Central Train Station Mod Released for SimCity

The “first true custom building model” mod for SimCity has been released. The Central Train Station mod replaces the original train station and is now available to download.

The mod was created by “oppie85″ on Reddit and is based on a similar mod that he released for SimCity 4. The creator plans to “improve the process of creating buildings further” to allow them to “become more detailed and more impressive.” The mod itself isn’t perfect:

  • The lot size is still the original size; the model will “hang over” its lot at the sides. To make the train tracks look good, you should make sure that it is situated on a long stretch of unobstructed track. *Only one train track is actually used – the second one can be drawn by the player underneath the other platforms (for fun you can also draw a tram track there!)
  • The lot itself is quite empty
  • The capacity is the same as the original train station

Maxis recently drafted up a set of rules for modding in SimCity and requested that players and modders left their feedback on the rules, and modding in general, in this thread here. You can download the Central Train Station mod here.

What mods would you like to see released for the game in the future? Share your ideas below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
