Cities Skylines: How to Install Patch Loader in MacOS

Patch Loader mod installation guide for MacOS users

 

Installation

Due to how the Patch Loader and MacOS system works the user needs to perform additional action to make the mod working.


Navigate to game directory, usually it’s located in
/Users/<your_name>/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Cities_Skylines

Important: make sure that Cities_Loader.sh file is present, if not launch the game and enable Patch Loader mod on the Content Manager -> Mods tab first.


Navigate further to the Cities.app/Contents/Launcher
Find the file launcher-settings.json and open it in any text editor as shown below

Before change

Find and change value of “exePath” property replacing “../MacOS/Cities” with “../../../Cities_Loader.sh” as shown on the screenshot in the section After change

After change

Final words

Save laucher-settings.json file and run game as usual.

If everything was done correctly game should launch normally and Patch Loader mod should stop warning about “Critital error”.

Keep in mind that future Paradox Launcher updates may overwrite the config file so above procedure needs to be performed once again.
