Advanced Vehicle Options (AVO)

Compatible with Cities Skylines 1.9.2-f1 (Anniversary Patch)

This mod let you customize various options about vehicles.
To access those options simply click on the vehicle icon at the bottom right of your screen (next to the policy icon).

Mod options
- Hide the user interface: Lets you hide the UI completely if you feel like you are done with it and want to save the little bit of memory it takes. Everything will still be functional.

Vehicle options
- Max Speed: Lets you change the maximum speed of the vehicle. Please note that due how the game simulate the traffic, vehicles may not reach their maximum speed (ie. road speed limits).
- Acceleration/Brake: Lets you change how fast the vehicle accelerate/brake.
- Colors: Lets you change the color scheme for that particular vehicle type. When a vehicle spawn a random color is chosen between those 4 colors.
- Allow this vehicle to spawn: Pretty self explanatory. Be careful, disabling all vehicles of a particular service will prevent it to work as no vehicle will be able to spawn. Make sure you have at least one vehicle available for each category.
- Replace last car with engine: Allows you to make the last car of a train be an engine. The engine is automatically reversed. Now automatically applied to existing trains.
- Capacity: Lets you change the capacity of the vehicle. Note: bigger cargo/garbage capacity is not necessarily better. Cargo/Garbage collection needs to be dispatched across the map so the more vehicles you have the better, as long as the road network can handle the load. You don't want the capacity too low either as it will generate a lot more vehicles. Try to stay close to default vehicle values.

- Reload: Restore the backup configuration file created when loading the game or using the Save button.
- Save: Save a backup of the current configuration.
- Remove vehicles: All existing vehicle instances of that type, driving or parked, will be removed. Hold Shift key to remove ALL vehicle types.

How to Replace default vehicles with custom ones

Configuration file
The configuration file can be found at
If you wish, it is possible to open and edit the file with a text editor (ie. notepad).

Other mods like Improved Public Transport, Transport Line Manager or Service Vehicle Selector can still spawn disabled vehicles. This is intended behavior because they offer greater spawning control. Use them to configure which vehicles you want to spawn instead.
Does not alter game save files in any way.
Can be disabled/removed at any time.

THIS MOD IS NO LONGER WORKED ON. Asking for improvements/fixes/compatibility issues is pointless. I'll however make an effort to keep the mod working, if possible, with major updates of the game (I don't own any of the DLCs).

I don't seem to be able to use this to replace the last car of the monorails anymore? Am I missing something?

@Angelhearth It's embedded in the save now. If you saved your game with the version 1.8+ of the mod, just load your save. Then you can export the settings, load another save and import the settings if that's what you are looking for.

It doesn't seem like the mod makes "default" xml-file, is that correct? Kind of annoying I have to redo all the speeds, because I was stupid enough not to make a backup of steamapps before I reinstalled.

I'm trying to stop the default (DLC) passenger train from spawning, but it comes back (from outside connections) all the time. This used to work, not sure what has happened. Why I want it gone? Because I only want high speed trains. with a speed limit of 560km/h. :steamhappy:

Must be something on your end, because I'm using both of them almost since they came out.:chirp:

Might be a bit daft saying, but loading this along side Service Vehicle Selector 2 makes the game crash out.

The issue raised by Shingo has not been resolved. The icon completely disappeared on my end randomly during gameplay.
I will provide a log file if I can figure out how to.
