Every time Steam updates, when I click on the desktop shortcut to open the game, Steam opens a box asking if I would like to install Cities: Skylines. I have not found any way around this. This means that whenever Steam updates, ALL of my progress is completely lost. I have tried going to Steam>Settings>Downloads>Steam Library Folders>Program Files\Steam then selecting Repair Library Folder. I also have gone to Program Files > Steam > steamapps > common > Cities_Skylines then running "Cities". All these direct me to the install box. Is there anyway at all to be able to play C:S with my cities?


Now it has happened to a different game as well, Home Wars! (https://store.steampowered.com/app/645790/Home_Wars/) Please help me, this is getting outrageous!!

  • "Every time Steam updates..." just to be clear, are you referring to a Steam client update or a CS game update?

I can't be sure that this worked but it worked for someone with the same issue, but apparently, you have to show hidden files.

  • That is not my issue. This person, to my understanding, did get into the actual game without any trouble, whereas I cannot get any further than the launcher. Dec 5 '20 at 22:21
