Image Overlay

Compatible with Cities Skylines 1.10.1-f2 (Parklife)

Image Overlay is a mod for Cities: Skylines that allows you to show and control an image over your terrain, so you can easily use it as a template for building your city.

Image Overlay is an updated version of BetterImageOverlay by Omegote.

This mod will automatically load any .png images located at "[Steam directory]\steamapps\common\Cities_Skylines\Files\[filename].png".
Images max size is pretty much unlimited, but expect huge load times with images higher than 8192x8192 px.
I also suggest you to upload images here [] to decrease it's size.

To adjust overlay opacity, change slider value in mod settings and hit Apply button.

  • Rotation support (thanks to DwithS)

  • Overlay corrensponds to terrain height
  • Images cache system: after each image is loaded once, loading gets much faster
  • Adjustable overlay opacity
  • Dynamic load of .png files
  • Multiple images to toggle through
  • Auto fit to 1x1, 3x3, 5x5 or 9x9 tiles

  • Move: keypad arrows or Shift + arrows

  • Toggle: keypad Enter or Shift + Enter
  • Cycle through images: Shift + R
  • Lock: keypad 5 or Shift + V
  • Auto fit image to 1x1...9x9 tiles: Shift +T
  • Reset to default position: Shift + B

  • Scale: keypad 1/3 or Shift + +/-

  • Rotation: keypad 7/9 or Shift + Q/E
  • Rotation by 90°: Shift + [ or ]

  • Precise movement: Hold Ctrl
  • Fast movement: Hold Ctrl + Alt

5% good. You can see the map and the Image at the same time

We definitely need a raise/lower option, like 🅵🆁🅴🅳🅴🆁🅸🅺, mikedmorris92, phenicus, and probably others have said. It's impossible to see where you are building roads, which makes this mod useless to those of us who want to create maps based on real cities.
No raise or lower option? Well done, making roads is now useless!

The image file path no longer exists, where do I put the image now? I tried putting it in various folders, and then re-installing the mod, but now I don't even get the exclamation point widget to turn the mod on.

I use a map from SAS Planet that size is 11745x16801, and I load into game with a big red question mark image. I though there's no size limit, is anything wrong?
