SimCity Gets First Live Mod

Maxis’ SimCity has received its first modded building and its creator, Redditor oppie85, discusses his method below.

Oppie85 said,

“I’m very proud to release the first true custom building model; a Central Train Station loosely based on a design I created for SimCity 4 back in the day. This is a proof-of-concept for the idea that we can eventually create custom models of similar quality to the ones we made for SimCity 4. Frankly this one still has a few rough edges, but consider that it’s only the first – as I improve the process of creating buildings further they can only become more detailed and more impressive.”

Oppie added about the need to change the station’s lot size,

“As more modding options might become available, these shortcomings might be amended. I’m also still working on tools to improve how we edit the lots, decals and other elements.”
