The backgrounds for the Blog App on the new Smartphone from University Life weren't too bad, but I wanted something a little closer to home, so here we are!

What this mod will do:
The 'Real Backgrounds for the Blog App' mod is an image override, and will replace the blog screen backgrounds for each blog type - Personal, Review and News - with real social network site app screens, namely Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr:

What this mod won't do:
The blogs will still be called blogs and won't behave any differently. The only change is the backgrounds.

The .zip file contains 4 flavours for the mod:
Mixed - this changes the Personal blog background to Facebook, the Review blog to Tumblr and the News blog to Twitter.
ALL Twitter - this changes the Personal, Review and News blog backgrounds to Twitter.
ALL Facebook - this changes the Personal, Review and News blog backgrounds to Facebook.
ALL Tumblr - this changes the Personal, Review and News blog backgrounds to Tumblr.

Compatible with 1.55! You may only have one "flavour" of this mod in your game at any one time. This mod was built with 1.50 and requires the University Life EP, I believe. It is an image override mod; it only changes 4 images that were added by the UL EP from the DeltaBuild0.package (ATLAS_BlogAppDialog_02, blog_background01, blog_background02 & blog_background03). Therefore, it should not conflict with any other mod, unless you happen to come across one which alters the exact same images. There are no known conflicts at this time. The mod should work for games in all languages.

How to use:
Simply unzip and place in your \Mods\Packages folder like you would with any mod and enjoy!
