Default Using the Invisible Driveway without Nightlife or FreeTime

As distributed, the EA driveway is only available if you have either Nightlife or FreeTime installed. If either of these EPs is available then this invisible recolour will work with the EA driveway. If you don't have either Nightlife or FreeTime then typically you won't have driveways or cars to put on them.

However, Numenor's Drivable Cars without NL together with EA's Driveway and Garage Set will provide driveways and cars to anyone with OFB or any later EP, or any Stuff Pack. The invisible recolour should work with the driveway provided in this set, although I haven't tried it.

This adds a level of realism to my Nature lots! Thank you so much. I love this even for traditional, modern lots. This allows brick and fancy stone driveways, terrains, you name it. ;) Thank you!

Thanks for this Sophie. Was looking at another artist's driveway with more downloads and views, but apparently considered unsupported as owner hasn't logged in for quite some time.

Excited to give yours a go! And excited to be getting back into The Sims 2 with my Ultimate Collection ^_^

Never really wanted an invisible driveway until I started making farms and medieval era houses. So thank you!

Fantastic, the normal grey or black spoil the look on a lot of properties especially rural :)
