Buildings [NEW MOD] Free Range Buildings Mod 1.0

Turns many models, including other mods into free range buildings.

  1. evilcatdog

    This mod was made by myself, for myself and then I thought, why not share?
    So here it is.

    The mod must be the last mod to load!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If not, add more "Z"s to the file name to be sure.

    1. This mod will turn most of the game buildings into over water-able, collision-free, no-road-required, unsnappable plopables.

    2. Again - they are not snappable to roads. Experienced XL players will know how to use this to its full potential. This mod is for total building freedom, not for neatly building next to roads - in fact you don't even need roads with this mod.

    3. It even will convert certain custom mods to the same format. If you dont have that mods installed, the build icon will still show in the menu- but if you try and place that building - it will be the grey and ugly "default" model.

    4. Most buildings, but not all buildings, will become shift-raisable/sinkable.

    Those who ever used my small collision box mod, will know of the peculiarities with this one. If you want to try it out, I suggest doing so on a new city first, or have your existing one backed up. Just in case.

    Once you understand what this mod is capable of and allows, it will be amazing what you can achieve. I usually install this mod, to make my cities, and then remove it when I want to go back to normal placement rules.

    Please let me know any issues you have with this, and I will do my best to follow up on them.

    Also please show me your creative placements. I would love to see them.

    This was a great idea. Thank you for uploading it for us. Can we get a list of the buildings it supports (so we do not have to deal with gray boxes)?

    For somebody it may be very useful, but I'm used to have buildings attached.

      Then it clearly was not uploaded for you.
      It is an excellent tool for making special customisations.
      I did this for my own reasons, not yours. I just decided to upload it, you know, for those who appreciate such things.
      Its a shame you dont have enough creative skill to see what can be achieved with this. Maybe when you grow up. So please do not be negative without point, unless you have something constructive to add? Like why you think what you think, what didn't you like? Simply making matter-of-fact statements like that make you sound like an uneducated ass. I didn't put this up for popularity, it was put up to allow people to have more freedom in their city designs. Go use your 3x4 rectangle tool then and feel proud at 'your' accomplishments.
