Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My medieval hood just wouldn't look right with blacktop roads, and I liked the look of Stev84's Country Roads but it was still just missing something for me. Thats when it dawned on me. Wheel ruts! Carts leave ruts in the road so I had to make a terrain that implied that, especially with all of hexameter's Horse Drawn Neighborhood Vehicles zipping around in my hood.

I've created two versions based on Stev84's previous work. (Thanks so much for letting me upload them!!!) One replaces the blacktop roads in the grass terrain and the other replaces everything in the dirt terrain to grass and my roads. Please see his threads to get terrain paint and flooring that is similar to my roads. Why reinvent the wheel?

I plan on using the dirt replacement in Riverblossom; that hood seems country enough, but I still want the rest of the hoods that are attached to it to have regular roads so it works out. The new terrain change cheat that came with FreeTime makes everything even easier.

I've been using the dirt replacement for a while now and everything is working fine. The dirt is grass and the roads are dirt just as they should. However, there's one thing that's bothering me - if I create a lot and then put it in my lot folder, the ground appears white on the picture. And even more bothering - if I use a big lot, some of it will look white. If I'm centered on a sim next to the mailbox the grass at the end of the lot will look white, and the whiteness moves around with the camera.
To get rid of it I have to cover the ground with the grass tool.
Is anyone else experiencing this? I'll try to get some pictures, but I recently re-installed the game and hasn't played it again since so I don't know if it will look the same now. And if someone is wondering; the reason I re-installed was to change the language.

Can you apply this to one neighbourhood? If not, can you attach it to a Terrain File in the CS4 Terrains menu to just change that one?
