Waterworld Terrain For Dirt Neighborhoods!

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 dirt neighborhoods will change to the water terrain. When you want your dying grass back, just remove it from the Downloads folder.

Matching floortile, terrain paint, and mod for temperate neighborhoods can be found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=167299

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.

~Coming Soon: Same mod for desert and concrete neighborhoods. Check back in a bit! 380)

Wow, I was just wishing for such a thing. I've been playing around with trying to build a canal city. I was just whining this afternoon about how bad the edges were always going to look. Just as soon as I can get this downloaded, I'm going to start building.

Hi. Do you think it is possible to make this type of mod but with outer space background? I mean, instead of water or sand, there should be stars, galaxies, a supernova, etc. Thank you.

It looks beautiful in your pictures! Thank you! If you make something to change the streets to water I'm sure, we'll get some driveable boats and "... island in the sun ..." soon!

Glad you like it! Yeah, I can probably make the neighborhood object.

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!

Possibly. The leaves would end up being humongo though!

Interesting, but I hate it (no offense). It's not that it's not a good idea, but it doesn't go over dirt, it goes over grass. So my Pleasantview looked really odd.

Hmm....that's pretty odd. I've tested this, and it only covered dirt. You sure your Pleasantview had the grass terrain, not dirt?

I LOVE this Water neighborhood terrain BUT, I am having trouble with mine. I went to my neighborhood I wanted water in and I, (by the way it was already created with temperate terrain don't know if that matters), changed my temperate to dirt but it only showed the normal dirt no water. Can you possibly help me with this?

Try taking out the dirt package, load that specific neighborhood again, quit the game, put the dirt package back in the Downloads folder, and see if that gets it to work.

Also, this may seem like a silly question, but did you extract the rar file? Right+click on the downloaded file, and select Extract Here.... Otherwise the download won't work properly. Here's a link to an extractor: www.win-rar.com
