Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Cause concrete just won't do. Changes all lush terrain roads to dirt roads. Just place in the downloads folder, and when you want asphalt again remove it from the folder.

Edit: Added matching floortile by request.

This ISN'T compatable with any other hacks that edit the lush terrain, ex. the snowy neighborhoods.

Works with any version of the game.

I feel like this was probably already asked (or everybody just happens to know the answer) but I couldn't figure it out, so - is there a way to get ride of the asphalt road that shows up in front when you're playing a specific house?

BTW, thanks so much - this has made period play-time so much more accurate.

You could use the moveobjects on cheat, delete the road in front of the house, and replace it either with the matching floortile or terrain paint. (The terrain paint is the dark one that comes with the base game.)

Hey fellow simmers, I'm not here at the moment. I've left the simming community for other hobbies in life. Eventually I will be back. Until then, don't expect any of your questions to be answered. Until I come back....

Happy simming!

Thank you so much! I play only my medieval neiberhood and that *** modern roads were driving me mad. I wonder if there's any way to get rid of the cars as well?

I know I'm going to sound like a bit of an idiot, but how do I remove the dirt road? I tried to find the file in my downloads folder but I don't know the actual name of the file as it was in one of those file package things.
I downloaded it a while ago for potential use but I accidently installed it when I had to reinstall my game.
