Default Snow Texture Overlay on Road Tearing/Flickering
Hi, get ready for some ~Sims Woes~ because this is just a small price to pay for such a ~fabulous~ game!

UPDATE: After looking a little more closely at the problem, it appears as though the snow texture overlay for the on-lot road is the problem. Not sure how exactly to fix something like this (either with SimPE or by some other means.)

Original Post:
I just re-downloaded the Ultimate Collection about a week ago, and I've discovered that when it snows lightly on the ground, the road does this odd texture tearing/flickering. This is NOT the same thing as the UC flickering glitch, as I have Graphic Rules Maker and that has already been corrected. This odd texture tearing only occurs on the piece of road which is on the lot, and ONLY when it is light snow on the ground. Initially, I thought it was caused by Voeille's No More Blurriness snow, but actually there is no change with or without it in the game.

I've already repaired the game using Origin, no change. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, no change either. Making changes in my Intel Graphics panel did nothing either.

Please advise. Thanks.

Does this happen on all lots, or just one specific lot?

I have tested it on about 4-5 lots, in seperate neighbourhoods, but all in a main hood. Have not tried University or Downtown, but I very much doubt that it's any different.

Do you have any custom graphics settings for Sims 2 in your graphics card control panel? For example, GEForce experience, or such like.

Check it out and try setting all options to application contolled.

So I actually took everything out of my game, uninstalled, cleaned up everything and reinstalled. Same issue. So i'll poke around the Integrated Graphics stuff for a while and see what changes.

I just found this thread, so sorry for reviving it. I have the same problem, which is why I've turned off winter in my game, which sucks though. Does anyone else share the struggle or found a way to possibly fix this?

You don't ever need to uninstall and reinstall the UC. If you have tried everything and some problem is still there go into Origin, right click the game and select fix.
