Environment Changer (+ Improved Theme Selection )


Allows to change a saved game's, map's or theme's environment. It also decouples environment selection from custom theme selection.

This mod allows to change environment of an existing save game.
It adds a drop down to main menu load game panel that allows to change your save game's environment. First item in the list is save game's original environment.
After the save game is loaded you can save it and new environment will persist.

This mod will be especially helpful when Snowfall DLC comes out and some players will want to convert their existing save games to winter environment. I'll make an update with winter environment option when the DLC comes out.

Save Game Environment Changer should be compatible with all other mods.

If you find some mod that changes loading panel in an incompatible way, please let me know.

All screenshots here were taken using my Daylight Classic mod that recreates light conditions from pre After Dark age.

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

Whenever i try to load an old save and change the theme on multiple cities it will delete all my high density areas. How do i fix this?

@ ApollonDriver - Yes. Don't confuse themes with the environments. There are 5 environments. (see screenshots).

the main purpose of this mod is it gives you the option to change your *environment* at a later time. So I am currently on a temperate map right now. The map was originally created as a tropical map but I changed it, I could right now log out and change it to winter (if you have Snowfall DLC) and voila have snow even though my map was originally created as a tropical.

This impacts your lighting and temperature and rain and sometimes even assets among other things, including what themes you can use since themes are created for certain environments.

Is this mod still needed? I mean I don't have it but on the Load section, there is already a tab saying: custom theme but when I click only option is none, while I have custom theme loaded already.

My bad. Thanks to Extended Error Reporting mod the exception is not caused by this mod.

Starting a new game on Snowy Coast and select temperate will cause the game to bug out with a null reference exception.

@ruthicc, Do you have European buildings enabled in the options under the themes thing? If you have European buildings built and then swap map themes by default the game will not load said buildings (to save time since they are intended for euro maps only).

Me personally, I just keep it enabled in the themes and enjoy the extra buildings. You can also use the district theme for high res euro in a temperate/tropical map for a good old to new style city.
