Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Water as neighborhood terrain, just in time for summer! Just place the file in your Downloads folder, and all temperate neighborhoods will change to the water terrain. When you want your grass back, just remove it from the Downloads folder.

You can also download matching floortiles and terrain paint here too.

In the neighborhood view, if you don't like the way the roads look, (they do look different, but I left them this way so you can see where to place lots) there's a simple cheat that fixes this. Press Ctrl+Shift+C, then in the box that comes up type "boolProp displayNeighborhoodRoads false" without quotes. The roads disappear, but you can still place lots there. Change "false" to "true" to turn off the cheat.

Feel free to use any of these in stories, lots, whatever. Just don't claim any of them as your own, and a link back here is appreciated.

Update 6/28/06: Water for dirt terrain is now available here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=169909
Coming soon at the same link: Water for desert and concrete neighborhoods.

Wow! I never seen that like before. Your floor tile is so amazing. Like real water! I want to go jump into your water to cool off.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Thank you! I've been requesting this for years and everyone said it couldn't be done. yay! I knew it could be done!

Can you post a clue how to change the terrain you have chosen for a different color water if I like?

#11 Old 24th Jun 2006 at 10:36 PM
this is great, the colour etc is fab, very like real water, thank you so much. Like some of the others here i would love it if you would make this so it replaces dirt or concrete, which we dont use much of so we can still have temperate as well. thanks again.

You mean the whole neighborhood is covered in water? That's how it's supposed to look. And ALL temperate neighborhoods will look like this. So if all your neighborhoods are the temperate terrain (it's the brightish green one), they're all gonna look like this. If your other terrains like the desert one are converting to this, I don't know why it's doing that. Hope this helps.

To get your green back, just simply remove this download from the Downloads folder.

playboykittn: You mean 'water terrain' as in the paint-like stuff you find in Build Mode that you can use only in lots (sorry that's the best way I could explain it-my smart juice has left me at the moment)? Download the WaterworldTerrainPaint.rar package above to your Downloads folder. After you extract the file inside, double+click on it to install it to your game.

Or do you mean in the 'Make a new neighborhood, choose terrain...' screen there's no terrain called 'Water'? That's cause I never figured out how to do that. Just select the Lush option and the new neighborhood will have the water terrain, along with all the old Lush ones.

Hope this clears things up a bit! I ain't the best at 'splaining. 380)

This is just so great, I have no words. I am waiting for the one to change all my dirt neighborhoods to water. I love the idea of making a deserted island neighborhood. Tiki time everyone!!

You'll have to go through your Downloads folder and look for the files "Water_TemperateTerrain.package" "WaterworldFlooring.SIMS2PACK" "WaterworldTerrainPaint.SIMS2PACK" and delete them. The neighborhood terrain will be gone then, and you can delete the terrain paint and flooring from within the game.

The only thing I can suggest is redownloading to see if that fixes it. If it doesn't, then at least you'll know the number of the file to search for. All the files were defenitely not named with numbers, so I have no idea why it should suddenly want to do that.
