This mod adds shortcuts to rotate the brushes in the map editor of Cities: Skylines.


Activate the mod, load or create a new map, select a tool using a brush, then press CTRL+Q or CTRL+E. If you have rebound your keys to rotate the camera, this changes accordingly.

The rotation happens in steps of 15 degrees.

To reset a brush, select a different one.

Known issues

While rotating some brushes, artifacts are introduced (additional lines). Other brushes, especially large ones, will be cut off at the edge of the brush area. Brushes which don’t use their whole space work best.

The rotation blurs the brush slightly. This is due to the way it samples information from the original brush.

Sometimes, it takes two keypresses to rotate the brush once. This seems to happen after changing brushes.

Please report any additional issues you find.
