AutoSave - Configurable

Subscribed

Description
Patch 1.1.1b includes native auto save!
This mod is therefore kind of obsolete ;) Thanks all for the subscriptions and ratings!

-----------

Automatically save your cities every couple of minutes (configurable, 5 minutes default)

The AutoSaver uses a single autosave slot per city (Make sure your city name is different from other cities). Be aware that you should not rely on this mod as you primary save slot. You should always save your city when you close the game.

-----------

Changing the save interval

After loading a city, this mod will make a configuration file in the steam directory, by default you can find that here:

Windows - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cities_Skylines\AutoSaveConf.txt
Mac - /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Cities_Skylines/AutoSaveConf.txt
Linux - /home/<username>/.steam/steam/SteamApps/common/Cities_Skylines/AutoSaveConf.txt

You can modify this config to change the interval in minutes. (Default is every 5 minutes)
If AutoSaveConf.txt does not contain a valid number ( 1...maxInt ) AutoSave will be turned off.
The new config will apply after you reload a city.

-----------

Steam achievements

To enable Steam achievements, use the Achievement Enabler mod

-----------

Make sure to disable any other autosave mod!

This mod is still needed the in game version crashes and has only one slot for all games.

Doing the same because the InGame Save SUCKS!!!
Still using your Mod because it's far better and like others said FAR FAR FAR away from being obsolete ;)
Thank you!

I got a lot of crashes while the game was autosaving so I disabled the game option and use this mod instead. No crash since...Far from obsolete indeed. Keep in mind this also overwrites a single file...

far from obsolete! the now-inbuild autosave overwrites the one autosave-file over and over, so obviously you'll loose the file if the game crashes during save. WTF are they thinking at CO????
(and btw - many complain about crashes during saves - atm the combination of traffic++ with "traffic manager" does exactly that, even though the traffic++-maker claims compatibility... so you may wanna check that out, folks...)

This mod causes crashes for me :/
So unfortunately I can't use it.

it works incorrect! (too much crashes) pls fix it.

It just crashes my game whenever it auto saves. It is a great idea though, please fix it.

The vanilla autosave doesn't work reliably. I spent an hour building two highway interchanges only to have the game crash. The only "Autosave.crp" was from yesterday.

Thank you for this mod as long as it was needed! Surely you must be knighted Savior of Cities :P

Thank you for providing what was a desperately needed feature.
