Found your mod while unsuccessfully looking for one that would expand the range of the budgets. Glad I did, your mod has been very helpful! So seamless that I forget it's not part of the vanilla interface. 👍

Great mod! I would love if you added an option to lock day and night sliders together.

Just wanted to reach out and tell you how awesome this is! With City Vitals along side this, it just makes the game so much more robust! Thanks again!!!!!!

Made better pictures to make the purpose of the mod more clear.

I allows quick access to the budget sliders without having to open the large budget window.

I've been away from the game for a long time, so excuse the stupid question - but what exactly this mod does differently than the vanilla game budget settings?

@jrud05 I've desired that same feature myself. I used the solution @Harold Finch suggested by placing relatively less elementary schools yet in addition to that I improved the radius of their effect with the Service Radius Adjuster mod: and then increased the price and maintenance of service bldgs through another mod I use "Difficulty Tuning": to to balance the difficulty somewhat. I don't like spamming service bldgs everywhere.

The budgets are just there to fine adjust anyways because of the formula making it less worthy the further away you go from 100%.
Therefore, it is generally better to just build more/less buildings where it is needed.
