While building things I want to see the overlays from other modes so I can make better decisions.
Can I lock an overlay somehow?

For example:
When building roads I want to see the natural resources overlay.
When zoning I want to see the wind overlay

  • Are you asking how to do this in the base game, or are mods OK?

  • I was asking in the base game, but mods would do the trick I guess. Do all mods disable achievements? Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 10:01

    By default, when Cities Skylines detects mods, it automatically disables achievements. There's a mod on the Workshop (if you're using Steam) that re-enables them.

This mod should help you out. It works with zoning and placing roads/buildings. There is an Infoviews button in the top right that toggles the overlays.
