deactivate construction-animations

#1

Post by mdk_813 » Sat Jul 01, 2017 19:04

Hi folks,
is there an option to deactivate the construction-animations after plopping a building? You know, I'm talking about these animations in which a scaffolding slowly rises up until the actual building is finally revealed.
I play in sandbox mode exclusively, so realism and simulation are not my main priorities. Instead I'm more focused on aesthetics and ease of use. So, it would be super useful for me if I was able to see the plopped building immediately and not having to wait 5 minutes until it finally shows up.
I mean, I can live with these animations for growable buildings, but I would really prefer the ability to deactivate them for ploppable buildings.

Thanks!

I agree. I don't think building time is really necessary for every sandbox city, so an option for that would be nice.

Thanks for your support!
I actually think that earlier versions (a year ago or so) did not have these animations when you plopped a building. I'm not quite sure, maybe someone can confirm this? But I think it was changed in the meantime and I really don't like it very much...

Not long ago, I think it may be a month or two ago.
Ah, alright thanks.
I wasn't sure about when it happened but somehow I noticed a change. The sandbox mode suddenly just felt less convenient than before, and actually, in a way it prevented me from playing in recent weeks, even though I do like most of the new content very much. It's a pity really.
I really do hope that Lobby will make these animations optional, at least in sandbox mode.
Please!
