Die Patchnotes für den kostenlosen DLC sind im 4. "CO word oft the week" enthalten.
Last week we went over the new features and today we should look into what else this patch brings along. Not only did we work on the water structures and landscaping tools but also tried to fix as many bugs as we could as well as work on improvements. Similar work will continue during the spring, so please don't give into despair even if the most annoying bug for you hasn't been looked into yet.
We have gotten a lot of requests about the road elevation being too steep. Therefore the roads, paths, tunnels and tracks now have a new button in the Option panel where you can select snapping and straight or curve type. The button has 3 states and can be used to cycle through 3 preset heights for the elevation step when using page up and page down. This will give a little bit more precision to laying those roads. Placing of the dams should also get slightly easier with the terrain topography visible in the build view.
The theme editor got some bugs fixes, like the water normal for a theme not getting saved and the grass colour offset values not getting updated. There's also improved error handling for mods that break and disable other mods. We really hope this will make it easier for players to find broken mods after an update. On top of that we fixed a ton of localization bugs and other smaller issues. Read the full patch notes at the end of the post.
I want to thank all the community members for providing us invaluable feedback and rooting us to continue developing Cities: Skylines forward
We have a couple of days off because of Easter and later next week I will be rather busy representing at some local events. Therefore I'll skip the word next week and get back to you in April. In the meanwhile remember to Praise the Chirper to win tickets to visit us here in Tampere.
Happy Easter and I really hope you enjoy the update!
