Aedificium - Hotloading workshop items while you play

This mod looks for new workshop subscriptions to buildings, intersections, props and trees and loads them on the fly for instant use.

YES, that means you can SUBSCRIBE to something from the workshop and USE it instantaniously!

The mod is capable of handling dependencies, so if you subscribe to a building that's beautified by external props or trees, the mod will subscribe to and install them automatically.

The mod is compatible with RICO - buildings. It also integrates with the new phantastic FindIt mod.

Note that this mod is beta. Bugs are likely.

The mod may cause your game to freeze or stutter for a few seconds while installing assets with long depency chains. That's normal, just let the steam client do its thing.

How it works

There's nothing much to do for you really. Once you subscribe to an asset - either via your real browser or the built in Steam one, it will take a few seconds until your Steam client finishes the download.

Once that happens, a Chirper message will notify you of the new subscription and the games panels will be updated.

Plop the new asset as ususal. You can also click on the icon in the chirper message.

Youtubers and Streamers

If you happen to feature the mod in your videos / streams, please let me know.

Beggars corner

If you like what I am doing and want to support my work and my little family, please have a look at my Amazon Wishlist ( ) or paypal me ( ).

Also, I am sitting here still on the standard game with no DLC. I have another fine mod in the pipeline, but I can only partially test it, since I'd need the DLCs for that. ( Did disasters introduce new services btw?) So if somebody has a leftover gift code, I'd be grateful.

Known Issues

Textures may disappear over a certain height, earlier than normally.

Other mods not using the PrefabCollection directly but by keeping a local copy will probably not reflect hotloaded buildings (Like for instance the Building Search mod, use FindIt instead )

What's the name

It's latin for "building". Consider it a working title. I'll probably go for something better like "Impromptu" or "Hotload" when this gets out of beta.

Thank You's.

Many thanks to thale5 for giving me a starting point with his Loading Screen Mod.

Hey Tailgunner, it seems that your last update works :) I´ve tested it with a "normal" asset and it was loaded. But on the other hand it seems, that your mod produces farther erros sometimes after hotloading.. I will test it on the weekend and give you more information...

Oddly enough, it seems to have auto picked up mods I downloaded and activated them in an active game... interesting.

@Tailgunner most all of the ones I downloaded did not show up in game whether they were parks, police stations etc. Only a select few popped up instantly.

Could you tell me which assets didn't work for you?

Awesome mod, works well for me!

Great mod, but for some reason only appears to work with certain assets? Tried it for the first time and only some of them loaded in game right away.

@Tailgunner This is now working perfectly!

Problem was, I had two classes with the same name in both Aedificium and Sandiego. The calls got intermixed and I didnt realize that because I have both installed.

Updated. Pls try again.

Tailgunner, i have the same problem after your update:

No chance to hotload something :/
