2) This set
Hi again all!
Decay effects for streets, as Terrain Paint (Ground Cover), with a Street Base tool allowing you to erase parts of any effect with its own seamless background.
Pixelhate is my favourite MTS2 artist for urban decay special effects. I wanted to try making something of a similar kind, but as Terrain Paint - editable at will!
Cities mean enough evil for Mother Nature as it is, this is absolutely not destined for natural grounds, but rather to uglify environments of sand, concrete or dirt. (No EP necessary)
Check the picture bin for more information.
The set contains 12 seamless Terrain Paints:
2 tones of asphalt, Normal and Wet
10 special effects
I suggest you to spray your whole street with the Street Base (normal Asphalt), then spray your special effects over the Street Base.
You can spray and spread the dirt and ugliness as much as you like, and erase parts of it with the Street Base to make your landscape personal and add realism.
You can combine this with my other set of Street Art Tools to create a zone where both Street Art and decay can be seen, like in most cities.
If you are unsure how to create a street within a lot, you can keep rows of empty space in large lots. Or you can use Mootilda's Lot Adjuster and include roads in your lots and paint on them, too. If you have Nightlife and use cars, you can use special tools like MogHughson's 'Park in the Car Park' mod, and you'll see your cars use your streets.
If you need more inspiration, I got links below to alot of detritus, graffitis and other decorative grunge stuff made by talented creators. Lots and lots of awesome stuff to make YOUR OWN organized messy streets.

Thanks for trying this. Enjoy!
My Plain Street Base texture is an edit of my 'Dream' floor. Photoshop 'Cracks' brushes by Steven Snell and Room 122. Cigarettes texture borrowed from the NY Times Online.
Thanks to Pixelhate for his kind advice, encouragements and mini-tutorial for this set and its next parts. It's been great to get help from someone with so much experience and talent.
