ModTools (Fixed for 1.1+)

In 1 collection by BloodyPenguin

Version 3.3.0

ModTools is an in-game scene graph viewer and a toolkit for mods and assets authors. This version is compatible with C:S v1.1+ and has some new features.


This is my fix of nlight's awesome ModTools to make it compatible with C:S v1.1+.

Note: Read original ModTools' description first before use! ModTools may corrupt your save games or affect your gameplay experience in some unpredictable way.

Note: To use this version of ModTools you need to unsubscribe nlight's original ModTools first, and then subscribe to my version. They are different Workshop items

Hi, not certain if you're still checking these comments, but I've been having a weird error when importing.

Here is the log.

I unsubscribed all the mods. The error I receive is that the model has no tangents and that textures are missing, though I have created all the maps and it loads fine in blender.

Hi BloodyPenguin, thanks for the great mod. Is there a way to add a water pipeline (the function) to a simple prop for example? Or just the node of the function? My plan is to make an elevated pipeline system that supplies water by using props.

Hello, for 3 days ago, the game has not been running, it crashed and when I unsubscribe from it everything is fine, an error report comes out and I think I interpret that some other mods are not going well, however I already say that if I unsubscribe from ModTools everything is fine, and the other mods do not give failures, I don't know if the error report will be worth it.

Can someone suggest a tutorial for this mod? I am able to see and make changes to assets, but haven't figured out how to save/download the changes.

Hello and thank you very much for your great work on the mod "ModTools".

Unfortunately there are a few small problems with the export of road textures.

Have a link to a picture, hope it works.

In the lower half of the picture, you can see the original road, I exported this road with the mod "ModTools" and imported it for testing purposes back into Cities skylines without changes.

Unfortunately the diffius texture is not exported correctly, because it is much paler or has a grey haze, you can see this in the upper half of the picture.

Additionally this texture also has an offset. I wonder if no changes have been made to the mesh or UV mesh.

You could adjust the texture offset, but the color difference, because I can't really get rid of it, you can always see a difference.

Maybe there are tips on how to fix it correctly.

Is it possible to select UI elements with the selection tool? For example, like a button created by a mod. I'm looking for a simple way to be able to click on it and get the component name. I tried, but could only select things like props/buildings/etc.

You go to the properties of Cities Skyline then you click on the local files button
There you will find ModToolsConfig.xml
