Precision Engineering


Precision Engineering augments Cities: Skylines by adding angle snapping, guidelines and additional information to assist you when building roads, train lines, pipes and power lines.

Click the subscribe button above to install, then enable the mod in the Content Manager on the Cities: Skylines main menu.

Key Features
Note: For a more visual guide to the features, click here[].

- Adds angle and distance measurements when building roads, train lines, pipes and power lines.
- Hold CTRL to enable snapping to angles (in 5 degree increments).
- Hold SHIFT to enable additional information display.
- (NEW) Hold ALT to enable snapping to guidelines.
- Display height of the road you are placing relative to ground level
- Display height difference between start and end point of a road (when placing, holding SHIFT)
- Does not override the default NetTool, so should be compatible with most other mods.

Can be safely removed at any time. Does not modify your save game file or need to be active when loading a save that previously used this mod.

This mod uses the detours library[] created by cope. A big thanks to him for sharing that code, many mods on the workshop would not be possible without it.

Having Issues?
- Make sure you have the mod enabled in the Content Manager.
- Bugs/Crashes? Try disabling all other mods and running with just Precision Engineering enabled. If you are sure it is not caused by another mod, please post your logs in this thread and I'll try and take a look.
- I don't own any of the DLC so can't test with them installed. Users report that the mod works fine, however.

@Malstrom87 If you haven't already, try closing steam, then restart your pc and reopen steam. Helped me last time I subbed but it wasn't showing up

@Finwickle There is no Precision Engineering mod in the list of the mods. But I have it in the Steam Workshop in the end of the Content Manager menu where my subscriptions are shown. If it's important, I have v1.13.3-f9 version of the game

@Malstrom87: Mods have to be enabled in the Content Manager from the main menu of the game. But what do you mean by "don't see it in the Mods section"?

Can anyone help me? I'm a completely newbie in Cities: Skylines. I've subscribed to this mod and I see it in the Content Manager/ Steam workshop , but I don't see it in the Mods section. Tried to unsubscribe and subscribe again, reload game, remove other subscriptions. Nothing helps.

@Drift_91: Don't be too hard on yourself. It's pretty confusing when the 2.0 is older than the original. I'll add an extra note to Compatibility Report about it, as you suggested.

I'm so confused... Why is this newer than the 2.0 version? lol

Wasn't until I installed Upgrade Untouchable that I realized that Precision Engineering 2.0 is obsolete when it conflicted. I feel like an idiot now because I complained to the author of Compatibility Report that they'd incorrectly flagged this mod as the successor of the 2.0 version.

I just tried to load my game after being away for two days and I'm having the same problem as @kristian76 & ars.nyan2002 !! My game will load...but stutters so badly that I can barely click the button to shut it down. I get errors saying Precision Engineering can't load..etc. etc.

Hi Simie!
I sent you a pull request with a possible fix for the issues with Upgrade Untouchable. Hope you can update the mod here soon!
