    I am trying to use RAM in XXL in order to do the procedure described here:

    sp | XLNation - Cities XXL

    I have managed to do this succesfully in XL. Example:

    [​IMG]

    I cannot do the same procedure in XXL and i get this message right before doing the small segments:

    [​IMG]

    -------------------------------

    The procedure needs two mods that i have already installed.
    The RAM: Transportation - Road Addon Mod (RAM)
    and the flexible positioning mod: General - Flexible Placement Mod

    I have installed both, both work as they should except RAM does not allow me to make a small increment street or road in XXL.

    i have tried:
    a) to change mods names so they load last, first or other alternatives
    b) removed ALL mods except these two and the community mod
    b) talked with Kipate who can use it sucessfully in XXL and has already provided valuable advise about the procedure but wasn't possible to find why it's not working in my XXL
    c) Ole had the same issue, sent him a message but he hasn't signed in for some time

    So. . . can anyone help shed some more light on it?

    Why can't i make a small increment road?

    Thank you in advance

    Trying to completely redo your work from the beginning,
    For some reason I have had the same problem as you,
    And then trying again, I managed to make a nice circle

    Thank you Drazicdesign. . . i must have tried it at least 20 times :cry:

    From what i understand, in order for the final piece of the road to be a perfect circle, the initial segment where it snaps must be of minimal size.
    This is where i am stuck. I cannot make this small increment in XXL although i have done it in XL.

    I ll try it once more :ROFLMAO:

    Actually, I just thought again about your problem. And if it works in XL, it works in XXL when you have the same mods installed. Hence you are missing the no collision streets.
    Changes - Small Collision Box Mod

    Thank you Kipate. It did not work, it's not this one. . . but you gave me a very good idea:

    "if it works in XL, it works in XXL when you have the same mods installed"

    I 'll go back to XL and do the reverse. Find which one pairs with it and makes it work in XL.
    back up all foders. . .removing all mods except the necessary, check it does not work in XL and getting them back in halves till i find the one. . . b. . . it 'll get some hours but worth it.

    I like your square, clear logic. . . :finger: . . . thank you. . . logic stands behind most things in this world indeed.

    was just about going to say the same...
    what i do know: you do not need RAM for this, its another mod which includes the nocolission roads, but unfortunately i cannot remember which one it is... :/
    (actually id remove ram for testing purposes since i dont use it and never had an issue building these smooth circles; there could always be a conflict)
    and flexible placement mod is not needed as well. as far as i know it only changes snap sensitivity of objects which do use a colission box. thats a global setting and has nothing to do with nocolission-roads. but uhm, welp...
    good luck and please tell us if u can find the mod that is needed (and includes no colission roads)

    As said Mr. X2. . . thank you and thank you all. . .

    The missing link is almost sure a mere 1Kb file that seems to be related to UIM, still putting it in XXL mods it seems i can start the small increment streets and then make the curvy sweet road. . .

    [​IMG]

    The small increment start is what enables the circles. . . ( this is my assumption now ) and when i added this UIM file from my XL mods to the XXL mods it was enabled.

    I will unpack it tommorow to see wtf is this sweet file, also indeed as suggested remove RAM and the flexible placement mod and test that all is table etc.

    I. .

    After 11 hours. . . HAAA. . . beer for all. . . ( a little. . . ) and then sleep for me

    Thank you, it seems it's solved. . . i wanna ensure it tommorow and triple check this is the culprit. . .

    :xllove: and a big thank you

    :boww:

    EDIT:
    RAM is needed i think , i'll have to triple check again, i also unpacked the specific 1kb file to see what it included and it's jus a line of code, related to UIM, we 'll ss. . . worthy of some digging to find what's going on

    1) The mod that contains the no collision roads is this one already named above: Changes - Small Collision Box Mod
    I unpacked it already years ago, so I know its content.

    2) RAM is NOT needed. I have two XXL mod folders, one for American Cities, one for Chinese Cities. The folder for the American Cities has DrazicDesign's US Road Pack in it, for which I deinstalled the RAM.

    3) Also I highly doubt that a mod related to the UIM has any effect on the no collision streets. "Resource Mode On" means what it means, all resources enabled.

    Indeed, it's the one @kipate was saying right at start.

    We should probably post in here: sp | XLNation - Cities XXL some clarification, regarding what needed. RAM is not needed. . .

    Thank you Kip! Solved.
