This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Here is a snow rug in 16 varieties. It is for the case if one want the ground just be partly covered with snow, like this:

Why a snow rug?
- You see, this rug makes some effects that the terrain paint don't have.
- An other advantage is that one must not change the whole exist (green) terrain paint.
- Furthermore, one can place it on other floor levels.
- One can also place it a little out of the boundarys of a lot.
- Of course, if you want, it works also with snow terrains. I leave the terrain be green in my example, so that you can see the forms of snowdrifts better. It matches the default first snow terrain by SimCookie, too.

The first eight varieties of this item have the similar textures like my snow wall effect 3. The screenshot above gives you an example of using these textures. I find these snowdrifts looks great with different day lights.

One can resize them and put them together in different possibilities. The textures are sorted after the order which is indicated here:

and here:

I've added the eight further varieties to decorate house edges.
If you put these rugs to house edge in grid, you will see a slit between them. You should hold "Alt" and move it slightly off grid to house edge.
To place the textures 15 and 16 to a corner of house, you must enable MOO cheat.

Here is an example of using this part rugs. They match my snow wall effect set, too.

You will find it under decoration/rug.

I hope you will have good ideas by using my snow effect items!

Nice effect. It helps in the wait for seasons.
