[DEPRECATED] Building Theme: University City Districts - Do not use


Be sure to subscribe to the parent mod Building Themes by District Mod by boformer. Follow the activation steps, in images ^. Tip: you can only make a district of low residential and low commercial for this special district. Do not use this theme for other zone types and not for city wide districting either.

Want to keep your University City residential and commercial areas always University City? Here's the building style King Leno shows how to use in the official video above, all set up for you and ready to go.

Re: Building Themes by District Mod
Boformer's mod UI is really intuitive and easy to use (found in policies tab), but watch the video above and go see the Building Theme by District's page if you need more instructions and examples.

Be sure "Allow buildings not included in theme to spawn" is *not* activated. This prevents higher level buildings from spawning over the University City buildings. You can add any other building you like to this theme, workshop or vanilla. Use the ingame UI inside of Policies panel for the district.

Optional: once your district is the way you like it, you can switch all the buildings to historical with one click using a new boformer mod for historical districts , and they will continue leveling without losing their University City looks.


Mod used to add custom trees to the University City buildings: Prop It Up.

@PYRO yeah all it takes is just a little effort to enter the right buildings into a new theme you make yourself... but NOOOO... :D
I would take this down because it's annoying, but that's not fair to those who still want to have it available and know what to do with it. So... I persevere :steamfacepalm:

MrMiyagi, I am rolling on the floor right now. Unfortunately, the majority of subscribers can't, don't, or won't, invest the proper time to learn how to operate modified games; especially true in this game. They should really stick to vanilla.

LOL This is the first time I've heard what the actual problem was. If they couldn't figure that out on their own they probably don't need to using themes at all.

I heard about an "error" with it when I was trying to get things to work after the Airports update. Seems that was just plain lazy on my part for not looking into it more at the time.

Yup it'll work if you know what's up and that the error messages mean (nothing, it still works). It's just too much effort repeating the same explanation over and over that it's not an actual error but I can't do anything to take away the items in yellow. They just don't listen or read the many comments explaining it, so... better to turn those types off from using it in the first place. :steamfacepalm:

It's working for me too. I grabbed it again just to see if I could find out which commercial buildings were with it and it just works.

To be honest, I know the title says Do Not Use, but I find I can still use this theme and it seems to work fine for me. Many thanks.

Yes you can definitely make your own new theme from scratch, and include anything you want. That's basically the only thing we can do at this point anyway

So is there no way to make a new theme and add these to that theme? They don't pop up in the selection but I can still plop them.

Awesome, thanks so much! :steamhappy:

Sorry to hear that. If you ever come up with something else, I have GitHub, google drive etc.
