The second version of my Realistic Highway mod is finally there. It is based on the original RHM but building behaviour has been improved, graphics have been changed and some content was added.
This Mod is compatible with CitiesXL 2012 and the NEXL mod. Despite that there might be conflicts with other mods. Please report such.
This time it comes as a self extracting exe file. Make sure you select the "cities xl 2012/paks" folder when unpacking. There will be 2 files added to your paks folder. One is the RHM2 mod the other one is a file I created which reduces snapping. I recommend using it since it makes building a lot easier. It is not essential though and can be removed if it's not wanted.
The User Interface Mod 1.77.5 or higher is absolutely essential! Any older version of it will make the game crash once trying to build anything!
The game will crash on start up without it. RHM networks do not allow city links. You will have to build city links as usual with the normal highway and then connect RHM to it. When connecting a connector to an already existing road it has to snap. Rotate the piece before snapping if it keeps snapping the wrong way round. Pieces that did not snap exactly will not work. The menu text does not meet the actual capacities. Despite the description in the menu bridges feature always the exact properties as the ground networks.
Elevated puzzle pieces have a fixed height and can not be raised or lowered. If an interchange doesn't work you can put a bus line through it to see where exactly the problem is.
For nodders: If you create something that replaces something you have to name the file RHM2_z_* to make sure it gets loaded last.
Works with any country specific road set except UK
Installation instructions for those who fail to handle the german installer:
Well, installation is pretty easy:
Download the file
Unpack XL_Nation_Pitty_RHM2.rar with 7zip or winrar
Click on "Durchsuchen" and point to "... CitiesXL2012\Paks" (where your \paks folder is)
Click on "Entpacken"
And that's all, you'll find RHM icons in the highway menu."
RHM1 files should be removed but be warned: cities that used to have RHM1 highways will be lost.
Anyone who wants to add something to this mod is welcome. I will link to it here if wished.
Now the rest is up to your phantasy and skill.
Please report any malfunctions to the Realisitc Highway Mod Thread in the forums.
Edit: New fixed version here (removed ped_path conflict and fixed 2 lane Exit)
