Need advice on loading an abandoned mod.

I recently have been trying to start modding.  I found a mod for Cities: Skylines game that has been abandoned.  I thought I'd try to experiment on the mod to see if I could get it to work.

 

My problem is it won't load for me in Visual Studio.  I tried following the docs and some videos with no results.  I tried Google as well and nothing I find is helpful.

 

I'm new to Visual Studios as well.  I heard it was free to use, so I thought I'd try it.  But I'm open to any other app.

 

I'm hoping someone can give me some pointers and push me in the right direction.

Hi @rmjohnson144,

 

Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum! We're glad you're here.

 

I wanted to jump in here, and mention that if you don’t get the help you’re looking for from this particular community, you might want to try getting help somewhere that focuses on Visual Studio. It's definitely possible another GitHub user might have run into this same issue and can help, but the GitHub Community Forum focuses primarily on topics related to GitHub itself or collaboration on project development and ideas. We want to make sure you're getting the best support you can, but this forum may not be the right place for this particular topic.

 

Best of luck!

I agree, I have posted at Microsoft forums and hoping to get things sorted out.  I think it is just a proper setup needed and registration on both ends. 

 

Thanks for your help.

Could you point us towards the code of the mod?

There are several.  It is for the game Citoes: Skylines.  Here's one I was just looking at.

The original author doesn't have time to keep it up to date and I was going to attempt it.  I'm don't know what I'm doing, but want to take it on as a project to learn how to make game mods.

I am also looking for the code to use for the mod apk if you find it possible to show it to me, I'm very grateful for that action, it's a noble gesture
