How To Make Cities: Skylines Look Like Borderlands

How To Make Cities: Skylines Look Like Borderlands

Love Borderlands‘ cartoony vistas and pastel-coloured expanses? Well, now you can make your game of Cities: Skylines look just like it — minus roughly a million gallons of blood, of course.

The Bordercities 2 mod gives the absurdly popular (and infinitely moddable) Steam city builder the Borderlands series’ trademark cel-shaded look by doing these things:

-Adds ‘edge detection’, a visual style made popular by games such as Borderlands and XIII, to Cities: Skylines.

-Uses the Unity engine’s official ‘Edge Detection’ effect in tandem with hand-crafted and meticulously tested Cities:Skylines-specific implementation, ensuring the effect remains balanced regardless of ingame context.

Neato! Its creator, Hingo, says it goes great with other graphics mods like sun beams, which you can grab in this wondrous chest of a thousand graphics (or a few, whichever).

Work on the Bordercities mod is ongoing, so expect even better visuals and personalisation options in the near future. Also expect 87 bazillion guns probably never.
