Check our official mods forum:
http://www.townsgame.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=22

I think that Towns++ doubles or triples the original game content

I installed it but it is crashing the game... Any suggestions?

Maybe the mod is not v12b compatible (but I think it was). Let me contact the mod creator. Maybe you can also try it using our forums.

Take your time... I belive it was compatible. It's probably the fact that my computer isnt really up to par... If you could, try and find out what the system requirments should be for the mod... Thanks a bunch! Love the game!

I also have another question for you as the developer... On Steam, there is a new game called Gnomoria. Do you think this is a direct copy of Towns?

I'm not a Dev, but if I may:

Gnomoria and Towns were started at roughly the same time, and their early development was very similar. They did branch significantly (well, Towns turned away from the path it was on and went in a new direction, while Gnomoria kept on the same path) when Towns hit 0.5, and now they're very different games although they share some gameplay elements. The towns Devs have actually supported Gnomoria on the official Towns forums, so there certainly isn't any grievance on thier part.

For the record, both are great games =)

Thanks YetiChow.

About the mod, you know how a mod is installed? We will need to create some tutorials.

To install a mod, you should unzip it in the mods folder. That folder should be located at:
USERFOLDER/.towns/mods

The USERFOLDER is Operating System dependant, so on Windows it should be:
C:/Documents and Settings/YOURUSERNAME
or
C:/Users/YOURUSERNAME/

Once you have the mod in the corect folder you can enable/disable it in-game, using the "Mods" menu on the main menu

Alright thanks... I suppose if it dosnt work there are other mods out there!

Hey Alfred! If you're installing Towns++ it doesn't go in the .towns/mods folder like supermalparit said. Towns++ hasn't been converted into the mod manager format, so you need to overwrite your vanilla towns files with the modded ones! Hope that helps!
Alfred Apr 20, 2013 @ 9:43am 
Hey thanks... Could you briefly summarize how to do that?
LittleMikey Apr 20, 2013 @ 6:54pm 
Sure! Simply download the .zip file (not sure if I'm allowed to post links here so I won't), and open up your Towns directory. This is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\towns by default. Open up the .zip file, double click on the Towns-plus-plus folder, and you should see several files including a data directory. Simply copy all those files to your main Towns directory and load Towns as normal. You will know it has worked if your game doesn't explode and the font on the main screen is different. We are working on a new title page, but niether BlueSteel (the creator) or I have any real graphics experience so it's taking a while!

Links are fine on Steam. They just pop up a warning telling people to be careful of links posted on the forums and wash their hands of any potential problems. Dunno if they'd ban you if you made a habit of posting bad links but that doesn't really matter if you're not doing that.
