    Nick2U,

    I have spoken to Altiris about this and he says the the tags will be added in the next UIM update.

    This UIM is amazing but just it's a pity the mods are not organised for all the buttons as some of them are inactive (not used). For example Harbour XL is not under harbour button. Is it up to modder where he places it in the menu or it's inactive? I noticed many mods are placed kind of wrong and with so many mods it's sometimes very hard to find what u want..

    That is why modders should upload a screenshot showing exactly where in the menu it can be found :)

    I know that but if u have many many mods installed then you don't remember placement of all of them, I was just wondering why some of the buttons are inactive.

    Yep some UIM menu icons will display no mods, erm if they have no mods yet assigned to them. Also some mods where released before the UIM so that is why they probably show in the main menu somewhere

    Ok is there anybody who could help me to figure out how to change the <tag> in class file of the building I wanna change for correct placement in menu? Lets say I wanna change Harbor XL buildings to show up under Harbor XL button in the menu. Is there any guide for this? I couldn't find any. I'd really appreciate it. I already learned how to make buildings OWP and no collision bcs the tutorial is nice and clear and I got interested into moding.. just cannot find anything apart the description for moders in CXL UIM but it's not clear the way the tag should be exactly written. Anybody to help?

    Hi, wonder if this mod could work in Cities XL Platinum? I have tried once but the items in the menu and its sub were not in the right order. Even some has disappeared. Do u have the version which is compatible with CXL Platinum? Thank u :)

    I wish the UIM had an LRU pallet of the last 4? items used so I wouldn't need to dig a down 3 levels to something I just used previously.

    I'm with a similar problem. I have installed Cities XL Platinum and UIM 1.79.9, but without mods and works very well. But when installed the "Mods" full of mods inside the folder "Paks" folder the game crashes when starts. UIM already reinstalled several times, but still the same thing.
    Can you guys help me?

    I have this same problem! The game just fails to start and Windows says "Program quit unexpectedly"

    But when I remove the mods it works fine.

    I really want to fix this.

    I did manage to solve it.. I deleted all the files at the User>Local>steam and uninstalled the game as well as UIM. Then reinstall back but this time i changed the location of installation to my desktop instead of the default location. Then install UIM into the same folder on the desktop.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I have installed UIM but there are no changes in the game (no new menu). I tried the installer and after reinstall the patch.
    What was my fault? oO

    The game crashes at startup.
    Ths is what is in the log.

    [22:26:43] CORE mcFilePack.cpp ( 546) ErrorBuild mcFilePack::SerializeFat() error for <paks\mods\xl_nation_karaaib_ent_msg_uim_v1.0.patch>

    I removed all the mods I added this month and still get the same.
    The only other change I can think of is a Windows7 update.

    I'm getting a little over frustrated because no one will simply explain WHERE to install this on the installer.. I have a steam version Cities XL Platinum and its getting a little annoying spending hours just figuring out a simple question that should have being ANSWERED by NOW.

    It's quite frustrating to get it working, but I'll try and explain it the easiest I can.

    Step 1:
    once downloaded, open the download file(I'm using Google chrome)
    and open the application for the interface

    Step 2:
    Don't extract the file anywhere, it's a self-extracting file, so all you need to do is select run

    Step 3:
    Make sure you download the file into this file C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cities XL Platinum
    (however, you'll need to find the drive that contains your steam file, this was where mines located and won't necessarily be yours)

    Step 4:
    Enjoy! Let me know if this helped you any! :)
