ModTools (Fixed for 1.1+)

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

Feel free to comment. Pull reqests are welcome.

Note: if you have any errors/exceptions, please, don't paste them or output_log.txt into comments. Use pastebin or similar tool.

Hey man thanks for all your great work! Im using modtools to change the resources for the unique factories. I noticed that when I try to do it in ubuntu 18.04 the dropdown box (to change reource value) doesnt work. No biggy because I can use windows aswell but thought that you might wanna know.

Great. And how should I use it?

does this mod export textures and uv maps?

Works great, but the scene explorer is very, very slow, and the mouse buttons are reversed (scrolling up goes down).

hmm .... BloodtPenguin .. maybe I should report that to you (given I have a fix) ... game doesn't start if ModTools.xml <consoleVisible>{var}</consoleVisible> is false but mod is active.
not a biggie now I've found a work-around ... just a heads-up. :-)
Cheers for all your great work, I very much appreciate it ... you make the game so much more fun (to a software developer) ... hopefully to others as well.
Thank you most kindly for all your efforts good sir
/nod of appreciation.
xx /kisses just in case a nod is not good enough ;-)

Is there anyone who knows how to add a property to the m_netAI portion of an object? I am trying to build a specialized flood wall that has adjustable height. I can get the height adjusted just fine by copying over the netAI from a road, but, in doing so, I lose the ability to adjust m_blockWaterOffset.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Update: For anyone having problems with Ctrl+E and Ctrl+Q not working, exit to desktop and relaunch the game and they start working.

I'm having same issue a few other people have mentioned - Ctrl+Q and Ctrl+E isn't doing anything in-game. Mod is enabled. As far as I can tell, I don't have any conflicting keyboard shortcuts.

@TrashNeon I found the dumped files location: user\AppData\Local\Colossal Order\Cities_Skylines\Addons\Import

On Mac, the mod seems to work, console and Scene Explorer work fine. Can preview textures no problem, but the Dump.png buttons don't work. No errors, but the texture .png files simply aren't written to the Cities_Skylines folder (or anywhere else).
