Cities: Skylines mods

If you want to build your own mods, you can find great information at

Mods make the Cities: Skylines game more life-like and enjoyable. Modders add functionality that the game producers did not feel important, or just didn’t think about.

Unfortunately when a new version of the game is released, some mods “break”, and stop working. This happened after the Plazas and Promenades update on September 14, 2022.

You can find the Cities: Skylines game version in the lower left corner of the Paradox Interactive launcher.

When you open the Content Manager of the game and one of the mods shows that it is out of date, Steam did not download the update.

To get the latest version of the mod

  • Unsubscribe the mod
  • Close the game
  • Close Steam
  • Open steam again
  • Open the game again (Play)
  • Open the Content Manager
  • Subscribe to the mod again
