Dependency XL User Interface Mod 1.79.9

XL Nation User Interface Mod, adding a lot of extra menu items

  1. Altiris
    • CitiesXL 2011
    • CitiesXL 2012
    • CitiesXL Platinum
    This is the XL Nation UI Mod. It can be used standalone, and adds quite a lot of extra menu items. It will be a prerequisite to installing NEXL components.

    It will be updated often, as nexl, clm or any other mod using this menu develops. Please check often for updates, and ensure you have the latest version.

    Big Thanks to Pharmist, User and Mr-Tom, for all their help in creating this mod and HyperWolf for providing this awesome site for us all. Also I'd like to thank the NEXL beta team for testing and helping out with issues, and of course the entire XLNation community, Modders and Gamers alike, for your support and for downloading this Mod.


    Here's a great little promo video created by diScOpOlis.

    Please try it out, and let me know of any issues, I will fix them and post updates often.

    Known Conflicts, Please remove:

    "YY_mod_carte_vierge.patch" -- incompatible with both UIM and Cities XL2012, please remove.

    The Installer will override these now, but it's recommended to remove them anyway.

    Zone Upgrades

    Any building with "T1" tag (excluding packs) out of the following tags will always show "T2" buildings of the same tag.


    Building Upgrades

    Any building with "BuildingUpgrade" tag (including packs) out of the following tags will always show buildings of the same tag. Use tags "UP_1" - "UP_30" to group them.


    Furniture Upgrades

    Any building with "BuildingUpgrade" tag and "Furniture" tag out of the following tags will always show buildings of the same tag. Use tags "UP_1" - "UP_30" to group them.
    Also adding "Furniture" tag will remove most of the information from the selection panel, it will just show name and upgrades.


    List of Included Files.

    Package report found below

    New Menu Button Tags.

    adding NOZAC to your class file tags will stop it appearing in zones, or being placed with a zone placeholder, this way you can still leave eg, "Residence", "T#", etc.
    and it will be in the correct menu, but only accessible when "Individual Placement" is on.

    These are up for discussion (as is the rest of the UIM) and can be changed to any category that will be most used..


    Custom Content Building Set - All usual tags, replace "MS18" with "MSCUSTOM"

    Limitless construction Building Set - All usual tags, replace "MS18" with "MSNOCOLLISION"

    Over Water Placement Building Set - All usual tags, replace "MS18" with "MSOVERWATER"

    I'll do a complete tags list for the new Transport & Decoration panels soon......

    Download Only the Latest Installer File listed below.. version 1.79.9

    Advanced Users can now download the XLN_Altiris_UIM_v1.79.9.zip, this contains the UIM in .Patch format, if you use these, you'll have to sort out conflicts with tags etc yourself.

    Double-click the file to execute the wizard.

    Please be patient as the Installer searches for your default Cities XL Installation Path, it may take a minute or two. You will get a message when it finds it.
    If it's not found, you will need to locate it manually.


    Do Not install to the Paks folder. but to the "Cities XL (2011\2012)" folder.

    For STEAM version on windows 7, the UIM install path will be something like:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\cities xl 2012"

    If Cities XL is located the path will be shown, if it wasn't found, locate it here..


    Wait for the installer to finish, and close the wizard.. it can be "uninstalled" by running the EXE again and choosing "remove", or from 'Programs and Features' in the control panel.

    External Download Links:
    Use either the Installer OR the Patch, NOT BOTH.

      No, it will crash, the UIM is only for Cities XL 2012-Platinum. For XXL you need the Community Mod.
