    It just says "Cities XL has stopped working." Do i like need something special to mod? All i did was download the mod and put it into my paks folder. Do I need to download something else for it to work?

    Check the log file C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL\log

    Do have the pre-requisite mods installed? User Interface Mod, Shader pack for players, XL Nation Furniture pack?

    To see the "app/data" folder you may have to put a check in the "hidden items" box in your view menu.

    I have windows 7. I think that's Windows 10 or 8 or whatever. I don't even know how to get to that page. Honestly, this is frustrating me. This is all I get when I try to reach it, and theres no "AppData."

    Here's how to display hidden files and folders in windows 7.
    1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
    2.Click the View tab.
    3.Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.
    Then the app/data folder should then be visible.
