Cities: Skylines Content Creator Packs: Which are the Best to Buy?

Cities: Skylines is a fantastic city-building game. Playing mayor and building the city of your dreams is such fun. Since the base game was released in 2015, many DLCs and Content creator Packs (CCP) have been released that add to the base game.

Content Creator Packs (ccp) add a series of new buildings to your cityscape. They also add unique structures, and service buildings, new residential and commercial styles that will give your city a brand-new feel.

Which is the Best to Buy

Did you know that most creator packs were developed by Colossal Order with the help of the incredible members of the Cities: Skylines community, the modders? Colossal Order’s proceeds from selling the packs are shared with the modder who designed the content pack.

Art Deco LadiesGamers

Released in 2016, the Art Deco content creator pack adds to your city’s style with a collection of new buildings. This pack is from one of the top modders, Matt “Shroomblaze” Crux. Matt has designed a series of Deco-inspired buildings exclusive to this pack. The pack includes six residential buildings, six commercial buildings, and three unique buildings.

The art deco buildings are pretty and serve to add a new look to your city’s residential areas. It also adds such structures as a Central Hotel, Chirpcinema, Icecream Parlour, Laundromat, Radio Station and the Starlight Hotel. The Art Deco pack is quite nice to have, but it’s not a necessity.

Content Creator Pack: University City 15

University City LadiesGamers

The University City ccp, designed by Michael “KingLeno” Warren, adds thirty-six low-density residential buildings. In addition, there are thirty-two low-density commercial buildings and fifteen props. The props include commercial signs and logos to reflect the student residents in your neighbourhood.

Some of the buildings in the pack are great, especially the selection of commercials. However, the residential buildings do not come with a built-in theme. So you can’t use the district zoning to have a complete block of University residential buildings. There is a workaround using the Plopable RICO mod from the workshop, but the residential buildings will appear randomly in the vanilla game.

Content Creator Pack: High-Tech Buildings 14

High-Tech LadiesGamers

With the High-Tech buildings pack, you can bring your city into the future with a new set of unique buildings. In addition, ten new unique buildings and five technologically advanced city service buildings will prepare your town for a better tomorrow.

The high-tech pack by Mauro “GCVos” Vos adds five service buildings: a Cryopreservatory, Faculty, Intelligence Agency, Medical Laboratory and Wave Power Plant.

Some unique buildings are a Biodome, an Electric Car Factory, and a Nanotechnology Center. However, most facilities exist purely to add variety and aesthetics to your cityscape. Though the pack does include a couple of new utilities with functionality, it also pairs well with the Green Cities DLC.

Content Creator Pack: Modern City Center 13

Modern City Center LadiesGamers

Designed by Jason “AmiPolizeiFunk” Ditmars, the Modern City Center pack adds thirty-nine unique models featuring new modern commercial wall-to-wall buildings, often found in city centres. It also has semi-transparent glass barriers and awnings, allowing both modders and builders alike to create amazing new cities.

For players who like a bit more variety in their city, this is a good content pack, especially for a city centre. But otherwise, it is not required, nor does it change gameplay beyond aesthetics.

Africa In Miniature: offers a new world of possibilities set in the African Continent. The first Content Creator Pack from long-time Cities fan, 3D Artist Setonji Prince Set Hotonu, allows you to explore Africa’s exceptionally diverse architecture, vibrant colours, and unique urban mix.

This pack has 11 unique buildings, two monuments, four service buildings, nine growable buildings, and two props.

There is an Eco City Market and a large Conference centre along with other unique buildings such as Orumila Towers, Royal Museum and Sanctum of Oduduwa. The buildings in the pack are well designed, and the addition of the conference centre is excellent. However, while I like Africa in Miniature Pack, it isn’t a must-have content creator pack. The design of the buildings will be down to personal choice if you like them or not. You can read our preview here.

Cities: Skylines LadiesGamers
Japan CCP

This is a great content creator pack if you like Japanese infrastructure. However, despite this being a great pack, you can’t zone the buildings into your city. Instead, you must use a mod (Plopable RICO) and manually plop the buildings down on the map.

This pack would only appeal to players who like to make their cities’ waterfront stand out. I like the collection, but I enjoy decorating areas where the water meets the land, so I use the Piers in nearly every build. Its also great for adding walkability to your cims, which means less traffic on the roads.

Content Creator Pack: Heart of Korea 6

Heart of Korea LadiesGamers

You get South Korean-inspired buildings with the Heart of Korea CCP by Content Creator Elvis. There are twenty-nine growable low-density residential, seventeen growable high-density commercials, six service buildings and eight unique buildings.

Cities: Skylines LadiesGamers

I recently previewed the CCP Heart of Korea, and I like the style of the residential buildings, but they only hold a few residents, which is a drawback. It adds a flavour of the east to your city, especially if you place them with the Japan ccp pack.
