Version 3.5.2

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

I am receiving all sorts of error messages on my debug console (it pops up every 2-3 mins, also on startup) when this mod is enabled. I'm not recieving any of it when Mod Tools is disabled.

They're nothing gamebraking or gamecrashing but they are concerning and quite annoying.

I found the problem with the Scene Explorer. I think it has to do with running a wide resolution like my 5760x1080. On day I just resized the window wider (although I didn't need it wider). And the List on the Left appeared out of nowhere!! Schazzam! Probably the window calculations don't take into account wide resolutions.

Steam won't let me edit my post...

I am desperate for help.
I cannot get the Scene Explorer to show the list on the left! It is just blank. I have tried both the Beta and Stable, --noworkshop and with the workshop. When in the Asset Editor I press Ctrl+E and the Scene Explorer opens, but there is never any list on the left..

See pic here.. []

Just install the mod
Nice, very nice :-)
My problem in C:S is that my public transport lines keep breaking down and I am looking for the cause. I only know that there are a lot of NullReferenceException in the LOG file.
Because I am not familiar with the model behind C:S, how do I find the information about a bus line resp. bus stop?

Fantastic tool, thank you all so much!

Do you know if there is a way to force a vehicle that does not normally have a trailer to have one?
