Plop the Growables

This mod was a request from a friend of mine who wants complete control of growables, so here it is. Definitely not for the average player.

Growables don't level up, don't despawn, and "grow" instantly.

You could say this mod makes all growables behave like RICO. It lets you plop down buildings with Find It, and they won't level up. Additionally, growables won't despawn when you move them or dezone them. Finally, growables no longer take time to grow, instead appearing instantly when you plop them or when they "grow" somewhere.

This mod is like an add-on for Find It, Move It, and Force Level Up.

It does 4 things:

  • It disables the "scaffolding" effect.

    By setting construction time to 0 on all growables, it disables the scaffolding effect completely and makes them appear instantly when you plop them using Find It.

  • It prevents all growables from leveling up automatically.

    This means that unless you force them to level up with Force Level Up mod, they will stay as you plop them forever, or in the case of ones that grow, they will always remain level 1.

  • It prevents growables from disappearing when you remove zoning or move them using Move It.

    This is the same thing as the mod Disable Zone Check(DZC) does. However, you can use both. If you have DZC enabled, then this mod will not deploy that part of the code.

  • It removes the need for district specialization policies.

    Specialized industry and commerce will no longer despawn if plopped outside a suitably specialized district.

Incompatible mods

Control Building Level Up

This mod prevents all growables from leveling at all unless you force them manually so there's no point in having Control Building Level Up and this together. Pick the one that suits your needs best.

Required Mods

You need to have these mods because otherwise your buildings will never level up, and you wont be able to plop anything.

Find It

Force Level Up


Move It

No Abandonment

No Fires

No Problem


Thanks to Pres for the idea :)

This mod uses awesome Skylines-Detour[] library, by Cope and the Framework for it developed by Bloodypenguin, without them, this mod would not have been possible to build.

The building in the image is by Feindbild :)

Would be amazing if you can add a setting menu - like enable scaffolding, enable level up for buildings in zones. I have 370000 city and leveling up each building is a nightmare. But I love how much control you get with this mod. Thanks nonetheless :hardhat:

Its possible but requires a lot of work and its not something id have fun doing right now. As the mod is, if i allow levelling up then the buildings you tediously spent hours carefully plopping will level up and change, ruinIng your previous work.

its not the best really. I appreciate all the work the modder did but not being able to plop growables makes things a little too tedious. There's some areas i want to plop growables and some areas i want them to level up normally. Is that not possible in the programming?

Hi, when searching 'residential' with the find it mod, I can no longer find the vanilla buildings, only the european themed buildings show up. The european style is turned off. Do you have any fix for this? thanks.

"It prevents all growables from leveling up automatically." - from mod description.

So if i want one area that i plop and another that i zone, does this stop the zoned areas from leveling up on their own ?
