mountain Theme Pack/ABCVS/Aviation/Mountain Airbases
