CSL Map View

CSL Map View (Current version 3.4.1)

This mod draws a image of map. Exactly, it is another external executable (CSLMapView.exe; bundled with the mod) to draw the map. The mod only outputs data file for that.
You can now display a public transport route map. There are several setting items about it. But it is troublesome for me to explain, so please configure by trial and error. I'll answer if asked, but I can't assure that my answers make sense...
If mod or viewer don't run, send comment with contents of log.
The route map can only be drawn on *.cslmap or *.cslmap.gz files outputted with version 2.0 or later mod.

@Supeerme I tried it before, but I could not get satisfactory results.

I am enjoying this program but I would like to see the borders of my districts instead of just the name.

1. Try to delete CSLMapView folder and export again.
2. Your anti-virus may have hindered the operation, please put the CSLMapView folder in the exclusion list.
# On the last version there is a part directly calling Windows API just in order to disable minimize box at new dialog, though I don't know if that is related.

Thank you for answering ;)
Yes, the folder exists.
Before the last version, it worked very well.
The last time I used it was a week ago.

@lupus.barcino Does steamapps\common\Cities_Skylines\CSLMapView folder already exist?
If you already have the folder, give your windows user full control over that folder.

I have problems to open CSLMapView.

I copy the last log of CSLMapViewMod.log file:

Could you please make a Mac version of this amazing mod? I'm playing CSL on my Macbook Pro and many people who are also playing this game on Apple Computers, If we can use this mod on Mac computers it'd be WONDERFUL! Thank you~<3

@Turgon Heightmap is always 1081x1081 16bit grayscale. Since this is for use in the map editor, there are no plans to output with other sizes.
Turgon Jul 15 @ 6:08am 
Is it possible to export heightmaps larger than 1081? I can export the image in svg as 8192x8192 but the heightmap always reverts to 1081x1081. Using SVG in both cases. Thanks!
