BetterImageOverlay is a mod for Cities: Skylines that allows you to show and control an image over your terrain, so you can easily use it as a template for building your city.

The image has to be located at "[Steam Skylines Folder]/Files/overlay.png".

BetterImageOverlay is an improvement over ImageOverlay that gives you more control over the image, allowing you to toggle, position, rotate and change the size of the picture.

The image is controlled using the keypad:
- TOGGLE image: keypad ENTER key
- MOVE image: keypad ARROWS
- ROTATE image: keypad 7 and 9 keys
- RAISE image: keypad PERIOD key
- LOWER image: keypad ZERO key
- ENLARGE image: keypad PLUS key
- REDUCE image: keypad MINUS key

As this is not currently working with the current version of the game - it has been marked incompatible.

Would also be willing to donate to get this up and running again. It was an excellent Mod.

@Manforce: Definitely would contribute to get this one going again. I was just about ready to get Moscow and Berlin going when the pink square thing happened.

Would be happy to donate to the creator of this mod to get it updated. Anyone else happy to contribute so we could make it worth his while and get this sorted out?

Looking into this more, something to do with material or shader stuff in the code that makes it magenta/purple. Unfortunately, I don't know much about C# coding or using Unity engine (Cities Skylines is based on the Unity engine) to correct it myself.

But when I decompiled it with dotPeek, some changes might have to be done under the LoadingExtension public class as it has code referring to textures and materials and shaders.
