Network Skins (Mass Transit compatible)

The first 2 modules of a network skinning mod:
  • Select the pillars of your bridges
  • Select the street lights of your roads
  • Select roadside trees
The mod supports roads, train tracks and pedestrian paths. All features can be selected per segment.

Planned Features (Module 3 and 4):
  • Set the distance between street lights/trees
  • Custom road textures (e.g. cobblestone roads, brick roads)
  • Remove power wires of train tracks
  • Custom power lines (e.g. wooden poles)
  • Custom bridge meshes (SC4-like bridge selection)

How it works:
  • Movable customizer window that only pops up when you use the network tool
  • This mod will only apply visual changes and can be disabled at any time without breaking saves

The mod supports custom street lights created by modellers:

To create your own, look at this tutorial[].

The mod also supports custom pillars created by modellers:

  • Fine Road Heights (It is important that you subscribed to the official workshop item. Outdated versions for offline use are not supported!)
  • Precision Engineering
  • Sharp Junction Angles
  • No Pillars (though it sometimes messes up the pillar selection)

Known Incompatibilities
  • "Vanilla Trees Remover" interferes with the pillar replacement feature

Source Code[]

When I tried out this new mod the pop up menu for Network skins did not show.

Thanks AquilaSol.
I don't know if that's what I did when my roads reverted, but it probably is .... because I am not having the tree default reversions now.

Again, thanks for the heads-up on closing game before changing subscriptions. Something I didn't know and I'm probably not the only one.

@HGscMENTOR and everyone else with reset issues. The cause of the resets is usually subscribing/unsubscribing content whole the game is already running. That is an incredibly old problem that has existed for ages, and also affects Surface Painter. It's a game problem, so there is nothing the modders can do about it.

Close the game before changing your workshop subscriptions.

Hi folks - just another user here - I had the same problem last week after the Green free updates (should be called free headaches....). All my "skinned" roads reverted back to default trees and lampposts every time I closed out the game and reloaded. Drove me NUTS and cost a lot of my cities funds to constantly change back.....

But as of yesterday (and I've turned the game off and reloaded 4 times now as a test), I no longer have that problem. I didn't do anything to cause the change so I'm guessing either BoFormer or the developers/distributors of the game made a change that fixed it.

Thanks G__ __ !!!

Also, the one feature that would be great is to be able to update an existing street of the same category to only change the lights and/or trees. Right now it is not possible to upgrade a street with the same category.

Nice mod, but since Green cities the changes revert back to default after reloading a save.

I have green cities, when It was istalled this mod not work. I tried to change a pillar but after that I save, and go out, when I return the pillar is changed with the pillar of default. So update to green cities please .

First off I want to thank you for one of my favorite mods! Is there a way for me to change the defailt tree selection? Scrolling through that list of trees is so frustrating haha

There is a very annoying bug all the time:
The selected street lights will come backe to default ones after reload !
