What does this do?

This is a tiny default replace texture mod which overrides the textures of the sparkly sparkle sparklieness that is splashed all over the place when you build walls in The Sims 3. Normally, I like sparkles, but seriously, it's like fairy farts all over the place just because you've laid down a wall.

This mod simply replaces the image for this particular effect - making it basically the same kind of mod as a default replacement skintone. As such, there should be no issues with compatability with any patches, EPs, or SPs - it should work fine with everything.

Get it combined:

All of my tiny texture replacers are available in one .package file, for your convenience. You may download either the single files, OR the combined file - not both!

How to install:

Just follow these instructions for fun and profit!

Delphy, for making it possible with his giant brain of doom.

The crazy gang of other brainy folks who figured out the gubbins.

This mod was one of the default mods to demonstrate that one installed the framework setup properly and I am loving it enough to reply.

I could also swear the mod may have even improved the speed of my game but I might just be giddy at successfully starting my modding hobby. Anyway, nice work!

Love your mods, but want my sparkles back (unless it's true what people are saying about the sparkles slowing down the game and so. Is it true?). What should I do to uninstall it?
