Berlin 2021 Modded


Global Build-Off: Berlin Edition
Use this map to participate in the Global Build-Off: Berlin Edition, sponsored by the Stadtmuseum Berlin, Paradox Interactive, and Razer Inc. The prize pool is 3,000 EUR + hardware from Razer! Submissions are due on April 30th, 2021.

We invite you to embrace your creativity and sharpen your building skills to submit your own interpretation of the famous Waisenbrücke and its surroundings in the Berlin city center. Give us your take on a modern and sustainable 21st century city, focusing on innovative solutions for visitors to access the different locations of the Museum without private cars, but also thinking about how the whole area around the bridge can participate in the visitors’ experience.

"The Waisenbrücke (Orphan Bridge) is one of the lost bridges of Berlin. For more than 250 years, it connected two important districts and played a vital part for the infrastructure of the city centre. When the Märkisches Museum was built in 1908, the Waisenbrücke also became an important factor for the museum visitors. The bridge was destroyed in World War II and was taken down in 1960. Since then, the development of Berlin has been centered around car-access. Today, Berlin wants to focus on the needs of pedestrians and cyclists. A new Waisenbrücke could fulfill this need and establish a modern, non-car connection for our museum locations and for all Berliners in the 21st century.

We are very happy to work with Paradox and Jason to propose this Global Build-off: Berlin Edition competition and are looking forward to your ideas!"
-- Sebastian Ruff, Head of eCulture at the Berlin Stadtmuseum

The Terrain
The 1:1 scale topography has been scraped from 1m-resolution real-world data provided by the City of Berlin. Regular aerial flights are commissioned and laser scan data is compiled, cleaned, and in many cases manually categorized. The data that we used represents only the ground layer, and not the man-made structures or foliage that exists on top of it. The accuracy of this map puts all of my previous map-making attempts to shame! Big thanks to the Berlin Senatsverwaltung für Stadtentwicklung und Wohnen for helping us find, understand, and use the various data products that they offer.

The Trees
Around 368,000 trees have been plopped exactly where they go! We have converted real-world tree information, including species, age, and height, into data that has been imported into Cities:Skylines. The trees are represented by 56 different custom workshop assets, many of which have been specially created for this project by the likes of Dennis “MrMaison” Beswick and Paul “pdelmo” Delmege. *note: These are by no means all of the trees in the map area -- there's plenty of work left for you (and the tree catalogers) to do!

The Overlays
Super high-resolution overlays have been created to be used with Overlayer v2 Mod. They match the terrain with perfect precision as they have been generated from datasets with the same cartographic projection methods. There are three different images that each come in four different versions.

Download the pack of 12 overlays here[]

  1. Custom diagram on a black background showing waterways, train tram & metro lines, streets, sidewalks, park paths, trees, and building footprints. This is my dream overlay!
  2. Same as above but with the competition locations marked
  3. An orthophoto overlay from the latest available aerial imagery from 2019

  • 16384x16384 pixels opaque
  • 16384x16384 pixels semi-transparent (20%) overlay
  • 4096x4096 pixels opaque
  • 4096x4096 pixels semi-transparent (20%) overlay

Required DLC, Assets, and Mods
Get these! Mass Transit DLC for the 2-lane highways, Ami's Berlin Trees collection for the 56 custom tree assets, and three mods so that you can see all of the trees and use the overlays. and the new Cities:Skylines BuildBase
[] is a new community website that hosts the Cities:Skylines BuildBase, a database for sharing MoveIt! Mod exports. Dozens of Berlin landmarks and mini-builds[] can be downloaded and "Restored" into their precise locations on this map with only a few clicks!

Great map, I just love it.
AmiPolizeiFunk  [author] Apr 14, 2023 @ 3:45am 
Glad to hear it! :steamhappy:

Map works perfectly fine, you don't really need Tree Anarchy just Mass Transit, the tree pack and Prop and Tree Anarchy
AmiPolizeiFunk  [author] Mar 12, 2023 @ 9:36am 
Did I not just say that any mods that I listed in the description in 2021 are most likely out-of-date? There are no assets in this map other than modded trees, vanilla roads, and mass transit DLC roads. To load all of the trees you now need Tree Anarchy by Quistar.

If I had any clue why a map would suddenly stop working, I would be happy to help fix the problem. I'm wondering if it has to do with mods, as the set of mods that work with each other has changed drastically in the last 6 months. Prop&Tree anarchy has been taken over, Unlimited Trees has been taken over, and many changes have been made to networks and tools that deal with networks. Any mods that I listed in the description in 2021 are most likely out-of-date.

@AmiPolizeiFunk is it possible to update this map so we don't have the blue screen problem.
This is the best map and it's a shame i cant play it, i tried safe mode but doesn't work

If you are having issues starting a new game on this map, try enabling Loading Screen Mod's safe mode options. I heard that worked for someone.
