If you want to know where you can find these new City Skylines in Willow Creek and how they look in game, please watch my Youtube Video:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: 4 New Willow Creek City Skyline Backdrop Replacements (it's only 2:10 minutes long)

If you want to make your own Willow Creek City Skyline Replacements or other backdrop replacements, please watch my Youtube Tutorial Video:
The Sims 4 Tutorial: How to make a Backdrop Replacements (It's only 9:09 minutes long)



Just found out New Crest uses the same city skyline, so in New Crest, your backdrop will change too, if you move one of the 4 packages into your Mods folder
(I just never opened New Crest before.. Sorry people for being such a bad Sims player.. )

4 New Willow Creek (and New Crest) City Skyline Replacements
This download contains 4 new Backdrops that appear instead of the Willow Creek City Skyline. (And New Crest)
You can use only one mod at the same time and you can choose between:
1. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (There is a small distortion issue with the Petronas Twin Towers, the game curves the texture resulting in 2 strange towers.)
2. New York, USA
3. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Christ the Redeemer, Corcovado)
4. Sydney, Australia

Object information:
You won't find these backdrops in build mode or whatsoever, as it's a World object override that can be found in Willow Creek when staring into the distance. (And all around New Crest) To easely find these backdrops, watch my youtube video by clicking on the first link at the top of this page. (Or look around all neighbourhoods in New Crest)
You can make some yourself, watching the second link at the top of this page.

This download is a resource override, this means that it will totally replace the Willow Creek City Skyline into one of the four new ones. ( And New Crest's )
You can only use ONE MOD at the same time. So don't put all 4 packages in your Mods folder, just select the one you want to see in your game.
If you want to have the original default city skyline back in your game, just remove the package file from your Mods folder.

This override may conflicts with overrides that are using the same resource: matteGCW_Backdrop_City_01 0000000000002cc5

Some other City Skyline Backdrop Replacements that I made, can be downloaded right here:
3 New City Skyline Replacement (Pack 2)
3 New City Skyline Replacement (Pack 3)
City Skyline Backdrop Remover
Apocalyptic City Skyline Replacement
Burning City Skyline Replacement
Overgrown City Skyline Replacement
Chicago City Skyline Replacement
Each of them also got a video showing how they will look in game at day- and nighttime.

Nice CC... But the Rio dosn't look similar, Because in Rio de Janeiro we have more skyscrapers, not so many trees!... I'm Brasilian.

I have to admit something terrible... I never opened New Crest before and I just saw that it is using the same backdrop, so I don't have to make one for New Crest, as that one will change too....
Have to add this to my description...AND FAST! The thing is, New Crest is using this same backdrop very much, sometimes 3x in a row, so you will get 3x New York. Only the main big background will have it just once.

So hate the Vegas thing in Oasis and hate the skyline in the new world with it's same house fifty times.Thank you, Thank you.
Just looked at tutorial. WOW! what happens if I mess up?

With the vegas thing in Oasis you ment the mountains and deserts? (as I don't see high buildings with lot's of lights and stuff...?)
You can't really mess up following my tutorial
No seriously, you can just remove the package file from your Mods folder and everything will be just as it was.

I just used an image of the statue standing on mount corcovado. The trees in front of it are from The Sims. But trees are far more beautiful then skyscrapers right?

Will add it to the list! Though a skyline of Paris wouldn't have the Eifel Tower or The Arc the Triumph as those are not be seen in the skyline.
I can put only the Eifel Tower in the background if you like...

I really like this MOD and then i say the "City Skyline" Replacement MODs. So i removed this MOD and put the new york city replacement city skiyline MOD

My question is why does Willow Creek not have the default City skyline anymore, or is it only in certain ares of willow creek you can see it??

for example: i see the replacement skyline in the neighborhood part of willow creek but not the city where the gym and clubs are.

I think you didn't looked in the right direction. There are also hills around the neighbourhoods.
