Equestrian Centre Map Tag Replacement *1.63 Compatible*

Updated to 1.63/ITF
MANY thanks go to DulceMell for updating this file to be 1.55 compatible! Simply download the new package marked 1.55.

I'm starting to wonder if EA hired a different icon design team for the Pets expansion.
After creating replacements for the Pet Relationship Icons (<clickable) which didn't fit the existing aesthetic, I noticed that the map tag icon for the equestrian centre is also the only one to be in full colour.
I don't like that it doesn't fit in with the rest so I made this replacement.



The file alters the icon to a white silhouette to match all other map tags.
You can still tell the equestrian centre from the training grounds as the horses in the icons face opposite directions, have different colour backgrounds and only the equestrian centre icon has a rider.

You can also feel safe in the knowledge that this will NOT alter the icons for the horse related traits.

The resource replaced by this file is the hud_mt_i_equestriancenter IMAG with Instance of 0xF08FFB0389CA547F.
The 1.42 and 1.55 versions additionally replace the ATLAS_MapTagColors_00 IMAG with Instance of 0x5CF1F035F4DCC34A.

Awesome, thanks. I was wondering whether I would have to do it, since I adored the relationship icon replacer but hated the fact that the equestrian centre was still stuck with a full colour icon -- but it only bugged me a bit: just enough to annoy me, not enough for me to do something about it. Seems like you got around to it without any prodding, so kudos!

It doesn't work with the new patch, 1.42.

Mera Benzema is right. It returns back to the cartoony icon.

I can't look at this at the moment I'm afriad as I don't have access to my Sims laptop. I should hopefully have it back by Thursday 29th so should be able to take a look that weekend.
I'll try to get it fixed as quickly as I can.

I really, really do want to get around to fixing this but the repair on my laptop with all my Sims files on it is taking a lot longer than originally planned. The supply company sent out the wrong part and it could be another fortnight before the replacement arrives.

We all totally understand. It's just the first time I've started playing with horses and I desperately need this mod.

The file has now been updated to function with the 1.42 patch / Seasons game. Please redownload and make sure to select the correct file. The file name has been updated so be sure to remove the old version first as the new one will NOT overwrite it automatically.

I tried to update this myself and was being confounded, since you were overwriting the only equestrian centre map tag in every FullBuild/DeltaBuild.package I could find. I didn't think to look for spritesheets that may just incidentally contain the icon.

Yeah, I believe that for whatever reason it hadn't been included on the main maptag image sheet up until this latest patch which is why this file stopped working. I was confused myself to begin with.

Thank you so much for the update. Despite how small and seemingly insignificant this fix is, it's still one of my favourite mods.
