Cities: Skylines - Parklife Dev Diary #2: Tours

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

PS I also bulldoze every tree off the map and place every tree that you see, so... please make a tree eraser and tree brush. (I really need to go back to using at least a few mods!)

I suspect with being able to plop props, I will be back to having way too many assets again as well. :)



Tree brush was expected on green cities DLC, now is important to be add this time .

2 things:
  1. Will walking tours have clumps of tourists following a tour guide a la real life
  2. Are the double decker buses open topped with tourist animations to take photos etc. a la real life
Also, are you adding new tourist models?


The tourists cims need to have the animation of taking photos.

How did you make those mini lakes? Use a mod to add a water source?

In the picture that has one of the park areas burned out, and there is a mini-lake inside the roundabout exit at the end of the highway, I presume I used a mod for a water source. It was a long time ago. Back then I had tons of assets and a fair number of mods.

In the first batch of pictures, from my current city, I had to use a Water Outlet, since I haven't been using mods.

Kind of sucks, because it needs power, and if you leave it turned on too long, it floods the area. After it is turned off, the water slowly disappears. Have to turn it back on.

They should make it so that it will automatically switch off when the water level reaches the same as the outlet or make it so that the water won't disappear.

Also any park life element added to Snowfall maps?

I wondered about that myself, but I dunno... The whole thing about not crossing the DLCs, because all life as you know it would stop instantaneously, and every molecule in your body would explode at the speed of light. Total protonic reversal. Right. That's bad. Okay. All right. Important safety tip. Don't cross the DLCs! :eek:

I think there is a lot that could be done with Parklife on winter maps. I suppose at least the free stuff should work. Maybe we'll be able to do something? Should be able to do it all.

Here's a few screenshots for those who've been wondering if the Parklife works on winter maps:

I never tried to build such huge park in a border of the city. I always place them inside areas where it can provide maximum of its happiness bonus to the neighborhood. Therefore, since you did it, I was wonder on how does your big park interract with the game mechanics: is it only for the nice look of the city (i.e. for the eyes of the player), or does it still bring valuable happiness bonus to the city?

Cims do travel to visit such things but you are correct that it minimizes the value when done like that. This is a big part of why this DLC is such a big deal. When we are able to set them up as large specialized entities and put an entrance near the rest of our city we'll maximize simulation interaction and have our pretty.

Yeah, I've never really been happy with the fact that it concentrates so much "happiness" in one area, rather than spreading it everywhere, which is more likely beneficial game mechanic wise.

However, I really enjoy the look of them more, and really enjoy making them more. It does still get a fair number of visitors. That most recent one has multiple road entrances, passenger rail, metro, and a pedestrian bridge into the area. While I do get some folks using it as a transit hub, lots enjoy the park.

The earlier map had a lot of small park areas stretching over larger parts of the city:

I found this easier to do with mods (mainly a plopping props mod) and assets.

Parklife seems like it would be beneficial to both types of park.

Oh my god Oh my god this looks AMAZING! You are WONDERFUL PEOPLE!

Cross posting a question with the other developer diary I just read. Will there be an option to have wildlife (deer, bear, occasional wolf) wandering around the nature parks, similar to the zoo? Aquatic life (dolphin, whale, turtles) in the water?

I can't wait!!!

Kinda bummed that this exp doesn't look like it's going to include public beaches or ski resorts...
Other than that, I'm super-excited to play Parklife!
