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.

Great for users with other themed neighbourhoods! Thank you!
Please don't forget roads with snow before winter is over and nobody will remember it before next year. (*hint*)
Thanks again

Glad you like it! No sidewalks, matching floor, and snow roads; it's all possible and I'll see what I can do.

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!

It's kinda stupid that this will change terrain to my all cities, and I want to change it just to some towns, like my magic neighborhood.....
or is it?

It changes all neighborhoods with the lush terrain. I don't know of any way to confine it to one neighborhood, sorry.

Could you do this for the dirt neighborhood? That is what I use for my rustic neighborhood since I feel like the lush neighborhood looks too suburban and cared for... and mountains look weird when they are covered by a lawn... I guess the dirt would have to be a different color from the default dirt, maybe some of the maxis ground textures? Or the sand color used on the beaches?

also, what is this cheat that supposedly hides the roads?

I think maybe if you just made it so the sidewalks are invisible, but still present, it would be a good idea, because I think without them there can be problems with the functioning of the game?

great job!
you can also remove sidewalks with boolprop locktiles [true/false]

Perfect for period/fantasy hoods! Do those stupid cars still zip up and down it in neighborhood view?

Yes, the cars still function normally in Neighborhood View. Ellatrue, I can cover up the sidewalks and make them look like part of the road.

Great! This is exactly what I've been looking for! But is there any way to make it just work in one neighborhood at a time? And I'm with whoever said it would be nice to get rid of the sidewalks as well.

I can't confine it to one neighborhood, but I can cover up the sidewalks so you can't see them.

Most of my neighborhoods are Victorian, or Neo-Victorian, this will be a great addition, much better than that ugly asphalt. I just wondered if you could also do somethng in cobblestone. I do not mean to look "a gift horse in the mouth" so to speak, but you will never know if you don't ask. Anyway, once again thanks.
