    hi,

    there is a reason why I'm here in this forum: I got a new PC and forgot to backup my "old" cities of Cities XXL!
    I want to test settings and stuff with a laaaarge city but savegames are nowhere to be found...other games
    on Steam send the savegames to the cloud for gods sake...I was in the deepest corners of the web and found
    NO SAVEGAMES for this particular game...

    If somebody owns XXL: could you send me / tell me where I can get 1 savegame of a huge city for testing purposes, thx in advance ^^

    I tested XXL with my new AMD-midrange-PC on WQHD with all on max and in a new city I have 160 fps when I zoom out and when I'm down on the streets around 70...this may drop when the town turns to a moloch, not a large drop with a Ryzen 5 2600X I guess but dropping it will, I wanna be prepared for this drop...

    cheerio,

    sleeping82 (aka Erwin from the mighty country of Austria)

    Hey,

    welcome on board! You can politely ask some members whether they have some big XXL cities they would be willing to share. But don't be disappointed when they refuse to^^ Players rarely want to share their dirty little secrets about their cities :D

    Also, sorry for the loss of your cities :/ but why bother testing big cities on your computer, why not just building a new city? ;)

    If a member does share you will need all the mods they used as well.

    I don't use mods, should I? If nobody wants to share...no problem...
    played a little and fps already dropped to around 50, which is not good...
    Here are 2 pics of a farming village...every inch of fertile land is used ^^

    EDIT: did I sound rude or something? English is not my first language...

    I strongly recommend the use of mods. Download them one by one as you like, but always read the instructions ;)
    You can look up the City Journals or Media sections to see how mods affect a city ;)
    Tutorial - Beginner's Guide <- That will help ;)

    I couldn't handle playing without mods after all these years of using them. They bring the game more to life. If your just using the game for its simulation aspect then mods won't help you much. Apart from any that help with the core of the game.

    But "awesome" only works with mods ;) just look at some of the top city journals or within the media section^^
