Am I the only one thinking the TS3 moon looks like a blurry milky circle? Well, now no more! Here for you I provide a Hi-Res moon that will not only help your eyes, but also all those users who like to take screens or videos and have to edit the sky later because the moon sucked (I am one of these people). This is a must for everyone, because I doubt there are people who like that blurry moon >P
Now supporting the new lunar cycle!

This mods only alters the moon textures and so it does not conflict with mods that alter the sky (think of darker/less blue nights etc.) or the stars. Conflicts are non-existant if you DO NOT have another moon replacement mod.
Thanks to moryrie for remembering me to add this details.
I never thought I would've updated this mod ever again, but yeah... EA surprised me with this lunar cycle thing (even though it's bugged as hell).


Drop the package to the usual location "Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages" and delete your cache files.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
