    Instead of only some resources being on the map, it will have of them covering the entire map.

    Following this discussion:
    64 x Furnitures - XXL - by Ieyasu and by Karaaib

    As suggested by Monty, could you help us update the CM to add additional buttons
    Can we start by improving the decoration menu, by making the buttons of the "IUM"?
    Thank you for your answer!

    Yeah no worries, I'll have a look into it.

    I'll need the categories\tags to use and some button images ;)

    yeah, having the same menus with the same tags in xxl as in xl would be great... that would solve a lot of compatibility issues between both versions :)
    PS: if that would be too much work, no problem, one button more is better than none :)

    Is this a mod or just thumbnail images?

    Drazicdesign,
    Totally cool that you and others are working on including more of the XL UIM in the XXL CM. I'm also glad Altiris is willing to help in this venture. Definitely great that it looks like you're going to expand decoration sections so the many decoration items have more places to be separated into. I do hope we can get the Entertainment button too, it was under Commerce - Leisure - Cultural I think. A lot of XL mod buildings that could be brought into XXL.

    Radiant Dawn,
    These are just thumbnail images. Hopefully they will be incorporated into a new CM that will allow decoration items to be separated into more sections thus thinning out the selection under any one button.

    bluejeans,
    The sandbox makes all maps have unlimited resources, in other words resources won't be limited to certain areas of a map.

    Wow thanks, great job. :D
    It works very well,:)

    I have two questions,
    1 / Is it possible to have the upgrades "lamp", "wall", "bench", "trash" as in the XL version?

    2 / Is this normal, that this version 2.09 is lighter than version 2.08?

    Thanks for the update Altiris. If you don't mind i'm also trying the patch.
    What would be the tag for this one? Furniture instead of Areas, for example?

    And how about the Areas, can you specify the tags. I recall in xl you could put areas/tile (or something like this), and it would only appear once tiled areas were activated...

    Altiris,
    Thanks for adding the additional filter buttons! Now finding decorative items is a little easier. I really love how there's a section now where 2 of my 3 parking lot mods sit nearly alone, that cuts down on many, many clicks searching for parking lots at the end of the list. My wrist thanks you! The one parking lot mod that doesn't seem to show up in the new area is the Small parking Lot for XXL V1.0 by Supersnake, it has many versions of very small parking lots. Looks like now it'll be a matter of time before some furniture mods are updated to use the new buttons.

    Thanks also to Drazicdesign for creating those graphic buttons! I like his suggestions about having those 4 other buttons done so we have a few more sections to split up all of the many furniture items into.

    I'm excited that some are working to bring the XL UIM to the XXL CM. That would help make many of my XL mods work the way they're supposed to. (y)

    No Worries, the tags are identical to XL, so yes Furniture instead of Areas, and areas are split into Nature, Tile, Plaza, Texture.

    I noticed some of the original areas are not showing up under any button so these class files may need to be updated.


    1 / You mean button categories or upgrade code? would need an extra button called "other" as a lot of furniture would not fit into those categories.

    2 / Yeah, I removed some temporary working files from the last version.

    1/
    Here a example in Cities XL:
    With this wall selected, a menu is available to perform an upgrade,
    upload_2016-11-28_9-39-2.png
    In "Cities XL" it is the same functioning, with the benches, the trashs, the lamps.


    Here tags:
    - For the walls
    Code:
    <Tag>Decoration;MS18;Furniture;GemCity;BuildingUpgrade;Wall;UP_1</Tag>
    
    - For the trashs
    Code:
    <Tag>Decoration;MS18;Furniture;GemCity;BuildingUpgrade;Trash;UP_1</Tag>
    
    - For the lamps
    Code:
    <Tag>Decoration;MS18;Furniture;GemCity;BuildingUpgrade;Lamp;UP_1</Tag>
    
    - For the benchs
    Code:
    <Tag>Decoration;MS18;Furniture;GemCity;BuildingUpgrade;Bench;UP_1</Tag>
    

    Believe it is possible to get the same functionality in Cities XXL?

    Ahh yes the upgrade code, I thought I already added that back, that's why I thought you meant buttons. phew. ;)

    Yeah that's a lot easier than adding buttons, give me a couple of weeks and I should be able to add that back too.

    I really like upgrades! So nice to have multiple items stored under one item in a selection from a button, then one can access item and choose which upgrade is desired. I love the way Drazicdesign did his Animations Ploppable mod where there's one menu item that has about 28 different upgrades.
