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.
