General Dig Area Tool 2.2

Dig Area Tool

  1. nicko2u
    Game Version:
    • Cities XL 2012
    • Cities XXL 2015
    • Cities XL Platinum
    Version 2.0 is for XXL only.
    Version 2.1 is for All Versions 2011,2012,Plat,XXL
    Version 2.2 added custom content filter menu option all versions.

    So What does this mod do?
    Basically it just terraforms (digs) areas that you select and delete.
    Three dig depth levels at present - small 20, medium 50 & max 400. with a 4th option to reset back to ground level.
    and 1 more to raise the terrain level.

    This mod could be useful for creating sunken roads with overpass bridges or flood drains or just to level the area.

    Once you install this patch it can be found under the Custom Content > decorations > Areas.

    XXL users I had to move the tools to be under Decoration Areas.
    Installation Pre-requiste(s):
    UIM or Cities XXL Community Mod.

    Didn't test the update on platinum yet but thanks for this. I agree with SMHA, it would be great if we could adjust the depth level... thanks anyway for the mod as it is...

    Hey Nicko
    This tool is not compatible with Platinum but is ok with XXL
    the latest version that works with Platinum is ver 1.2.1
    and that one does have a little problem with large areas
    Can we expect a compatible 2.0 ver for Platinum?

    Very useful mod, but it crashes my game at startup.

    I use this toolkit for easier sunken highways and it's an excellent tool. I was waiting for the XXL version and it's here.
    Thanks to the author for timely delivery.

    P.S. I'd like to propose a bit of modification perhaps: Would it be possible to let the user define the depth of the dig using a slider perhaps?
