CSL Service Reserve

Allows you to reserve vehicles for critical services if you are hitting the maximum.

CSL Service Reserve v1.7.0-f5 (build 01)

If you've come up against the maximum of 16384 active vehicles at anyone moment in time limit and you're basically staying pegged there enough that some of your city services are not functioning as well as they should because some of them can't get spawned in a timely manner then this mod is for you. It will let you setup a small reserve amount that key city service types can pull from to spawn on thier first try. A small reserve goes a long way. This mod lets you set a lower limit for "normal" requests, and lets your critical ones continue through to use the reserved amount between that lower limit and the real maximum.

It's a niche scenario probably but i've seen enough cases and questions about it where I thought this might be helpful to share.

Transfer reasons to VehicleManger.CreateVehicle() that are allowed to use the reserved amount:

Installation\Configuration Information
Configuation File Location: %SkylinesInstallFolder%\CSLServiceReserve_Config.xml

Where %SkylinesInstallFolder% is the root of your Cities Skylines installation folder.
For most that would be something like c:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Cities_Skylines

This mod makes use of Sebastian Schöner's (aka cope ) CitiesSkylinesDetour project, and would not be possible without it. You can find his great project here:
Thanks Sebastian for sharing such for reuse with the modding community.

This project's sourcecode can be found on Github -- Here --[]

Other mods that detour\replace VehicleManager's CreateVehicle() function will cause a problem (ie the mod will load but not actually do anything). I imagine there are some out there, but I've run it with some of the more popular traffic mods and fair amount of other mod without issues so far.

updated for 1.7 added ferry and monorail to be able to use 'reserved' vehicle pool. Did not add blimps and cable cars, will consider adding those if there is really demand that those should be high priority.

@3 skullzcrusherz - Nope, at present there is no public mod I'm aware of that does that for the likely object limits your interested in raising.

So, right now there wouldn't be a mod to raise object limits?

This mod saved my crime ridden, garbage filled burning city. Usually no police, firetrucks or garbage trucks would spawn at all.

@xEthanol - Hard to say if it was bug in a mod or if it'll just eventually build up again - you'll know soon enough.

i just cleared all traffic and solved all my problems and active vehicles went to 11 000 soooo.... i dont know maybe it was/is a bug? oddly enough after a while my industry started to want raw materials even tho they were all supplied right after i cleared all traffic... now active vehiles are at around 9000 for some reason

Depending on size and layout of city it can be normal. But I'd say a well designed, well functioning city of say 100k or even 250k though should in most cases not be hitting the limit. Most of the time it comes down to how products are arriving or departing. For example an mostly office based large city of 400k isn't going to use as many vehicles as a 200k city that is heavy on industry for employment. Offices don't generate traffic where was a factory does, just one example there are lots of factor. Another is distance\time of average travel, the father things need to go at slower speeds the more vehicles that will be actively in use.

is it normal to hit the 16384 limit? i think i hit that limit... its like time to start a new city? since i cant grow anymore... maybe my city is so big i there is no traffic at all... no traffic jams... al roads are green and still i hit the limit... ;(

You are right - I just unsubbed from all my mods, then resubbed to any that had updated on or after Nov 29th, and everything was fine.
Sorry to've bothered you ..... I'm still learning.
Next "patch" that comes across, I'll just take a week-long break (to let you modding folks do your updates) and then do my unsub/resub thing.
Thanks for the patience with all us "newbies"
