    Everything is possible, but nobody here have any clue how to make it.
    So, practically, it's impossible.

    Let me just say as someone who has had contact with said "developer guys" that I would keep my hopes in check, at least in regards to map size.

    :think:Still think that such a mod doubling the map size would be revolutionary and lets just keep hope that someone might be good enough to invent such.....

    Doubling the size would yield a map area that is 4 times bigger than the given map;
    I don't really thinkt that people's PCs would be able to cope with such sizes...

    Edit: Misread your text, okay, when you double the size, you will have about 15x15 km²
    (now we have about 10x10 km²); still, that will be a lot...

    Sorry man. I should have been more constructive in my first response.
    As far as I know, the official Cities XXL forum is the only avenue to contacting the developers. I have seen actual responses from the "Focus Team" there, though they were mostly vague and generic.

    It would be a nice addition to the game indeed. It's making it happen that would be a problem; something only the developers can do so far as I'm aware.

    I might get blasted for this, but I do miss the region like setup from SimCity (was it 3000?). Especially being able to have unlimited links back and forth. Those regions could end up looking like sprawling counties or metro areas

    I liked the region setup from SimCity as well (it was in 4). The region menu gave amazing views and you could expand it much farther beyond the CXL map size. Unfortunately the individual city tiles were still very constrained, but you still got the sense of a continuous metro area if you built out far enough.

    I do agree... thankfully they weren't like SimCity 2013.. Seesh, those city tiles killed the slightest chance of me purchasing it.

    Agree, It's need C++ to expand map
