This city's always got a promise for you. Might be a lie, an illusion. But now it's there, the monorail system came to Cyberpunk 2077 one year after the game's launch and it wasn't even CD Projekt Red who implemented it.

Nexus Mods has served as a hub for making games better for more than a decade now and it's usually Bethesda's bug fests that see the most benefit from the site. This time around, it was the single most hyped up game in recent history, one that cut out features as basic as public transit while attempting to meet the release date, which was moved several times already.

The mod was created by keanuWheeze and uploaded by NexusGuy999 who already has a lot of mods that provide somewhat simple, yet essential quality of life upgrades for adventuring in the Night City.

Metro System mods adds the monorail we've seen in that trailer that got everyone super hyped at E3 2018 and players can utilise one of the 19 stations handbuilt by the mod developer to start using the system.

Such a project might seem like it would require an entire team of people to develop and you would be partially right if you thought so.

The mod developer credited numerous other people for showing them the ropes as well as those working on Cyber Engine Tweaks, which enables more complex mods to function in the first place. That said, it does appear like the actual work on this specific mod was mostly done by one person. It looks fairly humbling, considering that a game with a total budget of over $300 million couldn't get it from the start.
