Update: removed Small Parking Lot V1.0, it cause game crashes!

Update: so, finally I had a bit time to fix all links and to add all missing and new mods. Now the list should be up to date.

Update: there is a new page, thats the reason why all links are broken, I will try to fix them before my vacation!

Recently @HawkeraBG asked me via twitter where he can find a full list of mods I use in my Cities XL Waterfront City series. I answered him: Well, unfortunately nowhere but that’s a good point! It’s definitely a good idea, so with this post I’d like to begin a list of all mods, including download links, I have installed into my Cities XL pack folder.

I will keep this list up to date, I added also a entry for this list to the Cities XL drop down menu at the top menu bar. So you are always able to find this list quickly. And here we go:


(almost because this is just the first version based on a personal list of mods I already had and mods I can remember I had installed but were not on my list. That means this list is not complete at the moment but I will check it back with my pack folder and than I will do a update)

IMPORTANT: Please don’t forget to leave a five Star rating for the mod creator on Install mods only on your own risk, always do a backup of your cities save files first before you add any new mods to your game.

Also IMPORTANT: Please, always read the mod description, especially for pre- requisite mods. They should be part of this list but just in case if I’ve forgotten to add them here.

I reviewed some of these mods, please click on the mod name to watch the showcase episode of this mod on my youtube channel.

If you miss anything or if a link doesn’t work, please write a comment.

    Just saying, I’m not sure, but the links on your mods list are broken. When I clicked on them, they just redirected me to lxnation’s main site.
