05/05/2016 : IMPORTANT ! Rock textures have been updated. From 45 rock texture replacements and 4 grass on rocks texture replacements ! You have to replace the old files with these new ones
This is best completed with the 44 Floorpaints Replacement and the 42 Floorpaints Addendum
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Remember when we said that terrain replacements were a work in progress ? We did not lie, we kept learning about the files of the game and we are now proud to have reach a new level. Let's introduce a new version of our terrain mod.
202 Terrains Replacement ... A big challenge idea and it covers all cities ( including Oasis Spring
, Granite Falls
), everything where your pixelated feet can go, the ground has been changed :D
Will it overkill your game ?
Not at all
. EA files for Worlds are 1024px, we used the same. We did not updated the file size, we changed/modified the textures. This is why it is a replacement.
Ok. Still, doesn't look quite the same outside your backyard than in the park next door.
We know. We are working on it
. Maxis doesn't manage terrain files the same way everywhere. Here is our hypothesis : outside your playground, there's a grid. The game is applying the file on a grid which seem to stretch the same file perhaps 8 times larger than on the play field. We worked hard to level the differences between the limits of your lot and the rest of the world so everything is harmonious and seamless as possible. Unless we get a World Builder Tool or a confirmation of our hypothesis, this is the best we can do ... Well maybe not the best of the best
but this is a stable work still in progress
But, what if you don't have some cities ?
Everything works fine. Well don't worry, the game won't load what it can't use. It won't crash your game
, nothing will be missing. It will just work in theory ... Magic !
Let's move on ... What is this about ?
This is indeed a multipart set :
- 44 Grass Terrains Replacement
They override some of the games files. They replace everything terrain files based game. It's green ? It's grass ? BAM ! It's k-hippied. No question asked (xx)
We couldn't do it with that vomito green since the beginning. Grass, real one. One you wish Pets was released so your little pets could happily roll in it :D
You can feel the grass under your pixelated feet don't you ? You can smell the fresh perfume of summer or spring ... Grass to take over Willow Creek !
- 73 Sand and Earth Terrains Replacement
All that is a bit sandy, a lot sand or totally beach. We never thought there will be so much sands in that game when green is all over the place. With this replacement with thought about the players who likes to play in Oasis Spring, or on the small island of Windenburg. You all deserve a real impression of sands, not just a vague beige colour.
- 45 Rock Textures Replacement
These files will change the look of all rocks that are terrains but not the one in Build mode. We will do them too on a later date ( but soon
) They will give a better look at all that is rock or cliff. The textures might be a bit stretch, we respected EA files of 1024x1024 but we are not quite please with the result. As always, it's a work in progress
- 4 Grass on Rocks Replacement
You'll need this file to get your patch of grass on some rocks with the same look and feel. And with a real rock feel
- 12 Streets Replacement
If vomito-green was too much for us, can you imagine how it felt to have those street with some grass without our grass ? Errr ... it was terrifying but we found all of them. Good thing there was precursors ! Evil laugh
- 27 Granite Falls Terrains Replacement
This one is obvious. All your camping grounds are now really good looking, no more hangover of the ground. Sing Kumbaya with marshmallows under the stars around a campfire, get a feel of Mother Nature's refined textured grounds
- 33 Windenburg Terrains Replacement
Our sims went to Windenburg and brought with them the secrets of nice textures. They applied their knowledge and are now living on the island to chase the aquatic monster.
Be the master of your terrains and lots !
Please note, we will update as we go for this set
Don’t hesitate to ask questions and remember, replacements won't overload your game. We have tested all this for 3 weeks and we got no problrm at all
Since you can't have our files with another creator's files replacement, here is a pro tip : put all the files in a folder inside your Mods folder. When you'll wish to change, you'll know where to look
These files override the game files, and work fine in game …
