This mod adds Less Steam to the Cities Skylines.
Authors description: This mod reduces unnecessary network traffic with Steam
Enable the mod as usual. The mod runs during the Paradox logo, so it will take effect the next time you start the game.
How much traffic is there?
Content Manager generates lots of it. If you have 1000 workshop subscriptions, the game does 2000 Steam requests when the main menu loads. This mod ensures that those requests aren’t made before you are actually looking at a workshop item in Content Manager.
That traffic is not used for gameplay. It is just additional information for display in Content Manager, for example asset author name.
