How to Test Performance for 100K Population in Cities: Skylines 2
Picture this: you’re the mastermind behind a thriving urban landscape, teeming with life and home to over 100,000 citizens in Cities: Skylines 2. Sounds thrilling, doesn’t it? Well, that excitement comes with its fair share of commitment!
Truth be told, sculpting your virtual metropolis isn’t a walk in the park. We’re talking 20 to 30 hours of gameplay here. That’s way beyond Steam’s standard refund window, so it’s a one-way ticket, my friend. But, who returns an adventure, right?
Unlocking City Secrets: Shared Triumphs
But hey, what if I told you there’s a way to sneak a peek at the full-blown city experience without the time sink? Yep, our unique collaborative savegame feature! It’s like taking a shortcut to see your city blossom in Cities: Skylines 2. And the cool part? You can share your city’s heartbeat with buddies, even if you’re all over the Steam universe. Just grab the savegame post-launch, and you’re in!
Where Does the Magic Happen? Importing Savegames
So, you’re all set to jump back into urban planning? Awesome! Here’s how you get rolling:
- Start your journey at this hub. That’s where you’ll snag the savegame.
- Done downloading? Great! Now, unzip those fresh files.
- Next up, take a detour to this spot: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\LocalLow\Colossal Order\Cities: Skylines II\Saves\[Steam ID]. Trust me; it’s worth the trip.
- Got the files? Copy and paste them into that nifty folder you just found.
- Now, hit the ignition, fire up the game, and load your save. Adventure awaits!
And just like that, you’re back, with the skyline of your dreams just a click away!
Need-to-Know for Newbies
No save folder in sight? No problemo! You can whip one up faster than a food truck’s lunch rush. Just head over to the Users directory, do a little digging, and you’ll hit the motherlode. Now, the AppData folder is a bit of a wallflower—it hides. But coax it out into the open by toggling “Show hidden files” in your folder settings, and you’re golden.
Oh, and that folder with your Steam ID plastered all over it? It pops up after your first save in Cities: Skylines 2. Want a sneak peek of your ID? Check under your profile name on Steam’s main page. It’s like finding your urban planning superhero badge!
Remember, the city in this savegame isn’t some flawless utopia. Nope, it’s raw, real, and ready for a performance check. Oh, and it’s set at night, so things might run a tad slower than daylight. But, you can always flip off the night switch if you’re a sunshine-and-roses kind of planner. Happy building!
