Scans all your transport lines looking for lines without a custom color and name. If it finds them it’ll mark them with a different hue of the line color (e.g. blue for bus) and a line name based off the districts the line runs through.
The colors only show when you make a new line. Your lines that you made before subscribing to the mod saty the default color.
It’s always been the case since the beginning not
Self color mod does is to put a different color, except thou thyself to change. Cities Skylines Mods
Or you say that makes you a new color automatically anyway?
Some mod deactivated when you are anchored in your backup. As the slow slope mod (which allows the elevation of roads / rails etc as sparingly) remains activated in your backup even if you have disabled in the mods.
It is also possible that your mod is assigned a color to each line automatically and this information remains in your backup (because it is an information editable by the player), which would explain why so keep your line color has been set. New color picking strategy and naming are now supported, plus customization of the color lists. By default it will stick to the default line hues, but you can customize this. Settings are stored in the Cities Skylines root. After running the mod for the first time, the default settings will be placed here. Edit these and restart your game Cities Skylines Mod to use the new values.
Buses are pale. There are 3 levels of paleness, as I tend to have a lot of buses.
Metro are bright. There are 2 levels of brightness (full bright, and partly darkened).
Trains are dark.
Once the colors are exhausted the sequence repeats.
Valid values for NamingStragey are None, London or Districts. None will not set the names of the lines. London is a naming strategy inspired by transport naming schemes in London.
* Buses are named like: “9 Aldwych”, “33 Elm Heights”, “CH4 Local”
* Metro are named like: “Beech Line”, “Elm & Oak Line”, “Juliet Line”
* Trains are named like: “1X45 Westvalley”, “2G42 Elm to Grove”, “3J19 Sycamore Rail”
