During that transition there will be an interruption in service of up to two weeks. Skullz613 is now a full administrator of XLNation. Be kind to him.

    Here is an easy way to figure it out using a troubleshooting technique of "halves"

    1. Create a Two Temp Folders on your desktop, one named Good and one named Bad
    2. Move half your mods into this Bad Folder folder
    3. Restart Cities XX / XXL and try to start a NEW city. Does the game start? If you answer is YES then you know the mods remaining in your Mods folder are "good." Close Cities XL and move those mods into the Good Folder you your desktop. If the game does not start then you know some mod or mods in the mod folder is causing a crash. Move half those mods back to your desktop "Bad" folder. Then launch game and rinse and repeat.

    The idea is to slowly eliminate the "good" mods until you find the bad mods creating the problems

    Note: Mods that are "required" aka "dependencies" such as the User Interface Mod, or Community Mod, obviously need to remain in the games mod folder
