Prop & Tree Anarchy

Place props & trees wherever you like

With this mod enabled you can place props & trees:
- under water
- on roads
- within building's footprint

This is useful when placing props with More Beautification mod. I also recommend to use Prop Snapping to snap props to buildings and elevated roads, like in asset editor (as well as its sibling, Tree Snapping).

Useful tip
This mod is also helps to load maps with missing tree or prop assets because it fixes buggy code of Cities: Skylines that causes errors on loading when some required trees or props are missing.

Use Shift+P (or Alt +P, or Ctrl+P - you can change that in options) key combination to toggle anarchy. This mod provides an options entry (see screenshot).

Please note that if anarchy is set to always on bulldoze trees before zoning areas that have trees if you don't wont them to grow through growables. Follow this guide by @sweetmanp[] to massively erase trees with Extra Landscaping Tools mod

If you need to use tree brush on steep slopes use my No Tree Brush Slope Limit mod.

Props Anarchy can be safely disabled at any time. But most props and tree you placed with this mod will become hidden eventually without this mod enabled.

If you need road or building anarchy (that includes so-called 'concrete brushes' a.k.a. fillers), use Sharp Junction Angles mod.

Latest updates:
UPDATE 1.9.1 (4/15/2021)
Fixed: Undid the UI label fix from the previous update as it caused issues

UPDATE 9 (4/15/2021)
Added: German translation
Fixed: Korean translation not working properly
Fixed: an underlying code issue that could cause issues for:
a) Displaying the status label correctly.
b) Those who do not wish to use "no-UI" and "enable prop anarchy at startup" in case they accidentally have it on the wrong setting
c) When switching between different tools, occassionally the game would not allow the toolmode button hotkeys configured by the user to continue being used; thus necessitating a workaround in the above part b that could have potentially chained into other issues.

This mod uses awesome detours C# library[] by cope. Without it, this mod would've been impossible to make.

i think it has to do with rendering objects or something like that

In the Options what do these do?
What is 'level loading'?
And what is Hide/Unhide mean? I don't think I am hiding any props or trees?

- Unhide all props on level loading
- Unhide all trees on level loading

@indianmeal moth infestation personally I switched to Tree Anarchy 1.3.5 and Prop Anarchy 0.7.5 , both made by Quistar and Chameleon.

@Alura what replacement for this would you recommend?
Alura Jul 15 @ 3:58am 
OBSOLETE - try the other newer mods, this one works fine, but upon reload tends to forget large chunk of props you've placed with the mod. For example, putting trees near service building might not be there the next time you load.

is it possible to turn off the tree anarchy but leave prop anarchy on? It's annoying having to turn it off or manually remove trees to build a road

@SHIELD, and others. The mod isn't broken per se., an update to the game hinders the tree placement on networks . HOWEVER, with the mod, BOB the tree and prop replacer, in game, click on the options menu and make sure under its General Options tab, the radial button for "Disable vanilla tree tool . . . " is selected. Once that is done, you can place trees on networks.

Works for me, perhaps for you as well.

And the other Tree Anarchy mod does the same

Yep, mod is broken, can't place trees near any networks...
