Unlimited Outside Connections Revisited 1.1



BloodyPenguin's original Unlimited Outside Connections mod is no longer functioning as of the 1.15 (Plazas & Promenades) game update. The changes required to fix this were more than simple tweaks, and this mod has been resurrected to carry on the functionality.

Place as many roads and railways with outside connections as you want in-game or in MapEditor.
Simply select the network you want to make the connection with, and build it across the map edge (either from the map outwards, or from outside the map inwards).

Reaching the map edge
Obviously, you'll need a mod that enables you to build to the map edge (this mod won't do that on its own), such as 81 Tiles 2.

Use with the Network Anarchy mod to add outside connections using roads that don't normally connect to the outside.

Network Anarchy
Make sure that Network Anarchy is set to 'default' mode (not forcing ground/elevated/bridge/tunnel) when making outside connections, otherwise they won't work. Outside connections are a special type of road 'elevation' and the tool needs to be free to select that automatically (and not overriden by anarchy).

Ship and airplane paths
This mod also lifts the limit on these (use Find It to access the networks themselves in-game), but be aware that new airplane connections placed in-game may behave strangely, so be careful.

Safe to unsubscribe at any time; this mod doesn't modify savegames (note, though, that if you've created more than four connections of any type the game won't like it unless you're running either this mod or the original).

Credit where credit is due
Huge thanks to BloodyPenguin, the author of the original mod!

This mod uses Harmony[] version 2.2 by Andreas Pardeike via the Cities Harmony mod by boformer.

Same issue for me, train outside connection is broken. Anarchy is off and still no green arrows. i accidently deleted my train connection with delete (on move it)... now i cant trace it back. it says its loaded but i have only 1 train, 1 ship, 1 highway and one plane connection. and it says its loaded. I have 53k citizens. Do i have to unsubscribe anarchy ? :'(

@King Arron II Nothing's changed with this mod for nearly a year-and-a-half now and it still works.

Most commonly what you're seeing is when you're trying to make outside connections using network types that don't support it (e.g. most custom networks, or networks with zoning).

The second most common reason is that you're using Network Anarchy and have the elevation setting set to something other than 'default'.

The third most common reason is that you're using a conflicting mod (typically one of the older mods that appear to work but in fact now quietly break things in the background).

This mod says it's loaded but hasn't worked for months now. I can connect networks to the edge of map, but no green arrow or 'outside connection' appears

@algernon Alright, thank you for the answer

@bazometr This doesn't affect existing connections at all. There are many mods that can cause that issue you've described, but this isn't one of them.

I've built a city with 140k population and have built the huge airport using Airports DLC. Everything was functioning fine but recently, i noticed that not a single plane arrives or departures from my airport. I checked the outside connections on the edges of a map and i saw huge piles of people stacked but not a single airplane is spawning for them. I have never touched these outside connections, they are all orginal. The only thing that i added with this mod is one road outside connection which functions fine. I am running this map with 65 mods, so maybe the issue is not with this mod, but if anybody has any idea what causes this problem, i will be very happy for your answer).

@slavonator You'll need to use Move It to delete the existing shipping connections, but it might be unstable - make sure you make a backup first and test to make sure that things are working properly afterwards.

This will enable you to add new shop connections (use Find It to access the shipping path network tool).

@algernon I can't figure out how to delete the existing shipping routes and replace them with others. My point is that the routes that were originally on the map now also go through the mainland, because I have new islands and new canals built. you know what I mean? is it possible to use this mod to create routes exactly according to my new water channels and delete those that were on the map? thank you in advance for your help as always and especially for everything you do for this community.
