- Cities XXL Community MOD
- Game Version:
- Cities XL 2012
- Cities XXL 2015
This is a set of medieval castle walls loosely based on those found in the historic southern French city of Avignon. A matching new esplanade road is also provided as well as a set of turret and gatehouse plopables which are designed to fit with both the castle walls and the esplanade road.
With this set you should be able to come up with some creative wall layouts by combining the dragable walls with the plopable furniture.
Please note that the models have a higher triangle count than average and so may cause a performance hit on less powerful machines. The author has tested this patch file with no problems using modern powerful PC but this may not be the experience of all users.
1. 1 new 15m esplanade road to match the style of the walls
2. 4 new furnitues : 40m wall section, Gatehouse , square tower , round tower
3. 4 new dragable walls: plain wall, gate house , start tower and end tower

Notes. For best results use fixed orientation roads when trying to place the plopable towers. When you first try to place a tower you will only see the top battlements and will need to use the SHIFT key to raise the tower to the correct height. Some guide tabs have added to the models to make it easy to see the optimum placement position. If the guides are showing then you need to re position the model in 3d space until the guide tabs are no longer visible. If you mess up and need to delete a tower , then the small collision box needed to select them is to be found on the top middle of the floor level for each tower.

NB THIS PATCH FILE REQUIRES A NEW CUSTOM TAG. IF YOU DO NOT ADD THIS TAG THIS MOD WILL CRASH YOUR GAME.
For XXL users: Download a minor update to the Community mod (V2.08c) or Community Mod 2.09a if you are using the latest beta version and place in your paks/mods folder of your game installation remembering to remove your existing version. Updated community mod available here - install only 1 of these depending upon your preference. ( 2.09a is a beta version which adds some sub categories for the plazas decoration menu.)
All I have done here is unpack the community mod, add the new tag to the tags.cfg file and repacked the patch file. There are no other changes in these versions compared to V2.08b or V2.09 from which these versions are respectively sourced.
If you wish to do this manually then unpack your current Community mod, locate the tags.cfg file within the data/design/config subfolder and add the following custom tag to the style section:
save tags.cfg then repack the mod and place in your mods folder.
For Platinum/XL users, download the latest version of the tags file (V1.9) from here Dependency - Tags.cfg which has kindly been updated by MrX to include this tag. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS FILE IN XXL , it will not work and will crash your game.
Once you have acquired and installed the new tag using one of the methods above then download the patch file and place it in the paks/mods directory of your game installation.
Have as much fun placing these as I did making them. Merry Xmas.
