This is best completed with the 202 Terrains Replacement and the 303 Terrains Replacement

Necessary changes for and since Seasons :
- all files are now 512x512 pixels.
- all alpha's have been reworked.
- there seems to have interactions between floorpaints and changing seasons, and they are not the same for each world. We are still figuring out how Eaxis works.
- regarding a bug with the business lot in San Myshuno : it is important to NOT USE the previous floorpaints and USE the new ones. We tested these new files, we could access the lot each time.

As this is a work in progress, there will be more updates.

Having new grass, new sand and new dirt is all fine and perfect but what if you want to use some too ? What if you also want to change your backyard ( or the front yard ) ? No fear my friend, here is the 44 Maxis floorpaints replacement files that are available in Build Mode

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 the same file 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 seems to stretch the same file 8 times larger than on the play field. We worked hard to level the differences between the limits of your place and the rest of the world so everything is harmonious and seamless as possible. Unless we get a World Builder or a confirmation of our hypothesis, this is the best we can do.

.
But, what if you don't have some cities ?
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 ! Everything works really fine

.
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.

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 ones, and work fine in game
