Hello everyone,

The patch #4 for Cities XXL is now automatically available on Steam.

Patch #4 release notes (19/03/2015):

General
- Fixed different types of crash.
- Added camera sensitivity in Options>Miscellaneous.
- Various minor bug fixes.

Community
- Added a Dependencies field in the UGC Manager.
You can now specify if your mods need one or multiple dependencies to work with the Published File ID.
At the game launch, it can detect the missing dependencies. If so, the game will inform you that it will quit and will subscribe automatically for you the missing mods.

For example, your mod need the Cities XXL Community Mod and the XL Nation Furniture Dependency Pack.
You can find the Published File ID from the url:

steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=347768408
steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=381064686

So type 347768408 and 381064686 in the dependencies field.

We invite all modders to update their mods with the dependency information. And please do not forget to also specify it in the description of your mod.

Best regards,
Focus Home Interactive
