Description

This mod includes overrides of a number of MODL resources of buyable trees, as well as the landscaping and streetlamps in non-editable public spaces, in order to stop them fading in Live Mode.

In addition to the trees, I’ve also included no-fade edits for a number of large shrubs that I felt faded at too far a distance. There are other shrubs, however—either buyable in the catalog or the ones in public spaces—that still fade, but at a distance I thought was reasonably close and not worth editing.

Important Stuff

Several of the trees and shrubs in public spaces are among those included in plasticbox’s Liberated Plants sets. Those items will also stop fading when placed on lots, if you have them.

There are two files in the download folder: FHRA_NoFade_Trees includes the buyable trees in the catalog. FHRA_NoFade_DecoTreesLights includes the landscaping and streetlamps in non-editable public spaces. I’ve separated them for people who may feel like one or the other would interfere with regular gameplay.

In the interest of avoiding redundancies, I made and tested this while using Shimrod’s no fade mod. While that mod stops the fading of harvestables and buyable shrubs (among other things), it does not affect the larger trees or the landscaping in public spaces—so that’s what I’ve focused on here. If you use this mod and find something that still fades when it shouldn’t, first make sure you have Shimrod’s mod installed too. Otherwise, please let me know!

Updated Info for Version 1.5.139

This patch stops object fading in the Tab Camera mode. However, they still fade at the same distance in Live Mode. So that means you can take out this mod if you'd prefer your trees to only stop fading with the Tab Camera.

The zip includes a text file listing all the resources included in both packages. Or click here:

@plasticbox

Thanks! Holy goodness was it ever--at least for the deco trees. I scrolled through all the OBJDs in the FullBuild package four times before I caught every tree I was looking for, and then I got to start and restart my game a hundred times trying to figure out which cryptically named tree was which. I'm glad to see it's finished too

@SellaSu I'm happy to hear it! Thank you for trying it out and checking back

Oh.

I'm wondering whether I should mention that one can search for catalogue tags as well in s4pe. Like that 0x0313 one, “Build_Buy_World_Objects” .. (You'd need to search for the COBJ, but then you know the instance. This is how I pulled out all that Liberated stuff.)

@plasticbox I had wondered if that would work, but when I tried I got an endless spinning cursor while it searched and I had to quit the program, so I figured s4pe couldn't do that. I may have done something wrong though. Oh well!

Thanks. Well, I don't understand that you could only choose one or you can install both files at once?

@intoxicated_and I explained in the description that I separated the trees for the convenience of those who wanted one kind or the other to still fade; one package has the buyable trees and the other has the landscaping and deco items in public spaces. It's up to you if you want one or the other, or both. There's other important info in the description as well.
